Stormtroopers Unmasked

Stormtroopers, like Darth Vader, the Death Star, and all of the other classic Star Wars features, are undeniably iconic. Despite their reputation for not being able to aim, they nonetheless have a frightening presence. Their helmet designs were supposed to imitate skulls, and they were originally created to seem “terrifying, but also incredibly sleek, super clean.” Stormtroopers will always be the originals, despite the fact that a variety of “troopers” have appeared since then.

George Lucas And Ewoks

There’s no disputing that the Ewoks are a contentious part of Star Wars folklore. This is owing to their remarkable likeness to teddy bears, in part. Return of the Jedi director George Lucas needed a tribe of primitive beings to help him take down the Empire, so he used the fuzzy animals. Originally, Luke, Han, and Leia were supposed to be aided by a race of Wookiees, but this proved to be too costly.
