The Funny Thing About Star Wars
Is that it actually is funny.
All Jar Jars aside, Star Wars has been crushing it in the comedy department for more than thirty years. Between Han's quips, Chewie's grunts, and the bountiful stock of B-quality muppet costumes, Lucasfilm's famed franchise has used humor to define it's distinctive tone for decades. The series gets a lot of acclaim for its spectacular vision, but would we love Star Wars as much if it weren't so damn funny?
