The 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back

The 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back | Anakin and His Angel

The Empire Strikes Back has always been my favorite film of the Old Trilogy. I love the flirtatiousness and romance between Han Solo and Princess Leia, the strong presence of the Dark Side, and the cliff hanger ending where the "bad guys" actually won. I never expected that! Though, I will say, I feel lucky that I got to watch these movies back to back by the time I saw them. I can't imagine waiting three years to find out what happened next after a conclusion like that!

Not long into the film, we were introduced to many iconic entities that truly made the planet Hoth even more exciting. Imperial Probe Droids, Taun Tauns, a vicious Wampa, Snowspeeders, Snowtroopers, AT-STs, and one of my all time favorites - the AT-ATs! I decided I wanted to celebrate TESB's 40th anniversary by getting bundled up, as if I were traveling to Hoth, and grabbing a couple of my treasured collectibles including a Taun Taun from the Creature Stall at Galaxy's Edge and the new Hoth mug from the shopDisney website. I never thought I would own a Taun Taun plush the size of a Build-A-Bear but I'm so happy that it's a Star Wars item that exists. It's poseable and even makes movie-accurate sounds! As for the mug, it captures so much of what I love about Hoth. I think Starbucks did a great job collaborating with Disney on this item. I hope they continue this line of Star Wars planet-themed mugs (they've also made ones for Bespin and Dagobah, in case you didn't know).

All of the items I'm wearing are pieces that are now sold out otherwise I'd share links to them with you. Be sure to follow me on my social media channels as I'll be sharing more photos from this shoot!
