Thanks to J.J. Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy and Disney, a whole new generation has fallen head-over-lightsabers in nerdy love with the magic of the STAR WARS universe, less the truly unfortunate tragedies of enduring the awful, awful prequels.
With those newborn love affairs, comes an introduction to the galaxy far, far away’s uniquely ubiquitous merchandising rooted, in our humble opinions, within two supreme principles: one, this cash cow’s milk hasn’t run dry in nearly 40 years; and two, there is absolutely no wrong time to honor three of geekdom’s most sacred blockbusters.
When dinnertime arguments erupt over whether REVENGE OF THE SITH compares at all to RETURN OF THE JEDI, whether Darth Maul or Boba Fett was a more tragically misued badass or whether the Ewoks or Jar Jar Binks more deserve to be cleansed with fire, strike a blow for the original three masterpieces with these four superb STAR WARS Five-Piece Dinner Sets when dishes start flying across the room.
Some people simply need a little additional convincing that no one got it ever so right quite like George Lucas, Lawrence Kasdan, Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and company. Each set honors an iconic and beloved setting of the original trilogy: the desert scoundrel hub of Tattooine, childhood home to two generations of the great Skywalker family; the frozen wasteland of Hoth; Cloud City, backdrop to the betrayal of Han Solo and final resting place of Luke Skywalker’s hand; and, of course, the imposing and formidable Death Star.
Personally, we find that nothing drives home “Han shot first AND last!” quite like the might of the Empire’s supreme battlestation upside one’s head. May the forks be with you.
