Star Wars Costume Spotlight: Wicket the Ewok
For the next costume spotlight I’ve chosen everyone’s fan favorite furry teddy bear friend from Return of the Jedi, Wicket the Ewok!
If you remember, Wicket was the one who helped Princess Leia when she was about to be taken into custody by a couple of Imperial Bikerscouts. After he helped her out, Wicket then took Leia to his village so that his people could protect her.
When hearing C-3PO’s story about the Rebellion and Empire, Wicket and his tribe agreed to help the Rebellion locate the shield generator so they can destroy it. The tribe also helped defeat all of the Empire’s Imperial forces and then had a big celebration of victory.
