I have to admit that I am a little sad that Ewok Week is coming to an end. When the idea was conceived, I wasn’t really sure how I would approach it or what I would do for it. Quite frankly, over the summer, I just started making it up in my head, throwing ideas around and seeing what  made sense. Somethings I was planning to do, like an exploration of Ewok religion, I didn’t end up doing (I will at some point in the future). But other things I hadn’t even considered, like writing about Ewok Jerky, came to me at the last minute. I suppose that is just how the creative process works.

Putting all of that aside, though, what I am truly sad about is that with the end of Ewok Week comes the end of my months of obsessing about Ewoks. This hardly means I will stop loving them, or stop enjoying them, or stop thinking about them. It just means that it is time to move on to other Star Wars-y things – and oh do I have a lot coming up for you all! But who knows, perhaps an Ewok-related post or two will find its way onto the blog again, or, maybe someday, I will put together Ewok Week 2.0. And in the meantime, maybe some more Ewok Haikus or Fan Feelings on Ewoks will trickle in from a few more fans.

Speaking of you fans of Star Wars and The Imperial Talker, I want to thank you for helping to make Ewok Week a success! Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would receive the support and fangagament that I did this entire week. Plus, I want to extend a HUGE thanks to all of you who took the time to submit pictures, haikus, and your feelings on Ewoks. When the next week-long series rolls around, I hope that you not only submit again, but that others do so as well!

And so, I need to ask you all a question: What should the NEXT week-long series be about?

Perhaps you want a week devoted to Droids?  Or just R2 and 3PO? the Clone Troopers? Gungans? should we go small again and focus on Jawas? or get larger and think about the Hutts? Or maybe a week on the Empire?

These are all just ideas I have kicked around, but it’s time for you decide. Do you want one of these or do you have something else in mind?

Send me an email, tell me in a comment below, send me a Tweet @ImperialTalker, or leave a comment on Facebook with what you want the next week-long event to be!! And, once I tally everything together, I will let y’all know where we are heading!

Also, feel free to send me your feedback on Ewok Week, and other suggestions to include in the next week-long series. I am always open to hearing from the fans and trying new things, so don’t shy away.

From me and all the Ewoks, thanks for making Ewok Week so fun and so great!!! Yub Yub!!!

  1. Obviously Gungan Week should be next, followed by a history of all of the entrants in the Boonta Eve Classic… then maybe Wookiee Week for the alliteration, followed by an in depth analysis of minor characters like the several Admirals choked to death by Vader.

    1. Love the idea, Mr. Baldwin! Bounty hunters are sort of have this omnipresence in Star Wars. No matter where you turn, you will find them. Really, if you strip away the Rebellion and Empire (or Republic and Separatists, or the First Order and Resistance) what you are left with is a criminally charged universe with a lot of people for hire to hunt down bounties. I will be giving this idea a lot of thought!

  2. I like the idea of going more in depth on the Hutts. It is easy to see the Hutts as one-dimensional, as they are portrayed in the films. Perhaps more insight into Hutt culture and custom with a detailed look at some famous Hutts from the Old Republic through the New Republic eras?

    1. There is a very VERY good possibility that a Hutt Week will be happening at some point in the future. Even if it isn’t the absolute next week-long series, it will happen. I have always been fascinated by Jabba and the whole of the criminal underworld in Star Wars. I was happy that The Clone Wars took us to Nal Hutta and am pretty psyched that Nar Shaddaa is making an appearance in one of the comic series. Plus, the new Uprising game has your character explore a former Hutt world (Mataou). Of course, I might need some help with the Hutts in The Old Republic since I haven’t played it tooooo much, so when the time comes perhaps I will pick your brain and/or ask you to write something for me (if you would be up for it).
