With the release of the latest chapter – the Force Awakens – Star Wars has seen a big jump as fans have shown their excitement for the latest stories from long ago in a galaxy far, far away. Based on the conversations from social media and official reviews, it’s no surprise the latest movie that came out last December has made more than $1 billion in the international box office.
Star Wars is one of the biggest trends in consumerism with people who watched the original trilogy during their childhood now introducing their children to the science-fiction phenomena. Even the chief executive officer of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, even got swept up in the hype by dressing up his newborn daughter as a Jedi – which collected more than 3 million likes online.
It didn’t take long for other parents to follow suit with pictures of their babies dressed up in a variety of costumes to portray a variety of characters from the well-known to the more obscure. Consider the following 15 padawans having a good start in studying the Force.
