It's the last day of May, and you know what that means...it's also the last day of Star Wars Takeover Month. *sighs, sheds many tears*
Yes, it is very sad, BUT--I'm planning to do it again in December 2019 for the release of Episode IX. That is, admittedly, a long way off, but you can go ahead and mark your calendars now! As for this Star Wars Takeover Month, let's get to the final results of Solo: An Escape Story, the interactive story that you voted in last week.
With a critical Rebel summit on Yavin IV nearing, Han Solo has escaped prison, knocked out an Imperial officer, and sneaked onto an Imperial launch bay. But when he's stopped by a commander for questioning, he's faced with two risky options:
Success! The commander clears him to board the Imperial prisoner transport as it's preparing to take off. Once it's off the ground, Han slips into the cockpit and, blasting the stormtroopers, assumes control of the vessel, while Chewie takes care of the guards in the back.
With all the Imperials neutralized, Chewie asks, "Uughghhhgh aarrragghuuhw huuguughghg uughghhhgh aguhwwgggghhh?"
"The prisoners? Mothma might find 'em useful," Han replies, flipping some switches on the control board. "We got some free disguises, anyway. Setting course for Yavin IV."
Chewie enters the cockpit and takes a seat next to him. Han smiles. He and Chewie had been through a lot together--most of which they shouldn't have survived. But they did. Hopefully the Rebellion does, too, he thought as the ship whined, the stars morphed into a blue stream of light, and they screamed away towards Yavin.
And that's it! I'd love to hear your thoughts about how you enjoyed this interactive story--maybe we can do it again next December. Thanks for joining me for Star Wars Takeover Month! It's been an absolute blast. Stay tuned for the results of the giveaway on my Facebook page.
May the Force be with you!
