The Top 3 Friendships in Star Wars

Friendship is one of the strongest themes in the Star Wars franchise. It’s just amazing to see how important the role of friendship is played throughout the films. Specifically, in the Empire Strikes Back, it’s shown just how much Luke’s strong friendships shaped the destiny of the galaxy. So without further ado, the following are my top 3 favorite friendships in the Star Wars franchise.

1. Luke and Biggs.

I absolutely love how A New Hope (all too briefly) shows the relationship between the farm boy and his friend. Luke is longing to follow Biggs to the academy and then join him and Rebellion. There are aspects to this friendship that show how one person can positively inspire another. Sadly, it was destined to end all too soon, but the weight of the tragedy of Biggs’ death at the end of ANH is certainly impactful.

2 Han Solo and Chewbacca.

Who's Scruffy Lookin???

Han Solo’s relationship with Chewbacca is almost the greatest relationship in the entire Star Wars franchise. And I say almost simply because I’m saving the best for last, but from the beginning, we get a true sense of Chewbacca’s loyalty to Han.The central theme of their relationship is how Chewy is so loyal to him, and would do anything for him. Without saying a word the audience understands that Chewbacca would die for Han, and that’s important to see. I think we understand that Han felt the same way about Chewy .

Now please dear heavenly father, don’t let Chewie die Episode VII.

3. Oh you know it. Its gotta be C-3PO and R2D2.

R2D2 it IS you!

Two of the most lovable droids in the Star Wars galaxy. There’s something about their snippy candid insults, you just know they must be truly great friends. Because, after all, good friends have the right to enjoy a little a little ribbing every once in awhile. But when it comes down to the serious stuff, R2 and 3PO are always willing to work together to save the day. Whether its shutting down all of the trash compactors, or R2 being willing to stick up for 3PO when Owen is getting ready to purchase the droids, these instances just show what truly great friends they are. I personally couldn’t be happier that R2 and (I assume) 3PO will be Episode VII.

So what are your favorite friendships in the galaxy far, far away?
