There has been an awakening. Have you felt it? 

 

With Star Wars back on top of the box office, we see a wide range of emotions. Most fans, and critics, are fond of Episode VII: The Force Awakens. As with any movie, there are those that don’t agree. Very few filmmakers can endure a wrath as powerful as angry Star Wars superfine. Perhaps no one knows this more than original series creator George Lucas. When Lucas released the much reviled Special Edition Star Wars movies in the late 90’s, he altered an iconic scene where Han Solo shoots at bounty hunter in a cantina so that Han dodges a shot and fires second. It was ridiculous, it was cartoonish, and it ruined a classic moment of cinema. It also gave rise to the rally cry of fans everywhere: Han shot first. 

 

“Han Shot First” has been a popular fan t-shirt among Star Wars fans since the release of the Special Editions. There’s even a photo floating around online of George Lucas wearing one. The shirt became a way for Star Wars fans to rebel (Luke Skywalker style) against creative decisions beyond their control and as a way of identifying other mega fans out in the world. Here’s an idea: make yourself an anti-Jar-Jar shirt. That’s bound to get a fist bump or two from fellow fans. 

 

Custom t-shirts are a great way for fans to rebel, but what about using a custom tee to join the party? TR-8R, the loyal Stormtrooper who fights Finn with a riot battalion, has become a fan favorite online meme. What better way to show the traitors in your life that disloyalty will not be tolerated than a shirt commemorating the most loyal of the First Order Stormtroopers? 

 

Star Wars is eternal, so show your love for the franchise with a custom shirt. WhoopTee has options with no minimum order, perfect for a one-off fan love letter of a shirt.
