Luke Skywalker (the lgbt community) initiates a plan to rescue Han Solo (socialism) from the crime lord Jabba the Hutt (capitalism) with the help of Princess Leia (the feminist movement) andLando Calrissian (the black community). After Luke (the lgbt community) survives his battle with Jabba’s Rancor (congressional opposition to the Employment Non-Discrimination Act), Jabba (capitalism) sentences him and Han (socialism) to death by taking them to the great pit of Carkoon (the senate), where Luke (the lgbt community) frees himself and battles Jabba’s guards (the republican party). During the chaos, Boba Fett (the increasingly disestablished evangelical christian middle class) attempts to attack Luke (the lgbt community), but falls into the Sarlacc pit (the subprime mortgage crisis).
After being trapped for 30 years in the Great Pit of Carkoon, infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett makes a death defying escape and finds himself fighting alongside the Rebellion to establish a New Republic.
30 Day Star Wars Challenge: Day Eleven - Favourite Battle
It was a close call. I love the Battle of Endor, with the Ewoks aiding the Rebels, but also loved the Battle of Kashyyyk where the Wookies wupped arse.
Although not as manic as on Kashyyyk, and not as long scale as Endor, I have an affection for the Battle of the Great Pit of Carkoon.
This Battle was fought in 4ABY on Tatooine. After Han Solo was frozen in carbonite and taken to crime lord Jabba the Hutt’s palace, Leia and Chewbacca attempted rescues but were ultimately captured (Leia succeeded in unfreezing Solo beforehand.) After sending R2-D2 and C-3PO to serve Jabba in exchange for a meeting, Luke attempted his own rescue.
It didn’t go to plan however, as Luke was fed to the Rancor - or so Jabba thought - Luke was able to kill the Rancor, leading Jabba to condemn him, Solo and Chewbacca to an alternative fate: The Sarlacc.
Upon reaching the Great Pit of Carkoon, where the Sarlaac lived, luke was the first to be pushed into the pit and thus, the battle began.
What the others didn’t know was that R2 was carrying Luke’s lightsaber so that it was kept safe and hidden for when he needed. Luke sprang from the board he was pushed off and grabbed his blade fighting off Jabba’s mercenaries, and managed to save the others, including a disguised Lando Calrissian.
Leia, during the chaos killed Jabba himself before making her escape with the droids, and all left hastily when Luke fired the Sail barge’s cannons on itself, destroying all that was on it.
Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, Lando, R2 and 3PO weren’t the only survivors however. Many of Jabba’s Court escaped with their lives including his longest serving Majordomo, Bib Fortuna, accountant Tessek, information broker, Saelt-Marae, and weapons expert Hermi Odle. The members of the Max Rebo had previously departed the Sail barge, and a few slaves had escaped as free people.
Boba Fett, who was thought to have eaten by the Sarlacc, was later regurgitated as his mandalorian armor was indigestible and caused the Sarlacc pain.
The battle ultimately saw the end of Hutt Cartel, and temporary disbanding of Jabba’s Criminal Empire.
