Balancing the Cuteness Factor: When Tauntauns Look Like Bunny Rabbits

February 12, 2014 – One of Star Wars‘ recurring challenges has been how to appeal to different segments of the general audience without alienating them – what I call the “cuteness factor”. Consider these examples:
♥ R2-D2 and C-3PO as the squabbling couple? DEFINITELY CUTE
♥ Ewoks? PRETTY DARN CUTE (though some people might disagree)
♥ Yoda as the diminutive, aged, harmless Judge-Me-By-My-Size-Do-You-Hmmmm Jedi Master? CUTE & COOL
♥ JarJar Binks? DEFINITELY NOT CUTE AND PRETTY INSULTING

But hurry! If you want to purchase the Tshirt, the $10.00 sale ends in less than 24 hours. Click this link to view it.
