The Star Wars franchise has a lot going on across its films, books, video games, animated series and, of course, the overwhelming amount of merchandise. Whether it’s part of the main canon or not, it all includes healthy doses of sci-fi, fantasy, action, romance, adventure and, at many times, pure and utter nonsense.
But as true fans already know, the nonsense is actually a large part of what makes the world of Star Wars so great. These stories don’t have to be serious and make sense all the time, and there’s a certain sense of entertainment and wonder in that fact alone. From the 1977’s Episode IV: A New Hope (then just Star Wars) to last year’s Solo, this franchise is nothing if not silly and nonsensical. Basically, if you’re not having fun with it, you’re doing it wrong.
That said, there are definitely some things that make even less sense than others — things that leave us all going, “Wait, what?” no matter how many times we watch them play out. While some of these situations do have fan theories attempting (repeat, attempting) to back them up, others don’t seem to have any reason behind them whatsoever other than someone at the time of production just shrugging their shoulders and giving a careless thumbs up. Still, it all makes for some great debate fodder among fans.
