I don’t know where the name “space dad” came from. I assume it was on social media, probably Tumblr. It’s very similar to the term “space twins”, which definitely came from social media, and I’ve seen it used everywhere since.
So I figured we should vote on who we think is the best “space dad” in the Star Wars universe and why? I will keep this just to the Star Wars cinematic universe (that is, including TV/streaming shows as well) to keep things simple, but there are quite a few examples just from the SCU alone.
I’ll post the images, and you can all vote on who you think the best Space Dad is in the SCU and why! Doesn’t that sound like fun! 😆😁
Okay, so on with the show… first up, it’s Din Djarin as Grogu’s space dad. Could he be the best space dad in the SCU? Let’s take a vote! Get to those comments, people and let me know!
Din Djarin and Grogu
Are you voting for Din Djarin as the best space dad? I mean, just look at him cradling Grogu. 😅
Han Solo and Ben Solo
Han and Ben in TRoS – still one of my favourite scenes in that film. Not much to go on; at least Han was there at the beginning of Ben’s redemption.
We don’t have a lot to go on other than Luke turned out to be amazing, so some of that must have come from Owen and Beru.
Bail Organa brought up Leia, and look how she turned out… geez, this is going to be a tough one. 😅
I know that at least two of these choices are not as prominent as the other two (being Han and Din Djarin) because we have more material to work with. But take into consideration who the children became, particularly Luke and Leia growing up with adopted parents.
So let me know in the comments who you choose OR let me know of another Space Dad, not on the list that you have chosen and why!
See ya in tomorrow’s post or in the comments, friends!
