so, after watching the empire strikes back and return of the jedi in spanish with trina, i can conclusively provide you with a list of words/names that sound funny when pronounced with a spanish accent:
- jedi
- luke
- obi-wan kenobi
- darth vader
- r2-d2 (it's still "artoo detoo," in case you were wondering, not like "er dos de dos," although that would also be awesome)
- chewbacca
- chewie

i can also provide evidence that trina and i are awesome:

obi-wan ghost: *appears like 20 feet away from luke*
me: why'd he do that? couldn't he just appear right next to luke and not make him have to walk all that way?
trina: well, he had to look all cool and come out of the forest... obi-wan can't just appear like, at super wal-mart!
me: oh. but... that's not super wal-mart!

and throughout the rest of the movie we kept pointing out things that were not super wal-mart. and, there are a lot of things that aren't super wal-mart.

other important topics of discussion: what would they do without r2-d2? why do so many appendages get lopped off in these movies? why aren't there more incidents of lightsaber-poking? doesn't jabba usually speak with subtitles? is yoda going to talk backwards in spanish? (answer: yes) why is yoda such a jerk? (answer: unclear)

so, man, los guerros estrellas son muy awesom! (i have no idea if "guerros estrellas" is the right spanish title, that stuff was still in english. it still sounds cool. guerros estrelllllllas.)
