Storm Troopers Take Over Beacon Hill
Boston, MA– In the past month, it probably seems like pop culture has been completely and utterly dominated by conversation surrounding the conclusion to two of the most popular stories ever put to screen: Avengers: Endgame, the final film in Marvel's Infinity Saga in their cinematic universe, and Game of Thrones, which is in the final season of a decades-spanning fantasy epic. To have both of these stories within just days of each other is a nerd's dream.
But the past couple of months have also been kind to another epic story that will also feature a conclusion of sorts in 2019: Star Wars. From 1977 to 1983, Star Wars released its original trilogy, before releasing a (lesser) trilogy of prequels starting in 1999, and finally creating sequels to the original films, beginning in 2015 with The Force Awakens.
Now, in 2019, the final chapter of the "Skywalker Saga," as it has been dubbed, will be released in December as a ninth installment entitled, The Rise of Skywalker. This announcement was made during last month's Star Wars Celebration, which came ahead of May the 4th, colloquially known as Star Wars Day. So for fans of the space stories, there has been no dearth of content. This is doubly true for some Beacon Hill residents who have found the window sill outside of their apartment become festooned with Star Wars characters.
A resident of the area has potted some plants for the arrival of the spring season, and has presumably placed the Storm Troopers strategically in order to ensure the plants stay in line and grow as expected. The Beacon Hill Seed Troopers, so named observant Redditor u/interpolactic, are most certainly guarding the earthbound plants outside of this Beacon Hill residence, so be warned. Kylo Ren is probably behind this.
Of course, as we have seen in the movies, there is one Storm Trooper, Finn, who becomes a hero in the story. Perhaps, one of these guards is just waiting to defect and betray his plant protection. May the fauna be with them.
