A few winters ago saw the creation of Jabba The Snowman; now, in honor of the current snowpocalypse, here’s a Tauntaun Snowman!
A Redditor posted a photo of a Tauntaun, the animal patrol mount from the Star Wars universe, made of snow, complete with this friend sitting atop it as though he’s riding the creature.
Check out the photo here below.
Snow Tauntaun looks pretty damn good!
In the second Star Wars film, 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back, Luke Skywalker is seen riding a tauntaun on the frozen planet of Hoth. When Luke fails to return to the Rebel Base after he and his ride are attacked by a Wampa, Han Solo then goes out on a tauntaun to look for his friend. In a classic scene from the film, Han is advised against leaving the base so late in the day when the temperature is dropping. (C-3PO translates that R2-D2 calculates the chances of survival are 725 to 1.) “Your tauntaun’ll freeze before you reach the first marker,” he’s warned, to which he replies, “Then I’ll see you in Hell!”
