Top 5 Star Wars References in the Spiral

Did you know that May the 4th is Star Wars Day? This fun play on the quote “may the Force be with you” is a day for everyone to celebrate their love of the Star Wars universe. And here at KingsIsle is no exception. There are a lot of Star Wars fans here who have helped to create KingsIsle games. And if you pay close attention, you’ll see evidence of this in the fun Easter Eggs hidden throughout the Spiral.

 

 

Luke Skywalker

Not only are the developers of Wizard101 big Star Wars fans, so are our players. And this is evidenced by the most popular name for boy Wizards, Luke Skywalker. This was even the name of the first character ever created in Wizard101! Do you have a Skywalker character of your own?

Hannibal Onetusk

This smuggler may seem a little familiar to fans of the Star Wars films. He’s the captain of the ship Zafarian Queen and needs your help to fix the ship’s drive system.  With his signature black vest, Hannibal might remind you a lot of one scruffy looking nerf-herder named Han Solo!

Dyvim in Amber

*spoiler alert* The poisoning of your mouse friend, Dyvim WhiteHart in Khrysalis is one of the most surprising story elements in the game. Dyvim is subsequently trapped in Amber and needs your help to escape. This memorable moment harkens back to one of the most famous Star Wars scenes, when Han Solo is frozen in Carbonite. Luckily Dyvim, much like Han, makes a miraculous recovery from this terrible fate.

Scrimshaw

Wizard101 isn’t the only KingsIsle game with some fun Star Wars references hidden throughout. During the character creation section of Pirate101, if you choose that your pirate is from Skull Island, Mr. Gandry pops in with a famous quote. He describes the island as “..a wretched hive of scum, and…” just like Obi-wan described Mos Eisley.

That’s no Moon!

During the quest “Guns of Marleybone” in Pirate101, you are tasked with exploring the armored Armada station used to supply their ships. Gracie Conrad is eager to accompany you on this dangerous mission. As you approach the station, Bonnie Anne quips, “Look at that, would ye! The bit up top looks like a giant salad spoon!” Then one of your other companions will chime in with the familiar-sounding phrase “That’s no spoon, it’s a Sky Station!”

The Spiral is full of fun, pop-culture references and Star Wars is an iconic source of inspiration. So, roll up your very own Luke Skywalker today and may the Force be with you!

    I like the Star Trek references as well. I still laugh when I see Guillermo Shatterer.

    since it was only on the air for one season, i wonder how many p101 players recognise the whole quest line that follows firefly?
