An armada of Star Wars vehicles, electric cars covered in foil and silver colored wrapping and other contraptions circled Marigny Saturday night as the Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus paraded.

Many subkrewes and marchers costumed as characters from the Star Wars saga, some purists in replica costumes and others in Star Wars mashups, such as the Krewe Le Bon Tauntaun Roule. Vehicles ranged from artistically and electronically involved cars and bicycles to cardboard covered shopping carts. There also were groups inspired by Star Trek, E.T., Harry Potter, Alien, The Smurfs, Wonder Woman, Ghostbusters, the horror film Sharknado, Doctor Who, Men in Black, Avatar and many other sci-fi and fantasy titles. There were separate rolling stripper poles manned by alien creatures.
