501st Legion

  The 501st Legion is an elite team of clone troopers that assists Anakin Skywalker in exacting Order 66, the Emperor’s fateful command to exterminate all of the Jedi in Revenge of the Sith (2005).

The organization shown in the movies was inspired by the real life unofficial Star Wars Imperial costuming organization, called the 501st Legion. The organization’s goal, as their website says, is for “the bad guys to do good” by celebrating the Star Wars franchise, promoting the Star Wars experience (in part through the accuracy of their costumes), and contributing to the community through charity work and fundraising.
