The Cast of ‘The Mandalorian’ Has Been Released

As you may already know Disney is making a streaming service complete with exclusive content and one of its earliest gifts to all us Star Wars fans is a live-action Star Wars series called The Mandalorian. Since the news of the show was released a few months ago I have been so excited about this series and now the official cast for the show has been announced. So, here are the actors that will help bring The Mandalorian to life.

Pedro Pascal

As you may have seen about a month ago I wrote a post highlighting my excitement that Narcos actor Pedro Pascal was set to play the lead in The Mandalorian. Of course, it was all but confirmed but now that LucasFilm has announced the cast it’s official. He will be the man beneath the Mandalorian mask.

Was the Mid-Season Finale of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Worth It?

Nine weeks, ten episodes, and we have finally reached the midway conclusion of the first season of Star Wars: Resistance. The question is; was it worth it? Yes, and no.

This week’s episode Station Theta Black was exciting to a certain extent and yet it didn’t grab my attention as much as I would have hoped a Star Wars finale should. It featured Poe Dameron and Kazuda Xiono on a top-secret mission for the Resistance and while it did also include Captain Phasma into the story I just was a tad bit bored.

Maybe I’ve given up caring about this series ever since the dismal episode two weeks ago (The Platform Classic) but it just seemed that the episode was trying to be worthy of a finale rather than just being good.

I loved Poe Dameron’s involvement in the episode because, well, it’s Poe! but unfortunately, he wasn’t even able to make this a finale worth getting pumped about. It was so mediocre in fact that I don’t even care in which direction the series may take once it returns because I’m honestly not that interested.

Now, if the second portion of the series starts to feature Kylo Ren, General Hux, or maybe even Snoke into the mix then maybe I’ll finally start getting excited about this series. Until then my reaction to Star Wars: Resistance is meh.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day. May the Force be with you.

‘Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures’ Continues To Impress With Its Latest Shorts

Disney released a new animated series focusing on some of the most iconic Star Wars characters and their most memorable moments and five more entries in the series have arrived. So, of course, I’m here to share them with you. Enjoy!

Chewie vs. Holochess-Let the Wookie Win

I liked this short but I didn’t love it. Chewbacca is, more than anything, a very nice character but if you’ve never watched Star Wars before this short makes it seem like he’s mean. I don’t know if I exactly that.

Chewie can have his moments but he’s nowhere near as ferocious as this short makes him seem.

Throwback Friday: My Review of ‘The Last Jedi’ Novel

This has become quite the eventful Friday. The highly anticipated trailer for Avengers: Endgame just dropped. I’m still trying process the fact that I’ve seen actual, legitimate footage from Avengers: Endgame which is SO awesome. I’m also trying to calm down after seeing Ronin who looked so ridiculously cool that I’m still hyperventilating. But, I must stick to the normalcy of the week and share with you all a Throwback Friday post.

This week I’m revisiting my review of The Last Jedi novel which is such an amazing book. I hope you enjoy. 🙂

Finn and Rose

really loved the dynamic between Finn and Rose in the novel. In the movie, it doesn’t ever delve deep into the details of their evolving relationship but after reading the book I have a completely different view on not only their companionship in the film but on Rose as a character as well. For a great deal of the novel, we see her annoyance with Finn. She didn’t like his constant harping on Rey and she was peeved by his naivety. As much as he got on nerves, however, she gradually began to realize how good a man he really was. It was almost, to her, strange to see a man who was once a stormtrooper have such an innocence about him and his kind heart is what led to her liking him…a lot.

By the time she saved him from sacrificing himself on the salt plains of Crait you realize just how much she actually loves him and it’s really sweet. I already liked Rose before but now I really like her thanks to the novel.

‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Regains Its Enjoyment

If you read my review of last week’s Star Wars: Resistance episode you will know that I was less than pleased. The Platform Classic was boring beyond belief, causing me to officially nominate it as the worst animated series that LucasFilm has created under Disney’s direction. It didn’t help when the animated shorts belonging to the new series Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures were even more enjoyable than Star Wars: Resistance. This week, however, the animated series was able to regain its momentum with an enjoyable episode that helped make this show somewhat interesting again.

Torra Doza

What also made this episode more intriguing than most was its focus on Torra Doza, a character we haven’t really seen up to this point, which is for a specific reason. Her father, Captain Doza, doesn’t like her to leave her room to roam the Colossus when the First Order is present. You could say, she’s somewhat the Star Wars equivalent of a princess locked away in a tower.

To learn more about her character was very interesting indeed and it’s kind of a shame that the series waited until the next to last episode to introduce her in a fulfilling fashion.

All in all, this series still isn’t anywhere near as good as its predecessors (which is obvious from its 4.7 out of 10 stars on IMDb) but at least this episode left me feeling happier than last week’s.

I’ll give this episode 86 out of a 100 and 3.5 out of 5 stars. It’s not great but it is good.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.

Darth Vader or Kylo Ren: Who’s Your Favorite?

It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for another weekly segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Last week’s segment was a fun one as I asked all of you who your favorite Justice League hero is? This week I’m heading back to a galaxy far, far away and giving you another fun topic; Darth Vader versus Kylo Ren. Both of these characters have delighted us, scared us, and provided their respective trilogies complex and engaging storylines that keep us coming back for more. And that’s why I made them the topic of this week’s segment. Enjoy!

Darth Vader

Darth Vader has had quite the journey. As a young man, he was an accomplished Jedi Knight who was believed to be the Chosen One who would bring peace back to the galaxy. But Palpatine had another plan in mind.

He used Anakin’s deepest, darkest fears against him and turned him into the heavy-breathing, lightsaber-wielding, masked-cyborg, Darth Vader.

Nick Nolte Joins ‘The Mandalorian’

Recent news surrounding the casting of The Mandalorian has excited Star Wars fans as we learned the news that Narcos actor, Pedro Pascal would play the lead of the live-action series, Deadpool actress/WWE fighter Gina Carano also was revealed to play a lead in the show, and now it’s been announced that 3-time Oscar-nominated actor, Nick Nolte is also set to join the series.

I haven’t seen any of his movies but I’m sure he will be a great addition to the show. He also has a rugged look which will perfectly match the undoubtedly gritty style of the series.

This is great news and my excitement for this series is growing! 🙂

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
