What’s Your Favorite Leia Moment?

It’s another Sunday and that means it’s time to visit another segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Today, however, is rather special for Star Wars fans around the world because it is the late-great Carrie Fisher’s birthday (she would’ve been 62.) So, to honor the woman who has brought so many smiles to people across the globe, she is the subject of today’s Who’s Your Favorite?

Now, Leia has countless memorable moments during her time in this franchise but I’m going to take at least one exciting moment from each film that she’s graced for this list. Enjoy!

1. A Rogue One Surprise

Rogue One brought some fantastic surprises near the end of the film as it swiftly led into A New Hope‘s story and one of those shocking reveals was CGI Leia. Not only was it brilliant but it proved that technology could be used in truly exciting ways for future Star Wars films.

Palpatine Needs a ‘Star Wars’ Story

Before Solo, it seemed that there would be many more Star Wars standalone films to get excited for but with the dismal failure of Solo‘s box-office run Disney CEO Bob Iger has announced that production for Star Wars movies in the future was going to slow down after Episode IX. When that happened all of the incredible ideas that could’ve been converted into Star Wars films was brought to an immediate halt.

The much-wanted Obi-Wan standalone film, the Boba Fett movie, the potential Solo sequels, these were films that were talked about but probably won’t ever to come to fruition. But, let’s say, Star Wars stories do become popular again and LucasFilm starts to crank them out once every couple of years or so like they have been doing. Well, I think it would be really fascinating to see a story focusing on Palpatine.

Throwback Friday: The Last Day Before ‘Rogue One’

It’s Friday and that means it’s time for another segment of Throwback Friday. Today I’m sharing with you all the very first post I ever wrote on this blog. I hope you enjoy! 🙂

Darth Vader Returns

One more day! One more day until I finally, for the first time, hear Darth Vader’s breathing in the movie theater, particularly in IMAX. I was brought into the fantastic world of Star Wars with the prequels Episode I, II, and III. I mean I was literally a baby just coming into my first year when I first experienced The Phantom Menace in the movie theater with my parents. Because those prequels didn’t give the backstory of Anakin Skywalker any justice when I finally did see Darth Vader in the classic trilogy of Star Wars he wasn’t as intimidating as he should’ve been.

Finally, with the help of Disney, I think he will truly become the beloved, scary, iconic villain we have all been waiting to enjoy again. I mean who can compete with “No, I am your father.” Definitely one of the best and most jaw-dropping lines in movie history. Of course, Darth Vader isn’t the only reason why I’m excited for Rogue One but he’s definitely a large part of my enthusiasm to see this film.

Can Mace Windu Return to ‘Star Wars’?

Mace Windu is one of the coolest Jedi in Star Wars. He was the leader of the Jedi Order in the days of the Republic and he’s the only Force-wielder to ever have a purple lightsaber. He’s 100% awesome! But he came to a rather tragic ending as Anakin cut his hand off and Palpatine finished him off with a powerful blast of lightning.

He was knocked from the blast across the way to a “certain” death but is that true?

Darth Maul

Darth Maul got sliced in half and tumbled down a chute. But his story wasn’t finished. He was brought back to life in The Clone Wars and had a surprise cameo in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Darth Maul is very much alive and kicking!

So, does this provide the assumption that Mace Windu can also return to a galaxy far, far away? Samuel L. Jackson has said plenty of times since Disney acquired Star Wars that he would love to return to his role as Mace Windu and if Darth Maul could survive his gruesome defeat in The Phantom Menace then surely Mace can return.

Supreme Leader Snoke

Some Star Wars theorists were even beginning to think that Supreme Leader Snoke was Mace Windu come back for revenge against the Skywalkers but that theory came to a sudden end after he was abruptly killed off in The Last Jedi. But even though Snoke is gone Mace can still return and be great in an exciting way.

Wouldn’t that be fantastic? Mace Windu appearing in a Star Wars standalone film or potentially the live-action Star Wars show, The Mandalorian. That would not only be a twist in the franchise but it would be a fantastic surprise for all Star Wars fans.

So, can Mace Windu return to Star Wars? Uh, yeah he can!!! And Kathleen Kennedy should make it happen sooner rather than later.

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

Chewbacca and Han Are the Best!

In this post, I’m not trying to make any profound revelations or statements. I just want to say how much I love Chewbacca and Han Solo because they deserve it.

These two characters have brought smiles to so many faces since their debut in 1977. They’re funny, reckless, but most importantly, they are the best of friends.

Ranking the ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Characters; from Worst to Best

Star Wars: Resistance premiered last week and with two weeks passing and all of the main characters being presented fully I’m going to share with you who I think are the worst and best characters are in this show. Enjoy!

5. Neeku Vozo

Neeku Vozo

Neeku is a likable character, there’s no doubt about that, but his youthful naivety can be a bit…much at times. In the first episode, he kept saying the same thing over and over again until the point of exasperation on my part and the next two episodes didn’t make him any cooler. Neeku is sweet but there’s a line between sweet and a tad bit annoying that the show hasn’t figured out how to navigate just yet.

4. Tam Ryvora

Tam Ryvora

Tam is basically Rose from The Last Jedi novelization. She’s grumpy like Rose was supposed to be and she’s a great mechanic. Up to this point so far in this season, she hasn’t been given a chance to play a huge role in the show. Of course, the show is about Kazuda Xiono but I am interested in learning more about her in the coming episodes.

I Think the ‘Star Wars’ Prequel Trilogy Got Some of its Ideas From ‘The Fifth Element’

Last night I saw, for the first time, The Fifth Element which came out in 1997. I’ve been hearing about this movie for years but it wasn’t until yesterday that I actually sat down and watched the film. As I was watching the movie I was flabbergasted by its strangely creative content and the vision that Luc Besson has concocted for this film. I almost fell asleep at the beginning of the movie because I thought it was kind of boring but I managed to stay up and watch the entire film from beginning to end.

While the overall movie clearly wasn’t the best science-fiction film I’d ever seen I still somewhat enjoyed it. But, as I’d say, about thirty minutes into the movie one of the main characters, a perfect being sent to protect Earth named Leeloo was brought to life. When she found herself in containment she, of course, ran away. It’s at this moment where my mind was blown in utter shock.
