The Trailer For ‘Star Wars Resistance’ Is Here

After the final season of Star Wars: Rebels ended earlier this year people began to wonder what the next Star Wars cartoon would be. Well, the animated series is called Star Wars: Resistance and it will focus on a young pilot named Kazuda Xiono who works as a spy for the Resistance. This cartoon will feature Poe Dameron, voiced by the actual Oscar Isaac, Captain Phasma, voiced by Gwendoline Christie, and everyone’s favorite droid, BB-8. Here’s the trailer.

What I like about this trailer are two things. One; I love the animation. It’s different and yet it’s just as detailed and concise as The Clone Wars cartoons. And the second thing I’m liking about this trailer is that it isn’t really showing anything.

This cartoon is interesting because it’s showing the Resistance shortly before the events of The Force Awakens which is really exciting. That means we’ll see characters we know plus maybe some plot points that’ll be elaborated further on in this animated series.

The cartoon will have an hour long premiere on the Disney channel on October 7. I’m totally going to watch it and share with you my reviews of the first couple of episodes.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. May the Force (and the Resistance) be with you. 🙂

A Live-Action ‘Titans’ Show Is Coming Out Later This Year and Yet I’m Not Excited

Disney is making their own special streaming service which will feature movies, new shows under the Star Wars and Marvel franchises, and plenty of new entertainment to watch and it seems that DC Comics is doing the same thing as they’re bringing out their own DC Universe streaming service later this year which will feature plenty of original content as well. One of the shows that will appear on the streaming service is a live-action Titans show focusing on a group of young heroes led by none other than Robin.

I have to tell you, I’m a huge fan of the Teen Titans. I watched the animated Teen Titans show that lasted from 2003-2006 as a child and I LOVED it. When it finally stopped coming on I was kind of sad to see the Teen Titans go off air. Then Cartoon Network made another Teen Titans cartoon but switched it around into a hilarious comedy that I never miss because it’s so funny. One of the things I’ve always wanted to see, however, was a live-action Teen Titans film or tv show and the DC Universe streaming service is bringing that dream of mine to fruition. But now that I’ve seen a few behind-the-scenes pictures highlighting some of the characters I’m incredibly disappointed in how it looks. Here are the pictures.

The Latest Rumors in Entertainment: Amazon’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ Series May Focus On a Young Aragorn

If you didn’t know, Amazon is preparing to create their own version of Game of Thrones with a Lord of the Rings television series that’s set to premiere sometime next year and rumors for the show have begun to start circling. One of the rumors was that Amazon is trying to get Peter Jackson to helm the new show as either a director or an executive producer which I feel the show will definitely need to feel credible to us viewers who might want to watch it. But now the latest rumor surrounding the show is that it will focus on a young Aragorn…which could and couldn’t be a great idea.

One of the reasons why The Lord of the Rings Trilogy were so great is because the characters were so memorable and engaging and Aragorn was one of those characters. People, including me, loved Aragorn’s journey in the films and the interesting thing about him is he has had quite the adventures because of his long age. In The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies there was a reference towards a young Aragorn who was already a ranger at that time. Legolas was then told by his father, King Thranduil, to seek out the young ranger, for he was someone he wanted his son to know.

This show would be a fabulous way to explore that unknown past of Aragorn and maybe provide some cameos from Legolas, Elrond, Arwen, and Gandalf along the way. We’d get to see new lands, new villains, new obstacles for him to face, and through it all we should definitely feel the presence of Sauron lingering in the background. That could be quite awesome if written correctly.

What Has Happened To ‘Survivor’?

I didn’t really start watching Survivor until a few years ago and the first season I saw was Season 19 which was the season introducing the iconic Survivor player, Russel Hantz. Russel Hantz was diabolical, crafty, mean, smart, brilliant, a hustler, he was everything that Survivor was about and more. In fact, he was the pioneer of Survivor players going to search for idols because before him people didn’t search for hidden immunity idols, they just ran into them by accident. It was one of the best things I’ve ever seen in reality television and I’ve been hooked on Survivor since.

After that season I went straight to Season 20: Heroes vs. Villains and I was even more hooked as I watched 20 of the greatest Survivor players battle it out through thirty-nine days.

It was such great entertainment and it was one of the greatest discoveries of my young life. After that I proceeded to binge-watch all of the seasons and was absolutely thrilled at how incredibly fascinating nearly all of them were. When you have seasons with players like Coach, the invincible Ozzy, the legendary Russel Hantz, the CIA agent, Phillip, Boston Rob, the flirtatious but extremely smart and strong Parvati, the ultimate Survivor nerd, John Cochran, etc. you can’t help but absolutely love the show. The last two and a half years or so, of Survivor has been terribly lackluster lately.

My Experience Binge-Watching ‘The Clone Wars’

When The Clone Wars debuted on Cartoon Network back in 2008 I missed nearly every episode of its long six seasons except for maybe four of them and I was bummed about that. I am a huge Star Wars fan (as you may know) and so if there’s anything to do with Star Wars I want to know about it. Well, it’s been ten years since the television show debuted and after discovering, with great excitement, that they had all six seasons on Netflix I decided to binge-watch it.

Oh. My. Goodness. This show is so ridiculously entertaining that I’m still a little dumbfounded that it was that good. The Clone Wars is a cartoon made for children and yet the creators and writers didn’t treat it that way. The rating for the show was PG and for good reason. It is hands down the most violent children’s cartoon I have ever seen. And the scenarios were never childish. Every episode was like watching a 23 minute Star Wars movie full of action and suspense. I was utterly riveted.

And not only was the show really enjoyable but it introduced so many incredibly strong female characters.

Ahsoka Tano

There was Ahsoka Tano, Anakin’s padawan, sidekick, and trusted friend. It was amazing watching her turn from this childish Jedi padawan who made rash decisions based off of emotion into a full-fledged Jedi Knight who was wise, benevolent, and powerful. Her arc throughout her five seasons was a blast to watch and the way her story ended was so sad.

It was the first time I had seen a Jedi willingly walk away from the Jedi Order and it was aheartbreaking moment watching her say goodbye to Anakin, her master and best friend. They had been through so much together but a simple misunderstanding had destroyed their friendship and mutual trust in each other.

It makes her story that much more interesting because due to her leaving the Jedi Order she wasn’t victim to Order 66 and I know she was part of the Star Wars: Rebels show but what did she do between that time? I think a Star Wars Story should fill in that gap because now I’m super interested and I’m sure there other people who feel the exact same way.

Asajj Ventress

Asajj Ventress was such a fascinating character. She was an assassin trained by Count Dooku in the Dark Side of the Force but was cast out due to the infamous Sith rule of two. She wasn’t a very complex character but she was cool all the same, especially with the shortage of female villains in Star Wars. I wish there were more female baddies in this franchise but at least she’s part of the meager list.

The Finale for ‘Survivor’: Season 35 Was Downright Epic

Survivor is an incredible show, that’s why it’s been around for seventeen years. It is a real life social experiment that brings out people’s true characters, good or bad, and ends with someone winning a million dollars. What’s better than that? This Survivor season had its up and downs but this finale had jaw-dropping moments after jaw-dropping moments and ended up becoming one of the best finales I have ever seen from this show. So, I’m going to talk about all of the things that I enjoyed the most and I hope you enjoy.

The First Hour

When the two-hour finale started it began with an instant bang as soon as Ben found yet another immunity idol. I was stunned.

How was this happening? How could Ben find another idol? Was he that good or was fate seriously on his side? I guess it was the latter. I gave him props. That took some hard work finding those idols, especially when you’re running on fumes and instead of sleeping you’re searching in the dark for an idol. I was seriously impressed.

So, Chrissy won the immunity challenge for a third time, which was also amazing and so because they just knew Ben was going home they decided to “trick” Ben into thinking they already had the idol. I was laughing so hard. I just couldn’t wait to see the look on their faces when he whipped out his real idol. That tribal council will go down as the greatest tribal council in Survivor history to me because what Ben did was priceless. When he brought out the “BenBomb” and then went, “La la la” I laughed so hard. That was the greatest surprise I had ever seen. Devon was the only one who knew something was fishy and good thing too because he would’ve been the BenBomb’s unfortunate victim. I applauded Ben for his fantastic move. It will go down as one of Survivor’s classic occurences because that tribal council was spectacular. And then Jeff said there was going to be a secret advantage. What was that going to be? It ended up being quite a doozy but I’ll get to that in a bit.

Season 35 of ‘Survivor’ Is Finally Getting Interesting

While this isn’t one of the worst seasons of Survivor it has been, up to this point, a little lackluster. There haven’t been any jaw-dropping blindsides and that’s always a bummer when it comes to Survivor. The past two weeks’ episodes have become a little more exciting and last night led to a rather shocking development. Lauren was betrayed by Ben last week and ended up getting kicked off. And now this week Ashley ended up falling on the sword. I was shocked.

For the past few weeks it seemed that Devan and Ashley had become a core alliance and then he helped kick her off without barely any remorse. That was a surprise. I also can’t believe Ben found another idol. He basically had one foot out of the game of Survivor but he refused to go home and he ended up finding another immunity idol! He deserves to win this season because no other player has worked as hard as him up to this point. Next week is the finale and I’m going to predict who will end up in the final three.

We all know everyone is gunning for Ben but with his idol he’s secured himself a top four spot. So who is going to be his next unfortunate victim? I know it would be easy to get rid of Mike but I think these players are, frankly, more strategic than that. I have a feeling that the next person to get kicked off is going to be Devan. He thinks he’s got the game in the bag but he’s not realizing the huge target he’s putting on his back by taking the leadership role. If Chrissy and Ryan start figuring out that he has a real chance at beating them for the million dollars they’re going to find a way to get rid of him in the blink of an eye.

Now the three I’m hoping get to the final tribal council are Ryan, Chrissy, and Devan. Throughout this season they have been the strategic forces behind most of the huge decisions and blindsides that have happened in this season. If they had to face each other in the final tribal council they each would have a worthy case on why they should win the game of Survivor. Now, if it was me personally, I would give my vote to Devan because while he has stabbed a few people in the back he has managed to retain a positive countenance throughout the entire season. I love that and that’s why I would love it if he won. Now, if Ben gets to the final three he’s going to undoubtedly win in a landslide which would be so uneventful. I would definitely be very happy for him though because he truly would be a survivor after all of the eliminations he’s managed to dodge.

Well, that’s my overview of this week’s episode of Survivor. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.
