Well, The Book of Boba Fett is over. I can honestly say I’m relieved. The show had its moments of brilliance (mainly when it was The Mandalorian 2.5) but ultimately, as a whole, the show was a bit ridiculous. There was too much going on, too many flashbacks, and not enough awesome Boba-ness. (Yes, they Disney-fied Boba Fett.)
Forget that though. Let’s talk about Luke Skywalker and his track record of being a TERRIBLE Jedi Master.
In The Last Jedi we see Luke as this grumpy, hopeless old man who wants nothing to do with the Jedi. Even when his sister begs for his help he goes about his business on Ahch-To with a scowl on his face, refusing to teach Rey the ways of the Jedi.
When he finally does decide to teach her the ways of the Force it’s with only one goal in mind; to show her why the Jedi are so awful. He has a point which only reaches a catalyst after his nephew Ben falls to the dark and destroys his Jedi Academy. He ends up infuriating Rey so badly that she found herself willing to trust Kylo Ren more than the very man who once saved the galaxy from the Empire and Palpatine. Ouch.
His nephew Ben turned to the dark because apparently Luke was being a terrible mentor and Snoke was able to manipulate him. Snoke, a twisted being who seems like the last person you should trust seemed more trustworthy than Ben’s uncle, Luke Skywalker.
I’ve been wanting to do a post highlighting Kanan Jarrus and why I think he’s the perfect Jedi but then I watched The Clone Wars the other day and I realized that he and Ahsoka are both fine examples of the perfect Jedi. And it is two distinct scenes that I think of to prove this point.
SPOILERS FOR The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels AHEAD!
It’s Fan Art Wednesday and I’m really excited for this week to show you some really great art. However, this week will focus on fan art featuring the Sequel Trilogy’s two most important characters: Rey and Kylo Ren. It is a fascinating set of pictures featuring Rey and Kylo’s alter egos in equally LOVELY ways and I’m so excited to share them with you. So, with no further delay, here they are.
My sister has been doing this collaborative thing on Instagram where she takes people’s suggestions for what they want to see her draw and, well, brings those suggestions to life. One person had drawn a comic called Rebirth of the Balance featuring Rey going to the World Between Worlds and my sister took that concept to the next level. Here they are, side by side.
A few years ago, I knew nothing about fan art…or fan fiction. When my sister discovered this holy grail of imaginative wonder we had to dabble into its depths. My sister and I have collaborated several times over the years and I am constantly sharing her artwork because, well, it’s amazing.
So, I have introduced a new series to my site and that is Fan Art Wednesday. Enjoy!
1. The Rise of Solo
After The Rise of Skywalker, my sister decided to bring detail to one of the pivotal scenes in the movie. Here she depicts the moment Leia taking her son into the Force. The picture went viral a little over a month ago, grabbing the attention of hundreds of thousands of people around the world with this absolute masterpiece.
It was beautiful then and it’s still awe-inspiring to look at.
Baby Yoda and The Mandalorian Find Ahsoka Tano
The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda have become a worldwide phenomenon while Ahsoka Tano has taken the world by storm with her incredible storyline that has transcended trilogies. My sister illustrates a moment that brings the three fan favorites together on a dazzling landscape that only manages to inspire in the viewer.
Every time I see this picture it makes me smile. So of course, I had to share it.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.
