Star Wars is a wonderful franchise that has captured the hearts of millions of fans around the world and part of the reason why is because of the characters. Without those incredible heroes like Luke and Rey or the memorable villains, Darth Vader and Kylo Ren, these movies wouldn’t be half as entertaining as they are now.
Throughout the years there have been incredible character duos in Star Wars that have made the movies so much more fun to watch and today they are part of my weekly segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Here are all of the Star Wars duos (this is solely based on the movies.)
Finn and Rey
Finn and Rey have had quite the journey through the trilogy so far. In fact, their individual journeys ended up leading them apart for the majority of The Last Jedi. But when they are together it’s like a match made in heaven.
Before we were reacquainted with Han Solo and Chewbacca in The Force Awakens we were following the stories of youngsters Finn and Rey and they were so immediately lovable I didn’t even miss the Star Wars veterans. Their friendship is part of the reason why I love The Force Awakens so much and I can’t wait to see them have more time together in Episode IX.

Episode IX is officially under way and to celebrate yesterday’s first day of filming for the movie J.J Abrams shared a vague behind-the-scenes photo commemorating the beginning of this incredible journey that we are about to partake on. Here’s the tweet.

Solo, while it did a great job at feeling like a solo (no pun intended) movie in itself with no need for a sequel there were several implications that a sequel could easily happen but after its surprisingly sluggish box-office run the fate of the standalone Star Wars films are truly up in the air, leastwise a Solo 2. So, should Star Wars still make plans for a sequel or should they let the backstory of the iconic Han Solo be? Well I, for one, would love to see a sequel for this latest standalone film for several reasons.
MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!
1. Jabba the Hutt
In the final sequence of Solo Tobias Beckett says to Han before “leaving” that there’s a big shot gangster he’s going to try to work for on Tatooine. Anyone who knows anything about Star Wars knows that Jabba the Hutt’s territory is Tatooine. And then at the very end of the movie after Han and Chewbacca win the Falcon from Lando Calrissian they head into hyperspace going to you-know-where, Tatooine, to meet this particular gangster Beckett was talking about.
Not only would a sequel delve deeper into the relationship between Han and boss, Jabba, but it could also give us an in-depth look into Jabba’s criminal world which means there will be plenty of new characters to explore. We could get Boba Fett as a major character or potentially Sana Starros, a character that was part of Han’s life in the Legends canon and has recently been brought back into the new canon through the novel, Last Shot. Or we could see plenty of new bounty hunters and smugglers ready to welcome Han into Jabba’s gang of scoundrels or cause him plenty of trouble. Either way sounds awesome.

Chewbacca has been a beloved character since he debuted in A New Hope and now over four decades later Star Wars fans’ love for the fabulous Wookie hasn’t diminished in the slightest. If anything, our adoration of the character has increased as more and more movies have arrived showcasing his awesomeness. In fact, The Last Jedi helped reveal to us that maybe it wasn’t just Han Solo who was the only great pilot residing in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon as we got to see his piloting skills taken to the test in the underground caverns of Crait and he passed with flying colors. He took that ship and flew through that cavern in such a fantastic way that I’m kind of convinced he may be the better pilot between the two buddies. Of course, Solo will give the charming scoundrel plenty of times to prove that he really is worthy of the title, “Greatest Pilot in the Galaxy.” But Chewbacca is undoubtedly another one of the greatest pilots in the galaxy and with this new Star Wars movie his awesomeness will be explored even more and I couldn’t be more excited.
Chewbacca has always been a prominent character but he’s also always been low on the list of importance compared to the other characters like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia, and now Rey. He’s also always been viewed as a sidekick and I’m glad that we’re finally going to see Chewie in a different light in Solo. This is the stage in his life where he befriends Han and to think that he didn’t like the rascally smuggler at first sounds so exciting. I’ve never seen Chewbacca and Han Solo on less-than-friendly terms and that’s going to be one of the interactions I’m most interested in seeing in the movie.
I’m also just super excited to see Chewbacca. He is such an awesome character and to see him finally get a chance at a major role in this film is simply exhilarating to think about. He’s a major part of the reason why I’m thrilled to see this movie and I hope it’ll give us an even greater insight to his character in the films that he has already graced.
I hope this movie has gotten you just as excited about Chewbacca as me and I thank you for reading. Have a great day and May the Force be with you.
The marketing for Solo: A Star Wars Story has officially begun to ramp up and a few days ago they brought out a new poster for the film which actually is the greatest poster they’ve made so far. Here it is.
So this is the international poster for the movie and I love the Rogue One vibe it’s giving as it’s stacking all of the characters in a hierarchy type of fashion and it’s kind of really cool. I also like the sunrise color scheme. It hints that the dawn of a new big shot in town is coming and that will obviously be Han Solo. Awesome! I also love seeing all of the characters as well. It’s obvious that the four most important characters will be Han, Qi’Ra, Chewbacca, and Lando, which is super exciting. I have to admit, this poster is getting me a little pumped for this movie.
I’ve also just recently gotten the main gist of the movie which is this; Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson) is putting together a sort of Avengers of smugglers for a big-shot gangster, Dryden Vos (Paul Bettany) to perform a heist job that’ll obviously pay them a lot of money. That sounds ridiculously awesome because there’s never been a story like that in Star Wars before. Maybe this movie is going to be really good after all because that sounds like an awesome plot. And I’m sure this movie will be full of shocking-but-not-that-shocking betrayals that’ll reveal how Han truly became his namesake; Han Solo.
All in all, I’m actually starting to get excited for this movie. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.
Star Wars is packed full of incredible characters throughout all of its nine films and while most of the characters usually head on their own path some of these lovable individuals end up becoming remarkable teams that have become iconic in film history. And so today I’m going to talk about the duos in Star Wars that have always brought a smile to my face and made the movies that much better. Enjoy!
Finn and Rose
The latest installment in this nine film-and-counting franchise, The Last Jedi, brought a new character to the Star Wars universe, the adorable Rose Tico, and placed her alongside the lovable Finn throughout the entire movie, immediately making them one of the greatest and cutest duos in Star Wars so far.
One of my favorite scenes in The Last Jedi was when Rose first meets Finn.
Not only is it one of the funniest scenes in the movie but we get to see how Finn has really become the “big deal” that he lied and said he was in The Force Awakens due to Rose gushing over him when she first meets him. She soon realizes that Finn was actually trying to desert and that’s when we get to see that her character isn’t one to be trifled with which I love. As she’s taking the stunned Finn to her superiors it immediately establishes the chemistry between the two characters as they realize what they must do at the same time to fix the hyperspace tracking situation. From thereon they partake in a daring mission that strengthens their friendship and highlights how great of a team they really are. And thanks to Rian Johnson not killing Rose after she saved Finn from committing suicide to save the Resistance I’m sure the two will have many more exciting adventures together and I can’t wait to see them.

Yes, it is the time and I can’t believe it. The day has finally come where it’s literally only two hands worth away from The Last Jedi coming out. I am stunned. It feels like yesterday when I wrote a post celebrating the four month mark. Now it’s just ten days! Wow. So, to celebrate the beginning of this glorious countdown, I am going to talk about a different teaser and character every day until December 15. Enjoy!
This tv spot is not only one of the best so far but it’s great because it’s only ten days until I’ll be able to see this film in all of its wonderful glory and I am beyond excited. This tv spot is also very good because the music is unlike anything I’ve ever heard when it comes to Star Wars. It’s also kind of creepy whatever’s happening to Rey in this teaser. Who’s calling Rey? Is it Snoke, is it Kylo Ren, or is it something else entirely? I can’t wait to find out.
