Counting Down my 20 Favorite Trailers: #17-‘The Last Jedi’

The Force Awakens was an amazing movie so its sequel was awaited with breathtaking anticipation. When this trailer came out I remember I would sit around and, having memorized it, would play it in my head. Check it out.

I was ecstatic, over the moon, beside myself, all of the feelings one can have that are synonymous with sheer joy is how I felt after watching this teaser. Nowadays, it doesn’t carry the same magic which is why I have it so low on my list but it still invokes a smile on my face.

Lucky #16 is coming up next. (Wow, so far, all of these trailers have been Disney-related. Lol.)

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

Throwback Friday: Daisy Ridley: From Rey to Batgirl?

Five years ago the relatively unknown Daisy Ridley rose to Hollywood prominence after she starred in the Star Wars revival, The Force Awakens, as the lead protagonist, Rey. Now she has become a household name, inspiring little girls and women alike in her role as the always-lovable, incredibly heroic Rey.

But her role as the iconic heroine is coming to an end and it’s time for our wonderful Ms. Ridley to move on. 😢

It seems that Warner Bros., however, may have something else in mind. They want to take the face of one of the greatest movie franchises and apply it to their own growing franchise with Daisy Ridley rumored to play the role of Batgirl. Yes, you heard correctly. Batgirl.

Now mind you, this is not Batwoman who is currently being played by Ruby Rose in the highly-anticipated series, Batwoman, on CW. If you’re wondering what the difference between Batwoman and Batgirl is, allow me to put your confusion at ease. Continue reading Throwback Friday: Daisy Ridley: From Rey to Batgirl?

Daisy Ridley/Rey and John Boyega/Finn: The Faces of the New Jedi Order

I can’t believe it. It happened! After the events of The Rise of Skywalker, it seems very apparent that Rey and Finn will most likely herald in a new era of Jedi and I am beyond excited.

Rey's Quarterstaff

They started this incredible journey together, both as orphans trying to make their way in the galaxy. They became best friends, they went through such incredible self-exploration that drove them apart and brought them back together again, and then, at the end of their journies, they would be brought together again in eternal bondage.

Rey would be a Jedi Knight who had found her identity. Finn would discover that he had the Force and embrace its power in a subtle but important way.

When The Rise of Skywalker came to an end, they would both survive the outcome of the war, meaning we could very well see them as the leaders of the Jedi Order in the near future. Continue reading Daisy Ridley/Rey and John Boyega/Finn: The Faces of the New Jedi Order

Rey’s Lineage Revealed: Why Am I Still Unsatisfied?

Since The Force Awakens, there’s been one searing question that fans of the new trilogy couldn’t help clamoring for; who are Rey’s parents? At the end of The Force Awakens, the two most popular theories saw Rey as Luke’s daughter or as a Solo. Those theories were aggressively debunked as Rian Johnson changed gears and told all of us that Rey was the daughter of “nobodies” who had abandoned her for drinking money. But I knew this was a cruel ploy Kylo used to try to get her to join him. I even wrote a post about it a couple of years ago.

I Have The Proof That Kylo Ren Didn’t Tell the Full Truth About Rey’s Parents

I was saying it all throughout last year. Rey was a Palpatine. There was nothing that could convince me otherwise. So when I watched The Rise of Skywalker and Kylo told her, in a specifically momentous point of the movie, that she was Rey Palpatine, I wasn’t surprised, nor was I that happy either.


The concept of Rey’s connection to Palpatine was a brilliant idea in theory if done correctly, but the way J.J Abrams handled the reveal and the following storyline surrounding this tale of lineage felt a bit…if I’m being honest, corny.
