That finale was actually incredible. For so long these Disney+ series have botched the finale but thankfully Obi-Wan Kenobi stuck the landing big time.
I smiled, I gasped, I cried, I cheered, and when the credits began to roll I clapped. This series was even better than I’d imagined it would be. It was a different story than I expected, it created a bridge to the Original Trilogy while also managing to be fresh and new. And yes, it definitely left room for a second season.
And that ending?! Wow, wow, wow, wow.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
When Ewan McGregor said he was reprising his role of Obi-Wan Kenobi we, the fans, went nuts with excitement. He was back! After years of speculation, he was finally back. And then we got a second surprise. Hayden Christensen would be back too as the legendary Darth Vader for another epic showdown. The shock was palpable, the excitement was electric, and all in all, I absolutely couldn’t wait to see this show.
Now that it’s here, it’s far better than I could’ve imagined. Parts I and II were already special and utterly transfixing but Part III was undoubtedly some of the best Star Wars I’ve ever had the fortune of witnessing. From the first second to the last the episode reveals that is not going to be a boring episode. In fact, it established instantly that the episode would, on many occasions, be designed to emotionally wreck Star Wars fans. And that’s what it did.
Obi-Wan’s time with Leia has been spectacular and emotionally rewarding. The line where she asks him if he’s her real father gets me choked up every time. But it’s the episode’s last ten-fifteen minutes that will stand out as some of the tensest, most incredible minutes in Star Wars history. And that, of course, involved the return of the legend, Darth Vader.
Oh my goodness, it’s here everyone. The trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi has finally arrived. Check it out.
And that’s exactly the type of trailer I expected; something very simple but powerful.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is back! And he’s got a lot of enemies coming his way. Seeing the Grand Inquisitor and the Fifth Brother is already exciting enough as it is, but we also have a newcomer, Inquisitor Reva, who looks absolutely fantastic!!!
The opening music is beautiful and totally magical but once you add in Duel of the Fates it’s a foregone conclusion that yes, the trailer is going to be epic.
I think, once again, what surprises me the most about these shows is how good they look. I mean, this looks like a movie and I absolutely can’t wait to see what Star Wars has in store for us come May 25.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a magical day. May the Force be with you, always.
Avengers: Infinity War came out a few months ago and blew minds around the world, culminating a little over $2 billion dollars in its box-office run. Now it’s just recently come out on Digital and I have been enjoying it thoroughly! But in my second to latest viewing I realized something kind of amazing.
Disney owns two of the most popular franchises right now, Marvel and Star Wars, and a lot can be compared between the two but one thing that usually can’t be compared are the movies’ narrative compositions. Well, I have discovered that Avengers: Infinity War and A New Hope have nearly identical beginnings and that’s what I’m excited to share it with you. Enjoy!
Both Movies Start Showing a Ship Under Attack By a Larger Ship
In Avengers: Infinity War the first thing we see after the iconic Marvel logo is Thor’s Asgardian ship under attack by Thanos’s massive craft.
And in A New Hope we see Princess Leia’s ship, the Tantative IV, being chased and eventually caught by an Imperial Star Destroyer.
I’ve just recently gotten into reading Star Wars comics and it’s kind of amazing. I got four comics from my local library and I’ve read two so far: Star Wars: Vader-Dark Visions and Star Wars Vol. 9: Hope Dies. Both left me kind of shook.
Dark Visions is Vader at his finest as we see a few different stories told from another person’s point of view about the dark-clad warrior of the Force in the same writing style as The Legends of Luke Skywalker. But, this being Vader and all, the stories were either gruesome, creepy, or both.
I personally loved flipping through the comic’s pages dazzled by the art and the darkness that seemed to emanate from every panel. It was so good!
So I decided to watch the last three episodes of The Clone Wars last night and I think I kind of forgot just how epic and fantastic the end of the seventh season truly is.
Revenge of the Sith is pretty much my favorite Star Wars movie because it is the darkest Star Wars movie. The tragedy of the Jedi and their instant fall as Emperor Palpatine has his diabolical plan realized is unlike any other event in Star Wars. It affects all Jedi and turns the story of Star Wars into something very serious and interesting, leading into the aftermath which sees the likes of Kanan, Ezra, Cal Kestis, Ahsoka, and Luke Skywalker having to navigate their way through a galaxy whose entire goal is to see them destroyed.
The Clone Wars is regarded as one of the best things to ever happen to Star Wars because it doesn’t take itself lightly. There is sadness weaved throughout the series and the last three episodes of The Clone Wars completely embrace the darkness of Revenge of the Sith in both tone and circumstance in a way that is astounding.
It’s a piece of the puzzle that I didn’t know I needed but now I can’t imagine not knowing about Ahsoka/Rex and how they both dealt with the events of Order 66.
It’s sad, it’s appropriately dark, and it actually makes Revenge of the Sith better.
