‘Ms. Marvel’ Is a Reminder of the Beauty of Diversity

Yesterday I watched the third episode of Ms. Marvel and among its intriguing revelations and fun moments, there was something that stood out: its beautiful representation of the Pakistani culture.

As a young African-American woman, I know very little about this lovely culture. American media has painted Muslims in an overwhelmingly one-sided way. In nearly every movie or television show, I have ever watched Muslims are either terrorists or doting sidekicks to a white protagonist. To see this show every week has left me happier and happier.

‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Was Amazing!

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.

That Episode of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Was AMAZING!

One word: aaaahhhhh! This episode was mind-blowing from the start! Action-packed, check. Jaw-dropping, check. But most importantly, the emotional side of this episode and the stakes that came with it was incredible.

I don’t have much else to say as of right now because I’m still processing but I will say this. Six episodes doesn’t feel like enough time back with Kenobi. I’m really hoping for a second season.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Was Fun

I love this show. It’s a simple fact that I can’t express enough. It’s so fun to watch every week, it reminds me why Obi-Wan Kenobi was my favorite character for so many years, and it just feels like classic Star Wars. It’s also nice having lightsabers back, if I’m being honest.

I absolutely can’t wait to see what happens next week and yes, we need a second season.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ and the Return of…HIM

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.

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