The Cast of ‘The Mandalorian’ Has Been Released

As you may already know Disney is making a streaming service complete with exclusive content and one of its earliest gifts to all us Star Wars fans is a live-action Star Wars series called The Mandalorian. Since the news of the show was released a few months ago I have been so excited about this series and now the official cast for the show has been announced. So, here are the actors that will help bring The Mandalorian to life.

Pedro Pascal

As you may have seen about a month ago I wrote a post highlighting my excitement that Narcos actor Pedro Pascal was set to play the lead in The Mandalorian. Of course, it was all but confirmed but now that LucasFilm has announced the cast it’s official. He will be the man beneath the Mandalorian mask.

Throwback Friday: My Review of ‘The Last Jedi’ Novel

This has become quite the eventful Friday. The highly anticipated trailer for Avengers: Endgame just dropped. I’m still trying process the fact that I’ve seen actual, legitimate footage from Avengers: Endgame which is SO awesome. I’m also trying to calm down after seeing Ronin who looked so ridiculously cool that I’m still hyperventilating. But, I must stick to the normalcy of the week and share with you all a Throwback Friday post.

This week I’m revisiting my review of The Last Jedi novel which is such an amazing book. I hope you enjoy. 🙂

Finn and Rose

really loved the dynamic between Finn and Rose in the novel. In the movie, it doesn’t ever delve deep into the details of their evolving relationship but after reading the book I have a completely different view on not only their companionship in the film but on Rose as a character as well. For a great deal of the novel, we see her annoyance with Finn. She didn’t like his constant harping on Rey and she was peeved by his naivety. As much as he got on nerves, however, she gradually began to realize how good a man he really was. It was almost, to her, strange to see a man who was once a stormtrooper have such an innocence about him and his kind heart is what led to her liking him…a lot.

By the time she saved him from sacrificing himself on the salt plains of Crait you realize just how much she actually loves him and it’s really sweet. I already liked Rose before but now I really like her thanks to the novel.

It’s Official: Scarlet Witch and Vision Are Getting Their Own Series

Disney has announced a few exciting new live-action series for the company’s streaming service in the past month and it seems like the good news isn’t coming to an end, as it has been officially announced that there will be a series focusing on yours truly, Scarlet Witch and Vision. This sounds so exciting for so many different reasons.

First off, they’re both very unique and powerful but they’ve never been given the chance to enjoy the spotlight. By the time they got any recognition with Infinity War, they were both dead.

Secondly, the story could easily focus on these two characters in a prequel sort of fashion as the series follows their story together in the years between Civil War and Infinity War. That could be very interesting for so many reasons and it can show us the full evolution of Vision and Scarlet Witch’s compelling romance.

Of course, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany may not actually reprise their roles for the series (I’m hoping they do) but whatever the case, I can’t wait to watch this film. Wow, I think Disney+ is going to be a very fun streaming service to have.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have an absolutely spectacular day.

Nick Nolte Joins ‘The Mandalorian’

Recent news surrounding the casting of The Mandalorian has excited Star Wars fans as we learned the news that Narcos actor, Pedro Pascal would play the lead of the live-action series, Deadpool actress/WWE fighter Gina Carano also was revealed to play a lead in the show, and now it’s been announced that 3-time Oscar-nominated actor, Nick Nolte is also set to join the series.

I haven’t seen any of his movies but I’m sure he will be a great addition to the show. He also has a rugged look which will perfectly match the undoubtedly gritty style of the series.

This is great news and my excitement for this series is growing! 🙂

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

Throwback Friday: My Ten Favorite Movie Heroines

Another week has passed and today’s topic for Throwback Friday is a fun one for me, for it’s focused on an old post I wrote about my ten favorite movie heroines. And with more incredible heroines like Captain Marvel appearing in the near future, there isn’t a shortage of awesome female movie characters in the future. So, on that note, I hope you enjoy this week’s Throwback Friday! 🙂

I love movies. I love seeing stories play out onscreen, I love watching actors portray different characters that I will either love or despise, I love action films, but most importantly, I love a movie with an off-the-chain heroine. There are hundreds of great films with male heroes but when a woman can come into the fold and kick butt that’s when a movie, for me, becomes really awesome and lately that’s become a regular occurrence.

Last year Wonder Woman finally got her own blockbuster film after being around for decades and there have been a bunch of critically acclaimed indie films and television shows led by women in the past year. Three of the last four Star Wars films have been led by women (and each film has made over a billion dollars), an idea that at one time would seem preposterous to the Hollywood elite. And last year’s highest grossing films were all female-led, Beauty and the BeastWonder Woman, and The Last Jedi.

So, because women are clearly awesome, I’m going to share with you the ten movie heroines that I have come to love the most, at least, so far.

10. Dorothy

The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movies of all time. I remember seeing this film as a child and it was one of the most magical films I have ever seen still to this day. To think that this movie was made in 1939! is beyond incredible and in the center of this epic tale is Dorothy.

Dorothy is a special character. She has those ruby slippers, she sings like an angel, she has the cutest dog ever, Toto, and she’s so sweet.  She faces flying monkeys, an evil witch, and many other obstacles but at the end of it all she survives the adventure and helps save the Land of Oz while never refraining from being herself. If you really think about it, Dorothy is very brave. To face all of that strange stuff; a talking scarecrow, a talking lion, a tin man, munchkins, witches, etc. without utterly freaking out is very impressive.

Without Dorothy, The Wizard of Oz would not be the same magical movie that it has been for almost a century and that’s why she is one of my favorite heroines.

Which Characters Should Appear in Cassian’s Live-Action Series?

When it was announced that there was going to be a live-action series on Disney+ focusing on fan-favorite Cassian Andor I couldn’t believe it. I was and still am so excited about this news. Cassian is my favorite Rogue One character and with this series, he can finally get the backstory that he so absolutely deserves. But there’s another exciting element to this news and that is the idea that other awesome characters can make appearances in this series. Characters we all know and love and haven’t been given enough time to shine. So, on that note, here’s a list of characters that I think could make some surprise appearances on the show.

Mon Mothma

Mon Mothma has played an important leadership role in the Rebellion for many years and as obvious from the movie she has a relationship with Cassian as his superior. I think it is inevitable to see her make an appearance or two in the series.

Darth Vader

While it’s pretty likely that Cassian and Darth Vader will most likely never cross paths there is always a slight possibility that it could potentially. Maybe on one of Cassian’s spy missions, he’ll see Vader from afar or just barely manage to avoid him. That could be very entertaining.

More News Involving ‘The Mandalorian’ Has Arrived!

Yesterday it was reported that Narcos actor Pedro Pascal was potentially joining The Mandalorian for the lead role which was undoubtedly an exciting prospect but now more casting news has arrived.

It seems that Deadpool actress, Gina Carano, is set to join Pedro Pascal in a lead role in the upcoming live-action series. Of course, this hasn’t been officially announced by Star Wars yet but with The Hollywood Reporter breaking the news it definitely seems legitimate.

Oh, I’m getting more excited for this show by the second. What do you think of this news? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

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