It’s getting closer and closer until the day The Last Jedi finally comes out and we can get all our answers, well, answered but a new spread of photos from Entertainment Weekly for the highly-anticipated film have come out to help satiate our thirsts until that time. Enjoy and be warned…one of these pictures might be a HUGE SPOILER so I advise you to proceed with care.
This the first of four Entertainment Weekly covers and this happened to be the one I got today in the mail. And I’m so glad too. This is frankly my favorite of the four covers, for it implies so many things. It’s also just kind of wild seeing Kylo Ren and Rey on a magazine cover not facing against each other but instead standing as if together. And the sentence, Could REY Turn To The Dark Side? is so powerful and telling. Rey’s journey in The Last Jedi is, in the words of the wise Luke, “Not going to go the way we think.”
From lightsabers to crossbows to sniper rifles and handheld blasters Star Wars has a vast array of different weapons throughout the films. So I’m here to write about my ten favorite weapons in Star Wars and I hope you enjoy.
One thing I loved from the prequels were the weapons General Grievous’s Magnaguards used. I’m a fan of staves and so these electrostaves were incredible to me, especially with the fact that they were able to repel attacks from a weapon as powerful as a lightsaber. These are definitely some of my favorite weapons in Star Wars.
Ever since the Star Wars: The Visual Encyclopedia came out earlier this year I have been so excited to finally own it. And now that I have it I can honestly say that is one of the coolest books I have ever owned. This encyclopedia is absolutely packed with content. I mean filled to the rim, from the front to the back.
There is a huge section on the planets in the universe.
And I ended up finding out some incredible facts. Like the planet Bespin, for example. Ever since I first saw the Cloud City and all of those beautiful clouds I used to imagine an entire world beneath the city. I had no idea that the planet entirely consisted of gas. That is mind-blowing and now I see Bespin in a whole different light.
I love Star Wars for so many reasons. I love the stories, I love the action, I love the environment, and I absolutely love the characters. And of course, each character has their own special style and part of that style is their hair. So, on that note, here are my six favorite Star Wars hairstyles.
6. Qui-Gon Jin
Qui-Gon is cool for so many different reasons and one of those reasons is his impeccable hairstyle. First of all, it’s totally a look that I would imagine a Jedi Master having. It’s simple yet elegant in a way, it has this kind of Samurai warrior vibe which is totally sensible considering that George Lucas’s inspiration for the Jedi was from Samurai, and it perfectly defines Qui-Gon. He’s also the only character in Star Wars, so far, with a hairstyle like this. Now I think Rey is going to go a little Qui-Gon on everyone with her new look but that’s a whole other topic.
However, at the moment Qui-Gon Jin has the coolest hairstyle as a Jedi so far.
I love Star Wars for so many reasons and one of those reasons is the lightsaber duels. When I was a little girl I remember watching Revenge of the Sith and The Phantom Menace and then taking my Star Wars toys and remaking those lightsaber battles in my own little way. It was so much fun to not only watch but to also reenact. And then I got a little older and I finally saw the original trilogy and those lightsaber battles were less flashy but all the more incredible. That’s why when Rogue One was coming out I was a little worried, I’m not gonna lie.
There had never been, up to that point, a Star Wars movie that didn’t have at least one Jedi or Sith and at least one lightsaber duel. Now, of course, Darth Vader did cause some serious carnage at the end of the film with a lightsaber but that doesn’t count. His victims were helpless, they had absolutely no way to defend themselves. This post is about actual duels between two individuals with lightsabers. I’ll also only be ranking the duels in the movies. So on that note, let me start.
So I have just recently finished reading Star Wars: Bloodline which was so good by the way. This book is set, I think, six years before The Force Awakens and is focused solely on Leia and what she was doing at that time. Not only was it fun reading about that time period and all of its political struggles and so forth in the galaxy but it also gave me one of the largest hints about Rey that I’ve gotten in the last twenty months and I’m so excited to share it with you.
The Last Jedi is drawing closer by the second and that means my skepticism about the movie is expectedly heightening. Now, I have no doubt The Last Jedi is going to be enjoyable but it does have to broach some topics or include some moments that’ll make the movie worth this long wait. Here are those things.
1. Luke and Leia’s Reunion
Luke and Leia haven’t seen each other for a very, very long time. I think not only would be a great moment, story-wise but to see Luke and Leia together again after all of these years would not only be beautiful but would also probably be one of my favorite moments of the movie. I’m pretty sure it would be very emotional too. Woo, I can just imagine my tears flowing already.
The cool thing is in the special Vanity Fair issue that came out earlier this year it had a picture of Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill speaking with Kathleen Kennedy. That could only mean that they did happen to film some scenes together and that means there will be a reunion. I’m really hoping there is.
