Are The Knights of Ren Going To Be Force-Sensitive?

One of the more interesting scenes in The Force Awakens is Rey’s vision. For years I have been discovering new, exciting things in that one scene but one of the elements to that part that has always fascinated me are the Knights of Ren.

They’ve only made a single, brief appearance in that temporary moment in the movie but they have captured the attention of Star Wars fan all over the world. Now, with Episode IX filming and leaks arriving on the web of Adam Driver filming heavy action scenes with people wielding spears and axes (sounds like the Knights of Ren to me) it’s pretty obvious that we will be getting a major introduction to the shady group sooner rather than later. But here’s the question; are they going to be Force-sensitive?

The Trailer For ‘Star Wars Resistance’ Is Here

After the final season of Star Wars: Rebels ended earlier this year people began to wonder what the next Star Wars cartoon would be. Well, the animated series is called Star Wars: Resistance and it will focus on a young pilot named Kazuda Xiono who works as a spy for the Resistance. This cartoon will feature Poe Dameron, voiced by the actual Oscar Isaac, Captain Phasma, voiced by Gwendoline Christie, and everyone’s favorite droid, BB-8. Here’s the trailer.

What I like about this trailer are two things. One; I love the animation. It’s different and yet it’s just as detailed and concise as The Clone Wars cartoons. And the second thing I’m liking about this trailer is that it isn’t really showing anything.

This cartoon is interesting because it’s showing the Resistance shortly before the events of The Force Awakens which is really exciting. That means we’ll see characters we know plus maybe some plot points that’ll be elaborated further on in this animated series.

The cartoon will have an hour long premiere on the Disney channel on October 7. I’m totally going to watch it and share with you my reviews of the first couple of episodes.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day. May the Force (and the Resistance) be with you. 🙂

Should Anakin Skywalker Make An Appearance in ‘Episode IX’?

For the past two Star Wars movies in this current trilogy rumors have circulated that Anakin Skywalker would make an appearance in the films. In The Force Awakens they went far enough to create concept art showcasing Anakin Skywalker who would have appeared in Rey’s vision. He, unfortunately, didn’t make it into the end product of the film.

In The Last Jedi it was rumored that Rey would experience in one of her Force-training exercises a vision where one of the sea monsters (that Luke ended up milking) was living in a cave and it would transform into Anakin Skywalker. (That sounds reminiscent of Luke’s vision in the cave on Dagobah.) That also didn’t end up happening.

That rumor from The Last Jedi seemed all the more palpable because Hayden Christensen showed up at some Star Wars conventions last year, which he has’t done in a while.

No rumors have started circulating about Anakin making an appearance in Episode IX but if this is supposedly the Skywalker saga finale shouldn’t he be in it in some form or another? It’s already rumored that Darth Vader is going to make a cameo appearance so maybe he won’t show up after all.

Do I think he should be in the movie? Yeah, why not? I would love to see a Force Ghost Anakin Skywalker talk a little bit of sense into his deranged grandson, Ben Solo. I think it would be positively awesome. And one thing J.J Abrams knows how to do is to deliver a lot of fan-service moments that’ll make us all very, very happy.

What do yo think? Do you think Anakin should return in Episode IX or should he remain absent? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

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

My Mother’s Ranking of the ‘Star Wars’ Films

As you can probably tell from my blog I. Love. Star Wars! I’ve loved Star Wars ever since I was a baby girl and now, with Disney acquiring Lucasfilm, my love for the franchise has grown even more. And that has appeared to happen with my mother as well.

My mommy has never been an avid Star Wars fan. She knows about the movies but she has never really cared about the films or the characters…until recently. After The Force Awakens my mother has actually started to pay attention to these films and it’s kind of really awesome. So, today, I asked my mommy how she ranked the Star Wars films and I’m here to share her answer with you all. Enjoy!

1. The Force Awakens

My mommy isn’t a fan of going to the movie theaters because, in her words, it’s just an expensive nap but when we sent to see The Force Awakens for the first time my mommy enjoyed it so much that she was willing to watch it with us at the movie theaters again the very next day. Over the years my mother has watched the film numerous times and it has become her favorite Star Wars movie because it’s the only one she actually has seen all the way through more than once. She loves the characters, she loves the story, and it’s a good movie.

Should ‘Episode IX’ Be Split Into Two Movies?

Episode IX has started filming (*squeal*) and that means before we know it the first teaser featuring the highly-anticipated Star Wars movie will be out for all to see. But recently a very interesting rumor started circling the internet that this Skywalker/Solo saga finale will be split into two parts and when I heard it I got so excited at the thought.

You see, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi were unconventionally placed together because both of these films’ stories take place within a week and a half of each other. J.J Abrams ended The Force Awakens in such an exciting cliffhanger that Rian Johnson, the director and writer of The Last Jedi, wanted to know what happened next so he continued the story from where The Force Awakens left off. It was the first time this had ever happened in Star Wars because both previous trilogies featured sequels that took place years after their predecessors (Attack of the Clones is set ten years after The Phantom MenaceThe Empire Strikes Back is set three years after A New Hope.)

And The Last Jedi ended with such an intact statement that the story could honestly go anywhere from here on out. It felt more like a finale than a continuation into the next film and that’s where the point of this post comes in.

My Fifteen Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Characters

This past January I updated my list of my fifteen favorite Star Wars characters and after recently revisiting that post it’s definitely time to change that list once again. Enjoy!

15. Vice Admiral Holdo

Amilyn Holdo

Holdo is unlike any other character that has appeared in Star Wars and that’s what makes her so unique. It’s always exciting seeing brand new characters that we can’t associate with someone we’ve seen before in the franchise and even though she was killed off in The Last Jedi she has still easily become one of my favorite characters in Star Wars.

14. Poe Dameron

Poe Dameron is easily the greatest pilot in the galaxy (besides Rey and Kylo Ren) and that makes such an awesome character to have in this current trilogy. He helps fill the void that Han Solo has left with his unfortunate death in The Force Awakens and yet he doesn’t feel like a carbon copy of the iconic Star Wars character. That’s always important.

Who’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Band?

Wow, this week has gone by fast and that only means it’s time for another segment of Who’s Your Favorite? And this week it’s a fun topic in the form of Star Wars bands. Star Wars bands aren’t popular to a casual Star Wars viewer but to us fans the bands are some of the coolest characters to appear in the franchise. They provide galactic beats that are either hilarious, iconic, or downright cool. And that’s why I’m here to ask which Star Wars bands happens to be your favorite? Here they are.
