Vanity Fair’s Newest Issue is a Dream for ‘Star Wars’ Fans

It’s been a while since I’ve felt like this about Star Wars. You know that feeling. That warm, endlessly joyful feeling in your very soul that only Star Wars can give you. Well, I got that feeling yesterday when June’s issue of Vanity Fair was released online, bringing with it a bunch of jaw-dropping Star Wars goodness.

I’m dead.

Annie Leibovitz is at again with another epic showcasing of Star Wars at its finest. But this time, I know for a fact the long wait will live up to the hype.

The First Official Images for ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Have Arrived!

HUMP DAY! No, seriously, I’m trying not to write in all caps because right now I’m losing my mind a little. The Entertainment Weekly issue for Obi-Wan Kenobi just dropped and yes, my entire month has been made. Here they are!

A gruff, worn Obi-Wan Kenobi graces the front of Entertainment Weekly. His expression says it all. This is not the same Kenobi that we knew from the prequels.

One thing Obi-Wan Kenobi has always been good at is spying. Well, he’s back to being shady in this picture and I LOVE IT!

We knew this show was going to have Inquisitors but…it’s got an Inquisitor!!!! Moses Ingram makes her Star Wars debut as Inquisitor Reva and honestly, the realization that we will be getting lightsaber duels in this show is getting me all giddy. I’m so excited.

INQUISITOR SIGHTING!

The level of excitement I’m feeling right now. I’ve wanted this for years and now…now it’s happening! Obi-Wan Kenobi has always been one of my favorite Star Wars characters and for him to finally get his long-awaited return is just…

Yeah, I’m teary-eyed just thinking about how happy this show is going to make me.

My Ten Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Characters: Updated

I haven’t done this in a while because I actually haven’t cared to. I want to make a top ten Marvel heroes list but there are so many shows and movies these days it’s constantly changing (I’ll probably still write one next anyway.)

Star Wars on the other hand is a lot easier to decipher when it comes to ranking my favorite characters because there aren’t as many that I truly love. I think the last time I shared a ranking it was before The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian had come out so…this should be interesting. Enjoy!

10. Rey

There was a time when Rey was my favorite Star Wars character hands down but thanks to Abrams and Johnson’s clashing visions of the character she was dumbed down into a chosen-one type of hero with no clear inclinations as to why.

I liked Rey as a nobody, then she became a somebody, and now she’s a Skywalker. It’s draining. Plus, I love Daisy Ridley but it seemed like she was trying just a bit too hard to convey all of this emotion in Rey for the finale and ultimately just came across as a kind of annoying emotional wreck.

The only reason why I still have Rey in my top ten is because if they announced a Rey Disney+ series right now I would lose my mind so I definitely still harbor some love for the character.

9. Kylo Ren (Pre-The Rise of Skywalker)

And who surpassed Rey as my favorite character for quite a long while? Kylo Ren. It was The Last Jedi that did it as Rian Johnson fleshed out his character by making him a victim of Luke’s failure rather than just a crazed baddie. I loved the character development and was super into Kylo Ren’s story and his potential to return to being Ben Solo.

Then The Rise of Skywalker happened and suddenly he was no longer cool, he was no longer interesting, and he literally got no lines to speak as Ben Solo except for, “Ow.” What type of mess is that?

I remember leaving the movie theater after having watched The Rise of Skywalker the first time asking myself, “What did they do to my boy, Kylo?” I was furious, and still am in fact.

So, while I did love Kylo Ren a whole heck of a lot before The Rise of Skywalker it’s his story in the finale that ruined his character for me. It is only because of his role pre-The Rise of Skywalker that he’s on this list.

Disney Investor Day: ‘Star Wars’ Edition

Last night happened. What do I mean by that? It was the annual Disney Investor Day and this time, we got to share in the awesome proceedings. Last night during a streamable event, people were given the opportunity to see what’s coming new to theaters and its streaming services over the next few years. And to everyone’s great surprise, 10 Star Wars projects were announced among a bunch of other shocking and stunning news.

Three of the projects were expected: the Cassian Andor Disney+ series, the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series, and the new animated series, The Bad Batch. However, it was the other seven announcements that shattered the internet and left my brain reeling with absolute shock. So, with that being said, let’s take a look at these new projects.
