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.

Is Luke Skywalker the Worst Jedi Master Ever?

Well, The Book of Boba Fett is over. I can honestly say I’m relieved. The show had its moments of brilliance (mainly when it was The Mandalorian 2.5) but ultimately, as a whole, the show was a bit ridiculous. There was too much going on, too many flashbacks, and not enough awesome Boba-ness. (Yes, they Disney-fied Boba Fett.)

Forget that though. Let’s talk about Luke Skywalker and his track record of being a TERRIBLE Jedi Master.

In The Last Jedi we see Luke as this grumpy, hopeless old man who wants nothing to do with the Jedi. Even when his sister begs for his help he goes about his business on Ahch-To with a scowl on his face, refusing to teach Rey the ways of the Jedi.

When he finally does decide to teach her the ways of the Force it’s with only one goal in mind; to show her why the Jedi are so awful. He has a point which only reaches a catalyst after his nephew Ben falls to the dark and destroys his Jedi Academy. He ends up infuriating Rey so badly that she found herself willing to trust Kylo Ren more than the very man who once saved the galaxy from the Empire and Palpatine. Ouch.

His nephew Ben turned to the dark because apparently Luke was being a terrible mentor and Snoke was able to manipulate him. Snoke, a twisted being who seems like the last person you should trust seemed more trustworthy than Ben’s uncle, Luke Skywalker.

‘The Book of Boba Fett’ Is the Strangest Show I’ve Ever Seen

Despite the obvious fact that the last two episodes of The Mandalorian, I mean, The Book of Boba Fett (😏) have been phenomenal that doesn’t excuse the major failures of this show. Just look at the IMDb scores for the first four episodes.

Chapter 1: 7.4/10

Chapter 2: 8.3/10

Chapter 3: 6.4/10

Chapter 4: 7.6/10

These scores reveal a show that’s ultimately mediocre and that’s not bad…until one remembers that this is a show about Boba Fett, one of the most beloved characters in the franchise.

I Think ‘The Mandalorian’ Could Become a Movie

I know it may seem like a long shot but hear me out. The Mandalorian has become one of the most universally loved properties in Star Wars. Just look at what happened last week when Mando took over an entire episode of The Book of Boba Fett. People couldn’t stop talking about it.

So, with all of this love for this character and his story, just imagine if there was ever a movie.

I could see The Mandalorian‘s third season leading up to a nail-biting cliffhanger whose story continues with a powerful conclusion in the form of a massive, epic movie that we could see in all formats, including IMAX.

It would be the biggest movie event for Star Wars fans since The Force Awakens.

And even though I’m pretty sure this won’t happen it’s always fun to dream, right?

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

My Spoiler Review of ‘The Book of Boba Fett’

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!

The Reason Why Luke’s Entrance in ‘The Mandalorian’ Is So Perfect: The Music

I’ve recently revisited The Mandalorian and yeah…I forgot how magical it is. That finale is truly something special; from the super cool all-female unit consisting of Bo-Katan, Cara Dune, Fennec Shand, and Koska Reeves to the imminent showdown between Moff Gideon and Mando which pretty much is the most fulfilling duel since Rey vs. Kylo in The Force Awakens. But of course the best part arrives in the finale’s final fifteen minutes which offers one of the best surprises in the entire franchise’s history with Luke’s unbelievable return.

But what is it that makes his return so special? We all knew a Jedi was coming and we all kind of expected it to be Luke but it still sent chills down our spines when our affirmations turned out to be true. The magic honestly belongs to Ludwig Gorannson’s incredible score.

You see, when the Jedi usually arrive to save the day they are accompanied with a heroic rendition of the Force Theme but here we finally observe the mysticism of the Jedi through the eyes of non-Force wielders.

For Mando and co., they didn’t see the X-Wing’s arrival as a savior moment. In fact, for all they knew, an even scarier individual had arrived and Gorannson portrays that perfectly in his music for that moment.

Watch the scene below.
