‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Takes An Interesting Turn With Its Latest Episode

Star Wars: Resistance¬†through its first few episodes was an underwhelming experience. The episodes’ situations were boring, uninteresting and it didn’t seem like this show was going to amount to much. But then with last week’s episode, ‘The High Tower’, everything seemed to change. The First Order finally started to come into the picture and my interest level for the show went up! And it seems that with this latest episode, ‘The Children from Tehar’, the momentum isn’t stopping.

In this episode, Kaxuda Xiono is trying to find a pair of runaway children to collect their 20,000 credit bounty but it’s not long before things become more complicated than it first seems. This episode has the right amount of comedy, it’s got some shocking moments, and it provides a tiny bit of suspense that makes the episode that much better.

Honestly, this show is getting more interesting by the week. I truly feel that this cartoon is leading to something very important and it’s only a matter of time before we figure out what that might be. *clapping my hands* Ooh, I’m so excited.

I’ll give this episode 88 out of a 100 and 3.8 out of 5 stars. I happened to like last week’s episode a tad bit more but this was definitely worth the wait. I absolutely can’t wait to see what happens next week! ūüôā

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

 

The Latest Episode of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Is Getting Me Excited!

Star Wars: Resistance¬†began with a few episodes that were good but weren’t great and I couldn’t help but feel a bit disappointed. So, last night I watched the latest episode but as you can suspect I wasn’t that interested. I figured it was going to be like all of the other episodes I had seen; semi-boring. It wasn’t.

With it being the fifth episode in the series so far¬†The High Tower¬†shines in ways that are very promising for the future. We’re finally getting a bit of First Order action in this latest episode and Kazuda Xiono delights as he takes us, the viewer, on a wild 22-minute adventure that is jam-packed with thrills and laughs to the end.

This Description of ‘Episode IX’ from Oscar Isaac Sounds Amazing

Episode IX¬†is of course on top secret mode until it premieres next year in movie theaters around the world but that doesn’t mean the actors aren’t talking about it. As¬†Star Wars¬†star, Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) goes through publicity for his latest movie,¬†Operation Finale, questions of¬†Episode IX¬†are sure to arise and this time he had a little bit to tell us. Here is what he said.

“It is a war movie. I mean, above and beyond, it is a movie about warriors.”

This next section is about his standing with his character, the Resistance leader, Poe Dameron.

“You want to get people [to question him] as opposed to have some sort of easy answer of like, ‚ÄėYeah, yeah, he did the right thing. He was a hero.’ What’s the cost of this stuff?”

And this next section is easily the most interesting part.

“[The Resistance] are guerrilla fighters, adhering closer to something like the Revolutionary War fighters or even the guerrillas in Cuba with Che and Fidel and all these guys living in the mountains, coming down to do some attacks, and going back and trying to hide from the ’empire’ of the United States. It’s that kind of ragged at this point.¬†

You hear about stories with [George] Washington as a general, where lots of people died based on their orders, but that is part of leadership and that push-and-pull in the fight for figuring out what’s the way to move forward.”

The Originality of a Space Battle in ‘The Last Jedi’

The Last Jedi was about as unconventional a Star Wars movie as you can get. Yes, it had lightsabers and Jedi, space battles and conversations of the Force, but Rian Johnson changed a lot about the way we view these movies. He took a more ethical approach to the entire story of Star Wars which led to a complex but satisfying sequel rather than just creating a fun action movie. One of those striking elements of the movie that he made his own happened to be the very first scene in The Last Jedi; the space battle.

Pursued by the Empire

Space battles have always been a huge staple of¬†Star Wars. In fact, the first scene ever to appear in a¬†Star Wars¬†film involved a space battle! That’s how important they are. Every¬†Star Wars¬†movie that there has been has had at least one space battle in it and¬†The Last Jedi¬†was thankfully not an exception…but Rian Johnson made sure to put his own spin on it.

Rumors for ‘Episode IX’ Have Arrived and They Are Very…Interesting

Now that¬†The Last Jedi¬†is firmly in my rearview mirror my attention should, of course, reside solely on the upcoming young¬†Solo¬†movie but my heart can’t stop thinking about¬†Episode IX¬†and it looks like I’m not the only one because rumors for the movie’s various plotlines have begun to surface and I’m here to share with you all of the juicy details. And just to let you know, these rumors are reportedly from Colin Trevorrow’s script (the director who was fired) so it isn’t clear if any of his ideas will actually make it into the final product. It’s still interesting to read though. ūüôā

Reader Discretion Advised! These rumors may prove to be major spoilers in¬†Episode IX¬†and so if you’d rather stay in the blue I advise to discontinue reading this NOW. I thank you for heeding my warning and I hope you enjoy!

Five Years Have Passed

Apparently,¬†Episode IX¬†will follow ‘Revenge of the Sith’ and ‘Return of the Jedi’ by jumping ahead by a fairly significant period of time (five years in this case). Kylo Ren’s rule over The First Order is now viewed as being “benevolent” by the majority of the Galaxy and not only is the Resistance no longer being rooted for by regular folk but there are even those within it wondering why they’re still fighting.

Now this sounds super exciting and different than what we’ve seen in the past. The Empire was always looked at as a terrible blight on the galaxy and Snoke’s First Order was viewed the same way but to think that Kylo Ren has turned the tyrannical organization into a government that is loved by many through the galaxy sounds awesome!

What’s Next for Rose?

Rian Johnson introduced a new major character to this current trilogy in the form of Rose, a Resistance mechanic who gets swept on an incredible adventure with Finn through the galaxy to stop the First Order. Rose was special for a couple of reasons. First of all, she was another strong woman that was being introduced to the¬†Star Wars¬†universe and that is always exciting. And secondly, she was the first major female Asian character to ever appear in a¬†Star Wars¬†movie and that was yet another boundary¬†the¬†Star Wars¬†franchise had crossed. Awesome! But what now? After the events of¬†The Last Jedi¬†what should happen to her and where should her story go? That’s what I’m about to theorize and I hope you enjoy. ūüôā

Rose Was Just A Mechanic But Now She Is A Resistance Fighter. What Next?

Rose had a tragic beginning to her story. She had just lost her best friend, her older sister, Paige, and she was an emotional wreck but she was able to find something worth caring about again in Finn. Finn, to her, was a shining light that portrayed what the Resistance was all about and she couldn’t help but look up to him but when she found out he was a fraud, of sorts, she couldn’t believe it. As she spent time with him she realized how kind of a person Finn truly was and her caring for him started to take a romantic turn. Long story short, she fought with the Resistance, nearly killed herself to save Finn’s life, and she told the ex-stormtrooper that she loved him. When we see her again in¬†Episode IX¬†what will she be up to? Well, that’s what I’m going to explain in this next segment.

Rose was a Resistance fighter at the end of¬†The Last Jedi¬†but when we see Rose again I think J.J Abrams should keep her as a mechanic but she should undoubtedly be a lead mechanic. I would love to see Rose create some fascinating new upgrades to the X-Wings, the Fleet, and the Resistance soldiers’ weapons and gear that could help the Resistance in their fight against the First Order. That would be a great use of her character and could make her a very important character to this last movie.

I mean, what if she could make something, a weapon or some sort of device, that was so powerful that the First Order would be deathly afraid of it like the Rebellion used to react when they heard of the first Death Star? Not only would that be something that hasn’t happened before in¬†Star Wars¬†but it would also truly incorporate that mechanical aspect¬†of hers. If we turn her into a plain Resistance fighter like everyone else she won’t be any different than Finn or Poe but if she’s the one who’s behind-the-scenes making mechanical upgrades that could help the Resistance in their fight against the First Order that would be pretty incredible.

Of course, she’ll still have a compelling story as she delves into her feelings with Finn and tries to defeat the First Order for her deceased sister, Rose, but I feel that that would be the most imaginative way to use her character.

I thank you for reading this theory and I hope you have a fantastic day. May the Force Be With You.

What’s Next for Finn?

Finn has become undoubtedly one of the greatest and most recognizable characters in¬†Star Wars¬†and after having a rather adventurous time in both¬†The Force Awakens¬†and¬†The Last Jedi¬†the last leg of his journey is drawing closer and so I’m going to create a theory of where he should be the next time we see him. Enjoy!

Finn Is a Bona Fide Resistance Hero Now…So What’s Next?

When we saw Finn again after the horror of what happened to him in The Force Awakens he was definitely ready to jet to the farthest star system away from both the First Order and the Resistance. He had just come out of a coma and was healed to a point thanks to his bacta suit and had only woken to a situation worse than he had left after nearly getting killed by Kylo Ren. But throughout the film he starts to realize what it means to be a Resistance fighter and the people, like the children in Canto Bight, that he could save. Long story short, he decided to stay with the Resistance and fight the First Order head on and no longer run away from the tyrannical organization. But if you noticed, in the last forty minutes of The Last Jedi his heroic side sprang forth tenfold and that leads me to this next segment.

If Finn is such a Resistance hero by the end of¬†The Last Jedi¬†then that means when next we see him he’ll undoubtedly have gained a rank. I think in¬†Episode IX¬†we should see Finn as Captain Finn. Not only would be that symbolistic of his two movie long feud with Captain Phasma and kind of fitting that he would rise to the same rank but it would also be very awesome to see him in a position of leadership like that. It’ll really show how far his character has come and I think it would be very cool to see.

Another thing that would be super awesome to introduce to his character is for him to try to recruit First Order defects and this is why I say this. In a deleted scene for¬†The Last Jedi¬†we see Finn in a confrontation with his rival, Captain Phasma. As he is surrounded by stormtroopers waiting for Phasma’s command to end him he tells them of Phasma’s traitorous actions when she sold out the First Order to save her own skin in¬†The Force Awakens. In that moment the stormtroopers hesitated and you could visibly see them questioning their loyalty to Phasma.

Of course, because Phasma is awesome she killed the stormtroopers within seconds but Finn could easily leave more seeds. What if he could find other people like him in the First Order that are questioning their reason to stay in the First Order and he can recruit those teetering individuals? That would be SO COOL! It would also give an interesting story line to¬†Star Wars¬†that hasn’t been seen before and that’s always an important thing for this franchise. When so many fans and viewers are wanting new stories to get commited to with these movies you definitely need to bring a new direction that people wouldn’t see coming and I think this would undoubtedly be a plus to Finn’s story.

Of course these are just theories and none of it might come true but if some of it is correct I will totally be surprised and thrilled. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a glorious day.
