Opinion: Recasting Cara Dune Would Be Okay
By now, pretty much everyone who has their finger on the pulse of Star Wars news knows that Lucasfilm and Disney are no longer moving forward with Gina Carano's portrayal of Cara Dune in The Mandalorian or any other Star Wars projects due to her posts on social media. As expected, there is a question of whether or not the character should be recast. While some may argue that the character has a lot of baggage due to Carano and how she's being perceived now, I actually think that recasting the character could work.
Inside the Slave I: Boba Fett's Swiss Army Knife Of A Ship
The Slave I is one of the most iconic ship designs in Star Wars. The personal vehicle of infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett, the Slave I immediately made an impression on me the first time I saw it in The Empire Strikes Back. Sleek, yet powerful-looking, this unique ship rises from a lying position and rotates so what was the top is now facing forward. If we were to compare it to the human body, the ship goes from lying on its back to standing and facing forward. This raised questions about how this functions, as in The Empire Strikes Back, we never see how Boba Fett boards, enters the pilot’s seat, and then takes off.
The Reason Anakin And Obi-Wan's Duel Is A Perfect Masterpiece
Comic Book Resources recently posted about how, in the annals of the Star Wars saga, the Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi duel was such a genius masterpiece, and I wanted to share some of my thoughts about this as well. From the time before George Lucas brought the story of the rise and eventual fall of galactic legend turned dark villain Anakin Skywalker (aka Darth Vader), we learned some important things throughout the original Star Wars trilogy about the man who would become the evil Sith Lord and servant to the even more malevolent Sith Lord Darth Sidious (aka Emperor Palpatine).
New 'Star Wars' Arena Combat Revealed For The Nintendo Switch
It seems that the universe of Star Wars doesn’t rest, and Lucasfilm is working in another area of the galaxy far away, where every fan can be part of the saga in real time and compete each other until one team can rule the galaxy like the Sith Lord Darth Vader. Or, even better: you can save someone from the dark side and the forces of evil, like the young Jedi Luke Skywalker might do.
Rumor: Mena Massoud To Play Ezra Bridger in Live-Action 'Ahsoka' Series
I just want to make this clear that this is just a rumor, but the hosts of Kessel Run Transmissions seem extremely confident in their sources and they are 100% convinced that the casting will go through. But, we’ll just have to wait and see until Disney and Lucasfilm makes an official announcement.
10 Things You Didn’t Know About General Grievous
Throughout the time of the Clone Wars, there was an enemy who was feared by clones and Jedi alike. That, of course, was none other than the fearless supreme commander of the Droid Army, General Grievous. Here are ten things you didn’t know about the great general:
The Real Reason Yoda's Species Is So Rare
One of the biggest unanswered questions in the Star Wars universe is the actual species name of characters like Yoda and Grogu. There hasn't been a single piece of Star Wars media that has gone into it, which is odd. The rest of the species have names (Jedi Master Plo Koon is a Kel Dor, Aayla Secura is a Twi'lek, and so on), but Yoda's species has been left unknown, which is unusual for such an iconic character. It's not just unusual for the Star Wars universe, but even media in general. Pick an alien and it has a name. Even the Predator species from the films of the same title have names.
How 'Star Wars' Legends Fits Alongside 'Star Wars' Canon
When it comes to fandoms, there is one question that is asked more frequently than any other and across all intellectual properties: "is that canon?" Fans desire to separate the "true" events of their favorite fictional universe from the speculation, fan theories, and online rumors and nonsense. However, a disturbing trend has emerged as a result of this, specifically within the already schism-prone Star Wars fanbase. Great stories are being shelved and overlooked, simply because they fall under the de-canonized "Legends" banner. While the events of these stories no longer line up with the films, the rich character development, innovative new ideas, and bizarre new locales found within Legends content can and have shaped Star Wars for the better.
