The Most Impressive Non-Force Users in 'Star Wars' Legends
The world of the Star Wars Legends is massive, spanning from the earliest recorded history of the galaxy to over a century after the Battle of Endor and the destruction of the second Death Star. As mentioned before, the story of Star Wars is mainly centered around the Force and those who use it. The heroes use the light side of the Force while the villains use the dark side.

10 Things About Anakin That Don't Make Sense
The Star Wars universe has introduced us to so many memorable characters throughout its existence, but none more so than Anakin Skywalker. The original trilogy would confirm that he's once a Jedi Knight, like Obi-Wan, but who turns to the dark side of the Force before the events of the first film. It wouldn't be until 1999 when the first of the first film of the prequel trilogy was released that we would be introduced to a pre-Vader Anakin, setting up his tragic backstory. Thanks to the expanded media, such as the TV series The Clone Wars, we have gotten an even deeper look into his backstory. However, the more we get, the more questions it seems to pose.

For a planet that is farthest from the bright center of the universe, a lot of things happen on Tatooine: Anakin Skywalker is born there, he meets his future wife in Watto’s junk shop, and he begins his fall to the dark side there, after he unsuccessfully tries to free his mother. Luke Skywalker lives there for the first 19 years of his life, as does Obi-Wan for his last 19 years, and (Darth) Maul’s arc finally comes to a tragic end on that desert planet.

Every Star Wars Movie Ranked From Worst to Best
It’s May the 4th and I have a lot to say about Star Wars. I’ve been in a Star Wars kick for the majority of this pandemic. The Mandalorian aired on Disney+ and rejuvenated my love for the franchise. I was then inspired to marathon The Clone Wars in its entirety for the first time. I can honestly say that The Clone Wars is probably one of my favorite things to ever come out of Star Wars.
'The Bad Batch' Cameo That Took Me Out Of The Premiere
Let me preface this by saying that I enjoyed most of The Bad Batch premiere episode "Aftermath." It shows the potential of this series and how the addition of Omega can ground the squad, keeping the series from becoming a monotonous action-fest. However, the beginning had me at the edge of my seat, and not for the reasons one might hope. It took me out of the narrative because the way that it was executed (no pun intended) was bothering me.
