Daisy Ridley Did Not Know Rey's Lineage During 'The Force Awakens'
During the marketing for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, fans started to speculate who exactly Rey could be. As we all know by this point, she is the granddaughter of Senator Chancellor Emperor Darth Sidious Sheev Palpatine. This revelation in Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker was disappointing to those who loved the idea of "Rey Nobody" that seemed to have been confirmed in Episode VIII - The Last Jedi. On the other hand, the "Rey Nobody" revelation was disappointing to some who expected Rey to be related to someone important, because some believed that the character had to be related to someone important in order to be powerful.
The Reason That The Rule Of Two Doesn't Make A Lot Of Sense
For thousands of years, the Sith and Jedi have been at war, fighting to control the balance of the Force. The Jedi seek to protect and defend innocent lives within the Republic while the Sith desire only dominance over the galaxy. By its very nature, the dark side requires great aggression and anger to draw upon, requiring the user to bend the Force to their will. This is in contrast to the Jedi who seek to submit to the will of the Force, living in symbiosis with its will. Over the millennia, many victories have been claimed on both sides, by light and dark, but few events or individuals have changed the scope of this conflict like Darth Bane. Following the fall of Lord Kaan's Brotherhood of Darkness at the Seventh Battle of Ruusan, the sole survivor of the Sith, Darth Bane, forged a new path for the disciples of the dark side called the Rule of Two. The history of the Sith is obscured in shadow and deception, and as such, what we know of them is often regarded as legend, still awaiting confirmation in the current canon.
Epic Lightsaber Battle On "Hoth" Has These Two Going Viral
Colorado, February 2021. It was about 30 degrees outside. Snowflakes scattered down from the sky, covering the ground with a thick white blanket. While most people huddled indoors by the fire, sipping on hot chocolate, struggling against the shivering cold, a different battle continued. In a different sort of "Duel of the Fates," two men engaged in a battle of good versus evil. No, they were not having a snowball fight. No, they were not having a one-on-one hockey game. No, they were not in a “who can shovel the driveway the fastest” competition. Two men reenacted a fight that started a long time ago, in the galaxy far far away.
This Han Solo Location Was Initially Planned For ‘The Mandalorian’
There are certain numbers that every Star Wars fan will have an instant association with: 1138 is probably the most obvious one, but there are others as well:
Where The Bad Batch Are At The End Of The Clone Wars
Clone Force 99, also known as the "Bad Batch," has taken the Star Wars universe by a storm ever since their introduction in season 7 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The team of elite operatives with favorable genetic mutations (Hunter, Crosshair, Wrecker, and Tech) also welcomed fan-favorite clone trooper Echo into their ranks, turning the group into an unstoppable five-man squad.
Hera Syndulla Rumored To Replace Gina Carano's Cara Dune In 'Rangers Of The New Republic'
A lot has been happening with the Star Wars franchise on the live-action television front. Following the success of The Mandalorian, Lucasfilm announced last December that there would be several more live-action shows coming to Disney+. A few of the shows are essentially spin-offs of The Mandalorian: Ahsoka, The Book of Boba Fett, and Rangers of the New Republic. Out of these three, the latter is the biggest question mark, as it does not include a character name in the title.
Bo-Katan Actress Wants To See This Certain Mandalorian Make A Live-Action Cameo
On the hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian, viewers were treated to appearances by characters from other Star Wars media, including the realm of animation. With characters like Bo-Katan Kryze and Ahsoka Tano making the transition from The Clone Wars to the live-action front, or even Cobb Vanth jumping from the pages of the Aftermath novels to the screen, the franchise has proven that almost no character is off limits. We even got to see Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker in the season 2 finale (results of which have gotten admittedly mixed reception). Fans who have read or watched other Star Wars media feel rewarded, while newcomers who get interested in faces who are newer to them become curious and want to dig through the Star Wars catalog to learn more.
5 Cameos That We Want To See In 'The Bad Batch'
"They call themselves the Bad Batch." - Commander Cody Star Wars Day is going to be more exciting this year. Star Wars: The Bad Batch will debut on Disney+ on May 4, 2021, with subsequent episodes coming out every Friday starting on May 7, 2021.
How A 41-Year-Old Muppets Show Spoiled ‘The Empire Strikes Back’
The Muppets and Star Wars have more in common than you would think. 3D CGI was not a thing in 1980 when Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back was released. So, to create the strange, cool, and interesting creatures and characters, Lucasfilm had to use puppets…or more accurately, Muppets.
Theory: Asteroid Field In 'The Empire Strikes Back' Was The Test Planet For The Death Star
“Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately three thousand seven hundred and twenty to one!” -C-3PO to Han Solo
The Star Wars Saga
Nine movies into the long-running Star Wars saga, the Jedis have finally defeated the Sith. But how would the galaxy so far, far away have fared after the First Order was defeated?
Kamino: Chapter 2
We walked down the low-lit hallways in the darkest hour of the night. Shaak Ti had thoroughly explained her suspicions to me and I tried to wrap my warped mind around the concept of this conspiracy. Shaak Ti believed the inhibitor chips were a danger to the integrity of the Republic, that there was something hidden deeper within them that could trigger all-out anarchy amongst the clones. I was now aware of the effects the inhibitor had on my brain, it kept my thoughts suppressed and took away any individuality that could occur in the cloning process. However Ti believed that the chips were faulty, and if not faulty, they were designed for darker purposes than the Kaminoans let on.
