'Book Of Boba Fett' Director Says It Will Live Up To The Hype
The Book of Boba Fett is on the way. Soon, we shall see the return of the most feared bounty hunter in the known galaxy. Maybe not on the big screen as it was thought back in the day when a Boba Fett movie was in the works, but on a smaller screen on Disney+. The director and showrunner of the series Robert Rodriguez said that this show is “going to blow [our] minds.” What does this mean? What sort of mind blowing revelations will we see in this latest addition to the Disney+ gallery of shows?
Hayden Christensen Shows Off 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Production Hat In Photos
It has taken quite some time for the Star Wars family to accept Hayden Christensen. After his performance as the young Jedi Padawan and later Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, the Canadian actor was harshly criticized for his wooden and rather expressionless performances. Although it is true that the love scenes between Anakin and Padme were awkward, it would be unfair to put the blame completely on Christensen who probably did his best with the directions he was given. Also, it is well know that George Lucas was NOT a people director.
The Force Will Be With Me
Here’s something I’ve been pondering for some time, as both a fan and storytelling enthusiast. What is it about Star Wars that captures the adoration and imagination of so many?
Are We Entering A Golden Age Of 'Star Wars'?
Since Disney’s buyout of Star Wars, many have wondered what amount of content we would get from Lucasfilm now that it had all the power and resources of Disney under its command. The first real wave of Star Wars was 2013-2019, when we got five movies and two television series, along with many books. It was a good effort with some great content. However, now it seems that things are really ramping up. We are getting several television shows in one year. While the movies have been spaced out, they do seem to want to be on their A game when it comes to making these films. On the book side we have an entire multimedia event in The High Republic, and a few games are beginning to trickle their way in with the new Knights of the Old Republic remake. We might be entering a new Golden Age of Star Wars.
You Would Never Believe Where Luke Learned Lightsaber Combat From
Luke Skywalker has been a fan favorite character since the debut of Star Wars in 1977. The plucky moisture farmer defied the Empire and inspired fans everywhere with his optimism, clear moral compass, and one-in-a-million shot to bring down the first dreaded Death Star. As the saga progressed, we saw Luke grow into his own, claim the title of Jedi Knight, and resist the seduction of the Dark Side. Luke went through a lot of growth and development over the course of four years fighting in the Galactic Civil War. His training as a Jedi was paramount to these steps and his evolution as a character. While most Star Wars fans are well versed in the lessons taught to him by his Jedi teachers, such as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Grand Master Yoda, Luke benefitted from another instructor. While this tertiary teacher was no Jedi and could not touch the Force, he was nevertheless a dangerous combat instructor and educated Luke in many of the forms of lightsaber combat, albeit in an arrogant and condescending way.
Armorer Actress Discusses Her Character's Future After 'The Mandalorian' Season 1
The first season of The Mandalorian introduced a fair amount of new Star Wars characters to Disney+ viewers a couple of years ago. Din Djarin and Grogu were the focus of the show, but there were some interesting side characters as well, one of them being a Mandalorian simply known as "The Armorer," portrayed by Emily Swallow. We last saw her in the aftermath of Imperials having killed some underground Mandalorians on the planet Navarro. She remains behind, and is able to take down some stormtroopers who come her way.
Check Out This Deleted Boba Fett Scene From ‘Mandalorian’ Season 2
Every fan loves behind-the-scenes, bloopers, and deleted scenes from their favorite movies and shows. Disney and Lucasfilm know this very well, and recently released a new shot from a scene that was intended to be in The Mandalorian depicting a meeting between certain two characters. A Disney Gallery episode recently showcased the return of Luke Skywalker from the end of season 2 of Mandalorian, which in turn jump-started more conversation involving Book of Boba Fett and some characters that will be in that show. Of course, we do not know much since Lucasfilm and Disney are notoriously staying silent on the particulars. With the series’ scheduled release date of December 2021 coming up very soon, hopefully we will see more promotional material, or perhaps some teaser trailers some time this October or November at the latest.
Sony Drops Teaser Trailer For "Star Wars: Knights of The Old Republic Remake
Star Wars fans rejoice, for a new teaser trailer has just been released today, making an announcement many, many fans have dreamed of. It is now official, a Knights of the Old Republic remake is indeed coming, exclusively, to PlayStation 5.
How The High Republic Jedi Handled Older Force-Sensitive Students
It is no secret that Force-sensitive children are eligible to undertake training to become Jedi only if it begins at a very young age, something which was highlighted in The Phantom Menace when Qui-Gon Jinn presented Anakin Skywalker to the Jedi Council as having immense potential. Despite Anakin eventually becoming an exception, the general rule was a strict one in the Galactic Republic era. However, in the age of the High Republic, the Jedi used to take an alternative approach towards such children. This topic was a central theme in Issues 1-5 of Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures, opening up the discussion of whether the Anakin's training predicament would have changed should his situation be normalized as in the High Republic.
Remembering When Carrie Fisher Brutally Roasted George Lucas
When the tragic passing of the much beloved Carrie Fisher was announced back in December 2016, the entire world went into mourning. Although she was best known for her role as Princess Leia in Star Wars, she was also a wonderful human being who was always up for a laugh and didn't take life too seriously, brightening up every room she entered. I remember the moment my phone gave me the notification of the news and feeling completely sad even though I obviously didn't know her personally. That's the effect she had on her fans.
Dark Secrets Hidden Inside Mustafar
Mustafar, the world where Darth Vader was born... The planet has always had an air of legend in the galaxy far, far away. The same is true in the real world from an out of universe perspective as well. Star Wars fans have known about its existence for a long time even before the prequel trilogy. The Return of the Jedi novelization detailed how Anakin Skywalker became Darth Vader on an unnamed lava planet. Many wondered just what this place was. What were the great mysteries of this planet? Just what made the place that turned Anakin into Vader so special. Well, the planet Mustafar has a bit of history to it beyond its connection to the Dark Lord of the Sith. It is a very fantastical planet that Star Wars has chosen to develop beyond what was depicted on film.
Wedge Antilles, The Unsung Hero Of The Rebellion
It might be a headscratcher to casual viewers of the Star Wars films if one were to acknowledge Wedge Antilles as a hero of the Rebellion. He may not be Luke, Han, Leia, Lando, Chewie, Artoo, or Threepio, but he is present in all three films of the original trilogy, during which is is instrumental in the major battles. Despite being a side character, he is a familiar face who essentially becomes an underdog to root for.
