Review of Obi-Wan Kenobi
Checking in with a review of the six-episode season of Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney, which I thought was just superb. In fact, I liked it better than any of the Star Wars movies released since the prequel trilogy, 1999-2005 -- which I liked almost as much as the original trilogy, which I flat-out loved.
'Weird Al' Yankovic Returns To Star Wars In New LEGO Special
To quote The Simpsons, “He who is tired of Weird Al is tired of life.” From “Another One Rides the Bus” to “White & Nerdy,” Alfred “Weird Al” Yankovic has been a master of song parody. His iconic singing voice and skills with the accordion have made him a staple of silly songwriting whose satires of popular songs occasionally outweigh the popularity of the songs they were based on. As such, Weird Al has made sure to poke fun at some of the biggest names in music as well as some of the most popular franchises in all of pop culture.
Were Darth Vader And Kylo Ren Actually Redeemed?
The story of Star Wars always has been about the eternal struggle of good vs. evil, heroes vs. villains. However, as the storylines of Star Wars have expanded throughout the years, so have the moral dimensions of various characters. Several characters introduced in the movies and series started out as villains, but later changed sides, or at least became occasional allies to the heroes or were less “black and white” in terms of their morality. I will primarily focus on the major villains-turned-heroes of the Skywalker Saga, specifically Darth Vader and Kylo Ren, and whether they deserve to be considered redeemed.
Who Could Have Trained Anakin If Obi-Wan Died Before ‘Attack Of The Clones’?
We all know of the tragic story that befell Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. In fact, we are getting more information about the aftermath of that story with the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series that’s streaming now. As we journey through that aftermath, it’s easy to speculate what might have happened if Obi-Wan met a grim death BEFORE Attack of the Clones. Would Anakin have fallen faster? Would he have not fallen at all? We’re going to dissect who could have handled the ambition that is Anakin Skywalker and who wouldn’t have fit well with him.
10 Times Darth Vader Proved He Should Be Feared
The man knows how to make an entrance. There are many fantastic things to come out of the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series. Ewan McGregor back on our screens, live-action Inquisitors, eopies… One thing that the Star Wars fandom can agree on is that Obi-Wan Kenobi has brought back into the cultural zeitgeist how that seven-foot, black-durasteel-clad, rasping terminator is terrifying, and rightly so. Here are ten examples where Darth Vader showed that maybe sometimes it is better to be feared than loved.
Why It Was A Mistake To Kill The Entire Rogue One Crew
There were only two possible reactions to the end of Rogue One where they killed off the entire primary cast of the movie. People either loved it or hated it. I fall into the hated it camp and I want to explain why I think you should join me here.

“We knew that we needed a droid who was kinda like R2, but also not just another R2 unit” - Kilian Plunket, Rebels Art Director
Why Shadows Of The Empire Is So Beloved To Star Wars Fans
Shadows of the Empire began life when, in an attempt to reinvigorate the franchise prior to the cinematic release of the special editions, Lucasarts met with Expanded Universe author Steve Perry to develop a story set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The original idea had been originally discussed during a meeting between Lucasfilm publishing director Lucy Autrey Wilson and Bantam Books Editor Lou Aronica, where a multimedia crossover was proposed, encompassing the disparate license holders of Star Wars, and leading to the prospect of a “movie project without the movie”, that Shadows of the Empire would eventually become.
How 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Adds Context To The Sequel Trilogy
Star Wars is a multimedia interconnected universe. Sometimes certain stories can have an impact on other stories in the franchise in both direct and subtle ways. With every new tale, we add a bit more to the wider tapestry of the galaxy far, far away. The new Obi-Wan Kenobi series is already doing its part in adding depth to the overall Star Wars lore in many ways. Despite being a sequel to Revenge of the Sith, Obi-Wan Kenobi is expanding on the entire Skywalker Saga, especially by adding context to the sequel trilogy itself.
Witnessing The Formation Of The Rebel Alliance One Disney+ Series At A Time
For a long time, the span between the end of the Republic and the destruction of the first Death Star went largely untouched. We knew the Jedi were gone, the Empire ruled the galaxy, and a rebellion had started. However, it was all very general information. We weren’t sure how the rebellion began or how the Jedi got eliminated. All we had to fall back on were the early rough drafts of Star Wars and Legends content that is basically considered rumors. However, slowly but surely, stories started to fill in the gaps.
