The Biggest Redemption In 'Star Wars' Was Not Anakin Skywalker
Let’s face it. The Star Wars fandom can be fickle at best, and completely exhausting at worst when it comes to the discourse and changing of opinions. Once upon a time, the prequel trilogy was universally disliked if one spent time online around any Star Wars discussion pages. Now, as a new generation of Star Wars fans has grown up, the opinion has changed to a more positive tone. People seem to miss George Lucas again since he is no longer making Star Wars films. Today’s redemption story is that of a little known creator by the name of Dave Filoni. He is considered a Star Wars god by fans these days for his work in Clone Wars, Rebels, Resistance, and The Mandalorian. However, once upon a time, he was disliked by many, especially those early fans of the Expanded Universe who thought that he did not understand Star Wars and was ruining the saga. Oh how the tide has turned.
Multiple Lightsaber Wielding Characters Confirmed In 'Kenobi' Series
Obi-Wan Kenobi is a favorite character of many Star Wars fans, due to his expert portrayals by Sir Alec Guinness originally and Ewan McGregor in the Prequel Trilogy, his status as a legacy character, and his unwavering path as a true Jedi Master. Fans have been clamoring for a movie or streaming show focusing on Master Kenobi for years and finally our calls have been answered with Obi-Wan Kenobi coming to Disney+ next year. This highly anticipated show will follow an exiled Kenobi during his days on Tatooine following Order 66, ten years after the fall of the Republic. His exact mission and the overall plot of the show are still closely guarded secrets but, little by little, rumors generated by cast and crew involved with the project have taken over the fan community. The most recent hot rumor comes to us from a member of the cast, Sung Kang, and could indicate that Kenobi might be crossing sabers with multiple foes or racing against the clock to save an imperiled Jedi.
The Untold Story Of Grand Master Yoda
When we first met Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back, he certainly defied expectations. Like Luke, we had been led to believe the Jedi Master was an unmatched and powerful warrior. What we got was quite different. “Wars do not make one great,” he had said. It was clear that despite his demeanor and appearance, this little Jedi was much more wise and knowledgeable than he first led on. His initial act was a ruse that he quickly dropped, but he did not reveal everything in his first encounter. Like Obi-Wan, Yoda had served in the Clone Wars. Even decades later, it was clear his wisdom came as a result of years of hardship. However, it was not until the arrival of the prequel films and the Clone Wars series that fans would learn of Yoda’s many trials.
Theory: Anakin Subconsciously Took Padme's Life Force, Facilitated By Padme's Will To Help Him
The ending of Revenge of the Sith tugged at our heartstrings on a certain level. Some of us sympathized with Anakin Skywalker when he discovered that, after all the sinister things he had done in the name of saving the love of his life from certain death, he was the ultimate cause for her death. Some of us young ones might have laughed at the emotional “No” uttered by the black armor-clad Darth Vader back when the movie first released in 2005. As an adult today, with slightly more experience, we can now understand his pain a little bit better. Today’s discussion is not about the pain he experienced, though. We will be looking at a theory concerning how Padme’s life force helped heal Anakin, thus causing her death.
'Star Wars: Hunters' Trailer Drops
Star Wars has had a long history of video games, which have been a staple of the franchise for a long time. Children for generations have been playing these games, managing to have an immersive experience in the galaxy far far away. In the new era, the video game side of things has moved a little slow over the years, however it seems that the new age of Star Wars games is about to begin. We have another trailer for a fun looking game called Star Wars: Hunters, the latest addition to Star Wars gaming.
Who Created Princess Leia’s Aesthetic?
Star Wars is one of the most iconic films in American history. This is due to both great storytelling and the timeless costumes. And as with all great works, fans are always curious about the origins of their favorite works, and Star Wars is no exception. Whether it’s drawing links between Star Wars and other sci-fi works like Dune or Perry Rhodan, or other inspirations such as Seven Samurai, it is easy for one to see that George Lucas’s sci-fi epic was not created in a vacuum. However, one of the most iconic looks of the first film (now episode IV), Star Wars: A New Hope, is Princess Leia’s hair. And as such, it has been the subject of much speculation since the film was released. The goal of this article is not to rehash old articles or detract from how others interpret Star Wars through their cultural lens. But rather, it is an attempt to ponder the actual origins of Princess Leia’s look and offer new evidence as to its providence.
'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.
