    12 Hits and Misses From ‘Star Wars: Episode I–The Phantom Menace’

    12 Hits and Misses From ‘Star Wars: Episode I–The Phantom Menace’

    Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace made its debut in May 1999. If you were a Star Wars fan then, it meant you had waited 16 years to watch another installment of the epic space fantasy saga in the theatres since 1983’s Return of the Jedi.

    Why 'Star Wars' Is Dying

    Why 'Star Wars' Is Dying

    When George Lucas decided to sell his beloved creation to Disney, he handpicked a seasoned producer to run Lucasfilm. Not just any seasoned producer. Kathleen Kennedy has a fabulous track record in Hollywood. As Steven Spielberg’s go-to producer, she has helped turn out some memorable movies over the past three decades. Iconic films like Raiders of the Lost Ark and ET are just a sampling of what she’s accomplished in her long and successful career. However, her appointment was quickly overshadowed by Lucasfilm deciding to abolish all prior canon content post-Return of the Jedi. Years and years of the continuing heroics of Luke, Han, and Leia were now meant to be accepted as Legends material. It was not the worst move, but a completely surprising one. Fans wondered what would happen next if all the canon stories were obsolete. Kathleen didn’t keep us waiting long.

    Freaky Friday Presents: 'Star Wars'

    Freaky Friday Presents: 'Star Wars'

    Star Wars has some of the most well-known and beloved characters to grace pop culture in recent years. Luke, Leia, and Han make up the "golden trio" of the original trilogy and their interactions and character arcs are some of the strongest moments from Episodes 4, 5 and 6. Recently I learned that before there was Luke, creator George Lucas had designed for a female lead. But we all know how it really went; Lucas settled on the drama queen "bratty moisture farm version" (Collura, 2014) of Luke we all know and love. And this meant the introduction of the ever-iconic Princess Leia. But this got me thinking… why the change? Not that I think gender is important here and let's face it, it was the 70s and female action/Sci-Fi leads weren’t an established genre norm. This being challenged at the end of the decade with the creation of Alien (thank God for and Ripley!) So I did some digging into other things I didn’t know about the Skywalker Saga, which lead me to the main question of this article: what would Star Wars have been like if Luke and Leia were swapped at birth?

    My Experience Watching the 'Star Wars Holiday Special'

    Let me tell you something about Star Wars fans: we rarely agree. I mean, we've agreed that A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi are all great movies. But some of us like the prequels and others don't.

    The Final Word, Maybe. How 'Star Wars: Episode 9' Can Work and Tie Together the Entire Saga

    The Final Word, Maybe. How 'Star Wars: Episode 9' Can Work and Tie Together the Entire Saga

    So you detested The Last Jedi, and you signed the petition to have that ill-fated episode stricken from canon. The effort will go nowhere, and though I’m one of those fans who abjectly loved the film, I’d of course have to admit it left many of us in a teeth-gnashing uproar.
