A Grand Return

When I heard the news from Star Wars Celebration Europe that Grand Admiral Thrawn was making his return to the Star Wars universe, and ultimately canonized, I found myself locked in a moment of stunned silence. This was a big moment. When the stories of the Expanded Universe were declared Legend, there were many casualties,…


Rogue One Needs an Opening Crawl

Amidst all of the recent news surrounding Rogue One: A Star Wars Story there was one tidbit that caught my eye: Rogue One might not have an opening crawl. Here is what Lucasfilm President, Kathleen Kennedy had to say on the subject: “We talk about that all the time. It’s something that we’re right in…


Leaving Jakku

Jakku is a junkyard of a planet that’s home to all manner of thieves and thugs; remnants of the galaxy’s seedy underworld that have no place left to go. It is also home to Rey. Of all the things Rey accomplished in Stars Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, none was as significant as her…


Kylo Ren Unleashed

Kylo Ren is not a man to be trifled with, but is he a worthy successor to his forbear, Darth Vader? This is a question I have been pondering in my head recently. As far as villains go, Darth Vader was as big and evil as they come. A direct descendant or not, Vader is…


Happy Star Wars Day!

Star Wars fans rejoice! For today is indeed national ‘Star Wars Day’. Now I’m sure, most of you are reading this and thinking: but isn’t everyday Star Wars day? Well, yes, Star Wars should be celebrated in some fashion every day of every year, but May 4th is the day where Star Wars fans can…


Does Luke Have A Plan?

Han Solo may be my favorite character, but I’m also a fan of Luke Skywalker, and I have a hard time believing that this man who was once the new hope for the galaxy has just given up and turned his back on his family, his friends, and the Republic. No, Luke is better than…


Pilot, Fighter, Soldier, Spy?

On April 6th, Marvel Comics will release a Poe Dameron comic series. The ongoing series will pre-date Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens and chronicle the adventures of Poe and his X-Wing squadron as they take on the emerging threat of the First Order, and hunt for clues as to the whereabouts of Luke…


Star Wars on the Small Screen?

I spent the better part of February battling the flu. While I was incapacitated I binged on chicken soup with R2-D2 shaped noodles and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. via Netflix. Watching Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. got me thinking, is Star Wars ready for the little screen? The idea of a live-action Star Wars television show…


Growing Up, or Growing Old?

When we last saw Han Solo at the end of Return of the Jedi, he was a far cry from the man we first met in that wretched hive of scum and villainy, known as the Mos Eisley Cantina. He had all but given-up his selfish ways and his underworld lifestyle. The riches he failed…


The Cliffhanger

If I were Rian Johnson, then I’d invite J.J Abrams out to dinner, order a big expensive steak and then leave him with the check, as a way of saying: thanks for handing over the giant problem of how to begin Episode VIII. The Force Awakens ended with a cliffhanger, and not just metaphorically; Luke Skywalker…
