My sister and I love Star Wars, as you can probably tell, and we’re both very excited for The Mandalorian and The Rise of Skywalker. My sister, being an artist, gets to celebrate this franchise in exciting ways through art and recently she’s begun to take certain characters and make comic strips for them. And because they’re awesome I wanted to share them. Enjoy!
I can’t get enough of this comic. The colors, the gleam on the helmet, the way his cape flows in the wind, this comic screams awesomeness, as does this character. Continue reading Here are Two Comic Strips To Have You Pumped for ‘Star Wars’
Star Wars: Rebels is filled with fantastic episodes that have delivered some rather incredible moments. Moments that I’ve just seen due to my recent introduction to Star Wars: Rebels. Moments of which I will never forget. I could easily list my ten favorite episodes from the series so far but I thought it would be more fun to see which episodes rank supreme in the collective viewers’ eyes. So, on that note, here are the top ten episodes of Star Wars: Rebels according to IMDb.
10. Season 3. Episode 14: “Trial of the Darksaber”-9/10
Many of the characters were given extra depth to their storyline with episodes that centered around their personal obstacles but Sabine Wren was always just there…until this episode. Suddenly, we delve into her personal backstory and we soon discover the tragedy that has struck her own life. Gone is the mystery surrounding her character and suddenly she is given that much more meaning in the story.
It was a fascinating approach to her character and indeed one of the best episodes in the series. Plus, the Darksaber lore was pretty fascinating too. Continue reading What Are the Top Ten ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ Episodes According to IMDb?
Danger in the Force
Ora felt a tremor in the Force. It was subtle. Almost entirely insignificant. But it was there.
It cut through her like a knife, warning her of something. A terrible danger awaited her. That much was obvious. But there was something else and she couldn’t quite place it.
Sometimes the Force frustrated Ora. Rey taught her to be mindful of the Force. To listen to its beckoning and whispers of truth. To feel the Force around her, through her, and in her. But at times like these, when the Force was speaking to her in ways she couldn’t comprehend, she wanted to fight back and take action instead of being mindful.
And then she felt it. Like a blow to the chest. There was a desperate call for help followed by a terrible scream. Her eyes widened. Continue reading Episode X: The Reckoning: Chapter Five
The first four episodes of The Mandalorian have told a greater (and more cohesive) story than the Sequel Trilogy has offered so far. The first three episodes were action galore, with a surprising amount of heart woven into the mix. Chapter Four resets the story, showing The Mandalorian at his most docile yet. But don’t let the lack of jaw-dropping moments convince you that the seriousness of this series has died down because it hasn’t. Not at all. In fact, if anything, the conclusion of the series’ fourth episode only reiterates how serious the situation is for The Mandalorian. A situation that I will elaborate further upon in my spoiler review this Monday.
There was a lot to enjoy about the fourth episode of The Mandalorian. We were finally introduced to Gina Carano’s character, a fierce ex-rebel shock trooper named Cara Dune who has a mean punch. Was her debut as fantastic as I would’ve first imagined? I have to admit, I’m a bit underwhelmed. Not to say that she wasn’t cool but her inclusion in the series felt the least natural of the major characters presented in the story so far. But the series has already hinted at the idea that we will see her again, later down the road, and with her and The Mandalorian making such a good team, it’s definitely an exciting prospect.
However, don’t let this give you the impression that I didn’t like this episode because I clearly loved it. Baby Yoda is still super cute and The Mandalorian is still cooler than ever. Chapter Four only builds upon The Mandalorian’s good-natured character and yes, it finally answers the question of whether he takes his mask off or not in a very effective way. 😉
All in all, while Episode Three is still my favorite of the series so far, Chapter Four definitely is keeping the ball rolling.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.
The Last Jedi was about as unconventional a Star Wars movie as you can get. Yes, it had lightsabers and Jedi, space battles and conversations of the Force, but Rian Johnson changed a lot about the way we view these movies. He took a more ethical approach to the entire story of Star Wars which led to a complex but satisfying sequel rather than just creating a fun action movie. One of those striking elements of the movie that he made his own happened to be the very first scene in The Last Jedi; the space battle.
Space battles have always been a huge staple of Star Wars. In fact, the first scene ever to appear in a Star Wars film involved a space battle! That’s how important they are. Every Star Wars movie that there has been has had at least one space battle in it and The Last Jedi was thankfully not an exception…but Rian Johnson made sure to put his own spin on it.

(Warning: The Mandalorian spoilers below!)
Star Wars is such a compelling universe because of the characters and cultures that you find within it.
One such culture that has been finding more attention lately revolves around the Mandalorians, thanks to The Mandalorian show on Disney Plus. On this show we’ve been introduced to their phrase, “This is the way”; their discipline, weaponry, and their will to be honorable whenever they can.
And as I was watching these aspects transpire on the screen, I couldn’t help but notice the similarities between the Mandalorians and Samurai. Continue reading My Sister’s Opinion: The Mandalorians Are Similar to the Samurai
