This Segment of ‘The Last Jedi’ Perfectly Sums Up Leia’s Entire Journey and Her Constant Triumphs

I’ve watched The Last Jedi over twenty times now and during my latest viewing of the film one of the scenes that surprisingly struck me was in fact one of the quietest moments in the movie and that was when Leia was sitting by herself in the cruiser, Ninka. Throughout Leia’s involvement in Star Wars we haven’t seen her grieve a lot even though she has experienced so much loss. She lost nearly her entire crew aboard the ship, Tantative IV, to Darth Vader and his stormtroopers. Then she had to watch her home planet of Alderaan get obliterated before her very eyes (and her mother and father along with it.) She had to endure seeing Han Solo getting frozen in carbonite, nearly dying in the process. And then even after the Rebellion defeated the Empire the hardships she would face were far from over.

When we see Leia again thirty years after the end of the Imperial war the struggles that she has faced can be plainly seen on her face. From the political obstacles she had to face during the creation and rise of the New Republic to the new war that was on the brink of the horizon with the meager Resistance against the mighty First Order. There’s also the more personal losses she has had to deal with as well along the way with the sudden and total absence of her beloved brother, Luke Skywalker, the agony of knowing that her very son, Ben Solo, was a First Order leader and dark side fanatic, and the depressing separation between her and the man she loves in Han Solo.

Leia has not had an easy life, in fact she’s had if not the hardest, one of the toughest journeys in Star Wars and this is really apparent in The Last Jedi.

My Top Ten Favorite Marvel Female Characters: Updated

Marvel has a lot of characters and all of them have their own charm. To write these sort of ranking lists pertaining to the MCU is so much harder for me than something like Star Wars because I love so many of the characters but for now, I’ll give it a go. Enjoy!

WandaVision' Broke the MCU's Reality and It Was Very On-Brand

Agnes a.k.a Agatha Harkness was an instant favorite of mine when she waltzed into Wanda’s life in the first episode of WandaVision and as the series continued and the mystery only deepened she only became more and more fascinating.

By the end, when she revealed herself to be a witch by the name of Agatha Harkness I just really, really enjoyed the character. I’m so relieved that they decided not to kill her off because I want to see her again in the future.

My Ten Favorite Animated Disney Movies

Disney movies are the best! They’re bright and colorful, beautifully animated, filled with the finest and most inspiring characters, and just really good. I’ve been watching a lot of Disney movies lately and yeah, I decided to do an updated ranking of my ten favorite Disney movies. Enjoy!

(This list focuses on Disney movies, not Disney/Pixar movies. There is a difference, lol.)

10. Beauty and the Beast

My first viewing of Beauty and the Beast was the live-action version and while I personally like that version the most, the animated classic is a classic for a reason.

The Beast is more expressive thanks to the animation and there’s real heart to this film. Plus, it makes me cry at the end. The live-action version does not.

A Final Special ‘WandaVision’ Fan Art Sunday

WandaVision is over but that doesn’t mean I can’t share some incredible fan art inspired by the show’s various episodes. Enjoy!

Powerful! We may not have gotten a chance to see Monica Rambeau really use her new powers but this scene was very awesome.

The vision…

“It’s your destiny to destroy the world.” This sounds so amazing! I love a good hero-turns-to-the-dark-side story and Wanda is as dark as they come. Her journey has been forged by tragedy. By the time of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness it’s very clear that we will be moving even closer to the realization of Agatha’s haunting words and I can’t wait.

The artist is Uzuri Art.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

‘WandaVision’ Has Blown Me Away This Week!

I’m stunned. I’m literally baffled by how incredible this latest episode was. The episode, from the get-go, didn’t let down and as revelation after revelation was revealed I just got more and more overwhelmed.

This isn’t even the finale and it felt so powerful! Wanda is incredible. I mean, the things we discover. The theories that were busted in an instant. It was just all so informative in such a thorough way.

This just may be the greatest origin story I have ever seen!

I’ll have more to say tomorrow but for now, I’m about to watch this episode again.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
