Han was on the verge of beating the infamous gambler, Lando Calrissian, in a game of sabacc. The crowd surrounding the table was fraught with tenseness as everyone waited to see what Han’s hand consisted of. Qi’ra looked on with wide eyes, her heart beating quickly in her breast.
Was Han going to do it? Was he really going to win and obtain Lando’s ship in the process? She clenched her hand tightly, her fingernails digging into her palm. If he did indeed win she would be beyond impressed.
Han smiled. “Straight staves,” he said as he revealed his cards. Continue reading If Only She Could Tell the Truth: Part 7
Qi’ra went to find a better vantage point so she could watch Han gamble his way into a brilliant win or an expected fail. When she found her spot she leaned against the column beside her.
Chewbacca leaned on the other side of the same column and grunted.
“I know this probably isn’t a good idea, Chewbacca,” she said. “But I’ve seen Han do some amazing things playing sabacc.”
He grunted again.
She smiled at the Wookie. “Just trust me.”
He growled and shrugged before turning his attention to the game. Qi’ra did the same. Continue reading If Only She Could Tell the Truth: Part 6
You may see the title of this post and think to yourself, “What do you mean ‘What has happened to Finn’? Hasn’t he been in both trailers for The Rise of Skywalker?” Well, yes, as a matter of fact, he has. He has also been highlighted in promotional material for the movie as well. But there’s something deeper going on here. It’s what has become a slow but ultimately effective elimination of the character’s grand story for only one reason; to appease a certain portion of the Star Wars fandom and I didn’t realize how bad it was until I read this post linked here in this post from a fantastic Star Wars analysis website called swshadowcouncil.com.
To give you a taste of how things have changed for Finn over the course of the last four years here’s a simple look at the official posters for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.
Finn was very important in The Last Jedi. In fact, he had the second-highest screentime in the film only behind Rey but Leia, who had far less screen time is bigger than him and Poe Dameron, who also wasn’t in the film nearly as much like him was delegated to being the same size as him on the poster.
Finn is a MAJOR character in this story and yet LucasFilm has delegated him to almost side-character status. If these posters don’t have you convinced click the link below to read more.

You will be utterly shocked at the treatment Finn has undertaken over the years.
The question is: How will he be placed on the official poster for The Rise of Skywalker? I guess we will see in a coming couple of days.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day. May the Force be with you.
The Rise of Skywalker is drawing ever closer with each passing day and with a new trailer on the horizon, Entertainment Weekly has delivered a tease for the film to only bolster our excitement.
Here’s the Entertainment Weekly photo that came out this week.
It’s a photo of one of the newest characters to join the franchise, an old friend of Poe Dameron’s named Zorri Bliss. Apparently, the heroes will locate her on a new planet named Kijimi where she seems to hold a tidbit of information that they will need in their secret scavenger hunt.
What I’m garnering from this photo is its nostalgic Attack of the Clones vibe. Maybe it’s her helmet or maybe it’s the cinematography. Whatever the case, I’m liking this picture a lot.

For both The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, we weren’t given trailers in August to enjoy, making the marketing for The Rise of Skywalker a touch bit different than last time as we were given new footage with the D23 Special Look. In case, you’ve forgotten how awesome it was let this remind you.
While this new footage was expectedly cryptic it still felt like we were seeing way more than we ought to know with Dark Rey appearing at the end to blow the Star Wars fandom’s socks off.
The new footage was so interesting in fact that I almost feel like I don’t want an official second trailer in October, lest we learn even more juicy details about the film. But that’s the thing. With the first teaser revealing Palpatine via his iconic cackle and the second trailer highlighting a potential Evil Rey what can the next trailer possibly show us to top that? Kylo Ren with a green lightsaber fighting Palpatine?!
Like I said before, I almost wish we didn’t have to see another trailer because I’m already beyond excited to see the movie but another trailer we will get regardless. So, what can this next trailer provide us that we haven’t already been given? Well, for this week’s Throwback Friday, I’m here to share a few ideas that could make the second The Rise of Skywalker trailer an utter blast to watch.
