Fan Art Saturday

I forgot Fan Art Wednesday so…here we are. Today, I’m having a bit of fun by highlighting some really cool fan art featuring from my favorite characters from Rogue One. Enjoy!

This piece is so cute. The simplicity stands out as each character gets a chance to shine in their own way. It once again reiterates my love for this band of ragtag heroes who came together to try and defeat the Empire.

Adria Arjona Will Star in the ‘Cassian Andor’ Prequel Series

Oh, snap! Things are starting to happen at the House of Mouse and the Cassian Andor Disney+ series will begin filming soon. It was supposed to start filming in June but…who knows if that has even happened yet. Its cast is starting to grow though and now a new name has been added to the list.

Adria Arjona who I’ve seen star in Triple Frontier and Pacific Rim: Uprising alongside Star Wars alums, Oscar Isaac, and John Boyega, will play the lead role alongside Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor in the series, becoming the first major Latina character in Star Wars. In fact, Latina characters in Star Wars are pretty much nonexistent which makes this casting choice so exciting.

Star Wars has become more diverse over the years and I’m happy to see the Cassian Andor series continuing that trend.

Now that we’re getting a chance to see the cast begin to grow I’m keeping an eye out for the rest of the casting choices in the coming weeks or months and that’s a very exciting prospect.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day. May the Force be with you.

Throwback Friday: Which Characters Should Appear in Cassian’s Live-Action Series?

When it was announced that there was going to be a live-action series on Disney+ focusing on fan-favorite Cassian Andor I couldn’t believe it. I was and still, am so excited about this news. Cassian is my favorite Rogue One character and with this series, he can finally get the backstory that he so absolutely deserves. But there’s another exciting element to this news and that is the idea that other awesome characters can make appearances in this series. Characters we all know and love and haven’t been given enough time to shine. So, on that note, here’s a list of characters that I think could make some surprise appearances on the show.

Mon Mothma

Mon Mothma has played an important leadership role in the Rebellion for many years and as obvious from the movie she has a relationship with Cassian as his superior. I think it is inevitable to see her make an appearance or two in the series.

Darth Vader

While it’s pretty likely that Cassian and Darth Vader will most likely never cross paths there is always a slight possibility that it could potentially. Maybe on one of Cassian’s spy missions, he’ll see Vader from afar or just barely manage to avoid him. That could be very entertaining.

Which Character Has the Saddest Death in ‘Rogue One’?

For Star Wars fans we all know how the movies usually role. There may be some heartbreak every once in the blue moon but ultimately there’s a happy ending right? Rogue One changed that narrative big time.

Do you remember sitting in the movie theater for the first time in utter shock as every hero in the film was efficiently killed off in the last eighteen minutes of the movies? It was pretty remarkable. After K-2SO’s death I knew anything was possible (because a droid had never perished in the franchise before) and sure enough, well, you know the rest.

Rogue One is, in part, a devastating movie because these characters managed to worm their way into our hearts in the most delightful ways. The diverse cast of characters gave everyone someone to cheer for. For me, my favorite character was Cassian. I knew he was pretty much doomed but it was still heartbreaking when he died. In fact, I think I cried for a year straight whenever I watched this movie. So yeah, Rogue One may be one the best Star Wars film ever made but it’s also one of the saddest leading to this week’s question for Who’s Your Favorite (or in this case, Which is the Saddest?) Enjoy!
