Ahsoka Tano and Kanan Jarrus Are the Perfect Jedi, Here’s Why

I’ve been wanting to do a post highlighting Kanan Jarrus and why I think he’s the perfect Jedi but then I watched The Clone Wars the other day and I realized that he and Ahsoka are both fine examples of the perfect Jedi. And it is two distinct scenes that I think of to prove this point.

SPOILERS FOR The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels AHEAD!

My Ten Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Characters: Updated

I haven’t done this in a while because I actually haven’t cared to. I want to make a top ten Marvel heroes list but there are so many shows and movies these days it’s constantly changing (I’ll probably still write one next anyway.)

Star Wars on the other hand is a lot easier to decipher when it comes to ranking my favorite characters because there aren’t as many that I truly love. I think the last time I shared a ranking it was before The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian had come out so…this should be interesting. Enjoy!

10. Rey

There was a time when Rey was my favorite Star Wars character hands down but thanks to Abrams and Johnson’s clashing visions of the character she was dumbed down into a chosen-one type of hero with no clear inclinations as to why.

I liked Rey as a nobody, then she became a somebody, and now she’s a Skywalker. It’s draining. Plus, I love Daisy Ridley but it seemed like she was trying just a bit too hard to convey all of this emotion in Rey for the finale and ultimately just came across as a kind of annoying emotional wreck.

The only reason why I still have Rey in my top ten is because if they announced a Rey Disney+ series right now I would lose my mind so I definitely still harbor some love for the character.

9. Kylo Ren (Pre-The Rise of Skywalker)

And who surpassed Rey as my favorite character for quite a long while? Kylo Ren. It was The Last Jedi that did it as Rian Johnson fleshed out his character by making him a victim of Luke’s failure rather than just a crazed baddie. I loved the character development and was super into Kylo Ren’s story and his potential to return to being Ben Solo.

Then The Rise of Skywalker happened and suddenly he was no longer cool, he was no longer interesting, and he literally got no lines to speak as Ben Solo except for, “Ow.” What type of mess is that?

I remember leaving the movie theater after having watched The Rise of Skywalker the first time asking myself, “What did they do to my boy, Kylo?” I was furious, and still am in fact.

So, while I did love Kylo Ren a whole heck of a lot before The Rise of Skywalker it’s his story in the finale that ruined his character for me. It is only because of his role pre-The Rise of Skywalker that he’s on this list.

I’m So Close to Finishing My ‘Star Wars’ Rebels Marathon

Ever since The Mandalorian in mid-December I have been on a Star Wars television marathon consisting of The Clone Wars to Star Wars: Rebels and which will conclude with rewatching the first two seasons of The Mandalorian again.

The idea was sprung as simply a fun task to distract me from my near month-long wait for WandaVision but became something that was exciting and rewarding all at once.

Now, over two months into this mission, I have finally reached the finish line of Star Wars: Rebels. Yesterday, I cried like a baby through Jedi Night and was super inspired for the Ahsoka series thanks to the fascinating episode, World Between Worlds. Today marks the end of this journey as I watch the last two episodes of what is undoubtedly my favorite Star Wars show.

I have always heard of the love for characters like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia, but it is the Ghost crew who are my favorite core group in Star Wars. Their family dynamic is something you don’t really get in the franchise and each character is lovable in a different way.

To know that we’re finally getting that long-awaited Rebels sequel in Ahsoka is just mind-boggling and I can’t wait! And yeah, Rebels has provided me two of my top 3 favorite Jedi in Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus. I love them so much!

All in all, I’m excited to finally get to the end of this Rebels marathon and get on to The Mandalorian.

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

Throwback Friday: The Tragedy of Love in ‘Star Wars’

eI decided to take a vastly different approach by focusing on the tragic outcomes of these romantic relationships in this incredible franchise. I mean, think about it. Every love story ends badly. Don’t believe me? Well, read on.

 Cliegg Lars and Shmi Skywalker

Anakin Skywalker carries his mother

When Anakin Skywalker left Tatooine with Qui-Gon Jinn his mother Shmi was left behind. However, a man named Cliegg Lars would go on to marry her and they would have a happy life together…until Tusken Raiders captured her in the night and tortured her to death. Talk about a tragic ending. Continue reading Throwback Friday: The Tragedy of Love in ‘Star Wars’

Fan Art Wednesday

The past week has been interesting. I’ve seen a whole bunch of new movies and my sister has created some dazzling art pieces that I have been eager to share. So, with no further delay, here they are.

Jedi Knights

Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker? Um…yes! This piece brought Ahsoka to life in a realistic way, showcasing her as the bad*** we all know she is. And my sister perfectly managed to capture Anakin in this piece as well. Plus, with the stark red background that dangles between the Light and the Dark, it’s very clear these two Jedi Knights are no saints. Continue reading Fan Art Wednesday

The Five Best Lightsaber Duels: Cartoons Edition

There are some fantastic lightsaber duels in Star Wars, obviously, but you may be surprised to know that some of the best lightsaber duels are actually in the cartoons. And, with The Clone Wars returning this weekend, I thought it prudent to highlight these hidden gems found in the cartoons. Enjoy!

5. Kanan vs. The Grand Inquisitor

The first season of Star Wars: Rebels is pretty good but it’s not until this fateful duel that I began to actually understand how amazing the series could be. Kanan Jarrus believes that Ezra is dead and in an incredible moment, he faces the Grand Inquisitor with every bit of zen and belief in the power of the Force imaginable, resulting in a powerful duel that allows Kanan to grow immensely.
