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.

Star Wars is a wonderful franchise that has captured the hearts of millions of fans around the world and part of the reason why is because of the characters. Without those incredible heroes like Luke and Rey or the memorable villains, Darth Vader and Kylo Ren, these movies wouldn’t be half as entertaining as they are now.
Throughout the years there have been incredible character duos in Star Wars that have made the movies so much more fun to watch and today they are part of my weekly segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Here are all of the Star Wars duos (this is solely based on the movies.)
Finn and Rey
Finn and Rey have had quite the journey through the trilogy so far. In fact, their individual journeys ended up leading them apart for the majority of The Last Jedi. But when they are together it’s like a match made in heaven.
Before we were reacquainted with Han Solo and Chewbacca in The Force Awakens we were following the stories of youngsters Finn and Rey and they were so immediately lovable I didn’t even miss the Star Wars veterans. Their friendship is part of the reason why I love The Force Awakens so much and I can’t wait to see them have more time together in Episode IX.

Every once in a while my sister draws something that blows my mind. Whether it’s the creativity, the ultra cuteness, or the sheer beauty of her pieces they always manage to blow me away. Recently my sister created six caricatures for six Star Wars characters from the Sequel Trilogy and I had to share them with you. Enjoy!
Rey is so cute. Rey is often shown as such a serious character but in this picture, my sister provided levity to her caricature that reveals her benevolence as well as the silent but present joy she displays at times in the films. Continue reading Here are Six Caricatures I Just Can’t Get Enough Of
The new trailer for The Rise of Skywalker is almost upon us. Like with all new movies, there’s a time when we don’t know what’s going to happen in the film or what to expect. And then, months after seeing the movie for the first time, we get the chance to watch it over and over again and the memories of mystery surrounding the film are gone.
Here’s a look back at a post I wrote after just buying The Last Jedi on Blu-Ray early last year. Enjoy!
Okay, so I’ve just recently owned The Last Jedi and after seeing the movie eight times now I am more blown away by the film than I was after I went to see it in the movie theaters all those months ago. The story is impeccably designed, the character development is riveting, the cinematography is beautiful, the action is phenomenal, and overall it’s undoubtedly, to me, the best Star Wars movie ever made. It even surpasses the genius of The Empire Strikes Back which is now boring in comparison.
(Present day: Too bad this elation dissipated. Rogue One has returned to being my favorite Star Wars film and The Empire Strikes Back has reclaimed its title as my 2nd favorite film in the franchise. I now have The Last Jedi sitting in 4th place just behind The Force Awakens, which is still pretty good.)
The only setback of this movie’s entertaining quality is the difficulty I’m going to have a hard time discerning my five favorite scenes from the movie because there are so many fantastic scenes it feels unfair to leave some parts out but I’m going to try my best.
