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.

This is hilarious! Looking back at this post that I wrote last April about Captain Phasma playing a role in The Rise of Skywalker is actually really funny. At the time, I was so heartbroken that Captain Phasma, one of the coolest characters to appear in this franchise, was gone that I refused to believe the obvious fact. Now, seventeen months later, looking back at this post is actually quite the comic relief. So, for this week’s Throwback Friday, here’s a look back at why I was so certain that Captain Phasma would play a role in The Rise of Skywalker. Enjoy!
The Force Awakens introduced some exciting new characters to the Star Wars universe and one of those incredible new additions was Captain Phasma. I remember seeing some concept art for The Force Awakens in the early months of 2014 and one of the most interesting pieces of art was the one that highlighted Phasma in concept form. It was literally one of the coolest things I had ever seen. Then, when I found out that this incredible new stormtrooper was a woman I was like, “WHAAAT!” She was so awesome!!! And then I watched The Force Awakens and I was like, “Huh?” There was so much hype surrounding that character and she ended up playing a ridiculously minor role that quite possibly didn’t need to be in the movie. She was simply eye candy for the film and a chance for Disney to say they introduced the first female villain to a Star Wars movie.

For this final segment of What’s Your Favorite Look? I’m finishing it off with Padme’s designs in Revenge of the Sith. Now, because I have extended the What’s Your Favorite? topic for nearly two weeks there will not be a Who’s Your Favorite? topic this Sunday but all will return to normal next Sunday.
So, on that note, here are her dazzling looks from Revenge of the Sith. Enjoy!
The Mother-To-Be Outfit
When Padme was first introduced in Revenge of the Sith she wears this fascinating velvet cloak to hide her form to prevent anyone from noticing her pregnancy. She also wears her hair in cinnamon buns as yet another homage to Leia, the daughter she would bear in a few months. Continue reading What’s Your Favorite Padme Look: Part 3?
Yesterday I shared a list of all of Padme’s looks from The Phantom Menace. Today, we look at her prettiest wardrobe yet from Attack of the Clones. Enjoy!
Padme knew she was hated by the Trade Federation and that they would one day try to enact their revenge. It’s why, even as a senator, she had to travel with such caution. So, at the beginning of Attack of the Clones, we see Padme dressed as a pilot to remain undercover and yet even in a piloting outfit she manages to look stylish.
I mean, look at that belt! Stylish. Continue reading What’s Your Favorite Padme Look: Part 2?
For The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, a second trailer was always released in October two months ahead of its release as pre-order tickets were made available to buy. Well, October is fast approaching and I’m predicting in exactly three weeks during Monday Night Football on October 7 we will get the highly-anticipated official trailer for The Rise of Skywalker.
It’ll be the Cleveland Browns vs. San Francisco 49ers and my heart will be in my stomach. Just the thought is giving me butterflies.
And in case you need to get even more pumped up, here’s another look at the teaser poster.
Do you feel also feel a tremor in the Force about the new The Rise of Skywalker trailer? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a splendid day. May the Force be with you, always.
