When The Force Awakens arrived J.J Abrams had one thing in mind; make iconic characters as lovable as the Original Trilogy characters. Rey, Finn, and Commander Poe Dameron were born from this goal and we did fall in love with these heroes who were doing whatever they could to stop the forces of evil. Now, nearly four years later, the finale to their story is fast approaching and Finn and Poe are at the helm of this Skywalker saga finale.
They have become more than determined allies, they have become best friends and I can’t wait to see this friendship evolve throughout The Rise of Skywalker. So, I thought it would be great to have them be the topic of this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? On that note, let’s take a closer look at their journeys so far.

When George Lucas created Star Wars he was making a fantasy epic for children and it just so happened to be one of the greatest movies ever made that resonated with people of all ages. As the years have gone by some of the Star Wars films have continued to cater mostly towards the younger people of the world while some of the franchise’s installments have been a little more frightening than others.
Today I’m listing the five kid-friendliest Star Wars movies. Enjoy! 🙂
5. Attack of the Clones
Attack of the Clones definitely isn’t a dark film and easily one of the most kid-friendly in the Star Wars franchise. (Take it from me. My sister and I used to watch this movie every day as children.) The only thing that could provide caution for younger children are the scenes with Anakin and Padme gallivanting around Naboo and pledging secret love to each other on the planet of Geonosis. Besides that though there isn’t anything scarier in this movie than Anakin talking about sand. Actually, that’s pretty scary. (Lol.) Continue reading The Five Kid-Friendliest ‘Star Wars’ Movies
Today reaches the conclusion of my three-part review for Before the Awakening, a book focusing on the sequel trilogy’s three most important heroes; Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron months, years, and days before The Force Awakens. Because each story was so fantastic I had to break this review up to give an adequate analysis of each section and unfortunately, the final part was the most boring.
Of course, you must be wondering why and that is why it is my job to inform you why I’m having these emotions when for the past two days I have written nothing but praise for the book.
The answer is simple; it was boring.

Yesterday in the first part of this review I shared with you how I felt about Finn’s section of the story. Finn is easily one of my favorite Star Wars characters and it was nice to discover yet another fascinating layer to his story. The second section focused on Rey and, well, it was just as mesmerizing.
Rey’s story has always been inspiring as she went from being a lowly scavenger to becoming a Jedi/the-new-hope of the galaxy. But her years on Jakku are ultimately what fashioned into the incredible hero that she is in the films and this story only delved into the importance of that fact.

Whenever I get a chance to go to my local library I love to find whichever Star Wars novels I haven’t read yet and yesterday I found a book I’ve been waiting to read since 2016; Before the Awakening. It follows the stories of Finn, Rey, and Poe shortly before The Force Awakens and each story is so fascinating that I decided to write this review in three parts. So, because the story started with Finn, here’s my review of his section of the story.
(This review will have SLIGHT SPOILERS.)
Finn, the Stormtrooper
We all know of Finn’s story after he betrayed the First Order and joined his newfound friends Rey and Poe in an adventure of a lifetime. What we aren’t as knowledgable about, however, is his life before he gave up the First Order insignia for good.
I always felt that it would be somewhat boring learning of his days as a sanitation worker/burgeoning stormtrooper. Oh, how wrong I was. Before the Awakening doesn’t focus on his duties cleaning floors and…bathrooms *shudder* but rather his time as simply a stormtrooper training for the impending battle.
