Poe Dameron or Finn: Who’s Your Favorite?

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.

Revisiting the Photos for ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

I’m feeling kind of nostalgic so I wanted to reshare the amazing Vanity Fair photos for The Rise of Skywalker. Enjoy!

First off, here are the covers for the Vanity Fair magazine. Um, awesome!

Here we see a look at the native inhabitants of the brand new planet, Pasaana (so it’s not Jakku after all) which is exciting in itself. These clothes, these outfits, it’s beautiful. I have a feeling this film is going to be visually captivating. Continue reading Revisiting the Photos for ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

A New Stormtrooper Has Been Revealed for ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

The Rise of Skywalker is arriving in less than a year and LucasFilm is moving full speed ahead in beginning marketing for this imminently incredible Skywalker saga finale. It’s been rumored for months now that a new stormtrooper would be making its debut in this film and now that stormtrooper has finally arrived for us to look at in full detail.

Mind you, the photos surrounding this stormtrooper is through marketing for the film rather than in motion in the actual movie but it’s still a chance to see this new First Order soldier. EXCITING!

Before I show you what it looks like this is what it’s called: the Sith Trooper. Continue reading A New Stormtrooper Has Been Revealed for ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

Here’s a Fascinating Twist on ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Vanity Fair Covers

The end of May was a pretty exciting time for Star Wars fans as Vanity Fair released a tantalizing issue focusing on the highly-anticipated Skywalker saga finale. We got our first look at new characters featured in this upcoming Star Wars movie, new aliens and planets, and an idea of what to expect from the film.

My sister and I were clearly ecstatic about the issue but, as always, my sister takes her excitement and converts that joy into some truly fascinating art and that’s what she did these covers. Here they are.

Wow, wow, wow. My sister loves drawing manga and seeing this incredible cover drawn in this style is just…mesmerizing. I cannot stop staring at the cape with its soft folds and deep shadows. And the hair! AMAZING! Continue reading Here’s a Fascinating Twist on ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Vanity Fair Covers

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ May Have the Greatest Lightsaber Duel in ‘Star Wars’ History

We’re less than half a year away from seeing the conclusive Skywalker saga finale, The Rise of Skywalker, and much about the film is being kept top secret. But information is gradually being shared about the highly-anticipated Star Wars film and now Daisy Ridley is adding to the meager amount of official info that we have of the film so far.

In a recent interview, she spoke about that epic lightsaber duel that was teased in the special Vanity Fair issue for The Rise of Skywalker. Here’s what she had to say about the matter.

“We have a great fight. A great fight. And I was really happy that the Vanity Fair pictures did show a bit of it. It’s a great fight. Like I’ve become such a better fighter and they made the lightsabers lighter, so it actually looks like we’re swinging light and not like heavy, heavy swords. This fight, we did, it was November, we had water being thrown at us, and I got a great deal of respect because I did not, I was ‘I’m not gonna complain about the cold, I’m just not gonna do it (laughs)—so it was like a real thing of stamina. It feels really epic, and it felt epic even at the time. Imagine, we had the waves like this, and they’re gonna make the waves bigger, and one can only imagine what it’s gonna look like.”

Um…

*jaw drop*

I’m already excited about the movie! Gosh, Daisy Ridley, don’t make me even more excited with so many months left to wait for the film.

She was also asked about the tone of the movie compared to The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi and this is what she had to say about that as well.

“Genre-wise, it’s different from the other two, which will become clear when the film comes out. It’s quite emotional. There’s a different drive than the previous two films, but there’s a lot of fun. I really missed John (Boyega) during the last one, but we’re back together and now Oscar (Isaac) is part of it. To me, it felt like kids going on an adventure.”

And, of course, she was asked the inevitable question about her mysterious parentage again in which she answered: “(Director J.J. Abrams) did say the question is answered. So, at the end of the film, you do know what the deal is.”

While a bit of news for The Rise of Skywalker is far and few these days it is nice to hear the actors speaking so fondly about this conclusion. I can’t wait to see what J.J Abrams has in store for us.

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