What’s Your Favorite Leia Moment?

It’s another Sunday and that means it’s time to visit another segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Today, however, is rather special for Star Wars fans around the world because it is the late-great Carrie Fisher’s birthday (she would’ve been 62.) So, to honor the woman who has brought so many smiles to people across the globe, she is the subject of today’s Who’s Your Favorite?

Now, Leia has countless memorable moments during her time in this franchise but I’m going to take at least one exciting moment from each film that she’s graced for this list. Enjoy!

1. A Rogue One Surprise

Rogue One brought some fantastic surprises near the end of the film as it swiftly led into A New Hope‘s story and one of those shocking reveals was CGI Leia. Not only was it brilliant but it proved that technology could be used in truly exciting ways for future Star Wars films.

Who’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Dad?

Star Wars is heavily wrapped around the basis of family and it’s Father’s Day! So, I’m asking you my fellow Star Wars fans, who’s your favorite Star Wars father? Here is my list of the galactic dads of the franchise.

Galen Erso

Galen Erso

Galen Erso is one of the secret heroes in the Star Wars universe as he purposely sabotaged the Death Star to eventually get blown up. He risked his life creating the diabolical plan and had to sacrifice so much to get it done. While he isn’t on the poster of Rogue One he was easily one of the film’s biggest contributors.

Darth Vader

Darth Vader just might be one of the most iconic movie fathers of all time. He may have played the part of the villain for the majority of the original trilogy but through all of those wires and that cold exterior was a heart of gold that couldn’t be denied. He helped end the reign of the Empire as he killed Palpatine and even though he died he perished doing what was right and that is why he’s such a great character.

The Phantom Menace

With the classic drawn-look of the prequel trilogy posters we get to see all of the main characters of this story with young Anakin standing front and center and Darth Maul lingering in the background as a menacing (get it😉) presence. Continue reading “What’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Poster?”

What’s Your Favorite Princess Leia Look?

Star Wars. It’s a story that resides in a galaxy far, far away, where powerful men and women dressed in iconic robes and wielding different colored laser swords have mysterious powers and follow their tales of destiny while fighting an endless battle between good and evil. There’s a lot to this incredible story that has spanned decades and wowed generations of fans and one of the elements to this franchise that is so much fun to explore is the characters’ individual styles.

Each and every character has a specific style that is created with such fine detail and so for the next couple of weeks, my Who’s Your Favorite? series will be brought to you every day and targeting a specific character and their overall style through their time in the franchise. And who better to start this series than with one of the most iconically dressed fictional characters, Princess Leia?

Who’s Your Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Band?

Wow, this week has gone by fast and that only means it’s time for another segment of Who’s Your Favorite? And this week it’s a fun topic in the form of Star Wars bands. Star Wars bands aren’t popular to a casual Star Wars viewer but to us fans the bands are some of the coolest characters to appear in the franchise. They provide galactic beats that are either hilarious, iconic, or downright cool. And that’s why I’m here to ask which Star Wars bands happens to be your favorite? Here they are.

What’s Your Favorite Scene in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’?

Solo: A Star Wars Story is a good Star Wars film with plenty of great moments. It’s a riveting adventure from beginning to end and truly captures the essence of what Star Wars films are all about. But what makes it such a fun installment to the franchise? The film’s various scenes of course. From beginning to end this movie deals out incredible moments that will bring a smile to any casual Star Wars movie watcher’s face. So, on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite, I’m asking you what your favorite scene in Solo is? Here are the film’s most important moments.

The Speeder Chase on Corellia

The film doesn’t waste time getting to the action and the speeder chase that takes place as Han and Qi’ra strive to escape Corellia is beyond awesome. It features Han’s incredible piloting skills before he got his hands behind the controls of a ship complemented with an upbeat musical score that made the scene even more riveting.

‘Solo’ or ‘Rogue One’: Which Movie Is Your Favorite?

When Disney acquired the rights to LucasFilm they came equipped with many ideas. One of those ideas was the never-before-seen Star Wars stories; standalone films that focused on certain characters or important events in the galaxy. There have only been two of these standalone films so far and there may never be more after Solo‘s dismal box-office run, which is a shame because these movies are so enjoyable. Both are completely different and unique in their own way and that’s why they’re a part of this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? Enjoy!

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo follows Han’s journey in his young adult years as he learns the dangerous ways of a smuggler in the galaxy. He meets interesting people, learns valuable lessons, and gains a best friend who would always be there for him in Chewbacca.

We get to see Han’s first moments with the Millennium Falcon, his infamous Kessel Run, and how he won the Falcon from Lando Calrissian. But most importantly, we got to learn the reason why Han is such a hero as his heroism was on full display in this film.

We even got to see Darth Maul again! And that’s pretty awesome.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One is an entirely different movie than Solo. It follows the story of a group of unlikely heroes who, with their determination, create a plan to steal the Death Star plans from underneath the Empire’s noses. This plan turns into an all-out war between the Empire and the Rebellion, with Jyn Erso at the helm of this uprising.

This film contains some very exciting moments like the entire battle on and above Scarif, Darth Vader’s return, Grand Moff Tarkin’s presence, and even a fantastic cameo by Princess Leia.

Between these two films, my favorite is clearly Rogue One. Time and time again I watch Rogue One and it always manages to bring a smile to my face while I can barely watch Solo anymore. Of course, that’s just me. The question is; which movie is your favorite?

I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fabulous day. May the Force be with you.
