After finishing up the first season of the Mandalorian on Disney Plus this week, I was thoroughly satisfied with how this new character opened up the Star Wars franchise to new adventures.Continue reading “What is satisfying about The Mandalorian? | Season 1 Review”
It was impossible to get to the theater before every person I knew began talking about this movie. Some people had negative opinions, other people enjoyed it. But, I reserved judgment until I watched it for myself.Continue reading “The truth about Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker (review)”
The first series released on the Disney+ stream, The Mandalorian, proved to be a treat for Star Wars fans. Before I was able to see the first episode for myself, I heard a lot of good things about the shows practical and visual effects.Continue reading “The Mandalorian (2019) based on two epsiodes”
When EA and Respawn Entertainment released the teaser image for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I wrote an opinion piece that said a lot of things that came from a wounded place.
Having played Star Wars Battlefront 1 and 2, I was worried that pay walls would diffuse any fun from the game. On Saturday, more information was released regarding this game. The information dump seemingly answered all of my reservations.

In the recent information update, Respawn Entertainment revealed the most important thing … there will be no micro transactions.
Wow, I did not see that coming.
So that’s good news! Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be a single player experience will no multiplayer mode or pay walls. I’ve embedded the trailer below in case you haven’t seen it.
There were no real secrets exposed in the trailer at the beginning. We saw Princess Leia hugging a tearful Rey and shots of the crew on their adventure! The trailer is narrated by Luke Skywalker, but we don’t see him in the images.
But the biggest surprise was the laughter at the end of the trailer!
Emperor Palpatine is in this episode officially titled Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker.
After the trailer played at the Star Wars celebration, the hype continued as Ian McDiarmid showed up on stage and said, “Play it again”.
I wasn’t hype. But now, I’m hype!
Check out the trailer below. Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker comes out December 20, 2019.
Prior to the Star Wars Episode IX Panel today we found out that the Star Wars Saga will take a hiatus. Walt Disney’s CEO Bob Iger spoke with Bloomberg about shifting his focus to the newly announced Disney Plus streaming service.
Iger also dropped the bomb that the Skywalker saga in these films will come to a conclusion by the end of Episode IX due out December 20, 2019. I’m actually okay with this hiatus.
After watching the celebration stream, I’m looking forward to seeing Episode IX. All of the cast that spoke at the panel held JJ Abrams in such high regard, and I think that will shine through in the movies. Plus it’s really exciting that Billie Dee Williams will reprise he role as Lando Calrissian and Ian McDiarmid will bring back unlimited power as Emperor Palpatine as well!
It was nice to have a resurgence of the Star Wars franchise and meet knew characters. As much as it may hurt to let the Skywalkers go, perhaps new stories along the lines of Rogue One are best for the future of the Star Wars Franchise. I’m not suggesting a load of prequels, but stories being told from other perspectives and brand new character introductions as leads without nostalgia characters to boost the story.
Even though I screamed very loud when I heard Emperor Palpatine laugh at the end of the trailer. I also gasped when Ian McDiarmid showed up on the stage after the initial tearser to say, “Play it again”.
I’m a fan.
