The High Republic – Some Thoughts

As fans, when we get new content we inevitably have tonnes of questions on how the new stuff relates to the old stuff and relish the various connections and Easter Eggs, it’s part of the territory.

Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule Excerpt Thoughts

I generally avoid any excerpts from upcoming novels, I usually struggle to get through them because they are usually from some point into the book where the story is established and you have zero context. But, Charles Soule and IGN have dropped the opening chapter of the upcoming and sadly delayed ‘Light of the Jedi’,Continue reading “Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule Excerpt Thoughts”

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Comic Review

I was lucky enough to pick this up on Kindle Unlimited before my trial period ran out, I was hesitant at first, really because part of me was worried it would just end up being a literary advert for the Galaxy’s Edge attraction.

Me and My Padawan: Galaxy of Adventures

Over the last few weeks I have noticed an increased interest in Star Wars from my 3 year old Daughter, which has been at times, amazing and others almost stress inducing.

Why Does Anakin Die in ‘Return of the Jedi’?

On a recent re-watch of ‘Return of the Jedi’ something occurred to me about Anakin’s death.

Poe Dameron: Free Fall by Alex Segura Book Review

I really need to loosen up when it comes to YA Star Wars novels.

Solo: A Star Wars Story by Mur Lafferty Audiobook Review

Firstly, yes, it has taken me this long to get around to reading/listening to this book.

My Top Star Wars Moments 8

This scene in ‘Return of the Jedi’ is so tense. Vader searching the shadows for Luke, taunting him, trying to lure him to the Dark Side.

The way James Earl JonesContinue reading “My Top Star Wars Moments 8”

Another year, another X-Wing. It’s the fourth variation of the same ship since the first Force Friday back in 2015, which was the previous incarnation of Poe’s X-Wing (the black and orange one). When this was announced/leaked I was disappointed, the majority of the Winter 2020 Wave felt like a bunch of updates with veryContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Poe Dameron’s X-Wing Starfighter (2020)”

The Rumour Mill

The rumours coming out in the last few weeks have been almost overwhelming. And at this point I’m getting sick of hearing them.

Force Collector by Kevin Shinick Book Review

Released as a part of ‘Journey to The Rise of Skywalker’ wave of books and comics, ‘Force Collector’ doesn’t really tie into the latest film at all.

Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith Vol. 2 – Legacy’s End

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.

What Differences Should We Expect Between the High Republic Jedi and the Jedi of the Prequel Era?

Something I have been contemplating for a while, which I started thinking about more after we got the descriptions of the main ‘High Republic’ characters is what will the state of the Jedi Order be in comparison to the Order during the Prequel Era?
