Luke Skywalker and Grogu: Master and Apprentice

Since last December, Star Wars fans have been asking the same question, “What happens to Grogu now he’s with Luke?”, which often is followed up with “Did Kylo kill Grogu when he destroyed the Jedi Temple?” Both are fair questions (the second however is flawed as ‘The Rise of Kylo Ren’ comic series revealed thatContinue reading “Luke Skywalker and Grogu: Master and Apprentice”

Queen’s Peril by E. K. Johnston Book Review

Last year I wrote a post about how my appreciation for ‘The Phantom Menace’ grew after reading both ‘Master and Apprentice’ by Claudia Grey and ‘Queen’s Shadow’ by E. K. Johnston, which you can peruse HERE. And then ‘Queen’s Peril’ was announced, the story of how Padmé and her Handmaidens became the really strong teamContinue reading “Queen’s Peril by E. K. Johnston Book Review”

Darth Vader: Dark Heart of the Sith Part 4 Comic Review

Thank the Maker this was released this week!

Vader, Sabé, TonraContinue reading “Darth Vader: Dark Heart of the Sith Part 4 Comic Review”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Duel on Mustafar

There is something about these ‘Duel on…’ sets that I just love. The ‘Starkiller Base’ one was so well done that as soon as I heard about one based on the Anakin/Obi-Wan duel I knew it was a sure-thing for the collection. Luckily, in this early part of the year I generally don’t have toContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Duel on Mustafar”

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? We can already see the differences in the visual style ofContinue reading “What Differences Should We Expect Between the High Republic Jedi and the Jedi of the Prequel Era?”

My Pre-Prequels Head Canon

Watching the Original Trilogy in the early 90’s, there was very little information on what happened before. All we really knew was what Obi-Wan told Luke. The Jedi Knights were guardians of peace and justice. When Obi-Wan met Anakin he was already a great pilot, was strong in the Force and they were best friends.Continue reading “My Pre-Prequels Head Canon”

Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith Vol. 1 – Imperial Machine

I can’t believe that I’m about to say this. I found this book to be disappointing. I think, because I had heard so many great things about Charles Soule’s Vader series that I went in with very high expectations. Don’t get me wrong, it starts out amazingly in the first issue which is essentially VaderContinue reading “Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith Vol. 1 – Imperial Machine”

How E.K Johnston and Claudia Grey Made Me Love Phantom Menace Even More

With this year being the 20th Anniversary of the release of ‘The Phantom Menace’, it wasn’t surprising that we would get some prequel era content that tied in with the film in some way and whilst we only really got two novels they are two of the best we have had. Claudia Grey gave usContinue reading “How E.K Johnston and Claudia Grey Made Me Love Phantom Menace Even More”

Speculation: The True Cause of Padmé’s Death

“So the Emperor knows that. Instead of killing Anakin, what does he do? he seduces Anakin. To double the strength of the Dark Side. So what does the force do? It balances us. How? It gives us twins. Luke and Leia. Two and fu***ng two. Balance. And if you look at the movie through justContinue reading “Speculation: The True Cause of Padmé’s Death”

Queen’s Shadow by E.K. Johnston Review

If Claudia Grey is the Queen of Star Wars novels the E.K. Johnston is the Princess and ready for the chance to take the throne. ‘Queen’s Shadow’ is quite possibly one of the best Star Wars books written. Hands down. It’s the book we have all been waiting for, finally learning more about Padmé betweenContinue reading “Queen’s Shadow by E.K. Johnston Review”

Jedi: Fallen Order – Mission 1

As I play through the game I will be writing about each level/mission as rough guide to the storyline, so be warned there will be spoilers. The game starts on the planet Bracca. A planet where engineers have become scrappers and are dismantling old Clone Wars ships. The story is split into two parts. TheContinue reading “Jedi: Fallen Order – Mission 1”

My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – The Clone Wars: Season 3 Disc 3 Part 1

In this post I will be reviewing the ‘Mortis’ arc which consists of the episodes ‘Overlords’, ‘Altar of Mortis’ and ‘Ghosts of Mortis’. Overlords Following aContinue reading “My Star Wars (Life) Reviews – The Clone Wars: Season 3 Disc 3 Part 1”

The Tragedy of Darth Maul

Warning – Some Spoilers for ‘The Clone Wars’ and ‘Rebels’ ahead. I have harped on about that Teaser Trailer for ‘The Phantom Menace’ a lot this year (or it feels like it anyway), especially the shot of Darth Maul igniting the double blades lightsaber that ruined ‘The Mask of Zorro’ for me (well, distracted meContinue reading “The Tragedy of Darth Maul”

Darth Vader: No More Mystery

Am I the only one who thinks we are getting too much Vader content at the moment. Since Disney acquired Lucasfilm and the Canon got reset I feel like the character who had this air of mystery, not about their identity but about their actions, is slowly losing that mystery thanks to all of theContinue reading “Darth Vader: No More Mystery”

Balancing the Force 4 -The World Between Words

‘Star Wars: Rebels’ introduced us to some interesting concepts about the Force, but the most intriguing by far was the ‘World Between Worlds’, a mystical plane of existence that could connect Force Users across space and, as we eventually learned, time. Ezra first gains access to this place in the Season One Episode ‘Path ofContinue reading “Balancing the Force 4 -The World Between Words”

The Phantom Menace Novelisation by Terry Brooks Review

When this book came out I was so excited. Then I realised that I couldn’t afford it. I was literally 50p short (curse my body requiring liquid sustenance). I placated myself by buying the Illustrated Screenplay and the Junior Novelisation and they were good for a time. When I did get the book I blitzedContinue reading “The Phantom Menace Novelisation by Terry Brooks Review”

#Collection Corner – 20th Anniversary Anakin’s Podracer

I managed to complete the 20th Anniversary Star Wars Lego wave thanks to family and friends monetary contributions of Birthday cash, which was great, and after finishing ‘Slave 1’ I turned to the pile of unbuilt sets and picked up the first in the pile. Ironically, as I am currently re-reading the novelisation of ‘TheContinue reading “#Collection Corner – 20th Anniversary Anakin’s Podracer”

Master and Apprentice by Claudia Grey – Book Review

Dooku: Jedi Lost by Cavan Scott – Audiodrama Review

SPOILERS AHEAD! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! Dooku has always been an interesting character.
