Why Does Bo Katan Want to Rule Mandalore?

I’ve been doing some contemplating on Bo Katan Kryze this week (I rewatched ‘The Rescue’) and I’ve been wondering quite a bit about her reasoning behind her, almost desperation to retake Mandalore. In ‘The Rescue’, we learn a few things in regards to Mandalore, firstly, Boba Fett claims that “The Empire turned the planet toContinue reading “Why Does Bo Katan Want to Rule Mandalore?”

Star Wars: Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn Book Review

I can’t imagine the excitement for fans in 1991 when this book was released after eight years since ‘Return of the Jedi’ has been released. Of course there had been new content, the two Ewoks films as well as the Droids and Ewoks cartoons, but this was the first story that continued the heroes adventures.Continue reading “Star Wars: Heir to the Empire by Timothy Zahn Book Review”

Balancing the Force 6 – The World Between Worlds Part 2

WARNING!!! SPOILERS FOR ‘STAR WARS REBELS SEASON 4’! Thanks to Kyle, Marie and Nathan on the latest episode of the ‘Tumbling Sabers’ Podcast (listen HERE), my brain has been going over one particular concept that they discussed in regards to The World Between Worlds, which I wrote about in a previous post, Balancing the ForceContinue reading “Balancing the Force 6 – The World Between Worlds Part 2”

#CollectionCorner – Imperial Troop Transport Lego Battle Pack

This was one of those sets that I missed out on as I started collecting Lego again. Based on the vehicle from ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ which in turn is based on an original concept that Kenner produced in the 70’s and 80’s as part of a set of smaller vehicles. It also recently made it’sContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Imperial Troop Transport Lego Battle Pack”

Doctor Aphra Vol. 4 – The Catastrophe Con

I am really enjoying this series, it’s quickly becoming my favourite of all the Star Wars comics from Marvel right now. The character of Aphra is one of my favourite original characters from the new expanded materials. I am so pleased that I made the decision to go back and read the whole of herContinue reading “Doctor Aphra Vol. 4 – The Catastrophe Con”

#CollectionCorner – The Black Series Expansion

As followers of the Blog will know, I am a big collector of Star Wars Lego and Funko POP! Figures, and for a time that was enough.

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. Lets go back a few weeks when the news was suddenly dropped that Rosario Dawson was playing Ahsoka in ‘The Mandalorian’ Season Two and the internet exploded, and rightfully so. Dawson hasContinue reading “The Rumour Mill”

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”

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”

#CollectionCorner – Where Are the ‘Resistance’ Toys?

After one season of ‘Star Wars: Resistance’, that has grown a huge and dedicated fan base but the merchandise is severely lacking, especially here in the UK.

Speculation: The Future of Evil in the Galaxy

“Sources close to the movie say that Skywalker will at long last bring to a climax the millennia-long conflict between the Jedi Order and its dark shadow, the Sith.” Lev Grossman Vanity Fair Lets just take a moment to take those words in… The climax of the millennia-long conflict between the Jedi and the Sith. The SithContinue reading “Speculation: The Future of Evil in the Galaxy”

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”

Dave Filoni: Animator. Director. Saviour.

‘The Clone Wars’ film was released in cinemas and a name appeared on screen, that when I first saw the film I shrugged it off, Dave Filoni? Who is Dave Filoni? Now, almost eleven years later, that name is almost as synonymous with Star Wars as George Lucas. Dave Filoni is the man behind someContinue reading “Dave Filoni: Animator. Director. Saviour.”
