Ahsoka’s Odyssey: The ambiguous fate of Ahsoka analyzed

THRAWN!
Sorry, I have what can only be described as Thrawn Tourettes after that Rebels season 3 trailer. Alas that is not quite what I have to discuss today.
First off, I won’t be so bold as to say that I’ve solved the mystery of Ahsoka and am now going to blow your mind. I mean, I still might blow your mind but I won’t count my mynocks before they hatch. Did that metaphor work? Do mynocks even come from eggs? Anyway, this isn’t your usual clickbait Star Wars theory and analysis reading way too much into little details and coming up with wild conjectures based on nothing. No no, this is all based on connecting the dots. After watching the panel from Celebration discussing Ahsoka’s untold tales something clicked in my mind and while I can’t say that I’ve figured it all out I will say this much… I definitely think I’m onto something.

The History of Anakin Skywalker`s lightsaber

All the way back in 1977, was the first time we ever set our eyes on the galaxy’s most famous weapon. Obi-Wan Kenobi handed Luke Skywalker his father’s blue-bladed  jedi lightsaber. Obi-Wan tells Luke that a lightsaber is a “more elegant weapon for a more civilized age.”

The Phantom Menace Novelization Review

n4722

The first 2 chapters are all about Anakin Skywalker as a young slave boy on Tattooine.  These scenes could have really helped the film establish Anakin as the main character in this movie. In the 1st chapter, he wrecks Watto`s pod racer that he references later when he meets Qui-Gon and crew. In the second chapter, Anakin and his friends Kitster and Wald go to a place to get some kind of drink and meet an old Republic pilot who says that he saw Anakin driving his pod racer and was impressed. Anakin saw his first tusken raider ever just before we meet him in episode 1. He went to trade with jawas for Watto and found an unconscious tusken raider on a hill, and he tried to help him survive. The resolution of what happened with the Tusken Raider is never revealed, but it is a nice contrast with what Anakin did to the Tusken Raiders in Attack of the Clones. Continue reading

Connor Norton: A Star Wars Story

Our First post this week was written by Connor Norton, original post here. Check out his Star Wars Story!


 

Being born in 1995 made me like the star wars prequels  as a child more than the original trilogy.  I used to watch Star Wars mainly in the car, while me and my family were on a trip somewhere. We had a case full of ton of  DVD`s, and I almost always picked Episode 1 0r Episode 2 to watch over the others (Episode 3 hadn’t come out yet).  I would always look at the prints on the DVD`s, and think, I LOVE that movie.  For Episode 1, it was Darth Maul.

Darth Vader In Rogue One


 

Darth Vader in Rogue One. This is a statement that now seems to have a high likelihood of being true. This statement is also extremely exciting. As I have said in previous posts, Darth Vader has become extremely interesting in the time since the new canon. He has gotten material that has broadened his character in many different ways. Some of the very best that the new canon has to offer, has explored this, namely Lords of The Sith(LOTS), Tarkin, and the Darth Vader Comic series. As a result of this material, and greater explanation of Anakin’s fall in the Clone Wars, he is now the character I am most excited to be seeing on screen. Yes, even more so than Han Solo in his spin off. Below are some characteristics of Vader I would like to see. Continue reading
