Ahsoka’s Odyssey: The ambiguous fate of Ahsoka analyzed

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.

Favorite Moments from The Force Awakens


(spoiler warning) How do you pick a favorite scene in this film? There was so much to love. I think what makes it difficult for me as well is that many of my favorite parts weren’t full out scenes but just moments. Continue reading

The Call of The Light: An Essay on Kylo Ren


So, coming away from the Force Awakens, I have to say that the character that stood out the most was Kylo Ren. Even though the other characters were quite interesting and funny, something about him really caught me. After thinking about it, I think that what I find interesting is his raw power, but yet his insecurity and torment. While, for the other characters such as Rey and Fin it may be a heroes journey, I think that for Kylo it is a full on struggle between the dark and the light. And for me, that is the very fabric of Star Wars. Below, I am going to explore some of the things I think are most interesting about this character.
