Or “A New Hope: Why the High Republic isn’t the Old Republic, but that is Alright Probably. And Star Wars discourse is incredibly annoying.”
Love it or hate it, The Rise of Skywalker is a movie.
Dying is easy. Comebacks are hard. And modern public relations are weird.
There was a short rumor period surrounding this set before it was officially revealed by Lego this week. Weighing in at 1,060 pieces (a respectable $0.12 per piece), Darth Vader’s Castle is now available for preorder exclusively through Amazon and Lego stores. The importance of this castle is being expanded upon as we speak through comics, novels, and video games since the lair’s first appearance in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And there’s a lot to love in this big set. Let’s break it down and see what Castle Vader has to offer. . .
The first look at Star Wars: Resistance is here! See it all in motion and hear the characters’ voices for the first time. I’ve been saying for years that anime needs to meet Star Wars, and this looks to be a good start at bridging that gap.
It’s no secret that I love Boba Fett, and in the spirit of talking about actually enjoying Star Wars instead of nitpicking it to death, I want to talk about the possibilities for Fett’s potential spin-off film!
I’ll admit it, in the past I’ve been guilty of being a toxic person not unlike the many toxic fans polluting comment sections across the internet. I used to hate the Star Wars prequels because my friends didn’t like them. I used to treat any kind of music I didn’t identify with as worthless trash. And sure it made my friends laugh, but after a while you realize you don’t have as much in common as you first though, aside from a sour taste in your mouth.
How does something mired in so much behind-the-scenes drama turn out to be such a good movie? This is how to do an anthology film – plenty of lore connections, new characters, and a heist that twists and turns throughout. Forget what you’ve heard about director changes and reshoots, this movie is easy to love.
It’s that time of year again! Gather your allies and brush up on your Mandalorian, it’s May 4th!
