Marvel’s Star Wars: Age of Rebellion is the second wave of one-shot comics exploring major and minor characters through new bite-sized stories. This time we jump into the Galactic Civil War, also known as the Original Trilogy era. Do these new stories hold up to the overall great Age of Republic stories? Read on to find out with a recap of the first three issues – Princess Leia, Grand Moff Tarkin, and the 3-part Special.
Think back to the last time you watched Episode I: The Phantom Menace. We aren’t here to talk about how much you liked or disliked it. It could be 1999, it could be ten minutes ago. I don’t care. Actually, I want to talk about a curious throwaway line. Anakin Skywalker and his mother Shmi are sitting at dinner, giving some insight to their guests Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jar Jar Binks, and Queen of Naboo, Padme Amidala, about life on Tatooine. A sandstorm rustles and wails outside, and then Anakin gives some insight into the cruel methods used to keep slaves in line. He mentions a transmitter inside his body (as well as all local slaves) that will detonate if the slave attempts to escape.
Before the Rebellion of hope had been built, the Organa family had to start somewhere. What happened before Leia received the Death Star plans from the battle of Scarif? How did that same Rebel Alliance come to be, and how did it pull off the impossible task of fighting the Empire? Let’s answer some of those questions with a recap/review of Leia: Princess of Alderaan! Continue reading “Return of the Princess – Leia: Princess of Alderaan Review”
The trailer is here and Luke Skywalker’s boss takes it all back – watch it over and over, he was just kidding! See Rey train, Kylo’s raging conflicts, many new shots of Ach-To and Crait, and new vehicles like the TIE Silencer and AT-M6 walkers. Get hyped for December again! The Last Jedi arrives in full Force December 15th, 2017.
Two months to go, people! Watch this exciting trailer featuring confirmation of planets, vehicles, troopers, heroes, and of course weapons from the upcoming shooter. War will rage across all eras, and I will rage if people keep rolling about like droidekas to dodge shots. But hey, there’s single player this time and the story sounds great!
Also, get familiar with Inferno Squad, the stars of the single player campaign, here (spoiler warning)
Happy Friday! Enjoy the new The Last Jedi wave of merch and don’t be a scalper. New Lego, Black Series, and more are available in stores and online now!
I had a bad feeling about today but I had no idea it would turn out like this. When I heard the news that Carrie Fisher had passed (after hearing it through some miscommunication I should say – the details seemed muddy, and the last I heard, she was recovering) I almost couldn’t believe it. 2016 hasn’t been kind in regards to the passing of prolific people, but it’s important to remember that the people who leave us live on through their actions in life, and in our fond memories.
