Update on the Studio 

I haven’t been around as much as I’d like to be, but I plan to change that soon. My wife and I are moved in and the construction of my studio is underway! But that means a lot of clutter and boxes that still need to be shaped into my dream workspace and Star Wars haven. It’s getting there, slowly but surely, and I’m keeping a backlog of books and toys I want to talk about. Once I have a space to take pictures set up, the figure reviews will come along. Here’s just a few things I’ve picked up since the move that I plan to share some more thoughts on soon:

  • Phasma – So different and strange, and who knows how much of this will be expanded on in future films and novels. 
  • Darth Vader (Volume One, Marvel Comics) – So much good to say about the Vader comics. Couldn’t get enough!
  • Doctor Aphra (Marvel Comics) – Aphra is awesome. Great new character and fun books. 
  • Leia: Princess of Alderaan – Still reading this one. I like it but how does it stack up against Claudia Grey’s previous Star Wars novels?
  • And of course, the Black Series! I’ve picked up Luke, Rey, and the Stormtrooper Executioner from The Last Jedi as well as Commander Gree , Grand Admiral Thrawn, and the Inferno Squad Agent.

So there’s much to do and I’ll get to it soon. Just have to finish building that throne room. Er I mean studio space. More to come soon! I thank all my readers for being patient while I get things in real life in order first.

Watch “Star Wars Episode VIII Title Revealed! | The Star Wars Show” on YouTube

Well that was nonchalant, wasn’t it? Seemingly out of nowhere, the name of Episode VIII is at last revealed. But what does the title mean? Speculation ahead!

Well that was nonchalant, wasn’t it? Seemingly out of nowhere, the name of Episode VIII is at last revealed. But what does the title mean? Speculation ahead!

Luke Skywalker was the last of his kind, with the unique gifts in the Force to become a full-fledged Jedi (Yes, I know there was another. And Kanan and Ezra. And Ahsoka was still around somewhere maybe. Yeah…) Is he the last Jedi the title is referring to? That would set up Episode Eight to be largely around his struggles rather than centering on Rey. Also, the opening crawl of Episode Seven specifically calls attention to Luke as the last Jedi, which would back up a pretty Luke-centric story.

Or is Rey the last Jedi that Luke is able to train before he passes on, either naturally or in battle against Kylo Ren and the First Order? Does he pull an Obi Wan and sacrifice himself to become one with the Force, more powerful than Kylo and Snoke can possibly imagine? A pretty big fight scene between Rey and Luke against the Knights of Ren is confirmed, so who knows how that turns out. 

Jax Pavan certainly isn’t in this movie. That being said, what do you think about Episode Eight’s title? It’s a title from Legends and its referenced in two previous movies. Whatever it is, I’m excited to see it next winter.
