Lord and Miller fired?! – Dagobah Day #33

Is it time to panic? I think it’s time to panic. Now, the second Star Wars spin-off film in development is the Han Solo film (which is apparently just going to be titled Solo — no official news, though). We’ve known for a while that Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who’ve successfully directed The LEGO Movie and both 21 and 22 Jump Street, were going to be directing the film.

Let’s have a look at what’s been shown to us here. Continue reading “TRAILER REVIEW: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Official Teaser Trailer) – Dagobah Day #32”

‘Star Wars Celebration 2017: Day One’ Reaction – Dagobah Day #31

Like millions of others around the world, my Star Wars Celebration 2017 is spent at home. I spent the entire day watching the official Star Wars live stream, and while we don’t always get to see everything, I thought that what we got here was absolutely terrific.

Now, in this little reaction post, I’ll be discussing some of the news that got out of day one of Star Wars Celebration 2017, as well as some of the panels that I was able to see — starting with the 40 Years of Star Wars-panel!

Star Wars Celebration is happening in Orlando, Florida, and we are probably going to get the first trailer for The Last Jedi as well as some big announcements for the future of the franchise.

Top 10 Best Moments in The Force Awakens – Dagobah Day #29

best-moments-tfa

Last year, I made two lists about the two first Star Wars trilogies. The list for the Prequel Trilogy was rather difficult to put together, while the list for the Original Trilogy was much more fun to do. I’ve previously promised to return to The Force Awakens (which I’ve seen 14 or 15 times by now) and, finally, make a ‘Top 10 Best Moments in The Force Awakens‘ list. Today I’m finally ready to reveal the list. Let’s get to it. Continue reading “Top 10 Best Moments in The Force Awakens – Dagobah Day #29”

Slow News Day – Dagobah Day #28

dago-feb-2017

So, yeah, I had hoped to write about a teaser trailer for The Last Jedi today, but no such trailer was released during Super Bowl sunday. Therefore I actually don’t have a lot to talk about today. There isn’t really a pressing news story that needs to be addressed. So, instead, I’ll give you an update on Dagobah Day and the Star Wars coverage on the blog.

Episode 8 is ‘The Last Jedi’ – Dagobah Day #27

dagobah-day-the-last-jedi

Well. Well. Well. We finally have a title. And I think it’s an absolutely fantastic Star Wars title. Today I want to talk about how I interpret the title and the ‘red lettering’ of the teaser poster. It could be really straightforward, but maybe – just maybe – it hints at someone not many people see as a Jedi right now. Let’s get to it.  Continue reading “Episode 8 is ‘The Last Jedi’ – Dagobah Day #27”

2017: The Journey to Episode VIII Continues – Dagobah Day #26

We’ve seen Rogue One, and now we’re looking forward to the next chapter in the Star Wars saga – Star Wars: Episode VIII. We’ve still got quite a way to go before we’re watching the movie, but I thought that I’d sort of prepare you for what I’m looking forward to in the world of Star Wars in 2017.

Farewell, Princess – Dagobah Day #25

When I saw Rogue One, I expected that it would be the subject of the twenty-fifth Dagobah Day. Then, a couple of days ago, Carrie Fisher suffered a heart attack during a flight. I had hoped and prayed that she would survive it, but I’ve just learned that our Princess has passed away.  Continue reading “Farewell, Princess – Dagobah Day #25”

The following is a review of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Directed by Gareth Edwards.

In 2015, J. J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens proudly announced that the good Star Wars was finally back. Gone are the days of the disappointing and operatic George Lucas prequels. With The Force Awakens, Lucasfilm proved that the future of the Star Wars saga – the episodes – were in good hands. But what about the untold stories of the prequels? To answer several unanswered questions Lucasfilm will give us these spin-off films that they call ‘Star Wars stories.’ Continue reading “REVIEW: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)”
