Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is Coming Sooner Than I Thought
I enjoyed Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order as much as the next gamer. And now we’ve got the sequel coming in only a month! Who knew it was coming so soon? Probably everybody. They put out these release dates way ahead of time. I guess I’ve just been too blinded looking forward to that new Zelda game in May. I’ll probably definitely get and play Survivor when it comes out. I’ve got to continuously justify splurging on this Playstation 5, after all.
Looks like fun. I still don’t care about Cal Kestis. People really love this guy, but he’s just a video game protagonist to me. And it looks like he’s getting up to all sorts of new mischief. Two lightsabers?! I think I played the first game on my PS4. I wonder if my PS5 can somehow read my saved games from my previous console to port over the lightsaber I designed. Or maybe we’ll all just design new lightsabers from scratch.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor comes out on April 28!
The Mandalorian Season 3 is Definitely For Me!
After years of waiting, and multiple Star Wars shows in between, we’re finally going to get the third season of The Mandalorian. I still think it’s weird that we had some major story movement during The Book of Boba Fett, but I watched that, so I’m fully up to speed. They can make these shows how they like. I’m ready for this new season and I’m ready for this story!
Looks great! It’s a little funny that all these other Mandalorians are rainbow-colored, while he gets to stay this cool, gleaming silver dude. But if it works, it works. We’re gonna learn a lot more about the Mandalorians as a people, and that should be cool. And we’re gonna get even more about Grogu’s backstory, which we’re all dying to see!
The third season of The Mandalorian comes to Disney+ on March 1.
There’s Gonna Be More Bad Batch
The Bad Batch was a pretty OK cartoon. When it was good, it was good. When it was mediocre, it was really mediocre. But it’s ultimately more Star Wars content, and that’s always fun. I like Star Wars. You like Star Wars. Let the people make their cartoons.
The biggest surprise in the new trailer is the return of Gungi, the wookiee Jedi! He was in an episode or two of The Clone Wars and is notable for having a badass wooden lightsaber. So I guess we have yet another Jedi who survived Order 66. That’s fine, especially if it’s Gungi. He’s a cool dude, and more power to him. Gungi and Omega should make for a fun pairing.
The Bad Batch returns to Disney+ on Jan. 4.
6 Thoughts on the First Season of Andor (Review)
We are living in a weird Star Wars age. There hasn’t been a new Star Wars movie in years, with no sign of anything coming to the big screen anytime soon. But there has been an endless run of TV shows, both live action and animated, and they run the gamut of crummy to exceptional. And possibly the best of them all, Andor, came to an end just last week after a truly unexpected and emotional first season.
TV Show Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic
I loved Andor. I would be the first to tell you that Cassian Andor was a weird choice for TV show. I liked Rogue One just fine, but Andor? Now I’ll be the first to admit when I’m wrong. The geniuses behind this show, like Tony Gilroy, have delivered some of the best Star Wars content in the history of the franchise. They found their own little corner of the galaxy far, far away and delivered a powerful story about the nature of fascism and the need to fight it in all its forms.
Join me after the jump for my full thoughts and review of the first season of Andor. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the season. And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments below.Read the rest of this entry
6 Things I Want to See in the Ahsoka Tano TV Show
I watched the very excellent Tales of the Jedi cartoon series on Disney+ this weekend and it was a hoot! Six short and very sweet episodes showing off key moments in the lives of Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku, the latter of whom received some real depth to his complex character. Great little show, and hopefully we get some more Jedi Tales going forward. And who doesn’t love some more Ahsoka Tano content?
The next Star Wars show we’re getting, I think, will be the live action Ahsoka show starring Rosario Dawson. We know it’s going to feature Ezra Bridger from Rebels and Grand Admiral Thrawn. But what else are we going to get? Personally, I’m not all that interested in seeing the Ahsoka show focused too much on Ezra’s return. He was never my favorite character in Rebels. Though now that I think about it…was Ahsoka my favorite character in Rebels?! Yeah, probably. But she’s got a lot of material to draw from and plenty of stuff that could appear in her show!
Join me after the jump for my hopes and dreams for the live action Ahsoka Tano TV show! And feel free to share your own in the comments.Read the rest of this entry
