The Star Wars That Could Have Been

I’m a big fan of Mr. Sunday Movies, a YouTube podcaster from Australia who has been doing pop culture shenanigans for years now. His latest project is as fun as they come! He and animator Ethan Taylor have put together a video of Collin Trevorrow’s unused script for Star Wars: Episode 9.

Behold!

That’s really fun stuff! That animation is brilliant. Such a great job. It looks so smooth, with great comedic timing. And the movie looks like fun, too. I can’t say if it’s better than the Episode 9 we did get, but it definitely looks good. And, again, it’s a monumental animation project! Just what we need in lockdown.

I was OK with The Rise of Skywalker. But man, the whole sequel trilogy could have been so much better…

It’s Shogun World with Rick and Morty!

These are crazy times. So let’s get crazy with this special anime edition of Rick and Morty that came out this past week amid everybody stuck at home on quarantine! Warning for those who don’t like excessive cartoon blood violence.

I believe this is an homage to Lone Wolf and Cub, which I’ve never seen, but am enjoying in The Mandalorian. And it’s just fun! And is a pretty solid edition to the weirdness of life right now. Just throw this thing out into the quarantine void and let everybody have a bit of a lark.

That’s my kind of virus crisis weirdness!

Only Leigh Makes Her Triumphant Return to Battle Coronavirus!

I am a huge fan of creator Leigh Lahav and her various cartoons on YouTube. She’s spent the past few years working on some outside projects, but now that quarantine is here, she’s found time to put out another parody video!

I need to hurry up and let coronavirus quarantine fuel my own creative adventures…

Anyway, Only Leigh is great, I love her videos, and now that I’m reminded of her Patreon, I need to seriously consider getting in on that. There are a lot of creators I really enjoy who could use as much support as they can get during this virus crisis.

Let’s Brush Up Our Green Lantern Knowledge In These Trying Times

Noah Sterling has been knocking out awesome comic book summaries in his charming animation style for years now, and he just delivered one detailing the history of all the Earth Green Lanterns. It’s fun! And we could all use a bit of fun right now.

I, too, have been wondering what happened to Simon Baz. We haven’t seen him for years!

But I am enjoying Sojourner Mullein in Far Sector! A new issue came out this week and it’s good. Hopefully she gets a chance to really shine going forward.

Who’s your favorite Green Lantern?

How The Rise of Skywalker Should Have Ended

We are several months removed from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and my opinion hasn’t really changed. It was fine, probably. It wasn’t a big deal. I think the sequel trilogy, on the whole, is a big failure of potential. And now none of that potential will ever come to fruition, unless Disney+ puts out an entire new animated series that tells the stories of Rey, Finn and Poe between the movies. That could definitely be a thing!

Until then, How It Should Have Ended tackles The Rise of Skywalker!

And they do a really good job! Lots of funny gags and bits throughout the video. When they don’t focus on their own in-jokes, they put out good material. Kudos all around!
