Star Wars Celebration went on all weekend, and after the big real of Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker and it’s trailer, we’ve now got trailers for a new video game and the resurrected season of the Clone Wars cartoon. So neat Star Wars stuff is still coming to our universe!
First up, let’s check out that sweet Clone Wars trailer!
Looks pretty neat! I was late in getting on board both Clone Wars and Rebels, but both turned out great! So another batch of Clone Wars episode should be sweet!
Then there’s the video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It’s supposed to be a single-player game about a young padawan rising to become a Jedi in the post-Revenge of the Sith time period. I’m more hesitant about this.
I’ll see what the reviews say before I buy this game. This is a character/setting combination we’ve seen plenty of times before. Kanan Jarrus from Star Wars Rebels was exactly this. And I’m rather bummed that the main character is your standard bland white guy with brown hair. They couldn’t have come up with an alien padawan? Those existed, you know!
Sadly, Star Wars didn’t release the trailer for The Mandalorian TV show, despite playing it for the audience at Celebration. Wonder why they held that one back. Maybe they want to give it its own big release in a couple months.
I am just one man, blogging, while also at my day job. There’s a very good chance I won’t get to everything that comes out this weekend from San Diego Comic-Con. But I can post a new trailer like anybody’s business! And these are a bunch that arrived last night!
First up, a proper teaser trailer for the new season of Doctor Who, starring Jodie Whittaker. I like this much better than the quickie we got earlier in the week. We get some actual Doctor in this one, some real personality.
Next up is a story trailer for the Spider-Man game coming to Playstation 4 on Sept. 7. Now that I actually own a Playtation 4, I’m actually very excited about this game. So any new look at what we’re going to get is exciting.
Even if it still runs the risk of being a bad game. We’ll see.
Another trailer we got is a look at the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I quite enjoyed that cartoon, and I guess enough fans did as well that Disney is bringing it back for another batch of brand new episodes!
Anything that gives us more Ahsoka Tano is good news to me! Even if the ultimate Ahsoka/Darth Vader showdown already exists.
Finally, we got another look at that new Ninja Turtles cartoon, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This first look also provides a couple minutes of actual episode. And I can honestly say I won’t be having anything to do with this show. It looks terrible.
That’s not to say I’m one of those bitter fans complaining about how this new show is killing my childhood. Not at all. I’m simply recognizing that this show is not meant for me, and therefore I won’t take part. The animation, the comedy, the entire style of the show is just not for me. But I wish everybody involved the best of luck and I hope their take on the Turtles is successful.
Be sure to keep returning to my blog today as I dutifully attempt to upload all of the trailers and news that I either can or care about.
I don’t hate the Star Wars prequels. There, I said it. I’m not ashamed of it. I saw all three of them in the theaters and enjoyed the experience each time. Those movies have awesome lightsaber battles, cool spaceships, and they really flesh out the whole Jedi/Sith mythology.
I also don’t have any problem with Jar Jar Binks.
Everybody hates Jar Jar Binks. It’s fashionable to hate Jar Jar Binks. But you know what, I never have. I didn’t mind him in The Phantom Menace, and I don’t mind him now. Granted, I totally understand what people don’t like about him and the prequels. I get it, I really do. But me, personally? I don’t mind Jar Jar at all.
In fact, there are at least six occasions in the official Star Wars cannon where Jar Jar Binks is totally awesome! Don’t believe me? Join me after the jump!
