Don’t call it a comeback! Because….it’s really not. Sorry I missed the last couple of blogs, but I hope you’ll forgive my absence. To paraphrase Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park, “Life finds a way…to get in the way.” I won’t bore you with the details, but I would like to thank all my Coffee With Kenobi family for their kind words and support. And now….the main event.
So the final Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer has come out. I saw it, did you? Of course you did. What did you think? Wait, hold that thought. First, let me tell you what I think: I wish I hadn’t seen it.
“George Lucas built an empire out of his imagination, yet critics have challenged his accomplishments.” – David Childers
David Childers’ Rogue One: The Legacy of George Lucas takes you on a literary-cinematic journey through the challenges and accomplishments of “The Maker” himself, George Lucas. Not only does Childers explore Lucas’ creative career evolvement, but he also questions Lucas’ choices along the way as he investigates each one, through a journalistic-critical lens that applies a series of scrutinized research. In other words, Childers leaves no stone unturned or in this case, gelatin emulsion coating from a sheet of transparent plastic film.
Everyone knows that Count Dooku is a Sith Lord. The Clone Wars made that very apparent. However, do you remember the first time you were introduced to the Count? For many fans such as myself, Attack of the Clones introduced the former Jedi. It occurs to me that I think I always knew that Count Dooku was a Sith. That is to say, through Lucasfilm’s marketing of the movie, I believe I knew Count Dooku was a Sith before I ever saw Attack of the Clones in theaters. With that in mind, I wondered how would my interpretation of the movie would change if I viewed it through the lens of not knowing Count Dooku’s no-so-secret identity. I decided to test it out and indulged myself with a viewing at home recently. Here is what I discovered.
**Spoilers** for the Star Wars Rebels episode, “The Last Battle.”
Think the Clone Wars are over? Not quite. There’s one battle left to fight. Captain Rex, Kanan, and Ezra find themselves battling old Separatist Battle Droids, aka “clankers,” as they try to save a captive Zeb. Who will ultimately end the Clone Wars? Or, with the Empire bearing down on their location, will the two sides find a common enemy?

How do you identify yourself? When you meet someone new, what facets of your life do you mention first as an introduction? For some, it is relationships, children, employment, favorite Star Wars movie, hat size. Whatever. One thing we are always shy to ask about is someone’s religious background and preference. I think this is a newer phenomenon, actually. Nevertheless, in the new millennium, crazy answers to all of these questions are offered. Quite often, we get stories about people listing Jedi as the religion of choice on some form or another.
DONALD GLOVER CAST AS YOUNG LANDO CALRISSIAN IN UPCOMING HAN SOLO STAR WARS STAND-ALONE FILM THE SMOOTH-TALKING SMUGGLER IS COMING BACK TO THE BIG SCREEN.
Hello, what have we here?
Lucasfilm announced today that Donald Glover, an acclaimed actor, award-winning writer, and Grammy-nominated artist, will be playing the part of Lando Calrissian in the still-untitled Han Solo Star Wars film, helmed by directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Glover will join Alden Ehrenreich — previously cast as Han Solo — in bringing two iconic Star Wars characters back to the big screen, but at a time in their lives previously unexplored. This new film depicts Lando in his formative years as a scoundrel on the rise in the galaxy’s underworld — years before the events involving Han, Leia, and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back and his rise to Rebel hero in Return of the Jedi.
