NOTE: While this is a review of The Last Jedi, it does not contain any spoilers regarding plot or characters. However, the tone and atmosphere are discussed at length. If you wish to remain 100% spoiler-free, feel free to come back and read this review after you have seen the film.
Star Wars Rebels has consistently been one of the strongest storylines in the saga’s mythology. The structure of each episode, the depth and breadth of the characters, and the formation of what will eventually be the galaxy’s answer to the tyranny of the Empire are all featured in Season Three. Throw in the machinations of everyone’s favorite Chiss, Grand Admiral Thrawn, and you’ve got Star Wars animation at its finest. Season Three is a relentless, action-packed tour de force that does not let up, and further escalates the tension in the galaxy, as well as the character arcs of the crewmembers of the Ghost.

KeepMe Group has teamed up with LUCASFILM and Disney to create The Ultimate Star Wars Collectors Gift – a range of Official Star Wars Fragrances boxed in beautifully designed packaging. The Star Wars fragrance collection includes six unique scents representing the light and dark side of the Force. Amazing, right!?
In the development of this, KeepMe Group has focused on creating a range of products that are true to Star Wars fans from many walks of life. The team, based in the UK, states these items have been created by Star Wars fans for Star Wars fans, and, with the attention to detail on the packaging, it’s evident. The hardcore fan and collectors will truly appreciate the attention to detail with references to characters (using unique designs that can ONLY be found in this collection and are artistic and beautiful) It truly is a cool product, combining high-quality Eau de Parfum fragrances with high-end packaging finishes. Basically, it appeals to a much more diverse audience than one might originally expect.

The Bradford Exchange has long been known for high-end, unique collectibles of some of the most popular and beloved franchises in popular culture. Naturally, many Star Wars items are well-represented in the impressive Bradford Exchange catalog, because they know what collectors like.
For example, let’s look at the Sith vs. Jedi Wall Clock with Light-Up Lightsabers. The wall clock instantly enhances your Star Wars room, office, family den, etc., with the quality and detail the Bradford Exchange is known for. It includes one of the most iconic and pivotal scenes in the Star Wars mythology, the climactic duel in Return of the Jedi between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker, with the fate of the Rebellion and the galaxy hanging in the balance.
AC Worldwide’s Star Wars Bluetooth speakers are an incredible value for both Star Wars fans and audiophiles alike. The sound quality is superb, as is the sculpt; they are sure to please even the most discerning of consumers. We are proud to have them as an affiliate at Coffee With Kenobi. Let’s take a closer look at two of the three options: the C-3PO speaker, and the Darth Vader speaker.
The first ever standalone Star Wars movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, debuted on December 16th, and with it comes a unique set of circumstances. At long last, the story of how the Rebellion came into possession of the Death Star plans has come into the canon of Star Wars‘ sometimes daunting mythology, and the revelation of this is unlike anything we’ve seen before on screen from a galaxy far, far away. The ramifications this film will have on future Star Wars storytelling will be intricate and, most likely, long lasting.
Coffee With Kenobi co-host Dan Z. was able to take the 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition SUV out for a test drive, thanks to Uftring Nissan in Peoria, Illinois. Pretty cool way to celebrate the opening of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story!
So, what did Dan think? Find out in his review below:
When I first discovered that Disney was expanding its Star Wars presence in their theme parks, I was beyond ebullient. Like many of us, I have many fond memories of the Disney theme parks, and when you add Star Wars to the mix, you’ve got entertainment gold. Star Wars Land is at least a few years away (absolutely nothing has been confirmed tim-wise at the time of this post), but the appetite for anything Star Wars is at an all time high.
To whet our collective appetites until Star Wars Land is finished, the Launch Bay has been created to satiate us , and certainly does so in grand fashion.
The Force Awakens finally arrives on Blu-ray and digital HD download this week, and is everything fans of this brilliant entry into the Star Wars universe could hope for. The film was easily one of the most anticipated films in recent memory, and with the promise of deleted scenes, a number of bonus features, and the film itself (the highest grossing domestic box office film of all time), there is much cause for rejoicing among the masses. The film delivered on just about every level, and the Blu-ray continues that cinematic tradition of quality we have come to expect from the Star Wars brand.
