By now, we have seen at least five or six different versions or trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the countdown to the actual ‘premier day,’ is less than a month away! To say that I’m excited, well, that’s more of an understatement at best.
… “Sure you’re up for this?”– Han Solo, Star Wars: The Force Awakens
That’s a good question. Am I? Oh, I’m sure I’m not alone on this one. Be honest, who else felt as if Han was directing this towards the viewer, us, not just Finn? And yes, anyone who has a blog for a website or a podcast about Star Wars has already discussed or analyzed the topic on ‘how to prepare’ for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but that’s not what this next edition of ‘Becca’s Chava Chat’ is about.
After having Mike and Joao of The Cantina Cast on the most recent episode of Coffee With Kenobi, Dan and Cory head over to their show for part two of a podcasting crossover event. The discussion for this show is ‘Spoilers v. Non-Spoilers’ — Timely considering some of us have had to avoid recent leaks!
JUST … IMAGES REALLY, FEELINGS …
If you were to ask me what I remember about Saturday, April 18th 2015, my answer would be: “Just … images really, feelings.” And yet, it’s a day that I’ll never forget.
No, this isn’t going to be a symbolic blog or even anything remotely close. Nor will it be, creatively or critically, thought-provoking. What it will be, is an open-window passageway, or reflection, on my personal experiences of that day; a Rebels reconnection.
Of course, by the time you read this post, some of you will have already seen the premiere of Star Wars Rebels: “The Siege of Lothal,” but back then, on April 18th, that was not the case. In fact, I can’t even put into words, the amount of excitement and gratefulness that I still have, for all of those responsible in giving me such an awesome opportunity and a sea full of shoaling emotional memories. Hence the phrase, “just … images really, feelings.”
