The Rescue Plan from Jabba’s Palace (Part I)

The Rescue Plan - Freeing Han from Carbonite

The first act of Return of the Jedi featured Han Solo’s rescue by his friends from the clutches of the vile gangster Jabba the Hutt. Luke, Leia, Lando, Chewbacca, and the droids each arrived at Jabba’s palace either individually or in pairs. Not that Star Wars fans need a reminder, but eventually Leia freed Han from the carbonite. However, Jabba then threw Han in a dungeon and kept Leia by his side in her iconic outfit. Luke showed up and the rescue moved into its final stages. A question arises: was Han’s rescue a well executed plan or the result of improvisation by Luke, Leia, and the others? Although there isn’t a definitive answer, an analysis of the scene suggests Han’s rescue was the result of a well-executed plan with some improvisation thrown in. This two part blog post will analyze the steps of the rescue plan and evaluate how much went according to a plan, and what they left to improvisation.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi — New City, Characters, and Images Revealed by Vanity Fair

Yesterday we saw the four new limited-edition Vanity Fair covers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. They promised us even more images today and have delivered in a massive way! Not just the new images, though, but new character and city reveals as well.

With the new images released today, all captured by the great Annie Leibovitz, we get a closer look at the characters we already love — Luke, Rey, Leia, Kylo Ren, Poe, Finn, and more — but we also get our first look at new characters such as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, played by Laura Dern, and a shady grifter-type character called “DJ,” played by Benicio Del Toro.

Jay’s Galactic Espressions

Me, with my Sphero BB-8 and Force For Change T-shirt

Robotics have enthralled the human psyche since the ancient Egyptians developed a steam-operated animatronic statue (1), so it’s really no wonder that the Star Wars saga has always been at the forefront of delighting our hearts and souls with its wide array of droids. From our first introduction to the comical and endearing duo of R2-D2 and C-3PO in 1977, to the absolutely loveable BB-8 in the 2015 release of The Force Awakens, we have undeniably been smitten by these amazing gizmos.

Why are we so enchanted by droids? What is it about them that draws our hearts and souls into their animatronic grasps? Obviously, there are also scary robots and destructive robots, but this piece will focus solely on the positive attachments we feel.
