What I Learned From Spiderman: Homecoming

Jay’s Galactic Expressions

Warning: Major Spoilers ahead for Spiderman: Homecoming!

Everywhere I look in our society today, I am bombarded by messages of “girl power.” Some are very positive, encouraging and empowering. Others leave me – a grown woman – with the proverbial “very bad feeling” about what my younger female counterparts may eventually be molded into.

With the release of the cartoon shorts Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, there has been a noticeable spike in the conversations regarding female-centered role-models, and how those role-models are being utilized to market not only merchandise but the message of “what it means to be a girl.” I love the series, and I believe it sends positive messages that transcend all human-imposed boundaries. However universally acceptable I feel the series to be, there exist those who oppose and/or challenge that notion, for whatever personal motives or agendas they may have. As Palpatine said: “so be it.” I’m not here to change anyone’s beliefs or opinions, but I do have some things to get off my chest.

Forces of Destiny With My Sons

With the recent release of Star Wars Forces of Destiny, I thought it would be interesting and fun to get the initial reactions of two of my sons, one who is nine years old (Scout) and one who is five (Cedar). Scout has a Star Wars knowledge that impresses even me. He can dissect and go in-depth so well that he challenges me with some of his thoughts and questions. He recalls exactly what happened in any of the movies as well as The Clone Wars, Rebels, and The Freemaker Adventures. On the other hand, Cedar still has a very rudimentary understanding of Star Wars. He knows many of the characters and will usually sit through most of an episode of Rebels, but he hasn’t made it through an entire movie yet and doesn’t quite understand all of the connections between even the most well-known characters.
