How to Nail a Character 101: Brian Daley & “The Han Solo Adventures”

I. Preamble & Introduction Han Solo is one of the most popular Star Wars characters -- he is, in fact, one of the most popular cinematic heroes period; in 2003, the American Film Institute honoured him with a placement at #14 in their list of "100 Greatest Heroes & Villains."

Thoughts on the SW Soundtrack “Remasters”…

Full-disclosure: I'm a bit of a music nerd. When Sony's license on the Star Wars soundtracks dried up (around the end of 2016/beginning of 2017), I theorized we would see some variation of the movie scores re-released under a Disney label.

More Thoughts on the Finale of “Rebels”…

I've had some time to sleep on it and give some thought to the series finale episodes of Star Wars: Rebels, and, to be honest...I still find myself in much the same position that I was in several hours ago.

First: Overall, I really enjoyed the finale--for the most part. I think the pacing was a little odd, and the execution was...interesting. But I can get over a lot of those things. I can handle Ezra kidnapping Thrawn and using the perrgill. I can definitely handle Jacen Syndulla--that's cool! Here are a few things that...I'm… Continue reading First Thoughts on the Finale of “Rebels”
