I don’t know what’s going on at the moment, but I’m not “feeling” the Star Wars vibe right now.
The lead up to Episode VII had me doing back flips of joy. The initial news coming out about the first Anthology film likewise had me pretty excited.
Now? That’s all kind of evaporated.
The odd bit of news is coming out about Rogue One, and we’re getting some news on Rebels too, but next to nothing on Episode VIII so maybe that’s the deal breaker for me?
I’ve always been heavily invested in the Saga films. I love Luke, Leia, Han, Threepio, R2, Chewie, Lando and Yoda. I loved Anakin, Padme, Obi-Wan and Palpatine despite how unpopular it was to enjoy the Prequel films. I’ve fallen in love with Poe, Rey and Finn. Maybe the lack of news on that film has diminished the initial excitement I’d been feeling for Rogue One?
Maybe the news that’s coming out is just average.. and I’m getting too philosophical about it all!
So, rather than write an article on what’s been going on in the land of Star Wars lately, let me direct you to two incredible sites that will keep you up to date on everything.
They’re my go-to sites, but I admit I’ve stopped visiting them as often as I used to because they are kind of drowning in way too many podcasts. One or two podcasts, fine, podcast after podcast all about the same thing just done by different people and I kind of don’t see the point and it becomes a bit of a turn off.
Never the less, the news these two sites presents is usually pretty good – even if they never ending podcasts are a little irritating.
Of course, you should also always check out the official Star Wars website at www.starwars.com.
As soon as anything momentous pops up, I’ll be sure to post about it here.
Until then, May the Force be with You.
