On this latest episode of Unmistakably Star Wars, the team sits down to chat the recent Star Wars news circulating the interwebs! From the announcement that Ahmed Best will be attending SWCC and Episode IX footage shown at the Disney shareholders meeting to the official word that the Skywalker Saga is ending with IX, it was a big week+ for SW blogs and pods! We also conclude our What’s My Line series by taking a closer look at the entire Star Wars galaxy itself – and choosing our individual favorites! You might be surprised by what each member of team USW ultimately chose!
As we continue our series, highlighting pivotal moments of dialogue in a character’s arc, this week we take a closer look at Padme Amidala. This week’s conversation also features Amy Wishman, and Charlotte Errity from Skytalkers Podcast.
It’s 2017 and I’m in my dorm, my eyes are glued to the laptop humming on my desk. I have two main objectives, catch the 40th Anniversary panel and get any information that I can about The Last Jedi. It was the first time I’d paid attention to Celebration, in fact, it was the first time that I’d heard of it…
That’s what I felt to the very core of my being when I first learned my fiance was sleeping with my best friend in college. Suddenly, the hopes I had stored away, and the plans for the future were nothing close to what I had envisioned. For the better part of two years (two years!) I experienced a myriad of emotions - from shock, to denial, to anger, and more. It’s as if I were on a carousel, experiencing each of the emotions again, and again, and again. In my mind, there was no way to reconcile the circumstances - in one fell swoop, I had lost my fiance, my best friend, and all the hopes involving each of them. Even the ‘good’ memories would now be tainted.
The past two months, I kind of stepped away from Star Wars...no one really knew that until now. This is unusual for me because December is the"anniversary"of when I fell in love with Star Wars, but life happened and I did not have that desire to get excited about this fandom. I did manage to film a video for a future article. I just have to edit it. I also bought a Star Wars book that I plan to review. I can definitely say that it is my favorite Star Wars book, ever…just saying.

As Star Wars fans, many of us want diversity behind the camera. Every time a new director is named we ask, “When will a non-white and/or non-male be tapped to direct a Star Wars movie?” (Unfortunately, this eliminates me from consideration, and I know I must be near the top of the list. Alas, I am willing to step aside for the sake of progress.). We are passive because we have no power to actually choose the people to fill these positions.
