When Solo released in May 2018, I had pretty low expectations: I wanted a fun summer movie that would be a pleasant break from the fractious fandom of The Last Jedi. I didn’t expect to find a new favorite Star Wars (it’s just SO FUN) and a newfound appreciation for Han as a character and the sequel trilogy.
Since the release of The Last Jedi in December of 2017, we, as Star Wars fans, have experienced a variety of reactions to the direction that Rian Johnson, and Disney as a whole, has taken the Star Wars saga. I, for one, loved TLJ and feel like it was a refreshing new story line that brought a new light to the Star Wars galaxy, and I can’t wait to see how Abrams concludes the Skywalker saga.
Long story short, I am a huge fan and I probably know way too much information for the average person. The reason why I was so excited to research this was because when it comes to Star Wars, I love studying character development or psychological aspects. I never really pay attention to theories, up and coming discussions, or heavily debated topics. The fact that there was a theory that caught my eye and piqued my interested, was pretty exciting.
On episode 156 of the Unmistakably Star Wars’ flagship show, I was posed the question of whether or not I’d prefer new characters or more of the ones we’ve spent so much of our lives and energy with. This question, of course, came in regards to the ever-expanding Star Wars universe and its multitude of mediums flooding our content pools (mostly okay with this!).
There’s something to be said for ‘just hanging around’ - being a constant influence in another’s life, and enjoying the company regardless of the circumstances Life sometimes throws our way. Indeed, since the Fall of 2015, our podcast team has weathered many transitions and evolutions, but kept hanging around. Last month, Unmistakably Star Wars was honored and humbled by the folks at Feedspot.com to be recognized among so many other fantastic Star Wars pods.
If you have listened to the Galactic Series, Part One, you would have known that a female character I most related to was Ciena Rae. Like fellow team member, Regina Sanders, we both found Claudia Gray's Lost Stars to be captivating and saw ourselves in Ciena Rae.
