The Future Of The Freemakers

This post contains some spoilers from Episode VII, Episode VIII, and The Freemaker Adventures.

Not gonna lie, I’ve been missing The Freemaker Adventures a lot lately. I know that might sound ridiculous when there’s no shortage of Star Wars stories around, and for sure I’m thankful for all that, but spending these last two summers with the Freemaker family has been very special to me. I think because it’s been the most deep, meaningful storytelling we’ve ever seen in Lego Star Wars, and when you combine that with the usual Lego Star Wars hilarity and cleverness, amazing things happen! It is truly on-equals with the rest of the canon galaxy for me, and I’m sure for many of you reading this.

At the beginning of the summer, I told myself I wouldn’t let myself be disappointed if there was no new season this year. But throughout the last couple months, I’ve had dream after dream where I’m seeing ads for new episodes! Even one night, I dreamed they made Lieutenant Valeria a playable character in Battlefront II! (Frankly, that would make a ton of sense and needs to be done) So I’ve realized yes, I am a little disappointed.

I guess the toughest thing has been the fact they never said it was over. If Return Of The Return Of The Jedi was the series finale, it was a fantastic, perfect finale. But the Disney XD socials only said it was the season finale. And it made sense to me that they would continue it! Lego’s made other animated series that have lasted far more seasons, and with TFA’s stellar reviews, surely they could go on for a season or two more! I had to remind myself, though, that Lego Star Wars will always be there, regardless of whether it has any animated programming to go with it. So there’s nothing to say they have to keep making Freemaker Adventures. Those are the facts, hard as they may be.

The other hard thing is, the season two finale was so fantastic and so perfect, it made me want more! Of course, that’s just a staple of Star Wars… no matter how happy or satisfying the ending is, it’s impossible to not want to know what happens next. And there are so many things I’ve pondered on over the months on what a third season might hold. I want to see the battle of Jakku and the rise of the new Republic, and where the kids were in all of it! We know where Luke’s path ultimately goes, and I want to see how Rowan fits into it. How does that first Master-Apprentice bond look? What is Luke like as a young, optimistic teacher? Do Rowan’s Forcebuilder talents make things more challenging? Does Rowan even need a real master, considering how well he’s done on his own? Meanwhile, what are Zander, Kordi, and Roger doing with their lives? I’m assuming they’re out there doing what they intended, fixing up the newly-freed galaxy, but how exactly are they doing it? How are they using their talents? And are my theories on Becky Smoochenbacher true?? Not to mention the biggest question of mine: what happened to the Freemakers’ mom and dad? And what about any other extended family — aunts, uncles, grandparents? I know they don’t want to go the same route Rebels went with that kind of storyarc, but just some confirmation of what happened, whether it was just an unfortunate accident or something intentional, would be satisfactory. Whether these questions would be answered or not, there are just too many amazing story opportunities! And that means, far as I’m concerned, there are too many amazing reasons to make at least one more season.

Though I’m certainly feeling the show’s absence right now, I’m not without hope for the Freemakers.
First of all, it truly may not have been the series finale. Perhaps with Solo‘s summer release, Lego wasn’t able to release two different series of Star Wars sets at the same time, and so Disney’s pushing it back a year. And you know, Disney XD has pushed back series before. Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero’s first season ran in 2015, and didn’t get a second final season until 2017. I don’t know what caused the delay, but it speaks volumes that Disney did let them finish what they started. So who knows? Maybe The Freemaker Adventures will be back next summer!
And a couple weeks ago, Star Wars announced a new book… a droid encyclopedia with in-universe narration by Roger.
Look how amazing he looks on the cover!!

No one’s said for certain, but to me, this means that Roger is a 100% canon character in the Star Wars universe. I always thought so, but to see it confirmed in a canon reference book? It’s beyond anything I could’ve hoped to see!
It’s a reminder that Lucasfilm knew we loved these characters. They knew we wanted more Freemakers in our lives.
So who’s to say what’s next for this show?

And hey, The Clone Wars came back after a four-year-absence (three if you count the storyreels). I think literally anything is possible 😀

So whether the Freemakers have said goodbye, or if they’re just getting started, I’m happy. Either way, I’ll keep rewatching the reruns and imagining up new adventures of my own! And I definitely look forward to finally reading Roger’s first published book this fall… and for all the new Star Wars stories to come 🙂

The One Where Twilight Fangirls Over Solo, Part 3

Let’s see… I’ve poured out my fangirly thoughts on HanXQi’ra and a handful of the new characters… what shall I talk about next? Yeah I really wish I’d gotten the chance to watch Solo again so I could stir up more discussion topics, but time has not been my friend lately. That’s why I’ve decided this will be the last post in this particular series. It won’t be the last time I talk about Solo for sure, but I think it’ll be time to shift gears from here. Anyway, how about I just fill the post with some assorted fangirl musings? Sounds good? Then let’s go!

Contains spoilers from Solo and some important elements from The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. Also, please remember I have only seen the film once at this point, so there is a chance I may have misremembered some elements.

As I’ve discussed heavily in the last two posts, Solo was absolutely loaded with surprises. It’s one of my favorite things about the film! And among my favorite surprises were the Easter eggs and the nods to other Star Wars stories. I’m sure I missed a few, but the ones I picked up on had me smilin’! Glee Anselm, Scarif, Bossk, Aurra Sing! I knew those names! It made my Star Wars-nerdy self explode with glee! Especially with things that nodded back to the Prequels and animated series. I’m not clear if The Pikes they mentioned had any relation to the ones in TCW, but either way, it’s something special seeing elements from all ends of the SW galaxy come together like this. I mean, actually getting to see Glee Anselm for the first time was a treat for me. And though I feel bad for whatever went down with Beckett vs. Aurra, it sounds like there’s a good story there, anyway. Oh, and funny story: you know that set of ancient Mandalorian armor in Dryden Vos’s office? I spent like five minutes staring at it thinking there was someone in the suit, asking myself “Boba Fett? Is that you…?” XD It’s all these little things that just fill me with joy and remind me of the supreme storytelling skills going on at Lucasfilm!

And speaking of surprises, I feel bad I didn’t end up writing on Enfys Nest last post. Once again, these new characters go so far beyond their appearances and first impressions! Of course, that’s true for the majority of SW characters, old and new alike. But I certainly did not expect the nefarious-looking Enfys Nest to be a young girl Rebel! There’s a lot we still don’t know about her, but she’s obviously an epic heroine and I think there could be some epic novels and comics about her to follow. And hopefully I’ll have much more to write on her then 🙂

And you know how I wrote on my Last Jedi post about how every Star Wars something has that one moment that you never forget your reaction to? With Solo, that scene is the one near the end where we meet Qi’ra’s real boss. The exact sound I made was a loud, choking gasp with a slight squee mixed in. True, in part, this was because I briefly forgot where in the SW timeline the film takes place, and my first reaction was “BUT MAUL IS DEAD!!“. But then I remembered this all took place some years before Rebels, and I then geeked out over his appearance for the rest of the day. I can only imagine how confusing and fascinating it must be for those who haven’t been keeping up with the animated series. If you happen to be one of those people, go right now to Netflix and watch some Clone Wars! I recommend maybe some early season one and two episodes first, just to get acquainted, and then go over to season four and start with Nightsisters and then keep going from there. And once you’ve finished that, grab a few early episodes of Rebels on DisneyNow or iTunes or something and then come back to the Maul story with Twilight Of The Apprentice. If this all sounds complicated to you, just watch all the episodes of both shows, period. You won’t be sorry, I don’t think! 😀 Then you’ll have at least a little idea of what’s going on here.
Anyway, back on the subject. It was too amazing to hear Sam Witwer’s voice and see Ray Park’s face again in Star Wars. Maul just looks truly magnificent and as terrifying as ever! And with this small scene, they opened up an entire new angle to the former Darth’s story that I absolutely need to know more about! And like with the smaller Easter eggs, seeing this amazing story that was fleshed out in the animated series having a pretty huge connection to the events in this film… wow. There are no words. And it wasn’t just a this-would-be-really-cool cameo! This seems to be a major part of Qi’ra’s next chapter! And Maul’s too, as he continues on his tireless quest for power and purpose. You guys, this is one of the reasons I love Star Wars so much. It’s a big, big galaxy, but nothing is there without real thought and consideration.

So with that being said, there are still so many reasons to love Solo and Star Wars in general! What the next post will be about, I don’t yet know, but I look forward to sharing something with you sometime next week!

The One Where Twilight Fangirls Over Solo, Part 2

Yay the blog is back! Today, I’m continuing my series of posts of all the things I loved about Solo: A Star Wars Story, today I’ll be writing on the amazing new crew of characters we meet, and how they all exceeded every expectation I had! You can read the first part all about Han and Qi’ra here. Now where do I possibly begin…?

Contains spoilers from Solo and a vague element from Episode VIII. Also, please remember I have only seen the film once at this point, so there is a chance I may have misremembered some elements.

There is much I could say on reuniting with Han, Chewbacca, and Lando, especially since I’ve known them quite a while. And I certainly will do some more writing on them in the future. But right now, I feel I need to give some of the newbies the spotlight! Because wow do they ever deserve it!

I don’t know why, but I really didn’t expect to love these new scoundrel-sorts as much as I did. It’s not that I thought I wouldn’t like them, of course. Star Wars has this great habit of making truly amazing characters, and I have yet to meet one I genuinely don’t like (or absolutely love). And I already did like them from what I saw in the trailers and spots, but I suppose the whole “criminal underworld” vibe of the film got me assuming everyone very well could be a traitor, and even if they weren’t all traitors, they could still be cold-blooded, out-for-themselves, and not looking for friends. Perhaps other darker areas of Star Wars lore have made me a suspicious Sally. So I was expecting these characters to be cool, but I didn’t expect to become attached to them so quickly. Or that they’d make me laugh so hard… and cry so hard. These seemingly-gritty, hardened criminals were about to each make my ever-expanding favorite character list in a way I never anticipated!

Perhaps the biggest way they shot down my assumptions has to do with Tobias Beckett and his crew. Because of Beckett’s “assume everyone will betray you” advice, I figured he wouldn’t be one with a lot of friends. I expected his crew to be a loosely-knit group of criminal business partners who would be quick to betray your trust if large amounts of creds were involved. Instead, what I saw was something more of a thicker-than-blood family, with a mom and a dad and a goofball grown son! Throw in Han as the little brother and Chewie as the uncle, and suddenly all these plans for a train heist felt more like plans for a family road trip. Beckett, Val, and Rio were all tough customers, that I wasn’t wrong about, but these tough customers also were genuinely looking out for each other. They’d shared good times and bad times, and somehow maintained a sense of loyalty and a sense of humor through it all. Though we don’t know Val long, the sweet old-married-couple relationship she and Beckett have spoke volumes about both individuals, and who they really were at heart, beyond their jaded, scoundrel-y exteriors. And Rio? Oh my gravy I loved that guy! He was so fun, and Jon Favreau was a delight in the role! The witty pilot was among the film’s best-kept secrets. Understandably, because we don’t know him long either, but he just lit up the room every scene he was in. We need him in some more Star Wars stories, OK? ‘Cause boy do I miss him. Together, Val and Rio brought out the best in Beckett, making him incredibly relatable, and revealing what a truly intriguing, complex individual he is. And the somewhat-fatherly role he takes on with Han was neat to watch as well. I honestly didn’t see it coming when he ended up being the traitor among the newbies. But that only served to make him an even more fascinating character to me. I’m seriously still reeling from how great all this writing is!

Of all the new characters, L3-37 was probably the one I was most excited to meet, but she still went far, far beyond what I expected. She was not just a wonderfully brash, mouthy, and witty sidekick, L3 was, like all the characters in this film, a truly complex person. And that’s what surprised me a little! Though I’ve always known the droids we know best in Star Wars as thinking, feeling beings, the sheer range of L3’s emotions and the naturalness of her thought processes blew my mind. We see her absolutely distressed over droidfights, overjoyed at finding purpose in starting a rebellion, and even contemplating the complexities of romance while chatting with Qi’ra about their boys! (I know I died laughing in that scene, how about you?) Droids with endless amounts of personality are nothing new, and I certainly wouldn’t say droids like Artoo, BB-8, and Chopper are lacking in any way, but there’s something outstandingly different with L3-37, and I adore it to absolute pieces! She’s certainly made me look at droids in a whole new light, especially as I’ve always been fascinated with droid psychology and what free will means to them. And also, her friendship with Lando was so delightful and so precious, I really need to see more of them. But either way, I’m glad she’s still around in the Falcon! I’m sure she’s got some opinions on all those porgs nesting in the wiring XP

Anyway, that’s the story of how a bunch of rough-and-tough scoundrel-y types I didn’t know what to think of at first became absolute favorites. I’ll share more of my Solo faves sometime in the next week or so!

The One Where Twilight Fangirls Over Solo, Part 1

If you didn’t see the brief post I made on tumblr a few weeks back, I absolutely adored Solo: A Star Wars Story. It’s so thrilling, so fun, so spirited! And though one of the most lighthearted SW films to date, it’s certainly not without some serious drama and feels. It’s everything I love about Star Wars and brings me oh-so-much joy! Unsurprisingly, I have a lot I want to write about. But I want to pace myself this time and not try to get everything out in a single post. So I’ll be talking about Solo in four small parts over the next month or so (maybe with other posts in between). If this works out well, I may continue to try and write shorter-length posts like this in the future. Now, we shall begin the Corellian conversation with this week’s topic: the surprisingly sweet story of Han and Qi’ra!

Contains spoilers from Solo and Episode IV. Also, please remember I have only seen the film once at this point, so there is a chance I may have misremembered some elements.

Going into Solo, I knew Qi’ra would surely be an awesome character. Her taste in jackets alone made that clear. But truth be told… I wasn’t expecting her relationship with Han to be much more than “cute for the moment”. You just can’t top Han and Leia! I assumed Han and Qi’ra would be a rather fleeting, here-one-minute-and-gone-the-next sort of relationship. Honestly, I would’ve expected that kind of thing with Han prior to the meeting at Mos Eisley. I also kinda figured that Qi’ra might be far from reputable, and someone who was very obviously Leia’s opposite, and obviously not the best match for Han. Kind of like comparing Willie to Marion in the Indiana Jones films (not that Qi’ra and Willie are anything alike, of course). Either way, I was convinced going into it that their relationship was just meant to be a lesson learned; a part of Han’s story, but not by any means a major chapter.
Boy was I wrong. So so wrong. But like I say often on this blog, I’m so so glad to be wrong!

Han and Qi’ra were childhood friends, surviving the mean streets of Corellia together, and from the first few minutes with them in the film, you can see their bond is as rock-solid as it gets. And downright precious! I’d always thought that Han was a bit of a player, but that is absolutely not the case here. Even at this early point in the film, it’s pretty clear he’s convinced she’s the one, period. Watching his reaction when they’re separated in their escape utterly breaks my heart, and speaks volumes upon volumes about how much he cares for her. And every moment with them in the film beyond that is filled with a really special kind of sweetness that I really did not expect to see in a before-Leia love story. It put that amazingly dedicated, loving side of Han back in the spotlight, and simultaneously blew my mind and warmed my heart. I certainly was a bit teary-eyed when they said their goodbyes at the end…

Does this mean I’ve come to love HanXQi’ra more than HanXLeia? No. Both love stories are great, almost equally so. But clearly, there is something stronger and more lasting in what Han and Leia have. I wish I could give more evidence for my argument, but I might need to rewatch Solo, the Originals, and VII again. And read more of the new novels and comics. And honestly, even if I did all that, there are still many stories inside of both relationships we don’t know. Maybe at some point I’ll write some comparisons and contrasts on the two pairs, but the goal of this particular post is simply to celebrate how unexpectedly great Han and Qi’ra’s story ended up being, and how very much it delighted me, a somewhat-skeptical, highly-dedicated HanXLeia fangirl. It’s just another stellar example of the storytelling mastery inside of the Star Wars universe! ❤

We'll talk more Solo soon!

The Last Jedi Awards!

All right, first post of the new year! Excitement!!

Episode VIII was great, that’s no question, and it left us with an infinite amount of stuff to discuss. The last couple years I’ve had trouble finding the right time to discuss VII and Rogue One, but this year I took notes soon as I arrived home from the theater! But like say, I still had too many thoughts to make a coherent post out of, so I decided to do a little “awards show” of sorts to celebrate some of my favorite things and pinpoint some of the most intriguing things. I’ll admit I’ve only seen the film once at this point, so I may’ve misremembered some stuff, but I will do my best as I highlight the moments, characters, and events that made The Last Jedi so wonderful!

Contains spoilers from Rebels episode The Holocrons Of Fate, Episode VII, and Episode VIII. Seriously. These are big spoilers.

BEST TIME SPENT GETTING TO FURTHER KNOW A CHARACTER:
POE DAMERON

Episode VII introduced us to Poe Dameron almost right off the bat, and though he only was in a handful of scenes, it was impossible not to love the guy. A talented, fearless pilot with a quick wit and a heart of gold who clearly valued his friends and could easily make new ones. I had no idea we’d get to spend as much time with him in VIII as we did, but I loved it. to. pieces. We got to see a little more edge with him than before as he proved himself a bit more of a “dangerous flyboy” than I’d thought, but all the same it made it clear how much he believed in bringing the fight to the First Order and doing the right thing, even when he was mistaken on a couple matters. And I loved seeing more of his epic piloting skills, watching him take charge in new ways, and laughing my head off as he threw jabs at General Hux XD But what I enjoyed most, perhaps, was seeing him further his new friendships with Finn and Rose. Together they made such a great squad I couldn’t help but want to be friends with ’em! Oh, and can’t forget his best buddyship with BB-8! My favorite line in the film just might be “Finn! Rose! You’re not dead! Where’s my droid?”. Sorry but BB-8 was his BFF first XP I remember after first seeing Force Awakens, misremembering Poe and BB-8’s reunion and thinking the pilot had joyfully hugged his ‘mech upon reuniting, not just kneeling down and patting his dome. This time we actually got something close to a hug and it made me so happy because I would do the same. Hehe I’m so glad Poe and I think alike 🙂 But yes I’m so so glad we got to spend so much time with him this chapter! He’s become even more of a favorite than before!

BEST TIME GETTING TO REUNITE WITH A CHARACTER:
LUKE SKYWALKER

I’ve been waiting to see (and hear) Master Luke for a long time now. Or at least it feels like a long time. You guys know what I’m talking about. I even remember dreaming a while ago that VIII would open somewhat like Phantom Menace, with the master and apprentice on a secret mission. But even with some questions answered with the trailers, there was still so much I didn’t know. So, like you most likely, I found myself holding my breath as Luke took the hilt from Rey…
And then in a matter of seconds, I died laughing. Completely died XD
Luke was truly amazing in this film. So was Mark Hamill. At times he brought a warm familiarity that felt true to the farmboy we met forty years ago (or in my case, ten years ago), and at other times, we saw the scars of misunderstandings and fear and tragedy that opened up a new, intriguing angle on Luke as well as the whole Skywalker saga itself. I loved watching him take on the role of a master, not just because of what his perspective on the Force could offer, but because of the interesting fact he really was hesitant just about the whole time. Something I’ve never quite exactly seen in all the master-apprentice relationships we’ve seen in Star Wars. Sure, a lot of the masters we’ve followed have been uncertain at first, but they usually got past that after a little while and master and apprentice became best friends. Perhaps it was because Luke and Rey didn’t have as much time together as some, but it made for an intriguing situation, especially as Rey found herself walking into things she didn’t understand without much guidance or warning. Yet at the same time, there was still some warmth and fun to it that also felt familiar but unique. Yes, in the course of these precious two-and-a-half hours Luke got me all kinds of nostalgic, got me thinking mile-deep thoughts, got me nodding my head thinking “oh yeah that’s how you do it good sir” as he used the Force, got me laughing out loud, and of course, got me a little weepy. Especially when we said goodbye. But it was not a tragic goodbye, it was a peaceful one, and for that I am thankful. OK I have no clue if anything I wrote the last couple paragraphs made sense, but getting to better know this amazing Jedi, teacher, and brother was far more exciting and wonderful than I could’ve anticipated.

CHARACTER WHO MOST DESERVES AN ANTHOLOGY MOVIE:
MAZ KANATA

Perhaps a bit of a controversial choice, because there are a lot of characters who could use one (or two, or a trilogy…). But in the few minutes we spent with the Pirate Queen, we got a taste of some serious adventure that I definitely want to see more of. Yeah I wasn’t totally sure we’d see her in the film at all, so I’m happy either way whether Maz gets her own movie or not 🙂 *Cough* at least let’s get a novel ok?

BEST TIME GETTING TO KNOW A NEW CHARACTER:
ROSE TICO

I already had a feeling Rose was gonna be great just from how wonderful Kelly Marie Tran was at Celebration Orlando. Once again, could not have predicted just how great. She made the favorite character list pretty quickly, especially as she went from playing the fangirl to giving Finn a good zapping XD I love her spunk and drive but also how much she cares for her friends and family and doing the right thing. She’s definitely one of the most relatable SW characters to me, which is probably why I came out as her on the starwars.com personality quiz. And at the same time she has a lot of admirable qualities that I could only hope to possess. She just fits so so well into the SW universe and brought some serious sunshine to the dark times. It’s impossible not to adore her! Alsooooo she and Finn are kinda cute together I’ll admit… :3

BEST SURPRISE GUEST:
YODA

After seeing VII, I started to come up with little stories about the Force ghost crew visiting Luke on Ach-To (and usually driving him nuts XP). But I never expected to actually see one of these great Jedi in the next chapter. So when I saw those pointy ears… I let loose a whisper-squee-scream of pure happiness that probably would’ve been much louder if I wasn’t well-aware of all the people in the theater I’d disturb doing so. Yoda was so perfect and hilarious and just the right amount of not-too-serious-but-still-so-ridiculously-wise-and-epically-powerful! And I had no idea just what Jedi are capable of after they take on immortality. I mean, wow! And having rewatched V and VI only a few days before, seeing Luke and Yoda together again in this time was too amazing and threw nostalgia feels all over me. I’m amazed Lucasfilm managed to keep this a secret, but it was just about the best reveal ever 😀 “Page turners they are not”, but always a delight, Yoda is!

BEST NEW CREATURE (ASIDE FROM PORGS):
FATHIERS

Perhaps the other best-kept secret in the film was these amazing giraffe-llama-rabbit-horses. These graceful, sweet-natured giants stole my heart pretty quickly, and watching Rose and Finn set ’em free got me all gooey inside. Sooo can we get some of these in another film or show? At least maybe The Freemaker Adventures? ‘Cause I need more fathiers. Second place goes to the vulptices but only because they’re not in the film quite as much but I love them the same anyway.

BIGGEST “OMGWHAT” MOMENT:
LEIA’S CLOSE CALL

Every Star Wars story has that one moment you can’t forget your reaction. Sometimes it’s a reaction of joy, sometimes it’s a moment of sadness… this one was a moment of complete shock. The moment in the trailer between Kylo and Leia itself was terrifying enough. AND THEN they pull the rug out from under you, and you watch as a different TIE takes the shot… my jaw was on the floor and all I could think was “Nonononono did that just happen?! This can’t be the way General Organa goes!”. And I probably missed some other important dialogue in-between because those two thoughts were on repeat in my head. I don’t think any of us are truly ever ready to say goodbye to a character in SW, but I really really wasn’t ready for Leia to go. I was so completely relieved that wasn’t how she was gonna go. Watching her use the Force so masterfully was all at once amazing and surreal and “WHOA”. And it’s especially intriguing because even though we’ve seen Kanan do something similar in The Holocrons Of Fate, the stakes were even higher for Leia here. So it begs the question if the situation demanded a stronger knowledge of the Force to perform, or if it’s just something the Chosen One’s children naturally possess. There are a lot of questions here, but that’s one thing I love so much about this movie: it says to us fans “Oh so you think you know everything there is to know about the Force? Well guess what? YOU DON’T!” and that is a-ok with me. So yeah I was thankful I could breathe again… at least for a little while before the next OMGWHAT moment. And this chapter of the saga had a lot of those…

COOLEST NEW CRAFT:
SKI SPEEDERS

I’ve loved these things from day one and that’s a fact. They’re so quintessentially Star Wars-y yet so unique and quirky and fast and I really just couldn’t help but adore them. OK so maybe Poe and I don’t always think alike, but I want to take a spin on one of these oldies all the same 🙂

COOLEST NEW WORLD:
ALL OF THE ABOVE

Seriously, I can’t pick one. Every SW film promises new incredible, exciting places to see, and Last Jedi supremely delivered. The amazing picturesque natural beauty of Ach-To! The rough, surreal-but-magnificent white-and-red landscape of Crait! Even the less-than-reputable world of Canto Bight captured my attention with its eclectic Mos Eisley Cantina-style cast of characters and all that cray amount of glitz and glam. Each world served the story perfectly and was as interesting as they were eye-catching and make me want to come back, even though I know IX will surely bring a lot of exciting new places of its own…

And that’s just scratching the surface of things that have consumed my mind the last three weeks, and hopefully we’ll find time to discuss further stuff another day. But OMG yes I love this chapter of the saga so so much. I love the camaraderie, the teamwork, the unsolved mysteries, the unexpected twists, the one-liners, everything BB-8 does, the way it blows my mind, the way it shook me to my core, that wonderful Star Wars feel, and the wonderfully hopeful ending that caps it off better than I could’ve hoped. IX seems so so far away now… but I’m glad there’s still so much Star Wars to come until then :3
