The Celebration Orlando 2017 Post!

First of all, I apologize for not having finished my SWR season recap post this past week like I said I would. Stuff came up. But right now, the biggest, most important thing to talk about is CELEBRATION! A time of year I look forward to as much as Christmas and my own birthday! There’s so much awesome stuff to talk about, so I’ll update this with every exciting panel I see so I can share my fangirling with all of you!
NOTE: There will be spoilers depending on the panel I’m discussing.

40 YEARS OF STAR WARS
They kicked this thing off with a bang that would rival the destruction of the two Death Stars and Starkiller base combined! Every time I turned around they brought out a guest worth screaming about! To see the master himself, George Lucas, there… oh my gosh I screamed so loud. And then followed that up each time afterward. This was a hugely special panel for so many reasons. One for me was that, I honestly haven’t watched many of the bonus features (don’t always have the time sigh), and I hadn’t seen a number of the actors and filmmakers interviewed before this. It was a marvelous first time! I’m not gonna lie I cried a lot too. That opening video hit me like a boulder-dozer of feels! And oh that dedication to Carrie Fisher… and then the awe-inspiring surprise John Williams performance! Every minute was precious and stunning and wonderful I absolutely can’t! I can only imagine where Celebration goes from here!

Assorted Fangirl Musings
– Ian McDiarmid always looks so young to me. He’s just amazing.
– Hayden Christiansen still is so much Anakin it’s incredible. I’ve missed seeing his face around here something awful!
– On that note, I was so glad to hear briefly from Qui-Gon and Mace! Er… Liam Neeson and Samuel L. Jackson, I mean. To know they still remember and value their time spent in the films and appreciate the fans is utterly heart-warming.
– Also, something about the image of a darksider Jar Jar Binks is actually really epic.
– Hearing the stories of how George and the original cast met was an absolute treat in every way possible.
– Mark Hamill’s original audition video is incredible. HIS ACTING, YOU GUYS. IT’S SUBLIME. EVEN WAY BACK WHEN ON AN AUDITION TAPE.
– Somehow I’d forgotten how tall Peter Mayhew was and now I doubt I’ll ever forget.
– I adore Anthony Daniels. I know that’s a no-brainer but, again, seeing these actors outside of the films and hearing them tell their stories of making them… it’s… words can barely describe.
– Also first time seeing Billy Dee Williams interviewed I think ever. He’s still the smoothest! πŸ˜€
– When the Harrison Ford showed up… I think everything in me exploded. I had no idea he’d never been to a Celebration prior, so that made it all the more special.
– His seamless Indiana Jones drop cracked me up. HE IS SUCH A DELIGHT OMG!
– Safe to say Carrie’s daughter has one of the best dresses ever. Her speech was beautiful.
– Like I said before, the dedication video was so moving and so special… when they started showing all the little girls in Leia costumes I think I really started weeping. In a good way though.
– And again, a standing ovation almost doesn’t seem good enough for John Williams. If I could fly or hover and applaud, I would. Same for the spectacular work done by the orchestra! Like wow! Made me want to go and buy all the soundtracks I haven’t yet bought right now.
– I clapped ’til my hands were numb, man. But that’s normal πŸ™‚

SIDESTORY: FORCES OF DESTINY ANNOUNCEMENT
Just read the article on the new Forces Of Destiny microseries and product line and I’m excited. New animated shorts starring the bossladies of the Star Wars galaxy! How great is that?! I love the character designs and style, and since they’re all canon, it’s useless to resist! It’s really nice seeing them trying a line specifically aimed at girls. Star Wars has never been short on awesome female characters, and certainly never short on female fans (such as myself), and it’s not that it was a need, by any means (I’m always going to be mainly a 3.75 collector myself), but just imagine how many young girls might be further drawn into the saga on part of these new stories and merch? These princesses, Jedi, and rebels are about to draw in a whole new generation to the fangirl side of the Force, and that’s something to get excited about! πŸ˜€

DAVE FILONI: ANIMATED ORIGINS AND UNEXPECTED FATES
You know me, I could never turn down an opportunity to hang with Dave and Pablo! I absolutely loved digging into the origins of so many great characters and stories that we’ve seen told this last near-decade. I’m gonna be honest I was only able to watch this via livestream and was disgusted I couldn’t see the beautiful art and storyreel footage. But even so, it was nothing short of a fantastic panel with two of my favorite filmmakers. Bro I could listen to their stories for days. And naturally, this all got me really hyped for what we’re going to see Saturday…

Assorted Fangirl Musings
– Those Clones and Rebel cosplayers that came up early on? They were astounding. The Hondo was so perfect it was like he was real. The young Rex and S3 Ezra were perfect too. Like wow man. Much applause.
– I love that Ahsoka was almost Ashla! Who’da thunk? Just a neat little connection.
– I’m ecstatic to hear Wolffe and Gregor might be back! Also the Nine Old Men thing warmed my little heart. I would’ve loved to have seen that :3
– These stories are literally so amazing. We almost had Savage and Satine in Rebels! I understand why they didn’t go that route ultimately, but wow what an image! I’ll never watch the opening of Twin Suns again without seeing that in my mind’s eye.
– I about cried at my inability to see the images everyone was fangasming over tho…
– Hehe everyone going Kanera-crazy cracked me up. But also yeah that sounds like an utterly beautiful scene. The idea Kanan, Hera, and Zeb were all processing the kids growing up and leaving home… such family feels!
– Though I couldn’t see the Bane-Boba showdown, it sounded beyond epic. Corey Burton and Daniel Logan are just incredible, and the whole prospect just made me ravenous for more on their characters’ stories.
– ALSOOO the fact that Durge almost made it into TCW is epic. I almost forgot to mention that.

IAN MCDIARMID: TALES FROM THE DARK SIDE
So Mr. McDiarmid was wonderful, that’s an understatement. Again, I haven’t seen a lot of interviews and behind-the-scenes stuff with him, so everything about this was a fantastic new experience. Definitely gained a lot lot more respect for the Senator/Chancellor/Emperor/Darth and Ian’s stellar acting skills. Watching the scene between Anakin and Palpatine at the opera (or as I nicknamed it, the fish ballet) again left me kind of breathless at the perfection of his performance (and Hayden’s too!). Also have to say I love listening to Ian not only because of the fascinating stories he was telling, but also because his voice is amazing. So smooth and so well-spoken and articulate! Which is why it was spectacular and spine-chilling to hear him do that Emperor laugh! An absolute blast of a panel all around! It’s tempting to drop everything right now and watch Episode III again, but the day’s not over…!

RAY PARK: PREPARE TO BE MAULED
Once again, Ray Park proves to be one of the greatest human beings to ever live. His stunts and sweet moves never fail to leave me in awe, and he’s every bit as much a nice guy as Maul is a bad guy πŸ˜€ He and Warwick made this panel nothing short of an absolute blast. I loved hearing his stories from working on set (and making lightsaber noises with Mr. Neeson and Mr. McGregor!), watching him performing stunts like an absolute blazing tornado of energy, teaching lightsaber techniques to the fans… oh and I smiled so hard when he mentioned he was a huge Toy Story fan! He’s seriously just so so great. After seeing him at last year’s Celebration I’ve learned his panels are ones you should never miss.

THE LAST JEDI
OMG THIS PANEL WAS EVERYTHING AND MORE. Josh Gad was a brilliant host, Rian Johnson clearly’s a brilliant director, and there’s so so much to get hyped about! And that TEASER! It left me reeling in the best way. It’s a long way to Alderaan, and by “Alderaan” I mean December, but this helped just the slightest bit with the wait πŸ™‚ Allow me to elaborate further in my assorted fangirl musings:

Assorted Fangirl Musings
– Josh Gad is just like us and I love that.
– Like say, so much love for Mr. Johnson, and Ms. Kennedy too!
– OK so y’know I didn’t get to see The Force Awakens panel two years ago, so this is some of the first BTS stuff I’ve seen with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. And now I love them more than ever, and I didn’t think it was possible for me to love them more!
– I’m amazed Daisy could keep a straight face with Josh asking her questions like that. Nahhh Rey’s parents are probably just an average Joe and Jane, right…? XP
– John is promising more Finn and Poe adventures! Sounds good to me! *Imagines Finn and Poe in “The Boys Are Back” number in High School Musical 3* XD
– BB-8 IS HERE AND HE’S REAL! OK I already knew that they’ve got a functioning BB out there, but just seeing him here… it’s incredible. I’m amazed he was not utterly mobbed by hugging fans! I loved watching him get snippy with Josh. That was just perfect!
– Kelly Marie Tran is just a delight you guys. I absolutely can’t wait to meet Rose now!
– MARK HAMILL AGAIN! He’s still so fantastic and his stories are some of the best ever. Hearing him talk about visiting kids in hospitals and making a difference for them made me tear up.
– WOW THAT POSTER! It’s so dynamic and kind of retro and full of fantastic symbolism! I could look at it forever.
– AND THE TEASER. “Breathe… just breathe” NO I CAN’T BREATHE, LUKE!! THIS IS TOO AMAZING!!
– I won’t elaborate on it too long (I’ll save that analyzing for the next trailer), but a few pressing things on my mind…
– A) Luke and Rey seem to be all #MasterAndApprenticeGoals even if Daisy hinted her first meeting with Master Skywalker will be a little… different…
– B) Meanwhile, Poe and BB-8 are all #FriendshipGoals
– C) EVERYTHANG IS SO BEAUTIFUL OMGOODNESSGRACIOUS!
– D) Huh I thought Kylo lost that lightsaber in the fight on Starkiller Base. Did he have to build a new one (which must be hard since it’s a pretty ancient model) or did he just have an extra in his sock drawer?
– E) Biggest thing of all: “It’s time for the Jedi… to end…” WHAT.
– WAHT.
– WHAT DOES IT MEAN….?!
– Is he talking about the Jedi as a group needing to end, so they can be something different, something more? Or is he just kinda blue and done with the Force right now? I’m going with the first option for now, but you can bet this line will consume me from the inside out until one December weekend…
AHHHHHH I LOVE STAR WARS SO MUCHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

HEROINES OF STAR WARS
So having Ahsoka, Sabine, and Rey in the same room was amazing, and with Dave, too! They kicked off the panel with the best video montage of the many many bossladies in the Star Wars galaxy and made me cry a little just with that. It was really cool just hearing their stories as well as their perspective on the depiction of strong female characters. I could honestly go on a while on the topic myself, but for now I’ll just say once again that I’m super pumped for Forces Of Destiny and for all the bossladyness that awaits us in the future of SW (like Rose!). Also two other notes: a) I seriously love the FoD Ahsoka doll and I might have to get that even though my main collecting focus is on the 3.75s. And then b) I cracked up at the original game plan for Out Of Darkness with Hera and Sabine talking about the boys XD Pff that would’ve been kinda terrible if we’d missed out on the emotional journey that episode centered around. Not that I’m adverse to future conversations tho… *COUGHKaneraCOUGHSabezraCOUGH* But yeah! Who runs the galaxy? Star Wars girls! They’re the reason I started throwing around the term “bosslady”! πŸ™‚

MARK HAMILL’S TRIBUTE TO CARRIE FISHER
I’m not sure I can say anything that hasn’t already been said… it was equal parts heartbreaking and heartwarming. Mark is so so good, so articulate, and poured out his heart so well on this. Like say, prior to this, I haven’t taken the time to watch the featurettes and interviews that would help me know the amazing people behind these characters more, and the time spent listening to Mr. Hamill, Mr. Davis, and old interview pieces from Carrie… they were really something special. I’d always sort of known that Carrie was a firecracker, but I had no idea just how much until now. You know, as I write this, I was listening to my TCW soundtrack and the track I ended up on right now was #11, “Death Of A Master”. It obviously wasn’t written for her, but this gripping, powerful piece of music really suits my emotional state. And she was a master, you know? Not of the Force, but of brilliant acting and a stellar sense of humor. She’s a princess, a senator, a general, and also an absolute master. That’s all I got man the feels are really feelsy right now…

STAR WARS REBELS
OK WOW. I HAVE NO WORDS. WHICH IS REALLY BAD SINCE I’M WRITING A BLOG. I’M UTTERLY SOBBING AND CAN’T STOP APPLAUDING YOU GUYS.
It breaks my heart kinda to know this will be the last season, but I have complete confidence they’ll end it right. And whatever they have in store next will be fantastic. I didn’t need the trailer for proof, but it certainly was great to see regardless. Yeah this won’t make it hard for me to focus on that Season 3 recap post later! πŸ˜› I adored seeing all the cast and Filoni together again, and knowing we’re coming up on the end makes it all the more a precious moment. They’re a beautiful family… both the Ghost crew and the people behind them.

Assorted Fangirl Musings
– Dave talking about Obi-Wan and Maul gave me such feels again.
– Freddie Prinze Jr. utterly killed it in his thoughts on Kanan and Ezra. So brilliantly said!
– “Hot Kallus”?? That was a thing?! Pfff that cracked me up. He’s always been a pretty good-lookin’ dude! why’s the internet just noticing now? XD He’s looking even better than ever in the trailer, though, and I can’t wait to see him full-on Rebellin’! Also I hope we get an entire episode dedicated to watching Ezra, Zeb, and Kallus play video games like the bros they are jk.
– Also you guys how great is it that Warwick Davis is gonna be in this season?! The guy’s such a marvelous talent and a has a fantastic voice, I’m so so glad he’s getting in animated Star Wars already! And playing such a delightfully creepy character to boot!
– More Mandos yaaaaaas!
– Speaking of, that girl cosplaying as Ursa Wren was amazing. I mean… that episode came out only a few months ago! How did she do it??
– Also mad props to the Gregor cosplay, too. I love seeing people who don’t just want to don the armor suits, but become that character even without the helmet on πŸ™‚
– Like say that trailer… on the second viewing I buried my hands in my face and wept. Vanessa Marshall’s narration… my gosh. It sets the stage so perfectly and just overwhelms me with emotions and nostalgia.
– Glad to know that we’re going to see the giant wolves I spotted in the artwork on An Inside Man.
– OK it’s so tempting right now to do a complete recap of the trailer but I don’t think I’ve got the right words to say yet. I will say a few words tho:
– A) WOW WE’RE BACK ON LOTHAL YES! I’ve been all giddy about seeing Yavin but so much of the action we’ve seen is on the world where it all began. NO I’M NOT CRYING YOU ARE.
– B) KANERA. THAT IS ALL. I GOT IT OUT OF MY SYSTEM. NO I HAVEN’T I’M CRYING HARDER NOW.
– C) Sorry I shouldn’t be writing every thought in all caps, but WAIT WAIT WAIT IS THAT BO-KATAN OR AM I COMPLETELY MISTAKEN?
– D) Final note I CAN’T WAIT FOR EVERYTHING OMG.

SMUGGLER’S REVENGE
This was definitely one of the most anticipated panels for me. I didn’t see (or hear, rather) the first one, but I adored the second one, so I was absolutely hyped to experience another one of Kyle Newman’s glorious Star Wars audio stories! The writing is stellar and so perfectly Star Wars, the acting beyond sublime, the sounds well-timed, and oh my gosh Han and Leia banter for days! It’s funny, I kept trying to close my eyes and just listen to the performance, but David Collins and Catherine Taber were so fun to watch as well as listen to! The acting is just so wow in all ways. Everyone just did so so incredibly. David is a perfect Han, and I had no idea Tom Kane was such a masterful C-3PO! I highly look forward to whatever Mr. Newman might be planning in the future! Final thought: MATTHEW WOOD’S WILLHEM SCREAM WAS THE BEST XD

Honestly you guys there are just too many amazing things to mention, it was just an incredibly bountifully joyful weekend of Star Wars. The fandom feels are running through me like electricity right now! It’s an absolute rush! I know I’ll be counting the days ’til next year πŸ˜€

Keep The Peace,

My Star Wars Twin? Looking @ The Myers Briggs Test

So last week I was listening to one of my fave radio shows and they had found something that I could not wait to blog on: a Star Wars version of the Myers Briggs Test! After laughing at the show’s (guy) host being most like Leia, I looked at the chart for myself and thought “who here is my Star Wars twin?”
OK, so I’ll be honest, I really don’t entirely understand how this test works. But just reading the descriptions of each character told me that well… forget a SW twin, I have SW octuplets! I somehow ended up being the entire two middle rows. I do have a bit of a diverse personality. So I thought it would be interesting to dig into each character I felt was a bit like me and how I relate to them.
NOTE: Contains spoilers from Episode I, Episode II, Episode III, Episode IV, Episode VI, the Clone Wars Miniseries, and TCW episodes Blue Shadow Virus and The Gungan General.

C-3PO: The Protector
SW_MBT1_C3PO
So when I was reading through the descriptions for each character, I may have cringed a little bit when I read Threepio’s bio. Mostly because I was thinking “WAIT. I’M MOST LIKE THREEPIO?!” And nothing against the golden droid, but he’s not known for being the most fun guy in the room or anything. But yet, I still see that Threepio and I have more in common than I would’ve thought.
First of all, I can be terrified by new and seemingly-dangerous experiences. Remember in Episode I where he was all “Well, I can promise you that they’ll never get me on one of those starships!”? And remember how we all chuckle at that line because of how ironic it is? Like Threepio, I prefer the comforts of the familiar most of the time. I admit that I’m not the most adventurous person on the planet. I can’t even begin to imagine being in the shoes of any of theΒ SW characters!
As it mentions in his description, I do keep track of what’s important to the awesome family and friends in my life. I’ve never thought of Threepio as a thoughtful sort, but then again… remember that part in the Clone Wars miniseries when he had no problem fetching Padme’s shawl, even though it turned out to be Padme’s own clever way of revealing the camoflauged droideka-things? Threepio was all “I MUST BE OUT OF MY CIRCUITS.” and he nearly got blasted to bits just being helpful to his friend. I guess he does have a bit of a soft side after all πŸ™‚
Now, sometimes when I’m with friends, I’m even less adventurous. My friends all eat out of the same bowl of frozen yogurt for a crazy scavenger hunt and I opt out of joining them due to my germophobia. I sometimes feel like a Threepio surrounded by Artoos, shall we say. I just don’t want to invite trouble in, and sometimes, like Threepio, I get my own set of trouble anyway. Not that this is the case most of the time, but I’ll watch Threepio in his many, many misadventures and I’ll nod my head and say “bro, I feel your pain”.
But all the same, Threepio really is just trying to do his best and help people, like he was programmed for. I’m a bit more crazy and carefree than Threepio, but when it comes down to our comrades, we just want to be there for them and be a friend — even when our friends are more adventurous than we are.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: The Counselor
SW_MTB1_ObiWan
As a huge Obi-Wan fan (as you all know by now), I was really hoping that he’d be my SW twin. Interestingly though, according to this, we’re not as alike as I had thought.
I do find myself curious about what makes people tick. I mean, I love to create characters and tell stories as well as observe my favorite movies, shows, and books, in both ways thinking about what motivated so-and-so to do this, or why they reacted like this, or what did they really mean when they said that, etc. I consider myself pretty insightful, but I’m not sure that I match this description to an insane level or anything. But they seem to be more talking about the Obi-Wan of the Original Trilogy; I think that if we look at the Obi-Wan of the Prequels, we have more in common than just our interest in human thought.
I like to joke around that I could be Obi-Wan’s twin sister. We both have nearly the same color hair and eyes, weirdly enough. Obi-Wan is considered to be a master of wit and wisdom. I don’t know if I’m the wisest, but I love coming up with clever one-liners and sarcastic quips. I remember a year ago watching the TCW episode Blue Shadow Virus for the first time in a while. And Obi-Wan and the clones are standing in that room chock-full of life-destroying bombs and Obi-Wan’s like “Good thing these things aren’t armed!” Cue two seconds later when that dastardly doctor starts up the countdown. I chuckled to myself and remarked “Spoke too soon” just as Obi-Wan said “I spoke too soon”! And I had totally forgotten that line was in there! I think we have a strangely similar thought process. Aside from that time, I’ve sat and watched Obi-Wan a number of times and thought “I would totally have reacted like that!”
Another thing you don’t realize quiteΒ as much in the Originals is that Obi-Wan is super amiable and friendly. I definitely can be like that, especially with close friends. He has acquaintances and chums in bounty hunters, diner cooks, important politcians, fellow Jedi, and everyone in between. Being as I’ve never traveled the galaxy with Qui-Gon, I don’t have any friends in those categories, but all the same, I enjoy talking and hanging out with people.
So while I may not exactly be Obi-Wan’s doppleganger, I’m glad I have a few somethings in common with this incredibly awesome Jedi.

Bail Organa: The Artist
SW_MTB1_BailOrgana
As soon as I saw they classified him as “The Artist”, I realized I might’ve found my SW twin. I love drawing and writing and consider myself to be an artsy sort, though I’d never thought of Bail as “artsy” (though perhaps he secretly sketches landscapes in his spare time…). But it goes deeper than that.
As the description states, while I love being around friends, I really enjoy having some space to just be me (especially when I’m writing or drawing or blogging, like I am now). I’m all about not rushing art; I’d rather take a week on a great drawing than do ten bad drawings in one week. And I really am not a fan of getting into disagreements with people (which is clearly why I don’t allow comments on this blog). But yet I have a strong sense of justice, and I will speak up about it.
Also, Senator Organa and I have the closest fashion sense πŸ™‚ Blues, grays, blacks, turtlenecks, boots… dude, I must own tons of those colors and articles! What can I say? Bail and I got SWAG! XD
In all seriousness, I am proud to be very much alike Leia’s “other” daddy. He may not be the first person who comes to mind when you think about Star Wars, but he is truly one of my fave Prequel characters and a truly great character.

Luke Skywalker: The Idealist
SW_MTB1_LukeSkywalker
I was quite surprised to find that I had stuff in common with one of the most notable heroes in the SW Galaxy! But the description does sound a bit like me, even if I’ve never watched a double sunset, looking intense with John Williams in the background πŸ™‚
I probably am a bit idealistic, and I would definitely say I’m a loyal sort. And I definitely don’t sit around and let people trash what I know is right. And I do want to see people meet their full potential.
I think that I’m pretty adapatable and flexible. For the most part, I’m just cool with whatever happens. Sometimes I get bummed out, but hey, I’m not sure that Luke was exactly feeling “flexible” when he found out his farmwork would prolong his dream of being part of the Rebel Alliance.
Besides all of that, Luke and I both have twin siblings. So, cool πŸ˜€
Overall, I’m quite pleased to be so similar to Luke Skywalker. He’s messed up and he’s been knocked down a few times, but all the same he’s still full of spirit and strength. I hope to match that description in my everyday life.

Wicket W. Warrick: The Performer
SW_MBT1_WicketWarrick
Some people might not be thrilled with coming out an ewok. I am not some people. I kinda figured I’d share a lot in common with this furry warrior, and I’m quite happy about it.
Outgoing? Check. Friendly? Check. Exhuberant lover of life? Check. And I do love my friends and family and my stuff, too.
And like the description states, I do like working with people on stuff. Sometimes I prefer to go it solo, but as someone who always stays for the end credits on every movie, I highly admire team efforts and enjoy being a part of a group.
I’m not sure I’m easily adaptive sometimes, as I mentioned earlier with Threepio, but it depends on the situation. Sometimes I’ll jump into it, and sometimes I’ll tiptoe into it, but I do want to do my best no matter what.
It’s also kinda fun to say that I’m about the height of an ewok… I’m not very tall… OK OK maybe I’m not literally three-foot-nothing or whatever, but sometimes I feel about that tall. But Wicket’s great because he is that tall and he still is an Empire-whupping hero πŸ™‚ Also, he was my birthday cake this year, so that says something about me, I guess…

Qui-Gon Jinn: The Champion
SW_MBT1_QuiGonJinn
So, assuming I got the actual method right, Qui-Gon is my actual SW twin. How cool is it to say that I’m Qui-Gon?! He’s another one of my fave SW characters ever!! I can never see the name Liam Neeson without thinking of Master Jinn, and I mean that as a compliment! (Well, the first role I saw him in was as Aslan in the Narnia films, but Qui-Gon comes to mind more often) So yeah I geeked out when I found this out.
Also, being known as The Champion is awesome …YOU’RE GONNA HEAR ME ROAR/LOUDER, LOUDER THAN A LION/’CAUSE I AM A CHAMPION/YOU’RE GONNA HEAR ME ROOOOOOAAAARRRR!! *Ahem* Sorry (Hehehe I realized that Mr. Neeson played Aslan who is a lion and Qui-Gon, who is “The Champion”…)
But anyway, everything it says in the description fits me like a glove. Warmly enthusiastic, imaginative, sees life as full of possibilities. Definitely me.
It also mentions wanting affirmation from others. Also true; I admit I’m more partial to compliments than I am criticism. Never pegged Qui-Gon in that area, but who knows? He did kinda have to deal with the Council’s lack of enthusiasm when he wanted to train Anakin. And they say Qui-Gon’s a bit of a rebel among Jedi; I’m not saying I’m a rebellious sort, but I do get being a bit different from the average sort in my crowd.
But then it mentions readily giving appreciation and support. This is also right on the Republic credits. I love uplifiting others in their craft and cheering them on. Especially when it comes to fellow artists and writers.
Really, everything here is true. Right down to my verbal fluency (I am writing a blog here, aren’t I?) Again, it’s insanely cool to be akin with the amazing Master Jinn. I would very much like to grab a cup of joe with him in the Force Spirit Realm sometime πŸ˜€

Jar Jar Binks: The Provider
SW_MBT1_JarJarBinks
For some reason, I figured I’d be even more like Jar Jar than the description says. And unlike some fans, I have no problem with being like Representative Binks.
Whoops… there went all my viewers. JUST HERE ME OUT, PLEASE.
Well, besides the fact that I can be rather klutzy (though not to a have-to-be-banished-from-my-hometown level), I think “warmhearted, concientious, and cooperative” suit me.
I definitely prefer harmony in my surroundings, and as I mentioned with Wicket, I like working with other people.
Interesting thought here: Jar Jar may seem like a nice guy 99% of the time, but he can be very good at sarcasm. I mean, that line in Episode I where he’s all “Ha… yeah… no. I’d be better off dead here than dead at the planet core.” or “The Force. Yeah, sure. That’s a huge deal…” I’m not saying I would’ve reacted exactly like him in those situations, but while I try to be nice most of the time, I can be… well, a pureveyor of the fine art of sarcasm.
And then the last thing about wanting to be appreciated? That’s very true of me. I want to leave a legacy, shall we say. I want to be remembered well for who I am and what I’ve done. I may not be a twice-time General or a peace-seeking politician, but Jar Jar and I both want to be loyal friends, help people, and make a difference. And like this guy or not, Jar Jar has definitely made a difference in the SW Galaxy.

Padme Amidala: The Giver
SW_MBT1_PadmeAmidala
Honestly, I thought Padme and I would have the least in common. I mean, standing up to monsters and other bad guys? Standing up to a crowd with a potentially planetshaking proposition? Wearing that much makeup? I could never be like Padme in those areas, I don’t think. She’s an extremely admirable character, and I couldn’t imagine what we really had in common. But look again… most of the description is pretty on the nose! Warm, empathetic, finds potential in everyone, etc. I’m not sure I’m leader material, as this suggests. But I think it’s pretty cool that we’re not too far apart.
I also think about how Padme is very outspoken with her beliefs and her drive for peace… she wants the war to end, but she’s willing to fight for it all the same. Even if it requires what we would call “aggressive negotiations”. I think that I share that, in a way. I mentioned earlier that I’d rathered not get into disagreements if I can help it, but all the same, if I feel the need to, I will argue a point down to the bone. I sometimes wish I wasn’t like this because I don’t want to sound like a jerk or lose any friends, but I suppose it’s good that I’m willing to hold on tightly to what I believe is true. And that’s why I’m glad I have a bit of Senator Amidala in me.

So I hopefully have given you a chance to look at these characters differently and maybe learn a bit more about me. But enough about me! Who’s your SW twin? πŸ™‚

BLOGGER’S NOTE 2/6/16: I finally found the chart again after the link having been broken for so long. I will note that the descriptions are different than what I originally used on this post, but the concepts are still the same. Sorry for any confusion this may cause. Thanks for reading.
