THE KNIGHTS OF REN ***POSSIBLE SPOILER TRAILER LEAK*** – STAR WARS CINEMATIC UNIVERSE

🛑‼️POSSIBLE SPOILERS / POSSIBLE STAR WARS LEAK READ AT YOUR OWN RISK🛑‼️

HOLY GEEZ, this star wars leak/spoiler is HUGE! This is primarily huge because NOBODY, and I do mean none of the sources that usually report this stuff even knew about it! One of the subreddits I frequent posted about a couple of days ago, but it got buried under everything else, so I didn’t see it until this morning.

THERE is supposedly a trailer that features the Knights of Ren. Here’s the trailer (bear in mind it might get taken offline, especially if it’s legit), so watch this right now; otherwise, you might miss out!

 

My understanding of The Knights of Ren is that they started with a dark side user named “Ren”. This came from the comics, so none of this was known before the comics first revealed the character. By the looks of this character in the teaser/trailer, that isn’t him. Ren looks nothing like that in the comics. When I say “looks nothing like him”, you can easily see what you want to see in this hazy image. The lighting is so bad that you can’t make out any specifics (probably on purpose).

Here’s the comic version of Ren. Assuming that is who the person in this clip is, it could be someone else entirely! Or the voiceover could be Ren speaking and this dude in the clip is a random Knight of Ren we don’t yet know.

CREDIT TO MARVEL AND LUCASFILM

Disney has not announced this project. Which explains why nobody knew about it. If you use Reddit, check out the Star Wars leaks subreddit. They don’t even have this listed there as a possible project in development by Disney. So that tells me that someone kept this very quiet until now, OR it’s fan-made, and a hoax, and almost the entire Star Wars fandom fell for it 🤣

It wouldn’t be the first time a “legit” source got it wrong. I remember many supposed “leaks” that were merely fans getting excited over nothing at all and everyone else joining in.

This is what being part of a fandom is all about! I dunno who or what this particular trailer is, nor do I know anything else, so I am in the same boat right now!

My opinion on the clip – it looks pretty legit to me. Also, Sony is really good at shutting down leaks. But Disney doesn’t seem to be as ruthless as that. Even if this was a leak, there’s still a good chance Disney is allowing the leak on purpose to gather momentum from the fandom. We know that Solo: A Star Wars Story flopped. And there have always been opinions within the fandom that Disney releases too many things too soon and saturates the market. Maybe this came from inside Disney/Lucasfilm for a reason.

Also, I did a quick check on the music in the clip, too – it was unrecognised by Shazam. But again, that doesn’t mean anything, it could be some random audio file from YouTube as there are thousands – all free.

So much to think about, and it’s SO EXCITING! What do you think, Star Wars friends? Let me know in the comments as I am dying to chat away about this 😁😆

Star Wars Cinematic Universe – Episode X, XI and XII Rumours and a LEGO Series!

Hi all! Welcome back to another post from yours truly about that universe we LOVE with all our hearts – a galaxy far, far away! So today I was on Twitter (a really good place to keep up to date with Star Wars content, rumours etc) and I saw a post where someone was talking about “Ren being played by Christian Slater”. I was confused – what did they mean by this? Are they talking about Kylo Ren I mean who else could it be?

Turns out, there is going to be a LEGO movie about the Kylo Ren comics and Christian Slater is going to be voicing the character of Ren. If you’ve read the comics, you should know who Ren is. Ren IS NOT Kylo Ren. Ren is this guy:

Why hello there…

And the show is going to be a LEGO show featuring Darth Vader’s castle on Mustafar and a whole lot of other stuff as well. Here’s the trailer:

So that’s that 😂 and not sure if you can guess but LEGO Star Wars isn’t my thing. I have never really been a fan and I’d only watch this if I had nothing else to watch (which is impossible because I always have something to watch!)

The Episode X, XI and XII rumours

I’ve mentioned these two YouTube channels before – Mike Zeroh and Star Wars Theory and I’ve mostly steered clear because I think their rumour videos are not all that entertaining and I don’t like listening to click bait content. But today I visited both channels to catch up on the latest rumours about George Lucas coming back to produce/create Episodes X, XI and XII with Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni.

THIS INFORMATION IS NOTHING BUT RUMOUR AT THIS STAGE!

I just wanted to be sure anyone reading this understands that I do not endorse fake news or click bait content but there was something different about this rumour. It seemed a little odd that both channels would be reporting on this at the same time. I’ve never actually seen that before. I know that Mike Zeroh has a poor reputation in the Star Wars fandom for being sensationalist and fake with his news. Star Wars Theory seems to be better in that regard but I fail to see how that type of content is bringing value to the fandom.

Today they both had interesting things to say about the “new” Skywalker trilogy rumour. Now I have to say that I’ve heard about these rumours for a long time now. The original rumour started ages ago and I just ignored it then. What Star Wars Theory and his buddy are saying is that they do NOT want the sequel trilogy to be the end of the Skywalker Saga. They are happy to see three new movies made by George, Jon and Dave completely ignoring the three movies that went before.

Who is trying to retcon me???

The sequel trilogy gave us Kylo Ren and then Ben Solo – two characters that the fandom really supports so I don’t know how three new movies overwriting the sequel trilogy will deal with Ben and Kylo Ren. All I know is that if they erase the sequels, they are erasing all the hard work that Adam Driver put into those characters and that would annoy the crap out of me to be honest.

Mike Zeroh also referred to huge news being revealed at Disney’s investor group day. Disney has officially set November 12, 2021, as Disney+ Day. Last year this was a huge day for Star Wars fans with the announcements that rocked the fandom such as the Kenobi series. So Mike Zeroh is not wrong when he says that there is bound to be a few things revealed that the fandom doesn’t expect or know about.

At the end of the day it is what it is. I prefer to take the information I get from anyone with a grain of salt. There are many sources online that call themselves “legit” sources for Star Wars information but I haven’t found one yet that has been correct about every rumour no matter how “legit” they claim to be.

Let me know what you think about these rumours and anything Star Wars related and we can chat about it in the comments!

Stay safe out there my friends and May The Force Be With You ☺️😊

The Big Clean-Up Project – Part I

I’ve wanted to make an official post about this project of mine for some time. Still, I’ve either been too busy with other life stuff OR too lazy 😅 The thing is, though, I’ve been putting this off for a long time, and I know that my site is not going to get any better if I don’t start cleaning up the content. I know it has a crapload of content to sift through, and I won’t have to update all of it. I am just looking to move content I don’t want on this blog to my other blogs if the content is a fit (like movie reviews I don’t want on this blog) and general upkeep such as linking back to all of my images, edits etc. on Pinterest for maximum exposure (at least that is my goal!) As well as this, I will be updating the permalinks and URLs, so they are short and simple. A lot of my links are really long and don’t work well with SEO.

I wanted to start with an update of a poetry edit I made a while ago as I came up with a different graphic and look for the image which I originally blogged about on the 14th of October, 2019. I wrote a poem from Leia to Ben called “The Light”, which then turned into a graphic and has now been updated to a GIF and a better graphic lol because I kept changing my mind about what I wanted it to look like.

Here’s the graphic I made in October with the poem added:

Made by Darkside Creative

And here’s the updated graphic I made on Tuesday:

Made by Darkside Creative

And the GIF I made:

Made by Darkside Creative

So that’s one thing I wanted to update for ages, and now I’ve finally done it. 😁 I am interested to see how well it does on Pinterest because these types of graphics are huge there!

I’ll be continuing the clean-up and blogging as I go. Thanks for reading; stay safe out there, and I’ll catch you in my next post, Star Wars friends!

Star Wars Edits Galore!

I played around with an older edit of Luke Skywalker I made a year or so back and made an easy and quick little text animation for it:

Made by Darkside Creative

I also animated this concept art image of Kylo Ren by Phil Szostak:

Animated by Darkside Creative

And finally another animation I did of Luke Skywalker taken from the finale of The Mandalorian Season Two:

Animated by Darkside Creative

Luke Skywalker seems to be on my mind a fair bit lately so expect to see a lot of edits using him as the focus 🙂

Feel free to share anywhere you’d like (credit would be nice for the images I’ve made) 😁

I hope you are all doing well, keeping safe and healthy and looking forward to the new year ahead! Let me know what you’ve been up to so far during the holiday period!

Adobe Photoshop – Kylo Ren Art

This started out as a tutorial review but the tutorial became a little annoying with the instructions not making much sense (steps missing etc) and I kind of gave up on it half-way through.

That said, I used part of the tutorial because I liked the initial image result and then added the rest to create the final image which I made here:

Made by Darkside Creative

I have used this image once before when I was playing around with cartoon effects in Photoshop. The initial image for the art above was using threshold filters, sketch and photocopy filters and then a lot of blend modes and gradient maps for colour.

If I could create a step-by-step tutorial on how to make this I would but I honestly just don’t remember what I did to get to this result. I liked it a whole lot more than what the tutorial created so I guess that’s all that matters 😁

Anyway, it has been a long time since I actually made some Star Wars art so I figured it was due – I hope you like it. Let me know if you have any questions in the comments!

Stay safe out there people, keep creating and I’ll catch you all tomorrow!
