Star Wars Cinematic Universe – The Music of Star Wars #1

This is one of my many draft posts that I never quite got around to updating until now which did link into a different post but I’ve decided to separate them. So I went down a little bit of a rabbit hole and found all of this awesome star wars music, some of it alternate versions of songs on the original soundtracks.

So I think I might start showcasing some of the alternate music made for Star Wars on my blog because I think that’ll be really fun to do and to share with my readers.

Via YouTube

And I decided to start with this one which is an edited version of Funeral Pyre For A Jedi except this YouTuber put together both versions. I didn’t even know this was an actual song because it sounds like Luke’s theme to me except with small variations (like different instrumental pieces added).

When you play them straight after each other, it’s so different and it really does have a different “feel” to the music just like the dude says at the end of the clip. What did you think of this clip?

What is your favourite piece of Star Wars music? Have you found anything special online that you think we might enjoy? If so, hit me up in the comments section and I’ll check it out!

Stay safe, keep creating, and I’ll catch you all in the comments or in my next post!

Star Wars Cinematic Universe – Did Rosario Dawson Just Drop a Huge Spoiler?

Apparently, Rosario Dawson posted this on her Instagram, confirming the roles of Ezra Bridger and Thrawn for the Ahsoka TV show!

I tried to find the original post for proof on IG: but I couldn’t find the post. So now I am wondering if it’s even legit. It was posted by a really legit Star Wars website, though, so I’m confused.

After further investigation, it turns out Rosario posted this in an IG story and then took it down. I am not sure if that means she wasn’t supposed to post it or if it was a rumour and proved to be incorrect:

Rosario Dawson seemingly confirms the casting of Mena Massoud as Ezra and Lars Mikkelsen as Thrawn in the Ahsoka series.

(Source: Rosario Dawson on Instagram)

So if it’s true, what do you think? Do you think these choices are good? Why or why not? I’ve posted about this theory before, and we took guesses at who could play Thrawn. One of those choices is on this list, so I am pretty happy about that even if it isn’t true lol. 😂😅

Sound off in the comments, dear readers and let me know what you think of this huge rumour or possible spoiler or EVEN fake news!

Star Wars Cinematic Universe – Did Rey Become a Jedi Master?

At the end of Star Wars, The Rise of Skywalker, Rey is seen with her new lightsaber. She can also see both Luke and Leia as force ghosts.

I came across this post online as I was reading through updates on WordPress, and this triggered me a little (not gonna lie, probably more than a little) 😅

Following the Battle of Exegol in 35 ABY, Rey took up the family name of her mentors Luke and Leia Skywalker. Now the last Jedi, Rey Skywalker ascended to the rank of Master.

STAR WARS LATINAMERICA

The thing is, anybody can post a blog article and rant about what they think is happening in the Star Wars universe, but that doesn’t make any of it fact or canon, for that matter. However, there are many debates over what is and isn’t canon, so I try to stay away from all that. But this post got me thinking – are there fans out there that actually think Rey is a Jedi Master?

Was Rey even “The Last Jedi?” Technically, yes, Rey was the last Jedi because when Ben Solo became Ben Solo again, he had reverted back to being a Jedi but then died by sacrificing himself to save Rey. So at that point, Rey was the very last Jedi that we know of in the cinematic universe. I’d go so far as to say that she was probably the last Jedi we know of in canon as well. But a Jedi Master?

Let’s see what the sources online have to say about Rey’s status as a Jedi Master.

Taken from the Wookiepedia resource on Rey:

At some point after, while attempting to restore galactic peace, Rey became a Jedi Master.[52]

Wookiepedia

This is listed in The Star Wars Book by Pablo Hidalgo (referred to in the Wookiepedia article). According to this reference, Rey became a Jedi Master. But is that canon?

If it is, I don’t agree with it for a couple of reasons. First, to become a Jedi Master, you have to take on a Padawan. If there were no other remnants of the Jedi Order (seeing as Rey was the last Jedi), how did this happen? Did Rey just take the title herself? And we won’t even talk about the Jedi High Council in this debate.

Secondly – Anakin Skywalker considered one of the strongest Jedi of all time, never made it to Jedi Master. How could Rey do something that Anakin couldn’t, given their age and years of experience? Anakin was trained from a very early age. Rey only discovered the force when she was in her late teens. None of that makes any sense.

To be honest, all of those so-called “sources” online are edited by people, just normal Star Wars fans like you and me. It is the same with Wikipedia (so many people, including myself, seem to forget it’s not really a legitimate source of information in that regard). That’s not to say that I am not grateful because I am. It takes a lot of effort and time to maintain a database of that size, and the fandom would be less of a fandom without it.

It is important to note that this post has absolutely nothing to do with Rey not being as powerful as other Jedi or any of that garbage because she’s a woman. Frankly, anyone that thinks that or even entertains that garbage can just go right along and unfollow me because that is misogynistic and has no place here or anywhere, to be honest. Just wanted to make that clear, now moving on.

I couldn’t find a reliable source that confirms The Star Was Book as canon, and several sources online debate it, so I’m going to say no at this point until proven otherwise (Wookiepedia says it is but again, refer to my details above about Wookiepedia as a source).

It is possible that Rey did other things not shown in the cinematic universe, such as founding the new Jedi Order (again, nothing confirms this online). I can imagine many fans would not be happy about that, considering Luke tried to do this in the Legends books, which isn’t considered canon according to Wookiepedia.

I know that Pablo Hidalgo is part of the Lucas Film Story Group, and therefore whatever he writes is considered canon. But I’m still not convinced.

What do you think about Rey being a Jedi Master? Agree or disagree? Why or why not? Let me know in the comments, friends!

Star Wars Cinematic Universe – This is Why You Shouldn’t Believe Everything You Read

There are dozens of sources for Star Wars movie information online that are verifiable sources. On top of those websites, you also have countless other “sources” for Star Wars media and news, which, unfortunately, include people like Mike Zeroh.

I’ve mentioned Mike Zeroh a few times on this blog because he is well-known (infamously) within the Star Wars fandom as being full of sh*t when it comes to his star wars theories. He is someone that I consider to be a master of “clickbait” headlines that rely on people’s natural curiosity to pull in readers and viewers on YouTube.

If there is one thing I would never do, it’s what Mike Zeroh does daily, and that is to make shit up just to get viewers and fans on his website and YouTube channel. Perhaps it’s my background in journalism that stops me from blogging about lies. I dunno but I think it’s wrong to purposefully mislead people into believing something that you know is completely fake.

Here’s a snippet of a post I saw on Twitter recently that made me actually laugh out loud:

I honestly don’t know how he can blog about these things without verification. He says that he has someone on the “inside” at Lucasfilm or Disney; I forget which one now. But it’s obvious to me that he’s just fabricating everything he says on YouTube so people will click and subscribe. Either that OR the source he is getting this information from is trolling him BIG time and making him look like a person that cannot ever be trusted.

His biggest competition is a dude named Star Wars Theory, who I also don’t have all that much respect for (mostly because I think he is trying to make as much money from Star Wars fans as he can while claiming he is all about “the fandom and Star Wars). I don’t have an issue with someone trying to make a living from something they love; hell, isn’t that the dream job? But something he did when he made a Darth Vader video a while back just put me off him for life. But I will say this about Star Wars Theory, and that is at least what he talks about is usually verifiable to some degree. I don’t listen to his YouTube channel, so I can’t tell you whether or not he’s lied about content on his blog. But he seems slightly more legit than Mike Zeroh.

Anyway, let me know what you think of this latest “theory” about Rey having a “force child” like Anakin, LOL. Even typing it out sounds ridiculous to me…😂🤣

Star Wars Cinematic Universe – Could We See a Young Luke Skywalker in the Obi-Wan Series?

There has been a lot of debate on social media about Disney’s recent announcement regarding the cast for the Obi-Wan series. Of course, fans are going to speculate. I mean, that’s what we do! And it’s fun to guess who could be in the show and in what capacity. It’s also fun to talk about who won’t be in the show as some revelations have come to light recently about Jar Jar Binks and his appearance.

One idea popped into my head when I noticed someone on Twitter talking about who could play a young Luke Skywalker. And then someone posted this:

Via Twitter

I don’t know about you, but I am definitely getting a Luke Skywalker vibe coming off this kid! If you recognise his face, it’s because he played the son of Homelander in the hugely successful “The Boys” last year. His name is Cameron Corvetti.

During the timeline they are using for the Obi-Wan series, Luke would be around 8-10 years old? According to the best source there is on this, Star Wars dot com says 10 years after Anakin’s fall to the dark side:

The story begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where Kenobi faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.

Via Star wars dot com

What do you think, people? Do you think we’ll see a young Luke Skywalker? I would say there’s a pretty big chance we will considering the connection Obi-Wan had with him, but I guess we’ll see. I am putting my money on this kid though, he is perfect as a young Luke Skywalker.
