Star Wars Fandom – Alternative Edit of Luke Skywalker in The Mandalorian

Remember that scene, in The Mandalorian, with that guy Luke Skywalker? THE BEST SCENE EVER! Someone on Reddit edited the sound and added “Funeral Pyre For A Jedi” by John Williams – and wow, you have to listen to this with your headphones on; it is AMAZING!

Only a quick update today, my friends, as I have just arrived home from work (had to go into the office YUK), and I have a mountain of writing to do. I hope you enjoyed the clip above. Let me know if you know of any other awesome edits like this so I can spread the Star Wars love 😊

Hit me up in the comments, readers and let me know how you’re all getting on!

Star Wars Fandom – Someone Built the Razor Crest!

Just a quick update today regarding our wonderful fandom and these crazy people who are blurring the line between reality and fiction with things like this:

VIA REDDIT

Let me know what you think dear readers – is this something you could see yourself doing? I can tell you now I could never put together something as big and elaborate as this. It just goes to show how far some fans will actually go for the fandom they love.

Star Wars Fandom OTP’s – What Is Your Favourite Pairing in the Fandom?

I got the idea to write about this from Tina because we were talking about the types of pairings in the fandoms we don’t like or just don’t support. This kind of ties into the wider topic of fandom fanfics which I still need to do on this blog. I will get to that side of things eventually – I have faith lol but for now, lets talk pairings.

For anyone that isn’t aware of what OTP means it stands for “One True Pairing” and is kind of the ultimate pairing you support in any given fandom. In Star Wars here are some examples of OTPs that fans have supported over the years and/or still do:

REYLO AND BENREY

This one is kinda obvious which is why it makes the list. Thousands upon thousands of fans all over the world support this pairing in the SWCU and rightly so, they made it canon 😅

OBIKIN

This hopefully, doesn’t need explanation and it’s SUPER big on Tumblr so yeah, if you want to see more, that is where you should go 😬

STORMPILOT

Finn and Poe together as a couple wasn’t only a fan thing. Oscar Isaac apparently approached Disney about the possibility of these two having a relationship and Disney was like “uh no”. What does that say about Disney? Food for thought my friends, food for thought. Here’s a snippet of an interview where Oscar talks about asking Disney to make Stormpilot a thing:

There are others but the ones I’ve mentioned above are the biggest in the fandom so far. Let me know if you have any others that should have made it on this list or any other fandom pairings you enjoy or support?

As always hit me up in the comments because that’s where I live 😁

What is Your Favourite Star Wars Fan Theory?

On days like today, when I feel like I can’t come up with anything news-worthy to blog about, I look to my extensive “drafts” folder and hope to find a gem hiding there amongst the 70 odd drafts that I have. Do you have a “drafts” folder with discarded blog posts or blog post ideas? I rarely trash things on my blog, so if I do, it means it really is a lost cause. 😂

I’ve been thinking about this topic for a while and put it away to revisit it another day. Well, that day has now arrived, so I am asking my readers for their ULTIMATE star wars fan theory ideas so I can read them and smile or cry as the case may be.

As I write this, I don’t actually have a fan theory that I like. I am also looking for my readers to give me some food for thought on this topic. While I’m thinking about fan theories, I do have a couple I absolutely DISLIKE, but that’s for another post. 😉

You could even talk about your own fan theories, and we could start there – I promise not to giggle or cry when I read them 😂 but seriously, I am looking forward to hearing your theories, friends.

And as I did research on this topic, I came across this one which I am now claiming as the one I like the most currently:

Maul will be in Kenobi

Via Reddit

I actually did think about this some time ago, but for some reason, I got distracted and, well, lost that train of thought somewhere in the netherworld. But this is definitely one I am HOPING they include in the Kenobi series. Can you imagine it? WHAT IF THEY had Maul and Vader face each other? Okay, that is my favourite fan theory. 😁

As always, hit me up in the comments section so we can gasbag about this topic!

Star Wars Controversy – Krystina Arielle

Today my Star Wars Twitter feed was in an uproar over race! Comments made by the new host of the Star Wars web series for The High Republic Krystina Arielle has fueled racist bigots in the Star Wars community and supporters alike.

This is Arielle in case you do not know who she is:

And the tweets in question that got under the skin of some Star Wars fans even though I note these comments were made in May of last year:

Via Twitter

I’ve only just started to read up on what is going on, but it appears that Krystina made the above comments about “white people” (which some are saying is her being racist) and she was attacked on social media for it.

Star Wars chimed in supporting Arielle:

Which caused even more controversy as people started calling out Star Wars for treating People of Colour with disrespect – particularly Kelly-Marie Tran and John Boyega.

I am not a political person meaning I don’t like or feed drama in the fandom – any fandom, Star Wars or anything else. I just don’t like to get involved on that level in an online environment. I have seen way too many bad situations occur and unfold online to know better. But racism in ANY shape or form is disgusting and has no place in this world.

There is an #IStandWithKrystina hashtag now on Twitter. If you want your voice heard on this matter, search that on Twitter, and you’ll find just about anyone with a Twitter account sounding off about it.

It’s unfortunate and sad that our fandom is marred by these situations and people who think it’s acceptable to dislike someone for the colour of their skin. And for the record, if you are a person of colour and make racist statements, you’re a racist.

racist

[ rey-sist ]See synonyms for racist on Thesaurus.com


noun

a person who believes in racism, the doctrine that one’s own racial group is superior or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others.

adjective

of or like racists or racism: racist policies; racist attitudes.

Krystina Arielle wasn’t making racist comments about “white people”. She was trying to raise awareness about something she feels strongly about. That isn’t the same thing as saying your race is more superior than another. I think some people need to read the dictionary to understand what racism is.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments my dear readers!
