My Star Wars Weekend Update

Happy weekend, friends!

Not a lot to talk about this week, really. I loved the latest episode of The Bad Batch, and I’ll talk about that in Monday’s post.

I’ve been working on a post about the heroes of Star Wars–who are my top ten heroes of Star Wars, how would I rank them, and why. I haven’t written a post like this for awhile, and it’s been fun to work on. I’ll probably post that on Tuesday (since I’m not done yet, lol).

Star Wars The High Republic: Out of the Shadows by Justina Ireland

I finished my reread of The Light of the Jedi, and am currently rereading Into the Dark, by Claudia Gray. The next YA novel of the High Republic will be coming out in July, and it’s called Out of the Shadows by Justina Ireland. I am absolutely loving the High Republic stories, and am fully invested in these characters and this time. I think it’s because it’s familiar, in that it’s about the Jedi and the Republic (and the Jedi are my favorite part of Star Wars), but it’s also different because of the earlier timeline. I’ve always wanted to know a little bit more about the history of the Jedi, and we’re getting some here in the High Republic books. We’re also getting some tantalizing clues about how the Jedi were different, and what might have happened to lead them to become the kind of Jedi in the prequels (and subsequently lead to their downfall). I find it all very fascinating.

That’s really about it. I’ve noticed on Disney+ that Loki has premiered. I’m not a Marvel or DC fan at all (I don’t even know the difference, or which one he’s from, lol), but I do remember seeing a Thor movie with him in it (I just went along with some friends). I wasn’t too wowed by the movie, but I LOVED the character of Loki. He was the best part of the movie, lol. So I’m thinking about checking it out, even though I know nothing about the universe at all. I’ll probably be lost, but I’ll at least check out the first episode. Any DC/Marvel/Loki fans here? Have you watched the show, and what do you think?

  1. HUGE MARVEL AND LOKI FAN (and DC as well but we’ll leave that for another time lol). Yes he is definitely one of the best things to come out of the Marvel universe in my opinion because he seems so refreshing. I mean once you’ve seen a super hero movie, you’ve kind of seen them all, it’s hard to paint the superhero differently if that makes sense. At least Loki has his own thing going on that is separate from the Avengers because he became the villain in that universe. So that is how he is kind of treated in the new TV show but it’s SO GOOD! I am counting the days to the next episode lol I think you will LOVE it. If you have any questions feel free to throw them my way. I don’t consider myself a MARVEL guru but I think I know enough 🙂

    1. I actually watched the first episode last night, and despite not knowing a thing about the Avengers and whatnot, I loved it! It was really surreal and funny and weird and brought up questions about choice and freedom and fate, etc. Very cool, and I’ll probably keep watching. Sometimes the villains are more interesting than the heroes, lol.

      1. So the part where Loki dies – he hadn’t actually seen that before because the Loki in custody was on a different time line as the Loki that died in the Avengers movie. It’s really awesome how they did all of that and integrated it back into the Avengers movie and then back to him again. It is actually one of my favourite shows now lol 🙂

      2. Multiverse stories are always fun, if a bit confusing sometimes, lol. Especially since I’m not familiar with the movies and what happened in them, but I’ll manage. Like the Mandalorian, I don’t think you need to know everything about the universe; you can still follow along. I hope so, anyway, because this looks like a cool show.
