Hello friends, and happy weekend!
So I’ve finished The Princess and the Scoundrel this week, and I enjoyed it immensely. Most books I’ve read with Han and Leia in them have the two separated, on different adventures or missions, but this one necessarily has them together during the whole book. It’s the story of their wedding and honeymoon, after all. And because they’re together the whole time, we get all of their arguments, banter, and romance (oh, the kissing that takes place!), all the time. And it’s awesome! They get to know each other better and try to figure out what this whole marriage thing is about. Oh yeah, and they save a crumbling moon from the remnants of the Empire, yadda yadda (I jest; it’s a good story). I think the author, Beth Revis, really nailed the characters of Han and Leia, and their dynamic. It may even be my favorite Star Wars book that was released this year, next to The Fallen Star. I’ve enjoyed all of them, but this one, I think, will have a special place in my heart.
I chose to set aside The Fifth Season in order to finish Princess, but I’ll be getting back to that now, and will have more on that next week
I’ve also downloaded the Ahsoka novel to my Kindle, as there was a $1.99 deal on it, which is something I’ll never pass up. 🙂
When it was announced that Andor was being moved up to Sept. 21, I had wondered if The Bad Batch S2 would also get moved up, as it was set to premiere Sept. 18th. Well, I saw that it has, indeed, been moved, but I haven’t seen a new premiere date yet. We’ll just have to wait and see when they’ll drop it.
On Sept. 8th, Disney+ will drop Obi-Wan Kenobi: A Jedi’s Return, a sort of making-of doc about that series. I’m guessing it will be similar to the Gallery series we’ve had about the other shows, and I can’t wait to see it!
Also on Sept. 8th, Thor: Love and Thunder will come to D+. Geez, it’s still playing in my local theater, lol. I probably won’t be rewatching. I love Thor, but this one, while it had me laughing, also left me disappointed. I kind of wish I had laughed less and was invested more in the story.
That’s about it this week. What’s been entertaining you? Let me know in the comments and we’ll talk about it!

Not gonna lie… the degree to which they’re playing Thor for laughs at this point kind of bothers me. In fairness, the character is maybe not very exciting or relatable if they don’t, and maybe this just isn’t something they can do with a totally straight portrayal. That said, that’s probably a point where everyone should just sort of walk away… but this one still made $700 million worldwide, so of course they won’t.

Agreed. Infinity War Thor was perfect, a good balance between earlier versions and clown Thor. Maybe it’s time to let Thor retire into the cosmic sunset, lol. But like you said, if they can milk money out of it, they won’t.
