My Star Wars Facts & Opinions

My Star Wars Facts & Opinions | Anakin and His Angel

Occasionally when I share an opinion I have concerning Star Wars in a respectful way, I’ll lose followers. Honestly, every single time I think it's so silly because realistically, we're not always going to have the same opinions about Star Wars, and that’s ok. I know this is a topic that has been discussed time and time and again. It's unfortunate that fans feel like they can't share their opinions, or what they love about Star Wars in fear of the negative discourse that would ensue. Today I woke up and thought, "I'm going to share 10 things that some people might not know about me and Star Wars!". I hope this encourages you to share your thoughts and what you love about Star Wars if you want to. In my opinion, Star Wars should be celebrated!


"THIS IS WHERE THE FUN BEGINS!"

1) I became a Star Wars fan through the Original Trilogy, my love for Star Wars doubled when I saw the Prequels, and currently, the Sequels are my favorite. I really love them all though! If I had to pick 3 favorites they’d be: The Rise of Skywalker, Revenge of the Sith, and The Empire Strikes Back.

2) Growing up, Luke Skywalker didn't really appeal to me as he did with most. But seeing what his character went through and how he rose above it in The Last Jedi made me a fan. It's really been an interesting journey seeing Luke in a new light over the last few years. I absolutely love what they did with his character in The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett too!

3) I think Solo: A Star Wars Story is one of the most rewatchable Star Wars movies. I was very hesitant about Alden Ehrenreich playing Han Solo and against the thought of Han being with anyone but Princess Leia. But this film absolutely captivated me, and every concern I had was changed in the very beginning of the film. I learned my lesson in waiting to see what I think until after I've seen the movie!

4) I read the AOTC Novel in 1 day when it was first released. It is excellent! I love the way the novels incorporate the deleted scenes into the story, as well as the character's thoughts. It adds a whole other layer of depth. I remember the scene between Anakin and Obi-Wan on Mustafar in the ROTS novel just absolutely wrecking my emotions.

5) I’m not a huge Jabba the Hutt fan but I love collecting Jabba merchandise. I find that so much of his merchandise is adorable.

6) I met my husband Jason in line at the midnight showing of Attack of the Clones. This film will always hold a special place in my heart. You can read that story here if you'd like.

7) I think that Star Wars Rebels is such an underrated show. I truly believe that it contains some of the best Star Wars storytelling! Darth Vader and Ahsoka Tano are my top two favorite characters and their scenes in this show are absolutely golden. I am beyond excited to see so many of these beloved characters again in the Ahsoka series later this year!

8) The Star Wars LEGO games are some of my favorite games ever! They're so amazing, creative, and fun.

9) I think Lightsabers are one of the best things about Star Wars. The very first scene I ever saw from Star Wars was when Obi-Wan handed Luke Skywalker his father’s lightsaber in A New Hope, so I think that’s why I’m so attached to them. I had never seen anything like it before on screen!

10) The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is my favorite show that's been created thus far. I think about it every day. Seeing Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor reprising their roles as some of the most iconic characters in Star Wars was truly a gift for me as a fan. It's really hard to find the right words to describe my love for this series. It makes me emotional on every level, and I'll always be thankful for it.
