Edward Gross and Mark A. Altman’s Secrets of the Force: The Complete, Uncensored, Unauthorized Oral History of Star Wars is a must-own. If Apocalypse Now had turned out differently, Star Wars might never have seen the light of day. What an alternate universe this would be. Instead, Lucas’s idea for a Vietnam war film becomes something completely different. Not being able to acquire the rights to Flash Gordon would also alter his plans. Lucas would…"Secrets of the Force: An Oral History of Star Wars"
If you’ve ever been to any of the Disney parks, the ten-part documentary series, Behind the Attraction, is going to be a must-watch series. The first five episodes of this awesome behind-the-scenes series are available today. That’s right, you can watch five episodes in a row instead of waiting a week for the next installment. Obviously, Disney is making us wait before we can watch the final five episodes. Of the first five episodes available,…"Behind the Attraction: Disney’s Must-Watch Series"
The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, written by Amy Ratcliffe with a forward by Scott Trowbridge, is a must-own for any Star Wars fan. In terms of the book itself, Ratcliffe intros each section and then leaves us to admire the artwork. It’s truly amazing to see how the park evolved over time. Even though the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser hasn’t opened yet, we get a sneak peek at what to expect when it…"The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Is A Must-Own"
In the second episode, Star Wars: The Bad Batch sees the clones get together with some old friends as they figure out what to do next. On Tuesday, we got to meet the newest clone in Omega. What we know from the premiere is that she is the first female clone of Jango Fett. We also know that Kamino is no longer safe for either her or Clone Force 99. Going off planet isn’t much…"The Bad Batch – Episode 2 – “Cut and Run”"

The Star Wars universe recognized transgender representation on Transgender Day of Visibility 2021 with a social media announcement. I’ve made no secret of my own Star Wars story. If not for Star Wars and Jurassic Park, I would not be doing what I do today. While the news comes in the form of two non-binary characters during the High Republic era, it gives me hope that trans women also exist somewhere in the universe. If…"Star Wars Recognizes Transgender Representation"
Lucasfilm made the decision to fire Gina Carano so the question going forward is what will happen to Cara Dune on The Mandalorian. I am transgender and Jewish so it was very refreshing to hear that Lucasfilm is no longer employing the actor. Her words for quite a while have been offensive and it only got worse during the fall. According to some of the articles, it appeared that Carano lost out on the Rangers…"Gina Carano Fired: What Happens with Cara Dune?"
The Walt Disney Company has an obligation to fire actress Gina Carano from The Mandalorian following her Twitter activity. I don’t take this lightly. This is not only something I say as a Star Wars fan but I also feel an obligation to speak out as a Disney shareholder. If Cara Dune is part of The Mandalorian‘s third season, it will make for some rather uncomfortable viewing. Should Dune be brought back for season 3,…"Gina Carano Must Be Fired From The Mandalorian"
The Mandalorian concluded its eight-episode second season with one of the best hours of television in years and I have many thoughts. I have thoughts and there are no shortage of them. But before I get to them, I am going to insert a photo from the episode. But of course, you would not be reading this if you didn’t already watch the episode. If you’re coming from Twitter, I’m sorry that they include photos…"The Mandalorian: Thoughts on the Season Finale"
