Somehow, Natalie Portman has returned to Star Wars…..maybe.
While it initially seemed like things were going to be ok, Disney’s Star Wars has been a not so mixed bag of mostly bad over the years since.
Is Reva the first EVER Sith Force Ghost? Unlikely but in no way ruled out! We start out with a starkly unexplained sequence at odds with the show’s time frame and continuity.
Because we have Ewan McGregor reprising his role this show is just the Star Wars version of Star Trek Picard. In other words- super damaging and very hard to watch.
Cause and effect are out the window and if a police department used this movie for training they’d be accused of Racial and Gender Profiling.
The Kenobi shows mission is not to entertain but to tear down other Star Wars. The presence of Ewan McGregor makes this show Star Wars’ version of ‘Picard.’
The debut peaks when we get Jimmy Smits and McGregor together for some damn fine acting that absolutely rises above the material.
The re-modified Modifier standing by a Bacta Tank in front of a corpse that WILL go on whether it should or not really was a fitting way to end this show and a real referendum on the state of Star Wars.
the core of this episode involves franchise hero Luke Skywalker being something fans have wanted for a long time – a kind and powerful Jedi Master teaching a new student the ways of the Force
Rolling in to Episode Five of Book of Boba Fett the show veers away from everything that’s happened til now and rejoins The Mandalorian
Episode four hit new lows in casting, character names, music and costuming.
The 36 minute experience was an almost random series of truly meandering images and occasional dialogue with a few bloodless fights and chases
Boba Fett’s successes in this episode are because his opponents aren’t what we’re told. They are also very stupid. The ‘fearless assassin’ Fennec captured breaks in seconds due to the threat of the Rancor- a creature that’s dead about 6 years this point.
“This was the best you could do? The show was planned at least 2 years ago. There was time.”

After 41 years of waiting we have our Han Solo movie. The special Edition release of Attack of the Clones is about as good. It’s not as good as Revenge of the Sith.
