D23 and Comic Con were back to back weekends. Why would I subject myself to such a strenuous schedule? I wouldn’t have it any other way, feeding the inner nerd two weekends in a row was definitely tasking on the body but it was so much fun.
The episode Twin Suns in Star Wars Rebels season 3 premiered this weekend. If you haven’t kept up with Rebels, you should go back and start this series. In no time you’ll catch up to season 3, in fact, you’d probably get there faster than light speed 🙂
This show has been a lot of fun, and season 3 amps that up in a way I was not expecting.
The latest episode (Twin Suns) cements this series to the original trilogy even more. The last scene hit me and left me emotional in way that I wasn’t expecting, it manages to tie in the prequels with the original trilogy. Bravo!

I’ve tried to pick two movies out of the year that were my favorites. One tends to be the movie I’ve viewed the most, a lot of the times it’s the movie that I’ve paid to see more than once. And the other movie is one that I just want to be recognized or pointed out. This year was the year for nostalgia.
(it’s a tie for most viewed in the theatre)
Mad Max: Fury Road (3 times in the theatre)
Star Wars: The Force Awakens (3 times in the theatre)
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is finally out. This is truly the most anticipated movie of the year. Now that the world has been given ample time to watch this film, here, we, go!
The Force Awakens takes place about thirty years after Luke became a Jedi and the second Death Star was destroyed. Now he’s disappeared and the First Order (what became of the Galactic Empire) and the Resistance (backed by the Republic and led by General Leia) search the galaxy to find him.
The film is directed by J.J. Abrams, it stars Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Max von Sydow. It’s written by Lawrence Kasdan & J.J. Abrams and Michael Arndt.
Now that the weekend has past you’ve all had a chance to see The Force Awakens, spoilers ahoy! Continue reading

Here’s some more pictures from the Star Wars Celebration
Anthony Daniels – C-3PO
This past weekend was the Anaheim 2015 Star Wars Celebration. This is the first time I went to a Star Wars only convention, I was a bit skeptical leading up to the event. I had never been, and having in Southern California was a plus, meaning that I could attend. But I was most fearful of being able to “walk” the floor in only an hour or two and then be done. so glad that I was wrong, I ended up spending nearly 8 hours at the Anaheim convention center.
I actually went to a panel as well. What made the time there great was spending it with friends, so the line waiting wasn’t that bad. The costumes of attendees were also ‘most impressive,” most if not all of the costumes were on the higher end of the spectrum.
But what made it extra fun were the photo ops that were throughout the floor. The detail in re-creating sets and props from the movie was absolutely amazing.
