Star Wars: Ahsoka (2016) – E.K. Johnston

Back when I first started the blog, I wrote a post about the fate of Ahsoka Tano. Of course, at that time, Ahsoka was only a Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan, there was lots for her to encounter and deal with before Clone Wars came to a close, and now, she’s a regular on Rebels – I…

Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith (2005) – George Lucas

  The Sci-Fi Chronicles brings me to the final entry in the Prequel Trilogy, and arguably the strongest despite some troubling moments. While still suffering from the too clean, too digital, green-screen EVERYTHING, this one feels the closest to a Star Wars movie, and that opening sequence through the space battle over Coruscant is highly…

Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (2002) – George Lucas

And while a considerable step-up from The Phantom Menace, this one is still too clunky and too digital. Jonathan Hale helps Lucas out on the…

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999) – George Lucas

  Remember, right back before the Phantom Menace came out, when anticipation was reaching a fever pitch? I miss that. Sure we had the wonderful build up to The Force Awakens, but the gap between films was no where near as long as it had been for those of us who had been invested in…

Star Wars: Dark Disciple (2015) – Christie Golden

  The new Star Wars expanded canon universe is well on its way to being very impressive, and it’s book like Golden’s Dark Disciple that are doing it. Based on a set of unproduced scripts from the Clone Wars series, the book explores a pair of interesting characters and expands on their lives, their emotions,…

Star Wars: Heir to the Jedi (2015) – Kevin Hearne

  More Star Wars!!! Taking place in the early days after the destruction of the Death Star and before the more recently published, The Weapon of a Jedi, we are plunged into a bit of a meandering adventure as author Kevin Hearne puts Luke Skywalker through his paces, as the young man takes his first…
