Fandom Squee Day 3: Star Wars

Happy Friday! I have a very busy day but happy to take some time out to rave about another fandom I love:

Star Wars
And this isn't just the Force Awakens, all Star Wars (even the stuff Disney says isn't canon).

(I love this gif so much)
Firstly: The Original Trilogy

Way ahead of it's time and still (in my opinion) the best set of classic films ever. They dared to create a world in other space with bad cgi and weird aliens. Han Solo has to be my favourite character but (for you who know me well) I love that type of character, the loveable rogue who doesn't care what anyone thinks of him and it all out for himself until he meets the protagonist.

Next: The Prequels

Unpopular opinion alert - I love the prequels! Now yes the plot and acting wasn't great but I love them. They were my first introduction to Star Wars and to be honest I like them more than the orginals. I loved Ewan McGregor as Obi Wan Kenobi (still waiting on a solo film) and Hayden gets so much flack for what was bad writing!

Finally: The Force Awakens

I love this film so much. So much, saw it opening night and have not stopped raving about it since. Poe is my favourite character and I can't wait to see more of him in the next one :) Plus BB-8 is the cutest little droid ever! The plot balanced the aspects of the old with introducing the new characters and Luke got to be melodramtic just like the good old days!

So what does everyone think?

I'm an Obi-wan fan...and Han...I want more Ewan as Obi! And am not about to forive Kylo for what he did!

And I am so freakin' excited to see Diego Luna join the Star Wars-verse!

I think Han's still alive. I am good at spotting wild theories and this is one wild theory I am not letting go.

Oh my god Diego Luna as Cassian Andor, I barely know about Cassian and that Man owns my soul!

I'm all for Han being alive. My daughter will be overjoyed for sure as she was REALLY pissed when that happened.

I've not seen Diego in much, but I've loved him in what I have seen. I'm hoping Cassian will open up a new bunch of rols for him...and yep, Cassian owns my soul too though we don't know much about him yet ;)

Well if you (and your daughter) are interested I wrote a whole theory on how and why Han Solo could be alive Here

I saw Diego in minor roles in Frida and in Milk, he's pretty good. I am absolutely sure Star Wars is gonna propel his career.

I saw those! He also has a smallish part in Elysium, which I've seen, and will be in the remake of Flatliners. I need to see more of him :D

I'm totally open to any theory that keeps Han alive...but my daughter's afraid to believe it...she doesn't want to be crushed if it turns out not to be true lol

OMG, I had not heard Diego was coming to Star Wars!!! Now I'm even more excited! I love him, and have seen quite a few of his films, including the one where he and Gael Garcia Bernal get to kiss. Yum!

I'm jealous...I think I've only seen him in 3 other films but I've adored him every time. Its hard around here to find anything he's done. I need more (especially that one you mention ;) )
I'm excited for the film, but that excitement is multiplied by 100 because of him :D

Most people I know don't even know who he is!

Oh, you should see it, it's good (Y Tu Mamá También)!

And yeah, with you there and people I know not knowing who he is, but he's so pretty he's hard to miss! ;-)

I gave in to temptation, went on an ebay binge, and found that one and a few other of his films. Merry Christmas to me. :D

Wish I could find his Casanova though...but I'm not sure its actually out yet

I LOVE THE ORIGINALS SO MUCH! Like you have no idea. Han and Leia are litterally my parents.

Speaking of Han and Leia....

Am I the only one here who thinks Han Solo faked his death? I am pretty sure he did.

As much as I would love it, I think he's gone. Harrison Ford didn't really even want to be in that film let alone another one and JJ said that Han had to be killed by Kylo to help cement Kylo as a proper villain :(

JJ Abrams also said Han Solo wasn't important to the Star Wars Series so I dont believe a dime of what JJ Says. And for someone who hates it Harrison promoted the Movie and the DVD release alot.

I can't even begin to put my love for Star Wars into words.

Darth Vader is on my phone case, while my Kindle case is R2-D2 ; I own at least 10 Star Wars t-shirts ; I own six different lightsabers ; I have the original version of the original trilogy on VHS, the THX version on VHS, the special editions on VHS and DVD PS the special editions suck

Poe Dameron had me at "Who talks first?" ; BB-8 had me at lighter-up ; Rey is just wonderful in every way possible ; I need more Maz in my life ; Say what you want about the prequels.. but they gave us Darth Maul, an archive joke that validated my college degree, and gave me Obidala for life. ♥

I actually started writing Han&Jania fanfic without ever having read the EU.. and I need to stop now, because I'm even making myself nauseous. LOL

Ha! I do love all this about you, my dear! Stay as you are forever! As someone who saw A New Hope in cinemas when it was simply known as 'Star Wars' in 1977, I have and always will be a fan, even without the light sabers!!!

I wasn't old enough to see the original movies in the theater, but I saw them MANY times by way of the rental places. :D

The disadvantage to having access to Walt Disney World is that I have been surrounded by SW forever. And, thanks to tri-weekly visits to the park-soon-to-be-known-as-Star-Warsland to pick bizarra up from work... I get THREE different stores of ~stuff~ to browse and atmosphere to breathe in.

It's good. ;)
