“I No Longer Walk the Jedi Path” – How Japanese Subtitles Added Extra Depth to Ahsoka and Vader’s Showdown

A translation can make – or break – a work of fiction but as long-time Japan resident and amateur Japanologist Dave Hackerson discovered, sometimes it can improve upon an already emotive scene. Dave, who goes by the username @NorskAkiruno on Twitter, has long been interested in the ways that Japanese philosophy can be applied to the Star Wars universe and how that universe has itself been influenced by Japanese aesthetics, samurai ...

Could Ahsoka Tano Be in the New Cassian Andor Series?

On November 8, Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced that Lucasfilm was developing a new live-action series centred around Rogue One’s rebel spy, Cassian Andor.

Guest Article: #CloneWarsRewatch: Using Twitter and Rabbit.TV to Connect With ‘Star Wars’ Fans

I watch a lot of media. It’s true. If I’m not on YouTube watching someone play a video game, I’m on Netflix. If I’m not watching something on Netflix, it’s Hulu. Not on Hulu? I’m searching for something new on Amazon Prime or popping in a movie I’ve seen hundreds of times before. I’ve probably watched Simpsons episodes hundreds of thousands of times. I’ve put myself through two rewatches of 11 and then 12 seasons of ... [Continue Reading]

Guest Article: Saved the Series Is: Five Things I Want to See in the ‘Clone Wars’ Revival

I vividly remember the exact moment I knew that the Clone Wars series had been revived. I was at work – adulting sucks – and of course I had Twitter open on my desktop. When you aren’t able to go to San Diego Comic Con, you live vicariously through some of the luckiest nerds ever. Anyway, I was constantly refreshing Bryan Young’s profile to stay updated on the latest from the Clone Wars 10th Anniversary Panel and when Bryan ... [Continue Reading]

Guest Article: The Best Swords – Elements of Kurosawa’s ‘Sanjuro’ in Ahsoka Tano and Satine Kryze

There has been little secret about the influence Akira Kurosawa on Star Wars. George Lucas has always been open about how the Japanese filmmaker was a major influence on his work, citing The Hidden Fortress as the inspiration for A New Hope (especially in the characters of Artoo and Threepio) (Kaminski, 2012), attempting to hire Kurosawa-staple actor Toshiro Mifune first as Obi-Wan and then as Vader (Blair, 2015), and filming the cantina fight ...

Guest Post: The Top 5 Saddest Moments from ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’

When I saw that Kelly (the admin of Team Ahsoka) had put out a call for guest articles and that a lot of people were responding, I decided to join in the fun. At first, I had to think about what I could do, if I should write something about Ahsoka or Star Wars: The Clone Wars. And then I thought, “Why don’t I make a top five list of something from The Clone Wars… and include Ahsoka in it?!” Before I begin, I wanted to say ... [Continue Reading]

Guest Post: Ahsoka and ‘The Clone Wars’: A Step Into a Larger World

When I read about Kelly’s search for guest writers to celebrate the tenth anniversary of The Clone Wars, I jumped at the chance. But when I started writing and I stared at my blank screen, the doubts came crawling in. First, let me introduce myself: I’m Jordi, I hail from Catalonia, and my wife Heleia and I are big fans of Star Wars. You could say we’re children of the prequels; we were 14 when The Phantom Menace was released. ... [Continue Reading]

Guest Post: Discovering ‘The Clone Wars’: Better Late Than Never

I have a confession to make. Yes, I run a Star Wars blog; yes, my daughter’s middle name is Amidala; and yes, I’ve got enough toy ships and figures to stage an reenactment of the entire saga. But until two and half years ago, I’d never seen The Clone Wars. As if that wasn’t deserving of admonishment enough, I didn’t even know what an Ahsoka was. Let me first say my seven Hail Mitth’raw’nuruodos and then I’ll explain. I ... [Continue Reading]

Interview with Mandalorian Captures

Shortly after Dave Filoni dropped the bombshell announcement that Star Wars: The Clone Wars would be back for another tour of duty, amazing screenshots of 332nd Battalion clone troopers started showing up on my Twitter timeline. The 332nd Battalion’s Ahsoka-themed armour is only available (as a mod) to gamers playing Star Wars: Battlefront II on PC but thanks to the efforts of modders and gaming photographers, we’re finally able to ...

Guest Post: Constructing Lightsabers, Creating Community

So, let me tell you a story, starting from the end. Take a quick look at the YouTube thumbnail for The Star Wars Show, from 28th June, 2017. Look at that grin! When I saw this, my heart exploded with joy and, for a brief moment, I was the happiest and proudest Star Wars fanboy in the galaxy, because you all know who that is… and I built those lightsabers she is holding. Yes, really. It all began when I decided the time had finally come to ... [Continue Reading]
