With Star Wars so much to talk about right now. Star Wars as everyone knows is coming into the 9th movie. There is much anticipation, but there is a ton of Star Wars stuff to talk about outside of the movie. Disney + started last week and I’m sure many of us already have signed up or tried the free week trial. Which this is well worth signing up for especially if you’re a Star Wars fan. I watched the first episode of The Mandalorian.
I thought it was a very interesting start to a new series. They packed a lot into a 40 minute spot. It was a quick development to some new characters with a lot of what Star Wars was built on especially a Return of the Jedi feel to a lot of the props and characters. I enjoyed it so much that I watched Return of the Jedi after. Its been a long time since I watched this movie. Watching it on my high definition 50 inch TV was actually like watching it for the first time all over again. I never was able to see the originals on the big screen. So I really was able to get the full affect of the special effects and really get a clear shot at a lot of the background characters that were hard to see on the old tube TVs. I’m looking forward to watching all of the other movies as well.
On a different note, who the heck designed the Walmart Star Wars figure display. No pegs, just figures shoved into a cardboard display all jammed together with packaging getting twisted and torn. Sad to see how some person at the top wants to sell figures for $13.00 a pop and have them in such poor condition, not to mention the distribution of 10 of the same figure nobody wants with 1 figure mixed in that is impossible to find. I know people just like to order on line these days and not have to get off their lazy butt to go to the store, but I still enjoy going to the store and finding a nice treasure. Oh well that’s my rant on that situation, but all in all I feel pretty happy about the Star Wars explosion right now. I can’t wait to see the vintage figures come out, fingers crossed they don’t cancel this wave, and I cant wait to see the bitter sweet ending to the movie that almost didn’t make it to the box office. I hope everyone gets to take full advantage of all there is out there Star Wars right now.
