I truly love my girlfriend. We have the same sense of humor and get along wonderfully, but she’s never watched anything that wasn’t on Facebook or YouTube before. She’s never even used a DVD or knows what a VHS or cassette tapes are. It’s not her fault because she’s a millennial and country girl who was born in 1998.
According to Google, Boomers were born after WWII, Generation X was before 1980, and Millennials grew up in the middle of the digital age and know nothing but digital entertainment. I was born in 1980, so I’m kinda a hybrid of a Gen Xer and a Millennial, but I would identify more as a Millennial. I do remember vinyl records and tape cassettes, but I loved my Gameboy and NES more. Since we had Apple IIs in every classroom when I was in kindergarten and elementary school I guess I fit the requirement of being a millennial.
I was in army basic training back in 1999 and the drill sergeant thought he would hurt my feelings by calling me a Nintendo generation. I corrected him and told him that I actually play Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, and even N64. Everyone but him thought it was funny. I may have made my fellow soldiers laugh, but my arms were not amused by all the pushups he had me do.
I was a linguist in the military and one of the best ways I learned to get good at any language is through immersion. Back then I was learning Thai, so I bought a bunch of Thai CDs and cassettes from Thai Town in Hollywood and only watched Thai TV shows on VCDs. VCDs were like DVDs, but they were only 700 MBs so you had to have two discs to watch a movie and dozens of them to watch a full series.
After I got out of the military I became an English teacher and I had one student that was just too good. She spoke English with a perfect American accent and was lightyears beyond the other kids. When I told her that I thought she was wasting her time in our school and asked her if she was from the states, she told me that she’s never been. She said that her mom had only one serious rule in the house: All entertainment must be in English. Thinking this was a great idea I did the same with my 5-year-old stepdaughter who could only speak Thai. I bought her a cheap TV and a 64 GB Kingston USB stick with every Disney movie I could fit onto it. I had to put everything into one folder so it would play the next movie seamlessly, but it did the job.
My ultimate goal was to get my girlfriend to be a Star Wars fan, but I knew I couldn’t start with that so I went with Titanic as the first film. It has held up really well over the years and of course, she loved it. She has no idea who Leonardo DiCaprio is, but whenever she sees him in more modern films she’ll ask why Jack looks so old.
Do you know how many letters are in the English alphabet? If you answered twenty-six then you’d be wrong. There are now twenty-four letters in the English alphabet because E and T went home.
When I showed this movie to my daughter when she was eight, she fell asleep when E.T. was all pale and sick dying by the river. She had nightmares all night screaming for E.T. Was he alright? Did he die? Did he ever go home?
My girlfriend is a farmer from the countryside of Laos. When she showed me her hometown there was this super scary bridge that reminded me of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. When I asked her if there were crocodiles below like in Indiana Jones she of course had no idea what I was talking about so we watched all three of the films. Yes, I know there is a fourth, but it sucks and I knew she wouldn’t have liked it.
Which Star Wars film do you think is best to bring in a new fan? I tried with the prequels, but she wasn’t into it so I jumped to Rogue One which my girlfriend liked very much. It also flows well into the original.
I know a lot of fans dislike the sequels, but I saw them with my son when he was young in an IMAX theater and cried at the beginning of The Force Awakens because I never thought I’d ever get to see a new Star Wars in a theater ever again. My girlfriend didn’t want anything to do with them though. She said she wanted to see Luke and Han, not this girl named Rey.
It was quite a pleasure to see the shock on her face when Darth Vader told Luke the truth about his father. Now that we’ve seen all of the Star Wars movies and TV shows I asked her what her favorite moment was and she said it was when the Ewoks help defeat the rebels in Return of the Jedi. I’m torn between the time Luke Skywalker helped save the day in the Mandalorian and when Obi-Wan kicked Vaders ass again. What’s your favorite moment from the Star Wars universe?
I figured I’d call it quits and end with Star Wars, but before I did, I asked Wan, my girlfriend, if I’d covered all of the movies that she remembered and she asked how I could’ve forgotten to mention Top Gun. I didn’t think she’d like it because she never liked any other military movies, but I just wanted her to see it before we saw the new one. I guess it took her breath away. What did you think of the new one? I’ve seen it five times now. It’s truly amazing.
OK, I lied. There was one other military movie that she liked a lot and it was Predator. To me, it’s more of a horror film, but it’s one of Arnold’s best. I wonder why he’s never come back to save the franchise.
I was just four years old when my stepdad took me to see the original Terminator, but I clearly remember him making me promise I wasn’t going to tell my mom that he took me to see it and it made me love it and remember it well, but it hasn’t aged as well as Judgment Day so I just showed her some key scenes from the original and explained what Skynet and T-800s were before we watched the legendary sequel. I’ve never bothered showing her any of the other films because they are all just disappointments.
The Internet is an amazing thing sometimes. Who would’ve thought that a Japanese city pop song from the 1980s would ever become popular with western audiences all these years later? I never listen to Japanese music so I’m not sure how it came up on my YouTube playlist, but something about the black and white picture had me click on it and I instantly fell in love.
I’ve listened to Plastic Love at least a few hundred times in the past month. I just can’t get it out of my head. There is something hypnotic and nostalgic about it. The lyrics don’t start until a minute and seven seconds into the song and there are a few English words throughout the song, but only the ending is fully in English. It doesn’t matter if you don’t understand Japanese because it’s truly an awesome song.
I was a student of Japanese back in high school, but I forgot everything when I learned Thai in the US Army. That was 24 years ago so it’s amazing that I can still read the Hiragana and Katakana characters. I printed out the song and highlighted all the Katakana in red ink. Katakana is usually English but pronounced in a Japanese way. If you are a student of Japanese or ever visit Japan, knowing Katakana can be very useful. I’ve only had the pleasure of visiting Japan a few times but found reading Katakana to be a big help.
There are many covers of Plastic Love in several languages too. I love how the artist captured her look in the English version above.
There is also a Korean version.
After gaining so much popularity, they made an official music video last year. I wonder how she feels about her song blowing up all these years later. There are a few YouTube videos about the song as well.
Alan Levenson, the photographer who took the black and white photo, fought to get the song taken down only to have him get credit for it later and a lot of internet hate for being greedy. Hopefully, both artists got to cash in on the song’s recent popularity. This is a good case for making everything NFT or blockchain-based. Rather than having crazy censorship AI taking everything down, there should be a 50/50 split between the cover and original artists.
In the song, she sings about a lost love she used to dance with only to see his face and think about him later in life in all the other guys’ faces. Mariya Takeuchi said she never got to enjoy the city pop scene because she was busy raising her children, but her song singlehandedly brought back the genre.
If you can get Genshin Impact to work on your device, then I’d suggest that way over this three-year-old predecessor, but if your device is out of date it’s the next best thing. miHoYo made this game first so you may see some similarities and even the same characters as Genshin Impact, but they are completely different games.
If you’re a fan of anime, then you may enjoy playing this game as much as I have. It has a smash-em-up fast-action arcade feel to it.
The open-world part of the game is quite fun, but it’s a bit disappointing not seeing any updates or expansions. Hopefully, miHoYo makes a sequel soon and lets us interact with each other and NFTs in some kind of metaverse. They had a great idea for a game, but it just feels unfinished, forgotten, and a bit beta.
Who’s your favorite?
I can never remember which kind of character is better suited to attack which other characters, but if you make a team with a good variety and jump between them you can figure it out pretty quickly. Using the wrong kind of attack on bosses can sometimes take up to ten times as long.
The cutscenes are pretty entertaining. I took all of these screenshots while playing on my phone and cropped them with Google Photos. All of the YouTube videos are from my Conversation Gaming channel.
So is Honkai Impact 3rd worth a large amount of storage and long loading times?
It’s hard to say how much space this game will eat up because there are so many options, but it will eat up a few gigs to run properly. It will take forever to load in the beginning and anytime you log back in, but once the game is going it can be a pretty fun experience if you’re on a mobile device. I rate it four out of five stars for a mobile game.
Technically, MTV was a product of the 1980s, but it was still relevant and watched by young people up until the 2000s. The biggest complaint I remember most of us had was that they used to only play music videos and moved too much to reality TV shows, but as a young person at the time, it felt refreshing to have shows and a whole TV channel geared towards us. My fondest memory of MTV was when we’d stay up all night watching the top 500 videos of all time. The number one video would always belong to Michael Jackson, Madonna, or Guns N’ Roses but we’d have fun arguing which music video would come out on top. Today, we have YouTube and a fairly good algorithm that predicts pretty well which song to play next, but it just isn’t the same as watching MTV back in the day. You can show your kids the videos you used to watch, but can’t recreate the fun of watching MTV with your friends while your parents were asleep. What was your favorite music video? What was your favorite show on MTV?
I had a hard time restricting this post to just nine things. Feel free to copy my title and make your own post about nine things you miss about that decade. I think I’ll make another post called 8 things I miss about the 1980s too. I don’t think it’s wrong to steal someone else’s title as long as your post is original.
It was fun to remember all the quirks and unique things from the decade of the 1990s. As far as music formats, it was either going to be Boomboxes, Walkman, Minidiscs, CDs, the radio, or even the few of us who still used records in the 1990s, but in the end, I chose cassettes. I used Wikipedia for all of my image resources so some of my decisions were defined by the quality of the picture they provided. I thought restricting my image sources to Wikipedia would be good in case anybody wanted to read more about what I wrote below. I would’ve gone with Sony Walkman for this item, but without the cassette, there wouldn’t be a Walkman.
Minidiscs were really cool too. I am a person who rarely feels jealousy. If I see a handsome young man with a good body, I think good for him, and feel sorry for him at the same time for all the pain he must put himself through to look that way. If I see someone who’s rich, I know that material items don’t bring happiness, but one time in 1999, I was at a dance club and I saw a DJ with a clear plastic box full of MiniDiscs and I remember feeling so jealous of him. I loved MiniDiscs for many reasons. First of all, they looked like something from the future. They had the benefits of both CDs and cassettes and were really small too. I think they would’ve been a lot more popular and widely used if MP3 technology had never come along.
Now some of you may be wondering where are CDs? I actually started off this part with MiniDiscs, then remembered that only tech nerds used them. CDs were definitely a big part of the 1990s, but they suck in my opinion. For one thing, they’re still with us today and still suck. The names may have changed to DVD or Blu-ray, but they are still easily stolen and scratched. Although I still have a fond memory of seeing a CD for the first time and seeing its rainbow in the sunlight, I would grow to hate the technology in no time. I do remember that my first CD was The Lion King soundtrack. And the first CD I purchased with my own money was Queen Greatest Hits I & II. I thought it was such a great deal to get my first two CDs for the price of one at Fred Meyer. The first DVD I purchased was Army of Darkness with Bruce Campbell. Do you remember your first CD?
Cassettes are another technology that was around before the 1990s that we all associate with that decade. The technology goes back to WWII and the compact cassettes we all remember came out in the 1960s. Speaking of the 60s, I’d really like to read a post about 6 things you miss from the 60s. I can only guess since I was born in 1980, but ask anybody who was alive back then about that decade and I can guarantee you that their face will light up and they will most likely remember Rock and Roll, NASA, and really cool cars.
For me, I remember getting in arguments with girlfriends in my car about silly things and them ejecting my CD then throwing it out the window. I’d of course stop and search for it only to find it never works again even if I bought one of those fancy CD repairers, but if you did the same to a cassette tape, it would be just fine. I also remember being useful to friends because I was one of the few people who could fix a cassette with just a pencil and some scotch tape.
Why were movies from the 1990s the best? I was shocked when my girlfriend had never seen a Hollywood movie in her life. She has only watched crappy Thai dramas on Facebook and YouTube, so when it was time to introduce her, I of course showed her Terminator 2, but I started her off with Titanic. I just showed her a few scenes from 1984’s Terminator on YouTube just to introduce her to Sarah Conner and T-800s. I’m not saying all modern movies are horrible. I really wanted to get her into Star Wars so I showed her Rogue One before episodes IV, V, and VI, but she doesn’t even know the prequels exist. She was really shocked to hear what Darth Vader had to say to Luke in Cloud City. How would you break in a Hollywood virgin? So far she’s seen Titanic, E.T., Terminator 2, Rogue One, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Army of Darkness, GoldenEye, and Red Notice.
I was a teenager in the 1990s, so I remember either straight up sneaking in the back door of the theater or buying just one ticket then sneaking into as many other films as we could. Another trick we would pull to stick it to the man was to have a little gang of friends. One would work at McDonald’s or KFC and sneak out free food. One would work at the grocery store and ignore a bit of shoplifting, and one friend would work at the movie theater and let us watch as many free movies as we wanted. We’d even have the movie ticket in case a company man with a flashlight showed up.
Speaking of movies, who can ever forget Blockbuster? I think they are a good example of how having a huge ego and thinking you’re king of the hill can lead to your own demise. Blockbuster could’ve bought out Netflix for nothing back in the day, but now they no longer exist.
Be kind and please rewind stickers were even put on DVD boxes by Blockbuster employees. Although I rented my fair share of DVDs and VHS tapes from Blockbuster, I would go there mostly to rent Nintendo games and also remember sneaking into the adult section just to sneak a peek at the adult videos. I always wished I had a pair of star-shaped screwdrivers so I could swap out whatever crappy NES, SNES, or N64 ROMs with the ones I was renting. Did any of you think or actually do that?
Today any game from the 1990s can be easily downloaded and emulated on a phone or PC, but the only ones I keep coming back to are the N64 games. Riding my bike to the “SuperMall” and buying an N64 and a Super Mario 64 cartridge will always be one of my favorite memories from any decade. It was September 29th, 1996, and the electronics mega-store which no longer exists and I can’t remember its name either had a contest on a huge screen. If you could get the secret castle star where you slide down in under 21 seconds, then you could win a free Mario game. It’s one of the moments in time I wish I could use my current gaming skills to go back to. I would also never open or damage that Mario game knowing that it could sell for a million dollars today. There were many great games for the N64, but the first one, Super Mario 64, was definitely my favorite. How many times has that happened in video gaming history? Where the first game was the best? Maybe only ever with the Gameboy and Tetris.
I never owned or even liked a Honda CR-X, but it seemed like everybody else did back then. My first car was a pickup truck, a Chevy Luv. It was a total piece of junk, but I drove that little guy to San Diego and even to Texas without it ever breaking down. The only reason I got rid of it was because the communist state of California made (and still makes it) almost impossible for any old car to pass emissions. I sold it to a Mexican friend for $500 and he told me it kept on going well into the 2000s. If I were to ask you for a lift today and handed you a one-dollar bill, it would be a total insult, but back in the 1990s, just a few friends handing you one-dollar bills could actually put some gas in the tank.
I didn’t get my first peak of pornography until I was 16 years old. I’m not a psychologist, but I think it’s perfectly healthy for a teenage boy to see some beautiful naked women. It was very exciting to see. I can’t see how it’s a good thing that kids can see porn so easily before they’re ready to see or even like it. If some boys want to see titties today, all they have to do is open Twitter or do a Google search. I had to bribe a bum to buy my first Playboy magazine at 7-11 and when I was 18 and old enough to buy it legally, I still felt so embarrassed to wait in line and ask the 7-11 clerk for it.
I grew up on a small airport in South Dakota, so aviation has always been interesting to me. Even when I was a kid, it felt like the technology had hit some kind of wall. When asking my grandfather why it was so, his answer was, “Because the god-damned lawyers ruined it.”
My grandfather had good reasons to hate lawyers and they very well may have ruined general aviation, but surely not military or commercial aviation. The F-16 still looks cool today. Flying on a jet has not changed at all since I was a kid. Well, maybe a bit. The cabin crew got a lot fatter and now there are TV screens, but the general look and feel of commercial aircraft are sadly exactly the same, only worse. How the hell did that happen? It’s stuff like that which fuel conspiracy theories. I don’t have a conspiracy theory, other than that it’s Generation X’s fault. Millennials may be a bunch of whiney-ass bitches, but Generation X was named appropriately. They did X. They did nothing. They definitely are the worst generation. Seriously what did they do besides continue using horrible banking and invent the iPhone? One thing I really miss about the 1990s and before that was the whole airport and airplane experience. I remember you could send your loved ones all the way to their seats and even meet the Captain and take a look at all the aircraft controls in the cockpit before 9-11.
Before making this post I asked my followers on Facebook and Noise.Cash what they miss about the 1990s. Nothing. I got nothing. What a bunch of like monkeys. I showed a few people my draft of this post and the only thing I got was how they miss landlines. What’s there to miss about that? OK, maybe a few things…
I remember if I wanted to eavesdrop on my parents’ phone conversations, I’d first remove the phone line so they wouldn’t hear me pick up the line, then slowly slide it back in without clicking it and covering the noise of my breathing. Sometimes I’d just break the little snap off and have an extra line I’d use just for listening in on them. There was also the fun of making prank calls before *69 or caller-ID came along. (I still like using the Arnold Schwarzenegger soundboard to prank call people today.)
Today, you can go out and buy the latest iPhone, but unless you truly need it for the camera, you just look like a cunt trying to look cool, but anybody who had a pager back in the day looked cool as fuck. You were either a soldier, doctor, businessman, or drug dealer if you had a pager. I never had a pager, but I felt they were the coolest tech at the time.
Thank you for reading about my 1990s nostalgia. I used Wikipedia for all these images and shared the links to the articles below. What do you miss about the 1990s? What did I forget to mention?
Marvel and Disney have an opportunity to redo their best movie moments into half-hour animations with their new show, What If… and judging by the first episode, this looks like it’s going to be an entertaining show.
I really like this cel-shading animation style. It feels like real-life people were just traced or converted into a cartoon. The voice acting and characters felt just like their live-action counterparts.
The first story looks into the universe where it was Peggy Carter who got the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers. I know most guys feel so sick of how Hollywood portrays women as invincible simply for being women and the male characters are always weak pathetic pushovers, but I really enjoyed all of the action scenes and story without feeling that way at all. Even though this is a different universe from the one we knew before, it’s interesting how some things were still destined to be like Peggy and Steve’s love for each other, even though he’s still a weakling from Brooklyn.
Youtube sucks now. Spotify has literally ruined the internet for me by stealing my favorite talent and putting it behind their wall. Sure, you can stream a lot for free, but I can’t. It won’t work from my location and they are good at detecting VPNs. And I really haven’t liked any of the new shows that have come out since my Game of Thrones and The Mandalorian fix got taken away, but I will look forward to watching new What If… episodes every week.
Thanks for reading. Which What If story are you looking forward to or think they should make?
The internet is crying that another beloved gem from the past, He-Man, got Kathleen Kennedy’d.
So what? He-Man is lame. It just makes me respect SKELETOR even more. He didn’t let Hollywood or three decades or positively inclusive and wonderful advancements in society change his style or who he was; a purely evil rip-off of Darth Vader, Death, and Ghost Rider created for the purpose of selling cool toys.
Prince Adam may be put in his place by strong women often, but he and his scaredy-cat were always a carbon copy of Superman’s Clark Kent, so there’s nothing new there. What did people want from this character? For him to start slapping hoes telling everyone that he’s the damn prince and threatening everyone with his, “Don’t make me make He-Man show up again!”
There may be a same-sex relationship and a character changed from a white dude to a black dude. Oh no! Who cares? Honestly, the feeling of having another memory from my past being ruined never came up during this five-part (first half of ten) continuation of the original 1980s cartoon and Dolph Lundgren live-action film. Besides, I just wanted to see SKELETOR, and ain’t nobody puts him in his place. Not woke lesbians, not He-Man, no-one commands SKELETOR!
As you can see I’m happy to see SKELETOR again. The show should be called, The Skeletor Show, as Star Trek: The Next Generation should be called, The Jean-Luc Picard and Data Show. Having Skeletor voiced by one of the greatest voice actors of all time helps make his character even better. I really doubt I’m the only person who watched Masters of the Universe Revelations just to see what Skeletor’s been up to after all this time.
The characters are typical lazily drawn Saturday morning cartoons, but the background animation helped modernize the look while staying true to the artistic style we loved in the 80s. Masters of the Universe Revelations isn’t the best animation I’ve seen this year, but it’s not a woke in your face dumpster fire as the internet claims either. Like I said before, I’m just glad to see SKELETOR causing problems again. Our world may have changed, but he’s still perfectly evil.
I’m really lazy. I mean like super lazy. I may be one of the laziest people ever born. I sleep around 16 hours a day and now that we can earn money in our sleep with great DeFi projects like CUB, I have even less motivation to write posts here on HIVE, but I enjoyed Masters of the Universe Revelations enough to create this post recommending it to you and my friends.
I got all of the images for this post by pressing the PRINT SCREEN button on my computer while watching Masters of the Universe Revelations on Netflix. I then uploaded the images to Google Photos and chose the auto-enhance and crop to 16:9 aspect ratio in the edit menu. Thanks for reading. May the power of Skeletor be with you.
The Union may have won the military victory during the Civil War, but racist southerners won the cultural war. Even after a hundred years since the 14th Amendment became law, many Americans had to fight for their right to be seen as equal by their states and the federal government. Amend: The Fight for America shares the stories of the many Americans who stood for and even died for equality.
At first, I was thrown off by the actor who was quoting Fredrick Douglass because he looks nothing like him but, then there was Pedro Pascal as Abraham Lincoln and other Hollywood stars quoting people of different ages, sex, and race. Samuel L. Jackson portrayed Martin Luther King Jr. well, but at no point did he say, “I’m sick of these motherfucking racists on this motherfucking continent!”
Fredrick Douglass is remembered as the greatest speaker of the 19th century. He could give a speech to a huge crowd and change their hearts and opinions with his amazing words. He will always be remembered as an early champion for civil rights, but I don’t think most people realize what a bad-ass he was. One day, while his master, who was also most likely his father, was giving young Douglass a beating. He decided then and there that he wasn’t going to take it anymore! While Maryland and his master viewed him as property, he was in fact a free man! He then beat the shit out of his master and told him that if the other slaves found out about it that he would lose face, so they’d both never speak of it again. He ran away and published his book which would only put a huge target on his back for southern slave catchers. He even tried to get a commission as an officer in the Union Army which the president was in favor of, but the army would not allow.
Heavy Weight Champion
How would you feel if you won the belt for the UFC heavyweight, but Dana White told you that you are in fact the champion, but your prize money and belt would actually go to the loser? Well, that’s what happened after the Civil War. The 14th Amendment had passed and slavery was outlawed but terrorist groups like the KKK, racist politicians, and a corrupt Supreme Court made it a worthless gesture. It wasn’t until Martin Luther King Jr. and his brilliant strategy of non-violent disobedience helped to end Jim Crow. If I had a time machine, I’d really love to take Will Smith, the main narrator of the series, and Martin Luther King Jr. back in time to meet Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. They would have a lot to talk about and it would make for the most epic podcast of all time.
Equality for All
This Netflix original series doesn’t just focus on the struggle of black Americans, but all Americans who had to fight for their rights. It begins with the Civil War and leads all the way up to the present day. There are some people, that sadly, I’d never heard of until watching this documentary six-part series. It doesn’t matter what religion, sex, race, or orientation you are because the United States Constitution gives you unalienable rights even if you are NOT a citizen. It’s important that we know our rights and the heroes who gave everything to make our rights a reality. History and Civics teachers will be assigning Amend: The Fight for America to their students as required viewing for many years to come.
This show is so good, I’m sad I can’t binge watch all of the episodes right away. The pilot episode is available free on Syfy.
What’s it about?
An alien on a mission whose UFO gets struck by lighting and crashes near a small town in Colorado has to recover his technology from the snow before it melts. Resident Alien is three genres in one. It’s a drama, sci-fi, and comedy and is great as all three. The story sucked me in right away and I was LOL a lot. Since he’s stuck on Earth he must take human form and try to fit in. He’s smarter and stronger than any human so he’s confident he’ll have no problems. He watches Law and Order and surfs the net to learn English before he goes into town.
Who are the actors?
Sara Tomko and Alan Tudyk have been on TV and in Hollywood movies before, but I suspect this show will really make them into big stars like The Mandalorian did for Pedro Pascal. OK maybe not that big, but this show will definitely boost their acting careers because they help make the show believable.
The alien crashes in the very beginning of the story and I only mentioned the first few minutes, so that’s all I’ll say other than it’s definitely worth watching. Smallville is still my favorite alien gets stuck on Earth story. How many are there? I remember E.T., Transformers, He-Man, Mork and Mindy, and Alf. Which did I forget?
Star Wars has just exploded with exciting new content! Thanks to the success of The Mandalorian, we’ll be getting a whole bunch of new adventures. How great was that season finale? It gave me goosebumps. I felt like a kid in the theater again! Thank you for showing Star Wars the way Mando!
This is the show I’m the most excited to watch. I love Ahsoka. She is a great character and will surely make for a great series. We got a peak of what’s to come with her appearance in The Mandalorian‘s second season and it was pure awesomeness. There isn’t an official trailer for Ahsoka yet, but this fan made concept trailer on Leia’s Lair Youtube channel is pretty cool.
I remember George Lucas talking about the possibility of this show many years ago, but the technology wasn’t ready until now. It looks amazing. I can’t wait to see how Obi-wan has been doing and the return of Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader.
I never thought I’d see Cassian return after he got smoked with Jyn by the Death Star in Rouge One, but he’ll be back for 12 episodes in 2022.
Patty Jenkins looks like she’s going to really put her heart into this film. It’s going to be fun seeing a new squadron of X-wing pilots kicking ass!
The Bad Batch
I honestly have ignored all of the Star Wars animated series until I noticed their characters appearing in The Mandalorian, but I’ll give this one a shot.
The High Republic
This Youtube video doesn’t show us much other than the writers, but it looks like an interesting show too. It will be set 200 years before The Phantom Menace, so a younger Master Yoda will probably be the only character we’ll recognize.
Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? It will be fascinating to learn the ways of the Sith and to explore the secrets The Dark Side.
Rangers of the New Republic
This is where our favorite characters from The Mandalorian will likely reappear. I hope Cara Dune doesn’t get cut by Earth’s crazy cancel culture.
There will also be a show about Lando, the droids, and a Japanese animation called Visions to look forward to. After the fan backlash of the sequels and Solo, I was really worried for the future of Star Wars, but it looks like we’re going to have a lot of Mando quality entertainment to keep us happy for years to come! Which show are you most excited to see? I have spoken. This is the way.
