My message to those boycotting ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’

I guess some people are “boycotting” the latest Star Wars flick, Solo: A Star Wars Story. The reasons are many. Some of them I even agree with. The actor playing the title role Alden Ehrenreich doesn’t look or sound a thing like Harrison Ford. Lando Calrissian played by Donald Glover is now something called a pansexual. It’s like a bisexual, … Continue reading “My message to those boycotting ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’”

Why don’t our Chinese economic overlords like our ‘Star Wars’ movies?

I just read that the newest Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, is no longer available in China. It’s been pulled out of theaters. The reason? The Chinese just don’t like Star Wars. This fact makes me sad on many fronts.

Why is the novel of ‘The Last Jedi’ taking so long to publish?

The novel version of Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t hit bookstores until March 6. That’s nearly two months from now. I don’t get it that. When Star Wars first came out in 1977, the novel version hit bookstores before the movie hit the theaters. I know this because this is how I first consumed the … Continue reading “Why is the novel of ‘The Last Jedi’ taking so long to publish?”
