Romantic Story of Leia and Han Solo

After the release of the seventh part of the space saga, viewers were upset that the beautiful love story of Princess Leia and the smuggler Han Solo ended with their breakup. In the course of the film, it becomes known that the characters got married and gave birth to a child, but then they broke up. Many assumed that the reason for the breakup was the decision of their son to join the Dark Side. However, according to Fisher herself, everything turned out to be much simpler and more prosaic. Leia was not happy that her husband didn’t quit smuggling, spent too much time with his best friend, Chewbacca, and was also not a very good lover. But for now, let’s start with the beginning and remember how everything started. However, at first, visit one of the best Russian women dating sites and write your own love story.   So,…

Star Wars Episode IX – Release Date & More

December 2018 held a certain significance, I’m sure the same can be said for many people for many reasons, however, for fans of the Star Wars movie saga it became the first time in the past four years without a new Star Wars movie to enthuse about, see, and discuss. Initially scheduled for a May 24 release, the hotly anticipated Star Wars: Episode IX denotes the end of a trilogy; a new chapter which began with JJ Abrahams’ December 17, 2015 release of The Force Awakens, followed by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Not part of the trilogy), with Episode 8 – The Last Jedi having relayed the second part of the adventure on December 14, 2017, and the trilogy will now come to a close with the bumped back, more traditional Christmas release window of Episode IX on December 20, 2019. The news gives Star Wars fans something…

Reylo: Secrets Found in The Last Jedi Novel

Here’s an interesting video from Michael Jae that talks about what’s happening between Finn and Rey, the rumors of Reylo, and more. What does The Last Jedi novel tell us about these potential relationships? Are you a Reylo fan? If you’re one of the many fanboys (and girls) who saw the movie and fell in the love with the idea of a Rey and Kylo romance, then this video is for you. How do you feel about Reylo? First, do you even know what Reylo is? If not, then this might not be for you. It’s the celebrity nickname fans have given to the potential romance between Kylo Ren and Rey. Yes, that’s a thing. So anyway, the film never comes out and says there is anything romantic happening between the two. However, we do get a few intense scenes that imply there are strong feelings between the two. Is there something…

The Star Wars franchise and its sustained success

Over $8 billion dollars in box office sales. Almost $38 billion in toys and merchandise. A sale to Disney around the $4 billion mark. These gigantic, record-breaking figures are enough to suggest that Star Wars is one of the world’s most phenomenally successful movie franchises of all time. There’s also the millions of fans from around the world who name Star Wars as either a favourite movies series, a creative influence, or even a life-changing piece of cinema. So why is Star Wars so popular? Back in 1977, there were plenty of Sci-Fi movies from relatively unknown directors, and 1977’s A New Hope was just another space-flick with a couple of big names. The big difference however was the depth, the vision and the scale that the original Star Wars movie had that made it such a smash-hit success, as well as the brilliant visual effects, well-paced storyline and superb…

How Has Star Wars Inspired Industries?

In 1977, George Lucas created a film series about a galaxy far, far away in which one small boy could change the fate of an entire universe. Now, more than 40 years later, the influence of the iconic Star Wars franchise can be seen in industries of all sizes. From military operations using codenames taken straight out of the movies to religious sects being formed based on the Jedi way of life and more, there is no doubt that Star Wars made a serious impact on the world as we know it. Probably the easiest place to start looking at how Star Wars has influenced the world is by looking at the gaming sector, which has not only embraced the universe, but also taken it to new lengths, continuing to incorporate the memorable characters, themes and settings in new games to this day. In fact, if it wasn’t for Star…

If you haven’t watched all the Star Wars and Marvel movies on Netflix, or if you just want to get your fix and watch them again, you better do it quickly!

Starting in 2019, you’ll have to subscribe to Disney’s service if you want to see these. As of right now, Rogue One is on Netflix but Episode 7 is listed but says “unavailable”.
