Star Wars Rebels season 3 (mid season) trailer

 

Hello DZ Rebellion welcome to (Danger Zone Comics) so of course we have a very, very exciting mid-season trailer of Star Wars Rebels so with this trailer being released it and brings out a lot of spoilers and I know there are a lot of Star Wars fans out there “such as me.” so let’s just say that there is a huge ending that everybody will get excited about as a Star Wars fan I was like that is very interesting and with me being excited about this star wars mania, and excited about the Death Troopers coming into the series it holds so much joy seeing that all our dreams came true; it’s like forging Star Wars Rogue one into a cartoon with Star Wars Rebels and Darth Maul on a hunt for Kenobi let’s just say that it’s been very interesting on how this turn of events keeps holding my gut into place on what would happen to Maul, but my fellow rebellion without further ado let the trailer begins….

Review

So I really like the trailer it brings it brings out a lot of action, thrills, and excitement. It also holds good Mandalorian bloodline battles, and (Sabines) tied’s that entails her and her mother. And holy hell more fun is in the Force with the (Rogue One) characters such as Mon Motha who’s appeared in many flims and media of the Star Wars series, to see how this it’s going to turn out Darth Maul vs Obi Wan, Sabine’s family ( The mandalorians), Earth Vader dancing on Ashoka’s grave”jokes”. I have to say that the Mandalorians or Mail will whine up joining the Rebellion… “Probably not my fellow rebellion” but guys and girls this is going to be interesting turn of events (Grand Admiral Thrawn) might actually discover who really is Fulcrom which we all know who he is, but  will he kill Agent Kallus who was the big shocker to know that he was a good guy; and a spy into the Empire but isn’t the truth is he really the fulcrome?

Star Wars Rouge One Review

A long time ago in Danger Zone Far Far Away…

Hello everybody I am with the force and I’m here to give you the Star Wars Rogue one review this movie has brought out trumendous information in the Star Wars universe before the episode 4 and is very well done without the lightsabers battle I really loved it. very anticipating actions and I had to put out is the death Troopers and just as you know there is no spoilers, but I gotta say is good and so with the Star Wars Rogue one I find it interesting how they fit the story and with the events of Star Wars Episode 4 and it is very into the story on how the Death Star was built but you guys already know about so let’s get into this so right now when I seen the movie I was highly surprised on how to set it up and the director for Godzilla did an excellent job.


Order Star Wars The Black Series 6-Inch Action Figures Wave 7 Case from Entertainment Earth!

I find the characters really exciting to look at and yes there is a lot of humor in this movie which you guys should already expect and yes Stars wars haves a lot of action sequences the story was pretty dark like the prior episode Force Awakens, now I have to say that most things in the movie got me like “men they could have done more with this character.” For example the back story of Cassian which would be nice as well, but hey the force is strong….right? Well yes it is my fellow Jedi’s The story is well put and space battle is well momentously exciting Donnie Yen which we all know who he played “Ip” which I found myself training in (wing chun) likes seeing this guy in action “I mean come on a blind bad ass in star wars kicking the Empire’s butt…well we all know another, but they said he was not cannon moving on.” Chrrut Imwe which is the name of Donnie’s charter is an unknown charcater that I would like to glean into one day, he’s highly Nobel and wise on every scene I seen into the movie, and someone kids would say “I wanna be him one day” well my young padawans always pray on the force.

Oscar winner Forest Whitaker has done and always done a amazing impersonation on his character name (Saw Gerrera) the unknown warrior that fought in the Clone Wars, and survived the Order 66 epidemic what I like about his character is his voice…yes his voice besides the jokes he’s the big boss of an privet military that smuggles goods from the Empire, He’s past is highly unknown but we all know that he survived the Emperor’s raid which I would also like a comic entail to his back story “Oh that makes a sweet Christmas idea” moving on I have seen some good juicy fights and humor which leads me to everyone’s new favorite droid (K-2SO)  love this droid he is humor all over this movie very bad ass and intelligent, this is an imperial droid along the rebellion alliance well re-optimized into the rebellion alliance “I mean who doesn’t want a bad ass droid along side their faction? And yes thank you for R2-D2” I have to say that next to Episode 5 Empire strikes back; Rogue One can be on top of my list for ass kicking Star Wars films, but there are some parts that you may love or even have just to let you know mostly everything you will love “Is it me or is Disney getting darker…Ever since Lion King”

(Seeing Darth Vader makes you want to scream like our friend Chewy in the video below…)

https://youtu.be/xaYorRKKAUQ

But my fellow Jedi friends having Darth Vader in this film was huge, and I am hoping to see a standalone film of this twisted lord. Which I get 9 out of 10 that’s going to happen “I mean come on we got his comic what else do you need? A movie hell yes!” To me seeing this film it reminds you of (Star wars Battlefront) and alot goes on humor, excitement, depressed, etc. But it haves it’s roots with constructive scenes you may not like “Like I said I just wanted more Darth Vader and to me it seems so fast so yes, kinda like rushing the compared to the prior films.”

Not to make it a negative movie but this I have to say is my favriote well done (Spencer Wilding) and to point out another bad ass character along the movie is (Baze Malbus) “I call him the big gun guy!” and yes with judging how big his gun is just know to him it’s a pistol. Having Baze and Donnie Yen character (Chirrut) as a dynamic duo, reminds me as the bad ass Jay and Silent Bob, but in Star Wars. Moving on having not looking into how Baze and Chirrut met, they always had each other back through out the whole movie,. And not giving up their ride or die moments.

Star Wars Rouge One: 9.1/10

Luke Skywalker (Origins)

Luke Skywalker was born in Polics Massa BBY his birth was kept a secret because it was occurring during the Great Purge of the Jedi Emperor Palpatine through the use of his clone Army the majority of Jedi’s were killed or be hunted down as we’re all those with a high enough level to be force-sensitive. In order to protect luke from his father Darth Vader Luke and his sister was split up by and hidden by Obi-Wan Kenobi Leia with Senator bail Organa and Luke with his step-uncle and aunt for his father grew up despite the kindness and generosity of his foster father Luke and Owen often didn’t get on.

When a group of Jawa traders visited Luke’s moisture farm, Luke and his uncle Owen purchased two droids: R2-D2 and C-3PO. While cleaning and repairing the droids, Luke discovered a part of a holorecording in R2-D2 asking for aid from Obi-Wan Kenobi. In an attempt to view the rest of the message, Luke removed the restraining bolt from R2-D2 but to no avail, the holorecording cut off. While Luke was eating tea with his aunt and uncle, Artoo took advantage of the lack of restraining bolt and escaped the moisture farm, seeking Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The next morning, Luke and Threepio took Luke’s speeder and went looking for the Artoo. They found the astromech in a canyon in the Jundland Wastes but were ambushed by Tusken Raiders shortly afterwards. The Tuskens knocked out Luke and tore off Threepio’s arm while Artoo hid in an alcove of the canyon wall. They were rescued by Ben Kenobi who took Luke to his home for Luke to recover. Ben informed Luke of his real name – Obi-Wan – and that he was the man Artoo claimed to be searching for. Obi-Wan informed Luke that his father was a Jedi Knight in the Clone Wars and encouraged Luke to train in the ways of the Force under Obi-Wan. Luke turned down the offer, stating that he was needed by his uncle for their farm but did offer Obi-Wan a lift to Anchorage where Obi-Wan could get a transport to Mos Eisley.

On the way, they encountered the Jawa transport that had sold the droids to Luke and Owen. The transport had been destroyed by a group of Imperial stormtroopers. Luke realized that if the stormtroopers were seeking the droids and that if they had found the Jawas, they would soon find the moisture farm as well. Luke immediately travelled back to the farm only to find the farm sacked and his uncle and aunt dead. Grieving, he returned to Obi-Wan and agreed to travel with him to Alderaan and learn to become a Jedi.

Together, they travelled to the space port of Mos Eisley where they met Han Solo and Chewbacca. They hired the pair of them to take them to Alderaan in their ship: the Millennium Falcon. During the journey, Obi-Wan began Luke’s training, giving him his father’s lightsaber and a training droid. Upon arrival in the Alderaan system, they found the planet destroyed and were captured in the tractor beam of the Death Star. a space station the size of a small moon. They hid in some smuggling compartments on the ship then made their way to the control room where Obi-Wan found out the location of the tractor beam controls so he could disable it.

When Artoo discovered the location of Princess Leia, Luke, Han and Chewbacca went to the detention block where she was being held. They freed Leia only to find themselves pinned down by a squad of stormtroopers. Together they fled down a junk disposal tunnel and found themselves in a magnetically sealed room. After a close shave involving their near deaths when the walls of the room began to close in on them, the group made their way back to the Falcon only to find Obi-Wan in the midst of a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader. Obi-Wan fell to Vader’s blade but instead of dying in the normal sense, Obi-Wan just disappeared.

The rest of the group escaped in the Falcon and travelled to the Rebel base on Yavin IV but were followed by the Death Star due to a tracker placed on board the Millennium Falcon during Leia’s rescue. After a briefing on how the Rebels were to destroy the Death Star, Luke flew an X-Wing with proton torpedoes to be used against the giant space station alongside many other rebels. One of the rebels named Biggs Darklighter was an old friend of Luke’s from Tatooine.

Many rebels died during the assault on the Death Star, including Darklighter. Eventually though, through using the Force for guidance, Luke managed to shoot one of his proton torpedoes down an exhaust pipe and into the Death Star, destroying it shortly before it would have fired on Yavin IV.

Upon their return to the Rebel base, Luke and Han were celebrated as heroes and were each awarded with medals from Princess Leia.

Following an infiltration mission to discover potential bases for the Rebel Alliance, Luke was tasked with an assignment to travel to the planet Poln Major. He was ordered to follow the Millenium Falcon in a Z-95 Headhunter without alerting Han or Chewbacca of his presence. Han had been given the job of escorting the former governor of the Logarra District on Alderaan – a man named Vestin Axlon – to Poln Major where he would be negotiating a new base for the Rebellion in exchange for protection from the alien warlord Nuso Esva who had built up an army in uncharted space. Once he arrived on Poln Major, Luke was to act as a hidden aspect should things turn sour.

main-qimg-8ca7d5f25cc2f2a79a4db254cf5d44e5-c-1

Han, however, was not as easy to trick as Axlon had hoped. Upon landing, Han immediately walked to where Luke’s Z-95 Headhunter was docked to confront him. Realizing that there was little point in maintaining Luke’s presence as a secret, Axlon ordered Luke to accompany him for the first meeting with the Imperial governor of the Candoras system: Bidor Ferrouz.

The next day, Axlon received word that an Imperial agent (Mara Jade) would be targeting Ferrouz for his treasonous meetings with the Rebel Alliance. Luke was ordered to wait outside the palace, watching for the agent and engage her in combat if necessary. But by the time Luke was in position, he was too late. Mara Jade had already entered the palace under the guise of a criminal.

While Luke was watching outside, Mara Jade had infiltrated the palace. As she was about to take Ferrouz’s life, he revealed to her that he had only proposed to join the Alliance because Nuso Esva had captured his wife and daughter. Mara Jade was leaving to follow up some leads when the palace was attacked by a group of Nuso Esva’s men.

Outside, Luke found himself in the middle of a riot created by more of Nuso Esva’s men. Thinking that Ferrouz had been killed by Mara Jade – with her lightsaber – the ringleader grabbed Luke’s lightsaber and flailed it around in the air, shouting that Luke had killed Ferrouz. Luke was able to retrieve his weapon and escape the riot but was unable to contact his fellow rebels. His comlink had become damaged beyond use when he threw it at the man holding his lightsaber in a successful attempt to make him release it. However, Luke was found by Brightwater of the Hand of Judgement. Brightwater gave Luke his belt which contained emergency rations and other useful items before heading back to the rest of his team. The Hand of Judgement had been recruited by Mara Jade for one final mission before they were forced to retire due to lack of supplies.

Mara Jade, Ferrouz and Axlon (who was about to have his second meeting with Ferrouz when the palace was attacked) had met up with the Hand of Judgement in the cellar of a tapcaf. Mara Jade left to try and find Ferrouz’s family while everyone else held their positions. With Mara Jade gone, Axlon took the opportunity to betray Ferrouz and the Hand of Judgement, he severely injured Grave and Quiller then held the rest at blaster point. He revealed his plans to forge an alliance between the Rebels and Nuso Esva’s army by helping to kill Ferrouz and to blame it on Luke by killing Ferrouz with Luke’s lightsaber upon his arrival. However, while Axlon was distracted, Quiller was able to use Brightwater’s knife to stab and kill Axlon. LaRone contacted Luke to inform him of Axlon’s betrayal and what his intentions had been. Instead of coming to the tapcaf, LaRone asked Luke to spy on the group of Nuso Esva’s men who had been responsible for the riot.

When the group was about to move out, Luke killed the sentry guarding their speeder, removed the blasters from the speeder’s storage compartment and hid himself in their under a blanket behind the dead sentry’s body. Upon the discovery of the body in their storage compartment, Nuso Esva’s men assumed that the Hand of Judgement had killed the sentry and made off with their blasters. With Luke stowing away in the storage compartment, they travelled to the cave in which Ferrouz’s family was hidden. Here, Luke hid in a dark corner, biding his time until the opportunity to make his way into the room which contained Ferrouz’s family revealed itself.

When Mara Jade deliberately set off a booby trap elsewhere in the cave causing a large explosion, Luke took his opportunity and ran for the door to the room containing Ferrouz’s family. Unfortunately, however, he was pinned down by Nuso Esva’s forces and would have been slain had it not been for the aid of Mara Jade. Mara Jade rescued Ferrouz’s family while Luke left. The Rebel forces had realized their chances of establishing a new base on Poln Minor were slim. They withdrew from the planet and headed for Hoth, accidentally leaving clues as to there new whereabouts for Vader to follow.

Three years after the Death Star had been destroyed, the Empire destroyed the Rebel Base on Hoth VI. Though the spiritual guidance of Obi-Wan, Luke traveled to Dagobah, in whose swamps Yoda now made his home, to become Yoda’s apprentice and continue his training in use of the Force. Luke was however troubled by visions of Han and Leia tortured by the Empire and decided cease his training to rescue his comrades. By the time Luke reached Cloud City he was too late to save Han or Leia–but he and Vader engaged in a lightsaber battle. Vader’s power was much more vast than Luke’s, but he did not kill Luke because he wanted Luke to turn to the Dark Side and become an ally of the Empire.

They fought, and Vader eventually slashed off Luke’s hand at the wrist and his father’s lightsaber along with it. Vader tells Luke his true parentage but Luke chose death over life as Vader’s son, and he let go and fell. He barely survived and continued the fight against Vader and the Empire.

More than six months passed. Over that time, Luke formed a plan to free Han. The group went to Luke’s former home planet of Tatooine, location of Jabba the Hutt’s palace, where Han was frozen. (Lando Calrissian participated in order to win a wager against Leia Organa, who had bet that he could not redeem himself by assisting them.) They freed him and Leia succeeded in killing Jabba himself. The Alliance had learned that the Empire was building a second, more powerful Death Star, knowledge that the Emperor had secretly allowed it to obtain. Luke and his friends arrive at Endor and align with the Ewok, until Luke decides to confront his father and the Emperor. When Leia tries to persuade him not to do it, Luke reveals their relation as siblings and that it was his destiny to confront the Dark Lords of the Sith.

When Luke traveled to the base where Vader and the Emperor were, he revealed his acceptance of the fact that Vader had once been Anakin Skywalker, his father, and tried to draw Vader back where Kenobi had failed. But aboard the unfinished second Death Star, he would eventually duel his father in another lightsaber duel. Once Vader learns about Leia and threatens her life, Luke succumbs to the Dark Side. After Luke defeats Vader, the Emperor tempts to take his father’s place but Luke refuses. Enraged, the Emperor fired Force lightning at him, and was about to kill him as Vader watched. Vader becomes Anakin Skywalker once again and throw’s the Emperor down the reactor shaft. Luke tries to save his father, but he request that his helmet be removed so he can see his son one last time.

Luke escapes the Death Star just time as it explodes are lands on Endor, where he cremates his father’s armor on a funeral pyre. Luke later joins the Rebels as they celebrate the end of the Empire and sees the spirits of Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Anakin watch over them.

Obi-Wan Kenobi (Origins)

Image result

Obi-Wan Kenobi started out as a simple farm boy, before his parents discovered that he seemed to have “unnatural powers”. So they brought him to a Jedi Knight. The Knight realized that Obi-Wan had a strong connection to the Force, and he had a high amount of midi-chlorine’s. Obi-Wan went to the Jedi Temple-where he was a star. He displayed amazing skill and potential, and he graduated at the very top of his class. When the Jedi Knights came, looking for apprentices, Obi-Wan was snapped up by the most prolific one: Master Qui-Gon Jinn. Qui-Gon taught his apprentice well. He nourished and enhanced Obi-Wan’s connection to the Force, and soon a strong bond developed between the two. They became more than apprentice and master-they became friends.

Things got hectic, though, when Qui-Gon was assigned to see what was happening in the Trade Federation ship with the Viceroy and his assistant. They threatened the Queen, and the two had to protect her. Meanwhile, the evil Darth Sidious was after the two, and he sent his apprentice Darth Maul to capture and kill the Knights. They rescued Queen Padme Amidala on Naboo, but they were running out of fuel. So they stopped in Tatooine a rocky, desert planet where Hutts, Pod Racing, and slaves were the thing. While there, they met a young boy who would change the entire galaxy-Anakin Skywalker.

Anakin was a young slave boy, whose only future seemed to be working his life away for Watto-a Toydarian junk dealer that sold ship parts. But when Qui-Gon saw him, he immediately recognized that Anakin had the strongest potential for the Force of anyone. He could be The Chosen One. The One who would finally destroy the Sith. Anakin won his freedom in a Pod Race, but he had to leave his mother as he went with the Knight, Obi-Wan, and the princess. The spying Darth Maul, a Sith who had potential equal to Obi-Wan’s, caught up to them-but they barely escaped. Obi-Wan then traveled to Corusant with Qui-Gon and the boy where the Jedi Council interviewed Anakin. After Qui-Gon decided to train the boy, they decided to go back to Naboo to take back the city of Theed from the Trade Federation. They fought their way into the Theed Palace until they were intercepted by the evil Darth Maul.

Darth Maul was one of the most powerful apprentices the Sith had seen in a long time thanks primarily due to the large amount of time his master-Darth Sidious- had invested in him. He was only an apprentice at this stage and had accessed a fraction of his available power. If things had gone differently, he might have become a Sith Lord nearly equal to Lord Sidious. To make things worse, he wielded a double-bladed lightsaber. The two Jedi engaged the Sith in battle around the Palace, and both sides seemed to be holding their own. Unfortunately the security fields separated Obi-Wan from the other two. When they fought alone, Maul was too good-he distracted Qui-Gon Jinn and stabbed him through the abdomen.

Obi-Wan was devastated-and Darth Maul fought him alone. Maul beat on him and knocked him to the edge of a pit. As Obi-Wan clung for dear life at the edge- the Sith apprentice kicked Ob-Wan’s lightsaber into the pit. Obi-Wan was seemingly defenseless but using the force leaped over Maul and commanded his former master’s lightsaber to fly to his hand. By the time Darth Maul realized what was going on, it was too late. Obi-Wan had sliced the Sith in two and watched as both sides plummeted into the abyss. Qui-Gon was barely alive, but his last words were for Obi-Wan to become Anakin’s master. “Train the boy. Train him” Obi-Wan listened as Qui-Gon died.

Obi-Wan went back to Anakin and explained what happened. At first Yoda was skeptical- granting him the rank of Jedi Knight but not as the boy’s master. Yoda reluctantly concedes upon learning that Obi-Wan gave Qui-Gon his word to train Anakin. Obi-Wan later solemnly attends the funeral pyre of his master and friend; feeling more comfortable knowing that he fulfilled Qui-Gon’s dying wish.

Throughout his time as a Jedi Obi Wan has undergone complete changes in his character, personality and traits, primarily due to his increasing maturity, but also in part due to the grief and sorrow surrounding him.

In his first appearance in the Phantom Menace Obi Wan is still a Padawan to the great Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn. He is quite similar to Anakin Skywalker when he was a padawan, as they both share traits such as their arrogance, confidence, audacity, tenacity, jealousy and passion. Obi Wan displays his first outward sign of jealousy towards Anakin as he feels as though his master is giving the boy more attention than to himself.

Legendary Jedi Knight

Following the death of his master at the end of the first episode, Obi Wan is forced to mature and deal with the grief and anguish thrust upon him, as he loses the only fatherly figure in his life. This is the first and the biggest of the changes that Obi Wan undergoes. His dead master has left him with the last request to train the boy whom he was envious of and against the council’s wishes. This turns him into a far more mature and responsible character as he now has to set an example to his padawan and lead by example, and display all the virtues of a good master in order to do Qui-Gon Jinn proud. Through his development as a master to Anakin he begins to become more embroiled with politics and becomes somewhat of a diplomat, and earning the respect and admiration of many Senators and Rulers.

After the fall of his only padawan (Anakin) to the Dark Side Obi Wan experiences his another serious change. He is shaken to the core by the actions of his padawan and their repercussions, and feels as though the execution of Order 66 and the death of the Jedi and the rise of the sith is all his fault. He like Yoda in shame places a self-imposed exile on himself on Tatooine, which will serve a dual purpose of also teaching of his padawan’s son.

His solitude and age leads to the waning of his power and he decides to teach Luke and confront Darth Vader before he is too weak. During his short time training Luke he imparts all of the Jedi rules, codes morals and aims and teaches him proper values and the true Jedi ways. It is thanks to the teachings of Obi Wan and Yoda that Luke becomes the Jedi he was born to be and overthrows the Sith an restores the Jedi. In Luke is his greatest success.

 

Master and Apprentice

Anakin got older, and a bond developed between them. They were almost like brothers in fact. It was similar to the bond that had once grown between Obi-Wan and his Master: Qui-Gon Jinn. They went on missions together, and Anakin proved to be invaluable in saving Obi-Wan’s life. However, Anakin also grew reckless and didn’t think before he acted so Obi-Wan often had to keep him in check. Meanwhile, Obi-Wan was growing stronger in his connection to the Force and in his skill as a fighter and lightsaber wielder. He was nearing his prime- so to speak, but still visited Yoda and other high, old Masters for advice. He became a fully-fledged Jedi Knight and a Jedi Master in the Council. However, he soon realized that the Separatists were about to launch a new plot to take down the good system that ruled the universe-so he and Anakin went back into action.

Count Dooku (also known as Darth Tyrannus) was another powerful Sith unbeknownst to the Jedi. He had been the student of Yoda who turned away from the Jedi Order and joined the rising force known as the Separatists, and he joined the Separatist movement as the leader. Dooku’s new master was none other then the Dark Lord Sidious himself, who had recovered quickly from the loss of Darth Maul- now sporting a new apprentice to do his bidding. Obi-Wan and Anakin kept their tight bond, but Anakin had problems with the Dark Side-which you will read about later.

Obi-Wan saw that new soldiers were being “recruited” for the Republic- clones of the renowned Mandalorian bounty hunter: Jango Fett from the planet Kamino. This bounty hunter, Obi wan guessed, was one who planned the assassination on the former queen of Naboo; Senator Amidala. Fett and Obi-Wan battled soon after meeting each other on Kamino. They fought a ferocious battle in which Obi-Wan was also fired upon by Jango’s son Boba. Fett’s skill and weapons were not enough to kill the Jedi and he attempted to escape, however, Obi-Wan threw a tracking device onto the hull of Jango’s ship-the Slave I.

After realizing the Jedi was still on his tail. Jango and Obi wan engaged in an intense space battle through an asteroid field. Jango had shown that he was winning very early in the fight. Obi-Wan was under constant fire and Jango had many tricks up his sleeve such as the explosive charges that he ejected from his ship. Jango soon decided to end the fight an fired two homing missiles at Obi-Wan’s ship. Luckily, Obi-Wan ejected projectiles from his ship just in time to intercept them; making it look like he had been hit and deceiving the bounty hunter. This is one of the finest displays of Obi-Wan’s flying abilities and is a real testament to his character as he achieved this feat despite constantly bemoaning about how he “hates flying”.

Obi-Wan followed the Slave I to Geonosis were many Separatist ships had gathered. He soon spotted Count Dooku and several Separatist leaders. He quickly sent the Council a report on the situation but was taken hostage by the Separatists. Count Dooku met him in his holding chamber and asked hm why he was there. Obi told him most of his story cautiously while Count Dooku told him that a “Sith Lord named Darth Sidious” was in control of the Republic. This statement would prove to have an unexpected and terrible truth to it later on.

Unfortunately Obi-Wan was brought to an arena where he was put in a horrific position; tied to a pole where he was met by his apprentice, Anakin, and Padme who had disobeyed orders to try and and help him. They were trapped as a Nexu a Reek and an acklay came out to eat them in the gladiator style arena. With the skill of the two Jedi and surprisingly battle ready Padame, they were able to free themselves and fight off the arena monsters. Numerous soldiers, clones, Jedi Knights, and droids busted in-and a full-scale war let loose. Mace Windu was among the Jedi there, and Count Dooku was at the battle. Many Jedi died that day, but they won. Obi-Wan and Anakin escaped back into a temple-where they found Count Dooku waiting for them. It was during this confrontation where Jango Fett who skirmished with Obi-Wan earlier ultimately met his demise.

Following this, Obi-Wan and Anakin caught sight of Dooku fleeing on a speeder. In the ensuing pursuit Padme and a few clones fell off. Anakin demanded the ship turn around, however Obi-Wan reasoned with his student and they continued. Upon reaching the hangar, Obi-Wan warned Anakin not to be too headstrong. Anakin ignored this and was nearly killed with a blast of Force Lightning from Count Dooku. Obi-Wan had met his match with Dooku who had just overpowered Obi-Wan and Anakin when Grand Master Yoda appeared to save the Jedi.

Throughout this period of time, though, Obi-Wan’s apprentice Anakin was getting closer to the Dark Side. He cared deeply about those he loved-and he feared losing them so much that it put him on the path to the Dark Side. The most obvious example being Padme whom he married in secret and who was the cause of much fear and anxiety for Anakin which Obi-Wan unfortunately didn’t realise fast enough.. While Obi-Wan was at the cloning factory and fighting the bounty hunter Jango Fett, Anakin had gone on an independent mission to see Tatooine for he wanted to see his mother. When he arrived at his home he was informed his mother had been kidnapped. Sand People had savagely beaten her-she was near death. She died in her son’s arms. Anakin flipped, so to speak. In a blind rage, he murdered the entire Sand People: tribe-men, women, and children. Obi-Wan felt this disturbance in the Force with Anakin, and he tried to control it, however did not entirely succeed.

Near the end of the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan and Anakin went on a mission to find General Grievous- the new leader of the Separatist movement and Emperor’s apprentice. He had taken Chancellor Palpatine (a high-ranking politician who was secretly the Emperor) hostage. While there, they found their old nemesis-Count Dooku. They fought Dooku, and he knocked out Obi-Wan. Anakin fought him savagely, and got him in a death pose. At Palpatine’s urging; he killed his nemesis. Anakin fostered a friendship with Palpatine, while talking to the Jedi Council. They allowed him a place on the Jedi Council-but did not grant him the rank of Master. Anakin was livid, and nothing Obi-Wan did could cool him down. Eventually, Anakin got on the path to the Dark Side, as the Chancellor told him that Sith could bring people back to life. Anakin then found out that Palpatine was a Sith Lord, Darth Sidious. He alerted Mace Windu, and the Jedi Master defeated Palpatine after a grueling battle. But at the last second, Anakin’s allegiance to Emperor and ties to the Dark Side won. He severed Mace Windu’s sword arm and with it, his ties to the Jedi Order. Giving himself to the Dark Side of the Force, he became Darth Vader.

During this time Obi-Wan had been dispatched to Utapau to find and kill General Grievous, and disrupt the Separitist movement. After a tough battle, Obi-Wan in a similar situation to his fight against Darth Maul, used the force to summon Grievous’ pistol and shot him dead with it. This is considered one of his greatest triumphs. He was here when Order 66 came in, and narrowly escaped with his life.

A student's fall

Obi-Wan simply noticed that Anakin was growing darker. But he saw tapes of Darth Vader helping Palpatine and being on the Dark Side-killing younglings in the Jedi Temple. Vader traveled to Mustafar-and Obi-Wan was sent there. Vader attacked Obi-Wan-but in a huge battle, but Obi-Wan defeated him and severed his left arm and legs. Had he not severely wounded his former padawan like he did, the galaxy would have had to face a much more powerful Vader in the future. Vader nearly burned to death there, but Obi-Wan let him live however not before taking his lightsaber. He was found by Palpatine, who encased him in a black obsidian-based suit. Obi-Wan went back with Padme, who was now Anakin’s pregnant wife. She had two babies; Luke and Leia. She then died in childbirth, so Obi-Wan delivered Luke to Anakin’s stepbrother Owen Lars and his wife, who were farmers in the Tatooine desert.

There Obi-Wan stayed-growing stronger in the Force while growing old. He lived alone, as Ben Kenobi on Tatooine- an old man. This lasted for over twenty years…until our story of Obi-Wan picks up again.

Obi-Wan lived in solitude as Ben Kenobi in Tatooine for so long. But suddenly, he felt a great change in the Force-like something was about to happen, and he heard the Sand People making a disturbance outside. When he went out, he found a young teen, Luke Skywalker, being attacked by Sand People. He drove them off, and went with the boy back to his house. However, when he got there, storm troopers had destroyed Luke’s home and killed his uncle and aunt, who had raised him. Luke was devastated-but he decided to go with Ben to avenge his foster parents and father and fulfill his role as a Jedi. They went into a bar, and Ben demonstrated his power as a Jedi-he cut off the hand of an unruly patron. There they met Han Solo a renegade pilot who needed money and had many people after him. Ben explained to Luke that he could be a Jedi like him-and that he needed to be the hero to bring down the Empire. The evil Empire ruled the galaxy, and it’s leader Darth Vader was the evil tyrant who led it. And Ben told Luke, that Vader killed his father.

The four left, and they found the Death Star in space-a huge space station the size of a small planet. It could obliterate planets-and it killed Leia’s home planet, Alderaan. The Death Star pulled the Millennium Falcon in using a tractor beam , and they escaped from the storm troopers. They split up. Ben went alone to disable the tractor beams and shields-while the other three went to find away to destroy the Death Star or escape and rescue Leia. While they were escaping, Ben had shut down the shields, where he ran into none other than Anakin Skywalker, his old apprentice who later became Darth Vader, the apprentice of the Emperor. They fought evenly, and they had both grown in skill since their ferocious fight on Mustafar. As they fought, Luke suddenly found them fighting. Obi-Wan Kenobi wanted Luke to hate evil and push him away from the Dark Side. So he set down his lightsaber and became one with the force momentarily before Darth attacked him.

Obi-Wan Kenobi was dead. He had sacrificed his life to save Luke from evil, and Luke was devastated. Vader, confident, strode off, and Luke escaped-while filled with anger. Kenobi was successful-Luke was now repelled by the Dark Side and the Empire. And Darth Vader, who he would later learn was his father.

But Obi-Wan was a powerful Jedi, and he possessed the most powerful ability-his spirit could live on when his body was dead. He became what is known as a Force ghost. And so the story of Obi-Wan Kenobi did not end with his death-it merely marked a new chapter in his life.

After his death and rebirth, Obi-Wan did not appear nearly so much as he had in life. The first time he showed himself beyond the grave was when Luke was flying his ship through the tunnel of the Death Star. Luke needed to shoot two bombs directly into two holes in the Death Star. The holes would lead down to the core of the Death Star, and the bombs would explode it, destroying the entire Death Star. Luke had his aiming mechanism on, but he missed twice. He then heard Ben Kenobi’s distinct voice in his ear, telling him “Use the Force, Luke.” He put down the aiming mechanism and used the Force-and the bombs went in. He didn’t hear or see Kenobi’s spirit again until later.

After that, Luke and the other Rebels were holed up in a base on the ice planet Hoth. He was stranded on the ice, having fended off a wampa and Kenobi appeared to him as a ghost, and told him how to survive, and helped him use the Force to fight off a creature that was attacking him. He then told Luke to go to the swamp planet Dagobah, where a great Jedi Master lived. He told him that the Master’s name was Yoda, and he was the Grand Master of the jedi. Luke went to Dagobah and found Yoda-and Yoda’s training was instrumental in Luke eventually bringing down the Empire.

After that, Kenobi would appear to Luke in times of need, or when he needed help. He tried to discourage Luke from traveling to Cloud City to fight Vader, to bring Han and Leia back. Kenobi appears on Dagobah to explain to a heartbroken Luke why he did not tell him the truth about his father, and to confess that Leia was his sister. Kenobi admits that his own pride had been partly to blame for Anakin Skywalker’s fall from grace: “I thought I could instruct him just as well as Yoda. I was wrong.” He then tries to explain to Luke that killing Vader is the only way to destroy the Empire and save the galaxy- even if it meant killing his own father. This, however, did not come to pass. Instead of Luke killing his father-Darth Vader decided to become Anakin once more and sacrifice himself, fulfilling his destiny. Obi-Wan had not failed Anakin after all.

Obi-Wan Kenobi was a well respected and eloquent diplomat, a wise teacher, a good swordsman, an influential general, and a powerful Jedi.

 

The Sith (Explained)

The Sith, collectively known as the Sith Order, were an order of Force users who utilized the dark side of the Force in an effort to gain power over the galaxy. The Sith were the ancient enemies of the Jedi Order and fought numerous wars with them for thousands of years.

Formed thousands of years prior to the Clone Wars, the Sith were the ancient enemies of the Jedi Order. Established by a rogue Jedi, the Sith sought further knowledge and power through learning the dark side of the Force. Eventually, this Jedi was able to amass a sizable following, all of whom adhered to this new philosophy that embraced the dark side. This schism in the Jedi Order led to an event known as the Hundred-Year Darkness, in which the Jedi and the newly-founded Sith Order, once brothers and sisters in the Force, fought against one another for power. The civil war ended in the defeat of the Sith, who fled from known space. Unbeknownst to the Jedi however, the Sith settled on Moraband, a world of red sands, where they rebuilt in secret to wait for another chance to strike.

As the Sith Order grew, they constructed massive temples and tombs on Moraband in a location known as the Valley of the Dark Lords. The Sith built empires on the backs of their slaves and fought wars against the Jedi for control of the galaxy. During these wars, they built massive superweapons powered by giant kyber crystals. During one such conflict, the Jedi and Sith fought on the planet of Takodana. The pirate Maz Kanata later built her castle on top of the legendary battlefield.

Who is Arcann? (Star Wars)


Arcann and his twin brother Thexan were born as princes to Valkorion, and trained from a very early age in combat. Both of them were sensitive to the force, and were able to use it very effectively in combat. As they grew, both built and used lightsabers as their primary weapons, and upon reaching adulthood, were sent by their father to battle and dominate worlds.

Arcann soon grew angry of his father’s lack of affection or interest in him and his brother as anything more than tools. Regardless, he and Thexan led the Eternal Empire’s armed forces to war against the Galactic Republic and Sith Empire, driving them back almost to the brink of extinction. Arcann was wounded severely in the face and lost his left arm while waging a battle on a Sith planet, and soon after received a new jaw casing that covered the left side of his face, as well as a cybernetic left arm.

Arcann and Thexan eventually returned to Valkorion, presenting lightsabers of both Jedi and Sith as trophies of their successes in battle. When Valkorion turned away without so much as a glance at the weapons, the light of the dark side ignited in Arcann’s eyes as he became furious at his father’s lack of caring. Irate, he ignited his lightsaber and leaped at his father, intending to cut him down. Thexan, using the Force, pulled Arcann back in an attempt to prevent his father’s death. Arcann, furious, turned his fury on his brother and dueled with him briefly. Arcann lashed out and struck his brother across the torso. Thexan glanced at his brother with a look of resignation, and the light of the dark side faded from Arcann’s eyes as he realized what he had done. He cradled his brother in his arms as Thexan died of his wound. Looking up, Arcann saw his father standing over him, reaching his arm out and imploring him to come with Valkorion.

Darth Vader/ Anakin Skywalker (Origins)

Anakin Skywalker is considered “the Chosen One” of the force; whom is supposed to destroy the Sith. Anakin Skywalker was born without a father and lived most of his life on Tatooine with his mother, Shmi. When Qui-Gon Jinn came to the planet looking for parts for their ship back to the Jedi Council, Anakin won them the parts and also his freedom, but only with one flaw in the plan — his mother had to stay on Tatooine as a slave. Years later, Anakin became the apprentice of Obi-Wan Kenobi and married the ex-queen of Naboo, Padme Amidala.

Near the end of the Clone Wars, Anakin became very obsessed at saving his family. Learning that his wife and unborn child were going to die though a vision, Anakin was determined to find the power save his loved ones. At this moment, Sith Lord Darth Sidious made Anakin join the newfound Empire as his new Sith Apprentice, Darth Vader. Anakin killed most of the last remaining Jedi in the galaxy, except for Yoda and Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan tried to kill Anakin, but only left him near the lava planet of Musafar badly injured. Anakin survived, through the mechanations of Emperor. More machine than man, Anakin forever became Darth Vader and served his master as the Empire’s Mailed Fist.

Along with the entire Star Wars universe, Darth Vader (or Anakin) was created by George Lucas. However, at the time Darth Vader was the main portrayal of the character, than Anakin Skywalker (but it has been said that George worked on Anakin’s model before they started Vader). Vader’s mask was drawn by Ralph McQuarrie who drew the concept for the Darth Vader space suit. After many alterations to Vader’s mask, Ralph finally got a design that George liked, and soon Brian Muir started to design the rest of Vader from the head down. With the success of Star Wars IV: A New Hope, George Lucas began to look for a writer to help him with the fifth, technically second, movie. Writer Leigh Brackett helped George create the second installment of Star Wars, and everything was perfect, except that the fact that Vader was not going to reveal that he was the father of Luke. Before the movie script was finished, Leigh Brackett died of cancer, so it was left for George to write the script by himself. In the end, Darth did tell Luke that he was his father. George began looking at a backstory for Anakin and created the entire story with Anakin having been the student of Obi Wan Kenobi, and the late Qui-Gon. The story was clear that Anakin would loose himself to the dark side through a series of events, and eventually become Darth Vader after being badly wounded during the final battle against Obi Wan. Which ultimately completed the “Saga” of Star Wars, episodes 1-6.

Darth Vader found a secret apprentice during the reign of the Empire. On a mission from Palpatine on suspicions of a Rouge Jedi on the planet Kashyyyk, Vader discovered this apprentice. His father Kento Marek, the Rouge Jedi, had escaped Order 66 and had traveled through many planets on his way to Kashyyyk were the Rouge had eventually stayed. After confronting Kento and killing him, Vader took the boy from the prying eyes of Palpatine. After years of training, Vader saw it fit to let his apprentice to hunt down the last of the Jedi. When Starkiller completed his tasks, Vader was ready to initiate his plan to destroy the Emperor. Unfortunately, the Emperor found out and had tailed Starkiller’s plane until reaching Vader’s private spacecraft. When the Emperor arrived, Vader betrayed and killed his Starkiller to show his loyalty to his master. He left his Apprentice alive though and when the Emperor left, Vader retrieved Starkiller from the depths of space.

He then revived his apprentice and explained his plan for the next attempt which was to start a rebellion. Then he sent his apprentice off. He did not realize though that his Apprentice had feelings for the Pilot Juno Eclipse who had been labeled a traitor to the Empire. Starkiller then broke Juno out of the restraints she was hidden in and started on his mission. Eventually, Starkiller would discover that Vader never planned to overthrow Palpatine at all (or at least with him). It was all part

of the Emperor’s plan to expose the Empire’s enemies. Vader would later capture the Rebel Alliance and defeat his apprentice once more, but that would prove to be his undoing. Starkiller survived and confronted Vader and the Emperor in the Death Star, sacrificing his life to allow the Rebels to fight another day. Because of Starkiller’s actions, the Rebel Alliance was formed and ready to engage the Empire in a vicious Galactic Civil War.

For the next few years, Vader would be tasked by the Emperor to quell the attacks from the Rebel Alliance, with little effort.

The ruthless cyborg pursued Princess Leia and the Rebels for the stolen Death Star plans. The Empire pursued the Rebels straight back to Vader’s homeworld, which the princess was able to transfer plans to an astromech droid and send it off to the planet. Vader captured the princess and later brought her to the Death Star, where he and Grand Moff Tarkin interrogated her on the location of the hidden Rebel base. Vader tortured his daughter and forced to see her home planet of Alderaan destroyed. Vader also played a part in the execution of Owen and Beru Lars. As Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Obi-Wan, and Chewbacca were captured by the Death Star tractor beam, Vader sensed his former master’s presence. He eventually confronted his master in one final duel. Despite Obi-Wan’s warning, Vader struck him down but not before Obi-Wan became a spirit of the Force. Vader allowed Luke and his comrades to escape so he could finally locate the hidden Rebel base. Once the plan worked, the Imperials prepared for battle and confronted the incoming Rebel fleet. During the Battle of Yavin, Vader decided to personally destroy the Rebel starfighters himself. The Sith Lord nearly destroyed the entire Rebel fleet and was close to destroying Luke Skywalker, but interference from the Millennium Falcon would cause one of his support fighters to swerve into Vader’s fighter, sending him spiraling away into space.

Vader would return to the Empire and continue his efforts to hunt down the Rebel Alliance and the mysterious Luke Skywalker, who started to plague his mind with so many questions. He would never come into account that Luke and Leia were his children until much later.

Three years after the Death Star had been destroyed, the Empire destroyed the Rebel Base on Hoth VI. The Empire had gained strength, so as Luke traveled to Dagobah, in whose swamps Yoda now made his home, to become Yoda’s apprentice and continue his training in use of the Force, Han Solo and Leia Organa traveled to Cloud City, in the Bespin system, to meet Han’s old friend Lando Calrissian. However, Vader had tracked the heroes to Cloud City with the help of the Mandalorian bounty hunter Boba Fett and forced up a deal that meant that the Baron Administrator betray them, and the Dark Lord captured them. Vader, wanting to capture Skywalker, decided to test the carbonite freezing on Han Solo, who proved to have a price on his head thanks to Jabba the Hutt, and Fett took him to Jabba.

Luke reached Cloud City to save Han or Leia — but he would eventually engage Vader in a lightsaber battle. Vader’s power was much more vast than Luke’s, but he did not kill Luke because he wanted Luke to turn to the Dark Side and become an ally of the Empire. They fought, and Vader eventually slashed off Luke’s hand at the wrist, over a balcony, causing Luke to lose the lightsaber that Anakin had meant for him long ago. Vader eventually revealed to Luke his true parentage, but Luke chose death over life as Vader’s son, and he let go and fell. He barely survived and escaped Vader and the Empire, much to the Dark Lord’s dismay.

More than six months passed. The Emperor formulated a trap to destroy the Rebel Alliance and convert Luke into the Dark Side of the Force. When Luke traveled to the moon of Endor where Vader and the Emperor were, he revealed his acceptance of the fact that Vader had once been Anakin Skywalker, his father, and tried to draw his father back where Kenobi had failed. But aboard the unfinished second Death Star, the Emperor proved to be a dark influence to Luke even when the father and son engaged in their final lightsaber duel. Vader gains the upper hand until Luke taps into the Dark Side to subdue his father in combat, slicing of his arm. When Luke refused to turn, the Emperor fired Force lightning at him, and was about to kill him as Vader watched. As Luke was being electrocuted, he moaned, “Father, please help me!”

All the while, Anakin Skywalker had been fighting that which made him Darth Vader. Successfully overcoming what had made him Vader, Anakin seized the Emperor and threw him into the Death Star’s power core. Unfortunately, the lightning short-circuited Anakin’s cybernetics. He then died after killing the Emperor and saving his son, who unmasked him to find that his father had still been essentially human all the time.

No matter how evil Darth Vader had been, Anakin Skywalker died a hero. His ghost was seen at the Endor celebration.

 

Sensing that his new apprentice is in danger, Palpatine travels to Mustafar and finds Vader still alive. After returning to Coruscant, he rebuilds Vader’s ruined body with the black armored suit from the original trilogy. Palpatine then tells Vader that Padmé was killed in the heat of Vader’s anger, breaking what remains of his apprentice’s spirit. Vader is last seen watching the original Death Star’s construction, with Palpatine and Willfins Tarkan at his side.

 

 

Darth Vader makes his first appearance in the first installment of the original star wars trilogy, Star Wars. He is a ruthless cyborg serving the Galactic Empire who is tasked along with Imperial commander Grand Muff Tarken to recover the secret technical plans of the Death Star, which were stolen by the Rebellion Alliance. Princess Leia Organa has secretly hidden the plans inside the Astromech droid R2-D2  and has sent it to find Jedi Master Obi Wan Kanobi on the nearby planet of Tatoonie. Vader tortures Leia, but she resists revealing anything. During Leia’s rescue, Vader fights and kills Obi-Wan in a lightsaber duel and later attempts to kill Luke when the Death Star is about to fire on the Rebel base in Yavin 4. However, Han Solo sends Vader spiraling off course, allowing Luke to destroy the Death Star.

In the 1980 sequel The Empire Strikes Back, Vader leads the Imperial starfleet’s invasion of the Rebel base on Hoth, whereafter the Rebels escape. He later confers with the Emperor, who tells him that Luke has become a threat to the Empire and must not become a Jedi. Vader persuades the Emperor that Luke can be turned to the dark side of the force. Vader negotiates with Cloud City administrator Lando Calrssian to capture Han, Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 on Cloud city, and lure Luke into a trap. He tortures Han, freezes him in carbonite and delivers him to bounty hunter Bobba Fett, but Calrissian helps Leia, Chewbacca and the droids flee. A lightsaber duel ensues in which Vader cuts off Luke’s right hand, disarming him. Vader reveals that he is Luke’s father, and implores him to come to the dark side so they can to rule the galaxy together. After Luke escapes with his allies, Vader telepathiclly tells Luke that it is his destiny to join the dark side.

In the 1983 sequel Return of the Jedi, Vader travels to the second Death Star and orders its commander, Moff Jerjerrod, to advance its construction. He meets with the Emperor, who assures him that they will together make Luke come to the dark side. Luke attempts to implore Vader to leave the dark side, but is unsuccessful. Vader brings Luke onto the Death Star, where the Emperor tempts Luke to the dark side. This leads to another lightsaber duel between Vader and Luke, in which Vader discovers that Leia is Luke’s twin sister and threatens to turn her to the dark side if Luke will not submit. Luke, enraged, subdues Vader and cuts off his father’s robotic right hand. The Emperor tells Luke to kill Vader and take his place, but Luke refuses, declaring himself a Jedi as his father had been; the Emperor tortures Luke with force lighting. Moved by his son’s pleas for help, Vader kills the Emperor into the Death Star’s reactor shaft, but is mortally wounded in the process. He then asks Luke to remove his mask, and after telling his son that there was good left in him after all, he dies peacefully, having redeemed himself. Luke escapes the Death Star with his father’s remains, which he later ceremonially burns in a pyre. As the Rebels celebrate the destruction of the Death Star and the fall of the Empire, Luke sees his father’s spirit, standing alongside those of Obi-Wan and Yoda.
