Well, guys sorry for the hiatus, but at least I mentioned about it earlier. So today, I was just sitting by and relaxing as I had just come back from a hectic trip all the way from Delhi. A lot of ideas were just flowing through my head and I decided to do something about Star Wars, because I have never actually shared my opinions of the franchise as a whole to anyone else, not because I was ashamed or anything but I never thought I needed to. So, I decided to write about Star Wars in some shape or form and when I thought about what I wanted to talk about, it hit me instantly. I think it goes without saying that Star Wars will go down in history as the most popular franchise ever, I mean good god. It was everywhere, is everywhere and will be everywhere.
I was born in India in 1997, so naturally I was introduced to Star Wars incredibly late in life, I saw the first Star Wars feature when I was in kindergarten, it was the second film in the prequel trilogy, that I barely remember and still don’t, it wasn’t until 7th grade that I saw the 1977 feature and then saw the rest of the original trilogy and prequel trilogy afterwards, as an avid film fan, I enjoyed the original trilogy, particularly the second and the third films (Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi), as such I really liked all three films and the prequel trilogy was not good, but they were not without their fair share of good moments particularly in Revenge of the Sith. But in all honesty, I never found myself attached to the films as many others were, it may be due to the fact that I never got the chance to experience the visuals back in 1977, because I had just seen films like Avatar before viewing this, or it could be that the acting was just not that good, or the script not very well written, I don’t know, but I never found the films to be as good as people made it out to be. So I always found myself as a liker not a lover.
But it wasn’t until I saw Clone Wars (the micro series, not the CG show) and Rebels that made me change my mind about it. I just found Star Wars to be my cup of tea, yes I am still not qualified to be considered a diehard fan, but still I loved these two shows so much, that I found myself indulging in the Star Wars mythos more than ever. So, here are five reasons why I believe Star Wars worked better for me on television.
#5 – Better developed and more interesting characters
#4 – With a T.V show, the world of Star Wars is better explored
#3 – Villains are better used
#2 – Much Better Acting
#1 – Great stories
With all that said, by no means do I say that Star Wars is not suited for the big screen, it is just that time has separated me from enjoying those films as much as I wanted to. With the recent Star Wars film coming soon to cinemas, I have never been more excited to see anything from Star Wars in my entire life and thanks to good shows; I am able to see just how good star wars can be. So, in the end in some shape or form, I guess I can say for sure there will be something in Star Wars that you will find something to your liking, it could be the movies, or the expanded universe books, or the TV shows, or all of them, so just keep your eyes and ears open.
So, that was fun, and a lot shorter than my last article, thanks for sticking around and for the 10+ followers, it has been a blast, I will remain busy as I have a lot of stuff to do and pack since I am leaving to college very soon, but don’t worry, this will still be a thing just don’t expect anything soon until I have settled in my college room, stuff may come a bit sooner but don’t expect anything out of the blue.
Thanks for reading and until next time
Cheers…and take care
