Since we are at the end of Star Wars month and with Kenobi coming out, I want to write about my favorite things about Star Wars. There’s
so much to love from the characters to the movies themselves and even the universe as a whole.
My favorite Star Wars character of all time is Obi-Wan Kenobi. That is why I’m so excited to see everything the Kenobi show has to offer. I don’t think people quite realize everything Kenobi has gone through. He was thrust into being a master when he wasn’t ready. He saw so many people he cared about die; Satine, Qui Gon, and Anakin (Or so he thought). Thats not even the worst of it, he been enslaved multiple times by various people to try to get information out of him. He saw the order he devoted his life to serving crumble before him, because of someone who was like a brother to him. He never even thought about turning to the dark side. I can’t wait to see how Obi-Wan deals with all of that in Kenobi.
Now my second favorite character is not one I hear a lot of people like, which is Cal Kestis from Jedi: Fallen Order. I like how he was surviving essentially on his own for most his life after Order 66. He’s really strong with his abilities and he defeats multiple inquisitors. I’m sure each inquisitor has killed its fair share of Jedi so the fact that he stood up to them. Cal also has an amazing droid in BD-1, who helped Cal survive a lot. He made a tough decision about the list of force sensitive kids, but I love how he was able to make it.
My favorite movie is kind of controversial, which is Rise of Skywalker. It just feels the most like a “Star Wars” movie to me. The Kylo Ren and Rey vs Palpatine/Knights of Ren fight is my second favorite lightsaber battle in the series, right up there behind Obi-Wan vs Anakin on Mustafar. D-O is hilarious and honestly is the best droid in the movie. A surprising favorite in this movie is also General Hux, I like his “I don’t care who wins as long as Kylo Ren loses” motivation to betray him. Another thing that makes this movie feel awesome to me is the ending space battle where everyone comes in to fight the Sith eternal fleets. A classic Star Wars space battle.
Another movie I enjoy watching as much as Rise of Skywalker is Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Obi-Wan and Anakin are at their Peak in this movie. The fight where Anakin kills Dooku is really enjoyable as well. I really love how this movie shows Anakin as struggling, as he’s choosing who to trust. And as I said before this has my favorite lightsaber battle of all time; Anakin and Obi-wan on Mustafar. Obi-Wan in this movie is risks everything to help Anakin before being forced to defeat him.
In conclusion, Star Wars is one of my favorite series of all time. Its unique fun and has so many amazing characters. Like Obi-Wan and Cal Kestis. Amazing movies like Rise of Skywalker and Revenge of the Sith. But most importantly Star Wars is a family film that has stuff everyone can enjoy.
