HMDYK About Carl Weathers

Carl Weathers as Greef Karga

Sadly, within the past week, we lost the irreplaceable and amazing Carl Weathers. I’ve been trying to do more posts from this series and I will try to do more in the future. In light of Carl Weather’s passing and given that it’s Black History Month, I think he is a good place to start in 2024. How much do you know about Carl Weathers?

He was born in New Orleans in 1948. Little is known about his parents; his father was a hard-working day laborer; even less is known about his mother. He was a very athletic person, playing numerous sports in high school.

Star Wars: Bad Batch Final Season Trailer

We have a trailer for the first bit of 2024 Star Wars content. The trailer for the third, and final, season of The Bad Batch. First, watch the trailer, and then I will quickly touch on what has some folks in a tizzy (beware, there will be spoilers).

Star Wars: The Mandalorian & Grogu Movie!

The Mandalorian & Grogu

If you are a fan of any part of the franchise you may have heard the latest, official, news. Jon Favreau will direct a new movie featuring the Mandalorian. The Mandalorian & Grogu movie will begin production this year (2024) but an official release date, or year, has not been provided.

There are no more details provided as it pertains to this new film however it gives us a few things to ponder.

Final Thoughts and Theories on Ahsoka

I’m going to start off by saying that I really do enjoy this series. People often ask me what my favorite Disney+ Star Wars series is, which is always difficult to answer. There are many things to consider when making that decision. I’m not particularly eager to rank Star Wars movies or series. I will watch all of them multiple times throughout the year. I enjoy them all and each for different reasons.

That being said, in terms of acting, writing, world-building, and character development, Andor easily wins out. It’s probably the best in the franchise. However, the series I connect with the most are Ahsoka and Kenobi.

Ahsoka Part Eight

Ahsoka Part Eight Ezra

Title: The Jedi, the Witch and the Warlord
Directed By: Rick Famuyiwa
Runtime: 48 minutes

I can’t believe we are already at the (season one) finale! It has been an incredible journey and I’m looking forward to more (please let there be a season two). I will probably write a separate post that wraps up my thoughts and feelings on this series but, in the meantime, let’s talk about Ahsoka Part Eight.

The director is no stranger to the Star Wars franchise. Rick Famuyiwa has directed several excellent episodes of The Mandalorian. He does another fantastic job on this finale.

With time running out, Ahsoka, Ezra, and Sabine must race to try to stop Thrawn from returning to the home galaxy. Is Thrawn prepared to face Anakin’s former padawan?

Ahsoka Part Seven

Mon Mothma Ahsoka Part Seven

Title: Dreams and Madness
Directed By: Geeta Vasant Patel
Runtime: 45 minutes

This is the penultimate episode of the season. I don’t know how much preamble I can provide. Geeta Vasant Patel is a new director to the franchise. I don’t recognize much of her other work but I think she did a great job on Ahsoka Part Seven.

Of course, we should start with a quick recap. Thrawn has completed his preparations for his return to the home galaxy. Ahsoka arrives at Peridea with a trap waiting for her. Shin and Baylan’s alliance with the bandits makes trouble for Ezra and Sabine.
