I feel this needs to be shared more because it’s Diego Luna’s birthday, and I’m pretty sure he’s still wishing for it. I don’t even tumbl and still made this tumblr account specifically to spread the magic. Here’s what I wrote on my instagram post when I first put it up a week ago. (I’ve seen Rogue One THREE times now.):

“Okay. Let me explain… Those who follow me on twitter are well aware my #StarWars high has been at lightspeed for the past while, because it’s almost all I talk about. I saw #RogueOne for the second time just last night (IT IS SO GOOD), and will be seeing it again this Friday. After viewing number two, I desperately wanted to #draw fanart. Some of my #drawing ideas walk a spoiler-y line, so I opted to do something slightly related, a little random and ridiculous, and still get my fix. Enter Diego Luna, and his wonderful life-long fascination with #JabbaTheHutt. In interviews for the Rogue One press tour, he often mentions how he’s always longed to touch Jabba, to see what the texture is like. (He also mentioned kissing, but I didn’t go there.) Instead of going to bed, I spent a few hours drawing this fantasy of his because why the hell not? My Christmas wish for Diego is that his dream of touching Jabba comes true some day. Until then, enjoy this absurd #fanart, Diego! You kicked ass as #CassianAndor! (Fun fact: I once shared a plane with Diego 5 years ago from SF to Toronto. I was returning home and he was heading to the #TIFF. I knew I recognised him, but couldn’t place where. The extent of my interaction with him was a polite nod as he squeezed his way down the aisle to pass me. After landing, my sisters greeted me with “DID YOU KNOW #DIEGOLUNA WAS ON YOUR FLIGHT?” I missed you too, girls. Haha)”

The Clone Wars (2008) – Anakin vs. Dooku

So many things to love here: Anakin and Dooku dueling in the Dune Sea against the backdrop of starry desert sky, complete with Tatooine’s three moons. Dooku’s taunt about this being Anakin’s home world, and how he can sense his feelings of pain and loss. The anguished expression on Anakin’s face. The mini sandstorm he calls up via the Force in retaliation, which he sends hurtling toward the Sith Lord. (Of course, Dooku deflects it and sends it back tenfold, knocking him down, but the fact that Anakin actually uses sand as a weapon here is beyond perfection and tickles me to no end.)

This is also our first glimpse of angry!Anakin in this series, as Dooku informs him that his ‘insignificant little padawan’ is surely doomed. “She’s more skillful than you think,” Anakin replies, as my Snips and Skyguy feels explode. He speeds away toward Ahsoka, and Dooku watches him go, cackling gleefully. The fact that this is Sir Christopher Lee’s final performance in this role renders the entire scene infinitely more precious to me. The music here is also beautifully stirring, and solidifies this as one of my favourite moments of the animated movie.
