Lucasfilm announces ‘Forces of Destiny’ – A Continuing Series of Animated Shorts Based Around their HEROINES!!

Looks kinda like the DC Girl Power shorts, only Star Wars. Featuring, Leia, Rey, Jyn, Sabine, Hera and Ahsoka. Not only that, but Daisy Ridley, Felicity Jones, Tiya Sircar and Ashley Eckstein. Lupita Nyong’o will narrate the shorts as Maz Kanata.

Oh, and of course there are already toys in the works.

The Force Awakens – self-promotion

I know that this is now the old Star Wars movie (!), but I’ve been working on this for most of the year (on and off) and thought it was about time I shared it. It was just done for my portfolio so isn’t for sale (unless I can somehow get it licensed!), but it was a bit of a labour of love and I hope you like it.

An interesting parallel between Rey’s origins and the orphans on Jedha

Now the temples were barred and the communities of faith scattered, and where there had been homes and families there were refugees and orphans. Every day there were more of each……. Children orphaned by parents who had managed to steal aboard a freighter or a transport, desperate to flee Jedha, leaving with every intention of returning for their families once they had made it to safety, to security, to freedom.Chirrut had yet to hear of any who had actually come back.

~ Star Wars Guardians of the Whills novel

Dear child, I see your eyes - you already know the truth. Whomever you are waiting for on Jakku, they’re never coming back.

~ Maz Kanata in the Force Awakens

Drawing a parallel between the situation on Jedha and Jakku’s proximity to the Unknown Regions, Rey’s parents could have left Jakku with the intention of returning for Rey but were either imprisoned, forced to work in mines or killed by the First Order.

Boy George & Marilyn photographed by Derek Ridgers, 1980.

There was a time Boy George didn’t wear frocks and jewellery. Just a pretty kimono. This was how he looked nearly four years ago. Alongside him is his pal Marilyn.  Behind them is the house in Couburton Street, central London which they shared with fellow squatters. Marilyn remembers the squat fondly. “ I discovered the amazing clubs in London and realised there were other freaky people like me. It was George O'Dowd and me against everybody else, going to parties and seeing who could look the prettiest.” Both have come a long way and gone their separate ways, since those days, Yet their steps aren’t that for apart.

(Record Mirror,  April 1984)

Star Wars Preference- What They’re Like When You’re Sick

Maz jokes around about it and is pretty easy going. She wants you to be alright and always pops in to check on you.
“You are right back in the mess.” You hear Maz say as she wants into your room and sees you curled up in blankets with tablet packets, tissues and heat packs all over the bed.
“Yeah.” You tell her in a hoarse voice.
“Alright, I’ll make soup.” She says smiling as she walks off.

Phasma is very protective when you’re sick and will do anything to make you feel better. She also keeps major guard on your door and makes sure no one disturbs you.
“What are you doing here?” Phasma says to a fellow stormtrooper 
“I was going to see y/n, Captain.” 
“That won’t be happening, now move along.” 

Rey is pretty scared when you’re sick; she worries that it could get worse and she also never likes you being in pain.
“Is she okay?” Rey asks Poe who is standing out the front of your bedroom door.
“Yeah, she’ll be alright. Puked twice today but her fever seems to be going down. She’ll be fine, Rey.” Poe says reassuring his friend. 

Han makes sure to always check up on you and tries to make you smile as much as possible while you’re sick. 
“Who’s there?” You yell pathetically as you rush out of the bathroom with a toothbrush for protection.
“Hey… it’s me. Now come on toothbrush warrior, time to get back to bed.” He says to you smiling as he helps you into bed.

I literally

love this show so much like just

look at these small children

look how confident he is being a female superhero

look at his friend making fun of him

but then just helping him/her during the battles

and she’s so protective of them.  

I literally can not describe how adorable this show is. Like I need y’all to watch it immediately. Right now. On Netflix. So I can fangirl with someone.
