anticipate a few questions, this comic is set in an actual New Lunar
Republic, a country in Equestria populated by bat ponies who live a
nocturnal lifestyle (so they work and go on about their business during
that time, hence the night scene here) and even have Shadow Lanterns to
keep their streets nice and shady and protect them from the blinding
sunlight. Those remain on the whole time to help against the bright moon
light. Pun was pretty ballsy to pull off a grand theft baked goods in
Strawberry Glimmer, the NLR citizen depicted
here, runs a little bakery and strawberry tarts happen to be her

The world of movies (and comedy) will never be the same again.
This ingeniously creative man has left a legacy of great movies, great performances, and great characters, and in my humble opinion the best one of all is Mr. John Keating from “Dead Poets Society”.
This movie shows how a teacher’s passion for his job, which is to look after and nurture future generations of students to be the best they can be, can drive him to the highest peaks and the lowest of pitches, yet the ups and downs of life don’t make him enjoy the ride any less. Through the best and the worst, it’s the inspiration we give in others and the one that we get back what makes us keep going forward.
Very much like how Robin Williams inspired an entire generation of actors, artists, comedians, and people in general, always with that perennial smile on his face, and a joke in his pocket.
Seriously though, this could be the best of these prequels, actually.
If only because it does have some legit gravitas added to the story and the characters. It doesn’t matter if the dialogue is almost transparent, because this allows us to focus on some pretty harrowing visuals. The last segment feels like it’s something out of a nightmare, with that lava planet, those dark red tones, the destruction of the Jedi Temple, the birth of the Empire. It all feels right. It took two and a half movies to arrive, but it finally feels like Star Wars.
Needless to say there’s a few things that don’t work, like the brainless romance dialogue, and the chemistry between the characters is almost non-existent, not to mention the robotic way they deliver their lines, but these are small distractions that don’t ruin the final product…much.
With that said however, I think I’m done.
Don’t get me wrong, I still like Star Wars, but after the prequels I feel like I just got beat up with a toy light-saber for seven hours. It’s going to take a lot for me to regain my faith in this franchise.
Thank you all for following me during this intense marathon, and I hope you all enjoyed it.
