Star Wars; Kanan The Last Padawan #3 Review


SPOILERS AHEAD!

star wars kanan the last padawan

Caleb has stolen a ship and is being pursued through space by Clones who were once his companions. He manages to escape and whilst in Lightspeed remembers that he has nowhere to go and also decides that he must stop thinking like a Jedi to avoid detection.

He returns to the Spaceport where he stole the ship on Kaller and is confronted by The Sentinent, Janus Kasmir who is not happy an gives Caleb a telling off, and reminds him that Caleb cannot follow any more and must fend for himself!  The young Padawan runs off.


Caleb still has nowhere to go, so tracks Janus as he makes his way to a shady meeting in a dark back alley.
Things with the group of undesirables don't seem to be going well and kanan decides to jump in, literally, slaying some thugs with his lightsaber.

Janus is not happy with Caleb about ruining his deal for recruiting new crew members and tells him that he must take there place and must become less conspicuous by dispensing of his Jedi tell tale signs.

Caleb cuts his hair, ditches his robes, holocron and lightsaber and dons a blaster and garb that we are more familiar seeing him in in Rebels. He also drops the name Caleb and has no name for now.
The two go on a mission to steal some droids but are caught out when they get too greedy and are arrested, things appear to go from bad to worse for Caleb when Janus tells the authorities that he is a Jedi to try and save his own skin!



This series continues to impress and ties in well with what we already know based on Rebels and the novel 'A New Dawn'. We begin to see the journey of Caleb the Padawan into Kanan, beginning with him realising he must ditch his Jedi ways, including mind set, name and material objects. He also finds it easier than he thought to turn to crime, which surprises him after his teachings at the Jedi Temple. The story starts a bit slow but progresses really well in the end and art is great. This series continues to be an exciting, gripping read that is developing what will be an even more popular character in the future.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
