Marvel Kanan; The Last Padawan #5 Review

The awesomeness that is Kanan: The Last Padawan continues in A Galaxy Far Far Away.........

The Clones that were hunting a young padawan called Caleb Dume finally capture him and his new friends.
Back on the Clones' ship it transpires that the Clones were supposed to kill Caleb and not take him prisoner, he tries to appeal to the Clones' better nature and talk them into not killing him but they don't listen and the young Jedi, backed into a corner uses the Force to open an air lock which sucks him into the dark, empty void of space.

Just in the nick of time, Calebs friends arrive in their ships, see what has happened and somehow manage to get him aboard a ship.  The Padawan survives but they are closely pursued and attacked by the Republic turned Imperial clone ship.  One of the Clones has a crisis of conscience and decides that what they are doing wrong and opens fire on his allies to save the kid!

The friends have escaped and land , safe for now.  Caleb decides he needs to go it alone and takes a ship and the only items he requires, a lightsaber and Jedi holocron. He also decides that he is Caleb Dume no more, that name died with his master, he announces himself as Kanan, Kanan Jarus.

Suddenly we see an older Kanan being roused by Hera Syndulla in the cockpit of the Ghost ship from Rebels and their about to land on Kaller!

This continues to be, for me anyway Marvels best Star Wars comic series from the new batch!
Story line is intriguing and exciting and I look forward to reading the next panel, let alone the next comic and the art is superb.  The story doesn't try to cover too any aspects and jump from story line to story line like some of the others and just flows with ease.  The most interesting part for me was the individual Clone Trooper doubting that what he was doing was right?  We were led to believe that after 'Order 66' the Clones were made to follow orders without question or compromise.  And if you remember back to The Clone Wars TV series, the clones were implanted with chips in their heads, one of the Clones had a defective chip, maybe this is the case?!

Anyway, in summary.....BRILLIANT!!!

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  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 th

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. Read the full article here.
