Marvel Star Wars #8 Comic Review




In Star Wars #7 you may remember that the comic took a foray into the world of Ben Kenobi in solitude on Tatooine, we return with this issue to the previous story arc!

We return to the un-named planet where we saw to everyone's surprise, Han Solo's wife! After a bit of a verbal back and forth between Han, Leia & Sana Solo, Sana decides to give Leia up to the imperials and blows up Han & Leia's stolen shuttle!



We cut to Luke Skywalker piloting his X-Wing and still on his quest to learn to become a Jedi Knight.  They Land on an un-savoury planet called Nar-Shadda and find a Cantina where Luke wants to find un-registered transport to Coruscant to visit the Jedi Temple.  Luke gets attacked, for seemingly no reason at all and ignites his lightsaber, an unknown assassin disarms Luke and steals his Jedi weapon.

We go back to Han & Leia, Leia pulls a hidden blaster and trains it on both Han & Sana believing that Han has set her up! They look to the sky, just as a squad of TIE fighters scream into view!!!



I really enjoyed this one, not much happens to be honest and its definitely a 'filler' as it were, keeping the story arc ticking over. If you were looking for answers regarding Sana Solo, I feel you maybe waiting a while. 

The art overall was great, a few panels fell a little short, but not anything too bad.
The highlight of the story for me was the comparison that can be drawn between Luke looking for incognito travel options to Coruscant in a run-down Cantina full of non-desireables and him and 'Old Ben' doing the same in A New Hope

Join us soon for a review of the next Kanan instalment and thanks for reading.

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.
