24 Star Wars Movie Saga Questions.

I knew I wanted to do a Star Wars related post for May 4th, but I just wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do. I absolutely love Star Wars, but I am a fan of the movies. I have never read the comics, and I haven’t gotten around to watching the TV shows, except for Mandalorian, and I have not read the book yet either. Some would say that doesn’t make me a real Star Wars fan, and well, you can have your opinion, but I consider myself one anyways.

I decided to do a questionnaire type post which I’ve never done before! So I gathered up a bunch of Star Wars related questions from various corners of the internet and put together the ones I knew I could answer, as they weren’t too complicated or too far out of my realm of Star Wars Cinema love.

Star Wars Questionaire 

Favorite movie In the prequels: Revenge of the Sith: Obi-Wan’s battle with Anakin on the Lava is incredible. When Obi-Wan is telling Anakin how he was supposed to save them, not destroy them, that scene gets me every time.

Favorite movie in the originals: Return of the Jedi. In this movie, Luke is really figuring himself out, he’s a little more sure of himself, less whiny, and I like that. I love the addition of Ewoks too!

Favorite movie from the Sequels: The Rise of Skywalker: I know that many of you have multiple opinions of the sequels and this one specifically. But for me, personally, I loved it. In a Saga like this one, it can be so hard to find a way to pull so much content together, and on top of that finding a way to deal with not having an actual Carrie Fisher to work with, I cannot imagine how hard it is. It was REALLY important to me to have Leia in this film, and I’m glad they managed to figure out how to do that, because truthfully if she didn’t play the role that she does here, I think my opinion would be a bit different. If you have not watched it yet, it drops on Disney plus today, and I highly recommend it.

Least Favorite Movie: Not including the spin-offs because then I would say Rogue One. Attack of the clones does not grab my attention like the rest of them do. It’s a good movie, just not my favorite although The Battle of Geonosis was pretty cool. I can honestly say that there is not a single Star Wars movie that I dislike. Some are not my favorites, but I still like them.

What Era would you have liked to be apart of? I would have wanted to be apart of the Original Era. An adventure with Han Solo and Chewie on the falcon is a dream.

Favorite Villain? How could I not say Darth Vader, but I especially liked Kylo Ren as well, both of their journeys to the dark side were fascinating. But Palpatine is just evil, pure absolute evil. From his games as Supreme Chancellor all the way through, pure evil.

Favorite Characters from the originals: Han Solo. He’s just too cool. Even when he’s a jerk, he’s still cool.

Favorite character from the prequel: This is hard. Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan is pretty cool to me, but I have always loved Yoda, so Yoda, for sure.

Favorite Character from the Sequels: I initially want to say, Poe Damien. I just really like his style and the way he comes off the screen. Also, because I have such a love for Adam Driver, I really love Kylo Ren. Good or Evil, he plays it so well.

Favorite non-human character: (Besides Yoda because I already used him above): Jar Jar Binks makes me laugh every time. I’m obsessed with Chewie. The Ewoks are so cute. The porgs are precious, so precious in fact that my 27-year-old ass has a stuffed animal porg, and it’s one of my favorite things.

Favorite Villain? How could I not say Darth Vader, but I especially liked Kylo Ren as well, both of their journeys to the dark side were fascinating. But Palpatine is just evil, pure absolute evil. From his games as Supreme Chancellor all the way through, pure evil.

Favorite Droid? C3PO is always a god damn treat. Whether it’s his lines or the delivery of them, he brings something special to the screen.

If you could be one of the characters, who would you choose, and why? I think I’d have to stick with Leia. I love how even when she’s in distress, she’s not a damsel in distress. She sometimes needs saving, but she’s not helpless. She’s defiant, and she’s strong, she’s smart, she’s loving, she’s commanding. She has so many incredible qualities.

What Jedi master would you prefer: I think I’d prefer Qui-Gon. He was a bit less stuck up than the rest. Not that I think the Jedi are bad, they just are particular in their ways, which I guess you’d have to be, but I like how Qui-Gon pushes that a little bit.

Favorite planet: It might be sand filled, but the view is gorgeous. There are so many moments that matter that are done on this planet.

Would you prefer to be fighting on the front lines or in a more technical role?: This is a tough one. I’m not the most technically savvy person, but I’m not sure I’d be ready to be in the middle of the fight, being a pilot and such so I think many I’d be better in a more technical role.

What would your Star Wars name be: I want to immediately say Rae because that’s my middle name, and I love it, but that’s kind of already taken. I also know that there are a lot of Star Wars name generators out there, and I checked them out, but nothing really spoke to me. My Rae is spelled differently, so I think it’s fair, and this is my questionnaire, so I’m going with Rae. 😉 If you have a better suggestion, lay it on me!

Favorite Quote: I don’t believe that it is possible to pick just one. I love Han Solo’s “never tell me the odds” and “Laugh it up, fuzzball.” I love Yodas. “No, try not. Do or do not. There is no try”. Qui-Gon’s “Your focus determines your reality.” And of course, as a person who believes in the vibe people bring, trusting your instinct and your gut Obi-Wan’s “Your eyes can deceive you. Don’t trust them,” is forever a favorite.

Favorite Cinematography moment: The two moons moment with Luke. I don’t see how you top that. I did a project for my film class on this movie, and I had to analyze the shit out of it. I fell even more in love with it the more I dove in.

Favorite Moment in general: While it was sad when Luke died, the set up was incredible. I think I’d say the same about the way that Leia died. Yoda’s lightsaber fight with Palpatine was also very cool. When the clones turn on the Jedi, and it’s revealed Palpatine had the just waiting for his signal to attack, I’ll never forget that the first time I watched it. Those moments stick out in my mind right away.

Jedi or Sith: I would much prefer to be a Jedi, but my emotions would probably screw that up for me. Fighting the dark side would be hard, I could do it, but it would be a lot of work.

What brought you into Star Wars? I have only been watching Star Wars for maybe four years now. Co-workers of mine kept telling me how much I’d like it. And I knew I would because I was (and still am) really into the whole sci-fi/fantasy genre, but I had just never gotten around to watching. I was in a car accident in December, and I had to stay home for a week due to whiplash, but mostly my back, I have a bad lower back, so I had to be cautious. During this week at home, I decided it was the perfect time to watch the movies. They were on my on-demand system on my TV, and I watched the Originals and the Prequels in Two Days, and I was hooked within minutes of A New Hope. (I watched them 4,5,6,1,2,3). I eventually watched Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Episode 7- The Force Awakens. The Last Jedi was the first movie I saw in theaters; then I saw Solo: A Star Wars Story, and of course, on opening night, I went and saw The Rise of Skywalker. The rest is history.

What does Star Wars mean to you? Many probably say it is a reminder of their childhood or something, but for me, I guess you could say it’s a safe space, especially when the worlds a little crazy. The Star Wars movies have become my go-to movies when I’m in a mood. If I have anxiety or a depressive episode, or I just had a bad day, they’re there. I pay for Disney Plus simply because then I have access to them all.

What part of the Star Wars world have you yet to dive into? When the Mandalorian was released, I was unsure if I would like it. Boy was I wrong, I absolutely loved it, and I’m anxiously awaiting more. My next Star Wars adventure is going to be to watch all of the clone wars. I’m also big into reading, so I think I’d like to add some Star Wars stories to my bookshelf soon.

I am not perfect. I forget things, I don’t have the battle names memorized, I’m working on understanding all of the history of this world, and like I said I’ve only seen the movies, but I deeply love this Universe. The directing, the score, the writing, the acting, the cinematography, it is all so wonderfully put together. I’ve noticed that I’m one of those fans that just love it, I don’t have much critique on anything, at least nothing significant. I simply ENJOY the entertainment it provides. I’m not sure what I hope for the future, but this world has never let me down before, so I’m not expecting it too. I’m excited about the future of Star Wars because let’s face it; there are so many more stories to tell.

may the force be with you

I launched Miss Raee in 2016 purely for a twenty-something girl who is trying to figure it all out, who loves to write and finally decided to share it. I’ve had a hell of a time figuring out what I wanted this blog to be, and I’ve eventually narrowed it down to that I want this blog to be ME, every weird, quirky, loveable aspect of me and even more importantly anyone who also sees themselves as that weird, quirky, loveable person who might love plant-based cooking, multiple fandoms including Star Wars, Supernatural, Greys Anatomy, DC TV, Marvel, The Magicians and SO much more. I found myself being an advocate for mental health, for animals, for the environment, and for equality. I’m a big believer in the vibes you bring, the power of music, and how important the storytelling of books and movies and TV can be. If I’m not on the blog, you can find me sharing selfies and nonsense on Instagram @/amandaraeex3 and live-tweeting and putting in my two cents on twitter at @/amandaraee_x3, so I hope you’ll tag along with me on here and my social media and enjoy all the weird, quirky things we all love.
