Whether you're into Star Wars or not, you're always going to be fascinated by the epic battles between Jedi and Sith. And while there are many different types of Jedi, including the Dark Jedi, the Gray Jedi, and the Jedi Knight, there are also a number of Sith who are just as deadly. Using a Lightsaber is the only way to truly fight these evil warriors.

Gray Jedi​


Despite the popularity of Star Wars, the Gray Jedi vs Sith debate has yet to be settled. The Gray Jedi were a force-sensitive species from the planet Voss. Unlike the Sith, they were not bound by a specific code. Instead they were self-described as nonconformists and had their own code. Unlike the Sith, Gray Jedi did not fall to the dark side. Rather they were the product of a compromise between dark and light-minded Jedi.

The Gray Jedi may have the biggest brain, but they are not a centralized bureaucracy. Instead they are individuals who believe that life and death are both...

Despite all the similarities, there are many differences between Star Trek and Star Wars. The most prominent difference between the two is that Star Trek focuses on space travel, while Star Wars emphasizes the use of spacecraft. Other differences include the differences in asymmetrical threats, Warp speed, and women.

Asymmetrical threats​


Whether you are playing a Star Wars or Star Trek game, you will need to understand the difference between asymmetrical and conventional threats. Asymmetrical threats are those that strike with greater lethality and a greater amount of technology. These can include traditional military forces, mercenaries, criminal organizations, paramilitary forces, and terrorism.

Asymmetrical threats are not a new concept in warfare. They are simply the use of different tactics and equipment by conventional and unconventional actors to strike at their opponents. This is often done through the use of technology, such as...

During my travels in the Lego world, I have come across many rare and collectible Star Wars minifigures. Some of the more sought after are the Gold and White versions of Boba Fett, the Silver version of C-3PO, the Pre-Vizsla, and the wooden Sensei Wu prop from the Ninjago Movie.

Gold version of Boba Fett​


Among the most popular and well-loved characters in the Star Wars universe, Boba Fett is one of the most collectible Minifigures available. He has a carved body, realistic armor denting, and is even adorned with Mandalorian skull symbols. Boba Fett's resale value is very high. He is one of the rarest LEGO Star Wars Minifigures, and is available in a number of different variants.

In 2010, LEGO produced two Boba Fett Minifigures in solid gold. They were given away at a special Boba Fett giveaway during the Star Wars Celebration V convention in Orlando, Florida. The set was a limited edition and only two were produced.

Throughout the world of Star Wars, Jedis are the main heroic protagonists. They've appeared in many different movies and works of fiction, and have a deep connection to the Jedi Order, a religious organization that has been around for thousands of years. While Jedis are often thought of as being evil, they're often more heroic than they appear to be.

Luke Skywalker​


Whenever you see the words "Jedi" and "Jedi Knight" you may think of Luke Skywalker. He is the hero of the Rebellion. He is also a member of the Jedi Order. The Jedi are a group of trained warriors who use both light and dark sides of the Force. These warriors are tasked with fighting against enemies.

Originally, Luke was unaware of his Jedi abilities. He was trained to use the Force by Jedi Masters Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda. However, he never turned to the dark side. He is a military man and has the strength and dedication to defend the New Republic.

Luke is not a Jedi by name...

Whether you're new to the Star Wars franchise or you've watched them all before, you might be wondering what order the movies go in. The answer isn't hard to find, but you might not be sure where to begin.

Episode IV: A New Hope​


Originally titled Star Wars, the movie was released in 1977. It was followed by The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. All three were digitally remastered for the 20th anniversary of their release.

The climax of A New Hope features the assault on the Death Star. During this attack, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) sees two ships engaged in combat beyond the atmosphere. He runs down a trench toward the Death Star exhaust port. The resulting blaster fire from the stormtroopers forces Luke and his friends to flee on the Millennium Falcon.

The film also features R2-D2 and C-3PO. These two droids were inspired by Lucas's Alaskan malamute dog Indiana. He also drew inspiration from Akira Kurosawa's 1958 film The...

Now, fans of the series have learned that Benicio Del Toro, Lee Jung-jae, and Jodie Foster are slated to star in the new film. But what does the film have in store for fans?

Jodie Foster​


Earlier this month, Disney+ announced that they were developing a new "Star Wars" series, "The Acolyte". The eight-episode series will be based on the book by author David Ebershoff and takes place in the "High Republic", a period in the early history of the galaxy where the Jedi are fighting the Empire and the rebels.

It's not yet clear when the series will be released. However, it's likely to come out in the first half of 2024 on Disney Plus. The cast for the series includes Amandla Stenberg, Lee Jung-jae, and Dafne Keen.

Whether you've seen the latest movie in the Star Wars franchise, The Last Jedi, or are still excited about the upcoming movies, you're likely curious about what happened to Luke Skywalker. In the movie, he was left with his hand mangled and was presumed dead. Eventually, he found peace and became a Jedi, but there is still much mystery surrounding what happened to him and his hand.

The Last Jedi​


Despite his many failures, Luke Skywalker is one of the greatest Jedi Masters. He helped bring balance to the galaxy in the original Star Wars trilogy. He was also responsible for training a new generation of Jedi. His final act of heroism was meant to be a beacon of hope for rebels. He knew that he saved the galaxy and died peacefully.

In The Last Jedi, Luke finds inner peace and reconnects with the Force. He has a new appreciation for Rey and the Resistance. He even realizes that Darth Vader is his father. He also realizes that the Jedi legacy is...

During my recent trip to Hollywood, I discovered that there are many different Star Wars shows that are available to watch. These shows range from the very popular animated series, LEGO Star Wars, to the much more recent movies like The Force Awakens and The Mandalorian. I decided to rank the 10 best Star Wars shows available to watch today.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars​


Despite its early missteps, the animated series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" is a fantastic retelling of the classic "Star Wars" stories. The story follows Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano as they travel through the final years of the Galactic Republic. This series also introduced fans to Darth Maul, a ruthless criminal from the planet Dathomir.

The Clone Wars is a classic Star Wars tale that explores the clones' relationship with the Jedi and the Jedi's relationship with the clones. The story also focuses on the growth of Anakin and Ahsoka as well as the morality of cloning...
Darth Vader and Son?

Imagine Luke as a small boy and his father was Darth Vader. Imagine if Obi-Wan had not hid them away and they actually grew up with their dear old dad. Would Luke and Leia have turned out differently? Would Vader have given up the dark side long ago and would he have wound up playing ball with his son. Would he have used his mind control powers to tell Luke that this was not the toy he was looking for in the toy store?

The idea is not a new one. There was a YouTube video that explored what Darth Vader would be like as a parent. There is also a meme around that has Darth Vader and Luke standing in the elevator to be taken to the emperor, with the caption “Take Your Son to Work Day.” But where Jeffrey Brown got the idea was that Google wanted to have a cartoon doodle made for father’s day that showed the lighter side of the villain. But when Google’s editorial staff in charge of all things doodle decided against it, the artist, Brown, found another avenue. He...
Star Wars Snowboarding School? It’s More Likely Than You Think!

You know, one thing that I always felt was missing from Empire Strikes Back were snowboarding Jedi on Hoth. Imagine Luke skidding across the new snow taking out approaching Empirical enemies with his light saber. That would have been so darn cool, don’t you think? Well I’m not George Lucas, so I can’t add that into the film, but I’m happy to report that there is a place where your kids can learn to snowboard Star Wars style.

Sierra-at-Tahoe in Northern California has officially opened Yoda’s Riglet Park in cooperation with Burton Snowboards and LucasFilms. The new portion will introduce 3-6 year olds to the wonders of the sport in an environment that they will definitely love. Their adventure begins at what they called the Padawan Center. This is where they get some informal training through a series of pods hosted by everyone’s favorite instructor Yoda. Once they’ve graduated from those, they are then able to get right into it and tackle the gentle mountain...
Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace 3D Review

Well Jar Jar is officially back on the big screen as Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace returned to theaters last night in 3D, but how was the conversion that we’ve all heard so much about? Not that awesome. If you are expecting big scenes like in Avatar, you are going to be sorely disappointed.

I went to see the movie at the local AMC at the mall, put on my 3D glasses and sat down amongst what was a pretty big crowd actually. I have to give Lucas credit, even if the audience had so much venom for the flat version of the movie released more than 10 years ago, they still bought their tickets. So whether they booed or cheered, the money will still come rolling in.

So what was it like? Not a whole lot different than the original release. The problem with the process of converting 2D movies is that you get sort of a pseudo 3D effect, just like colorization of black and white movies that only colored some of the elements and not others. The 3D effects are...
