Finished 2 more books in the last few days.
Aftermath: Life Debt 10/10
Life Debt is god damn amazing but Tarkin is just kinda meh. Could have done without it. Very forgettable.
I've slogged through the first 2 seasons of Rebels this summer. For every step forward it takes it seems to follow it with a step back. Ezra, the main character, is not very likable and makes Lukes whining seem tame. The rest of the crew is ok with Kanan Jarrus being the bright point. I do love the return of Ahsoka and Rex plus some cameos from OT players, especially Vader. But the biggest nut kick is the return, AGAIN, of Darth Maul. Just let the fucker be dead. Seriously. What sucks is that they are backing themselves into a corner timeline wise. It's hard to have Ezra and Kanan running around in this timeline considering the Jedi were "all but extinct" in A New Hope. To me their presence here greatly cheapens Obi-Wan and Luke's role in A New Hope. That being said the trailer for Season 3 looks good. But I still don't like the art style.
Thrawn is now cannon. With that he get's his own book written by Timmothy Zahn. Woohoo.
Alden Ehrenreich officially cast as Han Solo for upcoming Han Solo spin off movie.
This includes a deal to play Solo in 3 appearances with the spin off being one of them.
So, does he show up in the rumored Boba Fett film or does he get an origins trilogy or a combo of both?
