It’s been a big day for us my fellow Star Wars fans! Not only did we finally get a title drop (because I mean Dear God it felt like we never would) but we also got our first look at this soon-to-be epic finale with the first ever teaser trailer dropped at Star Wars Celebration! I have to say it was near torture to be at work knowing that this thing was streaming online and that I couldn’t just go in the back at watch it with all the other awesome fans (who plans this kind of reveal for the middle of a work day I ask you?!) but a little after one o’clock I peered online and finally saw the title that we’ve all been waiting for and guessing at for the last year or so, and then had the strength of will (and the desire to not be fired for walking out and claiming it to be an official Star Wars Day of celebration!) I made it to a late lunch of 2:30 and finally got to see the teaser… and let me just tell you, I nearly fell out of my chair!
From the Han and Leia romance theme blaring in the background, to the backflip-onto-a-tie-fighter that shocked the entire fandom, to the victorious return of Lando Calrissian himself, this trailer was EVERYTHING I had hoped it would be and frankly so much more than I thought we would get! Needless to say, we’ve got A LOT to discuss!!! So we’ll definitely have a more in-depth breakdown of all the epic moments and hella shockers tomorrow but I just wanted to be here with you all tonight, my Star Wars family, as we gather around and take our first look at the end of the Skywalker saga… and appreciate all the magic it has created in our lives!!!
And thank you again for taking this year-long journey into the mythos of Star Wars with me, I know there were no posts this week but I declared a mini-break was very much in order (and very necessary to be honest) but never fear, we’ll continue right on with our regularly scheduled SW posts tomorrow with a deeper look at the trailer itself before returning to Episode III: Revenge of the Sith!!! ❤ Tara
Hello again my fellow Star Wars fans, I hope you’re having a delightful day — especially since there appears to have been some promotional leaks abounding on twitter regarding Episode IX 😀 Now I’m not one for massive spoilers myself, and in all honestly I didn’t get much out of the “leak” whether it was real or not, but it brought a lot of excitement to the fandom so yay for that!
Now down to tonight’s post… I’m going to level with you — I tried, but it just wasn’t happening. No matter how much I sat down and stared at the open Word doc, the words just were not flowing. And instead of freaking out, I’m choosing to find another option for when this invariably happens again — because let’s be real, even if you love something to distraction, you’re going to falter every now and then. It happens — or at least that’s what I’m telling myself!
Now I know my Whimsical Muttering’s family isn’t familiar with my creative writing efforts because that’s all usually posted on my moonstonemaiden blog, but I do have a Star Wars-esque story that I’ve been working on for sometime that I’ve been debating sharing nor not anyway, so my question for you guys is this: would you be interested in a reoccurring creative piece that would be updated on those days where I don’t want to disappoint by not posting anything, but the analytical muse is just not cooperating with me? No worries if it’s not something that interests you, I just want to make sure the site continues to grow and expand and has something to offer to everyone, even myself when I just need a helping hand 😀
So if your don’t mind, make sure to vote and let me know what you think and thank you guys so much for taking this epic Star Wars journey with me! Even though I stumble from time to time, I’m having so much fun breaking down this story and finding incredible new SW truths with you all!!! ❤ Tara
That’s right my fellow Star Wars fans, J.J. Abrams himself graced us with one helluva epic photograph today from the set of Episode IX along with the news that photography has wrapped and I don’t know about you but I am so torn between screaming with joy because we’re one step closer to finally knowing the whole story and having all our questions answered and flat-out sobbing because we’re almost finished with this epic sequel trilogy and I’m not ready to let go just yet!!! Suffice it to say I’m emotional AF and my voice is now at the register that only dogs can hear 😀 But happily we’ve still got a long way to go until December and the film’s ultimate release and I look forward to each and every post we get to share here on Whimsical Mutterings as we travel through the films together! Love you all ❤ Tara
It feels impossible, but today wrapped photography on Episode IX. There is no adequate way to thank this truly magical crew and cast. I’m forever indebted to you all. pic.twitter.com/138AprtFuZ
