E-Mails Between Master & Padawan About Ahsoka’s Decision

By now, I’m sure you’ve all had a chance to digest what happened in the Season Five finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It was very emotional and like I teased all season long, I’m sure you now have more questions than answers about what happened and what’s going to happen next. Imagine being in my position, having to keep this a secret for so long! The suspense has been killing me! We recorded these last four episodes a year ago and I was definitely shocked when Dave Filoni told me that Ahsoka was going to walk away from the Jedi Order. It took me awhile to digest this news and I clearly remember, like it was yesterday, when it finally hit me that Ahsoka’s life and my life was changing forever. Dave Filoni sent me an email about recording the final scene with Matt Lanter. The word “final” hit me like a ton of bricks. We’ve been recording The Clone Wars for seven years now. I’ve grown extremely fond of my time in the recording studio, especially getting to record the scenes between Anakin and Ahsoka with Matt. They had become routine, commonplace and when I realized that the final scene of the season was the final scene with Ahsoka and Anakin, it broke my heart. I wasn’t sure if I was ready for that change. I immediately emailed Dave back with several questions so I could understand WHY? In order to give the emotional performance needed for the final episode, I needed to get inside Ahsoka’s head. His answers were amazing and I wanted to share them with you just in case you have some of the same questions I did. Continue Reading

A Padawan’s Journal: Ooo, Shiny

I sometimes hear writers whine about questions they hate to answer. For example: “If one more person asks me where I get my ideas, I’ll scream! (I’m gonna say they’re delivered by stork.)” Or: “I’ll strangle the next fan who asks ‘Why did you have your character do X? (Blame it on my unhappy childhood.)” Or: “How am I supposed to describe my writing process? It’s ART, for criminy sake! I sacrifice a fatted reader to the gods of creativity and Snoopy dance under a full moon.)” I am puzzled by this whining because these are all questions I’m perfectly happy to answer. Repeatedly.

Star Wars: Episodes I, II, and III – Am I really the only person who does not absolutely hate them?

With all the Star Wars Talk going on as of late I am seeing a resurgence of the bashing that follows the prequel trilogy, and for the record – yes they were bad, yes that had flaws, and yes they cursed us with the knowledge that Jar-Jar Binks is now part of our Star Wars collective consciousness – BUT IT IS STILL STAR WARS!!! I think the beating they have gotten if far worse than they deserve. Episode I: The Phantom Menace Production Budget: $115,000,000. Domestic Total Gross: $431,088,295 Domestic Lifetime Gross: $474,544,677
Flaws: An awful introduction of Anakin Skywalker, An attempt to explain The Force using “science” (Midichlorians), FUCKING JAR-JAR BINKS, Underuse of Darth Maul, terrible dialog, and too much focus on the special effects juggernaut that was the pod races.
Strengths: Liam Neeson as Quai Gon Jin, Ewan McGregor as a fucking fantastic young Obi Wan Kenobi, Natalie Portman as Padme Amidala, and some of the BEST saber fights that have ever been brought to the big screen. Continue Reading

J.J. Abrams and the assault on my fandom…

J.J. Abrams and the Assault on my Fandom...

J.J. Abrams and the Assault on my Fandom...

I catch a lot of flak from people because of my EXTREME displeasure with the spin J.J. Abrams put on the so called "New" Star Trek franchise (it is even difficult to type the name when I am referring to his movie). Look at it as you will but I have A TON of very valid reasons for feeling the way I do. And the recent announcement that Abrams is taking over the Helm at the Star Wars universe does not make me feel any better about him. For me, and many, many others - Star Trek is more than a series, it is more than a set of movies, or a collection of books. It is inspiration. It is an imagining of what would could be. It is often referred to as Utopian but I prefer to think of it more as enlightened. "Abrams didn't really get what Star Trek was about in his first movie. (And based on what we've seen thus far, Star Trek Into Darkness will be more of the same.) The emphasis on exploration, on pushing the boundaries of human knowledge, on using our power wisely, on trying to understand the Other, Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations, all that made Star Trek" something that has lasted for for more than FOUR DECADES — "it's not in the first Abrams Trek movie at all." In this fans opinion that is nothing short of criminal. Continue Reading
