Admiral Wullf Yularen during The Clone Wars was very respected, just as much as he trusted the Jedi’s strategies he also analyzed them and came to his own conclusions on how things should be ran. He served among clones and stormtroopers, Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader. He is an interesting character as he is seen in both the cartoons and in film, which only a handful of characters can say the same. You can tell by the end of The Clone Wars that he has aged quite a bit and by the time Rebels roles around he is a full blown silver fox. After The Clone Wars his title changed from Admiral to Colonel, from serving The Galactic Republic to the Galactic Empire. You see him for a brief moment in A New Hope surrounded by the Grand Moff and Vader himself! #starwars#maytheforcebewithyou#inagalaxyfarfaraway#wullfyularen#clone#clonewars#rebels#anewhope#grandmofftarkin#darthvader#theroguewan
The first of the Anthology Star Wars films was a good film all in all. It was a bit muddled in the first act but more than made up for it in the second. And it was great to see the Empire and all the hints and Easter eggs from the original Trilogy again. Also gave us the best Vader scene of all time! I didn’t mind the use of the CGI faces of certain characters as the film is directly before the original so characters needed to actually look like they did back then for it to make sense! #starwars#astarwarsstory#rogueone#vadercorridorscene#deathstar#grandmofftarkin#empire#rebellionbuiltonhope
STAR WARS REVIEW: The Phantom Menace (1999)
Director: George Lucas
Starring: Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Jake Lloyd, Ian McDiarmid, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Pernilla August, and Frank Oz
We’re getting closer and closer to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, so what I’m going to do is review every Star Wars movie in chronological order leading up to that movie, starting with Episode I. I don’t hate the prequels like a lot of people do, but we can all admit they’re not the greatest movies. In this case, The Phantom Menace was okay. There were some good things about this movie while having some problems at the same time. First off, the whole prequel trilogy is very different from the original trilogy. Like having Jedi politics with meetings and all that?? I’m like very curious to know how George Lucas got that idea. I thought some of the performances were good, I didn’t love them. Everyone was at the same level of emotion that I wasn’t intrigued at all. The other movies like the original trilogy, The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and Revenge of the Sith all had very intriguing performances. This movie just comes off as poorly acted. Jake Lloyd’s performance as Anakin was really bad. Like for example, when he says “YIPEE!!!” or cheers after the finals space battle, I didn’t feel his excitement like he was actually feeling that way. Speaking of the final space battle, Jake’s acting doesn’t really feel like Anakin is there involved in the battle. Like for example, in the live action Jungle Book movie that came out last year, almost the whole movie was CGI and Neel Sethi, who plays Mowgli, was intriguing because it felt like he was actually there where things were happening. In this case, I can just imagine Jake Lloyd saying his lines in front of a green/blue screen. Also, the dialogue he was given was terrible. And of course....there’s Jar Jar Binks. This character was supposed to be the “comedic” one, and man did George Lucas fail at that in every way. He’s weird, annoying, and Jar Jar’s voice was just....blah. (Continued in Comments)
Undoubtedly, each of these beautiful portraits by @aaronjriley deserves it’s own post, but as we’re almost at 1 month until The Last Jedi, I’ll be focusing almost exclusively on the new trilogy characters/ships/settings etc., but these are really spectacular, I hope you all enjoy!

It occurs to me that I never uploaded this painting in colour, but in monochrome. Better late than never: here's the Governor of the Outer Rim and commander of the DS-1 Orbital Battle Station, Wilhuff Tarkin.
