SDCC 2021-Amphibia Season 3 Sneak Peek

THE PROPHECY IS FULFILLED! Amphibia & Owl House Are Now One!

I’m bummed that I couldn’t write this for the people at The Game of Nerds, but I knew that I had to do this anyway. The cast and creators of Amphibia and The Owl House joined together to sit back and talk about these two great shows. THE PROPHECY HAS BEEN FULFILLED!!!

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 10 Cover

Finding Common Ground is A Great Way to Make Allies

Whatever happened to the Separatist’s after the Clone Wars ended? We saw Anakin slaughter the high command on Mustafar, but what about everyone else? What happened to the other people who supported the Separatists? In the old Expanded Universe, many of them went into hiding, died, or moved on. However, a few holdouts went on to join the rebellion against the Empire. And in this week’s episode of The Bad Batch, we get to see one such holdout join the infant rebellion. However, first the Bad Batch has to come to terms with their past and find common ground with a former enemy.

The Owl House S2 Episode 3-Eda and Baby King

What is the Origin of King? We Finally Learn More in New TOH Episode!

Who, or what, is King? Ever since The Owl House began, fans have fallen in love with the diminutive little demon. Not the least bit because A.) he looks like a Cubone, and B.) he’s voiced by Alex Hirsch. But we actually know very little about who he is and where he came from, besides his ranting about himself. Well, after twenty-three episodes, we finally get some hints about the origins of King! And it. Is. HUGE!

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 9-Omega Must Escape from Bane and T0-D0

The Truth About Omega! What Fans Suspected Was True!

When we first met Omega and learned that she was a special clone, fans began to come up with all sorts of theories. The leading theory being that she’s the last genetically pure clone made from Jango Fett’s DNA. With The Bad Batch now past the halfway point, the show’s begun to ramp up on the action and lore dumping, and its in this ninth episode that we get some big revelations. That, and we get to see just how tough Omega really is, even by herself.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 8-POV

The Clint Eastwood of Star Wars is in the Field!

It goes without saying that Dave Filoni’s just as big a fanboy about Star Wars as the rest of the fans. He wears his love for the franchise on his sleeve in everything he works on. However, as seen in The Mandalorian, Filoni’s also a big fan of old western movies. So, with The Bad Batch reaching the turning point in the series, it makes sense that Filoni pays homage to his other great love. And he does it in by bringing back another character from The Clone Wars. A character that may rightfully be considered the Clint Eastwood of the franchise.

The Owl House S2 Episode 2-Amity "Stay Away from My Luz"

Amity Stands up to Her Parents and It’s Glorious!

Remember the Season One episode “Understanding Willow,” and how it confirmed that Amity Blight has the worst parents on the Boiling Isles? It was at that moment that the fandom wanted nothing more than to tell Mr. and Mrs. Blight where to shove it. Then everyone went bonkers over Lumity, and the thing with Emperor Belos, and Amity’s awful parents were forgotten. However, that changes this week as Mr. and Mrs. Blight threaten to tear Amity away from her friends forever.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 7-Battle Scars

Battle Scars of the Clone Wars Haunt the Bad Batch in New Episode

Every war leaves its battle scars on those who fought it. But as bad as physical battle scars can seem, they may pale in comparison to the ones inside the mind. They psychological scars can haunt a person, even years after the war ended. In this week’s episode of The Bad Batch, “Battle Scars”, we see the squad and an old friend face the legacy of the Clone Wars head in a fight to save Wrecker.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 6-Omega's Packing Heat

So That’s What Happened to All the Battle Droids!

Say what you will about the Battle Droids, and there’s a lot to say about them. They’re clumsy, idiotic, and for the better part of twenty years, they’ve served as comic relief/cannon fodder in Star Wars. However, it’s because they’re usually so inept that the Battle Droids remain some of my favorite characters in Star Wars. When the Clone Wars ended, though, the vast majority of them got shut down. Some got reactivated or repurposed in the decades that followed, but the rest just dropped off the face of the Galaxy. Which begs the question: what did the Empire do with all the Battle Droids? We finally get to see what happened onscreen in the new episode of The Bad Batch.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 5-Rampage of the Rancor

I Now Officially Love the Rancor!

Rancors. Fans of Star Wars will remember them as the giant, hulking beast that tried to eat Luke in Return of the Jedi. However, that was merely one example of these magnificent and deadly creatures. In the expanded lore of the franchise, the Rancor has been used from everything from loyal pet to beast of war. But did you know that when they’re young, they look absolutely adorable? I didn’t, but after the newest episode of The Bad Batch, I am now a fan of the Rancor!

Amphibia Season 2 Episode 20-True Colors

Disney’s Darkest In Years! Amphibia Ends S2 On Highest Note

In the season finale to Amphibia, Anne and the others are finally able to return home. However, when Sasha and Grime reveal their plans, a series of revelations shatters the world of Amphibia like never before as things are changed forever.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 2-Hunter and Omega

Epiosde 2, & Bad Batch is Already Banking on its Predecessor

Even though The Clone Wars show ended last year, The Bad Batch makes us feel like it never did. As we saw in the hour long premiere, The Bad Batch went out of its way to make it seem like a continuation of The Clone Wars. Some fans have even jokingly called it “The Clone Wars, Season 8.” I don’t think they’re wrong, either. Case in point, the second episode to The Bad Batch brings back a character that only longtime fans of The Clone Wars may remember.
