eldritchhobbit: (Rogue One/Baze and Chirrut Comic)
Hey everyone!

There are several discussions of Star Wars meta from different sources I want to recommend:

* On the Guardians of the Whills Rejecting the Light Side/Dark Side Discord in Their Understanding of the Force (It's canon!) Note: This also includes discussion of Qui-Gon Jinn and the so-called Gray Jedi.

* How Rogue One Subverts Asian Male Stereotypes (And Why That's Important)

* Considering Baze and Chirrut in the Context of Chinese Culture and Storytelling
eldritchhobbit: (SW/Qui-Gon/What You Cannot)

I’ve been thinking about indie documentaries related to Star Wars – that is, documentaries above and beyond those “making of” and “behind the scenes” documentaries available with various versions of the DVDs, my favorite of which is Empire of Dreams from 2004, or channel-specific televised specials, such as ESPN's Star Wars: Evolution of a Lightsaber Duel from 2015, which my students love – that I find enjoyable/useful.

Here are the ones that come to mind:

* Looking for Leia (in production, Kickstarter in progress)

* Elstree 1979 (in production)

* The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan’s Journey (2016)

* Elstree 1976 (2015)

* I Am Your Father (2015)

* Plastic Galaxy: The Story of Star Wars Toys (2014)

* The People vs. George Lucas (2010)

* A Galaxy Far, Far Away (2001) 

Any recommendations for others? Thanks!
