Since we are all required to wear masks, has anyone been thinking about sporting a Darth Vader, Storm Trooper, or Kylo Ren mask? If you have, or have access to a 3D printer, MAKE ONE! This video shows you the basics. You just have to add in the supports so it actually, you know, protects you.
Anyways....light week this week as most are still hungover from Star Wars Day this past week. With that, let's geek out!
Over, the Clone Wars Are
We've heard this line before, but after watching the finale episode, there is that feeling that this is the end to the series that showed us how Obi-Wan, Anakin, Ahsoka, Jedi, and the Clones became legends in the Galaxy. The final episode is on Disney+ and was released this past Monday, May 4th. Fitting.
Got to say, the final scene was well executed.
but wait! There's more Star Wars movies and other stuff coming!
Returning To The Galaxy
I guess sending Thor into space at the end of Thor: Ragnorok gave Taika Waititi the in over at LucasFilm to dabble with The Mandlorian which then paid off because now the the JoJo Rabbit and What We Do In The Shadows writer and director has his hands on a Star Wars film. That's all we know right now. Just be excited that this man has his hands on the project over JJ Abrams. The Rise of Skywalker was terrible. I liked my theory better. I'll have a link to that at the end of this issue.
Cage The Kitty
There's going to be a series?! What the....
Did anyone have Nicolas Cage in their casting pool? I don't see why we need a whole series with a cast when the production team who filmed Tiger King probably have loads and LOADS of footage to use to create a sequel documentary. No word on when this series will start production.
With Venom: There Will Be Carnage and The Batman production being shut down due to COVID-19, Andy Sirkus has some free times on his hands. By the time you read about this event, it may be over since it was scheduled for Friday, May 8th. If you can catch it, it's in the tweet below. However, there is a go-fund-me.

Swinging Into 2022
We get to return to the spider-verse....just a little later than when we were suppose too. On Friday, Sony announced via Twitter that the sequel to the 2018 hit will be moved From April to October of 2022. The next chapter will explore more of the Spider-verse and Miles Morales as the next wall-crawler saving the neighborhoods in New York City. Along with Spider-Gwen, Spider-Ham, and Spider-Nior, this movie will feature,Takuya Yamashiro, the Japanese Spider-Man from the late 70's TV show that aired for one season in Japan. More will be announced soon, the Spider-verse is endless. The movie will now arrive in theaters October 7, 2022.
Don't forget to check out the Geek Freak of the Week Podcast! I tossed in the issue with the theory for how Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker could have gone. Yeah, I wish this happened. Oh well.
