LISTEN to the recording of #StarWars “A New Dawn” Prologue by Dave Filoni

I like this recording of the Dave Filoni Prologue to Star Wars: A New Dawn by John Jackson Miller because it discusses Lucasfilm’s stance on their Story Group and unifying the canon by through trusting the Force. It opens up stories for all. There’s a huge misnomer and a lot of fans feel they can take out their frustrations on the main Star Wars social media sites. Well, forget the old way and trust the Force.

The Star Wars Actors Guild 77 would like you to listen and ponder this excellent sample.

A Force To Reckon With – In memorial to Mr. Jason “Obi-Wan” Wolfe

young obi-1

Mr. Jason “Obi-Wan” Wolfe was a member of the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 for ~2 years before he passed in 2013. He assisted us on managing several of our Star Wars pages. August 8, 2014 will mark the 1 years anniversary of his death.

Out of several roleplay performances we did, this performance stands out the most. This performance was done in July, 2012 before any knowledge of any of the stories done by Star Wars, today. We did not know the outcomes of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Satine Kryze. But we predicted it by our roleplay performance with Jason’s help. Here’s to you:

Dear #StarWars Fan Police: Overpolicing Star Wars Fandom Brutally

The fan police or the gatekeepers for Star Wars fandom has probably been going on since 1977.

Fan police are over-exuberant fans who think they have watched every single tinkle of Star Wars since they learned of this movie’s existence. They are the know-it-alls of Star Wars. Not Gurus who have the patience of Yoda. Not openness like Supreme Chancellor Palpatine (Darth Sidious). This type of fandom is a psychosis. They have an inappropriate connection to fictional material that drives their daily existence, and it is dangerous. It is what gets moviegoers killed in movie theaters because of one person’s psychosis clinginess to fictional material.

Fans express their fandom uniquely.  It is a personal choice. There is no one way to pursue fandom. Being a fan is about camaraderie and fun. It is about freedom of expression and exchange of ideas so that we all revel in delight. Fans come at different levels. Some just want to bask in the sunlight, and glide along the waves. Some fans want to dive deep into the ocean of the Star Wars milieu. Some fans want doctorates of literature, filmmaking, pop culture iconography in Star Wars. Some fans have Ph.D.’s in Star Wars.

But whatever one’s fandom, it is not lumping an entire group of fans into a pile and debasing or trolling them to hurt them. That is not Star Wars fandom. Just like real life bigotry, racism, homophobia, and many other social injustices aren’t fandom, the above tweet, sexism by gender bash is not Star Wars fandom, too.  That is not gatekeeping, because fandom for this genre is about upliftment, not tearing down.

If the Star Wars Actors Guild 77 has said it once, it will say it again, fandom may be what you make of it, but it is yours, it is a gift. It is precious and you should keep it as your expression of your creativity. But hurting others because their Star Wars fandom is not like yours shows that you don’t love yourself  enough to love Star Wars. You are not a fan yourself if you have to post that psychopathy.

Get help.
