The Star Wars Mega Marathon.

Revenge of the Sith was last in theaters in 2005. Since then, there have been five more movies released, and Star Wars has hit the streaming services with Disney+. The amount of Star Wars content has increased exponentially!

With this in mind, I am going to begin my Star Wars mega-marathon! As of May 4, 2023, I am viewing every movie and TV show that is canon (in my head) chronologically. I will give one day to each movie and TV episode.

It should take me 359 days including Ahsoka coming out in August.

Here is the listing. Below that, I am, including some thoughts I have on the re-watch that includes the additional perspective of having seen the movies and shows (and a few books) before.

6/8/23 – Day 36

  • CW S2E8
    • Mace Windu is mention being on the planet Dantooine. This is a reference to the clone wars micro-series.
There are two Havocs in the Grand Army of the Republic. This one is not the ARC trooper. He represents Tango Company.

The Tango Company insignia.

6/7/23 – Day 35

  • CW S2E7
    • Clone Wars dives into the horror genre by introducing zombie Geonosians. 🧟‍♀️🧟🧟‍♂️

6/6/23 – Day 34

  • CW S2E6
    • Check out the book Stories of Jedi and Sith. It provides more perspective on Bariss and how the experiences of this episode will impact her overall trajectory.

6/5/23 – Day 33

  • CW S2E5
    • Landing at Point Rain is my favorite episode of season 2! It is like an old-time war movie.
Bad kitty! The nose art on the LAATs are an awesome detail in the clone wars. Here are two that I noticed.

6/4/23 – Day 32

  • CW S2E4
The flirting between Padmé and Senator Rush Clovis of Scipio is not subtle at all.

6/3/23 – Day 31

  • CW S2E3
    • Things get dark as the Jedi aggressively probe Cad Bane’s mind with the Force.
    • The planet Glee Anselm is mentioned. It was also mentioned by Tobias Beckett in the Solo movie.

    • A rough scene where Jedi Master Bolla Ropal is tortured to death! 😧

6/1/23 – Day 29

  • CW S2E1 – New month, new season of Clone Wars.
    • Anyone else think it’s really weird that the Jedi have a database of children? 🤨
TODO 360 is such a great droid!

5/31/23 – Day 28

  • CW S1E22
    • The Season 1 finale introduced Cad Bane, and he made a bloody splash with a high body count. He snaps a senate guard’s neck. He drops a grenade into a room of other senate guards. He shoots a senator in the back.
I just love the weird aliens like the Patrolian, Robonino.

5/30/23 -Day 27

  • CW S1E21
    • I was super confused by this. During the episode, they refer to the leader of the droid army on Ryloth as both Wat Tambor and Emir Tambor. “Emir,” I learned, is a title, not another person.
The AT-RTs are introduced. They move fast!

Another example of Mace Windu using his shatterpoint ability to break the glass to rescue the driver of the AT-TE.

5/29/23 – Day 26

  • CW S1E20
    • This episode focuses on Waxer and Boil of Ghost Company of the 212th Attack Battalion.
    • Nerra = brother in the Twi’lek language.
Boil had some choice facial hair.

The young Twi’lek girl Numa is represented later on Waxer’s helmet.

Today kicked off Star Wars Week on Wheel of Fortune!

5/28/23 – Day 25

  • CW S1E19
    • A significant character growth episode for Ahsoka.
    • I definitely noticed every time they play the Ahsoka theme song now.

5/27/23 – Day 24

  • CW S1E18
Anakin and Obi-Wan travel to Iego. There they meet an angel (Diathim). You might remember episode one where Anakin asks Padmé if she is an angel from Iego.

May 26, 2023 – Day 23

  • CW S1E17
Queen Neeyutnee is the ruler of the Naboo during the Clone Wars. The line of succession that we see in the Star Wars saga is: Amidala, Jamillia, Neeyutnee, Apailana.

The Grand Army of the Republic has a bomb squad. Officially, they are known as the Clone Ordinance Specialists.

The Separatist mad scientist Dr. Nuvo Vindi.

May 25, 2023 – Day 22

  • CW S1E16
    • People have said that Kenobi and Ventress are flirting in their interactions. I never noticed until the re-watch for this episode.

    • This is the first time we see a Twi’lek speaking with a French accent. 🇫🇷

We see that the Lurmen roll into balls to move across the terrain. In my head canon, this is the inspiration for the Droideka.

May 21, 2023 – Day 18

  • CW S1E12
The pirate Turk describes Hondo as “ Not being able to kill a numa.”
I did not notice Hondo’s logo in the previous episode, but it shows up in this episode.

May 20, 2023 – Day 17

A momentous day. I attended my first convention since 2021. Since I am in Michigan, I attended Motor City Comic Con. The main activity was chasing down autographs.

Christopher Lloyd as Commissioner Helgait.

Jason Isaac was super friendly and shared insights on role in Netflix’s The OA!

  • CW S1E11
First appearance of Hondo Ohnaka. I just love the colors on his Kowakian Monkey Lizard!

  • CW S1E4
    • General grievous greets Kenobi with a “Hello there!”
The Malevolence is so large it has several trains to move passengers from bow to stern quickly. You can hear the warning to “mind the gap.” Anakin and Padmé use one of the tunnels to sneak in some private time. 😘
One of Padmé’s many outfits. According to Hasbro, this is her Adventure Outfit.
