An Uprising In The Casino – CCC Ep. 022

Nathan P. Butler joins us back in the Casino to discuss The Star Wars Uprising mobile game as well as dive deeper into the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront.



That’s right it’s more fun and antics as Michael, Bruce, and Nathan take a detailed look into the story, game mechanics, and direction of the new Star Wars Uprising mobile game. After that we move on to Battlefront and everything that has been released about it so far from game modes to downloadable content.


Mirror Images: Reflections from the Saga in The Force Awakens Trailer

NOTE: Possible spoilers for The Force Awakens based on speculation and deduction from the trailers and other official sources. Spoilers at the end for the junior novel The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure.

In my previous article, Exposing the Hidden Clues in The Force Awakens Trailer, I compared some shots in the new trailer to moments from the original trilogy. There are, in fact, many comparisons to be made between much of the official information released for The Force Awakens and the entire Star Wars saga. I have left some similarities I have noticed out of this article for length considerations, and I’m sure I have missed some. The article will include virtually identical shots, shots reminiscent in theme, and inversions of themes. Some of these are rather clear and some are subjective and simply struck a chord in my imagination. Please feel free to add to the list.

In the new trailer, we see that Rey, like Luke and Anakin before her, has a desire to leave her desert home in search of a better, more adventurous life. Note that Anakin is the most optimistic of the three.

Exposing the Hidden Clues in The Force Awakens Trailer

NOTE: Possible spoilers for a segment of The Force Awakens based on speculation and deduction from the trailers and other official sources.


When Star Wars fans around the world gathered to view the final trailer for The Force Awakens, we, in grand tradition, soaked in each frame, trying to discern as much as we could about the highly anticipated film. After the awe of that initial viewing, many of us went back over the trailer frame-by-frame, analyzing each shot over and over and speculating on their potential meaning to the plot of the film.

That night on Twitter, Bethany Blanton, Co-Founder of The Star Wars Report, posted a still from the trailer featuring our heroes approaching a large stone building adorned with multiple banners. Above the entrance of this building was a design that Bethany thought resembled a Stormtrooper helmet. I tweeted back that I thought it looked like the mask of Darth Vader. In all likelihood, it is probably neither, but wild imaginations are part of the fun of fandom.


However, there was something else familiar about this design that puzzled me. At first I thought it might be an existing symbol within the Star Wars universe. Several of us had already spotted what turned out to be two logos associated with the Mandalorians and Boba Fett among the designs on the numerous flags.


After some minutes searching in vain online, it finally hit me. I had seen that same design in a previous The Force Awakens picture. That picture was in the Force Awakens issue of Vanity Fair and featured the menacing Captain Phasma standing among the charred ruins of a stone structure. The caption read: “First Order officer Captain Phasma… surveys the rubble following an attack.” I then realized that it was the same building.
