Mando Spotlight: Crusaders & Neo-Crusaders

Welcome to another edition of Mando Spotlight, where I discuss a part of Mandalorian lore from the official Star Wars canon. This week, I will be talking about the Mandalorian Crusaders and Neo-Crusaders. I will admit, this will be a short article, since not much information has been released on the Crusaders and Neo-Crusaders. They are canon, though, and that's the important thing to take away from this. Who are the Crusaders? At this point, not much is known other than the fact they are a faction of Mandalorian warriors (or super commandos) that fought against the Jedi during the days of the Old Republic. The Crusaders would become major influences for the Mandalorian terrorist group known

10 Favorite Star Wars Scores

In today's Guru 10, I will share with you my current ten favorite John Williams scores from Star Wars Episodic films. This list isn't a ranking and will cover the scores from STAR WARS EPISODES I-VIII. 1. Victory Celebration (Return of the Jedi) I absolutely love the Special Editions, and "Victory Celebration" is one of my favorite changes to Episode VI. This song is festive and makes a warm fuzzy feeling in your heart, unless you're a Sith. 2. Grievous Speaks to Lord Sidious (Revenge of the Sith) One of my favorite scores, from the best Star Wars film, is the track playing when Grievous lands on Utapau and speaks with Darth Sidious. The song is menacing and fits a character such as General
