An Open Letter to Star Wars Fans — A Guest Post by Kenny Kraly, Jr.


Hello Star Wars Fans and Coffee With Kenobi listeners and bloggers!

One of the things that has changed over the years is how we get our news about that galaxy far, far away. Back in the original trilogy era, from 1977 up to 1985, we got our Star Wars news from the local newspaper, maybe an ad for the films on TV, and maybe a news story on Star Wars from your local news station. When the special edition and prequel era came in, from 1997-1999, it was pretty much the same — but the internet was in its early days, with and online message boards, and it was the early days for fan websites like

StarWarsTheForceAwakensFeat Now it’s 2015 and again we are in a new era of Star Wars with the sequel trilogy and the anthology films coming, and with that comes new ways to get Star Wars news like fan websites, podcasts like Coffee With Kenobi, social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.

But with more ways to get news there is a down side with sites having some misinformation and the mainstream media trying to twist and turn some stories about Star Wars around and rumors flying around about the new films. Just try to avoid the rogue-one-logo sites that have some misinformation and only follow the news about Star Wars from trusted sites such as,, reliable Star Wars fan websites, and Star Wars podcasts like Coffee With Kenobi because they will make sure there is no misinformation reported on Star Wars.

This is an exciting time for Star Wars fans, but also be careful of which sites report Star Wars News.

Thanks for reading and MTFBWY, always!!!! — Kenny Kraly, Jr

    […] Star Wars fans don’t have to look any further than the large Star Wars discussion boards online.’s Jedi Council is probably the biggest, and spend any time in The Force Awakens spoiler board and you can see this brewing. When people read the real spoilers (of what was actually shot in the movie) they reject it and hatch elaborate “misinformation” theories that then spread to other sites who tell their readers to avoid the sites posting “misinformation”.

    I’m right there with you, Kenny! I do NOT visit any sites other than and CWK for my Star Wars news. Never ever! 🙂 is the OFFICIAL site for everything Star Wars, and while the folks who run it/work there might hold back certain information, I know the news coming from is straight from the horse’s mouth (so to speak 😉 ). As far as CWK is concerned, I have been good friends with the founders/moderator for years, and trust them implicitly.

    Quite frankly, my stance has been — since the announcement there would be a new trilogy (and even a few stand-alone films) — I want to walk into the theater in December with the same delight I did when the OT came out, even when the PT came out (I even avoided reading the articles about TPM, AOTC and ROTS that were in the “Insider” leading up to those films’ release!). Later this year, I may even decide to wear noise-canceling headphones to the theater because I know I’ll be standing in line for quite a while (I’m still shaking my head at Disney’s decision to release TFA in December. Are they unaware that most of the country will be experiencing WINTER come December??? 😉 ), and don’t want to overhear comments to which I’d rather not be privy. 😉 Some might consider that going a bit too far. Maybe it won’t be going far enough. lol

    Turn a deaf ear to those who want to spoil the fun. 🙂 That’s what I do. 🙂

    MTFBWY 🙂
