The latest aliens to join the Star Wars family are a community of furry, bug-eyed creatures called porgs. Spotted in the behind-the-scenes promo at this year’s D23, they’re a furry cash-grab designed to add some levity to Luke and Rey’s intense training montages in The Last Jedi. And, dammit, they are throwing me for…
D23 is upon us this weekend, and with it, a new behind-the-scenes glimpse at the next chapter in the Star Wars saga. But although the movie didn’t offer us a full trailer, what we did get was still jam-packed with little hints and clues as to what’s to come for Luke, Leia, Rey, Finn, and Poe.
The firing of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from the Han Solo movie feels like it could be a turning point for the rejuvenated Star Wars. We’re learning a lot more about what Lucasfillm feels is acceptable within its universe and what isn’t. The problem is that what’s acceptable looks to be very, very narrow.
The fallout from Chris Miller and Phil Lord’s shocking exit from the Han Solo film a week ago continues, with more and more details about the rift emerging day by day. One new report even claims that Lucasfilm weren’t just unhappy with Miller and Lord’s approach: they were concerned about the performance they were…
Just days after the shocking news of Chris Miller and Phil Lord’s departure from the Han Solo spinoff movie, it seems like a decision has been made on who’s coming in to replace them. And it’s pretty much the one director everyone thought it was going to be.
Even before co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from the Han Solo movie, they didn’t talk about the film in public a lot. One place they did was at last year’s Star Wars Celebration, and reading the quotes now is very weird.
Let’s face it: If any of us were doing a promo video for Star Wars’ “Force For Change” charity drive and Mark Hamill showed up to deliver some of Luke Skywalker’s most famous lines, this is exactly how we’d react, too.
Last month, a poorly worded turn of phrase from Disney CEO Bob Iger set Star Wars fans ablaze, worried that the Han Solo spinoff movie would be about the young smuggler “getting his name.” The internet panicked wildly that Han Solo’s real name suddenly wasn’t Han Solo. Everyone can calm the hell down now.
We finally have real footage from Episode VIII, and as mysterious as it is, there are a number of details hidden in there that give us some clues as to what’s in store for Rey, Finn, Poe, and the rest when The Last Jedi arrives this December—and we’ve broken it all down for you, frame-by-frame.
It’s here. After months and months of waiting, the next chapter in the Star Wars saga is upon us, and we finally have our very first look at Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And it’s just as amazing as you were hoping it would be.
Thrawn is a great Star Wars book that stands on its own. But the little nods and winks Timothy Zahn makes to Thrawn’s old life in the Expanded Universe novels—and to the events in Rebels, where Thrawn is currently the main antagonist—add another layer of delight. You should definitely read Thrawn (and watch Rebels),…
Hello, and welcome to a completely biased review of Thrawn, the latest Star Wars book to fit into the space between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Rebels. There are no spoilers here, so feel free to relax. Only don’t, because I am so happy to have author Timothy Zahn’s voice back in Star Wars, I could cry.
Following in a grand tradition for Star Wars books, Del Rey, Lucasfilm, and Disney have announced a new 40-story anthology which will explore the stories of background characters from A New Hope.
We know there were a lot of changes made to Rogue One, be that in the script phase, the shooting phase, or the edit phase. That means a pile of stuff ended up not making the final cut. The movie is finally out on DVD and Blu-ray this week, but there were no additional scenes there. So we’ve assembled every bit of…
Mads Mikkelsen stepped into the hugely important role of Galen Erso, the man who made the Death Star work. The actor also had the equally Herculean task of keeping all the details about his character secret. Now that Rogue One’s out on Digital HD, we talked to Mikkelsen about all those details—and also about how some…
The only thing certain about the future of Star Wars is that there is one. After Episode IX in 2019, Disney hasn’t announced what plans are beyond that. But there will be more and the CEO just said the company has again begun to discuss what the future will hold.
There’s nothing at first glance that would tell you why Lucasfilm refused to release this behind-the-scenes photo from A New Hope. But once you hear it, and put it together with George Lucas’ need to control details, it makes total sense.
The Star Wars canon changed forever Saturday night with the latest episode of Star Wars Rebels, “Twin Suns.” It was a massive episode in terms of character, Star Wars history, and precedent. So we simply had to talk to Dave Filoni, the executive producer of Rebels, to get the scoop on the Obi-Wan Kenobi/Darth Maul…
One of the biggest highlights of Rogue One—maybe the biggest—is when the Dark Lord of the Sith boards the doomed Rebel ship that’s trying to get the Death Star plans to Princess Leia’s Tantive IV. But it turns out the scene was conceived at practically the last minute.
I’m not saying Frank Oz is definitely playing Yoda in Star Wars: Episode VIII, but I am saying it’s telling that he apparently can’t just say “no” when asked about it
