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
At the pace it’s been going lately, it’s hard not to feel like Rebels has been heading toward its conclusion. We’re getting closer and closer to A New Hope in the show’s timeline—but there’s still more stories to tell before Rebels ends, it seems, as Disney and Lucasfilm have just confirmed a fourth season of the show.
Lucasfilm has applied for a trademark on “Star Wars: Rivals.” Here’s what we know: next to nothing.
Following on the heels of revealing Rey’s new hair on an empty box, another Star Wars: Episode VIII mystery has been answered—namely, whether The Last Jedi refers to a single Jedi or a group of Jedi, since both the singular and the plural form are “Jedi.” The solution comes to us via the release of several…
After the passing of Kenny Baker last year, you’d be forgiven for assuming that Lucasfilm and Disney would go the all-robot (or part-robot-part-CGI) route for the rest of R2-D2’s movies appearances. Instead, the role has gone to Jimmy Vee (Doctor Who).
A new rumor about the latest casting for the Han Solo spinoff is dropping some major hints about another member of the primary cast of the film, beyond Han himself, Chewie, and Lando. If it ends up being what we think it is, the character could be a pretty interesting first for a Star Wars movie.
Billy Dee Williams created Lando, and although Donald Glover has been cast as the character in the standalone Han Solo film, Williams says he never thought of what it would be like for someone else to be Lando. And, you know what? That is more than fair.
