The thought of Luke Skywalker exiling himself to an unknown planet before the events of The Force Awakens imagined many to believe he would become the Yoda of the new Star Wars trilogy. Hell, there was fan art and everything! But it turns out that more tragic reasons make Luke’s role in The Last Jedi more like that…
Part of what made Han Solo’s demise in The Force Awakens so upsetting is that he didn’t get one last moment with his dear friend Luke before he died. But Mark Hamill apparently wanted Han’s death to play out slightly differently—in such a way that would’ve probably had us crying even more.
Star Wars Celebration gets under way in Florida next week, and with it comes countless exclusives that only attendees will be able to snatch up and sell on eBay afterwards. But Lego’s special edition Celebration set could be the hardest one to get your hands on since it will only be available to attendees lucky enough…
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.
There’s still no trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi but Disney Shareholders got to see the first public footage anywhere on Wednesday and, in it, Luke Skywalker finally spoke.
We know that Luke and Rey will be spending time together in Star Wars Episode VIII. And we can only hope it proves the fan theory that Luke really only knows how to train a Jedi the same way he was trained.
Sure, Star Wars fans might dream of igniting a lightsaber and calling on the force like a Jedi. But honestly, if we were in a galaxy far far away, we’d want to lock our S-Foils in attack position like the dashing X-Wing pilots of the Alliance and Republic. But who’s the best of them all? We ranked them to find out.
We’re at peak pre-new Star Wars hype right now, and I’m not immune. I bought my 5-year old a can of Spaghettios because it had a picture of R2-D2 on it, and I was glad to do it. What’s happening to me? I’m okay with it, but there are no cars in the movies, which is an issue for me. Luckily, there’s landspeeders, which…
Some Star Wars collectors only hunt down the figures for characters they like, while others strictly go after the rare finds. But for those who consider themselves completists, and want the action figure for every last character in their collection, Luke’s severed hand is finally up for grabs.
Proving you don’t need a supermodel to sell beauty products, Flickr’s Marc Mater has created this brilliant (but fake) L’Oréal ad showing how the company’s products can even tame hair ravaged by the dry deserts of Tatooine.
The first trailer for The Force Awakens announced to the world there was a brand new Star Wars villain. We then learned his name: Kylo Ren, owner of the ominous, hilted red lightsaber. A second trailer followed, and immediately we were greeted by the face of Darth Vader. The obvious question was, “Why?”
I wish I had something clever or profound to say about the first photo of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker taken in 30 years, or about it being the first time we’ve ever seen Luke wearing traditional Jedi robes. But I don’t. My stomach is full of tiny Star Wars-obsessed butterflies and I’m just really, really happy right…
Now that Hot Toys are done turning as many Avengers as they can into gloriously pretty (and expensive) action figures, it’s time for them to return to Star Wars and do pretty much the same thing — and they’re back with a pretty great recreation of everyone’s favourite farmboy.
We already knew that Bandai would be bringing a windswept Jedi Luke to their Star Wars line later this year, but now they've released a batch of new pictures and information about the figure, giving us a better look at its... well, let's just say not great likeness.
It's not often you get to see an action figure that boasts 'Looks just like that poster!', but Bandai's latest Star Wars figuarts can claim such a thing. Looking good, Mr. Skywalker!
Mark Hamill appeared yesterday at the Golden Heart Gala in Los Angeles sporting a full beard and long hair. Since they are filming now, I think it's safe to say that this is how he looks on the new Star Wars Episode VII by J.J. Abrams. So I photoshopped his face on top of Obi Wan to get Master Skywalker.
The once and future Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill, is also a crazy talented voice actor best known as the Joker in many Batman cartoons. At a recent Star Wars Weekend, some brave, wonderful person asked Mr. Hamill to narrate a meeting between the Jedi Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime.
With the cast of Episode VII finally revealed, I have to admit, I am getting pretty freaking excited about a new chapter of Star Wars blasting its way into contemporary pop culture. In honor of Star Wars Day, let's relive your best Star Wars moment from your childhood—or your adulthood!
