In The Force Awakens, we learned Leia Organa had spent the 30 years since Return of the Jedi kicking ass and taking names as the head of the Resistance. But even though it’s been over two years since the movie, the mighty General has yet to get an action figure of her awesome, elder self. Hasbro’s finally decided to…
When you go to a massive convention like Star Wars Celebration, it’s best to have a game plan. Where are you going to go first? What panels are you going to prioritize, and which merchandise do you want to make sure you don’t miss? Well, this little Jyn cosplayer had a different mission: deliver the Death Star plans…
Late last night, Lucasfilm and Disney announced Forces of Destiny, a new animated series/merchandise line focusing on the female heroes of the Star Wars galaxy. The idea of new stories with these characters was already fascinating, but now that we know even more about the series, we can’t wait until it arrives.
Today, Star Wars Celebration kicked off in Orlando—but one very special member of the Star Wars cast, the dearly missed Carrie Fisher, could not be there to stand alongside her fellow actors. Instead, we have this beautiful tribute to a mother, a princess, a general, and a hero beloved by all.
Ingvild Deila had one of the most important roles in Rogue One, but you’ve probably never heard of her. The Norwegian actress was the person on set whose face was turned into the young Carrie Fisher’s for the film’s climactic scene. While most Star Wars actors aren’t allowed to say much about the films, Deila was…
We all loved Carrie Fisher. And while Carrie Fisher may not have loved each and every one of us back, she definitely loved her dog. That’s why Mondo is taking 10 percent of sales for its new Princess Leia portrait and donating it to animal welfare causes.
The Women’s March on Washington has a true queen in their camp. Crowds are channeling General Leia Organa and actress Carrie Fisher with signs, costumes, wall art, and other amazing tributes. The Rebellion is here.
Update: In a rare move, StarWars.com posted the following statement denying the allegations reported in this story:
By now, we’ve talked our heads off about the ILM recreations of 1977 Peter Cushing and Carrie Fisher in Rogue One. We’ve talked ethics, quality, and even the process. The last piece is to simply watch how it was done, and now you can.
The death of Carrie Fisher this week has touched the hearts of millions across the world—fans of her writing, fans of her tireless advocacy for mental health, and of course, fans of her role as the beloved Leia Organa in Star Wars. While we’ve shared many tributes to her passing already, this is perhaps one of the…
The sad reality of any celebrity passing is that we have to ask how their death will impact any ongoing work in the future. In the case of Carrie Fisher, that means the continuing Star Wars saga, Episodes VIII and IX.
Almost two weeks since the release of the latest Star Wars film, Rogue One, but much of the talk surrounding the movie is about characters from 40 years ago. Now, in an interview with The New York Times, several of Rogue One’s most prominent contributors have given their accounts of the film’s controversial decisions.
With the opening weekend of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story finally behind us, there are a great many things to talk about. On the internet, though, one conversation has seemingly risen above them all: the movie’s CG characters.
The big news from The Princess Diarist, understandably, has been author Carrie Fisher’s admission that she and Harrison Ford were hooking up while filming Star Wars (Episode IV as it’s now called, a rechristening she endlessly mocks).
Did you know Harrison Ford wore digital hair extensions in The Force Awakens? Well, that’s just one of the awesome tidbits J.J. Abrams gives up during an illuminating director’s commentary that’ll be available November 15 on the film’s 3D Blu-ray release.
Election mania is sweeping the U.S., and not even fictitious politicians can escape the vicious cycle of attack ads.
Even with all the books and comics out there right now, Disney’s new Star Wars canon is still in its earliest days, especially when it comes to the time period between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. However, Claudia Gray’s new Leia-centric novel Bloodline, out this week, uncovers that mysterious era in some…
We’ve known for a while that Claudia Gray’s new Leia-starring novel Star Wars: Bloodlines would be uncovering some important backstory about Leia’s soured relationship with the Republic in The Force Awakens. But now we know it’s tackling another huge mystery from the movie: Just how were the First Order and Resistance…
Hasbro’s Star Wars line has been in for some rough attention recently as fans clamored for, and then struggled to find, toys based on Rey after The Force Awakens came out, citing the company’s long struggle with female characters in its Star Wars toys. You wouldn’t think that with their Toy Fair announcements.
