“Every story has a beginning...” or so the Star Wars: Episode I: the Phantom Menace tagline goes. So it makes sense that while Marvel has its ongoing adaptation of Rogue One in the works, this summer it’s also going to reveal how the partnership of Rebel officer Cassian Andor and ex-Imperial droid K-2SO came to be in…
Salutations, my pensive postage meters. In honor of Prometheus 2: The Search for Michael Fassbender’s Severed Head’s Gold, I bring you an answer to the biggest mystery in the Alien universe. Plus, the best Game of Thrones episode, the age conundrums of both Gotham and the Star Wars prequels, and... (dun dun dunh) I…
The Jedi Order’s supreme asskicker is coming to comics. Marvel has just announced Mace Windu will star in his own comic miniseries, set just after the outbreak of the Clone Wars—and we should probably expect some awesome action to boot.
With the 40th anniversary of Star Wars coming next week, everyone is going to celebrate in their own special way. However, one theater in Los Angeles might have everyone else beat with the weirdest collection of footage this side of the Outer Rim.
A Japanese ad for Star Wars: The Last Jedi makes a very intriguing claim—it says the film will include the biggest, most shocking reveal in Star Wars history. The obvious answer is that this will be the discovery of Rey’s origin, but we got to thinking... what if it isn’t?
On the one hand, whiny, squealing newborn infants being named after whiny, squealing wannabe Sith Lord Kylo Ren is an oddly appropriate legacy for the character. On the other, whyyyyyy?
Hair alert! io9 is back with all your breaking pop culture hair news, this time concerning our brand new Han Solo.
Greetings, my garrulous guttersnipes! (I feel like I’m turning into a Batman ‘66 villain here.) This week: Those Game of Thrones spin-off series! How to improve the Iron Fist TV show’s story! Whether Stormtroopers get paid! And a question so weird, I couldn’t stop answering it! (You’ll know it when you see it.)
Marvel’s Star Wars and Dr. Aphra comics kicked off a new crossover event this week, Screaming Citadel, and it’s a realization of something the comics have been doing for a while, quite unlike any other aspect of Lucasfilm’s new Star Wars comic: it’s digging into some really weird corners of the galaxy far, far away.
For decades, Star Wars has been treated as a series for boys—but ever since 1977, girls and women all over the world have loved the saga too. A new documentary plans to speak to those female fans to see what inspired their relationship with the galaxy far, far, away, and the heartwarming trailer is worth a watch.
Oh, Luke, telling the world the Jedi are finished doesn’t feel quite as dramatic when it’s via text bubble. With both Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Battlefront II on the horizon, one fan has started the 8-bit (technically 16-bit) parody trailer wagon rolling... and he’s got the approval of TLJ’s director himself.
The Empire Strikes Back is one of the gold standards filmmakers aspire to when making a sequel. And though both Chris Pratt and Kevin Feige swear it was never mentioned during the making of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the films share a lot of similarities. A lot of similarities.
The original Star Tours has a place in the heart of many Star Wars fans—although following its revamp back in 2011, it’s now impossible to experience Disney’s first foray into the world of Star Wars rides in person. At least this amazing fan-made project lets you rekindle a few of those memories.
Yesterday may have been May the Fourth, but the Star Wars deals seem to be like Sandpeople, walking single file to hide their numbers. Amazon has a ton of Star Wars toys and board games marked down, and you don’t need to be Force-sensitive to see that these prices aren’t ones to pass up.
So today is May 4th, which is Star Wars Day, which is nice because Star Wars doesn’t get much attention. So, in honor of this important day, I want to address something that’s been gnawing at me for years. A strange detail, an obvious mistake hidden in plain sight for years and years, mocking me. Something that makes…
If you are a popular athlete, have been attractive for most of your life or had a girlfriend in high school, then you probably don’t know that May 4 is Star Wars Day. Star Wars is the seminal piece of work in the nerd universe, and single-handedly created the serial Hollywood science fiction blockbuster.
Here are some tweets, ranked bad to most bad:
When Rey leaves Leia and the Resistance to go find Luke Skywalker, she brings two friends with her: Chewbacca and R2-D2. However, that wasn’t originally the case.
You’ve no doubt seen countless lists of the best video games set in the Star Wars universe today. Boring. I’d like to try something a little different, and tell you what the best Star Wars video game is.
You can blame Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show for all those “lol you’ve gotta watch this!” emails from your mom that you constantly have to delete. But we begrudgingly have to admit that aliens, Jedis, droids, and Sith singing Smash Mouth’s “All Star” is shockingly well done.
