No matter where you fall when it comes to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, it’s fairly likely you enjoyed the film’s power couple, Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus. They brought a great energy, humor, and gravitas to the film, two of which you also get from this amazing poster.
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…
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's roundup of the most interesting toys we’ve seen this week. It’s a Guardians of the Galaxy blowout as we’ve got life-sized Groots, creepy plush Groots, and a fancy cassette player. But wait—there’s more, including a very swanky David Bowie figure and a very large Iron Man. Check it out!
Salutations, my self-adhesive envelopes. Sorry “Postal Apocalypse” is a day late; I’d explain why, but I, uh... swore an oath to a wizard. Or something. Look, it’s been a long week. A long week that ends with answers: How Marvel could have connected its movies and TV series way better! Who’s worse at time travel than…
If you’re planning to build your own lightsaber, droid, or time-traveling DeLorean replica, the first place you need to visit is the Replica Prop Forum. It’s the online hangout for builders to share tips and photos of their creations. It’s also where you’ll find Darren Moser detailing his build of a life-size K-2SO…
Pat yourself on the back. You were right! Kylo Ren’s scar in The Force Awakens does not match the scar in The Last Jedi. Writer-director Rian Johnson has just admitted it, and explained why he broke all of Star Wars’ renown verisimilitude for this small but ultimately fatal change.
The Star Wars saga is as much a fairy tale as The Three Little Pigs or The Princess and the Pea—just with way cooler spaceships and characters. So the iconic Little Golden Books have a few more Star Wars titles en route that will help kids obsess and pore over every last detail from the films.
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.
Composer Michael Giacchino joined Rogue One very late in the game—to the point he allegedly had just four weeks to create his soundtrack for the film. The fact he even managed it was impressive, but as this video shows, Giacchino pulled off a soundtrack filled with intriguing cues and homages to the Star Wars work of…
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.
Hasbro’s Star Wars Celebration panel debuted some of the new figures for 2017 and 2018, including a brand-new Thrawn and a surprising fan poll winner from the Expanded Universe. However, the biggest and coolest news has to be the return of the beloved Vintage Collection.

When Star Wars themed lands open at Walt Disney World and Disneyland in 2019, things are going to be interactive. Maybe, a little too interactive.
We saw a brief glimpse in the first trailer for The Last Jedi and soon, you’ll be able to visit there yourself.
Star Wars Celebration, being the galaxy-engulfing behemoth that it is, has had its share of hyped reveals and trailers this year. But there have also been some genuinely cool little moments. I’d definitely call this one of them.
Star Wars Battlefront II will give players a totally new Star Wars experience. And, this time, it’s going to count.
By now we’ve talked about the Star Wars Rebels references in Rogue One until we are blue in the face. And, in this case, that pun is intended.

Even after today’s trailer drop, we still don’t know much about The Last Jedi. We know even less about Episode IX. But one rumor about that yet-to-be-titled film has been shot down: the late Carrie Fisher will not appear in it.
The last time we saw the spectacularly armored Captain Phasma, she was about to be shoved into a trash compacter at the end of The Force Awakens. And while we’ve known for awhile that one of Star Wars’ best villains-you-love-to-hate would be back, now we’re gonna find out how she escaped.
