Kylo Ren’s design owes an obvious debt to the aesthetics of Darth Vader. But that’s not the only piece of film history that influenced his look and feel.
When I was a kid, my favorite movie in the world was 1985's Captain EO. Yes, the 17-minute Michael Jackson sci-fi fantasy played at the Disney theme parks, but it also made an appearance on TV. My parents recorded it on VHS for me, and I honestly wore out the tape rewatching it so many times. And if you loved the…

Buffy Summers has been slaying demons for the past 26 years. This fall, her story in Dark Horse Comics’ ongoing Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Twelve: The Reckoning series will come to an end. And then? Well, it’s going to get interesting
The future of Star Wars is very busy right now. Rumors have been swirling for months that Disney and Lucasfilm stopped production on some or all of the Star Wars Story spinoff films as they focus on the new franchises from Rian Johnson and the guys behind Game of Thrones. Lucasfilm insiders have denied this, but a …
In the wake of Disney cutting James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after controversial tweets of his were resurfaced by alt-right figures, the film’s tight-knit cast has been openly advocating for the studio to bring the director back. Long story short? Still not gonna happen.
For a movie that never actually got officially announced, it feels like we’ve been hearing about the prospect of a Star Wars spinoff film starring Ewan McGregor as the galaxy’s favorite Jedi-in-Exile, Obi-Wan Kenobi, forever. That’s mainly thanks to all the times people have peppered McGregor with questions about his…
Disney just announced production has begun on Niki Caro’s highly-anticipated live-action version of Mulan, and released the first photo of actress Liu Yifei as the title character. That’s her above, obviously, looking as fierce and badass as one would have hoped.
The final season of Star Wars Rebels was full of plot twists, but one looms larger than the others.
Among the people I know who grew up watching Kim Possible, news of Disney making a live-action movie has been somewhat controversial. The original, after all, so effectively alchemized so many elements that made it work way better than it had any right to.

Disney has just announced that Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, will be playing a character named Shank, a street racer in a tough online racing game, in Ralph Breaks the Internet. Considering her past with The…
What does Sony have planned for their Spider-Man film universe after the release of Venom? The answers may surprise you, because they sure surprised us.

A new report has brought some new twists and turns into the ongoing saga of James Gunn and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
I’ll admit, I was shocked at how much I loved the debut teaser trailer for Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. It was beautiful and weird and put Morgan Freeman in an eyepatch. The new trailer gives us a closer look at the plot, the world, and Keira Knightley’s weird-ass accent choice. It still seems…
Before Lucasfilm decided to make a whole movie out of stealing the plans for the first Death Star, there was a brief moment we could have seen that on TV.
Of all the Guardians of the Galaxy, Dave Bautista has been the most vocal in support of James Gunn following his firing from the Disney-Marvel film series. And now, he’s willing to make the ultimate sacrifice over the matter: give up his own job.
