When the fifth Indiana Jones movie, which is currently in development, hits movie screens, it will be without one not-so-beloved character. Shia LaBeouf’s Mutt Williams will not be returning.
Buried in the news of Michael K. Williams’s departure from the Han Solo movie was the possible name of Emilia Clarke’s character. And it’s a name we’ve heard a bunch of times in the Star Wars universe.
Ever since George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney for $4 billion, the Star Wars creator has been on the outside looking in. However, it seems that when he gets the chance, he still likes to make a suggestion or two.
Yesterday, EW broke the news that Benicio Del Toro’s Last Jedi character is a “slicer” that Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) are tracking down. Despite the fact that you may never have heard the word slicer in a Star Wars movie, they have a long and important history in that universe.
In his now-infamous meeting with Billy Dee Williams, Donald Glover threw out a huge number of ideas and thoughts about the character of Lando Calrissian. According to Glover, after he said all that, Williams looked at him and said, “Yeah, I don’t know about all that. Just be charming.”
The latest aliens to join the Star Wars family are a community of furry, bug-eyed creatures called porgs. Spotted in the behind-the-scenes promo at this year’s D23, they’re a furry cash-grab designed to add some levity to Luke and Rey’s intense training montages in The Last Jedi. And, dammit, they are throwing me for…
D23 is upon us this weekend, and with it, a new behind-the-scenes glimpse at the next chapter in the Star Wars saga. But although the movie didn’t offer us a full trailer, what we did get was still jam-packed with little hints and clues as to what’s to come for Luke, Leia, Rey, Finn, and Poe.
The firing of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from the Han Solo movie feels like it could be a turning point for the rejuvenated Star Wars. We’re learning a lot more about what Lucasfillm feels is acceptable within its universe and what isn’t. The problem is that what’s acceptable looks to be very, very narrow.
The fallout from Chris Miller and Phil Lord’s shocking exit from the Han Solo film a week ago continues, with more and more details about the rift emerging day by day. One new report even claims that Lucasfilm weren’t just unhappy with Miller and Lord’s approach: they were concerned about the performance they were…
Just days after the shocking news of Chris Miller and Phil Lord’s departure from the Han Solo spinoff movie, it seems like a decision has been made on who’s coming in to replace them. And it’s pretty much the one director everyone thought it was going to be.
Even before co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from the Han Solo movie, they didn’t talk about the film in public a lot. One place they did was at last year’s Star Wars Celebration, and reading the quotes now is very weird.
Let’s face it: If any of us were doing a promo video for Star Wars’ “Force For Change” charity drive and Mark Hamill showed up to deliver some of Luke Skywalker’s most famous lines, this is exactly how we’d react, too.
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.
We finally have real footage from Episode VIII, and as mysterious as it is, there are a number of details hidden in there that give us some clues as to what’s in store for Rey, Finn, Poe, and the rest when The Last Jedi arrives this December—and we’ve broken it all down for you, frame-by-frame.
It’s here. After months and months of waiting, the next chapter in the Star Wars saga is upon us, and we finally have our very first look at Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And it’s just as amazing as you were hoping it would be.
Thrawn is a great Star Wars book that stands on its own. But the little nods and winks Timothy Zahn makes to Thrawn’s old life in the Expanded Universe novels—and to the events in Rebels, where Thrawn is currently the main antagonist—add another layer of delight. You should definitely read Thrawn (and watch Rebels),…
Hello, and welcome to a completely biased review of Thrawn, the latest Star Wars book to fit into the space between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Rebels. There are no spoilers here, so feel free to relax. Only don’t, because I am so happy to have author Timothy Zahn’s voice back in Star Wars, I could cry.
Following in a grand tradition for Star Wars books, Del Rey, Lucasfilm, and Disney have announced a new 40-story anthology which will explore the stories of background characters from A New Hope.
We know there were a lot of changes made to Rogue One, be that in the script phase, the shooting phase, or the edit phase. That means a pile of stuff ended up not making the final cut. The movie is finally out on DVD and Blu-ray this week, but there were no additional scenes there. So we’ve assembled every bit of…
