The fourth and final season of Star Wars Rebels kicks off today with “Heroes of Mandalore,” a two-part episode. The story follows Sabine Wren on a daring adventure to destroy a weapon that could wipe out all of her people. Basically, it’s the kind of big-stakes, big-action stuff we expect from Star Wars.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's weekly round up of all the fabulous new toys just waiting to drain our wallets of their precious monetary fluids. This week, Hot Toys tackles The Last Jedi’s most important characters, plus a patriotically posable Captain America, and even stranger Stranger Things board games.
Some of our favorite science fiction and fantasy franchises are defined by the weapons in them. Star Wars has its lightsabers. Zelda’s Link has his Master Sword. These are the touchstones of each property, and artist Matt Ritchie is reimagining them all in a beautiful, colorful new way.

The porg is easily the most controversial new character in the Star Wars universe. You either love it or hate it, but either way, everyone wants to make photoshops of this strange little creature. And Gizmodo readers delivered.
Once upon a time, a new Star Wars movie was coming out and everyone was excited. Not only was it a return to a beloved franchise, but it also featured a new adorable mascot! Some initially dismissed it as the next Ewok, but eventually the world fell in love. But now, that mascot, our beloved BB-8, has been replaced.…
Porgs. You haven’t even seen them in a movie yet but you probably already have a strong opinion on them. Such is the nature of fandom these days—especially in Star Wars, where there’s certainly some negative precedent of cute characters impacting the movies.
Last night we got a glorious Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, packed with new looks at the war to come between the Resistance and the First Order. As ever for modern Star Wars, it’s a trailer that’s as cryptic as it is epic in scope, but it’s also filled with new hints and secrets about what to expect.
The world has seen mere seconds of Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s porgs, but already they’re a divisive character. Some people love them, others hate them. But no matter where you stand, everybody wants to photoshop them.
The new trailer for The Last Jedi dropped last night. And it’s all some Star Wars nerds are talking about. But it’s clear that one character stole the show. That’s right. It’s porg time, baby.
Breathe. Just... breathe. The second trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally here.
A few hours before the release of the second trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the new poster has been revealed.
We’ve got two months, and the wait from now until the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be nothing but anxious anticipation. While we’re waiting for Rey to receive her Force training, it’s a good time to revisit one of the best training sequences in the franchise.
This is no surprise, because Dawson’s music of choice for accompanying the Phasma novel is a heady mix of Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars. What’s not to love about that?
At the Lucasfilm Publishing panel at New York Comic Con, Timothy Zahn announced that the sequel to his bestselling Thrawn novel will arrive next summer and will be called Thrawn: Alliances. Also, a certain Dark Lord of the Sith will be stopping by.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's regular weekly roundup of all the toys you’ll want to blow your paycheck on, instead of buying groceries, paying rent, or other more responsible purchases.

From a Certain Point of View, the new Star Wars anthology novel released to celebrate 40 years of the beloved franchise, is unlike any other book we’ve seen so far in Disney’s Star Wars canon. It’s all about the little details rather than the major events of the movies—but that doesn’t there aren’t a few interesting…
