Look at it.
So immediately upon re-opening up the mailbag last week, I got sick. Turns out maybe you shouldn’t leave a bag in an irradiated wasteland for a year and then immediately start sticking your hand in there. But no matter! This week: How to protect your budding nerd children, a Star Trek special effects dilemma, and the…
The Star Wars movies under Disney’s purview have ranged from excellent expansions to the franchise to perfectly fine—opinions may vary of course, but there hasn’t really been a generally poorly-received one. There has been quite a lot of them though, with even more on the way. But Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger says…
For many casual Star Wars fans, Darth Maul has spent the last decade-plus being the bad guy with the rad double lightsaber in The Phantom Menace. So when he showed up in Solo, it was the first time some had seen him in years. But for Sam Witwer, it was the chance to bring his animated take on Maul to the big screen.
I liked Solo. Others did not. And that divisive nature continues now that the film is available for home viewing. To celebrate the digital release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, co-writer Jon Kasdan took to Twitter to reveal 52 notes he had on the film. They offer a fascinating, yet problematic, view of the film.
So that’s what “having a mind of my own” meant.
One of my favorite moments in Solo: A Star Wars Story is when Han first experiences hyperspace. As Lando and L3 make the jump, the camera moves to the side of Han’s face and he’s just elated. We, the audience, are just as excited—we know where this character will go, and how important this moment is to him.
Star Wars novelizations have a long history of expanding on and enhancing the movies they adapt—whether through new material added to clarify moments in a film’s narrative unseen on screen, or to give us insight into earlier iterations of the final product. Mur Lafferty’s Solo novelization is no exception. Here are a…
Just when you think you’re out, the galaxy far, far away keeps pulling you right back in.
The major character cameo at the end of Solo is one of the most intriguing things to happen to the Star Wars film universe. Now, even if you missed the movie, you can watch the clip online.
Who wins: a multibillion-dollar film studio, or a YouTuber with a computer and the right tech?
From what we’ve seen so far, the next Star Wars animated series is steering away from the Force-fueled clashes that drove Clone Wars and Rebels, instead fitting itself into a post-Return of the Jedi world of spies, pilots, and ship crews. A new behind-the-scenes reel introduces us to a few of the stars of this…
A Time Lord is used to adventures in time and space—but a former Doctor could be paying a visit to the galaxy far, far away.
Solo: A Star Wars Story has much more intriguing connections to Star Wars’ recent past beyond just telling the tale of a younger Han Solo. But the upcoming novelization of the movie, just like other recent Star Wars adaptations, is adding more—including an intriguing wrinkle left unstated by the film.
From the Shire to a galaxy far, far away. The Lord of the Rings actor Dominic Monaghan is heading to Star Wars: Episode IX—reuniting with director J.J. Abrams, who he worked with on the ABC series Lost.
We all know about Han Solo as a character: smuggler, scoundrel, father of an evil son. But what about as a concept? Why did this character, more than almost every other character not just in Star Wars, but in pop culture as a whole, resonate so much with so many? A new book will try to figure it out.
Earlier this year, Star Wars: The Last Jedi actress Kelly Marie Tran suddenly logged off the internet in what appeared to be in response to an outpouring of racist, sexist trolls who felt the need to voice their distaste for her existence within one of the most popular franchises in the world. Today, the actress…
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.
All wings, report in! The next animated series set in the galaxy far, far away is just two months away: Lucasfilm and Disney have confirmed that Star Wars Resistance is taking flight October 7. And we’ve finally got our first look at the anime-inspired visuals of the next animated chapter in the Star Wars saga.
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 …
