Everything in the universe points towards J.J. Abrams and Disney releasing a second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens fairly soon. Most likely it’ll be at Star Wars Celebration for a legion of fans, then online in the week before Avengers: Age of Ultron. The first trailer, which basically only contained seven shots, was viewed hundreds of millions of times around the world and spawned infinite speculation and visual reference. A new trailer with even more footage and information would probably exceed that.
As the wait continues, a rumored description has now come online. It features new characters, old characters (yes, Luke Han and Leia are in this description), new planets, the full reveal of Kylo Ren’s face and much more. Is this what happens in The Force Awakens trailer 2? Read for yourself and discuss after the jump. Read More »

The new Steven Spielberg film, which reunites the director with star Tom Hanks, was referred to early on as the “Untitled Cold War Thriller,” and then shot under the title St. James Place. But when released in theaters, the movie will be called Bridge of Spies — a more colorful title, to be sure, and one which has its own place in cold war history.
Additionally, John Williams has been confirmed to provide the score for the film, marking the latest collaboration in his long-running partnership with Spielberg. Read More »

The first season of Star Wars Rebels is now in the books. The Star Wars history books, that is. Rebels was the first new piece of Star Wars content created after Disney bought the company in 2012. That in itself is pretty significant. Beyond that, the show was the first piece of official canon story linking what happened between the Original Trilogy and the Prequel Trilogy.
I know what you’re thinking. “Weren’t there numerous books and comics that told stories in that time frame?” Yes, but those never counted. Plus, but when Disney took over they wiped the Star Wars canon clean. The only things that officially happened in the new Star Wars canon are the six movies, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. Any new content they release – books, comics, movies, etc. will all become official parts of the story, too.
So what does that mean? It means that what happened over the course of Star Wars Rebels season one matters. A lot. The actions of the characters and events that unfolded all have a real bearing on Star Wars as a whole. Those events have changed Star Wars history in some minor, and even some major ways. Ideally, you’d just watch all the episodes and see what I mean for yourself. Another option is to continue reading and find out how the Star Wars Rebels canon additions changed Star Wars history forever. Read More »
