Just recently, Ben Sherwood, the President of Disney-ABC Television Group broke the hearts of Star Wars fans by saying that there were no plans to get a live-action Star Wars series off the ground.

We’re a little over a month away from the release of Doctor Strange, and while there are undoubtedly plenty of fans who are excited to see what Marvel Studios has to offer with their latest installment to the Marvel cinematic universe, it feels like the hype isn’t where it should be. I’m not sure if Doctor Strange is too obscure or mystical for fans to latch onto him, but the excitement just doesn’t seem to be there. Hopefully I’m wrong.
In an effort to get the hype machine cranked up a bit, Marvel has released a batch of new Doctor Strange TV spots. There’s a lot of footage shared between them, but there are some glimpses of new footage dispersed between what we’ve already seen. Watch them all below! Read More »
Despite the fact that most of The Avengers went head-to-head in Captain America: Civil War, not one of them died. Sure, War Machine (aka James Rhodes) walked away with a bit of a physical impairment, but that’s about as bad as it got for our heroes. However, directors Anthony & Joe Russo confirm that they once talked about killing off various characters in the sequel, including Captain America himself.

Premium Bandai over in Japan has an incredible new desk organizer in the form of an AT-AT.

The third season premiere of Star Wars Rebels will air over the weekend. As you probably know, fans went crazy when it was revealed that Grand Admiral Thrawn had been resurrected from Legends and has rejoined the Star Wars universe canon as the season’s big villain. The morning after the episode was screened at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 I was lucky to get a chance to sit down with Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni and talk about the upcoming season.
We talk about a wide variety of topics, including where we are now in the Star Wars timeline, how Ezra has made so much progress since we last saw him, when we will finally get some X-Wings in the rebellion, his thoughts on The Force Awakens, if it’s possible to actually kill off a good guy or turn them to the dark side on a kid show, if Darth Vader or more Inquisitors will appear in Season 3 of Rebels, the idea of Force neutral characters, how Saw Gerrera ended up in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Wedge Antilles new canon backstory, if Rebels will end before A New Hope begins, the process of adapting Grand Admiral Thrawn back into canon, and much more. Some of these answers have been broken out into stories on the site already, but there is also a wealth of material never published before as well.
And don’t worry, the interview is season three spoiler free. Read our complete Dave Filoni Star Wars Rebels Season 3 interview, after the jump.

This winter, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be the first standalone adventure in a galaxy far, far away. The film was recently referred to as an experiment during Disney’s fourth quarter earnings call with investors, and while that worried some fans, that’s exactly what the movie is. It’s a test to see if audiences are interested in seeing these kind of movies take place in the Star Wars universe, and that’s not a bad thing. It will allow the studio to see what works and what doesn’t.
But some just can’t wait to see how this experiment turns out, and he’s created a standalone movie of his own. However, rather than creating a movie set in the Star Wars universe, he’s crafted a Pixar movie in the style of a Star Wars adventure. Using the audio from the most recent Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer and mixing it with footage from almost every Pixar movie out there, he’s created a trailer for Rogue One: A Pixar Story, and it’s outstanding.
