Star Wars The Last Jedi vehicles

Not long ago, we learned that Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s petulant villain Kylo Ren will have a new ride in the upcoming film in the form of a ship called the TIE Silencer. Today, we’ve learned about two more brand new vehicles that will appear in writer/director Rian Johnson‘s upcoming sequel – and they’ll both be utilized by The First Order. That’s bad news for our trusty band of galactic heroes. Take a look at these new Star Wars The Last Jedi vehicles below.

han solo movie

Director Ron Howard is currently hard at work trying to salvage the Han Solo spin-off on the way from Lucasfilm. The filmmaker stepped up to replace directing duo Phil Lord & Chris Miller after some troubles behind the scenes with producers Kathleen Kennedy and Lawrence Kasdan resulted in them splitting from the project. Even with those troubles, we still know very little about the movie itself, though a few new details have come to light.

Along with news of Michael K. Williams no longer having a role in the Han Solo spin-off, with his character being cut entirely after scheduling conflicts kept him from returning for reshoots, the actor revealed another little tidbit that we hadn’t heard before: the name of Emilia Clarke‘s character in the movie.

With no full theatrical trailer released yet for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Force Friday II under two weeks away, Star Wars fans are hungry to any new details they can get about the sequel hitting theaters in December. In the meantime, how about we whet your appetite with a new look at another anticipated Star Wars sequel?

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is coming to shelves one month before Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters, and as we’ve seen in the trailers for the video game sequel, it will span all eras of Star Wars movies, creating scenarios that we’ve never seen certain characters in before. For example, a new Star Wars Battlefront 2 trailer shows off the space battle gameplay, and it features Yoda piloting a starfighter in the middle of an epic space battle. Read More »

(Welcome to Cardboard Cinema, a feature that explores the intersection between movies and tabletop gaming. This column is sponsored by Dragon’s Lair Comics & Fantasy in Austin, Texas.)

Fantasy Flight Games and the Star Wars license are a match made in heaven. The company behind some of the biggest, glossiest, and most thematic tabletop games in the world paired with the most popular science fiction universe in pop culture? It’s a license to print money. And a license to make great games, since FFG’s Star Wars-related output has been downright startling in its quality so far.

And now, they’ve announced their next game set in a galaxy far, far away: Star Wars: Legion, a new miniatures game focused on combat between the ground forces of the Rebel Alliance and the Empire.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Opening Scenes

So far, we’ve only seen one teaser trailer and a behind-the-scenes sizzle reel for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. That’s left fans hungry for more details from the next installment of the new Star Wars trilogy, and they’re about to get them in a few weeks.

Just around the corner on September 1 is Force Friday II, the special day when toys, clothing, books and more from Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits shelves, revealing some new details about the movie. Of course, as we saw with the first Force Friday for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Luasfilm knows how to play things close to their chest by only releasing merchandise that doesn’t contain spoilers for the movie. But there are still details to be gleaned from some of the upcoming merchandise, and some of those details have been spied thanks to a recently uncovered book.

However, beware of spoilers if you don’t want to know anything about The Last Jedi. Read More »
