Star Wars Rebels Recap

Monday, October 16 brings the first episode of the fourth season of the animated series Star Wars Rebels. Hailing from Disney XD, Star Wars Rebels was the first new TV program to be created at Lucasfilm after Disney had bought the company with a plan for revamping Star Wars and launching a barrage of new stories in various forms of media. Now the series is coming to an end with one final season.

If you haven’t watched any of Star Wars Rebels, or maybe you’ve fallen behind, Lucasfilm has you covered with an official recap video that gives you all of the finer points of the first three seasons of the show in under five minutes. So if you want to jump on the Star Wars Rebels bandwagon, this is exactly the video you’ve been looking for. Read More »

Star Wars The Last Jedi 32

I love porgs. You love porgs. We all love porgs.

2017 is the year of the porg, a fact confirmed by Monday’s release of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, where we finally saw (and heard) the cherubic sea bird in action. The internet’s immediate and unabashed love of porgs is similar to the collective response to BB-8, who melted the icy cold hearts of jaded cynics the second he rolled across the Star Wars Celebration stage in April 2015. Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a tour-de-force for the ball droid, but will the porgs get a similar showcase in The Last Jedi?

We may already be in awe of their great big eyes and tiny little wings, but beyond their unabashed cuteness, what do we really know about porgs? Kind of a lot, actually! Here’s a brief but comprehensive run-down of every bit of porg intel we currently have.

Star Wars The Last Jedi 32

The very exciting new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi took the internet by storm last night, thrilling some, disappointing others, and giving everyone more of what they really crave: Porgs! While the new trailer gave us some fresh looks at the new film, much of what happens in The Last Jedi is still shrouded in secrecy. And that’s by design. In a new interview, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson gives thoughts on Star Wars spoilers, working with Carrie Fisher, and of course, Porgs.

jedi purge

How did we end up from there being thousands of Jedi Knights to The Last Jedi? The Jedi were rendered myths after most of the Order was destroyed by Emperor Palpatine and his first-in-command Darth Vader, during the events of Star Wars Episode III: The Revenge of the Sith. Nearly 10,000 Jedi Knights existed at the time, and it was presumed that all of them — except for Yoda, Obi-Wan, and a select few who were off the radar — died.

But…there is another. At least, according to a new Star Wars comic book issue of Darth Vader, which explores the Sith Lord’s attempts to exterminate the survivors of Palpatine’s Great Jedi Purge.

Spoilers follow for Darth Vader #6.
