Star Wars The Old Republic TV Series

Just yesterday, we called your attention to a Star Wars: The Old Republic trailer for the new expansion pack Knights of the Eternal Throne. It’s an awesome cinematic trailer that shows the potential for Star Wars movies that can exist without having direct ties to any of the characters, events and locations that we’re more familiar with from the primary Star Wars saga films. It turns out some other fans agree, but they want to see these stories play out in a different medium.

A new petition from (where all the most important issues are championed) has a group of Star Wars fans asking that Disney and Lucasfilm turn Star Wars: The Old Republic into a TV series on Netflix. Find out more below. Read More »

Star Wars Rogue One Final Trailer

Disney has released one final trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first spinoff set in the Star Wars universe. Normally, this is the part of the post where we’d say some stuff about what the movie is and who’s in it and what the story’s about, but at this point you’re probably just skipping over all of this text anyway so you can jump right to the good stuff. So let’s get to it. Watch the Rogue One final trailer below.  Read More »

Star Wars The Old Republic Trailer

One of the chief concerns fans had about the direction of the Star Wars saga over at Disney and Lucasfilm was that the companies might not take advantage of how expansive the galaxy far, far away can be. While it makes sense that Star Wars: The Force Awakens would continue the legacy and story of the main characters from the previous two trilogies, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is still playing things rather safe by focusing on a plot tied directly to the events of the first movie.

We’re happy to cut Disney and Lucasfilm some slack for Rogue One since this spin-off is kind of a grand experiment to see if fans like these separate stories. But after that there’s a Han Solo spin-off, indicating that there’s not an immediate plan to branch out further away from the characters, events, and locations we’ve come to know. Sure, there’s plenty of new stuff in Rogue One, but fans want more.

It appears some of the best original stories are being told in the video game world with the MMORPG game Star Wars: The Old Republic. The game has a new expansion pack coming out this December called Knights of the Eternal Throne, and the cinematic trailer they just released for it is a perfect example of the kind of the original, standalone stories that can exist in the Star Wars universe.

Felicity Jones - Rogue One Reshoots

Over the summer there was a lot of drama regarding reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. At the end of May, the story of Rogue One reshoots first emerged, indicating that Disney was unhappy with the first cut of the Star Wars spin-off from Godzilla director Gareth Edwards. A follow-up indicated that the reshoots were intended to lighten up the tone a bit, while another story made the situation sound more dire with reports that 40% of the movie needed to be reshot. Then clarification came detailing the extent of the reshoots and who was involved behind the scenes. This all unfolded over a single week.

Now a few months later, we have a little more perspective from Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Rogue One lead actress Felicity Jones. It should come as no surprise that they’re each playing it off as business as usual, saying the reshoots were nothing out of the ordinary. Read More »
