Star Wars 40th Anniversary Black Series Figures

In case you didn’t realize it, this year will mark the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. Surely the excitement will be much higher towards the end of the year when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters, but there’s a lot of time between then and now. Fans need something to hold them over, and some of the 40th anniversary memorabilia hitting shelves should to the trick.

One of the best Star Wars toy lines in recent memory is the roster of 6-inch Black Series action figures. They’re well articulated, impressively sculpted, and they just might be the best moderately prices action figures the franchise has ever seen. In honor of Star Wars 40th anniversary, Hasbro is paying homage to the original release of Kenner action figures with a new line of Black Series figures of characters from A New Hope. One special edition figure will even come with something that older, seasoned Star Wars fans will be very familiar with.

Here at /Film, we’re very well aware of just how much coverage we give Star Wars. But it’s one of our favorite franchises, and plenty of our readers out there can’t help but read every single bit of all the Star Wars news and rumors out there.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was a big hit for Disney, and despite some of the actors having contracts for possible future film appearances, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy has been adamant that we won’t get a sequel to this Star Wars standalone movie. Besides, the fates of many of the characters are pretty clearly spelled out in the film and, yes, Rogue One already has a sequel in the form of Star Wars: A New Hope.

But the Star Wars galaxy is a big open story, filled with chapters that Disney hopes to explore across various mediums. And today the company announced that a new book called Star Wars: Inferno Squad will take place immediately after the events of Rogue One. Hit the jump to learn more about Star Wars Inferno Squad.

the last jedi plural

The initial reaction to the news that Rian Johnson‘s upcoming Star Wars movie would be titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi went something like this: “Ooh. That’s a cool title! But what does it mean? Who is the last Jedi? Is it Luke? Is it Rey? Wait…the plural form of Jedi is Jedi, so maybe it’s referring to both of them? Well, I guess we’re going to have to wait until the official international translations arrive, which should shed some light on this English language predicament!”

And here we are: the international translations have arrived and Star Wars: The Last Jedi is plural, meaning that the title is in reference to more than one Jedi Knight.

What Happened to Jar Jar Binks? His Sad Fate Revealed

what happened to jar jar binks

It looks like it’s time to close the book on Jar Jar Binks. Literally. The much-maligned comic relief character was shuffled into the margins after his debut in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, but he remains the poster child for why so many fans strongly dislike the prequel trilogy: he’s a tone-deaf, poorly written, slightly racist cartoon character. However, the next canon Star Wars novel hitting shelves reveals exactly what happened to the universally maligned Gungan and it’s a fitting (and surprisingly tragic) conclusion for one of the most despised characters in pop culture history.

Rogue One Visual Effects

The visual effects of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story were quite the topic of discussion once fans saw that actor Peter Cushing was recreated by way of a motion-capture performance and digital effects.

A new Rogue One visual effects reel from the wizards over at Industrial Light & Magic shows off all the layers that went into the planetary destruction of Jedha after a little blast from the Death Star. There are also some breakdowns of sequences on Scarif when the Rebels are attacking the Imperial base on the tropical planet.
