The end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens dealt quite a blow to fans with the death of Han Solo at the hands of his son Ben, who turned to the dark side as Kylo Ren. Sadly, the death of Han Solo means that fans won’t get to see a reunion between their favorite smuggler and his old pal, Luke Skywalker. That’s something that definitely bums Mark Hamill out, and he expressed as much in a new interview. The actor then went on to discuss a The Force Awakens alternate ending he thought of while reading the script, one that would have added even more emotional weight to the death of Han Solo.

Following the premiere of the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a bunch of new details poured onto the web thanks to interviews with director Rian Johnson and stars Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill and John Boyega.

When Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought the sci-fi saga back in a big way, Star Wars invaded every type of media you could think of, from comics to TV shows to video games. The latter resulted in the revival of one of the most popular video game franchises to take place in a galaxy far, far away: Star Wars Battlefront.
Though Star Wars Battlefront was a big bestseller before The Force Awakens hit theaters, the game ended up disappointing even some hardcore Star Wars fans by not having a campaign mode (creating fast boredom) and having some clunky gameplay, both as a soldier on the ground and as a pilot in space. Thankfully, it sounds like all those problems will be resolved when Star Wars Battlefront II arrives later this year.
Watch the full Star Wars Battlefront 2 trailer and get details on the video game sequel below. Read More »
It’s an unfortunate given when you do a prequel series that you have to explain where your never-before-seen characters are during the action of the main franchise. This is something the Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars: The Clone Wars creators have struggled with — and the show’s fans have worried over — as the Disney XD animated series prepares to draw to a close with its upcoming fourth season.

With this year marking the first Star Wars Celebration since Carrie Fisher passed away last winter, there were plenty of touching words said about the late actress and writer by colleagues and admirers alike. But no one gave Carrie quite as wonderful a tribute as Star Wars brother Mark Hamill.
Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher formed a strong bond on the set of Star Wars and an even stronger friendship after the film turned them into international superstars. Therefore it should come as no surprise that Mark Hamill has some truly delightful, touching stories about Carrie Fisher in his own Star Wars Celebration panel that was a nearly hour-long tribute to the woman he refers to as his “beloved space twin.” Fortunately, you can watch Mark Hamill’s tribute to Carrie Fisher panel in its entirety right now.

The third act of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was one of the most thrilling endings to any Star Wars movie ever. From the space battle above Scarif to the ground battle around the Imperial base on the tropical surface, it was a thoroughly exciting conclusion. But easily the best part came when the plans to the Death Star were finally downloaded by the Rebel Alliance and quickly passed along though Rebel troopers as Darth Vader was in close pursuit.
At Star Wars Celebration 2017 in Orlando, some Star Wars fans got together to recreate that spectacular ending in the Orange Country Convention center, complete with Darth Vader on their trail as they pass the Death Star plans through the convention hall. Watch the Rogue One ending recreated after the jump. Read More »
Perhaps the biggest mystery leftover from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with the exception of Luke Skywalker’s recent past, is the question regarding the identity of Rey’s parents. Fans have debated and theorized as to whether she’s the daughter of Luke Skywalker, the estranged daughter of Han Solo and Leia Organa, a descendant of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the granddaughter of Emperor Palpatine or some random girl who just so happens to be Force sensitive. Thankfully, it sounds like that mystery will be addressed in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Read More »
Following the release of the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there were plenty of details for fans to obsess about in the new footage (check out our trailer breakdown for a closer look). But perhaps the most shocking part of the trailer comes from the end when we hear Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker say, “I only know one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end.”
This detail about the movie has been there this whole time in the title The Last Jedi, but at the same time, fans have also been wondering who the title is referring to. It was thought that the international titles revealed that the title was plural, either referring to Luke and Rey (Daisy Ridley) or maybe Luke and either some Jedi who are still alive, or the Jedi who were killed by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the Knights of Ren. But it turns out, the title isn’t plural.
In a recent interview following the premiere of the teaser trailer, director Rian Johnson seemingly confirmed the title is specifically referring to Luke Skywalker, which may provide some insight into what we can expect from the Jedi master in this movie. Furthermore, with Luke Skywalker coming to the belief that the Jedi must end, Mark Hamill doesn’t rule out the possibility that our hero takes a turn to the dark side. Find out more after the jump.
