Boba Fett Disintegration

Have you watched the original Star Wars trilogy and wondered why Darth Vader points at Boba Fett and insists that the bounty hunter doesn’t disintegrate the occupants of the Millennium Falcon? Me neither! I always just thought it was a cool little reference that made Fett seem more notorious and stand out from his contemporaries, but since we’re in the midst of a full-on Star Wars renaissance with new movies, books, comics, and more coming out regularly, it was only a matter of time until that little line of dialogue was fleshed out and explained.

We address MUCH BIGGER questions…things that keep movie fandom awake at night, staring at their ceilings as the hours tick away and the wondering nearly drives them to the brink of insanity.

Thandie Newton Han Solo Character

Thandie Newton earned her place in the science fiction pantheon with her incredible work in the first season of Westworld last year, but she’s now looking to get nice and cozy with the genre in the Han Solo spin-off film.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Han Solo Ralph McQuarrie

By now, Star Wars fans should be well aware of the impact that concept artist Ralph McQuarrie had on the franchise. George Lucas once described McQuarrie’s contribution to Star Wars as “incalculable” because of how integral the artist’s early sketches were to translating Lucas’s script into a visual guide for the talented craftspeople to be able to bring the story to life.

Some of McQuarrie’s unused designs and early ideas have been incorporated into various pieces of Star Wars mythos over the years, from J.J. Abrams bringing his art to the big screen in The Force Awakens to McQuarrie’s Darth Vader design finding its way into Star Wars Rebels.
