We’ve seen the story of Boba Fett‘s youth, including the events by which he was adopted as the son of Jango Fett rather than becoming one of the first generation of Stormtroopers. But we still haven’t quite seen how Boba Fett specifically became the character who appeared in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Now, we’ll see a lot more of the fan-favorite character, as the second Star Wars Anthology film will reportedly be a Boba Fett origin story. Read More »

This is the first Star Wars Day in ten years where we actually have a new Star Wars movie to look forward to.

We’ve seen a gorgeous new Vanity Fair cover and a behind-the-scenes video, and now we have a bunch of exciting Star Wars The Force Awakens images to share as well.

Here are new looks at The Force Awakens characters for Star Wars Day.
It may already be May the 4th where you are, which means it is either already Star Wars Day, or very shortly will be. While the fan holiday grew out of an obvious phrase (May the 4th be with you) it has a lot more potential this year with Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening in December. We saw the great Vanity Fair cover earlier today, featuring new characters Rey, Finn, and BB-8 along with Chewbacca and Han Solo, and it looks like the magazine will deliver even more very soon.
Now there’s a 45-second video which shows off the Adam Driver Force Awakens character, and gives us some info on the role played by Lupita Nyong’o. There are also new stormtrooper shots, another look at Rey, and some great shots of her speeder, alongside some behind-the-scenes footage of that cover shoot featuring Harrison Ford. Read More »
