Star Wars vs Star Trek Trailer

Even though having big screen battles is all the rage lately, from Batman vs Superman to Captain America vs Iron Man, this year has seen two of the biggest blockbuster battles. Plus, we still have Godzilla vs King Kong coming in a few years. However, even though there are plenty of franchise crossovers happening, it’s pretty much a 110% guarantee that we’ll never see Star Wars vs Star Trek in movie theaters. But we can imagine what it would be like thanks to this cleverly edited new fan trailer where the two popular sci-fi franchises collide in the most epic way possible.

Speeder Bike Motorcycle

Even though there have been plenty of gadgets from film and television that have become realities in our time, most sci-fi creations end up just being mere dreams. This is especially true when it comes to various vehicles we’ve seen from the likes of Star Wars and other iconic franchises. But today, one iconic vehicle from a galaxy far, far away has become a reality…sort of.

In Return of the Jedi, one of the best sequences is the speeder bike chase that happens on the forest moon of Endor. Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia must evade some Scout Troopers so as not to alert the Empire to the presence of Rebels on the surface trying to shut down the shield generator of the second Death Star. The speeder bike is an awesome vehicle, but as a hovering, fast piece of machinery, it’s not exactly easy to create in the real world. But the folks at Vintage Works have done the best they can by turning a motorcycle into a Speeder Bike, and you can see it in action after the jump. Read More »

Rogue One Olympics Trailer

Many fans were disappointed when a new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story didn’t end up debuting on ABC the same weekend of Star Wars Celebration. An early description of an ABC special indicated a new trailer for the spin-off would debut on TV at that time, but it ended up just being a re-airing of the sizzle reel that debuted at the fan convention in London. However, it appears we’ll be getting a new trailer soon after all.

A TV spot aired today revealing that a new Rogue One trailer would be coming later this week. Find out when you can catch this new Rogue One Olympics trailer after the jump. Read More »

Rogue One Cameo

Even though Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will focus on an entirely new crew of characters as they attempt to steal the plans to the first Death Star, there will still be some familiar characters that Star Wars fans will have no problem recognizing. We already know that Darth Vader is making a return in the spin-off that takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, and now we have confirmation of another character we’ve seen on the big screen before returning as well. But this one comes from the prequel trilogy.

new star wars board games

I haven’t been shy about my love for Fantasy Flight Games‘ line of Star Wars board games, which take one of the world’s most popular movie franchises and brings them to the table in unique, compelling, and generally beautiful ways. I have heartily recommended the X-Wing Miniatures Game, Star Wars: Armada, and Star Wars: Imperial Assault in the past. More recently, I reviewed Star Wars: Rebellion, which is easily the greatest Star Wars board game ever designed.

Straight from Gen Con (North America’s largest tabletop gaming convention), FFG has announced the latest additions to their Star Wars game library and your wallet may very well start to cry.

Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Trailer

I’m not sure about you, but I’ve really been enjoying Star Wars Rebels. Between the Season 2 finale and the Season 3 premiere (which I saw early at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016), it seems like things are getting a lot more intense. Season 2’s climactic finale “Twilight of the Apprentice” ended with Clone Wars favorite Ashoka Tano coming face to face with her former master Darth Vader and becoming trapped and possibly killed in the Sith Temple, while Ezra is left with a Sith Holocron and is feeling the pull to the dark side.

That’s some pretty dark ground for a family television series. So when I talked to Star Wars Rebels creator/showrunner Dave Filoni at Celebration, I was curious just how dark Star Wars Rebels could get. Could Filoni kill off a beloved fan-favorite character like Ashoka? Could the main character of this kid’s animated series actually be turned to the dark side? Find out what Filoni says, after the jump.
