I’ve got a bad feeling about this. Well, at least a worried feeling. Most fans were riveted by the first teaser trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first spin-off film that takes place outside of the traditional trilogy narrative. However, if a new rumor is to be believed, now that Disney has seen the first cut of the movie, they’re not very happy with the what director Gareth Edwards has done. In an attempt to repair the movie, some “expensive reshoots” have been planned. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

Plenty of Star Wars fans put together some amazing cosplay in order to dress up as their favorite characters. Even before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters, fans were already figuring out how to get costumes together in order to dress up as Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Kylo Ren and other new characters we hadn’t seen before. Now one costume from The Force Awakens is about to get easier to put together, but it’ll also cost you a hefty chunk of change.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought back Stormtroopers as the faceless bad guy soldiers of The First Order, but with some updated armor. Now the upscale movie prop replica company ANOVOS has The Force Awakens Stormtrooper armor available for purchase, but only for a limited time. Check it out below. Read More »
Even though John Williams‘ score for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been available to fans since the film hit theaters late last year, a vinyl version of the soundtrack wasn’t available until this year. While there are a couple versions available out there for purchase right now, Walt Disney Records has a special edition vinyl release that will be available in June that is extremely cool.
The double LP release of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens score has hand etched holograms created by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science that can be seen when the record is spinning and the right light is shined above it. You can see The Force Awakens vinyl hologram in action after the jump. Read More »
No, that’s not a typo. Any Star Wars fan can tell you that the original title for the final installment of the original trilogy was Revenge of the Jedi. Franchise creator George Lucas eventually changed the title to Return of the Jedi before release because he had determined that getting revenge was not something a Jedi would seek out.
However, the Star Wars sequel was teased so far out in advance of the release that some marketing materials still had the title Revenge of the Jedi. The teaser poster featuring that title is worth a pretty penny, but there was also a teaser trailer that had the abandoned title still intact, and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has dusted it off and posted it online.

If you’re not watching The Star Wars Show, Disney’s official weekly Star Wars weberies, you should be. This week’s edition opens with a funny video from the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII featuring director Rian Johnson and Chewbacca. But not only that, the show has revealed the key art for Star Wars Celebration Europe, which features both the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens/Episode 8 and the new cast for Star Wars: Rogue One. Sure, this might have been more cool if that Rogue One art didn’t leak online last week, but its still cool seeing this cast in this layout including a full reveal of Ben Mendelsohn as Director Krennic. But the art (and show) gives us our first look at a new model of AT-At and a new rank of Stormtrooper. Find out the names and more, after the jump.

That included films from Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar Animation. However, the deal didn’t begin until 2016. Thankfully, that year is now, which means we’re on the brink of getting a bunch of Disney movies at our disposal. More specifically, Disney’s exclusive Netflix deal begins in September.
