Star Wars Celebration has come to an end. The floodgates have closed and, once again, Star Wars news has been reduced to a steady trickle instead of a tidal wave that threatens to engulf us all. But as expected, this year’s convention was eventful, to say the very least. The past four days have brought us news about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Star Wars Rebels, Disney’s upcoming Star Wars theme park lands, and every other corner of the universe.

And just in case you missed anything, we’ve gone ahead and compiled everything you need to know in one helpful place.

Star Wars Rebels Rogue One

At Star Wars Celebration 2017, I had the opportunity to sit down once again with Star Wars Rebels showrunner Dave Filoni and discuss the upcoming fourth and final season of the series. That full interview will be coming later, but I wanted to share one tidbit from the discussion. Since seeing Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, fans have been speculating that the series would end with the epic Battle of Scarif from the perspective of the Ghost crew. But I have been told not to expect that to happen from the creator himself. Also, will we see Jedha in the final season? Here’s everything he said about a possible Star Wars Rebels Rogue One crossover.

The Force Awakens Alternate Ending

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.

Star Wars The Last Jedi poster

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. Some of them demanded their own post where we could dissect them, while others are just interesting details that fans who are hungry to know everything they can about The Last Jedi will be happy to hear. So let’s sort through this round-up of additional Star Wars The Last Jedi details, shall we? Read More »

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer

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 »

what happened to the star wars rebels characters

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.

colossal and little shop of horrors

(This post contains major spoilers from Colossal.)

Nacho Vigalondo’s new film Colossal begins with a novel high concept: what if a kaiju-style monster attacking innocent civilians was the manifestation of a random, unknowing stranger thousands of miles away? Anne Hathaway portrays that random stranger, whose growing awareness that her drunken exploits are inadvertently causing mayhem in South Korea causes a change in her lifestyle. But as the film progresses, Vigalondo reveals the wild card up his sleeve: this is less a monster movie and more a character study about the so-called “nice guy” in town (Jason Sudeikis) becoming unable and confronting the failure of his hapless dreams and choosing to wreak havoc instead. In this way, Colossal is a modern, dark flip-side to another monster-movie pastiche, the musical adaptation of Little Shop of Horrors.

Mark Hamill’s tribute to Carrie Fisher panel

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.

Rogue One Ending Recreated

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 »

Who Are Rey's Parents

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 »
