luke skywalker jedi temple

Ahch-To may have you thinking back to a certain recurring joke in Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tightsbut the oddly-named planet is crucial to Star Wars lore and the plot of the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It’s where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker finds himself in self-exile, and where the aspiring Jedi Rey finds Luke at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But The Last Jedi won’t get into the nitty-gritty of how the former Tatooine farmboy ended up in the Ahch-To Jedi Temple — nor will the movie overshare details at all, really — so you’ll have to look to the Star Wars Battlefront II video game to gain insight into this particular journey.

Danny McBride co-writing a new Halloween movie with Superbad director David Gordon Green sounds like a joke, but the Vice Principals star is taking this thing very seriously. In a new interview, McBride spoke about making the series scary again, getting Jamie Lee Curtis to return, and trying to honor a series beloved by so many. That last one is admittedly tricky when you’re literally ignoring every single movie in the franchise except the original, but hey, if there’s one horror series that needs emergency surgery to stay alive, it’s Halloween.

Jaina and Jacen Solo

Star Wars is steeped in wildly esoteric lore. Though Disney stripped down the expanded world of the Star Wars universe when they took control of Lucasfilm, fans of the franchise and its expansive decades-deep landscape still use the framework set up by the books and comics to theorize on what might happen next and who we might see appear in the current Star Wars canon. Ever since the first The Force Awakens rumors started creeping around the internet, there were rumblings that the film might include two of the expanded universe’s most pivotal characters: Jaina and Jacen Solo. Though the pair never materialized, their story may well be able to give us insight into the future of another pair in the new trilogy: Rey and Kylo Ren.

Thor Ragnarok Val

The screenwriting process involves long hours, lost sleep and graying hair. It also involves throwing away a hundred pretty good ideas to reach a great idea. And then you throw away a great idea to make sure an even better idea can survive elsewhere. Marvel movies are no different and screenwriter Eric Pearson has revealed that early Thor: Ragnarok drafts featured a cameo from an old Thor movie villain, a wholly unnecessary romance, and even a different background story for Cate Blanchett’s Hela.

paul bettany han solo

If you’re a /Film reader, you’re probably familiar with the messy production of Solo: A Star Wars Story by now. We’ve written about the firing of original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the hiring of Ron Howard to finish the movie, how actor Michael K. Williams could not return for the reshoots, and how Paul Bettany stepped in to take his place. Now, we’ve reached the point where we can start talking about Solo as an actual movie and not something that is totally on fire.

Case in point: we can now talk a little about who Bettany is playing in the movie.

Ben Affleck Batman

What is the deal with Ben Affleck‘s Batman? It seems every month there’s a conflicting story regarding the man fans call Batfleck – he’s either staying for more Bat-adventures or he’s getting ready to jump the DCEU ship. Now Affleck himself has offered an update on the part, and confirmed that his Bat-days are limited, and that he’s looking for a “cool way” to leave the DCEU. Is Ben Affleck done with Batman?

Fury Road Lawsuit

Oh, what a lovely day for a lawsuit. George Miller, who created a modern-day masterpiece with Mad Max: Fury Road, is not content to just sit back and make a Fury Road follow-up without getting his just rewards. The Aussie filmmaker wants the WB to pay-up on a bonus they originally agreed on. Warner Bros. doesn’t see it that way, and so both Miller and Warners will now hop into souped-up vehicles laden with spikes and race forward into the wasteland of due process. What will become of the potential Fury Road sequel now?

Wonder Woman 2 release date

Wonder Woman was exactly the booster shot the DCEU needed, so it only makes sense that Warner Bros. and DC want to get to Wonder Woman 2 ASAP. After previously committing to a December 2019 release date for the Amazon warrior’s return, Warners has now moved the Wonder Woman 2 release date up to November 2019.
