Info•Rama was founded in 2014 by artists Kevin Tong and Tom Whalen, who set out to create beautiful infographics that were full of meticulously researched information while also doubling as gorgeous pieces of art. Since both Tong and Whalen regularly collaborate with Mondo, the purveyors of the internet’s favorite pop culture posters and merchandise, a team-up was inevitable. Now, Info•Rama is the subject of the latest Mondo Gallery show in Austin, Texas, with Tong, Whalen, and Matt Taylor contributing pieces that break down some of your favorite movies, television shows, and comic book characters while also looking nothing short of gorgeous.
And you can check out every print from the show below.

A few weeks ago, news that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was set to undergo five weeks of reshoots this summer arrived online and the internet reacted as it often does: with mass panic. This surely meant that the movie was in trouble! This surely meant that the movie was doomed! Cats and dogs living together! Mass hysteria!
Of course, the most extreme rumors (40% of the film was set to be reshot!) were debunked and it quickly become clear that this entire situation wasn’t out of the ordinary. Most major films undergo reshoots because they have the time and money to do so. However, most major movies don’t have Star and Wars in the title, so they’re allowed to get away with this stuff under the radar without anyone noticing. Every filmmaker wishes that they had the time and money for reshoots – they’re a useful luxury. And now, director Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy have officially gone on the record about these reshoots and what they mean for Rogue One.

Yesterday, a bunch of new info about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story arrived online, revealing (and confirming) a great deal about the upcoming spin-off film’s cast of characters. However, special attention was paid to the Rebel operative played by Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker and rightfully so – this isn’t the first time this particular character has had a role to play in the larger Star Wars saga.
It turns out that Whitaker is playing Saw Gerrera, a Rebel extremist who was first introduced in the fifth season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars as a much younger man. This is the first piece of hard evidence that Lucasfilm was serious about strengthening the ties between the new movies and the various other pieces of Star Wars media floating about. You probably don’t need to know the entire history of Mr. Gerrera to appreciate whatever he does in Rogue One, but here’s everything we’ve gathered so far.

Yesterday we finally got ironclad confirmation that Darth Vader would appear in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. So today’s big news shouldn’t surprise you, but it will probably make you happy: Yes, James Earl Jones will return once again to voice the Sith Lord. (“A variety of large-framed performers” will fill the actual suit.) Jones originated the role in the original Star Wars, all the way back in 1977, and recently reprised the character for Disney XD’s Star Wars: Rebels. Read More »

For months now there has been speculation that Darth Vader would appear in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And unlike some of the other theories and rumors floating around, this one passes the sniff test: the timing lines up (the story takes place shortly before the events of A New Hope) and so does the premise (the Rebels are out to steal the Death Star plans). But it’s only now we’re getting ironclad confirmation.
Yes, we will see Darth Vader in Rogue One, as revealed on a new Entertainment Weekly cover. Read More »
