While the decision to gut most of the Star Wars expanded universe decreased the scope of this beloved galaxy for a few years, Lucasfilm has done a fine job of filling in those new blank spaces. New movies, television shows, novels, and comics set across the series’ timeline have been coming out at a steady pace, answering (and re-answering) the kind of questions that have fans have had fans talking for decades.

One of those big questions has always been “What happened right after Return of the Jedi?” and Chuck Wendig‘s Star Wars: Aftermath novels have set out to answer that. In the process, they’ve introduced a few characters of note to the saga and thanks to a new poster, we finally have our first look at one of them.

Right around the time Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters in 2015, beginning a new film trilogy, a new Star Wars book trilogy was launched as well. The series began with Star Wars: Aftermath, continued with Aftermath: Life Debt, and concludes later this month with Aftermath: Empire’s End.

Rogue One Wedge Antilles

Darth Vader might be the most prominent returning character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but there were a handful of more obscure ones as well, including Red Leader and Gold Leader. One who didn’t make it into the movie, though, was Wedge Antilles, despite the fact that A New Hope establishes him as being part of Red Squadron. So where was he during the Battle of Scarif?

Recently, the Lucasfilm Story Group’s Pablo Hidalgo explained why Wedge was left out of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, while Rogue One supervising sound editor Matthew Wood revealed exactly what Wedge was doing instead.  Read More »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

I guess we now know the actual identity of “the last Jedi” mentioned in the title Star Wars: The Last Jedi – it’s the ultimate Jedi who wastes all the other Jedi and eats their bones. At least, that’s the subject of a new song composed by John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats, a song that The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson has given his seal of approval. You can listen to the song, appropriately titled “The Ultimate Jedi Who Wastes All the Other Jedi and Eats Their Bones,” below.

star wars roller coaster

Right now if you want to ride a Star Wars themed theme park attraction, your choices are limited between Star Tours: The Adventures Continue and Hyperspace Mountain, Season Of The Force’s retheme of Disneyland’s Space Mountain. But the mouse house is quickly building Star Wars themed lands in both their Orlando and Anaheim-based parks. But we’re still a couple years away from the grand opening, at earliest.

But today we bring you a fan-created Star Wars roller coaster is cooler than any of the Star Wars rides that exist in the real world, and it’d very possible it could be better than anything in Star Wars Land (I’d be happy to be wrong but the sheer size and cost of this simulation is tough to beat). Watch a video of the Star Wars roller coaster after the jump.
