When Disney bought Marvel and Lucasfilm, they did it for more than movies. They did it for TV shows. They did it for merchandise and they did it for licensing. Also, they spent those billions to integrate both those properties into their theme parks. That has yet to happen in a major way, but it hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from spinning. The latest possibility says Star Wars won’t take over Disneyland‘s Tomorrowland as originally though. Instead, they might take over Toontown and a large section of the Big Thunder Ranch.
Also, a Marvel themed roller coaster is rumored to be under consideration for Disney’s California Adventure, in a parking lot area, plus Frozen will take over a section of the park this holiday season and The Muppets could get a new movie. Read about all these latest Marvel and Star Wars Disneyland rumors below. Read More »

The photo featured Star Wars Episode VII director J.J. Abrams with his two co-stars, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. It made you dream about the conversations being held between these three. Then, in the background, was someone else. Another famous director who, earlier that evening, made you wish if you could be one place in the world last night, it was with him. Edgar Wright tweeted that he too was hanging out with Abrams. Read More »

GenCon is like the Comic-Con or E3 of the board gaming world. 50,000 gamers travel to Indianapolis, Indiana to attend the largest gathering of tabletop gamers in the United States. New games are released by popular designers and the major publishers hold presentations to announce new games, many of which no one was expecting. Someday I hope to go to GenCon, but for now I watch from afar via the interwebs. The biggest publisher at the con is Fantasy Flight Games, who take the stage with their yearly In-Flight Report where they announce games coming out over the next two plus years. Not only is Fantasy Flight Games one of the largest publishers, but they own the license to produce Star Wars-themed games, which helps make their yearly announcements even more highly anticipated.
At 2014 Gen Gen, Fantasy Flight announced two new Star Wars games, as well as a Scum & Villainy expansion to their popular X-Wing Miniatures games. Lets a take a look at the most interesting of the newly announced games, Star Wars Imperial Assault, which has tabletop geeks from around the world frothing at the mouth to get their hands on.

There aren’t many things everyone agrees on when it comes to J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars Episode VII. One of those, however, is that Han Solo is the star of the film. Exactly how Harrison Ford‘s iconic scoundrel plays into the story is much more murky, though. Is he a mentor figure to some of the newer characters? Does he lead the adventure on his own? Will he make it to the next film? We’ve heard rumors about all of that and today we’ve got a few more. One has to deal with different looks the character will have in the film, and the second is so crazy, it might just be true. Below, read the latest Han Solo Star Wars 7 rumors. Read More »
Rumors surrounding the villains of Star Wars Episode VII have been running rampant since before the cast was announced. Could Han Solo and Princess Leia’s kid become a Sith, much like in the Expanded Universe? Would Luke Skywalker himself turn to the dark side?

And honestly, we still don’t know for sure. But proven Star Wars scooper Latino Review has dropped a bomb of potential information about the Star Wars 7 villains. It’s a massive spoiler, that builds into a few other even bigger spoilers in regards to the plot, so beware. Read More »

In Star Wars, you can mark the passing of time through Stormtroopers. Before the Empire existed, Stormtroopers weren’t around. As war escalated, clones filled the role and fought for the Republic. Eventually, those white-suited soldiers began fighting for the Empire once the Republic fell. Then Ewoks used their heads as drums.
Which brings us to Star Wars Episode VII. We have very little idea exactly where there galaxy stands after the destruction of the second Death Star. All we know is that 30 years have passed. Much can happen in 30 years, and it seems whatever role the Stormtroopers now fill, they look different. A few photos hit the net earlier this week that may (or may not) show how the Star Wars 7 Stormtroopers look. Check out the pics below and discuss. Read More »
