Soon after he made his adorable debut on The Mandalorian, Grogu had everyone clamoring to adopt their own tiny green Child. But only a few will be able to get one, complete with his iconic hovering pram, with the new auction of Mattel’s The Child toy with floating pram that made its debut at the New York Toy Fair last year, along with a limited release collector’s edition plush toy of The Child in a motorized hover pram.

Star Wars: Republic Commando Re-Release

As we wait for the anticipated open-world Star Wars video game to come together, Lucasfilm Games will be trying to keep us busy with some other gameplay in a galaxy far, far away. Along with the recently announced competitive arena combat title Star Wars: Hunters, gamers will soon be treated to a remaster of one of the most revered Star Wars video games of the 2000s.

Star Wars: Republic Commando was a first-person shooter on Xbox and Microsoft Windows that played a lot like a Star Wars version of Halo. Now the game is being remastered and re-released this spring on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. Read More »

Mark Englert The Mandalorian Poster

We’ll be waiting awhile before we return to the story of The Mandalorian, but as we wait for the third season to arrive on Disney+, artist Mark Englert has some outstanding new artwork to keep our spirits up.

But following in the footsteps of Mark Englert’s previous Star Wars artwork, the poster also features a glow in the dark layer that reveals another scene from the same episode. Check it out below.

ron moore star was TV series

A long time ago in a galaxy not so far away (it was this galaxy), Ron Moore, a writer on various Star Trek shows and the creator of the Battlestar Galactica reboot, was attached to write a Star Wars TV series – Star Wars: Underworld. However, Moore’s series was set up before Disney bought Lucasfilm, and the sale killed-off the show before it really got off the ground.

Now, Moore has signed a big deal with Disney, and he’s still interested in making a Star Wars show. Could it finally happen?

Kallus in Star Wars Rebels

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide, where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.)

With all the acclaim given to Star Wars: The Clone Wars in recent years, it can be easy to overlook Dave Filoni’s other great animated Star Wars show, Star Wars Rebels. That makes some sense. For one, Rebels lacks the immediate proximity to a Star Wars property enjoyed by Clone Wars. While some familiar faces do appear, the show’s central cast is mostly populated with new characters. Many of the Rebels characters who are familiar originated in the earlier show, implying its higher importance. Furthermore, Clone Wars recently got a big injection of relevance by debuting a brand new (and final) season, which will also spin-off into another series, The Bad Batch, in the future. When one chooses which Star Wars animated show to jump into, Clone Wars seems an obvious choice.

Nevertheless, it would be a mistake to skip Rebels altogether. Not only does it continue some of Clone Wars’ best storylines in totally satisfying ways, it also developed its own great inner-mythology as well. Just look at the arc of Alexsandr Kallus, voiced by the great David Oyelowo.

The Mandalorian Season 2 Honest Trailer

Following an impressive debut on Disney+ in 2019, The Mandalorian returned to the streaming service late last year for another round. The Mandalorian season 2 Honest Trailer points out that it’s just the never-nude bounty hunter and tiny meme generator on new adventures of the week where they’re always striking some kind of deal.

The Mandalorian Not Recasting Cara Dune

It’s been one week since Lucasfilm confirmed that Gina Carano would not be returning as Cara Dune in the Star Wars series The Mandalorian on Disney+. The studio opted not to renew Carano’s contract for a new season of The Mandalorian after she shared an Instagram story comparing the current U.S. political climate to Nazi Germany, and it was the straw that broke the camel’s back after a variety of controversial social media posts the actress had made over the past several months. But what does that mean for the character Cara Dune?

Last night, a story broke that Lucasfilm may be looking to recast Cara Dune sometime down the road, but Disney has since confirmed that the character will simply no longer be part of The Mandalorian or any other upcoming Star Wars projects. Read More »

New Boba Fett Comic Book

Star Wars fans are eagerly anticipating the arrival of The Book of Boba Fett, a new spin-off series focused around the bounty hunter who made quite the return in The Mandalorian on Disney+. But before we see how the story of Boba Fett continues, Marvel Comics and writer Charles Soule are going to tell a story from his past that fills in the gap between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

War of the Bounty Hunters is a new five-issue comic book miniseries that will reveal the difficulty that Boba Fett had in delivering Han Solo in carbonite to Jabba the Hutt. Though it might have seemed like the job was easy, it turns out that the bounty hunter had to deal with all sorts of problems as he tried to deliver the slimy gangster his new prize. In fact, at one point he even lost the captured smuggler altogether. Find out more about the new Boba Fett comic book below. Read More »
