ahsoka tano dead

Ahsoka Tano is one of the most popular new characters to emerge from the Star Wars animated universe — with one of the coolest character designs. So why hasn’t she made it to the big screen? Well, she sort-of has with a sight unseen cameo in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but in a way that devastated fans of the character. However, Dave Filoni, Ahsoka’s creator and the mastermind behind the acclaimed Star Wars animated series like The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, suggests that Ahsoka’s apparent fate as hinted by her voice cameo in The Rise of Skywalker doesn’t spell out her doom, as many had assumed.

Mandalorian Behind-the-Scenes Video

It’s hard to believe, but much of The Mandalorian was, well, not real. Not physically, anyway. The series employed a relatively new technology called StageCraft, which uses a rear-projected LED screen to create a reactive environment that moves with the camera. It’s kind of like green screen, but better – and far more advanced. A new The Mandalorian behind-the-scenes video shows off just how this works in all its impressive glory.

Bedknobs and Broomsticks Revisited

(Welcome to Out of the Disney Vault, where we explore the unsung gems and forgotten disasters currently streaming on Disney+.)

Perhaps the most quintessential film in the Walt Disney Pictures canon is Mary Poppins. You know the music, whether you like it or not. Mary Poppins turned its eponymous lead, Julie Andrews, into a legitimate, out-and-out worldwide star, garnering her a well-deserved Academy Award. The film was a smash success, and arguably served as one of the last great triumphs of Walt Disney’s career and life before his passing in 1966. It’s influenced filmmakers, performers, and encouraged parodies over the last 55 years and counting.

And, like any successful film, it’s also inspired a few non-parody films to follow in its footsteps. The success of Mary Poppins led to other family-friendly studio musicals with a British touch, within and outside of the House of Mouse. Although the two movies were being developed concurrently, Mary Poppins most certainly inspired the existence of the 1971 film Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

The Magicians Acting Dean Review

Just six episodes into the fifth season of The Magicians, and the gang has already saved the world. I suppose that’s a good thing—but what strife or calamity will keep things interesting for the back half of the season? 

Turns out, there are plenty of other things that are effed up enough to keep things interesting. For starters, magic is still messed up on Earth—the gang moved the moon to stop Armageddon, but in doing so screwed up spellcasting. Now, every time a magician tries to do magic, their spell goes wonky. Throw in the random magical surge or two, and magicians on Earth will now be risking their lives if they do magic. Don’t worry though—Alice is on the case. She’s researching a fix at Brakebills, where Penny23 has been made interim dean during Fogg’s absence.

In Marvel Studios’ first live-action Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, we expect to see Falcon, AKA Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), grapple with the responsibility of becoming the new Captain America after the events of Avengers: Endgame left Steve Rogers an old man in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline. But it turns out Mackie may not be the only black Captain America in the upcoming show.
