star wars the rise of skywalker kylo ren plot holes

Even three months after its release, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker refuses to leave the national conversation. Perhaps that’s because so much supplementary material keeps coming out after the fact to fill out the plot gaps in the film’s ever-so-complex narrative. The latest from the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker novelization is all about Kylo Ren and his arc form Big Bad to big softie, and how exactly it happened.

It’s a shame we won’t have any new episodes of The Mandalorian to watch until later this year, especially since the series will bring Ahsoka Tano into the live-action Star Wars universe in the second season.

Dave Perillo has come through with two prints for the second and third episodes from the first season, “The Child” and “The Sin.” Meanwhile, Christian Waggoner has delivered what might be the best piece of art featuring the little guy lovingly referred to as Baby Yoda. And they’re all officially licensed by Acme Archives. Check out The Mandalorian prints from Bottleneck Gallery below. Read More »

Now the knuckleheads from the Great White North have been immortalized as statues in Edmonton, Canada. Read More »

That group has been releasing albums since the early 1990s, and they also provided the soundtrack for Riley’s movie. (Well, technically, they provided two soundtracks, but we’ll get to that in a minute.) Now the film’s soundtrack has been released on vinyl thanks to Mondo and Interscope Records, and you can learn more details below.
