The first day of Star Wars Celebration brought the reveal of the merchandise that Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will have on sale at the First Order Cargo and Resistance Supply shops within the theme park expansion. Now another wave of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge merchandise has been revealed from three other shops nestled in the Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu.
The new Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge merchandise reveal includes plenty of playthings from Toydarian Toymaker, a roster of cuddly and creepy animals from the Creature Stall, and some outstanding gear for cosplayers from Black Spire Outfitters. We’ve got a closer look at the latest items that were on display at the Galaxy’s Edge booth at Star Wars Celebration below. Read More »
So far the video game offerings in the Star Wars universe since Disney bought Lucasfilm have left a lot to be desired. While Star Wars Battlefront was fun for a little while, there’s no real depth to the game and it’s distinctly missing what makes an adventure in a galaxy far, far away so exciting. Hopefully Electronic Arts can change that with a new Jedi fantasy adventure game.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is about a Jedi padawan trying to survive after Order 66 resulted in almost all the Jedi in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. As the creators of the game touted during the Star Wars Celebration, this is entirely a Jedi story. There’s no multiplayer and no micro-transactions. But there is a Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order trailer that shows off our first glimpse at the video game, including the new lead Jedi character, an intimidating new Inquisitor, a cute new droid, an intriguing new lightsaber, and more.
Watch the trailer below, and keep reading for some other details revealed during the game’s Star Wars Celebration panel. Read More »
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is already turning into one of the most immersive theme park experiences to date. But the Imagineers behind Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge are taking it one step further by integrating a piece of technology that we all have in the back of our pockets: our phones.
But in a galaxy far, far away, our smartphones are not just regular old phones but are “transformed into an amazing in-story tool,” Walt Disney Imagineering Executive Creative Director Asa Kalama said at the Star Wars: Celebration panel in Chicago. The new Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge app will take guests beyond just experiencing the story of Batuu, a grimy outpost planet on the edge of the galaxy. They will live it.

At Star Wars Celebration 2019, fans can try out Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series, a new virtual reality video game from ILMxLAB coming to the Oculus Quest headset and Oculus Rift headsets this spring (watch the new trailer). But before Vader Immortal becomes available to the general public, I was able to get a sneak preview of the experience, and let me tell you, wielding a lightsaber has never felt so good.
Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series is one of the most fun, immersive video game experiences I’ve ever had, and even though it seems rather simply executed when it comes to player participation, it really shows the potential of virtual reality to bring us into the worlds that we love to escape into on the big screen. Find out more from my Vader Immortal reaction below. Read More »

This year, LEGO is celebrating the 20th anniversary of creating Star Wars building brick playsets. The year was 1999, when The Phantom Menace was bringing Star Wars back from a 16-year hiatus of new adventures on the big screen. And 20 years later, the Star Wars LEGO sets are better than ever, so there’s no better time to reveal a new set recreating the first ship to ever grace the big screen in the Star Wars universe: the Tantive IV rebel cruiser.
In Star Wars: A New Hope, the Tantive IV rebel cruiser desperately tries to evade the much larger Imperial Star Destroyer, but it only ends up being captured with the rebel leader Princess Leia aboard. Now you can build the ship yourself with this LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV playset, featuring five minifigures, shooting turrets, detachable escape pods, and more. Read More »

A new rumor has surfaced suggesting Disney is working on a Star Wars 4K Blu-ray box set of the entire Skywalker Saga. The three prequel films, the three original Star Wars films to hit theaters, and the latest trilogy, will all be packaged together in one giant box set. The rumor states that the set will feature 4K scans of the original negatives, which suggests we might be getting the original versions of the original trilogy, not just the special editions with the additional special effects. Fingers crossed.
