Star Wars Battlefront

Star Wars: Battlefront didn’t win over everybody, but it was a well made and beautiful game that captured the Star Wars flavor in many satisfying ways. And it also sold really well, so we were definitely going to get a sequel. EA chief financial officer Blake Jorgensen (via Polygon) has revealed that the next game is expected “a year from now” and that they are “working very hard on making sure that is an extremely deep and engaging offering.” While Battlefront doesn’t look like it’ll be an annual occurrence (which is good news, because that’s how you kill a game series), it does seem likely that a new release will accompany each main “episode” movie going forward.

Mace Windu Alive

Apparently, I missed the ridiculous theory that Supreme Leader Snoke was actually Mace Windu, the Jedi Knight played by Samuel L. Jackson in the prequel trilogy. I guess people thought this could be a thing because both of them are bald? Well, let’s just say that Jackson isn’t on board with this theory either, telling Nerd Bastards:

I’m not a part of that rumor or theory. I would like for Mace Windu to just be Mace Windu. I’m of the idea that Jedi can fall from enormous heights and still survive. The fact that he cut his hand off is not a big deal [either]. There are a lot of one-handed Jedi or Jedi with robotic or enhanced hands in that world.

To be fair, I also don’t like the idea of Mace Windu surviving the events of Revenge of the Sith. If we resurrect every supposedly dead character because people like them, death stops mattering. Mace Windu’s death means something! Keep him dead!

A few new Rogue One trading cards have been revealed by Topps, each of them showcasing a different alien and the actor inside the suit (while also allowing some blank space for a potential convention autograph). You’ll not that Paul Kasey plays both Edrio Two Tubes (one of Saw Gerrera’s Rebels on Jedha) as well as the Mon Calimari Admiral Raddus.

I have pretty high standards when it comes to pop culture mash-ups and I have specially high standards for Star Wars mash-ups since everyone makes Star Wars pop culture mash-ups. However, this piece by artist Andy Wynn, which smashes Star Wars and Rosemary’s Baby together gets my seal of approval. This isn’t an arbitrary combination of two movies – of course the classic poster for the famous horror movie about a woman impregnated with the child of Satan would provide appropriate imagery for Leia Organa’s nightmarish child-rearing experience.

Acme has unveiled a new batch of Star Wars art based on scenes and characters from Return of the Jedi, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Rogue One. They are “Attack on Takodana” by Christopher Clark, “Reluctant Warrior” and “Death Troopers: Scarif Invasion” by Randy Martinez, and “The Golden God” by Joel Payne.
