Star Wars The Last Jedi 9

Speaking of Porgs, pages from a new Star Wars book (revealed by Star Wars News Net) offer up some interesting details about Ahch-To. Here’s what they discovered:

Rey isn’t on Ahch-To to train with Luke, she’s trying to recruit him for the Resistance effort.

Luke has spent at least two years on Ahch-To; if we expand upon this bit with what we know about the canon, then this means that the time between Ben Solo’s betrayal and Luke Skywalker’s decision to set up shop on Ahch-To is as great as four years (since Bloodline mentions that Luke and Ben are still teacher and student six years before The Force Awakens), and as little as a few months. There seems to be a deliberate amount of vagueness here so that storytellers have a good amount of creative freedom with these stories.

Chewbacca fills in the emptiness in his life that Han’s death created with a bunch of puffin-penguin-guinea-pig things.

The next batch of Star Wars “Black Series” figures have been revealed, showing off mostly familiar faces from both older movies and the new trilogy. The most interesting one, by default, is Benicio del Toro’s “DJ,” mainly because we know nothing about his character. But if his action figure promises anything, it’s that he knows a thing or two about weapons.

It’s been nearly a year since Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit theaters, but ILM has released a new video showing off the creation of their breathtaking digital effects. If you’re a fan of videos that are all like “here’s a shot before the visual effects and now here’s the same shot after a bunch of genius artists got through with it,” this is for you.

Speaking of Rogue One, K-2SO actor Alan Tudyk co-wrote a back-up story with Shannon Eric Denton for an issue of the Star Wars Adventures comic. Tudyk downplays his involvement in the comic, saying that he contributed dialogue to the droid he memorably portrayed via motion capture on the big screen, but it’s nice to see him continuing to take ownership of the character. You can check out the quick, silly little story above.

BB-8 has arrived in the Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes mobile game. While he doesn’t look like much a powerhouse fighter (because of course he doesn’t), he does look like a valuable ally on the battlefield, buffing your other heroes and de-buffing your enemies. Also: he makes your squad look so much more adorable.

There have been rumors that Thandie Newton is playing Grand Admiral Rae Sloane in the upcoming Han Solo movie. If you don’t know what that means, this episode of Star Wars Explained will get you sorted.

Let’s wrap things up with this episode of The Star Wars Show, which takes a look at the Star Wars Battlefront II beta, goes behind the scenes of Forces of Destiny, and more.
