If you’re stuck waiting awhile before you can head off to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, you can still be swept off your feet to a galaxy far, far away and also do some good for those in need.
TOMS footwear has introduced a new line of Star Wars shoes for men and women. You can choose from two different designs in their ultra-lightweight TRVL LITE slip-on style or two other designs in their classic canvas Alpargata style. All of them have a custom storyboard style print commemorating the sci-fi saga. Read More »
If you haven’t been checking in with the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel, then you’ve been missing out on some outstanding animated shorts that deliver abridged versions of key moments and character arcs from the entire Star Wars saga.
Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures is a series of animate shorts created for the web that we first highlighted when they launched last fall. The latest takes a crack at delivering a stylized, extremely truncated version of all three Star Wars trilogies, chronicling the Skywalker saga as it’s been revealed so far. Each scene seamlessly weaves into the next, and the animation for the lightsaber battles is extremely cool. Watch the Star Wars animated short, Jedi vs Sith – The Skywalker Saga, below. Read More »

You can walk right into Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge right now at Disneyland without a problem, on the first week the land has been open to the public without reservations. Disneyland and Disney California Adventure both seem to be empty. The standby lines for some of the most popular rides in the parks are the lowest I’ve ever seen. This is the middle of the Summer, when Disneyland Resort is usually packed to capacity. What is going on here?

“I want to put my fist through this whole lousy beautiful town.” That’s what Resistance fighter Rose Tico says when she looks at the glitz and glamor of the rich and soulless on the casino planet of Canto Bight. And we can’t help but assume that she would want to do the same with this new line of high-end Star Wars furniture created by designer Kenneth Cobonpue.
The collection of upscale Star Wars furniture was first unveiled last year, but pieces were only available in only in the Philippines, which is where Cobonpue is from. Now this line of Star Wars furniture is available in the United States at select details, but you better be ready to break your bank account to get your hands on these items. Read More »
San Diego Comic-Con is right around the corner, which means fans are getting hungry to get their hands on collectibles, toys and other merchandise that you can only get at the convention. Thankfully, Star Wars is back with an eclectic array of exclusives ranging from Funko POPs to Hallmark Christmas ornaments, as well as outstanding new prints from ACME Archives, some vibrant action figures, and even a hideous nutrition shaker bottle. No, that last one isn’t a joke. Read More »
Though Funko’s bread and butter is undoubtedly their signature POP! vinyl figures, their line-up has expanded to include vehicles that fit the trademark collectible toys. The Ghostbusters Ecto-1, the Jurassic Park Jeep Wrangler, the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, and more have all been turned into what are called Funko POP Rides.
But there’s also the Funko POP Deluxe line, which gives some larger, more unconventional vehicles the POP treatment. Most of them are Star Wars vehicles like Poe Dameron’s X-wing or Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter, but now the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy is being turned into the biggest hunk of plastic in Funko’s POP Deluxe line. Yes, it’s a Millennium Falcon Funko POP Deluxe. Read More »
Last week we went to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland to build a droid in Droid Depot. This is one of the premium experiences being offered in Black Spire Outpost on the world of Batuu, alongside Savi’s Workshop where you can construct your own custom lightsaber from the scrap metal. But droid building in Galaxy’s Edge is a bit more affordable at $100, compared to the $200 buy-in required at Savi’s. Hit the jump to watch the video of our droid building experience and find out, was it worth it?

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Alternate international titles are nothing new for Hollywood movies. Sometimes translating a concept from English into another language doesn’t quite work, and a bit of the subtlety is removed in the process. (In the Czech Republic, Bad Santa became Santa is a Pervert.) Maybe there’s already a property that features the same title, so a tweak is needed to differentiate it. (In the United Kingdom, The Avengers is known as Avengers: Assemble.) And sometimes, the titles are just huge improvements in every possible way. (In Japan, Fast Five is known as Wild Speed MEGA MAX.)
Now Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has received its own alternate title in Japan, and it carries with it some familiar echoes from a different franchise altogether. Read More »
If you’re a casual Star Wars fan like me, you may have never heard of a seemingly insignificant background character in The Empire Strikes Back named Willrow Hood, who only appears in the movie for a brief second. But the character has quite the following among hardcore fans of the franchise thanks to a distinctive prop that he carries with him, and now a connection has been drawn between that prop and the upcoming Disney+ series The Mandalorian. Get the details below.
