Since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is wrapping up the Skywalker saga, it’s pretty much the last time for some key characters to make a significant appearance in the long-running sci-fi saga. And since it’s the end of an era in a galaxy far, far away, there are plenty of people who wanted to get in on the last chapter of the story that began all the way back in 1977.
That’s why there are plenty of cameos to behold in The Rise of Skywalker, some in the form of new characters, others being characters from previous installments of Star Wars. We’ve got a list of all the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker cameos that we know of so far, but beware of major spoilers as we name them. Read More »
There have been endless debates about whether or not the recent Star Wars sequels are good, if the Star Wars prequels deserve to be reconsidered, and what the future of the sci-fi franchise will be. But if there’s one thing that all fans can agree on, it’s that the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated movie is absolute trash. If you’ve never had the displeasure, we’ll let the Star Wars: The Clone Wars Honest Trailer do the heavy lifting for you. Read More »
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has the difficult task of not only wrapping up this new trilogy of Star Wars movies, but the entire Skywalker saga that began back in 1977. Because of that, the movie will be reaching into every facet of Star Wars for an epic finale that we’ve seen teased in the trailers and TV spots. We already know that a bunch of ships from the history of the saga will gather for what will undoubtedly be the biggest space battle of the entire franchise, but it sounds like we might actually see some characters popping up as well, at least if director J.J. Abrams is to be believed. Read More »
Hot on the heels of the new Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker figures from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones coming to the Black Series line, another batch of figures inspired by the Battle of Geonosis will be coming in the spring of 2020 too. Count Dooku and a couple of Jedi Masters will be coming to shelves, as well as a different kind of Battle Droid.
On top of that, the Star Wars Vintage Collection (which is the only way that the classic style of 3.75 inch figures are being kept alive) will be adding some figures that will make fans of The Clone Wars animated series very happy too.
Check out the new 2020 Star Wars Black Series figures and Vintage Collection additions below. Read More »
Last summer, Star Wars fans had their world rocked when a surprise announcement signaled the return of the animated series The Clone Wars. Now we’re much close to the show’s comeback, this time by way of Disney+, and a new trailer has revealed the return of a certain Jedi.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars season seven is bringing back Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein), who left behind her master Anakin Skywalker and the rest of the Jedi Council to venture out on her own. The full trailer shows where she finds some new friends, but it also dives even further into the titular war, showing familiar Jedi in battle, the Clone Troopers by their side, and a villain that fans will be excited to see all over again. Watch the Star Wars The Clone Wars season 7 trailer below. Read More »
Star Wars Resistance is coming this fall to Disney XD. However, we still don’t know a whole lot about the series. So far we’ve only gotten a brief synopsis of the story and a small amount of artwork from the anime-inspired series. If you’re hoping to get answers from series creator Dave Filoni, he’s not ready to spill the beans yet…and he might not always be the best person to get that information from anyway.
Dave Filoni has revealed that he won’t be quite as involved with Star Wars Resistance as he was on the previous animated series Star Wars Rebels. Of course, that makes perfect sense since now that we know The Clone Wars will be making a comeback with new episodes, and that will keep him from being the Star Wars Resistance showrunner. Find out what Filoni had to say below. Read More »

Plenty of characters who originated in the live-action Star Wars movies have gone on to appear in animated series like The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. However, we’ve yet to see an animated character making the jump to live-action.

And it sounds like this is something that could happen more often in the future.
Star Wars Rebels writer and executive producer Simon Kinberg recently spoke with Moviefone about the connectivity of the various Star Wars media out there, borrowing characters from the movies for animated shows, and the possibility of seeing that process go the opposite way in future Star Wars movies.
