willow tv series Disney+

We’ve heard rumblings of a Willow TV series, and now it’s official. Jon M. Chu, director of Crazy Rich Asians and In the Heights, is set to direct a Willow TV series for Disney+, with Willow star Warwick Davis returning as Willow Ufgood. Ron Howard, who directed the film, is also on board as executive producer. Released in 1988, the fantasy epic Willow came from a story by George Lucas, and while it was not the huge blockbuster Lucasfilm was hoping for, it turned a profit – and developed a strong following thanks to home video.

The Rise of Skywalker behind the scenes Ewok

What’s this? A Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker story that does not involve the novelization filling in gaps left open in the movie? Thank the Maker!

In the spirit of good faith, let’s all put aside the divisiveness of J.J. Abrams‘s Skywalker saga finale for a moment and focus on one of the film’s brief cameos: that quick moment when Star Wars legend Warwick Davis reprised his role as Wicket the Ewok. A new behind-the-scenes video is making the rounds which tells the story of that other Ewok who was standing next to Wicket, and features Abrams looking very pleased that he was able to make Star Wars history by bringing Wicket in one more time.

Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker resistance fleet

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 »

Warwick Davis Solo Cameo - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

We’re still a little over a week away from Solo: A Star Wars Story hitting theaters. But since the film played the Cannes Film Festival, there have been some screenings a bit earlier in advance than usual, and that means some interesting details are coming to light. We’re not going to dive into any of the spoilers from the movie just yet, but we do have one intriguing detail that even the most hardcore Star Wars fans wouldn’t realize upon their first viewing of Solo.

Warwick Davis first appeared in the Star Wars saga as Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi and since then he’s had little cameo roles in The Phantom Menace, The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and Rogue One (seen above). We already knew the actor was also appearing in Solo: A Star Wars Story as well, but now we know who he’s playing, and it appears to be one of the characters he portrayed in one of the previous Star Wars films.

Star Wars Actors and Directors Mourn Carrie Fisher

Carrie Fisher passed away yesterday at the age of 60. Although best known for her work as Princess Leia Organa in four Star Wars movies, she was so much more: a tremendous writer, an incredible wit, one of Hollywood’s most prolific script doctors, and a brutally honest personality whose openness about mental illness provided hope and inspiration for many.

The fact that we can build an entire article around her colleagues saying nice things about her speaks volumes.
