When it comes to the movies, these are lucky times we’re living in. A new Star Wars movie opens this December with the return of new favorite – Rey, Finn, and Poe – and old favorites – Luke and Leia. But even for those who aren’t deeply professed fans of the galaxy far far away, Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi has a little something for you too; Laura Dern with purple hair, and Benicio Del Toro, looking as cool as ever.

Mark Hamill Reveals How He Would Have Brought Back Luke Skywalker

by Matt Singer 4 hours ago
It is one of the most indelible images in all of Star Wars. After an entire movie of searching, Daisy Ridley’s Rey finally finds him: The missing Jedi, Luke Skywalker. At the top of a mountain in Ireland (or outer space or whatever), Rey confronts Luke, played by Mark Hamill. She presents him with his old lightsaber. He stares her down. And then ... the movie ends.

When you woke up this morning you might have felt something. No, it wasn’t the rumbling of the garbage truck outside your window or the screeching pain caused by your blaring alarm clock. It was the Force.

What Is Up With Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo Hair in This ‘Star Wars’ Set Photo?

Are you seated, Star Wars fam? You need to be seated for what you’re about to see because — and there is no easy way to break this to you — something is up with Alden Ehrenreich’s ’70s-style hair in this new photo from the set of the young Han Solo movie. And that something is not necessarily a good something. In fact, he looks less like he’s playing the junior version of Harrison Ford’s iconic hero in Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s untitled Star Wars spinoff, and more like he’s playing…you know what? I’m going to give you a chance to back away now before I say something that royally screws up your Friday vibes.

We weren’t entirely surprised to hear Star Wars Rebels declaring Season 4 as its last, but our final trip aboard the Ghost may have something more shocking in mind. According to recent rumors, Emperor Palpatine may put in an appearance with a new, albeit familiar voice.

Don’t Worry, Ewan McGregor Is Still Keen on an ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Film

One of the hot rumors leading up to this past year’s Star Wars Celebration was that Lucasfilm would announce a standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi film. With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story surpassing even the most optimistic expectations  —  and the casting of Han Solo dominating the news cycle for months on end  —  the continuing adventures of Obi-Wan seemed like a no-brainer for the studio. So fans were a little bummed when neither the announcement nor Ewan McGregor were present that weekend. Had something change since the last time McGregor said he’d be interested in the role?

Adam Scott Meets His Idol Mark Hamill and There Has Never Been a Sweeter Moment on the Internet

I have interviewed a lot of actors and directors. When I tell people I interviewed someone famous, their first question is always the same: “Were they nice?” It’s usually hard to say; you don’t get much time with these filmmakers and they’re typically on their best behavior because they want you to write nice things about them. Interviewing a director is like being on a reality show: I’m not there to make friends.

Doctor Aphra Wins Fan Vote, Will Get First Figure in Hasbro’s New ‘Star Wars’ Vintage Collection

At Star Wars Celebration last month, Hasbro unveiled a number of new action figures from across the Star Wars saga. Most importantly however, the toy company announced plans to bring back the Star Wars Vintage Collection, a 3.75” figure series that was massively popular with collectors and fans before disappearing from shelves. To kick off the Vintage return, Hasbro announced a Jakku Rey as the first figure in the line, but opened up its yearly fan vote to decide the second character to join Rey. After a tight race, only one could be the victor, and Doctor Aphra has taken on all comers to earn her very own action figure.

‘Star Wars’ Characters Singing Smash Mouth’s ‘All Star’ Is Downright Delightful

by Chris Chaberski May 4, 2017 @ 1:09 PM
Star Wars Day always brings us new ways to appreciate the galaxy far, far away. This year we got a gift from some clever editors at ‘The Tonight Show,’ who managed to string together clips from all eight Star Wars movies (‘Rogue One’ included) to re-create the first verse of Smash Mouth’s “All Star.” If that sounds like it shouldn’t work at all, we agree. But it does.
