The upcoming mobile role-playing game, Star Wars: Uprising, will help bridge together the stories of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

For lapsed Star Wars fans who have finally begun to forgive this series for its many transgressions, the new canon has been a blessing. Sure, some longtime fans were angry that years worth of novels and comics and video games were wiped away so Disney and Lucasfilm could rebuild this saga from the ground up, but this decision has resulted in a creative renaissance. Marvel’s new Star Wars comics, for example, are nothing short of exceptional and thanks to the new clean slate, the writers and artists involved are pretty much allowed to do whatever the hell they want.
Announced yesterday, Hasbro and Disney have teamed for a new set of role-play toys for kids dubbed Disney Playmation. The toys combine wearable accessories with figures that interact with one another, and put the kids right in the action with heroes like Captain America, Iron Man and the Hulk. Of course, Disney has much more in mind for the upcoming playsets, including Star Wars and Frozen, but the Avengers-themed collection will be hitting stores first this year.
When rumors first began circulating about the Star Wars Anthology films, we’d heard conflicting things about both of them, but the most consistent rumor is that the second project involves Boba Fett and possibly Han Solo. With Josh Trank officially off the second Star Wars standalone project, Lucasfilm is in the market for a new director, and their first rumored options are pretty interesting.
The timeline of Star Wars history is filled with all kinds of odd corners, left turns, and wild diversions, but there’s nothing quite as strange as Black Angel. A 25-minute medieval fantasy short that was attached to the earliest screenings of The Empire Strikes Back in 1980, the film was considered lost for decades until its rediscovery in 2013. Now, this long-lost object of curiosity is getting the feature treatment and original writer/writer Roger Christian is set to return.

Star Wars Rebels feels the force of a largely unexplored period in Star Wars history, but did you know the Disney XD animated series owes quite a bit to Ralph McQuarrie’s original movie concept art? Or that it needs its own continuity expert on the films? These are just some of the Imperial intelligence to uncover in the eighth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which ignites the spark of Disney’s Star Wars Rebels!
We’ve yet to see how well Star Wars can expand crossovers of its cinematic universe beyond the upcoming films, but we may yet see TV’s Rebels interacting with its big screen brethren.

This week, new spoilers from The Force Awakens emerge, Brad Bird dishes on his future in Star Wars, and you can catch your first glimpse at the Episode 8 script.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is introducing a whole new set of characters for the upcoming trilogy, including Finn, Rey, Kylo Ren and, most importantly, BB-8. It’s also bringing back some old favorites like Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and the Stormtroopers. Because the movie takes place 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, the looks for the new characters needed to be updated. We know Luke has a bushy new beard, Han Solo has visibly aged and the Stormtroopers have gotten a new look. But instead of looking older, the Stormtroopers look brand new, and that wasn’t an accident. The new Star Wars costume designer says they were created to look like they were designed by Apple.
