Happy Friday, Star Wars fans! We’re here to take a first look at the new character Moroff in Star Wars Rogue One. Proceed with caution, as there could be potentially spoilery speculation below.
After writing an article on Snoke recently I started to think about some of the ideas that came from them. Namely that Snoke is from an older group of Darkside practitioners that monitored the Galaxy from the Unknown Regions. This got me thinking what exactly “The First Order” means. Lets explore it shall we.
Welcome back, dear readers! Well another slow week in Star Wars news doesn’t it feel like we knew most of TFA’s plot by now and we haven’t really learned that much about Rogue One… I wonder if People are protecting their sources or Lucasfilm has locked down things better than before? Anyhoo, let’s see what we got!
Before TFA was released there was quite a bit “Disney is going to ignore the prequels” talk. Some considered that a good thing some a bad. We now know that this just isn’t true, Rebels has brought back several Clone Wars characters and comics and novels have also delved into the prequels. Now with Saw Gerrera joining the live action in Rogue One we have a definite link from the prequel era on the big screen. Let’s dive into what makes Saw the best fit for this and why we are so excited to see him on the big screen.
In my final* character study of the new trilogy I am going to focus on Finn. Like the other characters we’ve discussed Snoke, Kylo and Rey, we are going to speculate on his past and look to what we can figure out about his future. Buckle up and potential spoilers ahead.
One year in the bucket. One year of weekly recaps sometimes they were packed sometimes they had one story but we got them all out no matter what. I have to say I’m happy that we have a few offical stories to share this week. I’d say we were lucky but we don’t believe in luck around here.
It’s increasingly amazing how Lucasfilm and Diseny have kept such tight wraps on their current projects. Compared to This time last year with all the news and leaks that we had on The Force Awakens, we know next to nothing about Rogue One. There are a few new planets in this one, and we are starting to get a trickle of information about them. I think perhaps the most interesting is Jedha, which we’ll talk about today. There could be potential spoilers below, so tread carefully.
Continuing our series on our new characters today we will be figuring out what is really up with Rey. We’ll look at theories discussing her past, who she’s related to, and what we think we’ll see for her arc. Like our article on Kylo and our articles on Snoke this will be a mix of review of other fans’ theories and our own original ideas. Potential Spoilers ahead.
Another week another recap. Not a lot of new stories this week but what we do have focuses on Future Tv projects and Rogue One news. We expect Rogue One will be front and center until December so get hyped! Spoilers Ahead
Star Wars Episode VIII is of course the highly anticipated and untitled follow-up to the enormously successful Star Wars: The Force Awakens. TFA is the movie that dominated fans’ minds and the box office, so its follow up has some high expectations. One question on my mind is: how will it begin exactly? How do you kick off the most anticipated sequel since Empire Strikes Back?
After writing about Snoke last week I got to thinking about the other new characters (Kylo, Rey, Finn and Poe) and where exactly they come from; Parentage, history, and what that means for the future. We’re going to highlight of one character each Wednesday for the next few weeks putting together what we know and what we suspect. As always possible spoilers ahead.
Yeah, that’s right, Star Wars fans! This is our 50th weekly recap. Since do this thang every Monday, that means in two weeks we will have been doing this for 1 year! Time flies when you’re having fun. This week seems like a drought compared to the deluge we’ve been having after Celebration Europe. Let’s check out the news.
The recent Star Wars novels have dug a pretty deep rabbit hole. Hard to tell how far it goes. We’re looking at Snoke this week and examining some theories from around the web. Today, I’d like to take a look at the Shadow Council and related factions, and see if we can connect the dots to anything pointing to that mysterious figure: Snoke.
Snoke, Leader of the First Order, seducer of Ben Solo to the Darkside, and… well that’s about all we really know isn’t it? I mean we know he’s not human but humanoid, he saw the Rise and Fall of the Empire and he has force abilities. There have been a TON of theories about who Snoke is from Anakin to Palpatine to Plaguies and for the most part they are terrible. However there is one that might not be and it follows along with my thinking as of late. Lets dig in and warning possible spoilers ahead.
Greetings, Star Wars fans. The Star Wars world has just eased out of both Celebration Europe and San Diego Comic Con. And now, we’re back again to bring you another weekly recap of Star Wars newsy goodness. Let’s get right into it.
When The Clone Wars cartoon was ended after Disney bought Lucasfilm, it left a couple of threads unfinished. What happens to Maul and the Dark Saber? What happens to Ahsoka after Order 66? Over the last two seasons of Rebels we’ve learned a bit about this with Maul returning and Ahsoka turning out to be Fulcrum in addition to getting to know new characters. Based on the trailer and announcements from Star Wars Celebration Europe we know the Rebels development team is going to continue to develop those stories as well as try to bring legends back, specifically Thrawn. Let’s now explore how Rebels Season 3 will resurface these questions and expand the Star Wars universe. more “Rebels Expanding the Universe”
Greetings Star Wars fans! Loud rumbles made their way throughout Star Wars fandom this weekend, as the Rogue One trailer was an exclusive for only Celebration Europe attendees. Fans that couldn’t make the convention will have to wait for an official release of the trailer. We’re here today to bring you the shots from the trailer that you may not have seen already. Spoilers for the trailer below (not really spoilers for the movie as it’s all part of the trailer)
Star Wars Celebration Europe was this past weekend and we got a whole bunch of new information from Rogue One, Rebels and future movies like the Han Solo movie and Episode VIII. Lets unpack what we learned! As always spoilers abound.
There has plenty coming out of Star Wars Celebration Europe and it looks like we’ll get the trailer tonight for Rogue One. For now, we have an awesome panel discussion and a sizzle reel! There are some spoilers and a MAJOR SPOILER at the end, so beware. more “Sizzle one more time: Rogue One panel and sizzle reel!”
It’s interesting to compare the Force-powers that are used by Jedi in the Prequel trilogy compared to the Original Trilogy. On the whole, Jedi are more aggressive in their moves in the prequels. Force-pushes all over the place, throwing lightsabers into enemies. When we look at Luke in the OT, apart from a few Force-chokes, Luke seems to stick to Yoda’s rule that a “Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack”.
What kind of Force-powers will Luke have in Episode VIII? Will it be the same old stuff that we saw in the OT, or will he do some new and amazing stuff? Let’s take a look at all the rumors we have about Luke, see if there are any patterns in the Force-powers that he is rumored to have. As usual, there are possible SPOILERS for Episode VIII, so proceed with caution.
Greetings, Star Wars fans! It’s been a bit of a quiet week for sure in Star Wars world. We feel like we are kind of scraping the bottom of the barrel on this one, but we’ve managed to put together a few bits of news to hold you till next week when the floodgates of Star Wars Celebration open. We may even do an article on Friday when something big hits. Let’s get to the news:
As more and more Rogue One news comes out we have more and more questions. Today we’re talking about whatever happened to the Death troopers in the Original Trilogy or why don’t we see U-wings in ANH and other questions like that. Lets look at what we have that is new and why they possibly never show up again.
Hello, Star Wars fans! Welcome back to another edition of SpoiledBlueMilk. You know, I’m still reeling from the news that a Clone Wars character, Saw Gerrera, will be in Rogue One! This realization opened up a lot of possibilities in terms of what other characters will be in Rogue One. I want to take a moment and contemplate a few recent revelations about characters that may show up in Rogue One and further connect this movie to Star Wars TV and movies. Potential spoilers below, so proceed with caution.
Happy 4th of July to our American readers. July the 4th be with you. We’ve got a few pieces of info on Star Wars Rogue One and Episode VIII. Not too many major spoilers here, but tread carefully.
Greetings, Star Wars fans! We’ve had a relatively quiet week this week compared to last week when we got a huge onslaught of Rogue One news and information. It all came in the form of several EW articles. We’re on the verge of what is expected to be a ton of new information at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration starting July 15th. This new information will be for both Episode VIII and Rogue One, as well as for Rebels and I’m sure a lot of other Star Wars properties. Nevertheless, there are still a few items that we found out this week on Rogue One, and many of them may give us some clues as to what news we can look forward to at Celebration.
Vader, if there is a more iconic original villain in movie history you’d hard pressed to prove it. The all black costume combined with the height and the voice of James Earl Jones makes him menacing in a way that is next to indescribable. The calm controlled evil Vader showed throughout the original trilogy made him a next to irredeemable character that eventually was redeemed. Now we know we get more live action Vader in Rogue One and I couldn’t be giddier or more apprehensive. Today we’ll explore what we think we’re getting and why, if we’re right, it will only help the legend of Vader.
Greetings, Star Wars fans! Today, we now have some new information on Rogue One that we can actually sink our teeth into. What a difference. We’ve been through some ups and downs with rumors of reshoots etc, so it feels so good to actually have something concrete. One of the characters that we now have enough to start saying something about is Chirrut Imwe, played by Donnie Yen. Let’s take a look at the latest info on this character quite unlike anything we’ve seen in Star Wars.
I woke up today wishing I had more Rogue One news and then boom Anthony Breznican at Ew.com uploads this story about this week’s cover all about Rogue One. Then about two hours later he drops another article with 10 new characters that names 9 and leaves us wondering about Forrest Whitaker’s identity, who is someone we know which we find out about in his last article of the day! Lets jump into it and look at what Anthony has brought us today(more to come too!)
Greetings, Star Wars, fans! Not much in news this week, we only have three stories of note. So let’s get into it and go from there:
Leia has always been one of my favorite characters, not just in Star Wars but overall. I get excited about seeing Leia on screen again and it was one of my personal high points to see her in TFA. Over the past two months we’ve gotten a couple of reports of what Leia will be up to in VIII and I want to explore what that means for the character, the Resistance and the film itself. Potential SPOILERS for Episode VIII below, so read on at your own discretion.
Greetings, Star Wars fans! Most of you know that kyber crystals are the heart of lightsabers. These special crystals amplify energy, thus producing the plasma blade. They are also deeply rooted in Jedi tradition. Luminara Unduli went as far as to say to her apprentice Barriss Offee about the crystals:
“The crystal is the heart of the blade. The heart is the crystal of the Jedi. The Jedi is the crystal of the Force. The Force is the blade of the heart. All are intertwined. The crystal, the blade, the Jedi. You are one.” (Star Wars: Clone Wars Chapter 14)
But what role have kyber crystals played in the broader Star Wars galaxy? Read on for more, and beware of potential SPOILERS for Rogue One and Episode VIII.
Another week and its another recap. This week doesn’t have anything mind blowing but we do start to see the fabric of Rogue One and Episode VIII coming together.
One of the most troubling moments in Revenge of the Sith was the death of Padme. In the movie, we are only given the following:
Medically, she’s fine. We don’t know why, she’s lost the will to live
So why did she die exactly? For many people this part of the movie seemed a bit like a cop-out, and were still left wondering how she died exactly. Anakin as Vader is later troubled to find out she died. He was convinced that she was alive and could “feel” that she was alive. So what happened? Was it the Force-choke? Was it a broken heart? Let’s examine some of the theories.
On April 25th 2014 Lucasfilm relegated all of the previous Expanded Universe(EU) books to the Legends name and would no longer produce books that followed the timeline and canon it had established. This was done for obvious reasons as they were planning a sequel trilogy and other movies and could not creatively be held back by the efforts of dozens of different writers over 3 decades. There are however a small and dedicated group of fans that have rejected the loss of the stories as being “canon” and want Lucasfilm to continue the other timeline as it should be the real story. Today we are going to examine their claims, ask if canon even matters and what it all means going forward. more “Legends, EU, Canon, and the Future”
Greetings Star Wars fans! It’s been one heck of a week for rumors about Rogue One. We already covered the rumor about the delays and why we think it isn’t a big deal. Now today, I want to talk about other aspects of Rogue One, in particular the ending and possible cameo rumors that have emerged. Possible spoilers are ahead, so continue at your own risk!
Earlier this week a paper that shall go unnamed released a report of panic and confusion concerning Rogue One and reshoots. This is just latest report concerning future blockblusters and reshoots to be blown out of proportion and using a tiny bit of correct information to make things seem dire and it all seems to be related to generating clicks and views. Why are we letting them manipulate us, what is clickbait and what sources should we listen to?
Good day to you, Star Wars fans! We took yesterday off for Memorial day, but we decided you still deserved a recap so we scoured the reputable sources for all the news you need to know, and you might have missed last week! Beware there be spoilers ahead. Let’s get to it!
With continued leaks from Ireland on Episode VIII and publication leaks for Rogue One its easy to forget that there is another Star Wars property that is in production and will be on screen this year, Rebels. Because of this many people have overlooked the interview with Dave Filoni where he says he would want Ewan to voice Obi-wan if they bring him in. The question is when and why they would bring in Obi-wan and is it a good idea? Lets explore!
There is no question that Yoda is one of the most beloved characters in the Star Wars saga. The little green Jedi is one of the wisest and most powerful ever, and also tells us you can’t judge a book by its cover. I must admit, I’ve always been a fan of Yoda ever since I can remember, going back to ESB when I was 6 years old. Back then, I had a more vivid memory of the Yoda action figure than the actual movie, but still Yoda was a cool little dude. In this spoiler-laden speculation article we ask the question, what role will Yoda play in Episode VIII?
Hello there, Star Wars fans! It’s time for another round of the Weekly Star Wars Recap. Hard to believe, but this is our 40th week doing this, so we’re approaching one year pretty quickly. It’s actually been a pretty intense week for leaks and rumors on the latest Star Wars feature film projects. As usual, spoilers ahead, so stop reading if you want to avoid them! So, without further adieu, let’s get to it!
The Knights of Ren began as one of the most intriguing aspects of The Force Awakens. When JJ originally told us about the existence of the Knights, eyes widened across the Star Wars fan community. Who are they? Where did they come from? While we can’t answer these questions today, we can say how and where the Knights seem to come to an end. Spoilers after the jump.
Over the weekend Maryann Brandon(Editor of The Force Awakens) said in a with UCSB Script to Screen that according to George Lucas Obi-wan was merely average in terms of power in the Force. This leads to many questions What is the difference between power and ability and how did he beat Anakin who was considered the most powerful Jedi?
Happy Monday, fellow Star Wars fans! Things are really starting to feel like Summer. We just had George Lucas’ 72nd birthday on May 1, and we’re rapidly approaching the the 39th anniversary of Star Wars on this coming May 25th. So what happened this past week? We’ve got some really hot of the press updates about filming for Episode VIII. Therefore, as usual, be warned of possible SPOILERS below. Let’s get into it:
With the recent release of Bloodline, we have gotten numerous bits of information about the galaxy far far away in the times leading up to The Force Awakens. Among some of the most impactful are some ideas that pertain to Rey and her origins. Let’s explore some of the ramifications here for a bit. As usual, consider yourself warned as the following contains spoilers for the novel Bloodline.
While the rest of the Star Wars world has focused on Rian Johnson’s contributions to Bloodline, I have continued to ponder what the First Order’s plans to take over galaxy were. I mentioned this in the article on Bloodline we did last week and I it has been on my mind ever since. The more I think about the tiny hints in the book the more I realize that the First Order had plans that much more Machiavellian than we ended up seeing in The Force Awakens. Stop reading now to avoid spoilers from Bloodline.
Greetings, Star Wars Fans! May the 4th has come and gone, and so has Revenge of the sixth. Holy crap, we’re almost half-way to June. more “Weekly Recap #38: May 9th 2016”
Lets start off with a warning, this will be a spoiler filled article on the novel Bloodline, so if you have’t read it and don’t want to read spoilers then run away now lil children. Still here? Then consider yourself warned. Last Friday we did an article reviewing what we expected to see in Bloodline and how it would relate. I think we did pretty well, though there were also a few new pieces of information I didn’t expect.
Happy Star Wars Day, Star Wars fans! What a year we’ve had since the last one. It’s also been somewhat decent of a week for leaks and news. This is the first time, that I can remember, that we’ve had multiple lines of evidence connecting around one singular item. Once we reach a critical mass of information about a Star Wars film, then the theories start flying fast and furious.
