D23 attendees got a treat yesterday, along with those standing by on the internet. A new “behind the scenes” video has been released by Lucasfilm. Let’s take a look at what this tells us about the movie.
The Sith under Palpatine had a goal, destruction of the Jedi and to rule the Galaxy. The First Order under Snoke has a goal, destruction of the Jedi and to Rule the Galaxy. In the old EU the darkside seemed to have the same goal 1000 years before ANH and few hundred years after. The question is why do they want to rule the Galaxy? Why did the First Order decide to leave the Unknown regions and attempt to take over? Lets see what we know and if we can figure out the motivations that drive Snoke and the First Order.

Monsters have been a recurring part of the Star Wars saga. From the “dianoga” from A New Hope, to the “bigger fish” of The Phantom Menace, our heroes have repeatedly encountered large dangerous creatures. The Last Jedi is certainly no different, and several details have emerged about a critical scene. Let’s take a moment to discuss, spoilers below.
After a weekend of people questioning whether Collin Trevorrow would be the right guy for the job on Episode IX Lucasfilm fired Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from the Untitled Han Solo movie. This is shocking on several levels and we are going to breakdown what we know so far and give a few opinions.
Another week another recap! Not a whole of breaking news here but we did get some confirmation of earlier news. Spoilers ahead!
We’ve had a rush of new info on some new guards in The Last Jedi. Let’s take a look at everything we know. Spoilers and speculation ahead!
For years the old EU was the only new Star Wars we got, then the Prequels happened! And then it was back to the EU, which was then wiped clean with the exception of The Clone Wars series once Disney acquired Lucasfilm. This was done for several reason which we discussed here. It was a good call without most of the reasons and today I’m going to discuss why the New EU is so much better.
Happy summer, Star Wars fans! We’ve got a lot of news coming in from Battlefront II and The Last Jedi and beyond. Let’s get right to it! Remember spoilers ahead.
In the season 2 episode entitled “Shroud of Darkness”, Ezra chooses his path by reciting the following Lothal rhyme:
Loth-rat, Loth-cat, Loth-wolf, run. Pick a path and all is done.
Is there any bigger meaning to this saying, or is it just a funny rhyme? And what exactly is a Loth-wolf, and how does it play into Season 4? Read on for more.

With the Vanity Fair article last week we got a few new shots of Luke Skywalker and one thing was conspicuously missing, his lightsaber.

Potential Spoilers ahead.
Ever since way back in 2015 when we heard that Benicio del Toro will play a character in The Last Jedi we’ve been dying to find out just what he will be doing in the film. Let’s take a moment to review what we know, and what we think we know about this character.
Another week, another bunch of leaks confirmed by the Vanity Fair article and more. Let’s jump in and sort through what we learned, spoilers ahead.
As predicted by many this week Vanity Fair rolled out their Last Jedi issue. Yesterday we were treated to the cover of the magazine which included Kelly Marie Tran making her the FIRST Asian woman on the cover of Vanity Fair. It also included an unmasked Phasma along side Kylo Ren and General Hux. Today we have been treated to the their full length article on the movie and this article with tidbits from Pablo Hidalgo. We’re going to break down what we’ve learned and what we THINK it means. As always potential spoilers ahead.
With Han Solo filming, and The Last Jedi releasing more and more material, the news keeps coming in. Let’s take a moment to review the latest Star Wars movie news.
The Star Wars films have always upped the ante. When viewed in episodic order, the big climax at the end has always taken a bigger and bigger scale. From IV, V, VI, and VII we have gone from Death Star, to Death Star II, to StarKiller base. Where could we possibly go next? The answer might be right under our noses. Although this is a speculative article, there are possible spoilers as well, so be warned!
We are pretty much officially 8 months away from Episode VIII. The news is slightly lighter this week, but still some good pieces to chew on. Let’s get to it.
Doctor Aphra is probably one of the more intriguing new characters to the Star Wars universe, at least among those that we haven’t seen on screen. Let’s take a moment to contemplate how she could play into the sequel trilogy. Potential spoilers below.
In the immediate aftermath of the tragic passing of Carrie Fisher, the last thing we wanted to think about was what happens to Star Wars. Though that is what brought her into most of our lives, it was inconsequential to the loss a daughter, mother, friend, and to the many she helped by championing mental health advocacy. With Episode IX now having finished its first draft and time to come to terms with the loss we are going to look into how we think Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow will handle the loss of Carrie and what happens to the character of Leia.
Another week another recap and the news is really starting to come in. We’re actually getting images from The Last Jedi. Let’s jump right in and get to breaking it down, remember as always spoilers ahead.
The teaser trailer for The Last Jedi is full of surprises. We’ve no doubt been digging through images and clips for weeks trying to figure out what it all means! However, there is one thing that nobody has spotted yet. It just might be an easter egg that makes a subtle nod to the Star Wars Ring Theory. Read on for more.
There are many things that get blamed on Jar-Jar Binks. The dislike of the prequels from fans that saw all of them 4 or more times in the theater. The formation of Empire because of his call for emergency powers. If not that, then the entire saga as he is the true Dark lord of the Sith behind it all… None of it his fault.
It’s gonna be May….the Fourth be with you… Umm is there another meme/pun I can do? No? OK lets get to the news then. All the news you need to know, spoilers ahead!
We have been hearing about birds on Ahch-To for a while now and this week MakingStarWars.net gave us a bit more to work with. With Rebels showing convorees and now these new guys its got me thinking about why are birds or bird-like creatures are showing up in Star Wars and what the are all about.
Today we bring you a small article on one of our favorite characters:
Finn. We only got a glimpse of him in the trailer but that glimpse did reveal a few things. Lets look at what we can learn and how we think it will fit into the plot of The Last Jedi. Potential spoilers below, so beware!
Still reeling over Celebration? I know I am, I must have watched the teaser 100 times or more. Last week was probably the biggest week for Star Wars news in a long time. A long time. Fortunately the news just keeps coming! Lets jump into and warning spoilers ahead.
Lots of fans were shocked by the quote from Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi teaser trailer. In fact there is a strong possibility that Mark Hamill himself had this impression. Let’s take a moment to try and understand what it could mean.
It’s the Star Wars Celebration edition of the weekly recap. So a Celebration recap! Let get into it!
Holy intense feelings Batman! Ok we got the trailer we were waiting for and boy did it deliver. We’re going to break it down and give you our thoughts on what each scene is and means!
Last week on The Star Wars Show Andi and Anthony stressed that we would not want to miss the 40th anniversary panel. This has led to rampart speculation on what will be shown or discussed, from confirmation of Anakin in The Last Jedi to a slate released until 2030. I feel there’s only three options, a Last Jedi trailer, George Lucas showing up, or Obi-wan. Let’s talk about it.
Star Wars Celebration Orlando is this week! And with that rush of official news on the horizon the unofficial leaks have been pouring out. Lets jump into and remember spoilers ahead.
Wow its looking more and more like the flood gates are starting to open when it comes to The Last Jedi News. I can’t imagine how good its going to get after Celebration! Anyway spoilers ahead yada yada yada!
One of the oldest mysteries in Star Wars is the trick of the vanishing Jedi. Anyone who’s seen A New Hope knows that Obi Wan Kenobi mysteriously vanishes to become more powerful than Vader could possibly imagine. We’ve discussed this a bit before, but the Rebels Season 3 finale just may shed new light on how certain Force-users can do it.
Another week another Recap this time with 15% more newsy goodness. Let’s get to it.
Hello, Star Wars fans out there in the interwebs. We just got a slew of new reports regarding the Han Solo film. We’d like to take a moment and digest it. Here goes.
Another week and another batch of news! A few pieces of news this week, but we do get some insight to the early Rogue One script and a brief scene description from the upcoming The Last Jedi Trailer. It’s looking more and more likely that the trailer will drop at Celebration. As always Spoilers ahead.
Tomorrow we get the showdown this season has been teasing all year… Obi-wan vs Maul II: The Duel in the Dune Sea. The question is what happens. Will Obi-wan kill Maul (again), will Ezra deal the final blow, or will Maul walk/run away? Also will we see Luke? Let’s speculate.
We were originally told that the “spin-off” films are to be origin stories, but later learned Han Solo will not be. At least, Han Solo will probably establish the character that we see at the beginning of A New Hope. So the movie itself is a backstory. However, we still might expect that a backstory will be presented in the movie that describes how Han got to the place he is in the Han Solo movie. You might call this Han’s “back-backstory”. I’m going to take a moment and contemplate how and what might be be presented in the upcoming film.
These days, it can be tough to keep up with the latest Star Wars news. Right now, there is Rogue One coming out on Blu-ray, The Last Jedi due for reshoots this month, and Han Solo has begun filming. Let’s take a moment and catch ourselves up to the latest news in Star Wars. Spoilers ahead, so tread with caution.
