10 things You Never Knew About Mustafar
Mustafar is one of the most iconic planets in the Star Wars universe. It was the site of one of the greatest and most impactful battles in the saga. It was the location of Darth Vader’s castle, and before that, it was the home of the remaining members of the Separatist leaders. It was also their place of demise, but I digress. There are a ton more interesting facts about Mustafar that most people probably don’t realize.
'The Bad Batch' Cameo That Took Me Out Of The Premiere
Let me preface this by saying that I enjoyed most of The Bad Batch premiere episode "Aftermath." It shows the potential of this series and how the addition of Omega can ground the squad, keeping the series from becoming a monotonous action-fest. However, the beginning had me at the edge of my seat, and not for the reasons one might hope. It took me out of the narrative because the way that it was executed (no pun intended) was bothering me.
Dave Filoni Gives A Cryptic Update On 'The Mandalorian' Season 3

10 Things You Don't Know About Mark Hamill
Mark Hamill is an absolute class act and one of the nicest celebrities to ever grace the silver screen. He has shown to be extremely grateful to Star Wars fans, never missing an opportunity to surprise them and even fellow celebrity fans.

10 Things You Never Knew About Carrie Fisher
Carrie Fisher, gone too soon on December 27, 2016, is remembered by fans around the world as Princess Leia from the Star Wars saga. She was a role model to many, a damsel who could do her own rescuing from her distress. Outside the galaxy far, far away, in our world, she was an inspiration. She spoke up publicly about mental health, a topic that is deemed as taboo and deserves to be discussed more openly. While not usually known as a comedy actress, she used her unique sense of humor to discuss her own experiences with bipolar disorder and drug addiction. We will always remember her witty banter on screen with Han Solo, calling him a "stuck up, half witted, scruffy-looking, nerfherder!" We will also remember her off screen words that will remain in our heart.
'Star Wars: Darth Vader' Just Revealed A Disturbing Secret About Sith Lightsaber Crystals
Until 2016, it was canon that the Kyber crystals for Sith lightsabers were created artificially, with the dark side user putting the ingredients into an oven and applying his or her will onto them until they were formed and baked into the crystal. This changed with the novel Ahsoka by E. K. Johnston, where the term “bleeding” was first used with regard to lightsaber crystals.
Thoughts and Theories On 'Star Wars: The Bad Batch'
Star Wars and Dave Filoni made their triumphant return to animation with The Bad Batch on Disney+. It premiered on May 4th, and I can't think of a better time to launch a show like this. The show takes us back to everything we loved about Dave Filoni's original The Clone Wars series, but it adds enough new material to tell a new story. Before I go any further into the first episode, I want to clarify that there will be some spoilers for the episode ahead. It may only be the first episode, but there are some moments that might be better experienced with fresh eyes.
