Taika Waititi Updates Fans On His 'Star Wars' Project
Over the last couple of years, Taika Waititi has become the darling of not only the genre world but Hollywood overall. Starting with his Oscar nomination for the film JoJo Rabbit and then his time spent working the Marvel Cinematic Universe by directing Thor: Ragnarok and this year's Thor: Love and Thunder then his turn as Blackbeard the Pirate in Our Flag Means Death it seems that anything he touches turns to gold. During season 1 of The Mandalorian Taika directed the season finale and voiced the IG assassin droid who despite being a robot still managed to give a heartfelt performance. It was during this stint that Disney and Lucasfilm decided to give Taika a shot at his own Star Wars property much to great fanfare from the Star Wars community. But since the announcement mystery, like most Star Wars projects, has surrounded the project.
The Best Side Characters In 'The Clone Wars'
Star Wars: The Clone Wars gave us many great Anakin and Obi-Wan moments, and even introduced Ahsoka Tano, who is now a beloved character in Star Wars. It expanded on what the prequels started, and even had a different POV at the end of the show that coincided with Revenge of the Sith. The show mainly focused on the Jedi, and characters we were already familiar with, thanks to the movies, but what about those on the side? Many characters in The Clone Wars were introduced, and some were only supposed to be in a few episodes, but are now beloved in the fandom. These characters expand on the galaxy we already know, and give it more meaning. Some are forgotten, but some are favorites, and have even appeared in live action. These are the best side characters in The Clone Wars.
How Did Moff Gideon Get The Darksaber?
I hope all of you have been taking deep breaths and hydrating during this golden age of Star Wars. Earlier this month of June was Star Wars Celebration and we were gifted numerous stories and announcements for exciting projects coming down the pipeline.

Why Shadows Of The Empire Is So Beloved To Star Wars Fans
Shadows of the Empire began life when, in an attempt to reinvigorate the franchise prior to the cinematic release of the special editions, Lucasarts met with Expanded Universe author Steve Perry to develop a story set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The original idea had been originally discussed during a meeting between Lucasfilm publishing director Lucy Autrey Wilson and Bantam Books Editor Lou Aronica, where a multimedia crossover was proposed, encompassing the disparate license holders of Star Wars, and leading to the prospect of a “movie project without the movie”, that Shadows of the Empire would eventually become.
A Psychological Profile On Obi-Wan Kenobi
Everyone had high expectations for Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney+. However, one thing I wasn't expecting was seeing so much of myself in the show. I have struggled with mental illness for years, specifically depression. It's uncanny how well Ewan McGregor captures what I've gone through.
Ron Howard Says This About His Daughter In New Interview
Ron Howard is one of the most well-known directors of all time for his work in classic movies such as Cocoon, Willow, Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind, The Da Vinci Code, and Frost/Nixon. His Hollywood career, which spanned more than fifty years, began with acting roles in The Andy Griffith Show (1960- 1968) and Happy Days (1974- 1980) before he transitioned to primarily directorial roles. It was not until 2018 that Howard began work on Star Wars, one of the most lucrative franchises in movie history. He replaced Phil Lord and Christopher Miller as director of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Nowadays, though, Ron might not even be the most beloved Star Wars director in his own family.
Why Killing The Entire Rogue One Crew Was Important To The Overall Story
Rogue One is one of the most daring pieces of Star Wars content. The direct prequel to A New Hope differs from the trilogies surrounding it but is one of the best and most essential pieces of content to come out despite its tone and finality. Of course, most fans would have preferred at least one member of the main group to survive, but if they did, it would’ve ruined the overall quality of the narrative.
Darth Vader Reunites With An Old Friend From ‘The Phantom Menace’
There's little that can tug at my heartstrings more than Darth Vader facing his past. Since the reveal of the iconic villain's true identity in The Empire Strikes Back, Anakin Skywalker has been a torturously yet brilliantly tragic character throughout his entire story. From The Phantom Menace to Revenge of the Sith and beyond, Anakin shows how the lure of the dark side and a selfish hunger for power can turn a hero with no fear into the most feared monster in the galaxy. What's even more devastating is seeing Vader confront the people he used to see as friends and allies.
'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Head Writer Explains The Importance Of Continuity
On Friday, the head writer for Obi-Wan Kenobi sat down with IndieWire to talk about the show at length. Joby Harold had a lot of exciting things to say about the show itself and the process behind making it. One of the most interesting threads throughout the whole interview was the idea that the show was very limited in how characters could interact with one another, and the directions the story could proceed in. The canon and fans were both factors in the writing of the show according to Harold.
