The world is getting ready for another adventure from our favourite galaxy in the universe. Solo: A Star Wars Story is the latest in the spin-off anthology film series, following the escapades of a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover). Production of the film has been rife with turmoil, but in the competent hands of Oscar-winning director Ron Howard, we can hope for something spectacular.
Recently StarWars.com released an excerpt from the upcoming novelization of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Expanded Edition by Rae Carson, which will be expanding on the film in various ways going as far to include deleted scenes which we will no doubt see when the film releases on digital, blu-ray, and invevitbaly streaming on Disney+. This is very similar to what was done with Star Wars: The Last Jedi's novelization as it included some of the deleted scenes from the film, therefore canonizing those scenes. The author Rae Carson of the novelization even noted on Twitter that the novel she is writing is longer than the theatrically released film by a half hour.
My initial plunge into Han Solo : A Star Wars story did not go so well. I believe this paragraph encapsulates the drudgery. Following the green screened air locomotive chase, “This Star Wars story was more like someone put a camera on a bank robbery and simply followed the characters along. Stressful and dramatic for the perpetrators but not necessarily for those who are being spoon fed the feed. I struggled to stay awake and soon walked out."
He’s a smuggler, a scoundrel, and a pilot who doesn’t take orders well. He’s also brash, cocky, and a bit rough round the edges. Yet to those who know and love him best, Han Solo is also “the good guy” who would not necessarily be “in it for the money,” such as the many times the former scrumrat from Corellia has proven himself to be a great ally to rebels fighting for a better world in a galaxy far, far away.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is my favorite video game of all time. Hands down, there is no other. I'm sure many will disagree and that's fine, they're probably not as big of a Star Wars geek as I am. But, this game made my childhood.
The entire world is sitting waiting in anticipation for the next chapter of the Star Wars Saga. A staple of Pop Culture Star Wars was brought back in 2015 for the new generation to be apart of the magic.
After the first images of The Mandalorian Disney+ series were unveiled at the Star Wars Celebration, fans everywhere have been patiently waiting for the first trailer to arrive. And now that moment has finally come courtesy of the D23 fan expo. Over the past four decades, the Star Wars franchise has been a force to be reckoned with in the film industry, and has changed the way we look at movies forever. From the original trilogy to the prequels, to the modern Star Wars films, these epic space operas have solidified a legacy and fanbase that can be best described as the stuff of legends. And while they have had success with animated shows like The Clone Wars, Rebels and Resistance, their endeavors in live-action on the small screen are non-existent. That's right, one of the most dominant franchises in the galaxy has never attempted to enter the scripted TV world with all the live-action trimmings. Well, all of that is about to change, because this first teaser for The Mandalorian means that Star Wars is finally ready to make the leap into live-action TV.
As a die hard Star Wars fan I will always find new ways to learn more about the universe George Lucas created, including cosplaying as Princess Leia herself. It is one of my favorite things to do, and in order to add more to my portrayal of this great heroine, I read the book Leia, Princess of Alderaan by Claudia Gray.
A trailer has finally dropped for the second season of the Disney XD animated show Star Wars Resistance, which is being advertised as the final season. The first season was somewhat of a slow burn, but it culminated in high-stakes events toward the end, pushing the characters in a direction that will be intriguing to see play out.
