Star Wars Universe
The ultimate collection of movies, books, series, reviews, and more from the galaxy far, far away. May the Force be with you.
The Real Reason Yoda's Species Is So Rare
One of the biggest unanswered questions in the Star Wars universe is the actual species name of characters like Yoda and Grogu. There hasn't been a single piece of Star Wars media that has gone into it, which is odd. The rest of the species have names (Jedi Master Plo Koon is a Kel Dor, Aayla Secura is a Twi'lek, and so on), but Yoda's species has been left unknown, which is unusual for such an iconic character. It's not just unusual for the Star Wars universe, but even media in general. Pick an alien and it has a name. Even the Predator species from the films of the same title have names.
How 'Star Wars' Legends Fits Alongside 'Star Wars' Canon
When it comes to fandoms, there is one question that is asked more frequently than any other and across all intellectual properties: "is that canon?" Fans desire to separate the "true" events of their favorite fictional universe from the speculation, fan theories, and online rumors and nonsense. However, a disturbing trend has emerged as a result of this, specifically within the already schism-prone Star Wars fanbase. Great stories are being shelved and overlooked, simply because they fall under the de-canonized "Legends" banner. While the events of these stories no longer line up with the films, the rich character development, innovative new ideas, and bizarre new locales found within Legends content can and have shaped Star Wars for the better.
Gina Carano Found Out About Lucasfilm's Firing Through Social Media
When the news broke that The Mandalorian star Gina Carano had been fired, not many fans were surprised. It turns out, Carano herself may have been a little surprised since she learned about her own firing the same way most of us did; through a social media post. Carano had been the subject of much controversy over the last few months, but no official action had been taken until a definitive social media post by Lucasfilm saying the actress didn't currently, nor would she in the future, work for the studio.
Light of the Jedi
Star Wars: Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule is the first adult novel in the new Star Wars: The High Republic franchise. This media franchise will encompass adult and YA novels, comic series, short stories and a television series to stream on Disney+.
Will Lucasfilm Really Cast Sebastian Stan As Our Next Luke Skywalker?
The Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) franchises have many things in common. Disney owns both. They are guaranteed money-makers for the House of Mouse with ardent, loyal fans. Creative talent is also shared by the franchise juggernauts as well. Now, another deep-fake has added Sebastian Stan to the original Star Wars trilogy.
Boba Fett Takes On The Galaxy's Worst in 'War Of The Bounty Hunters'
Everyone’s favorite bounty hunter is back in a new comic series this May. The original Mandalorian bounty hunter (though perhaps not technically a Mandalorian), Boba Fett has made an explosive comeback in the last year, and it is every bit as awesome as we wanted it to be. First seen destroying stormtroopers in The Mandalorian season 2 and aiding in the rescue of baby-uh-Grogu, and now it is known that he will have an entire series coming to Disney+ at the end of the year. Needless to say, we have a lot of fun stories to come from our favorite Han Solo hunter, but we now know we will be getting even more Fett action. This time, however, it will be in the form of a massive comic crossover coming later this year, and it will be set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
Top 10 Jedi Ranked By Power
The guardians of peace and justice have protected the galaxy from darkness for over a thousand generations. Through wars against Sith, wars against Mandalorians, the Clone Wars, and even the Great Jedi Purge, their light has endured in the galaxy. This list will attempt to compile the most powerful beings to ever claim the title Jedi, both in canon and the stories of Legends, based upon their skill with a lightsaber, their knowledge of the Force, and notable Padawans or apprentices they taught.
'Star Wars' Reveals Darth Vader's Alternate Reality
Everyone knows how Anakin Skywalker becomes Darth Vader in the Star Wars saga, and how the Dark Lord of the Sith turns out in the end, but not every fan knows what happened between Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. However, in the comic series from Marvel, we have been seeing the journey of the Sith Lord between these movies.
'Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones' Greatest Mystery Was Never Solved In The Films
Without a doubt, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones changed the view of the Skywalker saga forever. The film introduced us to some of the greatest moments in Star Wars, like the first time we saw Master Yoda use a lightsaber, and the introduction to the blueprints of the Death Star. However, Attack of the Clones remains one of the least favorite films from the entire saga, mainly due to such arguments from fans as how the film has many forgotten plot details. The main one being the mystery of the creation of the clone army, and Master Sifo-Dyas’ disappearance. When the third and final installment of the prequels Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith was released, fans were surprised to see how none of that story arc continued in the film itself.
Gina Carano's Cara Dune Character Reportedly To Be Recast By Lucasfilm
Last week, it was made public that Disney and Lucasfilm had cut ties with Gina Carano, who had played Cara Dune in the Star Wars Disney+ series The Mandalorian. Her posts revealing her position on pronouns, voter fraud, and anti-mask beliefs had been upsetting people for months, culminating in the more recent post in which she seemed to compare being a Republican in the US to being a Jew in Nazi Germany. While she is no longer working with Disney and Lucasfilm, conservative news site The Daily Wire is giving Carano her own movie.
Mark Hamill Shares Little Known Moment He Shared With Carrie Fisher
Princess Leia is a staple of Star Wars, and that is due in no small part to Carrie Fisher. In the original film, she was introduced as a heroin whom people could look up to, subverting the damsel in distress trope once she is broken out of her prison cell on the Death Star. This was a character who would have a strong staying power in the vast tapestry that is the Star Wars franchise.
'Star Wars' Reveals Alternate Scene From 'The Last Jedi'
The Last Jedi, arguably the most controversial film of the Skywalker saga and the sequel trilogy. To some, it is the best Star Wars film, to others, it is the worst Star Wars film of all time. Love it or hate it, The Last Jedi left a huge impact on all Star Wars fans. There was the killing of Snoke, Luke’s Force projection, and there was the Canto Bight scene.
