'Star Wars' Fan Finds Copy Of Cancelled 'Battlefront III' Game
Star Wars: Battlefront III is one of those things lost to time and what might have been if George had not sold Lucasfilm to Disney. The third entry in the most beloved Star Wars game series would have been the next big update in the first-person shooter story. However, it was not to be. Everyone thought the game was lost in the chaos of the sale of Lucasfilm (and by extension LucasArts) to Disney. However, recent development revealed that the game may not be lost completely. Something had been unearthed.
'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Trailer Gives Us First Look At Darth Vader
With the release of the official trailer for Obi-Wan Kenobi on May 4th, we have been given some exciting first looks at our favorite villain in the Star Wars universe. Of course, it is none other than the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, Lord Vader. A fan favorite since 1977 during the opening moments of A New Hope, Vader has captivated fans for over thirty years. It is no surprise that Disney has been giving sparse details about his appearance in the new show streaming later this month. But what role will he play in the show given what we have seen of the former Jedi Knight and current Sith Lord?

How 'Kenobi' Can Explain Where Obi-Wan's Nickname Came From
One of the major reasons I loved Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was its ability to re-contextualize A New Hope right from the opening crawl. The crawl mentions rebel spies winning their first battle against the evil Galactic Empire and how spies stole secret plans for their ultimate weapon, the Death Star. For me, watching the opening scene of A New Hope directly after watching Rogue One is maybe my favorite Star Wars thing to do because they connect so well.

5 Fictional Planets Similar to Coruscant
A topic you’ve likely heard about is Ecumenopolis. Ecumenopolis, from the Greek οἰκουμένη, ecumene 'world,' and πόλις, polis 'city,' plural ecumenopolises or ecumenopoleis, is the hypothetical concept of a planet-wide city. When most Star Wars fans think of the concept, they think of Coruscant, the bustling metropolis, capital of the Galactic Republic and the Empire, and center of the galaxy. As you can guess from the title, the entire planet was one big city, and we got to see all of it in the Expanded Universe and the prequel trilogy. It was demoted to just another planet by the time the New Republic came around, though it likely remained at least somewhat important. But is Coruscant the only one of its kind? As you could probably guess from the title, of course not, there are plenty of other ecumenopolises in science fiction. In fact, we’re gonna show some of them to you! Here is a list of five fictional planets that inspired, were inspired by, or are just similar to the capital planet of the galaxy far, far away.
'Star Wars' Confirms This Sith Apprentice Was Not Going To Be In 'Obi-Wan Kenobi'
The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many cameos, some considered to be unnatural. However, it may not be that way in Maul’s case, at least according to Director Deborah Chow in her interview with Total Film:
What These 9 Lightsaber Colors Say About Your Personality
There’s a prevailing belief that certain colors can impact your mood or say something about your personality. While the science is, let’s say, open for interpretation, it’s an intriguing subject. There's certainly some colors that evolutionary psychologists argue can influence our mood. There's a reason why red is a dominant color for Valentine's Day. Literature is full of moods equated with color. Feeling blue. Seeing red. There's no doubt that colors have a profound impact on our lives.
Why Right Now Is A Great Time To Watch 'Star Wars: Rebels'
Most of the Star Wars fanbase can agree on very few things, but they all agree that Dave Filoni is no phony baloney. With Obi-Wan Kenobi set to come out May 27th, The Bad Batch who knows when, and Ahsoka not too far off in the future, there is only one show in the franchise that scratches all those itches. That show is Star Wars: Rebels. We see the Ghost crew develop from a band of misfits into a family for four seasons. We also see both Ahsoka Tano and Obi-Wan Kenobi; actually, Ahsoka has a pretty significant role. In this article, we would like to give you a few reasons why Rebels is worth your attention or reexamination if you've seen it. As a fair warning, there will be some major spoilers for Rebels ahead.
