Star Wars Battlefront II E3 Reveal

Weirdest Characters in 'Star Wars Legends' Canon
With Star Wars: The Last Jedi fast approaching, it is clear that the Star Wars universe will be expanding and growing in the next years to come. However, for many growing up in the 80s and 90s in the aftermath of Return of the Jedi, the future of the Galaxy Far, Far Away looked far less than glamorous.
New 'Star Wars' Trailer 'The Last Jedi' Is Released
Star Wars fans have been anticipating the release of the new The Last Jedi trailer since the rolling credits of The Force Awakens appeared on the big screen. Unfortunately, Disney took their time and they made us wait – more than one year –for the trailer. Fortunately, we had Rogue One and a few Untitled Han Solo Film photographs released. All I have to say is, thank goodness Disney didn't wait until May The Fourth to release the trailer. I wouldn't be able to go another month until knowing who The Last Jedi is (or, are). Since The Force Awakens premiered in December 2015, fans have speculated over the lineage of Rey, the fate of Han, the mysteries surrounding Luke, and who the hell the Last Jedi is (Is Jedi plural? Is it Luke? Is it Rey?).Natasha Sydor
15 Characters Han Solo Met in 'Star Wars Legends Canon' (Even if He Didn't Need to)
Han Solo remains the most popular character in the Star Wars saga, so much so that Disney is funding a film all about Han Solo's life before A New Hope. This isn't the first time, of course, that Han Solo's story expanded beyond the limits of the core films. Back in the days of the Legends canon, tons of novels and comics outlined and expanded upon Han Solo's adventures and escapades.

Best 'Star Wars' Han Solo And Chewbacca Books
Every Star Wars fan knows the famous duo of Han Solo and Chewbacca well. While Han Solo was a human smuggler known for being a member of the Rebel Alliance and later the New Republic, he originates from the planet Corellia where he was orphaned at an early age. Taken by the pirate Garris Shrike to serve with his crew, Han was treated cruelly, which is the main reason he became a smuggler. After entering the Imperial Academy at Carida where he served with distinction, his life changed when he refused to beat a Wookiee named Chewbacca with a neuronic whip and the two eventually fled from the imperials together. That was the moment Han Solo and Chewbacca bonded, and Chewbacca became his partner in crime as his life debt to Solo. The adventures of Han Solo and Chewbacca are present in many Star Wars books. Here are our picks for the best Han Solo and Chewbacca books.
Behind the Scenes of 'Star Wars'
Carrie Fisher is the beautiful Princess Leia, the woman who inspires the rebellion against the evil Galactic Empire. Carrie is the main female in the Star Wars movies up until A New Hope, where she still maintains her presence. When Star Wars was first released, this was quite an achievement. In the previous two biggest-ever money-making films of the 70s, The Godfather and Jaws, women had very little to say about things. But in Star Wars Carrie, tough-willed and rarin' to go, is right in there with the men. In February 1978, Fisher and some other Star Wars fan favorites sat down with Roy Pickard of PhotoPlay magazine to discuss their experience on the set of the well-known space opera.
The Easiest DIY Star Wars Gifts
Some people would call me crafty. Those people are not technically correct. Can I safely use scissors and Elmer’s glue? Yes, I can. Can I crochet an entire set of miniature Star Wars figurines? Ha ha ha. No. I cannot. But that doesn’t mean that I can’t make some pretty rad DIY Star Wars gifts for all my kinfolk when the holiday season is coming around. My goals when selecting winners for this list were twofold: first, nothing should cost more than $20, and second, nothing should take more than an hour or two of hands-on crafting time. While you might spend a little bit more or take slightly longer depending on your material sourcing and crafting abilities, I hope I’ve hit pretty close to the mark. Grab your supplies and if you’re feeling a little lackluster about your DIY abilities, just remember: do, or do not. There is no try.Sarah Quinn

The Young & the Jedi - Remember Folks, 'Star Wars' Is a Soap Opera
The fantastic force of Star Wars is back in our collective awareness in a really big way—like it or not. After Disney purchased the film rights from George Lucas in 2013—along with his legendary special FX company ILM—the house of mouse fast tracked new movies and various spin-offs. As genre fans now fully absorb the respected saga’s new characters and ramifications and try to embrace The Force Awakens, the newest chapter to the Lucas sci-fi universe, old questions and observations on the pop-culture saga emerge. Why is this multi-billion dollar global franchise so preoccupied with family dysfunction? Does Luke Skywalker have more in common with Luke from General Hospital? As Rogue One looms on the horizon, can we expect more of the same?Will Stape
