ILM Explores the Making of the Razor Crest in a New Mandalorian Featurette

ILM Explores the Making of the Razor Crest in a New Mandalorian Featurette The Child (a.k.a. Baby Yoda) may have stolen the spotlight from the title character throughout The Mandalorian’s first season. However, if it weren’t for the series’ true unsung hero, the Razor Crest, they never would have crossed paths in the first place. Mando’s ship certainly saw a lot of action last year, and it’s mostly thanks to the talented crew at ILM. Not surprisingly, a lot of work went into designing the bou...

‘Star Wars: The High Republic’ Unveils a Brand New Lightsaber From a More “Civilized Age”

As Obi-Wan Kenobi says, lightsabers are “elegant weapons for a more civilized age” — so what exactly did they look like during that civilized age?

‘Star Wars: The High Republic’ Details Revealed: First Story is a Race Against Time, and the New Villains Sound Especially Dangerous

Early this year, Lucasfilm finally pulled back the curtain on a mysterious project they’d been working on which was codenamed “Project Luminous.” The company announced Star Wars: The High Republic, a medium-spanning storytelling initiative comprised of books, comics, and potentially even video games, TV shows, and movies.
