‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Tackles One of the Greatest ‘Clone Wars’ Threats With “Battle Scars”

This article contains spoilers for the Star Wars: The Bad Batch episode “Battle Scars.”  Since we last saw them, the Bad Batch (Dee Bradley Baker) and Omega (Michelle Ang) have been miserably pulling jobs for Cid (Rhea Perlman). Since they (deliberately) botched their assignment on Corellia , they aren’t on her good side and she deducts creds on their expenses, one that hilariously includes Wrecker’s and Omega’s routine purchase of the popcorn-ish Mantell Mix. Their snack-buying after a missio...

‘Indiana Jones 5’ Could Feature Flashbacks With a Younger Indy During World War II

Indiana Jones 5 is currently filming in the U.K., and the first set pics found their way online over the weekend. While it’s always important to remember that out-of-context set pics don’t represent the final film, these early images do give us a hint of what to expect in the James Mangold-directed sequel.

J.J. Abrams Seems to Admit New ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy Would Have Benefited From More Planning

That means fans were left with a trilogy that felt a little disjointed, and a recent interview with J.J. Abrams seems to imply that he agrees the new Star Wars trilogy would have benefited from plotting all ...
