Cool Stuff: ‘The Mandalorian’ Dark Troopers Are Activated as a New Hot Toys Figure

The Mandalorian transformed the Child, better known to everyone around the world as Baby Yoda, into merchandise giant. The little guy was turned into everything from plushes to action figures to hoodies, and even a Chia Pet. But now that he’s been officially named Grogu, the shine has worn off, and fans need the next cool thing to adorn their shelves. That’s where Moff Gideon’s Dark Troopers come into play, and Hot Toys is releasing an intimidating 1/6 scale action figure of the formidable droi...

New ‘Star Wars’ Sequel Trilogy Posters Put Rey in the Center of the Frame

Last year, Australia-based artist Florey released a series of Star Wars posters through Bottleneck Gallery which focused on Luke Skywalker from the original trilogy.

Liam Neeson Says He Would Bring Back Qui-Gon for Obi Wan Series

Liam Neeson Says He’d Be Up to Bring Back Qui-Gon for Obi Wan Series Liam Neeson doesn’t say much, but when he does he speaks volumes, especially when talking about anything Star Wars related. In this case, the man gave a rather brief affirmative when asked if he would be willing to return as Jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn in the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series. “Sure, I’d be up for that, yeah,” Neeson told Collider.

Let’s Say a Proper Goodbye to Bib Fortuna, Lackey to Jabba the Hutt and Unlikely Offscreen Crime Lord

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide , where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) Things move fast these days, and the season finale of The Mandalorian already feels like old news, despite only arriving a few weeks ago. Nevertheless, not everything that happened has been talked to death yet. Luke Skywalker? Yes. The Book of Boba Fett speculation? Yes. The death of Bib Fortuna? Not as much. Time to fix that! Which Character is This Aga...

‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2 Finale’s Biggest Moment Wasn’t in The Script

The Mandalorian season 2 finale dropped a humdinger on fans with the appearance of a familiar (digitally de-aged) character, whose face sent everyone into a spiral of nostalgia. But how did Lucasfilm and Disney+ pull off that reveal without it leaking before the episode aired? By not including it in the script at all, to the point that cast and crew weren’t even aware of the surprise cameo. Spoilers for The Mandalorian season 2 follow. In a recent interview with Drunk 3PO, Gina Carano, who p...

Mark Hamill Thanks Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni For His Mandalorian Cameo

Mark Hamill Thanks Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni For His Mandalorian Cameo After The Rise of Skywalker, no one expected Mark Hamill to reprise his role as Luke Skywalker again. Regardless, The Mandalorian season 2 finale brought Hamill back to Star Wars in a big way. Thanks to the magic of CGI, young Luke saved the day and took custody of Grogu. It also gave fans a rare chance to see Jedi Master Luke in his prime, as he tore through Dark Troopers on his way to the bridge. ...

This post contains major spoilers for The Mandalorian and Star Wars:  The Last Jedi.  For anyone with a passing familiarity with the timeline of The Mandalorian and its relationship to the rest of the Star Wars canon, it wasn’t a hard leap to guess that Luke Skywalker would be the Jedi to answer Grogu’s (or as you better know him, Baby Yoda) call from the temple on Tython.  When he finally did appear on the season finale of The Mandalorian, he brought with him an action scen...

Here’s How Darth Vader Could Fit Into the ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ TV Series – and Why It Makes Sense in Canon

During the massive, four-hour Disney Investor presentation last week, Lucasfilm was able to present its upcoming slate of projects. During that time, they were able to make a number of announcements. So many announcements were made that we’re still sifting through the ramifications of them. The Star Wars universe is going to look very different in a few years, and that’s not a bad thing. One of the things I love about Star Wars  is how malleable it is, and how we’re able to derive new c...

Here’s What George Lucas Originally Pitched for the Backstory of Anakin Skywalker

Back in July 1981, few people were privy to the idea that was starting to form in George Lucas‘ mind: an origin story for the iconic Star Wars villain Darth Vader. But at least three people learned the details at a story conference for Return of the Jedi, in which the Star Wars maestro revealed to Richard Marquand, Howard Kazanjian, and Lawrence Kasdan his vision of Anakin Skywalker’s origins. Lucas’ pitch for Anakin Skywalker’s original backstory, which is revealed in the new book The Star War...

‘The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special’ Shows Us a Future Beyond ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

When it was announced that there would be a new Star Wars Holiday Special, everyone scratched their heads and said, “Well, this is sort of cool, I guess.” The original Star Wars Holiday Special, released in 1978 and aired only once because of how utterly awful it was, has lived on in bootlegs and become something of an ironic favorite.
