‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Breakdown: The Details and History That Enrich “Infested”

This article contains major spoilers for the latest episode of Star Wars: The Bad Batch. After returning to Ord Mantell from another mission for Cid, the Bad Batch find that Cid is no longer in control of her place.

New ‘Star Wars: Visions’ Details Reveal the Show’s Place on the Saga’s Timeline

Ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm, we’ve all had to make our peace with the fact that Star Wars would likely dominate the big screen and our television sets until the end of our lives (and almost certainly beyond that, too). Even the most hardcore fan would have to admit that the key to staving off franchise fatigue will be introducing fresh perspectives and original approaches, and that’s where Star Wars: Visions comes in. The animated anthology series is already shaping up to be one of the...

Sung Kang is About as Excited to Work on the ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ TV Series as You Would Be

Even though Star Wars isn’t churning out TV shows for Disney+ as fast as Marvel Studios, there’s still plenty to be excited about when it comes to the galaxy far, far away. Along with The Book of Boba Fett and the continuation of The Mandalorian on the horizon, the live-action side of Star Wars is bringing Ewan McGregor back as Obi-Wan Kenobi in his own TV show.

‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Makes a Promising Shift to Spotlight a ‘Rebels’ Origin Story in “Devil’s Deal”

The Bad Batch takes a bold story departure, rendering its eponymous Batch (Dee Bradley Baker) as a cameo in their own series. They surface at the 13-minute mark then peace out, while Crosshair is present as a supporting player carrying out the Empire’s bidding. Last week, “Common Ground” opened on another person’s story before passing the spotlight to the Bad Batch. The opening of “Common Ground” prepares the audience for the drastic shift in “Devil’s Deal” (directed by Steward Lee and written ...

‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Breakdown: The Details and History That Enrich “Devil’s Deal”

There are major spoilers here for the latest episode of Star Wars: The Bad Batch . This episode of Star Wars: The Bad Batch is unique in that it puts a focus on larger galactic events and the Bad Batch play only a tangential role (at least at this point.) Trouble brews on planet Ryloth, home to the Twi’lek people. They don’t take occupation well and rebelled against the Confederacy during the Clone Wars, fighting side-by-side with Jedi and clones.

‘The Book of Boba Fett’ Will Bring Back More Directors from ‘The Mandalorian’

The Book of Boba Fett is coming to Disney+ this Christmas and it’s bringing with it some notable directing alumni from The Mandalorian. We already knew that Robert Rodriguez would be executive producing the series and helming several episodes himself, but now the actor under Boba Fett’s helmet and armor, Temuera Morrison, has dropped the news that a few other directors will be returning to help film the bounty hunter’s adventures. Jon Favreau, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Dave Filoni Will Retur...

Brian De Palma Made Fun of The Force After the First Screening of ‘Star Wars’

Artists often show their friends and fellow creatives their work before it’s finished. It’s a great way to get feedback and new ideas, and you hope your friends will be more honest with you than people who rely on you for a paycheck. Apparently, that level of honesty was a bit too much when director George Lucas screened his unfinished cut of Star Wars: A New Hope for his Hollywood friends, including filmmakers Steven Spielberg and Brian De Palma. This screening is the stuff of legend – the onl...

‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Fails to Deliver on Big Promises in “Common Ground”

When “Common Ground” opens, it flaunts the scale and flavor of a Clone Wars episode sans Tom Kane’s narrated montage. It begins not on the Bad Batch (Dee Bradley Baker) pondering an issue, but on a planet in peril and a worried senator, Avi Singh (Alexander Siddig), looking over his civilians in an Imperial gunpoint situation. This time, we’re witnessing the post-Republic era where the Republic-turned-Empire is the antagonist with the clone army unambiguously serving the oppressors in a tyranni...

Boba Fett’s Spaceship Slave I is Getting Renamed on Toy Packages After Order From Disney

Bounty hunter Boba Fett returned to the Star Wars universe in a big way thanks to the second season of The Mandalorian last year. Though the character already had a rich history thanks to the stories that are now being relegated to Star Wars Legends, the new Star Wars canon established by Lucasfilm in 2014 after Disney purchased the company wipes the slate clean. Now those in charge of Star Wars have freedom to take Boba Fett in new directions, and that could include giving his ship a new name....
