How Disney Imagineering turned the Rainforest Cafe into a Star Wars rebel base in Downtown Disney

If Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland is locked into a very specific timeline in the epic space opera, then the new Star Wars Trading Post in Downtown Disney will encompass every story, character and era from a galaxy far, far away. “It’s a place to celebrate all things Star Wars,” Walt Disney Imagineering Art Director Kirstin Makela said in a video interview. “We want this to be a space that grows with the fandom and has the ability to celebrate all the different characters and adventures t...

I Finally Purchased An Instant Pot But I Don’t Know How To Use One

If nothing else 2020 was the year I learned to cook better. I really committed to it too! I did some online Jamie Oliver Cookery classes and even did a Gordon Ramsey MasterClass which disappointed me because some small part of me expected him to yell while I cowered behind a frying pan in fear. Why doesn’t Nick Stellino have a Masterclass? I’d pay big money for him to teach me to cook as he told me stories about his family. Which reminds me wouldn’t you drop major cash to watch Julia and J...

‘The Mandalorian’ Cast Learned About Luke Skywalker’s Cameo at the Same Time as Fans

The appearance of a young Luke Skywalker in the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian was one of the biggest reveals from the Disney+ series. It turns out that it was also its best-kept secret. Not even the cast of the Star Wars series knew who was going to step out of those doors until they saw it on Disney+ like everyone else. Katee Sackhoff, who plays the live-action version of the beloved Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels character Bo-Katan Kryze, was part of the ensemble of ch...

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 Food That Defined Film and Television in 2020

I love to eat. I love to cook. I love to stuff myself into restaurant booths surrounded by companions, boozy creations, and another kitchen’s signature nibbles. I love to write about how filmmakers utilize food, whether it’s to set a mood, spark a connection, or layer a sense of comfort atop an otherwise deceptively tense standoff. Dinner tables alone set a stage for dysfunction, disillusion, and disappointment as homestyle perfection crumbles around honey-baked hams while nuclear families go,...

Could Disney bring the Mandalorian and Grogu to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge?

Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm have carved out a very specific and limited timeframe for Galaxy’s Edge that determines which characters can — and cannot — appear in the Star Wars themed lands based on the sprawling space opera. Which raises the question: Will any Star Wars characters from a host of new Disney+ shows make appearances in the Black Spire Outpost village on the planet of Batuu, the setting for the twin 14-acre themed lands at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios?

The Coolest Star Wars Collectibles of 2020
