VOTD: How ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Should Have Ended

When it comes to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, there are a lot of changes that should have been made to give us a more satisfying finale for the Skywalker saga. But the folks at How It Should Have Ended did their best to get a little bit more specific with how things should have went down. However, before getting to How Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker should have ended, which includes making the fight with Mega Emperor Palpatine infinitely easier, they make some pits tops with some amusing...

The ‘Star Wars: Resistance’ Post-Mortem: Breaking Down What Worked and What Did Not in the Underrated Series

The Disney XD animated Star Wars Resistance requires patience in ways that frustrated while also marveled. Even when it literally launched into the stars in season two, its tests its own range without really transcending it. There are times where Resistance , set before and during The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, takes the path of least resistance. But it is not inherently negative if Resistance had breezier aims than other LucasFilm animated productions than Clone Wars ...

Twelve Films That Highlight the Best in Humanity

This year’s Oscar nominees for Best Picture tend to emphasize the worst in humanity. For example, Joker is about the descent into homicidal madness. Jojo Rabbit is about one of the worst events in human history, the Nazi Holocaust. 1917 is about another catastrophe, World War One. In each of those films, however, we can still find elements of humanity’s best qualities: heroism, growth, fortitude, and more. Those qualities are the focus of our own list of this year’s Greater Goodies, our awar...

What Disney needs to fix in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge remains a work in progress filled with seemingly unlimited potential once the new themed lands at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios have a chance to adjust, change, grow and evolve over time. Like any new home, the Star Wars lands in California and Florida have a punch list of honey-dos that need to be repaired and fixed once there’s enough time, will and money. But you have to take care of the immediate issues on the short-term list before diving into the longer...

What Disney got right with Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland

Walt Disney Imagineering took a big and ambitious risk creating a brand new planet in the Star Wars universe with its own unique backstory for the twin Galaxy’s Edge themed lands at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Imagineering doubled down on the risky bet by locking the timeframe for the new 14-acre lands into the current “Star Wars” trilogy — a choice that essentially locked Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Han Solo and many other popular characters out of Galaxy’s Edge. The result: A p...

SNL’s Season Premiere Had Kylo Ren Back For More Undercover Boss

YouTube screenshot After this episode, they NEED to bring Adam Driver back for round four This past weekend Saturday Night Live returned for season 46, and after bookending last season with Woody Harrelson and the highly anticipated return of prodigal son Eddie Murphy, (which received the highest rating of any episode in the last two-and-a-half years) the folks over at Studio 8H had set the bar pretty damn high for themselves.

LOL: Adam Driver Returns as Kylo Ren on ‘Undercover Boss’ for ‘Saturday Night Live’

When Adam Driver first hosted Saturday Night Live back in January of 2016, it was just a month after the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The writers of the late night sketch show took advantage of the timeliness of Star Wars and had Adam Driver reprise his role as Kylo Ren as if he were on an episode of the CBS series Undercover Boss, disguised as a radar technician named Matt. Four years later, Adam Driver is back as Kylo Ren on Undercover Boss, but this time he’s an intern named Rand...

‘Star Wars Resistance’ Series Finale “The Escape” Feels Both Finished and Unfinished

The ending of Star Wars Resistance feels like a paradox, finished and unfinished. So many opportunities have been untouched in the previous season, yet so much has unraveled in the finale that provides a closure that feels decisive and open-ended without being a cliffhanger. All the little humanities in the past bubble up into emotional highs in the finale “The Escape.” Tam Ryvora (Susie McGrath) and Jace Rucklin (Elijah Wood) observe as the First Order lay waste on the Aeosians, who allied bri...

How ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Made Me Appreciate ‘The Last Jedi’ (Or, How I Learned to Love Old Man Luke Skywalker)

When it comes to beloved genre film franchises, Star Wars stands alone. I’m not talking about in terms of box office numbers or household name recognition, but in the DNA of how the brand came to exist. Unlike The Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter , a galaxy far, far away doesn’t have the underlying structure of novels to hang its themes and narrative on. While the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe have decades of source material to mine, Star Wars does not ha...

If Rise of the Resistance sounds like a scene from a “Star Wars” movie, that’s the point.

Colin Trevorrow ‘Star Wars’ Script Leaks, Reveals a Very Different Movie Called ‘Star Wars: Duel of the Fates’

Here’s something I don’t think any of us expected: the now-unused Star Wars script from Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly sounds…good? Details from the script, which has the title Duel of the Fates, have leaked – and it sounds…good? Or, at the very least, it sounds very different than J.J. Abrams‘ The Rise of Skywalker. Of course, this is all subjective. What sounds potentially good on paper could’ve been a misfire once filmed. Here’s what you need to know. What Happens in the Colin Trevor...
