Listen to the original NPR radio drama adaptations of the first STAR WARS trilogy

In my 90s childhood Star Wars obsession, I remember hearing a lot about the fabled NPR radio drama adaptations (read: "podcast") of the original trilogy. They were supposed to be canonical, in-as-much as they were Lucas-approved stories that expanded on the familiar ones we already knew. Now, someone has finally compiled them all on YouTube (although apparently you can find the MP3s on as well). And wow, they are expanded — the A New Hope radio drama is 13 hours long! It's quite a st...

‘Star Wars’ Concept Art Hints That Rey’s Yellow Lightsaber Was Going to Play a Larger Role in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ended with Rey revealing her new yellow lightsaber, signaling the end of an era and the beginning of a new chapter for the Jedi. But originally Rey, who had fought for the past three films with lightsabers that belonged to Luke or Leia, might have been able to wield her own lightsaber much earlier in The Rise of Skywalker. New Star Wars concept art that show the inner workings of Rey’s lightsaber, which she builds through the course of the film, suggests that th...

Concept Art: Leia’s Lightsaber in ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ Was Inspired By An Art Deco Lamp

One of the best things about Star Wars is how it distilled dozens of unrelated inspirations into a sci-fi world that felt simultaneously familiar and unlike anything people had ever seen. Tasked with wrapping up the entire Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker didn’t have quite the same freedom to innovate as George Lucas’s scrappy original 1977 film, but distilling reference material into new things is still an essential part of the franchise’s fabric. Case in point: some new concep...

Was Rey Ever Going to be a “Real” Skywalker? The New ‘Rise of Skywalker’ Art Book Has a Potential Answer

When we first met Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, there was plenty of mystery surrounding just who she was. Flashbacks showed her family deserting her on Jakku, and then there was the fact that she was able to yield the Force with great ability and strength. Immediately, fans began speculating: was she secretly a Skywalker? Of course, now we know the answer: No. She wasn’t. She was actually a Palpatine – a twist that still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. But was that always the plan? There...

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Novelization Fills Out More Plot Holes About Kylo Ren

Even three months after its release, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker refuses to leave the national conversation. Perhaps that’s because so much supplementary material keeps coming out after the fact to fill out the plot gaps in the film’s ever-so-complex narrative. The latest from the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker novelization is all about Kylo Ren and his arc form Big Bad to big softie, and how exactly it happened. Kylo Ren’s redemption arc was arguably one of the most dissatisfying par...

‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Honest Trailer: You Can’t Teach An Old Emperor New Tricks

Last year, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ended the Skywalker saga, not with a bang, but with a whimper. That’s because the final chapter of the Skywalker saga desperately tries to cling to whatever nostalgia is left for the original trilogy rather than delivering a satisfying, cohesive story. However, as the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Honest Trailer reminds us, unless you were reading one of the supplementary books, paying attention to interviews with co-writer Chris Terrio in the week...

New ‘Star Wars’ Comic Reveals Luke Skywalker Had a Secret Yellow Lightsaber

Audiences got a first glimpse of the rare yellow lightsaber on the big screen in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, when Rey revealed her own personal lightsaber at the end of the film, emitting a golden-yellow hue. It was a stark contrast to the blue and green lightsabers that Jedi Masters had wielded in the past, or the red lightsabers of the Sith. But a new Star Wars comic has revealed that this isn’t the first time a major Jedi Master has wielded a yellow lightsaber. Luke Skywalker, who unti...

Leia Succeeded Where Luke Failed

The Skywalker bloodline is perhaps defined by a series of failures. Anakin’s attempts to protect Padmé brought about the rise of the Empire. Luke’s pressure to live up to this prophecy of the chosen one brought about the undoing of his fledgling Jedi Order and his own nephew—who himself saw a moment of weakness and…Read more...
