Like ‘The Fast and The Furious’ Franchise, the Kevin Feige ‘Star Wars’ Movie is About Family (Maybe)

In case you forgot, Kevin Feige, the architect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is going to eventually make a Star Wars movie.

But Loki head writer Michael Waldron, who is penning the script for the mysterious Kevin Feige Star Wars movie, has offered up some insight into what the Feige film could end up being about. At the very least, Waldron gives us his philosophy regarding what makes a good Star...

‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Tackles One of the Greatest ‘Clone Wars’ Threats With “Battle Scars”

This article contains spoilers for the Star Wars: The Bad Batch episode “Battle Scars.”  Since we last saw them, the Bad Batch (Dee Bradley Baker) and Omega (Michelle Ang) have been miserably pulling jobs for Cid (Rhea Perlman). Since they (deliberately) botched their assignment on Corellia , they aren’t on her good side and she deducts creds on their expenses, one that hilariously includes Wrecker’s and Omega’s routine purchase of the popcorn-ish Mantell Mix. Their snack-buying after a missio...
