Everything We Know About The Mandalorian Season 3 So Far

Disney+'s "The Mandalorian," the live action Star Wars series that brought Baby Yoda (AKA Grogu) into our lives, has been greenlit for a third season. A lot happened in the season 2 finale of the show — Grogu headed off with a young Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Din Djarin (AKA The Mandalorian, AKA Pedro Pascal, AKA The Best Dad) said goodbye to his de facto son and became the owner of the Darksaber.With things teed up as they are, "Mandalorian" fans were delighted to find out there'd be a th...

Special ‘Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian’ Episode Will Explore Luke Skywalker’s Grand Return

The end of The Mandalorian season 2 had a big reveal. If you know (or read the headline for this article), you know. It might not as big as the reveal at the end of the show’s first episode (it’s hard to beat Grogu), but it’s a big reveal nonetheless. I’m talking, of course, about a young Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) showing up and saving the day. Hamill’s cameo was exciting, and not only because he’s Luke Skywalker. It was also exciting because Hamill’s Luke looked very much like he did in the...

24% of People We Polled Think This is the Worst ‘Star Wars’ Movie – and We Actually Agree

(Welcome to Survey Says, a feature where we conduct a movie-related survey for a random group of people and explain why they’re completely right, completely wrong, or somewhere in-between.) People are pretty passionate about Star Wars. Those movies about events that happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, really get some fans riled up. Naturally, there’s been a lot of arguments online in the past few years about which Star Wars flick is the worst, in part due to extremely mixed rece...

‘Star Wars: Visions’ Special Look: A Long Time Ago, in an Anime Galaxy on Disney+

While Disney is full-steam ahead on The Mandalorian, its assortment of spin-offs, and other live action projects for the streaming service, little has been known about the previously-announced Star Wars: Visions. Until now, that is. Described only as “an Original Series of animated short films, [celebrating] the Star Wars galaxy through the lens of the world’s best Japanese anime creators” and set for release sometime in 2021, we finally received our first real look at the mysterious series tha...

An Ode to Souvenir Pint Glasses, the Most Nostalgic Form of Movie Fandom

As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a Goonie.  To me, being a Goonie was better than being President of the United States. Even before I first wandered into the theater for an after-school job, I knew I wanted to be a part of them. It was there I belonged. To me, it meant being somebody in a neighborhood full of nobodies. They weren’t like anyone else. They did whatever they wanted in the Goon Docks. They’d double-park their bicycles in front of Lower Columbia Bowl and nobod...

The 7 Best Oscar Isaac Movies

The 7 Best Oscar Isaac Movies Oscar Isaac has had something of a meteoric rise in the last decade. In 2010, he played a supporting role in Ridley Scott’s middling adaptation of Robin Hood . In 2019, he will be completing his key arc in the sizeable Star Wars sequel trilogy with J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode IX . His stock in the industry has risen immensely. In between, his roles varied wildly — as did the quality of the films — but he never failed to captivate audiences. He is a uni...

'The Last Jedi' crew burned a 60-foot model tree almost 30 times to get the memorable Yoda-Skywalker scene right

The burning tree scene in "The Last Jedi" was a practical effect — they really lit a fake tree on fire. It took months to build the tree, and close to 25 separate gas lines were rigged to it to have the tree burn to director Rian Johnson's liking. Special effects supervisor Chris Corbould explained to Business Insider how the scene was pulled off. In an era when you assume anything amazing that happens in a movie is courtesy of computer-generated imagery, it’s always exciting to learn when a...

Rumor: Luke and Snoke May Share a Connection in ‘The Last Jedi’ Novelization

Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) cut an ominous figure in 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Scarred and disfigured, this character had managed to rise to power and amass a tyrannical army in the span of 30 years. That’s astonishing, even in a story as fantastical and far, far away as Star Wars. In the two years between Episode 7 and Episode 8, Snoke spawned countless theories and Reddit threads about who, exactly, he was. So when fans sat down for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, they expected to...

How Luke Skywalker Learned About Rogue One; Joseph Gordon-Levitt Defends ‘The Last Jedi’

When Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) delivered the fatal blow into the thermal exhaust port that would detonate the gargantuan Death Star in Star Wars: A New Hope, he was unaware of the lives that had been lost to deliver the plans that led to that assault. We didn’t learn ourselves until 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story delved into the small, scruffy team that nobly gave their lives in honor of a greater cause. The spin-off film took place immediately before the events of A New Hope, but the s...

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review – Spinning Wheels In Space

Fans were rightfully nervous when Rian Johnson was given The Last Jedi, if only because he doesn’t have as much history as you might expect. Looper might be the kind of film that makes you think positively about anyone’s ability to continue a sci-fi saga, but he only has The Brothers Bloom and Brick behind that, which doesn’t make for a collection that stacks up against a plethora of potential directors. Considering that Johnson is writing as well, fans of the biggest series in both movie and po...

'The Last Jedi' is a super-sized 'Star Wars' movie that will make you laugh and cry

"The Last Jedi" is a powerful "Star Wars" movie because it breaks all the usual sequel rules. Writer-director Rian Johnson has created a story that is worthy of the saga, but also has the feel of a powerful standalone movie. If you are wondering why director Rian Johnson has been handed the keys to the “Star Wars” franchise, and been allowed to create a whole new trilogy, look no further than what he’s accomplished in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” After J.J. Abrams helmed the first “Star Wars”...

Here’s what got ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ director Rian Johnson all choked up

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson, who turns 44 on Sunday, has been playing in the “Star Wars” universe since he was four. So when he walked onto the Millennium Falcon while filming “The Last Jedi,” Johnson got a lump in his throat and tears in his eyes. “It’s not just because of what these movies mean to you,” he says. “It’s because I flashed back to being seven or eight years old and playing with the Millennium Falcon toy and projecting myself inside it. var _informq = _info...

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Review: The Best ‘Star Wars’ Movie Since ‘The Empire Strikes Back’

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has a large burden on its shoulders. The 2017 film is not only the highly anticipated follow-up to J.J. Abrams’ rousing and wildly successful 2015 revival of the Star Wars franchise, The Force Awakens , it   also has The Empire Strikes Back looming over its head. The 1980 film has long been held up as the high watermark of sequels, let alone the peak of the Skywalker saga. How can any new Star Wars movie hope to measure up to such a pinnacle? The answer ar...

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Pulls a New Twist on the Old Force

Despite J.J. Abrams successfully resuscitating the Star Wars franchise with 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens , many fans were still left yearning for something new. It was comforting to see old familiar faces from a galaxy far, far away, but casual fans were unlikely to tolerate another greatest hits collection from a franchise already plagued by compositional overlap (to put it kindly). Thankfully, the latest entry in the series, Star...
