Here’s How Darth Vader Could Fit Into the ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ TV Series – and Why It Makes Sense in Canon

During the massive, four-hour Disney Investor presentation last week, Lucasfilm was able to present its upcoming slate of projects. During that time, they were able to make a number of announcements. So many announcements were made that we’re still sifting through the ramifications of them. The Star Wars universe is going to look very different in a few years, and that’s not a bad thing. One of the things I love about Star Wars  is how malleable it is, and how we’re able to derive new c...

Remembering Zam Wesell, the Worst Assassin in the ‘Star Wars’ Galaxy

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide, where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) Some of us saw Star Wars Episode I:  The Phantom Menace and liked it right away. Some disliked it immediately. For some, it took many viewings to cement an opinion. And for others, there was a feeling that wherever happened in its follow-up, Star Wars Episode II:  Attack of the Clones ,  would help make sense of whatever George Lucas was up to with The Phantom M...

Top 10 Best Threequels: Return of the King, The Last Crusade & More

Top 10 Best Threequels: Return of the King, The Last Crusade & More Ah, the threequel. The third and typically last film in a series. Over the years we’ve seen a number of finales drop the ball on their last go — Spider-Man 3, Superman 3, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and even The Godfather Part III, for example — as director’s seem to run out of ideas or run into studio interference that hampers their overarching vision. And yet, there are actu...

I am pre-ordering Star Wars The Clone Wars: Stories of Light and Dark because Cad Bane. Cad Bane was my favorite of the very many excellent characters to come out of Star Wars Clone Wars.
