‘Onward’ Features Pixar’s First Openly LGBTQ Character, Voiced by Lena Waithe

Disney and Pixar are finally giving us our first openly queer animated character — so we hope. In recent years, Disney has made tiny little baby steps toward greater LGBTQ representation, with an “exclusively gay moment” in the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, a minor gay character in Avengers: Endgame, and the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it same-sex kiss of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. But those moments ended up feeling like insubstantial excuses for the House of Mouse to pat itself ...

Ahsoka Tano’s Voice Cameo in ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Doesn’t Mean She’s Dead, According to Dave Filoni

Ahsoka Tano is one of the most popular new characters to emerge from the Star Wars animated universe — with one of the coolest character designs. So why hasn’t she made it to the big screen? Well, she sort-of has with a sight unseen cameo in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but in a way that devastated fans of the character.

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.

‘Knives Out’ Honest Trailer: Rian Johnson Combines A-Listers, A-Holes and A-gatha Christie

Since Star Wars: The Last Jedi got a bunch of manbabies riled up about minority characters, female empowerment, and whiny entitled douchebros, writer/director Rian Johnson decided to take it one step further with Knives Out. The whodunit in the vein of Agatha Christie isn’t quite as much of a mystery as it would seem, mostly since we find out who the killer is roughly halfway through the movie. But of course, the plot at the center of Knives Out is a donut hole within a donut hole, so there’s s...

Which Forms of Courage Do You See In Yourself?

Editor’s note: This is a guest post by Nancy Seibel , M.Ed., NCC, BCC. From the series’ earliest films to the latest and last, the Star Wars movies’ portrayals of courage have awed me every time. “Could I ever do something like that?” I wondered as I watched The Rise of Skywalker’s outnumbered Rebel Alliance fight their epic battle with the evil First Order.
