Here’s What George Lucas Originally Pitched for the Backstory of Anakin Skywalker

Back in July 1981, few people were privy to the idea that was starting to form in George Lucas‘ mind: an origin story for the iconic Star Wars villain Darth Vader.

2021 Grammy Nominees Include ‘Joker’, ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’, ‘Eurovision Song Contest’, and More

The 63rd annual Grammy Award nominations were unveiled this morning, and since the music industry’s biggest award show is on a different timetable than awards shows like the Oscars or the Emmys, it can often feel like the Grammys are extremely far behind when it comes to pop culture. Case in point: composer Hildur Guðnadóttir‘s Oscar-winning score for Joker, which was initially released over a year ago, is nominated in the Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media category. But there are still a f...

‘Black Panther 2’ Will Start Filming in July 2021, Adds ‘Narco: Mexico’ Actor to Cast

In the wake of Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman‘s surprising and tragic death, we assumed that Marvel Studios and director Ryan Coogler would put the planned Black Panther 2 on the back burner while they grieved and figured out the best way to move forward with the sequel to the billion dollar hit. But apparently they’ve already figured things out – or at least to such a degree that a production start date has already been set. A new report says that Black Panther 2 will begin filming in Jul...

‘The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special’ Shows Us a Future Beyond ‘The Rise of Skywalker’

When it was announced that there would be a new Star Wars Holiday Special, everyone scratched their heads and said, “Well, this is sort of cool, I guess.” The original Star Wars Holiday Special, released in 1978 and aired only once because of how utterly awful it was, has lived on in bootlegs and become something of an ironic favorite. If you can sit through the two hours of it, you’ll be treated to some really cool animated Star Wars segments  and some of the most bizarre skits e...

Babu Frik Asks a Vital Question: Is There Such a Thing as Too Cute For ‘Star Wars’?

(Welcome to The Galaxy-Wide Star Wars Character Guide, where we give proper due to the smaller figures in Star Wars history.) It doesn’t take much for a Star Wars character to become iconic.

George Lucas’ ‘Star Wars’ Sequel Trilogy Would Have Brought Back Darth Maul, Leaned Heavily on Princess Leia

Before the new Star Wars trilogy came around, the prequels were the most divisive installments of the sci-fi saga. While older Star Wars fans love the original trilogy more, those who grew up with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith hold the movies in high esteem. So there’s plenty of interest in learning anything and everything about the making of those films with the benefit of hindsight. And a new Star Wars book has finally provided that.

Felicity Jones Thinks Her Dead ‘Star Wars’ Character Should be Reincarnated

In an era in which Disney was latching on to recognizable icons in Star Wars mythos to retain a sense of familiarity for audiences, one of the company’s biggest creative risks was making Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a film which – spoiler alert – kills off every major protagonist by the time the end credits roll. But in a new interview, Felicity Jones, who played Rebel leader Jyn Erso in the 2016 film, says she wants Jyn to be reincarnated because her character has “unfinished business.” Jon...
