But Rex and Ahsoka will come out of the Clone War...mostly unscathed, and for the voice behind the former, their…Read more...

Will Yoda (or Maybe Even Baby Yodas) Be a Part of ‘Star Wars: The High Republic’?

Earlier this week, Lucasfilm announced Star Wars: The High Republic, a new publishing program featuring interconnected stories told across multiple platforms and set 200 years before the events of the Skywalker Saga. The company released a trailer that gave us a behind-the-scenes look at story sessions with various writers involved the program, and now some concept art in that video has fans wondering if Yoda is going to play a role in these stories. Take a look at the screenshots and judge for...

How Star Wars: The Clone Wars' Long Hiatus, and The Mandalorian, Made It Even Better

There’s no way producer Dave Filoni ever thought Star Wars: The Clone Wars would be back. If he thought for a second that might happen, he certainly wouldn’t have spent the last six years telling fans what he had planned to do. He also probably wouldn’t have resurrected several of the show’s major characters in…Read more...

Nerding out over sci-fi spaceship designs at the Spacedock

When I was a teen devourer of sci-fi, I was obsessed with the spaceship designs on paperback book covers. I would buy any novel or short story collection, however sketchy the contents seemed, if I dug the ship on the cover. Conversely, I would pass over well-regarded books if I thought the spaceship art was crappy. Sometimes, the covers would make a more lasting impression on me than the contents. I can't imagine how high over the moon teenage me would be for YouTube channels like Spacedock. Thi...

Lucasfilm Hires Sleight Director J.D. Dillard to Develop a Star Wars Movie For a while, it’s been looking as though the future of Star Wars rests squarely on television.

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Breakdown: The History and Details That Enrich “The Bad Batch”

It’s been a long road waiting for these last twelve episodes of Star Wars:  The Clone Wars, but now that we have them, it’s time to look at the lore they’ve drawn from or added to. This first episode, “The Bad Batch,” takes place shortly after the beginning of the Outer Rim sieges and I would guess between six and eight months before Revenge of the Sith . So far, this is almost as close to the end of the war as we’ve seen on the show, though that will all change by the end of the season. ...

Seems Like Star Wars: The Clone Wars Will Cross Into Revenge of the Sith After All

Star Wars fans know Revenge of the Sith begins with the end of the Clone Wars. So, most people assumed The Clone Wars TV show would end before that, or at least right at that moment.

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Returns and “The Bad Batch” Reminds Us Why the Clone Characters Are the Real Stars

After a six-year hiatus and an open-ended conclusion, Star Wars:  The Clone Wars  is finally back and has a new home on Disney+ for its seventh and final season. Rather than the whole season getting released at once like the previous season, called “The Lost Missions,” which was dropped on Netflix in 2014, Clone Wars is doing weekly releases starting with “ The Bad Batch ”, the first episode in a new arc.

How The Mandalorian was shot on a virtual stage using the Unreal Engine

Until I bumped into the first video below on YouTube this morning, I had no idea that a lot of The Mandalorian was shot on a virtual set using the Unreal Engine. Over 50 percent of The Mandalorian Season 1 was filmed using this ground-breaking new methodology, eliminating the need for location shoots entirely. Instead, actors in The Mandalorian performed in an immersive and massive 20’ high by 270-degree semicircular LED video wall and ceiling with a 75’-diameter performance space, where the pra...
