Let’s Talk About Alexsandr Kallus, One of the Most Underrated ‘Star Wars’ Characters Ever

With all the acclaim given to Star Wars: The  Clone Wars in recent years, it can be easy to overlook Dave Filoni’s other great animated Star Wars show, Star Wars Rebels . That makes some sense. For one, Rebels lacks the immediate proximity to a Star Wars property enjoyed by Clone Wars . While some familiar faces do appear, the show’s central cast is mostly populated with new characters. Many of the Rebels characters who are familiar originated in the earlier show, impl...

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...

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. But at least three people learned the details at a story conference for Return of the Jedi, in which the Star Wars maestro revealed to Richard Marquand, Howard Kazanjian, and Lawrence Kasdan his vision of Anakin Skywalker’s origins. Lucas’ pitch for Anakin Skywalker’s original backstory, which is revealed in the new book The Star War...

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...

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...

The Month In Metal – May 2020

Heads up: Wyatt is grabbing the intro reins this month as he takes a deep dive into the Netherlands' flourishing black metal scene. Turia’s Degen Van Licht shimmers into focus, materializing out of hazy delirious heat. What emerges is a strange beast; it’s jagged at the edges, a jangly maelstrom that marches and roars forward.

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Breakdown: The Details and History That Enrich “Victory and Death”

Here we are. The final episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. For the last 12 years, we’ve been offered small windows into the three year gap of time the Clone Wars occupied. The other episodes took place firmly between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith , but for the last few episodes, the timeline has crossed over into the events of Episode III with heartbreaking consequences as we watch Ahsoka Tano (and Rex) navigate the perils of the Sith Grand Plan as it culminates...

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Breakdown: The Details and History That Enrich “The Phantom Apprentice”

“The Phantom Apprentice” , the latest episode in the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars,  hits the emotions like a blunt instrument. I’d be surprised if there was a dry eye anywhere it was being watched and part of that tension that causes sobbing tears is that this episode marches inexorably to the worst case scenario for the Jedi and for the clones. As we’ve gotten to know the clones over the course of the last seven seasons, as we’ve seen just how loyal they really are. The switc...

5 Ways ‘Star Wars’ Can Move Past the Skywalker Saga

It’s been 42 years, but the Skywalker saga is now finished.  While The Force Awakens introduced the franchise far, far away to a new generation by mirroring what had made the franchise special 42 years ago but with new characters, and The Last Jedi dared look at a time where the franchise could move forward without legacy characters, Star Wars:  The Rise of Skywalker tried to tie it all together in a movie that is proving polarizing. With no more confirmed movies on the horizon, th...

Let’s Talk About the Ending of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Warning: This post contains major spoilers for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. When we first see Rey (Daisy Ridley) in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, she’s in the midst of a Jedi training exercise that involves levitating while keeping a bunch of rocks floating in the air around her. She speaks into the ether: “Be with me.” Nothing happens. But this, of course, will be important later on. Over the course of the next two hours of director J.J. Abrams’ conclusion to the Star Wars sequel ...

All the Questions We Still Have After Watching Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Warning: This post contains major spoilers for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker purports to be the final entry in the Skywalker saga. It answered many lingering questions, including who Rey’s parents really are—the son and daughter-in-law of Emperor Palpatine—whether Kylo Ren would turn to the light side—he did—and why Snoke existed—because Palpatine made him, for some reason. (OK, so maybe that’s not much of an answer.) But many mysteries were left unsolve...
