So many questions. That’s what we were left with after last Friday’s debut of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser trailer. Of course, there have been a lot of questions about the next direction of the Star Wars saga since the end credits for The Force Awakens, and a lot of promises about answers in The Last Jedi. The film’s writer/director Rian Johnson was cagey in the panel at Star Wars Celebration, but how about an exclusive chat with corporate colleagues over at Good Morning America, what new details might they be able to pry out of Johnson? Well, there are a few. (more…)
While the cast and crew continue to work on the new series, CBS seems unable or unwilling to set another premiere date for Star Trek: Discovery. Mark DeBevoise, the CBS Interactive President and Chief Operating Officer when asked by Vulture if the show might premiere this fall said, We’re not stating. Should that make you worry about the new series? DeBevoise went on to perhaps try to sooth those nervous feelings and you can check out what he said below. (more…)
So how was your Easter weekend, and how much of it did you spend re-watching the Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser again, and again (and again, and again, and again)? Probably a few times, and then there were long, contemplative periods thinking about the line, “It’s time for the Jedi to end.” What does that mean? Was Luke serious, or was he caught in a moment of self-doubt? Or perhaps he’s – gasp – turned to the Dark Side! Well, Mark Hamill knows from where you speak, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to shed any new meaning on the line he’s heard to utter in that teaser. (more…)
With the exception of the special episode released on Christmas Day, Doctor Who fans have been waiting for more than a year for the latest season of the show. The episode marks the start of the last season starring Peter Capaldi as the mysterious Doctor and introduced Pearl Mackie as the newest companion, Bill Potts. After the long wait for the new episode, tension is high. Given a somewhat mixed response to some of the recent seasons, many people are intrigued to see how Steven Moffatt will round off his career as Head Writer and Executive Producer on the series.

Star Wars at Disney is pretty cool as is. They have such attractions as an updated Star Tours and The Jedi Training Academy stage show. There is also Star Wars Weekends, where Hollywood Studios is transformed into a Star Wars themed park, almost during these weeks All of that, however, is nothing compared to what Disney has planned for its all-Star Wars Park expansion. Construction has been underway for under a year and along the way Disney has teased the park with concept art and some official words laying out some of the best key attractions; including a full scale Millennium Falcon, life size ATATs, and cantinas where robots, aliens and rebel scum are abound. Cool, right? Well, according to revealings from Star Wars Celebration, the park is going to be far cooler than anyone could have possibly imagined. How cool? Well it’s not exactly Westworld but it’s pretty darn close. A park where your decisions have consequences! Oh, and Lucasfilm has announced that the Star Wars-themed land coming to Disney parks in California and Florida will officially become part of the canon. (more…)
Star Wars Rebels has become a fan favorite show among the legion of Star Wars fans. The show largely filled the gap that was left after the cancellation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (which was rushed off air so quickly the final season became a Netflix exclusive). The show is comprised of largely the same team, following the same art style who have actually managed to close a few plot threads from the other show—however, while Clone Wars followed young Jedi padawan Ahsoka Tano and her master Anakin Skywalker between the Episode II and III films, the new series is set years later, showing the formation of the early Rebel alliance pre-Episode IV.
Now we have our first look at Star Wars Rebels Season 4, which promises to once again prove that some of the best Star Wars stuff happens outside of the movies. (more…)

For the longest, Star Wars movies have been within the “Skywalker Saga.” This means that they have centered on a member of the Skywalker family as they deal with the forces of good versus evil, the Jedi versus the Sith and other variables. Originally, there was supposed to be 9 films, The Prequel Trilogy, The Original Trilogy, and the trilogy that happened afterward. The saga was shortened to just the Prequel and Original Trilogy under George Lucas’ vision. However, the Bearded One sold Lucasfilm to Disney, and the House of Mouse commissioned to create a brand new trilogy to tell of events after the OT.
