Back in the day NAZI’s used to engage in the extermination of what they deemed “inferior races” and attempt to grind the free world under the heels of their jackboots . In 2016 they seem mainly concerned with complaining about science fiction characters. This is a bit of an improvement, we suppose, but their incessant adolescent whining is hardly befitting of a “master race”.  Even Hitler didn’t pause during the Nuremburg rally to have a moan about how Captain America kept punching him in the jaw. The gormless goosesteppers are back at it again, this time insisting on a Rogue One boycott.

Amongst the army of swirling rumours about the future shape of Disney’s Star Wars Universe, few have been more intriguing than the prospect of a spin-off trilogy focussing on the adventures of Obi-Wan Kenobi. The series, it was said, would take place between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. It would chronicle the journey of the young Jedi Knight as he picks through the wreckage of a collapsing Republic, eventually choosing his hermetic existence Tatooine. Disney never commented on the truth of these claims, although our slim hopes were encouraged by Ewan Macgregor’s apparent willingness to reprise his role. Today we got another hint about when we might next see Obi Wan, and it could be sooner than we thought.

Forty year old gossip usually doesn’t do too great a job of attracting attention, for the most part. But last week, Carrie Fisher made headlines across the world when she talked about some of juicy gossip that would be included in the publication of the journals she kept as a young woman. Now available in stores, The Princess Diarist documents in detail her time on the set of Star Wars – including what she describes as a brief yet intense romantic affair with her co-star Harrison Ford. As well as scandalous, the book promises to be raw and exciting in the way only a naive actress at the heart of a pivotal moment in popular culture can convey. (more…)

Best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen, the mother of dragons, Emilia Clarke, has been cast in the Han Solo movie. She’ll be joining Alden Ehrenreich who will play the leading role of Han Solo and Donald Glover who will play a young Lando Calrissian. According to several internet rumors, Clarke will be taking on the role of Sana Starros. She’s well known among fans of the comic books series. However, you have to remember, you’re dealing with Disney. So the likelihood of any of that happening is slim to none considering they uncanonized the EU for simplicity sake.

Just when you thought you knew someone the secrets come out of the closet changing your entire world view. Here’s a bombshell for ya, Chewbacca could speak English, or Galactic, or whatever they called the language of the Star Wars universe, the entire time. Fans often wondered and guessed at what Chewbacca’s howls and grunts really meant, for all we knew he could be cracking jokes, cursing like a Tusken Raider, or giving out Yoda like wisdom. Jamie Benning knew though, and he’s found the footage to prove it. You might recognize the name, he’s done other Star Wars documentaries worth watching. (more…)

Samuel L. Jackson is having none of your Mace Windu is Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ Supreme Leader Snoke fan theories. Jackson has his own theory that Windu wasn’t killed by Palpatine and survived that long fall (and losing his hand) because Anakin had the same things happen to him as well as other Jedi and they lived. Jackson makes a good case and fans would go crazy to see Windu return to the big screen, or to the animated side on Star Wars Rebels. Lucasfilm and Disney should make that happen. Until then, check out Jackson’s Mace Windu thoughts in the video below. (more…)

It was just a short while ago that Donald Glover‘s (Community) name had been dropped as a front-runner to play a young Lando Calrissian in the Star Wars Han Solo Spin-off. At the time, most shrugged it off as an Internet rumor. Glover himself even acknowledged it saying ” Yep. There are rumors”. Turns out, he was playing coy, and the Internet, in its Magic 9-ball knowledge, got this one right. Star Wars.com confirmed, that yes, Glover will playing smooth-talking smuggler, Lando Calrissian.

You hear that? That’s the sound of a billion nerds jizzing themselves in unison.
