Kabam, who you might know as the developer of Marvel‘s mobile game Marvel: Contest of Champions, has just announced a new Star Wars Mobile game Star Wars: Uprising. The graphics in MCoC are pretty damn good so fans can expect to see some interesting Star Wars characters and locations from the Star Wars Universe. The game takes place in the tie period between Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Wanna know more? (more…)

…Hobby. Collecting antique pie plates. Now you know. Joking aside, it would make sense that Marvel Comics, free to create not just a whole new expanded universe, but have it officially recognized as part of Star Wars canon, would throw a curve ball into the story we think we know. In that spirit, the latest issue of Star Wars features a surprising twist for one of the main characters from the Original Trilogy. In a move that’s sure to be almost as controversial as Greedo shooting first – well, maybe – there’s a piece of information revealed at the end of Star Wars #6, which hits the stands today, that reveals Princess Leia is not the first woman to win the heart of the charming rogue captain of the Millennium Falcon.

Disney has long been at the forefront of pushing boundaries when it comes to kids and their interaction with imaginative toys and experiences.  The Disney Infinity toy/game hybrid series has been doing extremely well these last few years, and of course, Disney’s theme parks themselves are essentially one big immersive experience.  Now, the company is ready to make another leap: Playmation, wearable smart technology that they hope will blur the lines of gaming and imaginative play all the more.

Black-Angel2-700x300

Ever hear the name “Black Angel”? Despite what you may think, no, it’s not name of a underground death metal band. Black Angel, is the “lost” short that debuted in front of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in 1980. A full-feature Black Angel  is now in the works, with Roger Christian back to write and direct and Rutger Hauer and John Rhys-Davies set to star.  (more…)

Bird Bird can do wrong. The Iron Giant is a masterpiece, The Incredibles is perhaps the best comic book movie ever made, Ratatouille is endlessly charming, and his first live-action movie, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, is the best of the series and the one that best captures the aesthetic of the original TV show. So when Bird shirked directorial responsibilities on Star Wars: The Force Awakens and dared to make something original, a giant mystery box called Tomorrowland, it was a bold choice, a daring choice. But a batting streak like Bird’s was bound to run dry sometime, and while Tomorrowland isn’t a mess on par with, say, Chappie, it does show tremendous strain in its execution. (more…)

Disney Considering Star Wars and Marvel TV Channels?

Disney-Star-Wars-Marvel-Canale-TV

Mickey, Spidey, and Yoda all under one roof? Disney has lots of other channels, such as ESPN, ABC, Disney Jr., and Disney XD; and Disney CEO Bob Iger sounds like he might be keen on expanding the family. During an investors call last week, Iger mentioned possibly creating TV channels for both Star Wars and Marvel, respectively. (more…)

In a world where the machines have risen up, spellchecks are useless and autocorrect walks against wombat pinball. Internet word slinger Mason Fabulous and satin voiced flim-flam artist and brand expert Hermes “Bear” Brunson must band together to save the world the only way they now how. By watching trailers on YouTube and talking over them.

Other than watching videos on the radio (which is as exciting as it sounds) this week on the show: (more…)

01-Boba-Fett

We’ve all wondered, how did Boba Fett evolve from that precocious little clone upset about his father’s decapitation to becoming the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy? Well, maybe some of us want to forget about that first part because who wants to think of Boba Fett as a 10-year-old giving Obi-Wan Kenobi the stink eye? In fact who wants to think of Boba Fett’s childhood period? Perhaps that all will be skipped in the end because, as expected, it’s been announced that Boba Fett will be the subject of the second Star Wars Anthology film. Not bad for a guy who has about six lines of dialogue in three movie appearances. (more…)

Josh Trank Kicked Out Of A Galaxy Far, Far Away?

Trank 4

A few days ago, news of Josh Trank’s departure from the as-of-yet untitled Star Wars spinoff hit the internet, though not quite as hard as one may have assumed.  Since Trank’s absence from the Star Wars Celebration panel that he was to share with Star Wars: Rogue One director Gareth Edwards, rumors had swirled that maybe Trank wasn’t getting along so well in a galaxy far, far, away, so news of his departure was almost expected.  The unknown in the matter was the reason behind his (presumed) decision to leave.  Well, THR has received some new information that points more towards Trank being asked to leave one of the most profitable franchises in history, rather than choosing to leave on his own.  (more…)
