Star Wars Provides New Evidence For The Mandalorian’s Baby Yoda Clone Theory

It’s more than apparent that the real star of The Mandalorian is The Child, or “baby Yoda”, as he has been dubbed by the public. The Child has a very integral role in the storyline of The Mandalorian when the main character is sent to retrieve him, but then becomes suspicious of what they plan to do with him. A new Star Wars book provides more evidence that the Empire was trying to clone Baby Yoda, which was hinted at in Season One of the show. A new, franchise companion guide, aptly titled The Star Wars Book, now lends even more credence to the “Baby Yoda” clone theory. The new Star Wars Book is just one of several hitting the shelves this month. (Another, Star Wars: Fascinating Facts, has already revealed franchise secrets.) The Star Wars Book, however, shares in-universe details. Of those is this line, “Rumors spread of Imperial attempts to create clones of unique species.” We…

Daisy Ridley Says Work was Scarce Right after Star Wars

As the star of a multi-billion dollar franchise, you’d think Daisy Ridley would have no trouble finding a job after filming the latest Star Wars trilogy. Surprisingly, she says she wasn’t swimming in job offers right after (and this was before Covid-19 put a halt on filming). In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly about her voice role in the time-loop video game Twelve Minutes, Ridley talked about her role as Rey in the Star Wars saga, and about how she wasn’t swimming in job offers right away. Roles like Ridley’s Rey are often career-defining jobs for actors. But it’s clear that Ridley also doesn’t want to get typecasted into only one type of role. She talks about it more in a virtual interview with the site. “Nothing was coming through,” the actress recalls of those first couple months after Rise of Skywalker hit theaters. “It was so sad to finish [Star Wars],” she says…

The Most Profitable Star Wars Movies to Date

We have written a lot about Star Wars movies here on the site, especially since the new trilogy was announced, which caused a new surge in popularity for the franchise. The excitement for the new movies was higher than ever before. Old fans of the franchise were excited to see it coming back to the big screen, and it also created new fans in the younger generations who didn’t get to see the first movies back when they came out.  In fact, the new trilogy brought Star Wars back into the mainstream for our generation and also opened the doors for new games, spin off movies, television shows like The Mandalorian and of course, lots and lots of merchandising.  In fact, with how much we’re seeing The Child on merchandise and memes, you’d think he was the star of a hit Star Wars movie. He definitely gave a lot of…

Reappraising ‘The Rise Of Skywalker’

All the hype that came with the original cinema release of ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ seems like it was a long time ago now. It wasn’t, of course – it’s only been six months – but the world has changed so much since then that it might as well have happened in a different lifetime. When you cast your mind back, though, you’ll remember that everyone had very strong opinions about the film, just as they did with ‘The Last Jedi.’ Some people loved it. A lot of people hated it. If we went back and watched it again now, free of all the hype and expectations, would our opinions of it change?  The question is worth asking now, because now is the time to allow yourself a second viewing if you haven’t seen it for a while. On May 4th (the day that the world has happily adopted as…

THE JEDI JAWA – A Star Wars Fan Film

“After a long day scavenging the desert, a young Jawa makes a grim discovery when returning home. When all is gone, revenge is the only option!

‘Star Wars’ Series From ‘Russian Doll’ Co-Creator Leslye Headland in the Works at Disney Plus

In an exclusive interview with Variety, we found out that Disney had something new in the works – a new Star Wars series for Disney Plus from the co-creator of “Russian Doll”, Leslye Headland. I, for one, was a HUGE fan of Russian Doll (Hello? Where’s our Season 2?) and I think this could be a good matchup for the new Star Wars series that is said to be female-centric. The details of the show are being kept secret (of course) but it’s said to take place in a different part of the Star Wars timeline from other projects. If anyone can do a female-centric piece well with strong, likable, relatable female characters, it will be Headland. In addition to her work on “Russian Doll”, she also has writing and directing credits in “Seven Deadly Plays”, “About Last Night”, “Sleeping with Other People”, and “Black Monday” to name a few….

Top 10 Ranking of the Villains in the Star Wars Universe

From the original trilogy to the recently concluded sequels, the Star Wars franchise is filled with memorable villains.  Adorned by brutally minimalist outfits and armour, the bad guys enter with flair (often in a ship that’s flashier than a GClub game). Not all the Star Wars villains are created equal, though. Some are more sinister than others, so to celebrate the gloriousness that is the Star Wars universe, we’ve compiled the Top 10 rogue’s gallery of villains in the franchise. 10. Stormtroopers While they may not be the strongest or most accurate soldiers, stormtroopers are the most ubiquitous antagonists in the galaxy. Whether it’s combing the desert for our heroes or speeding through a dense jungle planet, they’re there to take a beating and make the heroes look good. 9. Greedo While he may only have seconds of screen time, Greedo played a big part in making Han Solo one…

The Cancelled STAR WARS Episode 9 Animated

Want a little laugh in your day? This Animated Episode 9 just made my whole day. It’s a lot of fun and will give you the breakdown of what would have been for the canceled Duel of Fates. Before JJ Abrams came on board for Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, Collin Trevorrow was slated to direct his own version, Duel Of The Fates. Unfortunately, that would never be. But, what would it have been like? Vastly different to the Episode 9 that we ended up with, it included no Emperor Palpatine, his Master Tor Vallum (using concepts from a cut character from the JJ version) more Rise Tico and General Leia, a double-sided lightsaber for Rey, Kylo Ren as the main protagonist and about the same amount of the Knights Of Ren we actually got. Here’s a great video from Mr Sunday Movies that will tell you all about…

Star Wars Fan film: Origins

If you want to see one of the best Star Wars fan films of our time, this is one to check out from Star Wars Origins Film on YouTube. It’s a fun, behind the scenes look at how it all started. This origin story has a very interesting concept you need to see to understand (it’s worth it!) and it’s honestly one of the most unique fan films I’ve seen so far. STAR WARS: ORIGINS takes a unique look at where it all began. A thrilling action-adventure, this film draws inspiration from both STAR WARS and INDIANA JONES to tell an epic story based on Earth during WWII.

STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC PUBLISHING CAMPAIGN Coming in 2020

Interesting news from StarWars.com this week: Later this year, Lucasfilm will launch an epic new era of Star Wars storytelling. Star Wars: The High Republic, which has previously been referred to as “Project Luminous”, will be set in an era when the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order are at their zenith, about 200 years before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. The timeline of this will not overlap any of the films and the series currently planned for production. This means the creators and partners will have a lot of room to tell these Star Wars stories with new, original characters. These publications will include adult and young adult novels, children’s books, and comics from a wide variety of publishers, including Disney Lucasfilm Press, IDW Publishing, Marvel and Del Rey. There will be something for everyone! “We are so excited to be opening up such a rich, fertile…

New Star Wars Trilogy Could Be On the Way

New Star Wars Trilogy

It has been over a year since we found out a new Star Wars series was coming from Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Now we have news that leads us to believe it can be a trilogy. This comes from HBO network president Casey Bloys. If you’re wondering what comes next after Star Wars 9, this could be it!

Star Wars Episode IX – Release Date & More

Star Wars Episode IX – Release Date & More

December 2018 held a certain significance, I’m sure the same can be said for many people for many reasons, however, for fans of the Star Wars movie saga it became the first time in the past four years without a new Star Wars movie to enthuse about, see, and discuss. Initially scheduled for a May 24 release, the hotly anticipated Star Wars: Episode IX denotes the end of a trilogy; a new chapter which began with JJ Abrahams’ December 17, 2015 release of The Force Awakens, followed by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Not part of the trilogy), with Episode 8 – The Last Jedi having relayed the second part of the adventure on December 14, 2017, and the trilogy will now come to a close with the bumped back, more traditional Christmas release window of Episode IX on December 20, 2019.

The Guide to Star Wars Porn Parodies

As with any cultural phenomenon, Star Wars has porn parodies. A lot of them. Turns out that there is something ridiculously kinky about watching some aliens ‘go at it’ on camera. But, alas, we are not ones to judge. While it is impossible for us to go over every single Star Wars porn parody that has ever popped up over the years, we do have a few ‘favourites’. Star Babe This is actually a unique porn film. Apparently, it realized that Star Wars would be a cultural success and was launched the same year. However, it does not follow the same plot as the movie. You do get introduced to Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper, who of course end up using the ‘force’ on a hot babe. Wookies also make an appearance. Sex Wars Now we are getting more into the ‘actual’ Star Wars territory with this 1986 porn parody….

The Latest Star Wars Fan Films To Hit The Scene

After the successful reboot of the Star Wars franchise, and with the dizzying profits made by The Last Jedi, a new surge of fan films are now hitting the open public, and there are some truly remarkable ones worth checking out. These include both live action and CGI-based, and almost all of the latest fan films on the market are centred around the Stormtroopers, taking a deeper, more personal look at their missions and their allegiances. Keep in mind that many of these fan films don’t follow the official film canon, and instead choose to use the unofficial canon as inspiration, which has deviated greatly since the rebooted series made its debut. The recent surge in Star Wars-related entertainment has seen a number of markets give rise to entirely new brands and franchises based off of the world’s favourite space opera. From video games, clothing, and even casino games, such…
