Toys and CollectiblesAction figures, statues, exclusives, and other merchandise. Beware: if you look here, you’re probably going to spend some money afterwards.  

This honestly might be the best thing to come out of Solo: A Star Wars Story, given the movie managed to kill off most of the other good things about it.

Sam Witwer Is Surprised and Delighted to Keep Returning to His Major Star Wars Role

Sam Witwer Is Surprised and Delighted to Keep Returning to His Major <i>Star Wars </i>Role

Just when you think you’re out, the galaxy far, far away keeps pulling you right back in.

Yesterday, I shared the now-infamous clip from Solo where Witwer reprises his vocal role as the formerly-Darth Maul, dubbing over Ray Park in order to bring the character to live action in a way that preserves continuity with the animated shows, where Witwer’s Maul has brought new life to the character....

¿Recuerdas la primera vez que vimos las imágenes del Halcón Milenario en Solo: A Star Wars Story? Todo el mundo perdió los papeles porque parecía muy diferente al Halcón Milenario que habíamos visto en otras películas. Pero, por supuesto, existía un plan sobre cómo ese Halcón, propiedad de Lando...

Watch Lando's Falcon Become Han's in a New Video From Industrial Light & Magic

Watch Lando's Falcon Become Han's in a New Video From Industrial Light & Magic

Remember when we first saw images of the Millennium Falcon in Solo: A Star Wars Story? Everyone freaked out because it looked so different from the Falcon of the past. But, of course, there was a plan in place for how that Falcon, owned by Lando Calrissian, would turn into the one we knew  from when it was owned by Han Solo.

That plan can be seen in this new video from the visual effects...

Kieron Gillen's Star Wars Run Put a Fascinating Spotlight on One of Rogue One's Most Interesting Legacies

Kieron Gillen's Star Wars Run Put a Fascinating Spotlight on One of Rogue One's Most Interesting Legacies

When Darth Vader writer Kieron Gillen joined Marvel’s main Star Wars title, many perhaps would’ve expected a continuation of the themes he had explored there. But over the course of his run alongside artists Salvador Larroca and Angel Unzueta—which concluded with last week’s Star Wars #67—a far more interesting exploration emerged of an altogether different Star Wars story.

As it turns out,...

Lucasarts trabajaba en una película de Han Solo en solitario mucho antes de que Disney les comprara

Lucasarts trabajaba en una película de Han Solo en solitario mucho antes de que Disney les comprara

En mayo de este año llega a los cines Solo: A Star Wars Story. La película que cuenta el origen del legendario contrabandista parece un proyecto reciente, pero resulta que no lo es. Su guionista, Lawrence Kasdan, acaba de revelar que el guión del film se remonta a antes de que Disney comprara Lucasarts.

The Ultimate Legacy of Solo ls the Death of Star Wars Tradition

The Ultimate Legacy of Solo ls the Death of Star Wars Tradition

Solo: A Star Wars Story was released one year ago this weekend—and in that year, it changed Star Wars in ways that have nothing to do with the Force. It changed how one generation views Star Wars versus the other.

How did that happen? Well, you have to go back to the beginning. Production on Solo was famously troubled and, though many rather enjoyed it , its box office grosses were by far the...

A Look Inside the New Book Exploring the Making of Solo: A Star Wars Story

A Look Inside the New Book Exploring the Making of Solo: A Star Wars Story

The story behind how Solo came to life is...well, a lot more intriguing than Lucasfilm would want it to be. And while Abrams Books’ latest Star Wars “making of” release may not have the full story you’d perhaps want to hear about Solo specifically, its plethora of behind-the-scenes images paint an intimate picture nonetheless.

Written by ILM visual effects supervisor and co-producer Rob...

Spider-Verse and Black Panther Each Earned Some Gold at the 2019 Academy Awards

Spider-Verse and Black Panther Each Earned Some Gold at the 2019 Academy Awards

Though we didn’t win any of the “big” awards, last night’s Oscars was a good night to be a geek.

Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature—and the directors were trying to thank Marvel comic creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko near the end of their speech but were cut off by the show. Black Panther won three Oscars , the first three in the history of Marvel...

Una serie de Obi-Wan Kenobi, y no una película, estaría en desarrollo para Disney+

Una serie de Obi-Wan Kenobi, y no una película, estaría en desarrollo para Disney+

Llevamos mucho tiempo escuchando rumores acerca de la posibilidad de que Obi-Wan Kenobi tuviera su propia película, algo que parecía mucho más factible desde que Lucasfilm comenzó a estrenar películas spin-off de Star Wars. Pero, después de todo, Obi-Wan podría tener una serie y no una película, exclusiva de Disney+.

Esta es la primera imagen de The Mandalorian junto a la lista de directores...

According to a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Moore tells the story of auditioning for Lord and Miller for Lando Calrissian in...

Phil Lord and Chris Miller Explain How Leaving Solo Made Spider-Verse and The Lego Movie 2 Better

The fact that we’ll never see a Phil Lord and Chris Miller Han Solo movie is still hard to swallow. Whether you like the Ron Howard film or not , fans will forever imagine what the directors of 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie would have done with that script.

And yet, there’s a trade-off. Lord and Miller produced both Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part,...

Black Panther, Into the Spider-Verse, and More of Our Favorites React to Their Oscar Nominations

After Oscar nominations come out, it’s easy to get lost in them. The snubs, the surprises, what’s in, what’s out...there’s a lot to digest. Because of that, sometimes you forget the sheer joy these nominations bring the people involved, whether it’s a personal nod or one for a project they were a part of.

Let’s focus on that. Below, we grabbed a few of our favorite social media reactions to...

Disney's Star Wars Land Is Getting Its Own Comic, Because of Course It Is

This is absolutely the world we live in now, when it comes to the “everything is connected and matters” take Disney and Lucasfilm have with Star Wars beyond the realms of TV and movies. It’s given us some good stuff, absolutely, but now it’s giving us Star Wars: The Theme Park: The Comic Book.

StarWars.com has revealed Disney theme parks’ rapidly-incoming Star Wars land—officially dubbed Star...

Yes, You Will Love This Hilarious Star Wars Video

Yes, You Will Love This Hilarious Star Wars Video

They’re two of the first words we ever learn. We use them every day and, in many cases, probably don’t even think about it. They can be used to agree to life-changing events or get out of horrible situations. They can also be used to hilarious effect when edited and counted in all 10 Star Wars movies.

I’m talking, of course, of “Yes” and “No.” And the new Star Wars Kids YouTube put up an...

Here’s How Industrial Light & Magic Created Solo's L3-37

L3-37, Lando’s co-pilot and droid companion, was one of the breakout characters of Solo . Here’s how she came to be.

According to a new video by ILMVisualFX, L3’s appearance in the movie is a complex interplay of practical effects and CGI. Her actress, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, played L3 in costume on set, which was then integrated into CGI to create a convincing hybrid image that looks and moves...
