Rise of the Resistance Is as Much a Star Wars Story as It Is a Theme Park Ride

Rise of the Resistance Is as Much a Star Wars Story as It Is a Theme Park Ride

There’s no doubt that stepping into Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge feels like you’re stepping into the Star Wars universe. But up until now, that’s been a mostly passive experience . Starting today, it’s anything but.

Today, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opens at Disneyland in California, joining Walt Disney World in Florida in now both having complete versions of the popular themed lands (aka...

Report: Taika Waititi May Be Developing a Star Wars Movie

Serious question: Does Taika Waititi ever sleep? We’ve long had our suspicions about the very busy writer-director-actor for some time now, but the latest nugget of news about the Oscar nominee hints at yet another major project in the works—one that could return him to a certain galaxy far, far away.

The Hollywood Reporter cites “sources” that claim Waititi “has been approached to develop a...

The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian's Fascinating Approaches to Star Wars Fan Service

The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian's Fascinating Approaches to Star Wars Fan Service

For better or worse , it is not unfair to describe either of Star Wars’ most recent major projects—at the box office, the climax of the saga, The Rise of Skywalker ; and on streaming, the culmination of years of attempts to bring live-action Star Wars to the small screen, The Mandalorian —as stories that deeply engage in fan service. But what differentiates their use of it makes for some...

The Story Behind One of Star Wars' Most Recognizable Posters

The Story Behind One of Star Wars' Most Recognizable Posters

If two people made one of the most iconic Star Wars posters ever in less than two days, wouldn’t you want to hear that story?

Directors Erik Sharkey and Kevin Burke hope that piques your interest because they’re making a documentary about artist Greg Hildebrandt. Hildebrandt and his twin brother Tim rose to prominence in the 1970s when they became two of the most prolific fantasy artists in...

Colin Trevorrow's Alleged Star Wars Episode IX Ending Features Some Familiar Themes

Colin Trevorrow's Alleged Star Wars Episode IX Ending Features Some Familiar Themes

The worst thing about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker not being universally beloved is it makes people ask “What if?” What if other decisions had been made? Could the movie have been improved? These kinds of questions feel natural with this movie in particular because Colin Trevorrow, the original director and co-writer, left the project years before it was released.

In the days since the...

Some Trump Supporters Are Using Baby Yoda (of All Things) to Promote MAGA

Some Trump Supporters Are Using Baby Yoda (of All Things) to Promote MAGA

There’s been a disturbance in the Force.

In the days immediately after Baby Yoda made his first appearance on The Mandalorian, there was a mad rush for merch and people were dismayed to see how little there was to be had. So people did what people are wont to do and began making their own. Even though there’s now plenty of official Baby Yoda stuff on the way, that hasn’t stopped people from...

The Moment Luke Skywalker's Legend Became Ben Solo's Greatest Specter

The Moment Luke Skywalker's Legend Became Ben Solo's Greatest Specter

The fall of Ben Solo is a path littered with regrets . Luke’s fleeting impulse to cut down the darkness in his own student, the shadow of expectation born from his father, his mother, and the bloodline an entire galaxy can’t seem to escape from, let alone a young man plagued by voices in the dark. But this week’s new Star Wars comic gives us an image of Luke that would be burned into Ben’s...

ABC Wants to Make More Marvel TV Shows and Plans on Talking to Kevin Feige About It

With ABC’s Agents of SHIELD on the way out , Disney’s biggest TV network will soon be without a marquee superhero show. The network hopes to change that soon though and knows just the man to speak to about it.

“We love our partners at Marvel and we’re sad to see [Agents of SHIELD ] go, it’s been a big part of our history,” ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke said this week. “We’re looking...

The Rise of Skywalker's LGBTQ Moment Is Held Back By the Film's Bland Heteronormativity

Star Wars finally did it. It may have taken over four decades—and at least four of those years  promising it—but The Rise of Skywalker managed to depict queer characters in the galaxy far, far away on the big screen. It was...barely even a Baby Yoda step (better than Disney’s other representation attempt of 2019 in Avengers: Endgame ), but it’s what surrounds that moment that makes it all the...

One of The Rise of Skywalker's Most Important Leia Scenes Hides a Beautiful Easter Egg

Regardless of how you feel about The Rise of Skywalker , its integration of the dearly-missed Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa can leave even the most taciturn of Star Wars fans a little misty-eyed . But one of its most lovely scenes with Leia carries a touching behind-the-scenes Easter Egg not just for fans, but for her daughter and Star Wars co-star, Billie Lourd.

How a Star Wars Fan Learned to Stop Worrying and Accept Not Liking Rise of Skywalker

How a Star Wars Fan Learned to Stop Worrying and Accept Not Liking Rise of Skywalker

For the past few weeks, I’ve been telling fans who love Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker that I was happy for them. That’s only part of the truth. The full truth is: I’m happy they found enjoyment in the film , yes, but I’m also filled with jealousy. Because I, a lifelong Star Wars fan, absolutely did not like the movie and I really, really wish I had.

I’ve seen The Rise of Skywalker three...

When, Exactly, Did Palpatine Fuck?

When, Exactly, Did Palpatine Fuck?

Someone in the galaxy far, far away, looked at a man named Sheev Palpatine—Chancellor of the Republic, walking prune, fascist ruler of the Galactic Empire, evil space wizard—and, in their best Lando Calrissian impression, went “Hello, what have we here?”

This is a thing we know. But the real question isn’t really if Sheev did the deed . It’s more about when.

Well, there you have it. The story of Anakin and Luke Skywalker, the fall of the Republic and the rise and fall of the Empire, the life and death and life of Emperor Palpatine. It’s over, more or less. The nine films of the Skywalker Saga tell the core Star Wars story George Lucas started in the ‘70s, from beginning to end.

How Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Is a Quintessential J.J. Abrams Movie

How Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Is a Quintessential J.J. Abrams Movie

Every director has a style. J.J. Abrams has one of the most distinct in modern Hollywood, full of frantic energy and eager forward momentum. Which can be good things. They can also be bad things, too.

In a new video, critic Just Write does a compelling job examining Abrams’s distinct style and how The Rise of Skywalker —negatively, in his view—exemplifies all the excesses of J.J.’s house...
