When you think of Star Wars, you think of lightsabers. Sure, you think of spaceships and the Force and stuff like that too but, in terms of iconic visuals, few things in science fiction at large, let alone Star Wars, are as iconic as the lightsaber.
Another era of Star Wars has drawn to an end.
There are more than a million star systems in the Star Wars galaxy, and maybe about 20 of them have a decent father in them.
A new Star Wars movie is out, and for better or worse, that always means there’s also a host of new tie-in material released which can explain or clarify some questions left lingering after the credits rolled. The Rise of Skywalker is no exception, and its own “Visual Dictionary” guidebook is jam-packed with little nuggets of intriguing lore.
It’s that special time of year when we all have a chance to look forward to all the shows set to return in the coming months, buzz around upcoming movies is reaching new levels of intensity, and for some reason, studios decide to try and work real-world Earth holiday traditions their decidedly non-Earth based fantasy worlds. Let’s get into some holiday spoilers, folks.
Before Star Wars belonged to Disney, it belonged to Kathleen Kennedy. George Lucas himself picked the legendary producer to run his beloved namesake, Lucasfilm, before Mickey Mouse swooped in and bought it all up. And at that time the plan was always this: A new trilogy of films, which ends later this month in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Encyclopedias could be filled by dissecting the relationship between Rey and Kylo Ren. And not just their connection, but the fact that Rey doesn’t know her parents and longs for them, while Ren knows his and rejects them. By the time of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, it seems the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa has all but destroyed the part of him called Ben Solo in favour of Supreme Leader Kylo Ren. Or at least that’s what we’re led to assume.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a very fun film, but one of its most common critiques is that it essentially re-does A New Hope for a new generation—similar themes, similar arcs, similar aesthetics, just remixed. J.J. Abrams is not one to shy away from acknowledging that, but he does think his time away from Star Wars helped him realise he can do more for the final entry in the saga.
Blue milk is obviously the superstar when you think of Star Wars food. But rising up the charts, literally, is the bread Rey makes in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Although that concoction, officially named Polystarch, is not available in the Black Spire Outpost (otherwise known as Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge), a new cookbook has the recipe — and Gizmodo has the reveal.
The Last Jedi sent a message to the Star Wars fandom that, at least from the filmmakers’ perspective, the Skywalkers’ story was ready to come to a close. It was a bold pivot from the nostalgic direction The Force Awakens appeared to be taking the franchise in, and unsurprisingly, it left many hardcore fans of the original trilogy beside themselves with displeasure.
The first season of Star Wars Resistance ended Sunday night with a dogfight for the ages. Kaz and his friends took to the skies in an all-out battle to liberate the Colossus from the First Order, all while being mindful that the galaxy as they know it has completely changed with the recent destruction of the New Republic.
The moment Star Wars Resistance finally crossed over with The Force Awakens changed everything for both stories. In the movie, when Starkiller Base destroyed the planets of the New Republic, the Resistance realised it was all on its own. At the same time, on Star Wars Resistance, Kazuda Xiono just watched the same thing occur.
With BB-8 hanging out over on Star Wars Resistance, we knew a time would come when Poe Dameron would have pick him up and head off to Jakku to get the sequel trilogy started. That time is now.
