Did you feel that? There has been a great disturbance in the Force. As if millions of Rey theorists suddenly cried out in terror... and were suddenly silenced. Well, actually, they're probably about to start shrieking about clones and Kenobis and whatnot again, because actor Simon Pegg just reignited the debate around Rey's parentage.

In the last three years, we've had three Star Wars movies come out - and a fourth is just months away. Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm has presented a huge boon in terms of new Star Wars material, but when is it all too much? Rian Johnson, at least, has some heartening thoughts about how to avoid Star Wars overload.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi might have ended with Rey and Finn hugging it out after spending the entire movie apart, but I've remained afraid that something would drive them apart again. Luckily, we can all rest easy. John Boyega has confirmed that the rebellious duo are stuck like glue from here on out.
Poe Dameron deserved so much more than a light slap on the face in response to his gross insubordination during Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is part of what makes this blooper supercut of the multiple times Carrie Fisher had to dramatically hit Oscar Isaac while filming so satisfying. Clearly, they were both having fun.
Huxley Berg Studios' rendition of the throne room fight from Star Wars: The Last Jedi in LEGO wasn't too bad. However, if you want to see something more official and professional, not only has Disney released its own, LEGO-packed attempt, it also crams in the rest of the movie in less than three minutes.
When it comes to protecting secrets, Disney and Lucasfilm are always extra careful. For example, concept art of Han Solo's death wasn't included in The Force Awakens Art Of book. It was included two years later in The Last Jedi Art Of book. So, if we go by that, what you see below may just be your first look at the Episode IX Art Of book, because these are some massive Last Jedi spoilers.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi has finally made its way to home release this month, packed with featurettes, commentaries, and deleted scenes that enhance our understanding of the film. But this month also saw the movie enter another form: a novelisation that adds more to The Last Jedi even beyond its deleted scenes.
If any one thing about The Last Jedi has been contentious -- actually, no, strike that, everything about The Last Jedi has been contentious, including its approach to space combat (the Holdo Manoeuvre, anyone?). But according to one fan and critic, Rian Johnson's epic actually makes space combat in the Star Wars universe more explicable, not less.
The home media release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi is jam-packed with goodies, many of which we've covered on the site already, such as Mark Hamill and Rian Johnson's different opinions on Luke Skywalker, the Captain Phasma deleted scene, and Johnson's motivations behind some of the film's bigger, more controversial moments. But there's a lot more.
From porgs to fathiers to, uh, green milk-dispensing thala-sirens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi had its fair share of unique fauna. Topping that list in the elegance department are the breathtaking crystal foxes of Crait. While entirely CG in the film, designers took a very low-tech approach when trying to get a "feel" for the fictional creatures.
For many Star Wars fans, a moment almost as exciting as the actual film debut is when it gets a home release. That's when all the deleted scenes come out, adding colour and context to the story. In the case of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there were a few moments left on the cutting room floor that seem pretty important (or at least interesting) in hindsight.
