Last year, Marvel launched their new Star Wars comics by offering remastered editions of the original comic book adaptations. Well…  next March, Lusasfilm Press will release a brand new graphic novel adaptation of the original trilogy (AKA “A New Hope Strikes the Jedi”)!

The new International STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS trailer sheds more light on the story

Star Wars Daisy Ridley

I thought the most recent trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was very pretty and artfully made, I also thought it did a not so great job actually selling the movie that its leading up to. Abrams and Disney know that they already have at least 2 billion in the bank at this point, […]

SDCC’15: Star Wars will indeed be in Hall H this year


Here’s a bit of a shock; given that Marvel Studios (the feature film division anyway) reportedly won’t have a presence at San Diego Comic Con this year, you figure it’d be safe to assume that LucasFilm/Disney would save Star Wars for D23 as well. You know what they say about assuming… Lucasfilm announced today that […]

Between Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie, Chris Pratt was probably THE action/adventure star of 2014. With Jurassic World coming up in June and The Magnificent Seven about to begin shooting, that momentum doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon. If Disney has their way, we may very well see Pratt attached […]

This means Disney now effectively own properties including Star Wars, Indiana Jones…. Willow, and several others. And what are they going to do with this? According to reports, their first move was to […]
