George Lucas Star Wars

After Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012, Star Wars creator George Lucas thought that the studio would be using some of his drafts and stories to develop a brand new trilogy. However, a new memoir by Disney CEO Bob Iger tells us otherwise. Despite the fact that Lucas stayed on as a creative consultant, Disney went in an entirely different direction with the Star Wars franchise and moved forward with Star Wars: The Force Awakens from writer and director J.J. Abrams and co-writers Michael Arndt and Lawrence Kasdan.

Now excerpts from said memoir reveal how unhappy Lucas was with that decision. More on this below.

The Mandalorian Star Wars

There has never been live-action Star Wars television series. But come November, that will all change when The Mandalorian will debut along with a number of other original shows on Disney+, Disney’s exclusive streaming service. This will be one of Disney’s flagship shows that can only be seen on Disney+, and the studio hopes to use all of that anticipation and excitement to draw subscribers to their service.

Star Wars fans got a first look at The Mandalorian earlier this year when showrunner and executive producer Jon Favreau presented some footage and shared some info about the show. Now he’s back, with the debut of the teaser trailer; plus, and he brought along some of the cast to the D23 Expo today to show off what they can expect to see.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

For a long time, Star Wars fans have hoped that Ewan McGregor would reprise the role of Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi in a spinoff film. While the spinoff rumors were met with mixed results, there was an increased amount of optimism when it was announced that Disney would be launching Disney+, the studio’s exclusive streaming service. With The Mandalorian and the untitled Cassian Andor series already confirmed, there seemed to be more than enough room for other Star Wars titles to exist on the streaming platform.

Now it has been confirmed that there will be an Obi-Wan series, and that it will see McGregor return to the role that he played in the prequels. More on the reports below.

Rey (Daisy Ridley) in Star Wars: Episode IX

There is an immense amount of anticipation when it comes to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The film is the last entry in the Skywalker saga and brings to a close to a nine-chapter story arc that first started back in 1977. While we may be bidding one final farewell to these characters, much of the story remains a mystery.

We only got a small tease of what’s to come a few weeks back at Star Wars Celebration, where we saw the first teaser for the upcoming film. Of course, fans were excited to hear the Luke Skywalker voice over, that Lando Calrissian laugh, and a very tearful Rey embracing General Leia. But the one thing that got fans riled up was the Emperor’s laugh. The menacing character has been a dark and evil fixture since the original trilogy.

Now we are getting yet another look at the film. So to speak. It’s another behind the scenes look from Vanity Fair’s Annie Leibovitz, whose engaging photos provide an intimate look at the production of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Check out the new gallery, plus what some of the cast and crew had to say below.

Star Wars Title Logo

There has been some debate as to which Star Wars films will follow Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. We knew that Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson was developing a new trilogy and that Game of Thrones creators and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were developing their own project. But we didn’t know which would come first. The recent release of Disney’s film release schedule didn’t reveal any clue as to which one would hit theaters first either, but it did show us that we will be getting at least three films in the coming years.

But now Bob Iger has revealed that Benioff and Weiss’s project will be the next Star Wars film we see after The Rise of Skywalker. See what he had to say below.

‘Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker’ Director J.J. Abrams Is Fully Aware Of Those “Who Are Rey’s Parents” Questions

Rey (Daisy Ridley) in Star Wars: Episode IX

The matter of who Rey’s parents are has always been on Star Wars fans’ minds ever since Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released. Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi, revealed that she comes from nothing because her parents were “filthy junk traders” who sold her off for drinking money and that she comes from nothing. But it may not have been the definitive answer many were looking for. Many still want to believe that she has some sort of familial connection to a character within the Star Wars universe.

Some people have their theories. But it seems like we will get something more concrete in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. At least, that’s according to director J.J. Abrams. Check out what he had to say below.

Emperor Palpatine

Star Wars Celebration is finally behind us. But even after watching the explosive first trailer for Episode IX, now officially titled Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, watching the panel, and listening to interviews there are still a lot of questions that have gone unanswered. While many of us have already theorized on what the title could mean, another question on everybody’s mind is what does Emperor Palpatine’s menacing laugh at the end of the teaser trailer mean for our heroes.

After the trailer was shown to attendees the lights came on to reveal Ian McDiarmid, the actor who has portrayed Palpatine since The Return of the Jedi and in all of the subsequent prequels. It pretty much confirmed that the Sith Lord would be back, at least in some capacity. While this was a surprise to many of us, the move was in the works for a long time. More on the report below.
