The Rise Of Skywalker

Every generation has a legend. And all great sagas must come to an end. Such is the fate for Star Wars, who has been telling us the story of the Skywalker story since 1977. Over forty years later, Disney and Lucasfilm will bring that saga to a close with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. During Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, the cast and crew took to the stage to give us our first look at the upcoming and highly anticipated final chapter of the Skywalker story. Check it out below.

Star Wars The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley and director J.J. Abrams

One has to wonder what a Star Wars: Episode IX would have looked like under Colin Trevorrow‘s direction. But he was no longer attached to the project before production could even start. J.J. Abrams was then signed on to direct his second Star Wars feature.

But for a franchise that looked like it was going to have different directors attached, Disney and Lucasfilm must have made a very enticing offer to the filmmaker. That’s because Abrams almost turned down Star Wars: Episode IX. More on the report below.

Star Wars Old Republic

With a franchise as big and expansive as Star Wars, there are a number of things filmmakers could adapt that are outside of the Skywalker saga. And with the Skywalker saga coming to a close later this year in Episode IX, fans can look forward to other and possibly more exciting stories that go far beyond the conflicts between the Jedi and the Sith.

But there is also a lot of history to look back on, and that could be the basis of the film series from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. According to new rumors, their trilogy could be based on The Old Republic, the popular MMORPG game which takes place some 4,000 years before the Galactic Empire was established. More on the report below.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Disney will have no trouble finding any TV series for their new streaming service Disney+. Along with Disney, Pixar, and Marvel titles, they also have access to Star Wars, which gives more people a reason to add yet another subscription to their bills. And with film production simmering down, there is the possibility that some titles that were being groomed for a theatrical release could be remodeled for a TV format.

Case in point, Obi-Wan Kenobi. A film centered around the character had been in development, and was rumored to be a part of the spinoffs that Disney and Lucasfilm would have released. However, in the wake of Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s under performance at the box office, it looks like the Jedi knight will find a new home. More on the report below.

Rian Johnson Directing Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Late last night, a number of clickbait sites ran with a report that said The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson would be walking away from his own trilogy of Star Wars films due to creative differences.

With movie sites and social media quickly reacting to the rumor, Johnson himself took to Twitter to squash the rumor and confirmed that he will be working on the trilogy as soon as he is finished working on Knives Out. More on the report below.

Star Wars: Lando's Luck by Justina Ireland

Star Wars: Lando’s Luck
Star Wars: Flight of the Falcon Series
Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
Written by Justina Ireland
Illustrated by Annie Wu
Audiobook narrated by Soneela Nankani
Publisher: Disney Lucasfilm Press
Release date: October 2, 2018

Lando Calrissian has always been one of my favorite characters in the Star Wars universe. He’s a gambler, a swindler, a pilot, a warrior, a general, and he’s probably the only person that can make Han Solo blush. From that first moment on Bespin in The Empire Strikes Back when Billy Dee Williams faced off with Harrison Ford, that was it for me. And I have not been disappointed with his portrayals in any subsequent movie or book… and, yes, Donald Glover nailed it.

So, given the opportunity to review Star Wars: Lando’s Luck, a book dedicated to Lando, I jumped at the chance.
