It appears that BBC is at Malin Head and we could expect some nice reports in the following days:




A fantastic in-depth documentary about Bioware and how they were creating the Star Wars video games:







Luke never ever seeing his friend Han again was something that really bothered me the most after TFA. Really sad:

Happy Birthday Domhnall Gleeson!

    pablo confirmed that the story of a young girl who finds her way in the force was left by george.. and people still think rey isn’t a skywalker? are you kidding me..

    • May 13, 2016 at 7:53 pm

      It’s not that… It just seems too obvious.

      • May 14, 2016 at 4:28 am

        Maybe that’s not the twist, maybe it’s something else. People weren’t even looking for a twist when ESB came out, now they look for it all the time.

        • May 14, 2016 at 9:40 am

          I think part of the problem is that audiences will be actively looking for a good twist in this new trilogy at some point, and if they end up not doing a twist then that will piss people off. Likewise, if they end up doing a twist that isn’t clever, creative, or is too different from what they were expecting but different in a negative way, audiences will be pissed off.

          I feel like any of these new Star Wars movies have a damned if you do, damned if you don’t outlook ascribed to them.

          • May 14, 2016 at 9:54 am

            because there are whiny fans that make problems out of everything.. why can’t we all just enjoy the films?

          • May 14, 2016 at 5:12 pm

            That would be too easy for everyone in the fandom. now wouldn’t it. 🙂

          • May 14, 2016 at 2:59 pm

            No matter what they do, it always pisses people off. Some people being pissed off by SW is granted.

          • May 14, 2016 at 5:11 pm

            Well they shouldn’t, they are just movies and stories.

      • May 14, 2016 at 7:31 am

        Maybe the twist is there is no twist, what looks too easy looks that way because it is in fact, true.

  • May 13, 2016 at 8:13 pm

    My favorite was Mark Hamill posting the no underwear in space stuff xD

  • May 13, 2016 at 8:55 pm

    You forgot when Pablo straight up said that Snoke isn’t Plagueis.

    • May 13, 2016 at 9:08 pm

      denial… the first step. all the stubborn plagueis supporters are still holding onto the idea.. even though it has been said in black and white that it isn’t true…. xD

      • May 13, 2016 at 11:23 pm

        Of course it’s not true. Snoke is the reincarnation of Yoda!!! XD

        • May 14, 2016 at 9:53 am

          nailed it

      • May 14, 2016 at 1:38 am

        That’s almost as stubborn as all those fanboys who insisted that the desert planet in TFA was Tatooine despite evidence pouring in from MSW and this site suggesting otherwise. (Remember that guys?)

        • May 14, 2016 at 2:14 am

          Thing is, in the end, it may as well have fucking been Tatooine. Exact same environment, living conditions, etc etc, all minus the bustling starport towns which I’m sure were on Jakku somewhere.

          It’s funny how Disney gets the license and promises new Star Wars by giving us TWO new Tatooines.

          • May 14, 2016 at 4:26 am

            Thing is Jakku was a dunes and and flats, Tatooine was dunes, flats, and very rocky areas. We didn’t see any real rocky areas on Jakku. (Doesn’t mean there couldn’t be, just we never saw them.)

          • May 14, 2016 at 9:53 am

            i haven’t read it but in the art of the force awakens book, there is concept art depicting jakku as a water planet with old battle remnants sunken underwater.. imagine how cool and DIFFERENT that would have been.. imagine a star wars world living on a water planet.. would have made the first 30-40 minutes of the film so much more interesting..

        • May 14, 2016 at 4:24 am

          I didn’t think there was all that much evidence that it wasn’t Tatooine until Abrams said it was Jakku at SW Celebration April of last year.

          • May 14, 2016 at 7:07 am

            Look again, there was tons of evidence more than a year before the film’s release. A lot of it was reported in Making Star, as mentioned in my last comment. I might also add that most people scoffed at this site and said “You’re crazy, it possibly cannot be anything else other than Tatooine!”

          • May 14, 2016 at 3:01 pm

            Nobody ever said a planet name, though.

  • May 14, 2016 at 12:48 am

    Wow this was a nice recap. I’ve been slacking a bit on keeping up with Star Wars. Pablo answered so much!

  • May 14, 2016 at 2:17 am

    That TOR documentary is pretty awesome. I just wish I could believe what they said about “things you should do if you want to get into game development”, because all I’m thinking is “you guys are under the EAmbrella, that’s an example of what NOT to do”.

  • May 14, 2016 at 4:00 am

    Since George Lucas brought Darth Maul back from the dead, maybe Disney/Lucasfilm will one day decide to bring back one or a few of the following: Boba Fett, Mace Windu, Darth Plagueis, Darth Vader, Emperor Palpatine, Padme Amidala Naberrie, Obi-Wan enobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, Lor San Tekka, one of the Order 66 victims. Or maybe they will all stay dead. The point is that they could do it if they felt like it. The future is mysterious…

  • May 14, 2016 at 4:14 am

    I wasn’t convinced it was the Falcon before, but now I am, as seen below.

    • May 14, 2016 at 7:57 am

      Sorta looks like Cloud City or Tipoca in the first even though it’s clearly not.

    • May 15, 2016 at 5:42 am

      I find it funny that The Falcon was only built a few times throughout the OT, but it seems like the Falcon has been built like 12 times so far in the ST, even though Episode IX hasn’t even started filming yet.

  • May 14, 2016 at 7:55 am

    Always found it ironic that Lucas’s biggest haters are now the most ardent supporters of the Han Solo film.

    • May 14, 2016 at 3:02 pm

      I haven’t seen anyone super excited for it.

      • May 14, 2016 at 5:35 pm

        They are an extreme minority but they are out there. It has a more uphill battle than TFA, I think most got onboard with VII after the entire OT cast came back and the trailer came out but this film needs a miracle to get everyone interested.

  • May 14, 2016 at 3:30 pm

    Great article, I appreciate the effort you put in, some really interesting stuff here, thanks!

  • May 14, 2016 at 5:35 pm

    Pablo Hidalgo might be the most patient person ever.

    • May 15, 2016 at 5:40 am

      What’s the canon definition of “patient”?
