So Long Princess: A Tribute to Carrie Fisher

It has been two years since Carrie Fisher passed away. This was our tribute to her. Over the course of forty years, Carrie Fisher has brought Leia to life in the Star Wars saga. Her final performance will take place in The Last Jedi, book-ending her legacy as the mold-breaking, trend setting, badass Princess and […]

Editorial/Speculation – The Lost Prince of Alderaan: The Fall and Redemption of Ben Solo, Part Two

Before we continue our deep-dive into the potential redemption of Ben Solo in Episode IX, I’d recommend you read the first part of this editorial series, which speculates on the specifics of Ben’s transformation to Kylo Ren.  Though I don’t believe J.J. Abrams is going to retread over Ben’s turn to Kylo in IX, I felt it […]

Editorial/Speculation – The Lost Prince of Alderaan: The Fall and Redemption of Ben Solo, Part One

Whatever your opinions of Kylo Ren, it’s hard to argue that his story is not one the more compelling facets of the sequel trilogy. The heir apparent to the Skywalker bloodline and all the baggage that comes with it, I wasn’t terribly shocked when Snoke pronounced him the son of Han Solo during my first […]

Editorial: Who is ‘The Mandalorian’?

In light of the recent news concerning the premise of the upcoming Star Wars live-action series, The Mandalorian, we thought it prudent to explore the possibilities surrounding the show, specifically with regard to Mandalorian culture and the identity of the show’s main character. There seems to be a lot of confusion about the show going […]

Mark Hamill Filming Knightfall Season 2 – What Does This Mean For Star Wars Episode IX?

In a bit of Star Wars-related news that’s not directly Star Wars news, Mark Hamill will play another kind of knight in the form of Talus, a big addition to the cast of Lionsgate and The History Channel’s Knightfall, which has just been renewed for a second season (and no, it’s not the name of a Star Wars […]

Updated With Full Audio: SWNN Interview – Hasbro Directors Discuss Upcoming Projects, Confirm Plans for a “Crait” Luke Figure, and More

From the revival of The Clone Wars series to the onslaught of new Star Wars books announced at the Disney/Lucasfilm publishing panel, there were a lot of really cool Star Wars announcements last week at SDCC. But perhaps one of the most fun things for many Star Wars fans is getting to see what new […]

Editorial: Colin Trevorrow’s Episode IX Departure Looks Like a Good Move After Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Back when it was first announced that Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow would be directing Star Wars Episode IX, some fans had reservations. Others – myself included – felt as though Trevorrow nailed directing a worthy successor to the original Jurassic Park, even if the movie had questionable writing in certain places (Spec op dinosaurs! High heels!). But […]

Editorial: A Critique on Disney’s Change in Direction for the Star Wars Spin-Offs

Recently, news got out that in the wake of Solo‘s underperformance, Disney has allegedly halted development of a few Star Wars spin-offs. While John was more optimistic about this decision in his piece, I have some concerns about it that I feel may represent the other side of the argument. Grant Davis (Pomojema)Grant has been a […]

EDITORIAL: Why a Young Princess Leia Live-Action Story Could Actually Be a Good Idea

We are currently looking forward to the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the next live-action movie showcasing the adventures of a young Han Solo and other familiar faces like Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian. Many of us are still wondering if latest rumors true that the next stand-alone film will be about Obi-Wan Kenobi. […]

Editorial: Why Marvel’s Kevin Feige Should NOT Take Over Lucasfilm From Kathleen Kennedy

Ever since backlash against Disney’s Star Wars has gained more of a foothold over certain portions of the internet, there have been calls for Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy to resign – even though, I might add, she has produced 4 movies that made upwards of $4B globally and were all critical successes, with only one release […]

Editorial: Why Solo’s Underperformance is Not the End of the World

So Solo‘s second weekend at the box office has come and gone, and from the looks of things it’s not going to be the sleeper hit of the Summer. Granted, the post-Memorial Day drop is usually pretty brutal for a lot of films, but Solo‘s sophomore weekend numbers don’t inspire a lot of confidence for its […]

EDITORIAL: Why Darth Vader Should Be in Jon Favreau’s Live-Action Star Wars Series

Upon the announcement that Jon Favreau would be producing and writing a live-action Star Wars TV series, fans began to speculate and wonder what the series will be about. I have thought about this a lot, and this is just speculation on my part, but I have thoughts on what we may be in store […]
