Guest Editorial: Did George Lucas Consider the Expanded Universe Canon?

The following is a guest editorial by ForceWave-1139.   Ever since Marvel Comics’ Star Wars #7: New Planets, New Perils! (cover-dated January 1978) and Alan Dean Foster’s novel Splinter of the Mind’s Eye (1978), the licensing world of Star Wars expanded to cover all forms of media; novels, comics, cartoons, video games, radio dramas, and even […]

Editorial: The Rise of Skywalker Teaser Is an Emotional Medley of Nostalgia and Newness That Brought Me to Tears

“No one’s ever really gone.”   A quote that will likely hold as a staple for the recent trilogy of Star Wars movies, and I am selfishly taking it for myself, beyond the context of its purpose in the story.   I must admit, I don’t believe in reaction videos, I often think they are […]

Peter Mayhew Didn’t Become Chewbacca, Chewbacca Became Peter Mayhew

Star Wars creator George Lucas recently spoke about Peter Mayhew in wake of the Chewbacca actor’s passing. Lucas scrolls through many familiar anecdotes about Peter and Chewie you may have already heard through the years. But there is one touching aspect to all of this that was new to me. Chewbacca was originally intended to […]

Guest Editorial: Clarifying J.J. Abrams’ Recent Statements on Rian Johnson’s Direction With The Last Jedi

A recent interview with J.J. Abrams, published by Fast Company, has once again fueled the flames of controversy around the sequel trilogy, about how “Rian Johnson threw away what J.J. set up in The Force Awakens.” In this article, guest writer ForceWave-1139 sets out to provide some clarity on this issue, looking back at some past interviews […]

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 […]
