Let’s clear the misty Ahch-To air.
The visual effects breakdown reels continue to pour out of Hollywood as we get closer to the Academy Awards in March, with Industrial Light & Magic showing the world exactly why it’s won 16 Oscars for Best Visual Effects over the years, and why it thinks it deserves a 17th for its work on Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Rian Johnson is more than happy to do what Chewbacca couldn’t: Devour a porg.
You can complain about The Phantom Menace all you want, but the podrace scene remains one of the best visual spectacles in all the Star Wars movies. It spawned some wonderful toys too, but nothing that comes close to Alexis Dos Santos’ Lego Mindstorms-powered tabletop pod racing game.
Get a brief teaser of Zachary Levi’s Shazam appearance. Our first look at Terry Gilliam’s long-awaited The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is finally here. Some familiar faces will be showing up in Legends of Tomorrow’s season finale. Plus, more footage from Ash vs. Evil Dead’s return, and new iZombie pictures. Spoilers…
Sounds are the unheralded heroes of movies. They flutter into your eardrums without you even realizing it, and become as crucial a part of the experience as anything else. And nowhere is that truer than in Star Wars, where the sound department has to create sounds for things we’ve never seen before.
Earlier this month, we got our long-awaited first trailer for the Han Solo Star Wars spinoff film, and it was actually pretty fine. Not the disaster some fans might have expected given the movie’s tumultuous production, just not the greatest trailer in the world. But it turns out there’s one way to make it pretty dang…
What’s the age cutoff for using a high chair without looking super awkward? I’m hoping it falls somewhere just north of 40 so that I can retrace Matthew Regonini’s steps and build a larger version of this wonderful AT-ST high chair for use in my office.
And you don’t even have to travel to Hoth to see it.
New York Toy Fair has come and gone, leaving us with even more fancy bits of plastic to get excited over in the coming months. Missed out on our coverage? Here’s everything Gizmodo and io9 saw from the show this year!
“When gone am I, the last of the Jedi will you be.” Yoda’s words in Return of the Jedi have long been the text fans cite when thinking about the Jedi in the larger Star Wars universe. Yoda is one of the wisest beings ever, so he’s telling the truth. Any other Jedi who we see in books, TV shows, or movies, must surely…
Good news! Star Wars: The Last Jedi is getting a digital and Blu-ray release next month. Even better news: there’s a ton of deleted scenes included, complete with commentary from director and resident explainer-in-chief, Rian Johnson.
There was a distinct weight and inevitability at the start of Monday’s Star Wars Rebels. With only a few episodes left, it felt like things were about to change. We didn’t know why, we didn’t know how, but all the characters seemed prepared for it.
There is a new Star Wars movie just months away, which means, it’s time for new Star Wars merchandise. Oh, who am I kidding? It’s very clearly always the time for new Star Wars merchandise. Here’s the latest from The Last Jedi, Solo, and all the other Star Wars goodness Hasbro showed at Toy Fair this year.
Today, Hasbro unveiled Haslab, which promises to basically be the toymaker’s answer to Kickstarter, for diehard fans of its toys. The new crowdsourcing program is kicking off with one hell of a project: a 4-foot long, 14lbs intricate recreation of Jabba’s Sail Barge from Return of the Jedi.
There isn’t a lot of writing in the Star Wars universe. Stories seem to mostly be passed along via oral culture—one person telling a story to another, with all the foibles and forgetfulness personal retellings entail. This Star Wars fan film captures all the fun, and all the forgetfulness, of a good retelling.
A list of books coming out tied to Solo: A Star Wars Story will explore Han’s childhood, future wives, relationship with Lando, his son Ben and more.
Women have always been a key part of Star Wars’ mythos, but to hear the way some people reacted to The Last Jedi, you’d think that they feel Star Wars would be better off without any female characters at all. The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams has identifying their real issue.
After three and a half seasons, the final few episodes of Star Wars Rebels will begin airing this Monday, February 19. The show doesn’t have a ton of questions to answer or stories to wrap up—which is possibly unsurprising, since we know its saga is ending shortly before Rogue One and A New Hope begin—but there are…
Star Wars and toys have gone hand in hand ever since the franchise kicked off four decades ago. But usually, it’s the movies dictating what we see on store shelves—not the other way around. But in one particularly odd case, it ended up being that way for The Last Jedi.
