Just before we rang in the new year, production on the first Star Wars spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story wrapped. Now the long wait begins for the first footage. A rumor surfaced earlier this month that the first official trailer will debut in theaters with Captain America: Civil War, but even if that's true, we still have a few months before we get our first look at this anticipated adventure. Thankfully, Entertainment Weekly spotted a number of photos featuring the official costumes from this spinoff, which have surfaced from the Nuremberg Toy Fair. Unfortunately, these photos don't reveal much about the actual story itself. Rogue One is set between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, centering on a group of Rebels who hatch a mission to steal the original Death Star plans. There have been rumors that the iconic villain Darth Vader will have a big role in this story, and there is also speculation that this spinoff will introduce the … [Read more...] about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Costumes Arrive at Nuremberg Toy Fair

Aside from the main plot, we know precious little about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The first spinoff revolves around a group of Rebel soldiers who set out to steal plans for the Death Star. Aside from that, no official characters have been revealed. We know the cast, but not whom they are playing. Then there are the rumors that a number of iconic Star Wars characters will appear at some point in the movie. Darth Vader is said to have a sizable role. And a young Han Solo is expected to make a cameo. But now, we have what could be proof that another original trilogy character may be showing up in some capacity. Yes, it sounds like Boba Fett is going to be showing up at some point in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, even though the character is heavily rumored to be getting his own spinoff in 2020. Even if Boba doesn't show his face, it seems certainly possible that his iconic ship the Slave-1 will be doing a flyby. The idea that Boba Fett is showing up in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is … [Read more...] about Proof That Boba Fett Is in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?
We are inching ever closer to the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. With December 15, 2017 creeping up on us, Lucasfilm is going to be unveiling new merchandise, TV spots and probably one more trailer for the follow up to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, all helping to whet our appetites until the movie finally arrives. Fortunately for us, many of the stars are out promoting other projects, like John Boyega, who is currently on his Detroit press run. That means, he has inevitably been asked about Star Wars 8 and recently, he promised that the movie is going to bring some new ideas to a galaxy far, far away. The actor, who reprises his role as Finn (or FN-2187) in Star Wars: The Last Jedi recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the movie. Obviously, given the shroud of secrecy that Lucasfilm puts over these movies, he couldn't say much. But he did talk a lot about the different energy that director Rian Johnson brings to it and what that means for this entry in the Star Wars … [Read more...] about Last Jedi Will Expand the Star Wars Universe in Crazy New Ways
The heroes in Star Wars love to disguise themselves as villains, and it's a trope that goes all the way back to the 1977 original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. In that movie, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker wear Stormtrooper armor to save Princess Leia from her holding cell on the Death Star. And throughout the franchise, in both the movies and the animated TV series, we've seen other characters follow suit. Now, in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, a couple of the heroes will once again be hiding out in Imperial garb to get their job done. And it will be a direct nod to A New Hope. Only this time, there is a little twist. According to Making Star Wars, there will be a scene in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story where Felicity Jones and Diego Luna's Rebel characters have to go undercover and don disguises. Only this time, they won't be wearing the iconic Stormtrooper Armor. The two unnamed characters are going to take this infiltration business one step further. Felicity Jones is said to … [Read more...] about Here’s How Rogue One Pays Tribute to Star Wars: A New Hope
We are only a month away from the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. That will dominate the galaxy far far away conversation for a while, but there is still a ton of desire for information on Star Wars 8. A title would be nice! But since we don't have that yet, we will have to settle for these new details regarding Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern's characters. Fan site Making Star Wars recently shared some details on the new cast members joining Daisy Ridley and John Boyega in Star Wars 8. These are unconfirmed details, but Making Star Wars has a very solid track record when it comes to these reports, so there is a good chance these are at least close to the mark in terms of how true they are. First up, they are describing Benicio Del Toro as a "man in black," because he dresses in all black and is considered to be dangerous, but not necessarily a bad guy. He has been compared to Lando Calrissian, but the report notes that some other details they can't yet reveal make it clear … [Read more...] about Star Wars 8 Benicio Del Toro & Laura Dern Character Details Revealed?
