First Stand Alone Star Wars Movie Named

Thursday morning, Disney CEO Bob Iger walked up on stage during a press conference, and actually announced a few things. Unsurprisingly, he talked about The Force Unleashed just enough to say that he can’t talk about anything. Then he announced a rather minor but already frequented rumor that Rian Johnson, a director behind Looper and like, three Breaking Bad episodes, would get the distinct honor of writing and directing Star Wars Episode VIII. The only interesting part about this announcement is that they are planning on releasing the next iteration in May of 2017, and maybe the confirmation that J.J. … Read more…

Star Wars: The Names Awakened

Remember all those new characters from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer whose identities we could only speculate on? Well now we at least have their names, curtesy of J.J. Abrams delivering some awesome retro-looking Topps cards to Entertainment Weekly over the weekend. First of all, that’s one of the coolest ways to leak out some new Star Wars details. Second of all, well now we have names. So now what? These names don’t really tell us much on the surface, really. Letting these names slip isn’t some disastrous spoiler or anything.

Star Wars: A Teaser Awakens Part II

“The Millenium Falcon Looks Awesome Need I say more?” Heck yeah, I do. I mean, come on, this is the trailer to the movie that succeeds Return of the friggin Jedi. In my opinion, this is the most significant thing to happen to Star Wars since 1983, when Return of the Jedi came out. There’s no way I’m going to stop talking about it. Heck, my wife’s already tired of it. I might as well make you tired of it too. My last article about this matter was written mere hours after I saw the trailer. I’ve now had 72 … Read more…

Star Wars: A Teaser Awakens

Hey! I’m back! I wrote a bunch of words. 50,223 of them to be exact. Yes some of them repeated, and they repeated a lot more often than I really wanted, but that’s okay I’m a two-time NaNoWriMo winner. While I was in my self-imposed blogging isolation, a lot of things happened, but it probably would have been a terrible time for me to be blogging anyway. The Windows 10 Preview nearly self-destructed with buggy preview updates. And then got fixed just in time for me to come back. A new book about the most infamous guy to ever blow … Read more…

Star Wars Rebels

This is a wonderful time to be a Star Wars fan. Why? Because Disney owns Star Wars, and they’re going to make damn sure that they inundate us with as much Star Wars content as they can. For those who look at that last statement and immediately feel either ill or afraid, calm thyself. Disney is not what it used to be, it is much better. If you need any proof of this sort, just realize that Disney is currently responsible for most Marvel franchises. So let me list the amount of film awesomeness that has been created under the … Read more…
