Comic Review: Annual - Poe Dameron (2017) - Issue 1

There are apparently a lot of Poe Dameron fans out there and LucasFilm and Marvel felt there was enough there to warrant his own comic series. The series may have a lot of readers, but it isn’t one of my favorites and this one-off Annual didn’t make it much better. That being said, this issue did add a bit of depth to the character we see on screen in The Force Awakens. Check out what I thought about this Annual issue and be sure to check out the other comic Research Droids Reviews. While you’re there, be sure to share your thoughts in the comments. If there is a series you think I should review, be sure to drop me a line and let me know!

Ron Howard To Direct The Han Solo Film

Following the shocking news that directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller had been fired over four and a half months into production, rumors began to swirl that Oscar winner Ron Howard was the top choice to take over the directing duties on the Han Solo film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ron Howard has officially been named as the new director of the Han Solo film. Howard will take over a contentious set, Lord and Miller were fired after clashing with Kathleen Kennedy and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan. It’s extremely rare for a director to be fired this far into production, so a veteran director like Howard is a smart choice to finish the film under these bizarre circumstances. Head over to The Hollywood Reporter for the full story.

In case you haven’t heard, The Black Series [Star Wars 40] wave 1 is getting cancelled on collectors left and right. Hasbro has officially put this wave out of production. What we don’t know for sure is the effect on the solid case packs as our sponsors still show them available for pre-order. It looks like if you want Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker, getting singles might be your only bet going forward. Remember, Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store still has these available. (It’s unbelievable has disorganized this collection has been.)

Talk About A Sweet Deal!

It may not be what you expected, but hey it could be a great gift for that Star Wars fan in your life. Heck, my Mother was so excited about it that she e-mailed me it! Plus, 75% off of some Darth Vader chocolate is always a good thing and that awesome Darth Maul&M dispenser is pretty sweet (get it?). Am I right?

It seems that Hasbro is in a position with The Black Series 6″ line that they will be playing forever “catch up” with it. There was already such a vast cast of characters “out there” before the line even began in 2013 that trying to represent even a diverse range of everything is proving overwhelming for them. (more….)

Mark Hamill generated a lot of conversation after he stated that he fundamentally disagreed with The Last Jedi director Rian Johsnon about direction of Luke’s story. Variety caught up Hamill at the Tony Awards and he clarified his recent comments. Hamill said, “I got in trouble, because I was quoted as saying to Rian that I fundamentally disagree with everything you decided about Luke, and it was inartfully phrased. What I was, was surprised at how he saw Luke. And it took me a while to get around to his way of thinking, but once I was there it was a thrilling experience.” Check out the full video!

The shirts reveal what may very well be the working title and logo for the film, Star Wars: Solo with Han’s signature blaster standing in for the “L.” What do you think about the potential title and logo? What about the film as a whole? Despite the talented directors and cast, I’m still concerned. Head over to MakingStarWars.net to check out the full gallery!
