The latest Forces of Destiny episode was released on Friday already – but maybe has flown somewhat under the radar due to some other Star Wars movie being released on that day. Anyway, check out “Triplecross”, it’s a fun episode featuring Qi’Ra, Hondo and IG-88. The ending is somewhat anticlimactic perhaps, but Hondo is fun as usual! Leave your thoughts in the comments!

SH Figuarts will for the first time show The Last Jedi Luke Skywalker (Crait) and a Revenge of the Sith Yoda at the Tamashii Comic-Con this weekend! So it seems SHF will beat Hasbro to the punch once more when it comes to making a TLJ version of Luke! But I am especially excited for Yoda, since the Hasbro version may have a good sculpt, but it’s too tall and the facial paint apps leave much to be desired! We will post photos once they become available!
Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who plays L3-37 in the Solo movie, was on the Graham Norton show and talked a bit about her audition for the role. It turns out that a) she had never seen a Star Wars movie before (which David Tennant who’s also a guest finds incredible) and b) didn’t even know what a droid is until she found out in the audition that a droid is some kind of “robot”. But still, she won the audition. Check out the clip! It’s really fun the way she tells it. Oh, and please don’t get too distracted by Phoebe’s dress!

Variety posted a short interview clip with Emilia Clarke on their YouTube Channel earlier tonight. And Emilia revealed a few things about how she (and probably the rest of the cast) felt when Lord & Miller were replaced by Ron Howard. According to Emilia Ron Howard took the cast from “what are we doing???” to “a place of such ease and comfort and fun”. So when Lord & Miller were still directors there was no ease, comfort and fun? And nobody knew what they were doing? Interesting! But see for yourself!

That Disney is lifting it a full 10 days before official release is a good sign! Expect reviews as early as next Tuesday!

Ever since The Last Jedi was released Rotten Tomatoes Audience Scores, Cinemascores and whatever professional critics had to say was hotly debated. There has been a distinct feeling among quite a few moviegoers that whatever the Tomatometer or Metascore says is far removed from what the fans think about a movie.
