Over the weekend Jon Favreau posted a picture of the rifle the Mandalorian will use in the show on Instagram. And it seems it’s a clear reference to the rifle Boba Fett used in The Holiday Special cartoon segment. And who knows, maybe it even is Boba Fett’s rifle, unless this design is more generic. The action figure that comes with that gun can’t be revealed soon enough!
Star Wars Resistance has arrived! The series premiere just wrapped up and we want to hear from you. What are your thoughts on the latest animated expansion of the Star Wars saga? Let us know! Keep an eye out for a review of the series premiere of Star Wars Resistance later this week.
The official Star Wars site published a very first look at the main character of the upcoming show “The Mandalorian” by Jon Favreau, which will have its premiere sometime in 2019. Dave Filoni will direct the first episode, while other episodes will be directed by Bryce Dallas Howard (you know her from Jurassic World), Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) and Taika Waititi (Thor 3). The show will be written by Jon Favreau.
What do you think about the look of the character? In my opinion it’s classic Mandalorian armor but different enough from Boba Fett’s version. Pedro Pascal is rumored to be the main character of the show. And one thing is clear: we need an action figure of “The Mandalorian” in all possible scales and lines!
We finally have some information on the upcoming Jon Favreau live-action Star Wars series: The Mandalorian. The director revealed the synopsis via his Instagram account:

Variety has an interesting exclusive article about Disney’s plans to make MCU shows for their upcoming streaming service.

What could that mean for Star Wars? Click through for some speculation!

Ever since Billy Dee Williams was announced as a cast member for Episode IX fans were concerned in what shape Williams would be for the movie, considering his health and age. Well, it seems Billy Dee is in great shape, he has a personal trainer who works with him and Billy Dee Williams posted a short video on his Twitter feed earlier today where you can see him working out and boxing. So whatever Lando will do in Episode IX, he won’t just have to sit or lean against a wall. Maybe he can punch some sense into Kylo Ren? Go to Twitter to see the short clip!
The official Star Wars YouTube channel released a behind the scenes look for Star Wars Resistance earlier today. In this 3-minute clip you get to meet some of the voice actors, a little is told about each character and you learn more about the general setting. For example, “Team Fireball”, as it is called, has to earn money by racing swoop/speeder bikes. The female character Tam is “tough, no nonsense and kind of has an attitude” according to her voice actress (which sounds like any other female character in movies and shows these days) and main character Kaz is actually bad at spying but has heart (the Star Wars version of Johnny English?). Check it out, the video is full of tiny tidbits and short clips from the upcoming show that will give you a better impression than the short trailer from a while ago. The clip also confirms that the show is made for kids, as one producer says that the show is intended for younger audiences, not for us grown-ups.
Former Doctor Who star Matt Smith has joined the cast of Episode IX. Nothing is known about his role yet, but Matt Smith is joining an ever expanding cast list. Dominic Monaghan (Lost, Lord of the Rings) was also announced as yet another cast member. It seems Episode IX might have a quite expansive cast list, of course both Smith and Monaghan could only be seen in smaller roles. We’ll learn more about that eventually.
What are your thoughts? Are you excited for Matt Smith and Dominic Monbaghan to join the Star Wars franchise? Smith, after his time with Doctor Who, also starred in the ill fated Terminator Genisys with Emilia Clarke, so he’s not new to Hollywood SciFi blockbusters.
Some photos from the filming of Episode IX have appeared on the web. You can get a good look at Poe Dameron, Finn and Chewbacca as well as some extras (?).

Star Wars: The Clone Wars was released in theaters ten years ago today. To celebrate the film’s milestone anniversary, we are reposting our review of the film which was originally written in 2016. Click the banner below to read the review and don’t forget to share your thoughts in our comments section. After a decade, what does the film mean to you? Stayed tuned for more thoughts on the tenth anniversary of Star Wars: The Clone Wars!
Director J.J. Abrams posted a very first photo from the set of Episode IX earlier today on Twitter. It doesn’t reveal or show much really, but still, it’s evidence that filming has begun. Now J.J. has the momumental task ahead of him to deliver the grand finale to the Skywalker saga. What you see in the photo is the camera rig and if you squint very hard it may very well be that John Boyega and some other person (Daisy Ridley?) are in the cockpit of what could be the Millennium Falcon. It also seems Finn finally got rid rid of his leather jacket, I wonder what Poe thinks about that!
One rumor that appears to be picking up steam is that George Lucas will be consulting on the Episode IX script. If this is true, it provides additional support to the foundation that there are significant problems internally with Star Wars fandom because of the direction Episode VIII took (founded or unfounded). It will be fascinating to see how this transpires. I hope that, if involved, he helps to steer Star Wars back to a direction that will no longer split the community or alienate fans. There is too much strife at the moment, and something needs a revisiting. Hopefully, this is it. Movie Web has the full story.
Filming officially begins August 1st for Episode IX, and casting details have been revealed. It looks like we will be getting Carrie Fisher after all, along with Mark Hamill and Billy Dee Williams. Get the full details over at StarWars.com!
Greg Grunberg more or less confirmed in an interview with Yahoo that he’s back for Episode IX. His character Snap Wexley was absent in The Last Jedi, but as it seems there can’t be a JJ Abrams movie without his buddy Greg. Also: after The Last Jedi the Resistance can use any help it can get. You can watch the very short (less than 30 seconds) interview snippet with Greg on Yahoo.
