JTA reader Vincent M. alerts us to the French reveal of The Last Jedi movie title and it confirms that Jedi is indeed plural in this instance. Whether this is a misprint (possible but unlikely) or not remains to be seen, but at least it is plausible to believe that it refers to more than one Jedi now.The Independent has more infomation on this. This additional development can be found HERE,
UPDATE: The title of this film has been released in MANY languages today and all have Jedi as plural.

Movie Web is reporting that Star Wars: Underworld, a live-action television show that takes place between Episode III and Episode IV (and conceived by George Lucas) might very well come to pass finally (sometime in 2018). Check out the article.
The Force Awakens takes home a Grammy for best score. ComicBook.com has the story.

Bad news, everyone. Star Wars: The Clone Wars is set to leave Netflix on March 7th. It is currently listed as "Available Until 03/07/2017" on Netflix. Interestingly, the Clone Wars theatrical release is not set to expire and season six of The Clone Wars was originally a Netflix exclusive. Netflix occasionally posts the expiration date even though a new contract is already in place, but I wouldn't count on that being the case. JTA has been reviewing past seasons of The Clone Wars in chronological order and you can find all of those reviews right here.
Variety is reporting that Pheobe Waller-Bridge, star of the critically acclaimed Amazon series Fleabag, is up for a key role in the Han Solo. Talks are reportedly still ongoing. Waller-Bridge's role would be CGI based and her character would fill a role similar to K2-SO or Chewbacca. Which is interesting because Chewbacca himself will have a major role in the film. If she gets the part, Waller-Bridge would join Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Woody Harrelson, and Emilia Clarke. Director Chris Miller announced on January 30th that filming has begun.

According to Variety, Woody Harrelson is in early talks to join the upcoming Han Solo standalone film as Han's mentor. Apparently Harrelson is the top choice for the role and the executives at Lucasfilm want a recognizable actor to play Han's mentor. Although I'm not very excited about the Han Solo film, Harrelson is certainly an intriguing addition to the cast. Let us know what you think about the addition of Han's mentor and Harrelson's potential involvement in the comments section.

Prior to their tragic passing, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds completed a documentary that chronicled their unique relationship and life together. Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds will premiere January 7th at 8:00pm on HBO. If the early reviews are any indication, Bright Lights is a fascinating and touching look at the relationship between mother and daughter. During this difficult time, please keep Billie Lourd, Todd Fisher, and the rest of their family in your thoughts. I can't even begin to imagine what they are going through right now. Click here for the full story.

It's New Year's Eve, so I thought it would be fun for those of you who are home like me to rank the current Star Wars films. I got this idea from a friend on Facebook. So, on a scale of 1-10 (with 1 being the worst and 10 being absolutely perfect), rate all of the Star Wars movies by how well you liked them. Please keep additional comments as light as possible. For example:
Episode 1: Phantom Menace (1999) - 6
Episode 2: Attack of the Clones (2002) - 3
Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith (2005) - 7
Episode 4: A New Hope (1977) - 9
Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) - 7
Episode 6: Return of the Jedi (1983) - 10
Episode 7: The Force Awakens (2015) - 0
Rogue One (2016) - 8

This is a "friendly" reminder to refrain from posting any insider knowledge, rumored plot points or any character development details surrounding Rogue One: A Star Wars Story until Saturday morning. If you waste your own time at various movie rumor sites that's your business, but don't ruin it for anyone else here including the staff at JTA. We know NOTHING about the film and want it that way. Last year someone posted "Han Solo dies!" the night before I was going to see the "Episode VII" film. I have yet to track down that youngling and cut him in two with my lightsaber. Ultimately, in the case of TFA it ended up not mattering at all since the film was so terrible. But we all have high hopes for this one. So, fair warning, if you post rumors, spoilers, plot points or anything other than what we have seen in the trailers, we can't guarantee what will become of your access here. Please help keep this film a surprise for those that want it a surprise. This is a major event, not an unboxing of Pops! Thank you in advance for abiding.
UPDATE: the only exception to this will be a special discussion thread open on Thursday evening (much how we did last year with The Force Awakens) which will be your sole place here at JTA to fully discuss the movie That is until our full review goes live.

Rogue One is almost here! Not that you need another reason to be excited, but check out this behind the scenes look at the creatures of Rogue One. A lot of the new creatures and aliens in this video already feel like they belong in the Star Wars galaxy. That's something I wouldn't say about the majority of the creatures we saw in Maz Kanata's castle. I love the design of these new characters, but I hope we see some more familiar aliens as well. The new Mon Calamari look great and hopefully they aren't the only familiar face we see. Let's have some Rodians and Twi'leks walking around the streets of Jedha too. What do you think? What is your favorite Rogue One design so far? Let us know in the comment section!

Ah! We missed an anniversary in the Star Wars universe. Yesterday was the 38th anniversary of The Star Wars Holiday Special which premiered on November 17, 1978. It was pretty bad, but it was also like a train wreck where you couldn't look away from it. Also, it introduced us all to the coolest bounty hunter of all time: Boba Fett. Thanks to all who were involved in making this pretty stinky cheese! We adore it.
