Rebels Season 2 Comes To Blu-ray And DVD August 30th

Posted by Paul | June 17, 2016 at 10:43 PM ET |

Rebels Season 2 comes to Blu-ray and DVD August 30th. has the full story!

Well, the drama is back! (Supposedly.) is reporting from source Latino Review that there is indeed major drama surrounding Rogue One, that the problems aren't overblown. In fact, they accuse Entertainment Weekly of shilling for Disney. Per the source, they're claiming that things are so bad that a new director is being brought on board and half the film needs to be reshot because it is much too dark for Disney's tastes. (What a shame if this is indeed true.) We're just presenting this for you to come to your own conclusions. But if it is true, it certainly provides some clarity on how Disney is much too involved in the creative process.

The Truth Behind The Rogue One Reshoots

Posted by Paul | June 04, 2016 at 07:07 AM ET |

Sometimes it takes a "crazy" rumor to get the truth. Hey, whatever it takes. Still, Lucasfilm has mostly decide to not respond to the rumors. has the full story on the truth they were able to confirm surrouding the Rogue One reshoots and other changes required to help finish it up. Click through for more!.

Uh-oh. Unrest there always seems to be at Disney when it comes to Star Wars. First Arndt leaving, now Rogue One is suffering some supposed turmoil. According to the Daily Mail, Disney chiefs have deemed Rogue One "so bad" that they're requiring four weeks of reshoots and the blame is being placed on director Gareth Edwards. (Or maybe it's actually so good in a classic Star Wars sense that they need to completely rework it to make some characters more invincible perhaps?) Check out the story!

Maybe there is some precedent set for a Star Wars film getting released in December. Maybe The Force Awakens isn't alone. The Academy Film Archive has revealed a supposedly never-before-seen "Revenge Of The Jedi" teaser yesterday which shows that Episode VI was planned to have a December 1983 release date. Check it out!

Happy Birthday To A New Hope And Return Of The Jedi!

Posted by Paul | May 25, 2016 at 10:54 AM ET |

Happy 39th Birthday to Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (you're over the hill next year)! And also Happy 33rd Birthday to my most favorite Star Wars film of all: Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi!

Happy Birthday Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones!

Posted by Paul | May 16, 2016 at 05:10 PM ET |

Happy 14th birthday to Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones! I guess I could say something sarcastic like " you sure look a whole lot better after Episode VII" but I wouldn't say such a thing. In all seriousness, you're responsible for creating our clone obsessions. And we hope Lucasfilm Ltd. finishes off that awesome "generator sequence" one day and re-releases it as a special edition or something.

Take A Break and Watch This Star Wars/James Bond Mash-up

Posted by Chuck | May 09, 2016 at 08:38 AM ET |

Just in case you need a little Monday morning distraction, have a look at this cool video showing how Star Wars might look if it opened in the style of the James Bond movies. In this case, The Empire Strikes Back gets the Bond treatment...

Sources for Variety have confirmed that reported frontrunner Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) has been cast as Disney's new Han Solo. Yes, this is really happening. Ehrenreich will star in the Han Solo standalone film set before the events of A New Hope. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directing and the still untitled film is scheduled to be released on May 25, 2018. Lord and Miller are known for taking the worst ideas and turning them into something enjoyable, but this seems like an impossible task even for them. The idea of a young Han Solo movie has felt misguided since its inception to me. Maybe Lord, Miller, and Ehrenreich will prove me wrong, but I'm not holding my breath. What do you think? Comment and let us know! 

Speaking to animation director Rob Coleman, Lucas said of “his ultimate framing device” that: “The entire story of Star Wars is actually being recounted to the keeper of the Journal of the Whills—remember that?—a hundred years after the events of Return of the Jedi by none other than R2-D2.” (more....) Extra special thanks to JTA stalker Ayem Mayhem for alerting us to this very interesting article!

O.M.G. Did Entertainment Earth just spill the beans on Rey's last name? SPOILER WARNING! Click the image below to see what her name just might be! (As if you didn't know already!) Out of respect to others, do NOT discuss the name in the comments! But those who don't want spoilers should just stay away! Special thanks to JTA reader Barry J. for the detective work!

UPDATE: Pablo Hidalgo has "confirmed" via Twitter that Entertainment Earth's listing is NOT correct. It was fun speculating! EE has some updating to do on that case assortment listing now!

All those Constable Zuvio rumors are untrue, when you discover what JJ Abrams said about him. Find out more at!

What Standalone Star Wars Film Do You Want To See?

Posted by Mike_Taber | April 14, 2016 at 11:27 AM ET |

Now that we've had our first look at Rogue One and a front runner has apparently emerged in the search for a young Han Solo, the standalone Star Wars films are beginning to take shape. Rogue One looks promising but I'm still dreading the young Han Solo movie despite its strong creative team (Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Lawrence and Jon Kasdan). I just think a young Han Solo movie is a fundamentally misguided idea. Hopefully Lord, Miller, and the Kasdans can prove me wrong. Right now Rogue One and the young Han Solo movie are the only confirmed standalone films, but what kind of stories do you want to see? The long-rumored Boba Fett movie? A Porkins origin story? A movie explaining how Admiral Ackbar knew it was a trap? Personally, my vote is for an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie starring Ewan McGregor. Obi-Wan is one of the most popular Star Wars characters, Ewan is willing to come back, and you have the entire time period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope to tell a story. Why hasn't this happened yet? 


Has Disney Found Its New Han Solo?

Posted by Mike_Taber | April 14, 2016 at 10:57 AM ET |

Deadline is reporting that Hail, Caesar! actor Alden Ehrenreich has emerged as the front runner in Disney's search for a young Han Solo. Apparently Ehrenreich pulled ahead of other actors who were up for the role after an impressive performance in a recent screen test. The still untitled film is scheduled to be released on May 25th, 2018. Check out the full story on

Sabine Wren To Receive A More Developed Role In Rebels Season 3

Posted by Paul | April 02, 2016 at 02:09 PM ET |

Sabine Wren will have a much bigger role in Star Wars: Rebels season 3. That's what is reporting! This will be wonderful, as long as they're able to diminish her use of modern American vernacular like "Seriously?", "For reals!" and whatever other expressions make me cringe my neck. (I am partially exaggerating, so don't take the criticisms all too seriously. Seriously!) Here is to Sabine Wren getting some decent and honorable screen time!

It’s all been leading to this. A confrontation almost eight years in the making. If you watch one episode of Star Wars Rebels, watch “Twilight of the Apprentice.” Then watch it again. Click through to for the full review!

It’s a Rebels Review doubleheader! First up is “The Mystery of Chopper Base.“ Click through to for the full review!

Yahoo Movies reached out to us and asked us if we could share this exclusive video clip with our readers. Check out the behind the scenes content from The Force Awakens Blu-ray release coming April 5th.

Is Captain Rex In Return Of The Jedi?

Posted by Mike_Taber | March 31, 2016 at 08:22 AM ET |

Dave Filoni likes to think so. Speaking at the premiere screening of the Star Wars Rebels season two finale, Filoni stated his belief that Captain Rex was present during the Battle of Endor. Filoni said,"I really do think that Rex is that guy on Endor." The character that Filoni is referring to is Nik Sant, the old, bearded rebel soldier who was a part of the Endor strike team led by Han Solo in Return of the Jedi. SlashFilm has the full story. So what do you think?
