"I at one point had to say to Rian, ‘I pretty much fundamentally disagree with every choice you’ve made for this character. Now, having said that, I have gotten it off my chest, and my job now is to take what you’ve created and do my best to realize your vision." That's a direct quote from Mark Hamill. He then of course goes on to say how much he respects Rian Johnson after that.... blah, blah, blah. Check out the full article at Vanity Fair HERE.

StarWars.com has put together an interesting article claiming there are seven (7) thing you probably don't know about the Star Wars "Style A" original movie poster. It's a worthy read.
Happy 40th anniversary of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope! It all started here. Disney attempted to sweep its originality under the carpet with a paltry remake that most people don't even talk about anymore, but the fact remains that those who grew up with the original will always remember its purity, perfection and wonderment. Thanks you George Lucas for making one of the greatest films of our lifetime and showing us that you and/or your involvement are the only ways this story can be told.
Happy 34th anniversary of Star Wars Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi! It has the greatest cast of aliens than any other Star Wars film. It's also been the cop-out movie to dislike because Ewoks took on the Empire on Endor. For us that makes it the best. That's also the planet where Darth Vader's melted helmet should have stayed.

TIME ranks the 40 greatest Star Wars moments. Will you agree?
Happy 37th anniversary of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back! Disney is suffering from delusions of grandeur if they believe that they will ever come remotely close to making a Star Wars film of this magnitude.

JTA reader Richard F. just saw a television commercial for Good Morning America moments ago where they said that they would be sharing a The Last Jedi trailer announcement. We're not entirely sure what that means, but GMA did state that it is an announcement forty years in the making. You may want to set your DVRs.
UPDATE: The original TV commercial has made its way to YouTube already! It's not really trailer related. See it for yourself!

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.

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.
