This weekend, they tackled the harbinger of modern VFX: the Star Wars prequels, which pioneered and heavily used many techniques and styles that would define visual effects work in the 21st century.

Watch Han Solo Grow from Scoundrel to Hero in This Animated Star Wars Short

Thief. Smuggler. Racer. Hero of the Alliance. Father. Martyr. Han Solo is a lot of things across his Star Wars story, and this latest entry in the Galaxy of Adventures animated series captures it all pretty dang well. Read More >>

I Think I Might Be More Excited for the New Lego Star Wars Game Than I Am for Jedi: Fallen Order

Don’t get me wrong, Respawn’s action-packed new Star Wars game looks fine. But there’s something to be said about the charm of the Lego Star Wars games that is just a lot more appealing than another story of another surviving Jedi in the Rise of the Empire (even if said Jedi just so happens to be the Joker from Gotham).

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Is Here: The Good, the Bad, and the Incredible

Everywhere you look in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, there’s something to see, something to explore, or something to do. Even though it’s not 100 per cent complete, the land itself is a star.

Dooku: Jedi Lost Makes Me Wish There Were More Prequels to The Phantom Menace

Earlier this month, The Phantom Menace turned 20 years old. The lasting legacy of what it added (for better and worse) to Star Wars’ rich tapestry is still being debated today, but the recent release of another bit of prequel storytelling has had me thinking about something: Why aren’t we getting more stories setting up the strange new world The Phantom Menace re-introduced the galaxy far, far away with?

Guy With Jar Jar Binks Back Tattoo: ‘I Have Had Sex (Multiple Times)’

Michael Ouellette has a lot of Star Wars tattoos. The 42-year-old has a full sleeve of Darth Vader on his left arm and a full sleeve of Luke Skywalker on his right. But Ouellette’s most curious tattoo is the one of Jar Jar Binks that covers his entire back. And whatever you think of his tattoo, Ouellette would like people to know something important: he says that he’s had sex. Multiple times. Read More >>

The Ultimate Legacy of Solo ls the Death of Star Wars Tradition

The Marvel Approach Won’t Work for Star Wars, According to Kathleen Kennedy

The similarities between Star Wars: The Force Awakens and A New Hope are as plentiful as they are obvious, because even though the newest trilogy introduces a whole slew of new characters, the story being told about bringing balance to the Force is the same. Respecting the original Star Wars films was always an important part of J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy’s approach to telling stories in the franchise, but with The Rise of Skywalker, the filmmakers are ready to lean into some new filmmaking sensibilities. Read More >>

The Rise of Skywalker’s New Characters, Funky Planet Names, and Teases of Rey and Kylo’s Force Bond

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker centres around closing the decades-long Skywalker saga and paving the way for a new generation of heroes. Therefore, it only makes sense that the film is bursting with new and returning characters, including Keri Russell’s Zorri Bliss and Kylo Ren’s infamous Knights of Ren. But the laser is still focused on Rey and Kylo, whose connection could define how this story finally ends. Read More >>
