Beat Saber is the new hype VR game

Beat Saber is the new hype VR game

This week the folks at Hyperbolic Magnetism are probably pretty pumped up about all the press they're getting for Beat Saber. They first started development for this game back in 2016, and between then and now it's been tested by hundreds of users. In its first couple weeks on the Steam VR store and Oculus Store, Beat Saber's become a sort of shock hit.

Lando movie rumor not true (from a certain point of view)

Lando movie rumor not true (from a certain point of view)

Rumor started this morning of a Lando Calrissian movie as foretold by Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy. It was misquoted, as noted and re-noted by the source for the material. But the hype is real, and the reaction to the possibility of such a film is no surprise to us, no surprise at all.

Hero Arm: Luke Skywalker’s bionic limb made real

Hero Arm: Luke Skywalker’s bionic limb made real

Powered prosthetics are becoming so well designed, they're surpassing their sci-fi film predecessors. Look to Open Bionics, a group that's working on a project called Hero Arm. They've created a 3D-printed bionic arm that works with muscle control, custom covers, and full customizability. This is one of those times where it's abundantly apparent that we're living in a technologic wonderland.

Favreau helms Star Wars TV show: Because Obvious Default is Obvious

Favreau helms Star Wars TV show: Because Obvious Default is Obvious

It's as if Disney calls Jon Favreau first, and if he's not available, they move on to someone else. Today Disney announced that they'd signed on Jon Favreau to executive produce and write a Star Wars TV show that'll come first to Disney's streaming content app (still not yet released.) This is the 12-billionth time Favreau will have worked with Disney in a leading role.

Star Wars Episode 9 hit with delay after director shake up

Star Wars Episode 9 hit with delay after director shake up

Disney has announced that Star Wars Episode 9 will be arriving later than expected. When the company announced yesterday that JJ Abrams was being brought on to direct and write Episode 9, we probably should have assumed this would happen, as is sounds like Abrams' arrival is acting as something of a hard reset for production. In any case, we're all going to have to wait quite a bit longer for Episode 9 to release.

Star Wars TLJ Find the Force leaks all sorts of secrets

Star Wars TLJ Find the Force leaks all sorts of secrets

This morning a BUNCH of Star Wars: The Last Jedi info was data mined from the Star Wars "Find the Force" campaign meant for Force Friday. Included were a set of character tokens, all of the character hologram avatars, all of the scannable store posters, and a bunch more. Needless to say, what follows is certainly worthy of being called a SPOILER for The Last Jedi.

Star Wars Find the Force event is an augmented reality treasure hunt

Lucasfilm and Disney have announced their second 'Force Friday' event, which they're simply calling 'Force Friday II.' The first Force Friday was held in 2015, and this upcoming one will be held on September 1, the companies say. Ushering it in will be an event Disney is calling 'Find the Force,' which is described as being an augmented reality-based treasure hunt that spans the globe. It's not quite what you're imaging, though.

Netflix to Disney: wait, let’s talk about Marvel and Star Wars

Netflix to Disney: wait, let’s talk about Marvel and Star Wars

While Disney-made Disney content seems to be 100% off the table, Netflix still wants to negotiate over Marvel and Star Wars content. Disney, after all, owns the whole lot. Netflix stands to gain or lose a whole lot of viewers based on news bits like "Disney will ditch Netflix in 2019". Amid talks of the future of Disney's stream-friendly content, the CEO of the company agreed that Marvel and Star Wars (Lucasfilm) content might well be next to leave Netflix.

Disney Netflix pull first, Star Wars and Marvel next

Disney Netflix pull first, Star Wars and Marvel next

After an announcement of a Disney content pull from Netflix, the company further expressed the possibility of doing so with Lucasfilm and Marvel content. Not that they'd necessarily pull the content that's been licensed under Netflix brand specifically, but that they're considering more separate streaming services. If they do decide to split these other brands, we'd have one whole heck of a lot of streaming brands to choose from - or perhaps we'll see it the other way - that we've got too many services to pay for.

This is Donald Glover as Lando (and Chewie’s wife?!)

This is Donald Glover as Lando (and Chewie’s wife?!)

Today we've gotten a couple looks at what Donald Glover is going to look like in the upcoming Han Solo Star Wars film. While it should be relatively obvious that his appearance won't change drastically - Lando's just a man, after all - we do get to see some sweet costume images. Very, very small images that I feel border on cruelty - thanks Ron Howard! Now, to start making that super-duper-early cosplay jacket in yellow...

Star Wars Han Solo movie taps director Ron Howard to replace Lord/Miller duo

Star Wars Han Solo movie taps director Ron Howard to replace Lord/Miller duo

Lucasfilm recently issued a brief statement revealing that the unnamed Han Solo movie slated for 2018 had lost its two directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The reason for the departure was cited as 'creative differences,' though reports have since claimed that the duo were fired over repeatedly clashing with others on the project including producer Kathleen Kennedy. Considering the movie's rapidly approaching premiere, Lucasfilm had to move fast to find a replacement, and now we know who it selected.
