Star Wars finally gave my favorite character a (new) backstory

Star Wars finally gave my favorite character a (new) backstory

When we first see Princess Leia in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, she's disguised as a bounty hunter. It's not particularly important to the plot of the movie that we know the origin of the outfit, but Star Wars is deep! Star Wars fans (like myself) want to know everything about every character onscreen, assuming someone's taken the time to give each character a story worth knowing. In this case, it took just over a decade before anyone accepted the task.

Star Wars just brought back human Jabba, again, sort of!

The latest canonical story action in the Star Wars universe comes courtesy of the Star Wars comic book series from Marvel Comics.

The creators of Star Wars at Industrial Light and Magic (ILM) and Lucasfilm aren't shy about the fact that they employ fans of their most popular creations.

Star Wars is now 44 years old and more than 5 days long

Today is the 44th anniversary of the premiere of the movie Star Wars. This was the movie that was eventually called Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, according to its place in the Star Wars Skywalker saga film lineup and Original Star Wars Trilogy. To be entirely fair, Star Wars was promoted before May 25, 1977, and previewed to some very lucky individuals before this date - but May 25, 1977 was the day the movie opened to the public. Since then, one whole heck of a lot of Star Wars has been produced and released to screens both big and small.
