Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker novel edits Rey’s parents, yet again

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker novel edits Rey’s parents, yet again

It would appear that Star Wars lore just cannot stay solid as, just this week, Rey's parentage changed yet again. As events and details in the novelization of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker showed, the official word on the origin of Rey's parents is not exactly what you might've assumed, given the details present in the film. Further, it would seem that the actor who played Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) shed some light on an earlier version of the films' script, after the impenetrable wall of Lucasfilm NDA fell at the film's premiere. This is where I say SPOILER ALERT if you'd like to remain unspoiled.

Porsche Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus is a Star Wars ship you won’t see in the film

The Star Wars franchise is home to a number of vehicles, most of which will probably never become reality. But with cars becoming smarter and gaining wings, some manufacturers might want to give that idea a spin, even if only on a conceptual level. That is exactly what Porsche did with Lucasfilm's blessing, designing a new Tri-Wing S-91x Pegasus that you will sadly not see in any official film or media.

Why Baby Yoda plush toys aren’t ready for Christmas 2019

Why Baby Yoda plush toys aren’t ready for Christmas 2019

You cannot buy an officially-licensed Baby Yoda plush toy in time for Christmas 2019. That's by design... sort of. As Lucasfilm product licensing SVP Paul Southern said today, "It was important to us that the reveal of the new character, the Child, be a special moment for fans, and we could not be more thrilled with the response." Lucasfilm and Disney felt it was so extremely important to keep Baby Yoda a secret that they did not include imagery or descriptions of the character in the first wave of license-ready media for manufacturers. As far as they knew - no such character would even exist!
