Star Wars podracing game coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4

Star Wars podracing game coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4

The single most pervasive element to come out of Star Wars: Episode 1 "The Phantom Menace" was podracing. The race was a movie unto itself, a sporting element inside a major motion picture about an innocent young kid from Tatooine that'd one day become a murderer of thousands... but for now, a great pilot! The game is called Star Wars Episode I: Racer, and it's back in action in May of 2020.

Alternate Star Wars IX script animated in video

Colin Trevorrow wrote a script for Star Wars 9, aka Star Wars IX, that never happened. This movie script was abandoned and a new script was written, that script became Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The abandoned, rumored, mythical script was meant to be used by Trevorrow to direct a film that would have been called Star Wars Duel of the Fates. This was lovingly interpreted, translated, and compacted into a 10-minute animated clip for your consumption.

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

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!

The Mandalorian’s new trailer gives bounty hunters their due

The Mandalorian’s new trailer gives bounty hunters their due

Bounty hunters have never had it easy in the Star Wars universe. While not really taking sides in the grand battle of light and darkness, the only two named bounty hunters met gruesome ends in the films. As this new trailer for Disney's first live-action show says, it's a difficult profession. And since everyone loves a good underdog story, that's exactly what The Mandalorian is expected to deliver, with loads of gunfights, space fights, and new creatures to boot.
