The Last Jedi trailer date was just outed by Luke Skywalker

Now that the end of September is upon us, we're a mere three months out from the premiere of Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi. Make no mistake, Disney is priming its massive marketing machine as we speak, and many Star Wars fans are wondering when we're going to get an actual trailer for The Last Jedi.

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.

Though inconvenient for Netflix subscribers who happen to like Disney movies, the move wasn't all that shocking. One thing left up in the air, however, was the fate of Marvel and Star Wars movies.

Sphero R2-D2 Review : Also the Best Star Wars Toy ever made

Sphero R2-D2 Review : Also the Best Star Wars Toy ever made

When I reviewed BB-8 by Sphero, I didn't expect the company would go back and create an R2-D2, too. They built their name on the original remotely controlled sphere - Sphero - and they'd not yet expanded to the world of Cars and Spider-Men. Since then they've become a much more diversified group of smart-device creators, and it's become time to roll out with the most beloved Star Wars robot in the history of the world: R2-D2 (also now by Sphero).

Toshiba’s Star Wars TV is… interesting

Toshiba’s Star Wars TV is… interesting

Toshiba made a Star Wars television that's 24-inches diagonally and designed with a Star Wars pattern. They've gone above-and-beyond when it comes to hyping this less-than-fantastic design, suggesting that "this model draws viewers into the space odyssey action, submerging them into an X-wing mission every time their eyes meet the TV." Toshiba would certainly have been better served in making the exterior aesthetic of this television set more subtle, focusing instead on the other tiny details that aren't quite so eye-searing.
