Leaked Star Wars set in question: Tatooine, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor?

Leaked Star Wars set in question: Tatooine, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor?

There's a bit of a fan battle going on right now in the leaked photo universe for Star Wars. Several sources captured photos of a relatively large set constructed in Little Marlow, Buckinghamshire, with a look that COULD be Tatooine in origin. It's that sort of sand, tan color, it's relatively short, and it looks like a little village. It could very easily be a "Mos Whatever" gathering of buildings - or it could be on a different planet entirely.

LEGO Super Mario Master Your Adventure Maker Set makes bricks feel new again

LEGO Super Mario Master Your Adventure Maker Set makes bricks feel new again

There've been more different sorts of LEGO sets over the past several decades than I'm sure LEGO would like to admit. Lots of great success has been had, but not every concept is a winner. The latest is LEGO Super Mario - and it's a winner. In the LEGO Super Mario Master Your Adventure set revealed this week, the winning combination of elements is made plain.

Once again, Star Wars 1313 isn’t quite quite dead yet

Once again, Star Wars 1313 isn’t quite quite dead yet

When the "final season" of Star Wars: The Clone Wars revealed Asohka Tano fall to a level of Coruscant deep below the surface, I crossed my fingers. Imagine my delight when the series delivered a key number: 1313. That's the level of the planet - the planet which is itself "one big city" made of levels upon levels of towns, communities, and everything in-between. That's the level that was to be the setting for an awesome video game that was ultimately scrapped.

What if… WandaVision introduced the MCU to the X-Men?

What if… WandaVision introduced the MCU to the X-Men?

The first two episodes (and presumably the rest) are jam packed full of clues about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you read the comics, you'll recognize some possibilities for some of the characters. If you read basically any Marvel Comic in the latter half of the year 1996, you'll remember a universe-wide series of events that could very well be mirrored here in 2021 with WandaVision and the fallout after Avengers: Endgame. But it won't.

The way we watch sports is still broken and isn’t getting any better

The way we watch sports is still broken and isn’t getting any better

Back in the late 2000s, when streaming services like Netflix and Hulu were just getting going, I was convinced that those services would change the way we watch TV. Even back then, it wasn't difficult to envision a future where cable wasn't the only way we watched shows. Fast forward to today and things have largely panned out as expected. The streaming market is fragmented as everyone attempts to build out their own streaming services, yes, but these days you can get along just fine with a few streaming subscriptions, which still comes in at less than the cost of a cable package.

Hulu will get Disney’s Nomadland movie the same day as theaters

Nomadland, a drama that will hit some IMAX theaters later this month, will be available to stream on Hulu on the same day it gets its widespread premiere in theaters throughout the US.

Millie Bobby Brown side-by-side with Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia

Millie Bobby Brown side-by-side with Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia

If the future required a recasting of the role of Princess Leia for Star Wars, the internet might've just found its actress-of-choice. Millie Bobby Brown, known for her roles as 11 in Stranger Things and Enola Holmes in the Netflix show Enola Holmes, was planted in a set of Star Wars clips via Deepfake. With the greatest of ease, MBB just replaced Carrie Fisher's face - though none of the official parties in play had anything to do with the creation of said video.

Spotify Car Thing at the FCC looks very different

Spotify Car Thing at the FCC looks very different

Every music and audio provider naturally wants to be anywhere it would be safe to listen. Cars are definitely one of those places, especially compared to watching videos or even looking at notifications. Thanks to automotive infotainment platforms like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, it's almost too easy for these services to become available to drivers and passengers. Spotify, however, might be cooking up something a tad different but its "Car Thing" might end up looking more like a weird abomination than something like a Spotify for Cars.
