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.

Alexa can give you a free movie ticket in March

A slightly convoluted set of steps appeared this week on Atom Tickets with an end-goal of a single free movie ticket to a film of the user's choice. The folks at Atom Tickets likely enabled this promotional bit of work in order to tie users' minds to the idea that ordering a movie ticket via Alexa (and Atom) would be the best (and most default) way to go through the future. In any case - it might be worth the process, depending on movie ticket prices in your area.

James Bond 007 delayed by coronavirus: “NO TIME TO DIE”

James Bond 007 delayed by coronavirus: “NO TIME TO DIE”

The title of the film is "No Time to Die", but the title was picked a long time before COVID-19 ever reared its ugly head. That's not the exact reason why the latest 007 - James Bond, that is - movie's been delayed. Instead, it's due in part to a letter from fans, asking that the studio behind James Bond act to hold off on releasing the film due to their lack of ability to get to a theater - for fear of dying, mostly.
