Presumably, there’s a whole galaxy that is chock full of eclectic music in the Star Wars universe. However, fans have only heard a very limited amount of it in the Star Wars movies. There’s Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes (aka the Cantina Band) from Star Wars: A New Hope, Sy Snootles and the Max […]

Over the last few days, Star Wars fans have been treated to new photos and magazine covers featuring the characters from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and LucasFilm also announced a global promotional campaign in anticipation for this spin-off. Earlier today, director Gareth Edwards even offered new details about the title itself, but now we have even more merchandise to unveil, including new 3D glasses to choose from when this movie hits theaters on December 16.
TheForce.net unveiled the first images of new Stormtrooper and Death Trooper 3D glasses, which were created by Look 3D. These glasses will be priced in the $10 to $15 range, but it isn't known when they will be available for purchase. Fans will also get to learn more about a few of these Rebel characters in a trio of new books, slated to debut in 2017 from Edelweiss.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, more simply referred to as Rogue One, might be a confusing title for some people. Good thing director Gareth Edwards is here to explain. Donna Dickens and I were discussing the title of this Star Wars film not too long ago. Since most people don't say the full title when discussing it, we thought it might be a roadblock of sorts for the film's marketing. Speaking to Empire for the magazine's new cover story, Edwards was asked about the exact meaning of the title. He doesn't have a specific answer but rather several ideas he'd been thinking about. "'Rogue One’ is a military call sign to some extent,” he told them, "but this is the first film that's gone off-piste and is not part of the saga – or the Anakin story – so it’s the 'rogue' one, you know?” “It's kind of describing [Jyn Erso] as well in a similar way, »

Way back in February 2013, just a few months after Disney announced they had purchased LucasFilm for a whopping $4 billion, Disney's Bob Iger confirmed that there will be stand alone movies set within the Star Wars universe. That report essentially confirmed rumors that Han Solo and Boba Fett movies are in the works at LucasFilm, but the first of these stand alone adventures is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, set between A New Hope and Revenge of the Sith, following a team of Rebel soldiers trying to steal the plans for the first Death Star. When the title was first announced, most assumed it just tied into the Rebels' X-wing fighters, but today we have word from director Gareth Edwards that there is another meaning as well.
While Rogue One is most certainly set in the Star Wars universe, this will represent the first film that will stand alone from the established timeline, »
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and a droid known as K-2So (Alan Tudyk) are featured in a new photo from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Jones says the movie is "very much a boots-on-the-ground perspective of the Star Wars universe." It opens wide on December 16.

From numerous soundtrack reissues and questionable spin-offs like Christmas In The Stars to miscellaneous releases like 1977’s gold-selling The Story Of Star Wars, the Star Wars franchise is no stranger to record store shelves. But that wasn’t enough for digital artist Steven Lear. At his incredible, eye-deceiving site, Why The Longplay Face?, Lear mashes up classic album covers with classic movies with great wit. Jack Nicholson from The Shining, for instance, might find himself adorning a Human League record, while the hit men of Pulp Fiction might don turtlenecks and pose as Simon & Garfunkel. If Lear has a specialty, it’s creating alternate universe albums with characters from Star Wars. This is what music history would have been like if the various Wookiees and droids from the George Lucas-created space saga had ventured beyond the perimeter of the soundtrack bin and infiltrated every other genre of popular »

While the recent Ben-Hur remake isn’t doing so well, the 1959 version of the tale remains a classic that has inspired filmmakers, satirists, and storytellers for generations. That film, directed by William Wyler and starring Charlton Heston in the titular role, has one of the most iconic film sequences ever in its chariot race scene in which multiple people are thrown from chariots and dragged by horses, with all manner of excitement ensuing. It’s a thrilling sequence in a film that is full of some of the most indelible images in cinematic history. But is it possible that it also influenced a certain Tatooine pod race?

A new video produced by Fandor Keyframe and edited by Jacob T. Swinney shows the uncanny similarities between the 1959 chariot race and the pod race from 1999’s Star Wars: Episode ...

A big production topic of the past few years has been drones, drones and more drones. And when it comes to hyper realistic aerial chases, no one does it better than Corridor Digital. Known for their insane VFX tricks on YouTube, creators and filmmakers Niko Pueringer and Sam Gorski will do just about anything to get that perfect shot, even 3D printing and hand painting racing drones to look like Star Wars ships and racing them in the air above a national forest. It is quite the joyride. Shot in the style of a classic Star Wars space battle, the YouTube hit “Drone Star Wars” is Corridor Digital’s spin on an aerial battle between the Empire and the Rebels. Sam and Niko’s take on the...

Mark Hamill is doing his part to help a terminally ill fan see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story before it's released in theaters. A hospice worker named Amy Duncan launched a social media campaign last week asking for the upcoming Star Wars spinoff to be screened for illustrator Neil Hanvey from Oldham, England, who was recently told he has only six to eight months to live. With Rogue One set for release on Dec. 16, those close to Hanvey fear the 36-year-old may not have a chance to see the film before his condition deteriorates. After the hashtag #RogueOneWish started trending, »

If you're going to call a group of heroes the Guardians of the Galaxy, you'd do well to give them something pretty serious to guard against. Enter this giant, tentacled monster that looks like the Sarlacc pit from Star Wars hooked up with the Kraken from the Clash of the Titans remake. James Gunn shared the concept art on his Twitter account, where he later clarified that this big bad is called an Abilisk. A quick search for Abilisk in reference to Marvel comics doesn't...

When Rogue One: A Star Wars Story makes a beeline for theaters in December, it’ll mark the first of Disney’s planned Anthology films – standalone stories that will be positioned adjacent to the core, episodic series.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are currently fleshing out their own Anthology flick, one that’ll chart the origins of everyone’s favorite galactic smuggler Han Solo, while there’s also chatter of a potential Star Wars spinoff focusing on Yoda. Big plans, then, and Rogue One director Gareth Edwards is well aware of the task at hand.

If you're going to call a group of heroes the Guardians of the Galaxy, you'd do well to give them something pretty serious to guard against. Enter this giant, tentacled monster that looks like the Sarlacc pit from Star Wars hooked up with the Kraken from the Clash of the Titans remake. James Gunn shared the concept art on his Twitter account, where he later clarified that this big bad is called an Abilisk. A quick search for Abilisk in reference to Marvel comics doesn't reveal much, so this may be a creation of Gunn's for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Either way, it looks incredible and we can't wait to see how the team - particularly Baby Groot - take it down. Oh, and if you're worried about them hanging out in space without helmets on (which...

Of course, as exciting as each new Star Wars movie is, we all know half the fun lies in the different kinds of non-human characters we'll get to see. As was revealed in weeks past, the big droid character to join the canon will be none other than K-2So, voice and performance captured by actor Alan Tudyk.
Speaking with StarWars.com, Tudyk discussed further details surrounding the droid's (who he calls Kaytoo) past, and his relationship with those around him. The character's specific origins aren't necessarily new -- they were revealed via an EW first look some week's back, but he also plants the details in the context of the Star Wars historical canon. He also talks about the droid's personality in greater detail.
"Kaytoo was formerly an Imperial droid, so he used to be on the other side. He was a security droid and then Cassian, Diego Luna’s character, »

Alan Tudyk was a welcome addition to the Star Wars universe. Most of us know the very talented and very likable actor from Firefly, Wreck-it Ralph, A Knight’s Tale, Death at a Funeral, and other fine titles, but with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we’ll soon see him in (probably) his biggest movie to date. We’ve already learned a little bit about […]

Gabby Douglas in Rio It's hard to believe that at just 20 years old, Gabby Douglas can be considered a seasoned veteran, but the gymnast, who competed in her second Olympic games in Rio, is just that. We spoke with the athlete, who is still in Brazil, on Friday by phone. She reflected on some of the negativity she faced at the Games, the outpouring of support that followed with the #Love4GabbyUSA hashtag, and her Olympic future. Popsugar: How do you feel about the 2020 Olympics at this stage of the game? Gabby Douglas: Right now, I'm definitely going to take some time off and enjoy this experience. I have to practice with the team in New York, and then I have the Kellogg's tour coming up. Just a lot of family time and play with my animals. I have two dogs, Zoe and Chandler, and a cat, Toby.

George Lucas has been known to take inspiration for his movies from classic films, TV shows, comics and more. The original Star Wars in 1977 took cues from sci-fi serials like Flash Gordon and masterpieces such as Metropolis. Other influences include the films of Akira Kurosawa and much more, and this is a practice that […]

Next year is going to be jam packed with plenty of things for Marvel fans to enjoy. Not only are we getting to see Thor and Hulk team up in Thor: Ragnarok, as well as Spider-Man: Homecoming, but we are also getting the highly-anticipated follow up to James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. We are all still waiting for Marvel Studios to release the trailer that was shown at San Diego Comic-Con, but in the meantime, we can enjoy a brand new piece of concept art from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
The art was revealed by Empire and features the Guardians doing battle. In short, it is way awesome. The centerpiece of the new image is a brand new, as-of-yet unnamed space monster, which has a lot of random tentacles, pinkish-red hair, many rows of very sharp teeth, and it is big. Very, very big. Attacking from the right side is Star-Lord, »
