Just who are Snoke and Luke talking to in the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi? This footage has been getting picked part ever since it was released a few weeks ago and fans keep trying to poke holes in the misleading edits. Taiwanese subtitles from the latest trailer are the latest piece to get put under the microscope and they point towards some interesting possibilities that many have hypothesized since the release of The Last Jedi trailer. In the trailer, it appears that Snoke is talking to Kylo Ren in the voiceover that plays at the beginning of the trailer, but the some clever Redditors may have found a definitive answer.
According to Redditor Sleeping-Aran, the Taiwanese subtitles could be indicating that Snoke's "when I found you" voiceover isn't directed towards Kylo Ren. It's all in the "you," which is gender specific in Taiwanese. In this case, »
Following the massive success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which are the highest-grossing movies of the past two years, it's practically a sure thing that Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be a massive box office hit. Still, many are wondering if this sequel will have what it takes to break the opening weekend record of $247.9 million, set by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but the first box office projections reveal that it will likely fall well short of that mark. With just under two months away before The Last Jedi hits theaters, these projections could surely change, but as of now, box office analysts don't think it can break The Force Awakens' box office record.
These first box office projections indicate that The Last Jedi will take in approximately $215 million in its opening weekend, and $742 million throughout its domestic box office run. »
With Star Wars: The Last Jedi only two months away now, we’re starting to get a trickle of leaks giving us a peek into some details of the upcoming film. Potentially one of the juiciest rumors comes from reports of an advance copy of canon novel Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi: The Legends of Luke Skywalker, written by award-winning science fiction author Ken Liu.
The book is intended for junior readers and like we mentioned above, is considered canon, containing in-universe myths about legendary Jedi Luke Skywalker. Word is that it revolves around a group of children en route to The Last Jedi‘s casino planet of Canto Bight. To pass the time, they swap tall tales and rumors about Luke, who’s mysteriously disappeared.
One of these apparently concerns the character’s relationship with the Force post-Return of the Jedi. In an effort to »

Right now, it looks like Star Wars: The Last Jedi is going to be a brilliant addition to the greatest movie franchise of all-time. Obviously, I’m withholding judgement until I’ve seen the final product, but if the film is even half as good as its trailers make it look, it’ll still be amazing. Naturally, much of this is down to writer/director Rian Johnson, who from all accounts has poured his heart and soul into the project. I’ve been a fan of Johnson since way back in the day, with Brick an excellent debut feature and Looper a pleasingly twisty time travel caper.
All of this made him, in my eyes, the best candidate to take over from Colin Trevorrow on Episode IX. After all, everyone at Disney/Lucasfilm have nothing but praise for him and he’s slotted into their production methods far more successfully than Gareth Edwards, »

Seth Green has enjoyed a very successful career doing silly voices for animated TV shows and specials, most notably as Chris Griffin on Family Guy and innumerable roles on Robot Chicken. Both animated series have famously poked fun at the epic and expansive Star Wars universe over the years. Seth MacFarlane's creation even enjoyed three very special episodes--"Blue Harvest", "Something, Something, Something, Dark Side" and "It's a Trap!"--that paralleled the three original Star Wars films, with Green's Chris Griffin taking on the role of Luke Skywalker. And while there isn't any word of a … »

Before Kathleen Kennedy and co. hired J.J. Abrams to direct “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the movie was one of the hottest gigs in town. Many names circled and were rumored for the job, and David Fincher was among those tossed into the mix. Going to a galaxy far, far away wasn’t a stretch for the filmmaker, who in 1983, was hired by Industrial Light & Magic as an assistant cameraman and matte photographer, and worked on a little movie called “Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.” Obviously, Fincher didn’t direct ‘The Force Awakens,’ but he’s got a fascinating perspective on what it means for a filmmaker to step into that world.

J.J. Abrams managed to successfully reintroduce the Star Wars franchise to the masses with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. He took a little break to let Rian Johnson come in and direct Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but he's coming back for Star Wars 9 and he's got some big ideas. He and screenwriter Chris Terrio are working on the screenplay, and apparently, this is the movie that "unites all three trilogies" together. Here's what a Reddit user had to say after a recent encounter with both Abrams and Terrio.
"They said that they're going to be brave and there will be big surprises. I got the impression that Jj felt like he had to refresh previous Star Wars moments for a modern audience in Tfa, and now it feels like they have free reign to do what they want. Apparently they've had no interference from Kathleen or Pablo or the Lucasfilm Story Group. »

What happened after the second Death Star was destroyed? The Empire struck back — or, at least, tried to. The new trailer for EA's Star Wars: Battlefront II teases the aftermath of Return of the Jedi from the side of the bad guys.
The trailer follows Cmdr. Iden Versio — leader of the Imperial task force Inferno Squad at the center of the new game's mythology — as she witnesses the destruction of the second Death Star from the moon of Endor and tries to rally her forces for the ultimate counterattack. "The Empire's time has come," Versio says grimly in the trailer, »

EA Games has unveiled a brand new trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II, which focuses on the game’s single player campaign. Taking place in the thirty year gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, the campaign follows the character of Iden Versio, the leader of the Empire’s elite special forces unit Inferno Squad, as she seeks revenge against the Rebellion for the death of The Emperor and the destruction of the second Death Star. Watch the new trailer here…

Earlier today, director Ron Howard finally confirmed the title Solo: A Star Wars Story, while announcing that the Han Solo movie has wrapped production. Just before filming wrapped, the director took to social media to confirm two very surprising characters that will be brought into the Star Wars canon, Tag and Bink. Before this reveal, these characters were previously only featured in comics known as the Star Wars Legends series, (i.e. Expanded Universe), and weren't considered part of the Star Wars canon, until now.
Director Ron Howard sent out a photo featuring two Imperial officers with the hashtag #tagandbink, two humorous characters created by comic book writer Kevin Rubio for the 2001 comic Tag and Bink Are Dead, a parody of sorts on the classic Tom Stoppard play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. Like Rosencrantz and Gildenstern, Tag and Bink inadvertently set in motion some of the major events in the Star Wars universe, »
Ron Howard has taken to Twitter today to announce that filming has wrapped on the Han Solo Star Wars Anthology movie, and we’ve now got something official to refer to it to as well, as the filmmaker has taken the opportunity to reveal that it is going by the title Solo: A Star Wars Story…

It looks like the fan favourite Dark Horse Comics characters Tag and Bink are set to join the official Star Wars canon, with Ron Howard taking to Twitter to reveal that the duo will appear in the upcoming Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, where they will be portrayed by screenwriter Jon Kasdan and first assistant director Toby Hefferman.

If you’re unfamiliar with Tag & Bink, the duo were created by Kevin Rubio (director of the fan film Troops), and are the Rosencrantz & Guildenstern of the Star Wars universe, crossing paths with every major character in the Saga as they influence the events of both the Original and Prequel trilogies. You can read about the characters over at Wookieepedia.

Following Howard’s tweet, Rubio and Kasdan then had the following exchange… »

The Creative Death sub-sub-genre took flight in the ‘70s with The Omen (1976), as that little imp Damien (and his dad) dispatched the cast in different macabre and entertaining ways. (Variety is the spice, and all that.) The ’78 sequel continued the burgeoning tradition, leading us up to The Legacy (1978) - a film that takes its own stab at variety by marrying The Old Dark House to The Dark Underlord and delivering a fun, wicked (albeit goofy) little offspring.
Released in September in the U.K. (and the following September stateside) by Columbia-emi-Warner (and Universal in the U.S.), The Legacy brought in $11 million against its $2.5 million budget, making it a commercial if not critical success. That this British/American co-production manages to combine their unique aesthetics into something coherent is and of itself some kind of horror miracle.

Since the second trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi landed on Monday, fans have been watching it over and over, dissecting it within an inch of its life for any clues they may find. Even those who’ve watched it a hundred times might still have missed this tiny reference to Return of the Jedi that was hidden within it, though.
In the trailer, we finally get to see the follow-up to the cliffhanger at the end of The Force Awakens, as Luke accepts his old lightsaber from Rey. In this moment, we see a close-up of his robotic hand. As it lacks human-like skin, fans weren’t previously sure whether this was the same cybernetic limb he had in Return of the Jedi.
But, if you look closely, you can see that the plate across the back of the hand is damaged. This is the exact same place »

Many have compared the Porgs in Star Wars: The Last Jedi to the Ewoks in Return of the Jedi, but a few Star Wars fans have taken it a step further and started comparing the Porgs to Jar Jar Binks, quite possibly the most hated character ever. However, those fans may have been on to something as Jar Jar Binks can clearly be seen in the new poster for The Last Jedi. When the new poster was released, many began to notice that Darth Vader's helmet is sort of visible from a certain angle, but this changes everything.
Many believe that you can see Darth Vader's mask in the poster if you look hard enough, and that Disney did it deliberately. But what happens when you flip that poster upside down? Obviously, this is a joke that a fan made, but it is pretty well done and plays off of »

They helped bring down the Empire, but for some, they helped ruin an entire franchise. When Return Of The Jedi arrived in 1983, its cuddly, mischievous Ewoks immediately divided opinion among Star Wars fans: for some, George Lucas' space opera ended not with a bang, but with a bunch of spear-waving teddy bears frolicking about in a forest.
Almost 35 years later, and it might seem as though history's about to repeat itself. As footage from writer-director Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi emerged, debate over things like Rey's origins and Luke's grim utterances was joined by another conversation: what are those cute, wide-eyed things that look like »
Following the release of the new trailer on Monday, it seems like we can expect the Star Wars: The Last Jedi marketing floodgates to open. Yesterday we got an IMAX poster for the hotly-anticipated second chapter of the Sequel Trilogy, and now we have a look at an IMAX theater display, which seemingly teases a potential turn to the Dark Side for Luke Skywalker…

The above image was shared to Twitter with the caption “Light side or the dark”, and you will of course notice that Luke is present on both sides, and is looking rather Sith Lord-like on the First Order side, where he’s joined by Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma and Snoke’s Praetorian Guards.
Rumours and speculation of a turn to the Dark Side for Luke Skywalker have been circulating since before the »

It's highly doubtful that Darth Vader will emerge in his armor at some point in Star Wars: The Last Jedi (seeing as how he died in Return of the Jedi). But his presence will certainly loom large over the proceedings in this second to the last chapter in the Skywalker saga. He is Luke and Leia's father, after all. And grandfather to Kylo Ren. He may also be blood related to Rey. And there could be possible ties to Snoke. However this grand space opera eventually trots out in the long run, Darth Vader still plays a huge role in the new movies. And that is never more apparent than on the official Last Jedi one-sheet that dropped yesterday before the all-new trailer attacked the Internet.
You may not be able to see Darth Vader on this Star Wars 8 poster, which we've included for you to look at below. But his presence is there. »
The new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer has finally arrived and it has everyone talking. And there is a whole lot to talk about. But even with Snoke being revealed in his true form, Rey possibly going dark and Kylo Ren looking like he might kill Princess Leia, conversation online has absolutely exploded in regard to the Porg that was featured in the trailer. That's right, the little space penguins that some are calling the new Ewoks have absolutely taken over.
This new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer has so much going on and it's so dark that it really is a lot to take in. However, there is one brief moment toward the middle of the trailer where we see Chewbacca in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon and, riding right alongside him is a Porg. And we finally get to hear what one sounds like. For real. »
It’s hard to believe but it’s less than ten weeks before Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres in theatres, and now (finally!!!!) we have a second trailer to keep us going. We’ve been eagerly awaiting this since the first trailer released back in April, which left us stunned by Luke Skywalker’s announcement that “it’s time for the Jedi…to end”. End?! Without the Jedi, who exactly is going to stop The First Order?!!!! Or did Skywalker mean something else, since it seems clear that he’s also training Rey in the use of “the Force” in this new film?
Well, although Monday night’s trailer was well crafted, it still didn’t give a lot away. But »
