Though it may have leaked ahead of time last week, Disney has formally unveiled the next chapter in its lucrative sandbox franchise via Game Informer as Disney Infinity 3.0, which will bring together faces old and new for another bout of pixelated action.
As fans of the series are well aware, Disney’s creative IP is all about the characters leading the battle charge, and the mainline attraction for 3.0 is the addition of Star Wars and its prized assets. Catering to both trilogies, the latest installment will launch with Twilight of the Republic later this year, focusing on the adventures of Anakin et al. post-Attack of the Clones. As for Rise Against the Empire, old-school Star Wars fans will be pleased to note that this story pack will bring back favorites such as Luke, Leia and Han. Characters can transition between trilogies, too, because continuity has no hold on the Disney Infinity universe. »

Boba Fett has been the subject of rumours ever since Disney and Lucasfilm announced a series of stand-alone (now known as the Anthology) Star Wars films to run in between The Force Awakens and the other main episodes of the new trilogy. Now, according to The Wrap, we’re not far from official confirmation that the galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunter’s origins will be the subject of the film targeting a 2018 release.Until there is an official confirmation, however, we’re duty bound to sound the Rumour Alert Siren. But given all the chatter, it seems certain that some aspect of Fett will be explored, beyond his limited screen time in the original trilogy (you know, introduced in Empire Strikes Back seeming like a cool badass with a funky ship, then apparently killed off in Return Of The Jedi via a series of mishaps that Buster Keaton would »
After being shrouded in secrecy for several months, Disney and LucasFilm recently revealed that the first Star Wars spinoff, Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, will focus on a group of rebels on a mission to steal plans for the first Death Star. While we still don't have any confirmed details about the second Star Wars Spin-Off, a new report claims that the plot will center on the origin story of famed bounty hunter Boba Fett. While the character has not been cast yet, there were rumors earlier this year that Disney and LucasFilm are eyeing Michael Fassbender to play Boba Fett, but that has never been confirmed.
In the original Star Wars trilogy, Boba Fett was played by Jeremy Bulloch, with Daniel Logan playing Boba as a young boy in the prequel Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. Boba is a Mandalorian warrior who was trained by Jango Fett, »
While Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One will be with us next year, its follow up, due out in 2018, has been making the news in a big way this week, due to Josh Trank leaving the project. Now, attention turns once again to the now directorless spin-off, with The Wrap reporting that the movie will focus on fan favourite bounty hunter, Boba Fett. This has been a turn of events that has being rumoured for quite a while now (it would be a stupid move not to exploit such a beloved character), and while the outlet says it will be an origin movie, Boba Fett’s origins have already being explored in Attack of the Clones. Most likely, if it does go ahead, the movie will follow the galaxy’s favourite bad ass on an adventure leading up to his appearance in The Empire Strikes Back. It’s all a rumour at this stage, »

Happy Star Wars Day everyone! After new images and details from Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuted online earlier today [see here and here], The Wrap is now reporting that the second spin-off in the Star Wars Anthology series is set to focus on the origin and backstory of Boba Fett.
Due for release in 2018, the second Anthology movie was to have been directed by Chronicle and Fantastic Four director Josh Trank, although he exited the project this past week and the film is now seeking a new director before it goes before the camera sometime next year.
The character of Boba Fett first appeared on film in the second Star Wars film The Empire Strikes Back and also appearing in Return of the Jedi before featuring as a young boy alongside his father Jango Fett in the middle chapter of the prequel trilogy, Attack of the Clones. It is expected that the »

Josh Trank was recently dumped by Disney and Lucasfilm from the still untitled Star Wars Anthology movie, but it's still moving ahead even without a director currently at the helm. According to The Wrap, whoever takes over will get to tell the origin story of Boba Fett! It's going to be an origin story for the iconic character, presumably taking place some time after the events of Attack of the Clones. After all, the "adventures" of Boba as a kid wouldn't be all that exciting! There had been rumours that Rogue One (which stars Felicity Jones, Ben Mendelsohn and Riz Ahmed) would revolve around bounty hunters, but it seems as if it will be this movie which delves into that world. There's no word on who's set to replace Trank or who will play Fett, so be sure to share your thoughts on who the right people for the job are below. »
It looks like Josh Trank may have just lost out on the dream of countless fanboys. Coming on the news last week that he would no longer be helming the second Star Wars Anthology film slated for 2018, The Wrap has learned that the movie is in fact going to be about Boba Fett. Since the Star Wars Anthology is part of the cinematic canon, that means that Boba Fett will have to remain the offspring of clone trooper template Jango Fett who was killed by Mace Windu in Attack Of The Clones.

The nerd community virtually exploded yesterday morning when Jj Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy revealed the brand new teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now that you've had a chance to digest it a few times, let's talk about what all we're seeing and why it's so important!
I had the good fortune to be in the main event Hall yesterday and watched the trailer reveal live with thousands of other fans, and it was quite the experience. Sitting their cheering with the crowd and practically bursting with excitement is something I won't soon forget. That said, even though they played it a couple times, being at the Celebration Hall didn't exactly give me much chance to really think about what I was seeing. Fortunately, I've had a few chances now to watch it again in a more intimate setting, and can pass on some more information your way »

A few minutes ago, Disney dropped a cinematic bomb on us by releasing the newest Trailer for the upcoming Episode VII of the Star Wars saga. This one, called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is the start of a new trilogy and a direct sequel to the main trilogy that ended with Return of the Jedi. Having seen the Trailer (which you can scope out below), I’m frankly stunned at how good it is, particularly in terms of one specific moment at the end. I can’t help but say it right at the forefront so we can discuss…seeing Harrison Ford back as Han Solo, standing next to Chewbacca, well, it gave me chills. Filmmaker J.J. Abrams might have gold here, if not better than that. I’ve already talked about how he seems to be the right man for the job, and he’s just proving it more and more. »

As the world prepares to completely lose its mind with the release of the new Star Wars film, it is obviously time to try to stir the pot as much as possible. That in mind, the previous films from the franchise are going to be released on April 10th in digital edition, and with some new bonuses to help sucker you in to the purchase.
They also come with the legacy bonus content, and put together, these are impressive releases.

And, since we’re looking at a new generation who need to get on board for the new film, this is the way to go.

Disney, Lucasfilm, and 20th Century Fox (the studio that released the first six movies) made the announcement Monday, touting the release of "The 'Star Wars' Digital Movie Collection," which includes every "Wars" flick from 1999's Episode I, "The Phantom Menace," to 1983's Episode VI, "Return of the Jedi."

We’ve kind of expected a big Star Wars re-release as the new films start to be pushed into cinemas, and now it has been announced, in a deal between Lucasfilm, Disney and original owners Fox, that the original saga will hit the home entertainment platforms from the 10th of April! Yes, in-three-days 10th of April. If you, like me, own the original trilogy on VHS, the whole saga on DVD in their special edition forms and then the Blu-Rays that hit markets a little while agao, you’ll be wondering why we need to buy them again. Well, it seems that the new digital editions will come with some new ‘never-before-seen’ materials, as well as some old documentaries from time of release, and some new ‘conversations’ with artists.
We’re hearing that you’ll be able to purchase the new editions from the likes of iTunes, Google Play and Amazon. »
