Is Mace Windu getting his own Star Wars spin-off movie? That's completely possible, as Disney and Lucasfilm have previously announced that at least one new Star Wars movie is coming every year for infinity. We know that a spin-off movie is planned for 2020, but the title and subject has yet to be announced. Could we be getting a standalone adventure about one of the greatest Jedi that ever lived? Maybe. Maybe not. But we're at least getting a prequel comic about Mace Windu.
That's right, Samuel L. Jackson's purple toting Bmf is coming to the pages of Marvel in a new 5-issue miniseries that will expand Mace's legend in the official Star Wars cinematic canon. Star Wars News dropped the exciting announcement. And we have the official PR direct from the source.
Having seen Revenge of the Sith at least 1000 times this week because of my son’s newfound obsession for it, I’ve grown to be more and more irritated with Padme. In Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones she was 100 times cooler. At least in those films you saw a little action, her bravery, and yes, her shooting a gun. But in Revenge of the Sith it’s all so mushy and lovey dovey that my son asks me to fast forward every single scene she’s in. And I don’t blame him. Her pregnancy must have hit her right in

Director James Wan has been hard at work on developing the big screen Aquaman movie the character deserves and has lined up a fairly impressive cast, based on what we know so far. Now, all those pre-production efforts are being put to use as cameras have started rolling on the film down in Australia.

Sure, it's not a terribly exciting set picture, it's exciting nonetheless that the film is actually going to happen. While I've never been the biggest fan of Aquaman, I have a lot of confidence in James Wan as a director and have enjoyed »

There is no epic greater than Star Wars, the most impactful franchise of all time (sorry, Vin Diesel). While Star Wars certainly fills our hearts with joy, can we say that it also fills our stomachs with hunger? Both food and drink pop up in the Star Wars universe more often than you might think. In honor of Star Wars Day (aka May the 4th be with you), here are the 10 best food moments from Star Wars.

It was earlier reported that the highly-anticipated Aquaman movie starts filming this week. Now, director James Wan has shared the first set photo as production gets underway today! Unfortunately the photo doesn't offer our first look at Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, or any of the other stars in costume. But the filmmaker does tease the first set he's filming on, along with the first day's slate. While the director didn't offer any specifics about this first scene, it appears to be set on a ship or a submarine.
The director posted the photo on Twitter, where he also revealed the film's working title is #Ahab while stating that, "Months of intensive prep have led to this." Before yesterday's report, there was news that filming on Aquaman will begin this summer, although a specific shoot date was not announced at that time. There were also later reports claiming the production is »
Turner's TBS is about to launch a new annual television tradition by presenting all six original Star Wars movies together on Thursday, May 4, also known around the world as Star Wars Day.

Star Wars fans adopted the slogan "May the Fourth be with You" in recent years as a rallying cry to proclaim their love of the saga on May 4, a day which fans have designated to celebrate all things Star Wars. Lucasfilm, the film company that created Star Wars, has fully embraced the spirit of fandom that makes the day so special by »
As the Star Wars saga continues to expand with the sequel trilogy and a variety of spinoffs, it’s clear that this is one franchise we’d best get used to spending time with over the next little while. And with May 4th quickly approaching, it seems that mini-celebrations honoring the iconic series are starting to pop up everywhere you look.
The latest of which comes to us courtesy of TBS, who will be broadcasting the prequel and original trilogies all in one go, an event which looks set to take upwards of sixteen hours.

Kicking off at 6:40 Am with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and closing at 8:15 Pm with Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, the movies will reportedly be presented with limited commercial interruption, something which is sure to come as a relief for those of »

In 2001, one year before the launch of Attack of the Clones, a grassroots movement swept across a number of English-speaking countries: Jediism. The philosophy had been around for generations, of course; the Jedi belief can be traced back to the release of A New Hope in ’77, but it was only in 2001 that residents began recording their religion as Jediism on the national census. Perhaps more than anything else, that movement made one thing crystal clear: for many, Star Wars is much more than just a blockbuster movie series.
The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams echoed that sentiment while speaking at the recent Milken Global Conference (via TheWrap). Joined by Apple’s Eddy Cue and Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book, The Lion King), Abrams touched base on the franchise’s impassioned fanbase, before stating that “Star Wars isn’t a movie, it’s a religion. But this religion people have — they »

Well, whaddya know: The internet doesn’t hate the “Star Wars” prequels as much as it used to. At the forefront of this apparent reappraisal is, of course, a never-ending barrage of memes emanating from the r/PrequelMemes subreddit, whose numbers have grown more in the last few months than Jango Fett’s did in the lead-up to the Clone Wars.
In addition to being frequently hilarious, this phenomenon raises a question: Are people joining in on the fun because they already love Episodes I–III, or are the memes actually inspiring them to go a little easier on the once-loathed prequels?
The answer is probably a mixture of both, but allow me to make a case for the latter effect. Shortly before “The Force Awakens” came out, I did what I imagine many others did: watched all six existing “Star Wars” movies in order. I hadn’t seen any of them in years, »

We all know how Anakin Skywalker feels about sand, based on his quote from Attack of the Clones:
"I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere."
Yes, it truly does get everywhere, especially when you live on a planet with nothing but sand. Tatoonine is so rife with it that its indigenous race, the Tuskin Raiders, are commonly referred to as Sand People. And we all know that even a short trip to the beach can leave sand in your shoes, and even your bed, for days (been there...).
So how does Hayden Christensen, who played Anakin in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, feel about sand? I'm glad you asked! At Star Wars Celebration this weekend, he was asked his own opinion on sand and gave this similar response:
"Well you know, it's not very smooth. It doesn't really stay in one place, »
