The season finale of Star Wars Rebels saw the return of the fan favorite character, Ahsoka Tano, from The Clone Wars. While we now know that the one-time padawan of Anakin Skywalker survived the Jedi purge, what does the future hold for her? We got the chance to talk with voice actress Ashley Eckstein in a Q&A at Star Wars Celebration, and got some information on how the character has evolved in the years since the Clone Wars, and what she's up to in Season 2. Come inside to learn more!
Ahsoka is an interesting character. In a handful of seasons on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, she went from one of the most annoying characters, to being a fan favorite. When the show was cancelled after the Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm, fans were desperate to see how her story ended. Rumors of her return in Star Wars Rebels (the »

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. »

Occasionally, a movie villain will pause for a moment to deliver a brief story or anecdote. And often, these apparently incidental tales tell us a lot about an antagonist's state of mind, experiences or warped worldview.
We've compiled a selection of 20 here. Some of them are blackly funny. Many are disturbing. One or two are even moving. The first one's very strange. All of them bring something unique to each particular film in which they appear, and all of them are laced with a delicious hint of menace.

"When I was a little boy at my grandmama's place, she had a lovely goose. I named her Edith, after the French singer Edith Piaf..."
We begin with a delightfully weird story from Peter Hyams' 2013 thriller, »
Star Wars fans certainly have a lot to look forward to this year; not only is the much-anticipated Episode VII coming to theatres in December, but game-wise the long-awaited Battlefront reboot is too, and already there’s much speculation as to how the two releases may intersect.
Recent rumours seemed to suggest that Battlefront’s storyline will directly influence – and even overlap with – the events of The Force Awakens, but just how they will connect is still a mystery. With the entirety of the Star Wars franchise now open to be explored by the developers at Dice, countless opportunities are presented to intertwine the game with Jj. Abrams’ first foray into a galaxy far, far away.
Pandemic’s Battlefront II had a campaign bolted onto the main experience, and despite being rather rudimentary in scale, it more than delivered – giving players the opportunity of experiencing the rise of »

One of the people most directly responsible for the design of the "Star Wars" prequel is Doug Chiang, so it seemed only fitting that I would hop on the phone with him to discuss "Star Wars: The Digital Collection" the morning after the announcement was made. Before we spoke, Fox sent over a clip from the extras on the "Digital Collection," and in it, Doug talks about lessons he learned from George Lucas about design, lessons that Disney summed up for me in the following bullet points: Rule I: Silhouette As a designer, you can get bogged down in the minutiae of perfect form and proportions. Doug had to learn to think and draw like a kid again. Don’t worry about the details; they don’t define a design. Rule II: The 3-second Rule When the audience sees something new on screen, they have to immediately connect with this new item. »

"Furious 7" continues to make history. As of Thursday, the latest installment in the "Fast and Furious" franchise had earned $191.9 million in its first week. That places it at no. 10 for all-time seven day tallies ahead of familiar titles such as "The Hunger Games," "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" and every single "Twilight" movie. On Friday, the James Wan directed blockbuster pulled in another $18.8 million for $210.7 million in just eight days. And, yes, Universal Pictures has no fears of their monster relinquishing the title of "No. 1 movie in America" any time soon. Remaining in second place was DreamWorks Animation's "Home." The 20th Century Fox release earned $5.6 million on Friday for an impressive $116.1 million to date. Debuting in third place was another Fox release, "The Longest Ride." The latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation took in $5.5 million Friday for what should somewhere around $14 million for the three-day. That's »

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. »

Come Friday, online retailers like iTunes and Amazon will start selling all six previously released Star Wars films (Star Wars, Return of the Jedi, The Empire Strikes Back, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith) in digital HD with "never-before-seen" interviews and deleted scenes, according to the New York Times. "Viewers will have the Rebel forces at their beck and call across their favorite devices anywhere — sunbathing at the beach, relaxing in their living room with friends, or waiting to board a flight to Endor," Disney and 20th Century Fox said. Rentals won't be available, and prices will vary by store. You will, however, reportedly be able to buy the episodes individually or as a set. Game changer! Episode VII comes out December 18, so you have lots of time to watch, re-watch, and re-re-watch the saga in preparation. »

Update: all six Star Wars films are out as HD downloads on the 10th April. Prices and trailers have been revealed...
Update: Yesterday, it was revealed that the first six episodes in the Star Wars saga are to be made available to buy digitally for the first time.
The movies will be made available worldwide on the same day - that's the 10th April - along with a clutch of new and old features to accompany each film.
Disappointingly, we'll be getting the later, digitally-modified Star Wars films rather than the original theatrical release.
It's also fair to say that the prices won't please everyone, either; a quick look on Xbox Video reveals that the full set's going for £69.99, while the individual films will set you back £13.99.
In the Us, the prices are $89.99 for the set and $19.99 per episode; if Google's calculator's correct, that makes the American set cheaper than »
