When Disney purchased all of Lucasfilm back in 2012, one of the things they needed to do was reset the very messy canon. Since they did that, there have been quite a few new novels, comic books and other such expanded universe goodness for Star Wars fans to enjoy. But so far, this content has yet to address one big, sore thumb: Jar Jar Binks. That all changes now, because the upcoming novel Star Wars: Aftermath - Empire's End finally gives us some answers and reveals the fate of the maligned Gungan.
Fair warning, this article contains spoilers for Star Wars: Aftermath - Empire's End. Chronologically speaking, we last saw Jar Jar Binks, as played by Ahmed Best, at Padme's funeral in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. But even with all of the Star Wars content that has been and exists in the time period after that movie, »
Right off the top, we need to make it very clear that this may not mean anything, but at the same time, this could also potentially be something for Star Wars fans to get excited about. But only maybe. Recently, an IMDb page for the proposed Star Wars: Underworld TV show wound up on Reddit and interestingly enough, it actually lists a premiere date for the series. So, is Lucasfilm actually planning on bringing Star Wars: Underworld to the small screen in 2018?
As many Star Wars fans may know, Star Wars: Underworld, a live-action series that would have taken place between the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope, was originally conceived back in 2005 by George Lucas. But, the series was ultimately shelved for budgetary reasons. Now, the IMDb page for the series has a premiere date listed as December 15, 2018. On the one hand, »
What would Rosario Dawson look like as the animated Star Wars character Ahsoka Tano? All you have to do is ask, and fan art maestro BossLogic comes to the rescue. Shortly after the actress said she was interested in playing the Jedi in a live-action Star Wars movie, Bl offered his take on what that might look like. And it's perfection. BossLogic had this to say about his latest creation.
"Here is @rosariodawson as a Ahsoka Tano x Shaak Ti fusion for some fun (So there is no confusion :P )"
As far as we know, there are no plans for Ahsoka Tano to show up in any impending Star Wars live-action movie. Lucasfilm and Disney are in the process of doing some intense universe building that not only includes the live-action movies but also plenty of comic books, animated series and merchandise lines that all tie-in nicely with each other. »
Trish Sie is taking over directing duties from Elizabeth Banks, who helmed “Pitch Perfect 2.” Banks will reprise her role as Gail — a commentator for the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella — and remain a producer, along with Max Handelman of Brownstone Productions and Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Entertainment.

The film will hit theaters on Dec. 22. Vice President of Production Sara Scott will oversee the project for Universal.

The future of the Star Wars movie universe is big, bright and wide. Yes, Disney and Lucasfilm are going to make more saga movies, but given the success of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the playbook is pretty open now to explore other stories from the Star Wars universe. One character that could eventually make her way to the live-action side of a galaxy far, far away is Ahsoka Tano, and now it seems like Rosario Dawson might be interested in playing her.
Rosario Dawson recently had a Twitter exchange that definitely seems to indicate she would be interested in playing Anakin Skywalker's former apprentice in a live-action Star Wars movie in the future. A Twitter user by the name of John Kilker suggested to artist BossLogic, who is fairly well known for his fan art, to do Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano. Her response to that was very receptive. »
Earlier today, Marvel finally released a full list of comic books on the way this April, and one of the most interesting reveals is featured on the cover of Star Wars: Darth Maul #3. The highly anticipated solo series for the iconic villain launches next month and it promises to delve into his past in the years before he squared off with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn.
However, we now know that Darth Sidious’ apprentice had some history with a couple of other familiar faces from Star Wars canon, as Cad Bane and Aurra Sing, two fan-favourite bounty hunters from the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, will also play a role in Maul’s story.

For years, long before Disney purchased Lucasfilm and guaranteed we would be getting more Star Wars movies, video games were a great place for fans of a galaxy far, far away to get their fix. For all of the great Star Wars video games we do have and ultimately will be (hopefully) getting in the future, there are plenty that never quite got there, but exist only in idea and leave us to wonder what might have been. One of those games was supposed to center on beloved bad guy Darth Maul, and now some new concept art from the game has surfaced.
This concept art surfaced on the Art Station blog, courtesy of Thomas Szakolczay, who worked on the game back in 2011. Some pieces of art and even an early video that showed a prototype of the game, which had the working title of Star Wars: Maul, have surfaced before. »
Until the first Star Wars 8 trailer surfaces, presumably at some point over the next few months, all we have is a slew of speculation regarding a number of story points. Earlier today, we reported about the avian creatures that inhabit the sacred land of Ahch-to with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), which may or may not be creatures known as "convorees" that were featured in the animated shows Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. Now we have yet another rumor that claims the villainous Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) will have a brand new Tie Fighter that he'll be flying, which may be quite reminiscent of his great-grandfather Darth Vader's ship.
This new report comes from Making Star Wars, which claims that Kylo Ren will have his own personal ship, said to be a "First Order Tie Advanced" ship. This new Tie Fighter ship is said to be quite »
Last month, a rumor sufaced that offered details about some of the alien creatures that Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) has been sharing his exile island Ahch-To with in Star Wars 8. These creatures are said to be small birds which resemble the actual puffin birds that can be found on Skellig Michael Island, the Irish island where the Ahch-To scenes were filmed in both Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars 8. Many fans noticed that these small avian creatures, who reportedly stand just 15 inches tall, are equipped with "razor-sharp teeth" and have been described as "a bird meets a Gremlin," are quite similar to creatures that have been featured on Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, dubbed "convorees." While there has been no confirmation from LucasFilm yet, another report claims these creatures just may be convorees.
Making Star Wars released the original report of these creatures in December, »
Saw Gerrera is a character who we first met in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but much to the surprise of everyone, an older (and far more damaged) version of the character was brought back in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story last month. Now, Star Wars Rebels will reveal how the resistance fighter got from point A to B in the years which passed between the TV show and movie.
As you can see in the trailer above, this Saw (also voiced by Forest Whitaker) has not sustained the injuries which left him hobbling around and gasping for air in Rogue One, but he’s every bit as extreme in his views when it comes to stopping the Empire and that’s something which looks set to put him at odds with the Star Wars Rebels team. As of right now, Saw is only expected to appear in the two-part premiere on Disney Xd, »
