Just a few days ago, the duo exchanged faux-barbs in a series of good-humored tweets back and forth to each other. The “argument'” escalated quickly and Twitter users following the threads enjoyed every second of it.
And now the two are back at it again. This time, however, the string of banter began with one Twitter user posting a series of photos featuring a lego version of the couple’s “future wedding” at Hidden Heart Park.
@MeredthSalenger here's an attempt at something more traditional. @pattonoswalt 's hair needs a bit of work. »

There’s something exceedingly heartening about the star of a giant franchise revealing themselves to be as invested in that property as regular fans are, while talking about franchise entries in which they did not feature. Such is the case for Mark Hamill – also known as Luke Skywalker – as he spoke to the press during the recent Disney Expo, D23 and expressed his dismay about the loss of Darth Maul.
“Darth Maul was just the coolest looking. I couldn’t believe they disposed of him so quickly. I thought he would last through all three movies!”
Darth Maul is an icon of the Star Wars universe, despite the fact that he appeared only in the first of the prequel trilogy. The distinctive Sith Lord, played by Ray Park, was portrayed as an ambitious young man seeking to excel under the mentorship of his Dark Side masters. This implied some rivalry between himself and Anakin Skywalker, »

The fourth episode of webseries Star Wars: Forces of Destiny has arrived online today. While the first two outings for the series, released earlier this week, starred The Force Awakens’s Rey (as played by Daisy Ridley) and the third featured Princess Leia, this latest instalment moves away from a hero from the movies to focus on a TV fan favourite instead.
Titled “The Padawan Path,” episode four stars Ahsoka Tano, the Padawan of Anakin Skywalker, as introduced in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. In this short, Ahsoka – or “snips” as Anakin calls her – is running late for an important awards ceremony due to some problems with a marauding droid.
Fans of The Clone Wars will notice that the short sees Ashley Eckstein reprise the role from the animated series, and its follow-up Rebels. Matt Lanter is also back on board as Anakin and, of course, there »

Last week, LucasFilm made the jaw-dropping announcement that directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will no longer be at the helm of Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, with just three weeks left of production. Just a few days later, Ron Howard was confirmed to step in and take their place, and today a new parody video reveals that one of the most hated characters in the Star Wars universe, Jar Jar Binks, wants to use this opportunity of a new director stepping in to put him in the movie and start a comeback for the character. Thankfully, this is only a parody, and it will not likely happen for real.
Funny or Die debuted a new video that features an individual disguised through a silhouette that is calling for the return for Jar Jar Binks in the new Han Solo Star Wars movie. Most discerning fans will realize right »
One of the cool things about the Star Wars sequels is that they’ve created a group of appealing characters. People who watched the prequels didn’t get that. We got whiny Anakin Skywalker, please-go-away Jar Jar Binks, and a host of other characters that fans of Star Wars: The Clone Wars assure us are good as long as you didn’t watch the movies that introduced those characters. Meanwhile, we’re all on board with Rey, Finn, Poe, and pretty much everyone else that we met in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. [caption id="attachment_641902" align="alignright" … »

Two weeks ago, we reported that Rosario Dawson was vigorously campaigning for the role of Ahsoka Tano, a fan-favourite Jedi from the Star Wars CG TV shows. Now, to coincide with Star Wars Day, which was yesterday, May 4th, she’s back at it again, re-Tweeting an interesting fan theory as to how the character might show up in a live-action film.
First appearing in Star Wars: The Clone Wars as Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan, the plucky young Jedi quickly became a big hit with viewers and would go on to appear in Star Wars: Rebels as well as a novel titled Star Wars: Ahsoka. Currently, her fate is uncertain, as the finale of Rebels season 2 saw her duelling her own master, Anakin – though we’re not entirely sure if she survived or not.
Still, fans have been busy concocting ways for her to return, with the most »

Happy Star Wars Day! Since the early 1980's Star Wars fans have celebrated May 4th every year as Star Wars Day. It wasn't until 2011 when there was an official acknowledgement by various organizations and fans that May 4th would be known as May The 4th Be With You aka Star Wars Day. The following year fans of the Dark Side and Empire made May 5th their celebration day known as Revenge of the Fifth in honor of the third episode of the Star Wars franchise Revenge of the Sith.

Is a popular prequel-era Jedi about to be introduced on the big screen in Han Solo: A Star Wars Story? New rumors suggest as much. Though there isn't a confirmation from LucasFilm and Disney. And this particular Jedi's name, if participating, has been altered from its original form.
Han Solo was a no show at Star Wars Celebration last weekend, even though many fans expected that the first teaser trailer would be shown. But we didn't even get a first look at Alden Ehrenreich in costume. There was a definite void felt in the Anthology arena. One that Making Star Wars is helping to fill this afternoon with news of a previously unannounced character that will show up in the second Star Wars Story.
Msw claims that while attending Star Wars Celebration, a piece of paper was placed in front of them containing the words 'Red Cup' which is the »
As Lucasfilm begins to plan out the next decade and a half of Star Wars movies, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni has been chatting to Coming Soon about whether he has any aspirations to make the jump to live-action and get behind the camera for a Star Wars Anthology film.
“I’d be crazy to say I’m not interested in that,” said Filoni. “I don’t want to say that would be the ultimate, because I really enjoy the stories I’m telling now and I would never undercut them by saying they’re something less. I think the craft we do and the work we do in these series is tremendous and the artists we have working on them are amazing. But I can’t help but be curious about this live-action world and what I see there and the tremendous opportunities that are around me. »

David Filoni started off working at Lucasfilm under the watchful eye of Star Wars creator George Lucas and after spending years on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the producer really made a name for himself when he became showrunner of Disney Xd’s wildly popular Star Wars Rebels.
That series is sadly about to reach its end with season 4 and what’s next for Filoni isn’t clear. The studio is rumored to be putting together another animated series to air in the very near future, but as of now, there’s nothing to say that Filoni will be involved with it in any way. That doesn’t mean he won’t be sticking around the Star Wars universe, though.
Asked in a recent interview if he’d like to make the leap from small screen to big in order to helm a live-action movie set in that galaxy far, »

It’s an unfortunate given when you do a prequel series that you have to explain where your never-before-seen characters are during the action of the main franchise. This is something the Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars: The Clone Wars creators have struggled with — and the show’s fans have worried over — as the […]

The Star Wars news from Celebration continues to come thick and fast, and during today’s Star Wars Rebels panel it has been announced that the upcoming fourth season of the Disney Xd animated series will be its last. Check out the official trailer here…
Rebels creator Dave Filoni has earlier revealed that fan favourite former Jedi Ahsoka Tano will be returning in the fourth season, as well as unveiling some concept art of Captain Rex which seemingly supported the fan theory that he’s part of Han Solo’s Endor Strike Team in Return of the Jedi.
Meanwhile, Filoni has also unveiled a previously-unreleased and unfinished clip from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which shows Boba Fett in a standoff with fellow bounty hunter Cad Bane. Watch the clip here.

Star Wars Celebration has officially kicked off and things have been absolutely amazing already. We've had a 40th anniversary panel and, most importantly, the Star Wars: The Last Jedi panel, which finally gave us the trailer we've all been dying to see. But there is a lot more going on this weekend and up next is the Heroines of Star Wars panel. You can live stream it right now.
Not everyone can make it down to Orlando, Florida for Star Wars Celebration, but Disney and Lucasfilm have fans all around the world covered. They are live streaming all of the biggest panels and events throughout the entire weekend and that includes the Heroines of Star Wars panel. As any fan of the franchise well knows, strong female characters have been a huge part of Star Wars ever since the very beginning and this panel will cover all of the strong ladies in a galaxy far, »
Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni and Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo took to the stage at Star Wars Celebration yesterday for the Animated Origins and Unexpected Fates panel, during which they dropped a couple of pieces of news that will be of interest to fans of Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex.
As he did during last year’s Celebration, Filoni confirmed that Ahsoka is set to make her return to Star Wars Rebels, revealing that while he initially planned for her showdown with Darth Vader in the season two finale to be her last appearance, fan reaction towards the character ultimately changed her mind. However, the production time required for Rebels meant that by that point, it was impossible to include her in the third season.
Meanwhile, Filoni »

Star Wars Rebels showrunner Dave Filoni seemingly confirmed at Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 that Captain Rex, a character we first met in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, is also around in 1983’s Return of the Jedi. Let’s take a look at the evidence. During Thursday afternoon’s Dave Filoni: Animated Origins and Unexpected Fates panel, the Rebels […]
