Disney Infinity 3.0 is far from a perfect game. Sadly some of the problems plaguing the first two versions return to rear their ugly head while the new lower price hides an unfortunate side effect. Throw Star Wars into the mix and the much ballyhooed recruitment of Ninja Theory to develop the Jedi fighting style and, along with Avalanche Software's continued Toy Box evolution, the latest Starter Pack overcomes its negatives to deliver the most enjoyable and addictive franchise entry yet.
Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm a few years ago made the Star Wars universe ripe to headline a Disney Infinity installment. With Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens debuting in December, this year was the logical choice for a galaxy far, far away to lead Disney's toys-to-life franchise.
The Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Pack carries an Srp of $64.99 or $10 less than the previous installments and the competition. A lower price is always welcome; however, »
There's someone new in the galaxy, and we have a first look at this emerging presence. But who is the mystery woman on Shattered Empire's second issue cover? She looks a little bit like Han Solo's wife, Sana Solo, who was introduced in the main Star Wars comic book title, in a story that takes place prior to Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. It's not her. Star Wars: Shattered Empire is an upcoming Marvel comic series that canonically bridges the 30 year gap between Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And from what we've seen so far, there's going to be more than a few new faces to make things interesting. About the cover, the official Star Wars website had this to say.
"A picture is worth a thousand words. It's been said very often. But »
An illustrated book which started life on Kickstarter has been picked up by Fox.
The story is set in a realm with two races, humans and the jotnar, and centres on a warrior named Vali who found peace in the arms of a woman.
The Kickstarter page states: "For years he has lived far from society, tending to his farm and trying to forget the battles he fought… and the crimes he committed.
"But one day his love disappears, and he must set out to find her. He will once again have to face the creatures of Jotunheim and the powerful Aesir.
"Suddenly, the man he thought he had buried deep down inside has risen to the surface once more... and he comes seeking vengeance. »
If you haven’t heard of Fall of Gods yet, get ready for a massive wave to hit. The Kickstarted illustrated book by Mood Visuals is now available on iTunes, and in other digital formats, as well as in the tangible form, and it isn’t just a massive hit, Twentieth Century Fox picked up the movie rights not long ago.
Just as an aside, if nothing else you should definitely check out the iTunes version, because it’s pretty awesome.
Of course, by the time this starts moving through production, which could be next week the way things are moving, it shouldn’t need a lot of help. The Norse mythos story is a great twist on your average plotline, »

The history of horror cinema has been filled with iconic villains who end up becoming the anchor of a franchise, being the only consistent element across several movies. One such villain is Jason Voorhees, who first made an appearance in the 1980 film Friday the 13th, and has subsequently appeared in eleven other movies, as well as comic books and novels, including a crossover with The Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy Krueger in 2003’s Freddy vs. Jason. Now, however, the villain will be coming to the small screen, as The CW has announced that they are formally working on a tv adaptation of the horror franchise.
The series is being penned by Star Wars: The Clone Wars writers Steve Mitchell and Craig Van Sickle, who previously worked together to create the NBC series The Pretender, which ran for four seasons. They will be taking over the job from first-time scribes Bill Basso and Jordu Schell, »

With just under five months until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters this December, the animated TV series Star Wars Rebels returning for Season 2 this fall, and a slew of Star Wars books arriving in September, fans will be spending a lot of time in a galaxy far, far away in the latter half of this year. Back in March, a report surfaced that claimed LucasFilm is developing a live-action Star Wars TV series, but we haven't heard anything about the project since then. A new report from Cinelinx claims that Disney and LucasFilm are actually developing three separate live-action TV shows with Netflix, in a deal that is said to be similar to Marvel's four superhero TV shows on the streaming service.
Unfortunately, no details were given about the shows themselves, or where they may be situated within the Star Wars universe. The report did "guess," though, »
Well, here's a weird piece of trivia. Those of you more knowledgeable "Star Wars" heads may already know this anecdote/factoid, but for those of you who thought the prequels could've have much been worse—you were right! Ahmed Best has been the voice of much maligned character Jar Jar Binks from the prequels and beyond, more recently playing the character in "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Lego Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out." However, as he tells Vice, things could've gone quite differently — the role could've been played by Michael Jackson. "That's what George [Lucas] told me," Best said. "Me, Natalie Portman, and George's kids—we were at Wembley arena at Michael Jackson's concert. We were taken backstage and we met Michael. There was Michael and Lisa Marie [Presley]. George introduced me as Jar Jar and I was like, 'That's kind of weird.' Michael was like, 'Oh. Ok. »

We have already seen the first Guardians of the Galaxy poster from the series, and today we have our look at the first footage with a brief 15-second trailer.

Abrams, Gareth Edwards, Rian Johnson, and Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are all at various stages of their own projects set in a galaxy far, far away and del Toro, speaking strictly as a fan, has expressed his idea for what his movie would be about if given the chance, as he's very specific about the fact this is merely him talking, there's nothing offiicial about this, which, sort of makes it all the more fun. This is not real, this is me as a fat geek just geeking out and talking about it. I would do the sort of Godfather saga that »

It’s an event where strutting down the runway were women wearing a Greek goddess-esque dress version of Groot, an elegant winter coat modeled after the Tardis, and a frock with a skirt shaped and detailed to look like the Death Star, among other high fashion takes on characters beloved by nerdy fans. In its second year at San Diego Comic-Con, the fashion show crowned two winners from the 25 finalists who submitted “geek couture” designs to Her Universe, the sci-fi fashion apparel company behind the event. The judging panel-selected winner was a design called “Joker’s New Look,” designed and modeled by Kelly Cercone.
