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. Every year since 2011 the day has grown in popularity among fans and retail outlets that have Star Wars merchandise. Below are how some different outlets are celebrating Star Wars Day.

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.
Are you disappointed that Star Wars Rebels is coming to a close with season four, or is it the »

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 […]

Are you disappointed we didn’t get to see this showdown playing out in The Clone Wars? Would you like to see Cad Bane making a return to the galaxy far, far away? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…

When it comes to the Mon Calamari, sure, Admiral Raddus is cool. But he's no Admiral Ackbar. First introduced in Return of the Jedi, Ackbar has only ever since returned to the big screen in The Force Awakens. Many fans expected the orange Rebel warrior hailing from Mon Cala to also make an appearance in Rogue One. But, alas, he was nowhere to be seen, despite him being a part of the Rebellion at this time. Which we know from his appearance in Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series. So, where was he?
Rogue One writer Gary Whitta recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about all the material that didn't make it into the final movie. And one of those things was Admiral Ackbar. He had a role in Rogue One during the initial screenwriting phase. But his part was replaced by that cool blue Mon Calamria we've come to »
Darth Maul was introduced way back in 1999’s Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, but since being killed by Obi-Wan Kenobi, the character has been brought back to the land of the living for both Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
In next week’s episode of the Disney Xd series, Maul will receive a long overdue rematch with Obi-Wan, but that very nearly never happened. In a new interview, Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni revealed that the iconic villain was going to be immediately killed off by Darth Vader upon his return in season 2.
“Originally, Maul perished in the season two finale where he returned. It was a one-off appearance. So originally in that episode you were gonna get Vader fighting Maul, Vader would have killed Maul, and then fought Ahsoka.”
That would have shaken Star Wars Rebels up in a big way, especially as Darth »

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. »
