Over the last few days, Star Wars fans have been treated to new photos and magazine covers featuring the characters from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and LucasFilm also announced a global promotional campaign in anticipation for this spin-off. Earlier today, director Gareth Edwards even offered new details about the title itself, but now we have even more merchandise to unveil, including new 3D glasses to choose from when this movie hits theaters on December 16.
TheForce.net unveiled the first images of new Stormtrooper and Death Trooper 3D glasses, which were created by Look 3D. These glasses will be priced in the $10 to $15 range, but it isn't known when they will be available for purchase. Fans will also get to learn more about a few of these Rebel characters in a trio of new books, slated to debut in 2017 from Edelweiss.

Last week, Empire Magazine revealed two new covers for their upcoming print issue featuring characters from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The first cover showed Jyn Erso and her team of Rebels, while the second offered a closer look at the main villain, Ben Mendelsohn's Director Orson Krennic. The publication promised a new subscribers' cover debuting on Monday, and, true to their word, that image has been revealed, featuring none other than the new droid, K-2So.
K-2So was actually featured on the first Empire magazine cover, seen towering over Jyn Erso and the rest of her Rebel team, but this image gives us a much closer look at this "military enforcer droid," which is voiced and performed in motion capture by Alan Tudyk. This subscribers cover is designed as a "technical drawing" for K-2So, and at the bottom it says this is a "Classified Document" of the Imperial Army. »
Yesterday, Empire Magazine revealed some of the Star Wars Rebels from the upcoming spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on the cover of their upcoming issue. The publication also teased that a second cover image would debut today, with a third arriving on Monday. True to their word, Empire has unveiled a new cover, featuring Ben Mendelsohn's Director Orson Krennic along with some of his Deathtroopers.
It isn't known who will be featured on the third Empire cover, but we'll bring you that image as soon as it surfaces. We first learned about Director Krennic a few months ago, through a preview of LucasFilm's official companion book to the movie. This book revealed that Krennic serves as the military director of the Empire, to defend the Galactic Empire against the Rebels mission to steal the Death Star plans.

Last week, during NBC's Olympic coverage, Lucasfilm debuted a new trailer for the highly-anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first Star Wars spin-off that is set to hit theaters nationwide December 16. With just under four months left until this new story set in a galaxy far, far away hits theaters, it remains to be seen how much more footage will be unveiled, but today we have the latest Empire Magazine cover. This image features four of the spin-off's human stars, plus the latest lovable droid in the Star Wars Universe.
This Empire cover features a closer look at Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), Bodhi Rook (Riz Ahmed), Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), Baze Malbus (Wiang Jen) and Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen). The cover also features another look at the droid K-2So, voiced and performed through motion capture by Alan Tudyk. This cover image also puts into perspective just how »
“What will you do when they catch you? What will do if they break you? If you continue to fight, what will you become?” These are the questions asked by Saw Gerrera (Forest Whitaker) in the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. But unlike other new faces appearing in the next installment of the Star Wars universe — set before the events of A New Hope — we know Gerrera’s history. We know he’s not asking hypothetical questions to scare and prepare Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) for her dangerous mission. Saw Gerrera has already lived through one rebellion and audiences got to watch how it transformed him in the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars. This makes Saw the first character from the new extended universe to make the hop to the live-action films. But it also means we can look back and find clues to Rogue »

Having a luck dragon with you is the only way to go on a quest, and it’s apparently the way to win the fan award at a geek couture fashion show. A dress inspired by NeverEnding Story’s Falkor graced the runway at The Her Universe Fashion Show last month. Falkor was crowed the third winner for Her Universe’s 2016 show this afternoon, following the announcement of the other two winners at Comic-Con directly after the show. In the fashion show’s first two years, two designers walked home winners, one chosen by the judges, one chosen by the audience. This year, with all the geeky, glitzy runway walks airing on new VOD network Comic-Con HQ, a third winner was declared, chosen by fans watching the show at home. The Falkor dress was designed by Jesse Thaxton, pictured below with her model. Thaxton, along with her two fellow winners, »

Ever since the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit the web back in April, fans have been dying for more information and for more footage from the upcoming Star Wars spinoff. At the time, it was unclear exactly when that footage was going to arrive, but Disney and Lucasfilm have come through for fans, as the brand new trailer for the movie has surfaced. The trailer made its debut during the Olympics, which was promised earlier in the week via a TV spot, and it finally revealed the new look at a galaxy far far away that we have all been dying to see.
Fans were very disappointed that Disney and Lucasfilm decided not to deliver a new trailer for Rogue One during Star Wars Celebration, especially considering that the release of the movie is only four short months away. Luckily, via a TV spot during »
The wait for the next Disney produced Star Wars movie is getting shorter and shorter, and now we have a brand new look at the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Disney and Lucasfilm decided to drop the new trailer for the Star Wars spinoff movie after a very long wait that had many fans feeling quite restless. But the wait was worth it, as this trailer delivered in a big way. The featurette that they released last month at Star Wars Celebration may have been cool, but this absolutely takes the cake.
Prior to the release of this latest trailer for Rogue One, Lucasfilm finally revealed a lot of character details for the movie via Entertainment Weekly, which confirmed not only the names and descriptions for many of the characters in the movie, but also that Darth Vader would indeed be featured in Rogue One, which had been rumored for quite some time. »
While we patiently (not so much) await tonight's new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer, why not dive in and examine one of the interesting new characters found in Gareth Edwards' upcoming film. Although Saw Gerrera isn't exactly a brand new character, having appeared on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, enough time has passed since his introduction to present him in a new light.... Read More »

Ahead of the movie’s release on DVD and Digital later this month, a new featurette for Ratchet & Clank has been revealed, which sees director Kevin Munroe and voice cast members James Arnold Taylor and Bella Thorne discuss the film’s video game origins. It includes clips from both the film and the game, and should interest fans of the franchise, which has seen a massive rise in popularity thanks to Insomniac’s recent PS4 reboot [read our review here].
The featurette, named “Leveling Up”, can be seen below…
Based on the legendary gaming franchise, Ratchet & Clank follows Ratchet, a foolhardy Lombax and the last of his kind, who grows up all alone, desperate to make something of himself in the universe. Upon meeting Clank, a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn, the pair decides to band together and lead the quest to stop the evil alien, Chairman Drek, who has designs on »

This weekend, during NBC's Olympic coverage, the network debuted a brief teaser for Disney's highly-anticipated Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which revealed that the full trailer will debut Thursday, August 11 during the Olympics. While we still have two days to wait until this trailer arrives, Disney is giving fans another sneak peek with a 15-second "story teaser" that gives us a new look at some of the main characters. While we don't see much, this video gives us new glimpses at Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), Chirrut Imwe (Donnie Yen), Baze Malbus (Wen Jiang) and Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), along with the new U-Wing ship and new droid K-2So, played by Alan Tudyk.
We learned yesterday that one of the new planets in Rogue One is a Jedi holy land dubbed Jedha. Director Gareth Edwards explained that this planet is where people who believe in The Force go on pilgrimage. »
We've been so focused on whether or not some other Star Wars prequel actors would make a return to the franchise in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story or the new trilogy we never even considered this character would come back. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story spoilers? I guess? If you were trying to go in fresh. The prequel actor returning is none other than Jimmy Smits, a.k.a. Princess Leia's adoptive father Bail Organa! Visiting The Talk recently, the actor confirmed his involvement in the Gareth Edwards film but tried to keep fan expectations low. "No! No!" he first tried to reply when asked about it. “People got nothing better to do then to look at these little things? There’s stuff going on in the world!” He finally added, “Can you say the word ‘cameo’? Can you say the words ‘small part’?” Apparently Smits was already »

The Star Wars universe could soon be flying in to ABC. At the Television Critics Association press tour, ABC head Channing Dungey indicated there have been talks to bring in a project from their sister company, Lucasfilm, the originator of the Star Wars franchise. “We have had conversations with [Lucasfilm] and we will continue to have conversations with them. I think it would be wonderful if we could find a way to extend that brand onto our programming,” Dungey said, this according to Variety. “It’s all a little bit hush-hush. That company exists under a big shroud of secrecy,” Dungey added. “[Talks] are ongoing. We don’t really have an official timeline yet.” When it comes to bringing projects from the Star Wars world to TV, Lucasfilm hasn’t been shy, but so far it’s been children’s programming like Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

It feels like we are still calming down to some degree from the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens last December. But in just four short months, Disney and Lucasfilm will be giving us another, brand new Star Wars movie in the form of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. We have still only seen one trailer for the movie, but today the first official TV spot for Rogue One has surfaced.
There really isn't any new footage in this 30-second TV spot to speak of. For the most part, it is a very condensed version of the first Teaser that was released for Rogue One back in April. On the plus side, this does mean that Lucasfilm is ramping up their marketing campaign for the movie and that we will likely be seeing some new footage for the movie soon. We know Darth Vader is in this movie, »
Warning: Spoilers All The Way Through The Season Two Finale Of Star Wars Rebels Inside! When Ahsoka Tano first appeared in the animated film Star Wars: The Clone Wars, very few people would’ve believed this annoying child would eventually become one of the most complex, interesting characters in the Star Wars universe. Assigned to Anakin Skywalker as his Padawan, Ahsoka was just another bratty teenager in a galaxy full of whiny youths. But as The Clone Wars animated film fed into The Clones Wars cartoon, something wonderful happened: character growth. Over the course of five seasons, fans watched as Anakin and Ahsoka grew up together. Ahsoka became an important foil for Anakin, helping him mature from Obi-Wan’s moody apprentice into the best general in the Jedi Army, albeit a Jedi still ruled by his emotions. It was Anakin’s knee-jerk reactions to both battle situations and Jedi Council »

There is a select but growing group of actors who have been in projects from both of the major comic book companies, Marvel and DC. Community alum Danny Pudi and Matt Lanter (90210, Heroes) are both in this club, and we chatted with both of them at San Diego Comic-Con. Pudi scored a small part in Captain America: The Winter Soldier thanks to his connection with the Russo brothers, who directed the 2014 Marvel movie and produced several seasons of Community. He’s now in new workplace comedy/superhero series Powerless, which will premiere on NBC mid-season. The series is about insurance adjusters specializing in regular-people coverage against damage caused by crime-fighting superheroes. Pudi talks about his character Teddy and makes a funny observation about how superheroes and us regular folk are different in the video interview below: Lanter, meanwhile, has supplied his voice to a few Marvel animated TV and video game projects, »
