Star Wars

Released on November 1, 1991 by LucasArts

Developed by LucasArts

Nineteen years after the formation of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke's Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire. Although Obi-Wan sacrifices himself in a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader, his former apprentice, Luke proves that the Force is with him by destroying the Empire's dreaded Death Star.

At this years Disney D23 Expo Star Wars fans were treated to a special D23 panel on Rise of Skywalker along with a new trailer that just dropped. The trailer features a look back at all the Skywalker saga Star Wars films and some all new Rise of Skywalker footage. I urge you to watch it now because in the paragraph i'll be talking trailer spoilers.

Looks like Rey is featured heavily in this trailer and she looks to be a lightsaber wielding badass. Also. The Emperor has some new voice work and what sounds like a taste of Darth Vaders iconic breathing sound. The end of the trailer has had fans guessing what it means as Rey snaps a double-bladed red lightsaber out and... Read All


The trailer for the new Star Wars live action show The Mandelorian dropped and it looks better than I imagined. The Mandelorian picks up after the events of Return of the Jedi and if the impaled helmets of Imperial Storm Troopers are an indication, it doesn't look like where the show takes place in is big a fan of the Empire. Disney has been pretty mum about what the show is about and the Mandelorian himself but it seems that he might have a connection to Jango and Boba Fett as the official description mentions them by name.

Tie this up with the news that Ewan McGregor is coming back to play Obi-Wan in another show for Disney+. It seems much of the plans Lucasfilm had... Read All


Star Wars Celebration is upon us and during the Episode IX panel Lucasfilm unveiled the new teaser for Star Wars Episode IX titled "Rise of Skywalker." One of my friends is waiting to watch the teaser until we see Endgame in the theater so I'm not going to spoil any of the teaser details in this post but we can in the comments.

After this teaser I'm more excited for The Rise of Skywalker than Endgame or any other movie this year. It's the end of the Skywalker Saga but not quite end of the Star Wars franchise. I've heard news from Lucasfilm and Disney that after this movie they are going to take a break from making films and focus on TV shows on the new Disney+... Read All


Some big Star Wars Episode IX news dropped today that I wanted to share with you all. Not only is Luke Skywalker coming back for Episode IX but so will the entire principal cast of the The Last Jedi including Lando Calrissian! Wasn't sure if they'd bring Lando back but it was confirmed along with some awesome news on how they plan on including Carrie Fisher from the director of Episode IX J.J. Abrams:

"Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie's legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX... Read All


In this episode of Cheerful Ghost Radio we’re going to bring you the second and most important part of our two part Solo: A Star Wars Story Review. Tim couldn't make it for the last review, so we get his thoughts on Solo and some comments about what we said in the last episode.

We also talk about the future Star Wars movies we may see, and how Solo's somewhat limited box office take might mean for those.


I shared this video in a comment thread recently but it's so good I wanted to share it properly in a post. It's a recent video by Pattrick Willems where he dives in to what people want out of a Star Wars movie and takes a look at The Last Jedi. It's a really interesting breakdown and I think his base premise for why The Last Jedi was divisive with some fans is spot on.


Lucasfilm released a new Solo: A Star Wars Story trailer yesterday to a warm reception. I’d say compared to the first Super Bowl trailer this one seems more like the kind of movie I expected. Still going to watch this opening day and it looks like all the hard work to fix the movie after the original directors left the project has paid off, with a great trailer.

I know many were hazy on watching this, I wonder if this trailer has changed you mind in any direction?


Culturally Star Wars is a big deal and maybe the biggest deal in all of cinema. Mikey Neumann, a former writer at Gearbox that wrote Borderlands, recently went full time with his YouTube channel Movies with Mikey. It's a great YouTube movie review channel and well worth a subscription and his latest two episodes are about How We See Star Wars. Mikey breaks down each Star Wars movie starting with the original trilogy and how they were reviewed when they came out. Spoiler Alert, people didn't seem to like the Empire Strikes Back at first but later went on to think it was the best movie of the series. If you are looking to tear into some fun Star Wars commentary hit up... Read All


I liked Star Wars: The Last Jedi a lot and will be heading to the store when it gets a physical Blu-ray release to pick it up on release day. If you were wondering when all that was coming out and wanted to plan your move to own it, i'm going to break it all down in this post to help make your choice a bit easier. And if you hated the movie, and apparently some people did, then doing nothing is even easier than that.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be available on Digital & Movies Anywhere March 13th and on 4K & Blu-ray March 27th. With that, if you want to own it digitally i'm not sure why you just wouldn't buy it on Blu-ray and redeem the digital code for the... Read All


Yesterday during the Super Bowl we got a teaser for the new Han Solo movie trailer and today we got the full meal deal.

The movie looks to be very well pretty and I really dug the new droids and some of the shots looked very stunning. I'll put more of my thoughts below in the comments and i'm also curious what you think of Solo from the trailer. Solo is coming out May 25th and if history is a guide i'll be watching it that opening night.

You can also watch the TOTALLY DIFFERENT trailer TEASER that played during the Super Bowl linked below. It shows a few different scenes and it is more of an actual teaser.
