So whose your favorite Star Wars droid? I don't mean C-3PO or R2-D2, or BB-8 or K-2SO. I'd even be a little disappointed if you said Chopper. Those are all fine droids, but there are so many interesting robots lurking around the edges of the Star Wars Galaxy, just waiting to be discovered and appreciated. Two of the very best are BT-1 and Triple Zero, who first appeared in Marvel's Darth Vader comic, by Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca.
star wars celebration
This year’s Star Wars Celebration will take place in Orlando (good news for those of you who couldn’t make it across the pond last year), and as it’s the 40th anniversary of the iconic franchise, you can expect some pretty major things. While we wait to learn more about Lucasfilm’s plans for the 2017 convention, the studio has unveiled a beautiful new poster along with a few details regarding the first panel of the year.
The toy-collecting world may have had its fill of Kylo Ren this past winter when the leader of the Knights of Ren and wannabe Sith Lord was one of the few characters you could find in abundance at retail, but the character is still too important a part of the new Star Wars trilogy to completely ignore. That's why this fall, he'll be returning in the latest Star Wars Black Series wave in an unmasked version that shows Ben Solo as he truly is beneath the helm.
Of course, if you happened to be at Star Wars Celebration Europe or San Diego Comic-Con this year, you had an opportunity to get a hold of this new Kylo Ren early in a deluxe package. The new figure was part of Hasbro's cheeky convention exclusive plan to offer two Bens --- one being the original Jedi Knight, Ben Kenobi, and the other Han and Leia's jerkface son, Ben Solo. Though many Black Series collectors and Star Wars fans likely already have a Kylo Ren on their shelves, this one is actually the best of the bunch so far.
There was a major awakening this past weekend at Star Wars Celebration Europe, which brought fans a handful of new details about ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.’
This fall, Star Wars Rebels returns to the air after one of the most spectacular finales in Star Wars television history. There are a lot of questions hanging in the air about the fates of Ezra, Kanan, Hera, Sabine, Zeb and Chopper, as well as the forces of evil potentially driving them apart, like Darth Maul. We got a sneak peek of the upcoming season at Star Wars Celebration Europe, and it only intensified our desire to learn more about what's in store for our favorite characters.
We caught up with stars Sam Witwer (Darth Maul) and Tiya Sircar (Sabine) after checking out the premiere to talk about the futures of their respective characters, and what it's like having to keep so many secrets for so long.
This past year has been a massive one for Hasbro's Star Wars lines. From the collector favorite Star Wars Black Series to the 3.75" figures and everything in between, you can hardly find a Hasbro aisle anywhere in the country that isn't jammed with figures from a galaxy far, far away. While at Star Wars Celebration Europe this past weekend, we caught up Steve Evans, design director for Hasbro's Star Wars figures, to talk about what's new, what's coming, and how Hasbro plans on keeping the line fresh headed into Rogue One later this year.
We also have some new images of the upcoming Black Series wave, due to arrive later this fall, along with new 3.75" figures and vehicles featuring your favorite Star Wars Rebels characters.
Have you had your fill of Star Wars cosplay yet? Good, because we're back again with another installment of tremendous costuming from the show floor of this year's Star Wars Celebration. Every single day, these committed folks have been putting on a show for more casual con-goers, and being the champs they are, stopping every single time a family, solo attendee or kid asks for a picture. After three days of total, non-stop action, you'd think there was nothing left in the tank for these cosplayers, but Sunday showed these creative attendees had a lot more to offer than we ever expected.
From the original saga, to The Force Awakens, to the animated shows, comics and beyond, these are the best Star Wars cosplays from day three of Star Wars Celebration.
We’ve known for months that Alden Ehrenreich was our new Han Solo, but the closing panel at Star Wars Celebration Europe brought the official announcement, plus a surprise appearance by the actor.
It's been an eventful weekend full of Star Wars news and reveals, but Lucasfilm has saved the biggest surprises for last. Sunday's Future Filmmakers panel closes out the three day-long Star Wars Celebration Europe with big announcements for Episode 8 and the Han Solo spinoff. While the panel won't be live streamed as the Rogue One panel was on Friday, ScreenCrush's Erin Whitney is in London to bring you all the latest updates straight from Celebration.
Regardless of how invested you are in the Star Wars universe, there has been a time in nearly every person's life when they imagined swinging a lightsaber around. The iconic weapon of the Jedi is such a cool piece of technology, it's hard not to want to be able to use one yourself in real life. Though you can buy replicas for fans of any age ranging from simple toys to expensive recreations, at the end of the day, they're just facsimiles. With ILMxLAB's Trials on Tatooine virtual reality experiment, you may only get to hold a HTC Vive controller, but it's undoubtedly a much more authentic lightsaber experience.
We stepped into the world of ILMxLAB's Trials on Tatooine at Star Wars Celebration Europe this weekend, after waiting for many months to finally give it a go. Announced earlier this year, the experiment serves as a tech demo of sorts, letting ILMxLAB and the team at Lucasfilm try out some techniques to see what works and what engages the audience. In it, you're stranded on the home planet of Anakin and Luke Skywalker as a test of sorts for your Jedi training. That means you get a lightsbaber, and with it all the excitement it entails.
