Emilia Clarke Shares a Video of Chewbacca From the ‘Han Solo’ Set

It’s a big deal when you pass a follower milestone on social media. You feel like, finally, you’re being HEARD, you’re being SEEN, and, naturally, it warrants some kind of celebratory post to commemorate the day. But not all of us can celebrate with Chewbacca, the Chewbacca, by our side. Fortunately for Emilia Clarke, she can.

Take a Virtual Tour of Disney’s Star Wars Theme Park, Galaxy’s Edge

They already unveiled the massive model of the Star Wars Land coming soon to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, but today at Disney’s D23 convention, the Mouse House gave even more details about this expansion, coming some time in 2019. Most importantly, they gave the thing a name: Henceforth, it is officially called Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. (The name covers both the Disneyland and Disney World versions.) You will be forgiven if you continue to call it Star Wars Land.

The Ultimate Star Wars Hotel Is Coming to Walt Disney World

It sounds like science-fiction. In a way, I suppose it still is. But it’s about to become real: A “100 percent immersive” Star Wars hotel. It’s coming in the near future (not a long time ago in this case) to Walt Disney World.

Mark Hamill Really Hates One ‘Star Wars’ Toy in Particular

When you’re part of a giant franchise, there are going to be toys of you. That’s just how these things tend to work. Star Wars is in a realm all of its own, with toys ranging from giant Star Destroyer LEGO sets to Elan Sleazebaggano action figures, and, naturally, the stars of the franchise have their favorites and least-favorites. Mark Hamill recently shared his opinion on what he thinks is the worst Luke Skywalker toy, and it’s quite a doozy.

How ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Trailer Would Have Looked in 1983

When he was still in charge of Lucasfilm, George Lucas liked to say that Star Wars was like poetry; it rhymed, in a cycle of repetition. There was Return of the Jedi, and then many years later (or some years before, depending on how you look at things) there was Revenge of the Sith...

Adam Scott Meets His Idol Mark Hamill and There Has Never Been a Sweeter Moment on the Internet

I have interviewed a lot of actors and directors. When I tell people I interviewed someone famous, their first question is always the same: “Were they nice?” It’s usually hard to say; you don’t get much time with these filmmakers and they’re typically on their best behavior because they want you to write nice things about them. Interviewing a director is like being on a reality show: I’m not there to make friends.

‘Star Wars’ Characters Singing Smash Mouth’s ‘All Star’ Is Downright Delightful

Star Wars Day always brings us new ways to appreciate the galaxy far, far away. This year we got a gift from some clever editors at ‘The Tonight Show,’ who managed to string together clips from all eight Star Wars movies (‘Rogue One’ included) to re-create the first verse of Smash Mouth’s “All Star.” If that sounds like it shouldn’t work at all, we agree.

But it does.

Carrie Fisher Will Not Appear in ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

While fans from around the world have gathered to share their love of Star Wars at this year’s Star Wars Celebration, there has been one sobering element to the festivities. The loss of Carrie Fisher has been felt at every level of the convention, from Thursday’s bittersweet memorial video put together by Lucasfilm to the sadness felt while Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson shared his behind-the-scenes footage from the set. And since this is a convention of all things Star Wars, fans have also speculated about the role the actress might play in the next film. Is there a place for Fisher in Star Wars: Episode 9?

Everything That Happened at the Star Wars Celebration ‘Last Jedi’ Panel

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters in just about eight months, and we still haven’t gotten a trailer for the eighth movie in the saga from a galaxy far, far away. Presumably, that all changes today at Star Wars Celebration, where The Last Jedi will be teased with a gala panel full of guests, surprises, and (we assume [we hope (we pray)]) some footage.
