Anakin Skywalker is coming to the next big update for Star Wars Battlefront 2 (well, I guess he’s already there, from a certain point of view ...) and the dialogue EA DICE recorded for him includes one of the galaxy’s most groan-worthy lines not involving midichlorians, Jar-Jar Binks or prolonged negatives. That’s right, beginning Feb. 27, Anakin is gonna talk shit about sand in this here game. He will speak that dissonant, overwritten failboat of a line on his Attack of the Clones date with Padmé, which of course ramped up that vulnerable-yet-brooding sex appeal that so many folks didn’t find hot. The line was so putrid, and Hayden Christensen’s acting of it similarly pungent, that it became a meme when people were still figuring out how memes worked. It’s had quite a shelf-life, too. “I don’t like sand, it’s coarse and rough and irritating, and it gets everywhere,” is one of 10 lines for the character in Battlefront 2, … [Read more...] about Yep, Anakin says *that line* in Battlefront 2

Look, I don’t want to get your hopes up or anything (that’s a lie) but it’s probably time that you began preparing for a mind-melting bit of Star Wars news. It’s already been a pretty great week for fans of a Galaxy Far, Far Away with director J.J. Abrams releasing this incredibly heart-wrenching set photo following the final day of filming on the currently untitled Star Wars 9. That’s enough, right? Wrong. Apparently, the staff behind the official UK Star Wars Twitter page has decided that now is the best time to start teasing what it calls, “The calm before the galactic storm…” “This is where the fun begins” the tease continues as it seems to draw a parallel between Harrison Ford's Han Solo and Hayden Christensen's Anakin Skywalker that I'm definitely not okay with. So, what could this mean? Is it out of the realms of possibility that Disney is preparing to drop the first trailer for Episode IX? It’s certainly … [Read more...] about “The calm before the galactic storm…” – Is Disney teasing a huge Star Wars 9 reveal?
EA and DICE are still regularly pumping out content for Star Wars Battlefront II and over the course of the next few months, the multiplayer-centric title is slated to receive some of its m Most notably, a variety of new Hero characters from the prequels (or Clone Wars) era of Star Wars are going to be landing in Battlefront II over the coming months, and fans of a certain TV series might be familiar with their voices.

Sorting the best Star Wars movies from the... not so best(?) isn't as easy as it sounds. Sure, we can probably all agree that the prequels are at the bottom of the list, but in what order? Do you hate The Phantom Menace more or less than Attack of the Clones? It's hard to tell... and then there's the other side of the argument. What's the best Star Wars movie ever? Probably one of the originals, right? But again, which one? And we now have two new high-quality episodic films and a couple of excellent spin-offs to include when ranking the best Star Wars movies as well. (Please stop making great Force films Disney - this list is long enough as it is!) As you can imagine, all this means there were a fair few arguments in the GR office when we came to rank every Star Wars film from worst to best, and it's doubtful you'll agree with the list completely. But if you're new to the Force franchise and looking to start with only the best Star Wars movies, or you want to recap/marathon the … [Read more...] about The best Star Wars movies, ranked from A New Hope to Solo
Remember when there were only three Star Wars movies? No? Well, do you at least remember when there were three good Star Wars movies and then those other ones? Yeah? Ok, good. Believe it or not, there's now nine movies (and counting) from a galaxy far, far away, which means that's far too many to watch in one sitting. If you don't fancy giving up a full weekend to a Star Wars marathon ahead of the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, why not just watch the best Star Wars movies? How do you know which are the best, you ask? Why... with this handy ranked list of course!We've ranked every film from the Force-inspired franchise from worst to best, so you only ever have to watch the best Star Wars movies. (Or, you know, just watch them all and then argue about which you think is best afterwards...) If you're wondering how we came up with the order of this list, just like our best Marvel movies round-up, there was much discussion in the GR office over which were the best Star Wars movies. It … [Read more...] about The best Star Wars movies, ranked from A New Hope to The Last Jedi
