In Star Wars Episode 2, Anakin Skywalker makes it clear to poor Padmé that he really doesn't like sand, in one breath crushing the fledgling couple's dreams of sunny holidays on sandy beaches.And so it's only right that Anakin Skywalker's upcoming incarnation in Star Wars: Battlefront 2 also doesn't like sand. I mean, it's hard to change your mind about something like sand, even over the coarse of 15 years. In a post on the Battlefront forums, developer DICE went into detail about the arrival of the Chosen One in Battlefront 2, going over his various abilities and playstyle (as he takes and does damage his fury grows, which sounds about right).DICE also reveals Anakin Skywalker's various voice lines in the game. He's got some classics in there, for example:(To Grievous) What's the matter? Someone forget to change your battery?(Obi-Wan and Anakin)[O] Why do I get the feeling you're going to be the death of me?[A] Don't say that, Master.(Dooku and Anakin)[D] Brave of you, boy. … [Read more...] about In Star Wars: Battlefront 2, Anakin Skywalker still doesn’t like sand

A Star Wars live-action TV show has been hovering around fans’ wishlists for decades, and now it’s actually happening. Set in the era between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens – a period largely untouched by existing Star Wars movies, TV, books, and comics – Star Wars: The Mandalorian features a lone gunfighter, who just happens to have taken style tips from the most famous, infamous bounty hunter of them all, a certain Boba Fett. And The Mandalorian TV show cast will reportedly be led by Game of Thrones’ Pedro Pascal (AKA Oberyn Martell, AKA the Red Viper) as the man in the suit, which gives the series serious star power.Far from the lawmakers of the New Republic, Star Wars: The Mandalorian is set on a Wild West-style frontier, light years from civilization. For fans of the original trilogy yearning for the criminal underworld of the Mos Eisley Cantina and Jabba’s Palace – the sort of space western where smugglers shoot first, and good … [Read more...] about Star Wars: The Mandalorian TV show casts Game of Thrones’ Pedro Pascal
Fantasy Flight Games have a long history with tabletop gaming in the Star Wars IP. They already have every other type of tabletop gaming covered with card games; dice games; role-playing games; X-Wing; which allows you to re-enact the space skirmish warfare that Star Wars is famous for; Armada, which took those space battles to a bigger scale and allowed you to play out entire fleet battles; and Imperial Assault, which combined a board game with roleplaying game elements and allowed to you fight small skirmish missions on the tabletop. With Star Wars Legion, Fantasy Flight Games are moving Star Wars fully into the wargaming hobby genre. There are several different groups of people that are going to be interested in this product, each for their own reasons, but we’re going to look at this product in three areas: The hobby side (the models themselves) As a stand-alone core box product (for those who want to dip in but not commit long term) The wargaming side (how the product … [Read more...] about Star Wars Legion Core Set Review – Pick Dark or Light and Go to War!
We were given a rough idea of where Solo: A Star Wars Story falls on the timeline when the film was first announced, but new details get a little more specific. Del Rey Books, the official publisher of Star Wars novels, printed a nifty timeline for all of the novelizations that have come out thus far. When the timeline is combined with the canonical events that take place in the Star Wars universe, it gets remarkably easier to try and place Solo, the next movie in the expansive franchise. The events of Solo take place before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Star Wars Rebels, the highly acclaimed animated series that’s in its fourth season, as pointed out by The Hollywood Reporter. That also means Solo takes place after Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, and just after the Empire’s rise. This is where Del Rey’s handy-dandy timeline comes into play. Star Wars: Tarkin and Star Wars: A New Dawn (a prequel to Rebels that takes place six years before the … [Read more...] about Where does Solo: A Star Wars Story exist on the Star Wars timeline?
The Force Awakens wasn't the first attempt to continue the story of the Skywalker family. The original Star Wars sequel trilogy actually launched way back in 1991, although you'd be forgiven for missing it--after all, it debuted in bookstores, not the local theater.Now that The Last Jedi has split the Star Wars community in two, some fans have proposed that Disney should have brought author Timothy Zahn's Thrawn books--the original Star Wars sequel trilogy--to the big screen instead of introducing viewers to Rey, Finn, Poe and the rest. But those books are decades old. Would they really be better than Lucasfilms' newest efforts? And what makes them so popular, anyway?It's all a matter of timing.Reanimating a dead universeIt's hard to imagine these days, when every year brings a new Star Wars movie and a truckload of spin-off media, but in the early '90s Star Wars was effectively dead. In the '80s, Lucasfilm had tried to keep the franchise alive with animated series like Droids and … [Read more...] about The Star Wars Books Fans Wish Disney Had Done Instead Of The Last Jedi
