Ewan McGregor Explains Why He Nearly Turned Down ‘Star Wars’

Over the past few years, there has been a small but noticeable attempt to rehabilitate the image of the Star Wars prequels in popular culture. Last November, for example, the A.V. Club published an article on why the Star Wars prequels don’t deserve our hatred. Similar pieces have been published in The Mary Sue, USA Today, and many other websites and online publications. It just goes to show that there is a lid for every pot, no matter how misshapen that pot may be.

Hope Is Still Alive in This New ‘Rogue One’ TV Spot

We’re just about a month away from Disney’s biggest gamble on the Star Wars universe. While odds are good that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will do well at the box office  —  projects this big rarely fail to find their audience  —  there must be a little anxiety in the hearts of Star Wars fans and Disney executives alike. The studio has made some pretty big financial investments in their upcoming slate of standalone Star Wars stories; if Rogue One disappoints in its opening weekend, it could be seen as a shot across the bow of Disney’s future slate.

Rey and BB-8 Aren’t Just Best Friends, They’re the Best Hot Toys Star Wars Figures Yet [Review]

After years of holding a number of licenses for various pop culture icons, it seems almost unbelievable that until 2015, Hot Toys didn't have a deal for Star Wars toys. It took the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the Hong Kong company to finally step into the crowded licensing world of Lucasfilm's flagship franchise. In a way, it's a good thing it took such a long time. The license arrived right in that sweet spot of Hot Toys' expertise finally reaching its apex, rather than a decade earlier when the products weren't quite as impressive.

No product better serves that idea than the newly released Star Wars: The Force Awakens Rey and BB-8 set. As thrilling as it has been to see a number of iconic characters like Leia Organa, Han Solo and the numerous Stormtroopers captured with Hot Toys' impeccable eye for detail, the Rey figure is just a marvelous achievement in an action figure from head to toe. Would that all Hot Toys figures could be so great.

‘Rogue One’ Gets a Rumored Runtime

Sometimes I feel sorry for studio executives. You put so much time and money into making sure you run a tight ship  —  absolutely no leaks, meaning that you get to dictate when and where details about your new film are released to the public  —  and then one of your corporate partners accidentally posts a key plot point or a character photo on their website earlier than you intended, and all that hard work has been wiped away. It’s tough work keeping Hollywood’s secrets, especially for a movie as big as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Star on Rey’s Parents: ‘We Will See in a Year’

While Star Wars: The Force Awakens left us with plenty of unanswered questions, perhaps no question looms as big over the franchise as the lineage of Daisy Ridley’s Rey. Ever since the film was released, fan theories have run wild with the questions of why Rey was abandoned by her parents and how she may have come by her force sensitivity. Is she the daughter of Obi-Wan Kenobi? Is she the daughter of Luke Skywalker? What is the significance of that flashback sequence? Inquiring minds want to know.
