NEW STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI BEHIND-THE-SCENES FOOTAGE REVEALED AND MORE

Star Wars: The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson made a special appearance today at D23, bringing some friends and a few surprises. Here are some of the highlights. 1. That sizzle.
Johnson debuted new behind-the-scenes footage in a thrilling sizzle reel, offering us even more of a glimpse into the film. It features new shots of the Millennium Falcon, Rey, Luke, never-before-seen practical-effects creatures, Captain Phasma, Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley training for fight scenes, and much more. “I’m hoping it’ll be a little shocking,” Johnson says in the video, “but I’m hoping it’ll feel real and honest.” But it’s Carrie Fisher who gets the last word. “It’s about family. And that’s what’s so powerful about it.”  SWTOR CREDITS
2. “I had the time of my life making this movie.”
The “Jedi Master” of the film, as Walt Disney Studios chariman Alan Horn called Johnson in his introduction, spoke openly about how much he enjoyed making The Last Jedi, which is now in postproduction. “I had …

5 HIGHLIGHTS FROM STAR WARS FORCES OF DESTINY: “THE PADAWAN PATH”

Ahsoka Tano’s fate in Star Wars Rebels may still be up for debate and interpretation, but on Thursday we got a glimpse at the fan-favorite Padawan’s further adventures before she left the Jedi order. In the fourth episode of Star Wars Forces of Destiny, the micro-series deviated from its previous course, with installments that up until now were plucked from the franchise films, to focus on the small-screen heroine. Running late for her own ceremony at the Jedi Temple, Ahsoka must take a detour of her own to help some hapless citizens with a malfunctioning, massive droid on the loose. Can she do it? (Spoiler alert — She can do anything.)  SWTOR CREDITS
Here are five highlights from the short, “The Padawan Path” — which you can watch below!

1. Snips and SkyGuy, together again.
Voice actor Ashley Eckstein hinted at the reunion of master and learner when she tweeted a photo of herself and the man behind animated Anakin’s swagger, Matt Lanter, in the recording studio together last month. …

5 REASONS YOU NEED TO WATCH LEGO STAR WARS: THE FREEMAKER ADVENTURES

Following the events of season one, the Freemaker family has joined forces with the Rebel Alliance. They’re putting their resourcefulness to the test and helping the Rebellion find parts and keep ships in tip-top condition — it’s what they do best. But they wouldn’t be Kordi, Zander, and Rowan if they didn’t stumble upon other adventures in between reassembling X-wings.
If you haven’t been watching the Disney XD series, you have time to catch up before the show returns with season two on Monday, July 31. Why should you make this your summer mission? Here are five reasons to tune into LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures.  SWTOR CRETIS


1. A brick apart.
LEGO and Star Wars have played hand-in-hand before with TV specials and shorts, but The Freemaker Adventures is something different. It’s a serialized story, unfolding over multiple episodes. Rather than revisiting an established tale, the animated series delves into fresh territory that brushes up against touchstones in the Star W…

NEW LEGO STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI IMAGES SHOW MINIFIGS, INCLUDING FINN!

Three new images of LEGO Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi show minifigs of three characters, giving us our first look at what Finn will look like as a LEGO the second time around. SWTOR CREDITS  As some of you already know, we got a closer look at BB-9E not that long ago from r/LEGOLeaks.
More recently, three more images showing off the minifigs for The Last Jedi‘s new characters made their way online. One is a generic First Order officer (alongside a slightly clearer look at BB-9E), but the more interesting images that leaked are the ones of Snoke and Finn. SWTOR CREDITS 
Finn, as usual, is out of breath. (I’m guessing that he comes with a second face if you flip his head around.) Snoke, in the meantime, looks a lot better as a minifig than I initially thought he would. The design here is a significant improvement over the minifig design they had for the character in the LEGO Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens game (which, up until now, was the only place you could see Sno…

5 HIGHLIGHTS FROM LEGOLAND CALIFORNIA’S LEGO STAR WARS DAYS 2017

With Star Wars Celebration this past April, and the 40th anniversary celebrations of A New Hope in May, some might think the Star Wars party has wrapped up — but LEGOLAND California kept the celebration going into June with their annual LEGO Star Wars Days. This weekend festival of the Force brought out tons of fans to the theme park in Carlsbad over June 3 and 4, 2017, with a whole Star Destroyer-load of fun events.   SWTOR CREDITS

The area surrounding LEGO Star Wars Miniland turned into a festive hive of fun and activity with costume, trivia, and speed building contests, scavenger hunts and droid hunts, costumed-character meet and greets, as well as a display area of fan-made LEGO models and artwork. But the Star Wars party didn’t stop in Miniland — in addition to more costumed-character photo ops in the entry plaza, including a Death Star corridor backdrop, the Show Place Theater showed LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales, and on Saturday, held Q&A sessions after each episode with the…

WHAT IS THE EMPIRE’S GREATEST MOMENT?

One of the great things about Star Wars is that it inspires endless debates and opinions on a wide array of topics. Best bounty hunter? Most powerful Jedi? Does Salacious Crumb have the best haircut in the saga? In that spirit, StarWars.com presents From a Certain Point of View: a series of point-counterpoints on some of the biggest — and most fun — Star Wars issues. In this installment, two StarWars.com writers discuss which single moment was the Empire’s finest.  SWTOR CREDITS

The destruction of Jedha City is the Empire’s greatest moment, says Justin.
“Power! Unlimited power!” It’s not pride. It’s a promise. Palpatine’s declaration to Mace Windu as he pummels the Jedi Master with Force lightning is a preview to his former “colleague” of the galaxy that is to come under his enlightened rule. A galaxy in which no challenge is too great, no decision is questioned, and no force opposes his will.
And make no mistake, the Empire is Palpatine’s will. Its capabilities are the personificati…

SWTOR: Central Story Line

Kind time of the day, ladies and gentlemen, fans of the online project Star Wars: The Old Republic. I want to say a few words about the central story line in SW:TOR. SWTOR CREDITS


The central storyline is tied to the hero's class. From the very beginning and up to the final fiftieth level, this story draws the hero behind him. But the whole dramatic art in the form of "string - culmination - the denouement" do not wait. The situation in the galaxy is heating up, Republicans with the Imperials are approaching the war, but before the finals are still very far away. Regular updates open up new horizons for us. So, there is no limits for the story exploration, and it is really cool! SWTOR CREDITS
