Fandom News

  • Here’s the latest episodes of The Star Wars Show

  • …and The Star Wars After Show.

Movie & Television News

  • New Rogue One poster from Russia.


  • The latest episode of Rebels Reactions is out, plus the episode guide for “The Holocrons of Fate.”

  • As for movie trailers, November 11 seems like an odd time for a horror movie, but The Monster looks pretty creepy.

I’m not sure about this one. It looks cheesy, but it might be fun. Officer Downe comes out November 18th.

  • Natalie Portman returns to the big screen in Jackie which will be out December 2nd. This one certainly has potential.

Toy & Collectible News

  • Pre-orders are up for Hot Toys sixth scale Finn in Stormtrooper armor.
  • If you’re looking for something strange and vaguely Star Wars, pre-orders are up for the 3Art Exiles and Devils Set.
