  3. A sneak peek at upcoming Disney+ TV series The Mandalorian will be shown at the Disney D23 Expo, it has been revealed. The presentation on 23 August at will feature appearances from both Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni plus other special guests. Footage from The Mandalorian was previously shown at Star Wars Celebration Chicago earlier this year but was not officially released you the public outside the event. It is expected that this time around the footage will be released, giving many people their first real look at the show, especially as the show is due to premiere with the launch of Disney+ later this year. In other news, Favreau revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that he had already started writing the second series of The Mandalorian, adding that he's "having a blast". The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as the titular bounty hunter, and is set in the period after the classic Star Wars trilogy, and will be released on 12 August 2019 on Disney+.

  6. Stormtrooper themed products and exhibits available at San Diego Comic-Con next week have revealed a new iteration of the ubiquitous Star Wars bad guys. The so-called Sith Trooper will appear in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker this December and sports a bright red hue not too dissimilar to the classic Imperial Royal Guard first seen in Star Wars: Episode IV - Return of the Jedi. It is unknown what role these Sith Troopers will play in the movie, especially since the Sith were destroyed (weren't they?). The reveal comes amidst the inevitable raft of licensed merchandise and exclusives to be found at the premier convention for geeks of all fandoms, and brings with it the announcement of an exclusive exhibit showcasing the evolution of the Stormtrooper. Madlyn Burkert of the Lucasfilm archives, who is co-producing the exhibit at the Lucasfilm Pavillion said "It has some really unique aesthetics to it, and it has some subtle ties to previous stormtrooper designs, which I think fans will enjoy discovering." The new Sith Trooper themed merchandise includes Funko Pop!, Hasbro Black Series, backbacks, exclusive pins, kids customes, and more. Check out the StarWars.com Sith Trooper reveal for a more comprehensive list and pictures.

    What game are you playing right now?

    Dead Rising 2 - it comes off of Game Pass this month, so I wanted to go and get it done.
  8. I'm intrigued, although I wasn't too keen on Raimi's Spider-Man films. Hopefully I get to see it soon.
  9. Spider-Man: Far from Home Raimi fans will love the mid-credits scene. That's all I'll say.
  10. Daisy Ridley has said during an interview with Vulture, that she can't imagine playing Rey again after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. These comments came when Ridley was asked about the possibility of seeing Rey again in one of the movies that Disney and Lucasfilm have mapped out for the next few years. The Rise of Skywalker has a very satisfying conclusion that "feels like an end", according to Ridley, who went on to explain that filmmakers have a lot of other stories to cover. She didn't rule it out, however, so even if we don't see Rey or her costars in the upcoming new trilogy helmed by Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss, she may reappear in the future should the opportunity present itself. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released on 19 December.

    Jedi: Fallen Order

    They're probably just a loud minority. Like the TLJ haters.
  12. Diego Luna, who played rebel spy Cassian Andor in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has hinted that filming on his character's live action Star Wars TV show is due to start filming very soon. During an interview with Mexican news source El Siglo de Torreon, Luna confirmed that he has already received scripts for the series and is expecting filming to start "soon". It was previously reported that filming for this series would be starting in October this year which could still fit within the definition of "soon", but this news could also mean that production is starting earlier than expected. The show is set to be a rousing spy thriller which will fill in new details about Cassian Andor and the rebellion prior to the events of Rogue One, with Stephen Schiff (The Americans) on board as Executive Producer and showrunner. It's expected that the Cassian Andor TV show will release exclusively on the Disney+ streaming service in 2021. Meanwhile, the first Star Wars live action TV show The Mandalorian is currently in production and will release with Disney+ in Novemeber 2019.

    Jedi: Fallen Order

    It'd be such a petty reason to not buy the game, too. Hopefully it does really well, because that could lead to a renaissance for Star Wars games. 🤞
  14. I'm almost finished up with Spider-Man (PS4) now, then I can move on to Red Dead Redemption II. Interspersed with World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, of course.

    Stranger Things

    Haha, yeah he definitely does. Can't wait for the new series, been hooked on this show since I saw the first trailer for it.

    Stranger Things

    We are a week removed from the new season dropping on Netflix. I'm really excited. Poor Will needs to catch a break.
  17. Respawn and EA have released an extended cut of the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay footage. The new video adds extra depth to the gameplay demo, revealing a little more of the story driven aspect of the game as well as showing a few sneaky tidbits that we missed out on the first time around. Jedi: Fallen Order game director Stig Asmussen has responded to criticism that the the gameplay seems to lack depth, saying that the demo footage didn't show the complexity of the combat system as it shows a more focused play-through to better show the narrative and attention to detail that has been put into recreating the Star Wars universe. He also reiterated the game's inspiration from other titles such as Metroid and Castlevania, which wasn't clear from the demo footage either. Check out the extended gameplay footage below: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will be released this November, and is already available to preorder.
  18. I finally pulled out my Sims 3 disc, and got out my Zoo Tycoon 2 one, and have been messing around with that a bit.

    Jedi: Fallen Order

    Haven't played Force Unleashed yet... but I have heard that. And from the bits I have seen. Haha I saw the whining about the dismemberment too. It's kind of ridiculous. They should be happy about the no mictrotransactions and no loot boxes bit.
  20. Andy

    Jedi: Fallen Order

    Yeah, I do get a bit of a Force Unleashed vibe, but I'm not complaining. People are still moaning about the lack of limb dismemberment. I don't see the big deal - the environments shown so far looks the part to me, so if the gameplay is enjoyable and the story is engaging, then dismemberment is just a little extra flavouring that I'm not going to miss. The way people go on about though you'd think that Star Wars was just arms and legs flying off all over the place. 🙄

    The Inebriation Station

    Oh, that's good that she's been able to go home... Being stuck in hospital can be quite demoralising on it's own.
  22. I love Cities: Skylines, but it runs crap on my PC so I tend to watch other people's YouTube videos about it instead.
  23. Lucasfilm has appointed Michelle Rejwan to the post of Senior Vice President of Live Action Development & Production, to oversee the future ofof Star Wars live action TV and film projects. Rejwan has worked with JJ Abrams on Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the upcoming final installment of the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Her other film credits with Abrams include Star Trek Into Darkness and Super 8. The Mandalorian and the untitled Cassian Andor series are currently under production for Disney+, and more Star Wars films are in the pipeline, so Rejwan will undoubtedly have input into these projects as she undertakes her new role within Lucasfilm.

    The Entertainment Challenge 2019

    Thanks to Game Pass, I'm probably going to complete my video game goal for the first time ever.

    Jedi: Fallen Order

    Anyone else get a bit of a Force Unleashed feel?

    The Inebriation Station

    Thanks. She got to go home and is eating a lot better.
