    Fans campaign for a Solo sequel

    Last year's Solo: A Star Wars Story may not have taken the box office by storm, and it's (relatively) poor performance undermined Disney and Lucasfilm's plans to release a new Star Wars film each year, but that hasn't stopped support for a Solo sequel from growing. Fans have been using the hashtag #MakeSolo2Happen to show their support for a follow up to the Ron Howard spin-off featuring Alden Ehrenreich as the eponymous scoundrel Han Solo. The film certainly left enough roots from which a sequel could grow, with Emilia Clarke's Qi'ra heading off to do Maul's dirty work as part of his Crimson Dawn crime syndicate. While Solo's performance may have scuppered any chance of a big screen sequel, the campaign did manage to get the attention of Solo's director who appeared to give the campaign his seal of approval. Howard has previously stated his disappointment in the movie's performance, but most experts point the blame at it's closeness to the release date of The Last Jedi which did not give the marketing campaign much time to build up hype for the spin-off. While it seems unlikely that a sequel will materialise, here in the Star Wars fandom we have grown accustomed to "never say never", and after all Alden Ehrenreich did sign on for more than one film, and Emilia Clarke has finished on Game of Thrones...

    Adulting is overrated anyway!
  4. I'm contemplating re-reading A Song of Ice and Fire... But I know it will just annoy me when I get the end and Winds of Winter still isn't out. :P

    KOTOR film??

    Yeah, I posted this earlier :P But yeah I'm sure there is something in the works, but I'm personally dubious that it is going to be based on KotOR. There's not really a great precedent for EU being adapted for the new canon, unfortunately. As far as I know, the only thing that is definitely canon about that era is that Darth Bane existed and he came up with the Rule of Two after the Sith were defeated by the Jedi. 🤷‍♂️

    Thanks! Now I just need to get my own place, and I will finally be an adult lol!
  7. Star Wars - Age of Republic: Villains Decent comic so far. I enjoy the little "news articles" at the end of each issue/character.

    KOTOR film??

    https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/05/23/star-wars-movie-based-on-knights-of-the-old-republic-reportedly-in-the-works Will make a lot of fans excited lol! Personally, I don't mind if it's set on the game itself, or if it's just set in that time period. I would love to see a film with a bunch of Jedi and a bunch of Sith just going at it. I don't really need Revan for that. Earlier it was rumored that the trilogy the GOT writers were working on was an Old Republic era-set series. So perhaps that is no longer true? Or we are getting two? Hmm.
  9. Yeah, the story is pretty much the same as 1, but I liked some of the mechanics of 2. Plus you don't have to wait as long to get a lightsaber. (Also there is a rumor that a script is in the works based on KOTOR).
  10. According to a Buzzfeed News exclusive Laeta Kalogridis is currently writing a Knights of the Old Republic screenplay which would be the first part of a trilogy. This news comes, apparently, from three sources close to the project. Laeta Kalogridis has worked as screenwriter on several big projects, including Shutter Island and Terminator Genisys. More recently she was co-screenwriter for Alita: Battle Angel, and created the Netflix series Altered Carbon. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic needs no introduction; the 2003 RPG from BioWare has long been a fan favourite, and is set in an era 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin as seen in the original Star Wars movie. The game introduced many beloved characters such as Bastilla Shan, HK-47 (the original sassy droid that makes Rogue One's K-2SO look friendly), and of course Darth Revan. I won't spoil the plot, but if you haven't played it then you should give it a go if you're into that type of gameplay. According to Buzzfeed representatives from Lucasfilm, Disney, or of Kalogridis have not commented on this news, which comes just over a week after Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that Star Wars 2022 was from Game of Thrones producers David Benioff and DB Weiss. At Celebration Chicago in April, Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that Old Republic content was in the works, but did not elaborate. However true this information is, we will be watching with great interest. After all, there were many beloved stories set in the post-Return of the Jedi era that were scrapped to make way for the new canon. The era in which Knights of the Old Republic is set was also wiped from canon, along with the Dawn of the Jedi series, and the Tales of the Jedi comics, but nothing has yet replaced them. Could the story of KotOR be adopted into the new canon, or will the writers build their own stories that re-imagine the era entirely? Let us know what you think.

    A raise is always good too! Yay!
  13. If you liked the first one or enjoy those types of games then it's worth giving it ago, although I wouldn't say it's as good as the first one. It should be quite cheap now.
  14. If you have had an X-wing shaped hole in your reading list for the past few years then you've probably been waiting for Star Wars: Alphabet Squadron, the upcoming new canon novel from author Alexander Freed. Alphabet Squadron is the start of a new trilogy of books set after Return of the Jedi that follows a team of pilots brought together by General Hera Syndulla, who we first met back in Star Wars Rebels. Each pilot flies a different class of starfighter (X-wing, Y-wing, A-wing, B-wing, and U-wing) and together they are tasked with hunting down the mysterious Imperial fighter squadron, the Shadow Wing. Yrica Quell Ship: X-wing Yrica is the leader of Alphabet Squadron. She was formerly in the service of the Empire, but defected after the Battle of Endor. Kairos Ship: U-wing Kairos is as distant and unknowable as the void through which she flies. Just as her monstrous mask hides her face, her silence hides her past. All her copilots understand is her loyalty to the Republic, and the frightening violence that she employs in its name. Wyl Lark Ship: A-wing A youth spent on the backs of flying beasts on his peaceful, remote homeworld gave Wyl Lark a near-supernatural gift for piloting, and a well of kindness and empathy that has never run dry. But war is a precarious place for a soul as gentle as his. Nath Tensent Ship: Y-wing His easy demeanor makes him seem like a starport lunkhead, but don’t be fooled: Nath Tensent is a survivor. He outlived his unit, he outlived the Empire, and now that Lieutenant Quell has pulled him back into the war, he’s determined to outlive her, too. Chass na Chadic Ship: B-wing Chass na Chadic has watched her heroes fall one after another in the name of freedom, leaving her behind; now, as the tide turns, Chass is adrift. Alphabet's mission may be her chance to find meaning in her life—if she can be convinced not to seek it in death. Alphabet Squadron is set for release on 4 June 2019, and you can get the low-down on their rivals the Shadow Wing in the Marvel comic series TIE Fighter, out now.
  15. Last week
  16. A new story by Vanity Fair has revealed new images and characters for upcoming saga finale Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. An extensive Star Wars behind the scenes feature reveals new locations as well as images and names of characters set to appear this December. Keri Russell's character has been revealed as Zorri Bliss, a masked rogueish figure that we will meet in the Thieves' Quarter of the planet Kijimi. Zorri's costume evokes the spirit of bounty hunters such as Boba Fett and Attack of the Clones' Zam Wesell. Richard E Grant will portray Allegiant General Pryde, a member of the First Order. The title of "Allegiant General" is a new one on me, so it will be interesting to find out where he sits among the ranks of the First Order, although I would assume him to be Hux's superior. Jannah (Naomi Ackie) is seen riding a new creature called an "orbak", with a group of natives of the planet Pasaana who are known as the Aki-Aki (below). The article also elaborates on the role of Carrie Fisher and confirms that the Knights of Ren will make an appearance. The photos in this article are from Vanity Fair; check out their article for more pictures and an in-depth look at The Rise of Skywalker here.

    E3 2019

    until
    E3 2019 EA will be in attendance sharing new details for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
  22. I reinstalled KotOR1 and 2 the other day. I can't get the first one working but 2 is working okay so I've just started playing that instead. It's harder than I remember, I must just be rusty.

    Game of Thrones

    Yeah, for all the criticisms of the final season, I think the only real problem is that it crammed too much into too little runtime. The events of each episode are okay but I feel that they would have benefited from being more spread out.

    Game of Thrones

    And now our watch has ended. I thought this season could be longer so things happen a bit more organically, but I didn't think it was a bad season by any means.

    What game are you playing right now?

    I've been playing Pandemic II here lately. if I ever take over the world, I'm going Mad King on Madagascar.
  26. I know, phone prices are ridiculous, but I guess you're paying for the miniaturisation of the components.

    The Phantom Menace turns 20

    Every saga has a beginning. 20 years ago today Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace hit the silver screen in the US after one of the biggest marketing campaigns cinema has ever seen, plastering everything from cereal boxes to vending machines with Star Wars branding. It's fair to say that the George Lucas' first Star Wars prequel didn't live up to everybody's expectations, dividing fans much like Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi did in 2017. However, I'm not here to discuss the pros and cons of Episode I (you can argue about that in the comments, if you like), but this article is simply to recognise the fact that whatever your opinion of the film was it did help cement the Star Wars franchise in the public eye for another generation. Happy birthday The Phantom Menace, and thank-you for inducting me into the Star Wars fandom.

    So, I only went and got promoted at work! From June I'll no longer be party of the call centre technical support team, I'll be party of the website design studio. So happy, been waiting for this for years now. 😂
