    What's the last movie you saw?

    Avengers: Endgame - so many feels.
  3. Last week
  4. The return of Ewan McGregor to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi has been rumoured and speculated about for years, and now several news outlets, including Variety and The Guardian, are reporting that fans will finally get their wish. The role of the Jedi Knight made famous by Sir Alec Guinness first became McGregor's in 1999's Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace and he continued in the role throughout the Star Wars prequels. Kenobi was previously all but confirmed to return in a standalone movie before the spin-off anthology films were canned, following the underwhelming (according to Disney execs) performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story. The new word on the grapevine is that Disney has commissioned a TV series that will develop the story of Obi-Wan, with McGregor signing on for his return. The show would presumably be set during the dark times between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and follow the exiled Kenobi on Tatooine. The series would of course find a home on the Disney+ streaming service which launches later this year, and would sit alongside The Mandalorian and the as yet untitled Cassian Andor series. No concrete details have been revealed yet, but with the Disney D23 Expo just around the corner, we are sure to hear something very soon, but until we see Ewan McGregor walk out on stage with a cheeky "hello there!" I certainly wouldn't blame anybody for taking this news with a hefty pinch of salt.
  5. Disney has revealed the premiere date and trailer for the second season of it's Emmy nominated animated show Star Wars Resistance. The show returns to the Disney Channel on Sunday 6 October and see Kaz and the team continue their fight against the First Order. The show takes place before Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and will see some familiar faces cross over to join the cast. Check out the Star Wars: Resistance Season 2 trailer below:

    The Umbrella Academy

    I just go into this show, and I love it. On the one hand, it's a cool superhero show that's hilarious, witty, and zany with great characters and great production values. But it's also an interesting exploration of family, abuse, loneliness, possibly mental illness. My favorites are Klaus and Five.
  11. Got a lot of stuff going on at the moment, so apologies for the lack of updates, etc. It's been a real tough month so far.
  12. I've moved on to Red Dead Redemption 2.

    Force Collector

    Force Collector is a young adult novel by Kevin Shinick, set before Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It is part of the the Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker publishing schedule.
  17. At San Diego Comic-Con this weekend there was a plethora of Star Wars authors in attendance with some new announcements to reveal. Marvel Comics will be releasing a 4-issue comic mini series called The Rise of Kylo Ren, as announced by Marvel writer Charles Soule who has penned a number of character driven stories since Marvel took over publishing of Star Wars comics. Artwork revealed for the comic shows the Knights of Ren, and we will undoubtedly be getting some more details to Ben Solo's fall from grace and journey to becoming Snoke's apprentice. Other interesting reveals include Return to Vader's Castle, a horror-themed comic to be released around Halloween. Focusing on the bad guys of Star Wars, Cavan Scott continues the theme of last years Tales from Vader’s Castle and recreates the classic archetypes in the Star Wars universe. "Long ago, Grand Moff Tarkin created a monster,” said Scott, “who’s now coming after him.” Force Collector, which forms part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker publishing project comes from the Emmy Award winning author Kevin Shinick, who will be capturing the sense of that time we didn't know all about that galaxy far, far away, as the character learns about the Force through the history of objects he comes across, in a time without the Jedi. You can find much more information and more glorious comic covers on the StarWars.com article.
  18. I saw it the other day and was pretty impressed. I'd say it must be one of my favourite MCU films. Oh, the mid credit scene got spoiled for me a couple of days before I saw it, well part of it did anyway. :P
  19. No really it's something else.
  20. 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+.

    San Diego Comic-Con Lucasfilm Pavilion - booth #2913
  22. 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.
  24. I'm intrigued, although I wasn't too keen on Raimi's Spider-Man films. Hopefully I get to see it soon.
  25. Spider-Man: Far from Home Raimi fans will love the mid-credits scene. That's all I'll say.
