We’ve all eased back into normal life post-Celebration, just in time for May the 4th on Monday. In the meantime, John Boyega’s family gets their revenge for all those secrets he won’t spill, The Force Awakens posters have begun appearing in theaters, and something about… Dog poop? Whatever, it’s Friday.
So. Celebration. A new trailer. You know the drill. Continue reading
I figured we ought to get this out of the way before Celebration and whatever they chose to drop on us. Remember your hashtags (#SWCA! #TheForceAwakens! #StarWaraRebels! #SWEU!) and be funny, kids.
So we finally got the digital release news that’s been teased for months, and promptly the usual tedious ‘discussions’ of Special Editions vs. ‘originals’ broke out and let me tell you, as much as I would buy nice spiffy HD copies of the VHS/THX versions I grew up on, my patience with that shit is nil. Still, Bryan made me laugh, so four for you, Bryan.
Onward, to adulthood. Okay, not really. Continue reading
Darth Vader finally won This Is Madness on his third trip to the final bracket, defeating last year’s champ, Obi-Wan. Here’s hoping The Force Awakens really does a number on fandom next year, because when the most exciting thing that happens in the brackets is a Jar Jar cheating scandal, things may need shaking up.
Over the last week, we finally got our first look at Del Rey’s first post-ROTJ novel in the new canon – and a brand new, very Twitter-savvy author to go with it. We also swooned over Oscar Isaac pictures, planned for Celebration (#SWCA is the official hashtag, if that matters to you) and partook of some delicious fanboy tears. Onward!
This is Madness 2015 begins. The annual March Madness rip-off has begin, and you can vote for play-ins for the next couple days, before it starts in earnest.
UPDATE: It’s not the Star Wars Insider going on hiatus, it’s sister publication Star Wars Magazine, which used to be a Clone Wars-based publication, Jedi News corrects. So basically, nevermind. (And that explains why I didn’t get the hiatus email!)
Per their website, Star Wars Magazine hasn’t put out an issue since October.
The Star Wars Insider, which has been published by various companies over the years, traces back to Bantha Tracks, the original official Star Wars Fan Club newsletter. The current numbering began when it was called The Lucasfilm Fan Club Magazine; It was renamed to Star Wars Insider in the early ’90s.
The current publisher of both is Titan Magazines, which handles a number of franchise publications.
Star Wars Insider #156 is in stores now.
