The Last Jedi rumor (and news) roundup: Phasma, walkers and planets, oh my!

Time to catch up with all The Last Jedi rumors that have been flying about recently. Our first batch is from Making Star Wars, which hints at Captain Phasma’s new weapon (check out a fan art interpretation) and a new form of walker. Plus, Jason Ward is tweeting about the look of things in general: “The Last Jedi looks like the Star Wars prequels took “Game of Thrones” on a date and they had a baby.” This does fit with several things we saw out and about throughout the filming, both in Dubrovnik and the U.K.

Meanwhile, Star Wars News Net is reporting about several classic planets making a return in VIII and beyond, as well as how they may tie into the plot. As usual, I recommend reading this with a healthy dose of skepticism, but there are some intriguing things there.

→ Marvel is plotting something for November. WHATEVER COULD IT BE? (Does Threepio get another new arm? Another set of parents for Poe? Stay tuned.)

→ There’s also something going around about a guy from some British pop group having a cameo. Spoiler: It’s Gary Barlow, who also apparently hosts a talent show on the BBC. He’s older than me so it’s not a N’SYNC situation, at least.

→ In officially-sanctioned vagueness, there’s Laura Dern talking about how she can’t even tell her kids who she’s playing.

Zekk to appear in Fate of the Jedi; TFN claims we’ll hear about an old pal in Allies

Sue Rostoni was out on the boards today, and though she didn’t say much, she did say that Zekk, left adrift after the cancellation of the standalone Blood Oath, will make an appearance in Fate of the Jedi. She also clarified that the lack of an epic series post-FOTJ will not mean any less books.

Meanwhile, in the fan realm, TFN has a source that claims we’ll find out the fate of a familiar face in book five, Golden’s Allies. I don’t find this particularly worrying, mainly because Backlash is an Allston book. Sorry, I misread this originally, and honestly now I’m a lot more doubtful of this ‘spoiler.’ Not because of Golden, but because it seems too early for Allies ARCs, the most likely source for something like this.

In any case, this news is going to be blown totally out of proportion by the fandom. Thanks, Paul. :P

Out this week: The Clone Wars, FOTJ spoilers

More disturbing-clad slave-world action in tomorrow’s only Star Wars release, The Clone Wars #4. And on the subject of future releases, there are Fate of the Jedi: Outcast spoilers out and about already. (The book is out March 24, and it seems early even for regular reader copies: It appears ARCs are the culprit.) If you’re into spoilers, you know where to go to find them; If you’re not, it’s time to avoid a few key sites.

Bane #3 title, Fate of the Jedi: Omen blurb

Two big bits of book news on the official site today: The title for Drew Karpyshyn’s third Darth Bane novel, Dynasty of Evil, and the blurb for the second Fate of the Jedi book, Christie Golden’s Omen. It contains what looks like some spoilers for the first book, Outcast, so it’s black-barred beneath the cut. Continue reading

The Clone Wars: It’s Friday and I have no clever

Tonight’s episode is ‘Lair of Grievous,’ which sounds kinda like a Scooby Doo episode. I’m not sure what that makes Kit Fisto, but considering who was present at Grievous’ debut it’s probably at least a little appropriate.

X-Files fans Want to Believe plot summary

IMAGESurfacing today is a plot summary for the novelization of X-Files: I Want to Believe. Is it for real? X-Files News thinks so. Highlight to read the possible spoilers:

When a group of women are abducted in the wintry hills of rural Virginia, the only clues to their disappearance are the grotesque human remains that begin to turn up in snow banks along the highway. With officials desperate for any lead, a disgraced priest’s questionable “visions” send local police on a wild goose chase and straight to a bizarre secret medical experiment that may or may not be connected to the women’s disappearance. It’s a case right out of The X-Files. But the FBI closed down its investigations into the paranormal years ago. And the best team for the job is ex-agents Fox Mulder and Dr. Dana Scully, who have no desire to revisit their dark past.

The novelization is apparently being written by Max Allan Collins.

Invincible summary from the SFBC

TEASER: InvincibleA summary has reportedly appeared on the Science Fiction Book Club website and is available only to members, but someone at the Wookieepedia cut and pasted it.

VERIFIED: Paula logged into the SFBC and this is indeed the one they have posted.

The club writes their own summaries (check out the different Betrayal blurbs at SFBC and Random House) so it’s not too surprising that this is different from the last. (Which still hasn’t been confirmed – they’re keeping a tight lid on this one.)

It’s a long one, so spoilers are under the cut. Click and highlight at your own risk. Continue reading
