The first issue of The Rise of Kylo Ren is out next week – and we got that preview Wednesday – but Marvel is already giving a look at the second issue. In this one, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, Lor San Tekka, and young Ben Solo encounter the Knights of Ren.Continue reading “Ben Solo’s first encounter with the Knights of Ren in Rise of Kylo Ren #2”
Co-writer Chris Terrio is Rolling Stone‘s latest The Rise of Skywalker interview.
He talks about developing the films, how to go about writing Star Wars “for real” and more. He also talks about going beyond the movies, and not just the cartoons – Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath books get a shoutout.Continue reading “Chris Terrio speaks on The Rise of Skywalker and other news”
The Knights of Ren show up in the latest Rise of Skywalker TV spot, which also includes new shots of Kylo, Poe, Threepio, the Star Destroyer space battle and a Sith trooper.
A new poster has been spotted over in Germany. Big news here is that it contains a porg, the first sign that our smallest Last Jedi faves might make an appearance in the new film.
The comic solicitations for January are out, and they include The Rise of Kylo Ren #2, in which we learn some very important details about Ben Solo and the Knights of Ren.

Per usual, the Vanity Fair story on the upcoming Star Wars film – The Rise of Skywalker, the final episode of “the Skywalker saga,” the grand finale of all three trilogies, etc. – was chock full of information. Granted, most of it’s peicemeal, but that’s where we tiny fan blogs live, isn’t it? Let’s dig in.Continue reading “What we learned about The Rise of Skywalker from Vanity Fair”
As we patiently (or not) await the Episode IX title, Making Star Wars has a nice set of rumors/possible plot details to briefly
Let’s all remember that the one big thing about rumors, though: It’s all a game of telephone, and sometimes guesses and assumptions made along the way get all mixed up in a tiny bit of truth. Remember, MSW had Knights rumors from last time that turned out to be nothing. As always, I recommend not taking these things too much to heart – at least until we have proof in the form of something official, anyway.
Looks like some enterprising fans have managed to sneak into the sprawling Episode VIII set at Pinewood, and got up close and personal with some of the structures there. (via) A second set of photos has also surfaced, these taken in daylight. (Although they also say it’s a different film studio!)
→ Making Star Wars has a follow-up report to Wednesday’s spoilerific Knights of Ren piece, about another sequence that seems to feature the group. Again, these could very well be big spoilers, so click forewarned.
→ And finally, local sources have reported that the third actor who’s been spotted at the Ireland shoots has rejoined Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley. Recent reports of Carrie Fisher being present are likely false, as the date overlaps with her very public appearance in Cannes.
