The Fan-made Obi-Wan/Vader fight scene, reimagined.

I’ve been seeing people reference this a few times today, so I finally watched it. It’s well done. More than you might think, in fact.

Seriously, compare it to the original Star Wars clip.

Tweet of the Day, The New Star Wars Trailer Gets ‘Sabotaged’ edition.

Or, in this case, “What’s Up Danger”ed.

Whatever your opinion of the movie — or the song, I guess — that’s a real nice video-audio sync.

The Clone Wars Season 7 trailer.

I don’t actually watch Clone Wars, although I readily concede that I should. But a lot of people are apparently really eager for this… and you’ll get it! …On Disney+.

‘Galaxy’s Edge’ Star Wars theme parks open at Disney this summer.

May on the West Coast, August on the East.

Both east and west coast versions of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will allow guests to visit a remote trading port on the edge of wild space, where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life – and where guests will find themselves in the middle of the action. The lands will feature two major attractions that put guests in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Each attraction – and even the land itself – will offer guests the chance to immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe like never before.

EA discards the withered husk of the Star Wars open-world game.

I’m with Penny Arcade on this: better for it to have never been.

Kotaku is reporting that Electronic Arts has cancelled its planned open-world Star Wars game, citing three sources close to the company. The game had been in development at EA Vancouver, the studio responsible for games such as FIFA and Battlefront, since 2017. The site reports that EA canned the game in favor of a different Star Wars title that had a shorter timeline of development.

The Sarlacc wins after all: the Boba Fett movie is dead.

It’s official: “This week Lucasfilm exec Kathleen Kennedy confirmed to reporter Erick Weber that a standalone Star Wars movie focusing on bounty hunter Boba Fett is no longer in development. While the project had never been officially announced, it was known to be a piece in the parade of “anthology” movies planned in the universe.”  This was already highly likely, considering that Disney previously announced that they were making a TV show called The Mandalorian — but now it’s official.

We will now pause while everyone with an opinion on the subject counts coup.  Gonna be honest, here: I don’t trust simple answers to complicated questions involving tons of money.   More to the point: neither does Disney.  They put up several billion dollars in order to acquire this particular intellectual property, and the Mouse has a dizzying number of blunt instruments with which to hammer this issue back down until it’s flush with the surface and generating revenue.  They will adapt and overcome their Star Wars problem.  Don’t know how they will, but they will.
