Star Warsis history! Obviously it’s not over, thank the Maker, but by definition, it all happeneda long time ago—whichStar Warshas always been very upfront about, in big blue letters. So there’s no need for us to do a Kylo Ren and “Let the past die.” As our beloved galaxy far, far away expands its borders and explores new eras of storytelling on Disney+ and with the likes of Project Luminous, we as fans can continue to revel in what has gone before. Last issue we very much focused on shiny new things, including the Mandalorian’s briefly pristine beskar armor, but this time out—as we wait to find out what’s coming next—we’re diving into the Jedi Archives, Jocasta Nu-style, to embrace what came before. Of course, that now includes Star Wars: The Rise…

Thanks A Billion Audiences Flock to See the Skywalker Saga Finale With advance online ticket sales replacing queues around the block, perhaps we should be calling Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker a “server-buster” rather than a blockbuster, but bust blocks the movie has, breaking the billion-dollar box office barrier in its first month of release. The adventure began on December 16, 2020, at the World Premiere in Los Angeles and continued a day later at the European premiere of the movie in London, England, where members of the cast joined eager audiences who were among the first to experience the finale of the Skywalker saga. “We could not be more excited,” said Kathleen Kennedy prior to the screening at Hollywood’s Dolby Theater. “This is the first audience. No one has seen it, we’ve…

Bounty Beware! Disintegration time in Star Wars: Bounty Hunters The appearance of the masked Boba Fett, reptilian Bossk, and a squad of other gritty-looking hunters in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) introduced a new Star Wars faction, positioned in the gray area between the heroic rebels and the villainous Empire. These bounty hunters didn’t wear uniforms and didn’t believe in any cause other than their latest job. That roguish appeal is still potent today, as proven by the success of the Disney+ show The Mandalorian, and in an all-new comic series from Marvel: Star Wars: Bounty Hunters. Writer Ethan Sacks (Galaxy’s Edge) and artist Paolo Villanelli (Vader: Dark Visions) team up to deliver the adventures of the freelancers who prowl the Outer Rim in search of wanted fugitives, including Beilert Valance,…
