I like to think of Temmin “Snap” Wexley as the Wedge Antilles of the Star Wars sequel trilogy (even though Wedge himself showed up in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker(2019), riding shotgun aboard the Millennium Falcon!) Both offered a familiar face in the heat of numerous space battles with whom audiences could identify and root for. Unlike Wedge, Snap met a fiery end in the finale of the Skywalker saga, but enduring an on-screen death in the film series he admires most hasn’t dampened the enthusiasm Greg Grunberg has for Star Wars, as you’ll learn in our exclusive interview with the actor this issue. Heroes and villains are very much the order of the day this month, as we also speak to Elizabeth Grullón who played the Second Sister…

your squadron needs you

Space combat has long been a staple of the Star Wars videogame experience, but it has been many years since a new game dedicated entirely to simulating adrenaline-fueled starfighter battles has graced consoles or home computers. That’s about to change with Star Wars: Squadrons, an all-new space-based game of conflict set in the galaxy far, far away that launches on October 2 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, with the option to play the entire game in VR on PS4 and PC. Developed by Motive Studios in association with Lucasfilm, the thrilling first-person videogame features multiplayer space dogfights, expansive fleet battles, and includes an original single-player story set during the final days of the Galactic Empire shortly after the events of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983). Players will…

audio aphra

Until this summer, comic fans have had to imagine the voice of galactic archaeologist Doctor Chelli Lona Aphra for themselves. Now the character created by Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca for Marvel Comics’ Darth Vader series in 2015 has a voice of her own, in the form of Emily Woo Zeller, who plays Aphra in the recently released full-cast audio drama adapting and expanding the plot from that first adventure. “The entire cast for this audiobook just blows me away,” writer Sarah Kuhn recently revealed to StarWars.com. “With most writers, your characters start to talk to you. You can hear them in your head, and they become these fully-realized people to you. And now that I’ve actually heard them, I feel that even more strongly. When I hear Aphra in my…

the batch is back!

The next animated series from Lucasfilm and Disney+ will be Star Wars: The Bad Batch, continuing the adventures of the elite squad of genetically altered clones that we first met in the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008-2014, 2020) A casualty of the premature end of that show in 2014 was a storyline featuring Hunter, Crosshair, Wrecker, and Tech—a unique squad of clones very different to the army that fans were familiar with. Their very existence became a part of Star Wars folklore after a storyreel presentation at Star Wars Celebration in 2015, but Clone Force 99 would have to wait another five years to make their true on-screen debut when the series returned for its final season this past March. The new series will follow the Batch’s…
