Every journey has a first step. Every navicomputer is programmed with a final destination. And that last sentence is why I don’t write movie taglines for a living. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalkeris almost here; the final chapter of a saga that has enthralled me since I was a boy. I’m not sure how I’ll feel as I settle into my seat in a darkened cinema, as spoiler-free as I can be, or what kind of state I’ll be in when the house lights blaze into life at the end. What I do know is that I’m grateful for the 42+ years of storytelling and imagination that Star Warshas bought into my life.

“Hello There!” Ewan McGregor to return as Obi-Wan Kenobi Obi-Wan Kenobi. Now that’s a name we’ve not heard for a long time. A long time. Unless, of course, you’re the kind of fan who revels in rumors, and has been longing for the return of Ewan McGregor to the role he last portrayed in 2005’s Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith—not counting a subtle line of voiceover work for The Force Awakens (2015), of course. So, when McGregor walked on stage at Disney’s D23 event and asked Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, “Could you ask me, in front of all of these people, all of these witnesses, could you please ask me: Am I going to play Obi-Wan Kenobi again?” chances are that many fans in the room already knew the actor’s answer would…

Turn the pages, you must! Luke Skywalker spills The Secrets of the Jedi Even though the Jedi Order stood firm for a thousand generations, after the Emperor’s purge of their kind only Luke Skywalker remained to interpret their legacy. Star Wars: The Secrets of the Jedi, out on November 19 from Insight Editions, offers a history of the noble tradition through the centuries, presented through Luke’s uniquely humble point of view. “The Luke Skywalker who is writing this particular tome is a long way from the optimistic farm boy he was back when his journey began,” writer Marc Sumerak has revealed. “Because of that, he’s able to look past the glorified stories of the Jedi of old to find the truth about the Order, no matter how difficult it may be for those…
