For every cool new character The Force Awakens introduced, and every familiar face it brought back, ten new questions popped up in their wake. It’s been more than thirty years since Darth Vader’s death and the destruction of the Empire, and the galaxy has changed quite a bit since then. Plenty of new players have entered the game, including a mysterious organization known as the Knights of Ren. Our buddy Kylo Ren is one of these Dark Side fanatics, but he seems to be the only one. So, what happened to the other Knights of Ren? And how are they, exactly?
Whether or not you enjoyed the rest of Rogue One, there’s one scene in particular that pretty much everyone agrees is great. It happens right at the end after Jyn Erso’s team have successfully send the Death Star plans to the Rebel Alliance (I’d say spoilers, but we all already know that happens anyway), and is a welcome burst of nostalgia featuring one familiar character and some wild swordfighting. According to editor John Gilroy, that scene was one of the ones added during reshoots. (Okay, now I’m saying SPOILERS. You’ve been warned.)
Star Wars Rebels has gifted us similarly high-profile big bads each year, from beating Rogue One to James Earl Jones’ Darth Vader return, to this year’s reemergence of Grand Admiral Thrawn. Don’t expect Vader to have any significant role going forward, however, as Rebels boss Dave Filoni says there’s been “an elected decision to not have Vader around.”
With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story set betwixt the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and with a story that involves the band of Rebels who stole the plans for the original Death Star (the same plans that Princess Leia gave to R2-D2, sparking the plot of the original Star Wars), it would only make sense that the Empire’s villain supreme, Darth Vader, would be involved somehow. I mean, he has to be right? What is he, asleep at the wheel of the TIE fighter? C’mon.
'Star Wars Rebels' officially premiered its "Spark of Rebellion" last week to great fanfare, with the series proper to continue on Disney XD this Monday, but already the animated prequel series is making a major link to the 'Star Wars' movies. Not only will Darth Vader cameo in a newly-added premiere scene, but so too will James Earl Jones return to the role!
Some how, some way this 23 year old grown ass man was kept in the dark as to who Luke Skywalker's father is. In this video, he's watching Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. This movie of course is when the world learned that...well, if you don't know, I'm not gonna be the one to tell you, go watch the damn movie! Or just watch this funny clip and see the guys reaction when he learns w
Videos of U.S. soldiers coming home to surprise their kids always tear me up. I couldn't imagine what that must be like to a child knowing that their mom or dad is out of the country fighting to protect us. This is a very cool surprise.
