The Galactic Starcruiser will close its doors for good in September.
Star Wars: Visions’ second season is a breathtaking reminder of how freeing living outside of the canon can be.
In a galaxy far, far, away, jazz doesn’t exist. Instead, when you want to really blow on that horn you’re jizzing or jatzing. As AVClub recently noted, both words have technically been used to describe the musical stylings of the Star Wars universe over the years, with jizz gaining in popularity for extremely obvious reasons.
But in a recent short story collection based around Return of the Jedi characters, Max Rebo, the blue alien front man for the band that plays at Jabba the Hutt’s palace thinks back to other times he’s performed “jatz standards”. That means jatz is the official Disney-approved name for the music.
Wookiepedia, meanwhile, continues to embrace jizz.
As promised when the new season launched, Star Wars heroine Ahsoka is now available in Fortnite (so long as you purchased the current battle pass). She has an adorable pet for back bling and her arrival also means the return of lightsabers to the battle royale island. The timing is also good: the penultimate episode of Ahsoka’s Disney Plus series is streaming tonight.
Imagine owning Red Leader’s X-Wing. Not a starfighter, of course, but the actual miniature built and filmed by ILM for 1977’s Star Wars — with servo-controlled wings that really do swing into attack position.
The hero model was thought lost for 40+ years, but it’s now up for auction starting at $400K. It’s joined by “the most complete and best condition” Stormtrooper armor, an original Wah Chang Star Trek TOS tricorder, “one of only two hero Type-2 Phasers known to exist,” and Starfleet uniforms worn by Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Scotty, and more.
Rather than dotting every single i and crossing all of its t’s The Mandalorian spent its extremely adequate third season trying to forge new lore for lore’s sake.
If you’re already done with that other Star Wars game, the galaxy far, far away has once again descended on Fortnite. That includes gameplay features like the return of lightsabers and Force abilities, as well as the prerequisite new characters to buy like Anakin, Padme, and Darth Maul. You can get all the details right here.
Another Star Wars character is joining the ranks of Fortnite’s battle royale. This time it’s Anakin Skywalker, who will be available in-game on May 2nd. Just watch out for players who have the high ground.
Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen will reprise the role of Grand Admiral Thrawn, a character he voiced in Star Wars Rebels and one of the most beloved villains in the larger Star Wars canon. Lucasfilm announced the casting news during an Ahsoka panel at Star Wars Celebration, all but confirming the bright blue Chiss officer will be the next big bad in live-action Star Wars.
