Although we’ve heard bits and pieces about the story in the months following the release of the second trailer, a new video on the official Star Wars Facebook page might be my favorite thing the team has put together so far. More →

Disney has dubbed today “Force Friday,” although it’s really just an excuse for the company and its toy manufacturer partners to sell a new round of Star Wars-themed toys.

The new Star Wars movie isn’t even out yet, and we already have a character that we totally love: the spinning BB-8 drone that’s even cuter than R2-D2. Yes, I said it.

How much does Yoda weigh? That’s probably a question you hardly think about. It doesn’t really matter how big he is, or how much he weighs.

Althought Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the movie on everyone’s mind at the moment, it’s only one of several entries into the Star Wars film canon we’ll see in the coming years. There will be two more sequels directly following the original trilogy and a set of anthology films focusing on characters and events outside of the main story.
One of those anthology films will focus exclusively on a younger Han Solo, giving us more backstory for one of the most popular characters in the Star Wars universe.
Earlier this week, Star Wars fans got excited over a second of unseen footage that appeared in a new trailer for the upcoming sequel. It might sound small, but for a movie being kept as close to the vest as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it was a big deal.
