Star Wars 8 Leaks: Snoke Spoilers

Everyone is excited for Star Wars: Episode 8 and like all of these Star Wars films, things are pretty well under wraps, making it hard for anyone to know what’s happening or what might happen. Disney and Lucasfilm like to keep these really under lock and key. That said, sometimes the rumors turn out to be true and sometimes leaks make it out of production. It’s hard to say whether a reported leak is real, or just a rumor, but since we have time to kill before the film is released, we may as well speculate, right? So the first leak/rumor we have for you is regarding Snoke’s throne. There have been a lot of questions about Snoke – who he is, why he is there, etc. Might we have some answers coming soon?

Fans are Remastering Star Wars Republic Commando

Speaking of Star Wars games that might see a comeback… who remembers Republic Commando? The game, released in 2005, is a classic to most Star Wars fans. It followed the story of a squad of Clone commandos that fight during the Clone Wars. You saw them go through several conflicts and it was a gritty, meaty change to many other Star Wars games of the time. Sadly, we haven’t seen anything else of Republic Commando since those early days 12 years ago. No updates. No re-releases. No remastering… until now. Some fans have made it their mission to revive the game and we’re definitely going to be following this one to see where it goes. The folks at Blackout Studios have begun crafting assets for Republic Commando in Unreal Engine 4. Check it out: Delta 38: Boss pic.twitter.com/Jr6W3NYj6E — Blackout Studios (@BlackoutGming) May 18, 2017 What do you think? Here…

Disney to Pull Star Wars and Marvel Movies from Netflix

If you haven’t watched all the Star Wars and Marvel movies on Netflix, or if you just want to get your fix and watch them again, you better do it quickly! Disney has announced they will be pulling their Star Wars and Marvel films from Netflix because they’re starting their own streaming service (who saw that coming?). Starting in 2019, you’ll have to subscribe to Disney’s service if you want to see these. As of right now, Rogue One is on Netflix but Episode 7 is listed but says “unavailable”.

JJ Abrams Returning To Director’s Chair On ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

In yet another crazy turn of events, JJ Abrams is returning to direct Star Wars: Episode IX”. It’s a done deal folks and now we know it’s solid, after rumors were flying this morning. Abrams will direct and also co-write the film with Chris Terrio. Rian Johnson apparently did not accept the offer to come back and replace Colin Trevorrow to direct the latest installment in the new Star Wars trilogies. That means Abrams is back up to bat. While we may never know the truth about what’s happening behind the scenes in production and with the director firings/shifts, we do know that Abrams is a great director. I recall how excited myself and countless other fans were in the beginning to know he was working on the first film. So now that he’s back at the helm, we can hope there will be good things to come. Here’s the news release posted…
