Obi-Wan Kenobi Film Is Officially Announced

The moment Star Wars fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. Fans have been itching for and asking for a film about Obi-Wan Kenobi and now it’s officially been released. We now have confirmation that an Obi-Wan Kenobi film is in the works. It’s at the planning stages and Stephen Daldry is negotiating the project. It’s very early in the planning phase to know too many details as of yet, but the rumor is Daldry will probably write and direct if he gets signed on. Hollywood Reporter says: “The Obi-Wan Kenobi stand-alone is one of several projects being developed by Lucasfilm and Disney that fall outside the trilogies telling the saga of the Skywalker family. A Han Solo movie is now in the final stages of shooting under new director Ron Howard, and Lucasfilm is also considering pics centering on Yoda and bounty hunter Boba Fett, among other characters….

Is Star Wars the Only Movie Franchise with a Successful Take on the World of Gaming?

Well, not quite – but it sure feels like it sometimes. Since the 1980s, we have had a long string of video games based on successful movies that have failed miserably in getting even close to their source material. Some of these failed attempts are legendary – think of the thousands of “ET The Extraterrestrial” cartridges buried under garbage in a New Mexico landfill. Sometimes it feels like the only truly successful movie-based games are Canadian online slots like “Jurassic Park”, “Terminator II: Judgement Day”, and their likes that you can try at the All Slots Canada. These, along with some other titles – including “Jurassic World”, recently added to the All Slots game library – are being actively sought out and played even years after release by All Slots players that enjoy not only their theme but also their features. But otherwise, the history of movie-based video games is…

The Last Jedi’s New Casino Planet Promises High Stakes Entertainment in Outer Space

Any self-respecting Star Wars fan out there will already be counting down the days on their calendar until we reach 15 December this year, the release date for the second film in the franchise’s third trilogy – Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. And if the positive reactions for both Episode VII and the spin-off film Rogue One weren’t enough to warrant a palpable buzz around the next instalment, we’re also starting to piece together more and more details and developments about what Episode VIII, and director Rian Johnson, will actually have in store for us. Johnson has a suitable pedigree, having previously directed the critically acclaimed neo-noir mystery film Brick back in 2005, as well as sci-fi action thriller Looper in 2012. This recent interview with Kylo Ren actor Adam Driver confirms that Johnson has sought to put his own unique spin on the Star Wars universe this time around,…

McDonald’s Channels the Dark Side with Imperial-Inspired Uniforms

We bet whoever designed the new McDonald’s uniforms wasn’t using Star Wars as inspiration but good luck trying to tell the Internet that, now that the video and pics have been revealed. McDonald’s tweeted a video of how their uniforms have changed over the years and honestly, the newest design is the best of the bunch. That said, the internet couldn’t help having some fun trolling the fast food restaurant train when they realized the new grey uniforms bear a striking resemblance to the same uniform worn by a certain set of bad guys in the Star Wars franchise. Take a look and see if it jumps out to you like it did so many others on the Internet. Check out how our uniforms have changed over the years to keep our teams looking and feeling their best! #TBT pic.twitter.com/pCcRwaM6B4 — McDonald’s (@McDonalds) April 20, 2017 If you watch to…

Why Jedi Have To Be Trained So Young

Why must Jedi initiates be taken away from their parents to be trained as Jedi at such a young age? We explain why this is and look at examples of when this did not occur and left students destined down a path of darkness. We also look at good examples when students who joined the order much later excelled in their duties as Jedi knights. Have you ever noticed how Jedi are always really young when they were trained? Many were taken from their homes and their families when they were just young children. So what is the reason for this? Some people think it’s because they want to get the Jedi before they love. This isn’t exactly the truth. While it’s true that they want to get them before they form attachments, this doesn’t mean they don’t want them to love. Love is okay – and even encouraged. But…
