In honor of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, here’s a little mini-throwback to some talented Stormtroopers. At least, even if they can’t hit their enemies, Stormtroopers can dance.

From Rogue to Hope

Now that is just awesome. This guy spliced the ending of Rogue One with the opening of A New Hope, and you can see just how much attention to detail the Rogue One had to ensure seamlessness in its connection to A New Hope. They really could be just one movie.

I think it’s time for a little original Star Wars trilogy marathon.

So will they really be the last Jedi? Or will we see a rebirth?

I guess we’ll find out in December. Dammit.

As though taking George Michael away from us on Christmas Day weren’t enough, 2016 continues its reign of terror by snatching Princess Leia away from us just a couple of days later.

Carrie Fisher had suffered a heart attack sometime last week, but reports indicated she was already in stable condition. Now, just a few days later, she’s gone.

Rogues Gathering, Part 2: Built Upon Hope

Rogue One, Part 1: The Gray Side

Spoilers, young padawan!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, despite being a stand-alone film almost divorced from the main film series in terms of tone and the characters who populate each one, is essentially a direct prequel to the original 1977 film, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Some have even joked that if you wanted spoilers to Rogue One, all you needed to do was watch and read the opening crawl of A New Hope.

And it’s a pretty accurate statement, too. See for yourself. (continue reading…)
