WARNING: The following contains spoilers from the Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series.
The third live-action Star Wars series and first limited series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, has come to an end. Set a decade after the events of Revenge of the Sith, the Jedi master has lost his way as he lives in exile on Tatooine, watching out over a young Luke Skywalker. However, when a call summons for him to leave his post, he must find balance within the Force and himself, in order to become the headstrong Jedi he was once more.
Keith, Dominic, and Britney are back to talk about the latest installments of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ms. Marvel. What’s #NerdPoppin: Lightyear, Blade: Trinity on TNT and the Golden State Warriors NBA Championship, plus the announcement of a Joker sequel featuring Lady Gaga.
The Nacelle Company — the studio behind Netflix’s The Toys That Made Us and Disney+’s Behind The Attraction — has announced Icons Unearthed, a new documentary series that will focus on some of the biggest pop culture franchises in history. The first topic of the series will be none other than the Star Wars Universe.
During Star Wars Celebration this past weekend, The Nerds of Color got to chat with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy about bringing more creatives of color into the Star Wars Universe, while also protecting newcomers like Moses Ingram coming into the fandom. Kennedy knows they can’t change social media, but they can change how they react to it.
Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, after quite a few pandemic delays, has at last come and gone. Three members of The Nerds of Color were present for all the action, including yours truly. This was actually the first Celebration I had ever been to and having bought my pass to it back in June 2019, this was a long time coming.
Keith, Dominic, and Britney are here to review the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi, which dropped on Disney+ over Memorial Day Weekend. They also cover all the major news from Star Wars Celebration, including the Ahsoka series and the Andor trailer.
It’s not Star Wars without its animated shows, and The Bad Batch is the latest entry to expanding the galaxy far, far away through that medium. Set immediately after Order 66, Clone Force 99 — a squad of clone troopers with genetic mutations — along with young clone, Omega, navigate the galaxy, where the need for clones in the era of the Empire is slowly but surely becoming obsolete.
“Ezra’s out there somewhere. And it’s time to bring him home…” four years ago, those final words ended one journey, and began a new one, as the beloved Star Wars: Rebels brought its four-season run to a close. For years, Rebels mastermind, and overall walking Star Wars encyclopedia, Dave Filoni, has been asked when we’d get to see that new journey unfold. And this weekend at Star Wars Celebration, Filoni finally answered that question.
What even is a “diehard” Star Wars fan? Back in the early days of the franchise, when it wasn’t a franchise, a “hardcore” fan would be the ones camping out at their local theater the night before — a tent and sleeping bag to fight back the cold. All was worth it to be among the first to see Luke’s adventure come to a triumphant conclusion (for now).
Are you at Star Wars Celebration? Looking for some really special watches that will light up the galaxy hotter than Luke did to the first Death Star (Burn on you, Empire)? Then you’ll immediately want to check out the Citizen booth (Hall C, Booth #2743) when visiting the convention.
During Star Wars Celebration’s LucasFilm Studio panel, the cast and creatives behind the upcoming Disney+ series Andor released a teaser trailer. The series, which was revealed to consist of 12 episodes — and 12 other episodes for the second season, launches exclusively on Disney+ on August 31.
In one week, on the 45th anniversary of the original Star Wars, Disney+ will be premiering the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Filling in the gap between Episodes III and IV, Obi-Wan Kenobi brings back Prequel era stars Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen to reprise the roles of Kenobi and Darth Vader, respectively.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers from the first season of The Book of Boba Fett.
All the episodes of the first season of the second Star Wars live-action series, The Book of Boba Fett, are now streaming on Disney+. The underworld of Tatooine is turned on its head when Boba Fett and Fennec Shand roll into town, looking to rule over the territory that once belonged to Jabba the Hutt. It’s easier said than done, as the two are quick to realize.
Though The Book of Boba Fett just completed its initial season with a thrilling action-packed finale, Disney+ is going right back to Tatooine in its next Star Wars series. It was revealed today that the highly anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series will debut on May 25. Four and a half decades to the day Alec Guinness originated the role in Star Wars: A New Hope.
