By: Dominic Jones

"We're the Resistance now, and we're taking back The Colossus."

Lucasfilm has just released a brand new trailer for the second half of the first season of Star Wars Resistance.  The trailer begins by showing an increased presence from the First Order and quickly escalates from there, as we see glimpses of more pirate attacks, undersea action, and what may be the results of a previously unseen Starkiller Base weapons test.  In addition to the series main characters, we also see that Poe Dameron and General Leia Organa will be back on the show, and General Hux will be making his debut (seen in the trailer giving his famous speech from The Force Awakens).  Check out the trailer below,

Todd Fisher Discusses Carrie Fisher & Leia In 'Episode IX'

0 comments

By: Benjamin Hart

We are now less than a year away from the release of Star Wars: Episode IX, which is already being billed as the "final" installment in the Skywalker saga. While we don't know much else about the sequel so far, we do, however, know that the late Carrie Fisher will have a part to play in it.

Two years ago, on December 27th, 2016, Fisher passed away at the age of 60. At the time, the legendary actress had completed filming her scenes for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which premiered a year later in December of 2017. For a while it was believed The Last Jedi would be Carrie's final outing as General Organa. However, the official casting announcement confirmed director and co-writer J.J. Abrams would be utilizing unused footage from Episodes VII and VIII to bring Carrie back one last time as Leia.
