Nothing reminds me of the passing of time more than the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars and that the AARP Magazine has a special article in the April Issue. I’m not quite old enough to subscribe to AARP but I’ve loved Star Wars since I was a child and love to learn about the beloved series.

 

The article will have Star Wars trivia in a special article that will be full of fun facts from the past forty years if you are a member of the Empire or part of the Rebel Forces or a Jedi! The article will not just talk about the original trilogy but the new films as well. The facts will include how they got the TIE fighter’s engine with sound editors blend an elephant’s trumpeting call with the swoosh of a car driving through puddles. If you stay till the credits in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story you’ll see that it took almost 2,000 people to bring it to the screen. If you look closely at the Phantom Menace (1999) Senate scene you’ll notice that a few aliens look like E.T. cousins! If you want to learn about the rest of the Star Wars facts you’ll have to pick up the latest issue of the AARP Magazine (April).

I saw Rogue One and was intrigued by the Rebel Freedom Fighter Saw Gerrera played by Academy Award Winner Forest Whitaker. I am very excited to get to know Saw better when he joins the Ghost Rebels Kanan, Hera, Sabine, Zeb and Ezra to fight the Empire. 

“It’s an incredible honor to have Forest Whitaker play Saw in ‘Rebels,'” says series executive producer Dave Filoni. “Forest did a great job at capturing Saw in a way that is a bit mad, a bit crazed, a bit afraid, but also a bit sympathetic. He sees something coming, but no one will take action before it’s too late.”

Photo credit: ©Lucasfilm Ltd.*

If you are getting confused about what time period the Disney XD series fits in the Star Wars film history it’s a prequel to the new film Rogue One. Forest will be voicing Saw Gerrera (from the film) in the debut episode “Star Wars Rebels: Ghosts of Genesis, Parts One & Two” that premiers Saturday, January 7th (8:30-9:30 PM EST).

It’s very exciting to hear from Dave and the team behind the animated series that is enriching the Star Wars mythology! Dave’s work on Clone Wars and Rebels is such a labor of love from a fanboy who grew up to work with George Lucas. Dave’s work on the series is a bridge for not only the films but also to fans young and old. What I love about the series is that they give us an opportunity to delve into characters and stories that can unfold as only a weekly series can as opposed to a film with a finite amount of time.

The character of Saw Gerrera was first introduced in the TV series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” (2008-2015) as a guerrilla fighter for his home planet. Created by George Lucas, Saw received training from the Jedi – Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano – and served as an early harbinger of the Rebel Alliance, an assortment of disparate groups coming together to fight for a common cause.

Nissan has done something no other film and car company collaboration has done. They have the very first Star Wars branded automobile with the 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition package.

 

If you have seen the Nissan commercial you may have thought is the Nissan Rogue IN the new film??? ‘No it is not says Jeremy Meadows, Senior Manager who worked with Lucas Films to bring the crossover to dealerships across North America. The commercial uses the Nissan navigation system to keep the driver safe in a galactic war zone from the new film. It’s quite mesmerizing so I’ve watched it a few times as I count the days to the premier.

Of course now I’m counting down the days and trying to save money for the down payment of this limited edition crossover. As you can see from the video it’s not in your face but instead has simple touches that are noticeable by fan boys/girls but the average person may not realize what rear images mean but the nameplate … well that’s an easy giveaway for even the most casual fan. You can order the special edition starting at $28,950 (front wheel) that comes standard with Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance logos for the D-pillar, Rogue One badges on the front doors, backlit Star Wars doorsill plates, Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire logos in the cupholders and logo floor mats.

This trim is only available in Magnetic Black and Glacier White but both colors come with the numbered full-size Death Trooper helmet that will be mailed once you pick up your Rogue from the dealership. If you want to order the Rogue in All Wheel drive that will be an additional price.

 

Do not hesitate to add your name to the list of Jedi, Rebel, Mord Sith or Empire lovers since only 5000 will be produced for the U.S. market and additional 400 for Canada. I checked on the Nissan site but they don’t have the pre-order option up quite yet. 

What color would you buy and are you Rebel or Empire??? Leave a comment below if you plan to buy a 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition or cosplay when you head to the LA Auto Show and dream about having your own.

Rebels are facing a new threat with Grand Admiral Thrawn when season 3 premiers Saturday, September 24th on Disney XD.

Photo credit: Lucasfilm

Photo credit: Lucasfilm

Ezra’s growing up as is his ability to use the force with the guidance of Kanan. But with great ability comes temptation and the siren call of the dark side is waging a war within Ezra’s soul as the third season has the team embarking on new responsibilities and danger. The rebels new base of operations on Atollon has given them some safety but they have a bullseye on their back with Grand Admiral Thrawn working to bring the crew of the Ghost and all the ‘rebel scum’ down. Unlike past enemies who used force and sheer numbers to try to eradicate the rebels they Grand Admiral instead plans to use his intellect to outthink the empire’s enemies.

Photo credit: Lucasfilm

Star Wars Rebels premier ‘Steps into Shadow’ will be an hour event introducing new enemies and (hopefully) friends to the universe. Ezra and Sabine are given more responsibility and challenges that will put them in grave danger. The entire rebel forces will have difficult choices aith an all out assault on the Empire! The crew of the Ghost will be challenged this season and (I for one) am hoping they’ll all stay safe and give the empire heck!

I’m ready to be scared with the release of Tales of Halloween September 13th on Blu-Ray and DVD Collector’s set. The horror anthology film was released to theaters and VOD last Halloween 2015 with an all-star lineup of directors and stars. Ghosts, ghouls, monsters, and the devil delight in terrorizing unsuspecting residents of a suburban neighborhood on Halloween night. The all-star directorial lineup includes Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, The Descent, Lost in Space), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw 2, 3, 4), Lucky McKee (The Woman, All Cheerleaders Must Dies), and Mike Mendez (Gravedancers, Big Ass Spider!). Cameos by horror heavyweights such as Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Lin Shaye (Insidious), John Savage (The Deer Hunter), Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog), John Landis (Director of Animal House), Joe Dante (Director of Gremlins), Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, We Are Still Here), Booboo Stewart (Twilight), Keir Gilchrist (It Follows), Grace Phipps (Fright Night), Pat Healy (Cheap Thrills), Kristina Klebe (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), Greg Grunberg (Heroes, Star Wars), Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes), Pollyanna McIntosh (The Woman), and more.

 

“the best horror anthology since Trick ‘r Treat” 
 – Fangoria


“among the Best Halloween-themed horror movies ever made” 
– Daily Dead

 

This is a major treat or trick <guffaw> for horror fans that love the more classic look that reminds me of the movies I grew up being terrified of! This has to be added to any fans home collection with added bonus that include a short student film by Neil Marshall (the Descent, Lost in Space), a CD of the film’s soundtrack, never seen before short films from the directors, video diaries and interviews from the directors, cast and crew with sneak peeks of the set behind-the-scenes. Plus deleted scenes, commentaries and photo galleries!

Screen Shot 2016-07-13 at 10.48.42 PMAre you a Star Wars loving lego enthusiast? Well  Disney XD’s new animated television show, LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, is the show for you. It’s a 22 minute series voiced by Vanessa Lengies, Nicolas Cantu, Eugene Byrd, and Matthew Wood.


The Freemakers
 gives the audience a new story focused on a scavenger family, the Freemakers. They are a family of three, and the youngest member, Rowan, is extremely strong with the force. As many fans of the infamous series know, when a character is strong with the force the audience can expect multiple hi jinxes. It’s a new story, that doesn’t feature Leia and Luke Skywalker as the main protagonists. But original fan favorites are still featured; Luke and Leia made their first appearance in episode 5 and Darth Vader and Darth Sidious, formerly Palpatine, made their first appearance in episode 1.

The Freemakers salvage parts from destroyed or abandoned ships and use the parts to create new ones, that they then sale to earn a living. But when Rowan discovers an ancient artifact, the Kyber Saber, he discovers his connection to the force. He is then mentored by a seemingly good-intentioned jedi named Naare. This scavenger family is now in the middle of the battle between the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance. As there is a search for the Kyber Saber crystals where good and bad are compete to find the crystals. And all is not as it seems.

This show is very interesting and it captivates the audience’s attention from the first scene. All in episode one the viewer will discover so much, and there are multiple introductions of characters, ships, and themes. All in episode one the viewer will discover that Naare doesn’t have good intentions with Rowan and is actually with the Empire.

Overall this a great show and the visuals are what the audience should expect from a lego based television show. It stays true to what is expected from a show with such a strong fan base, it introduces new and old characters that viewers will come to love.

The next episode airs July 18 on Disney XD at 10:00 AM.
