The New ‘Star Wars: Aftermath’ Novel Could Explain the Origins of the Knights of Ren

For every cool new character The Force Awakens introduced, and every familiar face it brought back, ten new questions popped up in their wake. It’s been more than thirty years since Darth Vader’s death and the destruction of the Empire, and the galaxy has changed quite a bit since then. Plenty of new players have entered the game, including a mysterious organization known as the Knights of Ren. Our buddy Kylo Ren is one of these Dark Side fanatics, but he seems to be the only one. So, what happened to the other Knights of Ren? And how are they, exactly?

Extensive New ‘Batman v. Superman’ VFX Reel Shows Us Everything That Was Never There

It’s no secret that Zack Snyder productions rely heavily on visual effects: every set involves green-screen, every shot it color-graded to within an inch of its life. Batman v. Superman is a superhero story of epic proportions, and as such required a ton of enhancements in post-production. A new VFX reel breaks down a bunch of key shots to show us everything that was never actually there during the shoot.

Josh Gad Won’t Stop Asking Daisy Ridley About ‘The Last Jedi’

After the title of the next Star Wars movie was revealed a couple weeks ago, a veritable mountain of blog posts and articles piled up debating who “The Last Jedi” could be. Even celebrities weren’t safe from speculation fever, with Josh Gad taking the opportunity to try to ask Daisy Ridley herself what the title means. That attempt went less than smoothly, but far from being discouraged, Gad is back for another go at it.

You Can Watch Carrie Fisher’s ‘Star Wars’ Audition Tape Right Here

It’s undeniable that Carrie Fisher was a rare talent — and she’d have to be, to charm the notoriously picky George Lucas with her Star Wars audition. In a recently resurfaced video, originally posted on YouTube in 2006, Fisher sits down to read a scene opposite Harrison Ford (whom Lucas initially didn’t want to cast, but he was so good in the screen tests that Ford became his Han Solo).

Adam Driver Says ‘Star Wars: Episode 8’ Is Similar to ‘The Empire Strikes Back’

Okay, relax, it’s not what you think. The Force Awakens is still one of the most successful movies in box office history. The criticism, when there was any, shared a similar theme: it was way too similar to the very first Star Wars movie A New Hope. There’s even a shot-by-shot comparison video that details every location and scene the sequel borrowed from the original. A lot of people figured this was the fault of the studio, Disney wanting to play it safe rather than give J.J. Abrams his head so he could take the franchise in a new direction. And it’s true, there are so many callbacks to the original in The Force Awakens that at some point you just want to throw your hands up and yell “OKAY! We get it! This is a Star Wars movie!” Today, Adam Driver raised some eyebrows while talking about Episode 8 by drawing a comparison to The Empire Strikes Back, but not in the way you think.
