So That Star Wars Celebration 2019 Rumor From Yesterday? Not So Fast! StarWarsNewsNet.com is walking back their report from Monday that stated an insider had told them that the next Star Wars Celebration would be held in Anaheim in the Fall of 2019. The article on their website begins by clarifying that a Fall date was reportedly considered, but that the event will likely be in the Spring. Then, it goes on to say that the event may not be held in Anaheim. So, apparently, we know basically nothing new about Star Wars Celebration 2019. https://www.starwarsnewsnet.com/2018/04/further-investigating-the-star-wars-celebration-rumors.html The Famous Boba Fett Helmet in Ron Howard’s Tweet of Dryden Vos, Isn’t Boba Fett Last September, Ron Howard tweeted a photo from the set of Solo: A Star Wars Story of Paul Bettany, who plays Dryden Vos in the film being released over Memorial Day Weekend.

The comic will begin to tell the story of how Poe made it off the desert planet after being thrown from the TIE Fighter that he escaped in with Finn in The Force Awakens. Here’s the official description of the issue: “THE AWAKENING BEGINS! Lor San Tekka has been found and Poe Dameron is off to recover the missing link to Luke Skywalker’s whereabouts.

Mark Hamill Never Said that The Last Jedi is the Reason He Doesn’t Care to Come Back for Episode IX. In an interview with ABC News, Mark Hamill made a comment that has sent the click-bait industry ablaze. In the context of talking about how hard Carrie Fisher’s death has been to him and his family, Hamill said, “It really has tarnished my ability to enjoy it to its fullest. I don’t care any more on that level, because Han Solo is gone, Luke is gone and you just can’t get the band back together the way you wanted it to be, and it shouldn’t be that way.” Of course, the blogosphere has ripped the quote out of context and speculated that Hamill’s real reason for saying it is because he hated The Last Jedi. https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/video/rare-chat-family-star-wars-icon-mark-hamill-54368183 Star Wars actor Donnie Yen cast in Disney's live-action Mulan “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” star Donnie Yen is taking on another project: the 54-year-old actor has been cast in D...

The Creator of The Handmaid’s Tale Blames Star Wars for 9/11 It’s almost too bizarre to be true, but Margaret Atwood, the creator the novel and Hulu streaming series, The Handmaid’s Tale made a rather bizarre statement recently in an interview with Variety Magazine. When discussing how life imitates art, she mentioned a strange video that played behind the opera version of her story in the year 2000 that showed planes flying into skyscrapers. But it’s what she said afterward that was really weird. Atwood said, “They didn’t get that idea from my opera, don’t worry. They got the idea from “Star Wars.” When asked “Do you really believe that?” Atwood said,”Remember the first one? Two guys fly a plane in the middle of something and blow that up? The only difference is, in Star Wars, they get away.” You really can’t make this stuff up. http://variety.com/2018/tv/news/margaret-atwood-handmaids-tale-trump-feminism-1202748535/ Backwards Compatibility is Coming to XBox One, Brin...

In a post on Twitter and Instagram, the toy manufacturer showed the new Funko Pop figure, with the caption: “Please help us name this porg.” Of course, if you’re a fan of Tatooine Sons, you already know that BB-N8 got Rian Johnson to agree that the porg on the Millennium Falcon in The Last Jedi should be named, “Terbus.” Please help us make this official by tweeting to @OriginalFunko with the hashtag #MakeTerbusCanon.

The Full Trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story is OUT Clocking in at 2 minutes at 25 seconds, the trailer takes us from the shipyards of Corellia, to Dryden Vos’ gangster palace, to the Sabacc tables with Lando Calrissian, and finally, to the Kessel Run. You can see the trailer on TatooineSons.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPEYpryMp2s When We First Met Chewbacca, He Was Over 200 Years Old! In a humorous scene in the Solo trailer, Han is taken off guard when Chewbacca apparently indicates that he can fly the Millennium Falcon by flipping several switches in the cockpit. Solo asks Chewie, “Since when do you know how to fly?” Chewie grunts a reply to which Han shockingly responds, “190 years old!?! You look great!” It’s a funny sequence. But it also tells us that Chewbacca is around 200 years old when he and Han pick up an old wizard, a kid, two droids, and no questions asked in A New Hope. Wookiepedia states that Wookies have an average lifespan of 400 years. Can someone say...

A German TV commercial for Renault shows Chewbacca fighting off pursuers on swoop bikes while riding atop of the Conveyex - which is basically a train. The scene itself resembles a Western movie. Add to this comments from Kathleen Kennedy about a Western feel, and the children’s story book being released called “Train Heist,” and it seems that this is what Solo is going to be all about. I’m sure we’ll have a better idea of it after the trailer is released this evening. https://www.starwarsnewsnet.com/2018/04/new-solo-a-star-wars-story-themed-commercial-fea...
