Now that the new Star Wars movie has a director and a tenative release window (somewhere in 2015), it won't be too long now before we start hearing word about casting and other official goodies. A new rumor has come out today saying that at least one member of the original cast has already been signed on to reprise his role in Episode VII: Harrison Ford.
Disney has made it clear that they see a bright future with Star Wars. On top of the sequel trilogy, they are also going to be releasing stand-alone movies to add to the vast galaxy far, far away. Because of this, there are a wide variety of characters who could be brought to the big screen, and some fans hope this will include some of the more popular people from the books. Star Wars is known for some of the most iconic villains around, and the same goes for the book series; so I’ve compiled a list of book villains who deserve some love on the big screen at some point.
Most Star Wars fans (and gamers in general) remember the Knights of the Old Republic games fondly, and have wished for another entry in the series for quite some time. While KOTOR II was considered very rough around the edges, it still has a very solid fan base. Now Obsidian (the developers behind KOTOR II) have said they are lobbying heavily to develop a brand new Star Wars RPG.
Many of you know of my love for the Star Wars franchise, and I’ve talked previously about how much I thoroughly enjoy dogfight/flying simulators. So it should come as no surprise that I’m a big fan of the Rogue Squadron video games. Star Wars has spun off a number of video games (some good, some not) that fans have wanted to see return again. While this may not be the first time you’ll see the franchise pop up on my Reboot column, Rogue Squadron is pretty much top of my list for Star Wars games that need some sort of revival.
The fourth season of Star Wars The Clone Wars ended with a bang, having one of the fans' favorite characters (and mine personally) make a shocking and exciting return. Since the season finale fans have been anxious for a glimpse at what's coming in the fifth season, and now a trailer has made it's way online, showcasing a darker period of time for our heroes.
In a very strange story, coming out of Portland, Oregon, one man apparently went a little crazy and unleashed the Force on some unsuspecting customers at a local Toys R Us...Yeah.
