Quantcast

With the news that Gwendoline Christie would be returning as Captain Phasma for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a big mystery was created in the galaxy: How did she survive the destruction of Starkiller Base in the final moments of Star Wars: The Force Awakens? The answer to that question will be revealed a few months prior to the latest Star Wars film, when writer Kelly Thompson (Hawkeye, Star Wars Annual) teams with artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire, Star Wars: Screaming Citadel) for JOURNEY TO STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – CAPTAIN PHASMA, a four-part miniseries bridging the events between Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi!

Lucasfilm's STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is one of the most anticipated films of 2017, and a welcome return to where we last saw Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron and Luke Skywalker at the end of 2015's STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Launching on Force Friday II - September 1, 2017 - and rolling out well into the winter months, a new collection of STAR WARS toys based on THE LAST JEDI will hit retail, and while countless licensees will be in on the action, here at THE ROCK FATHER Magazine we're presenting a series of STAR WARS Checklists, this one focusing on Hasbro's classic 3¾" action figures, vehicles and playsets (carrying on the tradition that Kenner started 40 years ago)- along with the ever-popular "Black Series" of collector-focused 6" figures and accessories. If you'd like to keep track of what's available or coming soon from these lines, this is the place to be!

Fact: I have never placed a bet on a sporting event, and unless I happen to pull a Marty McFly and head back to the future for a copy of the Grays Sports Almanac, I never will.

It's finally here. After ending JJ Abrams' STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS with a cliffhanger (literally, they were on a cliff), Rian Johnson's STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI finally has a trailer, and it's incredible. If THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK is the gold standard in trilogies with a dark second chapter, THE LAST JEDI just might be it's thematic companion. Luke Skywalker just may have finally...

Star Wars 40th AnniversaryFrom an office far, far away from Star Wars Celebration Orlando, I'm still rockin' the pre-show updates remotely as thousands of Star Wars fans prepare to spend the next few days rubbing elbows with the folks who make the saga happen.
