Trailer Time: Star Wars – Rebels Season 4 Trailer #1 “One Last Battle”

At Star Wars Celebration, as expected, it was officially announced that the upcoming fourth season of Star Wars: Rebels will be its last and the first trailer for that final season was unveiled.  There is no animated series currently announced to continue on, so this looks like it will bring to an end a combined 10-season run between Clone Wars and Rebels under the direction of David Filoni.

Vader Unleashed: The Final Scene From Rogue One!!!

A bonus “My Favorite Scene” this week as I try to catch up on the backlog of posts, and because Disney has apparently stopped trying to play whack-a-mole with the army of determined Star Wars fans trying to put this scene up on the Internet.  If you have yet to see Rogue One….well, then we here have no pity for you, this scene alone was worth the price of multiple admissions.  In Rogue One, more than in any SW film, we got to see Vader in the suit in his prime, and the result was both horrifying and awesome.

The 10 Best Character Entrances of All-Time

If you’ve spent any time on YouTube at all, you know people are desperate for subscribers.  The last 10-30 seconds of almost any YouTube video are a needy cry for help from whatever channel you’re watching, but if you’re a movie fan, and you want consistently awesome and inventive lists, you need to subscribe to CineFix.  They turn out random Top….Whatever lists on a regular basis and they’ve come up with some great ones.  This particular one highlights the best character introductions; the first time you see a character onscreen and know they will dominate the film and fill your mind with catchphrases for years to come.  I liked this idea so much, I will not actually watch their video until after I publish this post because I made my own top 10 list below based off the same idea.  So if they copy my ideas, it’s certainly not my fault.

Rogue One’s Original Ending Explained

The Final Frontier has gone through and compiled a detailed  look at what the reshoots actually changed in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.  The film is a perfect example of dramatic reshoots improving a film and not being the knell of doom they’re usually viewed as (though I still think the first act in Jedha is a little choppy).  Going through the scenes we all thought we were getting from the trailers that never appeared in the film, the video offers a lot of great insight on what was a cut and what was never intended to be in the film in the first place.  One thing I found interesting was that I assumed that the decision to kill the whole team (no, I didn’t put a spoiler warning on it because you’re a putz if you haven’t seen it by now) had been a part of the reshoots, but Lucasfilm authorized that before filming began. HOW the team perished though was a large part of the reshoots.  Check it out while we wait to hear the details of what will be on the Rogue One Blu Ray and when we can expect it.

Star Wars Saga Tribute: Fallen Army

While Killing TIme readers have a diverse number of interests, pretty much all of us are die-hard Star Wars fans.  I’m mentally exhausted by the events of the last few weeks and the arguing, so today, I honestly don’t want to do anything more than check out to a galaxy, far, far away, a place we all love.  Leoberry has created this epic tribute to the most intense moments of battle and sacrifice in all eight Star Wars films and did a fantastic job.  Watch and repeat.  Watch and repeat.
