Twelve things we learned from The Skywalker Legacy documentary about the making of The Rise of Skywalker!

The Rise of Skywalker released early on digital home media, and with it came lots of bonus content!

Star Wars Resistance: “The Escape” review!

It's crazy to believe, but Star Wars Resistance has concluded its run! It had just two seasons and seems to have been not much more than a filler in-between higher-priority animated projects, but in the meantime it managed to create really compelling characters and tell an entertaining story. It has been continually underrated in its [...]
