Rose comic explores her backstory in the best Age of Resistance issue yet

I am in firm agreement with J.J. Abrams when he said that one of the very best things Rian Johnson did in The Last Jedi (among many) was casting Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico. I love Rose, and I'm all for getting more stories about her relationship with her sister, Paige. That's exactly what [...]

The wait is almost over... The Last Jedi comes out NEXT WEEK! That's super exciting, and it's hard to contain my excitement for this movie.  We'll soon be able to watch it in full, but for now we're still being inundated with a ton of promotional material, which is awesome!  We've been looking at any [...]
