J.J. Abrams Officially Returning for ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’

BB-9E and BB-8 Face Off in This Adorable ‘Star Wars’ Animated Short

Here’s a fun question for you: how many evil droids have there been in the Star Wars universe?

That Obi-Wan Kenobi ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff Is Officially in Development

As it turns out, asking Ewan McGregor about reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in a Star Wars spinoff is basically like a publicity version of Bloody Mary — say it enough times and it’ll appear. Despite the actor’s numerous expressions of interest in revisiting one of the only good things to come of the Star Wars prequels (aside from Watto, of course), the decision ultimately rests with Lucasfilm.
