Pun-ch It! The Making of Star Wars: Dad Jokes

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

It was spring 2020, when COVID lockdown kept the entire world inside. We all went a little stir crazy as uncertainty dominated the news cycles and social media. Determined to lighten the mood a little, I shared a silly Star Wars joke on Twitter one fateful Sunday morning:

Where does Palpatine hide his Sith armies? In his sleevies.

Did it instantly go viral? No. Did it get more than 50 likes? Also no. But I enjoyed the distraction, so I decided to share an original, terrible, Star Wars-themed dad joke every day, for as long as I could, with the goal of brightening someone’s day somewhere. The key to a good dad joke? It should be just like Luke Skywalker in stormtrooper armor: short and

Inside Marvel’s Star Wars: The Phantom Menace 25th Anniversary Special #1 – First Look

“I had a dream I was a Jedi…”

With these words, Anakin Skywalker’s aspirations were first spoken over a meal with new friends in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Now, inside the pages of Marvel’s The Phantom Menace 25th Anniversary Special comic, that dream comes to life in new drawings from artist Will Sliney depicting a brave young man with a laser sword.

The comic, written by Darth Vader scribe Greg Pak, arrives on May 1 and provides new context around this and other moments in the film, mostly from a certain point of view: Anakin’s perspective. “I was eight when A New Hope came out, so for my formative years, Star Wars was synonymous with the original trilogy,“ Pak tells StarWars.com. „But I delved deep into the prequels when I came on

Ventress faithful rejoice!

After delivering on their end of the bargain, the Bad Batch wait for Fennec Shand to bring them intel on M-count research, and why it has made Omega a target of the Empire. Except Shand doesn’t show; in her place comes someone unknown to the squad, but instantly recognizable to fans as Asajj Ventress, the former Sith assassin turned free agent, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars icon. Viewers were delighted to see her in the

Ventress Strikes Back

There was unfinished business for Nika Futterman. As the voice of Asajj Ventress, the Sith assassin serving Count Dooku, she played one of the most important — and well-liked among fans — characters of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. A dual-lightsaber-wielding menace, Ventress held her own against Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Ahsoka Tano, before leaving the bad guys behind for free agency. But just as Asajj’s journey was taking a surprising turn, it all stopped when the series was cancelled.

“I thought we had gotten to a place in her story where it was going to continue on in this really interesting way,” Futterman tells StarWars.com. “I just thought, now that she’s going to be a bounty hunter, there’s just a world of possibility that she could

How ILM Put “the Empire” in Empire State Building

With all that happens in New York City, it can be hard to impress residents of the Big Apple. (I should know — I’m a native.) But last night, passersby in Midtown might’ve been surprised by what they saw if they looked up: X-wings, TIE fighters, and more from the Star Wars galaxy, all traveling across the Empire State Building.

As part of Lucasfilm’s month-long “Imperial March” consumer products campaign, and starting the “March to May the 4th,” the iconic New York skyscraper hosted a dynamic light show, which saw classic Star Wars moments and new visual effects featured on the 1930 building’s beautiful Art Deco facade. The 5-minute sequence was created by Industrial Light & Magic, Lucasfilm’s visual effects house; for all of ILM’s legendary work, this was a project

Star Wars Celebration Japan 2025 is set for April 18-20, 2025, at the Makuhari Messe.

The key art has been created in the traditional Japanese black ink painting style known as sumi-e, with Darth Vader placed in the foreground. Brush strokes extend from the Sith Lord to the branches of a cherry blossom tree, leading to AT-ATs, X-wings, and TIE fighters. The Rising Sun of the Japanese flag
