8 Disney Moments of Pause: But What About the Donkey Children?

Listening to the song "Cruella de Vil" from 101 Dalmatians, I was suddenly slammed with the realization that she stole puppies to make coats out of them, but ... it never said whether she owned any factories or anything. Was she literally going to kill them, tan the puppy hides, and stitch the coat together, all alone, by hand?

Poorly Faked Accounts of Violence at Black Panther Screenings Are Showing Up Online

Internet trolls just can't seem to get enough of failing at attacking Marvel's Black Panther. Weeks ago, efforts to deliberately sink the movie's Rotten Tomatoes audience score were floated before being quickly put in check, and now a different tactic is at play: posting easily discernible fake accounts of violence against white people at screenings of the movie.

What’s up With the Millennium Falcon’s New/Old Look in Solo: A Star Wars Story?

Lando's grandeur is no delusion.

When the first trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story debuted, one of the most noticeable differences in its cast of recognizable characters was that the Millennium Falcon we all know and love looked shiny and new for once. But beyond that, there are even more differences to the famous ship, both subtle and fairly large, and it seems the movie will have as much backstory to cover on that front as it does with its flesh and blood characters.

“A Few” Star Wars TV Series on the Way to Make Us Subscribe to Disney’s Streaming Service

Yesterday, the news that HBO's Game of Thrones duo, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, will take on writing and producing duties for a new series of Star Wars films dominated the internet—and probably not for the reason that Lucasfilm had hoped. That overshadowed another bit of Star Wars news, because there's just too much of it to keep up with these days: Disney is planning "a few" Star Wars TV shows for their standalone streaming service.

Animation Recreates the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Opening That Was Never Made

We've now seen a lot of things from Star Wars: The Force Awakens take strange and unexpected turns thanks to The Last Jedi, but even the events of the first movie weren't always set in stone.

The Full Solo: A Star Wars Story Trailer Finally Gives Us Han

Last night, during the Super Bowl, a teaser for the Han Solo prequel movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story, was broadcast for all the world to see, but it was largely missing one important element: Han Solo. (Though we wouldn't blame you if that's not what you're in this for anyway.) He had some voiceover and over the shoulder shots, only showing his smug face at the last moment, but in the full trailer from this morning's Good Morning America, he's the focal point.

Facebook Shut Down the Group Planning to Trash Black Panther’s Viewer Ratings

Yesterday, news made the rounds of a Facebook group—purportedly run by the same person who took credit for attacking Star Wars: The Last Jedi's user ratings on review site Rotten Tomatoes—that was aiming to bring down user review scores for Marvel's Black Panther later this month. Despite the administrator's seeming glee at all the news coverage, it has come back to bite them: Facebook has removed the page.

Absurd Trolls Try to Tank Black Panther User Ratings: “Minorities … Should Stay That Way”

The same group that claimed responsibility for lowering Star Wars: The Last Jedi's user rating on review site Rotten Tomatoes is back at it again, this time targeting Marvel's Black Panther. It's sad enough to see supposed fans launching angry campaigns to tank review scores with an Us vs. Them mentality, but the reasons given for their frustrations are even worse.

No Plans Yet for the X-Men to Join Marvel Movies, Despite Disney Buying Fox

Yet.

You may remember that when Marvel and Sony finally struck their deal to incorporate Spider-Man into the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe, it caused some shifts in the Marvel movie schedule. Good news: The X-Men (and Fantastic Four) now residing at the same studio, thanks to the Walt Disney Company's buyout of Twenty-First Century Fox, won't disrupt the upcoming Marvel schedule and delay movies we've already been waiting for.

"Don't you know that you're toxic?"

John Williams's epic score does a lot to make Star Wars what it is, and that's no different with the most recent addition to the franchise, The Last Jedi. Director Rian Johnson even shared a video of Williams doing his thing, but what would the movie be like with some ... different musical stylings? The perfect Friday Twitter thread has us covered.
