The latest Star Wars story has arrived. Today marks the debut of Star Wars Forces of Destiny, a series of original animated shorts set in that galaxy far, far away and focusing on the franchise’s roster of female heroes. The first installment, titled “Sands of Jakku,” covers a moment not seen in The Force Awakens: Rey (voiced by Daisy Ridley) and BB-8 must escape a ravenous, metal-craving Nightwatcher worm (which keen-eyed film viewers briefly spotted early on in the film) on their way to Niima Outpost — the place where they eventually meet Finn.

J.J. Abrams had not only resurrected the Star Wars universe, but he had introduced entirely new characters to the galaxy to carry the narrative forward. #StarWarsDay, and “May the Fourth (Be With You)” greetings abound — let’s finally solve this mystery: What was Rian Johnson’s big ask?
Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s first teaser trailer revealed a scar across Kylo Ren’s eye. It’s a result of his showdown with Rey in The Force Awakens, but some eagle-eyed fans called foul on the new look, pointing out just how far off it is from the original injury.
If you've only got a minute, watch 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' spoof up to ridiculous conversation between Han and Leia, which is worth it all by itself
Mark your calendars: “Force Friday II” (a.k.a. #ForceFridayII), Star Wars' big merchandise day, will take place Sept. 1
Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t zoom into theaters until December, but it’s never too early to start planning your movie-going wardrobe. Among the dozens of new Star Wars toys in Hasbro’s pipeline for 2017 — many of which will be on display at this weekend’s Toy Fair New York trade show — are a series of weapons and gear based on characters introduced in The Force Awakens who will be returning for The Last Jedi.
A recently unearthed clip that was cut from a version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens shows Chewbacca ripping off the arm of Unkar Plutt after the Jakku junk dealer threatens Rey in Maz Kanata’s castle. Unkar, played by Simon Pegg, appears to be all CG in the rough cut scene — that is, until Chewie rips his arm off and it lands on a table, at which point the limb is physical. The gag (for those of you non-hardcore Star Wars nerds) dates back to 1977’s A New Hope, when Han Solo tells C-3PO to always let a Wookiee win — at games and just life in general — because they are known to rip people’s arms out of their sockets when they lose.
In the wake of Carrie Fisher’s death on Dec. 27, Star Wars fans have been staging impromptu memorials across the U.S. honoring the author/actress and her alter ego Princess-turned-General Leia Organa, who — like her onscreen father and brother — had the Force flowing through her veins. The day after her death, on Dec. 28, almost 100 people converged on Anaheim’s Downtown Disney district and saluted Fisher with every make, model, and color of lightsaber, including the one wielded by Leia’s troubled son, Kylo Ren.

Check out Yahoo Movies’s exclusive sneak peek (below) at the bandages featuring the likes of Rey, Fin, BB-8, Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, First Order Stormtrooper, and that big furry sissy Chewbacca.
Daisy Ridley thinks it’s “quite funny” that people keep asking her who Rey’s parents are — and has hinted that it might not be as big a mystery as everyone thinks. In an interview with Time Out London, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens star, who also narrated the documentary The Eagle Huntress (now in theaters), had a surprising take on the question that has been baffling Star Wars fans for the past year. “I thought a lot was answered in The Force Awakens,” Ridley told the magazine.
Driver, who got his big break on the hit HBO series Girls, notes the amount of work he received based on his role as Adam Sackler on the show, including his Star Wars gig as villain Kylo Ren. The pair also jokingly discussed Driver’s Star Wars character appearing on Girls, confused by the modern world around him.
