The cover for the upcoming Visual Dictionary for The Rise of Skywalker has been revealed and on it, we get a great detailed shot of one of the Knights of Ren as well as an official name one of the new TIEs from the film – the TIE Dagger. Could these specialized fighters be for the Sith Trooper division? Rumor says yes, but I guess we’ll have to wait for official word of that. Click the image above for a closer look.
After a huge run up at the end of the campaign, the Vintage Collection Archive book has surpassed $231,000 in backing and is set for production! Backers of this project will not only receive the physical book, but a digital copy as well, plus a several other bonus items due to the unlocking of multiple stretch goals. Congratulations to Dave, Rich and Derryl on this amazing campaign!
We’ve reached our $125k stretch goal milestone and are moving on to a stretch goal that’s close to our hearts. At $150,000 all book backers will receive a recreation of the reverse-side of Kenner’s 1984 Star Wars is Forever mail-away poster (shown above) using Hasbro’s The Vintage Collection action figures and vehicles. The poster will be arranged and photographed by its original creator, Kim Simmons. Kim was the principal Star Wars photographer for Kenner between 1981 – 2000 and if you own any classic Kenner items, it’s a sure bet his photography is featured on it.
Incredibly, Kim has confirmed he still has some of the original elements he used in the 1984 poster and they’ll be included in his TVC recreation! The 18×22-inch poster comes folded in a mailer envelope, like the original.

Update: new details added for the $175,000 stretch goal

I’m told that THIS is the kind of thing we should be reporting, so here it goes. There are strong rumors swirling that a movie based on Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) is in the early stages of development! Buzzfeed News has an exclusive report that according to 3 sources, Laeta Kalogridis (whose work includes Altered Carbon, Shutter Island, Terminator Genisys) is writing the screenplay.
Kathleen Kennedy, was tightlipped when asked at Star Wars Celebration about a potential film or series saying only that “we are developing something to look at”. With the built-in Expanded Universe fan base that the KOTOR series has, this should be a no-brainer.
What do you think, should there be a KOTOR film or series of films? How closely should it fall in line with what has already been developed for that story – a direct interpretation or should it take certain aspects (characters, locations, etc.) pull them in and develop an all-new storyline around them?
Next month’s Vanity Fair will feature an in-depth first-look covering the details of Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. Accompanied by photography by Annie Leibovitz, the story will give readers our best look yet at the final chapter in the Skywalker Saga. Print editions featuring two collectible covers will be on newsstands on June 4.
It looks like after The Rise of Skywalker this December, we will be waiting until December 2022 for the next theatrically released film:
Untitled Star Wars 12/16/2022
Untitled Star Wars 12/20/2024
Untitled Star Wars 12/18/2026
No word yet if this is the Rian Johnson or the Benioff/Weiss trilogy
Sad news to report today as it is just been revealed that Peter Mayhew passed away on April 30.
