Scientific American Is Getting Roasted For Saying The Term Jedi Is Problematic

It’s hard to think that Scientific American would ever be commenting on sci-fi like Star Wars, but it looks like that day has come. A recent article from Scientific American said that the term JEDI, often used as an acronym for “justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion” among STEMM academic committees is problematic. With the term being so popular that even the the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine uses it, the idea has caused quite a stir among academics and Star Wars fans alike.

Mark Hamill Says He Was Impressed by the Star Wars Prequels, Actually

Growing up when the Star Wars prequels were being released has its perks—mainly that I love the prequels because they were my Star Wars that I got to see in theaters, but it came with plenty of people tearing them down and making fun of them time and time again. But as we’ve gotten more Star Wars content, it feels like everyone has started to change their tune on how they feel about them. Even Mark Hamill has stepped in.

One ‘Star Wars: Visions’ episode could be the franchise’s future, creator says

Star Wars: Visions is as enigmatic as the galaxy it inhabits. Released all in one day, the anime anthology series doesn’t feel like anything else in the Star Wars universe. Whenever questions like “are these stories canon” or “will there be a Season 2” are raised, the answer from the minds behind the series has been a resounding “we don’t really know.”

Mark Hamill praises the first part of Star Wars for having “their own identity”

It is widely accepted that the younger generation, whose first exposure to the Star Wars galaxy was the first part, prefer them to OT, and Generation X, who grew up with OT, poisoned the first part as if they knew it. Known to spit out, did something inappropriate as a child. “The Last Jedi” filmmaker Rian Johnson-he had his own share of the unearned Vitriol directed at him- Put it pretty beautifully in his own defense, I tend to agree. A few years later, when I learned that there was a more practical model piece in “Phantom Menace” than the whole OT combined, I was certainly proven by my own love for the appearance of Tan the day before.

LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales goes full Kubrick in new poster

LEGO Star Wars Terrifying Tales evokes The Shining in its newest poster, which has just debuted online ahead of the Halloween special’s Disney+ premiere later this week. Poe Dameron, Kylo Ren, Darth Vader, Maul and plenty more familiar faces can be seen peering through the hole in the poster’s wooden door – but it’s the axe-wielding battle droid that’s presumably crying “Here’s BD-101!”, in a nod to a film that’s way more mature than the LEGO Group’s primary demographic.

The much-anticipated Disney+ anthology series is a nine-episode journey that features the lore of Star Wars told through the style of various iconic anime houses.
