According to a member of TheForce.Net forums, the Star Wars Expanded Universe could be frozen in carbonite for the time being. While at Starfest 2013 in Denver, Colorado, a fellow Star Wars fan met author Timothy Zahn in the elevator. The fan in questioned engaged Tim in conversation, and what Tim revealed is this…
…A freeze has been put on any, at least for him, books for the Expanded Universe beyond Return of the Jedi. Continue Reading EU in Carbonite?…

Star Wars artist Chris Trevas recently revealed on Facebook that he and fellow Star Wars artist Chris Reiff have begun work on two new Star Wars projects. Chris Trevas and Chris Reiff working on two new, mysterious projects…it’s time to fire up the conspiracy wheels.
First, let us begin with the hard evidence.
“Chris Reiff and I are starting work on our next TWO Star Wars book collaborations! The books haven’t been announced yet so we can’t discuss them, but they will be fully illustrated by just the two of us…We won’t wrap up these books until 2013…One book is part of a series we’ve been doing, the other is completely new.” -Chris Trevas
We love a good conspiracy theory, and over on TopTenz.net, James Ciscell posted a rather compelling argument on why he thinks Boba Fett killed Owen and Beru Lars. The ten reasons given are well thought out and make sense. You can check them out here. It certainly gives a whole new meaning to the line “No disintegrations!”

This week we’re taking a closer look at Kenobi, the recently announced Star Wars novel from John Jackson Miller. John has teased readers with the following…
“Kenobi is a sweeping story that’s part epic western, part high-stakes drama, part romance — but it’s all Star Wars, taking place in the early days of Obi-Wan’s exile to Tatooine. I shouldn’t expand too much beyond what Random House said on its panel and Facebook page, but I can say this. I’ve been working on this concept for years — I’ll talk more about that process later on — and the basics are pretty simple. The greatest hero in the galaxy faces his toughest challenge yet: He must stop being Obi-Wan — and become Crazy Old Ben.” -John Jackson Miller
Epic western. High-stakes drama. Romance. What can it all mean? Well, we’re prepared to delve into the depths of possibility. Continue Reading A Closer Look at ‘Kenobi’…
At Star Wars Celebration VI, chalk artist Eric Maruscak created a cool mural for The Clone Wars. It depicted Darth Sidious and a bunch of TCW characters with the tagline “who will fall?” Not too long afterwards, the promotional art appeared online. Each season of The Clone Wars has typically had a catch phrase like “Season of the Bounty Hunters” or “Secrets Revealed.” If those are anything to go on, then Season 5 is “Who will fall?”
Now at first glimpse, the promo art would suggest that one of the characters shown might die in the season opener. For everyone whose seen “Revival”, we already know who that person is. But what if “Who will fall?” is not just a promo to kick start the season, but a theme for the entire season? What if this is just one of many deaths to come? With Darth Maul and Savage Opress tearing through the cast of characters, this is definitely a possibility. On top of that, there’s the promise of Black Sun, Death Watch, and a seriously ticked off Darth Sidious.
Fair warning, we’re heading into spoiler territory for Season 5, Episode One. Continue Reading Conspiracy Report: And They All Fall Down…

Once again we’ve sent out our Kubaz spies to scour the galaxy for breaking news and tantalizing rumors (Bothan spies are overrated anyways). This week they’ve come back with some startling information on Paul S. Kemp’s secretive Star Wars duology.
Sometime next year we’ll get to see the first book in Paul S. Kemp’s yet-to-be-revealed Star Wars duology. We don’t know much about Paul’s two books yet…or do we? In an interview with Civilian Reader, Kemp mentioned that the duology will be hardcover. Del Rey Editor Frank Parisi described it as “a very ambitious project.” We know we’ll get a Big 3 novel from Denning next year in the form of Crucible. We’ll also be getting Dawn of the Jedi: Into the Void by Tim Lebbon, and The Last Jedi by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff.
We’ve spent many hours extrapolating the known data and meditating on the fumes of old Star Wars novels in order to ascertain what it could all mean. Our conclusion is this: Paul S. Kemp’s duology will be a story about Squibs. Continue Reading Conspiracy Report: Begun The Junk Wars Have…

Our conspiracy theorist have rose to a new challenge: connecting the dots between the villain’s in Troy Denning’s upcoming novel Crucible to his old days at West End Games. Bear with us because this will not be a short journey. In fact the first step in this conspiracy theory starts with our review of a book called Scoundrel’s Luck.

Spike TV has announced that this Thursday a new Star Wars video game franchise will be revealed on a pre-E3 episode of GameTrailers TV. This will be followed up by a full game trailer premier at the E3 Expo which starts June 4th. So far no one knows what the new franchise will be, but there’s plenty of speculation: Knights of the Old Republic III, Battlefront III, The Force Unleashed III, a Boba Fett Kinect game, or something entirely new.
