'Tis, officially, the season to be jolly. No, not because of Christmas, but because it's now Star Wars time.
Battlefront II has hit (albeit to a rather mixed response), new TV spots are constantly dropping for The Last Jedi, parents are buying all the Porg merchandise they can get their hands on, Rian Johnson is going to be making a whole new trilogy, and the 'Wait for VIII' is almost over.
We're less than a month away from the biggest movie of the year, and to celebrate Entertainment Weekly have revealed their latest big cover story offering a closer look at the galaxy far, far away. The secrets of production are, of course, being kept under wraps (loose lips sink starships, after all), and the publication isn't getting into spoiler territory (praise be!).
So there may not be much about who Rey's parents are, whatever Snoke is, or whether we'll see a fight between BB-8 and his evil twin BB-9E, but they do have a number of interesting insights and exciting reveals, from interviews with the cast and director to new information about all of the key characters.10
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
