Why Star Wars Rebels Season 4 Might Change Our Minds About Saw Gerrera

Saw Gerrera is one of very few characters in the Star Wars saga to have a role in the Clone Wars TV show, Star Wars Rebels, and a movie. His appearance as a grizzled extremist mostly made of machine in Rogue One was a far cry from the bold young man of The Clone Wars, and it was shocking to see how far he had fallen. Saw is coming back to the action in Star Wars Rebels Season 4, and showrunner Dave Filoni's description of his part to play indicates that we may have to change our mind...

Poe will be back inside an X-Wing during Star Wars: The Last Jedi lat...

Indiana Jones 5: Shia LaBeouf Definitely Isn’t Coming Back

Indiana Jones 5: Shia LaBeouf Definitely Isn’t Coming Back Not exactly a fan-favorite chapter of the beloved action-adventure franchise, 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull introduced the world both to Indy’s son Mutt Williams, played by Shia LaBeouf, and the derisive term “nuking the fridge.” It’s difficult to say which was disliked more by audiences, but needless to say there was more than a little concern that LaBeouf was being positioned to eventu...
