Newest 'GoRogue' Video Confirms ‘Rogue One’ Planet Eadu

In between all the viral marketing, Hasbro’s nifty, fan-made #GoRogue videos keep giving away major hints at the plot and world of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story — and the latest one totally confirmed our predictions about the mysterious planet of Eadu.

We previously went down the Star Wars rabbit hole based on the Jyn Erso photo Lucasfilm released to celebrate 100 days until the release of the movie and speculated that Eadu was possibly the unknown rocky and rainy planet seen in the Rogue One trailers. What made it so interesting was that there weren’t even any references to anything called “Eadu” besides the name being slapped on the packaging of Hasbro toys, and it looks to stay that way.

Early on in the newest chapter of the #GoRogue series, Pao, another new Rogue One character we’ve only seen in marketing materials, screams, “This is Pao, I’m on Eadu, and I need backup!”

Thankfully Jyn and her band of Rebel spies are already there ready to help Pao steal a second batch of Death Star plans from a downed Imperial shuttle. But before they intercept the plans, Stormtroopers destroy their U-Wing containing the other batch of Death Star plans they’re carrying. Soon, former Imperial security droid K-2SO does a double agent switcheroo and gives up Cassian Andor to the Empire most likely to double cross them into helping the Rebels with their mission.

The problem with these #GoRogue videos is that we don’t know how much they’ll stick to the actual storyline in the film. They have all those sweet, sweet merchandising ingredients, but that doesn’t mean things will happen exactly as they do here.

Ponder that as you check out this awesome new Pao action figure:

Still, there’s no denying that we know the once-mysterious Eadu is a brand new planet in Rogue One, and it’ll probably be the place Jyn and company go after more batches of the Death Star plans that are so vital to their mission.

Rogue One hits theaters on December 16.

'Avengers: Endgame' Theory Suggests Ant-Man Scene Is a Classic Misdirection

There have been three Avengers: Endgame trailers so far, but the first one might have been a complete misdirect. When Ant-Man appears at the door of the Avengers compound, Captain America asks Black Widow if the message is old. Fans have speculated that the two moments aren’t a part of the same scene, and an interesting new theory suggests the message is actually from someone else entirely.

'Apex Legends' Season 1 Battle Pass, Start Date, Challenges, Cost, and More

'Apex Legends' is about to get much bigger.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends took the world by storm with its surprise release in February, and the game’s burgeoning community is about to get even bigger when Season 1 launches in March.

Fortnite’s biggest free-to-play battle royale competitor will soon have a nearly identical seasonal structure that includes a premium battle pass available for purchase.

Here's When 'Avengers: Endgame' Tickets Will Probably Go on Sale

The most realistic window is actually very soon.

Avengers: Endgame is officially less than two months away, and anyone who wants to have prime seats for that Thursday night showing should start monitoring ticket sales immediately. There’s no official word just yet, but we can safely assume that Avengers: Endgame tickets will go on sale sometime within the next month or so.

Everything We Know About 'Love, Death & Robots' Season 2 Isn't Much

Netflix's bizarre, hypnotic new series will probably get a second season.

Netflix’s new NSFW anthological animated sci-fi series is unlike anything else on the streaming service, and we’re already wondering if we can expect a Love, Death & Robots Season 2, full of even more hyper-sexualized, and sometimes gruesome, sci-fi stories.

Love, Death & Robots Season 1 hit Netflix on Friday, March 15, 2019, offering 18 different stories of varied lengths between six and 17 minutes long, each telling a totally unique story using different animation styles.

Here's Where the Magnifying Glass Sits on the Treasure Map in 'Fortnite'

Look for the ice statues.

There’s a new challenge in the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale for Season 8, Week 3 that should also feel very familiar to players — it’s a fusion of two things we’re all used to doing.

Week 3 began Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m. Eastern, about 90 minutes later than usual, and even more delayed than Week 2. We predicted that treasure map challenges would return in Season 8, and here in Week 3, they have returned … sort of.
