The Force Awakens essentially ended mid-scene, and fans had to wait two years to see how the cliffhanger resolved after Luke Skywalker and Rey had their emotional, wordless meeting on the remote planet Ahch-To. Making sure the continuity between the end of The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi lined-up was important, and Luke’s actor Mark Hamill says they had to make a major change so that the moment didn’t accidentally ruin one of Last Jedi’s big twists.

Shortly before Last Jedi came out, Hamill told Empire magazine that he’d had a minor freakout

“There was something that happened at the end of The Force Awakens when I’m standing on the cliff,” Hamill said. “I called Rian in a panic because it was all wrong. He said, ‘It’s okay, I spoke to J.J. and he’s taking that scene out.’ It just didn’t match up with what Rian had written.”

It’s only after the film’s release that Hamill was able to tell Chinese press what that big wrong thing would’ve been. At one point, Luke Skywalker would’ve been surrounded by floating boulders as Rey looked on, lightsaber outstretched. It would’ve been a cool visual, and it makes sense, given that Luke is a super-powerful Jedi master.

Except — wait! One of the biggest twists in The Last Jedi is the revelation that Luke has cut himself off from the Force in the wake of his failure with Ben Solo. Those floating rocks would’ve undermined his character arc in Last Jedi, so they had to go.

“When I read [The Last Jedi] before [The Force Awakens] came out, I said ‘what?!” and called JJ [Abrams] or Rian [Johnson] to say, ‘Are you guys aware of this? Have you seen a cut? Is there floating boulders?’” Hamill recalled. “And they said, ‘No, we caught that and we worked it all out.’”

We’re all in the Long Night while waiting on Game of Thrones Season 8. Now, possibly out of desperation, one fan has cooked up a horribly tragic theory about how Jon Snow will have to become the Night King to stop his undead army. If true, this would reshape everything we know about the Night King, Azor Ahai, and how the series will end.

Stranger Things Season 3 is set to release some time next summer. That’s a long time to wait before we can finally head back to 1980s Hawkins, Indiana, but in the meantime, a new interview with David Harbour (Jim Hopper on the Netflix series) is offering fans a taste of what’s to come when the Stranger Things Season 3 release date finally arrives.

This is some multi-reality brain magic shit.” Emma Stone’s words in the new trailer for Maniac, an upcoming Netflix original series, seem to do a pretty good job of encapsulating the plot. Created by Patrick Somerville (The Leftovers), directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (It, True Detective Season 1), and starring Stone, Jonah Hill, Sally Field, and Justin Theroux, Maniac looks like a cross between Inception and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. In other words, it looks awesome.

The upcoming live-action Star Wars show will cost a whole bunch of Credits — or perhaps a whole bunch of Gold Dragons. The reported budget for Jon Favreau’s 10-episode series is $100 million, or about $10 million per episode. That puts the show on par with Game of Thrones, HBO’s tremendously expensive (and popular) fantasy series.

David Tennant is once again playing a doctor, but this time, he’s not traveling through time and space in a big blue box. Now, he’s a scientist bringing mechs to a gunfight in the new Rooster Teeth animated series gen:LOCK. A new teaser trailer for the series prominently features Tennant voicing his new character Dr. “Doc” Rufus Weller for the first time.
