Watch: Zack Snyder's Fun 'Star Wars' + 'Batman v Superman' Mashup

Star Wars & Batman v Superman Mashup

"There is a great disturbance in the Force…" What if Batman and Superman fought with lightsabers? What if the DC universe had Jedi? What if Jabba the Hut was Superman's ultimate villain? This is just a fun trailer made by a fan, and we'll never see this crossover in real life, but it's worth a quick watch anyway. According to TrailerTrack, this mashup was made by Zack Snyder (or at least posted by him on one of his own social media accounts) and includes a title card at the end stating: Dark Side Knight v SuperJedi: Dawn of the Alliance. This trailer isn't perfect, but is an amusing mashup of the two universes. Check it out below.

Watch: New Featurette for 'Rogue One' with Director Gareth Edwards

Rogue One Featurette

"It's a whole world I've been thinking about for quite a long time…" Disney + Lucasfilm have unveiled one more exciting new featurette for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This video goes behind-the-scenes of the production with director Gareth Edwards, who talks about how this is like "the world's greatest toy set" and how it's like being a kid again. Oh to visit this set would have been a dream come true. I wish there was more behind-the-scenes footage in this, but I do remember we had that other Celebration reel earlier this year that showed quite a bit. It's also interesting to see them showing the direct connections between A New Hope and Rogue One, but makes sense. Can't wait to see this, it's going to be exhilarating. Almost time.

Watch: Another International 'Rogue One' Trailer Teases More of Vader

Rogue One Trailer

"Take hold of this moment… The Force is strong." Disney + Lucasfilm have debuted one more brand new international trailer, similar to the most recent third trailer, for Gareth Edwards' solo movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This features extra bits and pieces of footage in addition to what was shown in the third trailer, including a few new shots of Vader and more at the start. There's even a shot that makes me seem there's some romance between Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor (Diego Luna's character). Starring Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, plus Mads Mikkelsen, Donnie Yen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Jonathan Aris, Riz Ahmed & Alan Tudyk. Only one month left to go until this opens in theaters.

'Rebellions Are Built on Hope' - First TV Spot for 'Rogue One' Debuts

Rogue One TV Spot

"This is your chance to make a real difference." Lucasfilm + Disney have revealed the first 30-second TV spot for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, directed by Gareth Edwards, the upcoming Star Wars solo spin-off movie arriving in theaters in December. There's just about one month left to go until this opens and it looks totally spectacular. I'm very excited to see it, I still have high hopes, and I especially can't wait to meet this team of heroes - every one of them looks like they bring something unique and inspiring to the team. I'm still partial to Donnie Yen as Chirrut Îmwe (and Jyn Erso), but they all seem awesome. Starring Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, as well as Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Jonathan Aris, Riz Ahmed & Alan Tudyk as K-2SO. Join the rebellion this December. Enjoy.

"This is our chance to make a real difference." Disney + LucasFilm have launched the third official trailer for the first Star Wars spin-off movie - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story directed by Gareth Edwards.

Watch: 'Star Wars' Fan Film About Stormtroopers Landing on Jakku

Jakku Star Wars Fan Film

"Why'd you join?" There's tons of Star Wars fan films out there, but it's nice to see something brand new that connects directly with The Force Awakens. Jakku: First Wave is a quick, 3-minute short film made by filmmaker Benjamin Eck about three Stormtroopers about to land on Jakku (the desert planet from The Force Awakens) for the Battle of Jakku. It's a simple concept and was made on a very small budget, but it's an engaging and effective little short that provides yet another unique perspective from the Star Wars universe. The dialogue is what stands out the most, with a tiny bit of levity and a lot of emotion. Take a look.

Watch This: ILM's Impressive VFX Breakdown for 'The Force Awakens'

The Force Awakens VFX Breakdown

Watching VFX breakdowns is always enchanting. ILM has released their full 4-minute video showing their work on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. "The history of ILM leads all the way back to 1975 and origins of Star Wars and The Force Awakens gave us the opportunity to once again push the boundaries of what is possible in character animation and visual effects while combining cutting edge practical effects and physical sets." It's always cool to get a glimpse of what it was like on set and how much they added in each scene to make it feel so real. The amount of objects and layers in some of the scenes is remarkable. ILM also work with their "partners Hybride, Base FX and Virtuos" on this project. All movie geeks need to watch this.

Rogue One Toys Short Film

Disney has launched a fun short film for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that is actually a commercial for the new toys and collectibles from this upcoming spin-off movie. Some have described it as similar to "Robot Chicken", with various action figures and toys and Lego minifigs being animated with stop-motion and other trickery in an adventure to steal the Death Star plans - just like the movie! No surprise there. The focus is on the badass new hero, Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones in the film.

Must Watch: Second Trailer Arrives for 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

"I fear nothing. All is as the Force wills it." Disney + LucasFilm have unveiled the second trailer for Gareth Edwards' Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first spin-off in the Star Wars universe, in theaters this December. A short teaser showed during Star Wars Celebration in London and this new full-length trailer first aired during NBC's Olympics coverage. Starring Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso, plus Mads Mikkelsen, Donnie Yen, Ben Mendelsohn, Forest Whitaker, Diego Luna, Jonathan Aris, Riz Ahmed & Alan Tudyk, Rogue One is about a group of rebels who set out on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. This seriously looks amazing and I love how much this feels like it's a part of the original trilogy, yet still seems like something completely fresh. All this footage makes me happy.
