    This week on our SWNN Weekly Buzz: new video from the Han Solo set shows a Stormtrooper in action; Star Wars: Rebels Season 4 could appear on a Con in the fall; John Williams gets an a cappella performance tribute; Of course the latest shares from Pablo Hidalgo and Rian Johnson and many more.









    This week we start with a cool video from the 'Han Solo' set at Fawley Power Station with a Stormtrooper riding a speeder. You can hardly see the helmet but I can't help but have a Biker Scout vibe from him, especially with the lack of leg coverings. Still, it's almost a certainty that the helmet will be unique and something we haven't seen until now.










    Also the Splash News channel has some pictures from this shoot that we didn't see before. You can see better Alden Ehrenreich's and perhaps Emilia Clarke's stunt doubles in the video and some cool fireworks.

    Rebelscum (via PrensaImperial) has an interesting rumor to report regarding the upcoming Hasbro figures for The Last Jedi:







    It seems that Rebels Season 4 might make an appearance on an upcoming Con in the Fall. The biggest contender for this seems to be New York Comic Con, but this is just a guess. Lucasfilm's Tracy Cannobbio said:

    Also there is still no word if The Clone Wars will drop from Netflix or no.







    Student group 'Harvard Din and Tonics' give an a cappella performance of John Williams' most beloved scores, including Star Wars, Jaws, and Indiana Jones.

    Now that's a very nice looking cover!





    Former Critic Stands By His Original 1977 Star Wars Assessment.



    The Minneapolis Star Tribune has released a fantastic article from former film critic Bob Lundegaard. In the article, Lundegaard talks about why he panned the 1977 Star Wars film when it first was first released to theatres. Originally he penned that the film lacked an overall plot and contained terrible dialogue. Today, he says he stands by his original assessment.











    Another great art from our friend John Burns:












    E3 is just around the corner (June 13-15). Who is ready for some Battlefront II revelations?

    That comic cover is a thing of beauty.

    The stormtrooper riding a lawnmower... maybe less so. Though I'm sure editing magic will fix that. ;)

    That fan speculation is fantastic! It doesn't make sense at all (just like most of modern fan speculation) but it's still amazing.

    I know that was a fantastic read. Then you finally get to see ROTJ & absolutely nothing like that happens in it I don't know if I would have been P**** or Relived.

    Some interesting fan theories from back in the day. Particularly like the Boba Fett as Luke's father (boba fett)+(amidala)=(luke)(leia)
