PiercingMetal Thoughts: I think that this is a great idea since we are all under lockdown unless we’re viewed as “essential” workforce and these films might be just what most of us need to escape the constant uncertainty of the day based on the Coronavirus pandemic. It’s nothing to be trifled with that’s for sure so I hope you are being safe out there. Currently I do not subscribe to the Disney+ service since I only have a small Kindle Fire tablet and my PS3 is not set up with an app for me to watch on the television so I will be pulling my copies of these classics out of my video library and watching them the old fashioned way. I’ve also been working my way through some of the Marvel Studios films when I am not trying to keep our readership engaged with the website. What do you think of this news? Do you subscribe? Will you watch these films another way if you don’t? Chime in down below and if you need some of them still, I’ve loaded all of them down below on Amazon.com for you to order.
The Press Release:
Announced earlier today at ComicsPRO in Portland, Oregon, Marvel Comics will be putting the final chapter of the Skywalker saga to the page in a comics adaptation of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Writer Jody Houser (Star Wars: TIE Fighter) and artist Will Sliney (Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren) will be teaming up to retell this epic story in STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER ADAPTATION #1. In addition to the shocking twists and turns that were present in the film, the five-issue limited series will also have brand-new story material for readers to enjoy!
“As a lifelong Star Wars fan, it was an honor to be asked to be a part of wrapping up the Skywalker saga with Marvel Comics,” Houser said. “We have some fun plans to add scenes and material that weren’t seen in the movie.”
Relive Rey’s quest, the Resistance’s desperate last stand, and the return of an old enemy when STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER ADAPTATION #1 hits stands this June!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I realize that this final installment in “The Skywalker Saga” left a lot of fans for want, I have to admit that I really enjoyed it. I felt it was a proper closing to a group of characters that were as much as part of my childood as my adulthood and kept my geek interests fed properly. Now as far as the comic book adaptations of these films, I’ve not purchased any of these for myself since “Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi” and nowadays I will just grab a collected edition of the mini-series since that is where I am on them. Maybe I will snag this one just the same but June is a bit of a ways away and there is no sense in deciding right now. I’ve got a lot of Toy Fair items to finish up so will end this particular announcement with the question of “what do you think about this news?” Are you planning on purchasing and for that matter, did you enjoy the film? Chime in down below and I will see you next time.
It almost feels like forever ago when I posted the FINAL TRAILER for “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” and while it was only in October, we’ve surely had a bevy of content related to the film to share with you all. Since then there have been Featurettes, TV Spots and Promotional Posters that you can examine at your leisure by clicking HERE. Now its time for the moment that you have all been waiting for since “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” opens today in theaters everywhere. As you know this was a journey that began some forty plus years ago in 1977 with “Star Wars: A New Hope” (before it even had a Roman numeral and chapter name). Today that film opens in theaters everywhere and I’d say to check your listings but you will likely be able to find a showing at every turn especially if you live in a big metropolis like we do. Below you’ll find the Official Theatrical Poster, premise and casting. Let’s review.
We are only “13” days away from the opening of the highly anticipated film “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” and to say that it’s left me with a lot of items to share with you on our humble website would be an understatement.

If you’d like to see all of that stuff just click HERE to open up a new tab in your browser. Now it’s time to share the latest featurette from the film which is called “Friendship”. I’ll follow the footage with the premise, casting and the Official Theatrical Poster. Enjoy.
The arrival of a film like “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” has been keeping entertainment websites such as this one very, very busy. We’ve gotten Trailers, Featurettes, TV Spots and there were also a crop of Promotional Posters to share with you. Having touched upon the topic of the film already, I’m directing you HERE to see all of our posts since I am certain the fanboy and fangirl in you is going to want to have as much of the information as possible. I’m using this post to finally showcase the promotional posters that were revealed over the last couple of months. I’ll begin with the Official Theatrical Poster and then share what I’ve discovered.
