A billion dollars and some great reviews later, Disney/Lucasfilm must be pretty delighted that John Knoll decided to pitch them the idea for a “Star Wars” spin-off that turned into last year’s blockbuster ‘Rogue One.’ I mean, sure, you could have stuck the ‘A Star Wars Story‘ subtitle onto “Queen Of Katwe” and it probably would have […]

One of the more interesting components of the newly Disney-owned “Star Wars” universe is its animated output and that output’s relationship with the former “expanded universe” of material.
