Star wars Author JW Rinzler has passed away
JW Rinzler, author of The Making of Star Wars: The Definitive Story Behind the Original Film (2007), The Making of the Empire Strikes Back (2010), and The Making of Return of the Jedi (2013), as well as The Complete Making of Indiana Jones (2008), The making of Alien (2019) and The making of aliens (2020), died on July 28 after an 11-month battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 58 years old.
You can read his obituary at Berkleyside. Additionally, StarWars.com has a great tribute to the author with comments from Georges lucas, with whom Rinzler worked closely for 15 years:
“With his kind and contemplative nature, you could see a glint in his eyes, the wheels that turned when he had a new idea, and a quiet fervor with which he always sought more detail for the books he wrote and edited. works he left behind are touchstones of eras and places that everyone can remember and appreciate in their own way. ”
Rinzler’s latest book, Howard Kazanjian: A Producer Life – From Hitchcock and Peckinpah to Spielberg and Lucas, 50 Years of Collaboration, is available now. To honor Rinzler, at the request of his family, please donate to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
Fans of the Star wars, Indiana Jones, and Extraterrestrial franchises are forever indebted to Rinzler for his incredible work in documenting the creation of these iconic and beloved films. Our hearts go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.

Inside Intel: Palpatine’s contingency plan
StarWars.com has a great article on Emperor Palpatine’s emergency plan and the return of the Sith master Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Here is an exerpt :
“When Palpatine was killed on the Second Death Star, his consciousness transferred to a clone of his own body on Exegol, but the body was too weak to contain it. This led Palpatine to create more clones and casts of himself in the hopes that he would be offered a more suitable vessel to inhabit. All of these efforts ultimately resulted in Rey, the daughter of one of Palpatine’s strands. She was the perfect ship, but her father and mother went out of their way to hide her from her sinister grandfather.
