Who is Kylo Ren in STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS?

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Star Wars fan who loves the Prequels. They certainly exist – trust me – however they’re so few and far between that you could be mistaken into thinking they’re unanimously hated.

Are STAR WARS Shows Coming to Netflix?!

Back when Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4Bn in 2012 there was so much speculation about what they would do with the property.
