Star Wars in 3D is Coming

Big news for 3D movies: All six Star Wars films are coming to theaters with full 3D conversions. Only unlike recent films that were filmed in 2D and converted to 3D with less-than-spectacular results (*cough*ClashoftheTitans), this being Star Wars, Lucasfilm is not rushing the conversion process, using painstaking attention to detail to give it the best […]

Kenny Baker Gets Plucked From R2-D2, Replaced By Big Person

R2-D2 was so small during the making of Star Wars that a little person (Kenny Baker) had to crawl inside to control R2-D2’s every action. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with the original R2-D2 it’s not made for normal sized folks, but now that has changed. A fan of the Star Wars series created […]

The Making of the Best Star Wars Movie

The Empire Strikes Back is the gold standard for the Star Wars saga. Nearly every geek agrees: the saga hits its dramatic and creative peak at Episode V. Which is why it’s such great news that Lucasfilm (via Del Rey) is finally releasing a “making of” book that details story behind getting Empire made. A […]

Build-A-Bear Star Wars….While Supplies Last

I’m all for Star Wars novelty items, but turning the cast into stuffed bears is just a little too much for me. Thankfully these Bears are only available for a limited time. I have to admit the Han Solo bear is probably the coolest looking build-a-bear i’ve seen to date, but with that said I […]

Star Wars Environment

If you are a true Star Wars fan and you wonder what it would be like to be on one of the planets like Hoth or Helska surrounded by cold and technology then Norwegian island Spitsbergen is the place for you. Spitsbergen lies in the Arctic circle where the sun is always above the horizon […]


In the event of a dire situation — like, for example, finding out you killed the only woman you’ve ever loved while in the midst of a psychotic rage — press this button. Wish I had that as a ringtone. It’s pretty much how I feel every time I have to talk on the blasted thing.

Fanimation: Here's Why Jabba The Hut Took Out A Bounty On Han Solo

I usually cringe at the thought of a fan made animated short for movies I love, typically they are poorly constructed, lack imagination and basically suck all around, however this telling of why Jabba took out a bounty on Han Solo is actually very well produced Star Wars flick. The short animated flick tells the […]

Star Wars Covers Bohemian Rhapsody [Video]

If you’re a fan of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody then you’re in for a treat with this remake of the song based around Star Wars Episodes 1, 2 and 3. The song, renamed Midichlorian Rhapsody relies on footage from those films with all new words and an actually decent vocal recording, although not quite as good […]

Star Wars Tai Chi Starring Darth Vader [Video]

Sure Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers may have the dark side to aid them in their battles, but there’s nothing like staying nice and limber as well, that’s where a daily routine of Tai Chi comes into play. Notice the lazy Stormtroopers in the background who are doing little more than standing around. Watch as […]

How to Make Your Own Lightsaber

It is kind of ironic for a non-Stars Wars fan to be posting about it – two days in a row – but I can’t get over this DIY project that this guy shared on Slothfurnace. This is the item that gave the guy the inspiration to create his own lightsaber: the Obi Wan Kenobi […]
