UPDATE: As many readers have pointed out, this is a bass guitar. Thanks for pointing it out! Original Post: This amazing custom Star Wars Millennium Falcon guitar isn’t the first Millennium Falcon guitar we have posted ( this one is ) but I think it is the best looking. If I played a musical instrument (I have no plans to start), I would probably play the guitar just so I could have a guitar this awesome.
Watch: Simon Pegg And Nick Frost Attempt To Recreate Star Wars « Spinoff Online – Covering TV, Film and Entertainment News DailyTuesday, March 15th, 2011 at 1:00pm Here’s the kind of movie promotion I can get behind: Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, stars and co-writers of the sci-fi comedy Paul — opening Friday in the United States! — have teamed with CollegeHumor for this hilarious “Star of the Week” video. It’s the product, we’re told, of the duo’s quixotic attempt to create a shot-for-shot remake of the entire Star Wars saga. The Shaun of the Dead stars predictably fail, completing just one scene of R2-D2 and C-3PO bickering on the desert planet of Tatooine.
What’s better than LEGO Star Wars figurines? How about the little guys pictured in cute and humorous poses? Yeah, I thought so too. Because we didn’t all learn what a bad-ass Yoda was in “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith”, this picture shows us what happens when Yoda goes all General Grievous. Who amongst us hasn’t wanted to ride in an AT-AT?
Lucas supervised a team of four editors working under extreme deadlines to get the film out on time. Although ostensibly an exterior, the Mos Eisley street was built on Stage 8. Extras were suited up in alien costumes and masks. Carrie Fisher tries on John Mollo's design for Princess Leia for the first time.
The art of lightsaber construction, like many things in life, generally passes down by word of mouth from Jedi Knights and Jedi Masters to their young Padawan learners. Oh sure, there are pamphlets and educational films, but there's no substitute for experience when creating a shaft of brilliant plasma . If you don't know a Jedi Master, don't fret: They also manufacture the weapons in China.
It almost goes without saying: Star Wars fans love the fuck out of Star Wars . They pore over ever single frame of even the most boring scenes, looking for odd characters, interesting architecture, or neat-looking future tech. And they do this for days, weeks, years of their lives.
When 7-year-old Katie Goldman was bullied at school for drinking from a Star Wars water-bottle (Star Wars "is for boys"), her mom was dismayed, and shared her feelings on her blog , along with pictures of the thoroughly adorable Katie. What happened next is my favorite kind of Internet Smurfs' Family Christmas moments: girl geeks from all over the world, including members of the Star Wars cast, sent letters of support to Katie, a kind of nerdy version of "It Gets Better," culminating with a shower of LucasFilm merch (Katie has generously offered to share this with her classmates, who apparently have rethought the gendering of Star Wars ). "I immediately had to say something," Taber said. "The whole theme of the 'Star Wars' universe is an anti-bullying theme. It's good versus evil, standing side by side with your friends, doing what's right.
I always wondered where Rakata Prime was compared to the rest of the galaxy. It seems illogical that RP would be so far into the unknown regions. It was once the capitol of the entire galaxy, an empire that included most of the older inhabited worlds, and more developed species (Humans included). You would figure that part of the galaxy would be the most mapped. Like others here who've said the same, I also gave up on the EU in the middle of the Vong invasion.
A friend of mine sent me this link today and dared me to watch all 10 minutes. For those too young to remember, Donny and Marie Osmond had a musical variety show in the ’70s called, appropriately enough, The Donny And Marie Show (she was “a little bit country” and he was “a little bit rock ‘n’ roll”). I was in elementary school at the time and actually watched it pretty regularly. But I don’t remember this incredible moment: Donny and Marie lead an all-star cast in this number.
In The Spotlight is a weekly showcase of art created with a particular iconic character in mind. These characters, fictional or real, are from famous literature, film, or various other forms media. What they all have in common is that they have an impact on artists and provide them with inspiration. Enjoy a new showcase every Friday! Jessica Hickman
With the latest chapter of the Harry Potter saga now in theaters, it is easy to forget that “long ago in galaxy far, far away” there was another Dark Lord, or rather a Dark “Sith Lord” that ruled others with evil powers. Sadly we will never know what would happen if these two forces faced off with one another. However, thanks to the good people at Smoosh.com, we can take a look at their evil existence and see which dark lord is the most vile and revered. As much as I enjoy Star Wars , Voldemort has my vote for the best baddie for killing “Robert Patterson” alone. But then, that is solely because I have never been a fan of the Twilight movies, nor the hype surrounding them. Read more a Smoosh , via Geekologie
