George Lucas attempts to ‘improve’ Star Wars, fans call for boycott

Haven’t we learned our lesson about changing classics by now? According to Deadline, some fans are up in arms about George Lucas’ upcoming Blu-Ray release of Star Wars. He’s once again making some major changes, having Darth Vader yell ‘Noooo! NOOOOO!’ when the Emperor is torturing Luke, digitizing some aspects of Ewoks and messing about […]

Trisha’s Take: Using the Force as a force of good

When Carrie Goldman wrote about her daughter Katie who was teased when she brought her Star Wars-themed water bottle to school because “Star Wars is for boys, and not girls,” and the Internet and cast and crew members from “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” proved that was most definitely not the case, I kept a […]

How Padme Amidala, Yoda, and the Internet are standing up to bullies for a Star Wars-loving mini-geekette

No matter what kind of geek you are, there’s something that all of us share in common which makes us different from aficionados, hobbyists, and dabblers. When we were younger, we got teased and bullied. A lot. In his book The Happiest Days of Our Lives, writer/actor Wil Wheaton wrote extensively of how being a […]

Black Star Warrior needs your help, badly

Once again, Google informed me that the latest and final part of the Black Star Warrior documentary is online, and this one has an appeal for help at the end: As the YouTube comments have so far stated, this is really tripping my “This is fake” buttons, but I also agree that it’s so well-done […]

Eyes on E3: Star Wars Multiplayer Demo

A brief glimpse of what is to come. So far, most of the trailers coming out for The Old Republic were solo missions, or co-op. They’ve showcased the different worlds, the different character classes, the voice acting, the tricked out ships. So now, we get to see multiplayer combat: While it may  seem lackluster to […]

Prefixmag points us to a galaxy far, far away, and apparently Daft Punk, Snoop Dogg, Ciara, David Beckham, Ian Brown, the Gallagher brothers and Jay Baruchel are hanging out there, watching The World Cup (does this make it the Worlds cup?). Luckily, Adidas got the whole thing on film. This, part of Adidas’ ‘Originals’ ad […]
