Personally I'm just happy it's not a Frozen sequel as was previously rumored, but all this other news about the movie is great, too! A new story full of goblins and fairies! CGI from Industrial Light and Magic! Kristen Chenoweth and Alan Cumming in the cast! Yes please.Read More
"Meesa here to make you question everything you ever loved!"
You consider yourself damn lucky I didn't use a pic of Jar Jar for this post, TMSers. As for Dorkly's comic... I can't tell you whether there's Jar Jar or not. I don't want to spoil it. The last panel packs quite a comical punch, and you should go in blank.Read More
Basically the status quo at this point.

Surprising no one.
Need another thing to be mad at George Lucas about? It's Okay to Be Smart has an video deconstruction of what's wrong with the science behind fictional space battles and why it's all his fault. Or you could accept that some scientific concessions made by space battles in movies are there as audio/visual cues for the audience's benefit for filmmaking reasons, and others could be explained by science so advanced it seems impossible to our current, mostly non-spacefaring civilization. Your choice.Read More

"The shield is down! Commence attack on the Lucas main reactor!"
George Lucas and his wife are planning on building a cultural arts museum devoted to his legacy, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti really, really wanted them to build it in his fair city. So he took to Twitter with an obviously well-thought out and totally foolproof campaign, perhaps hoping that Lucas would not be able to repel hashtags of that magnitude. It definitely went extremely well—for people who like hearing snarky jokes about L.A.Read More
I will make it legal!When the Lucasfilm acquisition happened, Disney decided to end Cartoon Network's Star Wars: The Clone Wars in order to kickstart a new animated series on Disney XD, Star Wars Rebels.

And then if we get the super-high-tech-laser from Paycheck, could we watch Firefly, too?
Everyone likes watching Star Wars. They're awesome movies, and I think we've all had that majorly trippy moment when we realize "A long time ago" means that everything we're watching happened in the past. But if it was so long ago, and so far away, that the light is reaching us now-- does that mean we could theoretically watch Star Wars live?Read More
