  2. Mark Hamill Talks Getting Back Into the Star Wars Saddle, Shows Off His Episode VII Facial Hair

    May The Force Be With You

    I know that's been the question on my mind: Will Episode VII Luke Skywalker have abandoned the beardless side of the Force to go down a path of righteous follicular majesty? The answer appears to be yes, at least judging by Mark Hamill's appearance in this promotional image for Disney World's Star Wars Weekends, which was taken on a break from Episode VII filming. Behind the cut, Hamill speaks about his preparation for the role, his relationship with Star Wars fans, and how the sequel trilogy's attitude towards spoilers differs from that of the original trilogy.

  7. The Women Of Star Wars Rebels: First Impressions Count

    Essay

    We're inching closer to the fall premiere of Star Wars Rebels. This fan is incredibly excited for the animated series that will be the first on-screen representation of the formidable Lucasfilm and Disney combination. The primary group of protagonists were recently introduced in a series of videos and articles over the past two weeks, and toys based on some of those characters were unveiled at the New York Toy Fair. I was pleased to learn two of the five members of the main cast are females.

It feels like a slap in the face.
