Hey guess what, there’s a new Star Wars movie coming out! And as the latest ploy to dominate the online conversation, the film has partnered with Twitter to create emoji-generating hashtags for three members of the Episode VII universe, just as a new teaser trailer hits at Star Wars Celebration.
When the new crossguard lightsaber showed up in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, many regarded it with scorn. Stephen Colbert was quick to come to the weapon's defense, but a lot of people still doubted its practicality. What we really needed was a demonstration. Now we've got one – and it's pretty convincing.
Iko Uwais, star of the phenomenal The Raid Indonesian action movie series, is the latest addition to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Watch Uwais in this fight scene from The Raid 2: Berendal and just try not to be excited.
Some potentially new Star Wars: The Force Awakens concept art has dropped, and it appears to reveal an updated version of the Empire's preferred vehicle for space combat. Take a grain of salt, be prepared for a potential spoiler, and then check it out below!
As we come to the end of 2014, year of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, we head into 2015... year of the mashups of said Star Wars trailer. We've featured some good ones here on io9, but this Lego-ified take might be one of the best.
For a character that we've seen roughly 2 seconds of, The Force Awakens' Ball Droid has created a weirdly excitable fandom. He's got his own parody twitter. People are tattooing him on themselves.

Here's a look at some of the coolest so far.
The wait is over, and a whole new saga has begun. Here's your first glimpse at the future of the Star Wars galaxy!

Greetings, my zealots of zip codes! Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and we denizens of the post-apocalypse still sit around a big meal and give thanks. For instance, I'm particularly grateful I'm no longer imprisoned by those horrible sentient apes. I'm also thankful roast ape tastes a bit like pork. Letter time!
Disney unveiled Episode VII's true name last week, and well... it's certainly a title for a Star Wars movie. Not a fan? Well now there's a neat little tool that lets you drum up a few Star Wars logos of your own.
The movie now known as Star Wars: The Force Awakens will premiere on December 18th, 2015. Looks like it's dropped the Episode VII moniker as well. Hmm. Could be better, but it also could be a lot worse. I kinda dig it. Thoughts?
