In the old expanded universe, the Ewoks sort of just went about their business on Endor after the second Death Star was destroyed. Disney’s new canon, however, imagines something a little different—and it’s ridiculous.
Yesterday we mistakingly declared that a bouquet of tiny dinosaurs was the best Valentine’s Day gift—we were wrong. If you really want someone to know you love them, or you’re sorry, or you’re trying to rule the galaxy, it’s better said with a bouquet of assorted Star Wars characters.
We’re still recovering from last week’s Star Wars Celebration 2015, and we’ve got another fun video for you: a tour of all the costumes, props, and vehicles. Keep your eyes peeled for a look at the new Imperial Stormtroopers, plus all kinds of amazing original props. (Is that ... a Wookiee dreadlock?)
David Mizejewski works for the National Wildlife Federation in his day job, but in his spare time he's apparently a rather avid fan of Return of the Jedi's fluffy guerilla fighters, the Ewoks. In celebration of World Ewok Appreciation Day (!?), he shared pictures of his very own elaborate Ewok village display.
Yub and nub, my friends. Lego will release a massive, almost-2,000-piece Ewok Village set this September. It'll run you $250, is over a foot tall, and will include a speederbike, 15 minifigures (some of which have reversible faces with different expressions — angry Leia is amazing), and an Imperial helmet drum kit.
This week in the world of cartoons, everything took a week off. Ultimate Spider-Man, Transformers: Prime, Adventure Time, Regular Show and TMNT are off, while Teen Titans Go! returned for its second week. Due to this bizarre scheduling anomaly, enjoy the new TTG! clips and a look back at some old school Star Wars…
Given that many things in the authentic Star Wars universe are terrible, it should be no surprise that many things in the Expanded Universe — those tales from the novels, comics, cartoons and all other non-movie Star Wars entities — are also terrible. But since the Expanded Universe is so damn big, its wretchedness…
Nowadays there are entire cosplay communities devoted to dressing up as Star Wars characters, but folks in the late 1970s and early 1980s didn't have the internet for immediate pointers.
Have you ever imagined what would happen if the Ewoks sang The Cranberries? Certainly, such a universal musing is shared by all members of the human race, but Alex Kropinak has actually gone so far as to render this tableau in this blissfully stupid animation. Not going to lie, on my fifth re-watch here. Hat tip to…
Can't decide which furry character from Star Wars lore you want to attend Comicon as this year? Fear not ladies (and creepy cross-dressing cos-play dudes), here's your answer.
Becoming a Jedi Knight is not unlike being conscripted into the Mickey Mouse Club. You need a fresh face, a pleasant demeanor, preternatural "it factor," and voilà! You're suddenly living inside a space ziggurat with Samuel L. Jackson.
If you've ever seen Return of the Jedi, you probably walked away with the impression that the Ewoks are only capable of hoots, hollers, and the occasional "yub nub."
Something tells me the Ewoks may have gone over better if the forest moon of Endor (and all of its denizens) were made out of gingerbread and a metric ton of fondant. Also, the Empire's machinations might have actually worked if they constructed the Death Star entirely out of Rice Krispies Treats. This ridiculously…
last night's episode of How I Met Your Mother, wild-eyed lothario Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) discovers that his girlfriend does not like Ewoks. Through an unlikely series of events, Barney ends up explaining his unified theory of Ewok fandom to a a college field trip. It doesn't make a lick of sense, but…
I think I'm giving Anthony Herrera the dad of the year title. Why? Because when he brought his kids to Sequoia National Park he told them Ewoks lived there. Of course, his kids ended up being disappointed when they didn't see any Ewoks there. But don't worry! Herrera added Ewoks to the background of his family…
The coolest parents in the history of the world asked artist Michael LaRiccia to paint a gorgeous Star Wars mural, depicting a village of Ewoks descending on their baby. Watch the lovely timelapse video of this Endor wonderland coming together.
In 1982, a 15-year-old Warwick Davis starred in a short promotional video about his tryout for Return of the Jedi. This comic oddity, Return of the Ewok, was never released and featured Boba Fett and Darth Vader hunting Wicket.
Caprica and Stargate Universe are both circling the drain, ratings-wise, but Syfy has already greenlit another Battlestar Galactica spinoff. Pointless TV spinoffs have a long history, littered with horrible failures. Here are the 9 most unnecessary science fiction TV spinoffs.
Gary Kurtz was George Lucas' partner in making the first two Star Wars films, but they had a huge falling-out after Empire Strikes Back. Now, for the first time, he's explained what went wrong with Star Wars.
