Behold the GalacTac Project, an armor prototype being designed by AR5000 that happens to look just a tad like everyone’s favorite Star Wars bounty hunter. But look fast.
There’s suddenly a storm of outburts about a week-old interview that George Lucas had with Charlie Rose. It’s the one where he compared selling Lucasfilm to Disney as selling his children to “white slavers.” This was a stupid thing to say, but not really a new note for Lucas to hit.
You thought they were done releasing snifters of new Star Wars footage in endless trailers and TV spots, now that we’re just a week away from the release of The Force Awakens. Well, think again! A new international Chinese trailer has hit the web, and it’s positively filled with new snippets.
At a certain point in life, you learn about pleasure in moderation. A lot of something is great, until you get sick of it. A slow, steady enjoyment has always worked though and as a Star Wars fan, the aggressive plan for the franchise may sound good—but it also scares the living shit out of me.
There’s no shortage of Star Wars-related games on the iTunes and Google Play stores, but today finally sees the launch of the first official Star Wars app that will now serve as your one-stop portal for everything from news, to trivia, to even sound effects. Never again will you have to scramble to find a Wookiee roar…
Now that the Oculus Rift has made virtual reality not suck, countless companies are lining up to produce ground-breaking interactive content. But the most exciting could come from Industrial Light & Magic, the special effects company behind Star Wars, Jurassic World, and countless other blockbusters.
I keep getting my dreams shattered. When I was a kid I thought the Rebel Alliance hangar could have been a real stage but it was just one of many matte paintings, an example of ILM's visual sorcery. But the scene of the Emperor coming to the Death Star? I was absolutely, 100-percent convinced that it was real.
In a fun and slightly unusual fashion, the makers of Star Wars: The Force Awakens decided to reveal the names of new characters in the form of throwback trading cards. They look a lot like the playing cards released for the original movie. But they're, well, brand spanking new.
Every year, ILM and other tenants at San Francisco's Letterman Digital Arts Center take part in a sidewalk Chalk Art contest - and this year's competition had some wonderful Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Disney inspired art. Take a look!
"Through the Force, things you will see. The future, the past, old friends long gone." Someone has just found a disc full of behind the scenes, never before seen footage from Return of the Jedi. Two clips were uploaded to a Facebook page yesterday: a silent 59 seconds of R2-D2 repairing Luke’s X-Wing on Dagobah, and a…
Even if you're unsure if you want more Star Wars movies, Disney is going to start shoving them down your eyeballs come 2015. Along with the upcoming trilogy, Disney had previously confirmed that there would be spin off Star Wars movies as well. Now Disney says those spin off films will be 'origin stories' for its…
If you're not already excited for the next Star Wars Trilogy, get this: Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed the rumors that Disney will be making standalone movies based on individual Star Wars characters in addition to the three sequels already announced. That means you could be getting an origin Yoda movie or Han Solo…
What's worse than the Star Wars prequels? The Star Wars prequels ramrodded in your face with an extra dimension. Lucasfilm was planning on subjecting idiots with loose wallets to re-released 3D Young Anakin, but Disney says no more bullshit.
Any NMA take on Disney's acquisition of LucasFilm is bound to be very strange, but the finished product is even stranger than you could imagine. Backroom deals made in a strip club. Yoda strong arming George Lucas. Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the Avengers brawling with Yoda, Darth Vader and Han Solo. And Ronald…
We now know that the crazy-powerful Spyder III Arctic laser actually emits a visible, fearsome blue beam, just like a real lightsaber. George Lucas' lawyers saw this thing and fired off a cease and desist faster than Han shot Greedo.
For the first time, THX has shared some of the specifics behind their intense display evaluation program—the battery of tests a manufacture goes through to become THX certified. A fun read if you're a home theater geek: [HDGuru]
Thanks to Lucasfilm's nod of approval, ThinkGeek's got a treat for every Jedi's snuggly-wuggly-cuddly-just-ten-more-minutes-please-mom side. I wanna throw a sleepover to have an excuse to roll out lotsa these Tauntaun sleeping bags which "simulate the warmth of a Tauntaun carcass."
Feast your eyes—squinting a bit—on the leaked two-minute trailer that was briefly seen in YouTube and then pulled off just to be rescued at the last minute by a Polish Corvette, saved into an astromech droid, launched onto a desert planet, and found by us in a garage sale somewhere in Kraków.
