Disney continues to release the super-fun Star Wars animated series Forces of Destiny online and, in one of several new episodes, Rey, Finn, Han and Chewie have a little trouble with the Falcon.
Saudi Arabia’s under-secretary for educational curricula and programs has found himself sacked after an official social studies textbook ran with a photo of King Faisal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the country’s leader from 1964 to 1975, seated next to none other than Jedi master Yoda.
Who knew that Yoda, Star Wars’ true master of The Force, would be so damn scared of “rats with wings”? Alas, that’s what we discover in Bad Lip Reading’s full-length Star Wars track, “SEAGULLS! (Stop It Now).”
Just months after adding “Scooby Snack” to its hallowed pages, the Oxford English Dictionary has released its latest update. Among the 500-plus new terms gaining entrance: “clickbait,” “kegerator,” “vom,” “YOLO,” and “Yoda.” The list also included tributes to author Roald Dahl, born 100 years ago this month.
We know that Luke and Rey will be spending time together in Star Wars Episode VIII. And we can only hope it proves the fan theory that Luke really only knows how to train a Jedi the same way he was trained.
Jedis are supposed to be the wise peacekeepers of the galaxy, eschewing personal belongings and human desires. But they’d surely make an exception for this life-size 32-inch tall Yoda figure from Sideshow Collectibles, even if they had to sell their lightsabers to afford one.
Well this is certainly convenient. If you’ve always wanted to be a Jedi (or a Sith) but weren’t born with an abundance of Midichlorians, someone has finally bottled the Force and will happily sell it to you for a mere $16.
We’re not seeing a lot of new Yoda toys this Force Friday, and that’s probably because we all remember the character dying during The Return of the Jedi. There is one, though, and with its intense set of animated eyes it will stare deep, and uncomfortably, into your soul.
First revealed back in February shortly after Toy Fair 2015, we now know quite a few more details about Spin Master’s interactive Legendary Yoda toy thanks to Walmart who’s finally made it available for pre-order and officially available on September 4—AKA Force Friday.
Continuing the recent decorating trend of glowing stuff smashing through walls we now have three of the most popular Star Wars characters joining the fray. Designed more for kids or gaming rooms these 3D heads are completely self-contained so there's no unsightly power cords to be hidden, and thanks to LEDs inside…
For some reason a life-sized stuffed version of Darth Vader or Obi-Wan Kenobi just doesn't seem as appealing as these life-sized plush versions of Yoda and Wicket the Ewok. But that's probably because one is an adorable Muppet, and the other looks essentially like a cuddly walking teddy bear.
The new Star Wars movie is still months and months away, and Disney did a fantastic job of keeping tie-in toys and other merchandise hidden away at Toy Fair this past weekend. There was the occasional glimpse of what will be hitting toy stores this fall, though, and Spin Master has just posted a short teaser showing…
There always seems to be a steady stream of Star Wars merchandise hitting stores, but with a new film on the horizon in 2015, the Disney marketing machine is quickly ramping up to overdrive. Even Adidas wants in on the action with its upcoming Star Wars Originals collection that includes these wonderful Vader kicks.…
What did Yoda do between Revenge of the Sith and Return of the Jedi? We'll find out in an upcoming episode of Star Wars Rebels when we encounter Yoda once again—sort of.
