    The Empire Strikes Back Uncut: The Jedi Kids Are Alright

    We love getting new scene submissions for The Empire Strikes Back Uncut, because we know every re-creation is going to bring together a whole different cast of props, costumes, effects, and characters. And boy do we get characters. Some of our favorite performances are from the youngest Jedi who are filling big, adult-sized acting shoes. […]

    Han and Leia: Why They’re Perfect Together

    I first saw A New Hope when I was four years old, and although I loved it, my thought process about it admittedly didn’t go much beyond ROBOTS SPACE EXPLOSIONS COOL! By the time The Empire Strikes Back was released, I was an oh-so-sophisticated second grader who was beginning to recognize the importance of human […]

    Marching with the Maker: A 501st Legion Reflection

    The recent holidays brought back some very special Star Wars memories to me. It was only six years ago on a cold New Year’s morning that over 200 armored men and women were gathered outside a hotel in Pasadena, clustered in squads that waited anxiously as large tour buses came and went like Imperial shuttles […]

    Call for Star Wars Commercial By Fans, for Fans

    If you haven’t heard, this fall we’re getting Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith released back-to-back, in glorious 3D. As part of that release, Lucasfilm has joined Forces (sorry, inevitable) with Pringles to help promote the release of both films and everyone’s favorite snack. Now, I know what you’re thinking: cross-promotional marketing […]

  • Hang On to Your Helmet — The Holidays Are Over!

    For roughly the past month it’s been the same: “We can rethink that floorplan after the holidays.” “I can have the answers you need after the holidays.” “We’ll send those links after the holidays.” “After the holidays we’ll be ready to revisit this.” “The document will be completed for you after the holidays.” Etc. etc. […]

    Holidays On Ice

    December 25th – provided that the world has not ended per the Mayan calendar – I’ll be flying to Hoth. More specifically, I’ll be flying to Cordova, Alaska for the holidays, where I used to live before I came to work at Lucasfilm. It will be dark and cold and icy, and some of my […]

    The Empire Strikes Back Uncut: The Foodie Force

    Star Wars fans love to eat. Or, at least it looks like it, according to all these pizza slices, green pea piles, and whipped dessert toppings found in the scenes submitted for The Empire Strikes Back Uncut. The Empire Strikes Back‘s many planets give fans ample reason to dig into their scene-setting skills: Hoth, Cloud […]

    Christmas Troopers: A Little Naughty, Mostly Nice

    There’s something about this time of year that brings out the kid in all of us (which is great, because a guy in Stormtrooper armor isn’t fooling anyone the other eleven months of the year). The holidays are a silly time — one for crazy sweaters, sing-songy music, and wishlists of toys (figurative or literal). […]

    The Saga Continues…

    Someone pinch me. I need a confirmation that I’m awake, because recently I read that new Star Wars films are in the works. I don’t remember finding an old lamp and rubbing it, and I don’t think my prayers from when I was 12 years old count, so I’m not sure how exactly my wish […]

    Black Milk Star Wars: Fan Fashion

    I grew up in the ’80s. I’ll never forget when I was a kid, going down to the store with my loose change to get the latest bubble gum cards from my favorite movie — Return of the Jedi. I would spend hours pouring over all the classic cards in my collection, looking at all […]

    Her Universe: An Army of Fangirls!

    A fangirl revolution started a few years ago when we launched Her Universe. It was not a single effort by me or my team, it was a united effort by an army of fangirls — starting with Star Wars fans. We were tired of settling for Star Wars clothes made for men and boys and […]
