George Lucas Is Taking His Museum Away From Chicago

After a prolonged battle with San Francisco’s NIMBY empire, George Lucas announced two years ago that he would take his giant filmmaking museum project to the friendlier shores of Chicago.

Rogue One May Secretly Be A Star Wars Beach Party

In the realm of potential Star Wars stories, here’s one we never thought we’d write: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story may actually just be a huge beach party. A bunch of new photos from the film show Stormtroopers and Rebels alike soaking up the sun and frolicking in the surf.

That Scrapped Star Wars TV Show Would Have Starred A Sympathetic, Heartbroken Emperor 

While Star Wars Underworld will likely never make its way to production at this point, hearing details about what might have been in this exploration of the seedy underbelly of Coruscant is still a fascinating prospect. Case in point? The revelation of Emperor Palpatine not just being in the show, but him apparently being… sympathetic?

Mark Hamill Continues To Justify Twitter's Existence 

If there’s any Twitter account that’s actually worth following, it’s Mark Hamill’s. He embodies positive fan interaction, and perhaps nothing is a better example of that then his response to a female Luke Skywalker cosplayer.

Palpatine Says 'Meh' To This Lego Star Wars: Freemaker Adventures Trailer, But We Disagree

Star Wars Rebels is in between seasons. The new movie is several months away. How do you fill that Star Wars void in your heart? Maybe with Disney XD’s new show, Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, which just revealed a new trailer.

So You Want To Join The Empire: The Final Lessons

Over the past year, I’ve been documenting how to build a suit of Stormtrooper armour, and a little on how to go about wearing it once you’ve completed it. This week, I’d like to close out the column by taking a look at the bigger picture: what have we learned from this little journey?
