I’ve avoid saying much about my spoiler policy here on Club Jade, mainly because I firmly believe in taking these things on a case-by-case basis. But there is one hard fact here: I will not treat officially released material as spoilers.
That doesn’t mean I’ll spoil something that’s in The Force Awakens novelization or art book, on the chance they come out before the film does. But any officially released publicity material is fair game. That means trailers, commercials, press releases and anything else that Lucasfilm very clearly wants people to know.
Finally, a box tag that might beat the ‘slashing action’ Obi-Wan. Since last time, Hasbro woke the dragon (again,) we talked a lot about spoilers in general (no actual spoilers below,) and those Star Wars phonics workbooks got a workout. Also, a doggy!
Steve Sansweet’s Rancho Obi-Wan will highlight fan contributions to Star Wars fandom in their first book, Inspired by the Force: Star Wars Fan Artifacts & Art, which will debut at Celebration Anaheim in April. It’s intended to act as “an exhibit guide,” so the Rancho Celebration exhibit will also be fan-heavy this time:
The Rancho Obi-Wan Experience exhibit will feature fan objects and art starting in the late 1970s through today, from an airbrushed van tire cover and hand-tooled leather backgammon board to a Chewbacca tissue box cover and bird house, from amazing art mash-ups based on a print by Goya and a painting by Picasso to bizarre limited edition figurines made by urban artists.
The Rancho Obi-Wan exhibit at Celebration VI featured several fan creations – including one by a Jader – but this will no doubt be an even greater variety. I just hope they have more floor space this time!
In any case, the book will be $25 and pre-orders for pickup at the con will begin in March.
Since last time, we’ve had Rebels come back, Star Wars #1 come out, our first spin-off casting rumors, of course, George Lucas George Lucasing. In other words, it was busier than I thought, so: ONWARD!
Podcast marathon to raise funds to fight childhood cancer. Teresa Delgado, of The Star Wars Report and Jedi News, will be among those helping to raise money for CURE tomorrow.
We’re back! Well, everyone else is back. Tweets, yay.
Yesterday, we learned the names of the characters in the trailer, so you can imagine what’s pulling the most weight within. Onward!
So. We’ve already covered the trailer – twice! Here are the rest of last week’s tweets, as well as more trailer tweets, because really, what did you expect? (No, that’s not an invitation. Mansplaining inception has already been achieved!)
