Wrapped up in JadeCon preparations, I considered putting this off for about two seconds, before I realized just how much actually happened last week: Mark Hamill made his Star Wars weekends debut, two new actresses cast, leaked photos, you name it. In any case: Onward!

Star Wars Weekends

"If this is vodka I'll spill my guts about Episode VII" says Mark Hamill as he takes a sip of his drink on stage. #StarWarsWeekends

When he found out that Natalie Portman was his mother he said OMG she had a kid that looks like me? #AConversationWithMarkHamill

Mark also said there weren't enough girls in Star Wars. I knew there was a reason I liked him. :D

Episode VII and such
Oh man all I want in this world is Gwendoline and Lupita to just annihilate tons of people as epic lady-Jedi PLEASE JJ DO THEM JUSTICE
— Sam Maggs (@SamMaggs) June 2, 2014
Okay, JJ Abrams may continue, for now. But if any of those ladies end up in their underwear, we'll have Words.

I don't think I've ever had this many simultaneous notifications for any other casting announcement. Just saying.
— Alexander Gaultier (@Loyal_Imperial) June 2, 2014
It's possible I need to seek help. I got legitimately teared up over the #episodeVII casting news today.

EVERYONE REMAIN CALM *runs around screaming about the Lupita and GC casting*

I just really want to watch deliciously tall Brienne wipe the floor with deliciously tall Adam Driver. I will pay all the star bucks.

The TMZ pics…
Looking at the #StarWarsVII images TMZ acquired. Is the only reason TMZ didn’t expose the NSA was there weren’t celebrities involved?

I continue to have concerns about this new Star Wars movie. pic.twitter.com/PbLiC0CS5o

You know, that JJ tweet would have been cooler if he'd just nonchalantly dropped the name of the movie in his note to the internet.
— Bobby (@BobbyRobertsPDX) June 4, 2014
What does it say about the spoiler content of those pics when even Mr. Mystery Box himself is saying "well, no shit the Falcon is in it."

The Millennium Falcon will appear in Episode VII where we learn Han has joined the Kessel Run circuit and now endorses Space Beer. #StarWars

Warming to the idea of Mark Hamill as a weathered, battered, somewhat crazy Jedi Master.

Wait, what if #LukesBeard is just a metaphor? It is Hollywood, after all.

Josh Trank is the only Star Wars director who sounds like he could be a Star Wars character. Therefore I fully endorse this news.
— Chris Hewitt (@ChrisHewitt) June 4, 2014
Lucasfilm's strategy: Let's take every young director who has made a successful blockbuster and see what they have in mind for Star Wars.
— Lucas Shaw (@Lucas_Shaw) June 4, 2014
The Trank release said again that standalones go beyond the core characters of I – IX. I'd say Han is core, so where's that put Solo rumor?

.@sinKEVitch and I have decided to pitch a Jar-Jar Binks comic to Marvel when they get the license. It doesn't end well for Jar-Jar…

He's not canon, but the idea of putting Dash Rendar into a cannon intrigues me and I'd like to subscribe to your newsletter. #sweu

I found a #StarWars pen in my desk at work today and I keep talking about it…is it sad that was the highlight of my day? No. No it's not.

Whenever I see people "smoking" an e-cigarette, I always think they're playing a tiny space-saxophone from the #StarWars cantina band.

New #StarWars starts with Obi Wan showing up at Han and Leia's house and saying "It's your kids! Something's gotta be done about your kids!"
— Jack Oberyn Martell (@jackoapostrophe) June 4, 2014
The third STAR WARS standalone is totally going to be based on erotic fan fiction isn't it? That's the direction we're heading in.

Excuse me but if you're going to call a show WICKET it should include at least one Ewok
