Sorry, May 4, but May 25th is the real
Star Wars day. Another anniversary is upon us, with A New Hope (then just Star Wars, of course) coming out on this date 37 years ago. And 31 years ago, we saw the release of Return of the Jedi. Of course the two bookends of the original trilogy would have birthdays regardless, but it’s especially meaningful this year as we know that production on Episode VII is underway..
Congratulations also go to Nanci and Brian of the fansite
Tosche Station, who got married today!

So we had the conversation and I got hired.” Star Wars from junk.

Mark Hamill had his Reddit Ask Me Anything this afternoon. Despite a late start and a brief troll issue, it seemed to go swimmingly.
He didn’t say much about Episode VII – sorry, no announcements! This was to promote
the Make-A-Wish contest. Though of course he was asked about the Fisher report from the other day:
The only character I know for sure is returning is my friend R2-D2. He hasn’t stopped beeping about it.
Haha. I’m not being coy, really. When I find something out, I’ll let everybody know. But nothing has been decided yet.
I don’t know if anyone actually believes that, but hey, it’s not like we can blame the guy for playing it cool. Below the cut, power convertors, facial hair, keeping secrets and much, much more.
