First The Force Unleashed, now The Holiday Special? How many fans does Vanity Fair have over there? (It is by the same writer, contributing editor Frank DiGiacomo. He even mentioned the Wookieepedia back in May.) That said, the article is a pretty interesting look at the special’s development and production.
The only video Adult Swim has on their site for Robot Chicken Star Wars II! Curses! Well, at least we can watch an Ackbar scene at StarWars.com.
This morning, StarWars.com takes Hyperspace members back to the making of The Empire Strikes Back with The Last Corellian Shipyard, an article reprinted from the UK Star Wars magazine (at least if Wookieepedia is to be believed) on the the full sized Falcon set built for The Empire Strikes Back by actual shipbuilders in Wales.
For those without Hyperspace, your consolation prize is a look back at the Falcon in video games.
