Ready to take your furry fetish to the next level – but not quite ready to rock the full Wookiee suit? Hot Topic is now offering a fuzzy Chewbacca hoodie and Chewbacca fur hat. For those whose obsession may be more dimutive, the Ewok knit hat.
The Black List is an annual vote that picks the best unproduced scripts circulating around Hollywood. Among the top vote-getters this year is Evan Susser and Van Robichaux’s ‘Chewie,’ which Movieline describes as “A satirical behind the scenes look at the making of Star Wars through the eyes of Peter Mayhew.”
Previous Black List selections that went on to be filmed include Diablo Cody’s Juno and Aaron Sorkin’s The Social Network.
All is revealed. Star Matthew Morrison told Jimmy Kimmel that the Wookiee will appear on Glee’s Christmas episode, which features a homage to the
awful holiday specials of yore. At least he’s not going to sing.
A very Star Wars engagement. This unnamed Bay Area Jedi/Sith couple put aside their differences for a Star Wars themed photo shoot by photographer Michael James. We have every faith those crazy kids will make it work, one way or another. (via)
Stunts. ‘Darth Vader’ submits a claim for 1,000 square meters of Ukraine. Good luck with that.
TV. Why is Chewbacca hanging out with the Glee folks? On second thought, having finally given up on the show this season, I don’t want to know.
People. James Earl Jones received an honorary Oscar.
Blast from the past. The internet has unearthed a 1978 interview with Mark Hamill.
Wednesday brings a new Star Wars Adventures digest, Chewbacca and the Slavers of the Shadowlands, featuring a tale from the youth of our favorite Wookiee.
And, not so much: If you were waiting for Sean Williams’ adaption of The Force Unleashed II to come out in paperback, it’ll be in stores next Tuesday.
On Jimmy Kimmel last night…
Sick of trudging through the entirety of A New Hope just to see your favorite Wookiee? Your prayers have been answered! (via)
We’re just under a week out from the Clone Wars finale on April 1. I’m sure the media blast has only just begun, but here’s what we have so far.
Lucasfilm held a screening of the season finale at the Presidio Friday evening. Jeff Ellis send the ForceCast a spoiler-free report.
And over at Big Shiny Robot, Bryan Young talks about getting rid of his cable and (mostly) the annoyance of different air dates and times. It’s certainly made a lot of folks cranky this week!
And after the finale, if you happen to be in San Francisco and/or attending WonderCon, there will be a panel there on the 2nd with Filoni, Mayhew, and Ashley Eckstein! Rumor has it they might show a peek at S4. And Pablo is hosting it.
The New York Times reports that everyone’s favorite Wookiee will appear in The Clone Wars two-episode season finale on April 1. Peter Mayhew will be doing the voice honors:
To portray Chewbacca for “The Clone Wars,” Mr. Mayhew was not required to don the outfit at all. (“I was doing it in my own clothing,” he said.) However, he did record dialogue for the character, having learned over the years to emulate the blend of bear growls and other animal noises used to create Chewie’s voice.
It’s a small galaxy after all, I suppose.
Meanwhile, over at Entertainment Weekly, there’s new video of Tarkin.
