John Boyega revealed a gift from Rian Johnson on his Instagram, and a The Last Jedi hint – of sorts. The illustration expresses Boyega’s “frustration with the most complex Star Wars lingo.” So what could a bio-hexacrypt be, and what does it have to do with Finn? Tumblr user Bripenguin13 has a degree in cell biology and one (possible) explaination.
Meanwhile, if you’re still poking at The Last Jedi title, Johnson has an answer. (And more.)
So last night on the ForceCast, they were theorizing that Jon Favreau was voicing one of the mystery Mandalorians we saw in The Clone Wars S2 preview. Today, Yakface (via) are theorizing that it could be Mark Hamill. Interesting theories, but that last one sounds an awful lot like Favreau. On the other hand, there do seem to be two very different Mando voices going on in that trailer…
In less theory-based news, The Clone Wars is in TV Guide’s Sci-Fi Preview. Please join me in boggling that TV Guide is still around.
UPDATE: Whoever it may may be, it is not Mark Hamill.
Whatever this person is on, I think they need to provide enough for us all to share. (Although I suspect this is more of what’s actually going on here.)
And I bet he enjoys it. In any case, all the evidence is gathered and presented in text format… And yet still no Wookieepedia entry? Tisk tisk.
Warning: Nearly every link in this post contains gigantic Invincible spoilers.
Last night at #eu‘s Invincible chat, a few people recalled passages from Denning’s Tatooine Ghost that seem to be deliberately referenced in Tempest and Invincible – and they lead to a very intriguing theory about what the events of Legacy of the Force actually prevented.
Crazy fan theory? Or layered foreshadowing of the first order? No matter what, there’s a hell of a fanfic plot bunny in there if anyone wants it.
Fantastically bizarre celebrity art blogger 14 graces us today with George Lucas’s Hair Unfurls to Reveal A Secret Interdimensional Vortex Allowing Him To Communicate Telepathically With An Ancient Diety From A Galaxy Far, Far Away. Quite flattering, all things considered.
Actually, it reminds me of this totally bizarre conversation I had with some chick on the long-dead Fanfix.com boards – she claimed that George Lucas had gotten hold of the Star Wars story through arcane means (i.e., not a pastiche of Kurosawa, Campbell, Buck Rodgers and other such etcetera) and that he also had gotten it all wrong. (Her fanfiction, of course, was right.) She was a known nutcase and probably a troll, but I remain amused.
They’re not just for disgruntled EU fans any more! Was the Death Star attack an inside job?
Like many citizens, I have many questions that I would like answered: was the mighty Imperial government really too incompetent to prevent a handful of untrained nerf-herders from destroying one of their most prized assets? Or are they hiding something from us? Who was really behind the attack? Why did they want the Death Star destroyed? No matter what the answers, we have a problem.
If there’s one thing that Episode 3 previews have taught us, it’s that fashion moves at a snail’s pace in the galaxy far, far away. This happens to explain something that’s been bothering EU fans since Union:
What the hell is up with Luke’s hair?
Finally, we have an answer! It may be more than a decade after Return of the Jedi, but GFFA fashion is still on 1987:
