It must be Wednesday: A shocking and original new internet rumor about a Star Wars sequel trilogy (and 3-D)

So there’s a blog out there claiming that George is looking into making a sequel trilogy in 3-D because Cameron’s Avatar might make him – gasp – jealous. Sci Fi Wire has called bullshit, and I agree.

I mean, really: Avatar? Blogger, please.

Like abs? Like laundry? You’ll love Comic Con!

Yes, the reasons ladies enjoy San Deigo Comic Con all come down to there being hot guys (and vampires!) there. What more could a woman ask for than this:

Women will be rushing the stage, offering to do star Jake Gyllenhaal’s laundry on those washboard abs that he acquired for the film, since he spends much of it fighting, shirtless or both. Jake, we don’t want to know how to quit you.

Mmm, laundry. We love laundry. But does the Gyllenhaal come in a front-loading model?

Video: Hard up for The Clone Wars?

Well, TFN links some cruddy bootleg footage of The Clone Wars S2. (Did I mention there’s no sound?) Likely to be gone by morning, so watch it now or wait for them to drop it officially… Which maybe will also come in the morning*. For the sake of those of you dying to see it, I hope so, because that is some seriously bad bootleg.

(For the EU fans, note Holocron and… maybe… A Hapan queen. And apparently Mandos. Oh joy.)

* Though, this being footage from Disney, probably not until the SW Weekends thing is over. Two weekends to go.

The catchup: Links from Twitter

Here are some of the things I’ve micro-blogged over @clubjade in the last week or so.

Hollywood hyperbole. Sony’s Amy Pascal thinks that James Cameron’s Avatar could be the next Star Wars. I’m just trying to think of an upcoming genre movie I care less about than Avatar and failing miserably.

Duck and cover, Dallas. Will Texas be able to handle the squee produced by an official Twilight convention? We can only hope the lack of Robert Pattinson gives them a fighting chance.

Space blob approaches! Guys. GUYS. Waru is coming! I repent of all my Twilight mocking. Okay, not really.

But the real question is, who did they ship? Wired’s Scott Brown takes a brief look back at Sherlock Holmes fanfic.

Presented without comment. Guess who wants to write a Wonder Woman novel?

Morning news sarcasm: High culture, low culture

operaHigh culture, with bunnies. A friend of mine actually went to see this production of Richard Wagner’s Die Walküre involving lightsabers, but us uncultured barbarians are probably better off with Chuck Jones and DVDs.

High culture, geek edition. Does the world really need another Tolkien book? Apparently, yes.

It’s on TV! Variety’s Season Pass blog has a great interview with Lost‘s Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof. Sorry, no snark here: If you watch the show, this is a must-read.

Video games. Bad reviews make creators sad? Come on guys, you work for LucasArts. Embrace the pain.
