Hidalgo, Taylor to host stages at Celebration VI

The Clone Wars’ Obi-Wan, James Arnold Taylor, will be commanding the Main Stage. LucasArts’ David Collins will handle the Digital Stage, while author and Internet Rockstar Pablo Hidalgo will be hosting the Behind-the-Scenes Stage. We’ll be seeing a lot of Pablo, I expect.

Trailer: James Arnold Taylor’s “Talking to Myself”

Voice actor James Arnold Taylor, (Obi-Wan Kenobi on Star Wars: The Clone Wars) recently posted a trailer for his one-man show, “Talking to Myself”. Teasing his eighty-minute show, this clip covers some of different parts of his act. If you’ve seen his show from Star Wars weekends at Walt Disney World (or seen video of that half-hour show online last year), these bits aren’t new, but it is always entertaining. Hopefully Taylor will bring his show to Celebration VI!

Star Wars Miniland opens at Legoland California

The official ribbon cutting was done by Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher, and Carson Weiner, a young Star Wars fan representing the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Video: Another look at S3 of The Clone Wars

S2? S3? Don't ask me.

StarWars.com has a new Clone Wars preview video today, ‘Truly Cinematic,’ featuring Dee Bradley Baker, Matt Lanter, James Arnold Taylor, and Ashley Eckstein. There are peeks at a lot of the footage that was revealed at Celebration, but I’m not well-vested enough to know if anything else is all-new.

In the news: Fisher takes ‘Drinking’ to New York, Dirty-minded neighbors peg Prowse film as porn

Buns over Broadway. Carrie Fisher’s one-woman show ‘Wishful Drinking’ opened on Broadway this weekend, and the reviews are in. Not too shabby! Let’s not forget the woman herself is still blogging away… And not pulling any punches, either.

Why is the goofy news always from the U.K.? Two stories involving David Prowse… In the first, his car breaks down. Okay, maybe not so wacky, except the part where it used to belong to Kenny Baker, thus allowing all the ability to write a silly headline. In the second, a house where the actor was filming a drama was raided by police after neighbors reported the film crew as being there to shot a porn flick.

Behind the CGI. The New York Daily News has a nice piece profiling the Clone Wars voice talent.

In Concert. Naturally the tour is getting some (digital) ink; L.A. Times’ Hero Complex talked to several folks, including host Anthony Daniels; Pheonix New Times’ Benjamin Leatherman was not particularly impressed, though he did give the masses a say. (Ahh, Twitter. Removing the journalist’s need to actually talk to people for comment since 2006.) As for the places where it’s yet to come, Chicago Now’s Geek to Me and The Ottawa Citizen have taken notice.
