The continuing adventures of Millicent the cat (on Tumblr)

It’s been a year since Pablo Hidalgo introduced us to one of The Force Awakens most important bits of fanon: General Hux’s cat, Millicent. And I never did get around to doing a followup to last year’s post on the matter. So here’s another batch of great stuff from Tumblr.

We’ve got two more The Force Awakens commentary track previews today. In the first, at Yahoo, J.J. Abrams reveals that it was a suggestion from Selma director Ava DuVernay that lead to a key shot during Rey and Kylo’s duel. The second, at IGN, is about how Rey and Finn’s initial meeting changed.

Second excerpt from Aftermath: Life Debt features pregnant Leia, the Force

aftermath-life-debtMashable has our second excerpt from Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Life Debt, featuring a pregnant Leia Organa trying to commune with the Force.

We already knew Han Solo and Chewbacca played a part in the book – in addition to the title and the Millennium Falcon on the cover, they show up in the first excerpt – but this is our first look at Leia in the time period immediately following Return of the Jedi.

On Twitter, Wendig confirms that the Leia chapter isn’t an interlude, and that it is missing some formatting.

(Dare I hope that Ben is born here and we learn if his last name is Solo or Organa? Not to mention why his name is Ben? But, as Wendig says, we must manage our expectations.)

Aftermath: Life Debt will be out in hardcover and eBook on July 19.

Apparently all it takes is some intense staring in a $2B movie to go from zero to hero in This is Madness, the StarWars.com character tournament.

After disappointing showings in previous years, Luke Skywalker not only made it to the finals, but won the whole thing, defeating previous champions Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi along the way. Newbies Rey and Kylo Ren also made quite a showing, facing off against Luke and Vader in the final four matchups.

Abrams tells the ‘truth’ behind Kylo Ren’s helmet stand

tfa-kylo-ashesIn a striking blow to absurdity, J.J. Abrams tells Entertainment Weekly that the dusty substance Kylo Ren places his helmet on in The Force Awakens isn’t Millicent the cat’s litter box, but some emo ‘ashes of his enemies’ bullshit. Fandom is disappointed in you, Abrams. Millicent is disappointed in you.

Next up: Kylo’s dark side secret for avoiding helmet hair? We can but hope.
