Director J.J. Abrams and writer Lawrence Kasdan send greetings from London.
The day’s merchandise offerings. It’s the true meaning of the season! Santa Maul would be proud.
Heir to the Empire and Darth Bane: Path of Destruction eBooks on sale for $1.99. A May the 4th special!
Empire is teasing the May the 4th Rebels trailer. They say it’ll air on Disney XD at 11.40 a.m.
Another helmet-based art exhibit in showing in Los Angeles this week. The Star Wars Legion exhibit runs May 2-4 at the Robert Vargas Gallery.
I’m not really seeing anything exciting in the new products, but that’s a) not my beat and b) there’s still a day left to the event. So hopefully there’s something more exciting waiting in the wings. (Or not, as the case may be. Oh well.)
TV Guide’s first look at The Goldberg’s Star Wars episode. The Return of the Jedi centric episode will air May 6 on ABC.
I thought it was odd that Lucasfilm was collaborating with CBS’ The Big Bang Theory for a Star Wars Day episode instead of a show on Disney-owned ABC, but today we get word that The Goldbergs will have one as well – on May 6th:
The episode sees Adam (Sean Giambrone) and Erica (Hayley Orrantia) encounter elaborately costumed Star Wars fans, including Reno 911′s Thomas Lennon, while waiting in line at the Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi opening.
Now I have to wonder… Will NBC (Community? Parks and Rec?) or Fox (Brooklyn Nine-Nine?) get in on the Star Wars action as well?
