The blogside. It’s a hot button issue in many fandoms right now – just ask anyone hanging around Game of Thrones lately – and Bria at Tosche Station explains on why it’s important to have diversity in Star Wars.
Oh, Carrie! Carrie Fisher shares some ideas for Episode VII. They are very… Carrie.
Who wants in now? Star Wars alumni Warwick Davis, Samuel L. Jackson and Ray Park. Spinoffs for everyone?
Disney business. Bob Iger will remain at the helm of Disney through at least 2016. And with The Lone Ranger’s opening-weekend belly flop, Disney has plenty of reasons to be thankful for their recent acquisitions. One expert expects Disney to net about $733M for 2015′s Episode VII alone.

Ray Park, aka Darth Maul, recently shot a cameo in Fanboys, playing a “THX-guard leader.” (Security guard, I assume.) Carrie Fisher and Billy Dee Williams are also rumored to appear in the film.
