Today in The Clone Wars: Sad panda edition

Nab the widget for your own site. If only it was scalable…

Lucasfilm pushes the ‘girl power’ angle with Ashoka, though I’m not sure that headline is the inference they’re looking for. Speaking of our latest leading lady, there was a TCW segment with Ashley Eckstein on Entertainment Tonight the other day, but I’m not finding it on their site. Why you gotta be like that, ET? It’s 2008, and you are syndicated: Embrace the web already!

Less frustrating: TFN has some sample pages from the new Visual Guide, while MTV previews the movie/tv series’ upcoming game tie-ins.

The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia: Look at the size of that thing!

Wow. Are they going to do yearly updates, like the World Book? I’m actually expecting some sort of online (Hyperspace?) component/Databank revamp. Watch your back, Wookieepedia!

Whatever the case, Random House currently lists them as hardcover, with a release date as November 4, and the price at $75.

UPDATE: TFN has someone who got a few more details from Del Rey, namely that there will be ” full-color artwork.”

Amazon jumped the gun on new encyclopedia

Shocking! TFN has word from Steve Sansweet about the appearance of The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia on Amazon:

“The last time Amazon did this it was for a book that had been killed six months before. Pablo Hidalgo and I are working on a project together. Everything else–including the sole author credit–is either wrong or speculation. And it’s too early to talk about right now.”

Amazon has a date for new Encyclopedia

Discovered today on Amazon: A listing for The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia by Steve Sansweet and due out in November. Amazon has never been the most reliable source on the block, but we do know that an updated Encyclopedia is in the works, and a pre-Christmas date is certainly likely. Hopefully this is a sign we’ll be getting an official update on the book soon. (via)
