These two THX mini-docs – one on soundtracks (above) and another on the system itself, have emerged from the laserdisc era to appear on Youtube. Historical! (via)
No comics, but you shouldn’t have to look too hard to find The Sounds of Star Wars, which I’ve been seeing in stores for few weeks now. (Your mileage may vary, but Amazon is shipping it.)
Also, if you’re looking forward to The Force Unleashed II (out October 5,) there’s an excerpt. (Also Dynasty of Evil, an odd choice seeing as it’s been out for a while, but there’s a paperback imminent and I suppose they’re trying something new..?)
The con is over, but with so much going on there’s still a lot of coverage coming out from StarWars.com and the fans. (Like the video above.) Here are a few highlights
- The ForceCast did several shows at Celebration, but you don’t want to miss the one where they interview Mark Hamill.
- Ben Burtt talks The Sounds of Star Wars
- Video: Time-lapse of Eric Maruscak’s Clone Wars chalk mural.
- A recap of Bryan Young’s wildly popular ‘Why We Love the Prequels’ panel.
- See all the happy couples who tok the time to get (non-legally) hitched at the Commitment Chapel. (Yes, Lucas Online’s Bonnie Burton does explain why she married R2-D2.)
- Video: A very Disney Last Tour to Endor.
- Miss out on a print? StarWarsShop has some left!
- Were you at the Fandom 140 panel? Did you tweet at the panel? You may be a winner!
Your moment of zen: “I was sitting in the middle of the Force Unleashed 2 panel when I saw you from across the room.”
There’s a new feature at the official site today: Star Wars Soundboards. I eagerly await to see who will recreate NIN’s ‘Closer’ with Ewok and Jawa sounds.
It’s Friday, and you know what that means… In tonight’s new episode, ‘The Gungan General,’ Anakin and Obi-Wan finally get that whole reluctant alleigance with the enemy episode out of the way, with Jar-Jar riding to the rescue. I think I’m pretty safe in saying that hijinks ensue.
- Also… The episode was written by Supernatural’s Julie Siege, and there’s a new webcomic, ‘Switch.’
- Previously… Watch ‘Dooku Captured’. Or if you watch it in real time, check out the usual round of reviews/recaps from io9 (they’re back!) IGN, and Den of Geek and of course the review blog. Or, Crave has an entire midseason recap.
- Podcast: The Force-Cast’s Clone Wars roundtable takes on ‘Dooku Captured.’
- People: IF Magazine has an interview with Matthew Wood.
