Over the last week, we finally got our first look at Del Rey’s first post-ROTJ novel in the new canon – and a brand new, very Twitter-savvy author to go with it. We also swooned over Oscar Isaac pictures, planned for Celebration (#SWCA is the official hashtag, if that matters to you) and partook of some delicious fanboy tears. Onward!
Remember our unofficial Star Wars style guide from a few years back? Well, now there’s a Twitter account, @SWStylebook, because apparently I am insane. Apparently a lot of other people are, too, because it took off like gangbusters last night and I am still a little freaked out. Please follow it and also feel free to ask/suggest stuff!
Critics please stop calling every new big sci-fi movie "This generation's Star Wars!" This generation has a Star Wars. It's called Star Wars

Last week, we Course of the Force began with an Ewok confronting the Dark Lord of the Sith, J.J. Abram’s shark-centric plans for Episode VII were foiled and we all wished for naked days. Or something.
We’re not straining ourselves, are we? Good. Last week, George Lucas got married, California fans gathered for their (unofficial) answer to Star Wars weekends and Luke shot first. No, wait. Come back!
Last week, we considered Han Solo’s vests, made some NSA jokes, considered teade embargoes and… Well, you know the rest. Onward!
Last week.. Okay, not a ton happened last week. (Or this week, apparently) It was going to be a very dull tweet roundup indeed… Until Spike busted out the original trilogy. Bless you, Spike TV.
