Last night’s round of #AskStarWars lead to a funny exchange between @StarWars and @Marvel. Alas, negotiations broke down, but everyone parted as friends. Or, well, happy step-siblings. See the tweets below the cut.
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.
Last week’s best tweets bled over into Monday, because I’m sure you don’t want to wait a whole week for the Rebels stuff, right? Also: We saw Star Trek Into Darkness, the first week of Star Wars Weekends is a thing that happened, and Artoos invaded Lucasfilm. All that and more under the cut.
Advice for the ages and other greatest hits of last week’s Star Wars tweets lurk below the cut.
