Celebrating Thanksgiving is what #WearStarWarsEveryDay is all about for Week 47! But more importantly, we have a special offer in our Thanks-for-giving prize drawing! If you donate to Collateral Repair Project via GoFundMe today, Cyber Monday, or tomorrow, Giving Tuesday, I will double your chances of winning a prize in the prize drawing! We have seven different prize packages to give away, including a set of four Topps Star Wars trading card series books, some of which are signed, a copy of Ahsoka signed by both the author E.K. Johnston and audiobook narrator Ashley Eckstein, and an advance uncorrected proof of Maul: Lockdown by Joe Schreiber. Just chip in $20 or more, and you’ll be entered into the prize drawings with double odds! Not even a Corellian gambler can give up those chances to win! (Especially since so few donations have been made, you’re practically guaranteed to win something!) All persons making donations through the end of November will be eligible for the different prize drawings, but your chances are doubled if you donate on 11/28 or 11/29!

Back to week 47: I wear a variety of shirts, including an Adidas soccer jersey, and a Disney Cast Member exclusive stormtrooper helmet schematic tee. For this stretch of my fundraising campaign for Collateral Repair Project, we give thanks for a bunch of fine folks who lent me some wear this week, including Dani, Lori, Russell, and Trina. Plus a shirt I bought as a fundraiser for Make-A-Wish through the 501st Legion, so now it’s doing double duty! But sadly no donations in this time frame – makes for a sad turkey!

Every day I wear a new and different Star Wars apparel item, my daily pledge makers will chip in $4.65 to Collateral Repair Project! This review for Week 47 covers November 18 to November 24 of my wearathon, and an update on fundraising for and the latest happenings at Collateral Repair Project, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance, education, and community support to urban refugees.

Today in Rogue One: New featurette reveals PG-13 rating

ro-featurette2-01-ge

A new behind-the-scenes Rogue One featurette appeared today. It features director Gareth Edwards, stars Felicity Jones and Diego Luna, plus several new pieces of footage.


It also appears to be the first to reveal that the film is rated PG-13 for “extended sequences of sci-fi violence and action.” Well, it is a war movie! Rogue One is the third PG-13 Star Wars film, after Revenge of the Sith and The Force Awakens.

→ Elsewhere, Edwards says that Alan Tudyk’s K-2SO is a real scene-stealer.

→ Alexander Freed’s Rogue One novelization is moving up! The hardcover version will now be in stores on December 20, instead of January 3. The eBook release date hasn’t changed – it’ll still be out on December 16, same as the film. (Also, I think this got lost in the shuffle for me, but we did finally see the novelization cover last week. Surprise! It’s basically the poster.)

→ In things you can buy right now, Thinkgeek has two new Rogue One tops.

Wear Star Wars Every Day: Week 45

wswed-week-45-title-card

Week 45 of my #WearStarWarsEveryDay fundraising campaign is all wrapped up, and we’ve got a wacky mix of Star Wars wear for this first full week of November. No donations for Collateral Repair Project in this time period, which is a bit of a bummer, but I know that with the election in the US, everyone’s mind has been elsewhere. Still, big thanks to Trina who donated a shirt worn this week, and Danielle who lent four of the items donned this week, along with Tyler who lent another wrist sweatband.

Every day I wear a new and different Star Wars apparel item, my daily pledge makers will chip in $4.65 to Collateral Repair Project! This time around, we have six shirts from a variety of companies, including my Back to Jakku mashup shirt from Teepublic for Back to the Future Day. There’s also Tyler’s wristband which I wore to jury duty, and a warning sign for our favorite stormtrooper in A New Hope. This review for Week 45 covers November 4 to November 10 of my wearathon, and an update on fundraising for and the latest happenings at Collateral Repair Project, a non-profit organization that provides emergency assistance, education, and community support to urban refugees.
