Finally, indeed. Also, apparently he tweeted that at 3 a.m. London time; Closing down the pub? In any case, this is probably the biggest tweet day I’ve seen since Disney bought Lucasfilm. How far we’ve come.
two three cons this weekend; WonderCon in Anaheim, AwesomeCon in D.C. and Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience in, you know. Salt Lake. You may remember we got some Rebels news at WonderCon. As for the rest? What minor Star Wars character’s name sounds like a sex position? Head below the cut to find out. (Or not.)
Within: Some Episode VII and Expanded Universe chatter, that whole Wookieepedia thing, some nerfs, and ponderings of all sorts.
And also Indiana Jones for some reason!

No, I haven’t forgotten about the Twitter roundups, I was just busy freezing, falling and not being able to sit in a desk chair for several days. It was fantastic! In any case, the roundup is back, and it’s been busy. This installment covers the latest rumors, Marvel/Dark Horse and, of course, the ever-present freaking out whenever anyone mentions the Lucasfilm Story Group. Brace yourselves.
I love Star Wars as much as the next nerd. But let's be real, how high was George Lucas when he was coming up with character names? So high.

In under the gun, as another new year commences and we get back to our regular weekly schedule…
Disney just needs to buy loneliness and alienation and they'll own my entire childhood!

Due to the insidious influence of Santa Maul, among other things, the tweet roundup has had to go bi-weekly for the holiday season. Despite all that it was a productive couple of weeks, with the movies airing on Spike, Disney and Paramount sorting out the rights to Indiana Jones and the usual array of news, rumors and snarkage. Onward!

Last week, Artoo was confirmed for Episode VII, some people were jerks, but seriously, screw them. If you’re not down with Artoo, we have no use for you. Onward!

We’re not going to pretend that Artoo didn’t win the week on Twitter, but… been there, done that. Here are our runners-up… And a cunning imposter. Sort of.
