I think we can all agree that Rian Johnson and Dave Filoni won Twitter this week. Below the cut, everyone else. Well, not everyone, I’m only one woman.
Since last time, we found out we’re going to SDCC (well, The Force Awakens is, clear your Friday) and the Star Wars comic dropped a crazy tidbit into a core character’s past that no one saw coming, though maybe we should have. Also! Homemade BB-8s! Pee jokes! All the usual bullshit!
Oh god, it’s May. May.
We’ve all eased back into normal life post-Celebration, just in time for May the 4th on Monday. In the meantime, John Boyega’s family gets their revenge for all those secrets he won’t spill, The Force Awakens posters have begun appearing in theaters, and something about… Dog poop? Whatever, it’s Friday.

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!
