The votes are in, and the Wookieepedians have chosen… Jaina Solo is Miss Star Wars 2007, and Ben Skywalker is Mister Star Wars 2007. Runners up include Mara Jade Skywalker, Darth Vader, Jarael (From the KOTOR comics,) Darth Revan, Leia Organa Solo, Kyle Katarn, the Jedi Exile and Mace Windu.
Congrats to all the, umm, contestants.
Star Wars: Revelations could totally be canon, guys! I’m sure Lucasfilm is breathlessly awaiting your calls.
Whoops – two Friday Variety articles we seem to have missed, both focusing on Star Wars fandom – one on the 501st, and another on the Wookieepedia.
George gaves Admiral Motti a full name on Conan the other night – after Conan – and some people are shocked and awed that Wookieepedia already reflects the change. Obviously they’ve never looked at the site during the run-up to a book release! Wookieepedians are always lurking around looking for bits of new canon… Or ‘canon,’ as the case may be.
Breast. Way to break those stereotypes, fanboys.
Alien Exodus, a never-produced book trilogy that would have detailed the origins of the human race in the GFFA. I… I… Um. Okay.
At least I finally know what the deal was with those Alien Chronicle books.
The Wookieepedians have a quote database and it is often quite hilarious. At least to me.
Bantam/Dark Horse invasion storyline. Sue Rostoni denied it at starwars.com a week or so ago (see the article’s talk page) as did Shelley Shapiro back in 2003 and Randy Stradley in a recent interview with TFN but as we all know, fandom loves a conspiracy theory.
List of references to Star Wars in television. Whenever I find myself wandering around a Wiki, the ‘list of references’ is my favorite part. Now, there’s no way in hell this list is complete, but it’s still pretty sizable.
An almost-forgotten relic of the KJA years: The Little Lost Bantha Cub. Truthfully, this isn’t really weird, but did make me burst out laughing when I ran across it.
Also check out this list of books in the Star Wars galaxy. There’s even a self-help book. Now that’s weird.
