Rumor: Dominic Monaghan to play a Jedi? Well, we already know he wants in on Episode VII, and we certainly wouldn’t rule out a possible cameo, but who the hell knows?
To be honest, I hadn’t planned to write more about Wookieepedia’s page on breasts. I’m already on record as disapproving, twice. Outrage fatigue happens even to the outraged, and quite honestly I don’t have the temperament or patience to continue to explain Feminism 101 to this fandom.
But the page and one of the responses ended up on Tumblr – one of those areas of fandom where you do actually see female majorities in many circles – and I remembered why it’s important that we keep speaking out.
Although Brian at Tosche Station has already written a great response to the statement, and I agree with him wholeheartedly, I still feel I should address it personally.
It’s Fate of Four time in This Is Madness, as Obi-wan Kenobi and Han Solo face off for the light side, and Boba Fett and Darth Vader for the dark. These matchups will run through the weekend so vote… Err. As your heart tells you.
Rumor: Episode VII already filming in Cairo? And they’re going to Abu Dhabi as well, Jedi News has heard from a “solid source.” Okay? I’m starting to run out of salt here.
Episode VII is still searching for actors? Granted, this is second hand, but according to a friend of Brien Bell (aka James T. Skywalker) they’re auditioning for leads today at CalArts. Right down to the wire…
Today’s This Is Madness matchups. Han Solo vs. Captain Rex and Darth Vader vs. Jabba the Hutt. It’s pretty much a bloodbath.
I thought it was odd that Lucasfilm was collaborating with CBS’ The Big Bang Theory for a Star Wars Day episode instead of a show on Disney-owned ABC, but today we get word that The Goldbergs will have one as well – on May 6th:
The episode sees Adam (Sean Giambrone) and Erica (Hayley Orrantia) encounter elaborately costumed Star Wars fans, including Reno 911′s Thomas Lennon, while waiting in line at the Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi opening.
Now I have to wonder… Will NBC (Community? Parks and Rec?) or Fox (Brooklyn Nine-Nine?) get in on the Star Wars action as well?
