Fans in the news: Ernie Cline, 501st

  • We haven’t heard much from the Fanboys camp lately, but UGO talks to the film’s co-writer, Ernie Cline. He has good news, though – director Kyle Newman is back on board, and his cut is the one that will be released later this year.
  • The Pioneer Press features Minnesota droidmaker and costumer Michael Hansen and pals.
  • And there’s more 501st action over at The Lake Oswego Review, which covered a Make-A-Wish event in Oregon, where Darth Vader gifted Owen Miller, a young boy with cancer, with his own stormtrooper armor and lightsaber.
