TFN has a ton of ROTS merchandise pics. See what the shelves will look likle before the fanboys get there.
For the Firefly fans among us, Buffy.nu has posted the entire unaired script of what would’ve been the 15th episode of Firefly. Read and enjoy!
Actress Julie Walters confirms that there will be no Mrs. Weasley in the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire adaptation.
A second test screening of Joss Whedon’s Serenity took place last week. Unlike the first screening, the audience consisted of many who weren’t Firefly fans, and AICN has a few of their comments. The film is currently set to open in September.
Producer Robert Tapert addresses fan concerns over the Evil Dead remake.
Starwars.com posts the crawl.
Nick Gillard, Lucasfilm’s swordmaster and stunt coordinator for the prequels, will be at CIII. No events have been announced yet, but hopefully it’s not inconceivable that a demonstration will be involved.
We don’t have actual names, but C2 Ventures, who are responsible for bring autographing Star Wars celebrities to Celebration II and GenCon, will be back for Celebration III next April. They’ll be providing early hours for Fan Club members.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is in hiding, mourning the loss of his fellow Jedi, and devastated by the betrayal of his former Padawan. He has been tasked to watch over and protect a young child who may hold the key to the galaxy’s salvation.
But when Obi-Wan finds out that a former Jedi apprentice has survived, he must make a painful decision: whether to stay on Tatooine to preserve the future of the Jedi, or voyage into the heart of the Empire on one last desperate mission.

Sorry. I’ve always had this secret wish to write a Variety-type headline.
At any rate, Natalie Portman has been nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for her work in the film Closer.
Big congratulations to her! We wish her all the best and hope she goes for her usual sophisticated fashion style, rather than the dress for which she was panned at the Golden Globes. (Let’s be honest about this, shall we?)
Naturally, John Williams is back for his work in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. (Would it really be the Oscars without him?) And I suspect ILM and/or Skywalker Sound are somewhere in the mix on the technical awards.
And our condolences to Liam Neeson for his snub. He’ll always be Qui-Gon Jinn to us!
Have you been saving your Republic credits? Because Lucasfilms’ licensees have a lot in store for you, this year:
The Official Pix license awarded to C2 Ventures
The new line of stickers from Mello Smello (alas, not scratch’n’sniff)
The Hallmark Ornaments for 2005
The ROTS Topps Cards (Spoilers abound!)
This just adds to the list that includes the previously announced books, action figures and the rather nifty, yet oh-so-pricey, window blinds.
Must start playing the lottery, again.
We are greatly pleased that the little tyke timed it so that her mother could finish the next installment of Harry Potter, first. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be clocking in at 672 pages, with a special edition containing 32 pages of artwork. (Big thanks to The Leaky Cauldron for feeding us our Harry Potter tidbits.)
