Turns out, Luke Skywalker isn’t missing. He just went to the movies. But seriously, although we talked a LOT about Hamill’s beard (BEARD) the last week has been mostly about SDCC. Because SDCC.
Sometimes my hubby answers me in a Jabba The Hut voice… And I'm like, "Knock it off. At least pretend to be Han." #StarWars #hubbyproblems

…IS IT A SIGN???
Apparently Lucas once toyed with the idea of Luke's separated hand crawling toward his lightsaber. #StarWars #SDCC pic.twitter.com/OsMPipfNe9

Just saw Chewbacca get a ticket for jaywalking. Only at Comic-Con. #SDCC2014

There was just a cheer in the @starwars pavilion when the Death Star blew up on our video wall.

At #SDCC, the @quirkbooks booth was home to Elizabethan Princess Leia! Great costume. pic.twitter.com/RRiPgVNxAr

If your goal is shouting out hatred of others, General Grievous does make an appropriate poster child for your cause. pic.twitter.com/GiLUglyObv

Episode VII and beyond
Big takeaway from talking to Lucasfilm people tonight: look out Marvel, these guys are about to redefine longform shared storytelling.

Living in the air ducts of #hallh all year because it's the only way I'll get into the #starwars panel at #SDCC next year. #phantomofhallh

I have lots of questions after seeing the first episode of Star Wars Rebels but wow do I want to see more. It’s wholly satisfying & exciting
— Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier) July 25, 2014
#StarWarsRebels was incredible. They knocked it out of the park.
— Bryan Young (@swankmotron) July 25, 2014
There is nothing quite like seeing new Star Wars. I feel so giddy right now. #StarWarsRebels
— Amy Ratcliffe (@amy_geek) July 25, 2014
As someone who never got past the first season of Clone Wars let me assure you, #StarWarsRebels is awesome. Nails the tone of the OT.
— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) July 25, 2014
So thrilled about the first episode of #StarWarsRebels — it was everything it needed to be and more. Callbacks, call forward and character.
— Chris Taylor (@FutureBoy) July 25, 2014
Star Wars Rebels is very different than The Clone Wars. It is much more kinetic with its energy. I loved it. Very micro, not very macro.

The Expanded Universe
First, comics folks, since they’re new (to us)
I actually found out I was going to be the Star Wars editor LAST NOVEMBER. It's been so hard not to talk about it all the time since then.
— Jordan D. White (@cracksh0t) July 29, 2014
Turns out this was NOT an elaborate joke being played on me by everyone at Marvel. I am actually writing Star Wars comics. Holy crap.
— Jason Aaron (@jasonaaron) July 27, 2014
Loving that Leia cover. Wish hers was an ongoing instead of a mini (because LEIA IS AWESOME) but overall I like this news a lot.
— Nancy K (@Decibelle5) July 27, 2014
EU fans will never stop rolling their eyes at post-Yavin stories, but the thought of one definitive canon take is appealing to me.
— Eleven-ThirtyEight (@eleventhirtyate) July 26, 2014
Well damn. I was all set to not give a shit about the #StarWars comics, but then @MarkWaid had to go & write one, so now I've gotta buy it.
— Jay Faerber (@JayFaerber) July 27, 2014
A New Dawn…
Reading @DelReyStarWars "A New Dawn" was like time traveling back to my teens with the EU novels. These new authors are worthy successors.
— Donna Dickens (@MildlyAmused) July 30, 2014
Star Wars: A New Dawn makes a huge revelation on page 66. How appropriate? @jjmfaraway, coincidence?

Better typography; art is still hideous. Sigh.
You know how you have to destroy the older parts of a road to make it better in the end? That's what they're doing with the Wars. I hope.

Star Wars life
I went to the doctor last week and they took some blood samples. should've sprung for the midi-chlorian test #starwars

Idea for Disney and hospitals: Disney sponsor the children's ward and rename it the X-Wing of the hospital. #StarWars make hospital cool.

Took down a picture hanging in the kids' room for years and replaced it with a #Yoda quote. So far only one of them has noticed. #starwars
