…Since last time, we’ve had a lot of snow. Okay, maybe just me. And those other guys. Man, snow sucks. (Shut it, Californians.) But also! Sharks! Codpieces! And hey, did you hear? Stormtropers aren’t clones!
Weird. George Lucas thinks Star Wars for girls is something other than Star Wars.

Sorry, George Lucas. Girls made Star Wars be for girls about five minutes after it first opened.

Aww, the kids had the dog outside with them! Just brought him back in. I hardly recognize him under all that snow! pic.twitter.com/GqYwQKpnU9

One day, there will be a nerf herder in a #StarWars film and we'll feel bad for making fun of them for all these years.

How lucky is George Lucas that he didn't kill off Darth Vader after the first #StarWars before they knew it would be a franchise?

BREAKING: Lucasfilm confirms stormtroopers aren't clones anymore, which everyone already knew after racists were stupid post-trailer.

Morrison dubbed all of Boba's lines for Empire. But they didn't have him do the Stormtroopers too for a reason.

I like what JJ said about CG and practical effects being tools. You use a specific tool to get the result you want, not for its own sake.

Every time they announce a new Star Wars writer I have this tiny tremble of excitement that it's me and nobody told me yet.

Reading a script for a Star Wars miniseries we have not announced yet by a writer we have not said is doing it yet…and it's SO GOOD.

Just read Star Wars #2. Hot damn, that was awesome. I love the way it's very quickly making connections we've always inferred before.

So, Marvel's version of Darth Vader is something of a murderous dick and I'm kind of digging that for when this takes place. #StarWars

I love that the new @starwars comics aren’t playing it too safe. They’re not afraid of changing our perception of original trilogy events.

2 Replies to “The Boonta Eve Classic: Best #StarWars and #TheForceAwakens tweets for Jan. 23 – Feb. 5”
I have an RSS feed that aggregates TFA rumors for me, which I look forward to reading in my down time. Lots of chaff, but every so often a nice rumor or drone photo.
But your tweet compilations are consistently some of the highest-quality articles on my feed. I always get at least two or three real chuckles out of them. I enjoyed them when they were weekly posts, and are glad that they seem to be more frequent of late.
StarWars.com has tried doing their own version, but it’s a bit watered-down and corporate.
Thanks very much, and keep up the good work.
Yeah, I’m trying to keep it at least weekly or semi-weekly. It can depend on a lot of factors – how many tweets I’ve collected, which depends how much time/energy I have to search the hashtags throughout the week, if there’s a holiday, if there’s major news… And putting ’em together takes a good chunk of time, too. It’s not hard, just time consuming.
