I made a heart for you in Angry Birds #StarWars Goins
I dont know about you guys, but I’d watch the shit out of the #StarWars Channel if there was one.Pat Dwyer
I would listen to nothing but audio books if they were read by Billy Dee Williams #starwars #1995vhs #landoKerry Anderson

Somebody needed to look at Padme Amidala and say, "these are warning signs, girl. Run". #StarWars #YouMarriedDarthVaderKarson Autry
Totally forgot that Jar-Jar Binks was the one who created the Empire. Way to go Jar-Jar. #StarWarsBrad Lewis
If only carving a turkey were as easy as Obi-Wan slicing up Anakin. #OHMYGAWDITSONTVrosiewook
I prefer to believe that Padme was fatally injured by Darkside energy. A way better explanation than a broken heart. #OHMYGAWDITSONTVrosiewook
#StarWars is on @SpikeTV. There’s a program description? It should simply read "Really? You don’t know? It’s fucking Star Wars."Just a guy. Like you
"Where is the Ambassador?" Turns out the Ambassador was in a State Room on the other side of the ship. Way to jump the gun, Darth. #StarWarsKhara House
It’s a little-known fact that George Lucas was just crazy enough to blow up an actual planet for the shot in #StarWarsZachary Potts
Love how Luke introduces himself as though he expects people to know who he is. #starwarsFires In Your Eyes
The trash compactor scene made me think: "Why would the Death Star compact trash when it would be jettisoned into space?" #NerdElizabeth Dibble
Watching #StarWars. When Luke says to Han "I guess that’s what you’re BEST at" I turned to hubs, "It’s like they’re married." Hubs agreed.Sue London
Just realized that Wedge Antilles doesn’t receive a medal at the end of Episode 4. That’s pretty messed up. #StarWarsCorey Mullane
This is how long the commercial breaks are on @SpikeTV during their #StarWars broadcasts. #ridiculous.
I had a Star wars question about Mos Eisley (still can’t spell it though)… lucky I could go straight to the source! No need to google LMAOAmanda Lucas
The amount of calm these men show when Darth Vader randomly chokes their coworkers is unnerving… #StarWarsNReynolds
I would just like to point out that the use of silence when Luke & Vader first meet is perfection. Like these movies. #StarWarsSonny McCall
Obi-Wan Kenobi is right up there with Glenda the Good Witch when it comes to withholding vital information. #StarWarsKhara House
Leia that’s the second time in this movie you’ve kissed your bro on the mouth. You’re making everyone uncomfortable. #starwarsAmanda Heisey
Can we agree to change it from "Slave Leia" costume to "Jabba-Killin’ Leia" costume? #cosplay #starwarsEthyl Cannes
@EthylCannes Complete with Chain of +1 Killing Sexual Assaulting Bastards.Louisa


Hoping that #starwars 7 will feature the hilarious animated adventures of Anakin and Palpatine in the afterlife voiced by Seth McFarlane.Keith McIntosh
The more I think about Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm, the more I hope they develop/patent handheld holograms. #Palmograms, if you will.Chris Vechsler
If the sequel trilogy looks as good as the prequels but a story like the originals I am absolutely satisfiedAndy
Writing a blog post tonight and found myself saying "all six Star Wars films." Feels a little short-sighted all the sudden. #EpisodeVIICole Horton
I’d be up for Star Wars Episode VIII: Body Heat. (Or was that Episode III?) #KasdanYZ Freedman
RUMOR ALERT: #StarWarsEpisodeVII to feature title and plot, possibly credits, according to sources familiar with the production.Eric Geller
Imagine if Daniel-Day Lewis said, "Fuck it. I love money" and played a Jedi in Episode VII.Jamie


Just had a philosophical debate with my 9 year old explaining why Star Wars Angry Birds isn’t part of the expanded Star Wars universe.Kyle Ausbrooks

BREAKING: @wilco Needlessly Pads Geek Cred; Records "I’m a Whill" 7" for Exclusive Distribution at Star Wars Expanded Universe ConventionMPH
Darth Plagueis was part history, part intriguing, part boring, part exciting, and overall somewhat disappointing: non-answer answers #SWEURyan Malin
Okay. Went back and read those Thrawn "Star Wars" novels. Any fanboy who hates the prequels but wants those as films completely baffles me.Drew McWeeny

Star Wars life

I don’t know about you but I always have to eat products w/my face on it- plus I had to make sure it wasnt decades old Hamill
"Everyone goes out like a bitch in Star Wars. That’s the thing! It’s like real life." – @JoeyEsposito.Eric Goldman
My fav 3 yr old boy was wearing a shirt w/ C-3PO & R2-D2. When I asked who they were, he replied "Goldy Pants and R2D!!". #luv #starwarsNash’s Mom
