Great Scott, I’m drinking Pepsi Perfect

Great Scott, I’m drinking Pepsi Perfect

Today we've received our bottle of Pepsi Perfect - a limited-edition release from Pepsi celebrating the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. As we spoke of earlier, this particular bottle is one of a set of 6,500 bottles that are being delivered to fans in a variety of different ways. While we're not certain you'll be getting your bottle in the exact same package as we've received ours, what you're about to see is the bottle itself in a very special box, with a very special miniature poster (or a postcard, if you prefer) to go along with it.

Campbell’s Star Wars Soup’s “Galaxy’s Best Dads” just the tip of the iceberg

Campbell’s Star Wars Soup’s “Galaxy’s Best Dads” just the tip of the iceberg

A video spot for Star Wars Soups continues Campbell's #RealRealLife initiative with double "I am your father" delivery. This marks the second time Campbell's includes both the RealRealLife angle and the Star Wars branding release - the first having appeared earlier this week. Today's spot shows Darth Vader soup with Imperial-shaped pieces, while the spot earlier this week showed "R2-D2 Soup", not quite lost in translation. Both are aimed at parents and kids - kids who love R2-D2 Soup more than any other sort of soup.

Star Wars: Battlefront Beta opens today at 10AM PST

Star Wars: Battlefront Beta opens today at 10AM PST

Thursday the 8th of October, 2015, the Star Wars Battlefront BETA began opening its doors to the public. This open invitation will be brought to users on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, including several modes of play and environments. This BETA test will be sent out for two reasons. The first is to test the servers - any game that's based primarily in an online environment such as this needs time to make certain it'll be able to be handled at scale. The second reason this BETA exists is that the game itself must be tested for flaws by a large number of users - tiny flaws like bonus icons disappearing when you throw a thermal detonator - that's what they'll looking for.

Star Wars The Force Awakens toys cover only film’s “first third”

Star Wars The Force Awakens toys cover only film’s “first third”

As you may have guessed, the Star Wars merchandise revealed for The Force Awakens thus far is not the full shebang. Steve Evans, Hasbro's design director for their Star Wars line of toys, spoke this week on the future of the toy line. He revealed that the Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys released thus far had been purposefully restricted in their detail. The detail they'd reveal about the film, not the detail in their plastic. They are, in fact, only from "the first third of the film."

Star Wars Rogue One PS4 VR helmet bundle is fake, but not that far off

Star Wars Rogue One PS4 VR helmet bundle is fake, but not that far off

Today a magnificent forgery has gone viral - one that shows the possibilities with a Star Wars game with its own virtual reality helmet. Not only does this helmet look and feel like a real Rogue Squadron X-Wing pilot helmet, it also incorporates Sony's Project Morpheus - or better known now as PlayStation VR. Again, this bundle isn't actually real - it's a clever construction - but it's not that far off point. ILMxLAB will soon be making products like this a reality.

Star Wars 360 video sends you speeding on Jakku

This morning the first 360-degree immersive Star Wars: The Force Awakens experience was released - and what a doozie it is. This experience comes in the form of a 360-degree Facebook video, created with the technology described in our first ILMxLAB feature. Here you'll be jamming along the sands of Jakku on the speeder you saw in the first couple of teaser trailers for the new movie. You're driving as Rey would, and if you listen closely, you'll hear that the droid BB-8 is along for the ride as well. Watch out for desert marauders while you're out there.

Video shows Star Wars Prequels “rhyme” with original trilogy

Video shows Star Wars Prequels “rhyme” with original trilogy

A video showing the intense visual similarities between the original Star Wars trilogy and each successive prequel has been released. This video was made by a creator by the name of "whoispablo", a rather big Star Wars fan and certainly someone who isn't part of the "We hate the Prequels" club. Here you'll see George Lucas suggest of the prequels: "you see the echo of where all is gonna go. It's like poetry, they rhyme", followed by proof.

Latest Star Wars The Force Awakens photos show tiniest details

Latest Star Wars The Force Awakens photos show tiniest details

Today we've been passed a set of photos and cut-out images from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, most of them new to our eyes. These images will be used in merchandise for the film in the near future - you might even see some of these pictures popping up in stores near you on products like posters and wall-clings later this month. For now though, what better way to make use of the lot of them than to hyper-analyze and otherwise turn the lot into wallpapers for your phone and tablet?
