Captain Phasma speaks: audio of Star Wars’ most mysterious character

A couple of bits of audio from Star Wars: The Force Awaken's most chrome-ified character Captain Phasma have been released. Straight through the greatest Star Wars toy ever made, BB-8 by Sphero, we're able to hear Gwendoline Christie's stormtrooper elite voice at last. According to an interview with Christie herself in recent weeks, Phasma will be a character as mysterious as Boba Fett was in the original film trilogy. Despite that - we'd still like to hear what she sounds like as soon as possible.

The Force Awakens Japanese Star Wars trailer reveals new details

The Force Awakens Japanese Star Wars trailer reveals new details

This week the second full Star Wars trailer was revealed - in Japan. It would appear that either Japan is simply getting their trailers first (very possible) or JJ Abrams is messing with the lot of us. Either way, here's what you're about to see: more lines from the film, more scenes that you've never seen before, and a really chilling revelation. Like a rudimentary, sparking, red, and evil lightsaber to the neck of your best buddy, heatedly, terrifyingly.

Post drops exclusive Star Wars The Force Awakens droid pics in tiny toys

Starting in the month of November, Post Cereals will be running with a new Star Wars campaign to promote the new film The Force Awakens.

Go no further if you're not a fan of cereal box spoilers!

Star Wars The Force Awakens posters: we made the rest

Star Wars The Force Awakens posters: we made the rest

This morning Lucasfilm released a set of five posters depicting some of the main characters of the film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This film will be released in December - not too long from now - and quite a bit of the plot and the details therein remain a secret. As such, we're not entirely surprised there's no Luke Skywalker poster. But we wanted one anyway, so we made one. We made a poster for Chewbacca as well, at Peter Mayhew's request.

Star Wars The Force Awakens actors have begun releasing posters of their characters this morning, starting with the stormtrooper FINN.

Duracell’s Star Wars commercial is better than the prequels

Duracell’s Star Wars commercial is better than the prequels

The video spot you're about to see takes on Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Christmas morning. Therein you'll find the fight for the Republic, as executed by a couple of youngling Jedi wielding some fabulous battery-laden lightsabers. They're using Duracell batteries, of course, as the video was made for Duracell batteries with licensing from Lucasfilm. This story is just one minute long, but it'll thrill, it'll chill, and it'll make you understand the true nature of The Force. With batteries.

Dad turns son’s wheelchair into Star Wars snowspeeder for Halloween

Dad turns son’s wheelchair into Star Wars snowspeeder for Halloween

Dads that are big fans of Star Wars are turning out to be a very crafty, creative bunch. We've seen not one but two custom rocking horses built, the first being an X-wing, and the second a Speeder Bike. While those two hand-made projects were for very young kids, this latest one is for a child that's a bit older. Ryan Scott Miller's son Jeremy uses a wheelchair, so he built a snowspeeder — the ship the rebels used during The Empire Strikes Back's Battle of Hoth — that fits overtop, just in time for Halloween.

This awesome life-size R2-D2 fridge is Japan-only

Well, Star Wars merchandising and product tie-ins continue to pour out as the release date for The Force Awakens draws near. This time, however, Japan may have topped it all, with the just announced R2-D2 mini fridge from AQUA. That's not to say the fridge is "mini," as it's actually a life-size R2-D2 model, complete with movement and sound effects. Since we've already seen R2-D2 as a lawn ornament, a showerhead, and even a humidifier, there was really no other products left to explore besides mini fridge.

Bad news, cosplayers. Some theaters are putting restrictions on what kind of costumes you can wear during showings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Whether your costume plans are dashed will depend on how elaborate your getup is and where you're planning to see the movie, but if it involves things like face masks and fake weapons, you're probably going to be one of the unlucky fans affected.
