Why does Princess Leia have a British accent in Star Wars? Retconned at last!

Why does Princess Leia have a British accent in Star Wars? Retconned at last!

At long last, an original Star Wars (A New Hope) faux pas has been foiled, and it's thanks to fiction writer Claudia Grey. She's the author of the newest Star Wars book: Bloodlines, and she's taken aim with its main character Leia Organa. The problem? Leia speaks with a British accent in A New Hope while being interrogated by Grand Moff Tarkin. She never does that again. The solution? Grey says she meant to do that.

This LEGO Star Destroyer has a full interior, complete with hangar and ships

My favorite toys growing up were my LEGO sets. Well, I say "sets" but really very few of my sets stayed the way they were originally intended. They were all eventually parted out to make way for more imaginative creations. While I did make my own custom X-wing and TIE fighter, nothing I constructed was anywhere nearly as amazing as this custom Star Destroyer.

Follow Han and Chewie as they liberate Kashyyyk in the next Star Wars book

For those of us that have been fans of the Star Wars universe for decades, we used to have a pretty solid understanding of what happened after the movies. We know about Grand Admiral Thrawn, Mara Jade, the Emperor's clones, the New Jedi Order, and more. Unfortunately, when The Force Awakens was being made, all of those facts and stories were collectively dumped into the "Legends" category. As such, those stories can be thought of as some sort of alternate universe. And that means we have a lot of catching up to do with our old friends.

Private MMO servers – A grey area with potential

Private MMO servers – A grey area with potential

The reason that it's going dark is due to the threat of legal action from Blizzard against both the team running the server, and the hosting provider that keeps it online. While Blizzard is legally in the right, it does bring up some interesting questions about the way MMOs change over time.
