Dupont’s floating light saber fountain pen might push you to the dark side

Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ secret little Ewok

Now Lucasfilm can't help but release bits and pieces that are required to make The Force Awakens a fully massive experience well beyond the big screen - and that includes informative canon-friendly books of all sorts.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – who is Captain Phasma?

As the shiniest of characters, the most reflective of all Star Wars characters, and a Game of Thrones actress to boot, Captain Phasma has our attention. We've been wondering what the backstory is on this character since we first heard the name - and now that we've seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we're still wondering. The film itself doesn't reveal one whole heck of a lot, but we've got a bit more data than is revealed through the movie. It's time to get chrome.
