Star Wars Anti-Cheese edits will change how you see the prequels

Star Wars Anti-Cheese edits will change how you see the prequels

One film editor and Star Wars fan has taken it upon himself to edit all three of the Star Wars prequels to take out the cheese. Jeremy M West's edits change the voices of the aliens in the films, cut out the bits that do the film's plot lines no favors, and generally turn the films, even if you've seen them each several times, into works that are once again watchable. These edits take out what you, a battle-hardened Original Star Wars Trilogy fan, consider the cringe-worthy bits of The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Who is Maz Kanata?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – Who is Maz Kanata?

Right around 50 minutes into the 2-hour Star Wars: The Force Awakens film, we see a tiny character by the name of Maz Kanata. She's a mostly-CGI character voiced and acted by Lupita Nyong'o, and she's more than a little important to the overarching Anakin saga that flows through the Star Wars film universe. The following is a glimpse at what Maz has been up to for the past several hundred years, what she's done with regard to Han Solo, and what she's got in her secret curio box. Therefore, if you've not seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we recommend you proceed with caution!

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

The blockbuster success of the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" of course means countless merchandise trying to cash in on the hype. There are authentic products as well as knockoffs. And there are some that will ask for your arm and sometimes even your leg in exchange. Take for example S.T. Dupont's fountain pen painstakingly and accurately designed after Yoda's light saber. Not only is it an extremely limited edition, only 8 of it have been made, it is also an extremely expensive collector's item.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ secret little Ewok

Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ secret little Ewok

Today it was hypothesized that Star Wars: The Force Awakens' own Captain Phasma is none other than "Ewoks" character Cindel Towani. A pair of "Ewoks" movies were released in 1984 and 1985, both of which lived (sort of) in the Star Wars universe and mostly in their own, alternate universe. In the movies, a young girl by the name of Cindel (and her family) crash-landed on the forest moon of Endor, only to be saved by the Ewoks that lived there. Decades later, we now believe, she became the leader of the First Order Stormtroopers as Captain Phasma.

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.
