Does evil love itself?
Does it crave to stare at its own image and perhaps even one day sext?
This might seem possible after witnessing a selfie posted to the new "Star Wars" Instagram account.
For here is Darthness itself, in the person of the Lord Vader, behaving like a 13-year-old high school student.
He chooses his best side and he shoots.
Of course, this is all publicity for "Star Wars: Episode VII," whose premiere is a full two years away.
Will Disney be able to maintain Instagram interest for those two years? And look at … Read more
With Christmas just around the corner, this is the perfect gift for that huge "Star Wars" fan in your life: an original Han Solo blaster.
Truth be told, this nifty little piece is going to run you at least $200,000, and likely a bit more. But how can you put a price on such an important piece of geek (and film) history?
Some celebrate Hanukkah with age-old traditions, and others celebrate with Lego and "Star Trek."
Some of the more unique dreidels out there include spinning tributes to "Star Wars," and "Doctor Who." But as long as you have the letters in the right place, anything is possible.
"Building a dreidel builds other stuff, too, like enthusiasm for the holiday and a deeper appreciation of those four important letters and what they stand for," says J Create Magazine. "The letters on a homemade dreidel need to be arranged in the correct order going right to left. Nun, gimmel, hey, shin are the abbreviation (an initialism, actually, if you want to get all nerdy) of 'nes gadol hayah shom: a great miracle happened there.' So, a shin will never be adjacent to to a gimmel, for example." … Read more
Why make a boring gingerbread house when you can attack Hoth and hunger with this delightful dessert worthy of the Empire itself?
Chef Aaron Lawrence from the Catalano Restaurant & Cicchetti Bar at Victoria, British Columbia's Magnolia Hotel & Spa created the gingerbread AT-AT for the fifth annual Canada's National Gingerbread Showcase. Professional and amateur chefs alike are invited to the showcase to build and decorate their own one-of-a-kind gingerbread creations in support of Habitat for Humanity Victoria.
Since the theme this year is transportation, Chef Lawrence decided to pay homage to both "Star Wars" and Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer. … Read more
I'm imagining sitting in my home on Tatooine, relaxing with a glass of Bantha-blood fizz, watching the Galactic Broadcasting Service's latest episode of "This Old Death Star." Host Darth Vila suggests a quick and easy way to spruce up your spaceship of terror: wall tiles. Death Star wall tiles.
The wall tiles from Tom Spina Designs were created for a custom home theater project, to really give it that conquering-the-galaxy sort of look. The "Star Wars"-themed theater features 14 different tiles. Each master tile was molded and cast in tinted resin. The designs were plucked right from the surface of the Death Star.… Read more
Imagine painstakingly creating a working astromech that looks and sounds just like the beloved R2-D2, and then being asked to build one just like it for the new "Star Wars" film. That's exactly what happened to UK "Star Wars" fans and R2-D2 builders Lee Towersey and Oliver Steeples.
It all started when Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy toured the R2-D2 Builders area at Star Wars Celebration Europe this summer in Germany, Steeples told StarWars.com. "She posed for pictures with us, looked at all the droids we'd built, and was very complimentary," Steeples said. "I mentioned that the R2-D2 Builders in the UK were available if required, as a semi-joke. When I was contacted to work on the film by [executive producer] Jason McGatlin, it was on her recommendation." … Read more
It's hard to improve on the hit movie and beloved best-selling series "The Hunger Games" -- unless, of course, you replace all the humans with cats. Instead of elaborate special effects, the movie set is "Sweded" (re-created using the cheapest materials possible) into a cardboard masterpiece. Or is that meow-sterpiece?
"The Hunger Games" cat video is part of a bi-weekly series called "Movies As Told By Cats" on The Pet Collective, a site dedicated to pets and the people who love them. The video features the best scenes from "The Hunger Games" -- romance, action, and drama at a purr-fect pace.
"The inspiration came from pictures of cats sticking their heads out of cardboards and someone online decided to draw anime characters on the cardboards," Hai-Lam Phan, senior producer and director, of the series, tells Crave. "I thought it would be funny to build on top of that, and make a story parody out of the frames. Thus, Movies As Told By Cats was born." … Read more
This time around she's whipped up a tribute to the Millennium Falcon using Knox gelatin, condensed milk, black gel dye, and Kotobukiya's Star Wars Millennium Falcon silicone tray.
"I make a lot of 'Star Wars' food and when I do it I like to stay true to the movies as much as possible," Jenn tells Crave.… Read more
Think you have enough midi-chlorians to be in the new "Star Wars" film? Perhaps you're the droid director J.J. Abrams is looking for? Or maybe you just want to test out your best impression of Jack Lemmon imitating Chewbacca?
Open auditions for the new "Star Wars" film started Saturday in Bristol, England, but with long lines turning people away, Lucasfilm is now accepting video applications through Cast It Talent's Web site
The site reveals generic bios of characters that most likely will not be exactly the same in the movie (Abrams undertook a similar style of casting with his 2010 film "Super 8"). … Read more
