Star Wars Toothbrushes: The Empire Strikes Plaque

Via StarWars.com by Mark Newbold:

The Star Wars saga has shown us that Han, Luke, Leia, and company had regular brushes with danger, fighting their way out of close scrapes and situations. Here on Earth, the kids of the ’70s and ’80s faced similar terrors, albeit of a slightly less stellar nature. Moms and dads worldwide, desperate to find a way to get their kids to get into the daily routine of brushing their teeth, quickly realized that there was no better way to make it happen than to give their kids the coolest option in oral hygiene — Star Wars toothbrushes. And so it was that from the late ’70s to the mid ’80s kids were raging about their new toothbrushes, adorned with a selection of their favorite characters. Just think, you could brush and go with Threepio, fight the plaque to Hoth and back, scrub your gums with Rebel chums and safely chew thanks to Artoo. Battling tooth decay had suddenly become fun.

Harrison Ford here. You all probably know me from movies such as Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

Q: How do you feel about snakes?

Harrison Ford: I actually like snakes...

Q: Did you keep any props from any of your movies, if so which ones are your favorite?

Harrison Ford: No, I don't keep any, I'm not terribly nostalgic and I don't have a lot of things from my movies. And certainly don't have a lot of them around my house. Those are separate worlds for me.

Q: If you and Mark Hamill fought who would win?

Harrison Ford: Me, of course.

Q: Hi Mr, Ford. I think we would all like to know: Who shot first? Han Solo or Greedo?

Harrison Ford: I don't know and I don't care.

Benedict Cumberbatch rules out roles in Star Wars

Via Independent.co.uk:

Science fiction fans were left doubly disappointed over the weekend after Benedict Cumberbatch announced that he would not be starring in the new Star Wars films or playing any part in Doctor Who. Speaking at the Oz Comic Con in Sydney, Australia yesterday, Cumberbatch said that he would not be taking part in either of the franchises.

According to the entertainment site The Iris, which was live-tweeting from the event, the 37-year-old actor told the audience “I would've liked a part in JJ's [Abrams] new Star Wars but it won't happen sadly.” Cumberbatch then delivered another crushing blow during the question and answer session by dismissing any rumours he would be starring in Doctor Who.

“I’m never gonna play The Doctor and nothing to do with the Whoniverse.” The news may come as a disappointment to fans of the British actor best-known for role as the modern day super-sleuth in Sherlock and Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness.

Star Wars – D-Tech Me Returns to Star Wars Weekends

Via StarWars.com:

I recently shared with you a first look at new merchandise coming to Star Wars Weekends 2014 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios beginning May 16. Today, I’m thrilled to announce that the Star Wars – D-Tech Me experience will return this year with a few new options for guests. This year, the experience will be located inside Darth’s Mall, located in Soundstage 1 between Studio Backlot Tour and Toy Story Midway Mania.

For those unfamiliar with Star Wars – D-Tech Me, this 10-minute experience uses the world’s highest-resolution, single-shot 3D face scanner created by our Imagineering scientists with Disney Research labs. The captured image is later sent to a high resolution 3D printer to create the figure. My fellow author Gary Buchanan has a cool, behind-the-scenes video about the experience as seen in this story.

Alan Horn Comments on Episode 7

Fans clamored in excitement last month when we received production news for “Episode VII” from the official Star Wars website.

“Disney and Lucasfilm are excited to announce that principal photography on Star Wars: Episode VII, directed by J.J. Abrams, will commence May 2014, and will be based at London's historic Pinewood Studios.”

Some new information has come to light, however. On April 2nd, Alan Horn sat down the Hollywood Reporter and let slip some interesting details. He confirmed that filming had, in fact, already begun. This is a direct contradiction from the press release by Lucasfilm in March. He then went on to talk about casting as well. “We have a lot of them [in place],” Horn commented about the main actors, whose names have not been revealed yet. “We’re just not completely done yet.”

Horn was also questioned about the script, which was a source of many rumors last year when Michael Arndt left the project. “It’s all about the screenplay,” he said. “It has to be screenplay, screenplay, screenplay.” When the Hollywood Reporter questioned if the script was where it needed to be, he replied, “It actually is now.”

He wrapped up the interview by commenting about the timeframe for “Episode VII.” Horn said “Episode VII” will be picking up the saga “where 6 left off -- and where 6 left off is 35 years ago by the time this is released.” Again this is a direct contradiction from the press release last month that claimed “Episode VII” would be set 30 years after “Return of the Jedi.”

Obviously there are several contradictions between Lucasfilm’s and Disney’s statements that might be just the beginning of attempts spread confusion. It would make sense if this was just a way to avoid leaks, suspicion, and scrutiny. You can check out the full interview at this link.

Keep the conversation going with us on Twitter and share your thoughts! @yodasnews (Yodas News) @chewbacca89 (Alex Rybak)

Star Wars Han Solo & Chewbacca ARTFX+ Statue

Via Kotobukiya on Facebook:

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The incredible Star Wars ARTFX+ lineup has already featured some of the most iconic heroes and villains from the Star Wars films, and now it expands to an epic team up of two of the most popular characters of all time, Han Solo & Chewbacca! Jumping straight out of Episode IV: A New Hope, the inseparable smuggling duo stands side by side ready to take on the forces of the evil galactic Empire. Literally from different worlds (Corellia and Kashyyyk), Han Solo and Chewbacca formed an unlikely yet lasting friendship that would resonate with fans from their first appearance.

Ready to take on anything the Empire might throw at them, the pair of space scoundrels advance in turn as they point their weapons at hordes of ineffective Stormtroopers. Han wears his iconic outfit consisting of a white shirt, navy vest, orange-striped blue pants, belt with holster, and tall black boots. Meanwhile, his Wookie partner is au naturale as usual, covered in thick brown fur broken up only by his bandolier. Both level their respective trademark weapons, a BlasTech Industries DL-44 heavy blaster pistol for the former and a crossbow-like bowcaster for the latter. Kotobukiya’s renowned craftsmanship is evident in all of the fine details from Chewie’s intricately sculpted fur to the folds and creases in Han’s clothing!

ARTFX+ Statues are fun-to-assemble pre-painted snap-fit kits that can be easily put together in seconds without glue or modeling skill. Han Solo stands just over 7 inches tall and Chewbacca over 8 inches (1/10th scale) atop their included display bases; magnets in their feet provide extra stability. Whether they’re guarding your shelves alone or displayed alongside the R2-D2 & C-3PO or Stormtrooper army builder two-packs they’re guaranteed to be the highlight of your Star Wars collection!

Episode VII Adds Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca

Via HollywoodReporter.com:

Peter Mayhew will play Chewbacca for Disney and Lucasfilm's upcoming sequel, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Mayhew played the legendary Wookiee and Han Solo's co-pilot in the original trilogy, beginning with Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope in 1977. Rumors recently surfaced that he was reprising his role after he canceled an upcoming appearance at Texas convention Comicpalooza "due to filming." Since the convention takes place May 23-26, many fans wondered if that meant the actor would be busy with Episode VII.

'Big Bang Theory,' Lucasfilm Team for 'Star Wars' Day Episode

Via Hollywoodreporter.com

CBS' The Big Bang Theory is teaming with Lucasfilm for an epic Star Wars episode timed to Star Wars Day, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

In "The Proton Transmogrification" -- the episode set to air May 1 and timed to the annual May 4 Star Wars Day -- the gang gets together to celebrate the annual geek holiday, while Sheldon (Jim Parsons) is guided by visions of his childhood idol and mentor, Professor Proton (Emmy winner Bob Newhart), who appears to the socially challenged genius as his own Jedi master.

For those not in the know, Star Wars Day is recognized every year on May 4, with the traditional celebratory greeting being "May the fourth be with you" -- a play on Star Wars' famed "May the Force be with you" line. Fans across the globe celebrate the film franchise with screenings and special events.

For the episode, the CBS comedy teamed with a group of special effects technicians from Lucasfilm's Industrial Light & Magic to re-create Dagobah -- the remote world of swamps and forest that served as a refuge for Yoda during his exile -- and provide props for the episode, including a light saber. Lucasfilm experts consulted on the episode and visited the Big Bang Theory set to oversee the production, with the final touches completed at its San Francisco headquarters.

Lucas Lost a $40 Million Bet to Steven Spielberg

Via Time.com:

It’s no secret that Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are good pals, but perhaps the best demonstration of their friendship is the fact that not even a $40 million bet has been able to come between them.

Back in the late 1970s, Lucas was reportedly nervous that his upcoming sci-fi film Star Wars wouldn’t be a big hit. At the time, Spielberg was in the midst of making his own sci-fi epic, Close Encounters of the Third Kind. With Jaws already under his belt, Spielberg was the better-established director. During a break from filming on Star Wars, Lucas visited to the Close Encounters set. According to an interview with Spielberg for Turner Classic Movies, the visit did little to allay Lucas’ concerns:

“He said, ‘Oh my God, your movie is going to be so much more successful than Star Wars! This is gonna be the biggest hit of all time. I can’t believe this set. I can’t believe what you’re getting, and oh my goodness.’ He said, ‘All right, I’ll tell you what. I’ll trade some points with you. You want to trade some points? I’ll give you 2.5% of Star Wars if you give me 2.5% of Close Encounters.’ So I said, ‘Sure, I’ll gamble with that. Great.’”

Lucas was right that Close Encounters would be a hit, but it was Star Wars that would become the standard-bearer for the genre. The film made $775 million at the global box office compared with $304 million for Close Encounters. Adjusted for inflation, Spielberg’s edge could come out to as much as $40 million.

Star Wars: The Muppet Connection

Via StarWars.com

With the release of Muppets Most Wanted in theaters this week, you may see Muppets everywhere. Did you know that there is a long history of Muppet connections to Star Wars? They may seem very different but over the years there have been many fun crossovers between these worlds (or galaxies). Here are a few favorites.

The most important connection between the Muppets and Star Wars is puppeteer/actor/director Frank Oz. Back in 1978 when The Empire Strikes Back was in the works, Frank Oz was best known for performing Muppet characters like Grover, Bert, Miss Piggy, and Fozzie. Then he gave life and voice to the wise old Jedi Master Yoda for that film (then Episode VI and later I, II, and III) and he became a key part of Star Wars history.

Over the years, Sesame Street has had its share of visits from Star Wars actors including James Earl Jones (voice of Darth Vader), Natalie Portman, (Padmé Amidala), Liam Neeson (Qui-Gon Jinn), and Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian). The biggest intergalactic guest stars, though, have to be C-3PO and R2-D2. Our favorite droid duo made appearances in two Sesame Street episodes back in 1980...

The Newest Star Wars Video Game Is Out!

Via Kotaku.com:

If you've ever wanted to make C-3PO part of an elite strike force, now's your chance.

Disney continues to roll out collectible card games with Star Wars branding on them, with today's release of Star Wars Assault Team. It's a free-to-play game for mobile and PC with in-app purchases, where you have to deploy rosters of familiar Star Wars heroes against enemy squads:

Build and Customize a Team:Collect hundreds of character cards to create the ultimate team using such heroes as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Boba Fett, and more.

Advance Heroes: Train, improve and strategically deploy each character's special attacks, making a team even more dominant against ever-powerful enemies.

Player vs. Player Combat:Fight against other players in PvP battles to win extra rewards.

Original Story: Complete all-new missions set between Star Wars:Episode IV A New Hope and Star Wars:Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.

Force Collection, the game that preceded Assault Team, was pretty dull. Hopefully, Assault Team nudges things along a little bit. It's available on Android, iOS and Windows Phone stores.

X-Wing Charity Battle

In 2012, Fantasy Flight launched the wildly popular “X-Wing Miniatures Game.” It is a tactical combat game in which the players control Rebel and Imperial ships on a battlefield. The game features detailed and painted miniatures and recreates Star Wars space combat scenarios scene in the movies. The game has been met with high success and tournaments are common across the country in various comic, collectable, and game stores. Many Star Wars fans have partaken in the game as they relive the epic battles seen on the big screen.

One such fan is Chad Hoefle. He and his team decided to combine their passion for Star Wars with charity. They worked together to create an event that would help the Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society.

Campaign Against Cancer: an X-Wing Miniatures Event (CAC) is a charity fundraiser benefiting the American Cancer Society. The 2014 CAC will be held at Fantasy Games in South Bend, Indiana on March 29, 2014. Admission into the tournament is $15 per person. Due to the fact that some families play this game together, we do offer a discounted admission for spouse and children. In the case of a spouse and/or child joining you at this event, the ticket prices are $15 for the first person, $10 for the first spouse or child, and $5 for each additional child.

The tournament will consist of 100 point squads and be played in a series of 6 swiss-styled rounds. Three rounds, a lunch break, and then another three rounds. Players will be randomly divided into groups of 8 at the start of the day, each group playing 3 rounds and calculating places from 1st through 8th. After lunch, the pilots will be reorganized based upon their performances, and the top 8 will duel for tournament champion. The other pilots will be grouped together with those that performed similarly to themselves and compete for division prizes.

You can register for the event or just show your support by donating at www.x-wing.org. All proceeds for the event will be directly donated to the American Cancer Society. Many people and stores have donated prizes for those playing in the tournament. Some of the prizes include Star Wars artwork, X-Wing game sets, autographed Star Wars books by Troy Denning and Michael Stackpole, and various comic book memorabilia. A full list is also available at the site listed above.

If you have questions, comments, or concerns you can contact Chad directly at Rogue_Leader@X-Wing.org or visit his Facebook page to join the discussion at www.facebook.com/groups/xwingtournemant/.
