“Postal Apocalypse” is back, folks! Sorry for the delay. I could tell you an interesting lie about mutant raccoons scouring the post-apocalyptic landscape, but in all honesty I was just moving, and it took all my meager resources just to edit io9 and write Game of Thrones recaps that infuriated you. But I’m back now,…
Or, as it was known then, Revenge of the Jedi. Either way, according to the Academy Film Archive, this brief teaser trailer released in the U.K. in 1982 was probably the first ever look at the third chapter in the Star Wars saga, and now you can see it for yourself.
Given the resurgence in the popularity of records, Disney didn’t really have to do much to sell copies of The Force Awakens soundtrack now that it’s finally available on vinyl, months after the film’s release. But if you still need a reason to drop $50 on another copy, the records feature 3D holograms etched right…
One of the most jaw-dropping shots of the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was a group of Imperial walkers storming a beach. They obviously weren’t the same as the AT-ATs from The Empire Strikes Back, but what were they? Now we know.
Garden gnomes were never exactly a trendy addition to any home, but if you must fill your garden with tiny ceramic characters, at least go with this 17-inch-tall R2-D2 statue instead of a bunch of creepy trolls.
The amount of things that go into making a movie work is almost unfathomable. One that very often gets overlooked, though, is sound—not music, sound. Every snap, crackle, and pop in a movie has been expertly crafted and this new supercut of sound in Star Wars: The Force Awakens provides just a taste.
You probably can’t get away with watching movies at your desk all day at work. But since most websites are still totally acceptable, warm up your scrolling finger, and go to town on this incredible fan tribute that sees the entire original Star Wars: A New Hope turned into one long scrollable schematic.
Camera-mounted drones can be used for all sorts of wonderful videos. But I’m pretty sure the most wonderful use is to create own X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter dogfight videos—because man, this is one brilliant idea.
Over the course of this series, we’ve talked a lot about how to construct Stormtrooper Armor, but we haven’t talked a whole lot about what to do with it once you’re done. You might be itching to throw the costume on and share your love of Star Wars with the world, but there’s some things to consider first.
If you’ve been to a major convention around the United States, there’s a good chance that you’ve bumped into Roxy the Rancor, a 1:1 scale prop replica of Jabba’s pet beast from Return of the Jedi. Now, its creators have built a new major prop that you’ll see on the convention floor soon!
With Episode VIII a year and a half away, leaks and spoilers are all we’re going to hear about for awhile. Naturally, that leads to a lot of fake nonsense floating around the internet in an attempt to capture the avid attention of Star Wars fans jonesing for an info fix. Case in point: the supposed subtitle of the…
It’s only Thursday, but you’re probably more than ready for the weekend. If you’re feeling a bit down, or if you just want to see something awesome, this quick character profile of Lego Poe Dameron will do the trick.
While Disney’s Star Wars canon has been spreading itself across all sorts of mediums, it’s mainly focused on books, so we don’t really know what a lot of these fascinating new characters look like. That makes it all the more interesting when we finally get “official” looks at some of these book-based heroes.
If you thought Star Wars Battlefront was insubstantial, you’re not alone. The folks running EA agree, and they say they plan to add more content when the next one comes along.
If what you’re about to read is true, you may want to save it for the theater on December 15, 2017. A source claims to have seen Rian Johnson filming a crucial action scene for Star Wars Episode VIII and it sounds jaw-droppingly cool.
Fabrice Mathieu turned Alfred Hitchcock’s North By Northwest into a film that includes Star Wars characters and it’s totally bizarre and so weird that ... I kind of like it? I mean, it’s just stupid fun to see Cary Grant run away from a TIE fighter, and stare at R2-D2, and wonder where in the hell he is with all this…
A few months ago at C2E2, Marvel announced a prequel comic tie-in for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story... a prequel-prequel, if you will. But now, reports are circulating that the comic might not be happening after all.
The Star Wars sound effects team does a brilliant job at breathing life into droids like BB-8 and R2-D2 using nothing but bloops and beeps.
