Don't hold your breath waiting for a sequel Star Wars trilogy. While there have been rumors of it possibly happening around 2019, Lucas is officially retired and confirmed that they would "never" happen to a TMZ camera man. While most fans dream of a sequel trilogy, Lucas has always said that the Skywalker saga ends in ROTJ. There were once plans to do nine movies, but those changed when Lucas com... more.

If I had a Kinect, I'd probably be pretty excited for this.

The trail... more.

That's Freddie Mercury sitting on Vader's shoulders. The only thing that could make this more epic is some explosions, dinosaurs with guns, and maybe zombies.... more.

If this is true, then that really puts a different perspective on the making of Star Wars. Someone died to make the movie awesome by overheating inside R2-D2 before they found the invincible Kenny Baker.... more.

Now, if I were Sheldon Cooper I'd be compelled to point out that an AT-AT should really be dropping a snow speeder at Lord Vader's feet. Sure, we saw an AT-AT on Endor but a snow speeder would have been more fitting.... more.

The sunglasses/YEAAAAA opening to CSI Miami naturally became an internet meme, and now it's Star Wars turn to get a version of it. Making fun of Vader losing his limbs is almost as timeless as making fun of Batman's dead parents.... more.
