...the final trailer for The Rise Of Skywalker just dropped. I'm very much looking forward to it, but I'm also looking forward to the end of this drawn-out saga. I haven't gone for any of the peripheral stories, preferring to stick to official 'chapters' and limiting my interest investment and giving that storytelling universe a finite lifespan. Tidy.

The array of products featured in the Star Wars x Le Creuset collection is impressive: there's a "Han Solo in Carbonite" roaster, a Porg pie bird (a ceramic bird you put in the middle of your pies to let the steam out while they're baking), Death Star and Millennium Falcon silicone trivets, Dutch ovens and mini cocottes that come in BB-8, R2-D2 and C-3PO finishes, and a Darth Vader Dutch oven.

Seth Green's twisted mind and some great stop-motion animation parody the blockbuster films.

You know, for as much shit as I fling at Lucas for his incessant reworking and 'enhancing' of the original trilogy, I really have no business being as impressed as I am with this most excellent take on the final Obi-Wan/Vader showdown. According to the notes it was made as a VFX and camera test, but it's all fan gravy as far as I'm concerned.

Oh yes. Embed (and my initial read on it all) after the jump, if you care.

Let's go through all of Han Solo's major moments in the Original Trilogy where he has to make some key decisions and we can decide.

A "blaster" used by Harrison Ford's character Han Solo in the film Return of the Jedi has sold at auction in New York for $550,000.

Plenty of other info on collectibles and Star Wars props in the BBC article.

Back in 1982, a group of young Star Wars fans trekked into the California desert to crash the outdoor set of Return of the Jedi, and this seven-minute video of scenes from the Sail Barge, featuring Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Slave Leia and Boba Fett, was the result.

Uploaded to The Pirate Bay yesterday by an anonymous user, the "The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit" is, according to their own description "basically The Last Jedi minus Girlz Powah and other silly stuff". The resulting movie is (wait for it …) 46 minutes long.

These will only take a few seconds of your time. Unless you play them several times.

First, the John Williams' "Cantina Theme" from the original Star Wars film.

Now, the "Imperial March" theme.

The Serbian a cappella choir Viva Vox performs a medley of Star Wars themes with just their voices. All the orchestral parts are there, and they do a great job of executing. The group is a lot larger than you can tell from the visuals here. The visuals are almost as catchy as the music.

If you look closely, you'll see a dentist in this scene. Dr. J. Steven Abernathy commissioned an ad for a laser root canal treatment offered by JS Abernathy Dental, with six locations in Arkansas and Florida. The floss is strong with this one. Whether or not the laser technique takes the pain out of root canals, it's clear they have taken the pain out of watching a root canal ad.

Yes, we know it's not James Earl Jones. But it is a pretty damned miserable impersonation.
Still, you must learn your math skills somehow.

Hey, remember how Luke and the rebels went zipping thru the trench that goes around the middle of the Death Star to get to the exhaust port that leads to the reactor that makes the whole thing go FOOM? Yeah, that's not where you thought it was. It's nowhere near the equator, and they even showed you that in the pre-attack meeting.

Let R2 help you navigate your mornings more successfully with this Star Wars R2-D2 Coffee Press. He's happy to help a human in need. Put your grounds and boiling water in his glass body, brew for a few minutes, plunge, and he'll serve up 32 oz. of piping hot coffee. For folks playing along at home, that's 4 cups, so even if your motivator is so bad that the Jawas put you back on the scrap heap, he can still get you going.

My single favorite line in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is when C3P0 re-introduces himself to Han Solo by saying "You probably don't recognize me because of the red arm." I almost peed in the theater.

So yeah, what was the story with his red arm? Turns out it wasn't just a throwaway gag but a nod to something much deeper and philosophically challenging - the sentience of droids and their station in the universe.

A while back the intarwebs were suddenly taken by a craze for garlic bread (possibly originating from this facebook post in 2011) and that craze kicked into high gear with this phony tweet from DMX and gave us memetic gems like this and this.

Really, it was just a matter of time before the craze crashed into The Force Awakens. Glorious.
