If you have a Star Wars fan on your list, and they have a digital device that has the Dark Horse Digital app installed, then you will really want to consider getting that special person on your list 153 single-issues of Star Wars comics for $100.
Because we can’t let the Disney buys Star Wars topic die.
During the final month of 2009 a Finnish company released an iOS app that would soon sweep the world like a flock of seagulls. Since that time different versions of the game have been released with one just coming out last week. And what an opportune time it was for Rovio to release Angry Birds Star Wars. Will the game hold up to it’s high reputation while also bringing the heavy on Star Wars references? Your Major Spoiler’s review awaits!
The upcoming new Star Wars trilogy coming from Disney has found an Oscar-winning writer to pen the script, and has already sent in a treatment for the three. For details, take the jump.
GAZE INTO THE FACE OF SEVERE MULLET LEIA!
I’m sure that look will replace her ‘slave’ variant at Comicon soon enough. Either way, it seems that even the most casual Star Wars knows that there are already a number of stories designed to be the (unofficial/non-canonical) future of the Star Wars universe, from Dark Empire to Legacy and back. (Of course, since they are living ‘long, long ago in ‘a blah blah blah fishcakes, we ARE the future of Star Wars.) Even so, there have been a number of attempts to chronicle what happens after the Battle of Endor and the death of Emperor Platypus. Most have been somewhat hampered by slavish devotion to either continuity or the Skywalker bloodline, but some of them have been relatively successful at recapturing the magic inherent in the summer of ’77.

…DRRRRROP, asking: Should Disney use one of the several already-existing storyline futures of Star Wars to relaunch the proposed Episodes VII, VIII and IX? If so, which one would work best?
Ahsoka escorts a group of younglings to Ilum, where they will learn from Yoda and undergo a crucial rite-of-passage: the construction of their lightsabers. They grapple with both physical and inner challenges as they face the dangerous task ahead of them in “The Gathering,” airing this Saturday, November 3rd at 9:30am ET/PT on Cartoon Network.
Within 24 hours of the announcement that Disney will buy Lucasfilm Ltd., adult movie director Axel Braun and leading adult studio Vivid Entertainment (www.vivid.com) stepped up pre-production for the sequels to their blockbuster film ‘Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody.’ Released in early 2012, the parody shattered all sales records for adult spoofs, and became the highest selling adult DVD ever.
The acquisition of Lucasfilm and related stuff by the Disney corporation has led to lots of discussion on the internet (and even here at Major Spoilers.) The biggest announcement is that Disney intends to continue the Star Wars saga with Episode Seven in a couple of years, meaning that they’ll need to get cracking on a script and a crew and all that jazz in order to get the picture to market on time. With that in mind, Stephen and I began wondering last night who will lead the film from out of the heads of the creative types and onto the various digital projection screens of the world…
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wants QUIET ON THE SET, asking: Who should direct the newly-announced Star Wars: Episode VII?
Disney Parks totally took advantage of an old commercial, reworking it to fit with the news that Disney is buying Lucasfilm.
With the announcement that The Walt Disney Company has purchased Lucasfilm, half of the Internet is very nervous that Disney could monkey around with the property and ruin it completely. We’ve taken a moment to reflect on the pros and cons of this concern, and have discovered five ways Disney could both ruin and improve the Star Wars movies at the same time.
Tinfoil hats abound on the internet right now about the bombshell revelation that George Lucas is selling LucasArts, ILM and his lucky R2D2 boxer shorts to Disney for over 4 billion dollars (that’s with a ‘B’, and that’s also more money than Stephen and I have ever SEEN in our cumulative 8 decades on the planet.) Given all the various permutations involved, it’s easy to find something to love or hate about this situation, and there are already people brayint that the Golden Age of Star Wars is over. (Most of them are writing it “starwars”, though, so I ignore them for improper formatting.) Here in the QOTD, though, we try to keep on the sunnier side of life, even when Pete got turned into a horny toad, and the panoramic vistas of the how-awesome-could-this-be future are stretching out before us like Eel O’Brien mud-wrestling Ralph Dibny and Reed Richards at the Hooters in Ottumwa, Iowa…
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) thinks that hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for the snark of the internet, asking: What are you most looking forward to if/when the Disney purchase of Lucasfilm goes through?
