Star Wars spin-off posters that should... OMG, LOOK AT ROGUE ONE!
The new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is finally here, but how many other 'Star Wars stories' are on the way? What if there were a host of other TV-related spin-offs in the pipeline? Ever wondered what those posters might look like? I think you know where I'm going with this...

Star Wars IX to be filmed "a long time ago" and "in a galaxy far, far away"
Following on from director Colin Trevorrow's recent revelation that he wants to film Star Wars Episode IX "in space", he has also just announced that he plans to make the film "a long time ago" and "in a galaxy far, far away" making it unclear at the moment whether or not he can tell the difference between reality and fiction.

Star Wars is dead, long live Star Wars

Star Wars is dead, long live Star Wars
The Force awoke a few days later than most for me, but on Monday 21st December, I sat in a small cinema in Hammersmith and readied my body for Star Wars. Sweaty palms? Check. Slightly elevated heartbeat? Check. Stupid grin plastered on face despite nearby proximity of colleagues who consider me an otherwise professional and functional human being? Check. There are have been few cinematic experiences in my career where I have legitimately broken out in goosebumps, but Episode VII was one of them: if a new Star Wars trilogy can no longer be considered a once in a lifetime event, then it's still a rare treat to savour. Excitement, thy name is The Force Awakens.

But then a funny thing happened when the movie started rolling.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens might just be the best film of the last 30 years or so…

Wait, HOW long is Kylo Ren's arm in that Force Awakens poster?

17 things we still don't know about Star Wars: The Force Awakens
There is still much we don't know about the new Star Wars movie. What is it called? Who will direct it? Which characters from the original trilogy will return? I have just done a cursory Google search and found that all of my previous questions do in fact have answers. But I'm pretty sure the following ones don't.

Fuck off did C3PO have a silver leg

Fuck off did C3PO have a silver leg
Today I made a most unsettling discovery and now I'm sharing it with you in the vain hope that it'll make the madness I'm currently feeling feel less intense. I still almost can't believe it's true, despite photo evidence that appears to confirm it. No. It can't be right. It just can't be. I've seen Star Wars about 25 times and I never noticed this. Fuck off does C3PO have one silver leg.
