Happy Thanksgiving everyone! So before we all leave town to spend time with the fam, eat, drink and watch TV on the couch all weekend, I wanted to share the latest Clone Wars clips for this Friday's new episode!

Here's a quick synopsis: Read More...

Ok so once again, it's that time year, time to sit down, relax with a bowl of popcorn and watch the Star Wars Holiday Special, OH YEAH! And while you're watching this painfully long, I mean EXHILARATING piece of art, you may have some down time to do some Internets shopping. And well, Woodsy has her favorite Star Wars items this year for you all to consider!!

1. PLUSH CHEWIE!! The big one! I fell in love with this 24" furry creature last February at the Toy Fair in NYC!! You can get it at www.thinkgeek.com. NO, GET IT.

2. Hasbro's Darth Vader Ultimate FX Lightsaber. I wore this out Halloween weekend when I was classic Leia in the snow storm and it was awesome! It has really genuine lightsaber sound effects and the red is spot on. I thought I was the perfect Princess Leia ever until some punk kid's mother called me out, accusing me of having the wrong colored saber. I could only feel sorry for this kid for having such a critical mom. Get this at Hasbro.com. Read More...

Hello Clone Wars fans! Another new episode hits the airwaves this Friday...and that means more clips!

Here's the DL:

The fierce General Krell orders Captain Rex and the clone troopers of the 501st to conquer a heavily fortified Umbaran airbase. It is absolutely essential the clones succeed, for the rest of the planetary invasion depends on it. Krell will accept nothing less than victory, but the mission seems impossible – the clones must march overland through hostile territory and monstrously advanced enemy technology. Unless the clones can use their ingenuity to counter these threats, it will be a certain suicide mission.

Check out these awesome clips:

Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Season 4 ep. 8, The General' Clip 1

Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Season 4 ep. 8, The General' Clip 2

This second installment in the epic four-part Umbara story arc raises the stakes and is filled with big screen cinematic action – and with good reason. Helming the episode as director is Walter Murch. A renowned film editor and sound designer, Murch won an Academy Award for his sound editing work on Apocalypse Now, and an unprecedented double-Oscar win for both sound and picture editing for The English Patient. A longtime friend and creative collaborator with George Lucas, Murch worked with Lucas on the films THX 1138 and American Graffiti. He quite literally wrote the book on film editing, the influential In the Blink of an Eye.

Don't miss it! The General, a new episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, airing at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT Friday, October 28th on Cartoon Network.

Star Wars crafting superstar Bonnie Burton teaches you how to make Yoda puppets!

So if for some ODD reason you missed my MTV Geek live stream last Sunday from New York Comic Con, you can still watch it here on MTV Geek! We did a Star Wars Craft demo with the author of The Star Wars Craft Book Bonnie Burton! Also joining us was Ashley Eckstein, voice of Ahsoka Tano in Clone Wars and founder of Her Universe, MTV Geek's own Liz Lee and The Nerdist's Jonah Ray! My apologies for looking pregant in what I thought was a cool hooded top, somehow I always manage to dress horribly on camera! WTF? I SWEAR I DON'T LOOK LIKE THAT IN PERSON!

Star Wars Craft Demo Part 1

We had a lovely half an hour of making Yoda puppets, we changed the original instructions to make it more camera and user-friendly but still had a blast! You can follow along using the handy-dandy chart below: Read More...

This Star Wars/Indiana Jones mashup is by Paul Gulacy

Some of you may remember my review last year on the first book in the Star Wars Art Series, Visions -- well, now Lucasfilm and Abrams Publishing have released the second book in the series, Star Wars Art: Comics!

Bringing together the very best from the entire history of Star Wars comics as well as a dazzling collection of new art created just for the book, Star Wars Art: Comics features pieces from comic luminaries such as Al Williamson, Adam Hughes, John Cassaday, Sam Kieth, Mike Mignola, Paul Pope, Frank Quitely, Dave Dorman, Bill Sienkiewicz, and many more. Best of all, the art in Star Wars Art: Comics was hand-picked and curated by George Lucas!

The illustrations from Star Wars Art: Comics are all beautiful, hilarious, and thought provoking! Once again, Lucasfilm has outdone itself with this book. My favorite one is by Paul Gulacy, where Han Solo and Chewie are running away from the Death Star just like Indiana Jones ran away from that huge stone ball in Raiders. They just can't seem to shake these things -- so frakking funny and going on my wall!

Book Of Sith author Daniel Wallace with Laurel Woods at NYCC

Some of you may remember my MTV Geek online interview with Daniel Wallace at last year's NYCC where he talked about his book The Jedi Path. Daniel took time out of his busy day at the Con to stop by MTV Geek's HQ and say hi! We chatted over some black coffee as I looked into his dreamy eyes as he told me what he's been up to. And well now Daniel's gone over to the dark side and has written a book on how the dark side lives in his new book Book of Sith - a collection of Sith texts written throughout galactic history.If you remember the insane packaging of The Jedi Path, you won't be disappointed in the Book of Sith's packaging. Here are the official specs:

The 160-page book features a faux-leather cover with debossing and heat stamping. Five removable artifacts—including a scrap of a Sith burial shroud, a battle map from the Great Galactic War, a diagram of Palpatine’s master plan, an Empire propaganda poster, and a note from Luke Skywalker—are tucked within the pages of the book. The book’s elegant design showcases original illustrations by acclaimed STAR WARS® artists, including Paul Allan Ballard, Jeff Carlisle, Chris Reiff, Chris Trevas, Russell Walks, Terryl Whitlatch, and the illustrators of Aristia/Hive Studios. The book and two accompanying mementoes—a Sith crystal and a Sith talisman—are enclosed in a mechanized blood-red and black Holocron case, which opens at the touch of a button with flashing lights and sounds. Dan let me hold his precious prototype here, seriously people this thing is AWESOME:

Hey there, Clone Wars fans! So my head is still buzzing from last weekend's New York Comic-Con as I was able to see so much Star Wars stuff! And yet there's always more to come, with this trailer just released from Lucasfilm, the Darth Maul Returns trailer, Darth is coming back in Spring of 2012 to The Clone Wars and he's gonna be bad!!

Here's the official deets on Darth Maul's return:

Darth Maul, the sinister Sith Lord who amped up the dark side in 1999's Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, returns to the Saga this spring in Star Wars: The Clone Wars!

Revered by fans for his striking red and black tattooed-face, graceful but lethal fighting style, and signature double-bladed lightsaber, Maul was believed killed by Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi at the end of Episode I. In the Star Wars universe, however, one must never underestimate the power of the dark side!

Check out the awesome clip here:

“The decision to continue Darth Maul’s story was something that came directly from George,” says Dave Filoni, Supervising Director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. “We all agreed that his return needed to be unique, unexpected and revenge filled. We don’t know what his outcome will be, and as a fan - that’s exciting.”

While fans await Darth Maul's return to The Clone Wars, they'll soon be able to experience the excitement of his original introduction to the Star Wars Saga when Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace is released in theaters on February 10, 2012 in spectacular 3D!

Ok, seriously, aren't we all ready for a little 3D action???

Check out The Clone Wars Fridays on The Cartoon Network at 8pm ET/PT!
