Hey there Star Wars: Clone Wars fans! Another new episode "Altar of Mortis" this Friday awaits!! And the Dark Side gets its hands on sweet Ahsoka!

Before the Jedi can leave Mortis, Ahsoka Tano is taken captive in an attempt to entice Anakin Skywalker to join the dark side. Meanwhile, the mysterious Father tries to prevent a disastrous showdown between his children which would upset the increasingly precarious balance of the Force. Two potential destinies become clear in “Altar of Mortis,” the second chapter of a three-part Clone Wars storyline.

Sam Witwer, the rock of hotness who gave his voice and likeness to both the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed games portrays the Force-powered Son in The Clone Wars. “The character of the Son has very similar motivations [to the Emperor],” says Witwer, “You have the Son, who's the dark side of the Force, you have the Daughter, who's the good side of the Force, and then you have the unifying Father, who's the balance between the two. The Son believes that the balance is skewed and that he should have more influence – and if he could have more influence, the galaxy could be a better place. For that reason it is chiefly important for him to get his hands on Anakin and influence him as fast as he can. My character, the Son, absolutely targets Anakin.”

“Clone Wars is continuing to push the limits of what’s possible in Star Wars,” he says. “It is the best kids show ever made. Ever. I take it very seriously. What I love about this Mortis story is that it is all of the Star Wars movies wrapped up into three Clone Wars episodes, and completely mythological. It's going to be something that's really exciting.”

Check out this clip of The Son coming face to face with Anakin:

Ok, again, a special callout to my dear friend and Vfx supervisor Joel Aron and his team!

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

Oh hey there Star Wars and Clone Wars Fans!  There's yet a new episode airing this Friday and Liam Neeson is back reprising his live-action role Qui-Gon!  Liam and I used to live on the same block on the Upper West Side in NYC. He passed by me a couple of times on the street, and oh boy, that man is one TALL DRINK OF WATER!

A mysterious force draws Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano to the distant planet of Mortis, where Anakin learns of his destiny from a family of exceptionally powerful Force-wielders. Convinced that Anakin will bring balance to the Force, the family’s patriarch urges the young Jedi to stay and maintain the equilibrium between the light side and the dark side.

Well lucky me!  I just had a cube visit from MTV's My Life As Liz Liz Lee!  I loved Liz immediately when I met her at New York Comic Con last October when I realized we both had the same Adidas Star Wars tennis shoes!  Liz is also a Star Wars fangirl so I knew it would only be a matter of time before our lightsabers crossed paths!

Liz graduated high school in her home state of Texas last summer and is now going to school full-time here at Pratt in the Big Apple. She took some time out of her busy day during a Hoth snow storm here in NYC to talk to me about her Jabba, joining the mtv.com design team Dating Game and the quotable Carrie Fisher!

LW: So Liz first off, BIENVENUE A NEW YORK! It must be quite a change from Texas! What have been some of your highlights so far? Your struggles?

LL: It's been quite the adjustment. I still haven't exactly mastered the subway system, and dredging through the snow was cool for a brief five minutes but aside from that, things have been pretty great. I had some trouble making friends at first but I've finally found some semblance of a surrogate, New York nerd herd. The food (especially the soup dumplings at Joe Shanghai), the plethora of comic book shops and Toy Tokyo are some of my favorite things here so far. The cold, the lack of tex mex food, and the hipsters have been some of the cons. But overall, the pros outweigh the cons and I finally feel like this is where I belong.

Holy lasers Obi-Wan!  Volkswagen announced today that they have joined Forces with Lucasfilm for the premier of one their Super Bowl XLV ads!  Volkswagen has two 30: second spots showcasing the all-new Passat and the 21st Century Beetle, airing during the 2nd and 4th quarter of the game.

Tim Ellis, Vice President of Marketing, Volkswagen of America, Inc. said “We’ve partnered with Lucasfilm for the all-new Passat ad, leveraging the emotional heritage of both Star Wars™ and Volkswagen to create a memorable moment on an unparalleled platform for two of the vehicles most important to Volkswagen’s growth strategy.” Read More...

OK this one's for all you ladies out there, oh and you geek guys that need something for your fabulous fangirl!!  The lovely Ashley Eckstein, actress and voice of Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, is hoping to change the perception that science fiction and fantasy is not just for the boys.

Ashley, along with her partner Araca Group, formed the company Her Universe, to create merchandise for lady sci-fi fans!  And guess who their first gig is with??  You got it, Lucasfilm baby!

The Star Wars Collection from Her Universe has t-shirts, hats, jewelry and hoodies and well-designed and sized for chicks!  At first, I was a bit skeptical, thinking "how much more Star Wars merchandise do we need in the galaxy?" But once I saw Ashley's stuff at the Her Universe booth at both Star Wars Celebration V and the last New York Comicon I realized why!

Check out this super cool Boba Fett underwear set, it's just like the underoos collection from the olden days:

Imagine if you will Woodsy's closet, full of all things silver lamé, Diane Von Furstenburg and Star Wars.  Now I've been collecting Star Wars apparel for a "few" years now and I have quite the collection.  I even have a Revenge of the Jedi t-shirt from my ILM days which is my pride and joy.  However, all my t-shirts are sized for DUDES and therefore could be cinched with a belt and worn as a dress. WHAT THE FRENCH, TOAST?? Ok people, I think the geekgirl community has made it quite clear that sci-fi ain't just for dudes anymore!!

I'll give you an example.  If you'll take a gander on the below image, you'll see on the left a black Darth Vader hoodie.  My sister was super stoked to give it to me 2 Christmases ago and it was such a thoughtful gift.  It's lined and has rhinestones and is super comfy.  The problem?  Even though it's a "small" it is still WAY TOO BIG and I hardly ever wear it.  Shhhh don't tell her, she'd kill me.  But if you take a look at Ashley's Her Universe Star Wars Hoodie on the right, you'll undoubtedly see it fits me like a glove. CHA-CHING!!

You can check out Ashley's line here at www.heruniverse.com. Ashley's company has also announced a deal to create a Syfy-branded collection.  What the Frak???  Battlestar Galactica??? Oh yes, "God has a plan."

My one request from Ashley is a female stormtrooper costume for curvy chicks.  Can I send you my measurements?  Then I can die happily...

Well hello there my fellow Clone Wars fans!  This Friday Cartoon Network is airing the final chapter of the three-part Clone Wars arc! Sent to track down the mysterious figure behind the deaths of several Jedi, Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi find themselves on the trail of Count Dooku’s newest apprentice – the monstrous Savage Opress. However, Dooku and Asajj Ventress discover that their creation has a will of his own, and that he has grown more powerful than either of them had anticipated – perhaps even more powerful than the combined forces of the Jedi and the Sith.

Driven by the Machiavellian machinations of Count Dooku, the series’ various villains come face to face at last in a climactic clash of red sabers. Dooku, Opress and Ventress – all are manifestations of evil, yet each is so distinct. It’s not until these three titans are brought together in the heat of conflict, however, that their nuances and differences become truly clear.

I recently had the pleasure of hanging out w/my new West Coast Bff Bonnie Burton - Sr. Editor at Starwars.com and awesome chick!  Step aside Carrie Fisher, there's a new sheriff in town!!

Q - How did you land your awesome gig at Lucasfilm?

As unbelievable as this sounds, I answered an ad on Craig's List! I had been a geek girl all my life but never in a zillion years did I think I would be working for The Maker himself. I almost didn't go to the job interview because I didn't think I'd get the gig. But I couldn't pass up a visit to Lucasfilm HQ. So I went and ended up getting the job! Seven years later, I'm still in shock. I think they were looking for someone who represented a more mainstream, geek girl sensibility and I fit the bill.

I worked in the dotcom industry as an entertainment & kids editor for eWorld, @Home Network, Excite, and AOL, as well as writing freelance for everything from Wired to Bust magazine. My site Grrl.com also has plenty of geektastic content including my vlog "Ask Bonnie" where I'd answer questions about everything from ghost hunting tips to Japanese candy reviews. Either way, I'm grateful every day to have a job where I can write about Wookiees and create content for three generations of fans worldwide.

Attention Clone Wars fans!  An all-new episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars airs this Friday on the Cartoon Network at 8:30 PT/ET.  In this episode, Count Dooku visits the witches of Dathomir, seeking to replace Asajj Ventress with a new, deadlier apprentice. Little does he know that his new protégée – the formidable Savage Opress – has been selected by Ventress herself, and that the Nightsisters have used their witchcraft to transform the warrior into a monstrous killer without remorse, compassion or loyalty.

“I've really fallen for Ventress, and here the audience gets to learn a lot about her history. She's an extremely complicated character,” says Katie Lucas, writer of the three-part Nightsisters arc. “She’s a cold-hearted harpy, but she has good reason to be – and now she’s displaying a much more independent side of herself. Ventress is nobody's pawn anymore. She finally owns herself. I grew up on Buffy and Tank Girl, so writing for strong females is second nature to me. I listened to a lot of early Hole and The Distillers albums to inspire me while writing these stories; I really wanted to tap into that visceral female rage, and Courtney Love’s snarl certainly tears that right out of you.” Read More...

OK fans, did I not just list this announcement as one of my TOP TEN from 2010?  After you're done doing kartwheels down the hallway, catch your breathe and read this!  At 11:30 am PT today coming from the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vega$, Lucasfilm announced the official release of the Blu-ray set coming to a galaxy not too fary away this September 2011! Winning big - woo hoo! Read More...

Happy New Year everybody!  Thought we'd take a quick look back on my year in Star Wars for 2010.  Believe me, there is a lot I'm leaving out but I felt these were truly the highlights of this past galactic year!

1. I saw Wishful Drinking for the last time on Broadway, and this is when my title of Official Carrie Fisher cute stalker kicked into gear, for better AND for worse.

2. Adidas came out with an Originals Star Wars collection! I got the LAST pair of micropacers at the NYC Soho store! There were stormtroopers and Darth Vader in Times Square!

Well Happy New Year to all you Star Wars/Clone Wars fans!  In case you missed out on the special Clone Wars screenings last month, here's your chance to see these all new episodes again! We've got a couple of clips to share too just to give you that extra tease...

Asajj Ventress returns to Dathomir, a place she once called home, in “Nightsisters."  The first of a three-part story arc, “Nightsisters” pulls back the curtain to reveal bitter rivalries, seething resentments, shattered alliances and more – including the revelation of a dark sorcery as mystical and powerful as the Force itself. Wielded by the witches of far-off Dathomir, this sinister magic poses a threat to both the Jedi and the Sith, and a challenge to the delicate balance of the Force.

Check out an awesome clip here of Ben and Obi-Wan fighting with Ventress:

Happy holidays Star Wars fans! Well, since tis the season I feel it’s only fair to mention the Star Wars Holiday Special. It originally aired on CBS on November 17th, 1978 and ran 120 minutes. All the main actors except Alec Guinness were in it. George wrote the story for the special but had to go back to work on Empire Strikes Back so he had no more involvement. Here’s the tagline I took from IMDB “Luke Skywalker and Han Solo battle evil Imperial forces to help Chewbacca reach his imperiled family on the Wookiee planet - in time for Life Day, their most important day of the year!”

Ok, how many of you have seen it from start to end? How many own it? I caved and bought myself a bootleg copy. I had friends over to watch it and we came up with a drinking game to make it a smoother watch, but sadly the alcohol did not help out and we were pained to the end. Why George why?

To his defense, George reportedly said at an Australian fan convention, "If I had the time and a sledgehammer, I would track down every copy of that show and smash it." I personally heard Carrie Fisher tell an audience that she puts on the Star Wars Holiday Special when she’s having a party and she wants people to leave. Ouch. So the team here at MTV Geek has helped me come up with 8 ideas that could have happened had George been less involved in all of Star Wars! Read More...

Happy holidays Clone Wars fans!  If you missed out on the theatrical Clone Wars screening introducing the new villian Savage Opress, you'll get your chance to see these new episodes again!

And check out this brand new trailer for Season Three:

It's amazing right?  I think we'll all be blown away! May the Force be with us all!

I went to the Lucasfilm Holiday party! I got drunk, I slurred, I said inappropriate things to people and was poured into a taxi at the end of the night. Basically I haven’t changed a bit since the last time I went.

This year’s party theme was Celebrations Around The World and just as always, the party did not disappoint. My dear friend Kimberly took me as her date! We entered the San Francisco Concourse Pavilion to a Brazilian Carnivale band dancing and playing drums as I was given a handful of green carnivale necklaces. I’m not gonna lie, I had already been to a couple of “pre-parties” so by the time I arrived, I was more than ready to rock it with my hot silver-lame halter top. I saw old friends and it was so great to catch up with them. I hung out quite a bit in the beer garden and was served huge beers in beer steins which I felt compelled to finish. Oh my. Read More...
