General Grevious is on the offensive in the new "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" episode "A Necessary Bond" airing Saturday, November 24th at 9:30am ET/PT on Cartoon Network. According to a Lucasfilm press release:
EW reports that Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy wants to put out "two or three" Star Wars movies every year. Remember that wait that felt like forever between "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi"? Now it'd just be like "oh in a few months we get a new one."
Are you a big enough "Star Wars" fan that you'd catch 2-3 new installments every year? Well yeah -- I guess if you're a fan, you probably would.
But how about the ordinary person-on-the-street? Read More...
So remember when Obi Wan cut Darth Maul in half and sent him sailing into the abyss? That was a cool right? Well those of you familiar with "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" know that Mauly survived and was outfitted with a pair of robot legs and is currently wreaking havoc on that far, far away galaxy. Well, according to this bonkers statue from Gentle Giant, Mr. Maul must've rented "Gremlins 2" while waiting to be rescued and got the idea to try out a set of crazy intense spider legs to exact his vengeance of those Jedi scum.
We've seen all sorts of geeky proposals lately, but how would you create the perfect engagement ring for a Star Wars fan? This is the question tattoo and graphic artists Joe P. asked himself when he decided it was time to pop the question and the incredible R2D2 ring you see above is the final result. Read More...

They tell me to have faith. And by “they” I mean “them” and I by “them” I mean the same folks who promised me the prequels would be awesome. You know these folks – delusional, hopeful, steeped in the Lucas lore yet probably didn’t read "Han Solo and the Lost Legacy". The same people who didn’t blink at the idea of midichlorians and justified Jar Jar Binks screw up in the Senate as reason for his existence. These people are wrong and will be again. Or will they?

Ever since the announcement that Disney nabbed Lucasfilm we've been chomping at the bit for any news about casting in Episodes VII, VIII and IX -- and well, thanks to this leaked vid from Screen Junkies it looks like we've finally got an idea of the direction Disney will take "Star Wars". And I for one couldn't be more excited.
The Tenth Doctor is back -- well, sort of. Former "Doctor Who" star David Tennant is lending his voice to the Cartoon Network hit "Star Wars: Clone Wars"! He will be playing a droid named Huyang, in an episode airing Nov. 10th called "A Test Of Strength."
The character is described as one who will greatly impact the lives of a group of young Jedi who were just setting out to create their own lightsabers in the previous episode. Read More...
From what we’re told, these are still just discussions at this point, but serious enough that something could be announced at any time and create ripples throughout the entertainment industry. The Lucasfilm acquisition has been reported as taking as few as 6 months to complete. On the other hand, Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger has until 2015 on his current contract, and he waited about 3 years in between the acquisitions of Marvel and Lucasfilm, so we may be without firm news on this for some time.

You know, after all the coverage about this Disney/Lucasfilm/Episode VII thing, I just couldn't put my finger on what was missing...something to make it all seem finally REAL! And now I have found it --
