Nineteen years after the formation of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke's Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire. Although Obi-Wan sacrifices himself in a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader, his former apprentice, Luke proves that the Force is with him by destroying the Empire's dreaded Death Star.

Many Star Wars fans are marathoning all the Star Wars films before they see The Force Awakens. Seriously, I sort of respect that sort of thing but it doesn't really work for me. In days past i'd do that and then go see the new film with the fresh thoughts of the old ones in my mind. Often it creates a very hard situation where since the thought of the other films are so fresh, I compare it more than I would if some time has past since my last viewing. That said, if you can marathon films and enjoy the new ones, more power to you and if you want to do it faster than ever check out the fan edit above of all 6 Star Wars films at the same time.


Star Wars week continues with this hilarious new Saturday Night Live short. They really capture the disparity between kids and nerdy adult toy collectors. I really want to keep all my awesome stuff behind glass too because dammit, these toys are not for playing with!


This 60 minutes inside look features John Williams scoring the new Force Awakens opening scene. It also features and interview with JJ as well as an all new never before seen scene with BB8 and Rey. It's a scene from the film and doesn't spoil anything, but skip over this entire video if you want to avoid seeing parts of the film beforehand. The tone and feel of the shot is 100% Star Wars and if the whole movie is like this, we are all in for a good time!


The new Star Wars Force Awakens trailer dropped. I liked it but it surprised me. We now have a few questions answered in that Finn was/is a Stormtrooper and that Kylo Ren(the sith in the trailer) wants to finish what Darth Vader started. It shows a ton more footage and what I imagine is some of John Williams new score. Han Solo seems to be discussing the force with Finn and Rey which is odd because I always imagined people knew what happened after the battle the moon of Endor.

I really don't know where this movie is headed and at this point, I don't think that's a bad thing.

If you don't drop your thoughts on the trailer in the comment section the dark side will win.... Read All


It's so incredible and I nearly teared up. Yeah, just watch it because this movie looks absolutely amazing.

As always, discussion in the comments.
