I Could Have Been in the Next Star Wars Movie

star-wars-1

Oh, fate, why are you such a cruel mistress? Okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic but here is some cool (and disappointing to me personally) news I learned from my sister via Facebook. The next Star Wars movie will have parts filmed near Temple, Texas. This is a place I moved from just last year after being there for more than a decade. I could have had my chance to be an extra in an epic Star Wars film but no… they had to wait until I moved away. Now I live in the New York City area where you’d think I’d be in a better position for rubbing elbows with movie stars but anyone who’s ever been to Central Texas can tell you that part of the country definitely looks like it could be another planet. (I kid, I kid). Honestly, it’s a good location and it would…

Fan Film: WAY TO THE REBELLION

WAY TO THE REBELLION - A Star Wars Fan Film

Here’s a great story from Wong Fu Productions, a personal favorite of mine. In this fan film, Way to the Rebellion, we get the story of two seemingly unlikely heroes who get caught up in the battle between the Empire and the Rebellion. I won’t ruin the plot for you because really, this is a fantastic story. The acting is fluid and natural, the props and costumes are great, the filming and cinematography is professional-grade and the music is awesome too. All around, it’s just a great fan film. It hits all the check marks you want to see from a film like this. The story is intriguing and will leave you wanting more. The Empire is expanding. Now these heroes will join the fight.

SWTOR Follow Up Analysis from EA’s FY16 Report

EA's FY16 Report

EA’s Annual Report in the form of its Form 10-K filed with the SEC this week talks a bit about SWTOR. Where does it stand now? Is it gaining more attention? swtoreconomics had some opinions to share on the matter and we think you’ll find it interesting too: “Star Wars: The Old Republic has received a lot of attention for its episodic story content cycle that began in October 2015 with the release of Knights of the Fallen Empire and opinions vary widely.  There is little doubt that the financial success or failure of this content cycle will be the largest factor in determining the future path of the game.  There is one paragraph that provides essentially all of the information in the entire 97 page report regarding Star Wars: The Old Republic specifically: For fiscal year 2016, service and other revenue was $1,899 million, primarily driven by FIFA Ultimate Team and Star Wars: The Old Republic. Service and other revenue for fiscal year 2016…

Differences Between The Light and Dark Side of the Force

should-you-be-on-the-dark-side-or-the-light-side-of-the-force-707130

How much do you really know about the differences between the Light side and Dark side of the Force? We know that the Sith and the Jedi are two opposite ends of the spectrum and that it is important to keep balance within the Force. Still, how much do you really know about the two and the differences in the two? While there are small things like the colors of lightsabers, there are many more, deeper differences between the two sides. Also not surprisingly, there are similarities. After all, the Force is made up of both the Light and the Dark side. You can’t have the Force without both sides and this is a very important part of understanding the sides. The video is just under 8 minutes long so of course, it doesn’t mention every single thing that makes the Sith and Jedi different but it does hit on…

Has the Time Finally Come for a SW Themed Mobile Slot Machine?

2d32c077-6afc-4b57-818c-a9125a709bf0

As Lisa put it, games of chance have a major role to play in the Star Wars universe, even if they are not explicitly shown anywhere. Who knows, maybe Lucas – and now Disney – didn’t want to risk to be rated anything but G, or PG, which is almost the same. But we all know that Han Solo won the Millenium Falcon in a game of Corellian Spike, which is a variant of the universe’s most popular game of chance, sabacc. The only direct reference to gambling – betting, and a bit of dice – was in Episode I, when Qui-Gon won the cash needed for the parts, and the slave boy Anakin, in a bet on the pod races. And it was a major source of suspense, I must say. With gambling playing such an important part in the Star Wars universe, I wonder when the first SW-themed…

Disney: Make a Movie/Series about the 501st Legion

Disney Make a Movie or Series about the 501st Legion

I love the 501st. Their enthusiasm and dedication to Star Wars is like nothing else. I’ve you’ve seen or met them in person, you know just what I mean. In fact, these days when I think of Star Wars, or Star Wars fans, the 501st definitely rank up there with things that come to mind. I know I’m not the only one to feel that way but a recent petition on Change.org shows us another fan has a great idea. What if Disney made a movie or series about the 501st? This petition explains it all: The 501st Legion is one of the most recognized military units in modern history, more so than the “Band of Brothers” 506th PIR, 101st Airborne of WW2, more so than the elite US Navy SEAL Team 6. The 501st has quite literally developed a near “cult following.” With costumes worn by both children and…
