Star Wars Will Be Taking Over This TV Show Tonight

sports nationIf anybody ever told you the worlds of science fiction and sports were mutually exclusive, that person must have had trouble talking with his or her head so far up his or her upside-down sarlacc pit. To celebrate…something…ESPN2’s fan-friendly series SportsNation will be dedicating an episode entirely to the Star Wars universe. Ready for some football, you are.

The costume-filled episode is actually pre-Halloween and will be airing tonight, Thursday, October 30, at 7:30 p.m. ET, just before the Major League Soccer playoffs. (Soccer is so Star Wars.) The half-hour episode won’t just feature a few new graphics and a bunch of cheap lightsaber toys. They’re going the whole nine parsecs with this one.

For one, the entire SportsNation set is being redesigned to look like the inside of the Millennium Falcon, which is awesome. According to THR, the majority of the most beloved Star Wars characters will make an appearance, including Han Solo, Yoda, Boba Fett, R2-D2, and C-3PO. Host Max Kellerman will be dressing up as Boba Fett, while Marcesslus Wiley will presumably be donning a pair of wrinkly ears for his Yoda costume.

Star Wars Rebels Cosplay Proves Boba Fett Is So Long, Long Time Ago

Boba Fett has long been one of the cosplay staples of any comics/sci-fi convention worth its salt. You’ll see at least two or three of the Mandalorian bounty hunter on any given day at a typical convention, mixed in with the Darth Vaders, some Jedi, and soooooooo many stormtroopers. And it’s been like that for a long while now. It’s time to shake things up and, dare I say it, add some color to the boring old standards. Enter Sabine from Star Wars Rebels…or at least a pretty wonderful cosplay version of her.

With all of the Star Wars parodies out there in the world, you wouldn’t think that Lucasfilm would balk at a beer paying respects to the most successful film franchise on the planet. Yet, they’re currently bringing a lawsuit against New York-based Empire Brewing for their product Strikes Bock, and Empire is being a “trooper” about the whole thing, as you can see in the video below.

As we trudge through the long wait until Star Wars: Episode VII hits theaters next year, lots of people have been looking back at the making and origins of the original trilogy we all fell in love with. And thanks to the Internet, we get to see all sorts of amazing things you previously wouldn’t have likely had access to without a tour of Skywalker Ranch or weeks spent digging through archives. Now let’s all take a moment to thank the gods of technology that you can now use this picture of director Joe Johnston’s amazing Darth Vader cosplay as your desktop wallpaper.

Star Wars Swaps Soundtracks With Star Trek And Avengers 2 Encounters Celine Dion

fb share tweet share

Music matters when it comes to movies. Like, a lot. That truth was brilliantly demonstrated by that video a while back where somebody stripped all the John Williams score out of the medal ceremony that wraps up the first Star Wars movie. With Williams’ music in place, a simple scene becomes truly epic. Without it, it’s soooooo very awkward. So, taking that thesis into account, what would happen if you took music created for one movie and dropped it into another? Obviously, the majority of the time this would probably result in a huge mess, but one enterprising fan decided to take a bit of Star Trek and merge it with a bit of Star Wars. You can see the results below.
