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

fb share tweet share

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

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.

Star Wars: Episode VII Trailer Could Drop Sooner Than You Think, Get The Details Here

fb share tweet share

Star WarsWe won’t actually see Star Wars: Episode VII until December 18, 2015—we’ll just have to satisfy ourselves by gorging on Star Wars Rebels in the interim—but we might get our first look at the film by the end of the year. That is, aside from leaked concept art and set photos taken by aerial drones (we really do live in a world where movie sets are under siege by spy drones). Reports say that the first trailer for Episode VII may appear before the year is out and that it will feature new original music by none other than John Williams.

This news comes from John Williams Fan Network, which says that not only does the legendary Star Wars composer actually have the teaser trailer in his possession—probably with a heavily armed, Disney-funded private security force surrounding him at all times, even when he’s in the can—but he’s going to record the new music for it very soon. That’s good news, because as we all know, the best part of the prequels was Williams’ score.

Star Wars’ History On Display In Gallery Of Behind-The-Scenes ILM Photos

DSGlassesOne of the things we’re most excited about when it comes to Star Wars: Episode VII is all the visual confirmations of director J.J. Abrams’ commitment to making extensive use of practical effects, costumes, and models. We love the amazing things CGI can accomplish as much as the next guy, but we’ve reached a stage where it all starts to look the same, and there’s just something nostalgic and viscerally thrilling about knowing that they actually built the Millennium Falcon, as opposed to just sticking the Episode VII cast in an empty warehouse where everything is painted green. The legacy Episode VII hopes to honor is on beautiful display in a massive gallery of behind-the-scenes photographs focusing on ILM’s incredible Star Wars work from 1977 – 1983.
