Watch Lightsaber Accessories Get Out Of Hand In This Animated Star Wars Parody

fb share tweet share

Since the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer arrived just after Thanksgiving, there has been almost nonstop back and forth chatter about broadsword-looking lightsaber wielded by the hooded character we now know as Kylo Ren. One of the concerns is that those new add-ons, while they may look totally badass, might not be the most practical enhancement. If these are indeed new additions, it also makes you wonder what other things folks have added to lightsabers over the years, and this new animated video imagines this idea played out to the ridiculous extreme.

There was one rumor floating around about this weapon a while back, and the more I think about it, the more it starts to make sense. We heard that this particular weapon isn’t new but is in fact very old, one of those Sith relics that one character, we don’t know who exactly, may collect. If that turns out to be the case, this is likely a design that was abandoned, probably for many of the reasons people have thrown out there. It could also explain why the blade is all wonky and ragged, perhaps this is simply very old and doesn’t work quite as well as it once did.

This Homemade Star Wars Landspeeder Pet Bed Is Totally The Cat’s Pajamas

fb share tweet share

star warsWhen I was a kid, I had a bunk bed and then a normal bed, and then my parents tossed their waterbed before I could step in and lay claim. (Like the 1970s pimp that I am?) Any trip to the furniture store always takes me back to childhood, seeing racecar beds and spaceship beds and the like. But in order to get the coolest bed of all, I apparently should have grown up as a cat instead of a human. May I jealously present the world’s first (I presume) homemade Star Wars Landspeeder cat bed.

Crafted by the amazingly creative minds at Roxy’s Dream, these guys make a ton of pet-related furniture and accessories, and this is easily the greatest bed they’ve made yet. Completely one of a kind, the Cat Speeder is going for around $600, to make up for all the work that went into it. As you can imagine, Roxy’s Dream isn’t a mass-production factory or anything.

star warsIf you’re reading this, I’ll just go ahead and assume you’re one of the millions of people around the world whose anticipation for Star Wars: The Force Awakens knows no bounds. Disney is looking to capitalize on rampant fandom with a new series of web shorts that they’ll put out over the next year to make damned sure every organism on the planet is aware of this massive tentpole.

Sadly, this won’t be a spinoff series or anything along the lines of Star Wars Rebels. These shorts will instead focus on the Star Wars universe as a whole, in a background information kind of way. While there are not a lot of details are out there, Bloomberg reports at least two areas of subject matter that will be tackled are fashion and games. You want to know how to make a robe that looks like one a Jedi would wear? How about learning to cut wood with lightsabers? Maybe this series will show you, but probably not.

AvengersFalconThere’s no doubt that 2015 is going to be an epic year for movies. You’ve got Marvel continuing its unprecedented winning streak with a second Avengers movie (not to mention the troubled but still intriguing Ant-Man). You’ve got a new Jurassic Park movie starring the walking slice of awesome known as Chris Pratt. You’ve got the final installment of the ridiculously successful Hunger Games saga. Oh, and there’s that under-the-radar flick known as Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Which will reign supreme in 2015? We’ll have to wait and see, but thanks to a new poll, we do have some insight into which films moviegoers are most excited about.

Fandango has released the results of its annual survey of the most anticipated films of the upcoming year. And while the Internet will be arguing who would win in a fight between the Avengers and Darth Vader until the inevitable heat death of the universe, we at least know who came out on top in this particular instance: Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the most anticipated movie of 2015, at least according to the Fandango poll.

star wars the force awakensWith just a little less than a year to go before the massive release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, anticipation couldn’t be higher, and neither could the number of fan theories currently making up roughly 115% of Internet chatter. But just in case you thought all the stuff you were reading about was completely legit and based on good info, actor Oscar Isaac is here to wash all that away.

Speaking with Yahoo! Movies, Isaac shared about as much as he possibly could without having J.J. Abrams send out a pack of wild dogs to hunt him down. When asked about the leaks, here’s what Isaacs had to say:

The Force Awakens Trailer Collides With Guardians, Goes Retro, And Gets Bay-ified

fb share tweet share

Guardians of the Galaxy proved all the naysayers wrong and became one of the highest grossing films of the year, currently sitting at $772 million worldwide. It also helped make big-screen space operas cool again, with that momentum set to continue with the upcoming Star Wars films (and, hopefully, the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending won’t suck). In a lot of ways, Guardians was a better Star Wars movie than any of the prequels, but what would Star-Lord and company look like if slathered with some more direct Star Wars trappings? Check out YouTuber Bobby Burns’ mashup of Guardians and Star Wars to see for yourself.
