Drunken Ewoks Attack The Today Show!

fb share tweet share

ewokI’ve long been an Ewok defender. Sure they look like lame ass teddy bears, but they’re actually vicious, cannibal teddy bears with a penchant for violence and a sick sense of humor. They murder storm troopers and then play the drums on their severed heads! They’re subversive, fuzzy little bastards and I’ve never understood what’s not to love.

Case in point, they invaded the Today Show this morning as part of the NBC morning staple’s Halloween episode. They were apparently supposed to wander around and look cute during a cooking segment, but instead they started drinking martinis, moonwalking, airhumping, and engaging in food fights. You have to see it to believe it. Check out the entire, must see video after the jump:

Live Action Star Wars TV Series Will Be Aimed At Adults

fb share tweet share

slaveleiaThe live action Star Wars TV series that’s been rumored for several years now is finally happening. Fanboy.com confirms is finally set to start shooting in Australia soon, using local Australian talent.

Better still, this won’t be yet another horrible Star Wars product geared towards 8-year-old kids. Instead, multiple sources have confirmed that for the first time in a long time, this will be a Star Wars aimed at adults. Their hiring writers with experience penning mature relationship dramas and the show is expected to focus on character connections and emotional issues. Heavier stuff than we’ve seen from Star Wars in a long, long, time. If we’re lucky, this could be the serious Star Wars we’ve all been craving, a show without a Jar Jar.

decodedClone Wars has done so well on Cartoon Network, that while they wait for the new season they’re bringing an old season back… but with a bonus. Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Decoded is a full slate of 22 enhanced episodes from season one of the CG-animated series.

Here’s how they explain the enhancements:

Using text windows to provide in-the-moment insights into all aspects of the sweeping galactic conflict—from trivia to background on characters and storylines—Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Decoded enhances each episode with exclusive content created by the Lucasfilm Animation talent responsible for the show itself.

So basically it’s Star Wars Pop-Up Video. Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Decoded premieres Friday, May 1, at 9 p.m. ET/PT only on Cartoon Network. Here’s a clip from the first episode:

Like any sci-fi fan with any sense… I’ll be glued to the series finale of Battlestar Galactica instead. Luckily Clone Wars reruns frequently. Maybe it’s worth catching later in the week.

Live Action Star Wars TV Series Casting

fb share tweet share

starwarsbatThough it’s getting pretty good ratings on Cartoon Network, Clone Wars left a lot of Star Wars fans scarred. So scarred in fact that we’d almost forgotten there’s another, potentially better Star Wars television project in Lucas’s fan-pipe.

The live action Star Wars television series is still happening, and MTV says casting is already underway. Actress Rose Byrne let the info slip while junketing for her new movie Knowing. Says Byrne, “A lot of my friends have been auditioning for it.”

Last we heard the show will focus on minor characters in the Star Wars universe. Don’t expect to see Luke Skywalker or Han Solo for instance. It happens in the time period between Episode III and Episode IV, when the Empire is at its strongest and the Jedi are extinct. Because of that, don’t expect to see any Jedi, or for that matter lightsabers on screen either.

Anybody else having a Battle for Endor flashback?
