Over the course of the next two years, Disney and Lucasfilm are going to introduce an entirely new generation of filmgoers to the Star Wars universe with Episode VII: The Force Awakens and the Rogue One spinoff. In order to celebrate the occasion, animator Glenn O Neill put together a 24-minute long supercut of every character from the first six movies.
The amazing Star Wars: Episode VII trailer that was released a few days ago has already spawned a bunch of clever responses, including a Lego version of the trailer and a brilliantly edited Matthew McConaughey reaction to name a few. Via Jalopnik, the most brilliant response yet came this week when someone on Craigslist decided to try selling the Star Destroyer battleship in the trailer that had crash landed on an unknown planet.
Believe it or not, the release of the second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was not the finale of Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim last week. In fact, that was just the highlight of the first day. In the succeeding days, there were more announcements, more interviews and more trailers, including an early teaser for Rogue One, the first film of the Star Wars Anthology Series. More →

We’re a long way from having to develop technology capable of fending off alien attacks like we see in sci-fi movies.

There are plenty of games worth getting excited about in the coming months, but none have quite as much impact as the reboot of Star Wars: Battlefront. At E3 last year, EA unveiled that the series would be returning soon, and promised to share more in the spring.

Given how unbelievably cool drones are, what with many being equipped with HD cameras and all, it’s hard to imagine how one might make a drone that much more compelling.
Well, Star Wars hobbyist and full-time Google engineer Adam Woodworth figured out how to do just that. Woodworth not too long ago placed a Star Wars Stormtrooper figurine atop of a heavily modified quadcopter drone, transforming it into an awesome 74-Z speeder bike, otherwise known as an Imperial Speeder Bike.
The result speaks for itself.
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens hasn’t even been released yet but that’s not stopping Disney from revealing some key details about future Star Wars films. Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger on Thursday revealed that not only is his company producing the newest Star Wars trilogy but it’s also working on the world’s first-ever standalone Star Wars film that’s called Rogue One.
