    Captain Phasma Survived The Force Awakens, Will Be in Episode VIII

    After being hyped along with everyone else in the run up to The Force Awakens, Captain Phasma had a pretty rough go of things in her first outing. She got mad a few times, lowered the shields of Starkiller Base on command, and got chucked in a trash compactor. She didn’t even manage to be […]

    Kylo Ren Becomes An Undercover Boss on SNL, and It’s Hysterical

    Fresh off his debut as the new trilogy’s man in the mask, Kylo Ren is taking on a new sort of challenge that (mostly) doesn’t involve lightsabers. This past Saturday, Adam Driver hosted Saturday Night Live, and that meant at least one Star Wars skit was guaranteed. Like, I’ll bet it was written into the […]

    Life-size Stormtrooper Helmet Is Actually a Bluetooth Speaker

    Don’t think there can be any way to better herald the coming of the Empire than by using a massive, 1:1 scale Stormtrooper or Darth Vader helmet speaker.

    Was it all a clever advertising ruse?

    Carrie Fisher Responds To All The Haters Calling Her Fat

    I’m not really sure what drives people to go out of their way to comment on the appearance of someone else, but apparently people have been doing that in droves following the release of The Force Awakens. While all of the older members of the cast have gotten their fair share of comments about their […]

    Here’s How To Change The Spotify Progress Bar To A Lightsaber

    We might not be kidding. With The Force Awakens out and Star Wars clearly not going anywhere anytime soon now that it’s in the hands of Disney, all progress bars may soon be lightsabers.

    Viral Video Mashes Up Donald Trump and Darth Vader

    Today in low-hanging fruit, we have a new video making the rounds from mashup professionals (that’s a thing now, right?)

    Here’s Why Your Great-Grandchildren Will Still Be Lining Up For Star Wars
