Star Wars Episode VIII Title

Production is wrapped on Star Wars: Episode VIII, and with post-production underway, John Williams will begin his work on the film’s score imminently. So far details have been pretty sparse on information about the sequel, which is exactly what we all expected. However, some fans have been hoping that we would get an official title for the movie sooner than later. But according to Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley, we may be waiting a while longer.

Star Wars vinyl mash-up albums - Prince

Presumably, there’s a whole galaxy that is chock full of eclectic music in the Star Wars universe. However, fans have only heard a very limited amount of it in the Star Wars movies. There’s Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes (aka the Cantina Band) from Star Wars: A New Hope, Sy Snootles and the Max Rebo Band from Return of the Jedi, and the unnamed Star Wars: The Force Awakens band in Maz Kanata’s cantina which is composed of Taybin Ralorsa, Infrablue Zedbeddy Coggins, Ubert “Sticks” Quaril, and Sudswater Dillifay Glon.

But what if the rest of the characters we know in the Star Wars universe all had albums of their own inspired by a variety of popular albums from Earth? One artist has recreated some familiar album covers from the likes of Eminem, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, The Band, Queen, Rage Against the Machine, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, but using characters from the Star Wars universe in place of the artists and their album artwork.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Spin-Off

Since the fall of 2014, there have been rumblings of Obi-Wan Kenobi getting his own standalone spin-off. In fact, those rumors even expanded to mention that a trilogy focusing on one of the last remaining Jedi was in the works at Lucasfilm with Ewan McGregor reprising his role from the prequel trilogy. We’ve yet to get any confirmation on this development, but now a fanmade trailer for Kenobi: A Star Wars Story makes the strong case for how interesting this kind of spin-off could be.

Star Wars cantina

One of the many reasons I can’t wait for Star Wars Land to open in Disneyland is that it will finally give me a chance to step inside an intergalactic cantina filled with all sorts of fun and strange aliens. I can’t imagine what Disney will do with that dining experience, especially with the elaborate animatronic alien creatures that are sure to inhabit the space. But I won’t have to wait until the end of the decade to get a taste of what this might be like as a Star Wars-inspired Cantina is coming to a secret location in Hollywood California this month. Learn more information about the Scum and Villainy Cantina, after the jump.
