The Force was strong with the American Music Awards this year. Surprise guest Harrison Ford introduced a cappella group Pentatonix, who served up a rousing rendition of John Williams‘ iconic Star Wars themes. Watch their performance above.
It was confirmed months ago that Simon Pegg would be making an appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but as of now we still don’t know whom he’s playing. Naturally, that just means rumors abound about his role. The latest is that he’s playing Unkar Plutt, a Jakku junk dealer. Making Star Wars has more details.
Following Star Wars: The Force Awakens banners for Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley), and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), old-timers Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Han (Harrison Ford) are here to show ’em how it’s done. Han is armed with his trusty blaster, and Leia with… streaks of green light? Sure.
Gwendoline Christie‘s Captain Phasma gets the spotlight in the latest new image from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and boy does she look cool doing it. Some are calling her the new Boba Fett; I, for one, hope she gets more to do than he did in those original films.
You could choose between decorating your lawn in honor of The Force Awakens, or decorating it to mark the Christmas holiday. Or you could do what one enterprising Star Wars fan did and celebrate both in one fell swoop, via a massive, and massively impressive, TIE fighter Christmas light display.
We all know the movie theater concessions are a massive rip-off. But depending on how much you like Star Wars and/or not spilling stuff, you may want to hit up the stand anyway to grab some of these collectible drink toppers. Click over to the Regal website (via Making Star Wars) to see if your local theater is participating.
