Conan O Brien Star Wars

Here’s why you have to love Conan O’Brien‘s show. His writers read websites like this. How else do you explain that the talk show host knew a rumored Star Wars Episode VII title is “An Ancient Fear?” It’s not like that hit the mainstream media. Plus, what’s even cooler about Conan is he takes rumors like that and turns them into bits. Often time, they’re bits about Star Wars. He’s the guy who gave Harrison Ford $1000 to offer up a hint about the film, remember? And who can forget Triumph slaughtering the fans (myself included) waiting in line for Attack of the Clones?

Well, Conan is back at it again. He offered up a bunch of alternate titles to Star Wars Episode VII. Learn Conan O’Brien’s Star Wars titles below. Read More »

Until we know who’ll really get to direct the new Star Wars, there’s no harm in fantasizing about people who clearly won’t, right? On a recent episode of Conan, the late-night host imagined what a Star Wars VII directed by Wes Anderson or Todd Phillips might be like. After seeing them, I have to say, I’m almost sorry that neither of them are actually up for the job.

Meanwhile, you can add Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino to the “I’m good, thanks” list, and Kevin Smith shares his hopes for the new trilogy. Hit the jump to continue reading.
