All right, so the sign shown above (via Collider) is just a joke, but the off-the-charts anticipation for Episode VII is very, very real. After the jump:

  • Jon Favreau has Kevin Smith‘s vote for the Star Wars VII directing job
  • Ed Burns is ambivalent on the admittedly slim possibility of getting an offer
  • Peter Serafinowicz and Chris Hemsworth would like to be in Star Wars
  • Watch Lawrence Kasdan talking about Return of the Jedi, way back when
  • Fox announces dates for the 3D re-releases of Episode II and Episode III

Enough of the Star Wars hate. Let’s try and forget about all of this, this and this for now. Remember back to when the original Star Wars trilogy was pure. A time when there was no Internet and the mystery of the coming movies was solved only by going to the theater on opening day. That’s how many fans experienced not only Star Wars but The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi as well. Lack of detailed information about the films prior to opening gave them an intangible, surprising quality that’s all but extinct today.

The availability of information has changed over the past thirty years, but our appetite for it is not new. In the wake of the success of Star Wars, people were clamoring for information on Empire and Jedi; they just didn’t have any easy way to get it.

After the jump is a set of spy photos taken by fans who went above and beyond in search of answers. They traveled into the desert to watch the filming of a movie called Blue Harvest. That, of course, was the code name for Return of the Jedi. These people stumbled upon the set for Jabba’s Barge on Tatooine, filled as it was with new characters, vehicles and more. After the jump, check out their photos as well as a just-revealed deleted scene from the Empire Strikes Back. Read More »

There is more possible ‘Star Wars alteration’ controversy today. The word going around on TheForce.net and other message boards is that review copies of the Star Wars blu-ray set have trickled out, and two of the supposed changes to the original trilogy are being highlighted. While the digital Yoda in The Phantom Menace is a much broader change, these two alterations — if true — will be far more irritating.

The two big tweaks reported are changes to audio, one in the original Star Wars and the other in Return of the Jedi. The latter is the big one, as two instances of Darth Vader saying and screaming ‘Nooo!’ have reportedly been added to the scene where (spoiler!) Vader throws the Emperor to his doom. The idea would seemingly be to establish some thin and wholly silly symmetry between the versions of Vader at the end of each Star Wars trilogy. Check out the two audio changes below. Prepare to cringe. Again: the veracity of these clips remains in doubt. There is a troll at work here; we just don’t know yet if it is George Lucas, or some anonymous prankster. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Mondo’s Star Wars poster series has come to an end with a finale fitting of George Lucas’s epic trilogy.

UGO exclusively revealed his posters for Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, plus variants of all three (including a Revenge of the Jedi!), which will be on sale New Year’s Eve at a random time. Check out the posters and more after the jump. Read More »

A snowman version of Jabba the Hutt was spotted last week in Spokane, WA by FETTS.

Earlier today, we posted an Olly Moss poster that you can’t buy. Little did we know that mere hours later, he’d reveal three that you can at least attempt to buy. And they are exquisite.

The minimalist man behind some gorgeous Lost and Rolling Roadshow posters is the next artist in the Mondo Star Wars series and he’s not only created one, he’s created three 24 x 36 inch beauties for Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Each print has a pretty big edition size, 400 each, and cost $50 each. They’ll go on sale on Mondo’s site Monday December 20 at a random time. Follow @MondoNews on Twitter for the announcement. After the jump, look at the three images in all their glory. Read More »
