Star Wars The Force Awakens han solo leia

As everyone already knows, Harrison Ford suffered an injury on the set of The Force Awakens when the hydraulic door of the Millennium Falcon malfunctioned and broke his leg. England’s Health and Safety Executive has investigated the incident and has concluded that Disney subsidiary Foodles Production is responsible for the accident and violated several workplace safety laws. Here’s part of their statement:

By law, employers must take reasonable steps to protect workers — this is as true on a film set as a factory floor. We have investigated thoroughly and believe that we have sufficient evidence to bring the case to court.

This will likely result in a fine that will be hefty for most people, but spare change to Disney. In the end, this will be more embarrassing than anything else.

We know that a new LEGO Star Wars series is coming to Disney XD, but you’ll soon be able to whet your appetite with a new miniseries titled LEGO Star Wars: The Resistance Rises. You can watch a preview of the first episode, which is titled “Poe to the Rescue” and follows Poe Dameron as he rescues Admiral Ackbar from Captain Phasma, above.

Mashable has posted a very funny video mocking crazy fan theories, with a slightly deranged Star Wars nerd desperately searching for secrets by creating anagrams out of random phrases and names taken from The Force Awakens. For example, the letters in The Force Awakens can be re-arranged to spell “fake cheaters won,” which has to mean something, right? Right?!

And while we’re still wearing our tinfoil hats, let’s close out with this little tidbit. A Reddit user claims that The Force Awakens aligns with Pink Floyd’s classic album The Dark Side of the Moon. This concept is obviously a riff on how the album famously (and mysteriously) lines up with The Wizard of Oz, with many of the lyrics commenting on the film in some very strange ways. Anyway, this user (obviously working from a pirated copy of the film) points out that the album’s lyrics occasionally coincide with the action on the screen. For example:

i’m not afraid of dying. anytime will do.

This is said on the album right after poe wakes up on the torture chamber and stares at kylo (Torry starts her screams at the same time poe screams in the movie)

Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town, waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

All the lyrics of “Time” happens while the movie shows rey’s daily struggles. The whole scene just fits with the song

And after all, we’re only ordinary men

This is sung at the same time that rey tells finn that she had never seen anyone from the resistance, and he says “This is what we look like. Some of us, others look different”

to hear the softly spoken magic spells

Cut to kylo talking to vader’s helmet, trasitioning into the sad piano of The Great Gig in the Sky

The whole thing seems a little far-fetched, especially since The Dark Side of the Moon‘s lyrics are often vague enough to feel like they can be commenting on anything. Still, if you have an evening to kill once you have the Blu-ray in your possession, there are worse experiments you can conduct.
