Star Wars: The Force Awakens stars John Boyega and Daisy Ridley‘s complete inability to be chill about any of this is so totally endearing. Today, they’re (rightfully) freaking out about hanging out with composer John Williams.

There’s no end to the limited-edition Star Wars collectibles on sale, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a cuddlier one than this basket of Ewoks. This plush set is one of a limited edition set of 1,000, and marks the merchandising debut of Romba. Pick it up at DisneyStore.com.

Once upon a time, Red Fly Studio was developing a Darth Maul-centered video game called Battle of the Sith Lords. It was cancelled in 2011 ahead of Lucasfilm’s sale to Disney, but Red Fly’s Dan Borth revealed during a Reddit AMA they’re trying to resurrect the project.

Which is nice and all, but with these movie dates getting set more and more in the distant future, it’s all starting to make me feel bad about my mortality.
