Hallmark sends a heads-up that they’ve got a new Star Wars first available in stores and as a mini e-card — a Darth Vader Thanksgiving greeting!
The image above shows the cover of the card available in stores, which includes a sound chip that plays “The Imperial March” when opened (and also reveals an image of the Death Star with the quote “Who Wants Dark Meat?”).
The Vader Carver image can also be sent as a mini e-card, available here.
This Thanksgiving holiday, Star Wars fans on Twitter decided to celebrate by posting their favorite movie quotes with a festive food twist in the #StarWarsThanksgiving meme.

As Thanksgiving Day approaches and you shudder to think about what family debate topic will inevitably bubble up as you stuff yourself with mashed potatoes and pie, at least you can feel comforted to know your dad won’t blow up your home planet or chop off your hand.
io9.com takes a look at the worst dysfunctional families in science fiction, with of course the Skywalkers making the list.
The Skywalkers (Star Wars): The Skywalkers are more or less the gold standard for family dysfunction. Putting aside that twins Luke and Leia have the hots for one another, Papa Vader chopped off Luke’s hand, nearly killed him, and annihilated Leia’s entire home planet. Makes those family dinners pretty awkward.
Adding Han Solo’s DNA to the family tree doesn’t improve matters, as his Force-sensitive offspring Jaina and Jacen just end up battling to the death.
