It wouldn’t be San Diego Comic-Con without Slave Leias. Of course, this year at the annual Slave Leia photo op, the usual mayhem occurred. Who needs red carpet celebrities when you can see all the Slave Leias at the convention all in one spot?

The lovely ladies were out in full Force this year, complete with a supermodel addition of America’s Next Top Model winner and reality TV star Adrianne Curry.

StarWars.com chats with Adrianne about her Comic-Con adventures dressed as Slave Leia.

What was it like being part of the official Slave Leia group photo at this year’s Comic-Con?

I had a lot of fun. The ladies were all beautiful and sweet. I had a personal armed Mando escort to meet the ladies. It was surreal to be surrounded by 4 or 5 of them, pounding our way through the crowd to the Gentle Giant booth. No one stopped me for the first time that day. They kinda just looked on in awe. My friend Eliot led the pack and had me by my chain. Then all the Leias were escorted by the Mandos to our shoot. I think it’s funny how the most overplayed costume for girls at a con hasn’t even begun to lose its luster. Sadly, I had to bow out early, but for good reason. My panel was about to start. Again, I had an armored guard to my panel. Now I know if I ever want to be left alone, rely on a squadron of Mandos!

What’s it like wearing the costume around the convention? Is it uncomfortable? Drafty?

Well, I didn’t get to shop, or do much of anything other than take pictures with people. Of all my costumes, I got recognized the most in Slave Leia. I have worked non stop in the gym to ensure I could hold my head up high while walking in Carrie Fisher’s boots. The metal bikini is not comfortable. Drafty doesn’t even begin to describe it. I ended up wearing it to the Dusk Till Con party and into the wee hours of the night. I think I must have posed for over 3,000 photos all day!

Swing Jedi Master! Swing!

Yoda’s wisdom isn’t just for Jedi. The San Diego Padres seem to have adopted a new green mascot, which can’t hurt gaming odds.

Recently, Yoda was spotted with the Padres as they played against the Florida Marlins. Of course, Yoda does have another connection to the Padres. Actress Ashley Eckstein, who voices Jedi Ahsoka Tano in The Clone Wars animated series and created a new fashion line for female Star Wars fans called Her Universe, is married to Padres’ infielder David Eckstein.

Seth Green vs. Warren the Ape with Lightsabers!

StarWars.com Team | July 7, 2010

There are good puppets, and there are troubled puppets. Warren the Ape is clearly not a Jedi Master, but he might be too adsorbed in self-help therapy to be a successful Sith Lord.

In his new MTV show Warren the Ape, Warren gives fans a look at his life after his success in the show Greg the Bunny.

Having had a brief taste of success on the former sitcom Greg the Bunny, Warren’s life has been in a downward spiral ever since the show got canceled. Over the past few years, Warren has paid more attention to drugs, booze and women than his career, which as of late has mostly consisted of a series of seedy exploitation films and low-rent theater productions.

Inception Inspired by Star Wars

Director Christopher Nolan recently revealed that Star Wars had a deep impact on him as a filmmaker, making films like his new mind-twisting tale Inception possible.

Nolan says about Star Wars:

“That was an entire world that didn’t exist anywhere else before. It only existed in that movie, and then your brain lived in it for a couple of hours, and it stuck with you.”

“Ever since I saw that film, whether I knew it or not, my ambition has been to give the audience that kind of experience. To create a world that they hadn’t expected before and hadn’t seen before and let them lose themselves in it. There’s a huge advantage of jumping into something original that can be anything.”

StarWars.com Team | June 17, 2010

Looks like fans everywhere including our favorite geektastic newlyweds — actors Seth Green and Clare Grant — are adding a bit of the Empire to their breakfasts with the new Star Wars pancake molds from Williams-Sonoma.

After tying the knot a little more than a month ago, Seth Green and Clare Grant aren’t working on perfecting their marriage. They have bigger, tastier things to worry about – like making perfect pancakes.

“What we’ve been doing a lot of is trying to perfect – we got all of those Star Wars pancake molds from Williams-Sonoma for our wedding – so we’ve been perfecting the art of pancakes,” Grant told People at a benefit for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation on Sunday. “It’s not as easy as it sounds.”
