“Galactic Empire State of Mind” Music Video

StarWars.com Team | March 29, 2010

Sometimes our fans do something so amazing, that even Darth Vader has to be impressed. The Jedi Masters & Sith Lords over at CollegeHumor.com made this awesome fan movie to the soundtrack of Jay-Z & Alicia Keys “Empire State of Mind.”

There’s a rapping Darth Vader, a singing Princess Leia playing Max Rebo’s keyboard, not to mention some sweet dance moves from various Rebel pilots, Ewoks, stormtroopers and Chewbacca. Even Boba Fett, R2-D2 and C-3PO stop by.

Our lightsabers salute you, College Humor.

StarWars.com Team | March 4, 2010

Ever wonder what would happen if Princess Leia “woke up one morning feeling like P. Diddy” and had to find her way home while running from stormtroopers with the help of Han Solo, C-3PO and Chewie — all while singing Ke$ha’s dance hit “Tik Tok?”

Check out this impressive Star Wars themed Ke$ha “Tik Tok” music video spoof by the talented fans Eddie King and Tyler Marshall!

Bonus points to the crew for the hilarious low-rent C-3PO costume and for turning a mini-van into the Falcon! The dance party scene at the end makes us wish Comic-Con hosted a geek prom just for us.

Attack of the Star Wars Opening Crawl

Bonnie Burton | February 1, 2010

Ever wonder what happened to the opening crawl of Star Wars after we were done reading it as it floated across the screen? Apparently, it crashed to earth, taking out cars, signs, buildings and people…that is, until the U.S.S. Enterprise showed up.

My friends and I were bored one day during Christmas Break and decided to make a quick movie. We shot this in 30 minutes and only used 8 minutes of tape. I then proceeded to spend 3 and a half weeks putting in the visuals for the film. Special thanks to the Action Essentials 2 kit from Videocopilot.net, and Jason Lee for his Enterprise model.

Tauntaun Taxidermy!?

It turns out that Han Solo was not alone whiling away the hours as “art work” in the halls of Jabba’s Palace…

Spotted in a reference photo is none other than a mounted tauntaun head!

Can you say “tauntaun taxidermy” three times fast? We can!

If you’re hanging out on Twitter, and do a search using the hashtag #StarWarsXmas, you find out quickly how many fans are decorating during the holidays using Star Wars as a muse.

We’ll be posting throughout the month, some of our favorite Star Wars Christmas trees, festive cookies, nativity sets, outdoor lights, snowmen and more.

Here’s one of our faves:

Star Wars fan W.H Steels shows off his love for Jabba by making him a lucky stand-in for Joseph in this holiday nativity scene.

Years ago I bought a Nativity Set From a discount club! But it never came with a Joseph, so every year I have to go through my toys to find a stand in!
