Lightsaber Battle on My Life As Liz

StarWars.com Team | February 23, 2010

It’s not every day we get to see a cool fangirl have a lightsaber battle with her best friend while wearing an awesome Ackbar T-shirt.

Tune into the latest episode of MTV’s My Life As Liz, and you can see just that! Liz Lee gives us a glimpse of what life is like when you feel like a square peg at the Death Star known as high school, and a mean girl named Cori could give Darth Vader a run for his money.

We love that Liz shows off her geek cred in every episode whether it be in her fashion sense (we want to raid her T-shirt collection!) or her love for sci-fi and comics.

May the Force Be With You, Liz!

Craig Ferguson Tries Jedi Mind Trick!

StarWars.com Team | January 20, 2010

On The Late Late Show, host Craig Ferguson did his best to lure the audience into a Jedi Mind Trick as he answered viewers’ email questions on his show Jan. 19. Most impressive, Craig.

Craig says: “Nothing to see here. These are not the droids you’re looking for. You will take me to Jabba.”

Hiro, the only geek on Heroes who can time travel while quoting Star Wars and Star Trek at the same time, is back with a new sense of purpose. You don’t have to understand the plot to appreciate Masi Oka in his best fanboy moments.

Donald Faison Channels Han Solo on Conan

StarWars.com Team | December 2, 2009

Donald Faison, who plays Turk in the comedy Scrubs, loves talking about his Star Wars fandom on talk shows. Last time he was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, he showed off his stop-motion film Chronicles of Lando Calrissian.

This time, Fasion recently showed off his Star Wars cred on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, who interviewed him about his fandom.

What’s your favorite Star Wars movie?

Empire Strikes Back. I’ve seen it like 400 times now. It’s so in my system that throughout the day I break out into scenes on my own, out of nowhere. [RECITES FULL SCENE FROM EMPIRE]

So when someone is watching Star Wars with you, do you recite along with the whole movie?

Well…yes.

That’s really annoying.

Yes, it is annoying. My kids don’t like to watch Star Wars with me anymore.

AnnaLynne McCord <3 Han Solo

StarWars.com Team | December 2, 2009

Looks like Clone Wars voice actor Matt Lanter isn’t the only Star Wars fan on the TV show 90210. Fellow actress AnnaLynne McCord revealed her love for the original Star Wars movies when she appeared this week on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.

McCord admitted to being attracted to nerdy guys, and that she loves the original Star Wars films.

McCord said:

“I’m a huge Star Wars fan. I have to clarify though, I refuse to see any Star Wars except the original three: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi because those are the only Star Wars that exist. I’m sorry, the CGI stuff doesn’t do it for me. Honestly, I don’t like the ones without Han Solo.”

We Go Way Back (to 1971), Lando and Me

Pete Vilmur | November 19, 2009

han and lando

Good ol’ Han and Lando, bosom buddies of the Star Wars saga. They shared a past, a ship, and a scoundrel disposition. What you may not have known is that they also shared an episode of a little-known TV show from 1971 called “Dan August,” starring Burt Reynolds.

Snooping around imdb.com recently, we discovered actors Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams had actually been cast together for an episode of the crime teledrama (titled “The Manufactured Man”). We’ve not seen the episode, or a script for that matter, which is why we’re not able to relay the basic plot. Still, seeing the card-player/scoundrel and no-good swindler in a schmaltzy 1971 Burt Reynolds pre-Bandit vehicle — starring Gary Busey, Mickey Rooney, and David Soul, no less — sounds to us like TV worth watching.

Check out the imdb page for the episode here.
