Director Zack Snyder Tweets Yoda Unicorn Cake

Bonnie Burton | July 29, 2010

Filmmaker Zack Snyder recently started tweeting, which is exciting if you can’t wait to learn more about his upcoming action-fantasy film Sucker Punch.

We’ve already seen Snyder show off his Star Wars pride in a Watchmen Web doc, so it was only a matter of time before he tweeted about something Star Wars-related.

Sure enough, his fifth tweet was about his daughter’s birthday cake from Violet’s Cakes which so happened to be Yoda riding a unicorn. Bravo, Zack Snyder. Bravo.

Nathan Fillion Tweets His New AT-AT

StarWars.com Team | July 9, 2010


As a special thanks to actor Nathan Fillion for being so vocal about his awesome lightsaber duel with his neighbor and his Jedi mind trick skills on his hit show Castle, not to mention his Force-tastic Christmas tree, we asked Hasbro to send him a new addition to his home — the new, gigantic AT-AT.

According to his tweets, it looks like he got it!

Remember to give him lots of love and take him on plenty of walks, Nathan!

Yoda & Hal Sparks = BFF!

Bonnie Burton | December 22, 2009

Comedian and actor Hal Sparks is already known to be a Star Wars fan, so it’s no surprise that Hal would tweet a photo of him having a tender moment with Yoda.

“I love the scene where Yoda eats his food stick and for a moment you are wondering what exactly he’s eating,” Sparks says in our interview with him on Starwars.com. “Because of that I thought in the future all we’d eat would be candy bars. And so I’m a firm believer that while Star Trek is probably responsible for cell phones, Star Wars is most certainly responsible for Power Bars.”

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!

Artist and illustrator Adam Koford (aka Apelad) is known for his comic The Laugh-Out-Loud Cats as well as his adorkable Greedo he created for the Empire Muggs Back charity art project.

So we were thrilled to see his Twitter avatar art of his favorite sci-fi characters including Boba Fett, Yoda and Chewbacca, among others. Up close they’re fun Star Wars portraits, but in smaller form they look like the little Twitter bird avatar.

California Hall of Fame Inducts George Lucas

StarWars.com Team | December 2, 2009



Filmmaker George Lucas, gay-rights advocate Harvey Milk, comedian Carol Burnett, football legend John Madden, best-selling romance author Danielle Steel and other icons were among 13 individuals inducted into the California Hall of Fame on Tuesday.

Tweeting live from the event, California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger snapped candid photos of the inductees — including the one above of him shaking hands with George Lucas.

All of the inductees were chosen for being “remarkable individuals who embody the innovative spirit of the Golden State and who have changed the world by pursuing their dreams.”

The California Museum, located in downtown Sacramento, will display 13 exhibits showcasing the accomplishments of the inductees through October. George Lucas’ exhibit includes models of R2-D2 and C-3PO, as well as Indiana Jones’ jacket, whip and hat from the 1989 film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
