Darth Vader Conducts Christmas Choir Flash Mob

StarWars.com Team | December 16, 2011

College students can feel extra stressful during final exams week, and sometimes it takes a Sith Lord to put it all in perspective. This week at Algonquin College in Ontario, the Ottawa Regional Youth Choir performed a “Carol of the Bells” flash mob conducted none other than by Darth Vader himself to put students in the festive spirit.

Inspired by the Christmas Food Court Flash Mob Hallelujah Chorus, the Television Broadcasting students at Algonquin College wanted to showcase the new Algonquin Centre for Construction Excellence by lightening the mood with the help of the Ottawa Regional Youth Choir and Darth Vader. Please note: Lord Vader is not enrolled or on faculty at Algonquin.

Well played Darth Vader, well played.

Darth Vader/The Great Dictator Speech Tribute

StarWars.com Team | December 7, 2011

Every once in awhile, a dedicated fan creates a video tribute to Star Wars that makes one pause and consider the full story of Darth Vader on a deeper level. The Star Wars Saga has always been about the story of Anakin Skywalker at its core. The films and The Clone Wars animated series show exactly that — the tale of a hero who lost his way and eventually found redemption.

This fan-made video tribute shows Anakin Skywalker’s final moments as he recalls the days of The Clone Wars in the arms of his son, Luke Skywalker. The video is narrated with Charlie Chaplin’s famous speech from The Great Dictator alongside clips from The Clone Wars.

This rousing speech, which was made famous from a film released during the early ’40s that bravely condemned Adolf Hitler, fascism, and the Nazis, works all too well juxtaposed against footage of the Emperor and the destruction he caused through the manipulation of the people during The Clone Wars.

Star Wars Invades Milan Fashion Week

Bonnie Burton | June 20, 2011

Fashion designer Thom Browne’s spring and summer 2012 collaboration with Moncler Gamme Bleu took inspiration from Star Wars as it hit the runway at Milan Fashion Week.

Adam Tschorn, reporting from Milan:

When the lights came down and the strains of John Williams’Star Wars soundtrack started to fill the room, I knew my fear had been misplaced; Browne had wrapped in elements of the George Lucas mythology -– the faceless drones behind the fencing masks became the stormtroopers, there were fair-haired Lukes (although no Leias) and even a few dark-garbed Darth Vader types — one with a camera taped to his chest to simulate the Darth Vader gadgetry, and a second one, with a long, flowing, black cape in athletic mesh that kept getting stuck in the metal floor used for fencing matches.

That the juxtaposition of fencing and Star Wars provided so much entertainment was a good thing because this collection seemed to serve up less in the way of wearable wardrobe pieces than any Moncler Gamme Bleu to date. (Then again, maybe I was just preoccupied with trying to figure out which guy was supposed to be Grand Moff Tarkin.)

Bonnie Burton | March 2, 2011

Indie band Scattered Trees make a music video for “Love and Leave,” worthy of Emo stormtroopers everywhere. Directed by J.M. Harper, the video not only features stormtroopers but Boba Fett on drums and a very somber Amidala with a few lightsaber tricks up her sleeve.
