Romance Of The Jedi.
Yet another Brokeback-esque mashup, but at least this one doesn't use text nor that guitar song. Please, PLEASE, let this be the last one.

The Backstroke of the West!
Screen shots from a street-purchased dvd of Revenge of the Sith. Apparently translated into Chinese and back again for subtitles.
He big in nothing important in good elephant... Palpatine talking about Obi Wan.

The Dark Side Is The Best Sauce
I'm not sure if the cartoonist has their own personal LiveJournal, but the one for the comic is rather adorable and funny. It's just a handful of strips thus far, and they're terribly spoilery for Star Wars: Episode III. But still worth a quick look.

How Stuff works tackles a biggie....its all about lightsabers!

The Darth Side: Memoirs of a Monster.
Vader blogs from under the helmet. Best read out loud in a tinny James Earl Jones voice with mechanized breathing. First post is here
. (Historian's note: the blog starts shortly before Empire Strikes Back
, and his current entry is written during the storming of Hoth.)

The One Man Star Wars Trilogy
is a one-hour, high energy, nonstop blast through the first three Star Wars films. The catch is, there's only one cast member.
Charles Ross, the writer and solo performer, spent too much of his childhood in a galaxy far, far away- adulthood has been similar. Ross plays all the characters, recreates the effects, sings the music, flies the ships, and fights both sides of the battles.
I'm not so sure I want to see him playing Carrie Fisher, especially in E6

Grand Unification Theory:
Salavon's work has been mentioned on MeFi before, but I thought in honor of the trilogy finally being released on DVD this week, I'd post a link to this very awesome piece of art using every single frame from Episode Four.

At last, "THX-1138" with green-glowing, computer-generated robot factories!
George Lucas's first movie, the namesake of his sound system
, is coming to a theater near you, with a new 3D effects facelift, and a chilly, incomprehensible Flash site
. Will his "original vision"
of this 1971 dystopia be realized at last, or will his additions clash with the stark San Francisco subway tunnels
, like so much Yes music in a "Metropolis" re-release

"...Red 5 standing by..."
Kate Horn documents her love and creation of the X-Wing Toyota Tercel. Note the license plate people, she's out on the road, armed with blasters and quiet possibly, the Force.

Begun the microseries has...
in a very interesting format. Star Wars: Clone Wars
will be shown in two sets of ten installments, each three minutes long, which can be viewed on the Cartoon Network's website the day after they are aired. Director Genndy Tartakovsky
(of Samurai Jack
fame) seems to be doing a good job, based on my impressions of the first episode. Can this series help redeem the Star Wars franchise for the thousands (millions?) who feel cheated by the shoddy prequels?

DVDs are bad for business?
They are, according to the producer of "Attack of the Clones." Although it seems to me that every week I hear about a new box-office record being shattered, Rick McCallum says such things as: "I don't think there's a single movie that can survive on box office gross alone; it just doesn't exist anymore"
and my favorite: "Literally, our very lives are at stake now. George and I are just praying that we can finish 'Episode III' in time, before it's all over."
What do you think? Legitimate concern, or more ridiculous whining by millionaires lobbying to place restrictions on technogy?
