A huge cache of previously-unknown photos of Lucasfilm props has been released to the public. Not only are these interesting historical documents, but they are an invaluable resource for prop and replica builders. You can see the whole set of pics here.
Thanks to Pickle Munkey for the link (and sorry it took so long to post)
This rumor has been blazing all around the internet the last couple of days, there’s no actual basis behind it, but anyone with half a brain cell could put together that since Disney owns Star Wars, Disney owns Pixar, Disney wants to make as much money as possible off Star Wars… at some point, they’re bound to order up a Pixar made Star Wars movie. Ta da. It’s good to dream.
With Disney now in charge of the Star Wars universe, they’ve appointed a group that will create one large official, canonical Star Wars that will be consistent through movies, games, books and TV shows. No more Expanded Universe, no more old universe and game universe, just one thing, pulling together all the best bits into a single story. Sort of just like how the Bible was written.
