Revenge of the Jedi

We’ve seen teaser trailers for Revenge of the Jedi, the original title of the original Star Wars trilogy-maker before it was changed to Return of the Jedi, in the past.

That previously seen trailer shows plenty of footage for the movie in its minute and a half runtime, and also announces the movie’s May 25, 1983 release date. But to go along with the 33rd anniversary of the movie’s release yesterday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released a teaser for Revenge that could actually be the first trailer for the movie that was ever seen. The 30-second trailer only shows publicity stills and announces a Christmas release back when one was being planned for the UK, where the teaser was shown.

You can read the story behind this rare Revenge of the Jedi teaser trailer below.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

Trust me when I tell you I was stupid crazy over Star Wars as a kid. I spent every available cent I could on the toys back in the seventies. I collected, I traded, I begged for more. But as with all things in our childhood, the things that were so very important to us back then, can become less so as we grow up. Wait a second, who am I lying to here? I am still just as big of a fan and I would still play with the action figures on the playground if it wasn’t completely creepy for a middle-aged man to be doing so. I wrote an article last year about how profoundly Star Wars affected me as a child, you can read it here. However, what I’d like to talk to you about today is the new Star Wars movie as it affects my youngest.

Star Wars Death Star II Fire Pit

Redditor Bandia5309’s 84-year-old grandfather created a Death Star II fire pit over the Christmas holiday and it’s amazing!

The fire pit was based on the incomplete – yet fully armed and operational – second Death Star seen in 1983’s Return Of The Jedi, the final Star Wars film of the original trilogy.

Check out the photos of the fire pit here below.

Is The Original Unaltered ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy Coming To Blu-Ray? (Oh Please Please Please)

Original Star Wars Trilogy special edition cover

Now that Disney owns LucasFilm, it looks like we might finally get the original unaltered Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray!!!

ComicBook.com has the scoop that Disney is planning to bring the first three Stars Wars films — Star Wars (A New Hope), The Empire Strikes Back, and Return Of The Jedi — to Blu-ray in their original state – meaning, NOT the Special Editions from 1997 where creator George Lucas added lots of crap (yes, crap) and altered scenes making them worse. And NOT the Star Wars: Original Blu-ray Trilogy released in 2011 that took the Special Editions and further tampered with them.

Empire Strikes Back

As fans of the Star Wars franchise the world over prepare to celebrate this year’s May the 4th, I found myself giving serious consideration to writing something for Geeks of Doom in order to commemorate the occasion. After racking my brain for several constantly interrupted hours, I drew nothing but blanks.

It’s difficult for me to get excited about anything Star Wars-related this days; I’ve written news stories about the continuing developments behind the upcoming Episode VII even though I have little interest in them, but that’s part of the reason why I’m on the writing staff of this website. The stories have to be reported even though I may not care much about them because one or more of our readers certainly will. But the staggering drop in allure regarding the dauntless heroes and dastardly villains who inhabit the expansive universe that sprang forth from George Lucas‘ euphoric imagination more than four decades ago in my view wasn’t something that happened overnight. It took many unpleasant, heartbreaking years.

However, I came not to talk about how much Star Wars has disappointed me over time. May 4th is meant to be a day of remembrance and celebration. With that in mind I will instead document in brief to the best of my abilities the role Lucas’ creation has played in inspiring me to embrace my own evolving sense of wonder and take control of my intellectual maturation.

‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Setting Details Revealed; Begins Filming In May

Star Wars Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO

Some new Star Wars: Episode VII information has been announced, including some character details and when the movie will be set, as well as when the movie officially begins shooting.

In the announcement it has been revealed that Episode VII takes place around 30 years after the end of Return of the Jedi, and that the characters will include a trio of young new leads and some familiar faces. This is all in line with what’s been expected; being set 30 years after the events of a movie that came out just over 30 years ago allows for the expected appearances of characters like Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) without any aging issues.

In addition to the new information, it’s also been revealed that the movie will officially begin filming just a couple of months from now in May. The first day of filming for every Star Wars movie has been well-documented, and you can read about all six of those first days below.

Return of the Jedi Yoda deleted scene

In the second Star Wars film, The Empire Strikes Back, Luke Skywalker leaves his Jedi Master Yoda on Dagobah to try and save his friends. The problem is, he hadn’t yet completed his training.

In the next film, Return Of The Jedi (the final of the original trilogy), Luke, who’s wiser and more practiced, returns to Dagobah to finally finish his Jedi training and to get some answers from his Master about his paternity, but finds Yoda old and dying.

A delete scene from Return Of The Jedi, which had been included in a laserdic version decades ago, is now online which reveals that Luke’s mentor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, actually did want to tell him the truth about his family.

Check out the scene here below!

Watch Now: The Just Say ‘NO’ Edition of ‘Star Wars’

Star Wars NO

Here’s a good one for a laugh. There’s been a whole bunch of awesome Star Wars humor videos on the web, most of them using excerpts from the films and re-edited by fans. This one is of “NO” exception, as it features every single time the word “no” is mentioned in all six movies. It’s worth a look, so check it out at the bottom of the post.

Although the obvious classic (and/or groan-worthy) NO’s are featured in the video, you’ll be surprised how much the word is actually used in the movies. It may probably fuel the George Lucas Haters’ vocal detestation of his writing, but haters gonna hate!

The Star Wars NO video was edited by Chris Haynes, and uploaded to YouTube by HughesnBeuks.

Anyway, take a look, and leave your thoughts in a comment below.
