Oh, Quirk Books, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. A seventh film necessitates a seventh adaptation in the vein of all things theatrical. I present to you, dearest reader, William Shakespeare’s The Force Doth Awaken: Star Wars Part the Seventh! Follow the tale of Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron whilst they struggle against the darkest of dark, the First Order. The tale is old to many, but the cycle begins anew as we begin a new trilogy of storytelling that explores the loss of heroes and the search for knowledge. Comedy and tragedy both play their parts in this play adapted by Ian Doescher, tugging upon both our hearts and emotions alike.

Video: Tommy Wiseau Meets Mark Hamill In ‘The Room’ / ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Mashup

The Room's Tommy Wiseau Meets Mark Hamill In The Force Awakens

We’re nearing a year and a half now since Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released. The first spinoff movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has since come and gone, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi is on the way later this year.

But that doesn’t mean the internet is going to stop coming up with little gems to entertain us. A meme has made its way around the ‘net in which the man, the myth, the legend himself, Tommy Wiseau, drops his “Oh, hai Mark” line from his infamous anti-classic The Room on Mark Hamill in The Force Awakens.

Now someone has taken that meme a step further, by taking the clip of Wiseau out of The Room and superimposing him into the final scene of The Force Awakens. The result is, of course, perfect. You can check out the video below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Kylo Ren

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is well behind us, but somehow we are still uncovering more secrets about the film. With Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them just a week away from release, Eddie Redmayne making the press rounds talking about his experience on the first of five Harry Potter spinoffs. But the actor reveals that he almost did not play Newt Scamander.

At first, the actor spoke about how he auditioned to play a baddie in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Specifically, General Hux, a role that eventually went to Domnhall Gleeson. Now it appears that story has changed, as he believes he actually auditioned to play Kylo Ren. Check out the full story below.

Disney CEO Not Expecting ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ To Be As Successful As ‘The Force Awakens’

Felicity Jones in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The Star Wars universe will be venturing into a new galaxy this year as they will be releasing their first spinoff film. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will center on a group of Rebel fighters attempting to steal the plans to the Death Star. A true prequel that takes place before A New Hope. But the exciting part of the film is that it will focus on those who don’t have Jedi powers and have a ground war feel to it. But troubles behind-the-scenes have put the film in a very awkward position. Partially because Star Wars: The Force Awakens was such a massive hit, there are expectations that Disney should be able to follow up that same success for every new film released. And with the summer-long reshoots that took place and the addition of new creative forces, it seems like Rogue One could fall short of the expectations that The Force Awakens established last year.

And that’s what Disney CEO Bob Iger is not afraid to admit, but he is also remains optimistic that it could do very well based on the reactions to the marketing campaign. Check out what he had to say below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Props

A video has been released showing the making of some ultra cool Star Wars: The Force Awakens Ultimate Studio Edition props made by a company that actually worked on the props for the movie itself. These collectibles include replicas of Darth Vader’s damaged helmet, Rey’s staff, and Finn’s blood-marked stormtrooper helmet.

If you’re a Star Wars fanatic who loves to purchase collectibles and prop replicas, you’re going to want to get your hands on these bad boys. They’re about as good as you can get apart from actually getting your hands on official props. But unfortunately, not many fans will easily be able to afford them.

You can find more information, including where to buy them, and see the video of some of them being made below.

Star Wars Day: And Then There Were Seven

Star Wars The Force Awakens Title Card

I have had a tough time this year coming up with a topic for this most important date, May The 4th, aka Star Wars Day. So I’m going to just speak from the heart about the tragedy that befell my family thanks to my own selfishness and thoughtlessness. Beware, for this could happen to you, too!

A year ago, I wrote a piece about how my daughter had recently discovered and become enamored with Star Wars, or at least the six films we had at that time. I fixated, yes I chose that word correctly, on her love of the franchise and how I felt vindicated in raising this amazing little mini-me. I spoke longingly of that which once was and my hopes of what might be. All of this happened over half a year before the new film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, came to theaters near us all. I wrote how I respected creator George Lucas for his vision, if not for his revisions. I did all of this before I saw the new film. The new film that Disney created.
