Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles

Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles
DVD
Starring Eric Bauza, Michael Daingerfield, Anthony Daniels, Trevor Devall
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment
Release date: September 13, 2015

LEGO and Star Wars proved they were a winning combination when they teamed up in 2005 for Lego Star Wars: The Video Game, and the two properties have made a perfect marriage of fun every since.

Lego Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles is a DVD collection of four 22-minute episodes of the Lego Star Wars television series that aired on Disney XD in 2014 in what is actually the second season. While the first season (collected as Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles) was set during the Prequel era, these new episodes take place mostly during the Original Trilogy years and feature Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia, as well as the droids C-3PO and R2-D2, and of course Yoda. But, there’s many more familiar faces appearing as animated LEGO versions of their big-screen selves in this round of tales.

12-inch Yoda with LED Lightsaber Tree Topper

With the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens still far, far away (December 18, 2015), there are a few ways to get your Star Wars fix; however, this little holiday item may just shine the brightest of all.

This 12-inch Star Wars Yoda with LED Lightsaber Tree Topper by Kurt Adler has been tested and approved. It all started with a Geeks of Doom Holiday Gift Guide. These are not just for our readers, folks. My interest was immediately piqued when I stumbled upon this Christmas Tree Topper on Amazon. And when I added it on a whim to my Amazon wishlist, I had no idea that this little piece of Christmas magic would change my life.

I was lucky enough to receive this topper in the mail as a Christmas gift, and when I opened the box, I was stunned. There is no other way to put it (okay, I have a few more ways). This is Yoda as you have never seen him before. His beautiful, handpainted face is almost as impressive as his bright green, shining lightsaber. My living room has changed from a cute decorated room to a magical land of wonder and amusement where the Force is extremely strong (I may be exaggerating a little bit). But really, when I beheld this Yoda at the top of my Christmas tree, my jaw dropped.

Update: ‘Star Wars’ Standalone Character Movies Not So Official Yet, Just Early-Stage Ideas

This has been a week of Star Wars rumors as multiple stories have lit the ‘net on fire in relation to the standalone movies Disney plans to make apart from the numbered sequels.

It began with whispers of a possible standalone movie focusing on the popular character Yoda. Disney CEO Bob Iger then confirmed that they would be making standalone movies based on various Star Wars characters, with none being named specifically. Finally came word of potential movies following a both Boba Fett and a younger Han Solo.

Now Disney is taking a big step back and wants said ‘net to take a nice deep breath while they clarify a bit on what’s really going on.

Rumor For Your Thoughts: Will The First Standalone ‘Star Wars’ Movie Focus On Yoda?
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

Yoda Image

We’ve had a seemingly endless supply of Star Wars news since Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm, and with this endless supply of news comes an equal amount of rumors, as is to be expected. Which of these rumors will rise up and prove to be accurate is part of the fun. Most of the news we’ve heard regards Star Wars Episode VII, the long-awaited (and once thought impossible) first movie in the third trilogy. The beginning of the final chapters in what will be a trilogy of trilogies. Unless you’re one of those folks that chooses to pretend the prequel trilogy doesn’t exist, in which case ignore everything being said here.

The first of the big rumors we’ve heard was that Darth Vader might return in Episode VII. Then came word that Zack Snyder was developing one of the standalone Star Wars movies, the first of a planned many individual movies telling individual stories separate from the numbered flicks. That rumor was denied quickly and its validity remains to be seen, but now comes a new rumor to feed on. What would you say if the first standalone Star Wars movie told a story centered around the one and only Yoda?

Disney In Depth: Disney To Acquire Lucasfilm, An Analysis From The Disney Fan Perspective
space

Disney In Depth banner

We were all shocked to discover when Darth Vader revealed himself to be Luke Skywalker’s father. But we experienced perhaps even more shock when news broke this week that The Walt Disney Company was acquiring Lucasfilm, George Lucas’ 41-years-strong company. Now, Mickey Mouse will be both Vader’s and Luke’s parent, though not by blood — what an awkward “modern family” that deserves some critical examination.

Puns and jokes aside, this $4 billion purchase follows what has been a whirlwind of new ventures for Disney in just the past seven years since Bob Iger attained the role of CEO of The Walt Disney Company. 2006 marked Disney’s purchase of Pixar. 2009 signified Disney’s purchase of Marvel. And now 2012 represents news of Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm. One can only imagine what the Mouse House will obtain in 2015 if this ironically-consistent pattern of buying a big entity every three years continues. These heavily-expensive, but ingenious acquisitions reflect Disney’s focus of branding and leveraging well-known and well-received properties.

Darth Vader and Yoda Burger

A French fast food restaurant called Quick is making some specialty burgers in conjunction with the re-release of Star Wars: Episode 1 — The Phantom Menace in 3D.

The trio of burgers each draw inspiration from the Star Wars universe. The first is the “Dark Burger,” inspired by Darth Maul (or “Dark Maul”), which can be seen here. Then comes the “Jedi Burger,” inspired by Master Yoda and the Jedi, and last but not least, the “Dark Vador” burger, which is of course inspired by Darth Vader and can be seen above. The Vader burger is the most notable of the three because it comes on a jet-black “carbonized” bun.
