Als Ice Bucket Challenge is the meme that can't be stopped. But unlike planking, or owling, or whatever came after owling, the Ibc is doing a lot of good. So far this year the Als Association has raised nearly $80 million. The uptick has been so sharp that think pieces are being written about if blending narcissism with charity has forever changed the fundraising landscape (for the better). So behold the power of this fully operational social media challenge. From Han Solo to Luke Skywalker to Chewbacca and beyond, the denizens of a galaxy far, far away are helping raise awareness for Als. The elusive Daisy Ridley performed her Ibc in the safety of the shower. Harrison Ford kept it short and sweet. Mark Hamill adorkably tried to game the system and utterly failed. Peter Mayhew brought along his wife for moral support. Awwww. Oscar Isacc allegedly had Adam Driver and »

We've heard this rumor before. That Ian McDiarmid will be reprising his role as Emperor Palpatine (aka Darth Sidious) in Star Wars: Episode VII. But now Latino Review is confirming from two different sources that the character will indeed return, though he may not be played by Ian McDiarmid, who took over the role in 1983's Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and returned to play him in all three prequels, beginning with Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace in 1999, and continuing in 2002's Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and 2005's Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.

It's a very good time to be a Star Wars fan these days, with Star Wars: Episode VII currently in production and the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels starting its run on Disney Xd later this fall. A new report from Badass Digest reveals LucasFilm and Disney are planning on tying in this show, and other materials such as the upcoming Marvel comics, into the movie canon.
Here's what an unidentified LucasFilm employee had to say in a brief statement.
"We're going to redefine longform storytelling."
The original Star Wars trilogy spawned the Expanded Universe, a massive series of novels, comic books and video games that told peripheral stories outside of the main movie franchise. We reported in April that the new trilogy will avoid the Expanded Universe story lines, which was confirmed a few days later by LucasFilm in a statement that revealed Star Wars Rebels will be »

After 25 years of The Simpsons, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who can’t recount at least one joke from the long-running animated series. From Homer’s “Doh” to Bart’s “eat my shorts,” it’s a show stuffed with more iconic moments than anything else. Some of the best, of course, are courtesy of celebrity cameos.
Whether it’s classic stars like Leonard Nimoy or newer sensations like LeBron James, The Simpsons only invites the best talent to join its hallowed ranks. It’s seen Tom Jones performing at gun point, Luke Perry as a sideshow act, Star Wars‘ own Mark Hamill being rescued by Homer himself, and Xena: Warrior Princess aka Lucy Lawless flying through the air. There’s serious actors being silly, talk show hosts like Conan O’Brien getting meta, and legendary musicians — yes, ‘N Sync counts — passing through the tiny town of Springfield. »

It is a fascinating moment to be a "Star Wars" fan. Right now, there is arguably more energy being expended on all things "Star Wars" than ever before. I remember the feeling in the early days of development on what became "Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace," when there were just rumbles of a possible new film or even *Gasp!* a new trilogy of films. Hell, I remember when the Special Editions were just a rumor. I remember when a friend of mine called and said, "They're not a rumor. I have something to show you." He came by my house with a videotape, and on that videotape was the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: A New Hope - The Special Edition," the very first new "Star Wars" footage in what had been fourteen years at that point. It was mind-blowing. It made me reassess »

A new Star Wars: Episode VII photo shows a portion of the Tatooine sets that have been built at London's Pinewood Studios. It was previously revealed that some of the scenes taking place on Luke Skywalker's home planet would be built on set, and this is believed to be where J.J. Abrams shot his Star Wars: Force For Change video that revealed a new X-Wing fighter.
The huts in this photo reportedly belong to the Tusken Raiders (otherwise known as The Sand People), but that has not been confirmed (though there were previous reports of some Tusken Raiders spotted on set). A good portion of the Tatooine scenes from Star Wars: Episode VII were shot in Dubai. A number of photos leaked from this location earlier in the year. To revisit those images: (clickHere)

A lot of inside Intel from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII has leaked, with huge plot details being spoiled left and right. Despite the deluge of information that is currently on the Internet, the main cast and the filmmakers have very little to say about the actual film itself.

And while he doesn't reveal any new character information or his driving motivation in the sequel, he did have a lot to say about his involevement and love for the franchise.
Adam Driver first opened up about his time spent with the original cast and what it felt like to be a part of such a huge Hollywood event.
"Doing Star Wars now-that's surreal. I feel like that even with this cast. You start by »
