Rogue One Honest Trailer

Rogue One Honest Trailer

(SPOILERS) Screen Junkies roasts Star Wars’ 200-million-dollar plot filler. Rogue One is the most exciting movie based on copying a file, despite the fact that Bodhi already managed to escape with a thumb dri– you know what? Vader made it all worth it.

The Force Awakens Bad Lip Reading

The Force Awakens Bad Lip Reading

Bad Lip Reading not only made us laugh our asses off with their take on Episode VII, they managed to get Mark Hamill himself to play the voice of Han Solo. Admiral Ackbar made us spit out our coffee, and “I like monkeeeee… You’re the monkey” is the new “I love you. I know.”

Making Rogue One’s Vader Scene

Making Rogue One’s Vader Scene

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s director Gareth Edwards spoke to Wired about how they made Darth Vader’s kickass scene at the end of the movie. It turns out they didn’t think of it until just 4 months before the film’s release. We also learn who currently has the Death Star plans.

Death Star Teapot & Mug

Death Star Teapot & Mug

As you can tell by their accents, the Imperials love tea time. ThinkGeek commissioned a weapon that annihilates productivity in the name of that sacred tradition. This ceramic set consists of a 12oz teapot and 6oz mug that can be stacked to look like the Death Star.

Droids in the News

Droids in the News

“My apologies. Most apologetic.” Jack of all Genius spoofs the viral BBC clip of the kids crashing a live news segment. This time it’s R2-D2 and BB-8 interrupting Darth Vader’s commentary. Be careful not to choke on your crisps, children.

How Rogue One Should’ve Ended

How Rogue One Should’ve Ended

“Save the rebellion, save the dream! Oh, and save your message!” Galen gives Bodhi the blueprints instead of just his Hallmark hologram, everyone shoots first and asks questions later, and Vader is still badass in HISHE’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story parody.

R2-D2 with a Voice

R2-D2 with a Voice

Auralnauts envisions what Star Wars: A New Hope would have been like if instead of speaking in bleeps and beeps, R2-D2 could actually speak English. The only thing better would have been if they got Stephen Merchant to do the voice.

Star Wars Soy Sauce Dishes

Star Wars Soy Sauce Dishes

Keep your sushi hydrated with some salty soy sauce, and the help of some of Star Wars’ most iconic characters. These ceramic dishes feature heads of Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper, C-3PO, and R2-D2. Even though they’re priced at $100, we still want them to turn up outside of Japan.

R2-D2 Drink Cooler

R2-D2 Drink Cooler

BB-8 might be adorable and all, but R2-D2 is still way more versatile from what we’ve seen. For example, he can keep your drinks cool in this tabletop fridge which can hold up to 16 cans of your favorite drink. Measures 24-1/2″ tall x 12″ diameter. Motivator unit sold separately.

C-3PO Body Paint

C-3PO Body Paint

We’ve seen makeup artist Kay Pike’s amazing body paint creations before, but this golden protocol droid from Star Wars might be her best yet – with those exposed wires in her belly and flat eyes painted on her eyelids. The red arm from The Force Awakens is a nice touch.

IKEA Death Star Lamp

IKEA Death Star Lamp

Instructables contributor MariaK64 shows us how to transform a IKEA PS 2014 pendant lamp into an exploding Death Star with nothing more than paint, masking tape, and some artistic skill. But instead of firing at the exhaust port, simply pull the cord to blow it to bits.

Chogy C-3PO & R2-D2 Action Figures

Chogy C-3PO & R2-D2 Action Figures

Toymaker Chogy came up with the coolest version of C-3PO we’ve ever seen. Chogy turned the protocol droid into a dude clad in gold pants and zip-up hoodie, with Artoo as his skateboard. The wiring undershirt is a neat idea. Limited to 20 pieces.

Trench Run Audience Reaction

Trench Run Audience Reaction

In 1977, William Forsche recorded the sound of himself, his mom and other moviegoers reacting to the destruction of the Death Star in the Star Wars: A New Hope. YouTuber Homer Thompson synced the sound with the scene. What a time to be alive.

Star War: The Third Gathers

Star War: The Third Gathers

(PG-13: Language) “I feel far from good.” A few years ago we checked out the hilariously bad English subtitles on a Chinese pirated copy of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. YouTuber DeathJohnsonMisc dubbed some of the funniest passages into the film.

The Untold Story of Darth Vader

The Untold Story of Darth Vader

While its title is a bit hyperbolic, Looper’s look at one of the most recognized and downright evil dudes in the history of movies is still a good watch, and provides at least a couple of tidbits about the character and the actors that portrayed him that we didn’t already know.
