The second trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story reveals heroine Jyn Erso’s connection to the Death Star. We’re getting cringey vibes from the dialogue we’ve heard so far, but we’re still optimistic about this spinoff.

Building a LEGO Death Star

Building a LEGO Death Star

A wonderfully satisfying stop-motion time-lapse of the construction of the 4,016 piece LEGO Death Star, captured by Bart van Dijk. We love the way he morphed each frame of the build, so the bricks don’t just pop in, and instead emerge smoothly.
