Let’s get down to business to defeat the Sith.

This is so damn good, it makes my soul hurt. Anytime you can mash-up Yoda and the music of Disney’s Mulan, you know you got a winner. I would pay to watch this in IMAX.

Hit the jump and enjoy folks.

Apparently, Darth Vader failed to watch the 2012 Republican Convention where Clint Eastwood pretty much spoke to an empty chair for about ten minutes. Who are you talking to Lord Vader?

Hit the jump, enjoy the video, and have a great weekend.

Congratulations Star Wars! Star Wars toys and collectibles edged out ten nominees to be the newest inductees into the National Toy Hall of Fame at The Strong, a children’s  history museum in New York. Star Wars toys will take it’s rightful seat in the hall of fame with classic toys such as Barbie and Mr. Potato Head.

“Darth Vader is in the house,” Patricia Hogan, the museum’s curator of toys and dolls, said in an interview. “The characters from Star Wars tie into a story that is as ancient as Greek or Roman mythology. They are a force to be reckoned with.”

The National Toy Hall of Fame recognizes toys that promote learning, creativity, and play for decades. The other recipient of this prestigious honor was the game of dominoes.

“I like to think that what links dominoes and the action figures this year is they’re both small but powerful products that create play opportunities,” said Christopher Bensch, the museum’s chief curator.
“We hold those up against our three big criteria: longevity, recognition, and creative learning-engagement play, not just pushing a button and letting something do its trick.”

Congratulations to all Star Wars toys of the past, present, and future. Time to go buy some more action figures!

“A long, long, long, long, loonnnggggg time ago, all the way back in the twenties, in a galaxy far, far away.…”

Remember the infamous opening of Episode IV: A New Hope when Princess Leia’s ship “The Tantive IV” was being chased down by Darth Vader and his Imperial Star Destroyer, “The Devastator”? Yeah, it’s just one of these scenes that you will never forget after you watched it. What if the iconic text crawl and opening sequence of Episode IV was done back in the 1920’s by Disney? Daniel Cox explores that idea in his fan made short. I just wish the video was a bit longer. At least show the damn Devastator!

ERMAHGERD… what the hell is this? This is what I imagine what a Disney stage musical would be like if someone did an amazing amount of crack cocaine. On that note, I have to say that I do give them major props for the pretty good lyrics and attempt at shooting the whole performance in one continuous shot. As for that Mickey Rat Mouse thing, I’m going to have nightmares about that thing.

Hit the jump and enjoy.

I think it’s every parents duty to make sure that their beautiful babies grow up to be Star Wars fan. Thanks to New Zealand based apparel company, Teapot Tees, you can dress your kids in the coolest threads from newborn to toddler. “A Newborn Hope”? “The Infant Strikes Back”? “Return of the Toddler”? What about “The Pooping Menace”? Sadly for anyone living in the United States, each tee will cost you $21 and a hefty $12 on shipping just to get it to your doorstep from New Zealand. Regardless of the price, I think these are worth ever credit. I’m looking forward to picking up a few for my son.

You can order yours at teepottees.com. Hit the jump and check out some more pics!
