AVbyte and the Hipster Disney Princesses are back with a new addition to their singing group, Princess Leia from Star Wars! I’m guessing that now that Disney owns Lucasfilm, it’s only right that Princess Leia becomes a Disney Princess. In their newest song, the Disney Princesses gives Leia the rundown on how to be a proper “Disney Princess”. I don’t think breaking into song or starvation is needed for Leia to be a great Disney Princess. All she has to do is strap on a blaster and just be the same bad ass she always has been. No need to change at all.

I love and hate Star Wars Episode VII rumors. After the announcement of Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm and news that Star Wars Episode VII will drop in 2015, the Internet has been rampant with speculations and rumors regarding the newest installment in the Star Wars franchise. Now, EW has the exclusive that everyone’s favorite scruffy nerfherder, Harrison Ford AKA Han Fucking Solo is open to returning to the Star Wars universe alongside Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia).

“Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he’s upbeat about it, all three of them are,” said one highly placed source, referring to Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher, the trio that made a hyper-speed jump to global fame on May 25, 1977, the opening night for George Lucas’s original Star Wars film.

Let the speculation begin! It was already announced that the newest Star Wars film is be an original story. Considering Ford is now the ripe age of 70, the only real storyline that seems probable for the return of Ford, Hamill, and Fisher would have to be Legacy of the Force from the Star Wars Expanded Universe. That would make an interesting trilogy as it follows the story of Han Solo and Princess Leia’s three children, Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin Solo. If with that possibility, I doubt that Disney and Lucasfilm has any intentions on producing films based on existing content. However, it’s more concerning whether Harrison will be willing to invest another decade of his later years to this project. I’m not putting any money on this ever happening, but I have to admit. It would be amazing to see Han Solo back on the big screen.

Gas prices are climbing every year and fuel economy is all the rage now. While a lot of people are moving to hybrids vehicles, many are taking their chances on two-wheeled death machines. If you’re planning on riding a scooter such as a Vespa, why not make it look bitchin’ cool like fifth grade teacher and Star Wars fanatic, Morgan did. Morgan took her white Vespa and customized it into R2-D2 Scooter!

I am a fifth grade teacher/SW nerd, and I recently converted my Vespa that I ride into work every day to look like the one and only R2. This was done with adhesive vinyl, some meticulous cutting and a 12-pack of beer. It gets a lot of looks and thumbs up, and often times while I am sitting at a stop light someone crossing the street will pause to take notice. The rear trunk is a real vintage piece and I removed the original faded travel stickers and replaced them with various retro style Star Wars art and posters that I found on the internet.

It’s pretty amazing what a twelve pack of beer and steady hands can accomplish (I doubt the beer helped with the steady hands though…). Good well done, Morgan. You deserve more beers!

Scott Holden has done the Galactic Empire proud. For Halloween, Scott put together a mind blowing 14 foot AT-ST (scaled up from an AT-ST toy) costume from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Scott created this lurking death machine out of pink styrofoam, latex caulking, glue, paint, a lot of elbow grease, and some mathematics. All I can say is that all the kids dressed as Jedis and Ewoks better watch out! Scott is ready to stomp the hell out of some Rebel Scum and steal all their candy.

Hit the jump and check out Scott’s AT-ST costume in action. Have a happy Halloween minions.

Just in case you ever find yourself on Tatooine dealing with scum like Jabba the Hutt, make sure you pick up a Huttese translator ring before you agree to anything because who knows what the heck Boss Hutt is yapping at you. It’s not like you will have a Huttese translator droid on hand all the time. Mind as slip one of these suckers on before you agree on the terms on how many Ewok pelts he’s willing to buy. At the price of 14 credits, it will practically pay for itself (and it looks pretty bad ass as well).

Where to buy: Amazon

The talented folks at Black Milk Clothing is at it again by taking Star Wars and adding a whole lot of sex appeal to it. Black Milk just released their newest Star Wars inspired dresses, leggings, and swimsuits. The classic R2-D2 dress and swimsuit got an upgrade and iconic characters such as Boba Fett and Darth Vader finally got some love from Black Milk. In addition to the merc and the Sith Lord, Black Milk also dazzled up a cool polyester/LYCRA skin tight dress with the almighty Death Star. Hopefully, the Death Star dress doesn’t have any weak point as this might lead to some awkward clothing malfunctions. Considering how cool Black Milk Clothing’s Star Wars line is, I have to say that I have mixed feelings about the Ewok dress. What is it about that Ewok dress that I want to shoot it with a blaster regardless if there is a cute girl wearing it. Oh well.

You can buy Black Milk’s newest releases at blackmilkclothing.com. Hit the jump and check out the new collection!
