DARTH DADDY's CUSTOMIZING CORNER: EVILIVO

0 comments

Wicket & Logray


By: Darth Daddy

Our latest customizer hails from Eastern Europe.  Featuring some of the most impressive paint applications in the community today, Evilivo is shaping up to be one of our favorite Star Wars customizers!

Evilivo (Ivo Domozetov from Bulgaria) was introduced to Star Wars at age 5, and immediately fell in love with the movies and the toys. He's been doing fixes to his action figures since his early years with the Vintage Kenner toy line and now later with Hasbro's revived line. Over the years customizing action figures replaced playing with the figures. Evilivo works as professional sculptor and jeweler and the attention to detail that his job requires definitely spills over into his artistic creations as well. He usually just alters and improves existing figures, since securing multiples of some figures is much harder to do in his part of the world, but don't let that diminish your curiosity.  His work is just beautiful, and he has the ability to make the paint applications on his figures "pop" like no other artists out there.  The internet gave Star Wars customizer Evilivo the opportunity to discover the customizing forums at different Star Wars sites where he said he has found his "new family".  We love having him as a part of it.  His work continues to inspire.  Take a look.

Leia Organa: Page vs. Screen

0 comments

By: Lillian Skye

Have you ever stopped to consider who would win in a face off: Leia Organa from the Expanded Universe novels or Leia Organa from the Original Trilogy?

"Each year Suvudu pits iconic characters from the Sci-Fi and Fantasy canon in a battle..." Suvudu  asks "geek writiers" to dramatize the battles so that readers can vote for the characters who they would expect to win.

Two Leias are being pitted against each other, and each has their own advantages and disadvantages--"book" Leia becomes familiar with the Force in the Star Wars novels, while "screen" Leia is handy with a blaster. Book Leia has dealt with the trauma of her children being fed lies from the Dark Side, while screen Leia never relented from challenging Lord Vader himself. Book Leia is wiser and more well-rounded, while screen Leia is well known for her spunk and tenacity.

 - - - -

Here's an except of how Suvudu believes an interaction between the characters would play out:

Book Leia (she is considerably older than screen Leia, by 20 years or so, and possessed of more gravitas, though her beauty is undimmed): Hmmmm. I’m not getting any of the usual Vader-stench. Strange. This is no trick: it appears that we are both Princess Leia. Though I believe I must be from your future, as you are from my past. How can this be?

Screen Leia: I don’t get it either. Time travel is way more of a Star Trek thing. We don’t mess around with that stuff in Star Wars.

Book Leia: Though there are precedents. There was this one comic book from the 1990’s, Star Wars Galaxy 2, where …

Screen Leia: Yeah, yeah, I can read Wookieepedia too. Look, I’m representing the movies here, I don’t hold with any of that Expanded Universe continuity. Maybe it’s like that cave on Dagobah where Luke had to fight Vader, but it wasn’t really Vader, because then his mask fell off and it was Luke’s face … you see where I’m going with this. It could be one of those Jedi worthiness tests.

Harrison Ford Reddit AMA Recap

0 comments
By: Benjamin Hart

The one and only scruffy looking nerf herder, Harrison Ford, recently took to Reddit to answer questions from fans in an "ask me anything"(AMA). I sorted through them and picked out all the Star Wars related answers, as well as some of the more interesting ones about Indiana Jones, Blade Runner and more. Check them out below!

Harrison's words are in bold.


SuperC142: Hi Mr, Ford. I think we would all like to know: Who shot first? Han Solo or Greedo?

I don't know and I don't care.


Makuta: Did you ad lib Han's famous line "I know"?

It's not really an ad lib, it was a suggestion, and movie making's a real collaborative process at its best. You don't ad lib it, you suggest it and then you try something in rehearsal and then you agree. So it was my suggestion, because I thought it was more of a character line than what was written, but the director and Carrie and I all thought it was a good idea at the time so we did it.

AFatEskimo: Are you still mad at Lando?

Lando who?


Battlescarred98: What would you rather fight: 100 chicken sized Jabba the Hutts or 1 Jabba the Hutt sized chicken?

The latter. Please.


spartanss300: How did you feel about Star Wars when you first started? How were you approached?

I was approached with the offer of a job, which at that point, was all I wanted to hear. I had helped George Lucas audition other actors for the principle parts, and with no expectation or indication that I might be considered for the part of Han, I was quite surprised when I was offered the part. My principle job at the time was carpentry, I had been under contract as an actor at Columbia and Universal. I had a house at the time I wanted to remodel, a bit of the wreck of a house. I'd invest money in tools but wouldn't have money for materials, so I realized this was another way of putting food on the table. And allowing me to pick and choose from the acting jobs that were being offered at the time.


TBTakaTBT: Can you elaborate on what happened between you and Chewbacca that lead to you having a falling out?

Ha. Well that was a skit for Kimmel, I think. With his writers, the idea behind it was that Chewbacca had borrowed my fictional wife.


se7en30: If you and Mark Hamill fought who would win?

Me, of course.


MrPink24: Who did you prefer portraying, Han or Indiana?

I think Indiana Jones was a lot of fun to do because of the places we went to and the adventures and the action. But Han Solo was also a huge part of my life.

veeler: I love you.

I know.


breylin: Were there any injuries / weird occurrences / funny stories on any of the Indiana Jones sets?

Oh, let's see. On the first Indiana Jones movie, I tore an ACL in one of my knees, can't remember which knee, the scene in which I was fighting the big German mechanic on an airplane called a flying wing, I was run over by the landing gear and injured my knee, but I can't remember which one it was. Lots of bumps and injuries along the way.
Funny stories? We were shooting in Tunisia, and the script had a scene in which I fight a swordsman, an expert swordsman, it was meant to be the ultimate duel between sword and whip. And I was suffering from dysentery, really, found it inconvenient to be out of my trailer for more than 10 minutes at a time. We'd done a brief rehearsal of the scene the night before we were meant to shoot it, and both Steve and I realized it would take 2 or 3 days to shoot this. And it was the last thing we were meant to shoot in Tunisia before we left to shoot in England. And the scene before this in the film included a whip fight against 5 bad guys that were trying to kidnap Marian, so I thought it was a bit redundant. I was puzzling how to get out of this 3 days of shooting, so when I got to set I proposed to Steven that we just shoot the son a b**** and Steve said "I was thinking that as well." So he drew his sword, the poor guy was a wonderful British stuntman who had practiced his sword skills for months in order to do this job, and was quite surprised by the idea that we would dispatch him in 5 minutes. But he flourished his sword, I pulled out my gun and shot him, and then we went back to England.


iamaAMAfan: Hello Harrison! Who would win in a celebrity boxing match: Han Solo or Indiana Jones?

The promoter would win.


TJ_Silva: Hey! First I'd like to say when I was younger I use to think Indiana Jones played Han Solo in Star Wars. I was corrected many times but still didn't quite understand as a five year old. My question, what was it like being a part of two of the most iconic film series? Thank you for all your work!

What was it like? It was like being incredibly lucky.


Brownie_scout: How do you feel about snakes?

I actually like snakes! When I was young, I was a boy scout nature camp counselor, and one of our projects was collecting snakes and creating an environment for them, so I'm quite familiar with snakes and think they'r fantastic creatures.


shivan21: Hi Harrison! How do you choose your projects? And has this process changed for you since 1980s?

You know, it's very hard to say what the motivation is these days. Most of the time I love the material, have the time free, and look for something different to do. I look for people I enjoy working with, I look for material that i think will make a film that people will go to. It's my job.


goborage: What movie quote do you get asked to do the most?

"Get off my plane."


DrRockso2112: What's the best and what's the worst set you've ever been on?

The set for Blade Runner was maybe the hardest set I've ever worked on because I think we worked 50 nights in a row, and it was always raining.

rootwinterguard: Harrison, Blade Runner is my favorite movie of all time. What are you thoughts on Ridley Scott's talk of making a sequel? How can he improve upon perfection?

I'm quite curious and excited about seeing a new script for Blade Runner if in fact the opportunity would exist to do another, if it's a good script I would be very anxious to work with Ridley Scott again, he's a very talented and passionate filmmaker. And I think it would be very interesting to revisit the character.


ClumpOfPubes: Did you keep any props from any of your movies, if so which ones are your favorite?

No, I don't keep any, I'm not terribly nostalgic and I don't have a lot of things from my movies. And certainly don't have a lot of them around my house. Those are separate worlds for me.


spannybear: Hey Harrison, Huge fan of all your work, I was wondering what was your most enjoyable skill that you learned for a specific role and which role was it? And how did you go about learning it?

Well, I don't know that I've learned any real skill, but what I love about acting is learning about different lives, so when you play a policeman, you will often spend some time with policemen that can help you understand them and what goes on in the real life of a policeman, same with a doctor, a surgeon, a scientist, a secret agent, so you get to learn something about different people's lives every time. Research is very important to me.


rozman0: Hello Mr. Ford. Do you have any words of wisdom you'd be willing to share with an aspiring actor?

You know, all I can say is that it's rewarding and challenging, and the competition is so strong that the chances of being successful in that area are statistically daunting. But most people give up, or are unable to sustain themselves until they have the opportunity to become successful which means to get work, so the only thing I can say is try to figure out how not to give up. If it's a true ambition and you really have a passion for storytelling, try and figure out how to hang in there.


backgen[??]: Hi Harrison! I've seen you on a couple of late night talk shows, where it really seems that you hate being interviewed, or maybe you're just uncomfortable? Am i right? And if i am...why?

Oh no, in most cases, those guys are so talented and so funny. I don't hate it at all, in fact it's interesting you would think that because I usually have a really good time. I'm there to bring attention to some project that's about to be released, and it's great to be able to take advantage of that to bring attention to bring attention to the film.


biscuitSnatcher: I live in your old house on Woodrow. Are there any secrets I should know about?

Yes. There's millions of dollars buried in your basement.


TheHenryHoover: What is your favourite type of cheese?

Manchego.


Someone said thank you for being a part of so many childhood films: Well, thank you. I really appreciate that. It's a privilege to be able to be involved with people as talented as the people I've had the luck to work with, and it's just been a great experience for me, and I'm glad that so many of the films I've had the luck to do were films that could be enjoyed by families together.

Opinion: Knows About Anakin and Padme, Yoda Does

2 comments

One of the big questions that gets raised about the prequels and The Clone Wars animated series is who knows about the relationship between Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala.  We know that Palpatine/Darth Sidious knows, and it wouldn't be much of a stretch to suspect that Obi-Wan Kenobi knows.  But who else?  Specifically, does Yoda, grand master of the Jedi council, know about the chosen one's love life?  I would say yes!  Or at the very least he suspects there is more to that relationship than meets the eye.  

Looking at how Yoda handles Anakin having premonitions about the death of Padme versus how Yoda handles Ahsoka having premonitions about the death of Padme, there is a clear difference.  This signifies to me that Yoda understand the key distinction between the two situations.

In Revenge of the Sith, Yoda tells Anakin,

"Careful you must be when sensing the future Anakin. The fear of loss is a path to the dark side...Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed that is...Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose."

However in the episode of The Clone Wars "Assasin", he tells Ahsoka,

Preminitions, telling something they are....So you begin to see the true power of the Force, visions they are.  Underestimate them you must not. Meditate.  To see clearly, more experience you need.  

Then later in the episode he adds,

"Choose you must, how to respond to your visions.  But remember always in motion is the future and many possible futures there are."

Those are two very different pieces of advice for what boils down to the same problem, both Anakin and Ahsoka are having visions that someone close to them will be killed.  Yet Yoda gives them such different advice.  He tells Ahsoka that it is the "true power of the Force" and encourages her to respond to the visions.  However, he tells Anakin to train himself to let go of everything he fears to loose.  Why the difference?  Because he knows he is dealing with two very different relationships.

I firmly believe that Yoda gives Anakin this advice because he knows the situation.  He knows that he's not just dealing with a good friendship, that there is a high level of attachment here that he only way to avoid such high levels of pain is the break off that attachment.  With Ahsoka, at worst she looses a friend at the hand of a deadly assassin.  While that's not an ideal situation, it's not the worst possible outcome.  If Anakin looses Padme, it is the worst possible outcome (not just for Anakin and Padme, as it turns out, but for the entire galaxy).  Yoda can clearly sense the amount of pain Anakin carries with him, and probably realizes that the loss of Padme, could be the event to push Anakin over the edge.  This explains why his advice essentially amounts to telling Anakin to break things off with Padme before they both get hurt.  

But how do we know that Yoda knows Anakin is referring to Padme in that scene.  The Clone Wars series gives us moments where Yoda seems to indicate that he knows there is something going on between the Jedi and the Senator.  One of these moments first comes from the season 2 episode "Senate Spy".  When being briefed by Yoda, Obi-Wan, and Mace Windu on the situation involving Padme's ex-lover and separatist spy Senator Rush Clovis, Anakin blurts out that he was unaware of Padme's history with Clovis.  This is met with a raised eyebrow from Obi-Wan, and the line "Personal matters of the Senator, there are.  Know them why would you?" from Yoda.  The way Yoda says this doesn't come across as if he's surprised, but rather amused that Anakin would say such a thing in front of three Jedi Masters.  This suggests to me, that Yoda is not challenging Anakin on his reasons for saying something like that, but rather hinting to Anakin that he needs to be more careful in what he says.

Yoda seems far too wise to miss the signs that something is going on between Anakin and Padme.  He also knows that Anakin carries a lot of pain with and him, and perhaps hopes that Anakin will outgrow his infatuation with Padme.   Or perhaps he see's this a potential learning experience for Anakin.  Or maybe, he's been questioning if the order is really doing the right thing by forbidding attachment, Yoda seems to know the Jedi are on the wrong path by the time of Episode II, and is curious to see how things work out between Anakin and Padme.

Regardless, one thing is certain, Yoda knows.

Rumor: First Set Picture From Episode VII

1 comments
By: Dominic Jones

Have we just gotten our first glimpse at the set of Star Wars Episode VII?  The Abu Dhabi newspaper The National thinks so!  The paper posted the photo online, with the speculation that this is part of the set for Episode VII.  According to The National,

"The National photographer Mona Al Marzooqi has captured what are believed to be the first images of Star Wars: Episode VII set deep in the Abu Dhabi desert.

The photos, taken on Tuesday morning in the dunes near Qasr Al Sarab resort, reveal a large encampment of tents with four to five workers moving around what appear to be parts of a filmset.

It is one piece of equipment in particular, however, that is the most suggestive: a giant, round, grey disc, which bears a striking resemblance to parts of an escape pod on which C3P0 and R2D2 crash-landed on Tatooine in the original, 1977, Star Wars: A New Hope film."

Check out the picture and decide for yourself, 

As to whether the rumors are true or not, this does line up with a story from last week that said filming for Episode VII would be taking place in Abu Dhabi.  Also, those sand dunes look like they would make a great location for Tatooine!

As always this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.

StarWars.Com Homepage Re-Design

0 comments
By: Dominic Jones

The team over at StarWars.com unveiled their new homepage for the site today.  While it's not a drastic change and only applies to the homepage (the other pages on the site maintain the old look), it takes a minimalist approach to the page.  

I like the new look of the site and the Ralph McQuarrie painting at the top of the page is an excellent touch!

MTV Searches for Star Wars Cast

0 comments

By: Lillian Skye

So...are you in Star Wars?

That may not be the sneakiest way to find out who has been cast, but it is definitely a bold--and brilliantly hilarious--move on MTV's part. It has been confirmed that Episode VII has already begun filming. However, fans have no idea who is starring in the film. MTV caught up with Now You See Me's Dave Franco, The Fault in Our Stars author John Green, and Grumpy Cat, a popular member of the feline family.

With Adam Devine admitting to playing George Lucas and Molly Tarlov "confessing" that she's playing a new character named 'Boni Nana,' a character who "is 800 years old but looks 20",  Episode VII's cast of characters is growing rapidly.

Interested in watching all of the stars' reactions to MTV's daunting question? Check out the video below:

Todd Stashwick Co-Writing Upcoming Star Wars Video Game

0 comments
By: Dominic Jones

The upcoming Star Wars video game being produced by the studio Visceral is really starting to shape up.  Last week we heard that Uncharted's Amy Henning would be head of production on the game, and today she revealed that Todd Stashwick would be co-writing the game with her! 
Stashwick is best known as an actor (perhaps he'll lend his voice to the game as well!), with roles on shows such as Heroes, Supernatural, and The Originals.  As for writing, he is the co-creator of the popular Devil Inside web comic. 

Still no details on the plot or style of the game but with the annual E3 convention coming up in a few months, we might be finding out soon!

Star Wars Characters Not Joining Disney Infinity Game

0 comments
By: Dominic Jones

A few months ago there were some rumors suggesting that Star Wars characters would be joining the highly popular Disney Infinity online game and action figure series.  Unfortunately, Disney has put an end to those rumors, for the time being.

In response to a question on the Disney Store Facebook Page about if Star Wars Characters would be joining Disney Infinity, the Disney Store Page replied, "there are no plans for Star Wars to join Disney Infinity at this moment in time."  The store was promoting a new Darth Vader figure/statue (it's unclear which) that will be hitting Disney Stores soon, when the question was asked if the figure was for Disney Infinity.

Would you like to see Star Wars characters added to Disney Infinity?  I think it makes sense and will almost certainly happen at some point down the line.  Let us know your thoughts in the comments, tweet us @TheSWU, or join the discussion in Club SWU on Facebook!

0 comments
By: Dominic Jones

Star Wars Insider Magazine #149 has announced the event hosts for Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, happening April 16-19, 2015.   The hosts are:
  • James Arnold Taylor (voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi on Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be hosting the Main/Celebration Stage.  This will be Taylor's second time hosting the stage, he's previously hosted the stage at Celebration VI in 2012.
  • David Collins (former LucasArts sound designer and voice of Proxy in The Force Unleashed) will be hosting the digital stage.  This will be Collins fifth time hosting the stage, he's previously hosted the stage at Celebrations IV, V, VI, and Europe II.
  • Gus Lopez will be hosting the Collecting Track, a series of panels targeted to collectors.  Lopez has previously hosted the collecting track at several past Celebrations.
We heard last week that our friends RebelForce Radio hosts Jason Swank and Jimmy Mac would be hosting the Behind the Scenes Stage at Celebration Anaheim.  With stage hosts now confirmed, the next step is guest announcements (though with Celebration still over a year away, we might have to wait a while for those).

Personally, I don't think that you could ask for a better group of hosts for Star Wars Celebration!

#Cumberwatch: Benedict Cumberbatch Rules Himself Out of Episode VII

0 comments
By: Dominic Jones


It's time for Cumberwatch!  The most persistent Star Wars Episode VII rumor was brought up again this weekend when  Benedict Cumberbatch spoke at the Oz Comic Con.  Naturally the prospect of the Sherlock star appearing in Episode VII during his Q&A.  Sadly his answer isn't quite what we were hoping for.  Cumberbatch told the audience, "I would've liked a part in JJ's new Star Wars but it won't happen, sadly."

His response is pretty much par for the course when it comes the Cumberbatch/Star Wars rumors.  That being said, every time we thought we ruled out Cumberbatch, it was met with a new rumor stating that he is in the film (I put the over/under at two weeks for the Cumberbatch next rumor).  But the biggest piece of evidence suggesting that he really is out of the running is that he is slated to appear in another film which films at the same time as Episode VII.

As always, if you choose to share this story on any of the various social media sites, be sure to use the hashtag #Cumberwatch.

Rumor: Episode VII Filming In Abu Dhabi

0 comments
By: Benjamin Hart

The Hollywood Reporter is at it again! Their newest report claims that filming for Star Wars Episode VII is scheduled to take place in Abu Dhabi for several weeks in May:

"Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Star Wars: Episode VII will shoot in and around the city-state, which is part of the United Arab Emirates, beginning mid-May. Sources also say it would be a four-week shoot."

HR speculates that that film crews will be taking advantage of the area's desert climate to portray Tatooine. As you can see from the photo above, Abu Dhabi itself is a sprawling city and doesn't resemble Tatooine at all. It could also be that the exotic, modern architecture of Abu Dhabi will be featured as the cityscape for a yet unseen planet in the Galaxy far, far away. "In and around" the city could mean anything. Also, they previously reported that filming for scenes on Tatooine would be taking place in Morocco. They mention the fact that due to political unrest in Tunisia, where a majority of the Tatooine scenes in previous films were shot, makes it far too dangerous for J.J Abrams & crew to travel there for filming. If what HR says is true, it could mean that a return to Tatooine in Episode VII is requiring more than one country to replace Tunisa.

As always, it's not official until we hear it from Lucasfilm. Take this with a grain of salt.
