Petition to Build Death Star Gaining Steam

On the White House's website there is a "We The People" section, which allows citizens to "petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country." If any submitted petition gets 25,000 E-signatures, then the White House will review the proposal.

Our favorite of these petitions this month has to be from Colorado man “John D" who, as we reported last week, wants the government to secure resources and funding to begin the construction of a Death Star by 2016.

Yesterday we learned that Michael Arndt had written a treatment for the upcoming 'Star Wars' sequel, currently called 'Episode 7,' but that didn't seem a confirmation that he had the job. Today it looks like his work has been approved and he's the first writer to take a crack at a new 'Star Wars' film.

George Lucas Is Giving His ‘Star Wars’ Money to Education

It's easy to poke fun at George Lucas. He directed the prequel trilogy after all, and refuses to acknowledge the original cuts of the first three 'Star Wars' movies. But when Lucas does good, that's no joke. And today word broke that Lucas will be giving the majority of the money he got for selling Lucasfilm to educational philanthropy.

‘Star Wars Episode 7′ Is Coming – Who Should Be Cast?

As you have surely heard, Disney bought Lucasfilm yesterday and promptly announced there would be three more Star Wars movies, with 'Episode VII' coming out in 2015.

The latest trilogy is going to pick up where 'Return of The Jedi' left off, meaning Luke, Han and Leia will all (presumably) be back. Of course the actors who played those roles will be 32 years older than they were when 'Return of the Jedi' came out so we don't think they will be cast again, outside of possible flashforward scenes.

Cat Sings ‘Star Wars’ Theme, Conquers Internet

Jabba the Hutt Cupcake Is the Treat You’re Looking For [IMAGE]

Jabba the Hutt of ‘Star Wars’ fame may be a ruthless gangster and crime lord feared in the Outer Rim, but he’s somehow less menacing when done up in fondant icing. Still, we don’t like the way this Jabba cupcake is looking at us. Eat at your own peril.

Just-Released ‘Empire Strikes Back’ Deleted Scene Reveals Extended Sparring Between Han and Leia [VIDEO]

George Lucas is famous — or should we say infamous — for tinkering with the original ‘Star Wars‘ movie trilogy. For example, he’s “updated” them with CGI technology that was unavailable at the time they were originally shot, much to the dismay of movie purists the world over who felt they were perfect as-is.

But when the umpteenth re-release of the films, ‘Star Wars: The Complete Saga,’ comes out in Blu-ray on September 16, fans will get to see what Lucas didn’t include, such as this deleted scene between Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) from ‘The Empire Strikes Back.’
