LEGO, Lucasfilm, and Disney XD are teaming up for an all new animated LEGO Star Wars Series called LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures.

The new adventure comedy series will debut this summer on Disney XD and is set between Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back and
Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. The show is supposed to include new heroes and villains and familiar Star Wars characters. If I had to guess, it’s canon, but no official word yet.

Check out full poster and more details on the show in the press release below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been out for a good, long while now—so it’s time to fix everything with a How It Should Have Ended video. As you’ll see below, the team at HISHE had lots of ideas.

Rey is frustratingly absent from the Star Wars Little Golden Book line. What a shocker.

Fortunately, the illustrator known as Joebot has swooped in with the perfect solution. It can only be purchased as a print, but here’s hoping that the powers that be get their sh*t together with something similar in the near future.

Can you imagine if Star Wars had come from the mind of Studio Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki rather than the questionable brain of George “Ewoks” Lucas? Artist Lap Pun Cheung has, and he’s created a few pieces to share his idea of what a Miyazaki-directed Star Wars might’ve looked like.

These three pieces depict scenes from each of the three trilogies – the Duel of the Fates from The Phantom Menace, an entirely Ghibli-fied Darth Vader and Stormtrooper from A New Hope, and Han and Chewie telling an enthusiastic Rey and Finn about the Force in The Force Awakens.

Check out the rest of the pieces below.

So here’s something South Korean artist Kim Jung Gi did – he combined elements of the Star Wars movies with aspects of feudal Japan.

This is, of course, an inspired combination. As you may know, Star Wars was in part inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s samurai movies, so mashing the two together is something of a no brainer. What’s more impressive, though, is the talent that made it happen.

See, Kim studied art at Dong-Eui University in Busan before serving two years in the South Korean army. Between those two disciplines he developed a very keen eye and a knack for memorization—skills he put to use in October when he spent three hours drawing this beautiful blending of worlds.

Kim’s work is absolutely stunning. And, if you continue on, you can watch the video of him drawing this amazing piece from memory.

Warning: Spoilers follow.

Let’s all take a moment to give thanks to Redditor _BindersFullOfWomen_ for this Star Wars family photo that’s been making the rounds.

Stabs you right in the heart, doesn’t it?

Photoshop is like the Force; it’s powerful on it’s own, but the true darkness or light is determined by the user.

A few variations have popped up. I put my personal favorite after the break.

Stormtroopers! Iconic. Gundam! Also iconic. What happens when you smash ’em together? Until this week, we had no idea. Fortunately, Korean Gundam enthusiast Kunho Noh has stepped in to answer this pressing question by modifying Star Wars figures with badass Gundam armor.

Check out additional pics and videos of his creations below.

This trailer proves that inserting any franchise into The Force Awakens trailer template makes it the must-see movie of the year.

YouTuber VG934 writes:

Being the huge Doctor Who and Star Wars fan that I am, how could I resist the chance to bring these two massive franchises together? Well sort of bring them together, let’s call it Who Wars.

Some may call me late to the party but I must remind you that a Wizard is never late, nor is he early – he arrives precisely when he means to. Alas, I’m no Wizard but the same principle applies.

I think you’re right on time, VG934. Now go make me a full length version.

Check out the trailer below.

Daisy Ridley may have done some of her own stunts in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but Chloe Bruce was there when serious skills were needed.

Let’s just say she kicks ass with a staff.

She’s also doubled for Zoe Saldana in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jaimie Alexander in Thor: The Dark World. Plus, she’s a World Kickboxing Champion.

Check out the video below to see her in action.
