Not that long ago in our own galaxy, a guy named Joey Lemberg recreated TPM with action figures and home-made sets. Originally shot on VHS, it’s been uploaded on YouTube for all to enjoy. H/T Matthew Krizanits:

TPM was released 14 years ago today, May 19, 1999.
ROTS was released 8 years ago today, May 19, 2005.
Rebel Force Radio‘s Feb. 15 show featured an interview with TPM concept artist/creature designer Terryl Whitlatch, whose work still influences the saga.
I Am Shark is releasing the original TPM soundtrack on vinyl. The LP (long-playing record…those are those flat, black round things that used to play music for you kids out there) features the soundtrack originally released in 1999. Choose from different colors for $21.99 each or $100 for all of them. The LP is on pre-order and is set to ship in early March.
I Am Shark plans on releasing AOTC’s and ROTS’s soundtracks on LP too!

Teresa at Jedi News posted why Darth Maul is one of her favorite Star Wars characters.
I haven’t seen “The Hobbit” yet but apparently one of the dwarves from the flick once played a fighter pilot lurking in the background in TPM. The problem is actor Richard Armitage has a hard time picking himself out in the movie.
Hollywood.com has more.
Update: My friend Derek sent a link to this blog post on Armitage’s many past appearances, including TPM and some anecdotes from the set (hint: he too used to confuse Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman).
My copy of “Star Wars: A Galactic Pop-Up Adventure” arrived today; I’d pre-ordered it from Amazon. If you enjoyed the last Star Wars pop-up book by Matthew Reinhart, you’ll love this one too, especially since it focuses on the prequels!
I haven’t yet looked at it in great detail but various characters, ships, locations, and creatures appear in one form or another. The reek and acklay, pod racers, the Jedi starfighters from ROTS, General Grievous, etc. make up most of the big pop-up pieces but the show stopper is the Vaderkin with a lightsaber that ignites blue then turns red. If you open the corner with Obi-Wan and Anakin, it looks like they are dueling each other pop-up style!
Definitely a must-buy!
This cute little cartoon commemorated the release of TPM 3D. Wish I found it months ago but it’s still adorable. The artist plans on doing one for each 3D re-release!
Surprisingly, last night’s showing at Celebration of TPM was in 3D! Fans were given exclusive 3D glasses to watch the flick.
Apparently, AOTC was still in 2D but tomorrow is the Future of Star Wars In 3D panel…
