Star Wars.com Blog Gives Web Traffic To Anti-PT Site

June 25, 2011

The Official Star Wars.com blog promoted a dopey (and not real funny) feature on a site called Dorkly.com that seems harmless enough. But Dorkly also featured a similar list called “7 Quotes That Could Have Saved The Star Wars Prequels,” which as you can imagine weren’t real complimentary to the films or to Lucas. While the blog didn’t link to that (or at least not yet), aren’t they aware of it? If so, why promote a site that disparages half the saga and the man who signs their paychecks.

You can’t convince me that Lucasfilm isn’t its own worst enemy.

New Darth Maul Book Info

June 15, 2011

Scholastic is going to publish a book called The Wrath Of Darth Maul by Ryder Windham this December. This is a brand-new book that will likely be very similar to Windham’s other kids’ hardcover books about various Star Wars characters. No word on whether it will mesh with Jude Watson’s 2000 softcover book about Maulsy’s early life or not.
