Now You Can Get Hitched In Padmé’s Gown

September 2, 2018

Wasn’t Padmé’s ’20s-inspired wedding dress awesome? Wouldn’t you like to have one on your big day instead of one of those extremely expensive stripper gowns you see on “Say Yes To The Dress?”  Well, your wish is about to come true:

It follows Padme’s wedding look: a gown with the intricate design down front that is carefully set by hand, a flowing bell train in the back, followed by an overlay on top made from a gorgeous regal lace, a capelet wrapping the shoulders, and a veil decorated with blossoms and handsewn beaded flowers.

H/T Naboo News;

SyFy Wire posted “Five Times Solo:  A Star Wars Story Makes The Prequels Matter,” which covers some of the prequel references the film carries.  Spoilers in the link, of course.

Avengers: Infinity War & TPM

May 13, 2018

(H/T Naboo News.)

Bryan Young posted on SyFy Wire a piece on the similarities between the latest Avengers flick “Infinity War” and TPM.  I just saw the movie myself before posting this and yeah, some parts of the film will look very familiar, just with 2018 effects.  I’m not quoting from the article because duh, spoilers for this film and “Black Panther,” but if you have seen the movie, go check it out.

 

New Padmé Amidala Forces Of Destiny

This dropped on Friday with a bunch of new episodes from all eras of the saga (including one with Ahsoka in the “Rebels” era).  Here Padmé is finally on her own, doing Queen stuff and taking out poachers:

Anakin Skywalker Inspired Actor-Singer

April 26, 2018

Yahoo via Naboo News:

Anyone familiar with Jackson’s work on the popular sitcom Grown-ish,or with his social media presence knows he takes some pride in his rare choice of hairstyle. In fact, it’s not a leap to say he has become the country’s foremost proponent of the look.

“I love it, I love the position I’ve been handed as rat-tail senator. It means a lot to me,” Jackson said. “And to the community. I’ve had many a kid come up to me and say, ‘Hey, I got a rat-tail because of you.’ And it just makes my heart warm. It grows it two times.”

Jackson credits his adoption of the ‘tail to one specific movie character: Anakin Skywalker, as played by Hayden Christensen in the Star Wars prequels, Attack of the Clones (2002) and Revenge of the Sith (2005).

“Before I put out my album Rough Drafts, Pt. 1 that just came out, and I was very frustrated musically,” he said. “I watched Star Wars [Episodes I-III] with Anakin, and I was like, ‘I feel like him.’ I felt like I was good, and I could write all my songs and sing better than most guys. … But nobody was giving me a shot, and I couldn’t go, and nobody was believing in my vision.

“I felt like Anakin! Am I good? Am I  bad? And he had a tail, and it kept getting longer the whole time — till he cut it off before he became Darth Vader.”

As a bonus, here’s the track:

Uh, Trevor, do you realize Anakin is Leia’s father ;)?

Skating To Star Wars Music

February 15, 2018

Chinese Olympic skaters Yu Xiaoyu and Zhang Hao brought a little saga magic to their routine Wednesday night.  I don’t think they won or got the top scores but their taste in music gets a 10 from us.

They’ve skated to Star Wars themes before.

 

Disney’s Galaxy Edge To Include Toydarian Street Market

February 12, 2018

Hmm, interesting.  From Travel Weekly:

At the Galaxy’s Edge lands in Orlando and Anaheim, guests will be able to explore a street market run by a Toydarian, a character introduced in “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.” Among his wares will be handcrafted toys made by local artisans.

I guess that means Republic credits won’t be accepted and waving your hand around like a Jedi won’t get you any discounts.
 

Song: Padmé’s Message

February 12, 2018

Sacha Feldberg wrote her own song about Anakin and Padmé’s love (forwarded to me by her dad Greg) and I have to say, it’s pretty good!  Check it out:
