The force is strong with these fab mofos!
If you're a huge fan of the Star Wars franchise you probably know a huge chunk of the films were shot in the North African country of Tunisia!
It's a point of pride for many Tunisians - in fact, one of their fan clubs just dressed up as Star Wars characters and filmed a tribute video that will surely leave everyone smiling!!
Remember Pharrell's Oscar-nominated song Happy? It's the cutest, right?
Well, it just got cuter!
Ch-ch-check out Happy (We Are From Tatooine)…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
When Natalie Portman heard they were making a new Star Wars movie, she was super stoked!
Then she remembered her character was dead.
The Thor: The Dark World star told J.J. Abrams just how bummed she was that she wouldn't be on board Episode 7. She said:
Star Wars is about to get a lot more Girl-y!
The highly anticipated Disney relaunch of the sci-fi franchise may have found its villain!
Adam Driver, who plays Lena Dunham's on-again, shirt off-again love interest on HBO's Girls, is reportedly in final talks for the coveted role!
Not much is known about Adam's part, but rumor is it's a powerful Darth Vader-type character. Da doi, right?
We wonder if that means we'll see his helmet…
Lucasfilm has yet to confirm the casting, but if anyone can bring Adam from the small screen to the big, it's Star Wars 7 director (and Alias creator) J.J. Abrams!
There’s nothing quite like the hectic beauty of Fashion Week in the Big Apple!
And like every Fashion Week, this past one came with its fair share of surprises.
Lil' Kim showed off a pretty large baby bump, Victoria Beckham canceled an entire show… oh, and did you SEE that glorious streaker??
You can watch him quickly prance across the the runway, then relieve some of the top seven celeb moments from this year's NYFW in GIFs and pics …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Looks like although Loki has lived in a galaxy far, far away a long time ago, it doesn't look like he'll be traveling to a different one via lightspeed.
In a recent interview, Tom Hiddleston talked about the prospect of getting offered a role in the new and upcoming Star Wars film, and how it's not exactly a new hope:
Cue the Star Wars soundtrack!!
Because someway, somehow, Rodarte’s Fall 2014 runway at NYFW featured five out-of-this
world galaxy gowns that sported images from the George Lucas-directed franchise itself — and the Force was DEFINITELY with the outfits!
Models gravitated down the runway in glamorous garb decorated with the likes of Luke Skywalker, Yoda, C-3PO, the Death Star, and Tatooine's double moons; all fan-faves in their own right!!
Sigh. If only Cara Delevingne was there to walk the show with her
deadly toy lightsaber!! Gahh!! We can’t stop imagining the magic that could’ve been, LOLz!
Any Jedi Masters out there totally digging these looks??? Or do you think Rodarte's up to some Jedi mind tricks??
