    For many filmmakers, Ray Harryhausen is one of the most important names in the movie business. He was a pioneer of stop-motion special effects and holds a special place of inspiration in the history of Star Wars. He’s famous for a lot of films, but perhaps the most important would be 1958s The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, the first film using stop-motion special effects to be shot in full color. I knew this movie was important to the history of cinema, but it wasn’t until an interview I did with Phil Tippett on Full of Sith that I realized its importance to Star Wars. This was the film that…

    Memorial Day weekend 1987, Starlog Magazine held the first-ever Star Wars Convention for it’s 10th Anniversary. The official title was, “Starlog Salutes Star Wars–A 10th Anniversary Tribute to George Lucas and the Galaxy Far, Far Away Which He Created!” Personally, I prefer my title – Star Wars Celebration 0.

    One our favorite traditions in the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club is to honor our allies and friends with their very own piece of Mandalorian armor, normally in the form of a helmet. Dave Filoni, Katie Sackhoff, Simon Pegg, Vanessa Marshall, and Tiya Sircar are just a few of the individuals we’ve been able to thank this way over the years. There’s a feeling of “awesomness” you get when you’re wearing a Mandalorian helmet, plus they work great for walking around conventions “incognito” (as Simon Pegg learned at San Diego ComicCon in 2013). Simon Pegg (voice of Dengar, Star Wars:…

This set off a sequence of developments that looks to keep the Star Wars universe entertaining us for many decades to come. This was not the first interaction between The Walt Disney Company and Mr Lucas, however. Looking back, there have been a few significant projects including a couple of Star Tours park ride iterations, and prior to that, the production of Captain EO in 1986. Lucas' love for Disney, however, harks right back to 1955, when a young and impressionable…

I’m currently lamenting the premature demise of my Blu-Ray player and researching a replacement. It has to have all the right toys. So I was thinking about technology and the way that popular sci-fi, such as Star Trek, has predicted, or could it be that it has inspired the development of new technologies. So I decided to compile a list of some of the tech that Star Trek has depicted in the past that now exists. 1. Sliding doors! It’s THE classic example. When Star Trek first…

    In 1991, Kevin J Anderson began a prologue – a “prequel”, if you will – to the established Star Wars universe. What happened would change the world forever – but for better, or worse? Tales of the Jedi: Ulic Qel-Droma and the Beastriders of Onderon, shares a special place in my heart with Heir to the Empire and A New Hope. I experienced all of these in my youth, and they engendered a deep love of Star Wars in me, as well as an idea of just how expansive the idea of Star Wars was. Each was the start of a grand saga, and in the case of two of them (you can guess which two), it would…
