    • Anakin joins the top 1000 US baby names
      By Andy · Posted
      According to the US Social Security Administration, the name "Anakin" has joined the top 1000 baby names. The official list of most popular baby names in the United States has been revealed, and according to the SSA "Anakin" has joined the top 1000 names. Last year, 218 newborns were recorded with the name Anakin, making this the 957th most popular boys name for 2014 in the US.  Hopefully these little Anakins won't follow in the footsteps of their namesake and turn to the dark side of the Force and terrorise the galaxy. Leia also appears on the list, as the 509th most popular girls name, and while not unique to Star Wars, Luke has remained a popular name for boys with over 10,000 entries putting it near to the top of the list at 28th place.

    • Tarkin to be digitally recreated for Rogue One?
      By Andy · Posted
      Rumors have surfaced that suggest Peter Cushing's likeness is to be digitally recreated for Star Wars: Rogue One. Peter Cushing, the acclaimed British actor who died in 1994, was cemented into Star Wars fandom when he portrayed Grand Moff Tarkin in the original 1977 Star Wars movie.  Tarkin was the commander of the first Death Star whose stern gaze and authoritative barks even seemed to have control over even Darth Vader. As if this didn't make him fearsome enough, he destroyed Alderaan along with it's billions of inhabitants just to prove a point. According to British tabloid, the Daily Mail, Cushing is set to make a comeback to Star Wars more than twenty years after his death in order to reprise his role as the Imperial governor thanks to digital visual effects.  A source told the Daily Mail that they were trawling through hours of old footage of the late actor so that they can accurately capture his likeness, right down to the way he walked.

      I couldn’t pay for classes. Even if I had financial aid, I was behind on rent, which stopped me from registering for classes. Because of that, I am not considered enrolled. Because I’m not enrolled, I can’t stay in my apartment. Just today, I got the notice to vacate. I have SIX DAYS to move. I have no money to move with, no money to find a place to live, no money to rent a storage building. No one to help me move and nowhere to move it. I’ve applied for a job (and hopefully more soon), but I can’t even pay to get my phone turned on to schedule an interview. My car has over 200,000 miles on it, and Mike says there’s something wrong with CV joint or something. I’m not sure I can make it to Atlanta. I don’t know what the ewok to do. And I’m sure I’m missing a lot else in there as well.
    • Disney confirms Star Wars theme park attractions
      By Andy · Posted
      Disney have officially confirmed that plans are under way to create Star Wars themed lands at their theme parks. CEO Bob Iger has finally put an end to months of rumor and speculation regarding Disney's plans for Star Wars theme parks by announcing that both Hollywood Studios in Orlando, and Disneyland in Anaheim will be host to fully themed Star Wars lands. The announcement was made at Disney's D23 Expo and details ambitious plans for the two new areas, which would each be over 14-acres in size. Iger explained that they aim to push the boundaries of what is possible and that these new parks will take that aim to a new level, giving fans a whole galaxy to explore. There will be two signature attractions, including a Millennium Falcon flight simulator and an epic adventure that promises to put guests in the midst of a climactic battle. While fans wait for Star Wars land to become a reality, Disney will continue to update it's attractions, with a The Force Awakens update coming to the Star Tours ride later this year, and a new attraction called the Launch Bay which will allow fans to see Star Wars props and costumes and artwork. Also, next year will see the first 'Season of the Force' at the Orlando and Anaheim parks with exclusive events, with Space Mountain becoming Hyperspace Mountain with Star Wars music, visual effects, and more. It has yet to be announced whether these additions will also be replicated at Disney's international locations.
