Top 5 Jedi/Sith from Star Wars

Top 5 Jedi/Sith from Star Wars

We haven’t had a list-type post for quite some time now, so I felt like doing one. I was originally going to title this as Top 5 Characters, but then my personal bias reared its ugly head and I ended up with nothing but force users on the list, so instead of trying to squeeze in non-force sensitives just to make the list well-rounded, I just went with a jedi/sith-oriented list (that I liked. I should have added that one.)

The Clone Wars Trailer: Escape from Kadavo

The Clone Wars: Escape from Kadavo

Star Wars: The Clone Wars returns with new episodes this week, with Friday’s episode serving as the epic conclusion to an exciting three-part story arc. Entitled “Escape from Kadavo”, the episode follows Anakin Skywalker as he tries his best to convince the Zygerrian Queen that she is nothing but a slave and a disposable pawn in an evil Separatist plot. General Kenobi, on the other hand, is stuck in the slave camps of Kadavo, a bleak predicament that is about to cross the line that separates Bad from Worse.

Animated Star Wars Comedy from Robot Chicken Creators in the Works

According to a recent report by Shadowlocked, cult favorite co-creator of the Robot Chicken series and former Buffy cast member Seth Green has had two Star Wars comedic spin offs commissioned by Adult Swim and endorsed by George Lucas (!!!) himself. And no, we’re not talking about the Robot Chicken: Star Wars special – the upcoming spin off is a 40 minute long episode to be shown in its own right and is set on the same (fictional) reality where the canon Star Wars films happened.

Darth Maul returns in Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Darth Maul returns in Star Wars: The Clone Wars

Cartoon Network has let it be known: Darth Maul is on his way back. The Sith Lord from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace began as the apprentice to Darth Sidious. But his demonic red face, horned head, and double-bladed lightsaber have kept the character incredibly powerful: even after his apparent death in the first film, at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi. But what if he wasn’t dead? What if Darth Maul somehow survived? This is the premise being explored later this season on Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars – and frankly, we can’t wait to find out what happens!

Singin with the Jetsons and Rockin with Judy Jetson on Warner Archive DVD

Singin with the Jetsons and Rockin with Judy Jetson on Warner Archive DVD

Sky Rocker is a big name in the music industry. Or, at least, he will be thousands of years from now when we live in the era of The Jetsons. And Sky Rocker is clearly not meant to be confused with Skywalker – especially since both Anakin and Luke are from a “long time ago.” But in the future, Sky is all the rage, and Judy Jetson couldn’t be a bigger fan. When she and he friends attend his show, Judy hopes to impress Sky with a new song she wrote — much to her father’s anger! Throw in an evil space queen named Felonia Funk (sounds like one of the Misfits!) and her goons Quark and Quasar, and you got yourselves a great little adventure. Thanks to Warner Bros. and Warner Archive, the whole tale, Rockin’ with Judy Jetson, will soon be available on DVD, so you can relive the fun again and again.
