Star Wars: Princess Leia #1 cover art by Terry Dodson
I’m in love with this cover. Totally kickass.  And how great will it be to have a series dealing with Leia’s reaction to the loss of Alderaan?  That’s something the EU never fully explored.  I’m really looking forward to this. 

AND it’s going to be written by Mark Waid and illustrated by Terry Dodson, which is a pretty fantastic creative team if you ask me.

"If the new movies do contradict my books in some way, I can probably come up with some hand-waving story that will explain the apparent discrepancy. If there’s one thing we authors are good at, it’s hand-waving."

If Mara Jade will be in the new Star Wars films, I vote Julianne Moore to portray her!
She’s an amazing actress, and I could totally see her as the badass Mara Jade-Skywalker.

Nice to see an age-appropriate(ish) Mara fancast! I could see her being really good in the role. I also think Sigourney Weaver would work well.

“But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!”

"I get ribbed for that line because it was so whiny. And I remember at the time, I had to make it as juvenile as possible so that I can show how Luke matures later. So it should be embarrassing. It should be whiny and childish. But boy, has it come back to haunt me. I don’t think I ever got the chance to finally pick them up." - Mark Hamill


#i’ve argued that since forever, #'nah my favourite character is lu-', #'BUT POWER CONVERTERS', #YES, #THAT’S PART OF WHY I LIKE HIM, #THAT WHINY LITTLE KID MARCHES INTO A CRIME LORD’S PALACE AND WRECKS EVERYTHING, #AND SAVES HIS FATHER’S SOUL, #WHAT HAVE YOU DONE LATELY (via anghraine)

I think sometimes people don’t get that with Luke, the whole point is character development. He starts out as a kid who has a good heart, but he’s also naive, impulsive, judgmental, and yes, quite whiny sometimes. In other words, you know, like a normal teenager. Luke and Leia are meant to be just 19 in the first movie. And you don’t really see it as much with Leia because she’s been raised as royalty and she’s been a politician practically her whole life, and you get the impression that she grew up pretty fast. But Luke’s a different matter entirely. Luke is just some farm kid who doesn’t have anything more important on his mind in the first movie than wanting to leave his backwater planet and go have some fun. But the thing is, he grows out of it. He learns from his mistakes, and he learns to control his temper and think before he acts and maybe not make snap judgments the minute he looks at someone (or something - remember that time he called the Millenium Falcon a ‘piece of junk’?) And he grows out of the whininess simply because by the end of the trilogy he’s got way more important things on his mind. The original trilogy is literally about Luke’s coming-of-age story. He’s a strikingly different character at the end of RotJ than he was at the beginning of the story, and that’s exactly the point.

No one geeks like Colbert
No one freaks like Colbert
No one references shows of the week like Colbert

omfg, it’s just as good as that one time someone took a picture of “Spac from Star Wars”

BUT, as any Star Wars Expanded Universe fan can tell you, the Force Meld, aka the Jedi Meld, is an actual thing, and it’s exactly what it sounds like - two or more Jedi joining their minds together through the Force. “Jedi mind meld” would be an entirely accurate term for this.

And, in fact, as has been pointed out, while it was probably unintentional it was actually a more appropriate metaphor for Obama to use.

In conclusion:

1) Obama is an EU fan until proven otherwise, and

2) Your move, Colbert ;-)

Anonymous asked:

so why is Luke your favorite character? I like him but all of my friends say he's whiny and doesn't have much talent

skywalkerss:

I could write an essay about this but I’ll keep it short (ish?)

Luke is my favorite character because he’s one of the most purest/innocent, selfless, and compassionate characters ever.  Right from the start, he’s willing to risk his life to save others and not only aspires to do so - but accomplishes the job :D  He’s not arrogant about it either and remains the simple farm boy from Tatooine that we all love :)

He has an amazing ability to forgive his father despite everything he’s done, not only to luke, but to the whole galaxy - because luke just know’s that Anakin is not completely gone.  That kind of faith is just ugh <333

The only time people can say he’s “whiny” is I guess in the beginning of ANH when he wants to get off Tatooine, but he’s been wanting to leave there for a long time and he’s a teenager, so don’t tell me teens aren’t whiny from time to time.

He gets along well with like everyone and is the type of person who would be willing to help anyone/thinks of others before himself (◡‿◡✿)

not much talent??  He basically becomes a worthy opponent of Darth Vader w/in a couple years of little jedi training and he’s a good pilot too shit.

look at him go
