After 24 weeks and 168 days in theaters, Star Wars: The Force Awakens ended its out of this galaxy run in the US on June 2nd. According to Box Office Mojo the 7th movie in the franchise made $936,662,225 in America alone, making it the #1 grossing movie domestically. Personally, I wished they would’ve kept it in theaters long enough to reach the $10 billion mark. There are still people out there who haven’t seen it. I know it sounds weird, but I am one of them.
Yesterday, I posted a photo of Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher fighting over a huge fork, and today we found out who won. Princess Leia showed us she is the Queen of the Universe. But it was her brother Luke Skywalker who won the battle. He Tweeted, “So @carrieffisher possesses #TheFork but I managed to wrestle that #SilverSpoon from her pampered mouth!”
Proving not only have they played brother and sister for the last 40 years, they really are like brother and sister.
BTW I am assuming there were no knives involved in this scenario because in a galaxy full of lightsabers who needs a knife?
Today is the 39th anniversary of Star Wars’ release date and the movie’s two stars spent it fighting over a big fork. All to determine who the fork is stronger with, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. The answer is, it is equally strong for the lovers who turned brother and sister.
May the Fork be with you and them!
BTW I wonder if they ever thought they would still be acting in Star Wars movies 39 years after it came out. I don’t think anyone thought it on that date, but on May 26, 1977 they probably had a hint this is how they were going to spend the rest of their lives.
While most people would be excited to meet Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Hans Solo or Chewbacca, not Simon Cowell. He said, “Dreams do come true,” when he met Darth Vader. That explains so much. Now we know what made Anakin Skywalker cross over to the Dark Side. He auditioned for one of Simon Cowell’s shows and the King of Mean rejected him in his own special way.
Chewbacca Mom was on The The Late Late Show Show yesterday and James Corden got her back in a car with the infamous mask! But they weren’t alone. In galaxy far far away, also known as the backseat, sat J.J. Abrams. The legendary director gave her some tips on how to use the mask properly, so that Chewbacca’s true roar can come out. Once the two of them perfected it, it was time for the CBS host to join in. What’s better than Candace Payne laughing in the Star Wars mask while sitting in an automobile? Three people doing it at once. It’s triple the funny!
Abrams wasn’t the only surprise Corden had for her. Peter Mayhew, who is under the Wookie suit, sent her an email that he can’t wait to meet her and her whole family at a Dallas Convention in 2 weeks.
I think out of all of the talk show appearances she has done, this one has to be her favorite.
BTW is just me or do James Corden and her look like twins with and without the masks?
A father decided to surprise his 2 year old by waking him up dressed as his favorite character Darth Vader. Only thing is his son surprised dad. Rob Lopez thought that Sebastian would be scared but instead he wanted to his Anakin Skywalker to read him a story. So the dad sat down on the rocking chair and did just want Luke wanted. That’s because the force is stronger with the young Jedi!
BTW I can’t wait to see what happens when Lopez dresses up as Santa Claus for Christmas and the Easter Bunny. Sebastian will probably be scared of his dad like most kids his age.
A few weeks ago, Jeremy Renner met his childhood idol at the premiere of Captain America: Civil War in London. But he told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show yesterday that he didn’t recognize him at first. In fact, he though Luke Skywalker was a homeless man because of the beard he has grown for the franchise. When someone told him that the bearded man was Mark Hamill, he peed a little in his pants and his co-star Elizabeth Olsen cried. Then he told the Star Wars favorite, “I had you on my underwear. Your face was on my underwear.” Instead of being weirded out by it because I am sure he has heard that a million times, the two exchanged action figures.
Even though Mark Hamill is in London filming Star Wars Episode VIII, he heard about this interview. How did he react it? He Tweeted, “Once @Renner4Real realized I wasn’t #HomelessHamill he rocked! I cried meeting #ElizabethOlsen too (but didn’t pee).” Even though he has been in four of the biggest movies of all time, he is still a nice warm dude who loves his fans. Proving the Force is strong with him.
Have you been wondering what the full version of Jabba Flow from Star Wars: The Force Awakens sounds like? Well not only did Lin-Manuel Miranda and J.J. Abrams perform the song they wrote outside the backstage door of Hamilton, Lucasfilm made it available to download on iTunes.
What a wonderful present from them to us on May the Fourth Be With You. So party like you are at Maz Kanata’s castle because you know you want to.
Today is Star Wars Day aka May the Fourth Be With You. Since I am not a big Star Wars fan (the shame), it is hard for me to find the video to commemorate day.
Well, yesterday Conan delivered that video. It was time for their weekly segment of Jordan Schlansky’s Product Review and he reviewed his Darth Vader Helmet.
It is not as much of a tribute to the movie franchise as much as it is to the fans. Watch and you will see what I mean. Just don’t drink or eat anything when you watch it because you will spit it out from laughing so hard.
May the Fourth be with them.
There are some advantages to being the Prince of England, and one of them is getting a tour of the secretive set of Star Wars VIII as it films. Yesterday, Prince William and Prince Harry went to Pinewood Studios and they got to meet BB-8, Luke Skywalker and the rest of the Star Wars cast. Not only that, they got to partake is a lightsaber battle or as Kensington Palace called it, “Time for a @starwars laser battle!” I loved that, but not as much as I enjoyed seeing Prince Harry smiling from ear to ear as a he got a big Wookie hug from Chewbacca.
Seriously, isn’t it so nice to see the two Princes look as happy as little boys? Who wouldn’t if given that same opportunity?
