Link - by Avi Abrams

...It Rocks!

Possibly the most awesome painting ever made for Star Wars franchise, this poster never fails to make us wish we were present at this concert (with preferably music by Jeff Lynne from "Electric Light Orchestra", in addition to classic John Williams themes) -

Revisionist Look at the Classic Film

Lets look again at the film that started it all "Star Wars IV: A New Hope" - and reconsider the story in the light of films I-III. Keith Martin wrote the article, detailing his discoveries of hidden events and agendas that must've taken place in that first film (for narrative thread and logic to hold together) - but were left out for various (mostly clandestine) reasons.

Here is the link. Read the article and discover, for example that:

- Chewbacca is the ultimate undercover agent and a deep thinker.
- Han Solo is not all that daring and independent.
- Millennium Falcon is a hot custom job, "007"-like.
- Pretty much everything that happened on Tatooine was prearranged;
and most surprisingly, that R2D2 is "The Mastermind", the Brain behind it all.

If this article was surprising, there is nothing surprising about this comparison between Star Wars and Harry Potter:

and if you had an opportunity to improve the plot, you'd probably put in this episode:

If Salvador Dali was among art directors, we could've had "Temptation of Jedi":

Also, here is a surprise: in the original designs for "Star Wars" artist Ralph MacQuarrie painted Luke as a girl!. Quite a concept, eh?

Classic Luke and Leia image that still retains the mystery and romance of the spaceways:

I found this great clip on jokes.m3Rlin.org. It's a great claymation movie about Darth Vader and the Emperor: http://jokes.m3rlin.org/funny/darth-vader-calls-the-emperor-claymation . I laughed so hard!!!

I'd love to see an illustration of Darth and ObiWan dueling (across the room, left) while Luke and Leia watch (foreground, right) but done as and in the style of a pulp magazine cover of the 1930s.

(As if Amazing Stories printed Star Wars in the 1930s.)

The United States Postal Service unveiled their collection of 15 new 41-cent Star Wars postage stamps and the images were: Anakin Skywalker; Chewbacca; Darth Vader were just amazing.

It’s an awesome blog; paintings of Star Wars are admirable. In one of the image of Luke and Leia it retains the mystery and romance of the space ways. I am a great fan of the film "Star Wars IV: A New Hope".
