These little droids could cause a lot of trouble.

Disney recently showed off bipedal droids that look exactly like something you’d see in a Star Wars movie, and now Disney’s Imagineers are testing the droids at Disneyland, as reported by Disneyland News Today. I love them!!

Star Wars jizz is now called jatz.

In a galaxy far, far, away, jazz doesn’t exist. Instead, when you want to really blow on that horn you’re jizzing or jatzing. As AVClub recently noted, both words have technically been used to describe the musical stylings of the Star Wars universe over the years, with jizz gaining in popularity for extremely obvious reasons.

But in a recent short story collection based around Return of the Jedi characters, Max Rebo, the blue alien front man for the band that plays at Jabba the Hutt’s palace thinks back to other times he’s performed “jatz standards”. That means jatz is the official Disney-approved name for the music.

Wookiepedia, meanwhile, continues to embrace jizz.

Ahsoka touches down in Fortnite.

As promised when the new season launched, Star Wars heroine Ahsoka is now available in Fortnite (so long as you purchased the current battle pass). She has an adorable pet for back bling and her arrival also means the return of lightsabers to the battle royale island. The timing is also good: the penultimate episode of Ahsoka’s Disney Plus series is streaming tonight.


“Lock S-foils in attack position.”

Imagine owning Red Leader’s X-Wing. Not a starfighter, of course, but the actual miniature built and filmed by ILM for 1977’s Star Wars — with servo-controlled wings that really do swing into attack position.

The hero model was thought lost for 40+ years, but it’s now up for auction starting at $400K. It’s joined by “the most complete and best condition” Stormtrooper armor, an original Wah Chang Star Trek TOS tricorder, “one of only two hero Type-2 Phasers known to exist,” and Starfleet uniforms worn by Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Scotty, and more.

Ahsoka brings mystery back to Star Wars

The first two episodes are a great start for the latest Disney Plus expansion of a galaxy far, far away.

Now this is podracing!

Jabba’s beats to relax / study to.

When this “Nighttime at Jabba’s Palace” lo-fi soundtrack was shared in Slack, I made fun of it. But I’ve been listening to it for the past 30 minutes — it’s actually pretty good?

Podracers not included.

If you’re already done with that other Star Wars game, the galaxy far, far away has once again descended on Fortnite. That includes gameplay features like the return of lightsabers and Force abilities, as well as the prerequisite new characters to buy like Anakin, Padme, and Darth Maul. You can get all the details right here.

Disney’s putting all 12 of Andor’s scripts online.
