Lots of news this week. Aside from some of the big news like the Star Wars Episode VII director or the new Darth Maul book by Joe Schreiber (with an early 2014 release), there’s been some other noteworthy headlines.
First up, Star Wars Celebration Europe tickets have gone on sale. If you haven’t bought yours yet (and if you can go), you can get them here on the official site.
The animated short LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out will be out on DVD on March 26 and will include a LEGO mini-figure. (via starwars.com)
In interview news, Star Wars Report interviewed Stephen Stanton covering his work as Colonel Meebur Gascon in the recent droid arc in The Clone Wars. Club Jade interviewed fellow voice actor James Arnold Taylor. And Amazing Stories posted an interview with Kevin J. Anderson covering his new sequel to The Saga of the Seven Suns, The Dark Between the Stars.
In completely unrelated news, comic writer Tom Taylor is investing his billions in the construction of doomsday devices. While he directly disavowed the rumor, he simultaneously threatened to destroy the neighborhoods of anyone who opposes him. We’re unsure how far along he is in the construction of such weapons of mass destruction, but we’ll keep you posted.
