Via The Hollywood Reporter, later this year we will get a five episode series called LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales. The 22 minute episodes will air on Disney XD and will present a new take on the six films as seen through the eyes of R2-D2 and C-3PO. Sounds like a pretty cool idea and if Michael Price is onboard for these, then we’ll certainly be in for some good entertainment.

Newly announced today: Kathleen Kennedy and J.J. Abrams will be at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim for a Thursday morning kick off on April 16th. They’ve also revealed previews of all the art prints by the featured artists which you can check out here. Plus there’s some new collecting panels. I have to admit, I’m tempted to check out the one on Ewok collectibles.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

We’re three months from this.

I was thinking about the book today and trying to articulate the way that I thought about Vader throughout the writing. In the end, I think I had two touchstones.

First (and I wrote this in all-caps at the top of the blank page when I first starting writing the book): VADER IS ALWAYS MENACING! ALWAYS!

Second, I kept in mind that Vader is a monster. Perhaps an understandable monster, but a monster nevertheless.

Anyway, can’t wait for this to hit so you can read it for yourselves.

For those heading to Star Wars Celebration Anaheim this April, you can look forward to a chance to see the premiere of Revenge of the Sith in 3D.

At Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, fans can have the first chance to see Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith in 3D. As part of the evening’s screenings featuring all the Star Wars saga movies, Revenge of the Sith will be among the 3D presentations that include The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. Attack of the Clones was screened at Celebration Europe in 2013, but has been shown only very exclusively since.

Seeing all six released movies of the Star Wars saga, three of them in 3D, is just one of hundreds of reasons to attend the four-day festival rich with entertainment, first looks, interactive events, celebrities, panels, and more.
