Suvudu posted an interview with Star Wars editor Shelly Shapiro who talks a little about the future…

What kinds of things can we look forward to in the world of Star Wars fiction?

Shelly Shapiro: We’ve got the excitement of a whole new Star Wars future unfolding as information about the new movies rolls out, and I anticipate that we will be brimming over with ideas for new fiction tying in to the new continuity both of Episodes VII, VIII, and IX, and of the standalone movies that have been announced. Not to mention the new upcoming REBELS animated series. So lots more novels, more series, more original ebooks and stories…

Dystopian Chipotle Informercial Will Stun You In A Wonderful Way

Chipotle has just raised the bar forever when it comes to ads.  Adjectives such as “amazing”, “haunting” and “beautiful” are being used to describe the food company’s ad for their free ios game, and after watching the video, I have to agree.  It is simply amazing.

In a dystopian fantasy world, all food production is controlled by fictional industrial giant Crow Foods. Scarecrows have been displaced from their traditional role of protecting food, and are now servants to the crows and their evil plans to dominate the food system. Dreaming of something better, a lone scarecrow sets out to provide an alternative to the unsustainable processed food from the factory ~ Chipotle game description

Produced by Chipotle, the film was created by Academy Award®–winning Moonbot Studios and is set to a remake of the song “Pure Imagination” from the 1971 film classic “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” Beautifully performed by Grammy Award®–winning artist Fiona Apple.
