Samuel L. Jackson on the Hilarious Origins of His Purple Lightsaber in ‘Star Wars’
For decades, 'Star Wars' fans were secure in the knowledge that lightsabers came in only three colors: red for evil, green for good and blue for Obi-Wan Kenobi. But then, when the new trilogy of prequels was released between 1999 and 2005, Samuel L. Jackson joined the franchise as Jedi warrior Mace Windu and broke the rules by sporting a purple weapon.

Unused ‘Star Wars’ Script From George Lucas to Be Adapted Into New Comic Series
It's the kind of thing that sounds like an April Fool's Day prank, but for 'Star Wars' fans it will be an exploration of one of the greatest "What if?" scenarios of all time. Dark Horse Comics has announced that it is adapting George Lucas' original 'Star Wars' treatment into a comic miniseries.

Even during the best of times, George Lucas has never been known as an "actor's director." Watch some behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the original 'Star Wars' trilogy and you'll see the actors straining for a reaction or direction from the man. Spielberg he is not. If you want verbal proof of Lucas' indifference (for lack of a better word) to the acting craft, 'Star Wars: Ep

George Lucas will certainly do nicely!

No 'Star Wars: Episode 7' for George Lucas! In case you haven't heard (yeah right), Lucas recently sold his Lucasfilm empire to Disney for a meager $4 billion, giving the future of 'Star Wars' over to the Mouse House and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. A stunning development that immediately reinvigorated the 'Star Wars' brand and turned the entire fanboy focus toward the beloved franchise o
