This is truly some great news from the Holywood Reporter. One wonders what character she may be voicing. I have to think it’s a significant role or they would have been less secretive. Hopefully, we’ll get to see Ms. Gellar at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim.

More LEGO. More Star Wars. More LEGO Star Wars! It’s pretty awesome to hear that the LEGO Star Wars specials are going to continue onto Disney XD. And their not just specials, it looks like this will be a 5 part mini-series.

But this is not Star Wars in 22 minutes. The conceit is that the movies are being retold through the eyes of robots C-3PO and R2-D2 in a brand new story.

Set after the Rebel Alliance victory on Endor seen at the end of Return of the Jedi, the droids are regaling the assembled of their adventures that led them to their present situation.  An accidental kidnapping leads to a new adventure that progresses to the re-telling of the saga in the chronological order, starting from The Phantom MenacetoReturn of the Jedi.

Details of who is directing or writing the episodes were not revealed.

Max Rebo Band Once Again Snubbed – You Won’t Believe Why! (Monday Funnies)

The inductees for this year’s Jizz-Wailer Hall of Fame were announced today, and for the fifth year in a row The Max Rebo Band was not on the ballot. There have been many rumors for the reason The Max Rebo Band hasn’t been considered, but most presume that it was due to the controversy back when Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes were inducted that led to Sy Snootles making the comments: “How are we supposed to even know they are the original members? All Bith look the same!”  Shortly after, Snootles issued an apology claiming that she “was just angry the Modal Nodes were inducted first.”  However it seemed to do little to calm the outrage. D’an responded to the statements saying that it “…felt clinical and insincere. The Bith people have offered a lot to this galaxy and it really hurts to be demeaned like that by a peer.”

What's a Bith?

It’s no secret that the two bands have had an ongoing feud since before the creation of the Max Rebo Band, however both parties have always refused to elaborate on the issue. With 5 years passing since the controversial remarks, The Max Rebo Band have done little to rebuild their reputation with their one-time audience.  Droopy McCool has become a recluse and hasn’t been seen in almost two years.  Max Rebo has had multiple arrests, the most recent  due to an altercation with a restaurant owner attempting to walk out on a tab of over 400 druggats. Snootles has also continued on a destructive downward spiral. Rumors of late night partying, driving a speeder under the influence, and altercations with law enforcement have kept her in the tabloids.  She is expected to see a judge this week regarding her arrest a few months ago where she was discovered by local authorities carrying over 1 kilogram of the spice known as Carsunum.

Sy Snootles -Sy no More

It’s been reported that she’s only done 37 of her 200 mandated community service hours, and unlikely to catch up before her hearing. If she is imprisoned it is unlikely that the Rebo Band will be considered for next year’s ballot either, as the Jizz Wailer Hall of Fame Foundation has historically rejected bands in the past due to similar behavior that they felt reflected poorly on the Jizz community. The Foundation holds contributions to the music community very highly in their considerations for nominees, and it’s truly a shame that this once great band have let their egos get in the way of such recognition.  It certainly seems that both The Max Rebo Band and The Jizz-Wailer Hall of Fame are lesser for it. There have been rumors of Teemo the Hutt inquiring about the Rebo band for residency in Teemo’s palace. If the Rebo band were to come to terms, this could be a great first step toward rebuilding their reputation and opening considerations for future Hall of Fame induction.  Currently no terms have been accepted by the Rebo band and we can only speculate that this is due to the unknown location of Droopy McCool.
