Mirror has posted some leaked images of classic trilogy Stormtroopers from the set of the upcoming Star Wars Anthology film: Rogue One.  The pictures are simply some actors dressed as Stormtroopers chilling out at various, somewhat generic, sets.  In any event the pictures are something to check out, as it certainly builds excitement for the release of Rogue One in 2016. 

Review: Imperial Justice by Jason Fry

Review: Servants of the Empire: Imperial Justice by Jason Fry (or, The Expert Thumb Twiddler Finally Does Something)

I wish for it to be acknowledged that I am currently quite sick *coughs pointedly*. But I’m still here. This isn’t me being melodramatic* or wanting to illicit sympathy**. I say it because I want to convey how much I enjoyed Imperial Justice, the third book in the Servants of the Empire series by Jason Fry and published by Egmont, and how I wanted to write this review and convey my enthusiasm for it as quickly as possible and totally not because I very well might die soon***.

*Okay, maybe a little bit. I have been wandering around the house muttering in my deepest voice ‘I am vengeance. I am the night. I am Batman’, after all.

**Though a little wouldn’t hurt, is all I’m saying.

Jedi News has an article from an EW report, stating that Abrams broke his L4 while trying to help Ford out from under the door that broke his leg.
  Luckily is wasn’t debilitating, as Abrams only found out what was causing him pain when he went to the doctor’s office a few days later. 

J.J. himself made the following comment on the incident:

The guy is like a real-life superhero. He should have the Marvel logo above his name,” Abrams said, before recalling what happened when the actor broke his leg on the Force Awakens set last year.

“He’s down there and he’s toughing it out. He’s a super human being. He’s literally lying there making jokes,” Abrams said. “This door had gone down, and I’m trying to help lift it up – because that’s the kind of guy I am. I’m trying to lift up this door and I feel this pop in my back. I’m like ‘Uh, that’s weird.’”

Cut to a couple of days later, and Abrams found himself at a doctor’s office. “He goes, ‘Oh you have a broken back,’” Abrams said. “I broke my L4 trying to lift this door.”
