Every Star Wars fan has dreamed of opening a door with the Throne Room theme marking his or her entrance. The award ceremony at the end of Episode IV is chill-bump inducing thanks to John Williams score! But in real life, we don’t get theme songs, and as this video demonstrates, real life can be a…
Previously, J.J. Abrams introduced us to a new creature in the Star Wars universe while auctioning off a chance to be in the seventh installment of the series for charity. He’s back again with Star Wars: Force for Change and this time we get to see a new yet familiar star ship.

This past weekend Peter Mayhew, who portrayed Chewbacca in the original Star Wars trilogy (and some other movie called “Revenge of the Sith”), tweeted out a series of photos that he took…
And the first picture is naturally a selfie… To be totally nerdy about it, it’s technically a picture someone took of Darth Vader taking a selfie, but I’m not going to call the big guy out on it. I’m a fan of breathing, after all. (via Instagram)
