Disney Bows to Star Wars Fan Backlash, Adds Princess Leia Toys to New Line

Originally posted 06/10/2014 12:20PM

There's a scene in The Empire Strikes Back where Princess Leia shuts up the eternally cocky Han Solo with the line, "Well, I guess you don't know anything about women yet." Although her criticism was aimed solely at the guy who put the word "smug" in smuggler, she could've been shouting it at Disney, too.

Star Wars Cast: May the Force Be with Them, Today & Always

"May the Fourth be with you."

It's been a busy week for Star Wars fans. First, the cast of the new J.J. Abrams-led installment(s) was revealed. Next, fans were either frozen with waves of warm nostalgia (or carbonite) after seeing their favorite elder cast members nearly 40 years on – or they were thrilled by the possibilities that fresh blood could bring to the franchise. Things were fraught, to say the least.

Well, we're here to prey on your heightened emotions. Whether you're a scruffy-looking nerf-herder or the proud owner of a ship that can make the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs (FYI, that's a tricky one: Both of those things refer to the same character!), you'll surely be transported to a time long, long ago by these photos of the Star Wars cast posing with their younger selves.

When it comes to Star Wars movies, separating the facts from the rumors is harder than detangling Chewbacca's back after a bath.

But this time, the rumors were true: the original Star Wars lineup – including Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford – will reprise their roles in the upcoming Episode VII.

Notoriously secretive director J.J. Abrams has finally revealed the new (and, um, old) cast, a list of names that could cause a serious disturbance in the Force … or at least on Twitter.

Star Wars fans should cherish this 2½-minute blooper reel, which gives a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into the classic film series.

The reel is a composite of takes from the original trilogy, discovered by Lucasfilm editor J.W. Rinzler while he was searching through the film archives in preparation for a new making-of collection, Wired reports. It was then screened at San Diego Comic-Con this summer.

Carrie Fisher Describes Her Bipolar Crisis

Carrie Fisher Describes Her Bipolar Crisis

On Feb. 11, two days before Carrie Fisher boarded ship as a headliner for a gay cruise in the Caribbean, she had a nightmare: An armed militia lay in wait on the boat, and in the dream she warned her assistant, "You don't have to go, but I do!"

Despite that premonition, they set sail from Aruba, Fisher's bulldog Gary in tow. "It was whatever pathetic thing I picked up from my mother [Debbie Reynolds]," says Fisher. "You know, the show must go on."

Unfortunately, it did. By the time Fisher took the stage, the 56-year-old bestselling author, screenwriter and Star Wars actress was in the throes of a bipolar episode. Shocked audience members watched as she rambled, slurred words and mumbled lyrics. Her dog relieved himself onstage as some people fled.
