Today we have Liam Neeson interviewed, ROTJ in pixels, a Korean Vader commercial, Peruvian TPM cards, Star Wars Night with the Buffalo Warriors, Liz Lemon sporting a lightsaber on 30 Rock and more!
Liam Neeson recently spoke with Collider.com about his new film The Grey and also touched on Taken 2.
Star Wars popped up once again on 30 Rock during the first of their two new episodes that aired last Thursday. At one point, Tina Fey's character of Liz Lemon envisioned how she see's herself. That includes her in a nice dress, wearing a tiara and holding a blue lightsaber. The scene comes in around the 8:15 mark and you can watch the episode online at NBC.com.
So, how was the whole Volkswagen barking dog commercial put together? Adage.com chatted with the creators. (Thanks Chris!)
Our friend and Fan Force member Lawrence T. sent over the following report and pictures from a Star Wars event with the Buffalo Warriors basketball team. Click on any of the images above for full views.
"The North Ridge, Buffalo, New York's Official Fan Force chapter, was on hand to help kick off the inaugural season of the ACPBL (Atlantic Coast Professional Basketball League's) Buffalo Warriors at their home opener on Saturday, January 14th at the Villa Maria Student Center.
Attendance may have seemed low, but enthusiasm was certainly high as the Warriors played the New Jersey Pros. North Ridge members united to form a tunnel through which the players entered, and Darth Vader had a shootout with four younglings, who got a boost from owner/player Terence Dill, at half-time." (Thanks Lawrence!)
Star Wars is Everywhere! Apparently this includes men's briefs.
The Phantom Menace 3-D promotion machine is working at peak capacity and our friends from TheForcePeru.net are displaying some TPM cards that have popped up in Peru. (Thanks Humberto!)
Well, this is rather interesting. Check out Darth Vader in a Korean cell phone commercial in which the Dark Lord apparently has to go really bad.
George Takei helped present a night of sci-fi music with the Kansas City Symphony and naturally, Star Wars tunes opened and closed the show. Visit KansasCity.com for the full report.
