In an interview last January with the New York Times Magazine, Jones describes how he once used Vader’s voice to fool truck drivers:
You’re never tempted to pick up the phone and pretend to be Darth Vader? I did that once when I was traveling cross-country. I used Darth as my handle on the CB radio. The truck drivers would really freak out — for them, it was Darth Vader. I had to stop doing that.
When someone cracks the ‘Alderaan places’ joke for the 15000th time.

People thinking that one J.J. Abrams pic means there’ll be a third Death Star

remember ladies, Princess Leia Organa Solo was a certified boss ass bitch who didn’t take shit from anybody and Han Solo loved her for it
so don’t ever think you have to be demure and submissive to get a man, or that getting a man should be your first priority
SAVE THE GALAXY, THE HOT OUTLAW IS JUST A PLUS
why does no one ever talk about luke skywalker’s character growth from a new hope to return of the jedi because dang
Maybe it’s because I love Mark Hamill and his beard to bits, but I can’t imagine Grand Jedi Master Luke as anything other than “everybody’s favorite uncle who also happens to be a badass but doesn’t flaunt it”.
I also imagine younglings fall asleep during meditation a lot.
Oh my god.
He’s become Uncle Iroh.
"Do you know anything about Star Wars?"
Review: On sale today, A New Dawn by John Jackson Miller is the first novel that is part of the Lucasfilm Story Group approved timeline. Set in the dark times between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and several years before the upcoming Rebels cartoon, it’s a tale of how two of the show’s main characters, Hera and Kanan, first encounter each other and eventually decide to team up. As someone excited by Rebels, I enjoyed the novel and found it interesting to see the characters before they united for a common cause.
Miller brings his skills in combining likable characters with clashing viewpoints, in a story setting that he has mastered before in Kenobi and Knight Errant: a Jedi alone in hostile territory. Only this time, the Jedi’s not interested in being a Jedi, or even be on the hero’s path at all – while someone else is sorting out what type of people are and aren’t needed for a rebellion to the Empire’s rule. And as with Knight Errant and Lost Tribe of the Sith series, where various Sith philosophies were being forged and tested against each other, the villain, Count Vidian, has his own philosophy being pushed to the extreme, and we witness it in practice.

I’m not technically doing a review of this book, so there’s James’.
I am mostly done reading it, but not quite, and it’s been a slow go. I’ve never much been one for fiction in any Star Wars era but post-ROTJ, and that’s mostly due to my attachment to certain characters. And I’m really not one for new characters… (Anymore, anyway.) So basically pretty much everything that I was into is now not canon. Still, I’m not one of those folks mad about that (oh man are some of them mad) because I feel that the post-ROTJ books had been kind of going off the rails for… A while. I totally welcome the chance to see a completely new take on the era via Episode VII, and to use bits but not the whole of the old EU. So I’m in a weird limbo with Star Wars right now, particularly the fiction that has been my main focus for most of my time in fandom, and that’s basically what I’m writing about.
Some days, all I want out of Episode VII is for nobody to ever say “Leia Solo” ever
