star wars news episode VII: beware of the ewoks

yeah! in yer eye george lucas! i managed to produce VII episodes of my franchise! and it really wasn't that hard.

now, on star wars news: news from the dark nether regions of star wars fandom i do bang on a fair bit about stormtroopers. it's because, despite the fact that they work for the dark side, they're cool.

so anyway, today i got wind of a cool-sounding project by eight illustrators paying tribute to star wars by interpreting elements of the original movies in their own way. the book is called 'harvest is when i need you the most'. (a reference to uncle owen's impassioned speech to luke near the beginning of the first star wars movie - but you already knew that.) i found out about the book on drawn and you can see the book website for yourself here.

this particular frame (by branden d lamb) took my fancy. damn ewoks...

this episode was brought to you in association with the quote: “aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?” - princess leia
