(very) low level of discourse of Star Wars fansites = Metafilter [more inside]
I'm visiting my sister and her family for the weekend. My (almost) seven year old nephew is obsessed with Star Wars and I have been informed that my visit will be dominated by same. I'm totally fine with this. In fact, I'd like to bring him even MORE Star Wars! [more inside]
Do you know of a good source explaining and analyzing the use of leitmotif in Star Wars? [more inside]
I have drawn May the Fourth on the departmental cake rota. It has been suggested I do a Star Wars themed cake to as a reflection of the date. I have some ideas but would welcome any suggestions as to what I might do and tips on how to achieve the specific effect. [more inside]
SHORT VERSION: What exactly is the revised canon scope with regard to Clone Wars material? The first series only, both series (and films), or what? Will either of us enjoy it? On prior casual viewing nether show held our attention. Can I hire a Darth Vader birthday-gram service in Seattle? Longwinded stuff below. [more inside]
Are there any available statistics on merchanise revenue broken out by Star Wars character? For example, I'm curious how much money the General Grievous character made Lucasfilm via toys, games and figurines.
Brain failed me in middle of office conversation goof-off. Who is the critic of the Episode 1 - 2 - 3 Star Wars movies that delivers his critique in the persona of a sadistic torturer who has captives in his basement? Maybe I just dreamed this, but if anyone could help out I'd appreciate
I'm in charge of buying the boss's christmas gift this year. He is a huge fan of Star Wars (he came dressed to work as Luke on halloween complete with blonde wig), and I also know he's a fan of Optimus Prime. Budget is around $50. Looking for ideas! [more inside]
I'm trying to track down a Star Wars parody where Obi Wan and Luke are on Dagobah, and Obi Wan is explaining all the ridiculous backstory according to the prequels. [more inside]
I can't believe I'm using an ask on this but I can't google an answer on it. Is there a 12 inch action figure available for the Rey character in Star Wars? I want to get my daughter Finn and Rey as a pair of 12" dolls and Amazon has plenty of 12" Finns, but I can only find a 3.5" Rey there, and poking around online, I can't find anywhere selling or confirming that there is a 12" action figure for Rey - am I using the wrong name or is it possible that there really isn't a matching 12" figure for her?
As I delve deeper back into the sublime grip of Star Wars fandom (I had escaped for a while), I've decided that I'd like to add a podcast or two to my podcast listening habits. I've seen "Star Wars Minute" referenced in previous answers, but I was curious if there were any other Star Wars podcasts of top quality to listen to which MeFites would recommend?

What is the appearance of Dathomiri blood? Color, viscosity, anything like that. [more inside]
There is a hilarious parody of the new Star Wars trailer done in the style of Wes Anderson. Does anyone know what music is being used? All I can tell is that the singing is in French. [more inside]
My kids rewatched A New Hope this week, and I ended up lost on Wookieepedia trying to find a broadly-definitive (by fans, not so much Lucas) take on droids like C3PO and R2D2. I understand slavery of sentients was eventually outlawed by the New Republic, but are droids emancipated? Can a droid be a Jedi (I saw the Skippy story)? Are droids AI or something else? How is Jar Jar Binks considered fully sentient in law, but not R2D2? Can a droid be murdered? What about copying a droid - is that like cloning a sentient being? Droids 101, please
I have this amazing Star Wars ships silicone moulded cake pan. I have no idea what kind of cake works best with it. What cake recipes work best with fancy moulds? Help me eat the Death Star!
Ok, I'm blowing my question on this because I can't find it and I need to watch it right now. There's a YouTube video of courier typewriter text and voice-over which talks about "A fucked up situation" that the author is recalling. If the title doesn't indicate enough of the video to you, spoilers below the fold to help you find it... because I can't find it. [more inside]
I heard a snippet of a song this morning on the radio. It was an awesome Star Wars theme mix and included a snippet of the Cantina Band song and later, R2D2 noises. I must have! [more inside]

I'm trying to identify what assets were acquired in Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm. Since Disney is a publicly traded company, would this information be located in any type of detailed document? One area I'm particularly wondering about is movie props from the Star Wars and Indiana Jones films - does Disney own them or did Lucas keep them?
I remember reading a passage in a Star Wars novel in which R2-D2 and C-3PO have a conversation about death - both their own deaths, and what it is like to be a mechanical thing who has flesh and blood friends who will eventually die. I am pretty sure it was somewhere in the New Jedi Order, because it was definitely in the context of "OMG everyone is dying and what will happen to us" (probably after Chewbacca's death?), but also it could've been somewhere else. Which book was it in?! Google is failing me.
At 37 I am discovering my inner sci-fi and TV series/movie fandom. And my nine year old is already there. I am thinking we would probably enjoy comic-cons and other -cons, but have no idea how to research this. [more inside]
I read the first six Young Jedi Academy books, but only a few of the adult expanded universe novels... and the ones I read I don't remember. What should I read before the new movie comes out in 2015? [more inside]
Are there any iPhone 4 cases that feature Han Solo frozen in carbonite that are sculpted/3d, and not printed? The only one I've managed to find is this, which seems a little dicey.
Which Star Wars novel features a scene where (I believe) Han Solo is using a telescope to look at a planet in another system, and can resolve it well enough to actually see what people on that planet are doing X years ago, where X is the number of light years that planet is away from the one he's on?
Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Blade Runner. Harrison Ford is in all three movies, and he has a recognizable/signature weapon or tool in each one. Are there any other similarities between the three? [more inside]
What's the best way to watch the non-special versions of the original Star Wars movies? Is it worth getting the laserdiscs? [more inside]
There are approximately one billion models of light saber toys out there. I'm looking at reviews, but it occurs to me maybe someone here has a great rec for a sturdy, non-lame light saber toy. [more inside]
What are your favorite fictional holidays? This winter, my partner and I want to celebrate as many Christmas-like made-up holidays as possible. Our list includes Hogswatch (Discworld), Winter Veil (World of Warcraft), Crimbo (from Kingdom of Loathing), Festivus (which is increasingly less fictional), Life Day (from the Star Wars Christmas Special), and the Ice Festival (from Maria V. Snyder's fantasy books). Are there any more that we can add to our calendar?
I'm looking for images, most likely illustrations but photos might do, that depict the most absurd, over-the-top awesomeness. Imagine someone sat down and said "I'm going to draw the silliest, most awesome thing ever." [more inside]

I'm aware that re-releases of old films (eg, from the 70s, Star Wars I'm looking at you) are common as and when new formats become available, but what is the logic in this other than commercial? [more inside]
[StarWarsFilter] For my friends' wedding, I am trying to get them a copy of the unremastered, original Star Wars Trilogy (Hope/Empire/Jedi.) Is there somewhere I can get it that isn't Amazon? [more inside]

Star Wars Nerdery: Once, an indeterminate time ago, I was reading something about the making of the original Star Wars models. They used a term (named for one of the model makers?) for a certain kind of detailing. More specifically, it was used to describe the horizontal trench running along the length of a Star Destroyer. What is this term?

For how long was Han Solo frozen in carbonite?
Star Wars Episodes I, II and III disappoint me. For me, the they're in love with scenery and expense and try to make up for it with plodding exposition. They need editing. I think I would enjoy something like The Phantom Edit. But how do I get ahold of it? Is it the best edit? Are there other fan edits of I, II and III that are worth seeking out? And how do I get and watch them?
