Milan, Italy, based artist Alessandro Paglia renders all of his works, dot by dot, using a black ink pen. In an article published on BoredPanda, he said that some artworks take 250 hours to complete. That’s an endeavour requiring more than motivation, that requires commitment.

In order for balance to be restored to the galaxy permanently, both sides of the Force, light and dark, must be destroyed. That means doing away with the Jedi and the Sith. Hence the last Jedi.
That’s just my take. Otherwise, let the speculating as to the meaning of the title, begin.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is due for release in December.

It’s a fan made film, so I know you sometimes need to be in the right place, at the right time, to hear about these sorts of things, but I’m still not sure how I missed Star Wars Downunder. Made by filmmaker Michael Cox in 2013, “Downunder” brings a distinctly Australian taste, in the form of beer no less, to the popular sci-fi saga.

This is a red-letter week for fans of the Star Wars films, with the first of the Anthology series movies, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, opening on 15 December. I doubt I’ll be going to the one minute past midnight screenings that some cinemas are scheduling, but I’m sure I’ll have seen it by this time next week.
In what I hope is an encouraging sign, Star Wars creator George Lucas, has already seen the film (I wonder how you manage to do that?) and, according to Rogue One director Gareth Edwards, “really liked the movie“. This in contrast to his comments after seeing the J.J. Abrams directed The Force Awakens:
“I think the fans are going to love it. It’s very much the kind of movie they’ve been looking for.”
How circumspect is that? The Force Awakens wasn’t quite the film I’d hoped to see, and I think J.J. Abrams went a little too far with his penchant for rehashing earlier storylines. Whether Rogue One will be a good film, or a better one, remains to be seen, but there’s no harm in keeping our fingers crossed, and hoping for the best.
In the meantime, immerse yourself a in little more of the Star Wars hype, with another of the latest batch of Rogue One trailers.

Just two months. I hope hope hope this will be good. The new trailer, released late last week, looks hopeful.

Even though it was introduced as a fan-made clip, as I watched I thought, no, this must be an official trailer, for a Star Wars Anthology, or spin-off, film about Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi. But, no, it is not official, it is a labour of love by Canadian filmmaker Rich Williamson, for a would-be film that might be titled Kenobi: A Star Wars Story.
I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if this went on to spawn an actual film. Or trilogy of films, a prospect that has been on the cards for sometime, from what I can gather. Ewan McGregor, who played Kenobi in the Prequel Trilogy films, is said to be interested in reprising his role, if production were to proceed.

What if planet Earth had become part of the Star Wars Galactic Empire? What would be the impact on our day to day lives? Would we be better off, or worse, that we are now?
And what about the arts? And music? How would being an actual part of the Star Wars universe, have influenced our favourite musicians? This is the way Superfi thinks it may have been…

Up until now we’ve only been treated to a couple of teasers. This is a more substantial outline of the story, and there’s even a glimpse of Darth Vader. Rogue One opens in cinemas on 16 December. Not long to go now.
