Its a huge weekend this weekend! We should be getting a new poster for The Force Awakens today (Sunday, if you’re reading this on the day its posted!) and tomorrow (Monday) will see a new trailer debut! As a dedicated Star Wars fan I will be waiting patiently for the poster release so here is what i plan to do. Below is an image from MakingStarWars.net, which is a tweet confirming the poster / trailer release, now, when the poster is released I will replace the image below with the poster. That way you guys get that image as a part of your This Week In Star Wars experience. Check back later. 



This broke lat week before This Week In Star Wars posted, but it seems like a bit of a nothing story to me at this point so I didn’t run it. Then I felt guilty because you fine people should be allowed to decide for yourselves. Please let me know in the comments if you agree that this casting, although splendid (Michael B. Jordan is usually the best thing about anything he is involved with!) will never happen. via /Film
