‘Star Wars’ in 2008

Gaming

Did you know …

  • that Darth Vader had an apprentice? It’s you! In the upcoming video game The Force Unleashed, you assume the role of the Sith Lord’s “secret apprentice” on missions to hunt down those miserable Jedi … but the decision whether you take the path of light or dark is ultimately your own.
  • Vanity Fair recently offered an in-depth look at the long-awaited game, complete with exclusive screen shots and video.

Did you know …

  • that Anakin Skywalker had an apprentice too? He will in the new Clone Wars CGI series from Lucasfilm. Named Ahsoka Tano, the mysterious new character, pictured, is described as the Padawan learner of the ill-fated Jedi Knight.
  • Speaking of Clone Wars, here’s a peek at the rather unique product packaging for the toy line that will shockingly accompany the television series.
  • Interestingly, there are rumors afoot that the series will premiere in UK theaters before its small-screen debut. Lucky English people … I know they’re evil because all the Imperial officers in the Star Wars movies have British accents.
