Get your Jedi on with this spiffy video showing the action in a lightsaber battle between Darth Vader and a young Obi-Wan from each fighter’s perspective.
From the moment I first read about JJ Abrams snagging the director’s gig for the STAR WARS franchise, I immediately started thinking about what a Abrams style reboot of George Lucas’ universe would be like. Then I started thinking about who would get cast for the iconic roles. And then I started thinking that everyone with a blog on the Internet was probably thinking the same thing. So I started thinking about what a rebooted STAR WARS cast would look like if all of the characters were being portrayed by veterans of Abrams’ Bad Robot produced TV series.
And that is how we got to this point in the space time continuum, folks.
It was inevitable once J.J. Abrams was announced as having been chosen to shepherd the further adventures of Disney’s newly acquired Star Wars franchise but that doesn’t diminish the coolness factor of what a fan envisions an Abram’s Star Wars trailer would possibly look like.
My favorite line has to be “We are going to play a wonderful game called Who’s Your Daddy and What Does He Do”, that line cracks me up no matter how many times I hear it but it is even funnier when it looks like Vader is the one saying it.

How do you make the epitome of sci-fi cool, badass bounty hunter Boba Fett, even cooler? Make him a samurai armored badass bounty hunter, that’s how. Thanks to the fine folks at Anarchy Squared Creations that dream is now a reality and not the fever dream of Star Wars fanboys across the universe.
In an effort to appear open-minded and “with it”, it has become commonplace in the annals of moviedom to sometimes just throw in a black dude for a splash of melanin in what would otherwise be a completely white movie. These token characters/actors are rarely major parts of the film, hardly ever get any lovin’, and more often than not they just end up dying.
However there are the exceptions to the rule that transcend the tokenism of the role and become a part of pop culture. So without further ado here is my list of the 10 Best Token Black Guys in Movie History.
