Star Wars Cleared for Planetfall in Dubai

George Lucas has given his blessing to a new book, “Dark Lens,” featuring a collection of photographs by Cédric Delsaux that “depict characters and spaceships from the Star Wars films against…scenes of Dubai.”  Lucas even wrote an introduction for the publication.  While the photos have been exhibited before, this will be the first time they are published.

The book is due this October.

… but Not in Bay Ridge

The Wicked Monk bar in Brooklyn had planned a 13-hour Star Wars marathon, complete with a costume contest and space-themed drink specials.

Organizer organizer Mike DeVito says, “I think [Lucas] has become worse than [Darth Vader]. Darth Vader is at least redeemable.”

Lucasfilm’s elite—the lawyers, not the 501st—forced organizers to call off the screening of all six Star Wars films, where two hundred fans had planned to attend.  Now, watching the films on DVD is their only hope.
