Friday Sillies: The Journal of Star Wars Research


In the not too distant future, one can expect the study of Star Wars to become a serious discipline in anthropology, arts, sociology and philosophy. Articles on Star Wars will be published in peer-reviewed journals and one will read things like this: A New Sith, or Revenge of the Hope: Reconsidering Star Wars IV in the light of I-III . Not to give away too much, but this article thoughtfully reveals that two of the more minor characters in the Star Wars universe are central to the rebellion and they planned it all along.

Meanwhile, Eddie Izzard recreates the missing scene where Darth Vader attempts to order penne a la abbriata from the Death Star Canteen (NSFW due to some profanity).

    It’s true. Obi-Wan Kenobi is a liar, and R2D2 is the true hero of the series. I would, however, like to see a rereading of the slightly hostile relationship between R2 and Yoda in Empire Strikes Back.

  2. R2-D2: (translations from beeps & whirls) You’ve been hiding out on this planet all this time while I’ve been bearing the brunt of the work. Some Jedi you are!
