How George Lucas' Wife Was Erased From History
When one thinks of the mighty franchise that is Star Wars, the mind will almost always think of George Lucas. This is the man millions of fans have to thank for introducing us to the galaxy far, far away after all. What many fans don't know though, is he wasn't the only "Lucas" involved. There was another who helped him conceive his ultimate vision. Her name was Marcia Lucas, and she was his wife.
Kendra and Lil
Wearing the heart-shaped locket wasn’t required for Kendra’s clone to function. It was more of a memento or possibly a form of advertising, that the clone company included with the delivery of Lil, the name she had chosen for her new arrival. Kendra immediately fastened the delicate chain around her own neck. The locket itself was slightly corny – the clone company’s logo engraved on the outside, the left side of the open locket containing a photo of Kendra, the right side containing a photo of Lil.
Who Was the First Mortal Woman on Earth?
One of the most well-known and interesting Greek myths that continues to fascinate people up until this day, is the one about Pandora and her mysterious box. What many people don’t know is that Pandora was the first mortal woman on earth, created by the gods as a punishment for humanity. This article analyzes both Pandora’s myth and its symbolic meanings.
The Most Strange and Disturbing Things in ‘Star Wars’
“I find your lack of faith disturbing.” Lord Vader’s famous line from A New Hope shows the Sith Lord’s disdain for Admiral Motti’s unwillingness to believe in the power of the Force. However, this is by far not the only thing that was disturbing in the galaxy far, far away. For movies that are more or less modern fairy tales marketed primarily towards kids and young adults, they actually do contain quite a few things that are either strange or disturbing or both.
A Million Dollar Wine From Space
This wine is from out of space, and it's not my imagination. I literally mean every word of what I just said. I repeat, "This bottle of wine is out of this world, literally." And the price it commands is suitably stratospheric.

Distance is a Fallacy
TRANSMISSION 53 We've finally done it. After months of sitting alone in this tiny remote outpost - has it just been months? It truly feels like it's been five years since I was sent to this isolated shed on the frontiers of oblivion - I finally have something substantive to report. I have received communication from a non-terrestrial source and, after many rounds of analysis, I can confirm with a <0.01% margin of error that the transmission was from an intelligent source. I have already broadcast the preplanned welcome message and am eagerly awaiting the response, which I will of course pass along to headquarters promptly as I receive it.

New Player Joins The 'War Of The Bounty Hunters'
She is beauty. She is grace. No, we are not talking about Miss Congeniality here. We are talking about this bright, colorful, well-dressed lady who was somehow connected to Jabba the Hutt’s criminal organization. The canon War of the Bounty Hunters comic crossover event already introduced many new players in this interesting turn of events where the carbonite-frozen Han Solo was taken from Boba Fett on his way to Jabba the Hutt after the events of The Empire Strikes Back. As a bounty was put on Boba Fett for his failure to deliver more quickly, we were reintroduced to familiar faces in the business like Dengar, IG-88, 4-LOM, Zuckuss, and Bossk. In the one-shot comic issue War of the Bounty Hunters - Jabba the Hutt, we were introduced to a new bounty hunter: Deva Lompop.
Quiet Dreaming Pt.2
The voice was middle-aged, or perhaps only slightly older than Renard. To her, it sounded like a man’s voice, but she couldn’t be sure, it had no real characteristics other than the calmness of it. It wasn’t panicked, it wasn’t booming, it wasn’t angry, sad, or confused. It seemed, rather, to speak with the kind of grace that comes with an incredibly long life.
Quiet Dreaming Pt.1
“You sure this shit is legit?” a young female voice uttered, clasping a small plastic bag filled with several small crystals.

The Forgotten "Open-World" 'Star Wars' Game
For the last few years, many Star Wars have hoped and prayed for an open-world style game which allows them to roam freely across many of the planets we've been introduced to over the years. Recently, Ubisoft has said things about such a game, and we got fairly close with Jedi: Fallen Order. However, there was actually a closer interpretation of an open-world game long before these - Star Wars Galaxies.
The Best Moments We Had From Princess Leia
The late Carrie Fisher brought so much to the franchise and the fanbase. Her passing in 2016 was a tragic loss that weighed heavily on the hearts of fans the world over. Her character, Princess Leia, was among the most iconic women, not just in Star Wars, but in all of film history. Leia has certainly left her mark on all of us with her unique personality and a fair share of scene stealing moments. With that in mind, here are just a few of her most memorable moments.
How Artificial Intelligence Detects Faces?
You might’ve heard about face recognition and its different applications. A face recognition system can identify people in videos or static images to put it in simple terms. Many fields use the technology for surveillance and tracking people. Some countries are using face recognition systems more widely than others. But while you may hear about it more frequently now, the technology has been in existence for decades.
Why Dave Filoni Should NOT Run Lucasfilm
Dave Filoni is considered by many Star Wars fans to be George Lucas’s Padawan ever since he first appeared on the scene by the maker's side. Working on great works like The Clone Wars and Rebels, he has had his hand in many of the creative aspects within the Star Wars Universe. Most recently, he has been getting his own live action directing credits in The Mandalorian. He is beloved by many fans alike, so much so that many would want him to become the president of Lucasfilm either now or when Kathleen Kennedy decides to retire, thinking him the natural heir to the company. However, is that really such a good idea? What does it take to run a company, let alone run a franchise as large as Star Wars under the banner of the Disney corporation. Can a simple director become a president of a company? Many would argue yes because that is what happened to George Lucas. However, does that necessarily happen these days? Could Filoni continue to follow in his mentor's footsteps?
