Move over, R2-D2 an BB-8, because there’s another contender for the Cutest Little Buddy award in the Star Wars universe. Say hello to Arya the Corgi, who’s officially the most adorable X-Wing pilot I’ve ever seen.

Arya’s dressed up in Skywalker’s “Red 5” jumpsuit–the one he wore when he took down the Death Star–but I think it’s safe to say that Arya wears it better.

billie lourd TFA

Star Wars fans have been speculating for some time now about just who Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd was going to play in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

People Magazine revealed an exclusive look at Lourd and it’s safe to say that her hair looks a little…familiar (albeit a bit more subtle than full on cinnamon buns).

Lourd also confirmed that she’s a Star Wars fan and used to watch it once a week, sometimes making her famous mom engage in lightsaber battles.

Check out Lourd’s character working with PZ-4CO aka Peazy in the picture below.

captain phasma dress

Designer Giles Deacon created a gorgeous Captain Phasma gown which will be auctioned off for charity (along with other amazing designs) as part the Force 4 Fashion event at Bloomingdales that runs December 2nd-18th.

However, before this gorgeous dress goes of to it’s new home, Christie herself modeled it and talked about why Phasma was such an interesting role to play.

Plus, the video features Christie in the gown with Phasma’s blaster doing kicks. How can you not love that?

Before George Miller brought us the glory of Mad Max: Fury Road, he worked on a Justice League movie back in 2008 that ended up getting cancelled at the last minute. These images of Megan Gale as Wonder Woman from photographer Mark Rogers give us a glimpse of what could have been.

Gale went on to play The Valkyrie in MMFR, but it’s interesting to see her in the iconic Wonder Woman colors.

I’m not sure if I’m sold on the design, but I’m fairly sure everyone has thoughts on what Wonder Woman wears these days. Check out the pics below and let us know what you think.

Behold, the dressing room for Team Stormtrooper. You can tell that there hasn’t been any victorious champagne parties in there. Everything is spotless.

The photo comes via Wired, who had a marvel opportunity to tour the Stormtrooper dressing room for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Head on over to Wired for more pics and info.

“I really wish we could sew his mouth shut again”.

We now have an answer to just what was going on in that Deadpool/X-Men picture Ryan Reynolds recently posted and it’s f*cking hilarious.

Never, NEVER let Deadpool babysit.

Watch it after the break.

crimson peak ghost

If you haven’t seen Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak yet, do yourself a favor and go see it now. It’s a stunning film, and the sets and effects are simply outstanding (which is to be expected from a del Toro film).

But, if you’re like me, you probably thought that del Toro used CGI to create all the ghosts. The director is known for using practical effects and makeup in his films, so a few fans were disappointed with all the computer-generated ghostly effects.

However, del Toro has revealed that the ghosts were created using a blend of practical effects and CGI. He Tweeted some behind-the-scenes photos (which you can check out after the break), that show makeup artists creating some crazy-good ghosts with live actors. Apparently, CGI was only layered on top of the physical costumes to create a fantastically hazy aura.

Check out more pics after the break (slightly NSFW)…
