George Lucas' daughter may have cost Joseph Fiennes the role of Obi-Wan

It's hard to imagine anyone other than Ewan McGregor playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in the STAR WARS prequel trilogy, but at one point, the role could very well have gone to Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid's Tale). While speaking with The Wrap about his most memorable audition story, Fiennes revealed that the final audition for the role of Obi-Wan in STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE...

Annie, are you okay? Michael Jackson wanted to play Jar Jar Binks

1999's STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE had a trade federation starship-load of problems, but the easiest to pinpoint is that of the CG character, Jar Jar Binks. Ahmed Best ended up portraying (arguably) the most hated character of the franchise, so it's hard to imagine things being much worse. Much to my surprise, we may have dodged a lazer. Speaking with Vice, Best...

Cool Videos: How it should have ended: Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

Y'know, this is almost too easy of a target for the How It Should Have Ended series, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be done. STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE is probably one of the most polarizing films ever made. While young generations just introduced to Star Wars loved it, the "original trilogy" generation were left with "raped childhoods."...

Terence Stamp was bored by his time with Star Wars and doesn't think much of George Lucas

Every once in awhile, an actor will come out long after (of short after for some) a movie has released and confessed that their experience wasn't so great. I'm sure several are already coming to mind-- basically anyone who has ever worked on a David O. Russell production, right? Or Lars von Trier?

Cool Videos: Star Wars go Gangnam Style! So does Big Trouble in Little China!

Okay, I am really surprised it took this long for the inevitable Gangnam = Gungan parody. The first time I saw the song title I thought it was a spoof of STAR WARS: EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE. Then, I realized it was going to be something that would get really annoying very quickly. Now over five hundred million YouTube views later, Gangnam Style has a STAR WARS parody. But, is...
