I have to admit, I haven't finished watching this, but it's sort of insane. Basically, the divvied up Star Wars into like 60 second bits, and farmed each bit out to DIFFERENT amateur filmmakers everywhere. So you've got this crazy patchwork quilt of Star Wars. It's just ... I don't know.

Preview: Star Wars Celebration V.

The Greatest Swag Item Of All Time
A scant 400 lucky fans will get their hands on one (or more) of 16 exclusive mini-cereal boxes, one given away at each panel event. With incredible art and even better names (Raisin Han, Troop Loops), these are the must-have items of Celebration V. Seriously, we want all of them.

The Celebration V Collector Panel giveaway thingies. And, yes, there will really be cereal in the boxes, though it will all be the same cereal.

In case you guys haven't already seen this in any of the other million billion forums where it's been posted:

I am thrilled to announce the call for participation for the Star Wars Celebration V Collecting Track. Similar to past Star Wars Celebration events, the collecting program is the place where Star Wars collectors spanning all levels and interests come together to participate in talks, panels, and activities around the Star Wars collecting hobby.

There are multiple ways to participate in the Celebration V Collecting Track:

1. Attend: With 16 talks and panels planned across the four days of Celebration V, the Collecting Track is a unique opportunity to learn about many aspects of Star Wars collecting, meet other collectors, and see some amazing things. I encourage everyone to attend some or all of the collecting panels and meet fellow collectors. In addition to learning a lot about the hobby, the collecting panels are a great opportunity for networking with others sharing the same passion (or obsession). In the coming months, look for announcements of the panels and talks as they are added to the program.

2. Volunteer: We have a number of limited spots for volunteers to assist with activities such as setting up the event, distributing giveaways, managing flow in and out of the talks, and introducing speakers. For helping out for at least 16 hours across four days, volunteers will receive a complimentary Volunteer Badge to Star Wars Celebration, among other perks. If you are interested in volunteering for the Collecting Track, email Gus Lopez at lopez@drizzle.com with the Subject: "C5 VOLUNTEER".

3. Sponsor: Similar to prior Celebration events, we are planning another exciting giveaway for Collecting Track attendees. These giveaways are made possible by sponsors who fund these collectibles for the community. In exchange for sponsorship (approximately $1400-1800 per sponsor, exact amount to be determined soon), each sponsor receives samples of these giveaway items, unique pre-production and one-of-a-kind pieces based on their sponsored item, and bragging rights for seeing their name printed on an official Star Wars collectible. We are planning one giveaway for each collecting panel (16 total). If you are interested in sponsoring a giveaway for the Collecting Track, email Gus Lopez at lopez@drizzle.com with the Subject: "C5 SPONSOR".

4. Presenter: The Star Wars Collecting Track is a completely fan-run event. All of the panelists, speakers, and presenters for the collecting program are fans like you from the Star Wars collecting community. Panels consist of discussion topics with up to 5 presenters comparing and contrasting different angles and approaches regarding a collecting subject. Talks consist of 1 or 2 presenters leading a detailed discussion about some area or aspect of Star Wars collecting. Additionally, we plan to have Star Wars collecting activities such as the trivia contests and collector social events as from past Celebrations, and would like to solicit ideas for new interactive activities. If you are interested in being a Collecting Track presenter, email Gus Lopez at lopez@drizzle.com with the Subject: "C5 PRESENTER" and the following information:

This one's been going around the Star Wars community, so I figured I'd share. NOTE: it's actually 7 parts!

Two of my favorite things: David Lynch + Star Wars. One wonders what would have happened if George had taken David to a BBQ place for lunch instead.

Star Wars convention says no to Baltimore - Baltimore Business Journal:

Chewbacca won’t be coming to Baltimore next year.

Organizers of the Star Wars Celebration V rejected the city because its convention center doesn’t have enough room, said Tom Noonan, who heads the city tourist bureau. The four-day gathering could have attracted 35,000 visitors and filled 12,000 hotel room nights — a larger impact than any convention the city currently hosts.

That doesn’t factor in the media attention a Star Wars convention draws. Like Star Trek, fans of the George Lucas films are passionate about everything Star Wars.

Fanfest-type conventions are huge draws for tourists. Baltimore’s largest convention, Otakon, last year brought in $27 million in spending and 26,300 fans of Japanese animé.

Wonder what's happening with Orlando? That's another spot that's been mentioned a lot. Think Chicago is the only other one in the running?

Via Tommy, this is supposedly the promo for the finally revamped Star Tours. Good news: 3D yay! Bad news: for those of you who aren't jiggy with the prequels, well, it's prequels. For us, it's kinda trading Jar Jar for Ewoks, but YMMV.

Insanely talented buddy Amy from the local Star Wars gang crocheted this blue hippo Leia. (She's the one who made the Yoda who sometimes helps President Obama on his Seekrit missions, plus our truly insane Stitch hat. Oh, and Aloysius the Bantha.) Anyways, this is actually kind of a double joke. There's these weird Kinder Egg blue hippo characters that maybe you have to be German to really understand. Anyways, a few years ago, they made all the Star Wars chara as trippy blue hippos. Plus there were vehicles and displays. And, oh, yeah, chocolate. Anyways, we xeroxed a hippo amiguri pattern for Amy from one of the books we've found impossible to use, and like 30 seconds later, she produced this Princess Hippeia!
