NNEDI OKORAFOR ON GIVING THE DIANOGA A SOUL IN FROM A CERTAIN POINT OF VIEW

This article is the second installment in a special 3-part author interview series in honor of Star Wars Reads and last week’s release of the landmark Star Wars anthology, From a Certain Point of View. In case you missed it, be sure to read our interview with Meg Cabot.

There’s something alive in here!

The captive beasts of the Star Wars galaxy are a mysterious lot, a weirdly wonderful menagerie of creatures who are misunderstood, marginalized, and regarded as monsters. But Nnedi Okorafor is about to change that, at least for one infamous garbage dweller. Okorafor has earned international acclaim as an award-winning novelist melding African culture with elements of science fiction, fantasy, and magical realism. Now as part of the all-star list of authors in the new From a Certain Point of View anthology, Okorafor takes us into the garbage chute in “The Baptist,” lending her stunning imagination and elegant storytelling to bring a sense of dignity and depth to an unlikely hero — the cr…

NYCC 2017: HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE FROM A CERTAIN POINT OF VIEW AUTHOR PANEL

In the 40 years since Star Wars debuted, the galaxy has captured countless imaginations, inspired fans and spawned sequels, prequels, and piles of books.
But there are still plenty of characters waiting to lend their unique voices to the annals of galactic history.


With the release of From a Certain Point of View last week, we get to experience Star Wars in a whole new way with 40 short stories penned by 43 different authors and told from 40 very unique perspectives.
On Saturday, 19 of those wordherders gathered for a special edition, sold-out panel during New York Comic Con moderated by the Lucasfilm Story Group ‘s own Pablo Hidalgo, who also contributed to the tome. (Marc Thompson, longtime Star Wars audiobook reader, also delivered a killer reading of Gary D. Schmidt’s “There is Another,” nailing the voices of Yoda and Ben Kenobi.)
StarWars.com gathered some of the highlights and insights about shining a spotlight on Force ghosts, cantina creatures, and other mysterious galactic c…

MOST IMPRESSIVE FANS: MARTIN CREANEY’S INCREDIBLE WOODEN MILLENNIUM FALCON SCULPTURE

Most Impressive Fans is a feature highlighting the amazing creativity of Star Wars devotees, from cosplay to props. If there’s a fearless and inventive fan out there, we’ll highlight them here.

Han Solo’s beloved ship has been called a hunk of junk. A bucket of bolts. Garbage.

Add to the list: “a huge, bloody monstrosity.” That’s Martin Creaney’s description of his own massive Millennium Falcon sculpture, a 6-foot-long, 5-foot-wide wooden behemoth on display inside his home in Australia.



The former woodworker-by-trade earned the right to christen his ship after he built the hulking freighter over 15 months. He made all the special modifications himself, “though I doubt that I’ll ever truly consider it finished,” he says.

With a strip of glowing backlights, a rotating laser cannon and sensor dish, and the pristine finish that gives the solid timber piece a wholly unique look, the sculpture is also a work of art. So much so, this summer it occupied the corner of a gallery near Martin’s home…

5 HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE STAR WARS REBELS SEASON FOUR TRAILER

We’ve got a new look at Star Wars Rebels’ final season in the form of a spectacular trailer. It’s a densely-packed three minutes, providing a pretty good idea of the tone we can expect as the story of Rebels comes to a close. There’s Mandalorian action, Rukh taking on Hera, and some Big Wolves. But five things in particular stand out and have me pondering what’s in store for the Ghost crew.





1. Lock S-foils in attack position.

It was good to see those X-wings drop out of hyperspace in the first trailer. It was GREAT to see them split into their iconic configuration and dive in to take on the Empire.



2. Kanera.

For my credits, Kanan and Hera have the most well-crafted romantic relationship in the entire Star Wars saga. It’s built upon a deep and abiding friendship that’s forged a trust and understanding greater than any other couple in the galaxy. To see it moved forward so openly in this trailer makes me smile and dare to hope that there are good times ahead for this pair of Rebels.
