Granted, Star Wars enthusiast, violinist extraordinaire Taylor Davis could've put in a bit more effort on the costume; but hot dang if she can play a tune. What's not to love about some intergalactic musical madness?
IGN Editor Gav Murphy was lucky enough to get to attend the Star Wars premiere in London, and decided it was the perfect opportunity to get back at his buddy who consistently spoils tv shows. Well played, Gav.
Mark Hamill joined Steven Blum, and the The 501st Legion to train some Padawans at a children's hospital in Los Angeles.
Of course, Mark Hamill had the sweetest thing to say about the visit:
Thank YOU Children's Hospital Los Angeles ! Feeling the pure joy & exuberance of those children up close & personal is a gift to cherish.

At the end of the European premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, John Boyega announced one final big surprise. Then Nelson's Column, a monument in London's Trafalgar Square, lit up like a lightsaber activating.
The spectacle does look a lot like a lightsaber from far away.
Disney reportedly paid £24,000 for the stunt according to The Telegraph. A few alleged suggestions for publicity stunts that were turned down include strapping lightsabers to Tower Bridge and stationing a stormtrooper outside the Prime Minister's residence at 10 Downing Street.
We know not everyone is able to duck out of work early today to wait in line for the midnight release of Star Wars: the Force Awakens, but in just a few hours we're all at risk for seeing real, plot-affecting spoilers. Luckily for those of us who can't make it to a theater any time soon, there's Force Block, the Star Wars spoiler blocking extension for Google Chrome.
Force Block will help you avoid spoilers by alerting you to that a page you're about to visit may contain spoilers. From there, you can bail or proceed at your own risk.
May the Force Block be with all of you between now and whenever you get to see the movie.
I hope you didn't need to get anything done for the rest of the day, because you're about to be too busy fighting Stormtroopers.
Lightsaber Escape is a new game/experience built by Google that turns your smartphone, in combination with Chrome on your computer, into a lightsaber. Once you pair and calibrate your device, you're off on a quest to escape a Star Destroyer filled with Stormtroopers. They're surprisingly good shots.
Can you make it out in one piece?
