After nearly 40 years, Carrie Fisher, who plays Princess Leia in the Star Wars films, has finally come forward with the news we have always hoped to hear: She and Harrison Ford aka Han Solo had a whirlwind love affair on the set of Star Wars. Even more importantly, Star Wars fans have another piece of useless trivia to deliver when talking bout their favorite movie.

Star Wars fans have undoubtedly always suspected that something was going on between these two actors, judging by the palpable will-they-won’t-they chemistry they brought to The Empire Strikes Back. “It’s fun to know that that was real,” Star Wars fans will probably say after telling you about this fling Carrie Fisher had on the set of a movie about space samurai. 

“It was so intense,” Carrie Fisher told People. “It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend.”

*Sigh* That’s just the kind of thing us Star Wars fans were hoping for: Another fun, yet unnecessary detail to pour over. This is up there with Harrison Ford ad-libbing his infamous “I know” line from The Empire Strikes Back or the original name of Return of the Jedi, “Revenge of the Jedi.”

I know. 

Fisher decided to reveal her secret after discovering some old set diaries. Star Wars fans would probably kill to see what other unknown treasures lay in those pages. Maybe there’s something about Mark Hamill’s onset behavior. Was he anything like Sir Alec Guinness? Did you know that Guinness didn’t actually like being in Star Wars and thought that the whole thing was a bit silly?

You did?

Everyone does?

Oh, ok. Never mind.

Hey, did you know that Endor was almost the Wookie planet of Kashyyyk?

We finally got our first look at Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets in motion this morning. We're pleased to say it has everything you might hope for out of a glorious, big screen, sci-fi romp.

The film comes from the creator of the cult favorite The Fifth Element, Jean-Claude Mézières and is directed by that film's director Luc Besson as well.

The film looks nothing short of the grand universe we love to see and seems to draw heavy inspiration from Star Wars.

Neil Hanvey, the terminally ill cancer patient who inspired the hashtag #rogueonewish to get to see the movie before it's release, died Monday in hospice care in England, his family announced.



Hanvey's wife Andrea set up a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for St. Michael's. And shared the following statement:

"On behalf of all our family we would like to thank everyone who has passed on their condolences following Neil's death last night... We would also like to thank the tens of thousands of people who supported the #RogueOneWish campaign. All the messages of love during the past week have given us a great deal of comfort during a very difficult time. We would also like to thank everyone at St. Michael's Hospice, especially Amy Duncan, without whom #RogueOneWish would not have happened. All donations at Neil's funeral will go to the Hospice's Family Support team and will be used to fund work with children and young people."



Rest in peace, Neil Hanvey.

Before Alden Ehrenreich nabbed the part, every actor worth their salt (Judie Foster,et al) tried out for the part. My word, your were SO close, Jeff Goldblum!

Good Guy Mark Hamill harnessed his inner Jedi to offer up some Yoda-style wisdom to a female fan asking if it's chill to dress as Luke Skywalker.

Hamill, who has one of the most interactive celebrity accounts on Twitter, has been known to let his Joker personality show every now and then.

Tuesday, Hamill decided to choose the Jedi path and deliver advice worthy of the Jedi council.
