Morning Roundup: Look Closely at These Star Wars Unicorns

Look Closely at These Star Wars UnicornsYes. Look closer. Sure, they are Star Wars unicorns, and they have lightsabers instead of horns (or horn lightsabers) but can you spot the other amazing thing about them? Do you see it? Yes? Good.

Now that you’ve taken your first step into a larger world, here’s a sample of what waits for you in your collection of daily offsite links. 

  1. At this point, everyone is rumored to be in Guardians of the Galaxy. Let’s just start making our own rumors up: Lindsay Lohan is in Guardians of the Galaxy.
  2. Hansel and Gretel get potty mouths.
  3. Leia flies an X-Wing. FOR REAL THIS TIME.

Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Tor.com. Stubby thinks that unicorn is more machine now than horse. Twisted and...sparkly...

I heard Rocket Raccoon is going to be played by an actual living raccoon.

@1 In the name of all things good and just Mordicai, I hope that you are right.

I think I'm opposed to making Leia a top X-wing pilot. The movies already present her as an incredibly brave, skilled, resourceful, heroic woman. I'm completely sure she has what it takes to be a great pilot, too, considering the above and a no-doubt very strong connection to the Force. But actually making her one -- and implying that she learned it in her spare time as a Galactic Senator or something -- is just gilding the lily.

Hell, if nothing else, if she already is such a great pilot, why wasn't she out there flying an X-wing during the attack on the Death Star?

Leia as a pilot? No. She is a politician.

She's a speederbike racer and markswoman, too. Maybe she should do the Star Wars equivalent of that thing where you ride a horse and then shoot skeet.
