It’s a morning full of blockbuster announcements at the cuppa, with all this great news, I’m heading into work soon to tender my resignation.
- JJ Abrams, has FINALLY agreed to come and write a guest post on my blog (about time, Jaje!). Look for an exclusive announcement about the Star Trek/Star Wars crossover that’s being planned. One hint: how does Spock survive a Wookie attack?
- Speaking of big announcements, Neil Gaiman will begin narrating my blog. Starting on April 22nd he’ll drop in every day to read the Morning Cuppa! He’s even agreed to read all the links that I send people off to from here! Thanks Gaim-ster!
- I’ve saved the biggest news for last. One of my friends secretly submitted my manuscript of my first novel to a publisher who I can’t name yet and they’ve accepted it in unedited form! I got an email from them praising my experimental ‘raw’ style. We’re still working out the deets but I’ll be sure to post an update when I can!
It’s Friday, you rebel scum, and I have a Jawa’s Sandcrawler full of Star Wars news to share.
- I’ve been sitting on this one for quite some time… it was embargoed by upper management at the Death Star but I can finally share that Darth Vader is returning to CNN!
- JJ Abrams MUST have read my blog and saw me mention the term Super 8 yesterday with nary a whisper of his name. Well, he threw a shit-fit and came out to the Wrap, saying, “I’m directing the next god damn Star Wars, let’s see that asshole forget to mention me now!”*
- And for the trifecta, Tor.com writes about the odd differences between the original Star Wars movie (yes, original, wanna fight about it?) and the novelization of the movie. Seems odd there’d be any differences. Normally a movie novelization is just a crappy reproduction of the movie, cynically added to buff out the marketing plan and dry-hump an idea for some quick coin. No one ever accused anyone within the Star Wars franchise of doing that though.
*JJ Abrams probably didn’t say this.
