Had a First Name, Yoda Did

Lucasfilm Lucasfilm

Just when we thought there was not single drop of juice left to squeeze from the "Star Wars" fruit of information, so wrong we were. As it turns out, master Yoda was originally meant to have a relatively wimpy little first name.

Sho'nuff, space cadets.

Those Jedi knights over at Blastr pieced together a boatload of little-known facts about George Lucas' long-lived intergalactic series and at the tippy top of the list is this: Lucas intended Yoda to be a surname, with his first name being ... wait for it ... Minch. Get More »

'Star Wars' Meets 'Rudy' in This Hilarious 'Yody' Mash-Up

Ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm, the world has been waiting to see what that might look like. Luckily, the team at "Conan" is more than ready to serve up a hot, piping mashup parody that certainly answers the question by marrying aliens and football.

"Yody" raises the question: What would it look like if Yoda's dream was to play football at Notre Dame? Just like Sean Astin's impossible dream in "Rudy," it certainly wouldn't be easy, considering the guy clocks in at "two feet tall, five pounds heavy, and nine hundred years old." But, hey, Disney movies never leave a dream unfulfilled, which is why seeing Yoda as Rudy is time well spent, even if it may never actually come true.

But if you're reading this, Disney execs, we'd very much like to see that come true (hint, hint).

Our 9 Favorite Honorary Irishmen: Green Guys in Movies

With Saint Patrick's Day upon us, we're excited to reflect on the many contributions of the Irish people. And we totally plan on reading "How the Irish Saved Civilization," which we're guessing is about how the Irish stopped a killer comet from crashing into the Earth.

But in the meantime, we're honoring the great people of Ireland (while reaffirming our ceaseless commitment to environmentalism) by listing our nine favorite movie characters who keep it green all year long, not just when it's festively fashionable.

The Ultimate 'Star Wars' Poll: The Results May Shock You ...

Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope
Lucasfilm

Long, long ago (actually, it was just two weeks ago) in a galaxy far, far away (actually, right here on NextMovie.com), we asked you, our beloved readers, to finally settle once and for all the decades-long debate over who the greatest "Star Wars" character of all time is.

And now we can finally reveal the answer: Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Yes, give it up for Ol' Ben, because with nearly 12,000 votes, the bearded Jedi master used his mind tricks to capture 25 percent of the vote, with Han Solo (17 percent), Darth Vader (16 percent) and C3-PO (15 percent) right behind him in a virtual three-way tie for second place.

But Obi-Wan wasn't the only big winner. Want to know which film is the best of the bunch? Who had the best line? Which villain was the evilest of the all? Read on for the full results! Get More »

CGI vs. Rubber: Which Yoda Is the Force With?

Lucasfilm

We've seen Yoda vs Dooku, Yoda vs. Palpatine, and Yoda vs. The English Language, but now Yoda vs. Yoda?

Mild Concern has the video, but let's back up a sec: In 1997 George Lucas unleashed the "Star Wars Special Editions," which added many new elements to his original, treasured sci-fi trilogy, including Greedo shooting first, a CGI Jabba the Hut berating Han Solo for dropping his cargo, a weird CGI alien doing a James Brown impression, and Luke Skywalker's severed hand replaced with a Ventriloquist's dummy.
