There’s a trio of interesting Star Wars-related stories in the news today. Seeing as how all is quiet in The Old Republic universe before the PAX explosion tomorrow – I thought I’d lay these fun bits on you.
First up, Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher, has unveiled her new Jenny Craig-assisted weight-loss body and she’s looking to be in fine form once again. The always-smart and funny (best-selling author) Fisher has dropped 50 pounds and can fit back into the Slave Leia bikini for the first time in years. Congrats, Carrie!
Kinect Star Wars Delayed
LucasArts and Microsoft are delaying Kinect Star Wars into 2012. The Star Wars-themed Xbox 360 bundle has also been pushed into next year. Game Informer are reporting this as good news. After playing the game, they feel the devs need more time to polish and perfect.
‘Heir to the Empire’ 20th Anniversary Edition
Lastly, a 20th anniversary edition of Timothy Zahn’s Star Wars: Heir to the Empire novel is being released on September 6th. If you hop over to Game Informer you can read the book‘s second chapter and even have a chance at winning a free copy. Many consider Star Wars: Heir to the Empire to be one of the best Star Wars novels. Why not see if you agree?
