The Best Star Wars Movie Lightsaber Battle

The Star Wars franchise has given us one of the best weapons in science fiction and movie history. I am of course talking about none other than the iconic lightsaber. It’s not as clumsy or random as a blaster. It’s an elegant weapon from a more civilized age. We’ve all wished that we could wield a real lightsaber at some point in our lives but unfortunately we’ve had to settle for watching them be used in battle on the big screen. So, in honor of today being May the 4th and Star Wars Day I thought I would share with you what I consider to be the best lightsaber battle in all of Star Wars cinematic history. 

Cancelled Star Wars Game Is Now Playable

The Star Wars franchise has given us many memorable games in the past, some that will live on in the hearts of fans for years to come. However, it is also synonymous with having games cancelled before they are ever released to the public. Fans are left with their dreams crushed and only their thoughts about what could have been. One game that was announced and cancelled to the dismay of fans was titled Star Wars: First Assault. It was slated to be a Call of Duty style, first person shooter game that never made it to store shelves. Well thanks to the magic of technology and some savvy  geeks it has now been leaked online and you can actually play the unfinished game.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser Trailer

The first official teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally here! It looks to pick up right where The Force Awakens left off. All the new faces that we have grown to love and even some that we have grown to hate have returned. Rey has started her Jedi training and is learning the ways of the force with Luke Skywalker. However, the empire looks more determined than ever to rid the galaxy of the rebellion and the Jedi once and for all. I never thought that we would ever get this many Star Wars movies so close together.

The History of Cancelled Star Wars Games

This is definitely an interesting and entertaining watch. I personally had no idea that their was this many Star Wars games in development that never saw the light of day. Some of these games look awesome and I wish we could have had a chance to play them. However, others on this list look like it was probably a good decision to cancel them. Still if you’re a gamer and a Star Wars fan you will definitely have a sense of disappointment after watching this video, and knowing that all these games never happened.

Star Wars Episode VIII Official Title

Just a few moments ago fans were gifted with the official title and poster for Star Wars: Episode VIII. This title of the next Star Wars movie has been shrouded in mystery, but we finally know that the next chapter in the Star Wars saga will be titled “The Last Jedi“. Personally I love the way the logo looks in red and I can’t wait for December when it will be released into theaters. Check out the title and poster from the official Star Wars twitter page below.

Hand Made Star Wars TaunTaun Costume (Video)

The force is definitely strong with this awesome Halloween costume. Any Star Wars fan will recognize this iconic costume for the Empire Strikes Back. We all remember the famous scene where Han Solo had to save an almost frozen Luke Skywalker by cutting open his tautaun, and stuffing him inside of it. Lets hope this little guy never has to know the horrors of having to take shelter inside his beloved tauntaun to survive the cold. Honestly though, this costume is seriously bad ass!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer #2 (Video)

We finally have some new and spectacular footage for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This latest Rogue One trailer is pretty amazing and definitely has us here at Nerdgasm Needs even more excited for December. In this new trailer we get a lot more footage and a bit of background on Jyn Erso the latest heroin to join the rebellion. With a better understanding of where she came from it makes a lot more sense how she gets involved with the rebellion and the plot to destroy the Death Star.
