For the last few years Star Wars day arose on May 4th, because everyone likes to act like a comedian and say, “May the 4th be with you.” I make it no secret that I absolutely hate “May the 4th be with you” for a couple of reasons. For one, it’s a stupid pun. [...]
Lego has been teasing a reveal in Times Square that will go down today. We knew it was to promote the new Lego Star Wars cartoon The Yoda Chronicles which premiers on Cartoon Network on Wednesday, May 29th at 8pm. But what could they be hiding?
