As a kid, one of my favorite comic book series was What If? by Marvel Comics. Set in random alternate realities, each issue placed a familiar character in unfamiliar territory (e.g. What if the Hulk had the brain of Bruce Banner? What if the world knew Daredevil was blind?).
We're celebrating May 4th (aka "May the Force Be With You Day") by rounding up the most creative wedding ideas inspired by George Lucas' 1977 sci-fi game-changer.

The Fandom Awakens! For this week's show, we're joined by a special guest, award-winning documentary filmmaker Ray Nowosielski, and we go through the big batch of trailers that dropped in the last few days.

Here are some random but real hints: Sorta not-really bipartisan bill; can't believe they passed up Harry Potter; Chewie's home; and politics and poker. Answers are below the quiz.
Although only a few months old, they are scuffed and well-worn. Their white soles already marked from climbing trees and exploring parks, playgrounds and backyards. They are I'm-a-big-kid-now shoes, full of adventure, potential, growth and a future of life and possibility.
While little was revealed at the panel, and the trailer doesn't quite answer any of the questions we have about what might have gone on in the thirty years since the destruction of the second Death Star, we're still being treated with plenty of new information and things to look at.

Instead of Luke's crucifixion, in the end it is Vader that dies. But before his death, like the robber crucified next to Christ, Vader seeks redemption from his son and encourages him to overcome the emperor and the dark side.
So how does Sascha Paladino -- the creator and exec producer of Disney Junior's Miles from Tomorrowland -- measure the amount of time and energy that he's poured into the development of this popular new animated series?
Most people think that Star Trek-style nuclear rockets are a thing of the future, but the fact is we had them in the 1960s... and gave up on them.
