RIP Ms. Fisher. You will be missed.
I’m a big Max Von Sydow fan. Not a fanatic, but his presence in a film lends a certain something. This comment posted by Owmyback (great username) on io9 somewhat echoes my reaction:
Am I the only one who read this and was like “Max von Sydow is still alive?”
My thought was more along the lines of, “Max Von Sydow is still alive. Cool. And he’s going to be in the next Star Wars movie. Also cool.”
io9 commenter CindyLouCthulhu (again, great username) added the following:
The Seventh Seal must have been a true story. Dude clearly beat Death at chess.

And just for yucks, a compilation of The Best of C3P0:
So? Are we excited? Do we care? Are we becoming overwhelmed by the amount of entertainment in the world today? The answer to all of these questions is… a little bit.

The always wonderful website io9 tells us that Carrie Fisher told Palm Beach Illustrated that she would indeed return to Star Wars for the upcoming movies. This is good news. It is also good news that Carrie Fisher is funny.
Quote from the interview:
Q: What do you think Princess Leia is like today?
She says more, but the abbreviated version makes me laugh. Read the whole thing here.
Here is a video of Princess Leia insulting Han Solo, because really, why not? It’s only ten seconds. Watch it.
