Disney turns sights toward Star Wars mobile and social games

By now, you've probably heard that Disney has purchased Lucasfilm, whether you learned that through news outlets or Facebook friends who are complaining that Disney will ruin the Star Wars franchise (it isn't going to, so stop worrying). While we're sure that Disney is going put the Star Wars IP to good use, the company isn't looking to make many more Star Wars console games. Instead, Disney CEO Robert Iger says the company will probably focus on Star Wars mobile and social titles moving forward.

Angry Birds Star Wars gameplay featured in latest trailer

We've seen a lot of trailers for Angry Birds Star Wars recently, but so far none of them have featured any actual gameplay. Instead of showing us what we'd really like to see, Rovio took famous clips from the movies and inserted its famous birds into them. Some of them were cute, others were silly, but now its time to cut out the funny business and get down to the nitty gritty: it's time for gameplay, baby!

Angry Birds Star Wars teaser shows you’re never too short to be a Stormtrooper

We have another Angry Birds Star Wars teaser to share with you today, and this one is a bit funnier than the last one we showed you. Again, this latest teaser doesn't show any gameplay footage, instead giving us another clip from the classic films. Last time, it was the scene from A New Hope where Han tells Luke and Obi-Wan about his famous Kessel run, whereas this time, we have Princess Leia asking about the stature of a curious-looking Stormtrooper.

New Angry Birds Star Wars teaser pays homage to Millennium Falcon

As a smuggler, Han Solo's talents can't be understated (except for that part with the carbonite, but let's not get into that). Han Solo's talents can only take him so far though - it's his ship, the Millennium Falcon, that does most of the work. A new teaser trailer for Angry Birds Star Wars gives the Millennium Falcon and Han Solo the respect they deserve, using one of Solo's famous lines from the films in the process.

Darth Maul Me app prepares you to disembowel Jedis

Star Wars is coming to the theaters! Again! In 3D! And it's starting from the beginning, the classic 1976 adventure that millions fell in love with... wait, what? It's starting with Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, the lackluster beginning of the downfall of America's greatest sci-fi series? Oh, well - at least we get to see the pod racing and lightsaber duel (you know, the 11 minutes of Episode 1 that are admittedly pretty awesome). To celebrate, Lucasfilm has released the Darth Maul Me app on the Android Market, allowing you to mimic everyone's favorite double-lightsaber murder master.

Star Wars: The Old Republic comes to Android… as a security key

Jedis! Sith! Droids! And not a Gungan in sight! The wildly anticipated Star Wars: The Old Republic, a massively multiplayer entry into BioWare's amazing Knights of the Old Republic series, is making records and headlines all over the gaming world this holiday season. And now you can get a piece of that awesome experience on your Android phone! Except that you can't. Because it's a lousy confirmation app.

Verizon Wireless Trademarks “Hologram”

Verizon went ahead and registered the name "Hologram" for a future potential device, but what will it shape up to be? Given the futuristic name, it could represent a device with some new technologies we haven't seen yet - or simply another stereoscopic phone with dual cameras. I don't know about you, but when I think of hologram, I visualize the streamed holographic recordings R2D2 presented in Star Wars.

Google executive: Siri is Star Wars, Android Voice Actions is Star Trek

Sometimes it's nice to know that the executives at Google are just as nerdy as we are. At the Hong Kong event where Google and Samsung introduced the Galaxy Nexus and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Matias Duarte, product management director for Android, answered some direct questions from the crowd. When asked to compare Siri with Android's built-in Voice Control features, he responded with an analogy that any self-respecting geek can identify with. Duarte compared Siri with the bumbling protocol droids like C3PO from Star Wars, while Voice Actions are more like the U.S.S. Enterprise's computer, where voice controls every function.
