The notion of a live-action Star Wars TV series is something of a perpetual-motion machine, spinning in circles year after year. Granted, the same was once true of a seventh Star Wars film, but strap yourselves in: that most recent rumor of a live-action Star Wars TV series might have mutated into a trio of new Netflix shows.

In an interview with VICE, Ahmed Best, best known as the man who appeared in three less-than-enthusiastically received Star Wars prequels as the less-than-beloved Jar Jar Binks, says that while he was the one who ended up winning the role, there was a far more famous superstar who really wanted to play everyone’s ninth-favorite Gungan. And that man was Michael Jackson.

You probably know Dave Bautista as Drax, the knife-wielding, overly literal member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Or maybe you know Bautista from his days in WWE, where he was a frequent world champion and last left the company with maybe the funniest wave goodbye ever. Perhaps you’re a huge fan of The Man with the Iron Fists (but I kind of doubt it). However you know Bautista, you probably think of him as an intense, brooding badass. But apparently there’s a Dave Bautista we don’t know, Bautista who’s ... a huge Star Wars nerd?

Marvel abstained from Comic-Con this year and Lucasfilm didn’t bring any new Star Wars footage to San Diego (that behind the scenes featurette was great, though), but we knew we wouldn’t have to wait much longer for Disney to show off these two highly anticipated properties — the studio’s D23 expo is approaching, and sure enough, Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar will all have a major presence.

In case you haven’t been paying attention, there’s been a bit of a commotion over Amy Schumer’s photo spread in GQ, which features the comedian and actor cheekily posing with Star Wars characters.

This ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ and ‘Star Wars’ Mashup Trailer Is Way Better Than It Should Be

Ah, mashup trailers — I have seen the greatest minds of my generation reduced to giggling lunatics at the mere sight of a pop culture mashup. The thing is, not many of them are actually good. T-shirts? Typically silly. Trailers? Eh. But every once in a while, a good one comes along, like this Mad Max: Fury Road and Star Wars mashup, which is way better than it has any right to be.

Guillermo del Toro is not making a Star Wars movie. At least not yet. But since he was at Comic-Con to promote his gothic haunted house movie Crimson Peak, he was asked about Star Wars. Because that’s how Comic-Con works. It turns out that the director of Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim does have a dream Star Wars movie buried somewhere in the back of his brain and it makes perfect sense. He wants to make a Jabba the Hutt origin story.
