It should come as no surprise that fancy new limited editions of the original six Star Wars movies are hitting Blu-ray later this year. Did you think Disney and Lucasfilm weren’t going to do everything in their power to wring every last penny out of this devoted fan base? After all, everything about Star Wars: The Force Awakens has us weak in the knees. We have never been more vulnerable to large corporations exploiting our love. And now we know what love looks like: a series of very cool steelbook Blu-rays, complete with new art.

As was confirmed in the behind the scenes featurette at Comic-Con, we know that Simon Pegg has a minor role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens — it’s not one you’ll notice when the film hits theaters, since the actor was entirely covered in an alien costume. But the fact that Pegg wanted to appear in the film, even in a totally unnoticeable part, is proof positive of his Star Wars fandom. In the spirit of that fandom, Pegg sat down for an interview where he ranked all six of the previous Star Wars films.

Not much is known about Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars anthology film Rogue One — it currently stars Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker and Diego Luna, and Ben Mendelsohn is most likely playing the villain (although the actor maintains he’s still unsure if he’s in it). We’ve also heard that bounty hunters are involved, and the latest rumor about Felicity Jones’ role in the film definitely supports that…if it’s true.

Harrison Ford might be a superhero. This, according to Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, who was on set for Ford’s unfortunate accident last year, when a hydraulic door broke his leg. (As Abrams’ describes it in the clip above, his ankle was at a, gulp, 90-degree angle to the rest of his body. Ew.) Thankfully, Ford was okay. Then he later got into a plane crash and was mostly okay after that too. Because, again, Harrison Ford is a superhero.

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?
