Star Wars Kid

Over 23000 people have signed the petition to Lucasfilm to give The Star Wars Kid a cameo role in the upcoming Episode III.

Of all the remixes on the JediMaster site, this one's my favorite. (WMV format)

The saga continues: the parents of the Kid himself have filed a $160,000 lawsuit against the classmates who posted the original video on the Net. Posted by brian at July 25, 2003 11:52 AM


It is getting very, very tedious to see lawsuits by everyone and for everything. Maybe we could get back to just packing concealed weapons.

The Matrix trilogy has been a huge hit everywhere, for both casual and hardcore fans. As a result of the tremendous success of the Matrix, a Matrix convention is going to be held at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL for the summer of 2004, during which the MMORPG The Matrix Online will be released as well. The McCormick Center is North America’s largest convention facility and features over 2.2 million square feet of exhibit space. The convention committee has planned a host of events, including celebrity appearances, guest speakers, martial arts demos, movie screenings, and the selling of merchandise. Because Keanu Reeves’ sister suffers from leukemia, a major portion of the profits will be donated to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to aid their research and treatment. However, much of this will not be possible without the support of Warner Bros, and as of this moment, WB has not agreed to sponsor the event. As a result, we have created a petition at the following link in order to gather support: http://www.petitiononline.com/mc2004/petition.html

We would like the public to know about both the event and the petition. We encourage people outside of the Chicago area to sign the petition because, if this convention is successful enough, we may bring it to other towns. Thank you for your help and we will have more news as the event shapes up.
