Have you seen any of the Lego Rogue One mini episodes?  Because they’re hilarious.  The fan videos give an entertaining back story for Rogue and carry the witty action of the Lego games and spoofs.  The final video just came out, but this page has all four so you can catch up—or watch again for a Jedi mind break.

Oh, and there’s finally a teaser trailer for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie: Dead Men Tell No Tales.  We don’t get to see Jack—which is frustrating—but we get a small hint at the plot and some nostalgic undead seafarers.

I love the way cosplay has evolved to encompass creative interpretations that suggest a character.  The Her Universe Fashion Show at Comic Con featured evolved geek couture.  I’ve found a cache of pictures here that are both stunning and inspiring.
