Designed with a remarkable attention to detail and boasting high-quality sound with powerful bass all in a wireless portable package, they are the ultimate speakers for Star Wars fans and officially certified by Lucasfilm and Disney.

C-3PO and the Stormtrooper are fan favorite characters and to do them justice, the design of the speakers underwent months of work to ensure that they look and feel authentic. Every single detail from George Lucas’ original design has been incorporated into the finished product and even go that one step further by including vents and grills that were just stickers in the film production. Made using the highest-grade material, the quality of the speakers is unparalleled giving them a premium and solid build.

Star Wars speakers boast fantastic sound quality, featuring full 2.1 system audio. Incased behind C-3PO and the Stormtrooper’s eyes are two tweeters and underneath a down-facing ported subwoofer delivers ground-shaking bass. Whether you want to hook up your smartphone or tablet wirelessly through Bluetooth and crank up John William’s iconic score, or plug in your console via AUX to be fully immersed in the laser blasts of Star Wars Battlefront – C-3PO and Stormtrooper speakers provide loud, crisp and superior audio.

Bluetooth capability lets you play music through the speakers with ease. Simply pair your smartphone or tablet to the speaker via Bluetooth and your speaker will say an iconic phrase, C-3PO exclaims “I do believe they think I'm some sort of god” and the Stormtrooper will ask you to

“Move along”. You can also pair via NFC technology or using AUX. Once connected the speakers eyes will glow blue and you’re all set to play music. Touch-sensitive buttons controls each speaker, so there’s no need to press down just hold your finger over the chosen command and it reacts to touch. If you have a phone call, you can have fun by answering hands free and speak to your C-3PO or Stormtrooper with its built in mic.

AC Worldwide founding partner, Kelvyn Gardner explains, “First and foremost, all of us are huge Star Wars fans, and we are all audio enthusiasts. To combine our two passions and bring these amazing authentic Star Wars speaker to the fans is a great feeling. We know the Kickstarter community will have a lot of Star Wars enthusiasts, so we wanted them to have the first opportunity to support our campaign.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
