Is there anything he won't "re-"?

George Lucas in the master at taking something you love and making it somewhat worse. Whether it’s adding a shitty, unnecessary CG Jabba to A New Hope or taking a galactic alien dump on the Indiana Jones series, Lucas won’t leave the classics alone. Which is why we’re kind of horrified to announce that Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, the newly redone 3D version of the classic Star Tours motion ride (which starred Paul Reubens as a robot pilot) opens May 20th.

So how involved was “Prequel Era” George Lucas in Star Tours 2.0? Disney Imagineers had to put their proposed story and new pilot character Ace into the garbage compactor when they “decided to take the story in a very different direction” after having “discussions with George Lucas.” Uh oh. Also, get ready to visit the beloved Geonosians and Naboo citizens! We can only hope Jar Jar makes a long, insufferable cameo.

However, it’s not all bad news. We understand C3PO will be the new pilot. Also, your ship gets chased by Boba Fett, and a hologram of Admiral Ackbar appears at one point — to exclaim something about “traps,” we presume.

In other Star Wars news, the complete Blu-Ray collection of all 6 movies comes out on September 27th for $139.99. The set includes top picture quality and 30 hours of bonus features. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how good the picture looks if what I’m watching is Han not shooting first. (/Film)

Pee-wee Herman Takes His Mean Machine To Sturgis http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/pee-wee-herman-takes-his-mean-machine-to-sturgis/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/pee-wee-herman-takes-his-mean-machine-to-sturgis/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 He missed Comic Con, but it seems any large gathering will do. Even at the risk of being curbed. The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally was overtaken by nuuuurds yesterday when Pee-wee Herman appeared at the Buffalo Chip campground. Pee-wee shared the bill with Ozzy, Kid Rock, ZZ Top, and Bob Dylan, and also led the world's largest Tequila Dance in honor of National Tequila Day (which I missed so I'll start celebrating immediatshillayly arriba arriba!!!). "Bob Dylan is here because people like him and Pee-wee is here for the same reason," said Buffalo Chip owner Rod Woodruff. "They are both American icons." Oooooo, I can't wait to see what Cate Blanchett will do with the porn theater scene in Herman's inevitable biopic. (Huffington Post)

Pee-Wee’s Big Apatow Adventure http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/pee-wees-big-apatow-adventure/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/pee-wees-big-apatow-adventure/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Hey Jeffrey Jones, I know you are, but what am I! Pee-Wee Herman (aka Paul Reubens) has at least one last big adventure left in him now that director Judd Apatow has announced he will produce the character's return to the big screen. The news comes nearly 20 years after an unfortunate incident involving a porno theater and his own wiener left Reubens a Hollywood pariah, all but killing the Pee-Wee character. Luckily for Reubens, society has finally devolved to the point where wanking off in a seedy porno theater no longer precludes one from being a children's entertainer. "Let's face it," says Apatow, "the world needs more Pee-Wee Herman. I am so excited to be working with Paul Reubens, who is an extraordinary and ground-breaking actor and writer. It's so great to watch him return with such relevance." I agree. We need more Pee-Wee. But relevance? I'm not sure feeding off of pathetic Gen-X nostalgia counts as relevance. Unless, of course, making boatloads of cash is the same as being relevant, in which case Pee-Wee is about to become one relevant mofo. (Empire Online)
