STAR WARS Round-Up! Evil Luke Skywalker, Literal Death Star & More

It’s been a big week for Star Wars. You all saw the poster, you all saw the new trailer, and we gave that boring old program Monday Night Football a 3 million person bump in viewership while we were at it. But did you hear about the literal death star? Yeah, there’s a distant star that is basically eating a nearby planet, and is tearing apart its own solar system in the process! And did you see the clip from 2005 where Mark Hamill told J.J. Abrams he wants Luke Skywalker to be evil? Yeah, there was a ton of Star Wars stuff on the web this week! We’re talking about all these stories and more on today’s edition of WTFridays.

Join Jessica Chobot for the scoop on evil Luke, Target’s T-shirt gaffe, and a worldwide Lego shortage, on today’s Nerdist News.
