I cover all of this stuff on SWPAS, but here's a brief rundown:

1. Both Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor will be on The People's Choice Awards, airing Wednesday night on CBS 9-11 p.m. EST/PST. Both Neeson and McGregor have new movies out this month, but dare we hope Master and Padawan will reunite on t.v.? Who am I kidding, right ;)?

2. Darth Plagueis comes out tomorrow. Believe the hype! Full review to follow once I finish the book.

3. Time to raid the stores again...Target has a variety of TPM and other SW-themed goodies in the dollar bins up front and slap bands in the toy section for those of you who don't remember the '90s. Some stores have new displays to promote the new re-release.

4. Check out the food aisles too: Brisk Iced Tea, Cheerios, and Go-Gurt are promoting the flick now. CVS has some Valentine's Day boxes filled with lollipops featuring those romantic heroes, Darth Maul and Yoda.

5. WeLoveFine.com has a couple of new TPM-themed designs. One is a limited edition, a mashup between Joy Division's "Unknown Pleasures" album cover and podracing (available until Sunday) and one is a cool art nouveau Queen Amidala design (which is mysteriously only available in men's/unisex cuts, not women's).

Rick McCallum appeared out of hiding to promote "Red Tails" and told IGN that while God only knows when the live action show will ever get made, a phrase we've heard since about 2007, they have made progress and came up with a working title..."Star Wars: Underworld." I guess it reflects the show's concept, which is about the criminal and shady elements of the Star Wars galaxy.

At this rate, the show will likely start airing sometime in 2085.

Update: There's more with Rick McCallum and the show here:

That way you don't have to read the EW.com article.
