Hello World!

They're running a series of interviews over at Empire Online leading up to the release of 'Star Wars: Episode 2' in just a couple of weeks.

Although they haven't yet revealed all the interviewees, there are little teasers for each of the forthcoming articles. These include "There were Ewoks mud-wrestling - they're a strange breed," "In Tunisia, they tried to fry an egg on me," and my personal favourite, "It happens with anyone who picks up a lightsaber, the initial reaction is to make your own noise." *chuckle*
