With only one week left - ONE WEEK LEFT!!! - until Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith opens, there's a lot going on in Star Wars news.

First is a new TV spot entitled "End of Wars" which is perhaps the best Star Wars trailer I've ever seen. It really gets into the dark aspects of the story, and definitely sets the mood. If you thought Empire was dark, just watch this. It's got some great new music cues too.

Second, don't forget that George Lucas will be appearing on The O.C. tonight. The Star Wars website has an article on his guest appearance, as well as a video interview.

Third, MTV will be airing it's Star Wars Special on TRL Friday, live from Skywalker Ranch. has some other SW articles (like every other media outlet right now), but this mini-blog by a fan waiting in line should be an interesting read.

Next are some additional items that I didn't quite get around to posting before, so now is probably a good time.

Mark Hammill says "Star Wars will never end." Funny poster mockups for the new TV series. A Life-size X-Wing was on sale on EBay. Han Solo in Lego Carbonite.
