Star Wars Celebration 2015: UNICEF and ‘Force for Change’ Bring Help from a Galaxy Far, Far Away At Star Wars Celebration 2015, Fanboy Comics' Barbra Dillon talks with Desma Deitz of UNICEF about the organization's partnership with Disney and Lucasfilm for Star Wars: Force for Change, a charitable initiative dedicated to finding creative solutions to some of the worlds' biggest challenges.  Force for Change (#ForceforChange) empowers our youth to be global forces for change in their own lives and for children around the world.
‘Monkey Kingdom:’ Film Review Full disclosure: I’m a sucker for these Disney nature documentaries and always have been.  As a giant, multinational corporation, Disney does take some heat for being such a huge company that isn’t always benevolent.  I must, however, commend them for starting the DisneyNature brand of films a few years ago.  These movies don’t make the kind of money a beast like Age of Ultron is likely going to make for them (nor do they cost anywhere near what an effects-driven superhero film is going to require), but it’s great that these movies exist for families to see together.  Disney also donates a percentage of the box office grosses to help conservation causes.  We live in a time in which the United States Congress is actually seriously talking about giving over our National Parks and other protected lands to private companies to oversee, an idea that’s absolute madness and would be derided by Republicans past like Teddy Roosevelt and Barry Goldwater.  That the company seems committed to being involved in worldwide conservation can only be a good thing.
Geeks Care: How You Can Help Minky Ink and Children’s Institute When Fanboy Comics is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the FBC staff hopes to offer our readers a myriad of opportunities to give back to the community. We love reading comics, watching movies, and playing video games, but we are never happier than when we are able to help others in need. With Geeks Care: How You Can Help, FBC will provide you a variety of causes that would greatly appreciate your time.


In this week's installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, Fanboy Comics would like to highlight the incredible efforts of independent comic book publisher Minky Ink, which publishes books written by children for children, working closely with non-profit organizations, including Children's Institute.  Minky Ink not only publishes the children's books, but the wonderful staff also educates inner-city students how to create the books and hires local artists to illustrate them.  By encouraging literacy and a love of learning in young readers - and also donating the profits of its work to charitable organizations, Minky Ink is setting a fantastic example to which we should all strive.  We at Fanboy Comics want to spread the word about their work to let you know how you can help. 
Star Wars Celebration 2015: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ - Trailer Commentary At Star Wars Celebration 2015, the Fanboy Comics crew - including FBC staffers Bryant and Barbra Dillon and Sean Foster - discuss their reactions to the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
Star Wars Celebration 2015: The Untold ‘Clone Wars’ with Dave Filoni and Pablo Hidalgo At this year's Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, CA, the Fanboy Comics crew attended the panel for The Untold Clone Wars with Star Wars Rebels Executive Producer Dave Filoni and Lucasfilm Creative Executive Pablo Hidalgo. The panel provided further insight into The Clone Wars' episodes, development, and storylines that never made it to air after the fan-favorite series had been cancelled.  With sneak peeks of Clone Wars storyboard sketches by Filoni himself, an enthusiastic crowd enjoyed one more taste of the show that was taken away too soon.
