Erik Bauersfeld, the talented actor who supplied the iconic voice for the renowned rebel commander Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars - Episode VI: Return of the Jedi and Star Wars - Episode VII: The Force Awakens passed away Monday at 93 years old, due to natural causes.



When asked about his most famous line Bauersfeld disclosed to the San Francisco Chronicle in 2012:

"The fans who write say they'll never forget 'It's a trap!' I don't even remember how I said it. It's not that I don't like it or don't respect it. I just don't have time to be a fan and see it 10 times or 20 times."

Farewell indeed, Admiral, your voice will echo on into eternity.

Tony Dyson, known best as the creator of R2-D2, recently passed away in his home in Malta. Now his friends have started a crowdfunding campaign to cover the costs of his funeral services. The GoFundMe page explains:

Sadly, as wonderfully savvy he was with creating, money wasn't one of his strong suits. As the people who love him dearly, we are trying to make his arrangements. His wish was to be donated to science, because he wanted those to look into his brilliant brain. Sadly, due to the circumstances surrounding his death (he died alone in his apartment of natural causes), he wasn't found quickly enough to have this happen.  We believe his next wish was to be cremated. We have gotten an invoice for this to happen, and the cost in US Dollars is close to $8000. Needless to say, this is more money than most of his friends have on hand.Malta does not do cremation, so his body has to be shipped to his home country, England.  This is the major expense and why it is so costly. 


So far, the page has raised $3,600 of it's $7,000 goal.

You may remember seeing this video back in October of Fox News hosts poking fun at Star Wars fans who were losing their minds over The Force Awakens. One of the contributors, Katherine Timpf, made a joke that she wasn't familiar with the series because she was "too busy liking cool things and being attractive," and has been receiving death threats ever since. 

It was a pretty rude thing to say, but it's certainly nothing anyone should receive death threats over, many of which looked like this:

Guardian978: I want to cut that blonde c***’s face off and stick it to a thermal detonator. What a network full of c***s.

dethklok21: Wow what a f***ing thunder c***. I hope this b**** gets hit by a f***ing car.


Even in the face of rabid death threats, Timpf refuses to apologize: "I’m sick of oversensitive mobs in our overly sensitive society bullying people into saying that they’re sorry over jokes — even if the subject of the joke is something as serious as Star Wars. So, for that reason, I will not apologize."


Timpf is still receiving a slew of salty messages over a month later, but she's taking it in stride.

That's a pretty high kill count for a guy with such terrible respiratory issues. For the record, Mr Sunday Movies says he didn't include the millions of voices on Alderaan because Tarkin gave that order, not Vader.
