Star Wars Weekends have started at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – and this year, not only is the “Carbon-Freeze Me” back, but they’ve added a new one, and this one looks even better – you can have your head scanned and be made into a Stormtrooper figurine!
Inside The Magic’s Ricky Brigante is planning on doing it again this year…can’t wait to see the results! And follow us on Twitter as we’ll be there in a few weeks, and we’ll be taking lots of pictures, and perhaps see a few friends as well!
You can already watch the first four minutes of Monday’s Defiance online here, but here is this weeks “Shooting the Shtako”, plus an interview with Grant Bowler and Julie Benz, and a clip behind the scenes of the VFX from last week’s episode.
Shooting the Shtako: Episode 5, Part 1
Kevin Murphy (EP) sits down with Stephanie Leonidas (Irisa) and discusses Episode 5
Word began to spread that Warehouse 13 must have been renewed when a union web site listed under their “Current Productions” “Warehouse 13 (final)”, with production dates of June 24th-Aug 20th, at the studio location in Toronto – but what was interesting is that isn’t enough time for even a 13 episode season.
Now it appears that Syfy has renewed it for a final season of only six episodes, according to Deadline [Doc: This is confirmed now - see below]. This is better than nothing, of course, and as far as it being the final season, it’s not surprising given the show’s apparent bubble status. At least we should get a good wrap up.
But I can’t help but think about what happened with Eureka, where an apparent 6th and final season of six episodes was planned, and then canceled…
Update 5/17: Syfy has confirmed the order for 6 episodes for a final season to air in 2014. From the press release:

Mordred finds himself torn between loyalty and love.
Check out this 30 second teaser for CW’s remake of The Tomorrow People!
Former Battlestar Galactica and Caprica executive producer David Eick is taking over the reins of Falling Skies from Remi Aubuchon as showrunner.
What is somewhat interesting is that Eick is taking over production for Season 4 – which has not been greenlit yet, with Season 3 set to debut on June 9th. Eick is expected to get together a writing squad for Season 4 right away in anticipation of pickup, due to the long production cycle of the show. But it is fully expected to get that Season 4 order, being the top scripted show on TNT with the younger demos, and also being fully owned by TNT, which means TNT gets all the income from international sales as well.
Aubuchon, who worked with Eick on Caprica, is leaving after serving in the role for two seasons.
Catch the first four minutes of the next episode of Defiance! A tracker who knows Nolan shows up in town on the tail of the Castithan, who seems to know something about Doc Yewll’s past “achievements” during the Pale Wars…
Find out what it is all about Monday at 9/8c on Syfy!
Abracadabra! Oscar and Tony Award-winning legendary actor Joel Grey (Cabaret) conjures up mayhem on Syfy’s Warehouse 13 when he guest stars on the Monday, May 20 episode, premiering at 10PM (ET/PT).
In “The Sky’s the Limit,” Grey plays Las Vegas lounge act magician Monty the Magnificent, who’s worked the strip for decades. When his casino employers think Monty’s act is getting stale, Monty enlists the help of a powerful artifact that turn his parlor tricks into wondrous, but deadly feats.
Also guest starring in the May 20 episode are Steve Valentine (Crossing Jordan) as Val Preston, a headliner who’s in desperate need of something new to spice up his own act, and Kelly Hu (X-Men), who plays Abigail Cho, a protégé of Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder).
The defendant appears to be Courtney Solomon’s Sweetpea Entertainment, who produced the 2000 Dungeons & Dragons, as well as the 2005 sequel Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God. The quoted article has a number of problems that make it hard to make sense of what they are saying, but the 2005 sequel would appear to have qualified, but the 2012 Dungeons & Dragons: The Book of Vile Darkness might, as Hasbro claims, not qualify, since it was more than 5 years after the previous effort and retained no characters or situations from either. But I also don’t see Courtney Solomon or Sweetpea in the credits list on IMDb.
Here is another trailer from the ABC Upfronts…this time for the Once Upon A Time spinoff limited series, Once Upon A Time In Wonderland…
