star wars proposal video, korey lewis

Gray McKinley said "Yes."

There are 11 films in the "Star Wars" saga and the funny thing is that none of the romantic relationships seem to work out. Han and Leia break up after having a psychopath for a son. Luke and Leia didn't work out because they're related.

Anakin Skywalker force-choked Padmé Amidala, ending that relationship, and who knows what was happening between Rey and Kylo.

Sorry, Rose, Finn just really wasn't that into you.

The only couple that sticks together throughout the entire series is R2-D2 and C-3PO.

Korey Lewis hoped to break that trend by proposing to his girlfriend Gray McKinley through an amazing trailer he made for a nonexistent fan film titled, "Star Wars: Union of the Jedi."



In the trailer, Lewis plays a Jedi who has found a device that looks like the wayfinder from "The Rise of Skywalker" and holds the ring he must give to his girlfriend. But first he has to fight off what appears to be a Sith lord. The trailer is super sweet because it features the couple's family, including Lewis' father and McKinley's mom and sister.

Much like the Skywalker saga, it was truly a family affair.

At the end of the trailer Lewis pops the question: "Will you marry me?" To which McKinley said yes.

William Shatner describes the profound grief he felt when he finally went to space for real

The OG Captain Kirk's real-life space experience holds important lessons for us all.

"William Shatner" by Gage Skidmore is licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0.

William Shatner's trip to space wasn't what he expected.

Statistically speaking, the number of humans who have traveled into space is insignificant. But the experience of leaving our home planet and venturing into the great beyond is incredibly significant for the individuals who have actually done it.

One of those fortunate humans is actor William Shatner, who spent three years pretending to hurtle through space in his iconic role as Captain James T. Kirk on the original "Star Trek" series. As captain of the USS Enterprise, Captain Kirk was dedicated to exploring "strange new worlds," seeking out "new life and new civilizations" and boldly going "where no man has gone before."

Naturally, Shatner has spent a lot of time pondering what it would be like to actually experience leaving Earth, and when he took the opportunity to join Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin trip to space in October 2021 at age 90, he was able to compare how his expectations met up with reality.

Our childhood fairytales got wolves wrong

Wolves deserve a place on our planet just as much as we do.

We are all familiar with the stories of The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood. In every childhood tale, wolves were depicted as deceitful and threatening - creatures that would devour our livestock and grandparents. As a child, I had chills when wolves howled in films.

All it took to change this perception was taking one step into Wolf Park, a research and education facility in Battle Ground, Indiana. As a visitor, intern, volunteer, and now staff member, I've observed the wolves at Wolf Park mourning packmates who have crossed the rainbow bridge, gently tending to pups, and spending afternoons playing chase on frozen lakes or grassy meadows. Studying wolves at such a close distance is enough to alter anyone's perceptions of this apex predator.

Mamma mia, so much better!

The latest trailer for Nintendo’s animated “Super Mario Bros.” movie, featuring Chris Pratt as the voice of everyone’s favorite goomba-stomping Italian plumber, dropped on Oct. 6, and let’s just say reviews were … mixed, at best.

People were generally disappointed that Pratt sounded nothing like the iconic character in the trailer, seemingly taking no inspiration from Charles Martinet, the voice actor who originated the role and created Mario’s signature accent—along with almost every character in the video game.

Carlos Morillo, who claims to be a voice actor, wrote on Reddit, “I edited the Super Mario Bros. Movie trailer to see how it would sound without Chris Pratt,” and judging from the comments online, this rendition was much closer to what audiences had hoped for.
