There's actually a lot of real science here: A lot of the medical science, such as prosthetics, that were science fiction in the 1970s are turning into science fact today.

Scientific American has done a nice little feature on the science of the new Star Wars film, The Clone Wars. The feature has some images from the film too, as well as an interview with Jeanne Cavelos, the author of book, The Science of Star Wars. Personally, I keep waiting for the day when we can actually make a real lightsaber. I know all the reasons why they are just totally impossible (like, making light travel five feet and then just stop) but they are just so cool. Tons of interesting links and so forth - worth checking out!
