BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
It's well known that J.J. Abrams is a filmmaker who is a big fan of the "Big Screen Experience." This legacy has continued with the filming of Star Wars: Episode VII, and, as it turns out, the writer/director is so serious about it that he actually got special poster designed warning visitors to the set that they absolutely cannot say anything about what they get to see from the movie.
Obi-Wan continues to be one of the most popular figures in Star Wars lore, especially with a younger generation who knows the hero from the Prequel Trilogy (as played by Ewan McGregor) and the animated Star Wars: Clone Wars series.
Latino-Review ticked off a number of connections between a second draft of the sequel and the earlier Star Wars movies – notably, Return of the Jedi, which will be the last stage of action leading into (sort of) the plot of Episode VII.
Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII are without question the two biggest Hollywood films currently in production, but what's strange is the fact that there appears to be a bizarre rivalry that exists between them. As it turns out, there is one man fully responsible for the whole thing.
Earlier this week, the mother of all Star Wars spoilers hit the Internet. We’re not here to debate the ethics of whether or not it should exist. Instead, now that it’s out there, we’re here to talk about what it means or could mean. Hell, we’re here to talk about whether or not it’s even legitimate.
The granddaddy of Star Wars: Episode VII rumors landed online, and we’re going to discuss it, for those who want to continue the conversation.
With J.J. Abrams at the helm, we all expect that Star Wars: Episode VII will be jam-packed with references to the original trilogy – even beyond the fact that every member of the main cast is coming back. That fact only makes this fresh rumor more believable.
We fully expect that J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII will begin in the traditional way, complete with the sound of John Williams’ brilliant score and yellow text scrolling across the screen, but everything that happens after that point is a complete mystery to fans thanks to the production’s strict secrecy. Now a new report has painted an interesting picture of what we can expect from the opening scene of the new Star Wars movie.
All the way back in early 2013, Mark Hamill pitched what he would like to see from Luke Skywalker in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. The actor suggested that that the Jedi could move into the "Obi-Wan range [as] an influential character" who plays an important role while making way for the younger generation. If new rumors are to be then it looks like star may actually be getting his wish.
Oscar Isaac talks about his upcoming projects, including a little movie called Star Wars: Episode VII, in this new interview. Find out what he really loves about JJ Abrams' new production.

J.J. Abrams is bound to hide some Easter Eggs and include some fan service cameos in Star Wars: Episode VII. Today we take a look at seven characters we'd like to catch up with.
The design of the Stormtrooper has enjoyed several tweaks through the first six Star Wars movies, from the clean-cut white-and-black appearance in A New Hope to the color enhancements brought in for the digital prequels and the new Clone Wars TV shows.
Do you regard yourself as a Star Wars nut? Do you think your knowledge and devotion to George Lucas’ series is beyond compare? Now ask yourself; would you buy a drone and fly it over Pinewood Studios just to get a glimpse of Star Wars Episode VII being filmed? If you said no, then you’re not even close to be on the top echelon of Jedi connoisseurs. If you said yes, I’m not sure whether to be impressed or ashamed of your antics. I think I'm a bit of both.
Roger Moore, AKA James Bond, recently visited the Star Wars: Episode VII set, and what he saw has fans speculating that a return trip to one of The Empire Strikes Back's most beloved locations could be in the works.
The ball is in your court now, Mr. Snyder. What are you planning to share next? Listen to our Monday Movie Memo, perhaps. Take a few of our suggestions. Let’s keep this game going, gentlemen.
This video takes us front and center for the best look of the Falcon that we have seen. It cements the fact that J.J. Abrams is going above and beyond to build actual ships and use practical sets and effects for Star Wars: Episode VII.
Similar to how you will regularly hear John Ratzenberger's voice in a Pixar movie or find a Stan Lee cameo in a Marvel Comics-based film, writer/director J.J. Abrams isn't a big fan of working on movies or television shows without the inclusion of his own little good luck charm actor. Fortunately, the director was able to bring him along for Star Wars: Episode VII
Just like Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, actor Anthony Daniels is an incredibly important part of the Star Wars legacy. He's just slightly handicapped by the fact that you can't see his face under the C-3PO helmet. He and Kenny Baker, the man inside R2-D2, are the only actors to be part of every single film, so when Star Wars: Episode VII started to move into active development, it made perfect sense that they would return.
Given the amount of secrecy J.J. Abrams prefers to have on and around his movie sets, Star Wars: Episode VII has been an open book. We know a lot more about Star Wars: Episode VII than anticipated. Still, how much of it is true?
