Short Story Saturday: Chewbaccaball
Used to spending his days wearings shorts and a tank top, the big German was struggling to adjust to life buried beneath a big pile of fur. They promised they'd let him take the head off between takes and JJ had hired an army of fan-wielding assistants to stand around him on breaks, but even for an athlete in peak condition this experience was a struggle.
David Oyelowo And Michael B. Jordan Now Rumored For Star Wars: Episode VII
David Oyelowo of Lee Daniel’s The Butler and Michael B. Jordan of Fruitvale Station have taken meetings about the film. Of course a meeting is far from a guarantee in casting, but Jordan is said to have met personally with Abrams, which is a bit more promising.
Star Wars: Episode VII Eyeing Saoirse Ronan For Mystery Role?
Virtually none of the rumors about Star Wars: Episode VII have been confirmed, but a few have been repeated so many times they're starting to feel more true, like buzz that the original cast will return or that a teenage girl will be among the main new characters. It's that second rumor that seems most interesting on the heels of a new rumor
Star Wars Spin-Off Movies Could Be Origin Stories
Honestly, this is kind of a disappointing direction for this idea to go, as history has proven that the terms "Star Wars" and "prequel" do not get along. I can't speak for everybody, but I don't want to watch a movie about when Han met Chewbacca - I want to see them in their pre-Rebel Alliance days when they were getting by as smugglers and setting records on the Kessel Run.
See The Secret Star Wars Easter Egg From Into Star Trek Into Darkness
See that hunk of metal in the circle there? Don't you dare call it a hunk of metal, or a stupid little short-circuit or any other kind of C-3PO insults. That's R2-D2, being sucked out of the U.S.S. Enterprise and into space in the middle of the Vengeance's attack in Star Trek Into Darkness. Yes, R2-D2 in Star Trek. It's a crazy world we live in
Star Wars Speculation: Is Cumberbatch A Good Fit, And Who Could He Play?
How are we supposed to react to the breaking rumor that J.J. Abrams has tapped his Star Trek Into Darkness villain, Benedict Cumberbatch, to join the still-formulating Star Wars: Episode VII? As rabid Sherlock fans, we should be jumping for joy. And yet, there’s a part of us that remains burned by Abrams’ “Mystery Box” nonsense.
Benedict Cumberbatch Rumored For Star Wars Episode VII
Star Wars fans have been eagerly awaiting more concrete news about the anticipated Episode VII. While plenty of rumors have been circulating, including one involving a certain Sherlock star possibly joining the cast, full confirmations have been slim so far. The latest casting rumor for the project is a report that Benedict Cumberbatch's casting confirmation is going to happen at some point in the near future.
Latest Star Wars: Episode VII Rumor Says Ewan McGregor Will Play Obi-Wan Again
If you want to start your own Star Wars rumor, now is the time. With nothing officially confirmed about the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII beyond the director and writer, there's a limitless universe full of story options, and any rumor can be treated as fact because, hey, who knows what might happen. And fresh off some specious talk that Emperor Palpatine might appear in Episode VII comes a new rumor of a familiar face who might bring back The Force.
Could Star Wars: Episode VII Bring Back Emperor Palpatine?
Now that the Disney convention D23 has come and gone without a single peep about Star Wars: Episode VII, we can safely assume that actual information about the movie-- authentic, confirmed information-- is still a ways off. So take with yet another giant grain of salt the latest rumor from Latino Review
See What Star Wars: Episode 2 Would Be Like If It Were Actually Good
As you might guess, it takes a lot of work to shape up that film into something with actual characters, stakes, action, etc., and this version involves beefing up the friendship between Obi-Wan and Anakin, turning Uncle Owen-- the guy who raises Luke Skywalker-- into an Anakin Skywalker superfan as opposed to Anakin's actual stepbrother. Sure, that sounds bizarre, but isn't the relationship between Anakin and Owen in the actual movie even weirder?
Why Is Disney Hiding Star Wars?
Twice now in a four-week span, Walt Disney Studios has had opportunities to ease the minds of Star Wars fans around the globe by revealing even the slightest inkling of information regarding J.J. Abrams’ Episode VII: The As-Yet-Unnamed Sequel. And twice, the studio opted to remain silent.
Star Wars: Episode VII Teases Its Arrival At D23 With... Orange Crates?
ComingSoon has the photos of crates on location in Anaheim that are teasing … something Star Wars related. As the site points out, Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi once worked under the subtitle Blue Harvest back in the day, so there’s a thematic continuation at play as J.J. Abrams fires fans up for Episode VII.
Luke Skywalker, Han Solo And... Annikin Starkiller? What Is This New Star Wars Trailer?
you’ll immediately notice major changes to Lucas’ eventual storyline. The Star Wars draft, written three years before the movie finally commenced production, features hero Annikan Starkiller, a helmet-free Darth Vader, and a reptilian Han Solo who looks nothing like Han Solo!
Star Wars: Episode VII Producer Promises Practical Effects, New Locations
It's been a long time since a Star Wars convention was a place to break news, but with Disney and Lucasfilm and Bad Robot all charging ahead with Star Wars Episode VII, the Star Wars Europe Celebration in Messen, Germany suddenly became a hotbed of news over the weekend. OK, let's make that a lukewarm-bed. There were no announcements about cast or story or anything else for Star Wars: Episode VII, but Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy was on hand to talk a bit about the film
Watch Billy Dee Williams Perform Star Wars Cantina Karaoke
But the central focus of this video is the karaoke performance, as Williams is joined by a revolving door of Cantina characters, all giving the song their own unique, non-English-speaking performance. Baniss Keeg, Elis Helrot and even Greedo gets a turn (before getting shot again).
