This week Neil Calloway uncovers a poll that surveys both voting intention and favourite Star Wars characters, with some unexpected results…
On Thursday, the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens dropped at around the same time as leaders of British political parties (minus David Cameron and Nick Clegg, who obviously stayed at home to discuss the minutiae of the trailer online) gathered for a debate ahead of the General Election on 7th May. The coincidence, as well as Snp leader Nicola Sturgeon’s offer to Ed Miliband to help him form a government, which struck me as echoing Darth Vader’s offer to Luke Skywalker to rule the galaxy as father and son at the end of The Empire Strikes Back, led me to a survey which combined the two.
If you’re British, you’ve probably heard of YouGov, the polling organisation famous for its snapshots of »

When Star Wars Celebration kicked off Thursday morning with the opening panel, one of the "surprise guests" in attendance was Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, who showed up along with his Star Wars: The Force Awakens co-stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew. Today, Mark Hamill returns to the Celebration with his own panel at the Anaheim Convention Center from 7:00pm Pm Pt to 8:00 Pm Pt. In case you couldn't make the trek to Anaheim, we have the whole panel streaming live, right here.
Of course, Mark Hamill needs no introduction to Star Wars fans, since his portrayal of Luke Skywalker is the stuff of legend for fanboys. The actor was just 20 years old when Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope hit theaters in May 1977, having appeared in just a handful of movies and TV shows. He solidified »
Star Wars Celebration kicked off Thursday morning at the Anaheim Convention in grand fashion, with the long-awaited panel for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It didn't disappoint, either! There were plenty of surprise appearances and, as expected the debut of the first full-length trailer. Director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy were on hand to introduce the cast, with both new and legacy actors appearing on stage. Shortly afterwards, they all participated in a select number of interviews. And we have those for you today!
Arriving backstage at Star Wars Celebration to offer more insight into Star Wars: The Force Awakens were original Star Wars cast members Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca). Joining them were newcomers John Boyega (Finn), Daisy Ridley (Rey) and Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron). We also get to see exciting back-stage footage from Star Wars »
Fresh off the announcement that the film will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, Lionsgate has unveiled the first Sicario image from Prisoners and Enemy director Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming dramatic actioner. Penned by Taylor Sheridan, the story takes place near the U.S.-Mexico border and stars Emily Blunt as an idealistic FBI agent who is enlisted by members of a government task force (Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro) to take out a Mexican cartel boss. This is one of my most anticipated films of the year for a number of reasons. First off, female-led action films are rare, and Emily Blunt is incredible. Secondly, while I wasn’t blown away by Prisoners, I thought Villeneuve’s Enemy was superb. And thirdly, freaking Roger Deakins is the cinematographer, reuniting with Villeneuve after Prisoners. He’s simply the most masterful director of photography working today, and »

From the deep breaths to the laughter to the sobbing, McConaughey's reactions are perfectly in tune with the trailer.
Judging by this video, we're not sure if McConaughey will be able to hold it together when the film opens in cinemas on December 18. »
Star Wars Celebration kicked off yesterday with the first panel, where several actors from Star Wars: The Force Awakens appeared on stage, and fans finally got to see the first full-length trailer. Perhaps the most memorable moment of the whole panel, though, was the reveal that lovable ball droid Bb-8 is an actual, practical robot. When Bb-8 was introduced in the first teaser trailer last year, many fans thought and/or assumed that the droid was a digital creation, since it is literally a rolling ball with a head somehow attached. But many fans looked on in wonder as Bb-8 literally rolled out onto the stage. How is this possible? Forbes reveals the company that developed the technology behind Bb-8 is called Sphero, a Boulder, Colorado start-up company.
Are you starting to feel Star Wars fatigue yet? Or are you getting more and more excited with each new reveal coming out of Star Wars Celebration? Up next, we have two more posters featuring new Sith villain Kylo Ren and his now legendary lightsaber with a franchise-first cross guard that has earned its place in Star Wars lore even before Star Wars: The Force Awakens has had a chance to debut on the big screen. These arrive following three posters from yesterday which revealed Kylo's mask and his army of stormtroopers.
It has not yet been revealed who is hiding under Kylo Ren's mask, or which actor is playing this unique Sith villain said to be as menacing as Darth Vader, but much more deadly. Many suspect that this is the character Adam Driver is playing, while some suspect that he is part of the Skywalker family bloodline. »
Yesterday, during the Star Wars: The Force Awakens live panel, director J.J. Abrams revealed that the desert planet we see in the new and original teaser trailer is not Tatooine. It is, in fact, a completely different desert planet named Jakku. And we'll get to learn more about this planet, and one epic, defining battle that happened there, with the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront video game, which will hit stores in time for Christmas to coincide with the release of the new franchise sequel.
Yesterday's Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer opened with an awe-inspiring tracking shot across Jakku, which showcased a crashed Imperial Star Destroyer. How did this happen? Dice and Lucasfilm plan to take players into the 'Battle of Jakku' firsthand with a special addition to Star Wars: Battlefront. It will serve as a direct prequel to Star Wars 7, and offers backstory on some »
As it turns out, Matthew McConaughey is a really big Star Wars fan, and was just one of many to go on an emotional rollercoaster while watching the new trailer for The Force Awakens. At least, that’s what this new video mashup would have us believe:

It was a roar heard around the galaxy.
The latest trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was unveiled on Thursday with fans watching it on YouTube and Facebook more than 25 million times. The buzz on it is insane!
Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaacs as well as veterans of the original saga Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, and Peter Mayhew joined director J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy (producer) as they kicked off Star Wars Celebration and gave those assembled at the Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, CA a first look.
Now that the Force is back, it left millions of fans dissecting every inch of the new trailer. What’s with the new weapons? Who was Mark Hamill referring to?

In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Empire has now transformed into the First Order, and the Rebellion is now known as The Resistance. And with these changes comes new costumes for both the X-Wing Pilots and the Stormtroopers. Which, let's all agree, greatly helps the sales of Star Wars action figures and other related merchandise. With Star Wars Celebration going on this weekend, the Anaheim convention center has built a loving shrine to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, where they are showing off costumes and props from the new movie. We've collected some of the fan photos, which reveal two new stormtroopers. The new and improved Snowtrooper. And the never-before-seen Flametrooper, who was first introduced on a poster released yesterday.
Also included in this epic exhibit is Sith villain Kylo Ren's lightsaber hilt. We get to see both Rey and Finn's full costumes. The new droid Bb- »
The clock’s ticking. We’re at just about T-minus eight months until the December 18th release of “Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens.” Anticipation is already brimming for the seventh live-action installment of George Lucas’ epic (and epically lucrative) inter-galactic franchise. 'The Force Awakens' of course marks the first time “Star Wars” has hit the big screen (barring re-releases and the 2008 animated “The Clone Wars”) since 2005’s 'Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.' More so, it offers a reunion of the original “Star Wars” trio — Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher — 32 years in the making. In short, expectations are high. The film is in the trusted hands of contemporary sci-fi king J.J. Abrams, and fanboys and girls across the world wait with bated breath to see what he does with the material. As we wait, it remains fun — imperative, even? — to revisit the six previous episodes in all their glory, »

From the off-set, the inspired second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awaken made it crystal clear that J.J. Abrams’ upcoming sequel would take place years after the events of Return of the Jedi. Heck, even the haunting opening shot included a downed Star Destroyer, crashed on Rey’s arid home planet of Jakku, hinting that the legacy of the old trilogy will underpin Abrams’ rebooted universe as opposed to influencing it directly.
As a matter of fact, it now appears that the totalitarian Empire will be referred to as the New Order, while the Rebel Alliance has been rebranded as simply The Resistance. To reflect this change, each faction has witnessed their respective logos be tweaked, too, with the most prominent being the New Order’s blood-red banner glimpsed from yesterday’s trailer. It’s a neat, wholly welcome change, and one that marks a new era for »

Beyond the opening panel, there was at least one other interview with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams at yesterday's Star Wars celebration in Anaheim. Guillermo, from the Jimmy Kimmel show, donned some rags from a galaxy far, far away in order to speak with Abrams and ask him the truly pressing questions. If you're still riding the buzz from that amazing trailer, I think you'll find the time to enjoy Guillermo asking Abrams essential stuff like, "is Chewbacca a bear or a dog?" Also, J.J. reveals whether or not he has been probed and tastes some space juice (aka Patron). Watch the interview below. And be sure to check out some trailer screengrabs and our high resolution images from the film.
