Thanks to fan site Making Star Wars, we’ve got a pair of new set photos from Star Wars: Episode VII, which – if you squint and look very, very closely – just about shows the white blur of an Imperial Stormtrooper. Take a look at the images, followed by a scene description below…
Some images are from the lot where they seem to be dumping a lot of trees, vines and rocks which I believe must be props, the other 4 are from the area around the blue screens, the castle/megaliths/ruins…and a Stormtrooper, well, just about.
Unfortunately they’re not quite as vivid as we’d have liked, but with a bit of zooming you should definitely be able to make out the Stormtrooper. There were 4 I think in this area, running through the explosions, I think I remember another 4 or so coming from the opposite direction, but that was not all… »

It’s a question that has been on many a fan’s mind. Well, several. Well, mostly Warwick’s to be honest: will the man who played Wicket in Return Of The Jedi and the Ewok spin-off films before appearing in The Phantom Menace in a variety of roles show up in Star Wars: Episode VII? Now, thanks to Mr. Davis himself, we know the answer via his Twitter feed and a new video.Of course, we don’t yet know who or what he’ll be playing in the new film – the video doesn’t specify and J.J. Abrams would probably lock him in the Nockmaar dungeons if he did – but it feels like the director is continuing to pay homage to the original trilogy, with lots of practical effects and, of course, a batch of Davis’ old castmates including Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. »

Filmmaker Brad Bird helmed three acclaimed animated movies ("The Iron Giant," "Ratatouille," "The Incredibles") and made the transition to live-action with the excellent "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol".
His next film is the George Clooney-led "Tomorrowland" which opens next May, but at one time there was talk of him being linked to take the helm "Star Wars: Episode VII". Speaking with MTV, Bird said there was a brief possibility at one time but he couldn't do it and make "Tomorrowland" as good as he could make it:
"We were already deeply into this [Tomorrowland] and it was down the road a bit. For a moment there I thought it would work out to do this and go right into it [Star Wars].
What wouldn't work... it [Star Wars] was supposed to be the Summer of that coming year  and there was no way to make that schedule and give this film [Tomorrowland] the attention that it deserved. »

The New York Comic Con marked the true arrival of director Brad Bird's new film Tomorrowland upon the global conscience. While the picture won't be out until May 22nd, we hadn't seen anything from the film at all until the trailer and poster popped up at Nycc and Bird (along with co-writer Damon Lindelof) started doing press. During that press Bird was asked what it was like to have to turn down Star Wars: Episode VII in order to work on his new film with George Clooney. What's even more interesting about this exchange is that it seems like Bird was also up for Episode VIII if you break down the timetable of his comments. Hit the jump for more on Brad Bird and Star Wars: Episode 7, which J.J. Abrams is of course currently shooting. The film stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Harrison Ford, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, »

Warner Bros. is putting a Lego Batman movie spinoff from this year's blockbuster The Lego Movie on the fast track for production, with the project taking precedence over The Lego Movie 2, which has been pushed back from its already announced May 26, 2017 release date.
Will Arnett is set to reprise his voice role as Batman from The Lego Movie, with director Chris McKay, who signed on to direct The Lego Movie 2 back in March, now set to direct this Batman spin-off. Author-screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith is providing the screenplay.
The studio is eyeing a 2017 release for this Batman spin-off, which may take The Lego Movie 2's now-vacated May 26, 2017 release date. Warner Bros. already set a September 23, 2016 release date for another spin-off, Ninjago. It isn't known when exactly The Lego Movie 2 will hit theaters, but it will presumably happen some time after 2017.
When Disney bought LucasFilm for $4 billion nearly two years ago, that allowed Disney to develop Star Wars: Episode VII and the sequels and spin-offs that will follow it, but the original Star Wars trilogy that started it all is still owned by 20th Century Fox. There are many fans who are hoping that Disney's LucasFilm purchase would lead the studio to re-release the original, non-Special Edition versions of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. If a new ad for an Italian Disney website is to be believed, that may be happening.
FilmDivider came across an ad for Disney.it that boasts fans can watch content from Disney films on their laptops and mobile devices, which includes footage from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones »

The upcoming Star Wars movies will span various genres, according to Lucasfilm vice president of development Kiri Hart.
Everything we know so far about Star Wars Episode 7
Lucasfilm's Hart has now hinted that the upcoming movies will not "rigidly" adhere to established film genres.
"I think there are boundaries [to what defines Star Wars], but we don't want to rigidly define them," Hart told The Wall Street Journal.
She went on to say: "It's obviously not slapstick comedy, but there's room for many different stories and genres that still feel like Star Wars."
Hart added that Lucasfilm and Disney are committed »
From the moment that Disney announced its purchase of Lucasfilm, we’ve been inundated with rumours about the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. First it was potential directors and cast members, then came the alleged plot details and concept art, and now a video has surfaced claiming to include the first footage from the hotly-anticipated sequel.
The footage in question originated on YouTube, but was quickly yanked and the posting account closed, however some screencaps have survived courtesy of Techno Buffalo, which reportedly shows shots of ‘Luke’s Refuge’. We’ve no idea if this is legitimate or not, but here are the screenshots…

Before J.J. Abrams secured the job of kicking off Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy, numerous filmmakers were linked with the director’s chair on Star Wars: Episode VII, including David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club), who has spoken about meeting with Disney and Lucasfilm during a promotional interview for his new film Gone Girl.
“I talked to [Kathleen Kennedy] about it, but I think that it’s a different thing from… I don’t know what Disney-Lucasfilm will be like,” Fincher tells Total Film. “It’s tricky. My favourite is The Empire Strikes Back. If I said, ‘I want to do something more like that,’ then I’m sure the people paying for it would be like, ‘No! You can’t do that! We want it like the other one with all the creatures!’ “I always thought of Star Wars as the story of two slaves [C-3Po and R2-D2] who go from owner to owner, »

Another day, another image from Star Wars: Episode VII, but this one just happens to be the best thing I've seen from the movie so far. It depicts a lightsaber duel under the Millenium Falcon with a Darth Vader-like figure fighting a Rebel with a green lightsaber. It's epic looking, and for a second I get excited but then I remember the prequels and how flat they were visually (not to mention narratively). Then I get excited all over again because there's no way this will be like that, right? They can't possibly make the same mistakes can they? Yesterday we saw the Chrome Troopers (as a follow up to the new Stormtroopers and the costume designs for Han Solo). But now we have this gorgeous image, besotted somewhat by an ill-conceived watermark on the part of the hosting site. Hit the jump to take a look at the new »

Thanks to the website Indie Revolver, we potentially have our very first look at the concept art for the new ‘chrome’ Stormtroopers in the J.J. Abrams directed Star Wars: Episode VII. The design has hints of the old white Stormtroopers, but with a more sleek, rounded design, which I kinda dig.
Ir also have a look at a concept design detailing a light saber battle in a mountain terrain with the legenardy Millennium Falcon in the background. Whether we’ll see this in the film in another issue, but you’ll have to agree that this looks epic! Epic! Check it out below.
The film will star Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o and Max von Sydow. It will arrive in cinemas on 18th December, 2015.

Remember last month when some genuine concept art from Star Wars: Episode VII started popping up, revealing the new Stormtroopers and the costume designs for Han Solo? Well the same source is at it again, as they’ve now revealed a Chrome Trooper image by way of even more concept art. Thankfully this isn’t incredibly spoilerly, but it’s neat to see how director J.J. Abrams is making the franchise his own by tweaking some very familiar designs. The Millennium Falcon remains unchanged, wisely, but this new concept art shows a chrome-plated version of Stormtrooper that should pair nicely with the traditional white. What makes the Chrome Trooper so special? We’ll have to wait until December 18, 2015 to find out. Hit the jump to take a look at the Star Wars: Episode 7 Chrome Trooper images. The film stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Harrison Ford, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, »
