Watch what happened when this guy dressed as Princess Leia at a Star Wars convention

24 April 2015 3:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Anyone who has been to a Star Wars convention will know there are always eye-catching cosplay costumes on display, but what happened when a guy went to a recent event dressed as a bikini-clad Princess Leia?

David from Comedy Central's @midnight programme made quite the impression on fellow fans at Anaheim's Star Wars Celebration earlier this month, when he recreated Carrie Fisher's iconic look from Return of the Jedi.

"No-one here is a bigger Princess Leia fan than me," he said, arriving at the event.

He then proceeded to ask various attendees for their verdict on his outfit, and it's safe to say he got a rather mixed response. But come on - who actually prefers Jar Jar Binks to Leia?

However, he saved the best for last when he bumped into a woman who had come to the convention dressed as Han Solo. May the force be with them! »

For many Star Wars fans, the release of a new trailer for The Force Awakens was an event of biblical proportions. However, it clearly meant more to this guy than most.

Watch: C-3Po & R2-D2 Hosted Documentary 'The Making Of Star Wars' From 1977

20 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Now that everyone’s losing their friggin’ minds and creating genius memes that exploit one of last year’s most emotionally devastating scenes after laying eyes on the brand new teaser for “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens," it might be fun to go back to the very beginning of the saga, with the very first making-of documentary produced about it, simply called “The Making of Star Wars."  The cast and crew of the first 'Star Wars' movie speculate about a possible sequel, but they probably could not have guessed just how big “George’s silly kids movie” (a nickname that the English crew tacked on to the movie now known as “A New Hope”) would turn out. In fact, if you’d tell Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford that they’d return for a sequel almost forty years after the first movie, they »

Ray Park Wants To Bring Back Darth Maul With Robotic Legs

20 April 2015 7:36 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens already features a ton of returning players, including Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), C-3Po (Anthony Daniels) and R2-D2 (Kenny Baker). There.s even a throwback to Darth Vader: his charred, melted helmet popped up in the latest trailer release. In light of the potential for original characters to make their comebacks, actor Ray Park wants to return as Darth Maul. And he has an idea of how to do it.  As reported by IGN, Park took the stage during a Q&A presentation at Star Wars Celebration last week. While he spent a chunk of time talking about and showing his skills with the double lightsaber, he disclosed his desire to have Darth Maul back for a standalone movie.  If Darth Maul was coming back, he should be topless, tattooed, bigger horns, robotic »

On Thursday, Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy and Episode VII director J.J. Abrams gave us our latest peek at December’s hotly-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens with the release of the second teaser for Disney’s first Star Wars offering.

The Callow Way – Why Lib Dems Hate R2-D2, But Ukip Supporters Love Darth Vader

19 April 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 »

'Star Wars 7': Tech Secrets Behind Bb-8 Droid Revealed!

17 April 2015 6:24 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

Producer Kathleen Kennedy teased during the panel that Disney CEO Bob Iger discovered the company himself. The company describes itself as a, »

'Star Wars 7' Sith Villain Kylo Ren Gets 2 More Posters

17 April 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »

'Star Wars: Battlefront' Will Lead Into 'Force Awakens'

17 April 2015 11:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »
