According to The Hollywood Reporter, filming on Star Wars Episode VII restarted earlier this week at Pinewood Studios in the UK. Harrison Ford broke his leg on the set of the movie back in June, and with Han Solo set to play a key role in the J.J. Abrams helmed movie, there was a lot of concern that the release date would have to be changed to accomodate his recovery. In case you somehow missed the news, Ford broke his leg while shooting a scene on the Millennium Falcon. The 71-year-old actor would have to undergo surgery, but he's fine now and Star Wars Episode VII is still expected to hit on December 18th, 2015. The movie also stars Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and newcomers to the franchise, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o and Max von Sydow. »
After a brief hiatus, Star Wars: Episode VII has resumed production following Harrison Ford's well-publicized injury on set. He joins the rest of the cast in London, where filming will continue at Pinewood Studios.
Filming on the highly anticipated sequel actually began earlier this week under the direction of J.J. Abrams. Things had been quiet at Pinewood for the past couple of weeks after Harrison Ford broke his leg. The actor reportedly had a run-in with the Millennium Falcon ramp, which slammed shut on his ankle. That injury occurred in June.
It is not known who has joined Harrison Ford back on set this week, but we can guess that Peter Mayhew, who plays Han Solo's companion, is back alongside the actor. The cast includes old favorites such as Carrie Fisher, »
The production shut down for two weeks earlier this month to accommodate Ford, who underwent successful leg surgery after suffering an accident on the film set.
The break has not delayed the release date for Star Wars Episode VII, which is due to open on December 18, 2015 in the Us and the UK.
The seventh feature film will be followed by an undisclosed spinoff »
Good news for Star Wars fans… after shutting down production for several weeks in the wake of Harrison Ford’s leg injury on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, it has now been announced the filming on the eagerly-anticipated first chapter of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy has now resumed in the U.K.
Ford suffered a broken leg back in May during an accident on the Millennium Falcon set, forcing director J.J. Abrams to rejig the schedule for Episode VII, before taking a break throughout August. However, with Ford now seemingly fully recovered from his injury, it looks like the film is back on track to meet its December 2015 release date, much to the relief of fans.
Star Wars: Episode VII sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by »

The break was taken for holiday in August when many Europeans take time off, and also allowed for Harrison Ford to recover from the broken leg he suffered while filming in May. In July, Disney released a statement saying that production would pause “while adjustments to the current production schedule are made.”
Ford was recently seen at the “The Expendables 3″ premiere walking without any help and looked in good shape to get back to filming. He also did his own Als ice bucket challenge, standing on his own in shorts without a cast or crutch.

Entertainment Weekly reports that cast and crew have returned to Pinewood Studios following a two-week break earlier this month to allow Ford to recuperate. The actor broke his leg in June while filming a scene involving the Millennium Falcon, putting the production into a panic as it scrambled to reschedule the shoot around Ford's recovery.
While initial reports suggested that "Episode VII" might not make its projected 2015 release due to the delay, Disney and Lucasfilm have insisted all along that that would not be the case, and it appears that with production resuming this week, they're still going full steam ahead with the original release plan. "Photography is set to continue until mid-fall," EW reports, "and many cast members have continued to work this summer on »

Since its debut in 1989, across 552 episodes and 25 seasons, The Simpsons has become one of the most revered and beloved TV programmes of all time. It’s a true cultural phenomenon that’s influenced not just animation, but all areas of TV comedy and sitcom. For so many of us, its quotes and catchphrases have permeated our everyday vernacular, from single words like “crisitunity” and “embiggen” to phrases “you don’t win friends with salad” and “everything’s coming up Milhouse.”
Personal opinions may vary, but for me the show’s peak years were from season 4 through to 10. They’re consistently funny, all killer and no filler runs with barely a dud episode to be found between 1992-1998. Past this point the standard becomes a little more mixed, and recent seasons have been distinctly average at best. The »
Als Ice Bucket Challenge is the meme that can't be stopped. But unlike planking, or owling, or whatever came after owling, the Ibc is doing a lot of good. So far this year the Als Association has raised nearly $80 million. The uptick has been so sharp that think pieces are being written about if blending narcissism with charity has forever changed the fundraising landscape (for the better). So behold the power of this fully operational social media challenge. From Han Solo to Luke Skywalker to Chewbacca and beyond, the denizens of a galaxy far, far away are helping raise awareness for Als. The elusive Daisy Ridley performed her Ibc in the safety of the shower. Harrison Ford kept it short and sweet. Mark Hamill adorkably tried to game the system and utterly failed. Peter Mayhew brought along his wife for moral support. Awwww. Oscar Isacc allegedly had Adam Driver and »

(Is Bringing Back Another Classic Villain?)
We've heard this rumor before. That Ian McDiarmid will be reprising his role as Emperor Palpatine (aka Darth Sidious) in Star Wars: Episode VII. But now Latino Review is confirming from two different sources that the character will indeed return, though he may not be played by Ian McDiarmid, who took over the role in 1983's Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and returned to play him in all three prequels, beginning with Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace in 1999, and continuing in 2002's Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and 2005's Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.

It's a very good time to be a Star Wars fan these days, with Star Wars: Episode VII currently in production and the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels starting its run on Disney Xd later this fall. A new report from Badass Digest reveals LucasFilm and Disney are planning on tying in this show, and other materials such as the upcoming Marvel comics, into the movie canon.
Here's what an unidentified LucasFilm employee had to say in a brief statement.
"We're going to redefine longform storytelling."
The original Star Wars trilogy spawned the Expanded Universe, a massive series of novels, comic books and video games that told peripheral stories outside of the main movie franchise. We reported in April that the new trilogy will avoid the Expanded Universe story lines, which was confirmed a few days later by LucasFilm in a statement that revealed Star Wars Rebels will be »

The headline is one of TMZ's best: “Solo Goes Yolo.” Also read: Mark Hamill Discusses New ‘Star Wars’ Film, Says Harrison Ford Is ‘Doing Really Well’ The film took a two-week hiatus this month to adjust to Ford's recovery time, but the production's blog assures us that “shooting remains on. »

After 25 years of The Simpsons, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who can’t recount at least one joke from the long-running animated series. From Homer’s “Doh” to Bart’s “eat my shorts,” it’s a show stuffed with more iconic moments than anything else. Some of the best, of course, are courtesy of celebrity cameos.
Whether it’s classic stars like Leonard Nimoy or newer sensations like LeBron James, The Simpsons only invites the best talent to join its hallowed ranks. It’s seen Tom Jones performing at gun point, Luke Perry as a sideshow act, Star Wars‘ own Mark Hamill being rescued by Homer himself, and Xena: Warrior Princess aka Lucy Lawless flying through the air. There’s serious actors being silly, talk show hosts like Conan O’Brien getting meta, and legendary musicians — yes, ‘N Sync counts — passing through the tiny town of Springfield. »

It is a fascinating moment to be a "Star Wars" fan. Right now, there is arguably more energy being expended on all things "Star Wars" than ever before. I remember the feeling in the early days of development on what became "Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace," when there were just rumbles of a possible new film or even *Gasp!* a new trilogy of films. Hell, I remember when the Special Editions were just a rumor. I remember when a friend of mine called and said, "They're not a rumor. I have something to show you." He came by my house with a videotape, and on that videotape was the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: A New Hope - The Special Edition," the very first new "Star Wars" footage in what had been fourteen years at that point. It was mind-blowing. It made me reassess »

A new Star Wars: Episode VII photo shows a portion of the Tatooine sets that have been built at London's Pinewood Studios. It was previously revealed that some of the scenes taking place on Luke Skywalker's home planet would be built on set, and this is believed to be where J.J. Abrams shot his Star Wars: Force For Change video that revealed a new X-Wing fighter.
The huts in this photo reportedly belong to the Tusken Raiders (otherwise known as The Sand People), but that has not been confirmed (though there were previous reports of some Tusken Raiders spotted on set). A good portion of the Tatooine scenes from Star Wars: Episode VII were shot in Dubai. A number of photos leaked from this location earlier in the year. To revisit those images: (clickHere)

A lot of inside Intel from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII has leaked, with huge plot details being spoiled left and right. Despite the deluge of information that is currently on the Internet, the main cast and the filmmakers have very little to say about the actual film itself. Star Adam Driver, who is rumored to be playing one of the villains, a Sith Inquisitor, was recently asked about his experiences on set. And while he doesn't reveal any new character information or his driving motivation in the sequel, he did have a lot to say about his involevement and love for the franchise.
Adam Driver first opened up about his time spent with the original cast and what it felt like to be a part of such a huge Hollywood event.
"Doing Star Wars now-that's surreal. I feel like that even with this cast. You start by »
