'Star Wars 7': Is Max Von Sydow Playing a Cyborg with Dementia?

9 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been quite a day for Star Wars: Episode VII news, with rumors of a return to the infamous Mos Eisley Cantina and images from what could be the first leaked footage. New details have emerged from Badass Digest which shed light on the characters being played by Daisy Ridley and Max von Sydow.

While the name of Max von Sydow's character has yet to be revealed, the actor is rumored to be playing a key role that helps propel the story forward. We reported in July that the movie starts out with Daisy Ridley and John Boyega's characters discovering a severed hand with a light saber attached to it, which they come to learn belongs to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). This discovery sets them off on their journey to find Luke, where they eventually run into Han Solo (Harrison Ford).

Today's details reveal that it isn't these »

Leaked 'Star Wars 7' Footage Reveals Luke Skywalker's Refuge?

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A video was posted and quickly deleted from Youtube today that claims to contain the first actual footage from Star Wars: Episode VII. After all the concept art and set photos that have hit the internet in recent months, it's quite possible that this is very real. Especially with the swiftness with which it was removed from the Internet.

There's also the possibility that it is fake. A Walt Disney watermark in the middle of the footage leads to it's authenticity, and it does (sort of) match up with rumored story details that have leaked on various sites. The footage claims to contain our first look at Luke Skywalker's home on Skellig Michael Island. We see the hooded Jedi traversing the unique and very rocky landscape to enter a cave, which is called Luke's Refuge in the possibly leaked footage.

If this is indeed Mark Hamill, we never actually see »

Will 'Star Wars 7' Return to Mos Eisley Cantina?

12 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If we're to believe all of the Star Wars: Episode VII rumors that have leaked out over the past couple of months, the story starts to sound like it was forged by a very rich kid with a lot of toys and a limited imagination. According to various sources in and around the internet, the movie promises to be a 'greatest hits' album that will bring back nearly everything fans loved about the first three movies. This includes characters, locations, and even iconic wardrobes. So far, we've been promised a trip back to Hoth, the forest moon of Endor, and Tatooine. Now, thanks to another deep revelation of plot details, we can add the Mos Eisley Cantina to this list of life-sized playlets that director J.J. Abrams is reportedly utilizing with human actors at his disposal. We also discover that Nien Numb will be back, and that the so-called 'search »

Is This Our First Look At Leaked Footage From Star Wars Episode VII?

12 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A video was uploaded to YouTube a little earlier this evening, but was quickly taken down and the account associated with it deleted. Does that lend credibility to the belief that it's really from Star Wars Episode VII. Perhaps! I'm personally not convinced, especially as we never actually see Mark Hamill's face and part of me thinks this reeks of someone with way too much time on their hands who wanted to fool the internet. Of course, it does have a reasonably legit look to it thanks to the Disney watermark and the fact that J.J. Abrams did apparently shoot some footage in Ireland's Skellig Michael Island earlier this year. If anything, this looks a lot like test footage and it does match up to a lot of what we've heard about where we pick up with Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Episode VII. What do you guys think? »

First look at Star Wars: Episode VII footage?

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

From the moment that Disney announced its acquisition 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 you go…

 

Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release on December 18th 2015, with J.J. Abrams directing 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) alongside new additions Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac »

Why Luke Skywalker May Be The Obi-Wan Of Star Wars 7

15 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

All the way back in early 2013 - long before any kind of official statements were made about the Star Wars: Episode VII cast or plot - Mark Hamill pitched what he would like to see from Luke Skywalker in J.J. Abrams' new movie. While he had not yet met with producer Kathleen Kennedy or then-Episode VII screenwriter Michael Arndt, the actor suggested that that the Jedi could move into the "Obi-Wan range [as] an influential character" who plays an important role while making way for the younger generation. If new rumors are to be believed - and that's a pretty big "if" - then it looks like star may actually be getting his wish. JediNews has gotten hold of a scoop from an anonymous source claiming to have inside knowledge about what's going on with Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode VII, and it suggesters that the other rumors »

'Star Wars: Episode VII' Rumor Roundup: Searching for Luke Skywalker

20 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Another day, another "Star Wars: Episode VII" rumor. Actually, two rumors.

Slashfilm dug up two rumors around Luke Skywalker's role in "Episode 7." As with all rumors, they are unverified. Director J.J. Abrams has been keeping a tight lid on details about the movie's plot and characters.

The first is from a Star Wars 7 News message board and describes a scene in which Daisy Ridley's character meets Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Chewbacca at a cantina:

She is confronted by an alien, she lifts her blaster to him, he then takes it from her hand "Don't point a blaster at someone if you are not going to use it" and points it at her ...

Cut to the outside of the Cantina as a Planet/Moon is blown up outside, Han is present here (Wearing a thin cut, waist length leather jacket, boots etc, a "Matching outfit") oh and he still has his blaster

David Fincher on meeting with Disney and Lucasfilm about Star Wars: Episode VII

30 September 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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, »

David Fincher Reveals Why He Didn't Direct 'Star Wars 7'

29 September 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 2012, many names were rumored for the covet job of directing Star Wars: Episode VII. And one of those names was David Fincher. Doing press for his thriller Gone Girl this past week, the director confirms that he actually did take a meeting with Kathleen Kennedy, saying that he considered the job for a split second, but ultimately passed.

Talking with Total Film, David Fincher describes his experiences with Disney and Lucasfilm, his idea for the movie, and why he decided he wasn't a right fit for this universe.

David Fincher wanted to make another movie that looked like Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. It would have been dark in tone. And it would have been told through the eyes of droids C3PO and R2D2, whom he views as slaves.

David Fincher reveals for the first time:

'Star Wars 7' Forest Battle Details Tease a Return to Endor

27 September 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will Han, Luke and Leia be returning to Endor? That sounds more and more likely as a new report reveals a huge fight sequence took place in the forest. Star Wars: Episode VII is continuing to shoot in various areas around the globe, with Total-Geeks describing one scene that is set in the Whales location Forest of Dean, where a large woodland battle featuring thousands of extras took place.

The sequel shot in the Forest of Dean for a little over a week, with director J.J. Abrams and his cast and crew staying at the Celtic Manor Resort, a luxury, five-star hotel. They were shuttled back and forth between a location known as Puzzlewood, where stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and Pip Anderson all participated in the shoot.

Kathleen Kennedy reportedly visited the set a number of times, and quite a few business meetings took place inside the hotel. »

Star Wars Episode VII Concept Image Depicts Epic Lightsaber Duel

26 September 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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 »

First Look At ‘Chrome’ Stormtroopers In Star Wars Episode VII?

25 September 2014 10:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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.

Earlier this week, former 007 star Roger Moore revealed that he visited director J.J. Abrams on the Star Wars: Episode VII set, where he teased that they were filming scenes that involved, "something with a lot of mountains and snow." Many fans jumped to the conclusion that this was Hoth, the ice planet from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, but that may not be the case. It's believed that this snowy and mountainous land is, in fact, a different planet, »

New Concept Art Reveals Star Wars: Episode VII Chrome Trooper

25 September 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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, »

New plot details and first look at the Chrome Stormtrooper helmet from Star Wars: Episode VII?

25 September 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may be a movie that is shrouded in secrecy, but that hasn’t stopped a plethora of leaks about Star Wars: Episode VII flooding the Internet, including various shots of the Millennium Falcon and X-Wings as well as images of Adam Driver as a rebel pilot. Today’s “leaked image” comes from Indie Revolver (who also posted alleged Stormtrooper and Han Solo concept art) who claim this is an exclusive look at the chrome helmet design for the Stormtroopers. Take a look at the image here…

Update: And here’s a second image…

Along with some alleged concept art featuring a lightsabre battle next to the Millennium Falcon…

The wesbite also claims that they have some new ideas on the plot of the movie, but stress that they would never post rumours as “truth” or “fact”. So make of this what you will.

Oscar Isaac on Star Wars Episode 7: 'Nothing cynical about this film'

24 September 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Oscar Isaac has insisted that there is nothing "cynical" in Star Wars Episode VII.

Isaac will have a role in Jj Abrams's highly-anticipated sequel alongside original trilogy stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.

Star Wars Episode 7's Millennium Falcon teased in new video

Anthony Daniels says Star Wars Episode 7's C-3Po won't be CGI

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Isaac revealed that Ford is fully healed from his recent on-set injury.

"They're such funny people. Carrie is hilarious and doing such cool work. Harrison is back," Isaac said. "He went on hiatus for a little while, but he's 150% back.

"It's pretty amazing to see him bounce back. He looks incredible."

The actor continued: "Everyone's having a really good time. Jj sets that tone. There's a lot of enthusiasm and it's being done with a lot of heart. There's nothing cynical about the way we're doing this.

Oscar Isaac Talks 'Episode VII,' Working with 'Star Wars' Cast

23 September 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Always good to see someone in Star Wars: Episode Vii doing press for other projects. Both because I'm glad to see a promising group of new blood for the Star Wars universe, but because inevitably someone along the press-tour way will ask them about Star Wars.

This time it's Oscar Isaac promoting a movie called Two Faces of January. Isaac plays a guy scamming a living in Greece who runs into Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen. It takes place in the 1960s, it sounds very interesting.

But, Entertainment Weekly also asked him about the Star Wars and working with the original cast, getting him to mention being on set with multiple Storm Troopers. Neat!

Have you had much interactions with the original trio of Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill on or off-screen?

Yeah, I have. Both. They’re such funny people. Carrie is hilarious and doing such cool work. »
