Possible Spoilers – Pictures of more returning characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens; Greg Grunberg’s role revealed?

19 June 2015 6:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – possible spoilers below…

Since the announcement of the movie, we’ve known that the likes of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia would be back for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but there have been plenty of rumours about other possible returning roles (but not Lando it would seem). Well, starwars7news.com believes it can confirm two returning characters, along with information on a new one.

If you’re a fan of Return of the Jedi, you are in luck. According to the website, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will see the return of Nein Nunb and Admiral Ackbar. Check out the photos below that the site claims are 100% legit:

Obviously we don’t know if this is true or just a wild Bantha chase, but the website is very sure these are genuine. And to back that up, they have the first image of Greg Grunberg in the movie, »

19 June 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having debuted at Star Wars Celebration back in April and broken the Internet, the second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now officially a record breaker.

Guinness World Records have confirmed that the trailer is now officially the “most viewed movie trailer on YouTube in 24 hours” with just over 30 million views. The trailer is currently sitting at around 54 million.

“The release of the clip created unprecedented levels of excitement among Star Wars fans around the world,” the Guinness website writes. “With the trailer featuring the return of the charismatic villain-hero Han Solo, once again played by Harrison Ford, alongside his furry co-pilot Chewbacca.”

Best of Late Night TV: Slow Jam the News with Jeb Bush, Donald Trump Game Show, Oitnb Star Sings 'Fame'

17 June 2015 12:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

And so it begins -- the serious presidential push, with more and more candidates getting air time on late-night, either in person to mock themselves or to be mocked by the hosts from afar. Republican candidates Jeb Bush and Donald Trump were both featured in (somewhat) amusing political sketches Tuesday night: "The Tonight Show" welcomed Jeb in person, and "The Late Late Show" had a sketch poking fun at Trump's announcement speech. The Donald was not there in the flesh, but it's only a matter of time before the new White House hopeful stumps on late-night himself.

Jimmy Fallon revived his "Slow Jam the News" segment, this time with Jeb Bush on backup. »

186 days until Star Wars: 'Return of the Jedi' cast don't know what Ewoks are in rare film

15 June 2015 4:32 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In 1982, a strange video was created during the filming of “Return of the Jedi.” A pseudo-documentary starring 11-year old Warwick Davis, “Return of the Ewok” is a fictional account of how the boy landed his role as Wicket and came to be part of the final Star Wars film. Clocking in at 24 minutes, the rare behind-the-scenes footage includes cameos by Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher…all in costume. You can watch the glorified home video in its entirety below, but the footage of the main cast begins around the 7:30 minute mark. In costume, Davis approaches Harrison Ford’s trailer for advice non where Ewoks live, but the actor has no idea what an Ewok is. Neither Hamill nor Fisher have any clue either, though Carrie takes the initiative and sends Davis to probable doom in the wastes of Tatooine.  Should you choose to follow Warwick Davis' »

Official Look At The Star Wars: The Force Awakens 'First Order Stormtrooper' Toys

11 June 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Here we have the 9-inch Lego Buildable First Order Stormtrooper, Hasbro’s Black Series 6-inch First Order Stormtrooper, and Mattel’s Hot Wheels First Order Stormtrooper Car. I guess you could buy all three and pretend one of 'em is John Boyega's Finn with his helmet on! We don't know a whole lot about these fellas, other than they take orders from Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and are more than likely terrible shots. These toys, along with plenty more Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise, will be available at Comic-Con International from July 8-12, with all the movie-related programming landing on Friday, July 10. Thoughts? Starring original cast members Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker and franchise newcomers, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o and Max von Sydow, Star Wars Episode VII »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Comic-Con Bound and Daisy Ridley Toes Spoilers Line

10 June 2015 8:26 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The Force will be strong at the San Diego Comic-Con next month following today's announcement that Lucasfilm will be in Hall H and bringing a new look at Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens with them.

The official Star Wars website made the big announcement today and teased that J.J Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy will be in attendance to "provide a special look" at Star Wars Episode 7. Special guests will also be in attendance so I would expect Star Wars Celebration attendees Daisy Ridley, John BoyegaOscar Isaac and new droid Bb-8 at minimum to step onto the stage to the tune of thunderous applause. Lucasfilm and Disney can really get the crowd on their feet if Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill also show up.

Speaking of Daisy Ridley, she recently popped up on the Star Wars Report Podcast in a Japanese interview snippet (via »

Early draft of Star Wars reveals who really shot first

9 June 2015 1:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It is one of the larger debates within the Star Wars Universe (although most fans are on the same page). Who shot first? Han or Greedo? Well, according to a recently discovered early draft, it was definitely Han. The scoundrel!

The script was discovered by Kristian Brown of the University of New Brunswick’s library, who stumbled upon the early draft while digitising their library. No one is quite sure how this script ended up at that particular library. “I’ll tell you one thing, right now,” Brown told CBC News. “Based on the script, I can tell you 100 per cent, Han shot first.”

Well, that puts that to rest.

The scene in question is set in the cantina in the original Star Wars. While Greedo is explaining to Han about Jabba the Hutt’s desires to capture him, Han gets the jump on Greedo and shoots him dead. In the 1997 re-edit, »

C-3Po’s new look revealed for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

8 June 2015 12:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following our first looks at Han and Chewie from the second Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, we’ve now got our first glimpse at a new look for C-3Po thanks to some leaked merchandise photos. Looks like the protocol droid needed a new arm since the original trilogy, but couldn’t find a suitable gold replacement. Either that, or he’s borrowed a new limb from Tony Stark…

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Merch Provides Our First Glimpse Of The New-Look 'C-3Po'

7 June 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Thanks to the following snaps of some leaked Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise (via Making Star Wars and /Film), we get some new looks at the likes of Finn, Rey, Chewbacca, Kylo Ren and his Stormtroopers, and the three droids. Most interesting are the shots of C-3Po because as you can see, he's sporting a red arm. The protocol droid has been put through the ringer in previous Star Wars instalments and has needed fixing up before - but what could have happened to him this time around, and why the snazzy color change? Whatever it was, I'm sure it was Artoo's fault. Thoughts?

Ewan McGregor to reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for a new trilogy of films?

3 June 2015 3:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Star Wars rumour mill is in full churn-out mode today with some new speculation coming from the chaps over at Schmoes Know. Looks like Disney aren’t just planning Star Wars spin-off solo movies outside of their main-story trilogy, they also want to create a whole new trilogy featuring a familiar face.

According to the website, Disney are in talks with Ewan McGregor for an “unknown project”, and their source is telling them the project is new trilogy of movies with him reprising his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Star Wars prequels. Their source claims that this new trilogy of films would take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and would see Obi-Wan watch over a maturing Luke Skywalker with appearances from Owen Lars and Darth Maul.

This appears to be speculation at the moment, but if true would suggest that Disney have Nine »

Serkis is Snoke in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

28 May 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He’s been in more movie franchises than a Rancor’s had hot dinners. So it was no surprise to learn character Brit par excellence Andy Serkis had gotten cast in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

The big question… who was Serkis playing? Well, after Gollum, Kong, Caesar and Ulysses Klaw his contribution to the Lucasfilm/Disney universe has finally been revealed…

As you can see, he’s back in the motion capture suit as new creation Supreme Leader Snoke. No details yet on how he’ll eventually look, but it’s guaranteed the character will bear all the hallmarks of a Serkis performance.

StarWars.com released the image via a feature with legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz.

The CGI-enhanced actor takes his place alongside Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and many others when Episode VII – directed by J.J. Abrams – braves the cinematic meteor storm in December. »
