International titles for Star Wars: Episode VIII reveal The Last Jedi is plural

18 February 2017 5:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

From the moment the title was announced last month, there’s been intense debate as to whether the ‘Last Jedi’ in Star Wars: The Last Jedi relates to Luke Skywalker, or if it’s referring to more than one Jedi.

Well, it seems we now have our answer, as the French, Italian and Spanish language posters have revealed the international titles as Les Derniers Jedi, Gli Ultimi Jedi and Los Ultimos Jedi, with ‘Les’, ‘Gli’ and ‘Los’ being used when the following noun is plural.

So, given that it’s plural, we’re presumably we’re talking about Luke and Rey with ‘The Last Jedi’, seeing as Yoda told Luke he was the last of the ancient order in Return of the Jedi, and Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren slaughtered Luke’s new recruits prior to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Or is it possible there »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story video breaks down Ilm’s Oscar-nominated VFX work

17 February 2017 4:34 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of next Sunday’s Academy Awards, a video has arrived online which breaks down Industrial Light & Magic’s Oscar-nominated visual effects work on Disney and Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars Anthology movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story; check it out here…

From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Rumour: Details on Finn’s mission in Star Wars: The Last Jedi revealed

17 February 2017 7:51 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While we know that Daisy Ridley’s Rey is going to spend much of Star Wars: The Last Jedi training and adventuring with Luke Skywalker, it’s really anyone’s guess as to what roles John Boyega’s Finn and Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron will play in Episode VIII this December, but thanks to Making Star Wars we may have some details as to the adventure Finn will find himself on for the Resistance.

Now, when it comes to Star Wars rumours, a lot of sites churn out speculation (and outright fabrication), but Making Star Wars has proven itself to be extremely reliable, so there’s a good chance this information is accurate. There’s nothing majorly spoilery here, but if you don’t want to know anything about The Last Jedi before its release, you should stop reading now.

Rian Johnson shares Star Wars: The Last Jedi Stormtrooper set photo

15 February 2017 11:20 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson (who has been extremely secretive of the project, as he should be) recently took to Tumblr to share a set photo from the film showing off a line of Stormtroopers marching in formation. Oddly, one of them has his helmet lifted up…

Johnson also teased the film’s presence at Star Wars Celebration coming up in April, saying “We’re coming to Orlando for a Star Wars Celebration panel on April 14th, and I cannot wait.  See you there!”

It is very well possible that Celebration will be the time and place we first get footage of the hotly anticipated next chapter in the beloved saga.

Jimmy Vee succeeds Kenny Baker as R2-D2 for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

14 February 2017 8:59 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the sad passing of Kenny Baker last year, Lucasfilm has now officially announced that Jimmy Vee will be taking over the iconic role of R2-D2 for December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Vee, who also worked uncredited on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, released a statement which reads: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to have worked alongside the legendary Kenny Baker. Kenny was a fantastic actor and taught me all the ‘tricks’ on how he brought R2-D2 to life which I will continue to portray in his honor. I’m so excited to be a part of the Star Wars universe and can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve been working so hard on for the last year.

We're thrilled to announce that #OhSoSmall actor @RealJimmyVee is the new #R2D2!

Luke Skywalker will reportedly feature in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer alongside Leia, Finn and Rey

14 February 2017 2:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As excitement builds for our first peek at Star Wars: The Last Jedi, rumours have been doing the rounds that, much like the marketing campaign for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker will be absent from the teaser trailer. Well, according to Star Wars News Net, that is not the case after all, and Luke will reportedly be one of the featured characters in the heavily-anticipated teaser for The Last Jedi alongside Leia (Carrie Fisher), Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley).

There are rumors that Luke will not be in the first #TheLastJedi teaser. We heard the contrary. Luke, Leia, Finn and Rey will be there…

— Swnn (@StarWarsNewsNet) February 13, 2017

The most likely expected date for a Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser to drop is at Star Wars Celebration which is during April.

John Williams has begun scoring Star Wars: The Last Jedi

12 February 2017 2:34 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

 

In terms of behind-the-scenes talent, composer John Williams remains one of the few constants in each and every Skywalker saga Star Wars film. From A New Hope to The Force Awakens, Williams has left viewers humming his themes long after they’ve left the theater for nearly four decades, and he’s not looking to stop yet.

It’s no secret that Williams is returning to score this year’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as previous updates confirmed that he was well into the writing process, but according to a tweet from producer Robert Meyer Burnett, he’s already begun conducting.

Burnett first tweeted about a Last Jedi scoring session that took place in Los Angeles yesterday and then followed it up a few hours later by claiming that Williams was, in fact, orchestrating and director Rian Johnson “wants to use the score for editing.” Check out the tweets below… »

Even Dame Judi Dench is pestering Daisy Ridley for Star Wars: The Last Jedi spoilers

10 February 2017 4:47 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the best efforts of Josh Gad, Daisy Ridley seems to be keeping any and all details on Star Wars: The Last Jedi close to her chest. However, that hasn’t stopped Ridley and Gad’s Murder on the Orient Express co-star and British screen legend Dame Judi Dench from taking a crack at prising some info from the young actress; take a look for yourself…

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set for release on December 15th 2017 and sees returning cast members Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Billie Lourd (Lieutenant Connix), Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke), Peter Mayhew and Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Tim Rose (Admiral Ackbar), Mike Quinn (Nien Nunb), Simon Pegg (Unkar »

Bob Iger says Star Wars: The Last Jedi is “a great next chapter in the iconic Skywalker family saga”

8 February 2017 2:05 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To be fair, a Disney CEO who has seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi 10 months prior to release isn’t exactly going to publicly bash the mega-hyped blockbuster on social media. However, the tweet embedded below suggests that Disney’s Bob Iger endorses the film as a worthy next chapter in the ongoing Skywalker saga.

Are you jealous that that the CEO of Disney has seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi 10 months before you will be able to? What are the odds that Josh Gad now begins pestering Bob Iger for spoilers? And does the fact he calls it the Skywalker family saga mean Rey is Luke’s daughter? »

The Malfoys Take a Family Trip to Universal Studios and Our Hearts Can't Handle It

31 January 2017 7:57 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at the Universal Orlando Resort was a little more magical this week. In honor of the park's fourth anniversary, some of the film's stars reunited on Monday, and it's got us feeling all kinds of nostalgic. Not only did Jason Isaacs and Tom Felton - who played father and son Lucius and Draco Malfoy - take a trip to Diagon Alley together, but they were also joined by fellow Hogwarts alumni Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) and Warwick Davis (Filius Flitwick). Lewis's fiancée, Angela Jones, also got in on the fun by posing with the group. "Me and the wizarding blond bombshell reunited," Isaacs captioned a selfie of him and his onscreen son. J.K. Rowling then got wind of the reunion and shared one of the group's photos with a heart and lightning bolt emoji.

“Me, @TomFelton & @Mattdavelewis marvel at them getting older as I get younger,” Isaacs tweeted on Monday. “To all the Potter fans who remind us to fight for the light.”

Tom Felton Is Done Playing Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter Movies

29 January 2017 1:18 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite the fact that there are no actual Harry Potter movies on the way, it is actually a really good time to be a fan of the wizarding world that J.K. Rowling created. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is continuing the franchise, with a sequel on the way next year and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child transported fans back to the world with the characters they know and love in the form of a stage play. Or, at least the transcript of a stage play. But with that, there has been some talk of that story perhaps being done as a movie some day. If that does happen, or if any other Harry Potter movies happen, Tom Felton probably doesn't want to return as Draco Malfoy.

Harry Potter Star Jason Isaacs: ‘You Don’t Need to Look Very Far’ to Find the Lucius Malfoys of the World

28 January 2017 12:16 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

With his distinctive sneer, “pure blood” ideology and burning hatred of Harry Potter, Lucius Malfoy — played by British actor Jason Isaacs in the Potter films — is one of the series’ great villains. And on Friday, Isaacs revealed his careful construction of the notorious Death Eater and Voldemort sycophant.

“I was terrified of being bland around all these incredible actors,” Isaacs, 53, said during a panel at Universal Orlando’s Celebration of Harry Potter. “I was around the royal family of British actors! I asked for the wig, the robes. They wanted me in a suit with ordinary hair. I tried to come up with the voice, »

Neville Wore a Fat Suit! Plus, Matthew Lewis Gives the Best Underdog Pep Talk Ever

28 January 2017 5:27 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Harry Potter actor Matthew Lewis’s transformation from awkward to this is well documented. But at heart, Lewis says he is still an underdog.

“When you’re younger, you assume everyone who is more experienced or older than you is more assured of what they’re doing, so confident,” the 27-year-old star, who played unlikely hero Neville Longbottom in the eight Potter films, said on Friday during a panel at Universal Orlando’s Celebration of Harry Potter. “But ultimately we’re all just on this planet trying to figure out what the hell we’re doing.

Director Rian Johnson talks inspirations for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

26 January 2017 12:51 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the recently revealed title for the next episode in the saga — Star Wars: The Last Jedi — speculation has kicked into overdrive. Fans are of course pretty darn eager to unravel all the mysteries that Episode VIII might contain, and now thanks to director Rian Johnson, we know of some of the film’s influences.

Speaking to Empire in a wide ranging conversation regarding The Last Jedi, Johnson said the following on what films he watched to prepare for making his Star Wars debut.

“Twelve O’Clock High was a big touchstone, for the feel and look of the aerial combat as well as the dynamic between the pilots. Three Outlaw Samurai for the feel of the sword-fighting, and the general sense of pulpy fun. And To Catch A Thief was a great film to rewatch, for the romantic scale and grandeur”.
