The First Order on New Banners for 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

9 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's Star Wars mania! Today is "Force Friday" and Lucasfilm has announced/launched toys and goodies and tons of new items for the fans to go crazy over. Found amidst all the buzz and reveals are three new promo banners for Star Wars: The Force Awakens – full-size "quads" (like from the UK), rather than actual posters. Which makes me believe these may just be promo banners or purchasable posters more than official art (plus, there has to be more coming from Drew Struzan). That said, it's very cool to see more imagery. The First Order stormtroopers, a sleek shot of Kylo Ren, and a nice combination of everything in the movie. Here's the new promo banner for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens. How excited are you? You can still catch the second, full teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens here. More soon. »

‘Star Wars’: Anthony Daniels Slams Disney’s ‘Kremlin Attitude’ Over ‘Force Awakens’

11 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Anthony Daniels, the actor who has played lovably finicky robot C-3Po in six “Star Wars” films, has no stomach for the saga’s three prequels, over-reliance on special effects or for Disney’s “Kremlin attitude” when it comes to leaks about the seventh installment in the space epic, a new interview reveals.

Daniels told the Guardian how he was slapped by Disney for an off-hand tweet in which he revealed he had met an actor who plays a character in “The Force Awakens,” the “Star Wars” installment due out this Christmas.

“Immediately I received a message from Disney: ‘Remove the tweet! You’re not allowed to say that!’” Daniels recalled. “Honestly. It’s a kind of Kremlin attitude.”

“The secrecy has been beyond ludicrous,” the 69-year-old actor added. “For heaven’s sake, it’s a movie. When I got the script, it was typed in black on paper of »

The Main Difference Between George Lucas And J.J. Abrams, According To C-3Po

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

Comparisons between J.J. Abrams and George Lucas were always going to appear at some point. Lucas. most recent efforts overseeing Star Wars Episodes 1-3 were widely lambasted, and Abrams is seen as the great hope for rejuvenating the franchise. Anthony Daniels, who has played C-3Po since the very first Star Wars film, has now been explaining the differences between the filmmakers, insisting that Abrams is much more collaborative than Lucas. Anthony Daniels made this admission during his chat with The Guardian, explaining that J.J. Abrams was more willing to listen to his ideas regarding C-3Po and then incorporate them into the film. Speaking about the differences between Lucas and Abrams, Daniels declared: George [Lucas] has changed a lot over the years, but I think he finds it slightly hard to collaborate. He made decisions that I believe might have been better discussed with other people. J. »

For all of the excitement and intrigue swirling around the villainous trifecta of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Disney and Lucasfilm have kept the vast majority of information relating to the trio behind closed doors thicker than the blast doors of the Death Star.

Star Wars: Force Friday Takes Over SuperHeroStuff!

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

  The Force is strong with this Friday...which probably means we should be concerned about its training and how much general anger and fear that the day has. Who are we kidding? It is Friday...the Yoda of all days. Ain't nobody corrupting Friday! This brand new day from Disney and Lucasfilm has been designated 'Force Friday' and is the 2nd day of the year to revel in all things Star Wars. We all knew 'May the 4th' wasn't enough! This Force Friday marks the official release date of all things Force Awakens. We've actually had to sign Non-Disclosure Agreements and all stores get a chance to unload all of the Jj Abrams we've been sitting on. Don't worry...there aren't that many lens flares! So what kind of goodies did we get for Star Wars: The Force Awakens? All sorts of epic awesomeness that cannot be contained or described with meager words. »

Watch Puppies Play with the Bb-8 Toy from 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

15 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The internet's been abuzz with excitement over the new Bb-8 toy from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," which hits shelves today in honor of Force Friday. But could anything possibly make the already-awesome android even better?

The simple answer is yes, especially when adorable puppies are concerned. Vanity Fair had the ingenious idea of testing out the toy with a coterie of cute pups, and as you'll see in the video below, the results are just as wonderful as you'd expect.

Set to a tune that sounds suspiciously like the Mos Eisley Cantina music, the video features a group of puppies sizing up Bb-8, sniffing him, nuzzling him, chasing him, and even being chased themselves. It's almost too adorable to bear.

Check out the video for yourself, and just try not to squeal with delight. (It's impossible.)

Watch this video on The Scene.

Anthony Daniels Says His Eyes "Glazed Over" When He Heard 'Force Awakens' Story, Thinks Secrecy Is "Ludicrous"

15 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you need a class in maintaining hype while balancing the need to keep the product under a veil of mystery, look no further than the machine that is powering "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." We're just coming off an 18-hour  toy unboxing event, in which devoted fans of the franchise were more than happy to be directly marketed to for a day and half, and it paid off. This morning, social media is already filled with pictures and tweets of people going to their latest chain store to buy the hot merchandise for a movie that's not out for four months. When it comes to finding out more about J.J. Abrams's movie, story details are still being closely guarded, but one cast member has had enough. Chatting with The Guardian, Anthony Daniels aka C-3Po is peeved that the powers that be are scrutinizing his communications with fans »

Bb-8 Sphero Toy Poised to Rule Force Friday: Watch it Roll

3 September 2015 9:04 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Tonight at midnight in your city's time zone, Force Friday will officially commence and a slew of new Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens toys will land on stores shelves. There are toys and then there are toys, and of all the toys hitting the market my money is on the Bb-8 Sphero toy to become one of the hottest gifts this holiday season.

Bb-8, as you surely already know, is the new astromech droid that J.J. Abrams is introducing into the Star Wars universe. Rather than looking like a walking trash can as his predecessor R2-D2 does, Bb-8's body is a sphere that rolls along the ground while his head smoothly glides on the sphere as if it were slightly hovering above it.

A company named Sphero that has been selling a remote-controlled rolling ball partnered with Disney and Lucasfilm to develop a new version of »

Anthony Daniels calls the secrecy behind The Force Awakens "ludicrous"

The full force of J.J. Abrams "mystery box" has been lessened somewhat for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but I have to say that I've found the amount of details Disney/Lucasfilm have been releasing to be pretty damn perfect; not too much, but not too little. However one of the cast-members of Star Wars: The Force Awakens has dubbed the secrecy behind the film as... Read More »
