5 Rules for Designing a 'Star Wars' Character

13 April 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the people most directly responsible for the design of the "Star Wars" prequel is Doug Chiang, so it seemed only fitting that I would hop on the phone with him to discuss "Star Wars: The Digital Collection" the morning after the announcement was made. Before we spoke, Fox sent over a clip from the extras on the "Digital Collection," and in it, Doug talks about lessons he learned from George Lucas about design, lessons that Disney summed up for me in the following bullet points: Rule I: Silhouette As a designer, you can get bogged down in the minutiae of perfect form and proportions. Doug had to learn to think and draw like a kid again. Don’t worry about the details; they don’t define a design. Rule II: The 3-second Rule When the audience sees something new on screen, they have to immediately connect with this new item. »

Go Behind the Scenes of Star Wars With These New Clips

10 April 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With Star Wars: The Digital Collection now available at iTunes and online retailers everywhere we're getting a look at the set's apparently extensive bonus features and documentaries with these new clips. While these are obviously only teases of longer supplements, I actually found the below videos to be full of info I didn't already know (or at least info contextualized in a new way) despite their brevity. Then again, I'm only a casual Star Wars fan (movies only so far for me). We already learned the true color of Han Solo's coat in The Empire Strikes Back and these go a little bit deeper. Both of these videos tease the Star Wars: Discoveries from Inside and Conversations features, which involve sit-downs between key contributors from across the entire franchise. Check them out below. Here is the full list of bonus features for the set: Star Wars Episode I: »

Star Wars Digital Edition Hitting April 10th Loaded With Additional Bonuses

7 April 2015 2:58 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

As the world prepares to completely lose its mind with the release of the new Star Wars film, it is obviously time to try to stir the pot as much as possible. That in mind, the previous films from the franchise are going to be released on April 10th in digital edition, and with some new bonuses to help sucker you in to the purchase.

They also come with the legacy bonus content, and put together, these are impressive releases. I don’t want to overly comment on how many sales the first three episodes are going to get, but if you need to catch up on the universe in general, this is your chance. And, since we’re looking at a new generation who need to get on board for the new film, this is the way to go.

Take a look at all the bonus potential below, and »

The ‘Star Wars’ Movies Are Coming To Digital HD

7 April 2015 1:02 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’ve kind of expected a big Star Wars re-release as the new films start to be pushed into cinemas, and now it has been announced, in a deal between Lucasfilm, Disney and original owners Fox, that the original saga will hit the home entertainment platforms from the 10th of April! Yes, in-three-days 10th of April. If you, like me, own the original trilogy on VHS, the whole saga on DVD in their special edition forms and then the Blu-Rays that hit markets a little while agao, you’ll be wondering why we need to buy them again. Well, it seems that the new digital editions will come with some new ‘never-before-seen’ materials, as well as some old documentaries from time of release, and some new ‘conversations’ with artists.

We’re hearing that you’ll be able to purchase the new editions from the likes of iTunes, Google Play and Amazon. »

Star Wars on digital HD: trailers and pricing announced

6 April 2015 10:35 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Update: all six Star Wars films are out as HD downloads on the 10th April. Prices and trailers have been revealed...

Update: Yesterday, it was revealed that the first six episodes in the Star Wars saga are to be made available to buy digitally for the first time.

The movies will be made available worldwide on the same day - that's the 10th April - along with a clutch of new and old features to accompany each film.

Disappointingly, we'll be getting the later, digitally-modified Star Wars films rather than the original theatrical release.

It's also fair to say that the prices won't please everyone, either; a quick look on Xbox Video reveals that the full set's going for £69.99, while the individual films will set you back £13.99.

In the Us, the prices are $89.99 for the set and $19.99 per episode; if Google's calculator's correct, that makes the American set cheaper than »
