Star Wars: Rogue One May Shoot Using Panavision 70 For Ultra-Widescreen Experience

28 August 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the lesser-known quirks about the recent teaser trailer for The Force Awakens is that the clip utilizes Instagram’s new-fangled landscape orientation feature that prevents videos from being cut off at the seams. A welcome addition, then, particularly if the Star Wars Instagram feed becomes a bastion of super-short teases for upcoming films.

Looking beyond J.J. Abrams’ sequel, though, and we arrive at the beginning of Disney’s much-hyped Anthology series with Gareth EdwardsStar Wars: Rogue One. Centering on a group of rogue Rebels, the standalone feature will have the motley crew attempt to steal the coveted Death Star plans from beneath the nose of the Empire. But how about the prospect of seeing the galactic heist on the biggest format possible? Well, we just might.

Felicity Jones had already been confirmed, but the studio revealed that Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Alan Tudyk, Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker, Donnie Yen, Riz Ahmed, Wen Jiang and Jonathan Aris will be joining her. Unfortunately, the studio didn't divulge any details about their characters, but Mads Mikkelsen recently shed some light on his role in an interview with the German site Ekstra Bladet, where the actor confirms he isn't playing a villain.

"It is a very important role, as much I can say. No, my character is actually not a bad guy, and then I can not say more. I can also say that the movie will be shot in Iceland and England. And the filming will last for three months."

Production is already under way at Pinewood Studios in London, »

Star Wars: Rogue One could see a major character return

24 August 2015 12:29 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

If reports are correct, a major Star Wars character could be making a return in 2016's spin-off, Rogue One...

Nb: This piece contains a potential spoiler for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

As part of its plans for a whole galaxy of Star Wars films, Disney's set to intersperse full-blown sequels with a separate series of spin-offs, starting with next year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

Will Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin Return For Rogue One: A Star Wars Story?

23 August 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Might we see Grand Moff Tarkin return to a galaxy far, far away? We just may, if the Daily Mail Online is correct. According to them, Peter Cushing will indeed return as the ruthless Grand Moff Tarkin for Gareth EdwardsRogue One: A Star Wars Story. Yes, the legendary actor passed away back in 1994 at the age of 81, but death clearly isn’t quite the handicap it used to be in Hollywood.

Apparently, the plan is to recreate the character with Cushing’s likeness using the latest computer-generated wizardry. “This is one of the most complex and costly CGI re-creations ever,” a source told the site. “Cushing is a pivotal plot line as he was the one to create Darth Vader and there’s a whole backstory that will come out.”

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will reportedly digitally recreate Peter Cushing for Grand Moff Tarkin return

23 August 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from the rumour that Disney is looking to cast a “strong young female” lead for Star Wars: Episode VIII comes a report from The Daily Mail suggesting that Lucasfilm and Ilm are set to digitally recreate Peter Cushing for a return as Grand Moff Tarkin in the 2016 spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

According to a ‘source’ for the newspaper, “This is one of the most complex and costly CGI re-creations ever. They are going through hours and hours of old footage from the horror movies to recreate his legs and feet to produce realistic movements. It is eerie to see someone who has been dead for so long come to life on a screen.”

7 Reasons That Rogue One Could Be The Best Star Wars Film Ever

21 August 2015 10:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With all of the newly announced entries into the Star Wars universe beginning to take shape, only one of them stands out as different from the others, and actually seems to warrant fan’s attention.

That film is Star Wars: Rogue One, a “heist” film that will revolve around a rag-tag group of Rebel soldiers who are tasked with stealing the blueprints of the Empire’s disastrous planet destroying Deathstar. The cast of characters will be new for the film universe, and far more diverse than any other Star Wars movie sans-Force Awakens.

 

Just look at who’s in it: You’ve got Felicity Jones as the leader of “things,” Forest Whitaker sporting the ‘Forest Whitaker Eye,’ Donnie Yen, Alan Tudyk, Diego Luna, Wen Jiang, Johnathan Aris, Mads Mikkelsen as ‘Hannibal the Fannibal,’ and Ben Mendelsohn as ‘That Guy Killed by Bane.’

But what exactly are the reasons behind »

J.J. Abrams On Loving Captain Phasma

18 August 2015 2:43 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Set to be one of the most iconic villains of the new "Star Wars" trilogy is "Game of Thrones" actress Gwendoline Christie in her role as the chrome-plated First Order Stormtrooper Captain Phasma.

Speaking to the press after the D23 Star Wars presentation for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" over the weekend, filmmaker J.J. Abrams was asked by Collider which of the new characters in the film was his favorite. He has a clear winner:

"I can only say that Gwendoline Christie is my favorite. She just killed it. You think, 'Well, what? she's wearing a costume.' But it's a lot to wear and to have a performance when you're wearing that requires a different kind of skill set and an additional talent, and she's got it.

It's an incredible thing to work with her. I am glad that a character has been designed that is visually as stunning as that is, »

Will Biggs Darklighter Feature In Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars: Rogue One?

17 August 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As we learned over the weekend, the cameras are rolling on Gareth EdwardsStar Wars: Rogue One and after the unveiling of the first, brooding cast photo, fan theories are beginning to hit the interwebs thick and fast.

One of the most prominent of the bunch is in relation to one Biggs Darklighter, a member of the Rebel Alliance and X-Wing pilot from the original trilogy. Granted, we know that Rogue One takes places in a time before A New Hope, though one fan has stipulated that Diego Luna is playing a younger version of the cult character.

The comparative shot surfaced on Twitter, and though it’s far from confirmed – or even believable – it would be a nice wink and a nod to the original trilogy from Gareth Edwards’ spinoff.

Check out the side-by-side photo for yourself. Aside from that glorious ‘tach, there’s not much to go on, »

'Star Wars Rogue One': Is Diego Luna Playing Biggs Darklighter?

17 August 2015 11:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During the D23 Expo this weekend, Disney and LucasFilm revealed the first official cast photo for Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, which is currently in production at Pinewood Studios in London. The image gave us our first look at Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Jiang Wen and Donnie Yen, although these characters' identities were not yet revealed. Shortly after the image debuted, an interesting theory started sprouting up, which posits that Diego Luna may be playing a character already established in the Star Wars universe, Biggs Darklighter.

Twitter user Eleven Thirty Ate posted a side-by-side photo of Diego Luna in this new image, and Garrick Hagon as Biggs Darklighter from Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, which suggests that they both have very similar hairstyles and mustaches. That is by no means a full confirmation, but the possibility is certainly intriguing, especially since no details about any of these characters have been released. »
