Anthony 'C-3Po' Daniels: On 'Star Wars Episode 7,' 'awful' prequel CG and pesky Ewoks

6 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Anthony Daniels fully embraces his role as C-3Po. He not only played the character in all six feature films to date — and in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming "Episode VII" — but also in animated series ranging from "Droids" to "Star Wars Rebels," and in assorted live-action television appearances. Entertainment Weekly writer James Hibberd spoke at length the actor about his nearly four-decade history with Threepio, covering everything from his initial disinterest in the part to his initial phone call with Abrams about reprising the role. On Auditioning For the Part: “I wasn’t interested in the slightest. In fact, I was being polite by going to meet George Lucas. Can you imagine that? I was polite in the room, but it wasn’t a very interesting conversation because he was collapsing from having met pretty much every actor in England. I wandered in, and I think it was a refreshing »

Anthony Daniels' deep-dive 'Star Wars' interview: C-3Po's past, present and future

16 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

He is the Star Wars constant: Anthony Daniels is the only actor to appear in all six Star Wars films, and next year he will return in a hugely anticipated seventh. As the voice and body of the faithful and fearful C-3Po, the 68-year-old has embodied this character — a role he initially didn’t even want — across TV shows, radio plays, concert tours, and theme park rides.

Below, Daniels talks about the iconic droid’s next appearance in Disney Xd’s fall animated series Star Wars Rebels, which chronicles the formation of the Rebel Alliance leading up to 1977’s Episode IV: A New Hope. »

How George Lucas brought Star Wars to the screen

12 September 2014 7:04 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

George Lucas' 1974 rough draft of Star Wars is now a Titan comic book. Ryan charts the script's evolution from page to screen classic...

It's like Star Wars, but refracted through a strange lens. Here's Han Solo, but he's green, like the Toxic Avenger, and has gills. Here's Luke Skywalker, but he's a powerful general with a white beard and a flinty look in his eye.

All this can be found in what is now commonly called The Rough Draft of The Star Wars, originally written by George Lucas back in 1974. A kind of mid-point between the somewhat vague ideas Lucas first had for his space fantasy movie earlier in the decade, and the fourth draft - which was used as the shooting script for the 1977 film - The Star Wars is a jarring document from the franchise's early history.

Last year, Dark Horse produced an eight-part series of comics based on The Rough Draft, »

Full Details on Scream Factory's Nightbreed Director's Cut Emerge from Midian

3 September 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Well, Nightbreed fans, the moment you've been waiting for has finally arrived. A couple months after the exciting original announcement, Scream Factory has just revealed full details on the two different versions of its Director's Cut Blu-ray release of the film...

...and you're going to be blown away by all the goodies included on the discs.

But first, a few words from the offices of the film's writer/director, Clive Barker!

"The ‘Nightbreed Director’s Cut’ is an entirely different film than the one which was released in theaters," writes Barker's team about the release. "It's 20 minutes longer than the theatrical cut, but it contains over 40 minutes of new and altered footage. Clive oversaw the reconstruction and edit himself, personally ensuring that, at long last, he was able to tell the story he always wanted to tell but, until now, had never been given the chance. Once the scenes were reordered, »

'Star Wars Rebels' Clip: Stormtrooper Attack on Zeb!

22 August 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney Xd's Star Wars Rebels has been rolling out new character videos over the past few weeks, leading up to the one-hour series premiere on October 3. Following our introductions to Hera and Kanan along with the graffiti tagger Sabine, a new clip has surfaced that features the muscle of the group, Zeb, voiced by Steve Blum. Take a look at this scene below, then read on for more details

When the character was announced back in February, it was revealed that Zeb is part of an alien species that has not yet been explored in the Star Wars universe. However, this character was inspired by Ralph McQuarrie's character design for Chewbacca in the original Star Wars trilogy. Zeb serves as the group's strongman, as we can see in the above clip where he has no problem handling a few Stormtroopers on his own.

However, it seems that Zeb also has a problem with authority, »

Star Wars Rebels Zeb Clip: Taking On the Whole Empire by Himself

22 August 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

On Monday, Disney Xd is going to release a new Star Wars Rebels character short for Zeb, the muscle on the Ghost's crew that prefers melee combat to the long-ranged stuff. You don't have to wait until Monday to get a preview of this short as a clip of Zeb in action is ready to be watched below via THR.

Zeb, voiced by Steve Blum, is based off Ralph McQuarrie concept art for Chewbacca before it was revised into the walking carpet we recognize today. He wields an energy staff similar to the one used by General Grevious' personal guards that forces him to fight up close and share his unique brand of humor with foes before pummeling them into unconsciousness.

In the clip, Zeb descends upon a squadron of stormtroopers guarding an Imperial Tie Fighter as a lone and confident aggressor. He dispatches of the troopers relatively easily, but »

Disney’s Marketing Force is with ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Oct. 13 Launch

19 August 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The marketing force is strong with “Star Wars Rebels.”

Disney will promote the Oct. 13 launch of the new animated series on Disney Xd starting Sept. 29 with a one-hour film “Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion,” available first for users of the Watch Disney Xd app.

The animated film will then premiere on Disney Channel on Oct. 3 and Disney Xd on Oct. 6 before the premiere of the “Star Wars Rebels” series on Oct. 13 on Disney Xd.

Disney is giving the show a major push across its channels around the world, making it available in 34 languages in 163 countries.

The move to offer up the “Rebels” movie first on digital devices — tablets, smartphones, computers and set-top boxes – is an interesting one, however — one that borrows from the trend by studios to release homevideo titles two weeks earlier before their discs hit traditional retail shelves through Digital HD.

Doing so will give Disney »

Star Wars: Episode VII Stormtrooper Helmets and More Leaked

15 August 2014 8:38 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

There's a lot of movement on the Star Wars: Episode VII spoilers front that exploded over the past 12 hours with new concept art and prop imagery that leaked into the Internet. As a result, we have what is probably the first look at the new and improved Star Wars: Episode VII Stormtrooper helmets, a new type of Snowtrooper, and description of a third Stormtrooper unlike anything that has been seen in the Star Wars universe to date. J.J. Abrams cannot be pleased.

The leak parade began last night when Indie Revolver shared two pieces of Star Wars: Episode VII concept art. This imagery was originally met with skepticism given they came from an unnamed source, but obvious nods to Ralph McQuarrie's original Star Wars concept art and the professionalism of the new art weren't easy to dismiss.

The first piece of artwork depicts what appears to be a new generic Stormtrooper helmet. »

'Star Wars: Episode VII' Stormtrooper and Snowtrooper Helmets Revealed?

15 August 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier in the week, design artist Tom Hodges, known for his work on previous Star Wars projects, claimed to have seen one of the new Stormtroopers from Star Wars: Episode VII. He was unable to snap a photo, but he did draw a sketch that was quickly taken down by LucasFilm and Disney. Now, the official Twitter of the 510st Legion, the world's definitive Imperial costuming organization, who you may have seen gather as a large army of Stormtroopers and Imperial Guards at Comic-Con, have gotten their hands on what they claim to be a real Stromtrooper helmet as being used in director J.J. Abrams's sequel. The also have concept art for what is either a new Snowtrooper design or a Jungletrooper. Take a look:

Star Wars: Episode VII - Photos of New Stormtroopers

15 August 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Possible Spoilers Below...

It looks like the stormtroopers got a new look in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. These images were posted by Indie Revolver, who says that these are new designs for the stormtrooper and snowtrooper.

If you can't tell from the designs, it looks like they were inspired by the original concept art by Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston. The connected black visor piece of the helmet is one of the most prominent design changes in these that seems to have come from McQuarrie's designs. 

I love that the production designers were inspired by McQuarrie's work. The first time we saw it was with the reveal of the new X-Wing. Even though there is no official confirmation that these photos are legit, I'd like to think that they are because they are pretty damn cool. 

Thanks to 501st Legion for the photos!

Is This the First Look at Han Solo and the Stormtroopers in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'? (Photos)

15 August 2014 6:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ah, "Star Wars: Episode VII" -- there isn't a kernel of new information too small, a rumor too outlandish, to be picked up on the Internet, passed around, and dissected endlessly. Case in point: a series of images have appeared on Indie Revolver that claim to showcase what the new Stormtroopers and Snowtroopers in J.J. Abrams's "Star Wars: Episode VII," as well as the potential wardrobe choices for none other than Han Solo.

Whether or not these are legitimate is anybody's guess. But one thing's for sure: they are really cool.

The Stormtrooper and Snowtrooper designs are really striking; they're very much in keeping with what came before in the original three films, but also new and different and all their own. As more than one commenter has pointed out, they seem to share certain elements with the original Ralph McQuarrie illustrations from the original film. Quite frankly, if »
