We had a whale of a time live-tweeting the Star Wars The Force Awakens panel at Star Wars Celebration on Thursday, an event that was topped off by a look at the new teaser trailer for the upcoming J.J. Abrams directed sequel in the Star Wars saga. Hit the links to take a look at what went down on Thursday, and to take another look at that fantastic teaser.
For those still here we have a brand new featurette that we’ve knocked together featuring some interviews with the cast of the new film, which were conducted shortly after the panel in the Anaheim Convention Center. Here, we catch up with John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Carrie Fisher, producer Kathleen Kennedy and Abrams himself, who talk about their experience at the convention and working on the new film.

Star Wars Celebration kicked off yesterday with the first panel, where several actors from Star Wars: The Force Awakens appeared on stage, and fans finally got to see the first full-length trailer. Perhaps the most memorable moment of the whole panel, though, was the reveal that lovable ball droid Bb-8 is an actual, practical robot. When Bb-8 was introduced in the first teaser trailer last year, many fans thought and/or assumed that the droid was a digital creation, since it is literally a rolling ball with a head somehow attached. But many fans looked on in wonder as Bb-8 literally rolled out onto the stage. How is this possible? Forbes reveals the company that developed the technology behind Bb-8 is called Sphero, a Boulder, Colorado start-up company.
There’s been talk of Bill Pullman’s return as President Thomas J. Whitmore in Independence Day 2 for a while, but now it’s finally official - although technically he can’t be president anymore, right? Regardless, not only did Roland Emmerich announce Pullman’s return, but he also revealed that Judd Hirsch will be back as well. Hirsch played David’s (Jeff Goldblum) father Julius Levinson in the original. So now the list of returning cast members includes Pullman, Hirsch, Goldblum, Brent Spiner as Dr. Brackish Okun, the kooky scientist at Area 51, and Vivica A. Fox as Captain Steven Hiller’s (Will Smith) wife, Jasmine Dubrow. As for the newcomers, we’ve got Liam Hemsworth as President Whitmore’s son-in-law, Jessie Usher as Steven Hiller’s son (presumably an older Dylan Dubrow), Travis Tope as a character named Charlie, and Charlotte Gainsbourg and Joey King in unknown roles. »

Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram to announce that Lucas Till is set to reprise his role as Alex Summers / Havok in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, with the actor joining an ever growing list of characters in the mutant superhero sequel.
Till made his debut as Havok in 2011’s Matthew Vaughn-directed X-Men: First Class, and also returned for a brief cameo under Bryan Singer last year in X-Men: Days of Future Past. His appearance in Apocalypse means we’ll be seeing Alex and Scott Summers (a.k.a. Cyclops) sharing the big screen for the very first time, with Tye Sheridan (Mud) set to play the younger Summers brother.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 and stars X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) and Lucas Till (Havok) alongside Oscar Isaac »

X-Men: Apocalypse is already confirmed to be set in the 1980s, and it will be the last installment in this new trilogy, after X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Are you starting to feel Star Wars fatigue yet? Or are you getting more and more excited with each new reveal coming out of Star Wars Celebration? Up next, we have two more posters featuring new Sith villain Kylo Ren and his now legendary lightsaber with a franchise-first cross guard that has earned its place in Star Wars lore even before Star Wars: The Force Awakens has had a chance to debut on the big screen. These arrive following three posters from yesterday which revealed Kylo's mask and his army of stormtroopers.
It has not yet been revealed who is hiding under Kylo Ren's mask, or which actor is playing this unique Sith villain said to be as menacing as Darth Vader, but much more deadly. Many suspect that this is the character Adam Driver is playing, while some suspect that he is part of the Skywalker family bloodline. »
The wonderful Ex MacHina will finally expand nationwide, including St. Louis, on April 24. Check out three new posters for the film.
Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company’s brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac).
Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test—charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose »

When Star Wars Celebration kicked off yesterday morning with the opening panel, one of the "surprise guests" in attendance was Princess Leia Organa herself, Carrie Fisher, who showed up along with her Star Wars: The Force Awakens co-stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels and Peter Mayhew. Today, Carrie Fisher returns to the Celebration with her own panel at the Anaheim Convention Center from 1:30 Pm Pt to 2:30 Pm Pt. In case you couldn't make the trek to Anaheim, we have the whole panel streaming live, right here.
Of course, Carrie Fisher needs no introduction to Star Wars fans, since her portrayal of Princess Leia Organa is the stuff of legend for fanboys. The actress was just 21 years old when Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope hit theaters in May 1977, having appeared in just one other movie before that, 1975's Shampoo. She »

You may or may not have noticed that the internet went a little Star Wars crazy yesterday—and rightfully so. On the first day of the Star Wars Celebration convention, director J.J. Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy not only unveiled the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but they brought out the three lead characters (played by John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, and Oscar Isaac), some original trilogy actors (Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, and Anthony Daniels), the new stormtroopers, and even the new droid Bb-8, who I can’t believe is fully practical. If you missed out on the fun, or just want to experience it again, Disney has released a slew of official photos from the event and on-stage happenings. You can check them out below. Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters on December 18th.

Right now in Anaheim, California fans of Star Wars are walking amongst display cases that feature costumes and props from the upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Luckily for the rest of us, they’ve been taking photos. Warning: Spoilers For “The Force Awakens” Beyond This Point. Seriously. While Disney/Lucasfilm approved all these items for display, they each have a tantalizing detail that some could considered ruinous for their movie enjoyment this December. Okay, here we go. All images courtesy of io9 (be sure to go check their comprehensive image list!). *Extra warning: Please respect that many fans have not read fan sites. Any comments talking about what is "going to happen" based on leaks will be deleted. #1: Meet the new generation of X-Wings.

Lucas Till is set to reprise the role of Havok for a third time in Bryan Singer's upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse". The last instalment in this new trilogy, Till had a key supporting role "X-Men: First Class" and a lesser appearance in "X-Men: Days of Future Past".
Till joins returning cast members James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Rose Byrne (Moira McTaggert) and Evan Peters (Quicksilver) alongside new additions Oscar Isaac (Apocalypse), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler}, Ben Hardy (Angel), Lana Condor (Jubilee) and Olivia Munn (Psylocke).
The announcement comes as Olivia Munn has used social media to post a photo that shows off a woman in a latex outfit, albeit only a partial glimpse at said outfit. This has quickly led to suggestion that it's a sneak peek at her Psylocke costume for the film. »

Yesterday, during the Star Wars: The Force Awakens live panel, director J.J. Abrams revealed that the desert planet we see in the new and original teaser trailer is not Tatooine. It is, in fact, a completely different desert planet named Jakku. And we'll get to learn more about this planet, and one epic, defining battle that happened there, with the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront video game, which will hit stores in time for Christmas to coincide with the release of the new franchise sequel.
Yesterday's Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer opened with an awe-inspiring tracking shot across Jakku, which showcased a crashed Imperial Star Destroyer. How did this happen? Dice and Lucasfilm plan to take players into the 'Battle of Jakku' firsthand with a special addition to Star Wars: Battlefront. It will serve as a direct prequel to Star Wars 7, and offers backstory on some »

The stunning opening shot reveals a downed Star Destroyer and X-Wing on the planet "Jakku" (I still think it'll end up being Tatooine), as what appears to be Rey's "bumper car" speeds along in the distance. We'd heard she resided in a fallen At-at walker... will the gigantic Imperial ship actually be her home? As Luke's voice-over kicks in we see flashes of Vader's charred helmet, what appears to be Luke placing a robotic hand affectionately on R2's head, and a mysterious new character (believed to be Lupita Nyong’o’s Rose) handing Princess Queen Leia Anakin Skywalker's original lightsaber, which was passed on to Luke by Obi Wan. Next we see Oscar Isaac's "best fricken pilot in the galaxy", Poe Dameron, whooping away in his X-Wing. This Resistance fighter (no more Rebellion!) has been sent on a mission by Leia, and when he encounter's John Boyega's Finn, »
