The Week in Star Wars – Ewan McGregor talks The Force Awakens, Boba Fett in Rogue One, more movies after Episode IX, Kevin Smith’s role in The Force Awakens revealed and more

31 January 2016 9:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Your weekend edition of The Week in Star Wars has a look at the costumes for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Harrison Ford presenting Star Wars Land, more movies after Episode IX and writer-director Kevin Smith’s role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is finally revealed…

We’re kicking things off this week by looking – get this – past Star Wars: Episode IX. When Disney first announced they’d purchased the rights to make more Star Wars movies, they initially announced a new trilogy to take us up to 2019, which was then followed up announcements for spin-off (or Anthology) movies in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (with rumours of a Boba Fett one in there too). It was assumed by the fanbase that this new trilogy would then mark the end of Star Wars. No so, says Disney’s Bob Iger. »

Harrison Ford is coming back to 'Star Wars' -- at Disneyland!

28 January 2016 1:34 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Harrison Ford will be returning to the "Star Wars" franchise in a Disney special that is set to give audiences their first glimpse of the newly planned "Star Wars" land at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.  When fans watched "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in theaters for the first time, they were more than shocked to discover their beloved Han Solo (Harrison Ford) would not be returning to the franchise. I won't give any spoilers on the circumstances of Ford's departure, but if you've seen the film, you know what I'm referring to. Since Harrison Ford is such a beloved part of the "Star Wars" universe, I am happy share that he will not be leaving the extended "Star Wars" family any time soon. He'll be unveiling an exclusive look at plans for the new "Star Wars" land in a special that will celebrate Disneyland's 60th anniversary, titled,  "The Wonderful World of Disney »

Top 10 Disappointing Films Of 2015

18 January 2016 2:26 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2015 offered some terrific films for audiences – The Martian, Creed, Straight Outta Compton, Brooklyn and Star Wars: The Force Awakens to name a few. They were huge crowd-pleasers and very successful at the box office. But not every movie connected with audiences this past year, as much as we wanted them to.

Wamg takes a look at the past 12 months and the movies that we really wanted to love, but just couldn’t. Here we go with our Top 10 list of the Most Disappointing Films of 2015.

Dishonorable Mention: Seventh Son

It’s hard to decipher exactly what Jeff Bridges is saying under his accent that sounds like a cross between Gandalf and Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. And that is only one of the many problems with this film. Seventh Son is nothing but hallow, visual clutter that is cobbled together to form something that struggles to appeal to the »

'Star Wars Rebels' Season 2 Trailer Hints at 'Force Awakens' Connection

15 January 2016 11:19 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, Disney Xd debuted a new preview for the second half of Star Wars Rebels Season 2, which revealed that Princess Leia will make her debut on the beloved animated series. With less than one week left until the Star Wars Rebels mid-season premiere, Disney Xd has released a new three-minute trailer, which features another look at Leia, while teasing the return of Darth Vader and Yoda. Perhaps the most interesting part of this footage is an intriguing connection to the current blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Towards the end of this footage, Ezra Bridger (Taylor Gray) is seen wielding a new lightsaber that has the same crossguard design as Kylo Ren's (Adam Driver) lightsaber from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It isn't the exact same weapon, though, since the blades on Ezra's saber are green and Kylo's is red, but the fact that it has the same design is certainly intriguing. »

7 January 2016 2:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Frank Armitage, an artist and production illustrator who made contributions to Disney classics including “Sleeping Beauty” and “Mary Poppins” — as well as to Fox feature “Fantastic Voyage,” whose visual effects wowed audiences in 1966 — died Monday of age-related causes in Paso Robles, Calif., according to Disney Animation Studios VP of communications Howard Green. He was 91.

He also provided artwork and designs to theme parks around the world.

The native of Melbourne, Australia, moved in 1952 to Los Angeles and found a job at Walt Disney Studios, where he contributed to “Peter Pan” (1953), “Sleeping Beauty” (1959), 1964’s live action-animation hybrid “Mary Poppins” and “The Jungle Book” (1967).

After leaving the company, Armitage worked to apply cinematic techniques to human anatomy. He was thus the perfect person to do the production illustration for “Fantastic Voyage,” the innovative sci-fi film which follows a submarine and its crew that are shrunk to microscopic size so the ship may »

Our Second Look at 'The Force Awakens' begins with Rey's Force and who is awake

6 January 2016 12:40 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The purpose of these Second Look articles is to deep-dive into a piece of text once enough time has passed for us to assume that a good percentage of our readership has had a chance to see something. Considering Star Wars: The Force Awakens has now earned $700 million dollars domestically and is on track to become the biggest domestic grosser of all time sometime this week, I think it's safe to have the conversation now. This is criticism as analysis, as a direct read of the text, the film that we all saw, and not as a value judgment. Let's assume that I enjoyed the film, and that you're reading because you enjoyed the film or because you are curious about the points I'm making. If you're looking for someone to shred the film, that's not this article, and I'll be honest… I'm not interested in having that argument. That's »
