Lucasfilm Animation has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Star Wars Rebels, which sees executive producer Greg Weisman (Young Justice) discussing his approach to the upcoming animated series; check it out below...
"Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and Tie fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes."

The rumour started after reader Darryl J Wilson posted on Jedi News' Facebook page that the 39-year-old singer, who had lived with Fisher for some time, confirmed that she would be reprising her role in Ep 7.
Wilson also pointed out that Blunt, like Fisher is a well-known prankster, Metro.co.uk reported.
Earlier, Blunt had revealed to Yahoo Music that he struck up his unlikely friendship with Fisher years ago after meeting her in a restaurant in London. (Ani) »

"This idea started with my love of all things pop culture and my love for Star Wars in particular. The illustration that I started with was Rogue Squadron, the idea originally came from the video game of the same name. I was a huge fan as a kid. When I finished that one I immediately had the idea for the other two versions and I have just started a prequel trilogy triptych."
We can expect to see more, and they are guaranteed to give the prequel films more of a badass feel.

The latest picture from the set comes to us from McCrabb's Twitter feed (via Badass Digest). The photo above is a look at the wampa from "Empire Strikes Back" as it would have appeared had Lucas decided to keep the creature in.
The shots with a full-body look at the creature were ultimately redone for the Special Editions, but it didn't appear as big as the wampa we see here.

I used to attempt to build models when I was a kid. I mostly worked with military planes and other kinds of military vehicles and mech robots. They always looked so freakin' cool in the pictures! Unfortunately for me, the finished model ended up looking like crap. I was never satisfied with how they turned out. I just didn't have a talent for building models. I remember that model glue smell though! That was some potent stuff.
Model kit builder Cho Jin Hae didn't seem to have any problems building one of the most badass 1:2,256 scale models of the Imperial II star destroyer from Star Wars. This thing turned out epically incredible! With the added lighting, and insanely meticulous detail, this thing is simply breathtaking.

Visual effects supervisor Scott Squires appeared this week in an online webinar for Moviola.com entitled “Visual Effects on a Limited Budget.” His number one tip? – Don’t fix it in post. The presentation began with a look at the different roles in Visual Effects and the factors to consider when designing shots. Squires, who worked on movies such as The Mask and Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, then spent some time stressing how important planning is, and how shooting it right the first time, rather than fixing it in post, will save you time and money. It’s particularly important to avoid […] »

Jason Statham -- who has made a career out of starring in the same movie over and over again with different titles -- just ain't a fan of the 'ol superhero flick. In a previous interview, when asked if there was any chance he'd appear in the new Star Wars movie, the actor revealed that anything sci-fi/fantasy related just wasn't in his wheelhouse. Now when quizzed about possibly suiting up in a comic book based movie some day, Statham infers that there really isn't a whole lot to them, and that it's all about the Benjamins. "It's all about money, kids pay money to go and see them," the Expendables actor said. "The fascination is superheroes, it's what people want to go and see but you wouldn't get me rushing to the cinema to see those. I like the old-fashioned type of film. They've never offered me a part »

Washington, Dec 04: The blaster pistol that Harrison Ford used in the Star Wars films 'Return of the Jedi' and 'The Empire Strikes Back' is set to go under the hammer at a starting bid of 200,000 dollars.
According to the auction site, the blaster is exactly in its original filming condition and therefore exhibits wear from use, but retains all of the original details, including the flash suppressor and scope, Fox News reported.
The website further added that the blaster is based on a German issue Mauser C96 pistol and was custom-made from resin for the 'Star Wars' films by casting the original hero prop from the first. »

Abrams is just now finding his sea legs in bringing the next thrilling chapter in this sci-fi saga to the big screen, we get Darth Vader sharing his first ever Selfie as he storms Tantive IV in search of stolen Death Star plans.

If you have an extra few hundred thousand dollars lying around, you could could be the proud owner of Han Solo's original blaster that Harrison Ford used in the Star Wars films! It doesn't really look like much now, but it's a piece of cinematic history, and as Indiana Jones would say... "It belongs in a museum!"
Here are the details:
Estimated Price: $200,000 - $300,000
379. Harrison Ford "Han Solo" non-firing Dl-44 Blaster from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. (Tcf, 1980, 1983) Harrison Ford's charismatic smuggler, Han Solo, is arguably the most popular character in the original Star Wars trilogy. The space-scoundrel-turned hero's persona is irrevocably tied to his blaster pistol. Solo was modeled after the rogue gunslingers of the westerns that influenced creator George Lucas. This non-firing blaster was created for The Empire Strikes Back and was also used in Return of the Jedi. »
