When will we see actual teaser posters for Star Wars: Episode VII? We're not sure, but hopefully soon. While we wait there's some fantastic fan-art going around that we felt was worth sharing. Even though these posters were posted in June of 2013, they're still worth taking a look at since we haven't seen them before anyway (thanks to SlashFilm's Star Wars Bits for the tip). A Ukrainian designer on DeviantArt has posted a series of three teaser posters for J.J. Abrams' new Star Wars, complete with old, incorrect release date. The imagery is still awesome and makes for great marketing material, even if it's not actually from the movie. He explains that the art is pretty much all connected to "'after-episode-vii scene[s]'", like the one "with the destroyed and fallen in the sea Empire Star Destroyer" - as seen below. Or "after the Battle of Endor: Death Star »

Disney and Lucasfilm seem committed to their new plans to make not just the upcoming "Star Wars" trilogy and spin-offs part of canon, but all future tie-in material as well like TV shows, books, games and theme park attractions.
They are doing this thanks to a story group which will oversee the future of the Star Wars franchise across all media. Lucasfilm announced that back in April, and now an employee tells Bad Ass Digest that they are "going to redefine longform storytelling". In a lengthy piece on the site, author Devin Faraci says:

Today in Star Wars Bits, we take a look at: Lucasfilm Story Group’s Pablo Hidalgo clarifies his Comic Con “no flashbacks” comment. Were all the recent Episode 7 rumors fake and actually passed off from the Dark Horse comic book series Star Wars: Legacy? Star Wars spin-off director Gareth Edwards accepts the Ice Bucket Challenge in the LucasFilm […]

According to a recent report over on Badass Digest, Star Wars: Episode VII and the rest of the new Star Wars movies in the works will "redefine longform storytelling." They reveal some really interesting details about how Lucasfilm will take the Star Wars franchise a step further than what Marvel has done with their connected cinematic universe.
A Lucasfilm employee told the site, "We’re going to redefine longform storytelling." Not only has the story arc of the new trilogy been planned out in advance, but that story will be incorporated throughout all other forms of media as well. Some of that media will include books, comics, games, and more. The site states that "there have been big meetings setting the future of the Star Wars universe, and these meetings are going to impact everything we see from Star Wars moving forward. Everything."

You don’t know why you haven’t watched it. Your nerdier friends have loved it since it was on PBS back in the day, and you knew a girl in high school who knit her own giant scarf during homeroom because that actor who looked kind of like Harpo Marx wore one when he played “the Doctor.” Maybe you’re like me, and when Doctor Who fandom started pushing Star Wars and Star Trek out of your local comic convention, your adolescent heart turned cold and rejected the low-budget British sci-fi series out of hand.But now you feel out of step. It’s one of those zeitgeist-y Game of Thrones “Winter Is Coming” moments, and you’re on the outside, looking in. You’ve heard that the new (well, newish, the reboot was almost ten years ago) Who is more popular in the U.S. than it’s »

Raucous, rowdy and regrettably scatter-brained, Cem Kaya’s side-splitting essay film “Remake, Remix, Rip-off” marks a noble, albeit disorganized effort to convey the appeal of vintage Turkish pop cinema to the world at large. As with sensory-overload Ozploitation docu “Not Quite Hollywood,” admission is worth it for the clips alone — hailing here from a period when the local industry was unabashedly pillaging Western source material and churning out lackluster riffs on such blockbusters as “Star Wars,” “Superman” and “The Wizard of Oz” — though a keen distrib would do well to sit down with Kaya and try to restructure this unwieldy feast.
Arriving on the centenary of Turkish cinema, mere months after “Winter Sleep” won the Palme d’or at Cannes, Kaya’s sprawling, obsessive undertaking represents seven years of unprecedented research into what is known as “Yesilcam.” (In much the same way Hollywood took its name from a nearby geographical marker, »

"We're going to redefine longform storytelling," a Lucasfilm employee told Devin Faraci at Badass Digest, a comment that will be seen by super-fans of the franchise as something to look forward to. Faraci adds to the comment writing: For the first time in franchise history, the arc of the new trilogy is planned out in advance. They're taking this story someplace, not just picking up the loose ends and figuring out where to go next with each new film. Even with the Prequels, which had a predetermined ending, Lucas was kind of making it up as he went along. That longform vision alone is exciting. But what's more, they're going to weave this story through cartoons and books and comics, making every piece of side story count. Star Wars has too long been a central series of movies surrounded by absolutely disposable books, comics and games. No more. You won't »

Disney and Lucasfilm are working to create a new Star Wars trilogy, a few stand-alone films, a new animated television series following the origins of the Rebellion, plus books, games and even theme park attractions. And from what we’ve heard, the plan is for all of them to interconnect and cross over among one another […]

In a very interesting piece over at Badass Digest (which you can read by clicking on the link below), Devin Faraci drops some interesting details about Disney and Lucasfilm's plans for the franchise moving forwards. While Marvel Studios have connected each of their movies into a shared Cinematic Universe, Star Wars will take that one step further. "We’re going to redefine longform storytelling," a Lucasfilm employee reportedly told the site. What does that mean? Well, not only is the arc of the new trilogy planned out in advance (unlike the prequels, which despite having a predetermined ending, were made up as George Lucas went along for the most part), but the story will be weaved throughout other forms of media as well. We've already seen this with Star Wars Rebels as it's believed that The Inquisitor from that Disney Xd animated series will be connected to a group of »
It's a very good time to be a Star Wars fan these days, with Star Wars: Episode VII currently in production and the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels starting its run on Disney Xd later this fall. A new report from Badass Digest reveals LucasFilm and Disney are planning on tying in this show, and other materials such as the upcoming Marvel comics, into the movie canon.
Here's what an unidentified LucasFilm employee had to say in a brief statement.
"We're going to redefine longform storytelling."
The original Star Wars trilogy spawned the Expanded Universe, a massive series of novels, comic books and video games that told peripheral stories outside of the main movie franchise. We reported in April that the new trilogy will avoid the Expanded Universe story lines, which was confirmed a few days later by LucasFilm in a statement that revealed Star Wars Rebels will be »
"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." Star Wars Rebels takes place between Star Wars: Episode III and IV as the Empire tightens its grip on the galaxy and a rebellion begins to form. The series, executive produced by Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg, and Greg Weisman, »
Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) confirmed earlier this week that production had kicked off on Mission: Impossible 5, and more set photos from the movie have found their way online. The latest once again feature leading man Tom Cruise, but he's now joined by British actor Simon Pegg. He's becoming a mainstay of the franchise since J.J. Abrams' Mission: Impossible III, and both will be joined by a cast which includes Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin and Ving Rhames. Mission: Impossible 5 is set to be released on December 25th, 2015, just one week after Star Wars Episode VII. To see the full gallery of images, head on over to ComingSoon.net. »
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, »

Is “Phineas and Ferb” about to tangle with the Dharma Initiative? Disney Xd’s hit toon series will deliver a “Lost”-themed episode on Sept. 29 with a story by “Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof and a key character voiced by series alum Terry O’Quinn.
The episode, “Lost in Danville,” also features Jane Kaczmarek and Rob Morrow in guest voice roles. Story revolves around a mysterious locked capsule that falls into Phineas and Ferb’s backyard and unleashes something that they can’t control.
The “Phineas and Ferb” episode will air 10 years almost to the day after the island mystery drama premiered on ABC.

HBO has released the first Girls Season 4 teaser, offering fans a very Hannah Horvath-esque first look at the new season. The teaser trailer is just a short bit of footage that shows creator/star/writer/director Lena Dunham riding a bike and then running into a bit of trouble, so it’s more of a heads up than an actual trailer. The teaser also says that the show is currently in production, which isn’t technically true. Dunham confirmed that they wrapped Season 4 last week, so right now Girls is actually in post-production in anticipation of the early 2015 premiere date. Though I know the series has its detractors, I find there’s more to like about it than to dislike mostly thanks to the magnetic Adam Driver. I imagine he’ll have less of a presence this year what with filming Star Wars and all, but the guy turns in »

By the time Star Wars: Episode VII opens next December, I feel like I'll know everything about it. That's not to criticize the film itself; that's just the nature of the online reporting, especially when you cover every trailer, TV spot, Vine, Instagram, Twitpic, and social media technology yet to be invented. However, with where the Star Wars universe is headed, there may be too much to cover. The entire expanded universe canon has been "scrapped" (I don't know if you can say something was discarded when it was never seriously considered by its originator), and Star Wars is starting afresh. But the sequels may be more than a way of launching new tie-ins. Lucasfilm might be trying to legitimately make these tie-ins a rewarding part of the Star Wars experience. Hit the jump for more on the plans for the Star Wars sequels, spin-offs, and more. According to Badass Digest, »

In terms of plot, we don’t really have much of an idea as to what we should expect, but now that the cast has been assembled and shooting has begun, it shouldn’t be too long until we find out more.
The untitled Mission: Impossible 5 also stars Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin and Ving Rhames, and will nicely finish off a busy 2015 when it’s released on December 25th (just one week after Star Wars Episode VII, »
