The Force is strong in Beyoncé. Though the singer doesn't make a cameo in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, she did shape Felicity Jones' portrayal of rebellion leader Jyn Erso. The actress' favorite track? "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)," of course. "Jyn's a single lady," Jones joked in an interview with E! News' Erin Lim over the weekend. To prepare for the role, Jones often found herself watching Beyoncé's Lemonade. "I think she's someone who has incredible power and is devoted to what she does, but she also seems like a very nice person," she said. "I think that's very important to emulate."

Of course Alan Tudyk is in a Star Wars movie. And of course the beloved character actor whose eclectic credits include Firely, Serenity, I, Robot, Death at a Funeral, Wreck-It Ralph, Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, and Frozen would play a seven-foot-tall, antisocial Imperial security droid reprogrammed to serve the Rebel cause and help steal the Death […]

We’re less than a fortnight away from the next instalment of the Star Wars saga, and it seems that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story already has its first positive review – from Star Wars creator George Lucas, no less!
Speaking during a Lucasfilm press conference for the movie, director Gareth Edwards revealed that Lucas say the movie “two days ago” and that “I can die happy now. He really liked the movie. It was the most important review to me.”
Now of course, we probably shouldn’t expect Lucas to come out at this point and say he hates the movie, but he did criticise Star Wars: The Force Awakens for its “retro” tone – although that might have been because Disney and Lucasfilm earlier rejected his own ideas for the Sequel Trilogy.

With its December 16 release date approaching, the cast and crew of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story are out chatting with press about the film (stay tuned for Fandango's interviews in the coming days), and while lots of noise is being made about Rogue One and how truly different and exciting it is for a Star Wars movie (watch our brief footage reaction here), it's impossible not to be curious about the future of Star Wars, too. When Fandango sat down for a chat with Rogue One director...

So a new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story featurette recently hit the web, and in that time, fans have already combed it for the slightest of details. While the fruits of such labors are often minimal in impact, this latest bit of over-speculation may have pulled up something pretty interesting.
I think it goes without saying that the following contains some potentially spoilerific content. If you don’t want Rogue One to be spoiled for you in any fashion, you should probably stop reading.

If you’ll recall, in the first teaser for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we saw the shot above. Most speculation revolved around the hooded figure in the center? Is it Darth Vader or someone else? Since Vader was already confirmed to be in the film, many speculated to be the fallen Jedi himself. But some »

If there is one thing all true Star Wars fans can agree on is that the Force works in mysterious ways for the most part. With Episode VIII just a little over a year away it is that time to start speculating what the movie will entail. After the highly successful release of The Force Awakens last year the biggest complaint from old school Star Wars fans was that it too closely resembled the original trilogy along with the short amount of time Luke was in the film. With so many similarities between The Force Awakens and the original trilogy the similarities between Luke Skywalker and Obi Wan Kenobi seems to be the last piece to connect the new trilogy to the old. The journey that we have seen Luke Skywalker take has been molded from his first mentor. With Luke taking on a more dominant role in Episode VIII »

Last week, Lucasfilm chief and “Star Wars” producer Kathleen Kennedy drew some hefty criticism — including from this writer and this publication — for comments she made in a recent Variety interview regarding bringing female directors into the massive franchise fold.
At the time, Kennedy told the trade that although finding a female director for one of their features was a priority, the studio “want[s] to make sure that when we bring a female director in to do ‘Star Wars,’ they’re set up for success…They’re gigantic films, and you can’t come into them with essentially no experience.” She also added that, because of the perceived lack of female filmmakers with blockbuster experience believed to be essential to making a “Star Wars” film, they were actively looking for appropriate talent. Kennedy said, “We want to really start to focus in on people we would love to work with and »

Gareth Edwards looks tired. It’s the kind of fatigue you see on the faces of filmmakers after they’ve put the finishing touches on major motion pictures and have to summon a second (third? fourth?) wind to survive the press cycle. A stiff breeze could knock him over. But the director of Rogue One: A Star […]

Back in December 2015, just days before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters, LucasFilm president and producer Kathleen Kennedy spoke about the possibility of bringing on a female filmmaker for a future Star Wars movie. As of now, only the third Star Wars spin-off does not have a filmmaker attached yet, although another report revaled Disney is planning on releasing a new Star Wars movie once a year, indefinitely, so there will be a lot of new movies coming in the future. During a press conference for Rogue One, in theaters December 16, Kathleen Kennedy revealed that she has met with a number of female directors.
Kathleen Kennedy previously made a controversial statement that a female director who had no experience with big-budget movies would not be "suitable" for a Star Wars movie. Screen Rant attended a press conference, where that previous quote was brought up, as she was asked why this is the case, »
Star Wars News has spotted a Reddit post which seemingly spills the beans on all of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's surprise cameos. The person who shared the list claimed that their line of work means that the movie's credits made their way on to his desk (so, take this with a pinch of salt for now), and if it's accurate, we can expect to see a fair few familiar faces from the original trilogy in this release. Apparently, Avengers: Age of Ultron actress Ingvild Deila is going to star as a young Princess Leia, and while she's not exactly Carrie Fisher's doppelganger, it's easy to her imagine playing the character. Spencer Wilding and Daniel Naprous are credited with being inside Darth Vader's iconic costume (there go those rumours about Hayden Christensen returning), while British actor Guy Henry (Harry Potter) will play Governor Tarkin.

Though it would seem CGI completely takes over the moviemaking process in this modern era of ours, the folks behind the recent Star Wars films have made it their mission to make practical effects work a top priority. We saw this quite evident in The Force Awakens, and what we’ve seen of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is that it has really taken the torch and run with it. With only about a week and half...

Last week certain sections of the internet got a little upset over some comments from Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy, due to comments she made when asked about the possibility of a female director helming a Star Wars movie.
“We want to make sure that when we bring a female director in to do Star Wars, they’re set up for success,” said Kennedy. “They’re gigantic films, and you can’t come into them with essentially no experience. We want to really start to focus in on people we would love to work with and see what kinds of things they’re doing to progress up that ladder now, and then pull them in when the time is right.”
Several outlets ran stories claiming that Kennedy was showing double standards, and that only women would be excluded due to a lack of experience. We never ran the original story, as »
