Since the launch of The Force Awakens last year, not to mention the fact that Disney has staked out festive release dates for numerous films, the Christmas period has been synonymous with all things Star Wars, and that’ll continue later this year with the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
As the first anthology movie to be released under Disney and Lucasfilm’s newfound arrangement, Gareth Edwards’ spinoff is shouldering a lot of hype and expectation ahead of its December release. But as the wait for Rogue One continues, USA Today has pumped out two new pics showcasing characters from both sides of the moral spectrum.
The first image sees Orson Krennic spearhead a small regiment of Death Troopers, and at least based on the film’s most recent trailer, this is likely pulled from early on in Rogue One when Krennic meets »

We are now less than two months away from “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and it will mark a couple of interesting moments. The release of the film will put the months of rumors about its rough production to bed as fans react to the first “Star Wars” spinoff movie in history, while it will also likely kick off the start of the promotion for Rian Johnson‘s “Star Wars: Episode VIII” which arrives next year.

The Dark Lord of the Sith returns to the big screen this December, with Darth Vader set to make his presence felt in Disney and Lucasfilm’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and director Gareth Edwards has been chatting to USA Today about the excitement everyone felt when shooting scenes with the iconic villain.
“It’s like we’re at the playground again and there’s this hero sort of standing there,” said Edwards. “You end up very respectful of him: Even though you know there’s a guy inside the outfit, you still talk to him like he’s Vader.”
The director went on to reveal that Ben Mendelsohn called him over after shooting one sequence between Vader and his character Orson Krennic: “He went, ‘It’s Darth Vader. We filmed with Darth Vader’. And I was like,‘I know. It’s amazing, isn’t it?’ It was »

Though it is taking a break this week and will return November 5th, Disney Xd and Lucasfilm have released a clip of the next Star Wars Rebels episode “Imperial Supercommandos”.
In the clip, Ezra and Sabine are caught by a group of Mandalorians loyal to the Empire and are given the choice to come with them or die. Mandalorians are some of the toughest warriors in the galaxy who train for war, basically Spartans in the Star Wars universe, so the idea of the Empire having Mandalorians loyal to them is not a good thought. The group’s leader also makes cryptic references to Sabine’s Mandolorian family, raising the question if we will finally learn more about her past.

“He’s not [involved], to my knowledge,” screenwriter David Koepp told Collider. “I’ve had no contact with him.”
Ever since Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney, his input into creations has been very limited. He put forward ideas for Star Wars: Episode VII – later re-titled Star Wars: The Force Awakens – but they were all rejected.
Koepp also offered a brief update on the film’s progress, stating that: “I’m deeply immersed as we speak. All I can say is that there’s lots of aliens and Indy dies at the end (laughs). Lots of hiding in lead-lined refrigerators, aliens, and he dies. Should go over very well. It feels like it has a lot of momentum behind it. »

Doctor Strange, 2016
Directed by Scott Derrickson
A former neurosurgeon embarks on a journey of healing only to be drawn into the world of the mystic arts.
Despite the fact the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a multi-billion dollar franchise, it still seems weird that Stephen Strange has made his way to the silver screen in 2016. Not exactly one of the most popular first-string characters in Marvel cannon, Doctor Strange has had quite the journey to get here (including a rather rubbish TV movie in the late 1970s) and he’s now being played by one of the biggest actors on the planet in Benedict Cumberbatch. But, has the journey been worth it, and how does The Sorcerer Supreme stand up to previous origin stories?

While theme parks in general are meant to be places for family fun and excitement, they can also be very dangerous and sometimes deadly. The later was the case for one unfortunate individual. It is being widely reported this afternoon that a 67-year-old man died after climbing abroad the Star Wars ride at Disney World.
The OrlandoSentinel reports that the man in question actually passed away this past September. He has been identified as Ralph Lyles of Memphis, Tennessee. And he is said to have died after the Star Tours ride at Walt Disney World's Hollywood Studios came to a halt.
Star Tours - The Adventures Continue is a motion-simulator ride that has been a featured attraction at the park since the late 80s. The attraction takes guests through various scenes based on the Star Wars movies. Medical examiners on the scene stated that the man had a pre-existing heart condition. »
Zelda Fitzgerald: Jennifer Lawrence (Serena, above) may star as Zelda Fitzgerald in a project that's under development by Ron Howard's production company. Best known for her troubled marriage to famed author F. Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby), Zelda Fitzgerald was also a writer and in recent years has been reappraised as a unique creative talent. British TV veteran Emma Frost wrote the script. [Deadline] Han Solo: Now that we know Donald Glover will be playing young Lando Calrissian opposite Alden Ehrenreich in the Han Solo stand-alone movie, naturally we wonder about the premise. A new rumor suggests it "will tell how Lando Calrissian lost the Millennium Falcon to Han." The official Star Wars site says young smuggler and gambler Lando lost the...

Cast your mind back to the formative years of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, before the film’s official title was even unveiled, and you’ll likely recall the level of secrecy that Disney maintained for J.J. Abrams’ franchise revival. Everything from plot details to individual character names were on strict lockdown, and even to this day, fans still don’t know the true identity of Fn-2187 Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley).
Online chatter would have you believe that Finn is actually the son of smooth-talking smuggler Lando Calrissian, but the jury’s still out regarding Ridley’s Force-sensitive heroine. Will we discover Rey’s parentage in Star Wars: Episode VIII? Honestly, we still don’t know for sure, but Daisy Ridley continues to drop hints that the sequel will herald the answers we so crave.

You know what? I feel that George Lucas is paradoxically not given enough credit for his contributions to pop-culture, while at the same time given way too much credit. Thing is, projects like Star Wars and Indiana Jones were definitely his babies, and he was a driving force in what makes them so great - from the stories, to the characters, to the tone, to the...

Like Star Wars, Indiana Jones is one of those few film franchises that’s impacted virtually every American has childhood in one way or another. Be it the fedora, the whip, Harrison Ford, or the spirit of high adventure that sticks in our minds, the series is a testament of the human imagination and universal storytelling.
It was with that in mind that in 2007, we were given Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, a film while not terribly horrible, had very little in common with the other films in terms of its strength. I personally came out of that film not angry, but underwhelmed. I didn't hate the film like most seemed to, but at no point in the film did I feel a sense of wonder or excitement even remotely approaching that of the trilogy.
For better or worse, we will be getting an Indiana Jones 5, »

It’s the burning question coming out of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and one that’s spawned many theories since the release of the first chapter of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy last December: just who are the parents of Daisy Ridley’s Rey?
One such theory is that Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso – the protagonist of the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – could be Rey’s mother, seeing as she’s British… she’s female… and, erm… she’s in a Star Wars movie. However, speaking to Vulture, Ridley has pretty much discounted that theory, as well as heavily implying that we’ll discover Rey’s true lineage in Star Wars: Episode VIII next year.
“I mean, I think historically [the Jyn Erso theory] wouldn’t work, because she is … Darth Vader is there … so she would ultimately be my great-grandma,” said Ridley in an interview with Vulture. “No, she would be my grandma. »

So many goodies in the cinemas candy store this upcoming Awards Season! Oh,boy, oh boy.
It’s “Good Movie Season” when we get Hollywood heavy-hitters (both top popcorn entertainment and Oscar wannabees), and the best of the film festival circuit, most recently from Toronto. Many films will have an awards qualifying run in 2016 and open officially in 2017.
While we have not seen some of these (although we have seen some trailers), some movies are sure to disappoint. That said, here is Wamg’s list of highly-anticipated films, both big blockbuster entertainment and seriously meaty cinema.

Once Disney bought Lucasfilm from George Lucas, they rapidly began working on as many of their new intellectual property-haul, as possible. Since then, we've had a new Star Wars film (Force Awakens), several Star Wars Stories in the pipeline, and a 5th Indiana Jones movie. What do all these have in common, outside of the obvious?
None of these movies are getting any input from George Lucas.
In an interview with Collider.com, Screenwriter David Koepp pulled back the curtain on the writing process for Indiana Jones 5. When asked if George Lucas had been involved in the story process, Koepp replied,
“He’s not, to my knowledge. I’ve had no contact with him.”
That's a pretty shocking »

For as long as fans have known of Rey’s existence, we’ve been wondering about her parentage, and The Force Awakens did nothing to clear things up. There’s reference to a family that’s left her behind, and this being Star Wars, the odds seem good that she’ll turn out to be related to someone we know. But all […]

When Disney bought Lucasfilm from George Lucas, everyone kept a friendly door open for him to offer his input, but he politely declined and let others take the reins on “Star Wars.” But still sitting in the franchise stable is Indiana Jones, who will return to the big screen in 2019 in a new film directed by Steven Spielberg, with Harrison Ford cracking the whip, presumably for the last time.

George Lucas hasn't done a whole lot since selling Lucasfilm to Disney back in 2012. But when it was announced that Indiana Jones 5 was happening, it seemed like his old buddy Steven Spielberg would be pulling him in, since they have worked together on the other four Indiana Jones movies. It is starting to seem like that won't be the case this time around though.
In a recent interview with Collider, screenwriter David Koepp revealed that, to the best of his knowledge, George Lucas won't be involved. Being that David Koepp was hired to write the script for Indiana Jones 5, he would probably know if the Star Wars creator would be helping out in some way. Here is what he had to say when Collider asked about George Lucas' potential involvement.
"He's not, to my knowledge. I've had no contact with him."
