The wait for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is almost over. The highly-anticipated sequel to Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to arrive on December 15 and Lucasfilm is playing this one very close to the chest. We haven't even seen a full-length trailer yet. Just the Star Wars 8 teaser from Star Wars Celebration. But that doesn't mean they aren't going to tease us with some of what we'll see in director Rian Johnson's entry in a galaxy far, far away. Case in point, they have just revealed a brand new walker and massive starship that the First Order is going to put to use in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
The new vehicles from Star Wars: The Last Jedi were revealed during this week's episode of The Star Wars Show. First up is the new First Order walker, which is much bigger than the classic At-at. The new walker, »
The name of Emilia Clarke's mystery character in the still untitled (or is it?) Han Solo movie has been announced, could she be Rey's mom? Lucasfilm has done an amazing job keeping a tight lid on any leaks of information regarding the spin-off, and the project seems to be in good hands with new director Ron Howard, but as the release date nears; some leaks begin to spring up here and there. The news comes after it was revealed that Michael K. Williams will not be in the final cut of the movie due to lengthy reshoots and scheduling conflicts, which is a shame because he would have brought some great acting to the project.
While talking to Vanity Fair, Michael K. Williams let some important information slip out about his recently cut character and Emilia Clarke's character, including her name. Williams said that his alien character had »

It looks as though we may not have to refer to Disney and Lucafilm’s second Star Wars Anthology movie the “Untitled Han Solo Film” any longer, as an image from a Lego Star Wars catalogue has surfaced on Reddit, which seemingly reveals the title to be… wait for it… Han Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Title Revealed? – Han Solo | A Star Wars Story from StarWarsLeaks
Han Solo: A Star Wars Story does seem to make complete sense given the previous Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Anthology film. However, the logo appears to be exactly the same as the image we’ve posted above, which we’re pretty sure is fan made, so either Lego has been scouring the internet for a logo to serve as a placeholder, or this is a rather clever fake…

Oscar season is officially on our doorstep as the 74th annual Venice Film Festival is set to take flight a week from today with the world premiere of Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing.” Recent contenders like “Birdman,” “Spotlight,” and “La La Land” have begun their journeys on the Lido before taking the season by storm.
Commencing in the Colorado mountains next Friday will be the Telluride Film Festival’s 44th Labor Day sprint, where major players like “Moonlight,” “12 Years a Slave,” and “Argo” all unspooled. Other awards season launchpads in Toronto, New York, and Hollywood (AFI Fest) will follow soon after.
Many new films will plant their flags throughout this circuit, while plenty more will aim for strategic exposure after the festival dust settles. The six-month season will be long — longer than usual, thanks to the Winter Olympics — but the reward will (hopefully) be a string of quality prestige films from many of the finest filmmakers in the »

Earlier this month, we reported that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star Kurt Russell had quite the hilarious problem, when he kept referring to Chris Pratt's character Star-Lord as the iconic movie franchise Star Wars, which director James Gunn confirmed on Twitter. Today we have video proof of this hilarious gaffe, with a second gag reel for this superhero sequel, which shows one of presumably many takes where Kurt Russell's Ego the Living Planet keeps referring to Star-Lord as Star Wars, as we can hear a number of other cast and crew members start to laugh in the background.
This gag reel surfaced on Disney Movies Anywhere YouTube, which also features some outtakes of Kurt Russell's Ego kissing many different women, including the bizarre alien ears of a green-skinned female creature. This gag reel also features a scene where Star-Lord, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Drax the »

Ever since she was added to the cast last year, Star Wars fans have been eagerly awaiting any reveals about Emilia Clarke’s mystery role in the Han Solo prequel. The Game of Thrones actress has made sure to choose her words carefully in interviews, with practically the only comment she’s made about the character being: “All I can say is that she’s awesome.” Now, however, we might’ve just discovered her name.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Michael K. Williams – who also revealed that he’s been cut from the movie – briefly mentioned that his character had “a link between Han Solo and Emilia’s character, Kira.” This quote was then picked up by Making Star Wars, who claim that their sources have informed them that the individual Clarke’s playing is named “Kura” instead. While the spelling differs, the fact that a similar name comes »

Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, an animated microseries focusing on the women of the Star Wars universe, was a surprise announcement back at April’s Celebration. Within a couple of months, though, the series was already being released – on both YouTube and the Disney Channel – and seemed to be quite well received.
Fans of the show will be pleased to know then that season 2 will be just as quick in getting onto our screens. While talking with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Jennifer Muro revealed that Forces of Destiny will return in October. She dropped the news when asked which characters would be appearing in the next run.
“I wish I could tell you! You’ll find out in October. It’s been announced that we’ll see Hera [from Star Wars: Rebels], which will be great. I think people will enjoy seeing the characters in the second season.”
Muro also chatted about the positive fan reaction to the series, »

Up until now, everyone associated with the upcoming Star Wars spin-off has been referring to it as "untitled Han Solo movie", but it now appears that we might finally have a more official title »
For years now we’ve known that Lucasfilm was hard at work at creating a Han Solo film. Since then, there has been all kinds of speculation as to what the film could be called…though most have pretty much ended up with two to three different possibilities. There’s Solo: A Star Wars Story, Han Solo: A Star Wars Story, and the incredibly cheesy and (hopefully) less likely Scoundrels: A Star Wars Story.
I think it’s fair to say that most fans expected, when all said and done, for the title to end up with the former two, but of course, we didn’t know. Whenever bringing it up, Lucasfilm would refer to it as the untitled Han Solo film, and given the huge recent director changes, they’re likely going to keep quite on most news for a good while.

The film is based on Patrick Ness’s “Chaos Walking: The Knife of Never Letting Go,” a book that was published in 2008 as the first in a trilogy. It’s set in a dystopian world where all living creatures can hear each other’s thoughts with Holland’s character playing the only boy in a town of men who’s forced to flee with only his dog.
Oyelowo will play the antagonist, Aaron, in the movie.
