Star Wars: Mark Hamill on Being Luke Skywalker, ‘Episode VIII’

15 July 2016 5:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, kicked off proceedings at Star Wars Celebration Europe at London’s ExCel Centre on Friday with an admission.

“People say, “Give us a detail about ‘Episode VIII,’ ” he told the packed crowd. “I know you’ll love the irony that I am contractually forbidden to do so.”

When we last saw Luke Skywalker at the end of “The Force Awakens,” he was hiding out in a Jedi Temple on the aquatic planet Ahch-To. Rey (Daisy Ridley) tracks him down and hands him his lightsaber. Then, the movie ends — Hamill doesn’t utter a single word of dialogue in the film. Director J.J. Abrams called the moment “this great long drum roll up to seeing this guy,” but Hamill revealed he was initially skeptical.

“I was nervous,” he continued. “Say I turned and people groaned? But I want to do all movies like that — 30 seconds work and second billing. »

Dead Pigeon on Beethoven Street

25 April 2016 9:44 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The irrepressible Sam Fuller fashions a crime thriller for German TV with his expected eccentricity: old-fashioned hardboiled scripting, freeform direction and bits of graffiti from the French New Wave. Christa Lang is the femme fatale and Glenn Corbett is the twofisted American hero, whose name is Not Griff. And yes, a pigeon does bite the pavement on Beethoven Street, and I tell you, that's one dead pigeon. Dead Pigeon on Beethoven Street Blu-ray Olive Films 1974 / Color / 1:33 flat full frame (for German TV / 127 min. / Tote Taube in der Beethovenstraße / Street Date April 19, 2016 / / available through the Olive Films website / 29.95 Starring Glenn Corbett, Christa Lang, Sieghardt Rupp, Anton Diffring, Stéphane Audran, Alexander D'Arcy, Anthony Chinn.

Veteran Voice Director Kelly Ward Helps Bring Out the Roar in Disney Channel’s ‘Lion Guard’

14 January 2016 2:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Disney Television Animation execs decided to create a series spinoff from the classic film “The Lion King,” they turned to veteran voice director Kelly Ward to ensure the vocal performances in “The Lion Guard” would roar to life.

The series premieres Friday, Jan. 15, with back-to-back episodes beginning at 9:30 a.m. on the Disney Channel.

The Lion Guard,” which has a decidedly ecological spin, follows the exploits of Kion, the Prince of the Pride Lands and the second cub of the original film’s Simba and Nala. He and his friends — a cheetah, a hippotamus, a cattle egret and a honey badger — make up the Lion Guard to protect their homeland.

The series initially kicked off with a TV movie, “The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar,” last November. It drew impressive ratings for the Disney Channel, averaging 5.358 million viewers, according to Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates.
