A “New” New Hope: Film Preservation and the Problem with ‘Star Wars’

21 July 2014 8:03 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In an episode of The Big Bang Theory (a sitcom lampooning modern “geek” culture with varying degrees of success), physicist Dr. Sheldon Cooper refuses to watch the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series before the Clone Wars movie. He explains, “I prefer to let George Lucas disappoint me in the order he intended.” Though likely unintentional, this offhanded remark reveals the central dilemma of the Star Wars fandom.  Does the franchise “belong” to Lucas or does it “belong” to the public, as an artifact of cultural history? With the 2011 release of the 6-part Star Wars saga on Blu-ray came the announcement that the version of the trilogy available in the set would not be from the original theatrical prints, but the 1997 “Special Edition” versions of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, which include additional scenes and updated technology. Many fans of the franchise see »

7 Possible Reasons Jj Abrams Made 'Star Wars: Episode VII' X-Wings Blue

21 July 2014 5:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Earlier today Jj Abrams continued to fight the good fight of tricking people into donating charity for their own selfish gain. With only one week left to donate to ‘Star Wars: A Force For Change,’ Abrams returned to up sweeten the pot. Now donations not only get you and a friend a trip to the set and a chance to be in the film, but your town gets an advanced screening of Episode VII as well. But while Abrams talks about saving the children or whatever other Lawful Good nonsense, the important thing is happening behind him. Jj Abrams What Did You Do To That Poor X-wing?! X-Wings aren’t blue! Clearly you haven’t done your research…or have you? Here are some reasons — in no particular order of reasonableness — for the change. #1 - Jj Abrams is King Star Wars nerd. He knows that originally the X-Wing squadrons »

X-Wing on set of Star Wars Episode VII Official Shot

21 July 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

In between rumours of a floating Skywalker hand and about a million other pieces of junk from “inside” sources on the set, comes this official video from J.J. Abrams. The Star Wars Episode VII director, at Pinewood studios, unveils an X-Wing in all of its glory. And yes it is an X-Wing. Originally it was suggested that it might be a Z-95 Headhunter, but the official Star Wars twitter account said otherwise. The video itself is promoting the “Force For Change” campaign, which benefits Unicefs network of 14 Innovation Labs, which helps create sustainable solutions to critical issues facing children around the world.  The video is definitely worth a look, especially for the appearance of the Mse-6. Who incidentally, Simon Pegg can do a perfect impersonation of. The X-Wing itself looks absolutely phenomenal. The shape is a bit more rounded, and arguably sleeker than what Star Wars fans are used to, »

Is John Boyega Playing a Classic Character in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'?

21 July 2014 8:29 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, Badass Digest revealed the opening scene and new plot details for Star Wars: Episode VII, which gave us some mild spoilers about the film.

***** Spoiler Alert *****

The site have since updated their previous report, and now claim that John Boyega will play an Awol Stormtrooper who is on a mission to redeem himself.

This unnamed Stormtrooper winds up in the desert, where he meets Daisy Ridley's character. Together; they find a hand that reportedly holds Luke Skywalker's lightsaber. Badass Digest goes onto hint that the desert planet we think is Tatooine is not actually Tatooine, but another desert planet. That doesn't quite match up with the set videos we've seen, which clearly hint at a return to Luke Skywalker's home planet.

It is not known in what state the galaxy is in at the beginning of Star Wars: Episode VII. Or how far the Empire has fallen. Or »

Badass Digest has uncovered new plot details for Star Wars: Episode VII that gives us new insight into John Boyega and Daisy Ridley's characters and the quest they go on.

Imagine the standard Star Wars crawl, and when it ends the camera pans up to the stars. But instead of a spaceship zooming into frame we see... a hand! A severed hand, tumbling through space. A severed hand gripping a light saber.

That hand falls onto a desert planet, where it is discovered by characters who will be our heroes. One is Daisy Ridley. The other is John Boyega, who is playing someone trying to change his path in life (again, »

No Imagination in Rumored 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Plot & First Look at New X-Wing Fighter

21 July 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the weekend a rumored plot synopsis for Star Wars: Episode VII began making the rounds online and now director J.J. Abrams has unveiled the Star Wars: Episode VII X-Wing in support of Star Wars: Force for Change campaign's final week. First the rumored synopsis via Badass Digest, which is said to be a "echoing" the Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope plot. So, I guess it's entirely impossible to come up with something new even when you have a complete universe to explore. So now, if this synopsis is true, Abrams has gone on to remake Wrath of Khan with Star Trek into Darkness after completely reinventing that franchise and with Star Wars he's doing it right out of the gates. Imagine the standard Star Wars crawl, and when it ends the camera pans up to the stars. But instead of a spaceship zooming into frame we see. »

New 'Star Wars: Episode 7' Plot Details Rumored, J.J. Abrams Reveals X-Wing And More

21 July 2014 6:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Production continues on "Star Wars: Episode 7," with everyone working towards a hiatus in August, when the filmmaking team will take a couple of weeks to rejigger plans and schedules to work around Harrison Ford's injury before cameras roll again. And alas, more new details are kicking around about the potential plot, so read on, and obviously, if even vague speculation might ruin everything for you, spoilers ahead.  Just under a month ago, word started circulating that the plot for 'Episode 7' would find Han Solo leading a team of young people through the galaxy to find Luke Skywalker. And over the weekend, Badass Digest added a bit more padding to the rumored storyline. According to the site, 'Episode 7' takes place thirty years after the events in 'Return Of The Jedi,' and will open with Luke's lightsaber-clutching hand floating through space and landing on a desert planet, »

Do We Have The First Star Wars: Episode VII Plot Details?

21 July 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The rumor mill keeps churning away on J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, but if our latest news about the blockbuster turns out to be true, it appears that the notoriously secretive director’s tight ship has sprung a bit of a leak. Some new plot details have surfaced online, courtesy of Devin Faraci at Badass Digest, a typically trustworthy site about big scoops like this, teasing the opening of Star Wars: Episode VII.

If Faraci’s scoop is true, which I’d imagine is the case, the long-anticipated film certainly starts things off on a familiar note, echoing both A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back with its set-up of the new trilogy. As per Faraci:

J.J. Abrams’ Latest “Force for Change” Video Reveals a Star Wars Episode VII X-Wing

21 July 2014 5:34 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The X-wing is a favourite spaceship of many Star Wars fans, especially as it was the mode of transportation used by Luke Skywalker throughout the course of the trilogy, and most notably when he destroyed the Death Star. It’s as iconic as the Millennium Falcon, and it will be making a return in J.J. AbramsStar Wars Episode VII.

In a clever way of raising awareness about the “Force for Change” charity (which supports Unicef’s Innovation Labs and programs), the latest video message from the director – on the movie’s set in London – features a behind-the-scenes look at the London set, and it we see an X-wing, a Rebel pilot and a pretty familiar droid!

It appears to be pretty battle damaged and old looking, perhaps giving us some idea of where the Rebel Alliance will find themselves in Star Wars Episode VII. Could it be that finishing »

X-Wing marks the spot in new 'Star Wars: Episode VII' set video

21 July 2014 5:17 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

A few weeks ago, J.J. Abrams offered fans a chance to win a walk-on role in the new Star Wars movie, and as that contest draws to a close he has unveiled a new clip from the set—this time showing off another old favorite from the galaxy.

It’s a post-Empire X-Wing fighter, dented and battle-burned. It’s even clear that pilot fashions haven’t changed much since the Return of the Jedi days.

Update: As some savvy readers have pointed out, the ship also closely resembles the Z-95 Headhunter ship featured in some of the Star Wars expanded universe stories, »

Rumor: ‘Star Wars Episode VII’ Partial Plot Revealed?

20 July 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Cropped from a fan poster. Not an official poster.

First of all, let’s say spoiler alert.

The following information may or may not be part of the plot for the upcoming “Star Wars Episode VII.” The plot was first revealed by Devin Faraci at Badass Digest.

Given the secrecy surrounding the Star Wars plot, it may or may not be the actual plot. So do expect J.J. Abrams & Co. to just deny, deny, and deny the validity of it. Remember they denied the presence of Khan in “Star Trek Into Darkness” last year?

Nonetheless, the following plot detail is very interesting and a bit spoilerish for those who wish to read on.

So Spoiler Alert!

And here we go.

New Star Wars: Episode VII Rumors Discusses Opening Scene & Other Plot Details

20 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

On Sunday of all days, big Star Wars: Episode VII rumors end up online.  Today's latest rumor supposedly details the opening of the film, how our new characters wind up involved with the old characters, and what Luke's been up to all this time.  While the report doesn't dish on any huge spoilers, some of the details could be considered as such, so read on with caution!

Today's report is coming from Badass Digest (who generally has a good reputation on rumors and their sources), and I'm not entirely sure what I think of them.  From their report: 

Imagine the standard Star Wars crawl, and when it ends the camera pans up to the stars. But instead of a spaceship zooming into frame we see... a hand! A severed hand, tumbling through space. A severed hand gripping a light saber.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" Plot Rumors Arise

20 July 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Quite a lot of spoiler details regarding J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII" have reportedly leaked over at Badass Digest. With the film currently being kept top secret during production, the site has decided to avoid talking serious spoilers. Rather, they say what they are revealing "on a very basic and general level is the premise of Star Wars Episode VII."

Potential Spoilers Ahead

Essentially a severed hand gripping a light saber falls onto a desert planet . There it is discovered by Daisy Ridley and John Boyega who recognise the Jedi relic and try returning it to the proper people.

They meet Han Solo and Chewbacca who are still pilots, but not of the Millennium Falcon anymore. They recognise the light saber belongs to their friend Luke Skywalker whom they haven't seen since the events of "Return of the Jedi". Thus begins a quest to find him.

Star Wars: Endor's Lost And Found Department

18 July 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

What Is This Block Of Text? Hi, my name is Da7e and every Friday I write something about Star Wars. It's usually about sequel trilogy, the spin-off movies or Star Wars Rebels and occasionally, I'm the first one to write about things. Important things. Like this week: wigs.

It’s been an interesting week in Star Wars: Episode VII stuff. All the best things remain unconfirmed whispers on forums and in comments sections. The production has really locked themselves down and I’m getting the general sense that anyone with access to the story has been given a crash course in diverting attention from the sort of details we think we want to know.

I would argue, and have been arguing, that the more we know about Star Wars: Episode VII the better because thats how people interact with things they love endlessly, but I can very easily see the flip side, »

Video: Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert fight over who's the bigger Star Wars fan

18 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Stephen Colbert has long made it known that he’s a master of Tolkien trivia. But now he and fellow comedy news host Jon Stewart are duking it out over factoids from a galaxy far, far away.

Much like the Ewoks and Rebel Alliance midway through Return of the Jedi, Stewart and Colbert join forces for a greater cause: a promotional video for Star Wars: Force for Change, a fundraiser to benefit Unicef in which fans can earn a part in J.J. Abrams’s upcoming film. Stewart proclaims to Colbert that he’s the biggest Star Wars fan, which »
