Artist Jacob Bills created a set of Family Guy Star Wars trilogy poster art. Over the years Family Guy has hilariously parodied the Star Wars films in three specials titled Blue Harvest, Something Something Something Dark Side, and It’s a Trap. The style of this art might look familiar to some of you, and that's because it was inspired by artist Tyler Stout. You can see his Star Wars posters here. Bills had this to say in a statement:
First off, let me thank everyone for all the kind words about the Family Guy posters I’ve been working on for the past few years. And you read that right, years… looking back at the first file it was finished in July 2012. Though it took me so long to finish these, seeing everyone enjoying them really makes all the time and effort I poured into them worthwhile.
So, again, »

For a long time Star Wars deleted scenes were as hard to come across as someone who doesn’t love Boba Fett. There were a lot of rumoured moments allegedly left on the cutting room floor, such as the sandstorm following the destruction of Jabba’s Sail Barge in Return Of The Jedi, but aside from the odd on-set photo there was little evidence of these sequences that almost happened in that galaxy far, far away.
Now, thanks to the release of The Complete Saga Blu-Ray and the general sharing of theories on the internet, we can see the moments from all six films that didn’t quite make the finished cut. And boy are there some doozies in there.
Some deleted scenes have found their way into the films in some form over the various re-releases – Episode I on DVD has a longer podrace second lap and the »

The moment we've been waiting for is finally upon us: Emily Thorne comes face to face with her dad (otherwise known as former-terrorist / current grifter, David Clarke) during this week's episode of "Revenge." Unfortunately, it wasn't quite the magical bonding session we'd hoped for. Instead of Emily and David running toward each other in slow motion and then enjoying some locally harvested salmon on the docks of Montauk, Victoria out-schemes Emily and it looks like she's been rendered irrelevant in David's new life. Curious to find out more? Read our recap for all the details!
The Morning After
Most normal people react to attempted murder by calling the local police and eating their emotions in the form of pizza. But Emily? Not so much. Naturally, she assumes that Charlotte Grayson's yet again trying to off her (as she's wont to do) and insists that she has control of the situation. »

Colin Farrell is apparently the latest actor added to the mix when it comes to those being considered for the title role in Marvel's Doctor Strange. He joins names that include Benedict Cumberbatch, Keanu Reeves, Jared Leto and Justin Theroux. Scott Derrickson is directing for a July 8, 2016 release. The Wrap In a new interview director Guillermo del Toro says the first draft of Pacific Rim 2 is completed with an eye to start shooting around November next year. He also adds, "Some of your favorite characters come back, some others don't because we have decided that we're going to shoot ambitiously and say 'Let's hope we have three movies.' So some characters come in at the end of the second, hoping that it will ramp up on the third one." Collider Scarlett Johansson has reportedly been offered $10 million to star in the Rupert Sanders-directed adaptation of the Japanese »

Star Wars: Episode VII is around three weeks off completing filming.
The Guardian reported that producer Kathleen Kennedy has revealed the film's progress.
She also added that she is "thrilled" to be returning the film series to London with Jj Abrams in the director's chair.
She said: "This continues a long tradition of Star Wars movies being made in London. It goes back to 1976.
"To know that we are now coming back and we will be making the movies once again based out of Pinewood and now we're looking to put together Ilm London, it's rather remarkable that this has come together in less than two years."
It comes as Warwick Davis has revealed that he will be returning to the franchise.
What happens when French drone enthusiasts strap on video goggles to pilot their drones through a forest? Madness! The footage looks like the Endor forest speeder bike chase in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. I wonder if drone racing will take off as a sport, it seems like it should.
About the race event:
Twenty-four competitors raced their drones through the 150 m (492 ft) course, the field made up of quadcopters and multicopters customized for an optimal balance of speed and agility. Having to contend with obstacles such as trees, rival drones, low-hanging branches and sharp contrasts in lighting, the racers darted through the forest at speeds as high as 50 km/h (31 mph).Competing in groups of four, the pilots viewed all the action through goggles, which were fed a stream from micro-cameras built into the front of the drones. The race required them to complete three laps, something Pellarin »

With Star Wars: Episode VII currently in production (and only a few weeks from wrapping), rumors have been flying fast and furious over the last few months. This has caused a flurry of finger-pointing, naysaying, and even hostility between fans over some of the claims...but this is nothing new. The Prequel trilogy were surrounded by rumors as well, so today, I thought it’d be fun to take a trip down memory lane to remember some of the craziest reports that had us all buzzing.
Some of these are just bizarre, and many of the original sites reporting on these things are no longer in action, but some of you life-long fans, like me, will likely remembering hearing about these. I’ve purposefully stayed away from Super Shadow reports (though some of these may have been influenced by him), because he was a known fraud and I wanted to »

It seems a long time now since that picture of the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII was published (although it was only April!), with everyone sitting around on very expensive looking chairs. One person who didn't get a seat was Warwick Davis, who debuted as Wicket the Ewok in Return Of The Jedi. Was he not fearuring in the movie?
Davis also appeared in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and it's now (finally!) been confirmed that he is indeed in the cast of Jj Abrams' new Star Wars film, that's going to be landing in cinemas in December 2015.
Davis has put together a video that brings you up to date...
As of yet, we've no idea what role he'll be taking in the new Star Wars film, »
We know by now that there will be many characters from the earlier Star Wars films reappearing in the highly anticipated Episode 7. Someone else may be accompanying Luke, Han and the other returning originals. Are the Ewoks coming back for another round?
Warwick Davis is a veteran of the Star Wars universe. He played the Ewok known as Wicket in Star Wars-Episode 6: Return of the Jedi(1983),as well as in the Ewok TV films, The Ewok Adventure (1984) and Ewoks: The Battle for Endor (1985).

The English actor confirmed his return to a galaxy far, far away this afternoon in a video posted to the official Star Wars YouTube channel. Warwick Davis has played multiple roles in George Lucas’ Star Wars franchise, including Wicket the Ewok in Return Of The Jedi and gambler Weazel and Anakin’s pal Wald in The Phantom Menace.

A “Star Wars” mainstay is returning to the fold. See photos: 62 Fall TV Actors Ranked by Popularity (Photos) Warwick Davis, who played the ewok Wickett in “Return of the Jedi” and dual roles of Weazel and Wald in “The Phantom Menace,” confirmed that he will have a role in “Star Wars: Episode VII.” Davis broke the news via a video uploaded to the official Star Wars YouTube account. It's unclear what role(s) Davis might play this time, though aside from Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, it's unclear who any of the cast members are playing. The new trilogy is. »

Warwick Davis's strategy of basically daring J.J. Abrams to refuse him has apparently worked out: He's going to have a brief role in Star Wars: Episode VII after all. Davis played Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi and had various roles in Phantom Menace; thinking out loud to IGN last year, Davis mused that in the new film, he could play a bad guy or even a Jedi, adding that "a villain with a lightsaber is the ultimate goal, if that's not asking too much." He just wants people to see his face! Davis cautioned that he wasn't "dying to get back inside an Ewok suit," but after Life's Too Short, he'd probably still prefer it to a frog suit. »

If you weren’t already over the moon about the casting line-up for Star Wars: Episode VII, then you might be excited to hear that Warwick Davis is set to return to a galaxy far, far away. The franchise stalwart has officially signed on to J.J. Abrams’ anticipated first instalment of the new trilogy.
Davis will be recognisable to the Star Wars fan community as he appeared in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, The Ewok Adventure and Ewoks: The Battle For Endor as much-loved ewok, Wicket. That’s not to say he’ll be reprising that role for the new movie. Lest we forget, he also cropped up in the prequel trilogy. In Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, he took on two brief roles; one as Anakin’s childhood friend Wald, and the other as arms dealer Weazel.

With a number of other iconic actors and actresses already set to reappear, including Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford, the return of Davis is sure to spark even more excitement around the Star Wars community.

Is this the return of Wicket? Warwick Davis, who was only 11 years old when he won the part of Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi, has been tapped to return to the galaxy far, far away for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. Lucasfilm made the announcement with this video: Meanwhile, at the Davis residence… #StarWarsVII https://t.co/i9ChKEtNb0 — Star Wars (@starwars) October 16, 2014 In addition to Return of the Jedi, the 3-foot-6 actor has impressive geek cred in the movies, having played the title role of Willow in Ron Howard's 1988 fantasy adventure, Professor Flitwick »

Warwick Davis has been joking about returning to the Star Wars universe for "Episode VII" for quite a while now during interviews and at various fan conventions etc -- but as it turns out, he really is on board. Davis played Wicket in Return of the Jedi, and then again in that dreadful Ewok spin-off movie, and also appeared in The Phantom Menace in a variety of roles. We don't know who he'll be playing in Episode VII yet, but chances are he's either already shot his scenes or is going to very soon, because Producer Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed that production will wrap in about 3 weeks or so. Could the Ewoks be back to terrorize those poor Stormtroopers? I's say it's unlikely, but I guess you never know....they weren't as universally despised as Jar Jar after all! Star Wars: Episode VII stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, »
As most of you Star Wars fans already know, Warwick Davis started his acting career with Return of the Jedi when he was cast in the role of Wicket. Later on in his career, George Lucas gave him a small cameo role in The Phantom Menace. Now J.J. Abrams is bringing the actor back into the Star Wars universe for Episode VII. StarWars.com released a video of Davis humorously making the announcement. There's no word on who he will play in the movie, and it's really kind of impossible to even speculate. But, it's just cool to know that he'll be back hanging out in a galaxy far, far away.
