This week, much much much less about Midichlorians. I promise.
So much to cover, most of it very very very spoilerish.
Multiple sources suggest that we’ll finally get a The Force Awakens trailer attached to The Hobbit: The Third And Mostly Made Up One this December, cementing in everyone’s minds that May-The-4th-Be-Damned, Star Wars is a December property now. You spend the holiday with your families, you buy Star Wars things, you see Star Wars movie stuff, from here until our generation’s pets die. Seriously, it’s gonna be Marvel May, Marvel 2nds November, Star Wars December for at least 6 years. Disney Forever, I guess.
If you would have told me conglomerates could just buy everything I love and run theme parks, I might have been much more conservative growing up.
Kidding! Kidding! Let’s not politics, because we all know how that ends: Stand-in Senator »
People love seeing Boba Fett escaping from the sarlacc pit — or the sarlacc creature located inside the Great Pit of Carkoon on Tatooine if you want to get technical, you nerd. Last year we posted a piece of fan art depicting Boba rocketing through the air to safety. Today we bring you a similarly themed, and an arguably more epic, piece of art by Cristi Balanescu, which was used for the Star Wars Fantasy Flight games. It seems no one wants to believe the most feared bounty hunter in the universe would just go out like a punk as it seemed he did in Return of the Jedi. So we stand behind the expended universe and acknowledge that Boba Fett was able to survive the grasps of the sarlacc thanks to his Mandalorian armor. Depending on when the standalone Boba Fett movie will take place, we may get to see »

Latino Review has now chimed in with their own spoiler about the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer, which is rumored to debut in the next four to five weeks. According to their sources, the main villain will be revealed for the first time in this short sneak peek.
Apparently, a select group of individuals in Europe were secretly shown the minute long teaser, which is mostly made up of character reveals, both old and new, accompanied by John Williams new version of The Force Theme performed on woodwind instruments. The trailer reportedly ends with a woman's voice whispering 'Wake up!' This is followed by the Millennium Falcom flying towards the audience with its rockets firing. If that's not exciting enough for you, it has now been revealed that one of the characters set to appear in the montage is the main villain, who we've previously »
Word has been getting around that select groups of people have been shown the first footage from Star Wars: Episode VII . The Force Awakens, particularly in the form of a new teaser trailer. From what we've heard, we're going to get brief glimpses of the main characters of the film, as well as a nice and thrilling shot of the Millenium Falcon coming right at you. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, a new report has come in that literally grants us one of our wishes when it comes to this trailer: we're going to get to see the new villain. If Latino Review is to be believed with their latest report, fans in the European screening of the new teaser have come back with remarks that the new villain looks like a cross between, "the red-colored Imperial Guards from Return of the Jedi and Darth »
Yessir, yessir, people in Europe have also been secretly shown the minute-long Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser that we heard rumblings about yesterday which means there are enough people in the world who have seen it to get confirmations about things. Namely, what character flashes we're going to be seeing and if they only include our good guys.
I'm very happy to tell you that our new villain, the "cyborg" or "Inquisitor" depending on when you jumped off the rumor mill, is totally in the teaser.
He's masked (no identity spoilers yet!) and the final design of the mask looks somewhere in between the red-colored Imperial Guards from Return of the Jedi and Darth Reven from Knights of the Old Republic:
Knights of the Old Republic is non-canonical as far as we know, but that doesn't mean I'm not playing it because Obviously, look a the guy (that »
Who knew that the galaxy’s most feared bounty hunter was really just Bob from accounting? This behind-the-scenes photo shows an unmasked Boba Fett lounging between takes with some of the exotic ladies in Jabba the Hutt’s palace. It should be noted that this is Don Bies – who only donned the iconic mask for a few scenes in the 1997 special edition release. The rest of the scenes featuring Fett have Jeremy Bulloch under the costume. Still, this is pretty great – and you can kill an entire afternoon writing wacky pickup-line captions for this photo. When you’re done chuckling, you can then spend an hour watching this excellent documentary From Star Wars to Return of the Jedi, which chronicles Lucas’ efforts to make the original trilogy. The...

Various Star Wars movies, games and TV shows have been canned over the years. The Force was not strong with these...
The Star Wars universe is a dangerous place. For example, ‘man walks into a bar’ gags in Mos Eisley tend to end with unwarranted threats, droid racism, limbs being chopped off, impromptu deaths or – worst of all – rigorous re-editing.
Until the recent Disney buy-out, the world created by George Lucas was just as treacherous for seemingly-exciting projects. Lucasfilm/LucasArts, for a time, became notorious for the number of cancellations under its belt, with films, TV shows and game ideas constantly being chucked out at various stages of their development.
But when did the term ‘countless’ ever stop us trying to count things? Never, that’s when. So we donned a pointy-hooded robe and scoured the desert wilderness of the internet to bring you what we hope is a complete »

Fan Art by Dani Naimare
Last week Disney and Lucasfilm announced the title for J.J. Abrams' Star Wars movie. It will be called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and the fan reaction for that title was mixed. I think it's fine, but there are a lot of people out there that don't like it, but they are just going to have to live with it. This is the first official news that we've seen from the film since the cast was announced. Everything else in between has been lots of fun rumors and speculation.
Star Wars 7 News came across a little bit of news in an interview by Bloomberg, in which Disney CEO Bob Iger talked about how the title came into existence. The Star Wars part of the interview starts at the 10:26 mark in the video below, but here's the quote:

On November 6, it was revealed that the title of J.J. Abrams' upcoming installment in the Star Wars franchise is going to be Star Wars: The Force Awakens -- but not everyone is on board with that title.
As exciting as it is to have a new Star Wars movie on the horizon, the new name has led to some pretty strong debate between people who liked the name and people who hated it.

The What?: It’s a column on Star Wars news and rumors and therefore contains Spoilers and Speculation.
This Week: We get a new title and some new rumored information about where we find Luke Skywalker, seemingly the man waking the Force.
It’s been awhile since we had a new Star Wars Episode title to discuss, and I think I can remember each previous prequel reveal (sadly I have no cognizant memory of Empire or Jedi’s titles being revealed, I was way too into cartoons). “The Phantom Menace” was a big mystery that I don’t remember anyone liking and “Revenge of the Sith” seemed fitting to those of us that knew Jedi was originally Revenge of the Jedi until it was »
If there's one thing I've found after years of writing about movies, it's that sequel subtitles very rarely go down well at first. Remember the backlash for the likes of The Dark Knight Rises? Thor: The Dark World? Rise of the Dawn of the etc etc? It's only after they sink in and people get used to saying/reading them that they're accepted...usually anyway! "The Force Awakens" has so far been met with either indifference or negativity in most camps, but let's be honest folks, it could have been a Lot worse! The title would seem to fit in with a lot of the rumored story details we've heard about, and suggests that after the events of Return Of The Jedi, the last remaining force-user (that'd be Luke Skywalker) did indeed go Awol. His re-emergence will most likely awaken the force not only in himself, but another character (or several? »
It’s official: director J.J. Abrams & Co have finished filming the sure-to-be megahit Star Wars Episode VII. There is even an official Episode title now: The Force Awakens. It turns out the Force just need some ‘me’ time after the events of Return of the Jedi.
Unfortunately, Episode VII won’t be released for another year, which is far too long for Star Wars fans to wait until their proverbial Star Wars itch is scratched. Like nature, the mind of a Star Wars fans abhors a vacuum: crafty spies have infiltrated the set of Episode VII from day one, bombarding the internet with leaked storyboards, costume designs, concept art, and (allegedly) massive spoilers regarding The Force Awakens’ plot.
Until a teaser trailer drops, the insatiable Star Wars fans among us must rely on hearsay for an inkling of what Episode VII might be about. To aid our readers as »

Fans are getting very psyched up as the seventh Star Wars film comes closer and closer to its release date. But many of us get nervous thinking about the prequels and Jar Jar Binks. Can the new films avoid the mistakes of the prequels? Here are 7 things that the new Star Wars films need to remember.
Despite the recent tweet from Anthony Daniels where he says that the next Star Wars film will be the best one ever, even surpassing the series standard bearer Star Wars-Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back, it’s hard to get the taste of the Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones out of our collective mouths. No doubt many people are currently thinking, ‘I hope these new films don’t end up anything like those pitiful prequels’. Here are 7 things that the new Disney-owned series needs to do—or not do—in order »

Earlier today, Lucasfilm and Disney announced the official title of Star Wars: Episode VII: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Soon after, intense speculation began. What does the title mean? And do we already know? There have been a number of different rumors and spoilers flooding the internet over the course of the past year, with story details reaching a fever pitch as principle photography came to a close this past week.
While most of the spoilers up until this point have all been taken with a grain of salt, this new title seems to indicate that there is some truth buried in there. Especially in light of new plot details that surfaced earlier this morning. In fact, if everything we've heard about the movie leading up to this point proves to be true, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a quite encompassing title on many levels, and »
With a little over one year till it hits theaters (December 18, 2015 to be exact), Disney has unveiled the official title of its upcoming live-action Star Wars sequel: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And here's your first look at the title treatment... What immediately jumps out at us is that this is the first time Star Wars has used "The Force" in any of its titles. We've seen references to Jedi, Sith, the Empire and Clones, but the one power that binds both Jedi and Sith together is what's at the forefront of this new trilogy of films, which picks up 30 years after Return of the Jedi. Where has the Force been since we last went on an adventure with Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and friends? The cool thing about the title is that it doesn't reveal...

In case you've been without internet, text messaging, and human contact for the past couple of hours, we just found out that Star Wars: Episode VII has an official title! Say goodbye to Episode VII, and say hello to Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Despite being a good punchline to the fact that the franchise is active for the first time since 2005's Revenge Of The Sith, this title is more than likely a plain sight clue as to what the latest installment in the Star Wars saga holds for us as an audience. Since there's no official explanation just yet, allow us to theorize just what The Force has indeed awoken. The Force Awakens Old Rivalries So thirty years after Return Of The Jedi, the universe is no longer under the Galactic Empire's boot. A relative peace and prosperity movement has lead all of the worlds previously ravaged to »
The highly anticipated Star Wars sequel — "Episode VII," as it's commonly been referred to — has finished principal photography and will officially be titled, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, according to a tweet from Disney.
Director J.J. Abrams and his cast and crew have been working on Episode VII throughout the summer, filming at Pinewood Studios in London, as well as in Abu Dhabi, sparking rumors that Abrams was trying to recreate the desert landscapes of Luke Skywalker's home planet, Tatooine. Production, however, was temporarily put on hold when Harrison Ford »
