Kevin Smith talks more about Star Wars: Episode VII

7 July 2014 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we brought you the news of Kevin Smith talking about what he saw on the set of J.J. AbramsStar Wars: Episode VII. And while the Clerks director is sworn to the non-disclousure agreement, he took the time out to guest blog for The Hollywood Reporter with some other thoughts of what he saw…

“So we go to the set and they’re actually shooting, and they’re shooting – and I can’t tell you what they were shooting – but what I saw I absolutely loved,” Smith said. “It was tactile, it wasn’t a series of f***ing green and blue screens in which later on digital characters would be added. It was there it was happening.”

“I saw uniforms, I saw artillery that I haven’t seen since I was a kid. I saw them shooting an actual sequence in a set that is real. I walked across the set, »

Two newcomers join the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII

6 July 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year, Disney and Lucasfilm embarked on a talent search for Star Wars: Episode VII, launching an open casting call across the States and the UK which resulted in over 67,000 applications, and now it has been announced that two entrants have secured roles in the eagerly-anticipated sequel.

According to the official Star Wars site American actress Crystal Clarke (The Moon and the Sun) and British actor and parkour practitioner Pip Andersen (who recently demonstrated his skills in a Spider-Man ad for Sony) have both signed on for unrevealed roles in the J.J. Abrams-directed Episode VII.

The Star Wars universe has always been about discovering and nurturing young talent and in casting Episode VII we wanted to remain absolutely faithful to this tradition,” states Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy. “We are delighted that so many travelled to see us at the open casting calls and that we have been able to »

Kevin Smith talks Star Wars: Episode VII, confirms Stormtroopers

2 July 2014 1:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there is one filmmaker who is not hiding his excitement for J.J. AbramsStar Wars Episode VII, it’s Kevin Smith. The Clerks director is currently in the UK touring animated film Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie along with Jason Mewes and his podcast Hollywood Babble-On with Ralph Garman. Before the show last night in London however, Kevin Smith was invited to the set of Star Wars Episode VII, the details of which he spoke about before the Hollywood Babble-On show.

Smith noted that he had signed a non-disclosure agreement so he couldn’t talk any specifics, but he did say that he saw costumes, characters and sets that took him back to his childhood.

Harrison Ford’s broken leg to delay Star Wars: Episode VII?

24 June 2014 1:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although the initial word from Lucasfilm was that Harrison Ford’s injury would not severely impact production on Star Wars: Episode VII, it is now being rumoured via Jedi News that filming could be “pushed back by a substanial amount of time” due to the actor suffering a break to his left leg. According to the site, an Episode VII production team met yesterday to discuss how the shoot will be affected by Ford’s recovery time, and with Han Solo said to be one of the main characters of the sequel, there is now a strong possibility that the film could fail to meet its planned December 2015 release date.

Ford is joined in the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII by returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), while newcomers to the galaxy far, far »

Tom Cruise to cameo in Star Wars: Episode VII?

23 June 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now, bear in mind that this story originates from the British tabloid The Sun, so it’s probably best taken with a rather large pinch of salt. However, according to the newspaper, Tom Cruise (Oblivion, Edge of Tomorrow) is said to be in talks with Lucasfilm about making a cameo in Star Wars: Episode VII. Director J.J. Abrams is apparently keen on reuniting with Cruise, having worked with him on Mission: Impossible III and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol – and the two are said to have met up in London over the weekend. Naturally this doesn’t particularly mean anything, but if it sells a few newspapers, who cares?

Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release on December 18th 2015, with returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by Star Wars newcomers »

12 June 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

AbramsStar Trek cast would be joining the director in a galaxy far, far away, IGN is suggesting that Simon Pegg has filmed a “secret role” for Star Wars: Episode VII, with the Shaun of the Dead star reportedly shooting the part on location in Abu Dhabi.

The unmade Star Wars: Underworld TV show – details surface

12 June 2014 2:51 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As pointed out in a previous news story, it’s a good time to be a Star Wars fan. We have J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars Episode VII currently being filmed, Godzilla director Gareth Edwards directing a spin-off movie and Chronicle‘s Josh Trank doing another. But one Star Wars spin-off that looks like we’ll never see is the live-action TV show Star Wars: Underworld. It had long been rumoured but there wasn’t much really revealed about it – until now.

In a video on his Kickstarter page for his Indiana Jones fan film Army of the Lost Horizon, Stephen Scaia dropped some big hints about what the show might have entailed. “[I was] a big fan of Lucas and Spielberg my whole life, especially Indiana Jones and Star Wars,” Scaia explains on his Kickstarter page. “When I heard there was the thought of a live-action Star Wars show happening, I pushed »

Mark Hamill on returning to Luke Skywalker for Star Wars: Episode VII

6 June 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today we brought you a promotional image for Disney World’s Star Wars Weekends featuring a lightsaber-wielding Mark Hamill alongside Disney mascot Mickey Mouse, and now we have some comments from Hamill about returning to a galaxy far, far away for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII more than thirty years after he last donned the Jedi robes as Luke Skywalker in Return of the Jedi:

“In my mind, there was a beginning, and a middle and an end for me and my association with George’s trilogy. It was firmly in the past. When the prequels came out, I watched from a distance, but I was totally fine,” Hamill tells The Orlando Sentinel, before going on to discuss his preparation for Episode VII. “It was firmly in the past. When the prequels came out, I watched from a distance, but I was totally fine… I’ve altered my diet. »

Millennium Falcon and X-Wing set photos from Star Wars: Episode VII arrive online

3 June 2014 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The guys over at TMZ are very busy at the moment as they have managed to follow up yesterday’s photos from the set of Star Wars: Episode VII with a new and far more exciting batch.

How more exciting? Well, it doesn’t get bigger than the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo’s trusty Yt-1300 freighter.

But wait! There’s more! Not only can you see the Falcon partially complete, but further images show the coolest star fighter to ever exist ,the X-Wing. Is Luke still using the by now surely outdated design? Those who know their expanded universe will tell you that the X-Wing design was superseded by the E-Wing, but many pilots continued to upgrade their X’s to such an extent that E’s were never fully taken on-board.

Head over to TMZ to check them out.
