R2-D2 Actor Remembered as Star Wars Stars Pay Tribute to Kenny Baker

13 August 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today it was reported that one of the original Star Wars actors has passed away. Kenny Baker, who was best known as the man inside R2-D2, succumbed to a lengthy illness at the age of 83. Since news of his death was announced by his niece Abigail Shield, many stars and filmmakers from the Star Wars universe have come forward to remember the man under the dome.

Mark Hamill was the first from the Star Wars camp to respond. The actor appeared in three movies with Kenny Baker, including the original 1977 Star Wars: A New Hope, 1980's Empire Strikes Back and 1983's Return of the Jedi. Hamill and Baker spent a lot of time together on set, especially during the Empire production. It was Luke Skywalker and R2-D2 who traveled alone to the planet of Dagobah to meet Master Jedi Yoda. And throughout the original trilogy, R2 was often seen as Luke's loyal companion. »

Kenny Baker, Who Originated R2-D2 in Star Wars, Has Died at 81

13 August 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After battling a long unnamed illness, Kenny Baker has reportedly died. The actor, who originated the role of R2-D2 in George Lucas' Star Wars franchise, was just two weeks shy of his 82nd birthday when he passed away, his family confirmed to the BBC. His agent Johnny Mans told the BBC that the actor had been ill for a couple of years, and had been cared for by his nephew. Born in Birmingham, England, Baker lived in Preston. A father of two, his wife, Eileen, died in 1993. She was also an actress, co-starring with him in the 1997 film Wombling Free. »

Kenny Baker, R2-D2 in Star Wars, Passes Away at 83

13 August 2016 11:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The entire galaxy is in mourning today as one beloved member of the original Star Wars universe has passed away. Kenny Baker, perhaps best known as the man inside R2-D2, succumbed to a lengthy illness. He was 83 years old at the time of his passing. Baker's niece Abigail Shield was the first to report the news, telling this to The Guardian.

"It was expected, but it's sad nonetheless. He had a very long and fulfilled life."

Standing at 3-foot, 8-inches, Kenny Baker was one of the few actors capable of fitting inside the body of droid R2-D2, which needed someone to bring the practical character to life back in 1977. He was fully credited as one of the main cast members in the original movie Star Wars: A New Hope, and would return for the next two installments in the first trilogy, 1980's Empire Strikes Back and 1983's Return of the Jedi, »

The Flickering Myth Reaction to the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer

On Thursday, Disney and Lucasfilm released the second trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, December’s hotly-anticipated first standalone movie set in the galaxy far, far away [check out the trailer here if you want to watch it again]. Our writing team was overwhelmingly blown away by the first teaser, but has that excitement carried over to the main trailer? Here’s our reaction…

Chris Cooper: This really gives me the feeling that it’s Star Wars made by people who grew up with it. We get all the props and the right look, but with a new style. A style that at several points here looks stunning. Jyn facing down a Tie. The eclipse. How the Star Destroyers are shot. Beautiful. Really looking forward to this.

Riz Ahmed discusses his character Bodhi Rook in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

10 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story set to arrive on Thursday [watch a teaser here], Riz Ahmed has been speaking to Entertainment Weekly about his character Bodhi Rook, a former Imperial pilot who has defected to the Rebellion.

“A character like Bodhi is not born into the life of a soldier,” states Ahmed. “He’s a pilot working for the Empire, doing his job, getting on with it. But when you put ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, it can freak them out. It can inspire deep passions. So I’m gonna defend Bodhi.”

“Everyone in this Star Wars movie has got quite a complex past”, he continues. “They have a lot of baggage and history to it. That’s part of what makes it an interesting, nuanced movie. It’s taking characters with interesting backgrounds, whether it’s warrior monks, or ex-assassins, or long-distance truck drivers, and you’re assembling this pack of misfits. »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story director Gareth Edwards discusses the planet Jedha, a “holy land” for followers of the Force

9 August 2016 7:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a new trailer set to arrive this week, Gareth Edwards has been speaking to Entertainment Weekly about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, with the director offering up some insight into the planet Jedha, which is set to feature heavily in the film and is described as a “holy land” for those who follow the Force.

“The Force is basically in Star Wars like a religion, and they’re losing their faith in the period that we start the movie,” states Edwards. “We were trying to find a physical location we could go to that would speak to the themes of losing your faith and the choice between letting the Empire win, or evil win, and good prevailing. It got embodied in this place we called Jedha.”

“It’s a place where people who believe in the Force would go on a pilgrimage,” he continues. “It was essentially taken over by the Empire. »

It’s Maui Time in Extended Olympics TV Spot For Disney’s ‘Moana’

8 August 2016 6:50 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If you happened to be tuned into the Olympics last night, you saw a new extended TV spot for the Dwayne Johnson-led Moana, and now Disney Animation has released it online. Their newest venture after the colossal success of Zootopia follows the titular Moana (Auli’i Cravalho), who sails with her hero and companion, the demi-god Maui (Johnson) to a legendary island using her navigational skills. Dwayne looks to play the sweet, goofy, shape-shifting Maui well, hitting a nice counter-note to the brave, venturous Moana to make the perfect pairing.

It promises to be a touching, rousing adventure that should continue Disney Animation’s winning streak, especially in the hands of long-time Disney writer-directors Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin). See the extended TV spot below, along with character photos, for the film that also stars Alan Tudyk, Jermaine Clement, and Nicole Scherzinger.

The Week in Star Wars – More production problems for Rogue One, Star Wars TV series, Han Solo trilogy and more

7 August 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Week in Star Wars is back – and it’s another bumper edition. We’ve got the latest on production issues for Rogue One, a possible TV series, a rumoured Han Solo movie and more…

We’ll kick things off this week with more news on production issues for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story [which got its first TV spot that you can watch here]. You may recall there was a lot of rumours a couple of months ago [read all about that here], and now The Hollywood Reporter are saying Tony Gilroy – was brought on by Disney during the reshoots earlier this year (which he had done for Edwards on Godzilla) – is supervising the edit of the movie. Edwards is still involved in post-production, with the site’s source reportedly stating that: “There are not two separate editing rooms; they are all in there with their ideas. Tony’s a strong force, but they’re all working together.” Now, its not uncommon for directors »

Star Wars Prequel Trilogy Star Confirms Rogue One Cameo

6 August 2016 11:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Do not proceed if you don't want to be spoiled on one of the exciting cameos Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will bring to the big screen this December. Though, this is one surprise you may already be aware of, as it was pretty much revealed by eagle-eyed fans who attended Star Wars Celebration 2016. LucasFilm and Disney released a behind-the-scenes sizzle reel from this first standalone Star Wars spin-off during the big event. And if you looked close enough, you would have spotted a very familiar face looming around in the background, though he was mostly obscured by a camera.

The 'he' in question is none other than Princess Leia Organa's adoptive father Bail Organa, played by the beloved TV and movie icon Jimmy Smits. The character was first introduced in the prequel trilogy, showing up onscreen in the second entry, 2002's Attack of the Clones. He would later »

Jimmy Smits reprising the role of Bail Organa for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

6 August 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We saw from the first trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that Genevieve O’Reilly will be reprising her role as Mon Mothma from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith in December’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now we can officially add another returning cast member from the Prequel Trilogy.

Jimmy Smits, who played Princess Leia’s adoptive father Bail Organa in both Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, has confirmed to CBS’ The Talk that he will be back for Rogue One, stating: “Can you say the word ‘cameo’? Can you say the words ‘small part’?”

Rogue One: Important Prequels Character Cameo Confirmed!

5 August 2016 5:49 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With only four months to go before the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, confirmation of another character (and original actor) from the previous films making an appearance.  This time it's royalty...

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story sits at a point in the Star Wars timeline where it's prime for some iconic character cameos.  The film's first trailer already revealed the return of Mon Mothma, and Darth Vader has also been confirmed to have a small (but significant) role in the film, and many speculated based off a brief glimpse from the Celebration Sizzle Reel that Bail Organa would also be making an appearance. 

Bail comes from the Prequels, the adoptive father of Princess Leia and one of the primary founders of the Rebellion against the Empire.  Today, Jimmy Smits, the actor who portrays the character in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, confirmed »

‘Star Wars’ Alum Confirms Cameo in ‘Rogue One’

5 August 2016 5:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Spoiler Warning for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

A certain “Star Wars” alum has revealed he will be appearing in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”

Jimmy Smits, who played Bail Organa in “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith,” confirmed on The Talk that he will show up in “Rogue One.”

“Can you say the word cameo?” he said laughing. “Can you say the words small part?”

Star Wars fans will know that Bail Organa was the adoptive father to Princess Leia. He also bit the dust in “A New Hope” after the Death Star blows up the planet Alderaan. However, since “Rogue One” takes place before “A New Hope,” Smits’ character has yet to meet his end and is presumably working with the rest of the growing Rebel Alliance.

This won’t be the first time that Smits has returned to his Star Wars role. »

Introducing the Cast of Disney's Moana

26 July 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney's Moana is just a few shorts months away!  Before the animated Hawaiian-themed film hits theaters, meet the rest of the characters that will help Moana and Maui in their quest!

We already know the Demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson) who is half god, half mortal, all awesome! Although, we haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting the rest of the characters in the gorgeous story of Disney's Moana!  Let's find out more about them!

Jemaine Clement (“The Bfg,” “Despicable Me,” “Rio,” “Rio 2,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” Flight of the Conchords) provides the voice of Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab who lives in Lalotai, the realm of monsters. The conceited crustacean wants to be more than a “bottom feeder” and overcompensates for this perceived shortcoming by covering himself in all things shiny.

Rachel House (“Whale Rider,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”) lends her voice to Gramma Tala, Moana’s confidante and best friend, »
