9 Reasons to Be Excited for Star Wars: Rogue One

5 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney and Lucasfilm are getting ready to go full-steam ahead on getting the hype train moving for their next Star Wars movie. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is due out in December, and because it is a Star Wars movie, there will be months of press, details slowly leaking out and mounting anticipation for the follow up to The Force Awakens. But Rogue One is going to be a very different type of Star Wars movie, and Disney has their work cut out for them to help the mainstream audience understand that.

The studio recently got a lot of excitement built up thanks to a massive amount of coverage about the movie from Entertainment Weekly, which got a lot of people on board. Prior to all of the new details that were revealed about Rogue One in that EW spread, we didn't know all that much about the movie. »

It’s official: Han Solo won’t be in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It has been rumoured for some time (though it never seemed likely) that Alden Ehrenreich’s Han Solo could feature in the first Star Wars spin off movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Well, we can now finally put that rumour to rest.

“I’m not sure I’m allowed to do this but I think I should. I can put to bed, Han Solo is not in the movie,” director Gareth Edwards told Extra TV.

Well, that’s that then. Unless of course he’s lying…

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, is the first film in the new standalone movies from Lucasfilm. It tells the story of how a group of unlikely heroes unite to undertake a daring and seemingly impossible mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.

Star Wars: Rogue One Won't Have Han Solo or Hayden Christensen

27 July 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars Celebration didn't reveal nearly as much about the future of the franchise on the movie side of things as fans had hoped, but any news that was revealed got left in the dust in the wake of San Diego Comic-Con. During Star Wars Celebration, there were more interviews than anyone could possibly have kept up with. That being the case, some of those kind of got buried and it looks like some big news got lost in the shuffle. The big news being that Han Solo and Hayden Christensen will not be in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The fan site Star Wars Underworld has uncovered a couple of interviews with Extra from Star Wars Celebration that made these confirmations seperately. Starting with Han Solo, there have been prominent rumors that everyone's favorite smuggler was going to be making a cameo in the movie. It would make some sense, »

Great Job, Internet!: This Star Wars IV scene becomes extra tragic with footage from Star Wars III

22 July 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It’s hard to argue that too much good came from the Star Wars prequels. But the YouTube channel Shahan Reviews makes a strong case that in small doses, the prequels can be quite effective. In a video entitled “Obi-Wan Remembers The Truth,” Shahan inserts clips of the climatic battle in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith into Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. And the results are unexpectedly moving.

Specifically, the video recontextualizes the scene in which Obi-Wan Kenobi tells Luke Skywalker about the Clone Wars. As he explains to Luke that his father was murdered by Darth Vader, Obi-Wan flashes back to his own climatic lava fight with Anakin. “What I told you was true, from a certain point of view,” Obi-Wan later tells Luke in Return Of The Jedi. And this video drills home that tragic reality while also showcasing just how much weight »

Gareth Edwards discusses Rogue One: A Star Wars Story alien creatures Pao and Bistan

21 July 2016 3:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the Star Wars Celebration sizzle reel for Rogue One, we got our first glimpse of two alien creatures from December’s Anthology movie, affectionately dubbed by fans as “Bigmouth” and “Space Monkey”, and now director Gareth Edwards has offered up some details on the two characters, who are actually called Pao and Bistan.

“There was this great design of this creature that’s mouth would open really wide, and he looked like he was really good at giving orders and shouting at people during a battle,” said Edwards with regards to “Bigmouth”, a.k.a. Pao. “I was like, ‘We’ve got to give him that moment in the film,’ and so [Pao] was born out of that.”

As for Bistan, he’s a gunner on a new gunship/troop transport vehicle, the U-Wing: “It’s not necessarily a character that we get to know, but I think he has a very memorable, »

In branching off from Disney and Lucasfilm’s core saga, director Gareth Edwards has been tasked with lending Rogue One: A Star Wars Story an identity of its own, effectively diving deep into the period betwixt Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

Part and parcel of that creative approach will be to put some distance between Edwards’ Anthology movie and the Star Wars movies of old – The Force Awakens included – and could result in Rogue One cutting out a key element of this most prized universe: the opening crawl.

Appearing at last weekend’s Star Wars Celebration Europe, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy was quizzed about the crawl, which looks set to be left on the editing room floor come December: “You know, we’re in the midst of talking about it, »

Late last week, London played host to the annual Star Wars Celebration Europe, heralding scores of new and exciting tidbits for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and beyond.

Chief among them was a three-minute sizzle reel that took fans behind the scenes of Gareth Edwards’ offshoot. It wasn’t the only trailer to be shown in the English capital though, with an extended trailer description confirming that – similar to its treatment of The Force Awakens last year – Disney and Lucasfilm offered up a new peek at Rogue One in motion, unveiling Darth Vader in all his menacing, scenery-chewing glory.

Kathleen Kennedy doesn’t think we’ll see an opening crawl in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

18 July 2016 12:01 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy suggested that the upcoming Anthology movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story may not feature the saga’s iconic opening crawl, and she’s reiterated that stance this weekend during an interview with Et at Star Wars Celebration Europe.

“You know, we’re in the midst of talking about it, but I don’t think these films will have an opening crawl,” said Kennedy with regards to Rogue One and future Anthology movies such as the Han Solo film. “I think that’s what we kind of telegraphed at the beginning of the event today.”

Director Gareth Edwards was less committal, replying that: “I think basically there’s a lot of things that I probably can’t talk about, is probably the safest way to answer that. The idea is this film is supposed to be different than the saga films…the whole crawl »

Many fans were disappointed last night when the second Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer didn't debut on ABC during the Force Awakens behind-the-scenes documentary.

To make up for it, today we have the first reveal of new Star Wars character Galen Erso, played by Mads Mikkelsen.
