New VFX video breaks down Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’s epic space battle

22 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you a VFX reel looking at the digital recreation of Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now we’ve got another video, this time breaking down Ilm’s work on the spectacular space battle above Scarif. Take a look here…

From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.

Original Chewbacca Actor Peter Mayhew Won't Return in Han Solo

21 February 2017 1:15 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The general consensus seems to be that the Disney era of Star Wars has been pretty great so far. Different, but great. The new Star Wars movies have been a blend of old and new, which looks to be what the upcoming young Han Solo movie is going to be. There will be one very big "out with the old, in with the new" change this time around as the original Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew will not be playing everyone's favorite Wookiee.

StarWars.com released the first official cast photo for Han Solo: A Star Wars Story today, which featured the gang all together in the cockpit of the Millenium Falcon. Chewbacca can be seen hanging out with Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The man in the costume is Joonas Suotamo, who shared Chewbacca duties with Peter Mayhew »

Rounding up the big news stories from the weekend…

Lando Calrissian And Darth Vader Join The Lion King

Director Jon Favreau has revealed the first casting for his upcoming remake of the animated Disney classic The Lion King, with Donald Glover set to voice Simba and James Earl Jones reprising his role from the original as Mufasa. It marks the latest high profile role for Glover, who is currently shooting Disney and Lucasfilm’s Han Solo Star Wars Anthology movie. Read more here.

More DC Director Woes

Warner Bros. is certainly having a few issues when it comes to directors and the DC Extended Universe. They’ve already lost Michelle MacLaren, Seth Graheme-Smith, Rick Famuyiwa and Ben Affleck, and now comes word that Affleck’s replacement on The Batman, Matt Reeves, has exited talks after failing to agree a deal with the studio. It’s said that there is a chance negotiations could resume, »

Jar Jar Binks’ Ultimate Fate Has Been Revealed

18 February 2017 8:19 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

In the history of hated characters committed to the silver screen, Jar Jar Binks is most likely in everybody’s top five. The go-to worst thing about the Star Wars prequel trilogy, people’s hatred for the clumsy Gungan knows no bounds. Even his importance in the movies seemed diminished following his initial appearance in The Phantom Menace. Sure, he may have been the inadvertent driving force behind the Empire’s rise to power in Attack of the Clones, but by Revenge of the Sith, if you blinked you would have missed him. He hasn’t really been mentioned since the saga was restarted with The Force Awakens, but now we have a concrete answer to what became of him, thanks to the in canon Star Wars Aftermath: Empire’s End novel, due out on February 21st. The Star Wars Aftermath trilogy is something we recommend you crack open, as »

Jar Jar Binks' Ultimate Fate Revealed in New Star Wars Book

17 February 2017 9:04 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Disney purchased all of Lucasfilm back in 2012, one of the things they needed to do was reset the very messy canon. Since they did that, there have been quite a few new novels, comic books and other such expanded universe goodness for Star Wars fans to enjoy. But so far, this content has yet to address one big, sore thumb: Jar Jar Binks. That all changes now, because the upcoming novel Star Wars: Aftermath - Empire's End finally gives us some answers and reveals the fate of the maligned Gungan.

Fair warning, this article contains spoilers for Star Wars: Aftermath - Empire's End. Chronologically speaking, we last saw Jar Jar Binks, as played by Ahmed Best, at Padme's funeral in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. But even with all of the Star Wars content that has been and exists in the time period after that movie, »

Star Wars: The New In Canon Fate Of Jar Jar Binks Has Been Revealed And It's Seriously Depressing

17 February 2017 5:22 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Jar Jar Binks may very well be the most reviled character in Star Wars history, but chances are that you may still feel sorry for him after reading this. Following the events of The Phantom Menace, he showed up for Padme's funeral in Revenge of the Sith and in a few episodes of The Clone Wars. However, it's his role in Attack of the Clones which may be most noteworthy. It was there that as an interim Galactic Senator, he pushed for an act which ultimately weakened the Republic and helped the Empire take over the Galaxy. That wasn't missed by people either as newly released novel Star Wars Aftermath: Empire's End reveals what happened to Jar Jar in the new Star Wars canon since the end of the Expanded Universe. Set between the events of Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, the novel takes us to Naboo, »

Oscars: A History of ‘Star Wars’ Films in the Best Visual Effects Category

16 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ (Courtesy: Lucasfilm)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Star Wars is one of the biggest — if not the biggest — franchises in film history and they have certainly left their mark on the Academy Awards. One of the most consistent categories these space operas have popped up in throughout the years is the best visual effects category, with only one of the films not making the cut between the ceremonies of 1978 and 2017 to varying success. Let’s take a look back at how well the eight installments have done in terms of wowing us with optic splendor.

We have to start with the most recent, just for the sake that it’s currently in contention. That brings us to the Gareth Edwards-directed Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which is nominated in for best visual effects alongside Deepwater Horizon, Doctor Strange, The Jungle Book, and Kubo and the Two Strings. »

Star Wars: Underworld Live-Action TV Show Finally Coming in 2018?

14 February 2017 2:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Right off the top, we need to make it very clear that this may not mean anything, but at the same time, this could also potentially be something for Star Wars fans to get excited about. But only maybe. Recently, an IMDb page for the proposed Star Wars: Underworld TV show wound up on Reddit and interestingly enough, it actually lists a premiere date for the series. So, is Lucasfilm actually planning on bringing Star Wars: Underworld to the small screen in 2018?

As many Star Wars fans may know, Star Wars: Underworld, a live-action series that would have taken place between the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope, was originally conceived back in 2005 by George Lucas. But, the series was ultimately shelved for budgetary reasons. Now, the IMDb page for the series has a premiere date listed as December 15, 2018. On the one hand, »

Holy Sh*t: Rey Could Be a Palpatine in the New Star Wars Trilogy

10 February 2017 1:00 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's been well over a year since Star Wars: The Force Awakens blasted into our galaxy, and we're still processing. While there are some lingering questions about the latest trilogy, one glaring mystery seems to stick out among the rest: who the hell are Rey's parents? While there are plenty of plausible theories, one insane internet claim out there alleges the most unexpected lineage for Rey: she could be related to Emperor Palpatine. Is Rey the granddaughter of the evil Sith Lord? We're unpacking all the most prominent evidence so you can decide for yourself. Her Fighting Style Is Similar Rey's first move in her lightsaber duel with Kylo Ren is a forward stab. This also happens to be the exact same first move Emperor Palpatine executes in Revenge of the Sith. It's also worth noting that these are the only two Force-sensitive individuals to use this form of attack. »

Will Yoda Return in the Han Solo Movie Prologue?

10 February 2017 10:05 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will Yoda show up in the second Star Wars Anthology movie centered on Han Solo? It's entirely possible. And a meeting between Yoda and Han Solo was already supposed to have happened. Now, some are speculating that a deleted scene from the original Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith script, which came very close to shooting, may find its way back into the Han Solo: A Star Wars Story opening prologue.

Jar Jar Binks, Midi-chlorian and the tortured 'Noooooo!' that Darth Vader moans at the end of Revenge of the Sith are the top three most hated things about the prequels. But there's one moment that fans don't even want to admit is real. Rather, they forget about it and pretend it never happened. That scene has Yoda calling Chewbacca an 'old friend'. Yes, Yoda and Chewbacca are besties, and they have been for years. And thanks to George Lucas, »

Rosario Dawson Wants to Play Ahsoka Tano in a Star Wars Movie

8 February 2017 11:27 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The future of the Star Wars movie universe is big, bright and wide. Yes, Disney and Lucasfilm are going to make more saga movies, but given the success of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the playbook is pretty open now to explore other stories from the Star Wars universe. One character that could eventually make her way to the live-action side of a galaxy far, far away is Ahsoka Tano, and now it seems like Rosario Dawson might be interested in playing her.

Rosario Dawson recently had a Twitter exchange that definitely seems to indicate she would be interested in playing Anakin Skywalker's former apprentice in a live-action Star Wars movie in the future. A Twitter user by the name of John Kilker suggested to artist BossLogic, who is fairly well known for his fan art, to do Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano. Her response to that was very receptive. »

Rapid Round with the founders of prosthetics powerhouse Odd Studio

7 February 2017 3:40 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Damian Martin and.Adam Johansen.

The founders of prosthetics and creature effects house Odd Studio, Adam Johansen and Damian Martin, have worked on everything from 'Farscape' to 'Pacific Rim: Maelstrom'. They talk to Harry Windsor about their partnership.

How did you guys meet?

Adam: We meet in .98 on the first season of Farscape. Damian and myself were among the first Aussies to join Jim Henson's crew and the only ones to do all four seasons. It was a fantastic series to work on, with so much creature effects and prosthetic work, and an invaluable experience for all involved, making new aliens and creatures on a weekly basis for four years. We both ended up working on productions like Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones and Revenge of The Sith, the Matrix films and a few others in between Farscape seasons. We worked very well »

Is This Star Wars Rebels Character Rey's Dad in The Last Jedi?

7 February 2017 10:41 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fan Theories are a dime a dozen, especially when it comes to the Star Wars franchise. But lately, fanatics with a little extra time on their hands have been working overtime to crack the code on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And from this has sprung a few interesting ideas. The latest one suggests the perfect father for Rey. And in terms of timelines and character motivation, it all makes perfect sense.

Ever since being cast in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Benicio del Toro has played coy about his role. He isn't allowed to say much, and the character hasn't been revealed. But the actor, who first claimed he was playing a villain, later clarified that his incoming presence falls between the light and dark side of the force. Now, a fan on Reddit claims to have the answers. Their theory suggests that Benicio Del Toro is playing an »
