Star Wars Lords of the Sith by Paul S. Kemp | Review

24 April 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I was a fan of the Star Wars expanded universe. I got as excited for getting new Star Wars galleys as I did getting a new China Mieville, George R.R. Martin, or Steven Erikson Arc, and Timothy Zahn’s core 5 books in the EU, the Thrawn Trilogy and following duology, are among my favorite chapters of Star Wars history Period from any medium. Even the most enthusiastic fan of Star Wars and the work Del Rey has done with the license, however, will admit there have been lows to go along with highs, many of them seem universally agreed upon, and many others are personal gems or dislikes that make the conversation that much more interesting.  I think it helpful to know where people stand or stood on former works, so with that in mind, along with the Zahn contributions, I really enjoyed what Karen Traviss accomplished with  Stormtroopers, I »

'Nightcrawler' & 'Hunger Games' Stars Target Roles in 'Star Wars: Rogue One'

23 April 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's almost frightening to think that on top of all the Marvel and DC comic book movies are coming out, and how many casting notices (and rumors) go along with each one of those, that we also now need to add the new Star Wars Anthology of films to the list. Not only do we have a new trilogy on the way, beginning with Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens this December, but right around the corner is the first of several planned spinoff films, Rogue One. So far we know Felicity Jones will lead the feature for director Gareth Edwards (Godzilla), and Ben Mendhelson has been rumored for a part, but now it seems we have a little more movement on the film which will be arriving in theaters on Dec. 16, 2016. The Wrap reports Riz Ahmed, partner in crime to Jake Gyllenhaal's Lou Bloom in last year's Nightcrawler, »

Lucasfilm President Was Hesitant to Make 'Star Wars: Rogue One', Plus More Info

22 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Star Wars: Rogue One won't be hitting theaters until December 16, 2016, but we've already got plot details, a teaser trailer, and a whole slew of other information about the development of the project now courtesy of Hero Complex (via The Playlist), including news that Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy was hesitant, at first, to develop the various Star Wars side stories that will be told in the "anthology" films like Rogue One. Set within the preexisting galaxy timeline -- so, sometime between Episode I and Episode VI -- the anthology films will be released during the dead years of the new sequel trilogy, so as to ensure we get a new Star Wars movie every year for at least the next five years. Kennedy acknowledges that franchises and sequels, such as the one she is building, have dominated the film industry over the last decade, a change to the point she »

20 April 2015 2:07 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

At Star Wars Celebration, the first plot details were revealed for the spinoff movie Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, which, as previously rumored, will center on a Rebel Alliance mission to steal plans for the Death Star. Unfortunately, director Gareth Edwards, who attended the panel on Sunday morning, would not confirm rumors that Han Solo and Boba Fett will be a part of the story. Take a look at the first official, albeit brief, plot synopsis below.

"A band of resistance fighters unite for a daring mission to steal the Death Star plans in Star Wars anthology film, Rogue One."

The official logo was also revealed for audience, which you can check out below, and appears to confirm that the official title is Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. LucasFilm's VP of development Kiri Hart, who attended the panel along with producer Kathleen Kennedy and Gareth Edwards, talked about why »

19 April 2015 5:05 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Since replacing Star Wars: Clone Wars on small screens, Star Wars Rebels has ploughed its own successful furrow into the sprawling galaxy far, far away. The show is returning for a second season and a new trailer was unveiled at a panel for the show at Star Wars Celebration. Take a look...Set in the years between Revenge Of The Sith and A New Hope (yes, yes, we know, it’s just Star Wars to so many of us), the show features the adventures of a rag-tag group of rebels – some young, some veterans – who work as Robin Hood types to undercut the growing Empire and help the needy in their home system.Their actions have not gone unnoticed and now the Emperor has decided to put his gloved fist down, dispatching the one and only Darth Vader (voiced, as is law, by James Earl Jones) to take them out. »

"Rogue One" Story Details Confirmed

19 April 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Both Kathleen Kennedy and the official "Star Wars" Twitter account has confirmed a long standing rumor - that the upcoming spin-off film "Star Wars: Rogue One" will be a direct prequel to the original 1977 "Star Wars". Kennedy made the announcement at the "Star Wars Celebration" convention in Anaheim two hours ago.

Set between "Revenge of the Sith" and "A New Hope," the film will follow a group of rebels banding together to steal plans for the original Death Star. Felicity Jones remains the only confirmed actor at this point in the film, she'll play a Rebel soldier.

The stand alone spin-off films, of which at least three are planned, have also scored a new moniker - the "Star Wars Anthology" films and will include 'Anthology' in the title to differentiate them from the main series.

Gareth Edwards directs the film which will hit cinemas late 2016. Speaking at the panel, Edwards »

Ashley Eckstein Talks Ahsoka's Mission, and Darth Vader in Star Wars Rebels Season 2

17 April 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The season finale of Star Wars Rebels saw the return of the fan favorite character, Ahsoka Tano, from The Clone Wars.  While we now know that the one-time padawan of Anakin Skywalker survived the Jedi purge, what does the future hold for her?  We got the chance to talk with voice actress Ashley Eckstein in a Q&A at Star Wars Celebration, and got some information on how the character has evolved in the years since the Clone Wars, and what she's up to in Season 2.  Come inside to learn more!

Ahsoka is an interesting character.  In a handful of seasons on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, she went from one of the most annoying characters, to being a fan favorite.  When the show was cancelled after the Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm, fans were desperate to see how her story ended.  Rumors of her return in Star Wars Rebels (the »

7 Key Scenes in The Force Awakens Second Trailer

17 April 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The nerd community virtually exploded yesterday morning when Jj Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy revealed the brand new teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  Now that you've had a chance to digest it a few times, let's talk about what all we're seeing and why it's so important! 

I had the good fortune to be in the main event Hall yesterday and watched the trailer reveal live with thousands of other fans, and it was quite the experience.  Sitting their cheering with the crowd and practically bursting with excitement is something I won't soon forget.  That said, even though they played it a couple times, being at the Celebration Hall didn't exactly give me much chance to really think about what I was seeing.  Fortunately, I've had a few chances now to watch it again in a more intimate setting, and can pass on some more information your way »

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” gets a New Trailer that will give you chills

16 April 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

A few minutes ago, Disney dropped a cinematic bomb on us by releasing the newest Trailer for the upcoming Episode VII of the Star Wars saga. This one, called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is the start of a new trilogy and a direct sequel to the main trilogy that ended with Return of the Jedi. Having seen the Trailer (which you can scope out below), I’m frankly stunned at how good it is, particularly in terms of one specific moment at the end. I can’t help but say it right at the forefront so we can discuss…seeing Harrison Ford back as Han Solo, standing next to Chewbacca, well, it gave me chills. Filmmaker J.J. Abrams might have gold here, if not better than that. I’ve already talked about how he seems to be the right man for the job, and he’s just proving it more and more. »

20 movie villains and the menacing stories they tell

15 April 2015 5:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

"How do you get rats off an island?" From Skyfall's Silva to Harry Lime, we took at the menacing little stories told by 20 screen villains.

Occasionally, a movie villain will pause for a moment to deliver a brief story or anecdote. And often, these apparently incidental tales tell us a lot about an antagonist's state of mind, experiences or warped worldview.

We've compiled a selection of 20 here. Some of them are blackly funny. Many are disturbing. One or two are even moving. The first one's very strange. All of them bring something unique to each particular film in which they appear, and all of them are laced with a delicious hint of menace.

20. Xander - Enemies Closer (2013)

"When I was a little boy at my grandmama's place, she had a lovely goose. I named her Edith, after the French singer Edith Piaf..."

We begin with a delightfully weird story from Peter Hyams' 2013 thriller, »

Star Wars Battlefront: 8 Perfect Ways To Tie Into Episode VII

14 April 2015 2:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney/EA

Star Wars fans certainly have a lot to look forward to this year; not only is the much-anticipated Episode VII coming to theatres in December, but game-wise the long-awaited Battlefront reboot is too, and already there’s much speculation as to how the two releases may intersect.

Recent rumours seemed to suggest that Battlefront’s storyline will directly influence – and even overlap with – the events of The Force Awakens, but just how they will connect is still a mystery. With the entirety of the Star Wars franchise now open to be explored by the developers at Dice, countless opportunities are presented to intertwine the game with Jj. Abrams’ first foray into a galaxy far, far away.

Pandemic’s Battlefront II had a campaign bolted onto the main experience, and despite being rather rudimentary in scale, it more than delivered – giving players the opportunity of experiencing the rise of »

5 Rules for Designing a 'Star Wars' Character

13 April 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the people most directly responsible for the design of the "Star Wars" prequel is Doug Chiang, so it seemed only fitting that I would hop on the phone with him to discuss "Star Wars: The Digital Collection" the morning after the announcement was made. Before we spoke, Fox sent over a clip from the extras on the "Digital Collection," and in it, Doug talks about lessons he learned from George Lucas about design, lessons that Disney summed up for me in the following bullet points: Rule I: Silhouette As a designer, you can get bogged down in the minutiae of perfect form and proportions. Doug had to learn to think and draw like a kid again. Don’t worry about the details; they don’t define a design. Rule II: The 3-second Rule When the audience sees something new on screen, they have to immediately connect with this new item. »

Box Office: 'Furious 7' easily holds off 'The Longest Ride' for no. 1 Friday

11 April 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Furious 7" continues to make history.  As of Thursday, the latest installment in the "Fast and Furious" franchise had earned $191.9 million in its first week. That places it at no. 10 for all-time seven day tallies ahead of familiar titles such as "The Hunger Games," "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" and every single "Twilight" movie. On Friday, the James Wan directed blockbuster pulled in another $18.8 million for $210.7 million in just eight days.  And, yes, Universal Pictures has no fears of their monster relinquishing the title of "No. 1 movie in America" any time soon. Remaining in second place was DreamWorks Animation's "Home."  The 20th Century Fox release earned $5.6 million on Friday for an impressive $116.1 million to date. Debuting in third place was another Fox release, "The Longest Ride." The latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation took in $5.5 million Friday for what should somewhere around $14 million for the three-day.  That's »

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn rescue Queen Amidala, ruler of a peaceful planet invaded by dark forces. On their escape, they discover nine-year-old Anakin Skywalker, a child prodigy who is unusually strong in the Force. 

Anakin Skywalker’s Podracer in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace was created from an interesting collection of vehicles and props. The front of the shuttle, in which Anakin sits, was made from the shell of a 1960’s racing car called a Maserati Birdcage. »
