Final Star Wars: Rogue One Trailer Is Coming with Doctor Strange

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Star Wars history will be made in just a few short months when Disney and LucasFilm release the first ever franchise spin-off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is set between the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. Fans waiting for the next trailer won't have to wait much longer, with a new report claiming the third and final trailer for Star Wars: Rogue One will be attached to prints of the new Marvel Studios superhero adventure Doctor Strange. While this news hasn't been confirmed, it did originate from a Disney executive, albeit from the company's Russian division.

According to Star Wars News Net, Elena Brodskaya, marketing director of Russian subdivision of Disney, held a presentation at Kino Expo International in St. Petersburg, Russia last week. She outlined details about the studio's slate, including »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story character descriptions for Moroff, Pao and two new Stormtroopers

27 September 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to the folks at Making Star Wars, we’ve got a few new character descriptions for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, featuring two of the film’s alien supporting characters, along with a couple of Imperial Stormtrooper classes; take a look…

Moroff (Gigoran species)

Moroff seeks out combat zones to sell his brawn and firepower to anyone who might need it. The mighty Gigoran mercenary figures there’s money to be made for a towering heavy gunner.

Pao (Drabata species)

An amphibious Drabata, the fierce commando Pao charges into battle with a full-throated battle cry of “Sa’Kalla!” He joins the Rogue One team on its historic mission to secure the Death Star plans.

Scarif Stormtrooper Commander

Specialist stormtroopers stationed at the top-secret Imperial Military headquarters on Skarif, Shoretroopers patrol the beaches and bunkers of the planetary facility.

Hovertank Driver

Imperial combat drivers operate the Empire’s arsenal of armored repulsor vehicles. »

Valene Kane playing Jyn Erso’s mother in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

26 September 2016 4:06 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve known for a while that Mads Mikkelsen is playing Galen Erso, the father of Felicity Jones’ Jyn Erso, in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and now we know who’s playing her mother too, with actress Valene Kane (The Fall) revealing that she’s set to portray Lyra Erso in December’s Anthology movie.

“I grew up watching Stars Wars and I didn’t believe it was happening until I was filming in Iceland,” said Kane in an interview with told Belfast Live. “[The film] has a really edgy independent vibe.”

Given that Kane shot her scenes in Iceland (and the fact she’s four years younger than Felicity Jones), we can assume that she’ll feature in flashback scenes with a young Jyn Erso and will presumably only have a minor role in the film.

Vos and Asajj Golden in Star Wars Dark Disciple

26 September 2016 5:36 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

I want to get the basics out of the way first. If you don’t like or want spoilers don’t read on. I will tell you the point of a person reading a book and then sitting down to write up about what they didn’t just read when there is one. Seems like a waste of time to me, so go read the book and watch Thrawn return to new canon like any good Star Wars fan this week and come back here.

Dark Disciple is one of the better new canon Star Wars novels. It is so by a healthy margin and I was aware of it probably 1/3 of the way through my reading of it which is a great feeling to have but in turn allows entry for trepidation as you become aware of your desire to not be let down by the conclusion. Because of this, »

Third Star Wars Spin-Off Has a Writer, But Who Is It?

21 September 2016 3:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed today that the studio is developing a third Star Wars spin-off, with a screenwriter already in place. The CEO wouldn't reveal the identity of the writer involved in the project, or what this spin-off will focus on, but there have long been rumors that the movie will center on the iconic bounty hunter Boba Fett. That still hasn't been confirmed, but with a writer on board, we could hear more about this project soon.

The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Bob Iger during a conference in New York, with the CEO also revealing that he has heard a pitch from the director of Star Wars: Episode IX. While that director is not identified in the report, Colin Trevorrow has long been attached to write and direct the final installment of this new trilogy, so perhaps this means that the the script is finished.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story: Disney Not Expecting The Force Awakens Box Office Numbers

21 September 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

We’ve said it time and again on this site that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a big deal. Not only is this a Star Wars film, but it’s the movie that’s set to usher countless potential anthology films, which will make up at least half of the upcoming films for the foreseeable future. In many ways, it’s a test: can mainstream audiences connect with a film that’s not one hundred percent in line with the standard saga films? That remains to be seen.

At the same time, one can’t exactly expect Rogue One to do the same box office numbers as last year's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The Force Awakens was a movie that was hotly-anticipated. Given that the last feature film we had from the series was Revenge of the Sith, a middling entry in the franchise, at best, fans »

Star Wars: who is Snoke? Exploring the theories

19 September 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Sep 20, 2016

He’s the shadowy villain in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but is there more to Snoke? Ryan looks at some of the fan theories...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and copious speculation about Episode VIII and beyond.

Both physically and metaphorically, Supreme Leader Snoke loomed large over Star Wars: The Force Awakens. His gravelly voice - as provided by Andy Serkis - was the first thing we heard in the sequel's teaser trailer ("There has been an awakening. Have you felt it...?"). In the movie itself, Snoke was the shadowy puppet master, the overlord of the First Order who seduced Kylo Ren to the Dark Side. Appearing as a hologram (and performed by Andy Serkis), Snoke towered over everyone else in the movie, a pale-skinned, seemingly ancient spectre who barely moved from his throne.

Michael Giacchino replaces Alexandre Desplat as composer on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

16 September 2016 1:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks like the extensive reshoots on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has led to scheduling conflicts for composer Alexandre Desplat, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that the Oscar-winner is no longer available to score the film.

Stepping in as Desplat’s replacement is another Academy Award-winner in Michael Giacchino, who has worked extensively with Disney in the past on the likes of Up, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Cars 2, Inside Out, Zootopia, John Carter, Tomorrowland and the upcoming Doctor Strange.

Giacchino will not have the distinction of becoming the first composer aside from John Williams to score a Star Wars movie. He is also a huge Star Wars fan, and made a cameo as a Stormtrooper in last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was directed by his friend J.J. Abrams.

That live-action ‘Star Wars’ TV show isn't happening any time soon

14 September 2016 4:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The long-teased live-action Star Wars television show has just gotten an update, of sorts, from Disney/ABC TV's Ben Sherwood. Talk of a Star Wars TV show started long before Disney purchased Lucasfilm, but it likely won't be stopping any time soon because people can't get enough Star Wars. It's so far only been known as Star Wars: Underworld and was theoretically meant to take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Since then we've had two fantastic animated series — Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels — which take place during that time (Clone Wars a bit earlier). In a larger interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Disney/ABC TV's Sherwood was asked about the status of the series. He said: The live-action Star Wars plan rests in the hands of [Walt Disney Studios chairman] Alan Horn, [Lucasfilm president] Kathy Kennedy and the great folks at Lucasfilm. Somewhere we hope in a »

Entire Star Wars Movie Saga Heads to TNT and TBS in $200M Disney Deal

14 September 2016 12:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Get ready for some old-school binge watching, because all of the Star Wars movies are coming to TNT starting this weekend. Turner Inc., who owns TNT, TBS and several other cable networks, have made a massive deal with Disney in order to secure the broadcast rights for 10 Star Wars movies. Turner had to make a separate deal with 20th Century Fox, who still owns the rights to Star Wars: A New Hope. That brings the total to 11 Star Wars movies the company now has the rights to.

Deadline reported on Wednesday that Turner had made the deal with Disney for around $200 million. The deal includes the Star Wars prequel trilogy, as well as The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. It will also include the next three yet-to-be-released movies, which will be Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars Episode VIII and the upcoming untitled Han Solo spinoff movie. »

Adam Driver Teases Tonal Shift Ahead Of Star Wars: Episode VIII

14 September 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just as Empire Strikes Back broke course from A New Hope and took George Lucas’ budding new franchise into darker territory all those years ago, it seems that Star Wars: Episode VIII will uphold tradition by ushering in a tonal shift from J.J. Abrams’ lucrative crowd-pleaser, The Force Awakens.

At least, that’s according to Adam Driver, who is back on board as the erratic galactic menace in training, Kylo Ren. Left wounded and without a father when the credits rolled on last year’s mega-hit, Driver shed some light on the thinking process behind Episode VIII, and how that aforementioned tonal shift is in many ways brought about by the change of director, with Rian Johnson taking point in lieu of J.J. Abrams.

Per Collider:

Rian is coming into something that we kind of set up and he just took it to the next level in a really great way. »

Five Reasons Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Is More Important Than The Force Awakens

14 September 2016 5:50 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

When J.J. Abrams delivered Star Wars: The Force Awakens last year, he essentially brought life back to one of Hollywood's most beloved series. The movie was a critical smash, and would go on to become the all-time champion at the domestic box office. While some have chastised the film for relying too heavily on the legacy of the original trilogy, few can argue that the The Force Awakens didn't bring Star Wars back in a major way, and was a genuine crowd-pleaser for both longtime fans and newcomers to that galaxy far, far away.

The next film in the franchise, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, may actually eclipse The Force Awakens because of a few key factors. Today, we'll explore why Rogue One is so huge, and why its performance is one that we'll have to pay close attention to.

Promotional Artwork For Rogue One Showcases Both Sides Of The Force

8 September 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

The Force is strong in Pyramid International.

Three months out from the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the outlet has premiered a batch of beautiful artwork for Gareth Edwards’ Anthology film (via HeyUGuys) that essentially offers up a fresh look at the questionable heroes and menacing villains populating the upcoming offshoot.

Chief among them is, of course, Jyn Erso, the “reckless, aggressive, and undisciplined” drifter portrayed by Felicity Jones. Recruited by Mon Mothma (Genevieve O’Reilly) to spearhead a clandestine mission against the Galactic Empire, one that centers on the formidable Death Star, Jyn Erso is very much the driving force behind Edwards’ hotly-anticipated picture and, in true Star Wars fashion, her father Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen) will prove instrumental in the overarching story.

That’s a narrative through line that was merely teased ahead of the arrival of a new Rogue One tie-in novel. »
