‘The Prequels Strike Back: A Fan’s Journey’ Trailer: Maybe The Star Wars Prequels Aren’t Bad?

14 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

You’d be hard-pressed to find a longtime Star Wars fan who has a lot of nice things to say about the prequels that George Lucas returned to direct in the late 1990s and through the early 2000s. The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith were undoubtedly huge hits, but they […]

Star Wars: Rogue One Director Explains the Title's Multiple Meanings

23 August 2016 12:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in February 2013, just a few months after Disney announced they had purchased LucasFilm for a whopping $4 billion, Disney's Bob Iger confirmed that there will be stand alone movies set within the Star Wars universe. That report essentially confirmed rumors that Han Solo and Boba Fett movies are in the works at LucasFilm, but the first of these stand alone adventures is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, set between A New Hope and Revenge of the Sith, following a team of Rebel soldiers trying to steal the plans for the first Death Star. When the title was first announced, most assumed it just tied into the Rebels' X-wing fighters, but today we have word from director Gareth Edwards that there is another meaning as well.

While Rogue One is most certainly set in the Star Wars universe, this will represent the first film that will stand alone from the established timeline, »

A brief encounter with Kenny Baker: R2-D2 on fame, fans – and the sad rise of CGI

19 August 2016 5:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor behind Star Wars’s beloved droid died last weekend. James Innes-Smith remembers a cab ride with the star 10 years ago, in which he spoke of his music-hall roots, being typecast and his fractious relationship with C-3P0

‘Has anyone seen R2-D2?” It’s 2005 and I’m pushing my way through a sea of people wielding lightsabers. Leicester Square is festooned with Star Wars paraphernalia for the premiere of Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. Amid the screams, I’m struggling to find one of the franchise’s most popular stars: Kenny Baker, the man who brought the legendary robot to life.

Great Job, Internet!: The Force is strong with this fan-made trailer for an Obi-Wan Kenobi solo film

18 August 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story fast approaching, people are starting to think of the other possible spin-offs for the Star Wars universe. There’s the young Han Solo movie and the proposed Boba Fett film, but what of that gallant and regal space monk Obi-Wan? When is he going to get his due? Thanks to this trailer, fans can envision what an Obi-Wan Kenobi solo film would look like.

Filmmaker Rich Williamson made this trailer using footage from Last Days In The Desert and Revenge Of The Sith. It shows a contemplative Kenobi in exile, struggling with the sins of the past while dutifully watching over Luke Skywalker (from a distance).

Yes, the Qui-Gon Jinn Force ghost is a bit wonky. But everything else about this is incredibly appealing. The idea of a quiet, thoughtful character study »

Kenobi: A Star Wars Story fan-made teaser trailer

Kayti Burt Aug 19, 2016

One fan has taken the idea of an Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off Star Wars movie into their own hands...

It's been a good week for fan-made trailers for movies and TV shows we'd be interested to see spring out of existing canon. Earlier this week, artist Stephen Byrne graced us with a fan-made trailer for an imagined series called The Animated Adventures Of Firefly. Now, we're getting a fan-made teaser for the Star Wars prequel movie lots of people want: Kenobi: A Star Wars Story. 

The teaser heavily borrows footage from Ewan McGregor's Jesus-y Last Days In The Desert to imagine what Obi-Wan Kenobi's life might have been like in the period between Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope. Spoiler for a non-existent movie that only has a fan-made teaser trailer? It involves a lot of angsty wandering through the desert. »

17 August 2016 4:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story drawing near, more details about the movie are starting to trickle through. While we have known for a very long time that the movie will finally show us how the Rebels got their hands on the plans for the Death Star, it is becoming apparent that Rogue One will be digging much deeper into Star Wars lore. Director Gareth Edwards recently talked about a Jedi holy land planet called Jedha that will play a major part in the movie. Now, Lucasfilm has dropped some new details about the planet.

The official Star Wars website keeps a database of virtually anything you can imagine from the official Star Wars canon. Recently, the Star Wars website added an official page and description for Jedha, which gives some new details of the planet, which will be prominently featured in Rogue One. Here is »

Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca in Star Wars, penned a note of appreciation for his co-star Kenny Baker — the man behind the droid R2-D2 — after Baker passed away on Saturday at age 81. 

"My sadness is profound," Mayhew wrote, "and no words seemed adequate to convey what we collectively and I personally have lost."

According to Mayhew, the two men were close, brought together by their anomalous statures: Mayhew is listed as more than seven feet tall, while Baker was just under four feet. "Although people liked to contrast the difference in our heights, »

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, 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, »

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.

Looks like Tony Gilroy had a big hand in those Rogue One reshoots according to the film’s credits

12 August 2016 4:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in July it was reported that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was having major reshoots done and that Tony Gilroy would be assisting Edwards on set, just as he had done with Godzilla. And then earlier this month, we caught wind that Gilroy was also supervising the edit of the movie, further hinting that Edwards was losing control.

Well eagle eyed viewers of the trailer released yesterday have noted that Gilroy has been given a screenwriters credit on the movie along with writer Chris Weitz.

This would suggest that Gilroy has had a big infulenence on the story for Rogue One, enough of an impact for the Writers Guild of America (WGA) to award him a screenwriting credit. For those who don’t know how it works, the WGA look at all »

Rogue One Trailer #2 Brings Darth Vader Back to Star Wars

11 August 2016 7:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The wait for the next Disney produced Star Wars movie is getting shorter and shorter, and now we have a brand new look at the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Disney and Lucasfilm decided to drop the new trailer for the Star Wars spinoff movie after a very long wait that had many fans feeling quite restless. But the wait was worth it, as this trailer delivered in a big way. The featurette that they released last month at Star Wars Celebration may have been cool, but this absolutely takes the cake.

Prior to the release of this latest trailer for Rogue One, Lucasfilm finally revealed a lot of character details for the movie via Entertainment Weekly, which confirmed not only the names and descriptions for many of the characters in the movie, but also that Darth Vader would indeed be featured in Rogue One, which had been rumored for quite some time. »
