Is there any way to get on an old school Star Wars fan's good side quicker than teasing the death of controversial character Jar Jar Binks? J.J. Abrams wants to hide the much-hated Gugan's bones in the Jakku desert as a Star Wars: The Force Awakens Easter egg. But it sounds like he hasn't quite made up his mind. The director revealed his plans from the edit bay as the anticipated sequel continues to come together, stating:
"I have a thought about putting Jar Jar Binks's bones in the desert there. I'm serious! Only three people will notice, but they'll love it."
Star Wars: The Force Awakens has original fans excited for Star Wars once again, after the prequel trilogy did a lot to curb their enthusiasm. While younger audiences certainly enjoyed the last three films, older fans had quite a bit to complain about. And one of »

Begun, the Clone Wars has in the upcoming Disney Infinity 3.0 game as a second European retailer leak has outed the game's Starter Pack and surprising inclusive figures.
The idea that Star Wars would be at the forefront of Disney Infinity 3.0 has been around for months and wryly confirmed by Avalanche Software and Disney Interactive in various remarks dropped during that time. With a Force renaissance or rebirth rapidly approaching later this year with the theatrical release of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, it makes all the sense in the world for Disney to use Star Wars this year for the third Disney Infinity installment.
What's frankly shocking about this leak from German retailer Saturn is that the Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Pack comes packaged with two characters, Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker, based on the cancelled Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV show that ran for five seasons on the Cartoon Network. »
Director Genndy Tartakovsky is responsible for some of the coolest animated shows to hit TV, including Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars (mini-series). Most recently he directed the animated comedy Hotel Transylvania and is set to debut the sequel later this summer. I sat down with Tartakovsky to talk about what we can expect in the sequel and how it will differentiate from the first film, who his favorite character from the film is, »

Part of Star Wars Celebration's Friday schedule was a panel with Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace star Ray Park, which was live-streamed for fans who couldn't make the trip down to the Anaheim Convention Center. The actor also spoke with IGN, where he revealed that he would love to reprise his role for a Darth Maul stand alone movie. Take a look at what he had to say below.
"I would love to be disciplined, like not eat anything for four months, and be shredded and do the whole tattoo body effect like you see in the comics and the novels. I'd love to do that! If Darth Maul was coming back, he should be topless, tattooed, bigger horns, robotic legs! I would love to do it!"
Of course, a Darth Maul stand alone movie has not been confirmed by Disney and LucasFilm quite yet, and it »
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 »

Seth Green needs no introduction to anyone reading this. He’s an accomplished actor, writer, director, and producer for many high-profile movies and television shows we’ve all grown up watching. Green's acted onscreen in everything from the cult classic Can’t Hardly Wait to Scooby-Doo2: Monsters Unleashed and as Oz the werewolf in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He’s the voice of several legendary characters in such animated projects as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., and many more. Mr. Green’s also headed up Robot Chicken since its debut in 2005.
I had the opportunity to interview Green about his latest voice acting role as the lead character in Yellowbird. He shared with me how he got involved in the film, why he relates to the bird, and the message of the movie. Mr. Green also comments on the making of Yellowbird. »

Even though John Williams has been responsible for all of the scores for each film in the Star Wars saga (except for Star Wars: The Clone Wars), he'll be sitting out for the Star Wars spin-offs it seems. Williams has already been confirmed to provide the score for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and presumably Episode VIII and Episode IX (though he's getting up there in years, so time is of the essence). But when it comes to Star Wars: Rogue One, the first standalone adventure outside of the new trilogy, French radio program Radio Classique’s Culture Club (via Film Music Reporter) learned someone else will step up. Alexandre Desplat, fresh off winning as Oscar for the score for Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, will be scoring Star Wars: Rogue One. Desplat also wrote the incredible score for last year's Godzilla, which just happened »

If you ever doubted the powers of the Machiavellian shadow group pulling the strings at Disney/Marvel/Lucasfilm, now is the time to lay them to rest. Without a single leak, they’ve managed to map at least 20 new books that will lay the foundation for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Entertainment Weekly first broke the news earlier today. Entitled “Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the project includes novels on everyone from Princess Leia and Han Solo to Darth Vader and beyond. It will also dive into the original trilogy, retelling the classic tales from the perspective of as yet unannounced secondary characters. While I initially thought all the novels and comics would be released prior to the December 18, 2015 movie release, the announcement simply states that “At least 20 new books […] will be released this fall to fill the gap between 1983’s Return of the Jedi and »

As VFX technology marches on at speed, more and more of our favourite movie characters are being brought to life by actors driving a performance capture digital creation.
Though Andy Serkis's Caesar from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Sharlto Copley's Chappie sit at the cutting edge today, in its current form it actually stretches back nearly 20 years to Star Wars's much-maligned Jar Jar Binks.
Go back even further and take into account rotoscoping - animators drawing over an actors' performance frame-by-frame - it's possible to mark Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a landmark film in 1937. There, an actress was used as the basis for the titular princess.
Fast forward to 2015, and we're now at a point where many in the industry are calling for an 'Assisted Performance' Oscars category to recognise the work done by actors and VFX artists.
"I think the technology is relatively new, »
Welcome to another horror round-up! Hannibal fans have a big guest star to look forward to seeing in season three, the legendary Famous Monsters magazine is expanding with a comic book division, American Gothic Press, and Cinedigm and Wizard World have cult shows, beloved classics, and plenty of new content for viewers to enjoy with their just-launched CONtv digital network.
Hannibal Season 3: Entertainment Weekly reports that Zachary Quinto will star in a minimum of one episode in the upcoming third season of NBC's Hannibal.

It's been announced that Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) has been cast in a recurring role in Season 2 of the animated series Star Wars Rebels. Executive producer/supervising director Dave Filoni said, “We're thrilled to have Sarah Michelle Gellar on board for season 2. She is a true 'Star Wars Rebels' fan and her passion undoubtedly comes through in the voice recording sessions.”
Hopefully Sarah Michelle Gellar's character arc will last for many episodes, because selling the long-term emotional resonance of the title character's ongoing struggles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer was one of the key strengths of her iconic seven-year performance as Buffy Summers. And with all new Star Wars (from Star Wars Rebels onwards) said to be inter-connected in story terms, who knows what other instalments of the franchise the character could appear in?
(Of course, depending on acting availability, there's always the possibility »

It’s been almost a year since the sixth and final season of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” came out on Netflix as a truncated 13-episode arc rebranded as “The Lost Missions.” From introducing the concept of Order 66 to the deterioration of Anakin and Padme’s marriage, the show finished setting the stage for the events of “Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.” But while most of the season focused on getting the major players into their respective places, a handful of new characters were introduced. Among them were Jedi Knights Tiplar and Tiplee. The sisters were introduced during a pitched battle with the droid army in "Episode One: The Unknown” and they look unlike any alien species in the “Star Wars” universe. Floating tendrils of “hair” give them a Medusa-like appearance, though we never discover if Tiplee (the red-skinned sister) has cut her locks or if they »

It’s one of the most anticipated video games of 2015, but so far we know very little about EA’s upcoming Star Wars Battlefront, save from what little information we’ve been able to gather from the E3 2014 behind-the-scenes trailer, and a piece of concept artwork showing Rebel Commandos on Endor. Well, the folks at Making Star Wars claim to have uncovered some details about the game, and specifically how it might tie in with J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
- Star Wars Battlefront will feature segments in which you play as both the good guys (Old Republic, Rebellion and Republic) and bad guys (Separatists and the Empire). It was specifically stated that there will be a small portion of prequel trilogy content. You will participate in a couple of battles from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the space battle above Coruscant from the beginning of Revenge of the Sith. »

As promised, Marvel and Disney Xd have continued to reveal more cast members for their Guardians of the Galaxy TV series throughout the week, with Vanessa Marshall signing on to voice Gamora and James Arnold Taylor taking on the dual role of both Yondu and Cosmo. In last year's live-action blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora was played by Zoe Saldana, while Michael Rooker played Yondu. They join previously-announced cast members Kevin Michael Richardson (Groot), Trevor Devall (Rocket Raccoon), Will Friedle (Star-Lord) and David Sobolov (Drax the Destroyer).
The series stars Peter Quill as Star-Lord, the brash adventurer who, to save the universe from its greatest threats, joins forces with a quartet of disparate misfits - fan-favorite Rocket Raccoon, a tree-like humanoid named Groot, the enigmatic, expert fighter Gamora and the rough-edged warrior Drax the Destroyer. The Marvel Animation series is executive produced by Alan Fine (Marvel's The Avengers, Iron Man, »

Here's the story, of a lovely lady ... who starred in "The Brady Bunch Movie" back in 1995! February 17th marks the 20th anniversary of the still-hilarious film adaptation starring Shelley Long, Christine Taylor and even featured a cameo from RuPaul as a guidance counselor. The flick transported the series' vintage clothes, throwback songs and feel-good attitude to the '90s, where the Bradys often clashed with the modern world. To celebrate the anniversary, we tracked down little Cindy Brady herself, actress Olivia Hack. Now 31, Hack considers the flick a perfect "time capsule" of her life at the time. "I feel so old, I can't believe it's been 20 years," Olivia tells toofab's Brian Particelli. "It's a trip to watch it back, we had a really good time! I don't sit back and watch [the movie and its sequel] all the time, but when they're on TV, you remember a certain day that you shot this. It's forever, »
