You didn't think Star Wars: The Force Awakens was going to arrive in theaters with little to no fanfare did you? Disney and Lucasfilm are pulling out all the stops for this first Star Wars sequel in over ten years. And it's going to be a big party. Directed by J.J. Abrams and starring John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac, the 7th installment in the Skywalker family saga is going to have its world premiere in Los Angeles on December 14. Then, a number of star-studded premiers will happen around the world.
These premieres will all be quite massive. After showing on the big screen for the first time anywhere in Los Angeles, all participating cast and crew will jump into the Millennium Falcon and hit light speed for London. The rest of the locations have yet to be revealed. But it is said that the Los Angeles premiere »

Admiral Ackbar, who was first introduced in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, has become one of the more popular side characters over the years despite only one movie appearance to date. He helped win the raid on the second Death Star. And he's notorious for saying 'It's a trap!' A line of dialogue that has been uttered by others in the franchise, but never with such gusto. It's no secret that director J.J. Abrams is bringing the character back in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But what many may not know yet is that the same actor will be reprising this high ranking Mon Calamari rebel. And certain aspects of the production just don't sit right with the longtime puppeteer.
At this time, there are still very few plot details that we know about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And an official synopsis has yet to be released. »
Way back in March, Disney Xd announced that Sarah Michelle Gellar has signed on to voice a mysterious role in Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels. The new season starts Wednesday, October 14 with "The Lost Commanders, and now we finally have word on the character Sarah Michelle Gellar is voicing. BuzzFeed has the latest preview for this upcoming season, which confirms that the actress is playing a new Inquisitor, known as The Seventh Sister.
The Seventh Sister believes Ahsoka has returned. Sarah Michelle Gellar explains that her character is on a quest to destroy Ahsoka and the rest of the beloved Rebels. The actress also teases that The Seventh Sister "plays cat and mouse" with Kanan, voiced by her husband Freddie Prinze Jr., while discussing her longtime admiration of the Star Wars franchise as a whole. We also get to see some of the weapons in her arsenal, such as Mimic Droids, »

Clone troopers were first introduced in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones as highly-skilled combatants that followed any order without questioning its morality. But that has slowly changed over the years, most notably with the character of Captain Rex in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Now everyone’s favorite clone is set to make his debut in Star Wars Rebels, and alongside him are two more Republic veterans who also don’t exactly see eye-to-eye with the Empire.

In the Star Wars Rebels Season 1 finale, Fire Across the Galaxy, many fans were shocked to see Star Wars: The Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) make a surprise appearance. Ahsoka will be a regular fixture in Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels, along with a few fan-favorite clones as well, as you can see in a new preview for the upcoming episodes. Executive producer Dave Filoni talks at length about the grizzled soldiers that Ahsoka Tano sent the Ghost crew to look for and who will eventually come into conflict with Kanan -- the fugitive Jedi who watched so many of his friends die at the hands of clone troopers during Order 66.

Universal Pictures is getting back in business with Liam Neeson, acquiring an action-comedy pitch entitled The Revenger for the actor to star in. The pitch comes from screenwriters Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon, who will write the script, with Ruben Fleischer attached to direct. No story details have been released, since the logline is being kept under wraps, according to Deadline.
Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark will produce for their Universal-based Bluegrass Films banner. Ruben Fleischer is also producing with his partner David Bernad for The District. Liam Neeson previously collaborated with Bluegrass Films and Universal Pictures on this summer's comedy sequel Ted 2. It isn't known when production may begin on this project.
Liam Neeson has been busier than ever over the past few years, after the 2009 surprise hit Taken turned him into a bona fide action movie icon, although he still finds plenty of time for comedy projects. »
Perhaps its a little premature to be discussing the home video release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but a new rumor claims that the movie will stream exclusively on Netflix sometime after it's release in theaters this December. But the big kicker is that all six original movies will be available on the streaming giant prior to the film's release in theaters in a deal between Netflix and LucasFilm that gives Netflix exclusive access to the blockbuster franchise. And as suspected, it looks like AMC Theaters is planning an epic marathon of all previously released films before the new film hits countrywide.
As of now, there is no way to stream the original Star Wars trilogy and the prequel trilogy. It is only available on Blu-ray and DVD, and as a digital download from various consumer outlets. But that could all change very shortly. As you may know, »
"Roger Roger". Those two words probably make people who hate the film "The Phantom Menace" wince each and every time they hear them now. After all, that was the phrase that would come out of the most ineffectual weapons ever utilized by the bad guys in a "Star Wars" film… the Battle Droid. It's funny that I'd be thinking of Battle Droids this weekend, after completely sitting out what was referred to as "Force Friday." I remember the equivalent day in '99 when all of the "Phantom Menace" merchandise went on sale. I was working at the time as a closed-captioner, and one of the many thing I bought for myself at that midnight sale was a Battle Droid onboard his little flying scooter thingy. It sat on my desk for months, and I would look at it and imagine what we might get from the actual film. As with many things in the prequels, »

Star Wars: Rogue One is »
A couple of weeks ago Mads Mikkelsen suggested that his character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would play a crucial role, and that – surpringsly – he won’t be a villain. Well, it seems the Hannibal star may now have revealed his character name, thanks to an autograph signing at Fan Expo in Canada…

As you can see from the above image, Mikkelsen has signed the poster ‘Galen’, which doesn’t mean much in itself, if it weren’t for the fact that: a) Phil Lamarr hadn’t included Kit Fisto – his character in Star Wars: The Clone Wars – in his own signature; and b) that Galen is a name we already associate with the galaxy far, far away thanks to the video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, which centred on Galen Marek, a.k.a. Starkiller, »

After airing its first three seasons on A&E, Longmire was canceled by the cable network, only to be resurrected by Netflix. With Season 4 set to debut September 10 on the streaming service, stars Robert Taylor (Sheriff Walt Longmire) and Lou Diamond Phillips (Henry Standing) revealed new details about this upcoming season, and the prospects of getting renewed for a fifth season on Netflix. Here's what Lou Diamond Phillips had to say in an interview with Collider, when asked how this season is different from the first three seasons.
"What our writers - specifically Hunt Baldwin, John Coveny and Greer Shephard - have done is they've taken a thread and stretched it out over multiple episodes. In some cases, especially with the death of Walt's wife, Martha, they have continued to twist it and turn it and keep it compelling and interesting. So, certain threads are going to come to their conclusion in Season 4 of Longmire, »
Netflix's new drama Narcos is a nimble, impressive series. But how does it stack up against Netflix's other originals? For these purposes, we included only new or current series, and excluded stand-up specials, movies, and shows designed for children. This list also excludes shows Netflix saved or revived from cancellation: no Arrested Development (would have ranked highly!), no The Killing (uh, would not have ranked highly), no Trailer Park Boys, no Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp does qualify, however, because it's not a continuation of an extant television series. In a lot of ways, House of Cards seems like it should be Netflix's signature show: It's the most prestigious, with the most previously famous cast and pedigree, and it made such a splash when it debuted in 2013. And yet, looking at the overall landscape of the shows that have come to »

This week is leading into Force Friday, which will see a tidal wave of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and other franchise merchandise into stores nationwide. You are about to feel the power of burnout, as one company after the next releases their Star Wars branded products, which range from everything between action figures, to pool floaties, to basketball hoops, to PJs, books, posters and more. Don't worry, video game and mobile fanatics. Lucasfilm and Disney have that realm covered too. In fact, they have just announced their latest Mobile RPG, with Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes planned for release later this year.
While we'll all have to wait and play Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes at a future date, we do get the first trailer, which teases some of the game play. We also have the first photos for this title, which was announced by EA »
Disney Infinity 3.0 is far from a perfect game. Sadly some of the problems plaguing the first two versions return to rear their ugly head while the new lower price hides an unfortunate side effect. Throw Star Wars into the mix and the much ballyhooed recruitment of Ninja Theory to develop the Jedi fighting style and, along with Avalanche Software's continued Toy Box evolution, the latest Starter Pack overcomes its negatives to deliver the most enjoyable and addictive franchise entry yet.
Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm a few years ago made the Star Wars universe ripe to headline a Disney Infinity installment. With Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens debuting in December, this year was the logical choice for a galaxy far, far away to lead Disney's toys-to-life franchise.
The Disney Infinity 3.0 Starter Pack carries an Srp of $64.99 or $10 less than the previous installments and the competition. A lower price is always welcome; however, »
There's someone new in the galaxy, and we have a first look at this emerging presence. But who is the mystery woman on Shattered Empire's second issue cover? She looks a little bit like Han Solo's wife, Sana Solo, who was introduced in the main Star Wars comic book title, in a story that takes place prior to Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. It's not her. Star Wars: Shattered Empire is an upcoming Marvel comic series that canonically bridges the 30 year gap between Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And from what we've seen so far, there's going to be more than a few new faces to make things interesting. About the cover, the official Star Wars website had this to say.

An illustrated book which started life on Kickstarter has been picked up by Fox.
The story is set in a realm with two races, humans and the jotnar, and centres on a warrior named Vali who found peace in the arms of a woman.
The Kickstarter page states: "For years he has lived far from society, tending to his farm and trying to forget the battles he fought… and the crimes he committed.
"But one day his love disappears, and he must set out to find her. He will once again have to face the creatures of Jotunheim and the powerful Aesir.
"Suddenly, the man he thought he had buried deep down inside has risen to the surface once more... and he comes seeking vengeance. »
If you haven’t heard of Fall of Gods yet, get ready for a massive wave to hit. The Kickstarted illustrated book by Mood Visuals is now available on iTunes, and in other digital formats, as well as in the tangible form, and it isn’t just a massive hit, Twentieth Century Fox picked up the movie rights not long ago.
Just as an aside, if nothing else you should definitely check out the iTunes version, because it’s pretty awesome.
Of course, by the time this starts moving through production, which could be next week the way things are moving, it shouldn’t need a lot of help. The Norse mythos story is a great twist on your average plotline, »

Twentieth Century Fox is teaming up with Wes Ball, the director of its Ya franchise The Maze Runner, for an epic Norse fantasy.
