Andy Serkis Teases Some Details About 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

7 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Director J.J. Abrams is keeping a very tight lid on "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens," but fans have gotten some hints over the last year. And now Andy Serkis is revealing even more clues.

The actor dishes some details to Entertainment Weekly in a game of "true or false." Serkis didn't say very much, but he did drop some nuggets to chew on.

For instance, his voice - which narrates the first trailer and sounds a lot like Benedict Cumberbatch - is entirely his voice. "There's no digital manipulation. That's just me," he said.

He also was able to confirm that he only plays one character (there were rumors he might play multiple roles) and that he has "been through some stuff."

Serkis got a laugh out of debunking another rumor, that he leads a "group of unbelievably athletic and acrobatic motion capture characters."

Whether his character is a hero or villain, »

8 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Many of the characters in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens are still shrouded in secrecy, and one of the biggest puzzle pieces is that of the character Andy Serkis is playing. When the teaser initially hit, many believed that Benedict Cumberbatch was the man behind the voice, and were surprised to discover that it was Gollum himself, Andy Serkis. While he's out and about promoting the hell out of The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies (on which he was the second-unit »

Dreamworks pushes Kung Fu Panda 3 to 2016 to avoid Star Wars Episode VII

11 December 2014 9:45 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Dreamworks was all set to debut Kung Fu Panda 3 in time for Christmas next year, but a little movie called Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens had to come in and steal all the thunder. Even the Dragon Warrior stands no chance against J.J. Abrams' mega-sequel which is bound to dominate the box office the end of December into January. So, to prevent any loss of box office, Dreamworks will move Kung Fu Panda 3 from December 23, 2015 to March 18, 2016. When you look at the new date, I »

Mad Max is back in this jaw-dropping trailer for Fury Road!

10 December 2014 5:32 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The last we saw of George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road was in the form of the absolutely gorgeous teaser shown at this year's Comic Con. For my money, it didn't get much better than that teaser. Now we've all seen some very exciting trailers over the past couple of weeks for Jurassic World and Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, so believe me when I tell you this trailer blows them all out of the water and into a thunderous desert storm of fury. The wait has been long, but it »

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Gets a 'Saturday Night Live' Parody

8 December 2014 7:48 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's already been a slew of re-edits of the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens from the hilarious "Special Edition" by George Lucas to the trailer presented in the style of director Wes Anderson. But since they're all just re-purposed footage from the original teaser trailer, we've still been missing Han Solo, Princess Leia and other familiar heroes. But "Saturday Night Live" has us covered in their trailer parody that pokes fun at the older versions of the characters. If the cross guard lightsaber wasn't different enough for you, Luke Skywalker gets a new one that fits his namesake and age a little better. Watch below! Here's the "Saturday Night Live" parody of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer from Hulu: If for some reason you haven't watched the trailer Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, watch it here.

George Lucas' reaction to the Star Wars Episode 7 teaser may surprise you

8 December 2014 6:49 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

By now, we have all been able to have a reaction, positively or negatively, to the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. Some felt nostalgia and others saw more of the same encountered in the prequels. But, there is one person we have yet to hear from regarding J.J. Abrams's first foray into the Star Wars mythos. What does George Lucas think about the trailer? One would have expected a blessing of some sort from the man who invented Star Wars but we »

What If Wes Anderson Had Directed the Star Wars Trailer?

4 December 2014 6:15 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Wes Anderson has a very specific style. It's one that people love but also love to mock - even his pal Edward Norton parodied it on Saturday Night Live. The teaser for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens is the latest thing to get the Wes Anderson treatment. A revamped teaser is set to French music, bold yellow writing is slapped on to announce the characters ("The Hooded Ruffian," etc.), and yes, Polaroids are involved. It's pretty on-the-nose and hilarious. Wes would be proud. »

Wes Anderson Presents the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Trailer

3 December 2014 3:51 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If you don't happen to like the title for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you can already make your own title card and call it whatever you want. But if you don't like the teaser trailer that everyone's been talking about, well, that's a bit harder to fix. However, some clever editors have already delivered some new versions, including that hilarious "Special Edition" of the trailer that probably met the approval of George Lucas. Now we have another awesome spin on the trailer comes from Jonah Feingold, who has reimagined the trailer as a sci-fi adventure from The Royal Tenenbaums director Wes Anderson. Watch! Wes Anderson's Star Wars: The Force Awakens from YouTube (via friend of the site John Cessna): And just for good measure, here's a super Disney-fied version of the teaser trailer: Plus, here's a trailer for Spaceballs in the style of Star Wars »

Stephen Colbert Ignites Debate Over New 'Star Wars' Lightsaber

2 December 2014 1:27 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Yesterday, I had some fun proposing a theory about the hotly debated new lightsaber from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer, which has been dubbed a cross guard lightsaber, and a little easter egg from the end of the trailer that was revealed. But now one of the big guns has stepped forward to talk about this new version of the elegant weapon. Stephen Colbert was off last week, but he returned in full force last night with a whole segment focused on the new lightsaber. But rather than coming up with geeky theory, his nerdity is focused on proving the new lightsaber hilt is practical and works fine. Watch! Here's Stephen Colbert's segment on Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the new lightsaber: Star Wars fans have been talking about this extensively, but could this be the final word?

Rumor: Full Star Wars 7 trailer will be attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron

2 December 2014 9:34 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

the Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens teaser nearly broke the Internet on Friday and yet folks have still found reasons to whine about it. I loved all eighty-eight seconds of it and I am glad we still have a long way to go before we know anything else about J.J. Abrams' sequel to Return Of The Jedi. How long we have to wait for more footage is unknown, but we know when the next major reveal may be. SlashFilm are under the impression from their sources that the full trailer for »
