‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ CinemaCon Footage Shows Han Meeting Lando
Disney unveiled footage Tuesday from its upcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” with a key scene between Alden Ehrenreich’s young Han Solo and Donald Glover’s Lando Calrissian.

The clip, shown to theater owners at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, showed the first encounter between the duo at a rundown and dingy cantina on a snowy planet with an array of other characters, including a creature with more than a dozen eyes. Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra character explains to Solo that Calrissian won his ship playing a card game, prompting Solo to promise that he’ll beat him — and then proceeding to do so.

The footage ended with both men wagering their spaceships and Calrissian warning, “You might want to quit while you’re ahead.”

The name of the ship was not unveiled, but in “Star Wars” lore, the original owner of the Millennium Falcon was Calrissian, and Solo

Mark Hamill, Kathy Bates To Appear in “Big Bang Theory” Wedding-Themed Season Finale

Mark Hamill and Kathy Bates are set to appear on the Big Bang Theory wedding-themed season finale and it’s expected to be about as funny as you would imagine. Since Sheldon is such a big Star Wars fan it’s assumed that Hamill is going to be playing himself, while there’s no word yet on what part Bates is going to play. But given that everything revolving around Sheldon and Amy at this point it’s safe to assume that Bates will take up a part that includes being someone that’s outspoken and quite humorous in her own right. Even in her

Rumour: Yoda to feature in Star Wars: Episode IX

While Mark Hamill has played coy about his involvement with Star Wars: Episode IX following his character’s demise in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a new rumour has surfaced which suggests that we’ll be seeing at least one Force Ghost when J.J. Abrams returns to the saga to bring the curtain down on the Sequel Trilogy.

According to a “source” for the New York Daily News, Jedi Master Yoda will return for an appearance in Episode IX as “he acknowledges Rey’s success and growth as a Jedi.”

According to Mark Hamill, J.J. Abrams will make the call as to whether Luke Skywalker returns in Force Ghost form in Episode IX, while The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has also revealed that he hopes Luke does make an appearance in the next movie.

While it would seem the natural choice to have Luke return to guide Rey,

If you're excited about Netflix's The Witcher series, you're going to have to be patient because we won't see it for another couple years. The show is based on Andrzej Sapkowski's book and CD Projekt Red's game trilogy.

She most recently shared a full list of characters that will be making an appearance in the adaptation. And Mark Hamill has expressed interest in playing Vesemir, which he would be perfect for.

Now, according to producer Erik Barmack during Netflix's press event in Rome, we've learned that the series won't be released until 2020. There's still a lot of work that needs to be done on the scripts and they need more time to get it all right.

'Star Wars': That Time Mark Hamill Was Sold on 'SNL'

Disney missed its chance to get Mark Hamill for a steal.

The company continues to profit from its $4.06 billion acquisition of Lucasfilm in 2012, which brought Luke Skywalker back to the big screen. But in an under-the-radar Saturday Night Live sketch from 1997, the Star Wars actor was sold on the Shop at Home Network by hard-selling hosts Will Ferrell, Chris Kattan and Jim Breuer.

Dressed as Luke Skywalker from Star Wars: A New Hope, the gag was that Hamill was kidnaped at gunpoint and brought to...

Over the past few months, Hamill hasn’t been shy about criticizing Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” Hamill has talked about not agreeing with the characterization of Luke, and how much the storyline has changed from what George Lucas envisioned decades ago.
