Yoda Rumored To Share A Scene With Rey In Star Wars: Episode IX

Whether it’s Rey’s unremarkable parents or the death (?) of Luke Skywalker, it’s fair to say that The Last Jedi kicked up quite the fuss when it released back in December. Hell, there was even that online petition demanding that Rian Johnson’s sequel be struck from Star Wars canon. Now that’s divisive.

To his credit, Johnson has been pretty forthcoming about his creative decisions, and one need only look to The Director and the Jedi, a behind-the-scenes featurette detailing the director’s journey while creating Episode VIII, for evidence of that.

But if there was one thing that most people did like about the film, it was Yoda’s scene, which came as a welcome surprise. Many assumed this would be his only appearance in the Sequel Trilogy, too, and while there’s still no word from the studio on if he’ll appear in Star Wars: Episode IX or not,

Mark Hamill doesn’t “care anymore” about returning to Star Wars now Carrie Fisher has passed away

Now that Carrie Fisher has passed away, Mark Hamill doesn’t care as much as he did about returning to the Star Wars franchise.

Carrie Fisher’s death was a sad moment for many and for millions of fans for her role as Leia in the Star Wars franchise. One person that was particularly impacted by her death was her Star Wars: The Last Jedi co-star Mark Hamill.

Reuniting with Fisher and Harrison Ford for the new Star Wars movies was a huge factor in encouraging Hamill to return to the franchise but the actor says now that they can’t appear on screen together anymore, he isn’t all that bothered about returning.

“It really has tarnished my ability to enjoy it to its fullest,” Hamill told ABC News regarding Fisher’s passing. “You were asking earlier, ‘Are you gonna come back?’ I don’t care anymore, on that level.

Did Mark Hamill Just Reveal a Huge Star Wars Spoiler — or Is He Trolling Fans?

Did Mark Hamill Just Reveal a Huge Star Wars Spoiler — or Is He Trolling Fans?
Ever since Star Wars fans were introduced to Daisy Ridley‘s character Rey in 2015’s The Force Awakens, theories have circulated that the new heroine is the daughter of none other than Luke Skywalker — and even Mark Hamill is getting a kick out of the popular idea.

The 66-year-old actor randomly dedicated an Instagram post on Wednesday to Ridley, who he shared plenty of screen time with in The Last Jedi.

“Shout Out to #DaisyRidley for no particular reason other than she is a brilliantly natural, instinctive actor, a delight to work with & the best piggy-back ride in the business!

"I auditioned for this agency. I got an advertisement first, and then something else, which I got fired from. It was soul-destroying.

Doug Liman’s Chaos Walking to undergo major reshoots, release date likely to be pushed back

We may potentially have a little longer to wait before we get to see Doug Liman’s adaptation of Patrick Ness’ novel Chaos Walking, with THR reporting that the movie is set to undergo major reshoots later this year, which could see its release date pushed back.

According to the site, two to three weeks of additional photography are being scheduled in for later in the year, possibly beginning in December and running through to January.

Filming originally wrapped this past November, but with stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley in high demand and gearing up to shoot Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Star Wars: Episode IX respectively, they are unavailable until the end of the year.

Given that Lionsgate has the film scheduled for March 1st, 2019, it’s likely that these reshoots will force the studio to move back the release of the sci-fi thriller, although that is yet to be confirmed.

The Director and The Jedi Review

‘The Director and The Jedi’ reminds us of how easy it is to forget the extensive amount of work it takes to get a film onto the big screen. The exhausting 10-12 hour days that the crew toil, the inconvenience of unforgivable weather conditions on a tricky location shoot, the rejig of the schedule and budget that was planned months in advance when a principle cast member inopportunely comes down with the flu on shoot day. As Producer Ram Bergman describes in the documentary the process is delicate like a ‘house of cards’: one problem could topple the whole structure.

The Star Wars director, Rian Johnson, was inspired to hire a documentary crew on set due to a childhood memory of watching a Bts feature on ‘Return of The Jedi’, claiming it was the first time he realised films didn’t just appear on screen by magic, but are

How 'Peter Rabbit' Won Over the U.K. Box Office (Beating Spielberg on the Way)

How 'Peter Rabbit' Won Over the U.K. Box Office (Beating Spielberg on the Way)
In the end, it wasn’t a rebooted and more suitably clothed Lara Croft that toppled Black Panther from its record-breaking spell at the top of the U.K. box office. After a four-week run, Wakanda’s eventual dethroning came via a far more diminutive and unlikely challenger wearing a little blue jacket and literally nothing else: Peter Rabbit.

Sony’s live-action-meets-CGI adaptation of the beloved Beatrix Potter character — voiced by James Corden and also starring the likes of Daisy Ridley, Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie — took a stunning £7.3 ($10.2 million) on its opening weekend after launching in cinemas March 16,...

Rian Johnson reveals why he cut so many of Finn’s scenes from Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Rian Johnson, director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, has revealed why so many of Finn’s scenes were cut from the movie.

The Last Jedi was a packed affair. There was an awful lot going on in the sequel to Episode VII that naturally not all the planned material would make it into the film. This goes the same for scenes that were shot for key characters like John Boyega’s Finn.

With The Last Jedi mostly focusing on the dynamic between Luke, Rey, and Kylo, Finn’s presence in the film is not as substantial as it might have been, and to explain the decisions made, Johnson has told the following to Digital Spy:

“A lot of the Finn scenes that were cut are connective material,” Johnson explained. “For instance, there’s a scene where he’s on the ship, and Bb-8 comes in and shows him… basically,

‘Star Wars’: Simon Pegg Says That J.J. Abrams Wanted to Give Rey ‘A Relevant Lineage’ That May Now Be Undone

‘Star Wars’: Simon Pegg Says That J.J. Abrams Wanted to Give Rey ‘A Relevant Lineage’ That May Now Be Undone
It was the topic of perhaps the most heated discussion after J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” hit theaters in 2015: Who are Rey’s parents? As the central star in a brand new trilogy, the background of young scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley) swiftly became the subject of much debate. Was she a Solo? A Skywalker? A Kenobi?

Then came Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which included as pointed a scene as one could ask for, with Rey finally admitting to Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), “They were nobody.” Not content to let her have the last word, Kylo rounded it out, adding, “They were filthy junk traders. [They] sold you off for drinking money. They’re dead in a pauper’s grave in the Jakku desert.” End of story, right?

Not according to Simon Pegg, who has honed a close working relationship with Abrams on projects like the “Star Trek” franchise,

Simon Pegg Says J.J. Abrams’ Answer to Rey’s Parentage Was Different from ‘The Last Jedi’

Ever since Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters, a big question on fans’ minds has been regarding Rey’s parentage. Daisy Ridley’s Rey is, of course, the protagonist of this new trilogy, and in The Force Awakens it’s revealed that she was orphaned as a child by her real parents, who remain hidden from view. When Rian Johnson picked up the baton for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he came up with an answer to that question, and the answer is Rey’s parents are people of no importance. As revealed in the dramatic Rey/Kylo Ren …

'Chaos Walking': Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley Sci-Fi Movie to Get Major Reshoots (Exclusive)
Chaos Walking, Doug Liman’s big-budget adaptation of the best-selling Ya novel of the same name by Patrick Ness, is the latest big-budget movie to undergo significant reshoots, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

And, because of complicated scheduling issues with stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley, the reshoots could very likely force Lionsgate to push back the movie's release date, which is currently slated for March 1, 2019.

Lionsgate is spending between $90 million and $100 million on the pic, an ambitious sci-fi thriller that the studio hopes will launch a franchise that can stand out amid superhero movies, remakes and sequel tentpoles.

Rian Johnson received death threats over Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Rian Johnson, director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, has revealed that he received death threats as a result of making the movie, but acknowledged that most of the online feedback was positive.

Directing a Star Wars movie is unlike any other job in Hollywood, there is surely no pressure like it from a fan base that demands and expects so much from each film.

Rian Johnson directed the most recent effort in the franchise, The Last Jedi, but unfortunately the film proved to be quite divisive among fans – causing some vitriolic feedback directed towards him. Johnson has shockingly revealed how far some took their hatred of the movie:

“There were death threats. It’s balanced by a few things — 90 percent of the stuff I got online was not only lovely and encouraging but phenomenally thoughtful,” Johnson told the Standard. “Fans would send me essays on the movie. The other

Rey and Finn Are Confirmed To Be Teaming Up Again in Star Wars: Episode IX

Fin (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) didn't really get to spend very much time together in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. They each had their own journey that they had to embark on. But they reunited at the end of the film and according to Boyega, director J.J. Abrams will keep these two characters together throughout the course of Star Wars: Episode IX. During a panel at Awesome Con, Boyega had this to say:

“I haven’t read the script for ‘Episode 9,’ but Daisy did shoot me a text saying, ‘Oh my gosh, I just heard from J.J. [Abrams], and we’re back together. That’s what I’m really excited about, is Finn and Rey back together again.'"

That's good to hear! I do like these two characters and I'm excited to see how this final chapter will continue to explore their characters. Boyega went on to

Star Wars: Episode IX Will Reunite Rey And Finn For The Whole Movie

It didn’t take long for Star Wars fans to fall in love with new heroes Rey and Finn. Throughout The Force Awakens the Force-sensitive orphan and escaped First Order Stormtrooper formed a close bond, and Daisy Ridley and John Boyega both had a tonne of chemistry with one another. So, while I can understand precisely why it happened, it was a bit of a shame that they shared so little time on screen together in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

That’s all set to change in Episode IX, though, according to Boyega. He hasn’t seen the script for next year’s conclusion to Disney’s new trilogy just yet, but he did say the following (via /Film):

“I haven’t read the script for Episode IX. But Daisy did shoot me a text saying, ‘Oh my gosh, I just heard from J.J. , and we’re back together.
