Gal Gadot Gets Behind the Wheel of Her Own Wonder Woman Car
A third Wonder Woman movie may not be on the horizon quite yet. In the meantime, Gal Gadot is showing off the vehicle she may use to drive off into the sunset. She is sharing images on social media that put her behind the wheel of a custom car, which features the Wonder Woman insignia on the horn and dashboard. While it's not clear if it's her own personal car, she joked in the post, "It's no invisible jet but I guess it will do," suggesting that it could be her current ride.

Is Taika Waititi's Star Wars Movie Next? He Sure Hopes So
Taika Waititi, the director of Thor: Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit, is a busy, busy man. We know for sure that one of the projects he has to tackle on his massive to-do pile is a new, mysterious Star Wars movie. But will that be the next movie he makes? That has yet to be determined, but Waititi sure seems to hope it will be.

Recently, the filmmaker wrapped up production on Thor: Love and Thunder, which is set to arrive in theaters in time for the summer movie season next year. During an interview after filming wrapped, Taika Waititi was asked if his mysterious movie set in a galaxy far, far away would be his next. He made it clear that he doesn't know, as he has a lot of things on his plate. Here's what he had to say about it.

"I don't know if that's going to be Star Wars.

The Mandalorian Spinoff Rangers of the New Republic Canceled at Disney+?

The Mandalorian Spinoff Rangers of the New Republic Canceled at Disney+?
One of the various Star Wars TV shows Lucasfilm had in development is reportedly no longer going forward. At least for the time being. Rangers of the New Republic, which was announced late last year to serve as a spin-off of The Mandalorian, is not currently in development at the studio. While no official reason has been given, the departure of Gina Carano from the franchise would seem to be the likely culprit.

It recently came to light that Dave Filoni, producer of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and The Mandalorian, had been handed a promotion at Lucasfilm. Filoni is now an Executive Creative Director. While the promotion came some time ago, the company only recently updated its website, alerting fans that Filoni has indeed ascended the ranks. Buried within one of the reports detailing Filoni's projects was the news that "''Rangers of the New Republic,' is not currently in active development.

Star Wars Producer Dave Filoni Gets Promoted to Executive Creative Director at Lucasfilm

Star Wars Producer Dave Filoni Gets Promoted to Executive Creative Director at Lucasfilm
Dave Filoni, one of the key creatives behind Star Wars for the last decade and a half, has been handed a major promotion at Lucasfilm. Filoni is now an Executive Creative Director at the company, which seemingly means he will have a larger role in shaping the future of the franchise. This is something many fans have been hoping would happen for some time as Filoni has proved time and time again that he knows this universe perhaps better than anyone, save for George Lucas.

While much of the specifics, in terms of what this promotion means, remain unclear, Lucasfilm's official website has updated Dave Filoni's profile with the title of Executive Creative Director, to go along with his Executive Producer title. John Knoll and Doug Chiang also hold that title within the studio's ranks. Kathleen Kennedy remains on board as President of the company. It is worth noting that,

Star Wars Celebration 2022 Is Happening Sooner Than Expected

Star Wars Celebration 2022 Is Happening Sooner Than Expected
Rejoice, force users. Star Wars Celebration will be returning sooner than previously expected. Originally, the event was scheduled to take place last year but, due to health and safety concerns, Disney and Lucasfilm were forced to cancel it. Instead, they opted to return in August 2022 with an in-person convention. Now, they have opted to move the event forward a few months from August to May of next year.

Is Daisy Ridley Returning as Rey Skywalker in a New Star Wars Movie?

Is Daisy Ridley Returning as Rey Skywalker in a New Star Wars Movie?
Could we be gearing up for more Rey in a galaxy far, far away? That may be the case, if a new rumor floating around is to be believed. Indeed, this rumor suggests that Daisy Ridley, who played Rey in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, is in negotiations to reprise her role as the character in a future project. Whether or not we see Rey Skywalker in a post-The Rise of Skywalker world, or something else entirely, remains wholly unclear for the time being.

Again, for the time being, we must caution that this is merely a rumor and should be regarded as such. Until Daisy Ridley and/or Lucasfilm weigh in officially, it should not be taken as anything more. That being said, a new report claims that the actress is in talks with Disney and Lucasfilm for an unnamed Star Wars project. No further details were provided, which

Zack Snyder Would Love to Make a Star Wars Movie, But Doesn't Think He'd Survive It

Zack Snyder Would Love to Make a Star Wars Movie, But Doesn't Think He'd Survive It
Whether or not it is something that would ever truly be on the table is one thing, but Zack Snyder, at the very least, would love to direct a Star Wars movie. At least in theory. Though the Justice League director has some doubts in terms of whether or not he could survive the process in practice.

Zack Snyder has been making the interview rounds for the last couple of months. First for the release of the Snyder Cut of Justice League on HBO Max and now for Army of the Dead, his new zombie movie making its way to theaters and Netflix later this month. During a recent interview, Snyder was discussing the notion of injecting his personal view into IP-driven movies. That's when he revealed that he'd love to tackle an entry in a galaxy far, far away. Here's what he had to say about it.

Star Wars: John Williams Has an Heir Apparent, and It's Kevin Kiner

Star Wars: John Williams Has an Heir Apparent, and It's Kevin Kiner
Music is as much of a character in Star Wars as anyone, or anything, else. What John Williams managed to do throughout the Skywalker saga, over more than four decades, is nothing shy of impressive. That music helped to define and enhanced George Lucas' beloved sci-fi series and a galaxy far, far away. But Williams is said to be done following his work on The Rise of Skywalker. Yet, Star Wars is going to live on in a big way. The good news is, Williams already has an heir apparent, and his name is Kevin Kiner.

Fans will be forgiven for not knowing Kevin Kiner by name, but a great many of those who enjoy Star Wars are intimately familiar with his work. Kiner has been an enormous part of the franchise for more than a decade as the primary composer for both Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.

Star Wars: Rogue Squadron – Why Fans Are Skeptical (& Why They're Excited)
The next Star Wars movie to hit the silver screen will be Rogue Squadron. Announced for a December 2023 release at the recent Disney Investor Day, Rogue Squadron will be written and directed by Patty Jenkins and revolve around starfighter pilots earning their stripes in a galaxy torn apart by war. Jenkins’ hiring will make Rogue Squadron the first-ever Star Wars movie directed by a woman.

How Star Wars Can Finally Have a Marvel-Like Shared Universe

How Star Wars Can Finally Have a Marvel-Like Shared Universe
Last December, Disney announced seven new Star Wars film and TV projects, giving us a look at what the next few years in the galaxy far, far away will look like both on Disney+ and in theaters. While the Rogue Squadron movie directed by Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman) was the absolute mic drop of the evening, equally impressive is Disney’s plan for the small screen: several new series that expand the stories of fan-favorite characters like Ahsoka Tano and Lando Calrissian. Most intriguing of all is that many of these shows are designed to connect and interact with each other. In other words, Disney is finally getting what it’s always wanted for Star Wars: a shared universe of screen projects meant to emulate the interconnectedness of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Storytelling synergy has existed for a long time between Star Wars movies, books, comics, and games, but

Kelly Marie Tran Misses Rose Tico, But Doesn't Know If She Could Ever Play Her Again

Kelly Marie Tran Misses Rose Tico, But Doesn't Know If She Could Ever Play Her Again
Are we ever going to see Kelly Marie Tran as Rose in the Star Wars galaxy again? Don't bet on it. Not so much because Disney and Lucasfilm wouldn't want it to happen but because Tran seems to have moved on in many ways from that part of her life. As Tran tells it, she's just a different person now and that could make it difficult to step back into those shoes once again.

Kelly Marie Tran is currently supporting the release of Disney's Raya and the Last Dragon, in which she voices the title role. Tran recently did an interview with voiceover artist Cissy Jones. During the conversation, Tran was asked about a possible return to the role of Rose Tico down the line. Here's what she had to say about it.

Kylo Ren Tortured Chewbacca in Filmed The Rise of Skywalker Deleted Scene

Kylo Ren Tortured Chewbacca in Filmed The Rise of Skywalker Deleted Scene
It's no secret that The Rise of Skywalker could have turned out a number of different ways. From Colin Trevorrow's original version, titled Duel of the Fates, to what J.J. Abrams did with the theatrically released version, a lot changed. Now, we have some insight on another scene that was scrapped, as actor Joonas Suotamo reveals that they filmed a scene that featured Kylo Ren torturing Chewbacca.

Adam didn't talk at all during breaks, even though at this point the actors were otherwise friends. Joonas says Adam was so convincing in the deleted torture scene that he was at times actually scared & he believes the scene might have turned out too dark for the film. pic.twitter.com/Tw9hnJpYGh

Nick Frost Turned Down a Star Wars Role Because the Pay Was 'Rubbish'
Nick Frost could have been a part of the Star Wars galaxy. Unfortunately, the paycheck wasn't big enough. The Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz actor recently revealed that he was offered a small role in an unknown project in the massive franchise. But he ultimately turned it down over the pay he was offered.

Nick Frost made the reveal on a recent episode of the Celebrity Catch Up: Life After That Thing I Did podcast. While much remains mysterious, as it isn't clear if this was for one of the Disney-produced Star Wars movies or The Mandalorian, Nick Frost did explain he had a chance to appear in the franchise. Here's what he had to say about it.

Snowy Lightsaber Battle Has Two Colorado Star Wars Fans Going Viral

Snowy Lightsaber Battle Has Two Colorado Star Wars Fans Going Viral
Lightsaber fights have been a part of Star Wars ever since George Lucas introduced us to a galaxy far, far away back in 1977. From the moment Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Vader dueled on the Death Star, these weapons were cemented as one of the most emblematic elements of the franchise. More than that, they have become a true staple of pop culture. So, it's not too surprising when a couple of fans decided to break out their lightsabers and duke it out for fun. It is, however, a bit more surprising, and arguably entertaining, when that happens in the snow.

A video was recently posted to Facebook by Anghelie Elizabeth. It features two people dueling with their lightsabers in the middle of a snowstorm in Colorado. One of them is rocking a yellow/orange blade, not unlike the one Rey is seen with at the end of The Rise of Skywalker.
