A little over 10 years ago, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith was released with the promise that it would be the last Star Wars movie we ever see. My, what a difference a decade makes. With as many as six movies currently in the pipe, the Galactic Empire Disney is cooking with gas to take full advantage of the Star Wars brand, the backbone of which is the long-awaited sequel trilogy. Episode VII, The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams comes out in December. The as-yet untitled Episode VIII comes out two year hence and will be directed by Rian Johnson. And now, rumor has it, the third and final film, Episode IX, will be directed by Colin Trevorrow. (more…)

Han Solo

With the transfer of the Star Wars rights to Disney, it was inevitable that the Mouse Overlord would try to capitalize on the property as much as possible. This has created joy in a great many Star Wars fans, as we will finally get the chance to see not only the original trilogy continue, but we’ll also be able to take a look into some of the other, lesser known Star Wars lore. One of those spin-off projects happens to be a film centered on one of the franchise’s most beloved characters, Han Solo. And now Solo’s solo flick has a couple of directors attached to it. (more…)

Everyone has a cause in which they believe.  If you have any doubt of this, take a look at Facebook after the landmark decision made last week and you will see many, many examples of people who believe in a cause.  However, how often do we actually do something, outside of changing a profile photo or commenting on a post, to contribute to that cause?  Most people stand in solidarity but their stand doesn’t go much further.  Then, you have people like Kevin Doyle. Kevin isn’t a movie star or a celebrity; he isn’t a civil rights activist or a political personality.  Instead, he is simply a good person, doing a good thing, in memory of a woman he loved.  (more…)

‘Indiana Jones 5?’ Still Just a Rumor Says Producer

Pratt

So there have been a lot rumors about Indiana Jones 5 pretty much since the closing credits of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but those rumors became even more pronounced when the Walt Disney Company bought out Lucasfilm in 2012. Surely, since Disney moved so quickly to get a new (or several new) Star Wars film in development, why would they leave Indiana Jones untouched? Good question, which is why every couple of months some new rumor churns up about the movie, a new Indy, or even the return of the old Indy, Harrison Ford. But according to producer Frank Marshall, don’t believe the hype, they ain’t even thinking about a new Indy yet. (more…)

Word is making the Internet rounds that Forest Whitaker is in talks to join the cast of Disney/Lucasfilm‘s Star Wars Spinoff Rogue One. If true and if the deal goes through and the ink dries this would be some fantastic casting. Whitaker is a talented Oscar/Golden Globe/BAFTA winning actor that would bring some heavy-duty acting cred to whatever role he takes on. (more…)

Green Leader is only on-screen for moments in Star Wars: Return of The Jedi, never speaks a line, but the character had such an impact on artist Daniel Warren Johnson that he felt he had to tell Green Leader’s story. How minor was this character in the Star Wars Universe? Arvel Crnyd, the actor who played Green Leader isn’t even credited in the movie. Johnson though, has taken this character that grabbed his attention and delivered a poignant and touching short comic that will make your day. (more…)
