8 Movies That Inspired War for the Planet of the Apes

War for the Planet of the Apes is a sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and a prequel to Planet of the Apes. But when it came time for Matt Reeves and Mark Bomback to write the script, the Apes movies were far from the only ones they looked to for inspiration. War for the Planet of the Apes is a war film, of course, but it’s also got shades of a Biblical epic and a Western drama. Below, let’s look at eight movies that inspired War for the Planet of the ApesRead More »

War for the Planet of the Apes

20th Century Fox kicked off their War for the Planet of the Apes marketing campaign with a bang at New York Comic-Con on Thursday, unveiling the very first footage for the film in front of an enthusiastic crowd of fans and journalists. Director Matt Reeves, producer Dylan Clark, and star Andy Serkis shared both a conventional teaser trailer and a very rough seven-minute sequence from the movie, as well as a behind-the-scenes reel focusing on the mo-cap process.

None of the footage is online at this point, but luckily for you, we were on hand and taking notes. Click through to read our War for the Planet of the Apes footage recap. Read More »

Dave Filoni Star Wars Rebels season 3 interview
The third season premiere of Star Wars Rebels will air over the weekend. As you probably know, fans went crazy when it was revealed that Grand Admiral Thrawn had been resurrected from Legends and has rejoined the Star Wars universe canon as the season’s big villain. The morning after the episode was screened at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016  I was lucky to get a chance to sit down with Star Wars Rebels creator Dave Filoni and talk about the upcoming season.

We talk about a wide variety of topics, including where we are now in the Star Wars timeline, how Ezra has made so much progress since we last saw him, when we will finally get some X-Wings in the rebellion, his thoughts on The Force Awakens, if it’s possible to actually kill off a good guy or turn them to the dark side on a kid show, if Darth Vader or more Inquisitors will appear in Season 3 of Rebels, the idea of Force neutral characters, how Saw Gerrera ended up in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Wedge Antilles new canon backstory, if Rebels will end before A New Hope begins, the process of adapting Grand Admiral Thrawn back into canon, and much more. Some of these answers have been broken out into stories on the site already, but there is also a wealth of material never published before as well.

And don’t worry, the interview is season three spoiler free. Read our complete Dave Filoni Star Wars Rebels Season 3 interview, after the jump.

star wars rebels x-wings

At Star Wars Celebration Europe 2016 I got a chance to sit down with Star Wars Rebels creator/showrunner Dave Filoni to talk about the future of the Disney XD animated series. I haven’t published the interview yet because I didn’t want it to get buried in the madness that was Comic-Con. But with San Diego behind us, let’s begin to take a look at some of the interesting bits that Filoni revealed.

Star Wars Rebels follows the Rebellion in the five years before Star Wars: A New Hope, but we’ve yet to see an X-Wing appear onscreen. So one of the first questions I asked Filoni is when we’ll finally see some X-Wings in Star Wars Rebels. Find out what he said about Star Wars Rebels X-Wings, after the jump.
