C-3PO Episode 7 Suit

We know that Andy Serkis‘ performance capture studio The Imaginarium is heavily involved in JJ AbramsStar Wars Episode VII, but we never considered to ask if classic characters like C-3PO would be computer animated or played by a man-in-suit.  Well, apparently when JJ Abrams first called Anthony Daniels, he asked the British actor to voice our favorite protocol droid in the new series. As you know, Daniels not only voiced the character but played the droid on screen  in a tightly created armored costume in the original trilogy, although the character was heavily CG animated in the prequels. So is C-3PO a performance capture computer animated creation in Episode 7? Find out the full story of the new C-3po Episode 7 suit, after the jump.

Eric Tan Star Wars Trilogy

These three Star Wars posters are so beautiful, we figured they needed to be featured twice.

Eric Tan is one of our favorite artists here at /Film but, unlike others, he doesn’t release a lot of prints. That’s because his day job is a designer at Disney. That’s cool on its own, but in the past few years, it means he gets to play in the coolest sandbox of all: Star Wars. Over the past few months, Disney has been sporadically releasing Tan’s posters for Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and this week, he revealed Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

Unfortunately, Disney chose to only release these Eric Tan Star Wars posters framed and that makes them quite expensive. But you should check them out below and read more about the beautiful posters. Read More »
