Update From Editor Peter Sciretta: Disney has released two new Tomorrowland videos focusing on some of the characters in the upcoming film. The videos profile Casey (Britt Robinson) and Athena (Raffey Cassidy). We have updated this story to include both Tomorrowland character videos after the jump.
I get the sense Tomorrowland is a movie I’m going to want to live in after we see it. Thankfully, Disney has made that pretty easy. Not all of it is easy to find, but they’ve done a great job at hiding clues to the history of the film across all kinds of media: books, theme parks, television and more.
Basically, it seems like some of the most famous and brilliant minds in history once came together to build a magical, futuristic place for humanity to continue to thrive in peace. But, something happened, and now that place is hidden. How was this place, called Tomorrowland, created? Why is it hidden? How can it be saved?
Lots of these questions are sure to be revealed on May 22 when the Brad Bird film hits theaters. Below, there’s a video detailing this history of Plus Ultra, the group of famous thinkers who combined efforts to create Tomorrowland. There’s also a new TV spot showing some of the connections between this movement and the events in the movie. Check it all out below. Read More »

Since the inception of Star Wars Rebels, everyone’s been acting under one assumption. That assumption is the show would only take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. But when you start thinking about films like Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, we start to wonder. Why does the show have to stop there? The Skywalker story isn’t the only thing happening with the Rebel Alliance. Why couldn’t the Rebels cross over, not only with Rogue One, which is set in the same period, but maybe even into A New Hope and beyond?
The answer to those questions is: it could happen. This is according to Rebels producers Simon Kinberg and Dave Filoni. We spoke with each at Star Wars Celebration and they said the show is not beholden to any timeline, there could be crossover with the films on the animated show itself, and there’s even a possibility the characters could show up in live action.
Of course, this is all hypothetical, but it sure does open up a pandora box’s of Star Wars possibilities. Below, read the quotes from Kinberg and Filoni on a potential Star Wars Rebels movie crossover. Read More »

Just when everyone was busy talking or bitching about Kylo Ren’s lightsaber in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the Star Wars Rebels team jumped on board with a strange design of their own. They introduced Ezra’s lightsaber, which looks like a staple gun and combines a blaster with a lightsaber. Because it wasn’t in theaters, this unique new Star Wars weapon didn’t creator the fervor of its cross-guarded counterpart, but it was still a radical departure from what Star Wars fans expect from the series’ elegant weapons.
At Star Wars Celebration, we spoke with Rebels producer Dave Filoni and since he wasn’t giving up many details on season 2, we asked about Ezra’s saber. Where did the idea come from? How was it designed? What was the purpose and was it hard getting it approved by the Lucasfilm Story Group? Read everything Filoni had to say about the Ezra lightsaber below. Read More »
Avengers: Age of Ultron has already grossed over $200 million in international release and will likely add at least that much to its grand total when it opens this weekend in the United States. Since the first film in 2012, fans have been patiently waiting for more Avengers action and that’s exactly what Joss Whedon delivers with the sequel.
Now, it seems like we might not have to wait until the third Avengers for more Avengers. Amazon.co.uk sent an e-mail to their users offering a pre-order of the Age of Ultron Blu-ray. According to their e-mail, the disc will include an extended version of the film and an alternate ending. However, Whedon said the disc will have deleted scenes, they just won’t be cut into the film. What about that alternate ending though? Read more about the Avengers: Age of Ultron Blu-ray below. Read More »
As exciting as going to the movies is, making one is often the opposite. It’s a slow, meticulous process that is more often than not boring instead of fun. There are so many moving parts, and so many people are invested mentally and financially, filmmakers just need to make sure everything is done right. The bigger a movie gets, the longer it takes to make sure that’s the case.
Movies don’t get bigger than Avengers: Infinity War. It’s a two part epic that is expected to feature an interplaterary battle between Thanos, The Avengers and maybe even the Guardians of the Galaxy. On paper, it’s everything the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building to since 2008. A movie that big will necessitate a very long shoot. That’s exactly what’s happening, according to star Chris Evans. He says he’ll be shooting both Infinity War parts for about 9 months, starting late next year. Read about the Avengers Infinity War filming below. Read More »
