Yesterday it was revealed that Woody Harrelson is in early talks to play an early mentor of Han Solo’s in Phil Lord and Chris Miller‘s upcoming still-yet-to-be-titled Star Wars spinoff.

Take a dive into our Woody Harrelson Han Solo character speculation, after the jump.

There is extensive preparation for any blockbuster movie. When you have a multi-million dollar project that will be employing thousands of people for months, you have to know what you’re doing. That’s why there’s a whole period of time called pre-production when filmmakers figure out what the movie is going to be and what they’re going to shoot on set. And when it comes to the preparation for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, there was a rather unique approach to figuring out that out.
Editor Colin Goudie reveals that before the screenplay was even completed, director Gareth Edwards had him use a scene-by-scene story breakdown to create a cut of Rogue One that was composed of scenes from hundreds of other movies. How did this help them in the process of planning the movie? Find out more about this Rogue One alternate cut below. Read More »
The Main Street Electrical Parade is my favorite of all the Disneyland parades. Maybe it’s the retro synthesized soundtrack that accompanies the nighttime floats, or maybe it’s the fact I first saw the parade as a young boy and fell in love with it. Even though Disney’s newer versions of the nighttime show like Paint The Night are technologically better in every way, it was unable to recapture the charm of this 1972 classic.
The parade has been at Disney World’s the Magic Kingdom for the last six and a half years, and on January 20th, 2017 the parade will return to Disneyland’s Main Street for a limited time five-month run marking the 45th anniversary of the parade. And Disney has begun marketing the return with an impressive television commercial. Watch the Main Street Electrical Parade commercial now after the jump.

Following the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, there has been a lot of chatter about the reshoots that ended up bringing significant changes to the final cut of the movie that we saw in theaters. We’ve scrubbed through a bunch of the footage from the trailers and TV spots, noticing that one of the biggest changes in the movie appears to be what our heroes do in the third act, specifically with regards to the Death Star plans.
Now some discussion about the significant changes to the Rogue One ending, as well as details on which scenes are reshoots, have been revealed by the film’s editors, John Gilroy and Colin Goudie. Find out what they had to say about the Rogue One reshoots after the jump, but beware of spoilers if you haven’t seen the movie yet. Read More »
Aside from being the first live-action feature film set in the Star Wars universe that wasn’t a milestone episode of the sci-fi saga, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story strayed from the tradition of the franchise in another big way. While the film still opened with the text, “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away,” it didn’t feature the signature Star Wars fanfare accompanied by an opening crawl to set the stage. However, the original draft of the script by Gary Whitta (who has a story credit on the movie) actually has an opening crawl.

With occasional exceptions for an Avatar or a Lord of the Rings, December has not traditionally been a boom time for blockbusters. More often, summer is when the big-budget spectacles come out in full force. But you may have noticed that the past two winters have been absolutely dominated by Star Wars — and we have every reason to believe Episode VIII will repeat the trick in 2017.
No surprise then, that a new rumor claims Disney is thinking of sticking with that Christmas corridor, instead of shifting to summer with 2018’s Han Solo spinoff as originally planned. More about the Han Solo release date rumor below. Read More »
Not long after Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit theaters, many fans had questions about a certain location we see in the movie that isn’t identified with any on-screen text. There’s a certain scene that takes place in a castle inhabited by Darth Vader. We’ve already learned some details about the location, including confirmation that it can be found on the volcanic planet Mustafar and the fact that it’s built on top of a Sith cave. Now even more information has come to light.
Rogue One co-production designer Doug Chiang recently sat down for an interview to discuss the work he did on the Star Wars spin-off, and part of the extensive discussion included Darth Vader’s castle details that are rather intriguing. Read More »
We’ve written before about how Rogue One: A Star Wars Story really doubles down on the interconnectedness of the new Star Wars canon, finding ways both obvious and subtle to tie the first standalone film to the larger universe. While Gareth Edwards’ film makes its exact position in the series’ timeline very clear before the credits roll, it also establishes a number of connections to the animated Star Wars television series, offering tiny easter eggs and major characters borrowed from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
The most obvious of the bunch is Saw Gerrera, who made his debut on The Clone Wars as a young man, appeared in live action as an older man (played by Forest Whitaker), and will soon pop up on Rebels as a slightly younger version of that older man. A new promo for his episode has arrived, offering a pretty good look at what we can expect from his return to the small screen.
