Darth Vader’s appearance may be the headline when it comes to Monday’s Star Wars Rebels season one finale, but there’s lots more going on. A daring rescue, menacing Star Destroyers, three way lightsaber battles, and pimped-out Tie Fighters — things are about to get big. A trailer for the episode, which is called Fire Across the Galaxy, has just come online and it’s really fantastic. Good enough that we decided to highlight it on its own instead of in Star Wars Bits.

The current conversations about Star Wars: The Force Awakens are primarily concerned with two things: spoilers and trailers. Director J.J. Abrams recently admitted some of the spoilers on the Internet are true, just as some really big ones have come online. Meanwhile, everyone else has been patiently waiting for and debating when we’d see our next glimpse of footage. The safe money is on Thursday April 16, when Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy kick off Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, CA.
In a new interview, Abrams commented on this and offered up very little information. He did say that the conversation about how and when to release information to the fans happens every day. Read the J.J. Abrams Star Wars 7 trailer news below. Read More »

The Indiana Jones rumors continue to swirl and it feels like everyone is in the know except the principals. A few weeks back, Chris Pratt was cornered at an airport and asked about the rumors of him playing the role. He seemed fairly clueless about it. Then late last week, a report said that Steven Spielberg would be interested in directing a new film, if all the pieces fit. That suggested very little has actually moved forward on the film.
Then, on the Oscars red carpet, Pratt was cornered about the project again. This time he was much more prepared for the question and said he hadn’t been contacted about the role, but was intrigued by it and not intimidated. Listen to the latest Chris Pratt Indiana Jones interview below. Read More »

Fans know infinitely more about Star Wars: The Force Awakens than they do the standalone films. For sure, we know Gareth Edwards is directing one that’ll be released in December 2016. Gary Whitta wrote the first draft, Chris Weitz is writing the latest and we think Oscar-nominee Felicity Jones will star. We also think it’ll be about a group of bounty hunters or pirates hired to steal the plans for the Death Star. Emphasis on “think.”
That’s the 2016 film. 2017 will see Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Episode VIII and then 2018 will see the next standalone. We think Josh Trank will direct that film, but rumblings are even that might not be true anymore. As for the subject of the film, it’s mostly speculation.
Which is all preamble to the latest rumor, coming from The Sun newspaper in the UK. They say that second standalone movie will feature a young Han Solo (a rumor we’ve heard for years at this point) and that Taron Egerton, currently starring in Kingsman: The Secret Service, is being eyed for the role.

We’ve heard that Chris Pratt is the frontrunner to play a new version of Indiana Jones. Now, despite the fact that Pratt is not actually signed for the film, there’s word that Steven Spielberg wants to direct him in the Indiana Jones reboot, so long as the script turns out well. Read More »
Star Wars: The Force Awakens spoilers are like fast food. You know they’re bad, but you desperately want them. Some people have the enviable discipline to avoid spoilers, aiming to preserve the theatrical experience coming this December. Others omnivorously devour them, aiming to capture just a hint of what we hope to experience when the film finally comes out.
For spoiler hounds, one of the arguments we tell ourselves is “Maybe this isn’t true.” We hope we’re just reading speculation and that the truth isn’t out there yet. It turns out, that itself is a lie.
In a new interview, co-writer and director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams, confirmed that some of the spoilers out there are true, others are false, and that he definitely understands why people read them. Read what J.J. Abrams has to say about Star Wars spoilers below. Read More »
