The Force Awakens Rating

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is officially PG-13. That’s the rating we all expected, but some fans worried Disney would try to make the film a completely kid-friendly picture — something we shouldn’t expect from J.J. Abrams or this franchise. Even the PG installments, like The Empire Strikes Back, would’ve been rated PG-13 today.

Abrams’ sequel is the second Star Wars film to be rated PG-13. After the jump, learn what the Force Awakens’ rating is and isn’t for.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Box office predictions can be tricky, but Star Wars: The Force Awakens is about as close to a sure-bet slam-dunk as we’ve ever going to see. Opinions vary only on exactly how huge it’s going to be. Today, distributors began tracking the film for its December 18 opening, and predictions run the range from “record-shattering” to “record-obliterating.”

Which is good news for Disney — but it’s also making the studio nervous. Because the higher expectations are, the higher The Force Awakens will have to soar in order to come across as anything other than a disappointment. Get the latest on the Force Awakens box office predictions after the jump.   Read More »

Jimmy Kimmel Star Wars

If you’ve been watching Jimmy Kimmel Live over the past few years, or if you just pay attention whenever there’s a Star Wars-related clip that makes its way online, then you know that Harrison Ford has some serious beef with Chewbacca. The Wookiee seems to have done some nefarious activities with the wife of the man who plays his on-screen pal. Ford is so upset at Chewie that he has called him a “son of a bitch” when he tried to stop by his dressing room in 2011, and a “Wookiee sack of shit” when he popped up again in 2013.

But on last night’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens-themed episode, Ford finally settled the feud as Chewbacca was threatening to end his life on top of Jimmy Kimmel’s studio. Plus, there was plenty of other fun stuff, like a trivia contest between the cast and a seven-year old kid, a hologram from Carrie Fisher and a Star Wars edition of Lie Witness News. Read More »

first star wars clip

For over a thousand days, J.J. Abrams was the guardian of spoilers and plot details in the newly revived Star Wars universe. Before the TV spots. Before the Disney marketing department.

After literally years of tight-lipped secrecy, the past few weeks have seen an explosion of new footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Once, we were hungry for footage of any kind, demanding it, begging for it, picking apart each and every trailer frame by frame. Now, when we wake up to a new TV spot, it’s just Monday.

And today, things have moved into the next stage. The first clip from The Force Awakens has arrived – 15 seconds of uninterrupted footage standing outside of a trailer, eagerly awaiting your nitpicking. Check out the first Star Wars clip after the jump.

George Lucas Star Wars Episode VII

Even though George Lucas has said that he always conceived Star Wars to span a trilogy, and then wanted to go back and tell the first three chapters of the story with prequels and finish it up with a third trilogy, there is plenty of evidence to support the opposite, such as Luke and Leia’s potential love affair turned sibling relationship. But no matter when he conceived of the story to follow Return of the Jedi, the fact remains that he did come up with an idea for a sequel, but Disney didn’t want it after they bought Lucasfilm.

Recently, an interview had George Lucas Star Wars Episode VII involvement laid out as being completely non-existent, long before the film even was called The Force Awakens, and it’s mostly because the studio didn’t want to embark upon the story outline that Lucas already had planned in his head.

Star WArs: The Force Awakens

We’re 26 days from the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but director J.J. Abrams only just finished the final mix at 2am in the early morning of Saturday, November 21st. The filmmaker revealed completion of the film while appearing at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center for the Celebrity Nerd-Off with Stephen Colbert, and it just makes me even more giddy to see the movie next month.

In addition, two new TV spots have surfaced online with some brief bits of new footage, including our first decent shots of Lupita Nyong’o‘s character Maz Kanata and the return of Return of the Jedi favorite Nien Nunb in the movie. Read More »
