All The Force Awakens Rumors

First and foremost, we here at /Film are passionate fans of movies. That’s why we go out of our way to make sure we don’t post any spoilers without fair warning so as not to ruin the movie-going experience for anyone else. This is especially true when it comes to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which can be difficult when there are endless spoilers out there.

But there are some fans who seek out spoilers like a bloodhound, anxious to know every last detail about the film they’ll eventually see in theaters. And one fan has taken that philosophy to the extreme by compiling all The Force Awakens rumors and putting them together into a plot synopsis for the entire movie.

Keep in mind that since this was put together with rumors (some very credible) that along with the inevitable inaccuracies, there are also plenty of details in here that are 100% correct. So if you choose to read on, beware of some potential massive spoilers. Read below at your own risk! Read More »

Star Wars world of color

The 60th Anniversary of Disneyland kicks off this weekend with a ton of great events. We covered a bunch of them here, but one we didn’t was the updated World of Color. World of Color is an elaborate show that takes place at Disney’s California Adventure, and combines music and effects with projections displayed on a wall of water. It’s probably the most impressive nighttime event Disney does at any of their parks on either coast. For the 60th anniversary, they’ve updated the show with more of the history and future of Disney which, of course, includes Star Wars.

In including Star Wars in the new World of Color, Disney has gone one step further and included footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the show. There’s nothing new, but if seeing footage from the first two trailers projected on water with music and live physical effects sounds cool, you’re going to want to click below. There, fans who can’t make it to Disneyland to see a video of the Star Wars World of Color Segment.  Read More »

Kathleen Kennedy Boba Fett

Several weeks back, very soon after Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley did a press conference in Japan. We mentioned it on the site, but didn’t elaborate further simply because the videos were in Japanese.

First, Kennedy and Ridley talked about Rey’s fighting style in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was aided by a choreographer from Game of Thrones. Then there was a tease about the importance of Boba Fett to the Lucasfilm plan. Read the new Star Wars quotes below. Read More »
