What’s the story with the current state of Indiana Jones 5 development? Rumors have flown about a fifth movie since the release of the fourth, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. More recently, Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm led to more speculation about a fifth outing for Indy, with Lucasfilm saying that a film will happen, with no indication of when. Yet more conversations have suggested that Chris Pratt is being eyed as a replacement for original star Harrison Ford. (Pratt has denied this.)
Now there are rumors of loose plans for a 2018 release developing at Lucasfilm even as producer Frank Marshall tells us there have been “no discussions on Indy 5 to date.” Read More »

There are still more than 180 days left until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, and fans probably need all the help they can get passing the time until December 18th arrives. They’ll get some help in September when Force Friday unveils a bunch of new merchandise from Episode VII. Otherwise, you just have to bide your time until Christmas arrives.
And to help out with that, one YouTube user decided to spend his time waiting for The Force Awakens by combining all six of the Star Wars movies into a single video. I don’t mean that he edited all six movies down into a single movie. Instead, he took all six movies and put them on top of each other and played them at the same time. Watch all Star Wars movies at the same time after the jump! Read More »
When you sign on to work on a Star Wars film, you sign a huge NDA which prevents you from talking about the movie in almost any way possible (for example, see us try to get screenwriter Gary Whitta to talk about Star Wars: Rogue One here). But Star Wars: Episode VIII writer/director Rian Johnson has bet a tiny bit more forthcoming in interviews and on social media (he recently revealed the film format for his upcoming installment on twitter).
Yesterday the Looper/Brick writer/director took to twitter to relay the story of a dream he had which was to inspire a sequence in the upcoming still untitled Star Wars: Episode 8. Of course its nothing serious, but as Rian says, it is “a true story.” Read about the Rian Johnson Star Wars dream after the jump.

The first image from the second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is burned in our brains. A speeder races along a vast desert, and as the camera follows it, a crashed Star Destroyer is revealed. Soon, we learned this is the planet Jakku, home of Rey, and location of an epic battle between the Empire and Rebellion some time after Return of the Jedi. In a single shot, director J.J. Abrams tells his audience how the galaxy has changed since Jedi and sets up the world we’ll see in The Force Awakens.
Soon after that trailer was released, we found out fans will get to participate in the Battle of Jakku when the video game Star Wars Battlefront is released before The Force Awakens.
Now, fast forward to this week and E3. EA released a new trailer for Star Wars Battlefront which takes place on a desert planet and ends with a Star Destroyer crashing. Some have speculated this is our first look at the Battle of Jakku. Is that true? Find out below. Read More »
