Update From Editor Peter Sciretta: Disney has released a video showing Mark Hamill playing around with the lightsaber at his DisneyWorld photoshoot with Mickey Mouse. Last time I saw Hamill at Comic-Con he was large — Its nice to see Hamill has gotten back in shape for Episode VII. The original story from Germain follows and the new video is embedded after the jump.
We all know what a thirty-year-old Mark Hamill looks like holding a lightsaber. That’s it above. But what does a sixty year old Hamill look like? That’s the question fans have been wondering for sometime as the actor gets ready to return to the role of Luke Skywalker for J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars Episode VII.
Hamill has yet to start shooting the film, though. He’s instead fulfilling some other Disney/Star Wars duties. The actor is currently in Orlando, Florida for Star Wars Weekends at Walt Disney World and posed with a lightsaber, giving fans some idea of what to expect come December 18, 2015. He also talked to the local paper about his training for the film and the crazy spoiler culture. See Star Wars 7 Mark Hamill and read his quotes below.

In response to all the leaked photos from the set of Star Wars Episode VII, writer and director J.J. Abrams used the Bad Robot Twitter account to send a note to fans. It says “I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII and making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie.” But the background behind the note makes the text very funny.

Fans have been waiting years for The Wonder Years to make it back into their homes. Since ending its run in 1993, the show played in reruns and finally appeared on Netflix last year. But even so, the original episodes with the original music have never made it to the DVD format. That changed recently when StarVista announced they’d be releasing the series the way it was intended in late 2014.
Since then, work on the set has apparently continued as several of the show’s original stars – Fred Savage, Josh Saviano, Danica McKellar and Jason Hervey – took to social media Wednesday to post photos of a Wonder Years reunion. Check those out below. Read More »

Briefly: Lots of rumors have been circulating in recent days in regards to Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World. Is it set at a park? Is that park functioning? Are there good dinosaurs there? Have humans tamed the dinosaurs? We’ll hopefully have some answers to those questions soon. In the meantime, the director took to Twitter to tease a few of those answers.
He’s posted an image of a Jurassic World patch for “Veterinary Services.” Check it out below. Read More »
We recently saw the first couple photos from filming on Star Wars Episode VII, and now a new image has surfaced. This one does not show a set or a costume, or even a physical place. It is a note from J. J. Abrams to the crew (and likely intended to be read by all of us) that features a bit of wry humor: “Amazing but true: the world awaits this film.” Check out the note below.

It’s no secret Cameron Crowe had problems giving his 2000 semi-autobiographical film a title. At one point it was actually called Untitled, a clever nod to the musical story held within, as well as an admission of defeat. The studio wouldn’t let that fly, so Crowe went through many different titles before settling on Almost Famous. And it’s a perfect title.
For a contribution to the 300th issue of Empire Magazine, Crowe dug up the original notebook pages where he brainstormed all kinds of different titles for the movie, much like William Miller does during the credits of the film. Check out Cameron Crowe’s alternate Almost Famous titles below. Read More »
