The first step to Episode VII takes place Friday night when Star Wars Rebels debuts on The Disney Channel. Set between Episodes III and IV, the cartoon is the first piece of new content being released under the Disneyfied Star Wars umbrella, which boasts a fully connected universe. Rebels is 100% part of the Star Wars canon and will not only set the tone for Episode VII next year, it will have teases toward it too. Plus, on it’s own, it’s a fantastic thrill-ride seeped in what makes Star Wars great. That doesn’t hurt.
For those reasons, Disney has the utmost confidence in the show and, the day before the first season premieres, they’ve already renewed Star Wars Rebels for Season 2. Read More »

A day without Star Wars rumors is like a day without sunshine. Earlier today, we ran a few of the latest and like any good virus, a bunch of others have sprouted up around them. The most interesting has to do with the the home of Daisy Ridley‘s character, referred to on set as Kira. Multiple sources confirm not only where she lives, what she lives inside, and it’s probably a good size spoiler.
The second has to do with the role played by Max Von Sydow. We know he’s cast in the movie, but we haven’t heard much about who he’s playing outside of speculation. A new report has an idea, and it’s not at all what anyone guessed. Read more about the latest Star Wars 7 rumors below. Read More »

Trying to figure out the plot to Star Wars Episode VII is like putting together a messed up puzzle. There’s no guide, people are forging pieces, and we don’t know what connects to what. Even pieces we think are correct could potentially be total crap. We won’t have a real idea until we learn the title and see some footage, both of which are likely several months away.
Still, the impossible construction of the secretive plot is fun and today two new rumors enter the mix. One details a potential early scene in the film and a second calls into question several plot points we’ve pretty much accepted as fact. Read both the new Star Wars 7 rumors below. Read More »
The only real way to see a Christopher Nolan movie is in IMAX. The filmmaker specifically makes his films for the large screen format, and with each subsequent movie he innovates in multiple ways. For his latest film, Interstellar, Nolan put IMAX cameras on planes to capture new footage. In the coming weeks, we’ll surely hear more about his IMAX use. Film projection in IMAX is important to him, too, and the flagship location, the TCL Chinese Theater IMAX, is specifically putting in a film projector for Nolan’s movie.
So we’ll say again: the only real way to see a Christopher Nolan movie is in IMAX. And it turns out, you’ll have a chance to do that a few days earlier than anywhere else. Multiple IMAX theaters are selling tickets to see the Interstellar IMAX experience on November 4, three days ahead of the wide November 7 opening. Read More »
