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. Check it out below. Read More »

It figures it would come to this. TMZ is now the leading Star Wars spy in the world. One day after releasing some very interesting photos from the Abu Dhabi set, the gossip website has come upon twenty new photos taken inside J.J. Abrams‘ secret soundstages. Inside those buildings a few massive sets are under construction, including what’s unmistakably the Millennium Falcon and an X-Wing Fighter. There are also new looks at the alien revealed earlier this week.

When the first photo posted of the initial grouping of cast members for Star Wars: Episode VII, some critics quickly jumped on the film for only adding one new female role. Those who were paying any attention, however, saw that the leaked Star Wars casting breakdowns featured multiple roles for women. The trade papers did their homework, and hours later reported that two more female roles were yet to be cast. Today those actresses were announced. (You can read about that here.)
With so much negative second-guessing and uninformed ranting about a story and characters we don’t even know anything about yet, I thought I’d point out something positive.

When Return of the Jedi ends, the whole gang is there: Luke, Leia, Han, Lando, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2, even Hayden Christensen, via the “magic” of Special Editions. There’s also a very special X-Wing pilot: Wedge Antilles, played by Denis Lawson. The Rebel pilot has been with the Rebellion longer than most of the main characters, having contributed to the destruction of both Death Stars and more. Along with Luke, he’s one of the outfit’s few surviving fighter pilots.
Wedge’s tangential importance in the Star Wars universe, coupled with a huge fan following, made the character a good candidate to return in J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars Episode VII. However, a few months back, the actor said he’d only return if the role was bigger this time around. Now, it seems Lawson was approached to return for the film but turned it down.
