Stormtrooper Header

In Star Wars, you can mark the passing of time through Stormtroopers. Before the Empire existed, Stormtroopers weren’t around. As war escalated, clones filled the role and fought for the Republic. Eventually, those white-suited soldiers began fighting for the Empire once the Republic fell. Then Ewoks used their heads as drums.

Which brings us to Star Wars Episode VII. We have very little idea exactly where there galaxy stands after the destruction of the second Death Star. All we know is that 30 years have passed. Much can happen in 30 years, and it seems whatever role the Stormtroopers now fill, they look different. A few photos hit the net earlier this week that may (or may not) show how the Star Wars 7 Stormtroopers look. Check out the pics below and discuss. Read More »

SimonPeggPaul

Simon Pegg won’t appear in Star Wars Episode VII, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be part of the film in some other way. In a recent interview, Pegg continued to say what he’s always said about the film. He’s a huge fan, he’s friends with writer director J.J. Abrams, he’s visited the set, but him appearing would take people out of the movie. So he continues to say he won’t be on screen in Episode VII. But he also won’t, and hasn’t, said that he’s not in the movie at all, which is now leading to speculation the Shaun of the Dead actor might provide some kind of voice or performance capture where his face wouldn’t be an issue.
