Empire Strikes Back Mark Hamill Yoda

We don’t know what the Star Wars stand alone movies are going to be about. Initially, there was the belief these films, which Disney will release between the regular episode installments, would be origin story stories. Rumors focused heavily on Han Solo, Boba Fett and Yoda. As time moves on, however, that seems less and less likely. Now, the more rumblings you hear about the Star Wars stand alone films, the more it seems like they’re going to be stories that live between the other films both on the release calendar and in the Star Wars canon. They may tell stories about smaller, tangential characters that expand and enhance the Episodes. They may even solve some of the unsolved mysteries of the Star Wars universe.

Now, to be fair, we can’t be sure this is the case. For all we know, director Gareth Edwards and writer Gary Whitta will release an origin film as the first stand-alone project on December 16, 2016. But that’s probably not going to happen. No matter what their film or Josh Trank’s 2018 film is, we have a bunch of Star Wars mysteries we think would make good stand alone movies at some point down the road. Read More »

J.J. Abrams Star Wars Force Awakens

Wednesday, a very credible sounding rumor began to circulate that the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be attached to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Well, we’ve heard from a very credible source that, with 100% certainty, the Star Wars 7 trailer won’t debut with Peter Jackson’s latest The Hobbit film. There’s a very strong likelihood it will play with that film but according to the source, Disney has “bigger plans” for the trailer debut than a simple attachment. What does that mean? When will it happen? We honestly don’t know. But we’ll offer up a few suggestions about the Star Wars 7 trailer release below. Read More »

Trivia: R2-D2 Almost Starred in ‘The Lego Movie’

The Lego Movie

The Master Builders of The Lego Movie were an eclectic bunch. There were Batman and all of his fellow Justice Leaguers, Gandalf and Dubbledore (sorry, Dumbledore), Shaq, Abraham Lincoln, Michelangelo (the painter) and Michelangelo (the turtle). One that didn’t make it in, however, was R2-D2.

Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller revealed they originally planned for the lovable droid to be a main character in the The Lego Movie, in keeping with the gleeful mash-up spirit of the film. But in the final product, he’s nowhere to be seen. Find out why the R2-D2 Lego Movie appearance never happened after the jump.

Star Wars fans have two dates circled on their 2015 calendar. Of course, there’s December 18, when Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters. Then there’s April 16, when Star Wars Celebration comes to Anaheim, CA.

Celebration is basically Comic-Con but only for Star Wars stuff, with plenty of vendors, panels and opportunities for fans to talk to and engage with the people who make Star Wars, Star Wars.
