Jedi GoPro Video

Over the course of six Star Wars saga films (seven if you include The Clone Wars), we’ve seen plenty of lightsaber action. In fact, it might have gotten a little overwhelming in the prequels as we jumped to the double-bladed lightsaber from Darth Maul and the four lightsabers wielded by General Grievous.

But outside the realm of video games, we’ve never been able to experience the action of a Jedi in first-person. But that changes today with YouTube user Bill Parker‘s creative video of a Jedi strapping a GoPro camera to his person before taking on some Stormtroopers, and other minions of the Empire, stationed in the desert. It’s a pretty well-done little video that looks like a live-action video game.

Worst special effects

Today, technology allows for some extremely astounding special effects. However, it wasn’t always so easy to produce fantastical elements, sci-fi creatures and plane crashes.

A new supercut has collected some of the worst special effects ever seen on the big screen, and they’re pretty embarrassing to look at. Some of them are bad simply because of when they were created and they just haven’t aged well over time. Meanwhile, others seem to be have been created with little to no budget whatsover.

who should play han solo

With news surfacing that The LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller will be at the helm of a new Star Wars Anthology film focusing on a young Han Solo, everyone is wondering just who will play the charismatic smuggler.

Harrison Ford made the role iconic in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he’ll be reprising the role in The Force Awakens. But Ford can’t play a young version of the character without extensive visual effects, so some younger actor is going to have to get in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon. The question is who can pull it off?

We’ve rounded up some possibilities, some likely, some not, and some more preferable than others. Check out our list of 20 Actors Who Should Play Han Solo after the jump! Read More »

Daniel Craig Star Wars cameo

It’s no surprise that when a rumor pops up online about Star Wars, there’s usually no confirmation whatsoever, and denial is nearly as rare, usually only coming from the talent involved in the rumors. Meanwhile, Lucasfilm just sits quietly and lets the rumors flow.

However, one of the more interesting rumors that seemed to get solidified was the involvement of James Bond star Daniel Craig in a very minor role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It was a crazy rumor back in September of 2014, but then Simon Pegg seemed to confirm it, saying that 007 would be suited up as a Stormtrooper. But now Craig has fired back and denied that claim entirely. Find out more about the Daniel Craig Star Wars cameo denial below! Read More »
