Star Wars The Art Awakens

We’re heading into the home stretch of waiting for Star Wars: The Force Awakens with just over a month left until the film hits theaters on December 17th. And along with the onslaught of TV spots that will be arriving to help promote the film, there will be plenty of other Star Wars events and promotions, like Gallery 1988’s The Art Awakens show.

The exhibition opened last night with a slew of new artwork from over 60 artists, paying tribute to the original Star Wars trilogy (with some influence from the prequels) and The Force Awakens. J.J. Abrams (seen above in a photo from our own Peter Sciretta) and Lawrence Kasdan even attended the event last night.

And for those interested, there are a couple of pieces that may provide some insight into the forthcoming sequel. Read More »

where is luke skywalker

We know for a fact that Mark Hamill is in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Somewhere. He’s credited on the poster. His voice is heard in the second trailer, quoting one of his original trilogy lines of dialogue. We’ve even seen one quick glimpse of him. Regarding the picture at the top of this article: who else would have a robot hand, wear a black robe, and touch R2-D2 with such a affection?

However, confirmation that he’s in the movie hasn’t kept curious fans from wondering exactly what’s up with the galaxy’s last Jedi Knight. Now, director J.J. Abrams is here to field the big “Where is Luke Skywalker?” question without spoiling anything.

new star wars footage

It’s been one helluva busy week for Star Wars: The Force Awakens news. With a little over a month to go before J.J. Abram‘s heavily anticipated, long-awaited sequel to the most popular movie franchise of all time arrives in theaters, the floodgates have begun to open. The mystery box is no more. This new extended TV spot contains more action and excitement and character beats than most of the previous full trailers. It’s madness. But, you know, the good kind of madness. The kind you want to engage in.

You don’t need us to tell you this, but you can watch the new Star Wars footage after the jump.

supreme leader snoke

Our first and only proper tease of Andy SerkisStar Wars: The Force Awakens character, Supreme Leader Snoke, arrived almost a year ago. It was his gravelly croak of a voice that spoke over the first trailer, the same batch of footage that gave us our first glimpse of Adam Driver‘s Kylo Ren, John Boyega‘s Finn, Oscar Isaac‘s Poe Dameron, and the instantly beloved BB-8. Since that teaser, we’ve learned our fair share about most of those characters, but Snoke remains an enigma. All we know is what we’ve scraped off the bottom of the internet rumor pile and even that remains questionable.

Well, that was true until right now. Serkis has finally opened up about his mysterious villain, who is supposedly intended to be a key figure who looms over the next few films in the series. In a new interview, the veteran character actor and motion-capture pioneer offered our first official information about Snoke, including why he had to be a digital character.

All of the Supreme Leader Snoke news you want (as well as a new The Force Awakens IMAX poster!) after the jump.

star wars maz kanata

When Star Wars: The Force Awakens news rains, it pours. But unlike the eternally damp planet of Kamino, this is one downpour you probably don’t mind getting stuck in. Unless you don’t like Star Wars and in that case, we are oh-so-very sorry for how irritating the next few weeks will be for you. We’ll try to stop throwing made-up words like “Kamino” around if that will help.

Today’s dispatch from the Star Wars front lines involves two compelling items of interest. First of all, a new (and brief) TV spot for The Force Awakens has arrived, giving fans a glimpse at a few precious seconds of new footage. Second, director J.J. Abrams has finally opened up about Maz Kanata, the mysterious alien character played by Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o. After keeping her under wraps for the better part of a year, the always-cagey Abrams has offered up a few scraps of information about her backstory and mysterious abilities.

Hit the jump for the Maz Kanata backstory and to watch the new batch of footage. While no one goes into anything too specific about the plot of The Force Awakens, tread cautiously if you want to go in as blind as possible.
