Rey in the force awakens ending

I’m headed to London for Star Wars Celebration 2016, which runs from July 15th to July 17th 2016 at the ExCeL London Exhibition Centre. Some big Star Wars announcements and reveals are expected to come out of the weekend, and we’ll be covering it live from the U.K. So stay tuned for our coverage beginning Friday and going throughout the weekend.

When Disney Animation Studios announced they were making a big announcement a couple weeks back, I listed a few possible predictions and was able to nail it exactly: Wreck-It Ralph 2 was announced, pushing back Gigantic which still needs some work. And this weekend Finding Dory overtook Captain America: Civil War to become the highest grossing film of the summer so far, nailing my #1 spot prediction for this year’s Summer Movie Wager. So while I’m on a roll, I thought I’d try to guess what we might discover from Star Wars Celebration 2016.

new star wars canon

It’s an interesting time to be a Star Wars fan. The old expanded universe may be gone, but the new canon that the Lucasfilm story group has been carefully overseeing has been mostly successful, telling stories set in this beloved universe that always feel like they matter and are always pushing characters into interesting new places. For the first time in years, keeping up with the canon feels fresh and fun and maybe even necessary to fully appreciate what’s going on in the grand scheme of things.

Which brings us to the other side of this double-edged sword: how many of us have that kind of time? Chuck Wendig‘s new novel, Star Wars: Aftermath – Life Debt, hits stores today and I’ll be brutally honest and just say that I have no idea when I’ll be able to carve out the time to read it. However, this is a case where the internet is our mutual friend. If you want to stay on top of the broad strokes of what’s going on in the space between Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’ve got you covered.

star wars episode 8 set photos

One of the great pleasures in keeping an eye on the production of Star Wars: Episode 8 over the past few months has been watching director Rian Johnson remain his usual self despite the gargantuan size of his latest film. This may be the biggest film he’s made yet, dwarfing the likes of Looper, Brick, and The Brothers Bloom, but Johnson’s social media presence has stayed on point: he’s smart, funny, informative, and often adorably weird. Oh, and he does what he can to share images from the set, giving fans something to talk about while everything else about the movie (like it’s actual title) remain under wraps.

Filming on Episode 8 is in its final weeks (Mark Hamill says the production is set to wrap up on July 22), but that hasn’t stooped Johnson from sharing images and goofy jokes straight from the set. On this miserable Friday at the end of a very miserable week (have you checked the news lately?), this is the kind of breather we all need right now. See the Star Wars Episode 8 set photos after the jump.
