Star Wars Episode 8 Star Tours Update

For those out there who are both hardcore fans of Star Wars and frequent attendees of Disney theme parks, today brings some good news for the developing update that will be Star Wars Land.

As we’ve known for awhile now that Disneyland and Disneyworld, specifically Disney’s Hollywood Studios section, will be getting a huge new attraction in the form of a section dedicated entirely to Star Wars. It’s going to take years for this attraction to be built, but we’ve seen various renderings of what kind of experience this new part of the park will offer.

Now a new piece of concept art shows us how Star Wars Land will shimmer at night, and we also have word that one particular update to the Star Wars experience at Disney theme parks will arrive long before Star Wars Land opens.

Star Wars Paper

It’s no secret that merchandise is the bread and butter of the profits that come from owning the rights to the Star Wars saga. Anything and everything has been branded with the Star Wars logo, aliens, vehicles and all sorts of things from a galaxy far, far away. And just when we thought we’d seen it all, one company delivers something that has no good reason for existing.

The office supply company Quill is now selling Star Wars branded photocopy paper. What’s so special about this Star Wars paper? The answer might surprise you. Read More »

BB-8 Voice Featurette - Ben Schwartz Recording

By now all Star Wars fans have heard that development for the voice of the beloved ball droid BB-8 in Star Wars: The Force Awakens started by using comedians Ben Schwartz and Bill Hader to record dialogue that would later be replaced by sound effects. However, this process has only been explained to us by those two actors, both in a Reddit AMA video and in a separate interview. Now a clip from one of the featurettes you’ll find on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D collector’s edition Blu-ray shows Ben Schwartz recording dialogue for BB-8, and it’s thoroughly entertaining.

star wars episode 8 character details

We’re still over a year away from Star Wars: Episode VIII, yet I feel like we are much more in the dark about Rian Johnson‘s of the Star Wars saga than we were about JJ Abrams film this far before release. When Star Wars 8 began production back in February 2016, it was announced that Oscar winner Benicio del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran were joining the cast in undisclosed roles. We’ve heard rumblings over the past year and a half about del Toro’s villain role, but we really haven’t heard anything substantial from the rumor mill, until now. Hit the jump to find out what we learned from the rumored Star Wars Episode 8 character details.
