episode 8 set photos

Like with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, production on Star Wars: Episode 8 has managed to keep its veil of secrecy almost completely intact. Other than distant photographs of the sets being constructed in Ireland and blurry photos of aliens and stuntmen in Dubrovnik, Disney and Lucasfilm’s investment in extensive security (which reportedly includes drones designed to take down other drones equipped with cameras) has paid off. So far. Filming isn’t done yet.

Our best look at the film’s sets so far have come from director Rian Johnson, who occasionally shares behind-the-scenes images on his social media. Now, he’s shared two new images and announced that filming had officially reached the halfway point.

How to Build Rey's Blaster

Even though Obi-Wan Kenobi finds blasters to be uncivilized compared to the more elegant weapon that is the lightsaber, for a short while, a blaster is all Rey has to defend herself when the First Order is in pursuit in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Han Solo hands the weapon over to Rey, and even though it doesn’t fare well against the Kylo Ren’s Force powers and cross guard lightsaber, she’s still a pretty good shot with it, and the weapon certainly packs a decent punch.

Now if you’re looking to build your own version of Rey’s blaster, either for cosplay or for a little prop replica display in your office, a professional prop maker has assembled a homemade version of the gun that you can build yourself if you have the right tools.

Find out how to build Rey’s blaster after the jump. Read More »

star wars bloodline

A steady stream of Star Wars novels have been published since Disney wiped out the original expanded universe and started rebuilding the larger canon from scratch, but only a few of them have felt like required reading. The upcoming Star Wars: Bloodline is being promoted as something more than just another story set in this beloved universe – it sounds essential to understanding the state of the galaxy as seen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Now, it’s been revealed that Star Wars: Episode 8 director Rian Johnson contributed to the novel in some capacity, which is an intriguing prospect. It certainly sounds like the seeds of the next movie will be found here.
