Oscar Isaac Star Wars Force Awakens header

This is a great story. Speaking to Vulture, Poe Dameron himself, Oscar Isaac, explained that his family was so excited he got cast in Star Wars, he even got his Uncle – a massive fan – a visit to the set. There, J.J. Abrams asked him if he wanted to be in the movie as an extra. Talk about a dream come true. Isaac also let the detail that he’s flying an X-Wing slip on the set of A Most Violent Year, but director JC Chandor kept it secret.

A funny meme that was going around last week during The Interview controversy:

Star Wars Underground posted a podcast where they claim Lupita¬†Nyong’o‘s character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is “an elderly, female alien with orange skin.” Um, what? Head there for more.

Last week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly was all about 2015 and in their Force Awakens article, they made a “bold prediction.” That prediction was the film would gross¬†$225 million opening weekend and end up at $3 billion overall. That would be the #1 opening of all time and top grossing movie of all time. Thoughts?

Finally, Making Star Wars and Star Wars 7 News have a bunch of very interesting, potentially spoilery, new concept art descriptions, rumors and plot points for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Here’s the gist of each one, with a link, if you’d like to read more. We suggest you do but only at your own peril.
