Star Wars The Force Awakens stormtrooper

Star Wars 7 News found a quote about an effects worker in Essex who said the filmmakers “bought every gas-bottled air gun in England when they arrived because they wanted the Stormtroopers’ guns to have a kick when they fired them. You don’t have to fake it; it looks real.” Pretty cool.

Speaking of those Stormtroopers, two actors claim to be in the shot above have been talking about it on Facebook. Nothing revealing but they do tease that the short one is significant. Making Star Wars has the info.

Amiss all the madness of the Sony Pictures leak, one of the emails revealed that David Fincher joked about Adam Driver‘s casting in The Force Awakens being a bad thing. It was a total joke, a way to divert the conversation from the topic at hand, but it’s a little fun nonetheless. Direct link here.

The official Star Wars Twitter put up this behind the scenes photo from the filming of the Star Wars: Special Edition. It may have been posted to silence anyone hating on John Boyega.

A new Star Wars novel is on the way and, like every other new piece of content release from now on, it’s canon. It’s called Star Wars: Dark Disciple by Christie Golden! Featuring Asajj Ventress and the Jedi Quinlan Vos, the book is based on several unaired episodes of The Clone Wars. It’ll be released July 7, 2015 and revealed the cover.
