Just before the release of The Force Awakens, Kathleen Kennedy fanned the flames of intrigue when she said that Lucasfilm were actively looking into the plans for Star Wars: Underworld, the long-in-concept Star Wars live action TV show. But don’t get too excited—if anything does happen, it’s not happening any time…
Behold the GalacTac Project, an armor prototype being designed by AR5000 that happens to look just a tad like everyone’s favorite Star Wars bounty hunter. But look fast.
There’s suddenly a storm of outburts about a week-old interview that George Lucas had with Charlie Rose. It’s the one where he compared selling Lucasfilm to Disney as selling his children to “white slavers.” This was a stupid thing to say, but not really a new note for Lucas to hit.
You thought they were done releasing snifters of new Star Wars footage in endless trailers and TV spots, now that we’re just a week away from the release of The Force Awakens. Well, think again! A new international Chinese trailer has hit the web, and it’s positively filled with new snippets.
When Disney purchased Lucasfilm, the company prematurely ended plans for two major projects—Star Wars: Underworld, a live-action TV show, and the video game Star Wars 1313, both of which would’ve followed the seedy underworld of Coruscant. But in surprising news, neither project might truly be as dead as we thought.
When news officially broke that Lucasfilm and Disney were making a film about a young Han Solo, the immediate question was “Who could possibly play him?” A new report begins to craft an answer, and that answer is, “Almost anybody.”
Sure, we’ve had teaser trailers and cast announcements and all that hooplah, but it doesn’t really start to sink in that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is nearly here until you get a lovely big movie poster—and here’s the one shown off at D23, looking rather fantastic.
At a certain point in life, you learn about pleasure in moderation. A lot of something is great, until you get sick of it. A slow, steady enjoyment has always worked though and as a Star Wars fan, the aggressive plan for the franchise may sound good—but it also scares the living shit out of me.
Now that the Oculus Rift has made virtual reality not suck, countless companies are lining up to produce ground-breaking interactive content. But the most exciting could come from Industrial Light & Magic, the special effects company behind Star Wars, Jurassic World, and countless other blockbusters.
There are so many things that purport to be pieces of concept art, plot details, information on the state of Luke Skywalker's possible cold, etc. on the Internet these days, it's actually shocking we haven't seen Disney step in more. Could this mean that this leaked image was the real deal?
I keep getting my dreams shattered. When I was a kid I thought the Rebel Alliance hangar could have been a real stage but it was just one of many matte paintings, an example of ILM's visual sorcery. But the scene of the Emperor coming to the Death Star? I was absolutely, 100-percent convinced that it was real.
We only first heard about Lucasfilm's new CG animated movie Strange Magic when it was announced a week and a half ago as a musical semi-remake of A Midsummer Night's Dream with pop songs. Now the first trailer is here, and unfortunately it looks like stuff we've seen many times before.
Every year, ILM and other tenants at San Francisco's Letterman Digital Arts Center take part in a sidewalk Chalk Art contest - and this year's competition had some wonderful Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Disney inspired art. Take a look!
The Episode VII director has released another video for Force for Change, the Lucasfilm-led charity organization, which is offering another chance to star in the new movie. But he's also made sure people pay attention by including the first look at the new design of Star Wars' iconic X-Wing, too.
StarWars.com has just officially announced Josh Trank, director of Chronicle and currently hard at work on Fox's Fantastic Four reboot, has been officially hired to direct one of the stand-alone Star Wars movies.
Patience, young padawan. The official release date for Star Wars: Episode VII was just announced, and it's December 18, 2015. That gives J.J. Abrams a bit more time, and gets the film out of the Avengers/Man of Steel 2/Jurassic Park/Terminator/everything else logjam. Of course, as Ursus-Veritas points out, this could…
People have been wondering why J.J. Abrams took the Episode VII screenwriting duties from Toy Story 3's Michael Arndt. According to Abrams, there's no insidious conspiracy and Arndt wasn't doing a bad job (at least that they're admitting to) — it's all about the scheduling.
Apparently Star Wars: Episode VII was not Disney's idea. According to his son Jett, George Lucas was outlining future installments to the Star Wars saga a full year before Lucasfilm was sold to Disney — and Jett had more sequel secrets to reveal, too.
Remember Seth Green's animated Star Wars series Detours? Seth Green does. He gave an update on the show during his Reddit AMA yesterday, where he announced that 39 full episodes of the show are completely finished, along with many more scripts too — but they're all on hold.
In what might be the most bombad idea of the year, a Disney executive has revealed that those Star Wars stand-alone movies that have been discussed will be prequels — specifically, origin stories, potentially focused on characters like Han Solo, Yoda, or that guy on Cloud City with the ice cream maker.
