Del Rey has announced their Celebration Orlando activities, and they’ll have three panels. The biggest, which will feature what’s “in the works for 2017 and beyond” is Saturday at 1:00 p.m. and will have authors Chuck Wendig, Christie Golden, Timothy Zahn, and Delilah S. Dawson, plus Del Rey’s Elizabeth Schaefer. There’s also five University talks […]
Disney CEO Bob Iger dropped a couple of things about the two Star Wars films in production – and those beyond. (The ever-vague “starting talks.”) He was most detailed on the Han Solo film. It will span 6 years – Alden Ehrenreich’s Han from the ages of 18 to 24 – and deal with him […]
In today’s Rogue One reveal, Riz Ahmed talks to Entertainment Weekly on how his character changed throughout the process, what was reshot, and his own ideas for Bodhi’s backstory. Meanwhile, Entertainment Tonight has Ahmed’s many audition tapes, which are a bonus feature on the home release.
Woody Harrelson revealed his Star Wars character’s name on Jimmy Fallon last night: Beckett. (That’s the standard spelling, anyway.) He’s “kind of a criminal” and a “mentor” (as we knew) to Han Solo. There are no previously-existing characters with that name in Star Wars. But hopefully this means no one will ask him about Garris […]
We got an early announcement that Celebration Orlando will be livestreamed, just like the last two. Straight from the most correct time zone! (For those not on EDT, here’s a handy tool. Customize it!) All that, plus a few more guests, newspaper comic reprints, and ILM’s Hal Hickel talks about Rogue One on today’s Star […]
We learned in The Art of Rogue One that Jyn’s mother was a Jedi in early drafts of the film, but Gareth Edwards and Gary Whitta go into much more detail with Entertainment Weekly on why they choose otherwise. Galen was always the scientist in the pairing, and Chirrut Imwe was developed to bring in […]
The third season of Rebels wraps up this Saturday with ‘Zero Hour.’ It’ll debut Saturday morning at 11:00 a.m. ET/PT, with repeats at 5:00 p.m., 8:00 p.m., 10:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. More stills under the cut.
Here’s another early draft Rogue One tidbit from Entertainment Weekly and Gary Whitta: Darth Vader’s original victim weren’t nameless Rebel soldiers, but a major character in the film. The piece also includes a new video. Meanwhile, here’s some behind-the-scenes videos from the filming, including a feature on Alan Tudyk K-2SO.
Screenwriter Gary Whitta tells Entertainment Weekly about Rogue One’s original ending today, and why it ended up scrapped long before filming started. We also get an explanation for why some of the early Jyn toys labeled her as Rebel sergeant. Rogue One will be out in digital on Friday (March 24,) with Blu-ray and DVD […]
