No Qui-Gon Jinn Appearances Planned for Episode VII

Posted by on Sep 11, 2014 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

Although Liam Neeson would apparently be happy to reprise his Star Wars role as Qui-Gon Jinn, he has not been asked to appear in the upcoming Episode VII. In a recent interview, the actor said he would be happy to slip back into the iconic Star Wars character if needed, and that he certainly wouldn’t want someone else to pick up the role. He also admitted though that he knew nothing about the story to be featured by Episode VII, but he suspected it was built around a different generation of characters, one that his own came well before. Given the flexibility of the Star Wars universe however, and the way it can be expanded, there’s little the producers couldn’t pull off if they wanted to in a way that would fit perfectly into the lore. If they wanted Neeson back in the movie, they could bring him back as a Force Ghost for instance. That is pure speculation though. The cast of Episode VII is already jam-packed with top-notch talent like Oscar-winning Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline...

What do the future Star Wars films hold for us? Fans everywhere are at the edge of their seats waiting for any new information about the films. Well, here’ s a little update. Rian Johnson says the next ‘Star Wars’ will have less CGI and more practical effects. At the time of the first trilogy, the special effects were new and all the rage. Now, we’ve seen that happen time and time again in Hollywood. Hollywood Reporter has this to say: As if videos from the set of J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars movie featuring live-action alien costumes and full-scale X-Wing Fighters haven’t been enough of a clue, Rian Johnson, who will pick up the franchise after Abrams, says Star Wars: Episode VII will feature more practical, traditional effects. “They’re doing so much practical building for this one. It’s awesome,” Johnson said on the latest Girls in Hoodies podcast. “I think people are coming back around to [practical effects]. It feels like there is sort of that gravity pulling...

Star Wars: Episode VII Rumors and Leaks

Posted by on Aug 18, 2014 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

Following up on Elrik post, I wanted to make a run down on all the newest rumors on Star Wars: Episode 7. Could there be a spy behind the scenes of Star Wars Episode VII? Or maybe some of these leaks were done on purpose? The Star Wars franchise is notorious for being tight-lipped about developments and productions but recently there has been a surge of photos leaked out from the set of the new film leaking concept art and props. Disney and Lucasfilm did not comment on the leak and whether or not the photos are legit (which is to be expected). So for now we have to treat this like a rumor but it’s a very interesting rumor indeed. Here are some of the things being leaked that has people talking: New Stormtrooper helmets – Indie Revolver’s Jay Carlson made a post with some images of what was supposed to be a new Stormtrooper helmet for the new movie. It’s similar to the original helmets but with a few sleek upgrades the well-trained eye will be able to notice. This...

Star Wars Episode 7: Rumor Roundup (June Edition)

Posted by on Jun 25, 2014 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

We have been hearing some more rumors about Episode 7 and we thought it a good time to do another roundup of what we have heard so far. As always, remember that these rumors are just that for now- rumors. Some are later confirmed to be true in part or in entirety but many more are confirmed a bust. So take it with a grain of salt but it’s also fun to speculate, especially when the company is being so tight-lipped about it. With a franchise like Star Wars, it’s usually the case that not even staff knows 100% what will be real and not until the very end. Here are some rumors from Latino Review: There will be a female villain. Over 50% sure she’s a Sith. I’ll follow up on this in later weeks. Despite having 30 Years after Jedi to set one up, there is NO New Republic at the start of Episode VII. Boba-Fett-similar armor is around. Probably not for the man himself. Mandalorians? Clone drama? Still unclear on a plot/character connection. John Boyega isn’t a Jedi or a Padawan at...
