Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ character names revealed

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

The names of the new characters that appear in the first Star Wars: The Force Unleashed trailer were revealed today in a very unique way. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy shared the names with Entertainment Weekly, which posted them in a gallery. But it wasn’t just any gallery. The images from the trailer were put in the format of Topps’ iconic original Star Wars trading cards. They are: BB-8, the rolling, R2-D2-esque robot. Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), who’s seen flying in an X-Wing in the teaser. Kylo Ren (actor unknown), the mysterious hooded figure with the Stephen Colbert-approved lightsaber. Rey (Daisy Ridley), seen riding a speeder across a desert. Finn (John Boyega), the nervous-looking, helmet-less Stormtrooper, described on his card as “on the run.” Now, we don’t yet know if these are the full names for each of these characters, or if any of these names might be aliases (this is a J.J. Abrams movie, after all). We also don’t yet know the...

Potential Star Wars Episode VII Leak from 4Chan [Warning: Possible spoilers within. Read at your own risk]

Posted by on Dec 3, 2014 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

These new leaks supposedly comes from a Lucasfilm employee who provides some details on various aspects of the upcoming Star Wars movie: The Force Awakens. We cannot verify if any or all of the rumored information provided in this post is considered new material or if it is just a roundup of existing rumors that have already been posted before, but it is still a quite interesting read.   The film is dystopian and darker than Empire. Some 30-40 years have passed since Return of the Jedi, and the Empire and New Republic have been locked in a war of attrition. Everyone is languishing and sick of the war. The script, which is described as “too good for JJ Abrams”, begins in space, above a desert planet — presumably Tatooine. The opening crawl details the ongoing turmoil in the galaxy. How the fall of the Emperor left a void of power, and how the heroes of Endor went into seclusion or kept fighting. The current state of the war is described as being similar to the...

More Episode VII Rumors/Spoilers Surface

Posted by on Nov 12, 2014 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

Despite the secrecy surrounding the newest Star Wars movie currently in production, various details regarding its plot, title, character distribution and the props used in it, keep surfacing. At this pace, by the time the finished product actually hits the big screen, people will know the entire storyline and they’ll just show up to see how the director actually pulled things off. For one thing: Episode VII actually has a title now. It’s called “The Force Awakens” – a wonderfully Star Wars-y title indeed, which is a great throwback that manages to avoid being similar to past titles in the series. We kept hearing that Episode VII was going to be an extension of the original trilogy and its title really does come to confirm that. The announcement was made by Disney with surprisingly little fanfare, considering the high-profile nature of the project. In other Episode VII spoiler news: a few weeks ago rumors have been floated regarding Luke Skywalker’s (Mark Hamill) heel turn: it has...

Episode 7 Ready for Post Production?

Posted by on Oct 24, 2014 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

According to Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy, filming on Episode 7, the much-awaited Star Wars movie sequel, is about three weeks from being completed. Most of the footage is apparently done, and after the actual camerawork is finished, the movie will enter post-production, where the special effects, the sounds and the score shall be added, which will apparently take about another year to complete. Given that the above said announcement was made about a week ago at the Industrial Light and Magic Studio opening in London, it is safe to assume that the movie is indeed on track: great news for fans of the series as well as for the fans of the upcoming Battlefront title currently under production by DICE. While the actual plot tie-ins between the Episode 7 and Battlefront will be few and far between, the release of the two titles will apparently be timed to more or less coincide, as this way, each will deliver an implicit publicity-boost for the other. Back in July, things didn’t look...
