Star Wars: Episode VIII Rumors: Two Female Leads Added

Posted by on Oct 7, 2015 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

The speculation never ends with the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VIII. In the latest of rumors are some stories about film casting. There is supposedly a new female lead with a shortlist of actresses to include Gina Rodriguez, Tatiana Maslany, and Olivia Cooke. Rumors said this female casting was for a role with John Boyega. But now there is a new rumor that there is another female lead being cast and Gugu Mbathha-Raw has auditioned for the role. This would mean there is not just one but TWO substantial female leads in the new film.  We also have no idea yet if these lead roles are as heroes or villains. As usual with rumors, know that they are not true until you see it in the movie and especially with a Star Wars flick, you can expect everyone to be very tight-lipped about what is actually going on. We follow the rumors because well, it’s fun! Also, because they often turn out to be true. We’ve seen the trailers, all which have given us hints and glimpses into the cast and storyline. We’ve seen leaks (many of them probably controlled “leaks”) and we’ve seen behind the scenes. We’re on the edge of our seats waiting and the suspense continues to build with the secrecy. When you think about it, this is really a fantastic marketing tactic too. When you take a legacy like this, something that so many people love and look forward to, keep it all under wraps until the very end and market smartly, you’re going to have a big winner. So speaking on rumors, what roles do you think these two female leads might...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Runtime Revealed by J.J. Abrams

Posted by on Aug 23, 2015 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

If you’ve been following the updates and news for the new Star Wars film, you might already know that a runtime has been released. During Disney’s D23 Expo, director J.J. Abrams revealed the runtime for Star Wars: The Force Awakens: 2 hours and 4 minutes. That also happens to be the same runtime as the franchise’s most beloved film, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. Of course, the movie is still being edited so this runtime could change before the movie is actually set to release in the theater, December 2015. By movie standards, that’s a little long but certainly not unbearably or unusually long. Here’s how the runtime of The Force Awakens compares to the other films: Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace Runtime: 136 min Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones Runtime: 142 min Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith Runtime: 140 min Star Wars IV: A New Hope Runtime: 121 min Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back Runtime: 124 min Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi” Runtime: 134 min So there we have it; the latest in updates and news from Abrams about the much anticipated film. Are you super excited to see it yet or trying to avoid the hype until it’s at least closer to the actual release? Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released in theaters on December 18, just in time for a holiday event. Families will be on winter break, many will be celebrating Christmas and it’s a wonderful time of year for making the kinds of memories that last a lifetime. That is what we expect (and hope) the new Star Wars film to...

Star Wars the force awakens confirmed at d23

Posted by on Jul 31, 2015 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

  The Disney D23 convention is not far away and we have learned that The Force Awakens is going to be part of the two-hour long presentation by Walt Disney Studios’ Chairman Alan Horn. Now that The Force Awakens is going to be part of the presentation, nobody is sure if Rogue One will be discussed at all. There is a slew of special guests that are supposed to appear. Maybe Andy Serkis and Lupita Nyong’o will actually appear, since they have yet to be at any conventions. However, it’s all a guessing game right now. Another huge event that is happening at D23 this year is Star Wars creator George Lucas will be honored. He will be given a Disney Legend Award, as well as six other Disney Legends. The award will be given during a presentation in the morning on Friday August 14th at 10:00am and it will be hosted by Disney CEO Bob Iger. Bob Iger had this to say: “The Disney Legend Award is our highest honor, and we are incredibly proud to recognize these eight talented individuals who have contributed so much to the world of entertainment and the Disney legacy.  The Disney Legend Award is our highest honor, and we are incredibly proud to recognize these eight talented individuals who have contributed so much to the world of entertainment and the Disney legacy.” There is no information yet on whether George Lucas will actually be at the D23 Expo to receive the award. I am sure that all Star Wars fans hope to see him there. Via Making Star Wars and Star Wars...

A New Star Wars Mobile Game Is Coming

Posted by on Jun 11, 2015 in Star Wars Uprising | 0 comments

Star Wars: Uprising is a mobile game that will be hitting phones sometime later this year, and it could provide some hints as to what’s going on with the Empire and the Rebellion after the destruction of the second Death Star. Check out the trailer: It looks like someone has arisen in wake of the Emperor’s death to take the reins of the Empire and try to regain some control over the worlds that may have thought about rebelling after the Battle of Endor. Could this provide some background for The Force Awakens? Or will these events have gone and been forgotten in the few years right after Episode VI? There’s really no way to tell. We don’t even have gameplay footage yet. It’s a nice-looking game, though, and there’s definitely potential for something cool. We’ll keep you posted on what we find...
