Will Luke Finally Turn to the Dark Side in The Force Awakens?

Posted by on Feb 21, 2015 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

Plot rumors about The Force Awakens are a dime a dozen, and they continue to come fast and furious, despite J.J. Abrams’ and Lucasfilm’s attempts to stifle leaks. One of the interesting potential plot points that people have been mulling over lately is Luke’s ultimate fate: will he remain a force of good? Or will he follow in Anakin’s footsteps and succumb to the lure of the Dark side? Mark Hamill has stated that he thought Luke would be headed down a Darker path at the end of the original trilogy, but that didn’t play out. Some people think that we could see it this December, but there isn’t much evidence for that. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Disney try to shatter a few people’s expectations for a typical Star Wars movie, but going as far as turning Luke to the Dark side seems a bit unlikely. The tension between Light and Dark is always a central part of the Star Wars story—in the original trilogy, it was mostly represented as...

Star Wars Ep. VII Rumor Crackdown

Posted by on Feb 20, 2015 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

We’ve been posting some of the most interesting rumors about The Force Awakens over the past few months, but it looks like that news may be slowing down in the near future. J.J. Abrams has expressed his frustration with the number of leaks coming from the Star Wars set, and it’s a safe bet that he’ll be taking a harder line with anyone who appears to be releasing information. It’s not just Abrams that’s been going after the sources of those leaks—Lucasfilm has recently started to crack down as well. A subpoena was issued by a court requiring a user called Darth_Simi to remove some images from Episode VII that he had posted on ImageShack. This is the first legal action that Lucasfilm has taken, and it looks like they’re trying to set a precedent for punishing leakers. Interestingly, there are reports that Abrams has also petitioned Disney to push up the release date of the film, possibly to as early as July. While we haven’t heard anything...

Mel Brooks confirms he wants to make “Spaceballs 2: The Search For More Money”!

Posted by on Feb 13, 2015 in Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

Remember the hilarious classic parody of Star Wars, Spaceballs? After nearly thirty years since its debut, Mel Brooks has said that he is interested in making a sequel called, Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money. While Star Wars fans all over the world are excited and constantly hearing new rumors about the new Star Wars movie, Mr. Brooks recently said that he would like to create the sequel after the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Mel Brooks was recently on a podcast with Adam Carolla, called Take a Knee, and this is when he said what the title would be and his wishes are to use as many of the same cast members as possible. This won’t be an easy task since some of the major characters have passed away. Another problem that Mr. Brooks might encounter is that of hiring Rick Moranis to play his original role. He was popular in many movies in the nineties, such as Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. He stopped acting in 1997 and later on his wife passed from breast cancer. After...

Some Interesting Theories on Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber

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

Since we first saw the trailer, Kylo Ren’s lightsaber has drawn a lot of criticism. People have said that it’s weird, complained about it, even started a hilarious meme based on it (my favorite is the Swiss army lightsaber). But a few others have given it more thought. For example, FastCo posted a great defense of the saber in which they pointed out that Luke lost a hand, Vader lost a hand twice, and Count Dooku lost both hands—all because they didn’t have a crossguard. They also have a few interesting ideas about what it says about Ren. One of the most interesting ideas that’s surfaced is that this isn’t a lightsaber at all, but a Forcesaber (an example of which is pictured above), an extremely ancient weapon that channels dark Force energy through crystals to form a blade. According to some Expanded Universe sources, the Je’daii order was split over whether or not to embrace the dark energy used for Forcesabers, causing the great divide between...

Patton Oswalt: Racist ‘Star Wars’ backlash is ‘depressing’

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

  After the release of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, Star Wars fans were in awe and thrilled about the upcoming blockbuster hit. However, racism started buzzing about the British actor John Boyega, who they featured quite a bit in the clip. Mr. Boyega is a down to earth dude and stated that the racist fans would have to “get used to it.” Some fans just didn’t like the idea of a black stormtrooper, but comedian Patton Oswalt told Vulture that this kind of hatred is ridiculous. “Oh, that’s depressing, Jesus Christ. ‘Star Wars,’ half the movie is aliens and robots, and a black guy is what set people off? I love how they’re reacting as if this is a classic novel that’s being cast — ‘I can’t believe they booked James Earl Jones to play Holden Caulfield.’ But this is a script that no one has read, so what the (bleep) are they talking about? If everyone in the original ‘Star Wars’ had been black, it still would have been a (bleep) blockbuster because the movie would...
