Star Wars: Episode VII: James Bond Says You’ll Need To Bundle Up On An Ice Planet

fb share tweet share

Roger-Moore-james-bond-BWNews about J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII seems to come in waves. We won’t hear anything for a bit, then every day for a week there are rumors and set photos and reports and concept art. Some of it has come from unlikely sources, but this latest tidbit comes from perhaps the most unlikely yet, James Bond. Or at least from a James Bond, in this case Roger Moore.

There’s nothing super SPOILER-y in this, but if you’re sensitive to such things, you may want to steer clear.

Star Wars Rebels: The Movie Gets A Trailer And A TV Spot

fb share tweet share

The biggest thing to happen in science fiction between now and the time that Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar drops in early November is probably going to be the premiere of Star Wars Rebels. It may not be Episode VII, the movie we’re all waiting for, but the animated series is the newest official addition to the Star Wars canon, and that’s always going to be met with excitement. As we’re only a week or so away, Disney and Lucasfilm have released a new trailer and TV spot to hype the debut and the ongoing series.

This first video is the trailer for what they’re calling Star Wars Rebels: The Movie, which is, in reality, an hour long special that we’ve been told up to this point is called “The Spark of Rebellion.” Ahead of Rebels regularly scheduled timeslot on Disney XD, it will make its premiere on Disney Channel on Friday, October 3.

Director J.J. Abrams has been doling out a steady diet of fan service as the production of Episode VII has rolled on, tossing out videos that highlight his commitment to using practical effects as much as possible in the new Star Wars film. We’ve seen alien creatures and a full-size X-wing fighter, but the latest video is the best one yet. Even if you’re skeptical about Abrams’ take on the Star Wars universe, see if this doesn’t give you goosebumps.

Star Wars: C-3PO Had Two Demands Before Returning For Episode VII

fb share tweet share

C-3POThere are a number of stars from George Lucas’ original Star Wars trilogy returning for the J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, but for all the talk about Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford (especially after he broke his leg on set), one name we haven’t mentioned much is Anthony Daniels. His C-3PO is a vital component to the franchise, not to mention the character has appeared in more of the films that just about anyone else. There was a question of whether or not the actor would actually don the golden suit once again, and he did have a couple of demands before he would commit to reprising his most notable role one more time.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Daniels discussed how he came to be in Episode VII, and in the process, he also revealed the two things that he required to return to that far, far away galaxy. One of the qualifications was that he would, again, physically climb into his signature suit. Recounting a conversation he had with Abrams where the director brought up doing just voice work, Daniels said, “There’s no way I would do just the voice.” And there’s no way we want him to do just the voice.

Star Wars: Episode VII Photo Features An Unexpected X-Wing Pilot

star wars episode viiWhat do you think you know about Star Wars: Episode VII? You know that Harrison Ford is returning to reprise his role of Han Solo, but do you really know that? I mean, what if he’s playing an evil replicant version of Han Solo and J.J. Abrams & Co. are just dicking around with the fans? Which brings us to a set photo, the latest of many, that shows off what looks to be Adam Driver, the Girls star who was cast in a role that many suspect is one of the film’s villains. The thing is, he was recently spotted wearing an X-Wing pilot suit.

Empire Strikes Back Gets A Quentin Tarantino Style Fan Edit

fb share tweet share

You probably have something very important to do with your day, like paint your house before the rainy season starts, run a bunch of vital errands, or pick up a loved one at the hospital. In reality, I should have said, you had something important to do today, because whatever it was that you were going to do, that’s going to have to wait. You have to love the combination of the internet and free time because it so often results in things like Pulp Empire, which, if the title didn’t clue you in already, is The Empire Strikes Back (the best of the original trilogy) completely reedited in the distinct directorial style of Quentin Tarantino. And yes, it’s as good as that sounds.

The full movie is 89-minutes long, so before you dive in, you should watch the trailer, which is embedded above for your convenience, to get a better idea of exactly what you’re in for. Then again, you all are an intrepid bunch, so it won’t surprise me if you simply jump in head first without even testing the waters (that’s not a bad strategy, because the water is just damn fine).
