Here’s How Star Wars Plans To Link Return Of The Jedi To The Force Awakens

fb share tweet share

Star WarsWe all knew that since Disney bought Lucasfilm and now owns Star Wars we were going to see that universe grow and expand like never before. There are already books, comics, and an animated series, as well as half-a-dozen movies in the works, but holy crap they are not messing around. Even though the Expanded Universe of novels and other properties that have existed for years has been scrapped, deemed non-canon, that doesn’t mean that Lucasfilm is abandoning that expansive approach, and they have plans to release an avalanche of new, officially canon material.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Disney, along with Worldwide Publishing and Lucasfilm Press, plans to release “at least 20” Star Wars books this year, a series titled Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This is all designed to capitalize on the hype surrounding the impending release of J.J. Abrams’ film, which opens December 18, and much of the ground covered falls between the original trilogy and the new films, serving as a link between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. After all, a lot can happen in 30 plus years.

We’ll have wait until December 18 to meet a bunch of new characters in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while there are a handful of familiar faces waiting for us there as well, the animated Star Wars Rebels on Disney XD has been holding it down on that front. They’ve already brought back Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi Wan Kenobi, Lando Calrissian, and others. And the hits just keep on coming, as Grand Moff Tarkin makes an appearance on the show, which you can check it out in this clip from the episode “Call to Action” below.

Tomorrowland Reveals New Stills And An Interactive Website

fb share tweet share

TomorrowlandDuring the Super Bowl this past weekend, Disney debuted a new TV spot/trailer thing for their mysterious upcoming adventure Tomorrowland, but that’s not all they’ve unveiled. It’s only a small crack, but they’re opening up the Mystery Box a wee bit, and a couple of new stills and a fancy new interactive website have crept out.

We don’t know much about Tomorrowland, but as we understand it, the story revolves round Casey (Britt Robertson), a young girl with a bright scientific mind. When her destiny becomes entangled with Frank (George Clooney), a former boy genius who is now bitter and jaded, they unearth secret details of a place called Tomorrowland that exists somewhere out in space and time, and their journey will change both of them, and the entire world, forever. There promises to be no shortage of action, adventure, and wonder going down before the credits roll.

While Disney’s upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and really everything Star Wars related, is shrouded in secrecy, it’s not the only mysterious feature the House of Mouse has in the works. Well before we lay eyes on J.J. Abrams’ adventures in that galaxy far, far away, director Brad Bird will take us to Tomorrowland. A new TV spot premiered during the Super Bowl yesterday, and while it doesn’t offer much in the way of concrete detail, it certainly does capture your imagination.

Enigmatic, but engaging, everything we’ve seen thus far from Tomorrowland promises big ideas, sweeping adventure, and George Clooney’s smooth, soothing voice. This includes our latest look at the Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol director’s singular vision. The more we see from the film, the more questions there seem to be.

Tomorrowland Captures A Sense Of Wonder In This Super Bowl Preview

fb share tweet share

One of the 2015 movies that we’re super excited for, yet know almost nothing tangible about, is Disney’s Tomorrowland. We know that the film played a big factor in director Brad Bird not helming Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which seems like a pretty big deal, and though we’ve just seen the teasiest of teaser trailers, it looks mysterious and full of adventure. We’ll get another good look at the film during the Super Bowl on Sunday, and because this is the world we live in, we’ve got a quick look at this upcoming quick look.

In recent days, the Super Bowl has become the de facto marketing kick off for the upcoming slate of summer blockbusters (and as we all know, according to the studios, summer now runs from March or April to the first week of August). We know that we’re going to get fresh new looks at Jurassic World, Furious 7, Ted 2, Insurgent, and likely many more, including Tomorrowland.
