Star Wars: Episode VII: Get Your First Look At A Chrome Trooper

I’m just going to throw this up here right off the bat to get it out of the way, but there are some potential SPOILERS beyond this point in regards to the upcoming science fiction film Star Wars: Episode VII. Then again, this might all turn out to be nonsense, in which case nothing will be spoiled at all. But if you don’t want to take that chance, I suggest you stop reading.

Star Wars: Episode VII: Oscar Isaac Talks Original Cast, Practical Effects, And Fire

Oscar IsaacFans aren’t the only people excited about the impending expansion of the Star Wars universe, especially when it comes to J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII (as much as we want to see Star Wars Rebels, we have to assume that leaked photos from that set would be significantly less interesting and probably not contain images of a partially constructed Millennium Falcon). Many of the new additions to the cast are also huge fans, some who have never lived in a world without that galaxy far, far away, and they’re also pretty pumped up. And while they’re talking in regards to characters and plot details, they’re not shy about sharing their on set experiences. One of these is Oscar Isaac.

Isaac recently sat down with Entertainment Weekly, and while the main topic of conversation was his more immediate work, specifically his upcoming adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Two Faces of January, the topic of Episode VII did come up. You have to assume that’s going to happen in every conversation he has from now until the day he dies. People want to know about this shit, and will even after it has faded into the past.

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

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 Shows Off The Millennium Falcon In New Vid (Plus A Surprise Twist)

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

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.
