Disney In Depth: Recognizing The Next Disney Legends
Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Two years ago, in light of the D23 Expo 2015, I named six individuals paramount to the success of The Walt Disney Company who should be named Disney Legends, the highest honor that can be bestowed. I think it is inevitable that Joe Rodhe, for instance, renowned Imagineer with those awesome earrings, who I contended should become a Disney Legend, will one day attain that honor. This prompted me to reflect on individuals within The Walt Disney Company, whether they have more recently joined the corporation or have been directly or indirectly part of its framework, who have a high chance of being recognized as Disney Legends at some point.

I had planned on publishing a column about the next set of individuals who would likely be recognized as Disney Legends, but The Walt Disney Company beat me to the punch by recently issuing a press release of its nine forthcoming Disney Legends. You’ll have to take my word that I predicted Stan Lee, Garry Marshall, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill would be named as Disney Legends this year. That said, I am excited to share my thoughts on these four, as well as five others, who will obtain this major honor at the D23 Expo.

Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer 20

Based on very early reports, General Leia was supposed to have a significant role in the new Star Wars trilogy. But with Carrie Fisher‘s tragic passing last year, it was unclear what would happen to Leia. Originally, the plan was to use existing footage for Episode IX. However, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy says that isn’t happening. In fact, they have been forced to write the script from scratch. More on the story below.

Star Wars The Last Jedi image 09

So now that we’ve watched the first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi a few hundred times (or more) and got a tease of the panel from Star Wars Celebration today, it’s time for some good ol’ fashioned photos.

As we all know, The Last Jedi is the second installment of a brand new trilogy, but director Rian Johnson isn’t being as secretive about the plot as his predecessor J.J. Abrams when he directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, Johnson is being as vague as possible so not to spoil the entire thing, but he did reveal that The First Order will be making “Big Moves” that could strengthen their place within the Galactic Senate. Check out what he had to say below, plus a few new photos from the trailer that dropped this morning.

Watch: ‘Star Wars’ Celebration Tribute To The Late Carrie Fisher
eelyajekiM   |  

Star Wars: Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia

The passing of Carrie Fisher was a profound loss. Sure she was Princess Leia to all of us, but she was also a director, a screenwriter, and an inspiration to those who are going through personal struggles. So it makes it that much more harder to come to grips with as Star Wars Celebration is being held without her.

But to honor her memory, the convention released a very emotional tribute that compiles footage from on the set, interviews, and co-stars talking about what it was like to be with her. You can check out the video below.

In Memoriam 2016: Remembering Those We Lost In Entertainment

In Memoriam 2016

In Memoriam 2016: Film, Television, Music, Sports, Literature, the Arts…

With 2017 upon us, let’s take one final look back at the luminaries and personalities of the entertainment world who left us in 2016, during a year that seemed more turbulent and taxing than any other in recent memory.

Challenges in the past and challenges ahead, it’s a tough time to live in the world right now with so many changes like a whirling dervish to the senses. While there is much sadness in recognizing and accepting the passing of so many great figures in 2016, it’s the endearing, endless, never-ending fanbase and legacy that will keep each and every one of these names mentioned here (and some are of only cult status, but still enjoy a rabid passionate following as equal as any global figure) alive and well in the consciousness and beyond. In no particular order and apologies in advance if some of your favorites were left off. This was a huge list to go through and what was more painful than compiling this list was the fact that these incredibly talented people are all no longer with us.

‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ and ‘Episode IX’ Directors, Lucasfilm To Discuss Princess Leia’s Future
eelyajekiM   |  

Star Wars The Force Awakens Trailer 20

The tragic passing of Carrie Fisher hit everyone pretty hard last week. Not only was she a major figure of the Star Wars universe, she was also a writer and someone who was able to overcome the darkest parts of her life to become an inspiration. It’s insensitive to talk about what will happen to her Princess Leia character (she will always be royalty) now that she is gone, but here we are.

There is a new report that says she was to have a larger role in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VIII and Episode IX. Rian Johnson (director of Episode VIII) and Colin Trevorrow (director of Episode IX) are set to discuss how Leia will fit into the future of the franchise with Lucasfilm in the coming weeks. Check out the full report below.

A couple of days back we found out that HBO would be airing a documentary they had made about the lives and relationship of Star Wars star Carrie Fisher and her mother, Singin’ in the Rain star Debbie Reynolds, this weekend.

The film, titled Bright Lights, had already screened at multiple film festivals, including its premiere at Cannes, to high praise, but was not officially released before Fisher and Reynolds passed away within one day of each other last week. A clip from the doc had been previously released and can be seen right here, but HBO has now released more of a trailer which can be seen below.

The Movie God   |  

Carrie Fisher in Bright Lights

Before Carrie Fisher left us last week, followed by Debbie Reynolds the next day, the mother and daughter duo appeared in a documentary titled Bright Lights.

The documentary follows Fisher and Reynolds, who actually lived next door to each other, looking at their lives and relationship. It premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, and has also screened at other film festivals to critical praise. Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens directed the film. And yes, it’s that Fisher Stevens, star of the great Short Circuit (among many other things) and Academy Award winner for another documentary you might have heard of: The Cove.

You can find more information on Bright Lights below, along with a brief clip from the documentary.
