Star Wars The Last Jedi image 01

For the past few D23 Expos, Lucasfilm has had at least one Star Wars thing to show attendees. So following the success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars: Story, everyone was eagerly awaiting to see some brand new footage from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The Rian Johnson film has been on everyone’s minds since the first trailer popped up at Star Wars Celebration earlier this year. Many are wondering what the title means and if Luke really wants the Jedi Order to end. At the D23 today, the Lucasfilm portion of the live-action panel provided some answers. Check them out below.

Adam Driver and The Strange Hugs He Got On ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’
eelyajekiM   |  

Adam Driver as Kylo Ren

Of course with a title like that, one might misinterpret the meaning of it. But the reality of it all is, Adam Driver‘s approach to Kylo Ren is so deep that his fellow Star Wars: The Last Jedi castmates are literally hugging the Dark Side out of him. Perhaps, he’s even taking things a bit too personally with this role. But whatever he’s doing, it sure is surprising everyone on set. Which might have some great results in the end. It sure worked out in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Now the actor is revealing his take on the character and the effort he puts into playing Kylo Ren. Find out more on this story below.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Vanity Fair header

Because of the way Lucasfilm and Disney have planned out Star Wars films, we are going to be getting a new one every year for the foreseeable future. On the odd years, we’ll be getting saga films, and on the even years, there will be the Star Wars Story movies. And the person guiding it all is Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, who has been running the production company since it was acquired by Disney back in 2012. Basically, she’s the person to go to if you want to know anything regarding the new films – of course, that all depends on if you can get an answer out of her.

As a part of their coverage on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Vanity Fair talked to Kennedy about the late Carrie Fisher’s passing, the future of the franchise, and if they will continue the saga beyond Episode IX. More on all of that below.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Filmmakers Talk Title’s Meaning
eelyajekiM   |  

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

In the past week, we’ve seen a handful of new images of the cast in costume and learned a lot about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. From new characters and locations to motivations and drives, the film is setting itself up to be one of the most exciting of 2017. But as much as we learned about the film this week, there’s more information coming out.

One of the things everyone is dying to know is the meaning of the title. As Luke Skywalker so ominously put it towards the end of the first trailer, “It’s time to bring the Jedi to an end.” Is he referring to himself, to Rey, or the entire Order? It’s not likely we’ll get answers, but director Rian Johnson and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy can provide vague answers. More on the story below.

Daisy Ridley as Rey for Star Wars: The Last Jedi Vanity Fair Shoot

Director Rian Johnson is currently putting the finishing touches on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And while we still have months before the film hits theaters, we’ve only seen one trailer and a few screen grabs.

However, yesterday’s Vanity Fair covers gave us hope that we would learn more about the film, its new characters, and where the franchise goes from here since Carrie Fisher‘s passing. Now not only did the publication deliver on releasing images taken by the great Annie Leibovitz, but new plot details have been revealed that reveal Rey (Daisy Ridley) will be pushed to her limits, Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) will go on a secret mission, and how the new characters played by Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro will play a role in the highly anticipated sequel. Check it out below.

Four new Vanity Fair covers have just been released. While we still know next to nothing about the plot of the film, these covers may give us an idea of what to expect. Check it out below.

Blu-ray Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D Collector’s Edition
Empress Eve   |  

Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D Collector’s Edition title

Star Wars: The Force Awakens
3D Collector’s Edition Blu-ray
Writer: Lawrence Kasdan & J.J. Abrams and Michael Arndt
Director: J.J. Abrams
Cast: Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Max von Sydow, Gwendoline Christie
Studio: Walt Disney Pictures
Release Date: November 15, 2016

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was one of my favorite movies of 2015, and is a film I’ve written a lot about here — bottom line, I love it! Does it have its flaws? Sure, but nothing that I feel hampers the enjoyment of watching it. While there are those who feel it’s a retread of the original trilogy, I believe that it’s a worthy addition to the Star Wars universe.

The film was released in Blu-ray back in April and included a host of bonus features that delved into the making of the sequel. But, sadly, it didn’t include feature-length audio commentary, which is an extra I love on home video releases, especially for an extravaganza like this. Now, Disney has released The Force Awakens as a 3D Blu-ray Collector’s Edition that does include commentary from J.J. Abrams, which to me makes this set worth getting. It also includes the original bonus features, along with several all-new featurettes. So, if you don’t already own this, definitely grab this collector’s edition.

Blu-ray Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars The Force Awakens Poster wide version

Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Blu-ray Combo Pack
Director: J.J. Abrams
Cast: Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Max von Sydow, Gwendoline Christie
Studio: Walt Disney Pictures
Release Date: April 5, 2016

Star Wars: The Force Awakens began as my most anticipated movie of 2015 and ended being my favorite film of the year. While seeing director J.J. Abrams’ newest installment in the Star Wars franchise in IMAX was a delight, viewing the film in Blu-ray at home multiple times was just as entertaining. Matter of fact, since the Blu-ray Combo Pack comes with a Digital HD copy, I also enjoyed viewing it on my iPhone.

Written by Lawrence Kasdan, J.J. Abrams, and Michael Arndt, the new film takes place 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, the final film in George Lucas’ original trilogy that saw the Rebel Alliance finally overthrow the Empire. Han Solo (Harrison Ford) is still flying around hustling his way through the galaxy with his trusty co-pilot and friend Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), while his love Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) leads a small resistance group against The First Order, an offshoot of the Empire backed by a Darth Vader-obsessed Sith named Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

Universal Congratulates ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ On Breaking ‘Jurassic World’ Record (Image)
The Movie God   |  

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Han Solo and Chewie

Over the weekend Star Wars: The Force Awakens broke a couple of records, and you might have already heard, including Jurassic World‘s all-time biggest domestic opening weekend record.

Because Disney-owned Marvel was cool enough to congratulate Universal Pictures on breaking the record earlier this year, topping previous record-holder Marvel’s The Avengers, it seemed only fair that Universal return the favor. And that’s exactly what they’ve done. Just as Marvel tweeted out a congratulatory image of Chris Pratt riding a Tyrannosaurus rex holding Thor’s hammer Mjolnir in front of the Avengers team, Frank Marshall has tweeted out an image of the T-rex presenting droid BB-8 with a medal.

You can check out the congratulations image below.

Star Wars The Force Awakens header

Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Director: J.J. Abrams
Screenwriter: Lawrence Kasdan, J.J. Abrams, Michael Arndt
Cast: Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Max von Sydow, Gwendoline Christie
Lucasfilm | Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 136 Minutes
Release Date: December 18, 2015

It goes without saying that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the most anticipated films of the year. And as such, the expectations are very high for director J.J. Abrams to give us something that will remind us what Star Wars is really about. So it is easy to understand why he might be a little terrified about what fans might think of his vision for the franchise for the new generation. But it is safe to say that not only has he met those expectations, he also exceeded them.

I’ll start out by saying that I am not a hardcore fan of the franchise, but I understand its mythology and how people can live and breathe the world of Star Wars. Second, this will be a spoiler-free review, meaning I won’t reveal what hasn’t been already revealed in trailers and interviews. This is so that everyone can be just as surprised about the film as I was when I first watched it with my fellow journalists. Check out my review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens here below.
