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

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.

Woody Harrelson

Spinoffs have always been a part of expanding the Star Wars universe since Disney acquired Lucasfilm a few years back. With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story being a huge success with critics and audiences, attention now turns to the next standalone film.

Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the untitled Han Solo standalone film stars Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!) as the title character, with Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke as an unknown character. Of course, the casting doesn’t stop there, and a new report says that Disney and Lucasfilm want a big actor for the film. One of those actors they have their eyes on is Woody Harrelson. More on the story below.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will pave the way for future Star Wars spinoffs. These films will focus on the untold stories that are considered legend within the universe. While there is excitement to see more Star Wars, there is also a little bit of anxiety as it is unclear what the future may hold for these spinoffs and what will happen beyond Episode IX.

From what we know so far, Gareth EdwardsRogue One will center on a group of rebels’ daring mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, while Christopher Miller and Phil Lord will direct a young Han Solo spinoff. As for the saga films, Rian Johnson is currently hard at work with the yet-to-be-titled Episode VIII, while Colin Trevorrow will be gearing up for Episode IX. After that, well, your guess is as good as ours.

In the weeks leading up to the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, we will probably hear a lot more about the other spinoffs that take place within the same universe. While Disney and Lucasfilm had planned on alternating between the saga films and spinoffs every year, the only other spinoff what we know about is that of the untitled Han Solo film that is set to begin production early next year.

The film will focus on a younger Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover) in the years before we first met them in the original Star Wars trilogy. While there isn’t a definitive plot synopsis, producer Kathleen Kennedy dropped a few hints that tell us more about the film’s tone. According to her, the spinoff will have a heist or western type feel to it. More on the story below.

George Lucas Isn’t Involved With ‘Indiana Jones 5’ Script, Per Screenwriter
eelyajekiM   |  

Indiana Jones

Earlier this year, Disney confirmed they would be releasing Indiana Jones 5 in 2019. The film will be directed by Steven Spielberg, with Harrison Ford reprising the title role he’s been playing since 1981. Given how well the actor’s return to playing Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens was received, it only made sense that we get to see Ford play Dr. Jones once more.

But like the Star Wars films, some are worried that George Lucas will have some influence on the creative direction of the franchise. However, we might not have to worry about that any longer. According to David Koepp, Lucas might not be as involved as we originally thought. Check out what screenwriter Koepp had to say here below.

Darth Vader Confirmed For ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’; Plus More Character Bits
eelyajekiM   |  

Darth Vader, Star Wars Rebels

The rumor that Darth Vader would be appearing in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story seemed to have gone under the radar with the reports of 40% of the film being reshot circling it. At the time it was a rumor that made plenty of sense considering how the standalone film centers on a group of rebels who go on a dangerous mission to steal the plans to the Death Star. So far we’ve only seen one teaser trailer that just set the tone, but no Darth Vader in sight. While we can expect to see more footage during Star Wars Celebration, it’s not clear if the Sith Lord will appear in it. But for those who are just anxiously waiting for an answer, you can take a huge sigh of relief.

It’s been confirmed that Darth Vader will be in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and there may be more to his character than what has been rumored. Hit the jump for the full story.

There was a growing concern that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was going to be in major trouble, when news broke that the film was entering reshoots and that 40% of the film would be reshot. The rumor was that Disney execs weren’t too pleased with the first cut of the film. According to those reports, there were issues with its tone and some said it looked more like a war movie than a Star Wars one – despite the film repeatedly being pitched as a ground-war film by director Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.

Now there is some truth to those rumors. Word is that the film is bringing in screenwriter Tony Gilroy to help polish the script and they are also hiring a new stunt coordinator.

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.
