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.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy On Where ‘Star Wars’ Goes From Here

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.

Mark Hamill Surprises Star Wars Fans

Last month we saw the announcement of another Force for Change collaboration between Star Wars and Omaze in which fans would have the chance to win the ultimate Star Wars experience while also supporting a great cause.

Now, just in time for May the 4th, a bonus prize for that contest has been revealed: the chance to have lunch with Mark Hamill in LA and see The Last Jedi before it opens to the public in a special pre-screening.

To help promote the contest and announce the bonus prize, Hamill recently shocked a handful of unsuspecting superfans when he showed up as their surprise co-star while re-creating iconic scenes from the movies. You can see their reactions in the video below, followed by all the details.

Video: Tommy Wiseau Meets Mark Hamill In ‘The Room’ / ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Mashup
The Movie God   |  

The Room's Tommy Wiseau Meets Mark Hamill In The Force Awakens

We’re nearing a year and a half now since Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released. The first spinoff movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has since come and gone, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi is on the way later this year.

But that doesn’t mean the internet is going to stop coming up with little gems to entertain us. A meme has made its way around the ‘net in which the man, the myth, the legend himself, Tommy Wiseau, drops his “Oh, hai Mark” line from his infamous anti-classic The Room on Mark Hamill in The Force Awakens.

Now someone has taken that meme a step further, by taking the clip of Wiseau out of The Room and superimposing him into the final scene of The Force Awakens. The result is, of course, perfect. You can check out the video below.

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 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.
