D23 Expo: Lucasfilm Offers No New Details On ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

D23 Expo 2013: Star Wars: Episode VII banner

Attendees at today’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, were shocked and disappointed to discover that Disney and Lucasfilm had no new details to share regarding their highly anticipated Star Wars sequel, Star Wars: Episode VII (hence, I’m sorry to have to pass this disappointment on to you, dear readers).

The lengthy live-action presentation today at the main hall of the Expo, which included panels for other properties like Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Disney’s Maleficent, began this morning with the Lucasfilm panel. Immediately, it was announced that there were no additional details to be revealed on the forthcoming seventh episode of the franchise, apparently getting that bummer out of the way early. (I suspect Lucasfilm would have concluded the day’s presentation had breaking news been planned.)

John Williams at the 41st Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles

Legendary composer John Williams, who is responsible for the memorable music of the Star Wars film saga, will return to score Star Wars: Episode VII, according to Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, who announced the news today at Star Wars Celebration in Germany.

Right after the announcement, the official Star Wars site posted a video interview with Williams on returning to the fold to work on the highly anticipate new Star Wars feature film, where he says he feels like he’s “never really left the galaxy far, far away.” While he hasn’t seen the script yet nor does he know what the story will be, Williams assumes that there will be themes from the previous movies he can draw upon.

Watch the video interview here below.

“A compass I learnt when I was surveying, it’ll… it’ll point you true north from where your standing, but it’s got no advice about the swamps, deserts and chasms that you’ll encounter along the way. If in pursuit of your destination, you plunge ahead heedless of obstacles, and achieve nothing more than to sink in a swamp, what’s the use of knowing true north?”

We’re all familiar with Abraham Lincoln. We know he freed the slaves. We know his distinctive look. He’s even on our money. But how much do we really know? I for one can admit that I did not know much more than the basics, about the same as the average person would know (I fell asleep in history class a lot, what can I say), but as I’ve gotten older my interest in history has grown exponentially, and lessons via documentary or biopic and so on can be just as appealing as the latest popcorn flick.

With movies, however, we’re always wondering in the back of our brain just how historically accurate the story we’re being told really is. And this will happen no less while viewing Lincoln, the latest film from director Steven Spielberg which tells the story of our 16th president and his fight to pass the 13th Amendment, the amendment that aimed to put an end to slavery.

While it’s very early in the process still, Abrams did say that he believed that the man you’d most expect to be scoring the movie, John Williams, would be the man that does score the movie.

Jurassic Park 3D Header

Jurassic Park is heading back into theaters early next year for a 3D re-release, because regular re-releases are just jurassic. Yeah, the film came out in 1993 and I didn’t get a chance to see it on the big screen, so watching it in 3D might not be so bad. Universal even has released a new trailer for the 3D re-release. Check it here out below.

That’s right Sam Neill, Richard Attenborough, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, Joseph Mazzello, Ariana Richards, Wayne Knight, and Samuel L. Jackson are all returning to the big screen and in 3D. This means you get to relive the fear of dinosaurs chowing down on some of your favorite characters and some of the magical awe of seeing characters watch dinosaurs come to life. In fact, it’s limited run may be the only time you will get to see these dinosaurs on the big screen.

Universal Day Of The Jedi: Views Of The Force

Universal Day of the Jedi

May the Force be with you all! Geeks of Doom will be posting a couple of Star Wars articles today, May 25, for Universal Day of the Jedi, which celebrates the anniversary of the release of the first Star Wars movie.

Throughout the history of the Star Wars film saga, we’re taught that there are only two perceptions, or sides, of the Force: the side embraced by the Jedi, and the Dark Side as flaunted by Sith Lords. While the “good vs. evil” motif works well in the films, the Expanded Star Wars Universe explores the Force in depth, where fans have learned there is more than meets the eye than just the light side and the dark side.

Indeed, while George Lucas was painting in very broad strokes of black and white when it came to the Force, which added much to its vague and enigmatic nature in the Original Trilogy, subsequent authors and writers have since looked deeper into the shades of gray. As the Jedi continue forward to embrace the light side, and the Dark Jedi and Sith Lords continue their growth in the dark side, we find more characters and cultures that have very differing philosophies of the Force.

Let’s take a look at these different points of view…

Jurassic Park

There’s no denying that the score for Jurassic Park from composer John Williams is absolutely amazing, especially the highly memorable piece, Theme from Jurassic Park.

Now, Sound Cloud user Birdfeeder has taken the classic track and slowed it down by 1,000 percent, and you can listen to it right here below.

It’s well worth a listen, as it sounds wonderful, but note, the five-plus minute orchestral song is now over 42 minutes long.
