Harrison Ford, Lupita Nyong’o and Oscar Isaac at an actors’ roundtable in LA, December 2013 (months before either Lupita or Oscar was cast in Star Wars!)
→ Some rumor-based speculation on the Empire in Episode VII from Making Star Wars.
→ The always controversial Devin Faraci on how what he’s heard about Episode VII has made him stop worrying and love Star Wars again. He also had some fairly sound things to say on the EU issue yesterday on Twitter.
Carrie Fisher & Harrison Ford + being insanely adorable and incredibly casual about ruining my life.
Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill - Behind the Scenes
StarWars.com interrupts this holiday weekend to bring us… “Thomas” and “Rachel.” For real, this time: Pip Andersen and Crystal Clarke have won the coveted open call parts.
The update also contains some brief production information, including a two-week hiatus coming in August. Meanwhile, Harrison Ford is “doing well and is looking forward to returning to the set soon” as shooting – and the release date – remain “on track.”
This morning in Episode VII: Kevin Smith says Abrams “has nailed it”
He may have signed an NDA, but Kevin Smith has let loose some details about his Episode VII set visit, most notably that the film will involve stormtroopers. (Which has been bandied about so much that it’s not really a surprise at this point.) Also, this:
“I’m really excited and you know, people keep saying that I liked the last trilogy and I did. I liked 1, 2 and 3. But I liked them as an adult, when I watched them they didn’t give me the same feeling I had when I was seven watching them for the first time and that’s fine. This movie though… Dude, I cried four times. The seven year old in me came. [J.J] has f*cking captured it, man. He has nailed it.”
Anklewatch! People is all over Harrison Ford’s crutch situation. “I wish everybody was so easy. He gets it. He’s mechanically inclined,” Brad Hunter, the director of business development for the iWalk crutch told them. “It’s a very active way to do recovery.”
Mystery! Why are there “Star Wars 7″ signs in Atlanta? Is someone pulling a prank?
Rumors! Making Star Wars has a couple things that I’m about 99.9% sure are complete and utter bullshit from the same well as that Reclamation treatment from last year. Not buying the Boyega thing, either.
