Details for Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One Suggests More Villains

With the San Diego Comic Con beginning proceedings yesterday, you can expect a slew of information to flood the web in the next couple of days.  Perhaps the biggest talking point, however, will be the news that gets confirmed regarding the upcoming Star Wars films.  Next year fans are going to get a stand alone Star Wars feature called Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One.  The film takes place before the events of A New Hope, follows a crew of rebels on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.  Not much beyond that was known at this point but more info was revealed at Comic Con.  According to Bloody Disgusting: Continue reading Details for Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One Suggests More Villains

Who Should Play Han Solo?

Yesterday Lucasfilm officially announced that Chris Miller and Phil Lord will be directing Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo (read about it here), bringing everyone’s favorite smuggler back to the big screen.  The only question now is who will be playing him?  Harrison Ford made the role iconic so it will be huge shoes to fill for whatever actor Disney/Lucasfilm eventually picks for the stand alone prequel movie.  The natural choice that you’ll see most people suggest is Chris Pratt.  He’s the flavor of the month with massive hits like Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World under his belt so Disney would have a bankable entity, plus he has the charisma to do the role justice.  Is there anyone else you can picture taking over the role of Han Solo?  Offer your pick below.

Han Solo Movie Being Made By Directors of LEGO Movie

Courtesy of Coming Soon, Lucasfilm has officially announced that one of their stand alone Star Wars Anthology films will center on everyone’s favorite smuggler, Han Solo.  Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the creative writer/director team behind hits such as LEGO Movie and 21 & 22 Jump Street, have signed on to direct the movie based on a young Han Solo before he crossed paths with Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi in that cantina at Mos Eisley.

Will Indiana Jones be Back in 2018?

Here’s some news that’s gotten me particularly psyched.  Indiana Jones has always been my favorite movie character and Raiders of the Lost Ark is my favorite movie, so any news of the franchise continuing has me excited.  Aint It Cool News is reporting that Lucasfilm has penciled in a Q4 2018 release date for a new Indiana Jones film.  According to the report, a source of Harry Knowles provided him with the news of internal plans being discussed at Lucasfilm to set a target release date.  Naturally you should take this news with a grain of salt because there has been no confirmation or denial yet by Lucasfilm.  Also “discussions” don’t mean anything concrete has been set so even if the report is true it doesn’t mean that we’ll be getting more Indy in 2018.  That said, it is still fun to talk about.

Star Wars: Rogue One Official Plot Details

The other day I posted a few items that were confirmed at the Star Wars Celebration including character descriptions and a new trailer for The Force Awakens.  Yesterday the focus shifted to the other Star Wars film in the works called Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One.  The first thing that we learned from the panel yesterday is that the stand alone films are going to be know as anthologies.  Josh Trank was not present at the panel, supposedly he was sick and could not attend, so we didn’t learn anything about the “anthology” that he is going to direct.  There is still no plot details, cast announced or even a title for that film.  Luckily a lot was spilled about Rouge One.
