The galaxy is in turmoil. A Rebel Alliance is rising up against the villainous Galactic Empire but they are still marginalised and easily defeated. The Empire has a secret weapon, something that will ensure their continued hold on the galaxy: The Death Star. The giant space station has the ability to destroy an entire planet, although the Rebel Alliance have successfully stolen the secret plans for it. When Princess Leia Organa of Alderan (Carry Fisher) is captured on her way to deliver the plans to the Alliance, she is forced to send them inside a droid to the closest planet - Tatooine. There, a young moisture farmer, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), who dreams of something greater for himself, is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, and save the galaxy along the way.

The Rebel Alliance has fallen into an incredibly dark time. With the destruction of their base in the Hoth system, they have suffered numerous setbacks and defeats across the galaxy. It has been a crushing time for the heroes of the Rebel Alliance as well, as Han Solo (Harrison Ford) has been captured by the ruthless Darth Vader and sent to the vicious crime boss Jabba the Hutt. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) has suffered greatly, too. Not only has he learned the truth about Vader being his father, but he has lost his hand in a battle with the dark lord of the Sith. Luke must first rescue Han, and then face up to his destiny and battle Vader for the fate of the galaxy.

For the fans that just can't wait until December, 'Star Wars' is set to a release a new HD collection for digital distribution.
'Star Wars' is a phenomenon. The oddball 1977 original movie (later deemed to be "Part 4") was the first true blockbuster, changing the way movies are merchandised and reigniting the steadily dying science fiction genre. It turned the space opera into a crowd-pleasing licence to print money, and we all love it for that. On the other hand, the best way to send any self-respecting geek into a fit of frothing rage is even allude to the prequel trilogy without discussing how you would have made it better yourself.
Harrison Ford in 'Star Wars: A New Hope'
The thing is, the original trilogy is still held in such high regard, that the series is still a viable investment; not only are we getting an entirely new trilogy beginning at the end of 2015, but a remastered collection of the entire saga so far is set to be released digitally online on 10th April, 2015. As if you needed something to get you in the mood.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. The majestic order of honourable, strong Jedi, do all they can to keep the peace in a galaxy slowly tearing itself apart through trade disputes and separatist uprisings. All the while, they are becoming aware of the steady growth of an ancient group of darker, hate filler Jedi known as The Sith, are returning. In amongst their troubles, a young boy is discovered; a boy who could be more powerful than any Jedi that has ever lived. If a legendary prophecy can be believed, he is the one who will destroy the Sith and bring balance back to the Force - the energy which binds all life together.

According to onlookers, Ford followed his training to the letter and "saved several lives" in the process.
He’s been the hero of countless action films, but it seems that Harrison Ford was a real-life hero for his quick-thinking actions during the incident which led to his plane crash in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Harrison Ford's actions in landing his stricken plane "saved several lives"
Harrison Ford is a little beat up, but there is no threat to his life.
Harrison Ford is alive and well, but definitely shaken up after being in a plane crash this week. Being Harrison Ford though, even the circumstances of his crash were pretty unbelievable. The Indiana Jones star was piloting a small 1940s aircraft (no joke), when he had quite a severe mishap.According to People, it was a two-seat, single-engine 1942 military trainer, which he was piloting over Penmar Golf Course near Santa Monica Airport.
Harrison Ford just got a little more badass.
"Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which had engine trouble upon takeoff," Ina Treciokas said. "He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care. The injuries sustained are not life threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery."

"This is about the new generation of characters; I think that's the most important thing," Hamill told Yahoo! Movies . ”It's the opening act of a whole new approach to the storytelling.”
Ridley Scott isn't completely ruling himself out of directing 'Blade Runner 2.'
Thousands of Blade Runner fans let out a collective depressing sigh last week after it was reported Ridley Scott would not be directing the hugely anticipated sequel to the 1982 classic. Sure, Scott was due to act as a producer, and shooting was set to go ahead in 2015, but still, it was a blow.
Ridley Scott says he could direct Blade Runner 2
WELL GUESS WHAT. During press for his forthcoming Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, Scott told Yahoo! UK that in theory he could still direct the movie.

JJ Abrams wont be making the same mistake as George Lucas’s prequels.
Anthony Daniels, the actor who has appeared as C-3PO in all six Star Wars films, has confirmed that no CGI will be used for his character in Jj Abrams upcoming Episode VII. The actor, who is the only member of the Star Wars cast to appear in all six films, was replaced by CGI animation for C-3PO’s action seances in the prequel trilogy.
Anthony Daniels has always been the man behind C-3PO
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Daniels said, “There’s no way I would just do the voice. I will tell you that when JJ Abrams rang me to ask about filming Episode VII, one of the first things he said after he told me how wonderful I was — and that didn’t take long — but he then said, ‘Would you be interested in being in the film just doing the voice?’ I said, ‘No.’ And he said, ‘Right!’ He knew I’d say that.”

Looks like 'Blade Runner 2' could be close than we first assumed.
Ridley Scott has revealed that the script for Blade Runner 2 is finished and that Harrison Ford is ready to reprise his role as Deckard. Scott's iconic 1982 movie - about a man hired to hunt down rogue artificial humans - is a classic of the sci-fi genre and fans have been itching for a follow-up for decades.
Ridley Scott has confirmed that a Blade Runner 2 script is now complete
Now, according to Entertainment Weekly, that wish looks closer than ever, with Scott confirming" It's written and it's damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years-despite the accident. So yes, that will happen."
Continue reading: Ridley Scott Will Make 'Blade Runner 2' After 'The Martian'
Striking a tone somewhere between the po-faced original and the silly Part 2, this rampaging action nonsense is badly overcrowded and chaotic, but there's plenty of comedy and whizzy stuntwork to keep the audience entertained. It of course helps a lot that the film is packed to the rafters with iconic actors and lively newcomers. And their sassy dialogue helps make up for the idiotic plot.
It opens with a prison break, as Barney (Sylvester Stallone) and his team (Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Terry Crews) rescue their old cohort Doc (Wesley Snipes) then head off on a mysterious mission that turns out to involve their presumed-dead nemesis Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), who is targeting Barney's team. So Barney and his pal Bonaparte (Kelsey Grammer) set about finding four new commandoes (Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Glen Powell and Victor Ortiz) to take on Stonebanks, but of course nothing goes as plan. For the final face-off they're joined by the old team, CIA boss Drummer (Harrison Ford), former colleagues Trench and Yin (Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jet Li), and chatty newcomer Galgo (Antonio Banderas).
The ever-increasing cast means that some characters can't help but be pushed into the shadows (Crews and Li are barely in this film), while others hover around the edges of scenes injecting moments of sarcastic wit. Each of the characters gets his or her moment of eye-popping action, as the film lurches from set-piece to set-piece in a whirl of bombs, bullets and blades. All of this is fun because the actors are gleefully refusing to take any of this seriously. The scene-stealers this time are Gibson, terrific as the swaggering villain, and Banderas, who's hilarious as the only person who can string a sentence together.

With new Star Wars Episode VII plot details flying around the rumor mill, fanfare surrounding the film is starting to build
J.J. Abrams has been incrementally dripping visual information regarding the upcoming reboot, Star Wars: Episode VII; we’ve had a glimpse at a bustling Tattooine marketplace and a chess table from the Millennium Falcon.

The new Star Wars looks cool... but the trailer is just fan-made.
As Disney moves forward on Star Wars: Episode VII production, fans just can’t wait to see some new content. In the run-up to the movie, some people have been duped by a fan-made “trailer” which popped up on Youtube. The video, which has been viewed more than a million times, features a range of vehicles used in previous movies interwoven with airport buses at Frankfurt Airport.
Harrison Ford is down, but not out, as filming pauses for two weeks.
"Seems like the biggest German airport plays a key role as an imperial starport in the new episode," reads a blurb attached to the video.
Production might be halted, but in the mean time, Star Wars Episode VII has just added two new cast members.
Newcomers Pip Anderson and Crystal Clarke have become the latest additions to the Star Wars Episode VII cast, after beating out 67,000 other hopefuls. Overnight the actors have gone from being complete unknowns to the hottest new names in Hollywood. But what can we find out about Pip Andersen and Crystal Clarke?
Star Wars Episode VII is currently being filmed
Last year 67,000 hopefuls from 11 cities and across the internet responded to an open casting call for a part in Jj Abrams’ sequel. While some thought it was just a publicity stunt, the idea of casting unknowns is nothing new to the franchise. It’s actually something Star Wars prides itself on, remember back in 1977 Mark Hamil was an unknown name.
Ford's leg injury will take its toll on the 'Star Wars' scheduling.
Harrison Ford's broken leg could set back the production of Star Wars: Episode VII by up to two weeks, according to a new announcement made by Disney. The actor, who'll be reprising his role as Han Solo in the film, sustained the injury last month whilst filming for Jj Abrams' new sci-fi instalment.
The veteran movie star faces up to six weeks of rehabilitation to get him - quite literally - back on his feet after a piece of the movie set crushed his leg on the 12th June at England's Pinewood Studios.
Shooting has continued in Ford's absence with Star Wars bosses working around the missing character. Now shooting has had to be halted for two weeks by the studios although Episode VII is still "on track" to wrap in the fall and be released in December 2015, according to the AP.

Kevin Smith's big day out
Star Wars Episode VII has done a pretty good job of churning out fairly newsworthy stuff since it was announced following Disney’s acquisition of LucasFilm and everything related to a galaxy far, far away.
Yes, ‘this person is starring as this thing,’ or ‘this old guy broke his leg doing this, or even ‘this man is in charge of another thing do to with this thing’ – they all happened and they were just about newsworthy. But with nothing that important taking place, it looks like we’ll have to talk about Kevin Smith, who took a photo of his own face while being around all the Star Wars things going on.

"Cool Britannia" all over again?
Tonight, one of Whitehall’s most ornate and decorative buildings, the Foreign Office, will play host to a reception. The guest list: A-listers from the world film. The cause: celebrating the achievements of Britain's creative industries.
Benedict Cumberbatch is among some stellar stars attending The Foreign Office tonight
The bash has already been compared to Tony Blair’s ‘Cool Britannia’, something Number 10 is keen to dissociate tonight’s bash from. Although with David Cameron likely set to offer up some form of toast, the similarities are there for all to see. Blair’s 1997 saw many cultural icons attend, like Oasis’s Noel Gallagher – only the stars turned on the government and were openly critical of its practises.
Is Tom Cruise about to add a ‘Star Wars’ cameo to his CV?

Of course it’s all just another Star Wars rumour at the moment (and we’ve had plenty of those in the last few months), but just because it’s Tom, let’s indulge this one and go over everything we know about the possibility of Cruise in Episode VII.

The director tweeted a photo of what appears to be the hologram chess board that appeared in the original Star Wars trilogy bearing a note that read "I wish people would stop leaking photos from Episode VII. And making ridiculous claims that the Millennium Falcon is in the movie. - JJ."
Basically, Abrams is making fun of all the people speculating over whether the Falcon will be featured in the movie by saying 'yes fools, of course one of the most famous spaceships of all time is going to be in my movie.'
It looks like JJ Abrams and his team are building a full-size Millennium Falcon for the new movie.
We have been given our first look at the brand new Millennium Falcon that is being built for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, thanks to an alleged photo leak TMZ has published. The new shots, which are purported to feature full-size space vehicles from the sci-fi franchise, have strongly hinted that Han Solo's iconic spaceship and others will be included in Jj Abrams upcoming reboot.
If the photos are real, they are evidence that Abrams' team has decided to create full-size versions of the vehicles that George Lucas' movies only made in miniature model sizes. It will also indicate that Episode VII will use minimal CGI effects in favour of high spec props and spacecraft models. Eagle-eyed observers also spotted what looks like an X-Wing starfighter amongst the other unknown constructions.
The photos were evidently taken in some kind of cavernous hangar which fans are speculating could be England's Pinewood Studios, where much of the movie's filming will take place. Vast sets are shown being built out of wood and covered with ladders and scaffolding as Abrams' vision slowly takes form.

The rumours were right all along.
Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie have finally been added to the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. It has been rumoured for some time that 12 Years a Slave star Lupita had been picked for the sci-fi reboot in her first live action role since winning her Oscar this year and now we have the confirmation.
In the latest wave of casting announcements since the big reveal at the end of April, Lupita is joined by Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie in Jj Abrams addition to George Lucas' much-loved franchise. "I can finally say it out loud and proud: I'm going to a galaxy far far away!" Nyong'o excitedly posted via Instagram.
'Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back' has been named the greatest film of all time in a recent Empire Magazine poll. Does it deserve the prestigious top spot?
It may come as a bit of a surprise to hear that Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back has been voted Empire Magazine's greatest movie of all time. The new poll, which included 250,000 film fans, saw the second Star Wars movie, or the fifth, depending on whether you take chronology or date into account, beat The Godfather, The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction. Traditionally, all three films tend to rank higher than The Empire Strikes Back, in movie polls taken by film fans.
Is The Empire Strikes Back truly the greatest movie of all time?
Empire Magazine’s list is compiled of 301 films, which also includes two other Star Wars movies, Return of the Jedi and Revenge of the Sith. This surely bodes well for the franchise, which is currently working on Star Wars Episode VII, which is due for release in 2015.
The 1980 sci-fi classic beat out ‘The Godfather’ and ‘The Dark Knight’ to come out on top in the poll conducted by Empire magazine.
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back has topped a poll conducted by Empire magazine to find 'the greatest movie of all time', as voted for by film fans. The second instalment of George Lucas’s mammoth sci-fi franchise knocked Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather into second place while The Dark Knight rounded off the top three.
Star Wars creator George Lucas
Speaking to the magazine, Star Wars creator George Lucas said it was a “privilege” to see the film come out on top. “It's soulful, but in a different way from Episode IV. It's a little bit more adult." he said. Adding that he’d “never really planned" Star Wars to be three separate films but when it became so, "it had an interesting effect of each film having its own personality, caused by the plot.”
