Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer


The Galaxy is on the brink of a major war being won by dangerous rulers and only a few fighters stand between the Emperor and his unrelenting army which is constantly surging peaceful plants. The destruction and invasion of any planet who won't agree to the Empire's stringent regulations is all but destroyed.

Jyn Erso is one such rebel fighter who is willing to go to any lengths to fulfil her mission, often landing her in trouble with her seniors but her independent demeanour means that she might be a perfect candidate for an imperative mission - the failure of which could mean the end of the galaxy as its citizens know.

Jyn and a small team of fellow rebels must steal plans for the Emperor's newest and deadliest weapon, The Death Star.

'Conan' Explores Just How Funny The Han Solo Auditions Could Have Been


Star Wars Bill Hader Melissa McCarthy

The role of a young Han Solo has got to have been the most coveted part known to Hollywood, even taking James Bond into account, so it's difficult to imagine what the auditions might have been like. Luckily for us, we don't have to imagine because the latest 'Conan' sketch has done that for us.

Melissa McCarthyMelissa McCarthy auditions for Han Solo on 'Conan'

Ultimately, it was 26-year-old Alden Ehrenreich who landed the part of Han Solo, taking over from Harrison Ford for a new stand-alone 'Star Wars' film due to be screened in 2018. We know that the likes of Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort, Scott Eastwood, Taron Egerton and Jack Reynor all auditioned and subsequently lost out, but a new skit on TBS' 'Conan' shows us just how funny it could've been with it's own series of potential auditionees.

John Williams Star Wars

Celebrities and iconic popular figures have got to be used to elaborate fan moments occurring almost every day of their lives, but it's always heart-warming to see a little appreciation for it.

'Star Wars: Episode 8' Director Rian Johnson Says He Took Inspiration From British War Movies


Star Wars

The Star Wars series may be set in a galaxy far, far away, but the inspiration for the film’s new director Rian Johnson comes from something rather more earthbound and old-fashioned – the grit and guts of classic British war movies.

The 42 year old filmmaker, whose CV includes Looper and The Brothers Bloom, was speaking at the Star Wars Celebration conference in London and told the crowd during a Q&A session that the inspiration for Star Wars: Episode VIII came from classic war films like Bridge On the River Kwai and Twelve O’Clock High.

Star Wars Gareth Edwards

'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' continues the adventures of a vast world left behind by George Lucas. Directed by Gareth Edwards, it's set to hit theaters in December with an all new cast, but so far no-one is willing to give too much away.

Gareth EdwardsGareth Edwards talks 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'

The cast and crew of the new movie opened up a little about what to expect from the next 'Star Wars' adventure, as audiences are left wondering if it has any place in the forthcoming 'Han Solo' flick or the eagerly anticipated 'Star Wars: Episode VIII'. What we do know is that you've never seen any of these characters before, so franchise newcomers will be just as unfamiliar as veteran fans.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - Behind The Scenes Footage and Cast Interviews


We still have a rather long wait before the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story but the film makers have just created a fantastic sizzle reel which takes viewers behind the scenes to see exactly what's been going on whilst shooting one of the movies of 2016.

Some of the footage (seeing Stormtroopers walking through the ocean) makes for surreal viewing but it has most certainly whetted the appetites of the majority of Star Wars fans.

British director Gareth Edwards explains how Star Wars: A New Hope is one of his favourite films and even though the stories are slightly intertwined, it's a careful balancing act of trying to be respectful to the movie it's so closely related to whilst also trying to offer the viewers a truly original and exciting piece of film making.
