Jar Jar Binks' Fate Finally Revealed To 'Star Wars' Fans


Star Wars

The deeply annoying Jar Jar Binks has long stood as a cautionary tale in the movie industry, following his debut in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace nearly two decades ago.

His bizarre accent and general buffoonery was scaled back massively in next two instalments of the prequel trilogy, but what ended up happening to him was never revealed in the movies. Now, Star Wars fans have finally found out the answer regarding the eventual fate of the irritating Gungan, in a new official novel titled ‘Aftermath: Empire’s End’ – and it might come as a shock to some!

At this juncture, we should issue a spoiler alert – if you’re reading the book, there’s plot reveals ahead!

Felicity Jones Opens Up About Her Gruelling Fitness Regime For 'Rogue One'


Star Wars Felicity Jones

Having slayed the box offices on both sides of the Atlantic in the new Star Wars spin-off Rogue One, Felicity Jones opened up about the intense training regime she undertook in order to play the movie’s lead character, Jyn.

“After I got the call from Gareth [Jones, director] I was obviously ecstatic, but then I thought, ‘I’ve got to get to the gym REALLY quickly, I’ve got to get in shape for this film!’”

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opened in the U.K. on December 15th, and is intended a spin-off from the Star Wars canon, and Jones’ character leads a mission to steal the blueprints from the Empire’s new weapon the Death Star, meaning this is probably set immediately before the events of the first ever Star Wars film A New Hope.

We are less than two weeks away from the release of the stand-alone 'Star Wars' movie 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' and now Disney have unveiled some exciting clips exploring the intense stress that the Rebel Alliance are under, and introducing a key new character or two. 

K-2SOK-2SO doesn't trust Jyn

'Rogue One' follows the adventures of Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) as she joins the Rebel Alliance to help bring down the Galactic Empire's plans to launch an apocalyptic new superweapon known as the Death Star. Jyn teams up with Captain Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) for the mission, who appears to be highly suspicious of... well, everything. But especially of her, as is shown in one of the new clips where he panics at the sight of her weapon.

Star Wars Felicity Jones

Felicity Jones has opened up about the importance her character in 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' will have as a role model to young girls and women everywhere.

Following on from the pride of place that Daisy Ridley's character Rey had in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' offers yet another strong female role model with her own skills, her own path and - most importantly - her own mind. Felicity Jones, who plays Jyn Erso in the upcoming stand-alone adventure, doesn't take that sentiment for granted.

Just when you thought film awards season was over, the 2016 Jameson Empire Awards rolled in last night (March 20th 2016) to heap some much deserved praise on the epic of the year 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'; a film which didn't manage to land an Oscar and wasn't even recognised at the Golden Globes in spite of its enormous appeal.

The film won Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy, beating 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2', 'Jurassic World', 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and 'The Martian'. However, it was beaten to Best Film (presented by Sky Movies) over all by Leonardo DiCaprio's 'The Revenant'. It also lost out on Best Costume Design to 'Mad Max: Fury Road', which was another major winner at the awards show when it also landed Best Soundtrack.

Star Wars Jj Abrams

'Star Wars' fever has been rife all year, but nowhere was it more infectious than at the world premiere of 'The Force Awakens' yesterday (December 14th 2015). Packed with fans, celebrities as well as the stars of the movie, this was a film event of titanic proportions.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' made it's premiere in Los Angeles, though the night became so busy that it had to be spread from the Dolby Theater to the TCL Chinese and El Capitan as well. The director of the previous movies George Lucas showed, to the delight of new director and major fan J.J. Abrams. Lucas previously described having to attend the premiere as being like a divorced father at his grown child's wedding, but in this case it seems stepfather Abrams couldn't have been more right for the continuation of the 'Star Wars' project.

An interview with Daisy Ridley about Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

Not much has been given away about Daisy Ridley's character Rey but here she takes some time out to chat about her character. As well as being incredibly strong and heroic, there's also a simpler side to the character that really made the role quite nuanced. Daisy says that it wasn't what she expected and she thinks might just surprise fans too.

When talking about her responsibility to take on and become such a huge part of Star Wars she says that she hopes it'll please the old fans but equally hopes it'll appeal to a younger audience who might not have already become immersed in the series.

Fans will be aware that Rylo Ken wears a mask, having his facial expressions taken away from him was one just one of the trickier aspects of the role, to combat this Adam had to put a lot of trust in himself and kept a mind of 'the power of thought' being such an important part of playing such a character.

Elstree 1976 Trailer


When George Lucas and the production team began work on Star Wars: A New Hope in 1976, not one of them could ever picture the movie developing to the magnitude that it has. Though the movie was operating on a relatively small budget (11 million), there was a huge cast involved, many of them in full head to toe costume.

Elstree 1976 takes a look at a few of the actors that made up that very special cast. They are actors who have never really known recognition for their work on one of the biggest movies the world has ever known. Since then, even though their faces may never have been seen on screen - some have found Star Wars has helped supplement their living through doing conventions and meet and greets with loyal Star Wars fans.

Elstree 1976 was directed by Jon Spira and was initially funded by 966 backers on Kickstarter pledging a total of £42,191 (GBP). The docu-film features interviews with a number of the original actors including Jeremy Bulloch who played Boba Fett.

The female lead of the original Star Wars movies has given some sage advice to the star of the new ones, as Carrie Fisher interviewed newcomer Daisy Ridley. The Princess Leia actress, now 59, has warned 23 year old Ridley not to let herself be dressed in any gold bikinis for the movies!

In an exchange for Interview Magazine’s November edition, Fisher asked the newbie if she was prepared to be the object of the sexual fantasies of millions of Star Wars fans around the world when The Force Awakens opens in cinemas in December.

Harrison Ford Opens Up About Near-Fatal Plane Crash


Harrison Ford Jimmy Kimmel Star Wars Jj Abrams

Harrison Ford has spoken for the first time about his miraculous escape from a plane crash seven months ago, after a vintage light aeroplane he was piloting crash-landed on a golf course on the outskirts of Los Angeles.

It was only thanks to Ford’s impeccable skills and execution that he managed to walk away relatively unscathed, and what happened would have been fatal under almost any other circumstance, crash investigators revealed soon after the accident back in March.

The 73 year old appeared on a special Star Wars / Halloween edition of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ – dressed as a hot dog, natch – and spoke about his recollections of the incident, as well as the new movie.

It's been thirty years since the Rebel Alliance; led by the noble Luke Skywalker, the intrepid Princess Leia and the lionhearted Han Solo; finally defeated Emperor Palpatine of the Galactic Empire, alongside his redeemed assistant Darth Vader. The second Death Star was reduced to rubble, and the galaxy was free from a tyrannous evil once more. If only that were true. For there can never be good without evil, and sure enough another Dark Lord, Supreme Leader Snoke, has arisen to take the Emperor's place, with even more brutal plans for the civilians across the stars. But this time there are also new heroes, better equipped to deal with the ever looming terror thanks to an example set by the now ageing former Han, Luke and Leia. They are now preparing to help a vindicated former stormtrooper named Finn, an independent scavenger called Rey, and Poe Dameron who is a Resistance X-Wing pilot.
