Bad Robot Tweeted the first photo from Star Wars VII’s workshop and we got to see the first actor who will be returning to the film franchise. It isn’t Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford or Carrie Fisher, but it is R2D2. I have to say I am OK with that as long as C-3P0 joins him because they come as a pair.
Samuel L Jackson was on The Late Show tonight and David Letterman asked him if he is going to be in the new Star Wars movie? So he told the CBS late night host that recently he was filming a movie with Mark Hamill aka Luke Skywalker and Jackson asked if he heard from J.J. Abrams and the force is not with him. So Mace Windu called Ewan McGregor aka Obi-Wan Kenobi, and he too has not felt the force for the director. So Jackson suggested that they find out where they are filming the 7th movie in the franchise and camp out until they are offered a role.
If that doesn’t work, then he is going to audition for a role in the movie. You know, the ones that recently posted.
Considering that there are four movies since the one he appeared in, I am not so sure that Mace Windu would be alive to be in it. But then again, you never know. I mean I would love to hear him say, “I am sick of these mother f*cking Ewocks, on this mother f*cking spaceship.” What about you?
One last thought, personally I think that a lot of these people know whether or not they are going to be in the movie. They just can’t say anything about it just yet.
Hey all of you Star Wars fans, mark your calendars for December 18, 2015 because that is when Star Wars Episode VII is coming out. How excited are you to see the seventh film in the franchise and the first produced by Disney?
When I asked my friend, who camped out for the last three, when he was going to camp out for this one; he told me he wasn’t going to do it this time around because they have to win his trust back. I am sure he is not alone.
When it comes to me, let’s just say I am the only person who liked Jar Jar Binks. Translation, I see the movies once and I am done. So I have no urgency to see the movie in theaters and I’ll probably will until it is on out DVD like the last 3.
Conan O’Brien is like most people and he wants to know at least one secret from Star Wars Episode VII. So when Harrison Ford was a guest on his TBS late night show tonight, he brought out the big bucks to get Han Solo talk. The red head took out ten $100 bills and they were all Indiana Jones, if he revealed something about the upcoming movie. So did Conan get his money worth? You will just have to watch the very funny interaction between the two to find out.
Let’s just say talk shows haven’t been paying Indiana Jones enough for his liking to go there and do that “sh!t”. Yes folks, celebrities are paid a small fee to appear on talk shows.
Almost two years ago Harrison Ford was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and his ex-friend Chewbacca sneaked in to see him to make a mends. But Han Solo kicked him out, telling him he never wanted to see him again.
Well yesterday Indiana Jones was once again on the ABC late night show and Chewbacca came back. To say Ford didn’t take it so well, would be an understatement. As soon as he saw the man who caused his ex-wife to still cough up hairballs, he called him a Son of a Bitch. When the Wookiee pleaded to let bygones be bygones, it only led to Ford being so upset he walked out of the interview. I guess once you stab him in the heart with a light saber, he will never forgive the person/Wookiee who did that to him.
Hopefully they can end this feud before they film the next Star Wars movie, that is if either one of them is asked to do it.
Now in Chewie’s defense, Ford was already in a bad mood. Right before the question and answer section Kimmel rubbed the fact that he scored an out of the park home run in a game he played, while Harrison couldn’t pitch a ball all the way to home plate from the mound. When you watch the video below, you can see how awkward it was between the actor and the host. So it wasn’t like Chewbacca had a chance.
Harrison Ford was on The Late Show and David Letterman asked him if he is going to be in the next Star Wars. Then Han Solo asked the CBS late night host to drop that line of questioning because it is a sensitive topic for him. That’s because for a long time they haven’t asked him to be part of it. You can tell that he is really hurt by that, at least I think that is his hurt reaction because he really doesn’t show any.
Seriously how can you have a sequel to the Star Wars trilogy and not have him in it? May the force be with Han Solo.
Star Wars’ Luke Skywalker and Star Trek’s Sulu are uniting for a very important cause, they are bring their Star power together to appear on ABC’s The Neighbors next month. Tom Jo who plays Reggie Jackson on the sitcom that airs Wednesdays at 8:30p Tweeted a picture of Mark Hamill and George Takei together and we learn that they can get along. So take that William Shatner and Carrie Fisher? You know when the show comes back next season maybe they can bring peace to those mortal enemies. But until then we get a glimpse of the two Star worlds uniting as one and not just because J.J. Abrams is the luckiest geek on planet earth!
When it was announced that Disney was going to make 3 new Star Wars films, I am sure I am not the only one who was hoping that J.J. Abrams would direct at least one of them. Well the man who brought us Felicity gave us some news that was as devastating as that horrible haircut she got. According to The Hollywood Reporter he told Empire Magazine, “There were the very early conversations, and I quickly said that, because of my loyalty to Star Trek and also just being a fan, I wouldn’t even want to be involved in the next version of those things.” Then he added, “I declined any involvement very early on. I’d rather be in the audience not knowing what was coming, rather than being involved in the minutiae of making them.”
So now that he is out, it will be interesting to see who will get their dream job.
Earlier this week Disney bought out George Lucas’ company and they announced that would be releasing some new Star War films. Well any director that is 50 and under would give everything they have just for the opportunity to direct one of the upcoming chapters. And so far three of them have thrown their hats and/or glasses into race for that job. Yesterday on Conan, the audition tapes were released for Michael Moore, Woody Allen and Kevin Smith’s and I think it already looks better than Episode 1, 2 and 3 combined! Maybe all three of them could do it together, it would still be better than anything Lucas has done since the late ’80s.
Seriously you can tell Conan had a lot of fun with this and I enjoyed watching what they did! Hopefully they will do more of them!
BTW who do you think should direct the next Star Wars installment? My friend thinks Ben Affleck would be a good choice, and I would love if J.J. Abrams and Joss Whedon could do it together. It will be interesting to see who it will be?
Finally my friend who camped out for Episodes 1, 2 and 3 is undecided as of now if will be on line in 2015 for Episode 7. I am sure he will be, but Lucas has turned him against the franchise so you never know. And my love of Jar Jar Binks has turned him against me. Yes I know I am his sole fan.
