Just when parents were hoping their children would finally be over Frozen, Disney announced today that they are working on a sequel for the movie. So try not to tell your kids for as long as you can. Which they probably already know because it is spreading like lice at school.
Now kids, don’t tell your parents but they are going to get 2 more Star Wars movie in the next couple of years. Star Wars VIII is coming out on May 26, 2017. If that is not enough for them and they need something to hold them over until then, the franchise gets its first standalone movie Rogue One that is coming out on December 16, 2016. It looks like we will be getting a new Star Wars movie every year like Saw. So now that they get to act like kids over that news.
UPDATE: Kristen Bell is already prepping to play Anna again!
Now that Star Wars is fully Disneyfied, it is getting its own special cruise on the Disney Cruise Line. Actually it is getting 8 cruises early next year. That’s right, Star Wars fans can gather on a boat together and watch Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. Not only that they can also experience: a deck party celebration, meet-and-greets with their favorite Star Wars characters, Star Wars-themed activities for younglings of all ages, out-of-this-world food and beverage offerings, exclusive merchandise and so much more!
While it might not be the X-Wing Fighter, it is pretty darn close. So if the force is with you to take one of the 8 cruises they are offering from January to April then you can find out more information at the Disney Cruise Line webpage. As Yoda would say, “Fun it should be!”
The moment Star Wars fans have been waiting for is finally here, the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released to today. It is just a little taste of what you have been waiting a long long long time for, and did it fill you up?
I wasn’t that impressed with it because I wanted to see the characters I know and not the ones I don’t. Where was Luke? Where was Princess Leia? Where was Hans Solo? Where were R2D2 and C-3P0? I know the true fans are happy to see the Millennium Falcon, but that doesn’t impress me much. What about you?
Before James Earl Jones was just saying three letters for CNN, he was saying all 26 of them for Sesame Street. How sexy is the bald 37 year old in that 1969 episode?
Fun fact – He was Sesame’s Street’s first celebrity guest start! Happy 45th Birthday to the show that taught us our ABC’s and 123’s.
Star Wars VII has finished filming and by doing so we found a name for the movie. It is going to be called Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
What do you think of the title for the long awaited film that is coming out on December 18, 2015? I don’t know what it is about the title, but I like it and think it is fitting.
Sylvester Stallone was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon asked him about some of his Expendables 3 co-stars. The NBC late night host asked him if he knew Harrison Ford from working in the business for so long. Rambo told him a story that after he finished filming Rocky, he went in for an audition for some move about a space vehicle called Star Wars. As soon as he walked in, he could tell they were all like next. So before they could say anything, he gave them a one, two punch of “Let me just make it easier for you. I would look like crap in Spandex, leotards and a ray gun. I get it.” Then he added, “Guys from Space don’t have this kind of face.”
So even though he didn’t get the role in one of the biggest franchises of all time, he did OK for himself. Even though in a way Arnold Schwarzenegger almost sabotaged his career because the two of them were up for the same movies. Because of that Sly would do things like Stop or My Will Shoot, so the Terminator wouldn’t get the role. Which is a movie I really liked to be honest.
Next Year Star Wars fans are going to get a new movie in their beloved franchise. Star Wars VII just started filming recently and a few days ago they released 40 photos from the set. Well of course those pictures got those uber fans excited and when I say excited, I mean ex-ci-ted. So Conan O’Brien took some of their reactions, put together a video and called it The Star Wars Nerdgasm Choir. And that is the closest that most of them are going to get to having an actual orgasm.
After months of speculation, the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII was finally announced today. And just like in 1977 when Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker were all cast in the original movie (and are back for this one), the new cast members are basically unknowns.
So who are they? They are John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. We might know who they are now, but come December 18, 2015 we will know everything about them like who their 4th grade teacher was and what that teacher thought of their former student. So what do you think of the cast of the 7th movie in the most famous franchise?
Finally, how come C-3PO was not invited to the welcoming party? Granted, if he was going to be treated with the same respect that they gave R2-D2, then I can’t say I blame him for not showing up.
We all know that James Earl Jones’ deep distinctive voice is the one we hear behind Darth Vader’s black mask, but what if it was Winnie the Pooh’s voice we heard? Well, now if you press play and close your eyes, you will find out because Jim Cummings, the man behind the lovable bear, read Anakin Skywalker’s lines in the voice we know him for. Let’s just say, it is so not the same. I can’t even fathom him saying, “No, I am your father,” like that. It would totally not have the same haunting effect that it had in Return of the Jedi.
What other infamous voices would you like to hear as Darth Vader’s?
