Something, something, awakens.
Internet, you may break now.
Based on this amazing post by Tanner Ringerud.
The filmmaker, Lucasfilm, and Disney are teaming up with crowdfunding charity site Omaze to launch the new initiative Star Wars: Force for Change.
The J.J. Abrams-directed sequel to 1983’s Return of the Jedi begins principal photography this May.
There is growing speculation — or perhaps a better word is hope — that Iger, Disney’s current chairman and CEO, will extend his contract and remain with the company past the June 30, 2016, date currently set for him to retire.
If you get Jar Jar, you lose.
My only question: How do I get on Lucas’ mailing list?!
Since 2008, Marvel Studios’ eight movies have grossed $5 billion in global box office, all thanks to one simple, radical invention: the mega-franchise. Can Hollywood catch up? And should they?
Hamill talks about “George’s movie,” leaking information, and why he’s apprehensive about the new installments to the franchise.
Behold the awesome power of this fully functional bracket. Choose a side and get ready to vote beginning March 18th.
That didn’t take long. Hollywood insiders leaked information to Vulture stating Michael Arndt has written a 40 page treatment.
When Disney bought Lucasfilm, it didn’t just get Star Wars — it picked up the real wizards of the movie industry, George Lucas’s Industrial Light & Magic. Movies wouldn’t look half as cool today without these crucial firsts.
Mergers lead to hate. Hate leads to anger. Anger gives way to hope. The Internet is torn between loathing of corporate takeover and wishing for a better future for the franchise.
Lucas didn’t just make Star Wars. Whether Disney will do anything with these latent IPs is anyone’s guess.
In two words: Star. Wars.
With Star Wars coming to Disney, this could actually mean great things for the Rebel Alliance.
Which may lead to some odd pairings. George Lucas sold his production company to Disney for $4.05 billion.
Not that he’s bitter. Of course, this movie in hindsight should’ve warned us about Lucas’s long, painful decline.
Propmaker Andrew Ainsworth takes you through a step-by-step process on how to make your very own Stormtrooper helmet. Fun fact: Ainsworth recently defeated Lucasfilm in a legal dispute over the right to sell sculptures of the Imperial headgear, which he designed for George Lucas and sold to The God Of Flannel himself back in the ’70s for approximately $32 per helmet.
