Harrison Ford’s injury may change Star Wars VII’s story, reason to believe Tom Cruise might be in the movie

Two Star Wars VII stories simultaneously— first is that Harrison Ford’s leg break he suffered on set may drastically change the story of the movie. Originally, we had heard that Han Solo played a major role in VII, but with Ford breaking his leg, it’s bad enough that he won’t be able to shoot for 6 months, which is kind of a crisis for Disney. This means either they’re going to have to delay a whole lot of filming for a while or they’re going to have to do a major rewrite in order to lessen Han Solo’s presence in the film. And the second Star Wars story is a rumor that Tom Cruise might have a cameo in the film. It sounds like a totally bullshit random internet rumor, but Cruise is good friends with JJ Abrams and supposedly has had meetings with Abrams lately, so it may not be as much off the wall bullcrap as it appears at first.

Looper’s Rian Johnson scores the Star Wars VIII writing and directing gig

For starting the Star Wars movies back up, Disney has picked JJ Abrams for Episode VII, and earlier this week, Rian Johnson, probably best known as the brilliant writer/director behind ‘Looper’, announced he had been picked to head Episode VIII. And this is why if you’re a Star Wars fan, Disney taking over the franchise from George Lucas is perhaps the best thing ever— because as we all know, just because Lucas invented the universe, he’s proven time and again that Star Wars turns out best when he has the least amount of involvement. And going forward, it looks like Star Wars movies could be wonderful showpieces for innovative directors and storytellers to take the Star Wars universe in some very interesting directions.

If only Disney also owned DC, this would probably happen at some point— Jedis vs Justice League or something.

Insane video has every single word uttered in the original Star Wars movie spliced together in alphabetical order

In 43 minutes, here is every single teeny tiny word said by anyone in Star Wars Episode IV in alphabetical order. For some reason. Fun fact though: the word “lightsaber” is only said once, so that’s pretty crazy.

Afternoon Star Wars: David Lynch’s Return of the Jedi

Leaked Star Wars VII set images show a lot more models, much less CGI

While animators can do completely amazing things with the power of computers and a green screen, there are times when too much is too much. When George Lucas launched the prequel trilogy, one of the biggest complaints other than a shitty script, a shitty young Anakin Skywalker and Jar Jar Banks was that many fans felt Lucas went way too CGI heavy and the films lost a lot of soul when characters like Yoda went from old fashioned puppetry and animatronics to existing only in digital form. But today, TMZ justified their existence by leaking over 40 SW7 set photos showing that JJ Abrams appears to be doing it the right way— with puppets, animatronics and model buildings. High five! Oooh! Too much lens flare!

"She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid."

Star Wars fan Bill Deacon transformed his 1974 Chevy Malibu into a street-legal replica of the Millennium Falcon. The road vehicle-turned-spacecraft features all sorts of great details, including HANCHWY vanity plates and a field of streaking stars around the ship’s bow on the hood and front bumper. But our favorite feature is the cockpit mounted in place of the right starboard side-view mirror that contains Han Solo and Chewbacca action figures.

What would Star Wars look like had it been made by Quentin Tarantino? Something kinda like this.

Star Wars fan film of the day: ‘Star Wars: Legends’

Originally planned to be finished in 2007 for the Star Wars 30th Anniversary, this edit went uncompleted for years. Now with Episode VII coming out, it had seemed pointless to finish. But in honor of the great, late Don Lafontaine who provided an AMAZING voice over, I had to get this out there even though it’s a bit rough around the edges. I could not let “THE VOICE” go unheard. Many thanks to the creators of original fan film works who provided footage for this edit.
