As we all know by now, Star Wars is gaining full speed, and will be shooting sometime next year for a December 18, 2015 release date. The film is currently being cast, and while official information will be scarce for a while, there’s always interesting little tid-bits that get out there, and here’s a few of the latest.
It’s been a little big over a year now that George Lucas signed over his empire to Disney, and it was a surprising move because we always figured George would be running the show no matter what. Yet perhaps as he’s approaching his 70th birthday Lucas wants to focus on other things, and enjoy spending time with his new family.
We just reported on TGD that JJ Abrams has regretted keeping the identity of the Star Trek: Into Darkness villain a secret for so long. If you don’t know it’s Khan by now, sorry to spoil that one for ya, but where have you been, in a cave?
After months of speculation, the new Star Wars finally has an official release date, December 18, 2015. Usually the Star Wars movies come out on Memorial Day, but now Disney will be breaking tradition and will give us a new Star Wars for Xmas two years from now.
As long time TGD readers know by now, JJ Abrams was hoping to have the next Star Wars movie open in 2016 so he wouldn’t be in a rush, but Disney has been adamant about the movie opening in 2015. At first, we figured it would come out on Memorial Day, which is usually when the Star Wars movies come out, but now a December 18, 2015 has been confirmed.
As we’ve reported here on TGD, the next Star Wars film, to be directed by JJ Abrams, is currently casting, and it has a December 18, 2015 release date. As a number of tent pole films are gearing up to start shooting next year, they’re all trying to nail down their casts as fast as possible so they can start shooting as soon as possible.
After all these years, I still have faint memories of seeing the Star Wars Holiday Special when it aired on November 17, 1978. It was the only time this special was ever shown, and George Lucas has said he wishes he could destroy every bootleg copy he could get his hands on with a hammer.
Last year, when Lucasarts got shut down, it was supposed to mean the end of Star Wars games. This was really a shame because the Star Wars had been making terrific progress, especially with The Force Unleashed.
It’s hard to think of a superhero story more in desperate need of a big screen reboot than The Fantastic Four. Well, okay, I’m still holding out hope for a Howard the Duck remake, but we think The Fantastic Four has much more potential.
Okay, so Disney just threw down the gauntlet, booking Star Wars on December 18, 2015, the same day World of Warcraft is scheduled to come out. But this is over two years down the road here, and there’s plenty of time to set up a new release date where the long awaited WoW movie can really kick some ass.
There have been so many rumors and net speculation about Star Wars lately, but here’s an official piece of news that’s absolutely bank on: The next Star Wars movie will be hitting theaters on December 18, 2015.
Once again, here with are with a new batch of Star Wars rumors and these have to do with the casting and the potential release date. We just reported on TGD that JJ Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy are trying to get an extension on finishing the movie and getting a 2016 release date, but apparently Disney is insisting the next Star Wars must come out in 2015.
Harrison Ford’s geek cred never needs to be explained. The guy Han Solo and Indiana Jones, what else do you need to know? And with Ender’s Game, he’s back in a sci-fi story he’s very proud to be a part of.
Getting any movie made is an enormous task, forget about trying to get a Star Wars movie made. The biggest directors in the business shuddered at the prospect of trying to helm the next Star Wars movie before JJ Abarms finally said yes, and there have definitely been some disturbances in the force since.
I’m cruising around the net looking for something to write about, and I see a headline about a Star Wars anniversary. Which one? It’s definitely not the anniversary of any of the movie’s releases. They all came out in the summer. When did the Holiday Special air? It couldn’t have been October, could it?
It’s been reported that Harrison Ford, along with Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, will be returning for the next Star Wars film, which is due to arrive in 2015. But could Ford be back for more Star Wars stories as well?
We at TGD have been following the developments of Ender’s Game very closely. It’s one of the most popular sci-fi books of the last thirty years, and a movie adaptation has been a long time coming. Now the reviews are in. The verdict?
There were rumors some months back that JJ Abrams was going to leave the Star Wars franchise. That hasn’t come to pass, but now reports have surfaced that Michael Arndt, who also penned Toy Story 3, is leaving the project, and JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan are taking over the screenplay from here.
Even though George Lucas sold his empire to Disney last year, you know he’ll still be looking out for the universe he created, and have at least some say over the next three Star Wars films. Considering Star Wars is a sacred property to JJ Abrams, you also know he’ll want to do right by George wherever he can.
Seth MacFarlane has had a remarkable career with the incredible success of Family Guy, and most recently Ted, which was a huge hit for Universal. In fact, Ted is one of the highest grossing comedies of all time, making $540 million worldwide, and the powers that be have been clamoring for a sequel.
