Since we’ve been, er, off-the-air, there’s been quite a few “Star Wars” nuggets dropped.
Here’s an assortment of “Episode VII” bits we’ve missed due to, er, well, our disappearing act this week.
The Emperor’s first name is…
Barney. Or not…
Warwick Davis returns!
Warwick Davis, best known for playing ‘Wicket’ in “Star Wars Episode VI : Return of the Jedi”, is returning to the franchise. The English actor confirmed his return to Lucasfilm’s super-saga in a video-cast over on the official site today.
Production is nearly complete…
on “Episode VII”. Harrison Ford has completed his duties on the flick, and the rest of the cast and crew will be ‘done’ in three weeks. Kathleen Kennedy tells Variety, “We are standing here within three weeks of finishing ‘Episode VII. This continues a long tradition of filming ‘Star Wars’ in London, going back to 1976. It is remarkable this all came together in less than two years. ‘Star Wars’ is filmmaking that inspires technical excellence.”
Spoilery Concept Pics
I’m not embedding or uploading them here, because they’re just too spoilery, but an Imageshack account called “themillenniumfalcom” has posted 32 drawings from the eagerly anticipated film. Don’t look if you want to be completed surprised come December 2015! Go here if you DON’T want to be surprised.
Who IS Adam Driver playing?
It’s long believed that Drivcr will be playing a villain in the film, but who? Sources suggest he could be playing an evil X-Wing Pilot to an ancestor of Count Dooku.
