Although Brian at Tosche Station has already written a great response to the statement, and I agree with him wholeheartedly, I still feel I should address it personally.
It’s Fate of Four time in This Is Madness, as Obi-wan Kenobi and Han Solo face off for the light side, and Boba Fett and Darth Vader for the dark. These matchups will run through the weekend so vote… Err. As your heart tells you.
Rumor: Episode VII already filming in Cairo? And they’re going to Abu Dhabi as well, Jedi News has heard from a “solid source.” Okay? I’m starting to run out of salt here.
Today’s This Is Madness matchups. Han Solo vs. Captain Rex and Darth Vader vs. Jabba the Hutt. It’s pretty much a bloodbath.
I thought it was odd that Lucasfilm was collaborating with CBS’ The Big Bang Theory for a Star Wars Day episode instead of a show on Disney-owned ABC, but today we get word that The Goldbergs will have one as well – on May 6th:
The episode sees Adam (Sean Giambrone) and Erica (Hayley Orrantia) encounter elaborately costumed Star Wars fans, including Reno 911′s Thomas Lennon, while waiting in line at the Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi opening.
Now I have to wonder… Will NBC (Community? Parks and Rec?) or Fox (Brooklyn Nine-Nine?) get in on the Star Wars action as well?
Today’s featurette has current Star Wars artists, designers and other luminaries talking about concept art maestro Ralph McQuarrie.
No Jesse Plemons for Episode VII? The actor is in talks for the Whitey Bulger biopic Black Mass with Johnny Depp, says The Hollywood Reporter. Black Mass, like Episode VII, is slated to begin filming in May.
Plemons’ name first came up for Star Wars in January; he was even confirmed as a possible contender (well, someone “we’ve talked to”) by J.J. Abrams not long after. Plemons, along with another actor THR mentions as probably being out, Matthew James Thomas, were reportedly in the mix last month.
