Mark Hamill appearing at Celebration Anaheim isn’t exactly a surprise – it’ll be his third Celebration, and he’s in that little movie due in December – but good to know.
I saw his chat with James Arnold Taylor at Celebration VI, and it was a lot of fun.
Hamill is the latest addition to a lineup of guests that includes J.J. Abrams, Kathleen Kennedy, Carrie Fisher and more.
John Boyega talks Star Wars, Daisy Ridley, makes lightsaber sounds. BBC’s Lizo Mzimba caught up with him this weekend at the Bafta Film Awards.
Richard Bonehill, who played Nien Nunb in Return of the Jedi, has passed away at age 67. Nunb is his most recognizable Star Wars role, but the expert swordsman also played troopers, pilots, aliens and even a tauntaun handler in ROTJ and The Empire Strikes Back.
Mark Hamill on Kingsman, Flash, and new Star Wars. “It’s exciting from the standpoint that it’s the first of the movies in that universe that’s conceived and directed by the fan generation,” he tells the L.A. Times.

I think we know who the new Boba Fett really is now…
Peter Mayhew recovering from pneumonia in hospital. “He will make a full recovery, and hope to be discharged within a few days,” wife Angie told Reddit.
George Lucas: Museum could go to L.A. if Chicago falls through. He’s still set on Chicago, but there’s currently a lawsuit over the lakefront location. He also revealed that his plan was to film the sequel(s) at the Marin County studio project that was scuttled* in 2012.
Liam Neeson wouldn’t mind returning to Star Wars. He’s not sure how it would happen – spinoff? – but he’s willing. And, naturally, he has concerns about the broadsaber.
Aaron Allston is one of Cracked’s overlooked deaths of 2014. Sure, he may not be overlooked to us, but the mainstream is another matter. And, as another Jader pointed out, he’d get a huge kick out of being described as “author of Star Wars storylines J.J. Abrams will probably disregard.” Yub yub, Emperor.
