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.
Episode VII is still searching for actors? Granted, this is second hand, but according to a friend of Brien Bell (aka James T. Skywalker) they’re auditioning for leads today at CalArts. Right down to the wire…
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?
Great Bloomberg feature on Marvel’s Kevin Feige. And some interesting implications for Star Wars, if you read between the lines: Doesn’t Marvel’s “six-member creative committee with people steeped in comic book lore” sound a lot like Lucasfilm’s Story Group?
WonderCon has posted the blurb for their Star Wars Rebels panel on Saturday, April 19 at 2:00p.m.
Members of the cast and crew of Star Wars Rebels present an exclusive look at the highly anticipated television series. Star Wars Rebels is set between Episodes III and IV, and it is a dark time in the galaxy. In the spirit of the original trilogy, the Empire is once again the preeminent villain of the saga, and Star Wars Rebels puts the might of Imperial forces in the spotlight. Produced by Lucasfilm Animation and featuring many of the key talents from the Emmy Award-winning Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels is scheduled to premiere this fall as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel; it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
Looks like this could be our first chance to see the core cast and crew together. Alas, Saturday badges for WonderCon – held at the same Anaheim Convention Center that will host next year’s Celebration – are already sold out.
Star Wars Reads Day returns October 11. The event is back for it’s third year.
