→ Meanwhile, for our non-spoiler reading friends, Carrie Fisher talks about ‘learning’ her lines.
→ Jedi News is replicating the Foodles magic to find two more newly registered productions: LUNAK HEAVY INDUSTRIES and SPACE BEAR INDUSTRIES. One is no doubt our first spin-off – is the other spin-off #2 or Episode VIII? Or something else entirely? Speculate away, my pretties!
→ Both Oscar Isaac and Carrie Fisher are in the press today, and they’re both talking (a bit) about Star Wars. Everyone’s jumping over Isaac’s ‘hundreds of stormtroopers’ line, but I think the other stuff he says is way more interesting. Carrie, of course, is Carrie.
→ J.J. Abrams will receive the Visual Effects Society’s Visionary Award in February.
→ Yearbook photos of Adam Driver prove he looked exactly like you’d expect Adam Driver to look like in high school.
Carrie Fisher remembers Robin Williams. “He made us all feel like he wished he could. He brought joy and surprise, and he would take you places you wouldn’t even know you wanted to be,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “He gave you all the things he would’ve wanted to have. And that’s what made him so generous.”
Okay, so THAT was adorable. Again. Below the cut, BOYEGAMAN, birds, and movie night.
Last week had parties, pictures, and a blonde Carrie Fisher, for some reason.
The iconic 1983 making of documentary is now up on the official Star Wars Youtube account… In nine parts. But the good news is: We got the last one yesterday, so I can finally post it.
Here’s a new twist to the Billie Lourd ‘casting’ – The Sun (of course) via the Mirror is now apparently claiming that Carrie Fisher’s daughter be playing the young Princess Leia in flashback scenes, complete with buns.
While I don’t doubt that Lourd and any number of others (The Sun also names J.J. Abrams’ father and father-in-law) will cameo, let’s not forget that British tabloids are the worst.
something is up… @JBoyega is being nice to me…?! mwah mwah right back at ya xx

Two weeks worth of tweets to catch up on here (and yes, the other one in a few days) so let’s just get to it… Oh, and in case you haven’t heard, Simon @Kinberg has joined the fun!
Though I will skip all the World Cup tweets, because we’re not that kind of blog, sweetheart.
The latest cast members make their debut (to us, anyway.)
I can finally say it out loud and proud: I'm going to a galaxy far far away! http://t.co/b39DjEEAzB

Below the cut, John Boyega is no doubt happy to have two less secrets to keep, someone is now verified, and Bad Robot goes to the Eye. (Oh, and don’t forget J.J. Abrams’ master trolling.)
