Bad Robots like IMAX, but what are their thoughts on sand?

#bestformatever, Bad Robot tweeted with this picture a few moments ago. Episode VII in IMAX was confirmed in March, but hey: Sand.

UPDATE: Pajiba, per IMAX, says that Abrams has three IMAX cameras for Episode VII – only four working ones exist, with the fourth being used for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. More to the point, they claim Episode VII will be post-converted to 3D for both regular and IMAX screenings.

Episode VII adds two new cast members

Pip Andersen, Crystal Clarke

StarWars.com interrupts this holiday weekend to bring us… “Thomas” and “Rachel.” For real, this time: Pip Andersen and Crystal Clarke have won the coveted open call parts.

The update also contains some brief production information, including a two-week hiatus coming in August. Meanwhile, Harrison Ford is “doing well and is looking forward to returning to the set soon” as shooting – and the release date – remain “on track.”

This morning in Episode VII: Kevin Smith says Abrams “has nailed it”

ksmith-pinewoodHe may have signed an NDA, but Kevin Smith has let loose some details about his Episode VII set visit, most notably that the film will involve stormtroopers. (Which has been bandied about so much that it’s not really a surprise at this point.) Also, this:

“I’m really excited and you know, people keep saying that I liked the last trilogy and I did. I liked 1, 2 and 3. But I liked them as an adult, when I watched them they didn’t give me the same feeling I had when I was seven watching them for the first time and that’s fine. This movie though… Dude, I cried four times. The seven year old in me came. [J.J] has f*cking captured it, man. He has nailed it.”

Anklewatch! People is all over Harrison Ford’s crutch situation. “I wish everybody was so easy. He gets it. He’s mechanically inclined,” Brad Hunter, the director of business development for the iWalk crutch told them. “It’s a very active way to do recovery.”

Mystery! Why are there “Star Wars 7″ signs in Atlanta? Is someone pulling a prank?

Rumors! Making Star Wars has a couple things that I’m about 99.9% sure are complete and utter bullshit from the same well as that Reclamation treatment from last year. Not buying the Boyega thing, either.

Rumor: Billie Lourd to play Leia in flashbacks?

FRYSQUINT: SEQUEL TRILOGY RUMORS: Take seriously at your own risk.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.
