I don’t know, man. #Beardwatch?
Episode VII to resume filming “later this month.” Thanks, Ric Olie.
New leaked Episode VII pictures from Pinewood? (In English.) French site Mint In Box have three new pictures they think are the Millennium Falcon. One could be old (though I don’t recognize it) but two contain green screen, which wasn’t used back in the days of the original trilogy. The fourth picture is a new (Imperial?) corridor of some sort.
Is this what the Episode VII stormtroopers will look like? Artist Tom Hodges has seen one, and drew it.
Congratulations to the winner, D.C. Barns of Denver! Together, fans raised over $4.26 million for UNICEF, plus an additional $1 million contribution from Disney. Below the cut, a note from J.J. Abrams, and a robot hand…
What has Luke Skywalker been up to for the last 30 years? MAD Magazine (uh-oh) has some answers…
Domhnall Gleeson talks about why he can’t say that much about Episode VII on Huffpost Live. He’s promoting his new movie, Frank, but Star Wars first comes up at about 8:11, and begins earnestly at 9:51, where he discusses the non-disclosure agreement. He does also say he got the part the day before the table read. (via)
Meanwhile, he’s also on Coming Soon, talking about the film’s secrecy:
When you walk from your trailer to the set – you’re in Pinewood Studios – you have to put on a big, black cloak thing to cover all of your clothes, like full length, ’cause they’re worried about people seeing costumes and stuff. It’s crazy.
Also note: Still ginger. Still (kinda) bearded. #Beardwatch continues!
