jj-tds

The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams was on The Daily Show last night – technically to promote Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, which he produced – but he did tell a story from the Star Wars set. Turns out, Harrison Ford wasn’t the only one injured in the door incident… And Abrams has a pretty good Woody Allen impression to go with his Lawrence Kasdan. Who knew?

Video is below the cut.

vf-cover-bts

A little bit of Vanity Fair’s cover story on The Force Awakens went up at midnight – along with a behind-the-scenes video that gives us a peek at what some of the pictures may be – including a helmetless Kylo Ren (Yes, he’s Adam Driver. Shocking!)


There’s also a bigger version of the cover, but no more pictures – yet. One is set to go out in VF’s email newsletter tomorrow afternoon, though. And head below the cut for a few screenshots from the video.

The issue will be available digitally on May 7, and on newsstands May 12.

Vanity Fair’s The Force Awakens photos are coming

vanity-fair-star-warsVanity Fair has revealed their latest Star Wars cover ahead of May the 4th. The now-traditional Annie Leibovitz photos will be online May 4… And on newstands not long after.

All three prequels had similar features, including that big ‘family photo‘ from 2005.

It’s not tough to find the old stuff online, but maybe Vanity Fair will put their own gallery back up online now?

Harrison Ford stable after crash landing

Officials have confirmed that Harrison Ford was indeed involved in a crash landing at an L.A. area golf course this afternoon. Ford is in stable condition, People reports. A family member told the local NBC station that the actor is fine and suffered only a few gashes. And his son, Ben Ford, tweeted “At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man.”

UPDATE: Ford’s publicist has released a statement:

Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which had engine trouble upon take off. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care. The injuries sustained are not life threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery.

The pilot’s injuries were classified as “fair to moderate” by first responders. TMZ was first to report the crash.

You said it, Chewie.

This weekend in Episode VII: Wrap party!

artoo-boyega-wrapAlthough there are some rumblings that filming isn’t quite done for all, Saturday night was the wrap party for Episode VII. John Boyega posted a photo with Artoo and a video to his Instagram, and later shared another from the party. Naturally, the paparazzi were there. (Yes, Simon Pegg was there, so get ready for another round of ‘does he have a role?!?‘)

And you can get a closer look at the Artoo – presumably the same one used during the filmng – at Indie Revolver.

Roundup: How Abu Dhabi nabbed Episode VII and more

ep7-imax→ Abu Dhabi nabbed Star Wars from Jordan at the very last minute, according to a new article in The Hollywood Reporter.

→ Harrison Ford is flying around England, while John Boyega and Lupita Nyong’o are either hanging out with his likeness or they both have the same one. Mystery!

→ And finally, in the possible spoiler department, Making Star Wars describes a ship that is either very Falcon-like or an alternate Falcon model. Jason has also seen two more alphabet fighters and X-wing concepts. And then he heard from someone who witnessed some filming at Pinewood.
