Just ahead of the trailer (SOON,) we get the theatrical poster reveal. Head under the cut for the whole thing.
It’s been a year since Pablo Hidalgo introduced us to one of The Force Awakens most important bits of fanon: General Hux’s cat, Millicent. And I never did get around to doing a followup to last year’s post on the matter. So here’s another batch of great stuff from Tumblr.
It’s been almost 21 years of Club Jade, but all things must pass. In accordance with Star Wars canon, Club Jade is being renamed after a more worthy ginger. Behold Club Hux!
Marvel today announced (via Comic Book Resources) that they’re doing a 5-issue adaptation of The Force Awakens for June. Aftermath author Chuck Wendig is writing, with Luke Ross on art.
The first The Force Awakens comic, an ongoing featuring Poe Dameron, will launch in April.
→ Jedi News noticed that The Force Awakens Blu-ray is now listed as a three-disc set – two Blu-rays and one DVD – on Blu-ray.com. Everyone is still playing coy on the release date, but it’s probably April 5.
→ Co-producer Ben Rosenblatt talks to The Hollywood Reporter about the film’s final shot.
→ Jason Fry explains how General Hux’s father became part of his Rebels tie-in series, Servants of the Empire.
→ Variety looks into how ILM made Starkiller Base crumble. Spoiler: Computers.
At the Los Angeles Times, Domhnall Gleeson talks about why the character of General Hux appealed to him:
I liked him because he allowed me to explore the notion of authority — he’s someone who enjoys authority and holds onto it at all costs. The costume was brilliant and added a whole other layer for me. We talked about the idea that he’s an obsessive and probably doesn’t sleep much.
So he was pale with dark eyes. We wanted him to look like somebody who was dead set on one thing.
Meanwhile, Gwendoline Christie discusses Captain Phasma’s lack of face time with Entertainment Weekly:
I thought it was a really interesting opportunity to play a female character where we formed an opinion of her based on her actions rather than the way she has been made flesh. And that concept within a Star Wars movie, a mainstream phenomenon, was very modern and interesting and exciting.
Both characters are confirmed to appear in Episode VIII.
