New director Ron Howard has
tweeted his first photo from the Han Solo set… And it isn’t really much of anything. Oh well.
“Cool scene today,” he wrote. “But I’m afraid this is the most revealing image I dare share from my 1st day on the set of the Untitled Han Solo movie.”
John Boyega revealed a gift from Rian Johnson on his Instagram, and a The Last Jedi hint – of sorts. The illustration expresses Boyega’s “frustration with the most complex Star Wars lingo.” So what could a bio-hexacrypt be, and what does it have to do with Finn? Tumblr user Bripenguin13 has a degree in cell biology and one (possible) explaination.
Meanwhile, if you’re still poking at
The Last Jedi title, Johnson has an answer. ( And more.)
Daisy Ridley discussed her reasons for leaving Instagram this week, saying she had a “lot of growing up to do” and that it was an “extra pressure.”
deleted her Instagram in July amid harassment over an anti-gun violence message. She currently only has an official Facebook page.
Director Rian Johnson has shared a photo on Instagram of
the first day of editing on Episode VIII.
Costumes, Thrawn and oh yeah, a couple of cons. Your tweets have not been forgotten, only delayed.

A tweet roundup is due, but as things wind down, there’s just been so much out there on Instagram and tweet from the Episode VIII cast and crew that they’re breaking out on their own.
Daisy Ridley shared
an already infamous face swap with director Rian Johnson, as well as teasing a new hairstyle. (Join me in hoping it’s not a padawan braid, please.) Johnson himself is sharing (recognizable, mostly) images of the Millennium Falcon. Also spotted: One Pablo Hidalgo, who punned.
Finishing up – or at least admitting to it – are
John Boyega and Anthony Daniels.
Perhaps we were too quick to assume that
Mark Hamill had lost the beard, though he does seem to be pulling double duty. (UPDATE: He’s now wrapped as well.)
And finally, your moment of zen:
Gary Fisher with “his two favorite stalkers.” A weird thing happens when you start to see enough of those emoji: They start making sense. Maybe one day I’ll wake up being able to read Aurebesh after all.
The film may wrap on the 22, but is Mark Hamill already done? Here’s hiding his face in a recent photo, but if you look closely the beard appears to be gone. In any case: Beardwatch.
→ Director Rian Johnson’s
Instagram remains vague to the point where he’s even posting actual garbage. (And more lights.) That set pic Daisy Ridley posted the other day is – as implied – one of his as well.
→ Rumor corner: What
Making Star Wars is reporting regarding one of those location shoots, and how it relates to some concept art.
→ In less revealing sequel-related news,
J.J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy are playable characters in Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, while Oscar Isaac and John Boyega are among the record number of new people invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences this year.
Episode VIII director Rian Johnson has shared a couple relevant photos on his Instagram and Twitter. In the first, we see
VIII’s “first piece of embroidered swag.” Then there’s an embroidered hat, featuring a ‘Space Bear’ – aka the film’s code name. Yet more signs that the end is nigh… But the third appears to be some sort of high-flying set shenanigans. Much less revealing than what we saw last time, but ain’t that the way.
UPDATE: And on Tuesday,
he tweets “Holy cow, we’re starting to wrap main cast members.” Now, the question is: Will we get a wrap announcement (and very possibly a title) before or during Celebration Europe?
In the past couple of weeks, We were.. Well, JadeConning. But then! Entertainment Weekly went all
Rogue One on us. Phew. Also, a puppy. Continue reading “It blows up, too: Best #StarWars and #RogueOne tweets for June 10-23”
