The latest discovery of the Millennium Falcon on Google Maps represents another round in the cat-and-mouse game between producers and fans.
Only fans with Jedi-level skills will be able to get their hands on this 300-piece set featuring two iconic characters.
As Han Solo himself would say, "I've got a bad feeling about this." In a bombshell statement late Tuesday, Lucasfilm announced that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller would no longer helm the Han Solo standalone film — a project they have been developing since 2015 and a shoot that was only weeks away from wrapping.
According to Carrie Fisher, she and Harrison Ford had an intense affair while filming the original ‘Star Wars’ movie. The 60-year-old ‘Star Wars’ actress details the encounter in her new memoir, ‘The Princess Diarist’, which reveals the three-month affair with the then-33-year-old father of two. After stumbling upon her angst-ridden journals from during her time filming the original ‘Star Wars’, Fisher explained that she felt it was the right time to come clean.
The new romantic dramedy Rules Don’t Apply marks the first film in 15 years from Warren Beatty, who wrote, directed, produced, and stars in the picture as eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes. Just as central to the film, however, are young leads Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins. Collins (Mortal Instruments) plays Marla Mabrey, a straight-edged singer-actress from rural Virginia who moves to Hollywood in the 1950s under the “employment” of Hughes, who was infamous for keeping a small army of beautiful actresses under contract for his production studio, RKO Pictures, even if he didn’t have any films for them.
While ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ is the film on everyone’s mind as we see out 2016, one of Disney and Lucasfilm’s other spin-offs, the young Han Solo movie, has a lot of buzz around it. Its star Alden Ehrenreich, the actor chosen to play the cocky smuggler made famous by Harrison Ford, has spoken about the exciting addition of ‘Community’s’ Donald Glover and how Chewbacca will feature. Speaking to HeyUGuys, the ‘Hail, Caesar!’ star isn’t allowed to say a lot, but was excited about the prospect of Glover (who also goes by the Childish Gambino rapper alias) involved in the project.
One of the key revelations from the recent ‘Star Wars’ movie appeared to be that since getting together in ‘Return of the Jedi’, Princess Leia and Han Solo had split by ‘The Force Awakens’. No honeymoon period for us, just the awkwardness of an estranged couple embarrassed by the dreadful behaviour of their now-distant son Kylo Ren. ...
‘Rogue One’ director Gareth Edwards has shot down speculation that Alden Ehrenreich will make his debut as Han Solo in the upcoming blockbuster. One of the many, many, many rumours regarding ‘Rogue One’ was that the recent reshoots for the film included a scene featuring Ehrenreich as the galaxy’s most famous smuggler.
The production company set up by Disney to make ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ has pleaded guilty to two criminal charges over the on-set accident that lead to Harrison Ford breaking his leg. According to the BBC, Foodles Production (UK) Ltd admitted to two of the four criminal charges brought by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court earlier today, and will be sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on 22 August.
As we’ve noted before, despite what transpired at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Han Solo is anything but dead. Sure, the old guy might have been Kylo Renned, toppled into a nigh bottomless chasm, and consumed by a supernova-powered explosion, but his younger self is alive and adventuring. Here's a new peek at Marvel's Han Solo No. 1, coming out next month.
Rising British star Jack O'Connell has been on a roll lately, landing lead roles in high-profile dramas directed by Angelina Jolie (Unbroken) and Jodie Foster (Money Monster).
Star Wars: The Force Awakens left so many questions unanswered about what happened between the Ewok’s partying down at the end of Return of the Jedi and Poe Dameron’s mission to Jakku. What happened to the New Republic? How did the remnants of the Empire morph into the First Order? What was Han and Leia’s relationship like? What happened between Ben Solo and Luke Skywalker? While we’re still clueless about the latter question (hey, Episode VIII is only a 18 months away), most of the others are tackled head-on in Bloodline, the new Star Wars novel by Claudia Gray released this week.
The young Han Solo will be played by Alden Ehrenreich, according to reports. The ‘Hail, Caesar!’ star is in 'final negotiations’ for the 'Star Wars’ spin-off movie, beating a huge field of other hopefuls. 2,500 other young actors were seen for the role, including British star Taron Edgerton, star of 'Kingsman’, Jack Raynor from 'Transformers: Edge of Extinction’, 'Divergent’s Ansel Elgort, and Emory Cohen who starred in 'Brooklyn’.
<strong>UPDATED, 7:22 PM:</strong> We don’t know if he’ll shoot first, but he has the job. Alden Ehrenreich will play Han Solo in Disney’s stand-alone <em>Star Wars</em> movie, confirming what Deadline reported exclusively three weeks ago. Sources say the <em>Hail Caesar!</em> star is negotiating to seal the deal. The film will cover events in Han Solo’s life that took place prior to his appearance in 1977’s <em>Star Wars,</em> but no story details have been revealed. But before Disney’s 2012 purchase of Lucasfilm…
Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives on iTunes and other digital download services today and with it comes the in-depth bonus Secrets of “The Force Awakens”: A Cinematic Journey. There’s the sheer giddiness of newcomers Daisy Ridley and John Boyega and a crew tasked with revisiting George Lucas’s iconic galaxy tempered by the unadulterated neuroticism of director J.J. Abrams (who says he felt “primal terror” going into the first day of shooting). For months before the film’s release, Fisher, 59, was outspoken about the difficulty of returning to her career-defining role as Princess Leia.
Just so you know there are SPOILERS ahead for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’. ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ was a rather emotional ride. This was down to one scene in particular, which saw Harrison Ford’s Han Solo killed by his own son Kylo Ren, formerly Ben Solo, played by Adam Driver.
Despite what we saw at the climax of Star Wars: The Force Awakens — the beloved rapscallion run through by his son’s lightsaber in a moment that still brings tears to our eyes — Lucasfilm is going to great lengths to reassure fans that Han Solo is immortal. Like that moment at the end of Pulp Fiction when John Travolta triumphantly exits the diner, even though his character was killed in a scene moments earlier, Star Wars’ roguish hero continues to live on in that galaxy far, far away. Written by Star Wars vet Lawrence Kasdan (who’s known for his crackling Han Solo dialogue) and son Jon and helmed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie), the anthology movie will be set before the events of A New Hope.
Peter Mayhew, the actor under the fur suit in the original Star Wars trilogy and The Force Awakens, has been taking to Twitter for the past few weeks to post his script for the 1977 film that launched the franchise. For years, it was clear to pretty much everyone in the galaxy that Han wasn’t going to be outrdrawn by a lizard-looking twerp, and that before Greedo could pull the trigger, Han shot first.
Disney are currently on the lookout for the perfect actor to play the Young Han Solo in the upcoming solo film for the famous smuggler. In fact, they’ll be looking for any advice that they can get, especially if it’s coming from someone associated with the ‘Star Wars’ universe.
The shortlist for the young Han Solo in the forthcoming spin-off movie has been revealed. According to Variety, executives at Disney and Lucasfilm have now narrowed the field from thousands to just a handful of young actors. The movie business bible names ‘Fantastic Four’s Miles Teller, 'Divergent’s Ansel Elgort, James Franco’s brother Dave, and Clint Eastwood’s son Scott Eastwood among those being considered.
Harrison Ford’s pay cheque for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ is said to have made a rather substantial 76 times more than newcomers Daisy Ridley and John Boyega were paid for their parts in the movie. According to a report in the Mail on Sunday, Ford, who reprises his role as Han Solo, got a fee of £16.7 million, and will get 0.5 per cent of profits from the movie. It’s said that Ford also received £1 million in compensation after his leg was broken in the door of the Millennium Falcon while filming at Pinewood Studios.
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ is in cinemas now across the world and we predict that a million voices across the galaxy will cry out with joy when the final credits roll. JJ Abrams has delivered a slam-dunk of a movie that fans are going to love.
Over the years we’ve had mixed signals from everyone’s favourite ‘Star Wars’ rogue Harrsion Ford about whether he loves or loathes the franchise (we reckon a bit of both), but what does he think about the upcoming spin-off Han Solo movie? Speaking recently about the project that’ll see his icon character recast, Ford didn’t hold back from the grumpy, snappy responses we’re oh so used to. - Star Wars: Rogue One Script Re-Written?
