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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
‘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.
Harrison Ford has not been paying attention to the search to find a young Han Solo, which should come to the surprise of absolutely no one who has ever witnessed an interview with or public appearance by Harrison Ford.
This week, word got out that Disney and Lucasfilm are leaving no stone unturned in their search for an actor that can take on a very heady task: Playing a young version of Han Solo in an upcoming Star Wars spin-off film. So far, more than 2,500 actors have read for the part in directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s movie, including stars such as Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars), Miles Teller (Whiplash), and Logan Lerman (Fury).
Will we get to see baby Han try on his first tiny vest and befriend the Wookiees at daycare? Or will we meet the Millennium Falcon pilot shortly before the events of Star Wars? Speaking to EW, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy assured fans that Han Solo’s stand-alone movie would document his wild youth, but not in an Anakin-Skywalker-racing-pods kind of way.
Josh Holloway has never shied away from his love of Han Solo. As Sawyer on Lost, he was always dropping Solo-esque wisecracks, and he even found himself in a Luke-Leia-Han triangle with Jack (Matthew Fox) and Kate (Evangeline Lilly). Through the years, he’s been asked if he’d ever want to take over the role from Harrison Ford and always expressed interest.
