  2. Mark Hamill Says the Force Awakens Ball Droid Is a Practical Effect He Got to Play With; We Are Jealous

    Don't worry. We can always go back and replace it with CGI later.

    BB-8, also known as the "ball droid," "rolling droid," or "most adorable thing about the Force Awakens trailer" is a real thing that exists in the world, and that makes us so happy. That's not the only thing Mark Hamill talked about in a recent interview, either. Read on for more about Jedi beards, returning actors, and little mechanical balls of wonder.

    Sure you do too, Hayden. Sure you do.

    Listen, if you happen to be the very specific kind of Star Wars fan who knows about N'Sync's Phantom Menace scene or planet "Stewjon," congratulations. For the rest of us, here's some truly bizarre trivia courtesy of Dorkly.

  4. Watch Out for Crazy Rumors that Carrie Fisher’s Daughter, Billie Lourd, Will Play Young Leia in Star Wars Episode VII

    Your eyes can deceive you. Don't trust them.

    It looks like Carrie Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, will be making an appearance in Star Wars Episode VII. Being that her mom is Princess Leia, it's not hard to believe, but it's not likely to have Earth Alderaan-shattering implications. But that hasn't stopped the rumors!

  6. A New Star Wars VII Set Photo, Gareth Edwards Talks About His Spinoff, & Simon Pegg In Or Out?

    Star Wars VII News Roundup!

    No, that's not the Star Wars: Episode VII set photo, that's a still from Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's CollegeHumor skit. But it's appropriate as today's Star Wars roundup features R2-D2, Pegg, plus new Star Wars spinoff director Gareth Edwards talking about his new gig, and more.

  7. Star Wars: Episode VII‘s Carrie Fisher: “I Would Rather Have Played Han”

    For A More Civilized Age

    I would rather have played Han Solo. When I first read the script I thought that's the part to be, always wry and sardonic. He's always that. I feel like a lot of the time Leia's either worried or pissed or, thank God, sort of snarky. But I'm much more worried and pissed than Han Solo ever was, and those aren't fun things to play... I had a lot of fun killing Jabba the Hutt. They asked me on the day if I wanted to have a stunt double kill Jabba. No! That's the best time I ever had as an actor. And the only reason to go into acting is if you can kill a giant monster. -- Carrie Fisher to an audience at the Hay arts festival in Wales. I'd wager there's a significant number of us who'd like to be Han Solo, so Fisher is not without friends in this area. And as for a desire to kill giant monsters, well. I think that's pretty universal as well. She also spoke about how nice it was to see her old costars again for the filming of Star Wars: Episode VII, and confirm that they all look "a little melted" by time; and had a great, biting answer for the question about whether she still has that gold bikini. You can read highlights of the talk here at the Guardian. Previously in Carrie Fisher

  8. No Plans for Leia At the Disney Store, While Carrie Fisher Says She’s Fighting For Her Hair Buns

    Aren't You A Little Short For A Stormtrooper?

    Last week, Disney admitted that they have no plans for any Princess Leia merchandise in the Disney store, a situation of distinct irony for reasons I hope I don't have to explain.

  9. Star Wars Starts Filming, Asks Carrie Fisher to Lose 35 Pounds

    Aren't You A Little Short For A Stormtrooper?

    Carrie Fisher told a Huffington Post reporter that her involvement in the new sequels was contingent on there being thirty five pounds less of her, which could be taken a lot of ways. For now I'll just say that I hope it was also a requirement for any other original series castmembers whose post-Star Wars careers have not been subject to the rigid demands of action movie fitness, regardless of gender. Oh, also principle photography began today in London, which we know thanks to J.J. Abrams' tweet of the onset clapboard. The Mary Sue is prepared to offer a preview of what this clapboard will look like after post production:
