  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:

  12. Carrie Fisher Will Reportedly Be Filming Star Wars: Episode VII In London For Six Months

    Aren't You A Little Short For A Stormtrooper?

    What you are about to read is based entirely in hearsay. However, it is also about Star Wars. I think we're all willing to allow hearsay where Star Wars is concerned. Follow me, here: Carrie Fisher will be appearing in an episode of the FXX comedy series Legit. The star of that show, Jim Jefferies, was a guest on Sirius XM’s Opie and Anthony Show. There, he told the show's hosts what Fisher had told him about her upcoming filming schedule.

  14. Mark Hamill Pleases Fans By Encouraging Less CGI In Star Wars VII

  15. Carrie Fisher Mentions Getting In Shape For Star Wars VII, We Can’t Tell If She’s Joking

    May The Force Be With You

    "I like being bought by Disney, because they never wanted to buy me before. I’m glad they are doing a new movie because they are sending a trainer to my house so I can get in really good shape. So I’m really eating a lot of sugar in advance, as you can see. By the time I really get down to it I will have eaten everything.” - Carrie Fisher speaking to and audience at the BMO Centre via the Calgary Herald. A few months ago, Fisher seemingly spilled the beans about her involvement in the next Star Wars trilogy then her publicist spoke up to tell us she was only joking. But George Lucas went on record to say she'd basically been signed so we were extra confused. Disney CEO Bob Iger at least admitted there were "discussions." So how should we take this latest statement. Fisher is quite the comedian and obviously she was joking about being bought by Disney but them sending her a trainer seems logical if she's expected to be physical in her role as Leia in J.J. Abrams' film. An official announcement would be nice, Disney. (via io9) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  16. Fanmade Poster for Star Wars: Episode VII Makes a Movie With the Original Cast Look Pretty Awesome

    For A More Civilized Age

    Adam Schickling put together this Star Wars VII poster, and as much as I'd like the new trilogy to focus on a new set of characters and feature the old ones as cameos at most, dang if this poster doesn't make me feel very nostalgic. Previously in Star Wars

  17. Here’s the Official Word on Hamill, Fisher, and Ford Returning to Star Wars From A Disney CEO Himself

    For A More Civilized Age

    There's been a lot of back and forth on the involvement of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford in Disney's planned third Star Wars trilogy. The stars say they're open, other folks say they're signed, other folks say there's nothing official yet (or sometimes Carrie Fisher tells the jerk with a camera who is following her around and grilling her about Star Wars VII while she's walking her dogs that she's involved just to get rid of him), and the big voice missing in the conversation is Disney's. Of course Disney doesn't have to say anything. Why should they? We're already talking nonstop about the movie. But CEO Bob Iger gave some actual official information to CNBC's Closing Bell yesterday.

  18. Harrison, Fisher, Hamill Almost Certainly Returning to Star Wars

    Disney owns Lucasfilm -- we're past that now, right? Previously, half of adult geekdom already ranted that the prequel Star Wars films "ruined" their childhoods or some such. So now everyone still willing to keep looking at that galaxy far, far away is wondering what's really going to happen next in the franchise. (The fans of the Expanded Star Wars Universe read the novels and already theoretically know, but history has shown that movies and books seldom get along.) Also, we already know that J.J. Abrams is signed on to direct Episode VII. Finally, the rumors and quotes have been flying around the last couple of months, but now George Lucas himself has pretty much cinched it: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford are probably going to feature in the new movies.

  19. Carrie Fisher Was Joking About the Star Wars Sequels, But George Lucas Says She’ll Probably Be In Them Anyway

    May The Force Be With You

    ... as will Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford. According to George Lucas, that is. (Oh, and can I just take a quick moment to say that we called it on Carrie Fisher joking about her Star Wars confirmation? Because we did.)

  20. Carrie Fisher Said She’ll Be in the Star Wars Sequels, But Let’s Not Freak Out Quite Yet

    May The Force Be With You

    OK, so, getting the important stuff covered first: Carrie Fisher was asked by the Palm Beach Illustrated whether she'd be in the Star Wars sequels, and she said, and I quote, "Yes." But here's why we should wait before breaking out the cinnamon buns in celebration:
