  2. Two Droid-Building Star Wars Fans Building Props for Star Wars: Episode VII

    Help us, R2-D2 Builders Club. You're our only hope!

    Last week, the first production photo from Star Wars: Episode VII hit the Internet, and we were all pretty excited that R2-D2 was the first thing they revealed. Even better, it turns out that the two guys in the photo with director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy are fan-droid-creators Lee Towersey and Oliver Steeples.

  3. The Star Wars: Episode VII Team Would Like An Extension On Their Homework, Please. To 2016.

    May The Force Be With You

    Just last week we had word Star Wars: Episode VII was switching writers. As you can imagine, that didn't instill many of us with hopeful thoughts about the next installment of the franchise, due in theaters 2015. As it turns out, the folks working on the film seem to be a little concerned as well. So much so they asked for the film to be pushed back a year. But Disney's CEO said no.

  4. I Have A Bad Feeling About This: Star Wars: Episode VII Switches Writers

    May The Force Be With You

    My first thought upon reading that J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan are taking over script duties for Star Wars: Episode VII was: "Wuh-oh. That can't be a good sign. Why change writers unless there's a problem with the script?" Second thought: "Well at least it's not Damon Lindelof, Roberto Orci, and Alex Kurtzman."

  5. J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan Will Write Star Wars Episode VII

    This is a great move.

    Star Wars Episode VII will be written by Empireand Jedi co-screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, but he won't be working alone. Kasdan will be joined in his writing duties by J.J. Abrams who is also directing the film. This should put to rest any worries about how VII will fit into the Star Wars universe.

  6. Kathleen Kennedy: Star Wars: Episode VII Will Focus More on Story and Characters, Less On CGI

    May The Force Be With You

    First things first: I apologize for the Jar Jar Binks picture. But let's be real. It's Monday, and your day probably sucked even before you were reminded of his existence.

  7. John Williams Confirmed to Score the New Star Wars Trilogy, So They’ll At Least Be Good to Listen To

    Bum bum bum bum, buummm, ba da da baaaaaa ba. Ba da da baaaaaa ba, Ba da da buummmm.

    John Williams (not pictured above) will be scoring the new Star Wars trilogy. This might not be the droids news you're looking for in terms of Episode VII which still doesn't have a cast or title, but it would be difficult to imagine a Star Wars movie without a John Williams score. We're happy he's coming back.

  8. Star Wars: Episode VII Might Be Heavy On the Secrecy After All

    I will make it legal!

    In a recent interview Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy had some interesting things to say about secrecy and Star Wars mainly relating to how fans are an integral part of the franchise and "there are things you're gonna want to make sure they get to know." That would seem to be at odds with the modus operandi of director J.J. Abrams, which is basically not telling fans anything. But Abrams isn't in control now: Disney is. So will Episode VII be less hush-hush? Not so fast, says producer Bryan Burk.

  9. J.J. Abrams Might Not Get to Keep Star Wars a Secret…

    For A More Civilized Age

    J.J. Abrams is infamous for secrecy. Whether it was his hand in Lost, the biggest secret keeping show of all time, or perhaps most prominently now, the basic identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's villainous character in Star Trek Into Darkness, the director likes to keep his spoilers spoilery. The only other person in Hollywood who comes close might be Christopher Nolan. But Abrams' deal to make Star Wars VII isn't just any old deal. He's working for Disney now, and if there's one thing they're going to be watching very closely, its their historic revitalization of the Star Wars franchise. You should know what's coming next: Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy talking about the need to embrace the fan culture that demands detail upon detail before the release of a movie.

  10. 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:
