Andy Serkis Makes Snoke Sound Much More Interesting Than a Palpatine Clone in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

We've heard before that details on Supreme Leader Snoke, the evil overlord of the new Star Wars trilogy, will be fairly light in The Last Jedi, though the character will feature more prominently in the upcoming sequel. Now, actor Andy Serkis and Director Rian Johnson have let out a few more details, and the clarifications are a lot more encouraging.

Rashida Jones Didn’t Leave Toy Story 4 Over John Lasseter Allegations, But Over Other Serious Issues

Even if this report had been true, it's still completely irresponsible to name a woman as a victim of sexual harassment without her consent. It's even more upsetting because the actual reasons for their departure are worth being highlighted.

Netflix Just Locked Down a Superhero Movie With Daisy Ridley!

Disney has Daisy Ridley for two more Star Wars movies that we're incredibly excited about (including the one coming out in just under a month!), and if that keeps working out as well as it has so far, they'd no doubt like to put Ridley in as many heroic blockbuster roles as possible—but Netflix just swooped in and landed her upcoming superhero-themed project.

Disney Taking Their Marvel Toys (From Netflix) and Going Home … Because Short-Sightedness

Disney, like CBS and DC Entertainment, is taking a huge gamble on the fact that we love their content so much that we'll be willing to pay for their separate streaming service, where their content will be available exclusively. When will these media companies learn that streaming services aren't their direct competition? The streaming services have already won.

It was just announced today that "21st Century Fox has been holding talks to sell most of the company to Disney", which is news that anyone who's been waiting for X-Men (and Fantastic Four I guess) to revert to Disney which will allow for actual storylines with a full cast of X-Men characters. If this does go through there are few things we'd like to see happen.

Dear Disney: Star Wars: The Last Jedi Is Already Gonna Make You a Crapton. Don’t Be Greedy.

We all know that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is going to make a crapton of money when it comes out next month (!). It seems, however, that "a crapton" isn't enough for Disney, who seems to be putting the squeeze on movie theaters that want to show the film by charging them an exorbitant amount of money for the privilege. Well, some theaters aren't having it.

New Star Wars: The Last Jedi Behind-the-Scenes Featurette Is Full of Emotions

Director Rian Johnson is in awe! Chewy is sad! Carrie Fisher is ... well, Carrie Fisher. And now we're kind of sad. Man, The Last Jedi is going to hit us like a ton of logs dropped from an Ewok net, isn't it?

Rian Johnson Is Happy to Keep Us All Guessing About The Last Jedi

Star Wars is a franchise that's no stranger to big twists. The Empire Strikes Back even pulled a little fake-out with Yoda before dropping one of the most famous movie twists of all time, Return of the Jedi returned to that same well with Luke and Leia, and The Force Awakens, pulled a similar trick in the reveal of Kylo Ren's true identity. Rian Johnson, director of The Last Jedi, is enjoying fan anticipation of future surprises.

Relax, Star Wars: Episode IX Won’t Be a Return of the Jedi Rehash

Then again, J.J. Abrams, like the Doctor, lies.

It seems that J.J. Abrams hopes to alleviate some of those concerns.

From a certain point of view.

We'll have to wait the remaining, excruciating two months for Star Wars: The Last Jedi to know whether it feels as much like the Empire Strikes Back of the current trilogy as it seems, but the superficial similarities are enough for some fun for now. Check out this recut footage from ESB made to fit together like the new Last Jedi trailer.

Treat! Definitely Treat. Hocus Pocus Writer Says a Sequel May Be Coming.

Like the Sanderson sisters themselves, news of a Hocus Pocus sequel has been resurrected. We've been let down in the past by talk of a followup to the oddball Halloween classic, but this time, Mick Garris, writer of the original, is the one who said the magic words, so we're hoping that won't happen again.

Mark Hamill Can’t Keep His Tweeting Mouth Shut About the Next Last Jedi Trailer

It's apparently gotten to the point that trailer releases are as big a deal as film releases. At least, that's what you'd think from the level of secrecy Disney/Lucasfilm have surrounding every single marketing move. Not even Mark Hamill being Luke Skywalker leaves him exempt from the consequences of the Mouse House.

IT’S OFFICIAL: J.J. Abrams Will Return to Direct Star Wars: Episode IX, and I’m Relieved

Ever since Colin Trevorrow was fired from directing Star Wars: Episode IX for being a douche (basically), fans have been waiting for word on which director will close out this third trilogy of the Skywalker saga. Some thought Rian Johnson would continue with the franchise, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore. Turns out, J.J. Abrams will be bookending this Star Wars trilogy after successfully kicking things off with The Force Awakens.

Colin Trevorrow Reportedly Fired From Star Wars for the Most Obvious Reason

Former Star Wars: Episode IX Director Colin Trevorrow was whisked in on the back of his sudden, dinosaur-fueled rise to fame, but it's hard to say that his departure was surprising. Not only have plenty of other directors met similar fates at the hands of Lucasfilm, but Trevorrow's only other major film to speak of was resoundingly panned. But new word on the real reason for his removal is at once a new piece of the puzzle and wholly unsurprising.
