Miltos Yerolemou Joins Episode VII Cast

TheUnknown

The BBC is reporting that Miltos Yerolemou has joined the cast for Episode VII in what appears to be a relatively minor role. One of Yerolemou's better known, recent roles is of the Braavosi swordsman Syrio Forel on Game of Thrones. Yerolemou's swordfighting abilities has led to speculation that he will have some sort of involvement with lightsabers, though nothing has been confirmed Yerolemou is actually the second Game of Thrones cast member to join the cast of Episode VII. Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) has previously been announced.

    • David Benioff and DB Weiss leave Star Wars project

      The creative duo behind the hit TV show Game of Thrones have reportedly stepped away from Star Wars, according to a report by Deadline.
      David Benioff and DB Weiss joined the Star Wars family with much fanfare earlier this year, to head up a new series of films starting in 2022. Rumours had circulated that the film was to be based in the Old Republic era, possibly an adaptation of the beloved Knights of the Old Republic RPG games.
      The pair have cited their reason for leaving the project as being due to commitments with their recent $200 million Netflix deal which would require attention that they felt would not leave them able to focus fully on Star Wars.
      In response to the news Kathleen Kennedy has left the door open for their return in the future, but despite this apparent setback there is no shortage of other Star Wars projects in the works; with Kevin Feige becoming involved recently and the Rian Johnson trilogy not completely off the cards (yet). There are also TV projects in the works, such as the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, Cassian Andor series, and of course The Mandalorian which launches with Disney+ on 12 November, and video game Jedi: Fallen Order also releasing in November.
    • Star Wars 2022 will be from Game of Thrones creators

      Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that the Star Wars film scheduled for release in 2022 will be from the showrunners and creators of Game of Thrones. David Benioff and DB Weiss's TV adaptation of George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series is currently drawing to a close, and the pair are apparently already hard at work on their first foray into Star Wars.
      This announcement has come as a surprise to many who were expecting the next film to be from Rian Johnson, and has cast new doubt on the status of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi director's new trilogy, although Kathleen Kennedy stated last month that Benioff and Weiss were working closely with Johnson to ensure continuity between their respective projects.
      It was announced back in 2018 that Benioff and Weiss would be making their mark on Star Wars, although at the time it was unclear how many films the two were working on. This is still unclear, as Iger has only confirmed that the 2022 movie will be theirs although two more Star Wars movies are scheduled for 2024 and 2026.
      Although we have a large gap between Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and 2022, Disney will be plugging the gap with their Disney Plus exclusive shows The Mandalorian and another series following Rogue One's Cassian Andor.
      We look forward to hearing more news soon.
    • The Weird and Wonderful names of Star Wars

      A promotional tie-in for Solo: A Star Wars Story has introduced us to some great new characters we can expect to see, including the fantastically monickered Therm Scissorpunch, a crustacean-like alien with huge lobster claws for hands.
      But despite being derided as the dumbest name in Star Wars, Therm Scissorpunch is actually quite in-keeping with tradition if you only look a little.

      First up is everybody's favourite death stick dealer: Elan Sleazebaggano frequented the clubs of Coruscant before he left to rethink his life in Attack of the Clones. Although later retconned to Sel’Sabagno, Sleazebaggano is typical of the tongue-in-cheek naming convention we often see with background characters in Star Wars.
      Did you ever hear the tragedy of Notluwiski Papanoida? This background character appears in Revenge of the Sith in the corridors of the theatre. The name Notluwiski isn't too bad until you realise who the actor is: it's a cameo by George Lucas.
      Sith names also seem to be chosen for their thinly veiled meanings. Darth Maul was trained to be a weapon, and was named after one. Sidious has an unavoidable similarity to the word “insidious”, which means to act in a subtle but harmful way; much like how Palpatine chips away at the old Republic. Even Plagueis has connotations of ill intent.

      In The Clone Wars animated series, Count Dooku takes a secret apprentice with the not too subtle name of Savage Opress. There are no prizes for guessing what his endgame is.
      It would be easy to see these seemingly ridiculous names as a feature of modern Star Wars movies, but they are present in the classic Star Wars trilogy too.

      Return of the Jedi is full of interesting characters, like the elephant-like Ephant Mon, Droopy McCool of the Max Reebo band, and let's not forget Jabba the Hutt’s jester Salacious B Crumb. And if individual characters aren't enough for you you could always speak to Admiral Akbar, a member of the aquatic Mon Calamari species.
      Perhaps Starkiller was a bit too on-the-nose for the boy who destroys the Death Star, but these other names do make you wonder why they bothered to change it to Skywalker!
       
      We eagerly await the release of Therm Scissorpunch: A Star Wars Story.
      In the meantime, Solo: A Star Wars Story debuts on 25 May 2018 in the US and 24 May in the UK.
    • Untitled Cassian Andor live-action series

      So it looks like the new Disney streaming service (creatively named Disney+) will be adding a second live-action Star Wars show to its lineup.
      Joining the in-production The Mandalorian will be a series focusing on Rogue One's Cassian Andor. (So obviously this is a prequel).

      Having sort of a SW spy thriller sounds like it could have good potential.  Plus there is the possibility of more K-2/Alan Tudyk. So I'M IN.
    • Star Wars - Resistance

      Just wondering if anyone watched (the premiere was Monday night on the Disney Channel; I haven't had a chance to see it yet myself) or is planning on watching?
      I know it's getting a lot of negative fan feedback because it's a "kids' show".  (Though it is strange it's on at 10 pm.) But come on, it's not like the rest of SW is all mature adult stuff.
      Or for the anime style. But I think it's kind of refreshing, to be honest, sets it apart from Clone Wars and Rebels.
       
      Anyway, here is the link to the StarWars.com page.
      And a couple trailers.
       
      I admit, when it was first announced, I was on the fence about it. Being a different animation style I'm used to. (Which is silly).
      But then I realized, heck, it's Star Wars, I know I'm gonna watch it anyways.
