  1. So they've apparently auditioned over 2500 people for the role of young Han. Some famous names have been attached to this (including Dave Franco, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Miles Teller, and Rami Malek)... but I really hope they go with a relative unknown for the role. Someone with a resemblance to Harrison/Han, but not a body double... who can pull off his sarcastic charm. And also, I wonder if this will involve the new plot revelation from a recent comic in which Han had seemingly been married in the past before meeting Leia. I suppose it all depends on when it happened and why and how long it lasted and etc.

  3. Rogue One (subtitled "A Star Wars Story"), is the first in a planned series of Star Wars spin-off films, originally referred to as "anthology films". Rogue One is set shortly before the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, and will follow a group of rebel spies as they attempt to steal the plans for the Galactic Empire's first Death Star superweapon. Filming took place at Elstree Studies near London between August 2015 and February 2016, with reshoots taking place in June 2016. Alexandre Desplat, who previously worked with Edwards on Godzilla was originally slated to score the film, but due to production delays he was no longer available and was replaced by Michael Giacchino once he had finished up on Marvel's Doctor Strange. Notably, Rogue One does not include an opening crawl in contrast to the main series of movies. Cast Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso Diego Luna as Cassian Andor Ben Mendelsohn as Orson Krennic, the Empire's Director of Advanced Weapons Research Donnie Yen as Chirrut Îmwe Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso Alan Tudyk as K-2SO, a former Imperial enforcer droid Riz Ahmed as Bodhi Rook Jiang Wen as Baze Malbus Forest Whitaker as Saw Gerrera Guy Henry as Grand Moff Tarkin Jonathan Aris as Senator Jebel Valen Kane as Lyra Erso Genevieve O'Reilly as Mon Mothma Jimmy Smits as Bail Organa James Earl Jones as the voice of Darth Vader Although Guy Henry voices Grand Moff Tarkin, Peter Cushing's likeness has been recreated through CGI face replacement. The character Saw Gerrera is a veteran of the Clone Wars, and has been previously in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and had been mentioned in Star Wars Rebels and the novel Star Wars: Bloodline. Genevieve O'Reilly and Jimmy Smits are both reprising their roles from Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, although O'Reilly's appearance was relegated to the deleted scenes.

  10. The second Star Wars Anthology film ran into trouble recently when director Josh Trank stepped down from the project. Some reports say Trank was fired from the film after disagreements with the other key production crew members. In either case Lucasfilm are on the lookout for a replacement, and the latest rumors from Latino Review indicate that they may be looking to Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon to fill that spot. He has already expressed a desire to move on from the Marvel universe, after helming both Avengers movies and writing for Marvel's Agents of SHIELD television series, and perhaps Disney aren't ready to let him go just yet. Another possibility is the fabled Star Wars live-action television series which has been in development limbo for a decade but occasionally pops up in a rumor, and he is no stranger to science-fiction or fantasy on TV, having created cult classics Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and Dollhouse. No official source has yet commented on these rumors as usual, so little may come of them, but even the possibility of Joss Whedon joining Star Wars is sure to excite fans.
