By: Dominic Jones

Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill spends a lot of interviews these days dodging questions about future Star Wars films he can't talk about.  The rest of the time, he's telling stories about the Star Wars movies he was already in.  But, what about the Star Wars films he wasn't in?  While Hamill typically avoids talking about the Prequels, he did have some thoughts about the intense, over-the-top negative reactions to the Prequel trilogy in a recent interview with Vulture.  In the interview, Hamill stands up for Episode I Anakin actor Jake Lloyd and reveals that he was nearly tricked into appearing in the documentary The People Vs.

Yesterday, Lucasfilm announced that the title for Star Wars Episode VIII would be The Last Jedi. Naturally, this sent Star Wars fandom into a fury of speculation as to what that could mean.  While, the consensus is that it has something to do with Luke Skywalker, there are still questions about whether or not Jedi is singular or plural.  One person who knows the truth is Rey actress Daisy Ridley, and fortunately one of Ridley's co-stars on the upcoming film Murder on the Orient Express is just as curious as we are.  Josh Gad, best known for his role as Olaf in Frozen, posted a video to his Facebook page of him begging Ridley for answers.  Check it out below,

DARTH DADDY's CUSTOMIZING CORNER: ERIC BERRY "CAPTAIN REX's AT-TE"

1 comments

This Rebels version of Captain Rex's AT-TE is a custom that many artist wanted to build ever since season 2 of Rebels premiered. Probably the coolest custom I came across since the start of the new year, Eric Berry's Rebels AT-TE with all the add-ons gave an already large vehicle an even bigger presence. There’s so many delicate parts and an abundance of details crammed into this lush playset. Eric admits that he had to “split the difference” on some things, as the toy is close to 80% in scale to the figures. As a result, some things like the cannon are somewhat bigger than they should be, even after compressing the parts in size. For example, he stated that you can’t pivot the cannon too far or it eventually hits the antennae. Most of it was scratch built. Lots of tiny little parts and details. Other cool features are a working rear door, cranes that rotate and pivot, and a folding rear ladder. My favorite part of the build was the work he did on the interior. He made only one bunk since they’d sleep in shifts, on the floor, or in hammocks in the command center. Then he tossed in a couple chairs, and a dejarik table. Opposite the bunk is a small galley and up on the wall they have a mounted battle droid head, “Clanker”, as a joke from their former days in the Grand Army. Other features inside include a rifle rack, welding gear, and storage above the bunk. Almost all parts are plastic except for some cargo boxes that were wood and skinned in styrene.

There's no denying Rogue One: A Star Wars Story went through a lot changes with extensive reshoots last summer.  The changes that were made to the film's first act have been discussed in the past, but there are more questions about what was changed in the film's third act, given there were many scenes in the trailers and featurettes that never made it into the film.  While the production team still aren't ready to go in depth about what was changed in the film's third act (though a recent ABC News report showed an alternate death for K-2SO and Cassian Andor), one of the film's editors John Gilroy, who was brought on well after principle photography had ended, did speak with iO9 about the process of putting together the final act of the film.
